The Silent Masque

Mirari Corsetina, Duchess Malvici, and High Lord Redrain have come together to host a night of silence and masks. The Silent Masque is a night of hush, where all guests are expected to communicate through body language alone while enjoying food, wine, and other treats. Some masks will be made available for those who do not come with their own. At the end of the night there will be a game of Silent Gestures, where people will finally be allowed to speak but only so that they may guess what the person is attempting to pantomine.

Small gifts in the form of perfume samples will be provided by Mirari Corsetina, even.

Comments and Log


Standing somewhere near the entrance so that she can silently welcome those who arrive is a dark haired woman; dressed in a stygian mirrormask of tentacles. They spill down from her corner of her face and curl lovingly about it; the metal somehow looking subtle and almost seems to have a slick, wet sheen to it. Each tentacle ended curled about a blood red carnelian. She's dressed in black leather and red seasilk; a corset with tendril like straps, and a matching boots, and a blood red seasilk gown with umbra tentacles sown in.

And she waits by the doors with a broad, charming smile. The occasional person that tries to speak to her when they arrives is met with a press of her finger to her lips. And a soft "ssshh".

A hand will gesture toward the tables in the back; expensive food, and little glass vials of perfumes.

Kieran gets Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask from A tall mask display case.

Someone wearing sky-smoke mask arrives, a slender, small figure in black-braced red seasilk, with a mask of smoke-occluded blue, like the sky during a large, long-burning fire. He sweeps a low bow toward the red-tentacled hostess, and walks stiffly toward the tables, leaning beside tem without partaking.

Someone wearing a black bear mask flanks the door on the other side of the woman in the tentacle mask, wearing fitted umbras in Lycene style. He, too, is silent, a light grin curling upon his lips as he greets those that enter with an incline of his head and nothing more.

Dressed in blue and wearing a silver and blue filigree mask, a woman descends the stairs with black hair loose and curling down to her waist. She looks about at all the silent figures coming in and drifts towards one of the couches to sit with wide blue eyes training from masked face to masked face.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers's stride is relaxed with a sense of pride, or confidence, in the given sway of legs. The person's gender is marked by broad shoulders and lithe build, or is it? The figure is covered so much in those glossy black feathers draping around black leathers, that it would take a moment to guess one way or another. Typically wearing trousers to a masq defines one way or another, so he, looks at the gathering and notes the masks, a few in particular standing out above the rest. Raven, turns, with silver eyes staring out and assessing.

A pair of Ice Bears wander in. The duo dressed in pale blue silks lined in ice bear fur with full headmasks. Eyes peek out from the black veil of fabric in the masks. A pause is given to the one wearing the stygian tentacled mirrormask, a soft growl given from the snarling Ice Bear and a tilt of its head before it turns and begins to move further into the great hall.

Denica gets a mask representing a starred night from A tall mask display case.

    Either the doors open or they were open already, like they damn well shoulda been, but all the same, some stupid Doll walks through like she means business, forcefully struts over toward the mask display case, pulls it open and glares amongst its offerings, setting her hands on her hips with authority.

Doll gets an expressionless ceramic mask with black eyes and lips from A tall mask display case.

Someone wearing sky-smoke mask folds his arms loose around his narrow self and pays a sidelong curious attention to raven and his mass of feathers and Doll and her bare-faced indecision. He'll work up to this body language thing.

    In short order, that Doll holds up her mask of choice, rolls her eyes at it, then puts it on with all the reverence for someone else's property if that someone really offended her greatly.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask walks in wearing the flamboyant and colorful feathers of a peacock as a mask. The rest of the man, or at least one can assume a man from a lack of curves, wears rather simple garb. He offers a quiet dip of his head to both the woman and the man at the door, before striding in towards the drinks, snagging a glass of something to sip on, doing so as noisily as possible with a smirk.

     A raven-haired figure in austere, shimmering smoke-gray seasilk steps in hastily and stops to pick out a mask to wear for the occassion. A mask of a starred night sky, and it suits her very well. She offers a silent curtsy to the room, mannerly, and patters off toward the refreshments. Step, step, twirl - and she dances toward one of those corners to perch and people watch.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask looks about as she sinks onto a couch with slow movements. She sweeps her raven black locks over her shoulder so she doesn't crush the loose curls set into them. She looks towards the drinks longingly.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night has joined the a steel-edged table inlaid with an ebony Raptor.

The incredibly smaller of the ice bear pair doesn't growl, just looks to the tentacled individual and follows their partner further into the room.

The Cecaelia dips her chin toward the snarling ice bear, and lifts a hand to her lips. She doesn't quite *shush* him, but her finger does tap her lips twice at that little grown. And turns toward the sky masked figure, green eyes shift over him for several long moments- from head to toe and then back up again. Studying his clothing and then his mask. At the end of it she grins at him brightly. Her hands lifting to press together once in a silent clap. She turns briefly and eyes over Doll at the mask display, before turning on to greet the next person. Briefly lifting her fingers to the feathered peacock in a wave before turning to the man across from her, dipping her chin to him, and then glancing back toward the raven haired starry night, lifting a hand and wiggling figures.

The smaller ice bear gets a wink of green eyes, and a grin.

