Reese gestures over to the two chests that are brought out. "One has stuff and one has books. Feel free to help yourself." She says. "I will be asking that whoever takes something, help give support for Compact's military efforts in preparing for the fleets. I'm raising support for Grayson, Solace and the Templars right now. If there is a cause you favor, let me know."
Margerie gets storm gray winter boots with blue feathers from a wooden chest for various gifts.
"Felicia!" Eleanor wanders in just after her fellow knight, and calls out for her attention with a bright smile. "Looking for anything in particular?" She trots to catch up and starts peeting into the chests.
Margerie gets storm gray leggings with blue feathers from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Ignacio casually stands next to Oriana as he looks over the items. His smokey emerald gaze glances down towards a stack of books. A faint grin crosses his face as he inspects a set closer, "Well, I am a bit surprised. I actually do see something that has caught my interest." He says with a chuckle to Oriana.
"Indeed. His name is Oleander." But people are starting to gather. "I shall leave you to your giveaway Princess. Prince." A bow of his head to Luca. "I have to go see to the Mercies." Roran offers, rising and tucking kitten in pocket and then the spider ushered to back behind that sheet of black hair.
"At this rate, I don't think there's going to be anything left." Felicia's laughs with a grin at Eleanor,"I always like to look, though, just to see." she offers with a slight shrug.
Standing back from the rush to the chests, Itzal is heard laughing when he sees one of the first to rush is a Princess. "My, and to think I'd see the day I would see Thrax so bereft. Bravo, truly!" he says in Cassima's direction. The Culler doesn't seem inclined to join in the rummaging, however.

Cassima makes her collections and turns, smirking at Itzal as she approaches with her wine still in her hand. "I am a creature of finance, my dear sir. I desire a good deal above all things. Can you deny that a search for a good deal is something of a universal desire?" she asks, raising her glass to the man nearby. "I don't believe we've had the pleasure, sir."
Felicia gets a plain spear of excellent make from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Silvio gets Paladin of Concepts Tales - Bringers at the Badger from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.
"Oooh." Eleanor sees something she likes and reaches for two figurines. She holds them up to Felicia, one in each hand, with a broad grin. "I have a collection." She turns one round in her hand, frowning at it. "I wonder if these ones are Magpie's, or the others."
With the winter's chill still heavy upon the land, a slender diminutive figure slips gracefully onto the grounds in the sweep of a long fox's fur cloak settled about her shoulders. Mailys let her gaze slide over the yard and those within before sweeping towards the monument a moment as others move towards the table of food and drink or the chests set out. She pauses there a moment. Hands lifts to sweep her cowl of her cloak back, raven locks tumble from within to spill over one shoulder while her emerald eyes slide over the names and deeds there. She turns after a long moment, a smile readily touching her face as she draws closer in.

Reese smiles over to Roran. "Take care and thanks for coming by." She says her direction. She smiles as Ignacio speaks of something catching his interest. She looks over to Eleanor. "Welcome Dame Eleanor." She murmurs, before noticing Mailys. She is given a smile as well.
Silvio gets Gray Mission Awards Ceremony Program from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.

"A good deal, certainly, and I applaud your pragmatism!" Itzal answers Cassima. "Yet I am a bard, symbolism is something we try to keep a keen eye for. And thus, to have Thrax so eager for Grayson's giveaways, well, I admire your humility. It is so very rare to find one so unhindered by pride. I shall have to put it into song!" And he bows gallantly, with theatrical flair. "Itzal Culler, bard, at your service."
Silvio gets an adorable brown bear plushie from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Felicia gets The Doctrine of Skald from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.
Duarte gets egg, cheese and bacon breakfast sandwich from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Luca's completely nonplussed by this whole affair, muffling a yawn behind his hand, and if it's possible - he looks even more exhausted from watching folks look over the chests. Something heard, a laugh and a comment, make Luca turn a glance over his shoulder toward Itzal. "Peanut gallery's funny." With a lopsided grin, the Lycene simply flops back into his prior sprawl.

Ignacio grins broadly at Itzal's comment to Cassima, clearly amused but doesn't add anything. He just gives Oriana a light nudge and chuckles.
