Category : Svago General Info

[11:19] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Tal, my Brother.”

[11:20] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “Greetings Brothers, and is a pleasure to met you, Blessed Adilokos” i bow my head to him

[11:20] Adilokos (ugurusu): Tal, Blessed Ones.

[11:20] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “I am Blessed Kardar, the second of the High Initiate of Two Scimitar.. your brother, from now on” smiling

[11:21] Adilokos (ugurusu): Blessed Tariq, and this one must be the student of whom you have written so glowingly. Kardar, is it? I am pleased to meet you at last.

[11:22] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): i touch my forehead, just in confirm of the Grand Inquisitor words, but i let Brother Tariq talk about it

[11:22] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Tal, Blessed Alosos.”

[11:23] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “Tal Blessed Alosos, is a pleasure see you again” i bow

[11:23] Alosos (alosos): Tal Brothers

[11:23] Adilokos (ugurusu): Blessed Alosos! Greetings, indeed, Brother.

[11:24] Alosos (alosos): Good to see you all

[11:24] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “I think if we arrive at the docks together and walk through the City, it will look impressive. Blessed Adilokos, as Inquisitor, will read the charge.”

[11:24] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): i nod as i place my hands on my back.. indeed my brother Tariq is totally in right

[11:25] Adilokos (ugurusu) takes the scroll from his belt and taps it “Indeed. It grieves me to no end that there are those who would dishonor our Caste. But the remedy is at hand, and must be applied. This, we shall do and rid ourselves of the stench of that infidel.”

[11:25] Alosos (alosos) nods “i have to agree it will look impressive”

[11:26] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “Unfaithful” I say shaking my head. My extreme ideas about the treatment that I would reserve for heretics of this caliber are well known to some, or are beginning to be.

[11:26] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): ((This formula of anathema is based on the one used in the medieval Church. Sorry for my lack of imagination, but we have nothing from the books, except the bolt of blue flame which struck the High Initiate of Ar, and that is above my pay grade. LOL ))

[11:27] Alosos (alosos) Nods “i have read the scrolls regarding the evidence has been found”

[11:28] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “I can lead the way with my staff — I know the way to the temple.”

[11:30] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): Are we ready, my Brothers?
[11:30] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “I am brothers”
[11:30] Alosos (alosos): I am ready
[11:31] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “If you would please follow me, Brothers.”

[11:36] Lib (liberace57): “Tal all ” he says on his way to the temple

[11:36] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Tal, Sir.”

[11:37] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): i look at the Free as i give a touch to my forehead “Tal Sir”

[11:38] Alosos (alosos): Tal Brother Rasputin

[11:38] Adilokos (ugurusu): Blessed Rasputin! Good to see you again

[11:38] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “Greetings, Blessed one, and Brother”

[11:38] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120): Tal Brothers

[11:38] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Welcome, my Brother. “

[11:39] Alosos (alosos): Glad you made it

[11:39] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120) nods. aye

[11:39] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “The temple is at the top of the hill and has a fine view of the City.”

[11:40] Adilokos (ugurusu): Thes stairs are new! I am very pleased at the improvement

[11:40] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Tal, my Brother Johyn. Will you join us today in the ceremony?”

[11:41] Dσмiησ (domino.morales) smiles seeing her grandson . ” Tal mio caro .. ” she places her hand on his arm

[11:41] Lib (liberace57): he says quietly to Ari “I released William this morning, his vitals were fine and with Nikki and Jess there i figured he would be ok”

[11:41] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): “Tal Brothers Rasputin and Alosos. And also Adiokos”

[11:41] Arianna Beatrice Voss (abbielynn) seeing so many men in white i move to hide behind Ariella and Lib without making a sound.

[11:41] Alosos (alosos): Tal Brother

[11:42] Jasen Bernard (nocturneowl) steps to the temple and removes his weapons placing them on the rack outside so to moves next to his Granny holding her hand smiling, so looks the Blessed Ones and speaks: “Tal Blessed Ones” looks to Tariq and offers a smile while his fingers runs on the ring he always keep on, so looks to his granny kissing her forehead and speaks: “Tal Granny, Tal All”

[11:42] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): “Greetings Brother” I said to Johyn “I am the last One made, as second of Blessed Tariq in Two Scimitar, i am the Initiate Kardar” i bow to him

[11:42] Mazikeen (kirsme): Mazi hides as far back as possible without falling off the cliff, then reaches out to clutch Tempest’s arm.

[11:42] Ariella Steele (jessica13074): nodding to Lib “that is fine, i just wanted him monitored overnight, i am sure he will be just fine” nodding to Bea looking to the men in white “tal Blessed ones”

[11:43] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): i raise two fingers as i look around “Greetings you all, good folk of Svago” i said with respect

[11:43] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120) looks over and nods to the small group.

[11:43] Alosos (alosos) nods while looking to his right “Tal all”

[11:43] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316) smiles to his Mentor and says, “Good day Tariq and Kardar”

[11:43] Tali (talista) was totally not comfortable right now but if it had anything to do with that pervert Mal being whatever the heck it was being done, she was there On feeling Mazis hand she put her own on there and shivered a little before whispering to her “i feel like i am about to be struck down”

[11:44] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente) sets aside his processional staff.

[11:44] Arianna Beatrice Voss (abbielynn) hearing everyone else greet them i speak up i say ‘Tal blessed ones” then remain quiet so i can observe what they will do.

[11:44] Dσмiησ (domino.morales) inclines her head to the arriving Initiates a smile on her face well hidden as she eyes a familiar face .. but keeps her greeting general ..” Tal Blessed Ones “

[11:45] Mazikeen (kirsme): Mazi scrunched up her nose. She hadn’t really ever spoken to the Initiate and didn’t know what was going on. But she’d been distracted by the sheer amount of white-robed Masters and well.. she was on a hunt for a Master. Just.. these weren’t the right one. So.. she was nosy and stayed with Tali, even at the words, she shuddered and nodded, whispering to her. “Don’t go near them.. we can’t even accidentally touch them.”

[11:45] Lib (liberace57): “Tal Blessed ones”

[11:46] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Good people of Svago, we are glad that you have joined us today for this ceremony removing the false initiate Mal from the Caste, and denying him the Immortality promised to faithful Initiates.”

[11:46] Alosos (alosos): Tal Sir

[11:47] Adilokos (ugurusu): “For all of you good citizens of this fair isle and city of Svago. Those of you who have been harmed by the heretic, blasphemer and outcast of the white, the one known as Mal, we of the Caste of Initiates, represented by many cities, offer you audience to this proceeding. We intend to disbar, defrock and condemn the creature, abolishing his works and setting right that which he has damaged by his execrable actions here in Svago and wherever else he may have chosen to wreak his damages.”

[11:47] Kiko (paulina.jardberg): “Greetings Masters and Mistresses and Kajirae…” said Kiko loud and clear and moved to the spot where all the slaves were.

[11:47] Baldr (adilah.ghost) remains behind now seeing all the Initiate and steps next to the girls keeps his guards mode on as looks the Administrator also coming closer, looks to all and remains silent aftrer spoke a: “Tal Blessed One, Tal Masters and Mistresses”

[11:48] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) folds her hands before her as she comes to stand near the group of Initiates, offering a respectful bow of her head to them, and then to others as they began to file in, waiting quietly for things to begin.

[11:48] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): i lowering my gaze… an heretic between us is something we need really to eradicate. Indeed i personally hope than the Holy flames take him really fast .. probably also erasing his name from Gor’s face. I just rise my hand for the last arrived, but i keep me in silence.

[11:48] rolm (toporto.babenco) walks along with Kiko and does exactly the same thing as he is the first time he’s at a ceremony here “greetings, Masters, Mistress and Kajirae” he goes to where the slaves

[11:48] William Carver: as painful as it may of been William under his own power walked up the steps to the temple and then over to a chair set near the statue of his friend Terek he would all sit down as carefull as he could before he spoke ” Tal good Citizens of Svago, welcomed Blessed Initiates to faithful Svago “

[11:49] Kiko (paulina.jardberg): had no clue where to be or where to stand so she just stayed in the back and watched what was about to happen.

[11:49] Ariella Steele (jessica13074): standing quietly nodding to those arrived but just waiting and watching the ceremony.

[11:49] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “As you can see, the banner which goes before us is that of the Great Court of the Sardar, the Court which renders judgment on Initiates who have failed in their duties to the Caste. It is not the banner of one City alone, but of the whole Caste, for this is a matter which touches the honor of every member of our Caste, of every City.”

[11:50] Lea Carver (leather.firethorn) watched her father, a bit apprehensively, climb p the stairs. She wrinkled her nose at his stubbornness, though secretly, she was proud of his determination. “Tal, Free.”

[11:50] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): “Tal to all who have arrived to witness the defrocking of the False Initiate.”

[11:51] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente) lights his candle in the flame at the entrance of the temple.

[11:52] Adilokos (ugurusu): I stand, with my back to the Temple entrance, just as we have stood, down through the centuries, when pronouncing anathema upon a former Initiate, to guard the entry, that none impure and blasphemous might gain entry. Initiates stand in a ring before me, with the banner at the centre to form the Golden Circle of Protection, to which we refer in times of necessity and during the services. “Come Brothers and form the circle. All onlookers standing near the circle are within our protection.”

[11:53] Alosos (alosos) steps forward with other Brothers to form a circle

[11:54] Mazikeen (kirsme): Mazi leans over, pats Kiko on the arm gently. She had decided it was best to hide behind the Thrall in this instance.

[11:54] rolm (toporto.babenco): just follows Kiko and kneels aside her, contemplating the scene, everything looked so sophisticated, the Panther camp that once owned him seemed so precarious in comparison.

[11:54] Adilokos (ugurusu): “Brothers of our Caste. Compose your minds to this task. Not of worship, nor of praise, but of solemn defense. We shall make Outcast. We shall make Anathema of the heretic. His crimes will be enumerated and she shall be placed forever outside our Circle. Are we agreed, Brothers?”

[11:54] Kiko (paulina.jardberg) chuckled softly as she clearly could see that a few of the slaves didn’t know what to do , including herself.

[11:55] Lib (liberace57): he watches the ceremony in fascination

[11:55] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Be it so, High Inquisitor.”

[11:55] Alosos (alosos): “so be it” in agreeance with the High Inquisitor.

[11:55] Adilokos (ugurusu) listens for others

[11:55] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316) says, “Aye I am of the same mind High Inquisitor”

[11:56] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki listens and watches as the Initiates speak of the former Initiate of Svago, she had never seen this before and listened to each word that was said.

[11:56] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): form the circle, between my brothers as i listen all ritual in progress. My candle burn with the other also.”Aye, Brother” I say nodding placidly .. really determined to be part of this marginalization from immortality too. And from the Gorean path. Disregarding one’s caste codes only deserves indignation and impalement. That’s for sure.

[11:56] Lea Carver (leather.firethorn) looked on, finding this much more interesting than the normal temple ceremonies…

[11:57] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente) composes his mind to the solemn occasion and waits for the Inquisitor to begin at the Ahn.

[11:57] Adilokos (ugurusu): “As is the custom among us, is there one Initiate, any of us, who feels that the accused, one Mal, formerly of Svago and other parts, be innocent? If so, speak now in his defense.”

[11:58] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Not I It was my agents who uncovered his crimes in Svago.”

[11:59] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120): “Not the Temple of Olni for his deeds have reached our shores.”

[11:59] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): my tight lips make me understand my thoughts about the heretic Mal. What we are doing is all too light, almost a caress, compared to what should be done .. but the unwary run away in front of the Priest Kings .. and I can understand it .. they will escape a little while they burn screaming. “No, not me Brothers”

[12:00] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): “Not for the Temple of Svago as his deeds among the people here are known”

[12:00] Alosos (alosos):” Not me as i am in agreeance with Brother of Olni”

[12:00] Adilokos (ugurusu): “The Rite of Last Chance is accomplished. The Mercy of the Caste of Initiates is as boundless as the Mercy of Priest-Kings. The Wrath of the Caste of Initiates is as boundless and swift as the Wrath of Priest-Kings. Let it be so.”

[12:01] Adilokos (ugurusu): The Initiates gather in a circle and turn toward the highest ranking official of the caste present, Blessed Adilokos, Grand Inquisitor of the Caste.

[12:01] Adilokos (ugurusu): “My brothers, we gather today to render judgment on the false Initiate known as Mal, to remove him from the Caste of Initiates, and to deny him the immortality given to those members of our Caste who live pure lives, obedient to the Codes under whose authority we are set by Priest-Kings and our superiors.”

[12:02] Adilokos (ugurusu): “Mal, the false Initiate has knowingly and willfully violated the oath he swore to uphold at his entry into the Caste. He has offended against the Codes, and is unworthy any longer to be considered a member in good standing of the Caste of Initiates. Among those violations known to us by sure and certain evidence of eyewitnesses are eating meat, and having carnal relations with females. We therefore find him in violation of his ritual purity and befouled by forbidden behavior before Priest-Kings and his Caste-Brothers.”