    So that irritable under-dressed female in the ceramic mask might be forming a sneer or a smile beneath her full face-covering, but it's hard to tell. HER body language likely gives away that she must be a Malvici though, maybe even the Duchess herself, because clearly she owns the place, strutting through the room towards some supposedly-decadent food and treats. She sticks her whole bruised-knuckled hand in some bowl full of one or the other and takes a heaping fistful, holding it up to sniff at. Oh, dammit. They're vegetables. She's clearly pissed off now.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear moves with Smiling Ice Bear beyond the entry into the great hall. The Snarling Bear turns seems to take note of where people meander to and then begins to turn and make its way towards the table where refreshments are. Movingly slowly around people as needed.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers extends his arms in a flap, rustling the feathers of leather and those of real raven make as his lithe figure glides toward any apparent dancing floor. The gesture next, to Sky-Smoke, is of greeting with a wiggled finger wave, before with a sweeping of a raven's beak, he bows and presents his black gloved hand out for /anyone/ to take. Music is playing and the raven wants to dance.

    That raven-masked guy gets a palm full of vegetables when the ceramic-masked woman walks by. Apparently this was a better alternative to eating them. She returns to the food table.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers looks confused as weight falls into his hand and when he tilts his head to look, because having a beak means it prevents a full on look thus the tilt, he has been gifted veggies. Huh! Palms curl up and he pops a carrot into his mouth. Feeding the bird is an alternative he doesn't seem to mind!

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets comes walking in looking around seeing all the masks in the hall, breathing deeply the lion walks in further staying near the the door but looking about a small smirk forms under the mask.

Someone wearing sky-smoke mask has his face mostly obscured by the textured mask, but he does manage a flashed grin back at the cecaelia. He gestures along his hair, drawing dangles with his finger. His attention swifts back to raven and ceramic, and he has to pointedly stifle a laugh, his eyes brightening briefly behind the eyeholes.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night wiggles fingers back to wave at the tentacled columbino. It's a shame that this mask covers the entire wearer's face - it removes the starred night's very animated expressions. Also, it makes it difficult to drink. She has to twist, turning away from the revellers, to lift up the edge of her mask and partake of her wine. Copiously. No, seriously, the little thing can chug. She sets the empty goblet aside and drapes herself into the seat she's chosen.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask bites back a chuckle at the handful of vegetables the raven masked man ends up with. Instead of laughing, he points to the man and places his other hand on his belly mimicking a loud huffaw.

Someone wearing Mask of A Smiling Ice Bear follows the snarling ice bear toward those refreshments and looks left and right, taking in the sight of all the masks and costumes. They remain silent though. The refreshments will prove a problem though, with thier masks and she looks over to the snarling bear, tilting their head.

    More selective this time, the underdressed woman in the ceramic mask shoulders her way past some girl in a stupid bear mask towards something chocolatey. Yes, that's definitely chocolate, and more worth taking a heaping fistful of apparently, which she does. Her other hand rises first to edge her mask up, then pop a couple chocolates in her mouth before she struts away, skirt swirling around her legs a bit violently just from how strongly she moves.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask rises and walks out onto the floor looking at the RAVEN masked man? with a smile. She seems content to let him snack o n his veggies in the mean time.

Aida, 6 Pravus Honor Guard arrive, following Someone wearing a glimmering columbina mask.

Someone wearing an expressionless ceramic mask with black eyes and lips has joined the a pair of red luxurious couches.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers's face is mostly masked and the piece of carrot goes up underneath a silken black veil, crunching heard. The headmoves of the figure wearing the Raven mask, are because of the long raven beak and the placement of it, so he has to tilt his head and shoot a silver eyed look to notice the point in his direction and the belly wrapping. His arms gesture up, bent at the elbows, palms up, and shrugs. Raven turns to Blue and Silver Filigree, extending his hand out, offering veggie treats with a prompting of palm a few times as if to ask silently.

    One of those luxurious couches gets the food table treatment from the ceramic-masked woman next, though instead of bruised knuckles it at least gets her ass. The cushions sink beneath. Her legs cross. She looks through the room, moving her mask enough to eat some more chocolates. Her body language apparently reads hungry for now. At least for chocolates.

At the door there is a woman dressed in a stygian mirrormask of tentacles, and black leather, and crimson seasilk to match it. She's there to greet those who come in with a silent smile, and a wave of her hand. Across from her is a man in a black bear mask.

The Cecaelia does shift a moment to lift her chin up to the smokey sky once more; grinning at his full of fingers through her hair. A glance then is given toward the raven masked man with his gift of veggies. A little shake of her head is given, lips smiling brightly.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom walks into the Masquerade, fully covered in a deep green silk gown and wearing a ceramic mask that makes her seem almost like a walking tree. Not an inch of the woman can be seen beneath the acoutrement, but it is clear, at least, that she is indeed a woman by the shape of her body beneath that silk dress. She lowers her head in a bow towards whomever greets her at the door before slipping further into the gathering.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask shakes her head at the Raven Mask and curtsies as one might at the start of a dance vefore straightening, indicating she'll wait for him to finish his veggies. Blue eyes meet silver for a moment.

Aida, 6 Pravus Honor Guard leave, following Belladonna.

Someone wearing sky-smoke mask draws his attention over to tree and bloom, that attention a bit narrowed and over-focused. His lips thin into a stiff line and he pushes himself off the wall.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers bounces his shoulders up at the refusal and then dramatically pushes out his side, so that anyone watching can see him extend a pocket on his tunic wide enough, his head cocked, and then a playful drop of veggies goes into his pocket for safe keeping, as the soft pat pat suggests. Then, with a flourish of arms he presents a winged bow to the curtsey dropped before him, straightening up with his hand extending to the Blue and Silver Filigree Masked woman, to draw her into the dance that fits the music.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask goes back to sipping his glass of random liquor loudly, as he watches the quiet participants attempt to convey their thoughts without words. Finally, getting bored of being a wallflower, he moves towards others to join the "conversation." The colorfully feathered one approaches the woman in the starry night mask and begins gesticulating a 'hello, would you like to dance?,' offering his hand.