Reese looks over to Itzal, giving him a gentle smile. "It is nice to you again. Bards are always welcome here."
Silvio gets Gloria's Uncommon Prayer Book from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.
Mailys returns Reese's smile and gives the Princess a graceful dip. "A pleasure," she chimes lyrically even as her gaze slides over the chest before sliding towards the tables set out. The young raven haired woman seems as interested in the refreshments as in the gathering itself as she slides out a group speaking amongst each other. A glass is plucked up between her fingertips before being drawn to her lips and a slow breath taken of the dark liquor in. "And fine tastes."
"I already have the King, so that's fine." Eleanor tucks her new figurines into a pocket and idly browses the rest of the items. "Princess," she greets Reese with a bright smile. Hearing Itzal's name, she turns toward him, looking delighted. "Itzal! Hello again." She wanders away from the giveaways and over to the man in question.
Cassima laughs at Itzal's introduction. "A bard? Goodness, I must watch my words then, lest they be twisted into unrecognizable psalms," she teases the man, good-naturedly. "A particular danger for me, as my words are garbled enough when they leave my own mouth. But if you are a bard that can appreciate pragmatism, come and I shall show you what I have collected. Figurines, you see? Something collected by my cousin, that will bring her great pleasure to have in these difficult times." Indeed, she does show off the figurines first. "Great pleasure indeed. And if pleasure and some small, momentary peace may come from my humility, I shall welcome it."
Oriana seems to be satisfied with a dress and a bird perch. She watches the rush swirl around her and smirks when Ignacio nudges her. "Now, about that good cause, Princess," she says, turning back to Reese. "You have Inverno's support."
Reese has another gently smile for Mailys. "Welcome to the Grayson grounds and please feel free to help yourself to anything in the chests, if something catches your eyes. You are a Whisper?" She asks. She then turns to Oriana. "Oh, thank you very much, Lady Oriana."

Duarte has spotted something of interest which he likes. He moves over to the sky blue hammock and begins to trying and untie one side from its tree.
Felicia gets Makeshift 'Bear'skin Rug from a wooden chest for various gifts.
"Not as funny as your own exploits, but I'm sure I'll catch up eventually, Your Highness. Your name still echoes among many a tavern songs." Itzal smiles in good humour to Luca. To Reese, he answers with a fine bow. "And i t is a pleasure to be in such fine company. My best songs always tend to find such fertile grounds in these gatherings." And then, why, it's Eleanor! "Dame Eleanor, you managed to find your way back from the Murder! I salute you. How does the day treat you?" And then back to Cassima! "Ah, but that is no deathly malady. Words can be unmingled, tongues loosened. It's a matter of the proper mindset." He tilts his head after approaching, observing the princess' haul. "Fine gifts, to the right ones. I'm afraid I do not keep such collections, most of them are instead here." he points to his head. "I hate leaving too many things behind. Theft is such a terrible plague among siblings."
Cadenza gets a cotton tunic with interlocking circle of cream embroidery from a wooden chest for various gifts.

Felicia apparently has browsed to her hearts content, though she does retreat to where she can keep an eye on things and poke her nose into the Skald book at the same time suriously.
Caspian puts Makeshift 'Bear'skin Rug in a wooden chest for various gifts.
Margerie has been drifting between the chest's and whatever odds and ends have been strewn about in the merry chaos. A bit of this, a bit of that. Just whatever catches her eye! When she's gotten a very mildly unwieldy stack together, and a book in danger of dangling into reach of her hound's Very Very curious maw, she heads towards Reese. "Princess, I'd heard about this the last time but couldn't make it. What a lovely idea! I'll be sure to write home and encourage folks to follow your example and support your works."
Cadenza was running behind with her meeting but she ran into Caspian on the way to Princess Reese's event. She made a beeline for once thing that caught her eyes and grinned. "Oh yes....." Looking to Caspian she'd laugh a bit. "....I'm going to get in trouble here. I didn't even know these events were a thing until recently."
Silvio has come here with a fairly single-minded purpose. The Prince heads straight for the books, and makes a neat little stack of them, one of each. "The things we do for our friends..." he can be heard to mumble, musically.
