A Tour of the Event Location

[Firefly Villa, Corridor]
Occupying the entire of the northern wall is an enormous semi-circular window that stretches from floor to ceiling at the highest point of its arc.  Teak railings provide a durable safety measure that ensures guests will not lean against the polished glass as they gaze out its panes to the beach below.  Soothing moonlight trickles in through the window and bathes a paneled ebonwood door and a polished mahogany door in its silvery light.  You also see a gold silk drape adorned with a complicated aquamarine pattern.
Obvious exits: east, west

You step through the silk drape.
[Harbor Lounge, Entryway]
Silence resonates through the room, broken only by the soft melody of the sea.  The sound drifts up from a staircase embedded with sea glass arranged in overlapping waves.  Deep navy blue stone walls stretch down toward a floor covered in gilt-veined cerulean brickwork that has been arranged in a herringbone mosaic.  You also see a bright silver token, a bright silver token, the hammered silver Meliyara disk, a raffle table with some stuff on it and a gold silk drape leading out of the lounge.

[Harbor Lounge, Buffet]
The sweet aroma of champagne wafts from a fountain in the center of the room.  Bubbling liquid overflows from each tier, swirling ultimately into a crystal vessel.

[Harbor Lounge, Cigar Bar]
Faint coils of smoke linger in the air, twisting themselves around amber-globed sconces that are strung from the low ceiling.

[Harbor Lounge, Dance Hall]
The center of this space is dominated by a massive golden tree standing at its heart.  Beams of green and blue light filter in through the mosaic ceiling and dance off of the glass-paned walls.  Swirls of aureate light stain the ebon marble floor, reflected from the golden limbs of the rotunda's tree.  A faint tinge of sea salt permeates the air.  You also see an ebonwood chair draped with emerald silk, a cog-covered Deroandal sign and a Thistlie warning.

Orange-striped butterfly fish scatter away from their grouping as a hungry sea lion darts directly into the center of the massive orb.
A trio of squid float around the concave glass, each illuminating a pale blue glow in turn.
A myriad of red and orange hues flash against the glass as a school of flame angels dart around the outside.
A large dark blur moves rapidly toward the glass.  Something darts in front of it, catching its attention and as it turns to follow a large dorsal fin can clearly be seen.

An intricate webwork of gold branches knots in the center of the mosaic, spreading thin as they reach toward the outer edges of the room.  Glass shards stained in a gradient tableau of blue and green hues mingle amongst the branches, refracting the light filtering in from above throughout the area.

go tree

[Harbor Lounge, Observatory]
Heavy golden bars are delicately wrought into a series of overlapping arcs, creating a metal cage around the open-air platform.  A light breeze drifts through the area, stirring the midnight lacebark panels that drape from the surrounding structure.  Pale white moonflowers break through the dark skies as their vines climb amongst the golden crosspieces.  Sitting next to the staircase is a small table laden with refreshments.  You also see a tall gin cocktail, a black rose-shaped placard and a smooth lasimor sign.

There appears to be something written on it.

read token

look in chest
In the dark koa chest you see a bright green yo-yo (T3 Trick Yo-yo), a bright green voucher booklet (5 entries for Duskruin), a shimmering blue orb (account bound) and a plump stuffed toucan (EzScripted toy).

look toucan
This stuffed toucan has been created in a fairly realistic fashion.  Standing a few handbreadths high, the toucan has bright glass eyes and a brilliant orange bill.  Its wings are separate from its body, allowing it to readily adopt a flying pose, and its belly is slightly overstuffed, making the toucan extra huggable.

Toucan verbs:

Verb First Third
Clean Spying a bit of lint on your stuffed toucan, you gently brush it away, cooing softly under your breath. Quilic leans over his stuffed toucan, cooing softly as he gently brushes away a bit of lint.
Hug You stare into the glass eyes of your stuffed toucan for what seems like a small eternity, then, overcome with happiness, you clutch it tightly against your chest, feeling the telltale pinpricks of happy tears at the corners of your eyes. Quilic stares into the glass eyes of his stuffed toucan, just long enough to make it a little awkward, then suddenly clutches it to his chest, pinpricks of moisture visible at the corners of his eyes.
Kiss You regard your stuffed toucan happily, feeling a sappy smile cross your face. You lean over and plant a gentle kiss on the end of its curved beak, giggling slightly to yourself at the silliness of the action. Quilic regards his stuffed toucan with a sappy smile, then, with a slight giggle, leans over and plants a gentle kiss on the end of its curved beak.
Pinch You slowly reach a hand towards your stuffed toucan, then in a single swift motion, you grasp the end of its beak between a thumb and forefinger, making a raucous honking noise before releasing your grip once more. Quilic slowly reaches a hand towards his stuffed toucan, then in one swift motion, grasps the end of its beak between a thumb and forefinger, making a raucous honking noise before releasing his grip once more.
Poke You poke a finger at the end of your stuffed toucan's beak, pushing its head downwards. You pull back your finger after a moment, and the toucan's head springs up and bounces around a few times in a drunken nodding motion. Quilic pokes a finger at the end of his stuffed toucan's beak, pushing its head downwards. He pulls back his finger after a moment and his toucan's head springs up and bounces around a few times in a drunken nodding motion.

Quilic arranges his stuffed toucan into a flying pose on the flat of his hand and raises it high overhead, making soft whooshing noises with his mouth as he guides the toucan back and forth for a few moments.
Rub Spotting a slight discoloration on your stuffed toucan's beak, you wet a finger and rub it gently, sighing slightly with relief as it comes clean with ease. Quilic wets a finger and rubs gently at a slight discoloration on his stuffed toucan's beak, sighing slightly as the discoloration fades almost immediately.
Tap You tap a small button at the base of your stuffed toucan's neck, and it emits a series of throaty croaking noises. Quilic taps something at the base of his stuffed toucan's neck, and it emits a series of throaty croaking noises.
Tickle You play your fingers across your stuffed toucan's belly in a tickling motion, grinning impishly. For a moment, you think you see a flash of something in the stuffed toucan's glassy gaze, but it was probably just a trick of the light. Quilic plays his fingers across his stuffed toucan's belly in a tickling motion, grinning impishly. After a moment, he blinks in surprise at the toucan, then shakes his head slightly.

To be clear, this means weapons, armor, and magical items are off the table.  Your team's names will go on the shop, and you will be responsible for painting and stocking it.  I will be your point of contact and coding your script.  You can only have ONE new script, so choose carefully.  You have fifteen minutes to find your team and be prepared with your proposal.

Yukito nods at Tabubu.

Speaking to Thistlie, Traiva asks, "We come up with just one new script, right?"

Starletdawn whispers to the group, "Any ideas to kick us off?!" [I removed all the group whispers but I doubt it would be difficult to imagine how frantic the event was!]

You ask, "..and a "script" might include multiple interactions with it?"

Speaking hoarsely to Traiva, Thistlie says, "Correct, but a script can do multiple things."

Speaking to Thistlie, Meliyara asks, "Does the shop need to fit the grounds?"

Yukito nods at Thistlie.

A low chirping sound comes from within a small ebony cricket box.

Speaking hoarsely to Raelee, Thistlie says, "There is no criteria, to be clear, but we need to have enough to gauge what is being proposed so we can make a call."

Raelee nods at Thistlie.

Yukito ponders.

Yukito grins.

Yukito nods firmly.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "Ten minute warning, everyone."

Yukito dabs at his lips with his pinky finger.

Where the hem of Starletdawn's platinum satin gown skirts the ground, brilliant silver and deep azure sparks erupt in tendrils that skitter outward and die in wisps of smoke.

Tolwynn coughs.

Pipit just arrived.

Deroandal beams happily at you!

Deroandal has accepted your offer and is now holding a bright silver token.

Tabubu praises Yukito.

You accept Deroandal's offer and are now holding some cinereous paeline trousers with ivory snow fox buttons.

Deroandal whispers, "I'm glad I was able to work that out for you!"

You pull some fitted black leather pants off your legs.

You pull some cinereous paeline trousers with ivory snow fox buttons on over your legs.

You attempt to hum a merry little tune.

Yukito nods at Tabubu.

Glancing down at your paeline trousers, you notice that the creases are not quite right.  You tug briefly at the waistband, adjusting the pleats until you are satisfied that the fabric falls properly about your hips.

Deroandal put a bright silver token in his silk toolkit.

Yukito flashes a wide grin.

Starletdawn nods at Queatus.

Penelia removes a silver sewing needle from in her lace reticule.

