[Scalv-enger Hunt] And the winner is.......

120th Ashan, 720




"I can't believe it was so popular," Caz said to Flea and he grinned and nodded. His sister had always been unsure of this idea of hers, but it had obviously been popular. They'd just spent the last few hours checking everything, and tallying up all the numbers.

"So. We have everything?" Caz wanted to be sure, and Flea did a final check on her list. "Yeah, Caz, it's fine. We've checked it three times, you know." She breathed in and gathered up the papers. "Alright. So, you get ready to get people seated. I'll open the doors."

It was time for the awards ceremony. So, Caz went to the doors and opened them. "Come in! Come in!" She looked pleased to see that there were actually people there - even though the numbers were good, it was a secret fear of hers that people might not show up. She smiled broadly and gestured for people to come in - the Scholars' Nook was set out with linen-covered tables for people to sit and congregate around - of course there were books all over the place. There were small canapes and snacks and waiting staff brought around wine. All in all the effect was very nice.

Once everyone was in and settled, they would begin the awards ceremony.

90th Ashan, 720

Location: The Scholar's Nook


Ari'sora entered the Scholar's Nook with more than a little trepidation. She loved the place, she really did. It was one of her favorite places in the entire world. But the reason that she was here was somewhat nerve wracking. It was an awards ceremony of sorts, for having taken part in a scavenger hunt spanning different parts of the island. And since she was one of the people who had participated, she was one of the people who were being celebrated in this event. After a lifetime of wanting to escape being noticed, being one of the people who would be the center of attention was a very frightening thing indeed.

She hadn't gotten all dressed up per say...but she was wearing a simple dress that was very comfortable. It was easy to move in, and was designed to work around her wings so they weren't trapped by the material of the dress. A woman ushered them in, and she thanked the woman politely as she moved past her. There were plenty of tables to sit at, and there were a number of snacks and canapes being offered. Ari'sora chose a plate that had a sampling of mini fruit pies and cheeses. She set her plate down at one of the tables, then moved towards the shelves of books, unable to resist their siren call. She chose two books; one a collection of stories about magic that might have been more likely to appeal to a child than an adult, and a book about woodworking that seemed to have a lot of information about making wooden beads. Then she made her way back to her chosen table to enjoy a bit of reading time before everything got started.

Re: [Scalv-enger Hunt] And the winner is.......

While Ari’sora entered the Scholar‘s Nook with more than a little trepidation, Devin entered it with his head held high and a huge smile on his face because he was really looking forward to participating in the ceremony, being admired – and winning, of course.

He had of course gotten dressed up. He wore his finest suit, an exceedingly fashionable outfit of dark grey and violet that matched his unusual eye color perfectly, and ankle boots made of fine leather, and he had brushed his hair excessively and tied it back with a velvet ribbon. He also wore a hat with a most glorious bright violet feather on his head.

In short, he looked absolutely gorgeous, in his opinion at least, and he greeted the woman that opened the doors quite enthusiastically. “Hello, my dear! This is a great trial, isn’t it? I’m quite curious about what you all have planned”, he proclaimed before he walked inside, with a spring in his step because he was just in such a good mood.

Upon seeing all the snacks, his eyes lit up, and he immediately grabbed a plate and filled it with different treats before he sat down, at a table that was definitely not empty, because he craved company and attention and started munching quite happily before he mused,

“I wonder what the prizes will be. I’m hoping for a piece of jewelry or a magic item. Magic items would be great, don't you agree?” he asked whoever happened to be nearby and raised an eyebrow before he stuffed another snack into his mouth, still smiling. The ceremony was going to be quite a bit of fun, if those delicious little things was anything to go by!
Final Week/Notes
Challenge 1: Singing in Vain - Devin briefly thinks about his meeting with Balthazar.
Challenge 3: The Amnesiac, Part 2 - Devin has never tried to restore someone's memory before.
Challenge 7: The Amnesiac, Part 3 - Devin really enjoys working with the amnesiac Sev'ryn (even though he'll never admit it).

Devin already picked up the gem with one charge of a Favored ability that he got for competing in Week 4 in a thread.

Re: [Scalv-enger Hunt] And the winner is.......


