Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Sentinel

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

*wipes sweat from brow* Whew, political correctness is a lot of hard work. But it has to be done.

ANYWAYS, we did it - we (almost) survived 2016 which, I think we can all agree, was pretty damn terrible in many ways.

Regardless, it was a good year on the forums - we've met some new faces, set out …

My eyes opened slowly as sunlight filtered through the leaded window tinted a faint purple. I heard the shuffle of feet both above and below as the inn came to life for the morning rush. With the ball so near, wealthy and able Okiri and others alike were pouring into the inn to be close to the festivities. As my feet landed softly on the pale wooden floor covered by natural woven rugs and accents, I couldn't help but gaze out the window to the boulevard below. While I had no real job at the inn, I was still expected to help out with small tasks throughout the day and into the night.

I dash through the streets, dodging villagers and merchants as I race toward the inn. My journey to work at the inn was typically uneventful since early mornings, but everyone was getting an early start to the day with the ball.

After a near collision with a cabbage merchant, I spot the inn and sprint inside. As I shut the door behind me, I see it was still fairly empty for the most part. I breathe a sigh of relief and walk hurriedly to the back, pulling my hair into a ponytail as I go. My pointed Okiri ears became visible as I tie my hair back, but I didn't mind. In a place like this, being an Okiri was welcomed and appreciated so it was perfectly normal and even expected to show off my heritage. Grabbing an apron off the rack, I tie that around my waist before heading off to start the day shift.

~Raemin~
I remain by my post outside Lady Iliyana's door, standing straight and keeping vigilant watch over the hall in case of any intruders. We had very few incidents since coming to the Armani Desert but it was always better safe than sorry.

I stroll around the streets of the city, trying my best to blend in, which wasn't too hard considering all the hustle and bustle due to the ball later tonight. And it was for that ball that I had come here; the venue would be filled with some of the wealthiest nobles around, and I couldn't let the opportunity to get my hands on some serious amounts of heavily laden purses go to waste. First things first, however, is need to steal myself a nice outfit to blend in. However, it seemed I would have to wait a while - I'd already scoped out a place, but it was apparently going to stay open just until an hour before the ball. After that, I could strike. But for now, I merely bided my time and used some of my remaining coin to purchase a pint of beer and a thing that I supposed looked like beef. Of course, I could've tried stealing something, and it's not that I didn't feel up to the task, but I would rather not risk stirring up trouble and losing my chance later tonight. So I let myself relax a little and sat in the shade of a tree, looking around at all the passerbys and paying especially close attention if a horse-drawn carriage or something of that sort came rumbling down the street.

"I always look forward to it," I inputed with a small sigh. "The Summer Solstice Ball is one of the only times I'm able to interact with people from all over."

For two years now, I've been kept in the castle, protective and hidden eyes kept on me at all times. . . At all costs. Papa was paranoid to lose his only daughter, especially since that incident with the bandits. That day onward, Papa has put forth a colder disposition, showing no sign of affection or care.

Maybe it reminded him too much of the day Mama died. If he had lost me, then losing her would've been for nothing. . . And that scared him beyond anything – not losing me, but losing the incentive for losing Mama.

Corlois Goul, knight of Albion, sworn protector of the Forevigor royal family, had at last attained true happiness. He found that happiness in the woman he courted.

Indeed, Elaine truly was a thing of beauty, her ivory face as radiant as the sun itself. She placed a slender hand over her mouth as she giggled. Her laughter sounded sweet, like the chirping of songbirds. "And I suppose he was no match for you, in the end?"

"Not at all!" Corlois was escorting Elaine through the city, a hand on her elbow, but he managed to mime drawing a sword with his free hand. "With just a helping of wit, bravery, and determination, I blindsided the ruthless Heijiki from behind, and severed his head from his body! Now he will threaten the peace of Albion no longer."

"Oh, how valiant of you." Elaine traced a finger between two of his bulging biceps, which the sleeves of his tunic did little to hide. She then rested her head on his shoulder, and cooed in contentment. "It's a fortunate thing that I've met you, Sir Goul. So long as I'm with you, I'll always feel safe."

Corlois smiled, suddenly feeling a warmth bloom in his chest. "And that's all I'd ever want." He might have only just met the young maiden, clad in a billowing white dress, but already he was fond of her. She was kind, and smart, and perhaps the most exquisite girl he'd ever seen. She deserved nothing short of the world.

He cleared his throat. "So, Elaine . . . "

"Yes?"

"The Forevigor family is hosting a royal ball this evening." He didn't know how soon this was, asking her to court him at another event so soon, but he liked her very much. "I was wondering if, perhaps, you'd like to attend with me."

The bright smile she gave assauged any anxiety he might have had about asking her. "I think that sounds lovely."