[12:03] Adilokos (ugurusu): “He is also reported to have neglected to carry out the proper duties of our Caste, by refusing to hold a memorial for the son of one of the most noble families of the Island and city of Svago, after that Free Man met his death in an accident and his ashes were returned to the island. Thus this man, Mal has offended in both things done and things left undone which he was obligated by his Professed Oath to do.”

[12:03] Adilokos (ugurusu): “Moreover, Mal has also brought disgrace and shame upon the Caste by wanton and willful breaking of the civil Law of the Island of Svago, by the furring of the property of Warrior Mjarko of Svago, and the theft of this Free Man’s lawfully owned kajira, fleeing with her from the island. Following this, we are informed, Mal lost the kajira in a game of chance and abandoned her, rather than return her to her rightful master after carnally using her.”

[12:04] Dσмiησ (domino.morales) nods to the spoken words and holds the hand of her grandson

[12:04] George (george1480) arrives quietly as the event has already started

[12:04] Jasen Bernard (nocturneowl) stiffens his jaws remembering and nodding as looks with respect the Blessed One.

[12:04] Adilokos (ugurusu)’s voice deepens and becomes firmer as he reads on
[12:05] Adilokos (ugurusu): “THEREFOR, in the name of, and by the authority given me by, the Holy Priest-Kings — as Grand Inquisitor and highest judge of the Caste of Initiates, — I, Blessed Adilokos of the Great Temple of the Sardars, hereby utterly CAST HIM OUT of the Caste of Initiates and remove him from membership in our blessed society!”

[12:05] Adilokos (ugurusu): “We hereby remove the false Initiate known as Mal from all fellowship with either Men or Gods. We separate him utterly from the society of all believers and servants of the holy Priest-Kings, and from all privileges of membership in the White Caste. We declare him excommunicate and anathema. His words are not heard by the Holy Ones, or by men. No one shall shelter him, give him food, or grant him any communication of any kind. Should he pretend to celebrate any rituals of the Caste, they are not valid to be recognized by Priest-Kings, or by Men. Entry into any temple or shrine is forbidden to him. All Caste doors are shut to him. He shall not touch book nor scroll nor altar nor candle nor any furnishment belonging to the Caste. Any such contact shall be regarded as blasphemy and theft.”

[12:05] Lib (liberace57): he thinks Mal would fur a snake if he could get someone to hold its head.

[12:06] Adilokos (ugurusu) shouts: “Likewise, after his death, we condemn him to forfeit that immortality granted alone to Initiates by Priest-Kings. Let him be sent to the Cities of Dust, where he shall wander forever as a mindless and insubstantial shade. Let his name be blotted out before the Holy Ones and forgotten by Men. He shall no longer exist. He is banished from the Light of Priest-Kings into Darkness!”
[12:07] Adilokos (ugurusu) shouts: “So be it! Fiat! Fiat! Fiat!”

[12:07] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Fiat! Fiat! Fiat!”

[12:07] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): I repeat, full of fervor “Fiat! Fiat! Fiat!” and extinguish my candle.

[12:07] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120): SO BE IT FIAT! FIAT! FIAT! FIAT!

[12:07] Adilokos (ugurusu): * The initiates each repeat: “Fiat! Fiat! Fiat!” and extinguish their candles. *

[12:08] Alosos (alosos): “Fiat! Fiat! Fiat!” in a full voice and extinguishes the candle.

[12:08] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): “Fiat!Fiat!Fiat!”

[12:08] rolm (toporto.babenco) watches the ritual trying to figure out what happened as it seemed really serious.

[12:08] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente) throws his candle down and it sputters and goes out in the damp grass.

[12:09] Adilokos (ugurusu) hears the roar of thunder from the cloudless sky and smiles. They have been Heard

[12:09] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120) steps on the candle insuring its destruction and its flame no longer able to light

[12:10] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): look at the sky roaring as i touch my forehead.. a gesture to ward off the apostate’s name, far from my figure and that of my brothers.

[12:10] rolm (toporto.babenco) hears the thunders and feels goose bumps.

[12:10] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki gets a chill and rubs her arms as the Initiates cast Mal out. She looks up when the thunder roars.

[12:10] Adilokos (ugurusu): Good people of Svago, the danger has been lifted from your beautiful city. The temple has been cleansed and the blessings of the Almighty Priest-Kings have once again been restored to you.

[12:10] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120): Hear Hear!

[12:10] Alosos (alosos): Hear Hear!

[12:11] rolm (toporto.babenco) thinks to himself “well now that’s really serious business” as he hears the thunders.

[12:11] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): The final words, meaning “It is done” in ancient Gorean seals the anathema, as each Initiate joins in pronouncing the curse.

[12:12] Adilokos (ugurusu): And now, if the Administrator of this city will step forth, the caste of Initiates will give you gold in order to recompense you for the damages done by one who claimed our Authority.

[12:12] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120):” May he find no mercy, no peace”

[12:12] Alosos (alosos):” Indeed Brother Indeed.”

[12:13] Adilokos (ugurusu):sees that the Administrator is seated and so he goes to him, instead.

[12:13] Caius Carver (bomberblue) had shot a look up hearing the thunder, when they called William he looked over knowing his condition, but also his stubborn nature.

[12:13] William Carver: William would then, hearing the words would stand as best he could and clenching his jaw he would step forward.

[12:13] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): “May such never set foot on the ground of this Blessed Island and it be forever protected.”

[12:14] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): “Ta Sardar Gor” she calls out as the initiates conclude the ceremony and tries to help William out of his seat at the Initiate approaches.

[12:14] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120) turns to face the crowd.

[12:14] Adilokos (ugurusu) holds out a heavy box to the administrator “This contains gold from our Caste to your City. may it help to heal the wounds inflicted..” He smiles and makes the sign of the Circle and adds quietly “And may your own wounds heal swiftly, Sir.”

[12:14] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente) nods. “The loss by theft is repaid by the Caste. The other crimes will be repaid upon Mal by Priest-Kings.”

[12:15] Dσмiησ (domino.morales): ” Ta Sadar Gor ” she speaks from the bottom of her heart

[12:15] Jasen Bernard (nocturneowl) calls out: “Ta Sardar Gor!” speaks proud nodding as looks to the Blessed Ones

[12:15] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120): TAL SARDAR GOR!!

[12:15] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Ta Sardar Gor!”

[12:16] Johanna-Nikki Bernard (anaris.draconia) ” Tal Sardar Gor”

[12:16] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): I also proceed with a small sign of the circle, addressed to all citizens, honoring the delivery of the repairing gold .. in the hope that all this will never happen again. “Ta Sardar Gor!”

[12:16] Alosos (alosos): “Ta Sardar Gor , May this island be protected.”

[12:16] Jonah Bernard (tobiasscribe69) watched the proceedings, the ceremony was all he had hoped it would be, and his voice would chime out. “Ta Sardar Gor!” Though he would quiet down to continue to watch the interaction between William and the Initiate.

[12:16] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): Tar sardar Gor”

[12:16] George (george1480): “Ta Sardar Gor!” he repeats

[12:16] Juvαnα Pyrnεα Cαrvεr (melisandramelodi) looks on with great seriousness, she says, “Ta Sardar Gor!”

[12:16] William Carver: “Caius ” He would call for his son as he felt himself waiver a moment he would not reach for the box it was all he could do to stand there and he drew in some air and forced back the pain as he spoke ” The faithful of Svago are grateful for the mercy of this Council of Initiates in their efforts to bring peace and prosperity to the Isle of Svago, our faith has never wavered “

[12:16] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga): “Ta Sardar God.” She replies quietly with the rest.

[12:17] Lib (liberace57): “Ta Sadar Gor” he says a bit louder than he intended.

[12:17] Adilokos (ugurusu) smiles and steps back, withdrawing so that the man could regain his seat without offense.

[12:17] Baldr (adilah.ghost) hears his Master’s name and looks to him while looks the Initiate.

[12:18] Caius Carver (bomberblue) arched a brow hearing his Father and he moved through the Crowd and moved to his side. Inclining his head to the Initiates.

[12:18] Adilokos (ugurusu) shouts: “The ceremony is concluded. Priest-Kings bless you all. You may return to your lives, blessed and protected once again. Ta Sardar Gor! Hail Svago!”

[12:19] Baldr (adilah.ghost) follows his Master but remains far enough but his guards mode was on as well, keeping his eyes time in time to the stairs

[12:19] Juvαnα Pyrnεα Cαrvεr (melisandramelodi): Hail Svago!

[12:19] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120):” Blessing upon all of Svago this day.”

[12:19] Blessed Johyn (timothypaul316): “Hail Svago!”

[12:19] William Carver: He would then indicate the box of gold ” Son, if you can see to that ” William would not admit he did not have the strength but such was the case he would then move back to the chair and would call out before he sat ” TA SARDAR GOR!”

[12:19] Adilokos (ugurusu): “And now, my Caste Brothers, those who desire to remain, we can all go to the Inn and have tea and refreshment. On my coin!”

[12:20] Lea Carver (leather.firethorn): “Hail Svago,” she echoed.

[12:20] Alosos (alosos): “Blessings to you all Svago.”

[12:20] Kardar Alhazred (tavarkardar): ” Hail Svago! Blessing to each of you, good citizens!” i repeat

[12:20] Blessed Rasputin (rasputin120): “aye tea that is given free is always welcome.” He grins.

[12:20] Tariq ibn Joshao (kitten.serpente): “Blessing of Priest-King be upon Svago and all her people.”

Two slaves, an urt & a bad idea

Category : Svago General Info

[01:26] Vash (Sebedai Charron) briefly glanced at Four having her dilemma with Onion, which he would sort out in a moment, for now he took the tea from his slaves finger, and placed it on his palm, turning it seven times as he looked back at Roca “Of course, don’t let me hold you up. I am going to have a quiet morning, and do some Urt investigations. I hope you rest well, and have a profitable expedition.” He then devoted some of his attention to the wayward Four “Kitai, go slap Onion to get her attention, and demand she fetch me poison, then tell four that if she doesn’t get me cheese, I am going to stand up, and go over there to tell her myself.” He then gave his little curved slave a brief pet on her backside.

[01:26] Roca Mogambo (Sathvik Vacano) lifts his head, closes his eyes and slowly bites the berry a few times and swallows it. Then opens his eyes and turns to Larissa and “Girl, lets go and take rest. There is a big agenda tomorrow”
[01:27] Roca Mogambo (Sathvik Vacano): heel Larissa
[01:27] Roca Mogambo (Sathvik Vacano): “you take care sir, I am sure your slave girl takes good care of you. I shall see you around, or may be during my next trip back to home. bye for now”

[01:28] Larissa (shjana Resident): “Yes Master” she rises ready to leave, she turns to the White haired man, “I wish you well Master” and to the slave” Serve well, kajira”

[01:29] Clarissa Faith if it was appropriate for her to facepalm, she would have. Instead she returned to being the best slave she could be and reminding herself that the poor behaviour of others was not her concern, or her place to correct. Smiling coyly op at her Master she let her fingers play softly on his thigh, stroking them back and forth. Her desire to purr was repressed as this was not the place for it. Of course her attention was drawn momentarily to the Free woman’s tantrum, but that was the whole point of it. “Um…yes my Master” She was wondering why the woman hadn’t just called four over to serve, but her mind was now blank. She didn’t want to slap onion…but here goes. Standing up defiantly, as defiantly as someone who’s tiny and wearing pink can be, and marched over to Onion, giving her one almightly slap without warning. Then pointing accusingly, “Get some poison NOW!” Before looking to four and smiling sweetly, touching her arm in a friendly manner, “Please my friend, can you get some cheese for my
[01:29] Clarissa Faith: Master?”

[01:32] Four (silk Mendle) turned her back, purposefully to the table, and stared at the Woman who had moved to make herself some food. “Onion”, Four muttered to Onion, “stop it. You’re gonna get us in trouble”. And as Four watched the Woman, she started to grow impatient. She stared at Onion, waving a hand in front of the Inn Slave’s face. But Four, after a while, decided Onion had the best plan – stand there – look blank – stare. So Four stood there, staring forward, with a blank and expressionless stare. And when Kitai came and gave dear Onion a good whack, Four blinked. “Kitai!”, Four gasped, covering her mouth in horror. But she were quickly silenced and pulled a face. “What?”, Four glanced over at Vash, then looked back at Kitai. “Why?”, Four looked mighty confused. Eventually, though, she let out a sigh, “okay then”. And with a look of protest given to both Onion and Kitai, she turned and shuffled around the counter to wash her hands and pat them dry.

[01:34] SorshaMoon Resident grabbed a mug wiping it down and filled it with ale and walked out the inn while mumbling “Fucking men and their lazy sluts…all either is good for is furring each other…and nothing else”

[01:37] Clarissa Faith immediately felt guilty for slapping onion, she hadn’t even had a conversation with her, ever. Not that Onion was the chatty type, she leaned in and spoke softly so that the other couldn’t hear, “I’m so sorry, I….” she flushed and her hands flailed a little at her side as she fought for a good reason or excuse, she simply settled on the truth, “My Master told me to…and…well…his word is law” She looked up at Onion as she stoically took the pain that Kitai had wrought on her. Sheepishly the curvaceous slave turned to go back to her Master. Catching sight of the HUGE woman and her eyes became like moons, so round, she stared, she couldn’t help it. Kitai could curl up and sleep in one of the woman’s breasts alone. “By the moons….” it was under her breath and just before she caught herself and almost ran to Vash’s side before she got in trouble, giving four a chipper, “thank you!”