    The question of the hour must be what the body language is of someone who shit themselves. At least, if you ask the woman in the ceramic mask anyway. Glancing to each side, she plucks a piece of chocolate out, flattens it against her palm, then reaches aside to delicately place it on the seat of the other luxurious red couch. She sits back afterward, humming.

Someone wearing a black bear mask pulls away from the door as people continue in, moving towards the woman in the tentacle mask. He flashes her a wide grin, before offering his arm to her without a word. There is soft, quiet music playing, Lycene style, floating through the air and drifting amongst the masked participants. He cocks his head to the dance floor, and then looks back to the tentacle-masked woman, a question in his gaze.

    Her eyes go to each side again. Someone must be wearing white pants in here. WIth any lucl.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear's arms are there to catch the Smiling Ice Bear when she is shoved and he looks at the ceramic masked woman after she goes to sit. There is a long look in that direction and then the Snarling Bear takes the Smiling Bear and begins to walk out towards the dance floor.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino checked perception at difficulty 15, rolling 4 higher.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night hops up, all expressionless delight to accept the peacock's offer to dance. There's a quick little dip, a silent 'after you' gesture toward the dancefloor and she follows the proudly strutting fowl to the dancefloor.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers checked dexterity + performance at difficulty 15, rolling 26 higher.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask takes the Raven Mask's hand and moves into the dance with him with an amused smile. She settles a hand on his waist moving with some familiarity.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask checked charm + performance at difficulty 15, rolling 12 higher.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night checked dexterity + performance at difficulty 15, rolling 9 higher.

Someone wearing Mask of A Smiling Ice Bear has been watching that woman in the ceramic mask since she got shouldered. The smiling ice bear looking there, following. She starts to head that way but the snarling bear stops her and instead she is being guided to the dance floor. That it brings her past the ceramic face, underdressed woman is a bonus and as they pass, down comes a foot hard on the ceramic ill mannered woman's foot and then off they go to the dance floor to dance.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino's eyes shift over and she either sees the ceramic masked woman putting the chocolate down, or she simply sees it on the cushion. A hand is lifted toward the black bear across from her, and she leaves her post at the door. Striding across the hall to pick up the piece of chocolate from the red couch. It's held between fingers encased with diamondplate claws. Green eyes then settle onto the ceramic masked woman, and she lifts one of those diamondplate fingers and points at her.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask checked dexterity + performance at difficulty 15, rolling 17 higher.

    Doing a quick doubletake at the masked person pointing at her, the ceramic masked woman, clearly a proper lady of the highest noble blood and all that, you know, being really influential and all, looks back, raises a hand and innocently points at herself, grey eyes fluttering beneath her mask. After a second she brings a couple fingers to her mask's black lips, touches them, and appears to blow the Cecaelia a kiss.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask grins, if it can be seen from the right angle, as his offer to dance is accepted, and moves to the dance floor with the starry nighted woman. Once on the floor, he manages to distract from his mediocre footwork with additional flamboyant gestures and moves.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers carries the first steps with a confident and commanding ease with ultimate whistful grace, as if he were flying as his costume might suggest. The leadership of the silver-eyed Raven ensures that his partner, the lady in the Blue and Silver mask, captivate across the dance floor. Keeping them away from other couples, the Raven-mask flirts with the music and takes complicated steps that he successfully pulls off and guides his lady dancer partner through, his hold upon her just as familiar. Their flair and style are suggestive of them not being strangers.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino shoots the ceramic masked woman another looks, green eyes narrowed and unamused. She then swirls and heads to the refreshments, picking up two glasses of Corsetina wine. She makes her way back to the door and holds one out to the black bear.

Green eyes shift toward the dancers on the floor, and she smiles. Her chin lifted upward, and then head to the side. Eyebrows raised in a question at him.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night smiles behind the mask. Offering her own the slightly better than medicore dancing skills to the the peacock's style. It's managable, it's graceful enough. No one gets their feet crushed in the process. It's a shame though, because the starry night wants to laugh. Instead, she shakes with the withheld laughter.

    Beforethe Cecaelia quite turns away, the ceramic-masked woman is helpfully offering a palm with a chocolate on it, and when she's actually walking away, the back of her hand instead lays over her forehead with the utmost in really bad dramatic displays. Woe is her, at least for a second.
    She eats the chocolate.

Someone wearing a black bear mask watches the woman in the Cecaelia with humour in his eyes, his lips curving into silent laughter despite the masked woman's light amusement. He steps towards her when she returns, accepting the glass of wine with an incline of his head, giving it a sniff before he shrugs his shoulders and drains the glass in a single gulp.

Someone wearing sky-smoke mask draws one finger under the fall of his mask, exhales visibly and almost audibly, and treads out.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom seems content to watch the dancers on the floor for a time. Unable to eat, drink, or talk tonight, she eventually makes her way over to the perfumes, lifting each one to smell them through the holes placed in the ceramic mask's nose.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear draws his partner in out on the dance floor and wraps his arms around her to tuck her in against him so they can dance close. The Snarling Ice Bear watching over her shoulder for a few moments and then tilts in towards his partner, mask to mask while they start to take a slow easy dance among the other couples.