Lylia grins.

Zhagen begins chuckling at Yardie!

Tabubu nods at Meliyara.

Speaking to Thistlie, you ask, "Can we skirt mechanical as long as it's not super useful?"

Speaking hoarsely to you, Thistlie says, "Probably not, to be honest.  This is meant to be straight fluff.  If it has any combat, enhancive, or magical value at all, that's going to be a no."

Laelithonel suddenly pauses, a look of consternation crossing her features as she listens intently.

Laelithonel grimaces as her black dwarf hamster suddenly cranes around her face to see something, its paw anchored onto her nose.  A sudden slip sends the rodent flailing and clinging wildly to Laelithonel's front before scrambling back up to her shoulder with an embarrassed and sulky squeak.

Tolwynn adopts an agreeable expression.

Yukito grins at Meliyara.

A cacophony of whispers rise around Starletdawn moments before silver and deep azure flames erupt from her platinum satin gown, sheathing her in flame from head to toe.  The stirring air tugs gently at her hair before slowly dying, along with the flames.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "Five minute warning."

(OOC) You quietly whisper to Thistlie, "A compass that points you in the direction of a port (or a set port)?"

Tsarmina folds her hands.

(OOC) Thistlie's player whispers, "Not for this, sorry."

Deroandal scoots over in front of Thistlie.

Yukito points at Xanith.

You point at Yukito.

Tabubu glances between Yukito and Xanith.

Yukito glances at you.

You grin at Yukito.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "All pitches will have a time limit of 5 minutes."

Yukito grins at you.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "Whoever is pitching the idea, please use RECITE throughout, so it can be heard clearly."

Meliyara appears to be trying hard not to grin.

Lylia says, "Yikes, I need to rethink everything now..."

Roelon's sliver of grey shadowglass, which is set against his forehead, dims and then suddenly brightens again as silver sparks swirl within the gem.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "About 60 seconds until the first spin."

A low chirping sound comes from within a small ebony cricket box.

Tabubu nods at Meliyara.

Raelee, Lylia, Naamit, Laelithonel, and Rozy

Thistlie hoarsely exclaims, "OK, first spin coming up!"

Rohese squirms and fidgets oddly for a moment.

Penelia sets her sewing needle in the palm of her hand and gently spins it.

The sewing needle comes to a stop pointing directly at Raelee!

Lylia recites:

    "Lords and ladies, but especially ladies, we welcome you to..."

Xanith shakes his head.

Rozy bites her lip.

Naamit put a bright silver token in her lambswool cloak.

Lylia airily waves a gloved hand.

From the shoulders of Starletdawn's platinum satin gown, spirals of silver and deep azure flame twine down her arms to coalesce about her wrists.

Tabubu begins chortling at Xanith.

Starletdawn whispers to the group, "What's a good name?!"

Rohese glances expectantly at Lylia.

Yukito grins at Xanith.

(Lylia gestures grandly at where a cozy wagon might one day be.)

    "The Gorgon's Galleon, where your hairstyle truly comes alive!"

Rohese blinks.

Thistlie applauds politely.

Rohese softly says, "Oh my."

Yukito applauds.

Lylia recites:

    "Within, you will find that the cozy wagon has an airy interior clustered with baskets and odd stone statuary of a diverse variety of frightened individuals, all life-sized..."

Rozy lets out a cheer!

Lylia thoughtfully taps a finger against her lips.

Lylia recites:

    "And what do we have in the baskets?"

Naamit places her hand on her hourglass girdle.

Naamit shifts her weight.

(Lylia pantomimes looking into something and draws back with a gasp!)

Penelia turns an inquisitive ear toward Lylia.

Lylia recites:

    "Is it a hair ornament, or is it a snake?"

Lylia nods knowingly.

Raelee nods slowly.

(Lylia reaches in and picks up something from the imaginary basket, arranging it on her head. She smooths her hair back into place.)

Thistlie raises an eyebrow.

Lylia firmly says, "Both."

Thistlie gives a short little hum of surprise.

Zhagen drools.

Lylia recites:

    "Instead of having wisps or curls of hair framing your face or tucked behind your ear, have a companion, a nest of vipers peeking out and watching..."

Roelon rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Rohese bites her lip.

Great Lady Jenina just arrived.

Anake suddenly fades into view.