Mailys turns towards Reese as she speaks, "Officially I am not at this time though I do miss it so. A fair head turned my gaze, a brief whirlwind and now it seems I find myself working to build my house's trade and place in the city once more. I am Mailys and thanks you graciously. It is hard to stay away from such a gathering and beautiful things." Her glass lifts towards the Princess before sweeping out over the crowd.
Caspian lets out a little chuckle back to Cadenza as he follows her in, jogging along with the woman, giving her a shrug. "Ah yeah, I went to the last one. I didn't really find anything I liked then. Maybe I'll have better luck this time?" He questions her, heading over to the chest, waving to Reese. "Princess Reese, I have to ask...is this just you having too much stuff and giving it away?"
Caspian gets Llama Lamp from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Silvio gets a book honoring those of the 1007 Gray Forest Missions - L-Z from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.
Cadenza gets a Golden Hart Lucky Fortune from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.
"Huh --" Luca spies Duarte trying to untie the hammock, narrowing cinnamon-brown eyes at the other. A finger's lifted, although the prince is not inclined to straighten up. "Nah-uh. Unless you want to duel over the hammock."
Silvio gets a book honoring those of the 1007 Gray Forest Missions - A-K from a large wooden chest decorated with the night sky.
"Ah, you see, there is a remedy for that," Cassima says conspiritorially to Itzel. "It is to surrender any pretense of ownership of your own things, and simply assume that all things between siblings are owned commonly. A terrible sadness when you see your favorite dress worn ragged by a beloved sister, but a delicious revenge when she has no defense against you borrowing her best combs for an evening." Cassima grins once more at Itzel, who seem to have many people to address tonight. "I leave you to your socialization, Master Bard, and wish you a pleasant evening of such."
Caspian gets Diamond Scroll Azure Rug from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Silvio checked dexterity at difficulty 15, rolling 1 higher.
Reese has a smile for Margerie. "Oh, thank you very much." She says in her direction and thanks for coming. "I have alot of stuff and I got shopping quite a bit." Reese confesses. She then turns to Caspian. "Its various things. We need to raise money for the war effort right now. I like to shop and support the economy and the crafters too."
Ignacio lifts a hand over to Cadenza and Caspian as they arrive, "Hello there Princess Cadenza and Master Caspian." He greets them before looking over to Caspian, "You should look at the books Master Caspian. A keen mind greatly complements a keen blade." He says playfully to black haired man.
Silvio seems /barely/ able to keep the stack from overwhelming him. "My dear, darling Reese, you by all means have my support, but I am afraid I need to borrow one of your guards's muscley support. I will DIE in the streets!" Noble problems. Too much stuff for them to personally carry.
"Yes, I somehow managed," Eleanor tells Itzal with an amused grin. Which turns into a frown. "I thought you said she /didn't/ steal your stuff."
She picked up that fortune from her cousin's establishment and froze. Blinking a few times, Cadenza would just hold on to it for now as she turned to make her way to Reese. "Princess Reese!" Waving her hand she'd smile as she nodded a bit. "I'm so glad I could make this! This is a great idea!" Hearing her name, she'd durn to see Ignacio and then wiggled her fingers at him. "Nice to see you again...survived the night?" A grin tugged at her lips then. "We thought we had lost you...."
Reese looks over to Mailys, nodding in her direction. "I am sure you have many talents." She says in her direction. She then looks over to Silvio smiling in amusment over to him. "Oh, well they can help you get the stuff home."
"And here I thought most families didn't rabidly steal from each other, good to see tradition persists!" Itzal tells Cassima, giving a wave as social flow takes him away from the Princess' company, and instead focus on Eleanor. "I have six other older siblings besides her. Trust me, she would have had slim pickings by the time they were done had she felt the inclination." he explains. "Not to mention the cousins. Really, they were busy childhoods. Have you no siblings of your own, Dame Eleanor? Or are they better behaved?"
Caspian is already looking through the chest, finding himself a Llama lamp and a rug, giving a wide grin to the lamp as he heaves the rug over his shoulder. "This will go good in the house I'm hoping to purchase." He looks over to Ignacio, grinning over his way. "You disappeared on us! And sure, I'll check out the books.
Duarte can't seem to undo the knot on the hammock. He simply shrugs and moves on to look at other things.