90 Ashan 720
Late in Ashan Balthazar had received word that the little game he'd been playing with a few other citizens of Scalvoris would be coming to an end. He didn't get the chance to go out and buy nicer clothing so he just made sure he wore his best black outfit, the same he's worn to his initiation into the Elements, to the Scholar's Nook. He stopped outside to admire the tower for a moment- a small urge to make a portal to the top of it rising in him before he suppressed it. He wanted to do it every time that he'd come by the Nook but he didn't. He wasn't sure why he didn't but he didn't. Balthazar entered the Scholar's Nook quite similar to Ari'sora but also quite differently. He did not gravitate towards the books or towards the snacks immediately, instead he found a table in a corner and stat down.

He'd chosen the corner because it gave him a good view of everyone else in the Scholar's Nook. While it wasn't a perfect view given the layout of the room, he didn't have anyone sitting behind him. He would know if someone was looking at him. It was strange going to an event where he didn't feel compelled to compete for attention but also somewhat pleasant. He saw Ari'sora reading through a book over by her table, with another at the ready and then he saw the bard from Beacon who he'd exposed to an entire Tavern. The bard was doing well and Balthazar was glad for him, but when he saw Devin it made Balthazar think about bards. Bards sang. They recited poetry... Balthazar had recited poetry for... oh he needed a drink.

Balthazar gestured for a server to bring him wine. Then he did it again. Then once more.... and one more time. Then Balthazar rose and wobbled somewhat across the room towards the snacks where he assembled a small plate of goods that he took back to his corner table in the Scholar's Nook. This would be a fun celebration, one way or another.

Visible Mutations/ Marks

Mutations
Defiance: Skin always glows faintly and he is warm to the touch. His is also the center of a field of static electricity so people get shocked touching him on occasion.
Rupturing: Orange etheric cracks spider-web up his arms to his elbows. His eyes and the glowing cracks going down his cheeks glow dark blue.
Transmutation: He has a series of emerald, glowing cracks on his right pectoral.
Marks
Bellinos: His fingernails are always black. The color fades into his fingers.
Celarion: A dim glowing ring surrounds his left forearm.
Palenon: A silver lightning shaped mark about the size of a hand stretching up towards his torso.

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 on 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.

Re: [Scalv-enger Hunt] And the winner is.......

90 Ashan 720


Yeva worked the thick balm through her hair with one hand and grabbed her shoes with another. She was frantic, moving around the bedroom while trying to remember anything forgotten. On the nightstand were silver disk earrings which she grabbed and struggled to secure their backing and then she leaned forward to fuss with ankle clasps and stockings. Outside the door, she heard Azrael's voice call out, his talons drumming bored against the frame, "You're gonna be late."

Brown eyes looked up between peppermint curls, "I know, I'm putting my shoes on now!"

Taking that as her being dressed, Azrael turned the door handle but came up short when he laid eyes on the medic, "You're dressed up."

"Well, yes. It's an awards ceremony," Yeva breathed a sigh of relief when she fixed her shoe and then jumped to her feet. She grabbed her bag, slinging the strap across her chest, hesitating under the scrutinizing gaze of the Avriel, "It's not too much, is it?"

"No," he stepped closer, still staring, "I just don't see you in dresses often. Is that lip stain?"

She immediately covered her mouth, her voice hushed, "Um, just a little. Callie said I could pick one and.... I wanted to try it," she was getting embarrassed, glimpsing at herself in the wall mirror. Perhaps red was too bold?

Azrael looked away, "You look fine, Yeva." Moving across he floor, he opened his wings to lounge across the bed, "I'm almost sorry I didn't go with you. Are you sure you'll be alright?" After you-know-what?

Yeva smoothed her pink skirt, "I know human events aren't exactly your favorite place to be," she went to grab her cloak, draped across the foot of the bed and then returned to peck the Avriel on the cheek in goodbye. He blinked in surprise and she smiled, "Besides, Darius is taking me."

"Wait, who?"

"Darius Baer," she repeated for clarification, checking her bag for her coin purse should she need it, "You remember? I met him at the traveling casino?"

"I certainly do not!"

"I thought I told you?" Yeva paused, looking up as she tried to recall the memory. She was sure she mentioned it over breakfast, but Azrael was often a poor listener when caught in his own affairs. Avriel pride, and all that, "We played a few games, had a couple drinks. We're friends. He's really nice, you'll like him."

Azrael was trying with great difficulty to hide his jealousy, "Well, you should have told me again!"

"Boohoo," Yeva smirked, eyebrows raising as she watched him get so upset, "I've made lots other friends too. Alyssia, Balthazar, Abigail, Devin..." she grinned and reached for the door. Oh, the horror! Imagining she had a life outside of their own circle! Azrael's indignation struck her as funny.

