0th of Cylus 0

A bright and joyful land on the surface, Rharne is a place that is full of mirth and mystery. With its capitol seated on the edge of Lake Lovalus, it serves as a busy trade city and tourist destination. Beyond the city lies the Stormlands, a sprawling golden countryside that is bursting with towns, farms and local wildlife.

Festival of the Founding: Freedom of Expression


The Founder's Festival:
Freedom of Expression
Image



On the second night of Founder's Festival, disparate groups of local Troubadours take the stage at Starling Gallery for a special late night performance, flaunting their acting skill in spite of the authorities. They do so without license to perform that night, but when questioned the owner of the Starling Gallery informs them that they paid well for the spot. This is in clear violation of a curfew imposed early in Ashan against theatrical performances. During their performances, variations of the histories of the Founding of Rharne are shown and told, some borderline heretical, going as far as to depict the death of Leviana in gruesome detail, while Ilaren is shown as a unsympathetic drunkard, and villains such as Faldrun and Syroa are shown as tragically heroic.

The Lightning Knights are forced to respond to this breaking of curfew, and assemble outside of the Starling Gallery in force. The memory of the All-Taverns Tournament is fresh on everyone's mind as people fear the worst out of this group of troubadours. Red and black banners and streamers are hung up and down the street of Starling Gallery and Opera House. Suspicion is high among the populace, but many people attend performance as a lark, despite the risk of apprehension by the Lightning Knights.

Please fill the following code if you'd like to participate in this event. I'll keep sign-ups open until I start the event, around three weeks to a month after Cycle change, to give myself room to breathe. Hoping we all have fun here regardless! :)

Tell me in a few short sentences what your PC's stance on the freedom of expression is: Freedom of expression? That's complicated. At it's core, She believes in freedom of expression - for everyone. But if what you're expressing is hate or vitriol, then expect people to judge you.

Sesser Mark

  • Transformer's Toolbox [Minor]: Azrael can make superficial changes to his appearance (hair, nails, skin, eye, and voice.)
  • Ever Alluring I: Azrael seems to endure harsh conditions better than others and everyone, despite sexual orientation, is just a bit curious what he would be like in bed.

Spirit Impact

  • Darksight: Azrael's perception of light and dark have been flipped, allowing him to see more clearly in an absence of light than in the day.
  • The Keys: Azrael is aware of his mortal born abilities (for Pact and Desire) due to an encounter and deal he made with the River's Daughter.