Valerio gets Scaled Horned Serpent Mask from A tall mask display case.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask has to hold back his own laughter at starry night's quivering form, as she tries to keep from laughing. He nods enthusiastically in agreement with the sentiment, before trying to gesture a question of whether she wants to dance again, before the contest begins. Then he looks over at the underdressed, emotionless masked woman and shakes his head with a smirk.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night nods in the positive, hopping in place. Yes, the gestures say. The starry night also holds up a finger to indicate one more dance before that other game begins. She enjoys swirling around in her seasilk, and she makes a slightly exaggerated show of it.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets heads over in the direction of the Menagerie Naso Mask nodding his head, he seems to stand near the other looking around, those red garnet eyes looking over each person here.

    When that idiot in the Peacock mask looks her way, the underdressed ceramic-masked woman thumbs a shoulder of her top, causing a bounce of some cleavage to accompany a waggle of her brows before she slouches back against her couch and gives her shoulders a roll.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask moves and twirls in the arms of the Raven masked man. She smiles, enjoying the complication of steps and glancing to Lion mask and giving Raven's arm a light squeeze before mimicking holding a cup and tapping her lips as she looks at her dance partner.

    The ceramic masked's wiggle-waggle causes the starry night to stare over and around her peacock(ed) dance partner. Thankfully, a full face mask covers a full face blush.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers ends them in an expected flourish with the music, his beak-faced nodding to the gesture of holding a cup. His hand does a rolling sort of wave that ends in a palm upward flare to indicate their direction, that happens to be toward the Lion mask, as well as the drinks.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask leads the woman of the stars through a more vibrant dance, this time, pulling her closer and moving through circular motions, occasionally holding her apart so she can spin on her own, since she has a shown a preference for swishing about. He is a bit distracted in the dancing, that he only gets a passing look at the emotionless masked woman, causing him to bite back another laugh as he tries to maintain his rhythm.

Someone wearing Mask of A Smiling Ice Bear tucks in close to the Snarling Bear as they start to dance. She's petite enough to rest the side of her masked head against his chest as they start to move in time to the music, doing her best not to step on her partners feet or the feet of others. The woman is clearly not a dancer normally and seems to come close to stumbling a few times.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night skips, whirls, and springs through a much more lively dance. Possibly not in rhythm, but, enjoying herself anyhow. At least until the rhythm catches up to her and she giggles - once.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom sets down the last bottle of perfume she had been testing, then wanders away from the table to watch the dancing once more. The movements of the woman wearing a starred night mask catch her eye, and the direction the mask is facing seems to indicate she and her peacock friend are watched for some time before the dance of the raven and the woman in the silver filigree mask takes her focus.

    The ceramic-masked woman's head turns sharply and her eyes narrow behind her mask's eyeslits like she'd heard someone say something unpleasant nearby. Or, possibly heard someone fart. Either way, she can be heard grunting, and abruptly her legs uncross and she's getting up to her feet, stalking off toward the entryway, probably knocking through some dancer or another along her way.

Someone wearing an expressionless ceramic mask with black eyes and lips has left the a pair of red luxurious couches.

Doll irritably takes off her mask, sets a half-handful of chocolates in it like it were a dinner plate, and forcefully hands the thing off to someone on her way out. Someone in a stupid mask.

Someone wearing Scaled Horned Serpent Maskif anything, moves cautiously just a little further into the hall. After a few testing movements of the mask, he looks around. Only the motions are jerky. Shift. Pause. Observe from a new angle. Repeat. Foot movements are a little cautious, but light enough given the armored body.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino hands drains her wine glass, and walks to the center of the room. Her lips curl upward and she smashes the glass against the ground. The sound of glass shattering so loud in the quiet room, filled with only the softest of lycene waltz.

She waits until all eyes have fallen onto her and she gestures to her side.

"It is time for the Gestures. Come forward if you are brave enough to let your body do the talking." The silence is broken with her purring voice. "The audience may speak but only >once< each person with a >single< guess."

    With that, some stupid Doll walks out, rolling her eyes.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask walks with Raven and smiles to Lion as she heads for the refreshments. She's moving a little stiff, glancing to the Tree mask and inclining her head graciously. Once she reaches the refreshments she'll select a glass of wine for herself. Taking a slow sip.

A messenger arrives, delivering a message to Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask before departing.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets looks over as the ceramiv-masked woman makes her way to the door and knocks through some people, the hands that were behind its back come out but the woman is gone before he can do anything he frowns and makes mental note and looks up as stuff starts to happen.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers has joined the line.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear's movements swing is partner out of the way of the passing Doll. There might be a mimicked growl at her with a raised hand in claw form before hands return to hold and the dancing continues. Whenever his partner seems like she might stumble or slip he draws her back in, watching for it such little mishaps.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom has joined the line.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino adds after a thoughtful moment, "The winner of Silent Gestures shall receive a custom rubicund weapon or a stygian mirrormask of their wishes."

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask has joined the line.

Someone wearing a mask representing a starred night jumps, startled, and there's a sharp inhale as one holds back a squeak. Shaking her head, she takes a step back, out of range of the peacock now that the dance ended and the shattering glass denotes the start of the game. She night shrugs, points at her mask - then toward the exit. She waves at the peacock, spinning around to skip out.

Denica puts a mask representing a starred night in A tall mask display case.

Denica has left the a steel-edged table inlaid with an ebony Raptor.