"Where do you think you're going? We're not do-"

"Goodniiiiight!"

Yeva blew a kiss and shut the door behind her, laughing when she headed down the hallway. He'd be fuming for awhile, just as he always did.

Downstairs in the tavern, she spotted the sailor and nodded towards the door while waving happily towards the owner, whom she had grown familiar with while staying in her room, "You ready?" she asked the sailor with a grin, "I'm a bit nervous... Excited, though. It's been awhile since I've done anything like this..." Leaving the building and going down the street, she was thankful she was walking with a local. The last thing she needed was to get lost... again. She chatted a bit about the weather, and then gave a rough synopsis of a story she had read earlier that season, quieting when the Scholar's Nook came into view. Yeva nudged Darius in excitement as they entered cafe and held up an unusually bright and purple thimble they had found along the way, tucked in cracks of the cobblestone, "I wonder who will win?"

Arc 720, 90th of Ashan
"You clean up better than I expected, lad. Your mother would be proud."

Josef Baer was sitting in the front room of his house as his son awkwardly looked at his reflection in a large mirror.

"Are you sure?" Darius asked, uncertainty evident in his voice. "I'm not used to dressing up like this."

"Trust me, lad," he relied with a chuckle. "We Baer boys can get spruced up if we need to!"

Darius was dressed in finer clothes than he was accustomed to. His father, perhaps a little too eager to express his pride in his boy's achievements, had insisted on having his own finery mended at the local tailor. This had resulted in Darius wearing a maroon doublet made of velvet that sat over a white satin tunic. Black leggings and his newly buffed leather boots - along with a dark, fur-trimmed coat - completed the new wardrobe. Fortunately, the two men were of a similar build, so the clothing fit Darius well, but it was all a bit...fancy.

It felt strange to not be wearing his usual studded leather gambeson and hardy clothing that was designed to face the elements.

The one thing he was pleased about was that he'd managed to trim his beard and add a small amount of wax to it. It could get overgrown and wild when he was out at sea, and it felt good to get it under control.

"Now, make sure you're careful walking across town, lad," Josef insisted. "Don't want you getting my clothes dirty before you even arrive!"



Darius' father's words were still ringing in his ears as he cautiously stepped over a puddle outside the Knight's Rest Inn and Tavern, where Yeva had asked him to meet her.

When the young redhead appeared, the seafarer was caught somewhat off guard. He was used to seeing her in pants or - as when they had sparred together - in shorts and a shirt. But when she made her way down the stairs, cloak in hand, he saw lipstick...and a skirt...and legs!

Darius was hopeless around women, and he felt the heat of a blush forming under his beard, but he hoped that he could blame the warmth of the nearby fire if he should need to explain himself. As it was, he was able to compose himself just as she neared him, and he offered her an arm as he returned a grin to match her own.

"You look wonderful," he offered sincerely, "and yes, I'm nervous. I'm not used to this sort of thing at all."

He chuckled lightly, then, as they stepped out into the cool street air, and began making their way.

The walk was pleasant, interrupted briefly as Yeva insisted something had caught her eye. They spent a good few bits and shared several laughs extricating a purple thimble from between two stubborn cobblestones, and it was that which the redhead displayed to Darius as she nudged him and made her comment of anticipation.

"I've heard you've been doing quite well yourself," he chuckled, nudging her back. "If you've been half as good at this event as you were at finding that thimble, I think you should be feeling quietly confident!"

Darius looked up to see a waiter walking past with a tray of drinks, and he turned back to Yeva.

"Wine?"

"I'm so touched," Caz said, looking around, "and so delighted by the response. Thank you so much for everything, this was great fun. So! We have the leaderboard prizes - and some others, too." She grinned at Flea and then began.

For each one, they called out a name, and the individual got to come and be clapped and cheered.

Re: [Scalv-enger Hunt] And the winner is.......

Devin didn’t just munch on the snacks that had been so generously provided or get drunk. In fact, he didn’t get drunk at all because he wanted to make a good impression and be admired, and people were unlikely to admire a drunkard. No, he also watched the people that entered because he was really curious about who else had participated in the contest. When Balthazar entered the Scholar’s Nook, his eyes lit up, and he grinned and waved to the mage as if they were old friends. And what more, a moment later, Yeva entered the Scholar’s Nook. He’d quite enjoyed their time at Petyr’s, but of course that didn’t mean that he would let her or the hot and electric mage or the girl with wings and the blonde guy with the nice coat win!

He would win because he was totally awesome!

