20th Cylus, 721
The war is over, it's time for peace......

"I will 'ave you know," Vega said with a grin which showed that she knew she was talking rot, "that there's no such thing as a bad teacher, only a bad student. I'm sure that's what I heard, somewhere," she had not been a good teacher - still wasn't - but that was fine. A little gentle teasing between them was something she was comfortable with - and it would tell Arlo a lot about her feelings that Darius was a good bloke, too.

Did they need helping getting themselves settled? Vega glanced at Arlo and considered it. "We've got it down to a pretty fine art," she said. "But help is always welcome," She had her bag and her backpack, and Arlo had the same. "Do you have like a central area with a fire? We'll set up our own, but if you want help with cookin', well, he's the best chef in Idalos," she said and nodded. "An' no, I'm not biased. He's as good as that Cally's place. We went there." That had been quite an evening, she recalled. They'd agreed to buy a boat, seen a ghost and eaten good food. "I can't cook, but I'm happy to play a tune or two." Her fiddle, which hung on her side like a strange sword was something she was quite well known for and, even though Darius had been in Storm's Edge only a short time, it was a commonly stated fact there that Vega's fiddle playing made things easier.

"I reckon," she said, looking about, "If we set up over there? We can get the camp set up in a half-break," she had developed a real knack for setting up camps and, as was fairly usual with her, she was feeling competitive. "Want a race, Arlo Creede?" She felt comfortable asking that, of course, because Darius had offered to help and so they wouldn't be racing. "If you're happy to help, it'll be quicker still. My cousins have the other rowboat, which they'll bring ashore the majority of the stuff with over the next few trials. We've got everythin' we need for a temporary camp with us."

Looking between the two of them, Vega tried to gauge both men's reaction. "So, if we set up our camp, an' if you'll show us where, Darius, that'll be great. We'd normally get cookin' then, but if there's somewhere that we can help with that, he can work wonders an' I can peel veggies," it wasn't far from the truth. "What do you both think?"

With both men happy with it, Vega would be very happy to put up a windbreak where he showed them. She picked a spot, making sure that it was appropriate for them and got started. Once they were done here, Vega figured, she and Arlo could get themselves into Hopetoun properly and she could help him with some cooking. Also, she thought, she could play the fiddle. That always seemed to work to make people feel good and even though they'd just arrived, this was just the kind of thing that they both needed, Vega thought, to throw themselves into and get started on looking forward.

So, they got on with it.

Vega's skin has a reflective metallic sheen with a red glow. Her eyes still swirl biqaj colours, but one colour is always bright red which glows like fire. She has a bright red glow in her chest, situated directly under the mark of a heart (Daia mark) in the middle of a glowing silver dragon on her chest (Xiur). She's unnaturally warm to the touch

Comments: Poor Vega and Arlo. They wanted to spend some time at the resort on Faldrass after the nightmare time in Rharne, only to find out that the resort was destroyed during the volcanic eruption. I really felt for them. It makes for a very entertaining way to start their time in Hopetoun though!

I also enjoyed reading about their relationship, how they interact with each other and how they tease each other. I smiled more than once when reviewing this thread, I have to admit.

It makes sense that Lars thought that Vega and Arlo were here to see Baron Darius. He probably gets a lot of visitors. I was a bit amused when Arlo talked about having met the Baron once before. I like it when PCs aren’t intricately familiar with recent events, especially if they have just arrived.

I’d forgotten that Vega and Darius had met before until you mentioned it here (I think that Vega gave Darius a sword lesson?). I loved how surprised they were at seeing each other, and I like how friendly and welcoming Darius is. He gives me the impression of being a good leader!

Normally, I’d wish PCs good luck if they are somewhere new, but I don’t have to do that in this case, I think. I already know that Vega and Arlo will find a wonderful new home in Hopetoun!

Darius, I decided not to award you to “Socialisation: Any friend of hers is a friend of mine.” knowledge. I couldn’t find the part of the thread where your PC said or thought that.

Feel free to suggest a replacement knowledge!

Furthermore, I wasn’t entirely sure about the “Logistics: Knowing when you have room for more” knowledge, but it seems to at least be implied (Your last post gave me the impression that there is room for more as long as the people in question are willing to work hard.), so I’ve decided to award it.

With that being said, let me know if you have any questions, please, and enjoy your rewards!
