In the Glass Quarter of Rharne is Augustin's Boutique. Formerly owned by Faith Augustin, this exclusive store provides clothing to the most discerning of Rharne's citizens. Upon walking in the ambience is one of care for the customer and the items made in the store itself are exquisite. It is now under the ownership of a skilled clothier, Bob Miller, who has kept on the old employees of Faith Augustin, and the exclusive distribution to the Order for cloaks, hoods, and scrap cloth for bandages.

The tinkling of the bell signals the newest customer and they step into a place of high-end fashion and luxury. Augustin's boutique is a place where the men and women of Rharne can come and purchase clothing off the rail whilst still being assured of the highest quality, they can bring their items for repair or resizing and, the most popular choices, here Rharne's wealthiest can have bespoke items made exclusively for them. It is known, also, that Augustin's boutique is able to produce clothing with wonderful and unusual effects on it. Some say this is through alchemy, while others believe it is the skill of the owner.

Whatever it is, the pieces are second to none.

Clothing is made and sold here for men, women and children. The shop floor is divided into the pre-made rails of clothes which line either side of the spacious interior, interspersed with mannequins displaying particular pieces and comfortable furnishings in order to allow those who come here maximum comfort. There are also private dressing rooms and consultation rooms for those wishing to try on an item or perhaps order some bespoke pieces. Every item of clothing imaginable is available here, from underwear and stockings to overcoats and cloaks. Each piece has the same attention to detail and thus, every piece which is purchased from Augustin's is an item of quality.

Nothing less will do.

Old Bespoke options under Faith
The exclusive items which Augustin’s will provide are based on Faith’s Needlework Capstones and are available on an individual basis. The base item will be priced as a “Made to Order” garment with the following prices added to the base price.
Colour Change Garments:
Items of clothing which shift and change in colour, depending on the light on them. This might seem to be constantly shifting and changing, or which might look like one colour in bright light, another at dusk and a third in flickering torchlight. This can be a single effect which effects the garment / item in exactly the same way throughout the whole piece (so a skirt that looks all blue, shifting into all green in a different light) or it might happen in parts (so a top which shimmers between a variety of different colours). This effect can be put on to whole garments, parts of a garment or made into trim.

Temperate Garments:
These garments maintain the wearer in a state of cool or warm. A summer dress made with this technique will be cooler and more comfortable in the heat of Saun than it should be, keeping the wearer comfortably cool as though they were in a spring breeze. That same dress could not then be warmer, it is made for one purpose, warm or cold. A thick knitted jumper would keep the wearer as warm as if they had many layers on, keeping out wind and cold.

Please note, these are examples of the kind of exclusive customisations we can provide. If you have other requirements, please pop in and Faith will be happy to discuss.

Mutations

  • Once Paradigm Is Removed: He glows faintly, his skin is warm and sometimes hot to the touch, and when he gets angry sparks literally fly off him. He's a the middle of a field of static electricity so every once in a while when you touch him, you get shocked. Fire leans towards Balthazar and droplets of water seem magnetically attracted to him. He has a series of cracks on his right pectoral that glow of soft emerald. His eyes and the cracks reaching down to his cheeks glow a dark blue. The etheric cracks spiderwebbing up his arms glow orange.

Scars

  • Oops, Oops, Ouch: Balthazar Black has twenty scars across his back from a lashing as well as scars on his hands and arms from jagged rocks in Faldrass. There are two scars on the sides of his abdomen from being stabbed and a slash across his back which blends in with the whip scars.