Corlois led Elaine from the busy streets of the Foolshold market, and the hubub of the morning grew distant as he walked her home. The neighborhood Elaine had directed him to was modest, but certainly not shabby by any means. The stucco-roofed stone houses were anywhere from one to three stories tall, and a gravel road cleaved the neighborhood in two. A pair of elegant black stallions pulled a coach along that same road, and Corlois heard the crack of a driving whip as the coach ricketed away.

With no one else in sight, Corlois turned to Elaine. "Which of these fine houses are -- "

A figure dropped from the rooftops. He landed on his feet right in front of them, making Corlois jump back. Elaine yelped in fright.

The white-haired man now blocking the couple's path smirked. He stretched his hand to the side, and a nearby shadow darkened, adopting an unnaturally black shade.

Corlois blanched. Was this man a --

"Heijiki," Elaine said, trembling. That confirmed the knight's own fear.

"Indeed," the man purred. He drew a knife from his belt, and pointed the tip at the two of them. "Money pouches out, now." He waved the knife in Elaine'd direction. "And any jewelry you might have, little lady. Hand that over as well, unless you'd like to know what dark magic feels like."

Elaine stepped behind Corlois. "Sir Goul . . . "

"Don't worry," he said. He put his arm between Elaine and the thief, barring him from hurting her. "I'll protect you."

"But I'm scared -- "

The Heijiki clicked his tongue. "So dramatic."

Corlois growled. "Listen here, Heijiki scum." He tore his sword free from its sheathe. "The only place where you belong is in the gutter. Move now, or I take your life as forfeit."

He expected the Heijiki to cower, flee, or grovel. Most would by now. Maybe he'd charge him and try to take his money through force, if he really was stupid.

Instead, the Heijiki just stared at him. Then he sighed. "Karra, if you would."

Karra? He had an ally? Corlois looked from side to side, trying to spot the Heijiki's accomplice --

A knife jutted out from between his ribs.

Pain exploded in his tomach, eradicating his every thought. He felt it again when he felt the blade stabbing him from behind a second time, and then dropped his sword as he succumbed to his knees.

When Corlois fell to the pavement, lying on his side, all he saw was Elaine's sneer.

"Men," 'Elaine' said. She wiped Corlois's blood off of her dagger with a frilly white handkerchief, leaving the Heijiki to loot the knight's unresisting body. "More specifically, Albirian men." Corlois reached for his sword, but she kicked it away. "A few sweet nothings, a comment flattering how amazing they are for not dying from stupidity, and then you've got them wrapped around your finger. It'd be pathetic, if it wasn't so amusing."

Karra hitched up her white skirt and stepped around the growing pool of blood Corlois lied, in only to stamp her heeled shoe directly on one of Corlois's stab wounds. Corlois hissed in pain.

"If Heijiki are the scum of the earth," she said, "then you're what's beneath the scum's boot."

She twisted her heel directly into his wound. Corlois cried out.

"Oops, sorry." She didn't sound very sorry. Still keeping her foot on his body, Karra leaned forward, putting more weight on his wound, until her face was only inches from his -- as intimately close as they had been just minutes ago. "Did I make you hurt?"

"Karra."

The male Heijiki stashed the rest of Corlois's stuff away in his own pockets, and jerked his head to the north. "We should go."

"About time." Without another regard to Corlois, Karra strode to the male Heijiki with her head held high. "Did you enjoy my performance?"

"It was marvelous indeed, sister dear."

"Of course it was." She hitched her skirt again as she walked away with him, and looked at it with distaste. "God, I can't wait to get this thing off of me. It makes me look like some simpering damsel . . . "

Her voice sounded far away to Corlois, both from the distance she put between them and the growing inability to hear. Too weak to even shout for help, the last thing Corlois saw before closing his eyes were the Heijiki striding away, with newfound riches and a victory in tow.

"Ah c'mon Kiel," I said, throwing an arm around his shoulder, "Don't be such a spoil sport and enjoys yourself for once. The festival is so fun!"

"You like it because it's prime time for you to pick up girls. . .," I muttered under my breath, folding my arms and glancing between the twins.

(@Lady Senbonzakura I added a part for Raemin in my last post in case you want to start RPing with him. If not, that's cool. Just didn't know if you saw!)

~Kiel~
I allow a small grin to spread onto my face as my twin speaks. I guess it wouldn't be so bad after all. . . "Yeah, you're right. It might not be a totally awful night. I just hope that one family from last year isn't back. Remember the lady with the giant feather gown?"

I smiled at the memory brought up by my brother. Many eccentric families were often invited to Papa's parties – after all, most upper-class families in Albiron were loons. Some families came from all over the Grand Keeps, however, and they were much more interesting.

"Mhm. Let's just hope Papa doesn't try to marry Kiel off this year!"

"Must be awful being the oldest," I said with a dramatic sigh, placing my other hand over my heart, "Getting tied down to someone so early."