[01:39] Vash (Sebedai Charron) watched in something akin to amusement as the girls hurried to obey, his eyebrow rose at the free womans outburst. It hadn’t phased him in the least, in point of fact he seemed a lot more happier and relaxed to have the woman out of his hair. He suppressed a yawn, and sipped some more of his tea, wincing ever so slightly at the slap Kitai gave onion. He let out a long low rumble and waited for the girl to fetch him some poison. Though, in retrospect, perhaps some binding fibre could do the trick equally as well. He put his tea cup down, and took out a cord of the sinews, and began to work it into a loop like a small strangle trap, or lasso. He glanced up as kitai returned to his side, and he glanced to make sure onion was doing as she was told, and that four wasn’t stinting on his order. He placed his hand on his sluts ass, and dragged her a little close so he might bite her bottom lip, and drink from her lips a long deep kiss.

[01:43] Clarissa Faith her hand stung, she had really put a lot of force behind that slap. Her irritation at the lewd, slimy slave had made her so angry, she’d taken it out on poor Onion. Shaking it from side to side she tried to get the sting out. Everything forgotten in an instant as her Master drew her closer and she sighed happily as he sank his teeth into her lip. She didn’t begin to writhe or moan, she controlled herself. Simply closing her eyes and allowing him to drink his fill from her plump lips. Everything was just so perfect in that moment, she laid her hands on his thighs gently. “Thank you my Master…” she cooed in gratitude for his display of tenderness

[01:43] Four (silk Mendle) regretted coming to visit Onion. She always ended up serving – and Four hated serving. Four bent down to one of the cupboards and dug around. And all that could be heard, coming from the kitchen was the banging and clattering of crockery and pans, while Four searched for a plate. “Got it”, Four stood up, waving a plate at Onion. And with a flick of a rep-cloth, it was unfolded, and she gave the plate a quick wipe, front and back. Once the plate and rep cloth were set to the bench, Four dumped a little round slab of cheese on to the plate and added a small cutting tool. But whatever expression the slave held, in her happiness at finding a plate in the cupboard, was soon washed away. And as she gathered the plate up in her hands, Four, made her way to the table where Vash was seated with Kitai.

[01:52] Vash (Sebedai Charron) just finished kissing his slave, and then straightened again. He ignored four while he finished his work on the binding fibre, and then let out a pleased growl. Of course it took forever for onion to appear with the poison, her dull sullen silence only counter pointed by the big red mark on her cheek. He ignored her as well, simply dismissing her with a flick of his finger to leave her standing in the middle of the room, silent, but glaring a little at the two slave girls. He reached up and took the cheese from fours platter, ignoring the cutting tool, and simply crumpled the cheese in his hand until it fell in little crumbs over the table. He then opened the pouch of poison, and threw in a handful of the crumbs. He tossed this on the table and frowned at four “Put that thing down, now, both of you pay attention. There is an urt running around the outside table. I want you to feed it the poisoned cheese, from the rail while still up here. I don’t want you going down there to play with it. Throw
[01:52] Vash (Sebedai Charron): it some of the poisoned cheese, if that doesn’t get it…throw some of the unpoisoned cheese, and then try to get it’s head in the noose and ……” He shrugged “I don’t know, swing it around some until it stops flopping. “

[01:59] Clarissa Faith watched with interest as her Master made the little trap for the urt, she had no idea what he was doing until he explained it. At which point she looked up and politely pointed out, “Urts don’t really like cheese my Master, they prefer grain, bread crumbs or some oats, or sa tarna wheat would be much better at getting it’s attention…” she shut up and looked down not wanting a sword pummel to the head for being rude. “Another thing my Master…Is is fitting for two mere, pathetic slave girls to go after the vermin when you are such a strong, commanding Master….who has a sword…” she looked at four with a worried furrow to her brow, she did NOT like this plan

[02:02] Four (silk Mendle) watched with a keen interest as Vash, instead of devouring the chase, wasted it – crumbling it, and adding poison. Four looked gutted. She loved to eat cheese. And now! It was spoiled! Tainted with the poison that he had ordered. When both Four and Kitai were ordered to feed the Urts, she cast a look across at Kitai. She looked worried. Not for herself. But for her friend. “I-um… is that… a good idea? We… we might get bit?”, Four asked, cautiously, swinging her attention back to Vash. But who was Four to argue with a Free Man. She were relieved when Kitai too began to question the plan. All Four could do was look down, staring at the floor, listening. Four didnt know Vash as well as Kitai knew Vash. If it were Jamison, Four would’ve put on the waterworks, crying and pleading – this would usually get her way with almost anything she did or didnt want to do. But Vash was not Jamison and all poor Four could do was wait. And keep her fingers crossed that the Man would change His mind.

[02:09] Vash (Sebedai Charron) looked a this slave as he listened to her heartfelt plea, then her emotional and touching admiration of him, her Master, the sheer praise she gave him for having a sword that could kill an Urt. He looked at her gravely, then slapped her upside the head ” I am not telling you to go around the city and poison every Urt, I am telling you to walk just over there, and throw some things off the balconey. If you think grain, or bread might do a better job, then by all means, find some and throw that down there too. Because if you don’t do it, my next idea involves a sirik, coffling two slave girls together, and staking them out in the middle of the square in a box loaded with grain, with an Urt sized trap door in it’s side, ” He looked from Kitai, to Four, and addressed them both “So, would you rather throw a little poisoned meal of cheese and grain from the safety of up here, or be staked out as bait for all the Urts on the dock? ” He lifted a fair eyebrow and waited for the girls to make a choice,
[02:09] Vash (Sebedai Charron): because he was such a fair and understanding Master like that.

[02:14] Clarissa Faith yelped in pain, she was of course expecting it, but it still hurt like hell. She sniffled a bit, and resisted the urge to rub her head which now ached. She didn’t want to be put in an urt trap, that sounded…awful and deadly. Just the thought of it made her heart race and her want to scream. She looked up at four and made a face, one that said, well let’s get on with it. The choice was removed, they had to do it, or die basically, which was the punishment for not obeying any way. So…damned if you do, damned if you don’t. “Yes my sword-bearing Master…” ok she wasn’t letting that one go. Standing slowly, VERY slowly as she wanted to put it off she made her way to the kitchen. Finding old bread and crumbling it up, she didn’t want to touch the poison so she used a rep cloth to sweep the crumbled poisoned cheese into the bowl with the bread. Swirling the contents around before making her way to the balcony, ready to just dump the contents as soon as she saw that furry-faced-fuck.

[02:19] Four (silk Mendle) just stared. The man was just as insane as her Owner, Jamison. And as she stared, the cogs of her brain turned and turned. Four wasnt as quick to move as Kitai, nor was she as enthusiastic. But eventually, her locked stare shifted from Vash to the plate in her hands and with a pout, the slave bent down, swiping some of the cheese crumbs on to the plate that she had held. “Yes…. Master”, Four mumbled to Vash and she did a U-Turn, and looked for Kitai to go and join her. “This is a stupid idea, Kitai”, Four would whisper to her, when she found her. “But… I guess you should ought to know, Kitai. If either of us get bit – you will die and I will not. I am immune to the urt disease”. And as she spoke in hushed tones to Kitai, Four started to sprinkle the cheese, by tipping it from the plate on to the balcony. “I was vaccinated”, Four added, giving Kitai a, ‘i’m sorry’ look.

[02:24] Vash (Sebedai Charron) lifted the tea cup to his lips as the girls departed to see to his instructions. Honestly, the girls were making to much of it, they were in no danger of the thing springing over the balcony to get at them. Something in that mess of bread and cheese would attract the wretched thing, and then the city would be down one Urt. Although the plague of them was starting to get troublesome. He might have to vaccinate himself. He rinsed some tea back and forth in his mouth, then swallowed, and maybe kitai. He didn’t want her to be put out of action by a Urt bite. He smacked his lips and relaxed as was his right as a free man. He wasn’t about to kill the thing with a sword, it was a bit of an over kill, and would leave a mess for days.

[02:25] Clarissa Faith stared at Four for a moment, her expression was blank, but pleasant as she processed the new information she’d been given. “That pleases me….” she said softly, “I am very fond of you and think you are a rare ray of sunshine in a world that can be very dark some times, you always make me smile. If I die, that’s what the Gods have decided for me” She smiled warmly, “I’m glad you will carry on making others smile….I suppose we should get on with this and try our best, in a way we’re being very noble, if it does die we may have saved someone’s life and is there any thing more noble for a slave to do?” She didn’t add that if a slave saves a Free’s life they are then enslaved…but no one would know so it was all OK! Leaning over the balcony she whimpered softly, waiting for the urt to appear before showering it with crumbs, cheese and poison. Hoping with all of her might that the urt would be tempted by this feast, gorge and die!

[02:30] Leala (Shayandris Resident) looks over towards Four and the girl with her would wave towards her but then once seeing the urt she runs runs as fast as she can towards the upper city and hopefully stay away from these beast.

[02:32] Four (silk Mendle) looked a little sad. “Don;t say that, Kitai”, Four said in reply, sadly. “You won’t die… but if you do… wait?”, Four gasped. “Wait – if a slave saves a free life? They – become slaves?”. Four had never ever heard of this law. Her eyes lit up. “Kitai!”, Four was more than happy to hear such a law even existed. “Quick”, Four dumped the rest of her tainted cheese down over the balcony, with more enthusiasm that she had showed before. “If we save all the free… do you think we – could be free?!”, Four glanced at Kitai wide-eyed. The Urts might well have been a blessing and a way for Four to find her freedom. “Imagine that”, she whispered, looking over her shoulder to the other side of the Inn, where Vash was seated looking all high and mighty.

[02:36] Clarissa Faith “if all the Free die of this retched thing…or most of them, I could well imagine…should the slaves out number the Free, a rebellion…” she looked worried, she herself didn’t really have it in her to rebel unless someone REALLY ticked her off, then she lost all of her cool and became a raging beast, it was at those moments sharp objects should be hidden because she had killed before and would do it again without skipping a beat. “But, as we are doing this anonymously so to speak, I do not think we will be enslaving anyone, though, it would be hilarious if we did….” She imagined all the Free she disliked and then poured the last of the mixture. “Do you know that odd Lady chocolate maker got enslaved…she was in chains and everything, it was so funny!”

[02:39] Vash (Sebedai Charron) while he might be sipping his tea, he did catch snippets of the two slaves conversation. Something about free, and dying,
perhaps they were about to nobly sacrifice themselves, and thus be free in the after life. He felt a little tear of pride at the idea, two strong slave girls, willingly going before him to prepare his home in the halls of the slain. He was touched, very moved by it. Although, he probably shouldn’t be greedy, did he really need two slaves in the after life? He had to leave a spot in his ghostly bed for Amai too. He decided he would make sure four got burned with Bjorns corpse so she could suck him off all the way to the long halls of the slain. He would be a good friend like that, so he called out to the two girls “Girls, I commend your brave deeds. ” He waved to them, a little glint in the corner of his eyes, so very proud of them.

[02:42] Four (silk Mendle) listened to Kitai, wide eyed. Four looked back at the little urt skittering around down below, and then, it seemed to disappear, under the table. When did that table arrive? “Maye we will be Ubaras… That’d be kinda… fun”. Four dusted off the plate and at the news that the crazy Chocolateer had been enslaved, Four gasped, then burst out laughing. “Really! I wish I had been there to see that! She hates me!”, and Four quickly stifled the laughs she had let out and cast a cautious look back over at Vash, who was waving, calling out. Four just stared at Him. Soon, he would be a slave. Or better – killed by the nasty Urt Plague. Four grinned, waving back at Him. “Kitai… this plague could wipe out all of Gor. Arent you scared?”

[02:48] Clarissa Faith “Yesterday I think, emergency measures so that citizens can get the vacination so the urts won’t affect them…” she cradled the bowl to her belly. “Tatrixes. I don’t want to have to companion some man to be in power!” She smiled broadly at Four’s reaction, “I know, she hates all slaves, so it was satisfying to see her tripping up over her chains….but who the bloody Gor would want that as a slave, no wonder they just left. I wonder who did it, I’d like to thank him!” She too looked over to see the behavioural patterns of the rodent. “Of course I’m scared, but, Four, as slaves we are in danger of dying every day, just by being unpleasing, so…really this is no different to any other day I suppose. You just do your best, be your best and hope for the best!” The poison distributed she would take the bowl to the kitchen and wash it thoroughly before returning to her Master’s side. She was no where near as affectionate as she had been previously and seemed stiff and irritated.