Rozy giggles at Rohese.

(Lylia turns her head this way and that, modeling her imaginary snakes.)

Thistlie nods appreciatively at Lylia.

Naamit takes a drink from her lavender teacup.

Raising her hands before her, Rohese quickly backpedals away from Lylia.

Penelia rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Lylia explains, "The item would be wearable, and with a PULL, you could arrange your snakes in different styles. Coils or braids, perhaps, as snakes are given to them naturally."

Thistlie nods understandingly.

Lylia says, "Or with a TAP, you could rouse them to ire so they may glare at someone who distresses you."

Naamit whispers something to Rohese.

Yukito nods firmly.

Tabubu gives a sidelong glance at Meliyara.

Rohese glances away.

Tabubu nods at Yukito.

Rohese bites her lip.

Penelia laughs!

Lylia recites:

    "Oh, if looks could kill -- or turn to Stone!"

Thistlie glances at Lylia and contorts her face in an ugly grin.

A large dark blur moves rapidly toward the glass.  Something darts in front of it, catching its attention and as it turns to follow a large dorsal fin can clearly be seen.

Jenina shakes her head.

Lylia recites:

    "You could, of course, choose your snakes to go with any outfit. Merchants would clamor to work on them, or to add more, perhaps in a tiered design, so to speak."

Thistlie nods understandingly at Lylia.

Penelia mutters, "Some merchants."

Rozy giggles at Penelia.

Meliyara grins wryly at Penelia.

Speaking skeptically to Lylia, Rohese asks, "Clamour?"

Laelithonel's dark suede carryall shifts and rustles a bit, the sounds of high-pitched squeaks emanating from it.

Rohese giggles to herself.

Tsarmina looks thoughtfully at Penelia.

Lylia recites:

    "We hope you have enjoyed your visit to the Gorgon's Galleon, and if there are questions, we welcome them after the presentation. Do not fear being turned into stone."

Lylia bows.

Speaking hoarsely to Lylia, Thistlie says, "Very well done."

(Arianiss rummages through something on the floor, on a table, on a wall.)

You wrinkle your nose.

Starletdawn recites:

    "But what you'll find inside will be quite helpful in your explorations of the great blue wonders"

Starletdawn nods.

    "You will be able to PUSH the sails of your darling little treasures once you have painstakingly constructed and they will unfurl inside the confines of our selection of bottles"

The fact is, you will crawl through our shack of hobby supplies, peruse the dusty shelves, and it won't be about what is there, but what you will CREATE. The materials will be at your fingertips, make your own treasure! The map is blank, where will you paint the X?"

Meliyara recites:

    "Who knows what will be possible?! The fact is, you will crawl through our shack of hobby supplies, peruse the dusty shelves, and it won't be about what is there, but what you will CREATE. The materials will be at your fingertips, make your own treasure! The map is blank, where will you paint the X?"

Jenina agrees with Rohese.

A pudgy white dwarf hamster clambers out from Laelithonel's dark suede carryall and climbs its way back up to her shoulder, looking quite pleased with itself.

A tiny soot black dwarf hamster on Laelithonel's shoulder plops down and begins grooming itself with an almost comical air of fastidiousness.

(Yukito pauses a moment, looking anxious, then nods.)

Traiva giggles.

Jenina lets out a cheer!

Yukito signals, "Start a collection, or get a kit for the seafaring enthusiast in your life!"

Deep shadow forms, coruscating with metallic glints.  Palcron turns and enters the sudden swelling of darkness.  The sudden clink of coins and muffled footsteps is heard before everything dissipates, leaving no sign of Palcron.

Yukito bows.

Meliyara recites:

    "Start a collection, or get a kit for the seafaring enthusiast in your life!"

Yukito flashes a wide grin.

The long, orchid skirts of Meliyara's elegant gown puddle around her feet as she sinks into a curtsy low enough to honor royalty.

Darkness in the form of deep shadow contours, masking the quiet appearance of Palcron until the illusion fades.  A broken white skull transposes for a moment over his face, until he steps out into the ambient light.

Where the hem of Starletdawn's platinum satin gown skirts the ground, brilliant silver and deep azure sparks erupt in tendrils that skitter outward and die in wisps of smoke.

Starletdawn turns to face Yardie.

Rohese glances around the room.

Yukito grins.