Cadenza gets Glass Parrot Sculpture from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Cadenza puts Glass Parrot Sculpture in a wooden chest for various gifts.
Mailys tips her head to Reese, "Although small and humble, if there assistance the Corsetina family might offer please don't hesitate." Her gaze turns towards Iztal's mention of so many siblings as a brow lifts.
Ignacio shifts his attention over to Cadenza from Caspian, a mischievous grin crossing his face, "Your Highness, a knight goes where he is needed. Whom am I to abandon the requests of a lovely lady? I am just a humble man whom just does what he must." He chuckles and shakes his head, "Well, mustn't disappoint someone he cares about I guess is more accurate."
Felicia is at least half-eavesdropping, it seems, chiming in to Eleanor in support of Itzal's words,"It's true, sibling's like to borrow your things." she murmurs,"Sometimes permanently." she offers with a lopsided smile and a not towards Itzal.
Reese looks over to Mailys. "I know a little of your house. Mistress Mirari is quite talented and Master Rickard is too. I go shopping in the shops that your family runs quite often. Thank you for the support and well any little bit helps." She murmurs.
Silvio immediately pawns off the books on a guard and then brushes down his chest. "Ahhh, so much better. I see so many new faaaaaces..." he grins, and then flicks his hair over his shoulder. He heads towards his sister and eyes Ignacio. "Lovely lady? Are you talking about my sister?" He lids his eyes. "Introductions, Cadenza, with this tall, dark and handsome...?"
2 King's Own Guardsmen arrives, following Ectorion.
Oriana follows Ignacio and arrives on his arm in time to her Silvio. "No, your highness," she says. "He was talking about me, though Princess Cadenza is indeed, lovely."
Eleanor shakes her head at Itzal's question. "Nope." She pops the P. "Only child. And if I have any aunts or uncles, I don't know about 'em, so no cousins either." As Felicia approaches she gives the other knight a smile. "Dame Felicia, Itzal Culler," she gestures between the two in introduction.
Ignacio looks away from cadenza, focusing on Silvio with a smile, "Oh, Your Highness. I am not speaking of your sister, however she is very lovely. I am Lord Ignacio Fidante, Knight-Captain of the Rose."
Mailys smiles, "I shall pass along your compliments Princess Reese, they are both, indeed." She sips her glass in toast to that even as her form glides around the chests once more, not wishing to monopolize time of the gracious host.
Margerie bows her head towards Reese, the hostess with the mostest (and giving so much of it away, too!) and moves to the side to make room for others to chat with her. The path puts her somewhere near Felicia, and she smiles up at her fellow marcher. "Dame Harrow - I didn't get a chance to say what a pleasure it was to meet you, however briefly, the other day. Did you find anything good in the chests today?" The former countess turns the smile on Felicia's companions as well.
2 King's Own Guardsmen leaves, following Ectorion.
Reese looks over to Cadenza. "Thank you and it is very nice to see you here, Princess Cadenza." She says, seemingly flattered by her words. She stays perched on the edge of the fountain.
When Silvio laughed she would just shake her head. Seeing as they beat her to the introductions she would laugh a bit. "Oh don't mind him. And she is indeed very lovely....obviously he wasn't talking of me." Winking to Ignacio she would motion to Silvio. "This is my brother Princes Silvio Velenosa....." Cadenza would just nudge him playfully. "He's always trying to get me flattered....thinking it'll turn me into a 'proper' lady of sorts...."
"See? Further proof that it is a common form of bonding." Itzal says, indicating Felicia with both a wave of his hand and a grin. "A pleasure to meet you. I'm meeting quite a few of the King's Own at this rate. Quite a change from my last time in the city." he says to Felicia after introductions are made. "Then congratulations, you've succeeded in going through your entire childhood with your things staying your things. Unless you didn't, in which case lacking siblings means missing excuses." he smiles.
"Vio, Cad." Luca recognizes his cousins by sight, as he points at them, muttering to himself. His eyes flit on Ignacio, "Nacio." He rolls his shoulders back and sits up, looking to Reese now - and from. "There's just too many people here, Ribbons. How do you manage this social thing without copious amounts of wine? It's just so tiring," the prince exaggerates a sigh.