Someone wearing a black bear mask puts an expressionless ceramic mask with black eyes and lips in A tall mask display case.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers reaches out and ruffles the Silken soft hair on the Lion mask, nudging with a silver eyed wink behind before he moves toward calling of those brave enough to act, letting his other hand rise up and gestures with an animated confidence, flamboyant as he proceeds to assemble.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom turns towards the sound of crashing, smashing glass, covered eyes watching to see what the commotion is before the stygian cecaelia columbino mask speaks. Hearing the announcement of the game, she steps forward to the location indicated, to volunteer as one of the actors.

It is now Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers's turn to speak.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino turns then once people have geathered into the line. She grins wickedly, and turns toward the raven, to murmur in his ear.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask blinks at the squeak and quirks an eyebrow behind his mask. As the starry night one waves and gestures her leaving, he nods and waves back, before turning to join the contest.

Someone wearing a red porcelain mask painted with spider webbing hovers at the edge of the silent soiree in mute observation. Presumably he had been here since the opening movements but only now, as he watches the ungrateful chocolate sabateur petulantly flee into the night ,does he capture notice- drifting apart from a clutch of attendants as a shadow detaching from its host. Clad in slick leathers that twist the light, the quiet specter weaves through the crowd to take position holding up a decorated column. Though the slow turn of his head indicates his watchfulness, the blood-red circle of the mask peering out from beneath his dark hood bears no features to humanize his steady gaze.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino's eyes catch that man in sinister leather, and a blood red mask peeking from his hood. She's momentarily distracted from her duties as hostess to watch him move about the edges of the room. Clear appreciation in her green eyes. Though she doesn't go so far as to lick her lips. Yet.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets grins at the Raven looking to the bird giving a bit of a bow to him, he watched the Raven shaking his head abd stays off to the side for the moment.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers checked charm + performance at difficulty 15, rolling 16 higher.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers leans his feathery head in and cups a hand to his ear, playful in fashion as the Cecaelia Columbino masked lady whispers into his ear. Whatever is said makes him put one hand on his hip and the other taps at his beak in a thoughtful pose. Then with a finger extended, he walks in a circle and calls attention to the audience. He stops and makes his arms go wide to his sides and he stoops, to make himself look bigger than the lithe frame can be. Then his hands curl into where his ears would be with his elbows pointed out at the side of his head, flapping them so elbows come inward toward his face. For a final motion, he drops his beaked mask toward one lifted arm and hangs his head down, swaying his arm side to side, while the other is tucked at the side of his frame. He makes a dramatic pull of his head and the hanging arm is drawn up and then swung back down as he sways back and forth in a swaying motion. Once his performance is at an end, he spreads his arms out and cocks his head back and forth to look toward the audience, for answers.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask props her hand on her hip watching the game as she drinks her wine. She shakes her black curls down her back and draws a breath standing near the lion now. "Elephant?"

Someone wearing Scaled Horned Serpent Mask was observing those brave enough to become actors gather. Once the Stygian Cecaelia Columbino gives the Raven some marching orders. All his own movements stop to watch carefully. Silently he nods in agreement as the filigree'd one makes her guess.

Someone wearing Mask of A Smiling Ice Bear looks to Dolls departure, nearly tripping when she does. But upright she remains though jumps at the crashing glass. The ice bear looks to the snarling ice bear, shaking her head beneath the mask and in turn shaking the mask itself, as if ti doesn't want to participate.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino lifts a hand and points a finger toward the Elegant lady. A smile is given and she nods her head toward the Raven. She then steps to the side, and moves toward the tree woman, to murmur to her quietly.

It is now Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom's turn to speak.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers claps his hands and points to the Blue and Silver filigree, raising his clasped hands then in a championship motion of shaking his hands together side to side, over one set of shoulders then the next. He bows and moves off the front stage, making a little skip on his way to the drinks. He even rushes the Lion and wraps his arm around the figure, pointing dramatically to the drinks.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask shakes her head and smiles at the Raven. She snap points to him as he collects the Lion. Seems she can read the Raven pretty well.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets wraps a arm around the raven nodding his head as the raven points to the drinks, he moves for the drinks a smile on the lions lips. He brings a hand up to ruffle the Ravens head feathers.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom leans in to listen to the woman wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino. Giving a nod, she steps forward, green silk gloved hands clasped before her for a moment as she contemplates how to act out her clue. After a moment, the masked face turns back to the woman who gave the clue. There might have been a look given to her under the mask, but who can tell? Perhaps the other woman feels the heat of her hidden gaze.

The woman dressed like a tree then takes a deep breath, tilting her ceramic, bark-painted chin up in the air. She bends her knees a bit, booted feet taking slow, focused steps towards the person in the Horned Serpent mask. Arching her back slightly, the mask turns away from him, but slowly turns back, as if watching sneakily. She stays in this semi-crouched position, then lifts a gloved hand to her painted mouth, before running the back of it over the crown of branch and leaves, and down, once, twice... three times. Straightening up, she leans in and brushes her ceramic cheek against the man's armored shoulder, then turns and walks off just as calmly as she arrived.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask watches the Tree woman and has a guess, covering her mouth politely with her fingers.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear's taken his partner off the dance floor when the music ended and he tands next to her. He glances to her and nods at something and then he holds his arm out to her before he speaks up and says, "A cat!"

On her way past one masked man, the woman in the tree and bloom mask takes his drink from his hand without even pausing.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino grins in the direction of the Snarling Ice Bear! Her finger pointing toward him, and then she turns to move over to the peacock and lean forward and whisper into his ear as well. Whisper, whisper.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask claps lightly at the elephant charade, before looking to Tree and Bloom and waiting to see what she does. He raises a copper eyebrow in a bit of mild perplexity as he has no idea.