Yardie recites:

    "Entering our shop, you'll be transported into a world reflecting the jungles, the wild, the feral nature that the outdoors displays"

Yardie recites:

    "A nice exhale of hickory smoke would produce: a mongoose hopping from invisible stone to invisible stone in a sort of weasel dance before dissipating"

Jaysehn blinks.

Speaking to Tolwynn, Zhagen says, "We have wares fashioned from big game, small game. Not sure about Squid Game though."

Thistlie quietly mouths, "Weasel... dance."

Jenina rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Speaking to Thistlie, Tolwynn says, "My team was Traiva, Rohese, Jaysehn and myself."

Like embers trapped beneath the grating of a brazier, the silver and deep azure flames held hostage within the fabric of Starletdawn's platinum satin gown fitfully brighten and dim with a slow but insistent rhythm.

Traiva flutters her wings out wide for all to see.

Penelia points her sewing needle at Traiva, selecting her.

Nosing about inside Laelithonel's collar, the white dwarf hamster eventually sits up with a dried-up dropping clutched in its jaws.  Letting the discovery fall to the ground, the white dwarf hamster chitters at Laelithonel, obviously annoyed at her lack of hygiene.

Laelithonel leans back, trying to ignore the shuffling of a tiny soot black dwarf hamster as it creeps from one of her shoulders to the other, whacking her a few times in the chin with its long hairless tail.

You ponder the meaning of Traiva's existence.

Traiva recites:

    "Once you do, you will find innocent seeming little discs, that can be attached to innocent long handles.
      
     Those discs, however, are not so innocent, because they will help you find all sorts of (worthless) treasures, for your very own!"

Curious of what is happening, a sallow octopus swims up to the glass and adheres its tentacles to the surface.  Noticing your attention, it begins to mimic the movements of those in the room before quickly growing bored and gliding away.

A low chirping sound comes from within a small ebony cricket box.

Traiva nods enthusiastically!

Traiva flaps her wings in a steady beat.

Rohese nods approvingly.

Yukito winks at Yardie.

Lylia leans softly against Rozy.

Traiva recites:

    "Yes, Ladies and Gents, those discs will give you a small time each day to help you find your own broken shard of glass or rusted metal scrap, perfect for anything you can want.
      
     Just add your choice of disc to your choice of handle, and start treasure hunting!
      
     The more you spend on your disc, the longer your disc will run before needing a well-deserved break."

Tabubu cocks her head.

You ponder.

Jenina beams!

Yukito blinks at Traiva.

Rohese giggles to herself.

Traiva whispers aloud, "Even Gnomes who tinker fantabulous things are not quite -that- perfect."

Traiva sighs.

Meliyara laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.

Thistlie gives a short little hum of surprise.

With an empathetic nod, Rohese discreetly takes Traiva's hand in hers and gives it a momentary squeeze.

Traiva recites:

    "And what is a treasure hunting shop without appropriate treasure hunting attire?
     Fortune Seekers will, of course, have just the clothing you need to look absolutely dapper, hats to protect you from the beachy sun, and sacks and pouches for your fantabulous finds. And, because we all know tinkering Gnomes will tinker, perhaps a few other contraptions to help you seek your fortune."

Starletdawn grins.

Rozy shifts her eyes to Deroandal.

Rohese excitedly exclaims, "Dapper hats!"

Traiva recites:

    "So run - do NOT walk - to Fortune Seekers to seek your fortune today!"

Jenina says, "Glass shard jewelry.. I can see it."

Traiva bows low, spreading her wings for all to see.

Thistlie grins at Traiva.

Tabubu whispers something to Meliyara.

Meliyara nods in agreement at Tabubu.

A cacophony of whispers rise around Starletdawn moments before silver and deep azure flames erupt from her platinum satin gown, sheathing her in flame from head to toe.  The stirring air tugs gently at her hair before slowly dying, along with the flames.

Speaking hoarsely to Tsarmina, Thistlie exclaims, "You are welcome to make your proposal, if you like.  Five minutes starts now!"

Tsarmina nods understandingly.

Tsarmina says, "Thank you."

Lylia gazes with interest at Tsarmina.

Pipit sways back and forth.

You smile at Tsarmina.

Rohese smiles.

Tsarmina clears her throat.

Traiva applauds Tsarmina.