[02:52] Vash (Sebedai Charron) with the two girls nobly sacrificing themselves, and there was brave four waving back to him. He saw her stare, and she was probably upset that he commended her brave sacrifice. Well that was true enough, a warrior didn’t wish to be recognized or commended for obeying the codes. He had probably demeaned their sacrifice a little by recognizing it. He paused, and rubbed at his chin thoughtfully for a moment, how could he make it up to them? Four seemed particularly upset by it, he knew kitai would willingly throw herself into the fires of hell for her Master, no sacrifice would be to great for her to make for his happiness. But four wasn’t his, so he doubted she wished to make a spectacle of it. He began to reason a little deeper, if such a brave girl wished to make a noble sacrifice, and keep it quiet, then he was duty bound to help her sacrifice not be in vain. So then, he should kill her out of sight of everyone else, then wrap her in silks, and perfumes, when it came time to burn Bjorn, he
[02:52] Vash (Sebedai Charron): could so carefully lay her underneath the pyre before hand, and thus, she would go to the afterlife to serve Bjorn, secure in the knowledge she had done so free of vanity, her motivations pure. His eyes flicked back to his slave, noting her posture, and his eyebrow rose as plotted fours murder. He took a sip of tea “You know my little blossom, for a girl who just helped a city, you certainly do look rather upset by it.”

[02:55] Four (silk Mendle) stayed back, if only to ponder a little longer. But eventually, Four retreated from the balcony and her thoughts. “Well… I wont die”, Four muttered to Onion as she came trotting over to her and the counter and placed the plate down. “Here, Onion… have a plate to wash”, and she hesitated for just a moment. Dark green emerald eyes settled upon Vash and Kitai. Four wasnt a body slave like Kitai. But she had noticed Kitai was not as snuggly towards her Owner as she had been before the two of them had been ordered to poison the urt. Four looked back to Onion. “Well… Onion…”, Four smiled. But when Four looked back at the table, where Vash was seated, with Kitai pouting beside Him, she felt a sudden uneasiness well in her stomach with the look the Free Man was giving poor Four. Four frowned a little at Him. He seemed deep in thought. And it was enough to make poor Four gulp rather fearfully at Him. Was he plotting some lavisicous threesome – with Four and Kitai licking and lapping, …
[02:56] Four (silk Mendle): like needy slaves over Him. If He was, Four would be having none of that! Four was not fond of furring men! Four blinked, looking away. It was probabyl best she avoided eye contact all together with Vash and Kitai.

[03:05] Clarissa Faith didn’t say anything at her Master’s observation, but she tucked her hands in between her thighs and made a stubborn face. She wanted to smack him, soooooo bad. She knew such a thing would get her killed, yet it didn’t stop her hands from itching to do so, perhaps the muscle memory of giving Onion a wollop was not such a good thing. She kept her chin buried, oblivious to his plotting of her friend’s death. She instead turned her thoughts to more pleasant things, like the little bug collections she’d gathered for Four and was going to gift her shortly, and of course her pet urt who she was teaching to read. Finally a smile turned her lips up and returned the twinkle to her eye, of course Vash would try and take the credit for her improved mood, his ego knew no bounds

[03:12] Vash (Sebedai Charron) far from being reassured at his slaves sudden pleasant smile, he began to suspect her old memories returning, which was not going to do him any good. He was not sure he should take her to his furs tonight, perhaps he might even cage her, and put chains on her, just to be sure. Which would make it easier to kill four he supposed. His dark troubled eyes flicked from his slaves sweet, sinister smile, to that of four, standing near Onion. He narrowed his gaze somewhat and flicked his gaze back to kitai. He sipped his tea real slow, watching his slaves hands, her breathing, the look in her eyes. Was she becoming the torturer again? Dare he let her out of his sight, then his eyes widened somewhat, he had let her have access to poisons. He let out a low deep rumble, and glanced back at four, perhaps they hadn’t been talking about their own deaths, maybe they were plotting something. He flicked a gaze back to kitai. He lowered his tea cup and his twisted lips smiled tightly. “With luck, that Urt
[03:12] Vash (Sebedai Charron): should pass along shortly.” He put his tea cup down, and let out a contented sigh “I think I shall have to get that sirik from Trentan sooner then later.”

[03:19] Four (silk Mendle) grunted. Paranoia seemed to creep in. She didnt trust Goreans. Not one of them. Maybe the odd slave, but the free ones, they made her skin crawl. Especially Free Men, who stared at Four in lustful ways. Four shuffled on the spot. “Onion, Im going Home”, she whispered, keeping a cautious eye on the table and on Vash and Kitai. “I’ll see you later”. And without another word spoken, Four hurried as fast as her little legs would carry her down the steps and out of the Inn. Four didnt even look back. Vash, she decided was just as insane as her own Owner. She’d avoid him from now on. Perhaps she would have to avoid the Inn for a while too.

[03:20] Clarissa Faith of course her old memories weren’t returning! She was kept well drugged between Amai and Anna, the suppressant of her memory and the hormone shots lefts her rather docile. He needn’t have worried at all, but she did see the calculating expression, his eyes narrowed and his lip twitched, the tic under his eye went and she knew his thoughts were not of tastas, cuddles and frevets. She whimpered in anticipation and drew away a little, she didn’t want to be struck, or hurt for no reason. She had done nothing but serve him to the letter, she was always loyal, to a fault at times. Wide blue eyes fixed on his face, angelic, perhaps naive expression as she searched his eyes, only guessing at the dark thoughts that were running through his head. Turned to wave after Four in a chipper manner, she really did like that girl!

The Mater of Legion – Magistrate Hearing

Category : Svago General Info

[17:26] William Carver: William would stand and then clear his throat ” Welcome Citizens of Svago todays hearing will be on the recent events that have lead to the death of a Citizen of Svago and another man. Magistrate Kaellaed Rhode will be presiding over this hearing. We will be hearing testimony from several witness to the events one happens to himself to a Magistrate of Svago. Advocates are present, their duties will be to to assist Magistrate Kaellaed and see that the right of any of those giving testimony are protected. This is not an open forum for the Citizenry to call out questions. ” I turned and now looked to Kaellead ” Magistrate Rhode, its your court to call to order when you are ready ” I would then sit down.

[17:27] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) glances over and nods at Malice, seeing him sitting along her bench, turning her attention back to the front.

[17:28] Kaellaed Rhode listens and looks about, as William finishes he puts aside the papers and takes up the gavel.

[17:30] Kaellaed Rhode checks the time and notes it is 5,:30 he lifts the gavel and brings it down, “order, we will have order, The time is nigh for the hearing, which is to resolve once and for all, the entity known as Legion. We of Svago gather here, once again, in the courtroom that has been the setting for so many resolutions of disputes. The latest, as you all know, was the hearing where Magistrate Cleatus was cleared of all suspicion, restored to his capacity as Magistrate, and found by all to be worthy and who has shown his honor, duty and love for Svago. We are here now to witness the hearing on Legion, and of two deaths. One, dearly departed Alex Hayford, who died a hero. But I advance the story. We are called to order for the hearing to resolve the issue of Legion. Order!”

[17:32] Malice nodded to Faedra

[17:33] Malice seeing Latha arrive, Malice stood so she could have his seat.

[17:33] Kaellaed Rhode shuffles some papers and clears his throat, “we begin the hearing on Legion. This is a court of law, there will be no audible responses from any other than a questioner authorized to question, and the responses of the witness. Any other audible outbursts will result in the immediate and physical removal of the offending party. I trust that is clear.” He lifts up his eyes, looks at the reds overwatching and nods.

[17:34] Kaellaed Rhode shifts through the papers and takes out a few leafs folded together, “the first witness is Magistrate Cleatus, please, Sir, arise and take the seat in the witness chair.”

[17:35] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) inclines his head and moved up to take the seat.

[17:37] Kaellaed Rhode: Please state your name, caste, title and homestone, Sir.

[17:37] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I am Cleatus Straaf, Scribe, Magistrate of Svago.

[17:38] Kaellaed Rhode: Please swear to tell the truth, Magistrate Cleatus.

[17:38] Daria (gronne): hearing the Master shuffle behind her she moves to the right so her back is not to him…. turns towards him and offers a warm smiles.then turning her attention back to the hearing

[17:38] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I swear, on my honor, that everything I speak is the truth as I know it.

[17:38] Kaellaed Rhode: Do you understand the significance of that oath to tell the truth, Magistrate Cleatus?

[17:40] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): As a man of Gor and Svago, in addition to being a Magistrate, I well understand the significance of that oath.

[17:40] Kaellaed Rhode: Very well, now, I want to limit the time, if you will allow me. And between the time of the last hearing, where you were cleared, of any and all charges, and restored to your current position, from taht time, until the person known as Legion was piked on the post, can we confine to that time frame, Sir?

[17:41] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) inclines his head, “Yes. we can confine to that time frame.”

[17:42] Kaellaed Rhode: At some time you were aware a man was looking for you and you met that man. What happened leading up to that meeting? Well, pardon me, was there a meeting?

[17:43] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I was in the infirmary with my brother, Soren, and companion, Rosette, It seemed that Soren had received an injury while sparring earlier, and my companion was seeing to his wounds. A slave delivered a note requesting me to meet someone that had proof of treason at the pavilion within 30 ehn of receiving the note. I am able to identify this slave. Yes, there was a meeting.

[17:44] Kaellaed Rhode: proof of treason, a note from a slave. what did you do then?

[17:44] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): When I received this note, I left it on the infirmary bed with Soren and Rosette, so that they would know where I had gone. As I had received threats I did not feel it wise to go without any weapons. I had left my sword in the Administration building earlier in the day. Without asking, I took my brother’s sword.

[17:44] Kaellaed Rhode: pardon me, sorry, you were in the infirmary, were you ill? were you in good health at the time?

[17:45] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): As I said, my brother was injured, I was there with my companion and brother. I was not in ill health.

[17:46] Kaellaed Rhode: Soren, your brother, you took his sword?do go on, then what? you were all fine. please go on.

[17:46] Skaenn: They don’t let non citizen in

[17:46] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): Upon arrival at the pavilion, a man was waiting, dressed in dark clothing, hooded. I approached carefully, again, keeping a distance as there had been threats that had been made. The man began to speak to me, inquiring if I was in fact Cleatus Straaf, the Magistrate. The man identified himself as Trystan of Port Kar, and that Cleatus would know him as another name. He proposed offering me the documents in his possession, asking me what value they would have to me. As I was not sure what the documents were I could not name a price until I saw them. He offered to show me the first one, then we would discuss price. At which time I approached him. To retrieve the document. When I reached for it, he drew his sword on me. Stating “I hope you drank wine, tonight Cleatus. You were a sacrifice from the start. It was either going to be me, Legion, or your own people. Your children will now you a hero.”

[17:48] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) waits to see if Kael would ask any further question up to this point in the recounting.

[17:49] Kaellaed Rhode nods, listening, “you said you picked up your brother’s sword. Were you holding it or had you taken the sword, scabbard and belt and attached it? I mean, you meet this fellow, he says he has a document, and then he drew his sword, I suppose my question is, did you also draw or what did you do when he, this man, in a hood and darkness, took out a document or drew a sword?”

[17:52] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I was on guard, considering the circumstances that lead up to this meeting. So I was prepared to draw, if it was needed. I had my brother’s sword sheathed on my belt until the man drew on me first. At which point is when I drew.

[17:52] Kaellaed Rhode nods, “where is this, when you two talk, and he draws, and then you draw?”

[17:53] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): The pavilion Just behind the very building we are in currently.

[17:54] Kaellaed Rhode nods, ‘I know this is not easy, this next part, but please, and take your time, what all happened next?”

[17:54] Elora Oriana Previn (tahliablue) nods at Demi, not wanting to disturb by talking.

[17:57] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) took a breath and began stating the events, all the way through the encounter. “Unbeknown to me, Alexander Hayford was in hiding. At this moment he decided to make his presence known by initiating an attack from behind on the man identified himself as Trystan of Port Kar, Legion. He delivered a blow to the man’s back. The man then seemed to act on reflex and stabbed Alexander with his sword in the chest. I followed Alexander’s attack as the man fell to the ground, and plunged the sword into Trystan of Port Kar. I immediately ran to the side of Alexander, calling out for a warrior and for a physician. Using myself to assist in getting Alexander to the infirmary, while calling out. My companion emerged from the infirmary at my shouts to assist. The two of us managed to get Alexander to the infirmary and to the bed. I then exited the infirmary to ensure that the man in question was either taken into custody if he was not dead.”

[17:57] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) held his breath for a long time as Cleatus spoke of this again, and slowly let it out.

[17:59] Kaellaed Rhode nods, “you took Alex to the infirmary, both of you were wounded, and this other man, the man you had been talking to, he had been killed by Alex, just as he stabbed Alex. I do ask you to forgive me to have you go through this, is that part right?”

[17:59] Valin Paco Spire (artashes): took all this information in and just listened.. said nothing nothing at all. many proper questions would have been asked.. but he was told this was a hearing and not a interigation.