"Culler's, like Grayhope's, make up a goodly portion of the Burroughs, we've met, before, most likely, but not since we were young." there's a flash of a grin and the inclination of her head Itzal's way. There's a laugh with regards to his congratulations as she closes her book and tucks it away,"You're Mae's brother, aren't you?"
Looking to Luca she'd grin then, giving a wave. "Hey!! Nice to see you, cousin!" Cadenza winked at him then looked to Reese. "Anytime! And we should talk soon! WE can get a drink or something!"
Silvio looks at Oriana and smiles broader, "So indeed it is. And I just want someone to marry her." He teases in an amiable tone. "Lord Fidante...a pleasure. Milday...a delight. Tell me...do you worry for the war or long for the adventure? I was asked to pick up a small weapon around here, but I did not see any in the trove. I suppose that is refreshing though, that Her Highness does not have an excess of small knives."
Reese hmms softly. "I really could use some wine." She admits to Luca and her cheeks warm with a touch of pink. "Or maybe I shouldn't say such to you. We could both use some warm apple cider." She says, trying to encourage him toward more innocent drinks.
Caspian loses himself in the Llama Lamp, staring at it for a long moment, trying to figure out it's secrets. But then he looks back over to Silvio, Orana, Ignacio, and Cadenza, giving the group a smile. "Hey there. Yeah, Oriana and Cadenza are both beautiful women and we're lucky to have them in Arx."
"Well," Eleanor shrugs in response. "Magpie and Mae are good friends of mine. I'm down there a lot. And the Lord Commander has her connections. So." Where the Lord Commander goes, the rest are sure to follow. She wrinkles up her nose at Itzal's last comment. "I don't know. I grew up on ships, so I didn't have much to be stolen. It's not a place for a lot of extra stuff to keep about."
"Probably, but it's been five years since I've left the city, and thus my memory is... Well, let's just say some faces have changed, and the once familiar sights are confused with new ones." Itzal replies to Felicia. "I am indeed, one of them anyway. Now, Mae's younger brother, now that I am the one and only. Dubious honour, but it has its advantages." And then his attention turns to Eleanor. "Ah, now that I can relate to. I prefer to travel light, which, given my profession, is something of a necessity. Can't really drag a cart behind you when you're traveling." he notes. "Just my clothes and my lute tends to be enough."
"Forgive me, Prince Silvio," Oriana says with a laugh. "I have forgotten my manners. I am Lady Oriana Inverno, Voice of Count Donato." She shrugs. "We'll meet the Gyre as we've met every other threat. And we'll beat them." She shivers and takes Ignacio's arm, curling up next to him of a sorts. "Why don't we go get something to drink?" she suggests. " And Princess Cadenza, there is a matter upon which Lord Ignacio and I wished to speak to you in private. Master Wild's perspective would be welcome, as well."
"With a hit of brandy in each," Luca offers Reese, not-quite-seriously enough to be sincere. Or, just too languid to be so earnest. He offers a lift of his chin toward Cadenza in greeting, grins, and he looks back over the group with a brighter smirk. "Ori. That will do."
"You travel, then?" Felicia asks for confirmation of Itzal even while nodding for Eleanor's words,"I might have to pick your brain about a few things at some point, if you don't mind." though the way she looks over the gathering at large not likely to be surprising when she adds,"But not right now, a bit too busy around here."
"I am known for my infident wisdom," Caspian says back to Oriana with a little grin given her way, looking over to Cadenza a moment, then back to Oriana and Ignacio. "But I'll have to drop off my rug and amazing new lamp."
2 Novice Keaton Huntsmen, The Second leave, following Margerie.
Silvio cocks his head and looks towards his sister when the lady claims she and Ignacio need to speak with his sister. He narrows his eyes slightly, and briefly, then bows his head politely as they go to get drinks. Then, he looks around to see who isn't in a neat little pair, that he can harass with his sass.
Caspian drops Llama Lamp.
Cadenza would smile over at Caspian and shook her head. "Flatterer...you must need something." Laughing a bit she would then look to Ignacio and Oriana with a smile. "Sure! We can head back near the Lyceum ward or....my cousin's place." Looking back to Caspian, she'd smirk a bit then nodded. "Let's make a decision and you can meet us there..."