It is now Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask's turn to speak.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers is busy getting a drink, nudging the other masked man and giving him the lion's share of booze. Eyes are bright underneath the raven mask and all those feathers, beak tilted as he looks for a straw or something to make drinking with a mask on easier! He half way looks toward the games up front and blinks. The guess is met with a nod of his beak and then he goes to work out his drinking problem.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask looks to the Raven in her simple mask and drinks from her wine slowly with a wink his way.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom claps her hands to her sides and gives a bow to the man in the Snarling Ice Bear mask, having guessed the correct answer. She then walks back to the man she stole the drink from, and holds it out to him, offering it back. She can't drink it, after all.

Someone wearing Scaled Horned Serpent Mask blinking at the tree lady, he almost takes a step backwards. Then a silent chuff of amusement, and he even snaps teeth lightly together at the closeness of the brushing. Looking towards the Ice Bear as he guesses, he mimes smacking his forehead with his hand. Obviously he was going to guess something different, himself.

Someone wearing Mask of A Smiling Ice Bear moves off the dancefloor, her entire body language screaming relieved when they do so. A look to the food and the refreshments is given up when her partner yells out what the gesture is and when he wins, that ice bear head tilts back and forth and then to that offered drink. Hands clasp each other behind the back of her ice blue dress and rocks back and forth on her bear paw heels.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom turns to look at the man wearing the Scaled Horned Serpent Mask and lifts her silk gloved hand again to cover her painted lips, as if to suppress a completely silent giggle.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers slips his arm around the Blue and Silver masked woman again, giving her a quick little embrace and meaning to clink glasses with her. He turns to look toward the Peacock's performance, anticipating that it's next.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask snerks at the task he is given and shakes his at the idea. With a sigh, he comes to a stiff posture for a moment before reaching out in front of him and grabs some invisible object, lifting it up over his head then bringing it slowly down onto his masked features, adjusting it slightly. He then grabs another object and moves to slide it into his hip. From there he lifts one leg and bring it up and over an unseen object. Holding out his arm in front of him in a grasping fist, he begins prancing about the room, before coming across the black bear and the columbino woman. The man moves back and forth suddenly as though he is uneasy on his legs, then immediately raises his leg again off of the object. Pulling the item from his hop, he makes striking motions at the man with the black bear mask, before replacing the object at his hip and moves to columbino, sliding an arm around her and butting his mask against hers, dipping her backwards.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear's mask tips in acknowledgement of his guess and then he glances to his partner. He turns and while the game continues begins to make his way with her over towards the refreshment table again, taking up a couple of plates to begin putting food on.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers calls out, "A knight!"

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino lifts a hand and points toward Raven, giving a small nod of her head. And then she points back to the acting area. Apparently it is time for round two! Her hands folded behind her back.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers has joined the line.

Someone wearing Mask of A Smiling Ice Bear is bouncing on her heels when it seems they're leaving the game to others. She's swift on his heels, taking up a plate and trailing behind him. Fingers wriggle in excitement as she starts to lay this and that on her plate, carefully arranging everything to discreetly maximize what's being put on, but not have anything fall off. The smiling bear looks to the snarling bear then back down to her plate, careful, respectful. She's not going to take more than she's going to eat it would seem.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask has joined the line.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom has joined the line.

Someone wearing Elegant Blue and Silver Filigree Masquerade Mask hugs the Raven and clinks glasses. She chuckles at the Peacock's miming. She places a hand to her side lightly and glances towards the exit. She curtsies to the group before drifting out.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets gets his drink moving back over to stand with the raven and the Blue and Silver masked woman, he nods his head to the departing woman.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers dramatically pulls down a high fist at his face level toward his chest, a successful 'yes' like gesture. Though apparently while celebrating, he didn't realize he was being called up again, with the back and forth look in confusion and a finger point toward his chest like him saying 'me?'.. Out of the corner of his mask, he sees the departure of the Blue and Silver masked lady and waves to her. Then he's tromping back up front, after giving the lion his drink to hold.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom heads back to the line as well, standing this time beside the man wearing the Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask. She stands, well, as still as a tree, gloved hands once again clasped before her.

Someone wearing Mask of A Snarling Ice Bear's plate gets filled up with enough to eat. Which is still alot. And then a refreshment bottle is tucked in an arm and he motions to his partner towards the entry. As they begin to move towards the doors he will motion towards the Sygian Cacealia Columbino masked hostess. He will make an eating motion at his mask and then a lifting motion so she understands what is going on. Then a tilt of his head follows.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino also had put her hands onto the peacock's shoulders when he goes to dip her and pretend-kiss her. Not in an embracing way, but it in a push away manner. Diamondplate covered fingers digging into his shoulders in warning. Aaaaand then we carry on with things! She moves to the first person in line to murmur to them quietly.

It is now Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers's turn to speak.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers looks to the Cecaelia hostess and tilts his head at the whisper this time into his ear. He fans his hand in front of his face, looking around the room with a slight shake of his beaked head. His holds up his gloved fingers and makes his thumbs touch and his index fingers curl together on top, first knuckles touching. This he puts to his chest and makes a thump against his chest then extends it out and pulls it back in, thumping again. He then gestures toward Cecaelia since she's still close enough at hand and extends a hand outward as he glides around her, once, twice then stops in front of her. His hands spreading wide around her to fall on her waist and his beaked face tilts, expressively, then he slides down onto his knees before her, leans back on his calves and does the gesture with his fingers again, outward from his chest and thumping in her direction this time. He looks to the audience to see if he has to do more than that!