[18:01] Aisha Thorne Na’Bandit (samira.korpov) would cringe slightly as she heard the details of what happened for the first time she would remain quiet, focused her attention forward riveted to every word that was spoken

[18:03] Kaellaed Rhode nods, “Thank You, Magistrate Cleatus, will you please ask Jamison to come to the witness stand? You are subject to recall, please do not leave just yet.
[18:03] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I was not injured. I did not receive any blows from the man, as ALexander’s heroic actions prevented the man from lashing out at me. Yes, the man had been killed by Alexander, and he had stabbed Alexander. I had slipped to my knee in an attempt to back up, but when watching the man falling, I lunged forward and planted the sword into Leion.

[18:03] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) nods and takes his seat back in the court room.

[18:07] Kaellaed Rhode: Will the Physician Jamison Bernard please come to the witness stand! I even see you skinny as you are.

[18:08] Jamison Bernard (marrtell) hands come up and he stands not wanting to touch the bench. a low caste might of got their cooites on it. He walked over and took a seat.

[18:08] Kaellaed Rhode: Thank you, Sir, please, your name, caste, title, homestone.

[18:08] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) She watches Jamison stand up and smiles.

[18:11] Jamison Bernard (marrtell) would clear his throat. Pressing his clean manicured fingered tip nails to his chest. In a snobbish way.” Jamison Bernard. Physician, Of course. Apothecary. Mortician and Pathologist…. My home Stone. Is Svago… Naturally.”

[18:11] Kaellaed Rhode: this concerns your caste matters, so I know you will tell the truth. You performed an autopsy. the man was notched of ear, had on his person a journal, recall that?

[18:13] Jamison Bernard (marrtell) would nod. looking up to Keallaed.. ” Indeed, Yes. Along with three notes. One was ripped in half, From the looks of it. And a scar over his right eye. Yes I remember it well. ” he said thinking back and still had the mans brain in a jar.

[18:15] Kaellaed Rhode: Do you associate that body with the person or entity known as Legion?

[18:16] Jamison Bernard (marrtell) Again would nod. ” Yes in fact. It would say it on his person. not only him tattooed on his mide body. But the journal was sewn into his clothes. The hem line of his pants. So they had to he his.”

[18:17] Kaellaed Rhode nods, leaning over to look at the Physician, “so, based on your examination, on his tattoo of the name Legion on his mid body, may we stop there and zoom in? bear with me, a tattoo that said what?”

[18:19] Jamison Bernard (marrtell): Legion. ” he said… “not only that the name Trystan.. And Legion are on the notes and the journal. Clearly proving the man to be one of the same.”

[18:20] Kaellaed Rhode nods, “magistrate Cleatus said that Alex and he went to the infirmary do you know of the treatment and what happened to Alex Hayford?”

[18:22] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) closes his eyes, trying not to see it again. Alex covered in blood, his pregnant Companion clinging to him, he’ll never stop hearing her sobbing pleas. A fists closes on his knee for an Ihn as he swallows a moment and then opens his eyes picking the scales to stare at, steel blue eyes full of his thoughts.

[18:23] Jamison Bernard (marrtell) shakes his head. ” I do not. But all of us Physicians can not be here at the same time. And of course we all have training more in other parts of our work then others to make out process’s go faster and more efficient.”

[18:24] Kaellaed Rhode: thank you Jamison, I think you need to eat more. I am rude, ,pardon me. You may be seated.

[18:24] Kaellaed Rhode looks up, “My friend Trentan, please come up, I am sorry I must question you. do bear with me.”

[18:24] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki looks proudly at her grand son “well done” she whispers to him as he passes

[18:24] Jamison Bernard (marrtell): / me would look down at his body and shrug… Standing up.. he moved away and back to his seat.

[18:25] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) rises and moves to the stand, his gaze never leaving the scales until the last Ihn.

[18:25] Jamison Bernard (marrtell) smiles proudly at his grandmother and has a seat.

[18:26] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) turns her attention to Trentan as he was called up, tilting her head to the side, the coin she had been spinning on her knuckles coming to a pause as she focuses.

[18:26] Kaellaed Rhode smiles as Trentan takes his seat. “I know you have borne many burdens of late, and I am support you and Patrice. Let us just be brief. Your brother Alex, what can you tell me of him.

[18:29] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “My Brother Alex-” he pauses for a moment. Recollects, taking a deep breath. “My Brother Alexander was a hothead sir. He was sent here to challenge, and from the moment he was placed an infant in my young arms at sixty, I could tell he would be a force to be reckoned with. I saw him grow to be a man, a son before I had …my son,” he says softly. “He was forged of iron and steel, and the fires of the forge runs hot in his veins, and he had an eye for slaves. He became a Slaver and enjoyed it. Despite being a hothead though, my Brother always stood for what he felt was right, regardless. Always.”

[18:30] Kaellaed Rhode sighs softly, ,”Your brother Alex, he was companioned, to whom was that, Trentan?”

[18:30] Soren Straaf (altruisticegoist) stares somberly, turning to look at his own younger brother, hearing Trentan’s words he nods, respect for the man.

[18:31] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “He was Companioned in Fina to Lady Patrice, one of the many daughters of a rich Merchant because Alexander saved his life, sir.”

[18:31] Kaellaed Rhode: How did Alex, your brother, save the father of his companion, Lady Patrice?

[18:32] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “The man was choking to death, no one seemed to know what to do, it was Alexander who stepped up immediately, without thought or hesitation, and managed to dislodge the choking hazard.”

[18:33] Kaellaed Rhode: So Alex was always there to intervene, to save a dangerous situation, as with his father in law. Tell us of Patrice, his companion.

[18:35] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “Lady Patrice did not come willingly to the wine of Companionship, but she did drink of it on her own power, and honored her father’s wishes. She is a Baker sir, and was well known in Fina. However when Alexander wished to move on, she followed him as was his due, with diligent and due pride she kept to their agreement. They did not always get along, but in time, I feel she grew to love him in her own way, and now will bear him a child,” he swallows softly. Ears turn a bit pink but he told the complete truth,

[18:37] Kaellaed Rhode nods, reaching up to brush his cheek as dust sweeps into his eyes, ‘Patrice is with child, Is she eating, how is she? can you speak of her, the widow of Alex, slain by Legion?”

[18:38] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “We are …. doing the best we can, sir,” he would give him that, at least. “She clung to him in his dying words and her plea for him to stay, her demand to stay for his child … I will not forget it, and I think, had he the power he would have tried -but he left us,” he bows his head slightly. “I saw his first breath and I was with him to the last.”

[18:39] Kaellaed Rhode folds his hands and nods, ‘thank you Trentan. Unless you would say any more, you may be seated.’

[18:39] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) sighs quietly, the loss so evident a pain to the man that she would not be surprised if she looked around to see sadness in every face, but her eyes stayed on the men in the front of the room.

[18:40] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “I do sir, if I may address the court?” he was making sure it would all right.

[18:40] Kaellaed Rhode: yes please, you may speak

[18:41] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) rises but stays in place, “Regardless of what happens here today I speak from a place that would ask your favor of each of you. Legion stole from us, all of us. He twisted your words against you. He prayed on the fears of the hearts of the men and women of Svago, -from us! But the question should be why is this happening? Why weren’t these words so easily discarded? While I know the Legion behind this is dead, I also believe that ‘Legion’ is actually fear itself -and fear knows no Caste. These fears that lurk in the hearts of men and women are our true enemy. What can be done so the people may be strong against these words? What can each of us do to work together to stand strong against this fear?”

[18:42] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “I look to each of you, high and low Caste to treat one another with care and respect -we all share a Home Stone, mingled our Blood as one, we are each a Brother and Sister to one another, so let us come to act like it.” He looks at each person as the continues to speak, “We have shared bread and salt together. Each of us. Let us not be so quick to call one another liar for simple mistakes or misinformation, or come to quickly question each other’s honor. I urge everyone to ask themselves in which Svago they would want to live -one that gives breeding ground to this fear and contempt of one another, or one that laughs in the face of such dangers for they know without a doubt that we are One people? Svagorians through and through. We must chose to stand as One. It’s up to us, individually and a whole to chose this, daily in each and every interaction with one another. It is up to us.”

[18:43] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) bows his head, “And … only us.” He closes a fist on the wood before him. “We all share a Home Stone. I, for one, refuse to be a pawn in a shadow game that would have us at each other’s throat regardless of who drives it. We must trust one another. Legion is dead, and what he wrought on us can not be continued or allowed to rule us. My brother, a Slaver, risked his life to protect a Scribe …because he always stood up for what he feels is right, no matter what. Let it not be in vain. Brothers. Sisters. I ask you, now. Will you chose to stand as One?”

[18:44] Kaellaed Rhode pounds his fist on his thigh, “hear hear, Trentan. We are lucky to have you as Merchant Magistrate. We do need to be unitied, all of us. Your words have great value.”

[18:44] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) turns to the Magistrate, a single tear rolling down his cheek, “May I go, sir?”

[18:44] Kaellaed Rhode: yes Trentan, thank you for your service

[18:44] Terek the Younger (kitten.serpente) thumps his chest in applause for Trentan’s words.

[18:44] Malice stood.. and simply called out.. “Hail Svago!”

[18:44] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) claps her hand to her shoulder at the powerful words of the Merchant Magistrate. “Well said, Sir!” She calls.

[18:44] Kaellaed Rhode: Is Warrior Tjark present?

[18:45] Tjark (kirtanu) stepped forward “I am here”

[18:45] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) returns to his seat, ready for this to be over so he can go home and make sure Patrice eats today.

[18:45] Kaellaed Rhode: Aye, Sergeant Tjark, I see you, please

[18:46] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) as he passed the Administrator he touched his shoulder, a salute and gesture of Citizenship. Nodding to Malice before he settles.

[18:47] Kaellaed Rhode looks up at the Rarius, “name, caste, rank, do you agree to be truthful?”

[18:48] Valin Paco Spire (artashes): he would simply not hold back and spoke up his words on the response to add to Trentans words.. ” if by chance this was not the case and this man was not the Legion we all are set to belive.. I hope all of you understand bull shit games like this is why lives cost and are unneccesarrly lost.. and hope all see this tragedy and speak up of your own conserns we are all of Svago and will all be here for one another.. I for one Swore to this Home Stone and will always put my own life on the line when it comes to the safety of any one of you here “

[18:48] Tjark (kirtanu) proudly rumbled “Tjark of the warriors, Sergeant.” he frowned and pursed his lips “A warrior of honor always speaks truth, Sir”

[18:48] Kaellaed Rhode: arrest that outburst

[18:48] Soren Straaf (altruisticegoist) turns his gaze with a bit of quiet outrage towards Valin.

[18:49] Kaellaed Rhode: Sergeant Tjark, tell us about the man that was recently impaled, what you may know about how he got there?

[18:50] Skaenn: Hearing all this he hope Valin make a run for it.

[18:52] Tjark (kirtanu) pondered that a few Ihn “Sir, i cant tell you how he got here. He was surely not of Svago, so i have to conclude that he came by ship, as that is the only way to reach this island, since only few Tarns will fly over the open waters of Thassa and such birds would be seen. all i can give you is an account of what i saw that night and what i make out of it.”

[18:52] Skaenn: Starts to pace up and down saying Don’t do it, Don’t do it.

[18:52] Kaellaed Rhode: who spiked him, you don’t know?

[18:52] Kaellaed Rhode: belay that

[18:52] Kaellaed Rhode: let me know what you saw that night and what you make of it

[18:53] Tjark (kirtanu) chuckled “I did, Sir, but you asked me how he got here.” he answered that question then nodded “That night i had just reached home after my duty when i heard the shout for a warrior from the infirmary. I hastened there to find the magistrate Cleatus dragging the body of the man called Legion. The magistrate was not wounded but covered in blood, the man called Legion had Sorens sword in his back. Cleatus was in talk with Soren who was heavily bandaged and obviously had come out of the infirmary. The magistrate said Legion had drawn steel on him and Alexander had intervened. In the scuffle Alexander was killed since Legion had thrust “his sword into Alexanders chest”. Cleatus produced a Letter he said Legion had on him which contents said Legion had come to kill him.” ((continued))

[18:54] Kaellaed Rhode nods, listening attentively.

[18:54] Tjark (kirtanu) inhaled deeply “Blood traces showed me the combat had been in the FCing pagoda, the man dragged towards the infirmary. I carried the body to the docks, searched it thoroughly turning the man inside out and upside down and found nothing, not even pocket lint, but 30 silver and the mans sword. Then i piked him and carved the name Legion into his flesh with my blade.” he bit his lips and swished his hands over his forearms then said “I must apologize for handing all that into the magistrates hands that night. It was undue of me to let the man who was attacked handle his own case until he could hand it to another. apologies, Sir. That was my failure. I had been investigating the whole Legion case since weeks. One question remains for me though: why is it claimed Alex has been killed by legions sword, but his death certificate says he was killed by a dagger?”

[18:54] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) looked at the strange man standing outside the gates. His eyes narrowed upon the man as he was sure he had smelt the man’s scent before and recently. “TAl.” he said softly as he considered opening the gates for the man, but he didn’t know if the man was friend or foe.