Unfortunately, the people responsible for the contest seemed to have other things in mind. When they announced the winner for the first prize, he could barely sit still because he was so excited and almost jumped up from his chair in order to walk over to them and get his prize right now because there was no time like the present. A moment later, they said her name, and he looked at them in confusion. Why had they said her name? Had they made a mistake? Maybe they thought that his name was Yeva even though that was a pretty strange name for a man to have! Maybe they had gotten the wrong information!

Yes, that had to be it. They would realize that they had made a mistake in just a moment, and then they would give him lots of stuff. So, he waited for the second prize to be announced – and the same thing happened. Prizes upon prizes were announced, but there was nothing for him! What kind of shit was that? That wasn’t supposed to happen!

He grabbed his drink in order to drown himself in alcohol because making a good impression didn’t matter anymore anyway when they announced who had come first, second and third place. The fact that he had apparently only placed third, made him frown, but only for a moment before he realized that there were quite a few people in the room who hadn’t won anything. They were such losers! He looked at them for a moment, feeling almost overly smug, before he abruptly stood, a huge smile on his face, and went to collect his stuff.

Devin had never suffered from stage fright, at least not for more than a moment. On the contrary, he absolutely loved being the center of attention – he was a vain priest of Delroth, after all - so, without further ado, he raised his voice.

“First of all”, he proclaimed in an almost overly cheerful tone, nearly brimming with excitement. “I want to thank Caz and Flea for arranging the contest. You did an amazing job. I haven’t enjoyed myself so much in a long time! The prizes are fantastic as well! I can’t wait to get my new mount! I already know what I want! I also want to thank my fellow contestants. Without you all, this wouldn’t have been quite as much fun!” he remarked which was actually true. He’d quite enjoyed getting to know them, but of course, that didn’t mean that he was happy for them now!

He still wished that he had come first place!

“With that being said, I already look forward to the next contest! If any of you want, you can join me at the Shrine of Delroth after the party here is over and celebrate a little more with me!” he announced before he bowed, grinned all over his face and returned to his chair where he proceeded to admire his new prizes. He would not only be able to get a new mount (he would get one with wings, of course), they had also given him money! As a priest of Delroth, the Immortal of Greed, he absolutely loved getting money!

Location: ---


The cheeses that Ari'sora had chosen were delicious. She had never even known that so many kinds of cheese existed before. Or that they could be made out of different kinds of milk. She had vaguely known that cheese was made from milk, of course, but that was cow's milk. Some of the cheeses that were available here had been made out of goat's milk, and sheep's milk as well. It made her wonder if cheese could be made out of any kind of milk, and if so, what would it taste like if it had been made out of say...horse's milk, or cat's milk...or any other kind of milk, really.

The fruit pies she had chosen were even better than the various cheeses were by far. They came in as many different kinds as the cheese did, and they satisfied her sweet tooth quite nicely. But the food, as good as it was, was of less interest to her than the book she was reading. She had chosen to start with the book about wood carving, and she was delighted to see that it was a book geared towards beginners. It had a chapter on the history of wood carving in Idalos, and it had chapters on different things that could be made out of wood. One of those things was beads, and that chapter offered tips on making different shaped beads as well as the general technique of how to make them. Better yet, it listed several books that went into more detail about the various things that could be made out of wood. Being in the habit of taking paper and pen with her any time she went to either the library, or Scholar's Nook, she began taking notes on the book that she was reading.

She was so engrossed in her reading that it took her completely by surprise when she heard her name being called. Ari'sora had almost forgotten why she had come to Scholar's Nook in the first place, and she certainly hadn't expected to win anything. So for a few trills, all she could do was sit and stare at the person who had spoken in wide eyed shock. They seemed to expect her to come up to the front of the room, though, so she quickly marked her place in the book she was reading and did just that. Caz and Flea seemed to expect her to say something, but unfortunately Ari'sora had no idea what she was supposed to say.

"Umm...I'm not really good at this. I'm a lot better at asking questions than I am at giving speeches..." she began nervously.

"But I'd like to thank Caz and Flea for creating this contest. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot while being involved with it. I would also like to thank them for hosting this event for us. So...umm...thank you." she said awkwardly as she blushed a deep shade of red.

Being at the center of attention was never a good thing in her experience, so it was with much relief that she scurried back to her seat at the end of her "speech."

Re: [Scalv-enger Hunt] And the winner is.......