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask winces at the diamondplate and sighs. Damsels in distress just don't appreciate a good bear slaying like they used to. It makes him question why he got into knightly work to begin with then. Then the raven masked man is and chuckles. He has a guess but he os one of the actors.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom turns her masked face towards the Raven, watching his antics with the hostess. Her tree head tilts and says, simply, "Lover?"

Someone wearing a red porcelain mask painted with spider webbing crosses one leather-strapped arm over the other, his shoulders bouncing subtly with mute amusement as he watches the antics at the head of the party. The image does little to lend the expressionless figure any more humanity. If a deep-sea snake could laugh, would that make it's predator smile any less unsettling?

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino gives the raven a baleful glare when he uses her as a prop in his Gesture. A haughty lift of her chin is given when he kneels before her. Nonetheless, she points toward the tree. She turns then to the peacock to murmur to him to give him his newest gesture.

It is now Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask's turn to speak.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers points to the tree and bloom and claps his hands together. Then he rolls back onto his haunches and sits there on the floor for a moment, back on his gloved hands and folds his one leg over the other. He tilts his head up almost impishly and winks to the Cecaelia hostess, turning to watch Peacock now.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom bows her head to the Cecaelia, then to the Raven, turning then to watch what the Peacock may do.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask nods at Tree's guess before leaning to here the whisper. He blinks a few tomes and furrows his brow in thought. Deciding to continue using props, the peacocky one heads for Tree and takes her hands, if she lets him, lifting them from her sides so she can hold them there. Holding his hands up he wiggles his fingers and brings them down in front of her to the ground, repeating the action multiple times, before reaching Tree again and rocking her side to side. Shifting once more, he holds his arms over his head and runs around the room, before hiding under a table.

Someone wearing a red porcelain mask painted with spider webbing raises his voice in an idle drawl after the performer hides beneath a table, "Former Duke Hadrian Malvici?"

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers watches the antics of the peacock, wiggling his heeled boots as ankles cross, tilting his head and offering no words this time.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask snerks at spider webbed mask but shakes hi head at the guess.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom lets the Peacock Masked Man lift her hands. She leaves them where he lifts them, otherwise staying motionless, until he grasps her and rocks her from side to side. She seems to be watching his movements, though she stays still. Judging by her silence, she hasn't any guesses what he is doing.

Alas! No one seems to be able to guess that peacock mask's current gesture! So she gives a small shake of her head and turns toward the tree bloom this time. She smiles and moves over to murmur into her ear quietly.

It is now Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom's turn to speak.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers looks around to see if anyone has a guess, tilting his head, scratching a finger underneath his mask. "Rain?"

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask claps and points to Raven mask, before wagging his finger at cecaelia moving on. He got a correct guess!

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers pumps a fist again and this time he pushes up from the floor proper. He makes over toward those perfumes, since he hadn't the chance to see them and he might have noticed them from his prospective floor view. All the same, the Raven man is attracted to the colorful glass - a very bird like behavior! As he goes through the assortment and touches the glass of the Dreaded kiss. He accidently sprays it on himself.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers gets Dreaded Kiss, a sharp scent from A perfume bag.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers gets Copper's Breath, a woodsy scent from A perfume bag.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers finds the party favors and takes not just one but two! Oooooh those ravens, they are known to hoard things. Pretty things especially.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets moves over to gently poke the Raven in the side brushing the hand over his feathered head and tilting it to the side looking to him.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets gets Sultry Darkness, an earthy scent from A perfume bag.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers points at the perfume bag and indicates to the lion he should take a sample, or two. You know how ravens are! He nudges the lion and nods his head, bouncing the beak as he stuffs the samples in his pockets.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom tilts her head at the Raven's guess, curious, perhaps, if it is correct. The Cecaelia whispers to her then, and she watches the Peacock gesture the correctness of Raven's guess as she listens to her task. After hearing it, she does absolutely nothing for a moment. She holds up one gloved finger, as if asking for a moment, and heads to the refreshments table, taking up a glass of red wine before walking to a spot a bit clear from anyone standing near. She lowers herself to the ground, kneeling on the floor, and sets the glass of red wine before her. She seems unsure, looking around the room again and rising up, heading towards a candle and bringing it over as well, setting it down beside the wine.

The woman wearing the tree and bloom mask then gives a nod, indicating she is actually beginning now. On her knees on the floor, she spreads her gown around her, trying to take up as much room as she can, before hunching over, hanging her head down and slumping her shoulders low. She tries to look big, in other words. She sits still for a moment, hands on the floor, then starts to tremble and shake her body, as if some violent shudder was going through her, then suddenly, she picks up the wine glass and tosses the red liquid up in the air above her, kneeling straight now. The wine of course lands on her and all around. She reaches for the candle next, holding it over her head, waving at the smoke with her other hand, trying to make it smoke just a little more.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers gets Sorrow's Blossoms, a bittersweet scent from A perfume bag.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers gets Sultry Darkness, an earthy scent from A perfume bag.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers is apparently raiding the perfume bag. Pretty glass things. In return... he places something else on the table.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask just blinks at Tree's performance for a few seconds then guesses, "A dark ritual."

Someone wearing Scaled Horned Serpent Mask considers a moment. "Ah. Volcano."