[18:55] Kaellaed Rhode nods, “how’d you come to decide to carve the name into the man’s dead body?”

[18:56] Diodorus Siculus (orcobal) moves across the floor with his hand on the hilt of his sword, “Valin, drop your weapons and hold your hands forward to be placed in irons”. He walks up towards Valin, speaking quietly so not make a scene.

[18:56] Kaellaed Rhode: As for the autopsy, it has multiple fatal wounds take your pick.

[18:56] Tjark (kirtanu) chuckled softly “So people would know who it was on the pike. The letter produced by the magistrate showed clearly the name the man had used: Legion”

[18:57] Kaellaed Rhode: disarm Valin. This is disorder. We see the tentacles of Legion.

[18:58] Kaellaed Rhode looks back to Tjark, “When you came on the dead body, this Legion, was it that Cleatus was dragging it? From the pavilion? Where were you when you first saw this?”

[18:59] Svago door Lower City (Skaenn Resident took over the menu)

[19:00] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) looked at the man who placed his hand upon the gate, he had just passed by one of the upper city gates that seemed to be tampered with. His left arm slid into the shadow of his cloak and found the hilt of his gladius hidden within his robes. “Strangers typically don’t make it this far into the High City… identfy yourself.>”

[19:00] Valin Paco Spire (artashes): looks to them both.. I will gladly go to the cell my self Dio.. you will do your job there.. and looks to Kael looks to him ” I have every right to speak my mind.. this is a hearing not a trial.. ” and then looks to Dio and smiply walked over to the warriors hall motioned for the man to follow ..

[19:00] Kɪɴɢ 選ばれた天使 βlαcкh3αяt ﮎαηтαηα™ (jaloniee.inglewood) walks up quietly behind Valin leaving distance between them with his hand on his hilt

[19:00] Diodorus Siculus (orcobal) nods and follows

[19:00] Skaenn: Tal I am sorry my thoughts were elsewhere. Thank you for your offer I do feel the need to go in but not being a citizen, well it would get you into trouble..

[19:00] Svago door Lower City (Skaenn Resident took over the menu)

[19:01] Aisha Thorne Na’Bandit (samira.korpov) would sigh as she turns to look at Valin she wouldnt say a peep she would getting her hackles up but she didnt want to end up in the clink besides him she would instead just listen to the testimoney and wondering what Valin do when he took the right action she breathed a sigh of relief silently

[19:01] Tjark (kirtanu) nodded “That is correct. I saw the magistrate dragging the body with Sorens sword in its back towards the infirmary only steps away form the door. I came around the corner coming from the living area when Soren stepped out of the infirmary. I was not even 15 steps away.”

[19:01] Kaellaed Rhode: What possessed you to carve ‘Legion’ into the body’s flesh?

[19:02] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) he looked at the man who spoke finally, the man was old or he was barbarian that had never been touched by the serums. “You have wish to go in, you are still stranger to Svago… your name? homestone? business being here?” he asked calmly, his eyes studying the man. As warriors came and left he didn’t remove his focus from the man. He may be retired, but he was still a warrior at heart.

[19:03] Tjark (kirtanu) canted his head “Sir, Legion was a strain in Svago for weeks, it was proven the man used that name and no signs were available to mark the spike in that instance, so i decided to make an example out of it making clear for any onlooker what fate awaits for enemies of Svago that try to kill us or pry us apart.”

[19:04] Lady Liliyano (kajiralilyano) looks at the sudden arrival of rosette and wonders if there is something else silently

[19:04] Kaellaed Rhode nods, “so you marked him as he was, to your mind, he was Legion, and you had heard others call him Legion, and so, he was Legion. Is that right, Sergeant Tjark?”

[19:05] Skaenn: My name is Skaenn, I am from the North, Tyr’s Fist Stronghold. I came here on a job offer but that did not work out. To this city I am an Outlaw., no home, no caste.

[19:06] ღ Aмεlια Sтεεlε ღ (dorna1983) heard soft steps she looked over and saw Rosette, she would glance over her as she was just having seizures just the other day, she would reach out and place her fingers in Jessnia’s hair before she turned and focused upon the trail

[19:07] Tjark (kirtanu) inhaled deeply “Sir, to that i must answer twofold: the man named himself Legion. But he is not THE Legion and that in double meaning. To explain this i would have to hold a longer speech.”

[19:07] Kaellaed Rhode: you have the floor, soldier.

[19:08] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she rushed into the courtroom glancing about for a moment. Scanning g the room then ehr violet hues fall upon the girl from that night, with the note. She walked over and slipped her hand softly into her hair, only to take a fist full of it tightly. Her violet hues looking down to the girl. Her grip tightening. She castes her violet gaze to Cleatus from across the room. Then falling down to trentan as she let a light cough come from her lips, maybe enough to get one of theirs attention. But not disrupt the hearing.

[19:08] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) looked at the man, speaking as if he were a Torvie but knew enough of the south to believe he would be a outlaw in the eyes of the council. “If you say your a outlaw, then you broke a law… if you have not then you are simply a stranger among citizens.. nothing more and nothing Less Skaenn.. If you wish entry, hand me your arms and I will check them in with the guards. You can be my.. guest.. or you need something more official.. my guard?”

[19:10] Tjark (kirtanu) nodded “Thank you, Sir” then turned around to address the crowd with a stern face. “Here is what i make out of all of this. An outside force used a mercenary calling hinself Legion to distribute the anonymous letter also printed in the Svago post using the regents paper to break low and high caste apart to the brink of rebellion, which points at a rich and powerful man behind the veil. Why this paper? To implicate the 9th and the Spire family unduly. At this point i want to thank for and admire the Regents patience and restraint for the good of Svago.” he crossed his arms in front of his chest “From where that outsider is can only be answered if the source of the parchment is found, the sword of legion is typed, or the coin on the man is not regular one but from a certain region or city. He must have had inside help though. I assume after the Legion death they fast left the city as they had to fear their ruse was up. The people that left Svago recently should be looked into. all hints point towards Port

[19:10] Tjark (kirtanu): Kar.” ((continued))

[19:10] Lib (liberace57): hears the name Skaenn and immediately the hairs on my neck stand up and i say to the guard “do not allow that man in here, he is up to no good, he has been skulking about the city for 4 days trying to make citizenns think he is a city official”

[19:10] Skaenn: Your offer I can not accept I don’t think I could remain silent in there and you would be in trouble.

[19:11] Sooka (valeshkae) moved in silently, wide blue eyes looking around, then she made her way to her Master, kneeling beside him. A soft whisper, closer to him “Greetings my Master” so that her voice would not interrupt the proceeding.

[19:11] Kaellaed Rhode pounds on his gavel shouting ‘order’

[19:11] Tjark (kirtanu) he took another deep breath then spoke on “After the hearing of Magistrate Cleatus, that puppet master of the killed Legion – and he is a puppet what is proven by his correspondence and the payment money of 30 silver on him – decided to up the ante and kill Cleatus. He lured him into the pagoda, tried to kill him. Only Alexander was not planned and that man sacrificed his life for the good of our city saving a high caste. That man is a hero, a true Svagorean who put his Home Stone above his own life. A man who did the right thing despite quarrels. A man who should be a role model to us all.” he gave Trentan a nod “But all of this was only possible because a group of concerned citizens decided to build a front. They decided to act on their own and not trust the system we live in. Head my two stories i told at the campfire, which i had not chosen by coincidence, and learn from them. Trust the law and proceedings or outsiders that want to bring us down can do great damage. Mistakes have been made, we have

[19:11] Tjark (kirtanu): to strife to be better. Mistakes have been heard and taken out of context. Never judge without knowing both sides directly from the source. An example: Lady Patrice pleaded here, it was not heard so it seemed. Shortly after we acted upon threats to a high caste woman. Instantly the rumor sprang up high caste gets better treatment and protection than low. What those people claiming that not know is that between both we warriors decided to act upon threats against ANY FW of Svago more decisively and aggressively. The system works.” he turned around again “That is all i can say, Sir. The piked man was the hand, not the brain, a message was sent by my carving.”

[19:12] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) hears Rose and glances over, noticing she has a hold of one of Gaius’ slaves. He turns back then sharply looks back again.

[19:12] Magnolia (sloaneriley) let’s out a heated shriek when her hair is roughly grabbed. She new better than to say anything so did her best to bite lips and cant her head back seeing who attacked her. Seeing the woman her jaw fell open, hands went up to shield her face at once.

[19:13] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) returns Tjark’s nod as he honors Alexander’s memory.

[19:13] Kaellaed Rhode looks at Tjark, ‘you carved Legion in the man, you felt he was Legion. I am not listening to any other items, this is a trial of who was Legion. So by your hand, you named Legion, isn’t that right?”

[19:14] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) her violet hues still a bit glassy but fierce in this moment. She jerked the girl closer to her, as she yelled. ” Quiet you. Youre in enough trouble.” she said lowly to the girl in a growled whisper she then turned and gave Trentan a very Stern nod. In hopes he understands the nod.

[19:14] Tjark (kirtanu) shrugged “Sir, i do not know how i can make myself any clearer as by my words: the man was the hand of Legion from the outside by that part of it thus labeled as such.”

[19:14] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) he would look at the man, that own admission made him wonder. “One who can not hold his voice, and yet a Stranger to Svago.. do you happen to have a finger or more in what ever was being discussed upstairs?” he looked at the man with a sly smile crossing his lips. There were strings that didn’t line up in his mind with what was being discussed upstairs. “If you can not keep your voice, and you openly stated your a outlaw.. when I ask if you broke a law you negate reply.. if I were a Warrior I would have provable cause….” he paused seeing Teach enter the council chambers. To many strange faces, but this one he knew was in Port Kar recently…

[19:14] Demi Deveroux (lunaryu) looked over to Malice, “I thought this was a hearing…?” she whispered

[19:15] ღ Ṍṥḧṳṅ Ṙṍṥḕ ღ (ginger.boyau) nods looking around “yes my Master”

[19:15] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) turns her head towards the sounds behind her, a lifted eyebrow at the noise of the slave. seeing her gripped by the Physician, but turns her attention back ahead, listening to Tjark’s words attentively, sharp focus in her gaze.

[19:16] Kaellaed Rhode nods, ‘then we need the puppet master, but we got the puppet, you agree with that? we got the instrument? and we can back work to the hand controlling? eh? any idea on that, sarg’ent?”

[19:16] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) heard Rosette, his eyes sharply darted in her direction and saw the slave. He would seek Rosette’s gaze, and nod silently. He would be patient and not speak.

[19:16] Aisha Thorne Na’Bandit (samira.korpov) as she heard Tjark speak she felt secretly vindicated as she had thought that the man on the pike could not have been the infamous Legion she was absolutely riveted now

[19:17] Malice nodded to Fardra and whispered, “That is what the notice stated.”

[19:18] Magnolia (sloaneriley) shrinks back away from the physician only to make the pain more intense against her head. LIps tightly purse together to keep from any other sounds from coming out. She was just kneeling here after all, quiet this whole time.

[19:19] Tjark (kirtanu) smiled and shook his head “I cant give you a name or a target, Sir. That would need further investigation as i hinted at. But yes we got the puppet and cut its strings. The hand is running free. Looking at the evidence found all points towards the city i named, but that must not be it after all that port is a crossway of many things”

[19:20] Skaenn: I tell I am an Outlaw because other here call me that, As I said I have not caste. As to the events inside. I took it on myself to look into it. I found the blood in the plaza behind us and showed them to the Sergeant., he did not know of them.

[19:20] Sooka (valeshkae) peered over to the slave that had made some kind of noise, even with the many people talking, the shriek was not hard to notice. She saw that it was Magnolia, and her eyes widened. What had the girl done to the free woman to be chastised during the hearing. Sooka looked to her Master then down towards his boot.

[19:21] Kaellaed Rhode: So you will stand by for your carving, that the piked body was Legion, that Alex died a hero. that this sorry state of affairs can be concluded. Mind you, all stones leave ripples, but some chimes need minding. Can we leave off that Legion is Dead, he was piked, Alex killed him as a hero, and we of Svago, and step forward, unified, how may that sound, Sergeant Tjark of Svago?

[19:21] ღ Ṍṥḧṳṅ Ṙṍṥḕ ღ (ginger.boyau) looks over her eyes wide “So he died for nothing my Master?”

[19:21] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) her gaze then fell upon Cleatus’s as she jerked the girl once more, Harshly this time looking down at her breaking gaze. ” Follow.” she said sternly yet quietly as not to disrupt the session.She began to walk with out giving the girl a chance to reject her order. Dragging her over to her brothers and companion. Waiting Quietly.

[19:22] Tjark (kirtanu) nodded “I can agree with that, Sir, if we call the instrument of the outside force Legion”

[19:22] Kaellaed Rhode: very well, I won’t mince words, thank you Tjark

[19:23] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) rises to allow Rosette to be seated next to her Companion. He nodded as Tjark named the traitor Legion, as he was clearly.