90 Ashan 720
A small smile spread across the drunken mage's face at his placement. He didn't think he'd even get on the board but it seemed his job had really helped him out in that regard. From his corner he looked around for the name that had been called out with his- he'd tied with another competitor, Ari'sora. He didn't see her at first, remembering only that he'd seen her looking at books. In his befuddlement, Balthazar turned to the bookshelf sitting beside him as if he expected her to be there. Then he refocused on the crowd to try and find her. Then he saw her sitting at her table and raised his cup towards her- not that she noticed with her nose in the book. He remembered training on the beach with her most prominently and unconsciously prodded his abdomen with his finger. A little softer than ten trials ago... He'd work on that. Ari'sora was a kind... avriel from what Balthazar could tell so he was glad to be tied with her.

Then his gaze shifted to Devin who he also knew. Third. He didn't expect Devin to be happy with that but the man was proud if nothing else. Third place set you above everyone who didn't get called and that was something his Immortal (Delroth?) might have been proud of. Yet he didn't linger on Devin long before seeing Darius and Yeva. They'd arrived together and won together in quite a fitting turn of events. Balthazar gave them both a smile and a raise of his cup but he didn't approach them. Devin approached the stage and a small chant rose from the crowd that Balthazar tried to join.

"Speech! Speech!" His timing somewhat off in the chant and his body swaying a little bit more than it should have been. He listened with a wide, dumb grin on his face as Devin gave his speech. It was short and rather too the point. The Temple of Delroth. Balthazar let his mind wander to whether or not he'd be attending the after party for a few trills before Devin was leaving the stage and Ari'sora and himself were being called up.

Balthazar would let her go first, thinking it polite and because his table put him quite far back in the corner. While she moved up to the stage he rose and wobbled. "Oh sh-" Balthazar covered his mouth. Language! This is a nice event. He stood as straight as he could and tried to walk gracefully though the room towards the stage behind Ari'sora. His magic helped him a little. He knew exactly where the tables were when he bumped into them but he couldn't stop himself. He only bumped three which he thought was decent considering how much alcohol he'd consumed.

He found an odd assortment of prizes awaiting him but each one seemed curiously well suited to him. Some things could not conventionally be kept in the building and so in their place was a voucher with a description of the items. Balthazar read the vouchers while he moved to try and make sense of the letters before they floated away. There was one for a set of armor and some weapons made of some metals he didn't recognize, and one for a mount waiting in a nearby stable. It seemed someone in the Nook had snuck a peak at his Ziellmas list.

On the table waiting for him with a little card that had his name written in fancy print sat a few of the "smaller" prizes that they must have expected he would be able to carry back with him. He didn't understand how a ten book encyclopedia set about alchemy was considered easy to carry but there it was... at least it was in a box... with a handle. There was also a bag with a little bit of wealth for spending but Balthazar wondered if he might just keep it for himself... probably not. He had ideas of what to do with it. What impressed Balthazar the most was the beautifully stored alchemy toolkit that had been assembled but he couldn't stop to look it over because he heard a chant setting in. The crowd was chanting Speech! Speech! again to Ari'sora and the cruel reality of victory set in... he was next.

As Ari'sora finished, Balthazar stepped up. "Thank you Caz and Flea for organdising this-" Balthazar hiccuped. Oh Immortals not now. "It's been an honor to-" Hiccup "participate." Balthazar pressed his lips shut tightly and his whole body seemed to bounce a little. Another hiccup that refused to be quelled. "And thank you to everyone else-" Hiccup "for the competition and-" Hiccup "for helping me along the way. It's been great getting to know you." The way he said that last part made it sound like he was moving out of Scalvoris- which he wasn't but he was drunk and beginning to realize this was the end of his time with this particular set of people. Even in the next hunt it would be different. This exact moment wouldn't come again. No moment would ever be perfectly recreated. Balthazar's eyes got a little misty and he stepped away with one final hiccup.

He returned to his seat while the dynamic duo went up to claim their prizes and when the chant began, Balthazar joined in.They'd both done a lot for Scalvoris and Balthazar thought they deserved this; the cheers and the whistles, the small groups chanting their names as they went up to receive their rewards. Yeva had helped Balthazar a lot over the last season- through some perilous journeys even, and he was glad to see her win something that seemed to make her happy. Darius too. Balthazar thought back on the cases they'd worked together with fondness more often then he did with regret. Not in there performance just in the timing... if Balthazar had the knowledge and abilities he had now back then things would have been more simple for them. But the mage didn't think about that for long as someone with a tray of drinks moved by his table and stole his attention for the trill.