Ignacio cups his hands, blowing into them, rubbing them together in a feeble attempt to create warmth. His smokey emerald eyes look to the smaller woman at his side, "Lady Oriana, I really should get myself a heavier cloak or I think I will catch my death out here."
Caspian picks up Llama Lamp.
Since he's arrived in the city, Thorley figured at some point he needed to find some decor for his room. When the Princess advertised her give away - he was at training, but the former sailor knew he should arrive at some point - especially since she's helping the fleet. There's a lot of people already milling around as he makes his way over to Reese and bows. "Your Highness. Having success, I take it/"
"Why don't we head back to the Hundred Cities," Oriana suggests brightly. "I have a suite of rooms there."
Reese turn her attention to Thorley, giving him a gentle smile that touches her blue eye. "Oh, very much and welcome Master Thorley." She says in his direction.
"'Dubious honor'," Eleanor quotes back at Itzal, making a face at him. "You should appreciate your good fortune."
While others shift through the contents of the chests or round in conversation, Mailys lets her hands slide back to lift the soft fur of her hood up once more against the chill of the winter. Her drink finished, the glass is placed upon the table before she tips her head to Reese once more before sweeping her way out through the grounds. A brief social visit, an offer of assistance and naught is given and nothing taken as the raven haired young woman takes her leave.
Taking a peek at the gifts, something catches Thorley's eye, before he moves slightly. One may tell that there's an interest there as the knight eyes, but doesn't quite take up the glass parrot in the pile of gifts. "How much for the bird?" he asks curiously.
Cadenza would nod then as she smiled. "Perfect! Let's just tell Princess Reese bye and we can go!" With that she would turn and make her way over to where Reese was. Stopping she would smile as she looked to Thorley. "Sir Thorley....nice to see you." Turning to Reese she'd smile and curtseyed. "Thank you for this! It seems I have business so I have to be off sooner than I thought."
"I have. I left the city five years ago, and only returned a few days previously." Itzal confirms to Felicia. "So I missed the rediscovery of the lost Gods, the Silent War, and all other associated events and adventures, high and low, until... just now, really. I will hopefully be singing the songs of the Compact's victories in the coming months. Though whose brain do you need?" he asks, apparently confused for a beat. To Eleanor, he chuckles. "Rule of having siblings number one, don't tell them you appreciate or even love them until they really need it. Or, well, that's my rule. Most don't follow it, sadly."
Reese looks over to Thorley. "Oh, you can have it for free. I will ask you to help support the Grayson War effort in in which every way you can, any little bit helps, it all adds up and you don't have to. This is a give-away." She says in his direction. She then turns to Cadenza. "Take care and thanks for coming."
Silvio approaches Luca with caution, moving slowly to attempt to see what sort of mood he's in BEFORE he makes initial actual contact!
"Well, I can pick the Captain's pretty much any time we're both off duty." Felicia responds with a grin, glancing over at Eleanor, only to snort at Itzal,"That one I'll disagree with you on. But I meant your brain. Have you been to the Deepwood area and beyond?"
Oriana moves languidly after Cadenza, lifting her falconry-gloved arm to summon Shadow, and curtseying to Reese and Luca. "Thank you very much. I'll send a missive to our merchant ships to speed up shipments of goods to the Solace Knights," she promises. "It isn't much, but it should help a little."
Thorley gets Glass Parrot Sculpture from a wooden chest for various gifts.
"Cos," is the drawl that greets Silvio as he draws in closer. Luca shoves himself back up into a seated position, rolling his shoulders back and popping his neck briefly to make room for his relation on the bench that he was completely taken over. "You look skittish, why? What'd I do the last time?" He runs a hand through his dark hair, trying to recall. Then, his features lighten, "Oh ...yeah. Sorry about that, cos."
Eleanor gives Felicia an apologetic shrug and nose wrinkle. "I can't help you much beyond sea travel, anyway. It was pretty much just boats," she gestures with one hand. "And then Arx," she gestures with the other. "I've done very little else. And that," she switches subjects easily, waving a scolding finger at Itzal. "Seems like a terrible policy. You should tell people you love that you love them, before you can't."
Cadenza gets Makeshift 'Bear'skin Rug from a wooden chest for various gifts.
Back to list