[19:23] Magnolia (sloaneriley) barely gets off her knees before her body was being yanked and drug across the floor. Stumbling forward hands reached out to catch herself from calling but ended up yanking on the womans skirts.

[19:23] William Carver: William listened and was nodding and how was waiting to see if something would be concluded now

[19:24] Tjark (kirtanu) stepped back and to the side to yield the floor.

[19:24] Kaellaed Rhode looks up to William and Nikki, “based on the testimony, Legion is Dead, he was Trystan, Alex is a hero, as is Cleatus. If any have anything to say, now is the time.

[19:25] Soren Straaf (altruisticegoist) stands quietly, waiting.

[19:25] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she wrapped her hand tighter around the girls hair gripping close to her skull now ” I have something to speak.” she spoke loudly. holding the girl tighter” This is the slut that brought cleauts the note” she barked out.

[19:25] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki looks up and only add “I would recognize the caste of physicians, the work rosette did in an attempt to save Alex and the work by Jamison in uncovering much evidence”

[19:26] Kaellaed Rhode: yes, if rosette can come up to add about alex?

[19:26] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) sighs softly the man admitted again to being a outlaw. “Did you tamper with the gate to enter the High City?” he asked, man was forth coming so would least ask the man to see how much he would admit too.

[19:27] Magnolia (sloaneriley) couldn’t hold it back this time and cries out in pain. “Please lemme go” she pleased ever so softly with the woman.

[19:27] Magnolia (sloaneriley): *peads

[19:27] Kaellaed Rhode looks up as William stands, “Administrator.”

[19:27] William Carver: Stood, and then so close but sat back down, he would glance over and just wait to see now what would happen.

[19:28] Magnolia (sloaneriley): really meant to type *pleads)

[19:29] Soren Straaf (altruisticegoist) sits down as well, waiting his turn.

[19:29] ღ Ṍṥḧṳṅ Ṙṍṥḕ ღ (ginger.boyau) quickly lowers to her knees by her Master’s command “yes my Master” her icy orbs darting around the room listening to the going ons quietly

[19:30] Kaellaed Rhode: I testimony and the facts can only lead to the conclusion that Tyrstan, the piked outlaw, was Legion, based on the body, the notes, the journal, the attack upon Cleatus, the battle with Alex, the heroic defense of Alex. That is the finding.

[19:30] Skaenn: I will tell you this. I am Serpent Ship Captain. I lead raids, attacks, committed piracy. So Iam an Outlaw. Now what do you think?

[19:30] Sooka (valeshkae) heard Rosette speak of Magnolia, but she kept silent. Her hands placed on her lap calmly. She would only listen to what would happen next.

[19:31] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) looked to Rosette, “My Companion, There is no need to torture the girl. The findings have proven what we came here to prove.”

[19:32] Skaenn: Hearing Cleatus, he shakes his head.

[19:32] Kaellaed Rhode looks up to Magistrate Cleatus, “do more need to be heard, Sir?”

[19:33] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) nods as Kael speaks, he’d known in his heart, in his bones, and in the very Blood of Alexander Hayford that runs in his own veins, that Alex had struck true, taking out Legion, and now the discord come to light it can be put to rest, as he would be in a few days.

[19:34] Kaellaed Rhode stacks up his papers, and looking to the crowd, “the hearing is ended. Be well.”

[19:34] Skaenn: Looking at who is coming. “Here trouble.”

[19:34] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) gestures to the slave in Rosettes grasp. “My companion has a hold of the girl that sent the note.”

[19:34] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) her grip tightened as she moved forward as she was addressed. ” Thank you Nikki for that recognition as well as thanking our caste. Aye, I was the one to work upon Alex up until his final moments. ” she shook her head blinking a few times for known reasons. Jerking the girl again. ” THIS girl is the one who delivered the note to Cleatus to be summoned at the pavilion” looking to cleatus as she raised a brow. She was still confused in her own mind. ” This girl is the one who brought the note” she repeated herself.

[19:34] Kaellaed Rhode: I would like it noted, 2 Ahn.

[19:35] Lady Liliyano (kajiralilyano) looks around wondering why something being noted would take 2 earth hours

[19:35] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) he looked at the man and would shake his head. “I think the only reason you would be here is if you knew what was going on, and that you have a part in it. I already know one man that I’ve seen in Kar recently entered this building moments ago.. I also note I seen a gate tampered with but moments ago and now your here with a hand on my gates … I have every reason to draw steel and knock you on your ass old man… the only piece of the puzzle I’m not finding a fit is why are you here.. are you in any way related or identify yourself as “Legion”?” he looked at the man with a serious look in his eyes. If the man reached for his steel, Pyr would draw fast and quick. His heart might not be the best at the moment, but he could get a few quick swings in before he started to fight exertion.

[19:35] Kaellaed Rhode: Rosette, if the girl is a slave she must be tortured so if she is yours come up here with her and pull some of her short hairs out.

[19:36] ღ Aмεlια Sтεεlε ღ (dorna1983) stands up and waves her fingers to Jess ” come mine, lets go, i need some wine”

[19:36] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) chuckles

[19:36] Soren Straaf (altruisticegoist) stands slowly, keeping quiet on what he’d have said and turns to regard Rosette and the slave.

[19:36] Lib (liberace57): says in a quiet voice to the Warrior “there is a ma outside called Skaenn, he is a trouble maker do not let him into the hearing”

[19:37] Skaenn: Chuckles “I think I know who this Puppet Master they speak of is.

[19:37] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) closes her eye a few Ehn, pleased enough with the outcoming, which might have gone a number of ways.

[19:37] Magnolia (sloaneriley)’s arms flail about as she is yanked and jerked this way and that way, by the time the woman would be done her head would be bald. “I did as I was told!” struggling to stand or kneel at this point, not sure if she should be quiet or speak. Eyes went about the room looking for her owner, “The short ones? She’s yanking out all the long ones now.”

[19:37] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) would sigh “Well that answers that..” he said simply as he would look at the man. Seeing a Rarius come up “Warrior..”

[19:39] ℒillianna (badbunny2011) quietly sighs and keeps back from the gates till the ruckus is over. finishing her drawing from memory

[19:39] ღ Ṍṥḧṳṅ Ṙṍṥḕ ღ (ginger.boyau): Master becareful..she calls after him not liking this at all but it wasnt her place to tell her Master what to do

[19:39] Skaenn: Turning to Tjark “Good for you Sergeant, you spoke.the truth.

[19:39] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) sighs deeply “Kings help me..” he muttered under his breath. Pulling his cloak back he pulled his sword. “Under the authority of the Council of Svago. You have openly admitted to being a outlaw, and now possessing information of those who have plotted and caused disrest within Svago. You can surrender your steel or I will see you on the ground after you meet Gorean Steel.. how do you answer Skaenn the outlaw?”

[19:39] Kɪɴɢ 選ばれた天使 βlαcкh3αяt ﮎαηтαηα™ (jaloniee.inglewood) hears a man call him, looking toward the man “Tal sir how may i be of help to you?

[19:40] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) stood slowly, nodding to Kael, politely, “Thank you for the hearing. The girl is not ours. I simply identify her. I do not know what information she holds.”

[19:40] Kaellaed Rhode looks up to Lady Rosette and magnolia, “does she wish to speak? Otherwise I would call recess as the matter is closed.”

[19:41] Kɪɴɢ 選ばれた天使 βlαcкh3αяt ﮎαηтαηα™ (jaloniee.inglewood) hears the mans words and {Draws his weapon

[19:41] ღ Aмεlια Sтεεlε ღ (dorna1983) coming out of the hearing she sees a group of men about ” Tal ” she would quietly say

[19:41] Tjark (kirtanu) stepped outside as the girl was being handled and needed a moment to assess the situation in which steel was drawn. His hands went instantly to his weapons “What is the matter here?” he rumbled

[19:41] Demi Deveroux (lunaryu) pushes up from teh seat as i seemed the hearing was over, “I appreciate you letting me use the seat sir Malice.” she dipped her chin to him.

[19:41] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she shakes her head looking to kael with her rather empty hues at this moment ” She is not mine. ” she looks at trentan with a raised brow with a certain look in her eyes ” I do not know who owns her. But she was the one” she nodded softly she wobbled a wee bit but caught herself. Though she wouldn’t let go of the girls hair. Jerking her again for speaking out” Did as you were told?” she raised her brow. ” Who…” she said rather… strangely.. Her injures still at large. ” I blelieve she will speak if she knwos waht is good for her.” she nodded softly ” If she speaks a different tongue can be of use and translate” she said looking to kael.

[19:42] Skaenn whispers: Laughs out loud, “What fool I have been I have tried to help a city, yet I am treated less then an urt.

[19:42] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) rises, “This is the slave of House Varro, Gaius calls her Magonlia,” he identifies her and then sits down.

[19:42] Kaellaed Rhode looks to Rosette, “she gave a note to Cleatus? Also and you treated Alex? was he awake and alert when he first presented?”

[19:42] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): *Magnolia

[19:42] Aisha Thorne Na’Bandit (samira.korpov) would hear what was a drawing of some kind of weapon her head would turn towards the stairs and wonder what the hell was happening now she would shake her head slightly and turns to what is going on in here

[19:43] Soren Straaf (altruisticegoist) moves down out of the courtroom to gather his weapons and heads out the door to the commotion.

[19:43] Lady Liliyano (kajiralilyano) looks at rosette and motions silently to her goad if needed

[19:44] Lib (liberace57): “Daughter get back here,” he says in a raised voice

[19:44] Skaenn: takes out his sword and throws it to the ground. “Here I am unworthy of it. I do hope you find a man more worthy of it.. “

[19:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) he would look at Skaeen “Quite the choice of words… Under Gorean Law, Outlaws are typically killed on sight. Being you are still breathing, count yourself fortunate. Maybe if you release information to the Magistrates.. they may see you to a oar for the rest of your days.” he would state simply “Sergeant, this man has openly admitted to being a Outlaw.” he said simply and watched Skaenn toss his sword ot the ground.

[19:44] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) glances behind her at Trentan’s words about the slave, then looks back at the slave Rosette was holding onto, crossing her arms as she waited to see if the slave’s words would be taken or not, the case closed, as it were.

[19:44] Kɪɴɢ 選ばれた天使 βlαcкh3αяt ﮎαηтαηα™ (jaloniee.inglewood) listens to their words as he grips his blade “no do as you wish i just want to make sure im attacking him for a reason” watches the man throw his weapon down

[19:45] ღ Aмεlια Sтεεlε ღ (dorna1983) looks around confused.. but then searches for her papa and slave.. not seeing them about she runs to a pillared and stands back watching

[19:45] Kaellaed Rhode bangs his gavel, “the matter is decided, please go all in peace.”

High Council Hearing

Category : Svago General Info

[18:03] William Carver: ” Men, Women come to order if you please, this hearing will come to order. The rules are simple Cleatus is here to provide a response to questions raised about his job performance and possible violations of the law. If you speak without being called upon you will be removed. ” I looked to Cleatus ” Sir, I trust you have had sufficient time to make your statement ready to present to the Council ? If you are ready you may present it now “

[18:06] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) entered, scroll case in hand. prepared as best he could be for what was about to happen. His eyes went to his companion. A confident nod went to her. Hearing that he may begin, he stepped straight forward, standing between the two podiums. “I have prepared.” With that, he looked across the council members and began his statement.

[18:07] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): mistakes I have made. We all know each city runs their processes different, as is their right. I have learned much of how Svago manages affairs through mistakes and correction and later through more intensive communications. Though I do not bear the title of High Magistrate, or as of this moment Magistrate, I have found myself in the position of seeing to much of the tasks associated with said position, without the authority or communications to support it. I shoulder much of the blame in this. I stand accountable for this, and the mistakes that were made in that.

[18:07] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): Today, I stand before the High Council. The same High Council that appointed me as Magistrate. That very same day of appointment the High Magistrate, at that time, asked me to serve in his wake and it was agreed upon by the Administrator. When that High Magistrate tenured his resignation, I continued to perform the same duties I had been prior. At that time, I had no desire to seek the position of High Magistrate, though I was shouldering some of the responsibilities that fall under the weight of said title, I believed with authorization of the Administrator As a scribe, I should have known to have this in writing, with a list of duties that I was to perform; and that is my error. In doing, and understanding these actions, and taking heed of what actions were presenting themselves, it would have proven to aid in the prevention of some confusions and errors that later took place. This is the first of many lessons learned since my arrival, and it is a hard lesson to learn. Yet, it was only the first of my

[18:08] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): It was clarified, exactly what roles Magistrate Kaellead Rhodes and myself would take. As the Administrator stated yesterday, I was to coordinate efforts and lead in documentation and provide reports to the High Council. As you could see from the meeting yesterday, a new format has been devised to more comprehensively provide information to both the High Council and the citizens of this Home Stone. A small sign of how improvements have been coming forward, with transparency to all. Such transparency that provides an opportunity for the legal offices to answer to the High Council, as is our duty.