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom lowers the candle down to the floor then points excitedly at the Scaled Horned Serpent Mask wearing man. She gathers up the glass and candle, taking it over to a table, and getting a towel to clean herself and the floor up a bit, before someone falls.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets shakes his head at the Raven poking him and pointing to one and then points to his chest and points to the Ravens chest, he tilts his head to Aiden watching him carefuly.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino smiles broadly toward Khanne at her performance. She looks very thoughtful for a moment and considers the three actors. Her fingers tapping against her lower lip briefly. She then turns to the audience and asks, "We shall have one last round, and I shall make it the hardest yet!" She moves to the raven to whisper to him quietly.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets gets Sorrow's Blossoms, a bittersweet scent from A perfume bag.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets picks up one of the vials looking it over and then sniffing it, he looks to the Raven and puts it under the beak to let him smell it.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers is busy trading things for others and getting a sniff of what the lion stuffs under his beak! He nods with some encouragement to the lion. Then he leaves a few pieces of paper behind on the table. Colorful pieces of paper. Really. His mark is upon them and might just well give him away, if he was caught placing them there. His pockets full of colorful glass perfume in trade, he startles as Cecaelia comes upon him and catches him... maybe in the act.



The Raven turns at the murmur into his ear and he cants his head. The measure of what he must act out has him think, and ponder. Then to get attention that he was still in the game and not ... just stuffing his pockets with veggies and perfume, he waves his hands and then pretends to sit, squatting in the air, and makes a gesture that in front of him was something square, the way he outlines it with his hands. He then plucks something invisible from before the square and starts to make writing gestures. Then he bows his head and gestures in prayer over it.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom watches the Raven then looks around the guests, seeing if anyone has anything to suggest. She shrugs, then says, "Vellichor devoted archivist?"

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino turns to fold her hands behind her back now, and watch Aiden's next act. Her head tilted to the side as she considers the prince. Her gaze scanning over those still gathered to see if they have any guesses. A smile is given toward the trea, her fingers lifted and held >this close<.

Someone wearing Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask nods to Tree's guess. "That would be my guess too."

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino taps her fingers together and moves toward the tree now. Leaning forward to murmur quietly toward her. Whispering softly in her ears.

Someone wearing A Fierce Falcon Mask enters from some where within the house, more than fashionably late. A glances is given around the room as the feminine figure makes her way towards the drinks.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers looks toward the hostess for the decision and... for whatever reason he rubs his hand underneath his mask - getting hot in there, and flashes mocha skin and most of his features, before he rights it back on his face. Sweat is most certainly dripping.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets looks to the Raven with a smile his arms cross over his chest while he watches him and waits, he looks to see if the Raven will come back over to him if he does he makes a motion on his stomach and then a motion like he eating and sighs and puts a hand to his forehead like he is going to faint all done with a smirk.

Someone wearing A Fierce Falcon Mask takes her glass of wine and begins to circulate the room. The sound of the music seems to dull any reason or need to speak. But she does seem to be observing the room. An empty hand to take, a glass that need filling perhaps. Clusters of people? Activities going on? Quick assessments.

Someone wearing a mask of tree and bloom stands utterly still after the Cecaelia whispers to her. She then takes a deep breath and looks around the room. She heads over to the man wearing a black bear mask and gestures to one of his weapons, as if asking to borrow it. If he lets her, she takes it to the center area again, if not, she pantomimes she has it in her hand. Again, she is motionless, thinking. She brandishes the weapon, or imaginary weapon, pointing it towards some imaginary foe, then takes on a stance, as if preparing to fight. She stands strong, then thrusts into the air a couple times, as if to attack her foe. Her other hand then lifts into the air in triumph, and she cleans the weapon upon her skirt, as if it were bloody, before holding it to her chest, point to the ground, hilt just under her chin, and bows her head in reverence.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers finishes up with his acting and notes that no one else makes a guess and then in turn, it moves on to the tree. He makes a woeful gesture, balling up his fists and rubbing them down his mask. Afterward, he turns to the lion and nods with some appreciation for the belly rub, in agreement of it.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino smiles toward the tree and leans back on her heels, waiting to see if there are any guesses as to what she might be pantomining just yet.

Kieran puts Feathered Peacock Headdress Mask in A tall mask display case.

Someone wearing a red porcelain mask painted with spider webbing tips his hooded gaze over to the woman in the Falcon mask, then bobs his head in a gesture of respect. More expression than he has shown all evening, barring the brief quip about the former master of the house. Though he pulls into some more of a decorous stature, the rogue observer still strikes an entirely careless figure.

Someone wearing A Fierce Falcon Mask lifts her glass of wine to the man in the Spider Webbed mask after catching the glance. Her gaze turns though to those performing the charades. An impressive pantomimed fight pulls an applause from the Falcon Masked woman.

Someone wearing a raven mask decorated with stylish plumes of iridescent feathers looks around and notes no one else is guessing so he offers, "Praise to Gloria?" He scrubs his chin, thoughtful.

Someone wearing an exquisite silken lion mask with red garnets waits for the Raven to see if he is right then he boops the Raven on the beak and then grabs his hand and looks like he may drag him out of the hall.

Someone wearing a stygian cecaelia columbino laughs a moment when the raven guesses. A little shake of her head is given and she says, "Alright! I proclaim you both winners. See me in the future for either a rubicund weapon, or a stygian mirrormask." A hand is waved, and she's apparently done! For she sashays her way over toward the man in the spider mask. Her fingers reaching out to trail over his shoulder as she moves to pass by him.

Looking towards the man in the Horned Serpent mask, she holds one out, as if asking his opinion.