Rohese turns an inquisitive ear toward Tsarmina.

Tsarmina recites:

    "As I understand it, familiars are sorely under-represented with regard to offerings tailored to them across Elanthia."

Tsarmina recites:

    "While companions, and even mounts, can be outfitted with collars, harnesses, legwraps, and even decorative baubles, familiars have fallen by the wayside in spite of being a core part of the adventuring way of life for many years now."

Tsarmina recites:

    "I would propose a shop that finally taps into this as-of-yet untouched market by offering what many of us already know familiars desperately need."

Tsarmina recites:

    "Hats"

Thistlie gives a short little hum of surprise.

Thistlie contorts her face in an ugly grin.

Rohese lets out a little squeal of delight.

Tsarmina smiles.

You let out a cheer!

Tsarmina recites:

    "These can be big hats, small hats, floppy hats pinned with oversized plumes, and austere ones trailing bits of gauze, all the better to allow each unique familiar personality to finally shine."

Queatus laughs!

Belair snorts!

Tabubu whispers something to Meliyara.

Jenina hoots.

Jenina hoots.

Tsarmina recites:

    "These hats must, of course, be able to be adjusted, customized, and otherwise altered by the various merchants across Elanthia, however in their core, they should be infused with enough magic to allow for a familiar to not only take the hat in hand when placed on the ground, but also to don it and be seen wearing it by anyone present and with enough sense to take notice by looking at it."

Starletdawn giggles.

Meliyara smiles at Tabubu.

Tsarmina recites:

    "Additionally, I feel that it is only appropriate for each familiar to be able to doff its own cap, as it were, whether by the flick of a canine ear, the trail of a feline claw across its brim, or even the tip of a serpent's tail to give it that jaunty nod of recognition when instructed to greet a ..familiar person on the street."

Tsarmina clears her throat.

Lord Medulis just went out.

Tsarmina folds her hands.

Tsarmina recites:

    "Such a shop need not be extravagant.  Indeed, I expect it to be small, though not quite as small as the many familiars out there, and sparsely furnished, though offering adequate refreshments should, say, a visiting avian wish to sample the pastries."

Yukito smiles.

Tsarmina recites:

    "I feel that Mist Harbor especially could take advantage of this untapped market, given the only recent establishment of the Wizard's Guild on the island, and before they start to get any devious ideas to develop such extraordinary hats first."

Tsarmina nods politely at Thistlie.

Thistlie applauds Tsarmina politely.

Speaking softly to Jaysehn, Rohese teases, "You could be upstaged by Owly."

Tsarmina says, "I hope that you will take this suggestion into consideration."

Rohese wrinkles her nose.

Speaking hoarsely to Tsarmina, Thistlie says, "Very well presented."

Jenina says, "Some with bells.. to ensure they follow you. I can see it."

Lord Medulis just arrived.

The sliver of grey shadowglass on Roelon's forehead dims, then suddenly brightens in a luminous plume of tiny silver and pale grey sparks that radiate out from his eyes in a feather-like pattern.

Laelithonel put a set of crescentic silver hairpins cradled in pale nacre in her fluffy mink wrap.

Rohese nods understandingly at Thistlie.

Tabubu carefully surveys her surroundings.

Where the hem of Starletdawn's platinum satin gown skirts the ground, brilliant silver and deep azure sparks erupt in tendrils that skitter outward and die in wisps of smoke.

The tingling sensation and sense of security leaves Medulis.

Naamit nods with satisfaction at Thistlie.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "Second, I will need five or so minutes of the winning team's time, so I would ask that all members of that team remain after the winner is announced."

A pudgy white dwarf hamster on Laelithonel's shoulder plops down and begins grooming itself with an almost comical air of fastidiousness.

Hanging on securely with three paws, the black dwarf hamster on Laelithonel's shoulder licks its fourth paw and spends several seconds carefully smoothing out the fur covering its lower back and one leg.

Tabubu carefully surveys her surroundings.

Thistlie hoarsely says, "Finally... thank you, all.  There were a couple of hiccups, but this has been a lot of fun, and I look forward to doing it again next year."

Jaysehn says, "I'll host one on the White Dragon if you like."

Rohese glances down.

Rohese pushes her hands down against her gown in an elegant gesture.

Medulis seems to lose some dexterity.

Naamit winces as a single drop of blood falls from her black bracelet.

Zhagen says, "It would be a shame for this dance floor to only be open once per year."

Speaking to Rohese, Jaysehn says, "The manse would be upset if you didn't."

Zhagen waltzes around in circles, the racket of his steps clattering on the nerves and setting teeth to grinding.

Speaking to Jaysehn, Yardie says, "I got the bed."

Rohese giggles softly at Jaysehn.

Zhagen taps enthusiastically around a rectangular pattern, adding a burst of extra clickities at each corner.

Medulis returns to normal color.

Zhagen jigs to the left, hopping and leaping about with abandon!

You glance over at Zhagen and wince.

Speaking to Yardie, Jaysehn says, "Yardie....if you leap on my bed, I hurl you from the window."

Speaking to Traiva, Starletdawn says, "Allll of the excuses to dress up."

Speaking to Yardie, Jaysehn says, "And don't think excuses about smoking up some Wrascaly Weasels would help."

Zhagen sways to his right, leaning into the slow twirl with a langorous tempo.

Speaking to Jaysehn, Yardie asks, "What about Frolicking Foxes?"

Jaysehn stares off into space.

Jaysehn rubs his steel grey eyes.

Speaking to Jaysehn, Yardie asks, "You wouldn't want to Puff Phaylen?"

Draelor says, "Tossing him from windows and roofs doesn't work....or I've heard."

Queatus glances furtively over his left shoulder.

Speaking softly to Yardie, Rohese says, "I would get Mirkk to toss you out of the window for jumping on my bed too."

Jaysehn says, "I'll just tell you the wrong day."

Rohese nods once at Yardie.

Traiva stares at Yardie.

Jaysehn slowly empties his lungs.

Naamit takes a drink from her lavender teacup.

Traiva giggles at Rohese.

Starletdawn grins.

Speaking to Rohese, Yardie asks, "Where's your bed at?"

A low chirping sound comes from within a small ebony cricket box.

Lylia says, "I wish I could have had a bit longer to work on the presentation. There are so much you could do with hair-snakes...aside from directing them to turn others into stone."

Queatus says, "I'll definitely be buying stuff from any of these shops."

Queatus nods.

Speaking uneasily to Yardie, Rohese exclaims, "I'm not telling you now!"

Lylia hastily adds, "Not that I dislike the rules; they were equitably applied."

Traiva grins at Queatus.

Speaking to Lylia, Yardie says, "You're telling me?  I was trying to word matters."

Jenina says, "All very nice."

Starletdawn agrees with Queatus.

Speaking playfully to Rohese, Yardie says, "So follow you instead.  Got it."

Lylia says, "I just like to think more quickly on my feet."

Rohese whines at Yardie!

Speaking to Yardie, Traiva says, "You had more time than Lylia did."

Roelon's sliver of grey shadowglass pulses against his forehead, giving off a faint pale grey glow.

Speaking softly to Jaysehn, Rohese frets, "He wouldn't do that, would he?"

Lylia chuckles.

Yukito smooths the metallic fabric of his cotehardie, and it glitters in the ambient light.

Speaking to Traiva, Yardie says, "Did not feel that way."

Rohese glances anxiously at Yardie.

Jaysehn glances at Rohese.

Speaking to Traiva, Yardie says, "I know I probably did."

Yukito smiles.

Speaking to Rohese, Jaysehn says, "You....are wise enough to know."

Rohese takes a slow, deep breath then pinches the bridge of her nose.

Speaking to Yardie, Traiva says, "I meant, to prepare."

Jenina exclaims, "I really like the sailing ones and the gnome tinkerer !"

Rohese glances uneasily at Yardie.

Haleen nods at Thistlie.

Thistlie adopts an agreeable expression.

Jaysehn says, "Roh Just....keep a spare teacup near."

Straightening her carriage with genteel grace, Tabubu gingerly grazes the neckline of her green organdy gown before lacing her fingers together at her waist in a polished, courtly pose.

Speaking to Traiva, Yardie asks, "What?  It was bad?"

Penelia nods at Thistlie.

Rohese laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement from Jaysehn.

Thistlie hoarsely exclaims, "If I can have your attention please!"

Lylia admits, "Everyone had more time than I did, having been spun first. But I was happy to go first, in a way; the idea was so exciting, I was eager to talk about it."