[18:10] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I have made my aspirations for the position of High Magistrate known. I will not deny this. I believe I am the right man for the job and I remain confident in that, despite the mistakes I have made. I have grown and learned from those errors. I do not blame the entirety of the unrest on the lack of High Magistrate. However, I do believe that it is a contributing factor. It was made clear to me that I should remain within the scope of the Magistrate position and specific assignments. I took that to heart. Leaving no other than the Administrator and the Head of Scribes to manage the legal department’s day to day activities, in addition to the duties of their respective posts. I have been told I am one man and cannot do it all, they too are single men and cannot do it all, with all respect. The legal department is a team, the city depends on it to be functional and communicative. Training needs to take place, processes and procedures adhered to. Reinforcement of the training, accumulation of information, etc.

[18:10] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): The lack of some of these items has contributed to some of the unrest.

[18:11] Kaellaed Rhode perks up hearing his name spoken.

[18:11] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): As a Magistrate you are thrown into situations that call for immediate and decisive actions. Two of the items called to the attention of the council were such decisions. The first being the case with the Praetor, Cron. I addressed this yesterday. The second being the man visiting from Port Kar. When he was presented to me he had stated that the Warrior Neph had turned him away before. I did not know the circumstances in which the man left, in regards to the agreement between himself and the Administrator. I will also add the man changed his story in that regard as well. I even stated that I would not go against our Administrator. I trusted that if the man truly wished to speak with our Administrator, that he would have left the note with the Merchant Magistrate as he stated he would do. My understanding is that did not take place. He was not forcibly removed, he was simply asked to leave his letter and it would be delivered.

[18:13] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I know you have all seen me out and about within the city. Whether it is taking dinner with my companion, or investigating a case, or even still answering the questions of citizens. I also know that many days I am up early and stay until the knocks on my door end, returning to my home late at night. Some of you have even witnessed the line at my door, or had to wait in that line. It is not uncommon for this to happen. I do this for the love of my Home Stone. For the love of the peoples herein.

[18:14] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I live by the laws, review them daily, reflect on them. Yes, I sent a letter to the Administrator asking for clarification in regards to how to read the section on Merchant Law. This would make a difference significantly in how I handled the urt case. I still have not received a response to that, though I believe that my later conclusion is the correct one. And, I will also admit that it was initially brought to me while I was rejoicing in the birth of my son and daughter. The first time taking them out in public, as I recall. Perhaps the High Council will understand my distraction and how that would have been an abnormal circumstance, perhaps that my judgment was not correctly placed.

[18:16] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): Administrator, I came to you one day. I told you of my aspirations changing. That I wished to take hold of the position of High Magistrate. You spoke of keeping an eye on the pulse of the City. I have felt the pulse first hand, more than once. I have been taken hostage by a man of my own Home Stone with the intent of that man to fight to the death. Attacked in my own streets, while my companion was taken as bait for a Killer. I stood between, two brothers of this Home Stone, one of my own caste, of my own offices, lashing out in anger with a blade, and a man twice my size, while unarmed in the defense of this Home Stone. Yes, I have a finger on the pulse of the city. You asked me about standing alone in the dark alone to face the beasts that seek to destroy me. And I stand here, facing the High Council. Alone, in the darkest of my days. a man who simply wished to serve my Home Stone and the peoples for which I share my bread, I share my salt, I share my fire with all of you. My loyalty and my honor in

[18:16] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): question.

[18:18] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): Mistakes will be made. Administrator, you have said that yourself. I am but human. The only way we do not make mistakes is to do nothing. For, if you are doing nothing what mistake can you make? To be able to take on such a position as a Magistrate, you cannot be afraid to make those mistakes, and answer to them. I stand here, ready and willing to answer to what I have done, learn from them, and move forward with those lessons of the past.

[18:20] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) took a deep breath as he finished his statement, taking a moment to meet the eyes of the High Council before him, individually.

[18:21] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she fiddled with her gown her heart sinking a little bit as her gaze looked to her companion. she took a deep breath in as spoke. she shfited her gaze away for a moment to caste glare at the council members watching.

[18:31] William Carver: William would lift up a sheet of paper and read from it slowly, carefully ” 2.10.B) Treason; This is defined as the act of trying to overthrow and undermine the High Council of Svago and it’s leading Citizens., …. 2.7 Once a topic or case is ruled upon it can not be brought up a second time. ……2.1.B Praetors are appointed by the High Magistrate, or should there not be a High Magistrate at that time the Head of Scribes, Regent or Administrator. They report directly to the High Magistrate, or should there not be a High Magistrate at that time the Administrator, under the authority of the High Council but remain, in matters of their caste under the jurisdiction of the Head of the Caste of Scribes, as they play a dual role as both upholder of Civil law and their duties as a scribe…….2.10 Civil criminal Acts: Based on laws defined by the City High Council, and agreed upon will be enforced by the Legal Branch of the government….. These are just a few points of interest for the Council to

[18:31] William Carver: think upon. It is quiet evident that there was some major mishandling in the case of Praetor Cron. 1. You should of never allowed the crowd to get out of control… the basics of law enforcement are…. ask, tell, make .. ” I would indicate the Warriors in the room ” If you don’t know that the Make aspect. ” I paused there for a moment ” When you reached the point of allowing an honor duel that should of been the end of it. Yet you deprived a man of his liberty because of your fear. I told you that when a man takes up the title of Magistrate he may well die having to uphold the creed and code, it is not a mantle of convince Sir ,Yet let us push past that… What should of been a simple case, you held the man in a cell with out council or charges for 2 days. And only when pressed on it did you carry out your duties. And then only to place the man under… an illiterate man of low caste. The same man who you expected to deliver a message to the Administrator about Kylo. Yet I have not heard you

[18:31] William Carver: address any of these items. ” With that William paused ” Fellow men of the Council if you have something you would say, I would offer to you this time to speak “

[18:36] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) listened to the Administrator, he would then begin to write a few notes, while he awaited his time to speak.

[18:37] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) ‘s eye slightly twitched for a moment as she listening. She began fiddling with the paper that lay in her hand. she eyed her companion. Then her violet gaze set on the men speaking.

[18:38] Terek the Younger (kitten.serpente) clears his throat and raises a hand for recognition.

[18:38] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) he would look over the scrolls, catching up from the proceedings til his arrival and would look up at the Administrator as he called for any of the council to speak. Wasn’t entirely sure on how to take his turn at voicing his question or concern, but would look over to the Hallowed one to see if the High Initiate wished to speak…

[18:39] William Carver: ” Yes Brother Terek ” I would nod to him

[18:39] Niall Carver (bastnine) was deliberating what he’d heard, his face creased in concentration.

[18:39] Kaellaed Rhode looks up to the gathered members of the council, having heard the Administrator’s words, and noted his tone. He was reminded of the image some had of justice, eyes covered, one hand with a balance and one with a sword. A fair hearing, a chance to be heard. Due process was served.

[18:39] Terek the Younger (kitten.serpente): “I seems to me that Treason would require an intent to attack the Home Stone. So far, it appears from what I have heard that malfeasance or dereliction of duty would be the most we could set as an accusation.”

[18:42] William Carver: “Thank you Terek, I concur I do not believe the mans heart or intent was to do harm to the home stone. ” I looked over to Pyrnir ” Brother Pyrnir

[18:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) he would look at William and takes a deep breath. “Please forgive me, if I seem out of place with this question as my study of Gorean Law is more of forced spoon fed from my late father. In the matter of the Praetor Cron being placed in a cell for two days, what is the standing statute of limitations on detaining a prisoner without former charges? I ask this mainly on the point that every city is different, Ar was three days while Cos was only one… Within Svago even as a warrior, I’ve detained stranger and citizen alike up to a full day before releasing them after a situation or a period of time passed where heads can cool off or sober up..”

[18:45] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw): formal*

[18:46] Niall Carver (bastnine) looked over at Pyrnir for his observations. As usual, Niall saw multiple possibilities for the way events had unfolded.

[18:49] William Carver: ” To arrest anyone, a charge should be on the books against that person if they are a Citizen or Resident of Svago, the arrest warrant itself requires a charge to be valid. Warriors we typically grant lea way in matters of security to take someone into custody to leave for the Praetor or Magistrates then to judge them. He was standing as a Magistrate, he is held clearly to the highest of standards. “

[18:50] Lady Liliyano (kajiralilyano) raised her hand having a legitamate question to ask the court

[18:52] Niall Carver (bastnine) tilted his head. “I have something to say,” He’d request quietly.

[18:52] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) would nod to WIlliam’s words and considered the weight of a situation. He had more questions but yielded to Niall.

[18:52] Terek the Younger (kitten.serpente): So do we have an Advocate for the City to list the specific laws that are claimed to have been broken by the accused?

[18:53] William Carver: ” Brother Niall, your words please ” I would offer

[18:54] Kaellaed Rhode pipes up to reply to the initiate, “William mentioned 2.10B treason, 2.7 closure, 2.1B procedure, 2.10 basis for civil and criminal acts.”

[18:55] Niall Carver (bastnine) “If that no harm was intended is the case, then impalement would not be warranted, but further consideration for head magistrate would not be either.” Niall considered what he’d both witnessed himself in the last hands and what he’d heard. “Not at this time at any rate. I keep seeing a recurring theme of being unable to control situations that come across Cleatus’s path.” He’d speak deliberately, and gravely. He was not enjoying what he’d come to determine. “That is all for this time.”

[19:01] William Carver: ” Thank you Niall ” I turned to Terek ” It is not my intention to determine a guilty or innocence of this man, the Council is the last resort of a convicted man for justice. The goat is to determine if the man is fit to continue to serve the Council as a Magistrate and …. or if he should be refereed to the Court for formal charges and hearing. That is the questions before us today “

[19:01] William Carver: *goal

[19:01] Terek the Younger (kitten.serpente): I see

[19:04] William Carver: Seeing no other hand raised ” Cleatus, you may make another statement”

[19:04] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I will address these in order of how you presented them.
The escalation was swift. I believe that had Cron not arrived and drawn his sword when he did, the matter would have died out. It was a non-violent group. They simply wished to be heard. I was not aware that Cron had arrived until his steel was drawn in the midst of the crowd. Bjorn had drawn in defense of himself, as any man would do. With all due respect, my eyes had scanned the crowd for a man donning red. There were none present.

[19:04] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): I detained the man based on the following:
2.9.1 The power of arrest lies with the Magistrates, Praetors and any member of the Warrior Caste of the Isle of Svago. These alone may detain or order the arrest of any Citizen or Visitor for breaches of the peace or investigation of violations of the applicable law. Any order issued by a member of the Warrior Caste must be obeyed, including removal of weapons.

[19:05] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): He remained in the cell for no longer than 16 Ahn, not two days. His temper was elevated, even after the duel. I felt that for the protection of the citizens it would be best to detain him for that to subside. By his own admittance he was in a state of mind that he would have initiated another episode.
As for the choice of punishment. My thought process was simple. To attempt to develop some report between him and the Merchant Magistrate. Are we not to work together? Are we not to have respect for each other? I did not consult you in this. Perhaps my attempt was misguided.

[19:05] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) nodded to Terek, as he was about to speak on the treason charge. and then William, “It has never been my intent to do harm to the Home Stone, but to protect it and the people. Then, looked then to Niall. “Have you been informed of the cases where I have managed to control situations? In general, people do not speak of the good deeds we do. Yet, often they speak of the negative. I do not go without fault, but what of the situations that never rose to be an issue, due to my efforts?

[19:09] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer): The cases that I have come across my desk are closed, within reasonable time. They are reported, as quickly as possible, they are investigated, and closed.

[19:09] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would nod ” from what i have heard from Cleatus, it was just a mistake and in his job, i do not see him wanting to harm the homestone, but in fact protecting it, just went about it the wrong way, everyone makes mistakes, its what you do with your mistake and learn from it ” he would say

[19:10] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) nodded to Octavius, falling silent again.

[19:12] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she shifted her violet hues once more to her companion her hands fiddling with the ruffles of her dress in habit. Carefully listening to what is being said around her.

[19:15] Lady Liliyano (kajiralilyano) raised her hand and spoke when she thought the room was silent “Your Honour, I lady lilyano would like to obtain permission to ask cleatus a question concerning one of his statements.”

[19:16] Kaellaed Rhode perks up as he hears the chocolate lady pursue her earlier expressed desire to speak

[19:16] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) would gather his thoughts while the other councilors spoke their questions for clarification. When Cleatus stated his defense in this regard he would raise his finger to speak if the Administrator deemed it worthy he could voice his thoughts. But would wait if the Administrator would allow the Lily to voice her question.

[19:17] Kaellaed Rhode looks at Charlotte’s braids and Dio beyond her, he imagines the next edition of the Post will be a double issue.

[19:18] William Carver: ” I suppose Cleatus, I still have yet to make my point clear to you, your sentence of Cron, was in direct violation of 2.1.B . I will be plain as I can with you now. IF, this council allows you to take the mantle of Magistrate, and make such a ruling again, I will be left with no choice but to believe you sir are a part of this Legion that has been targeting this Council and members of the High Caste. At which point I will not been nearly as merciful as I have been with you in this inquiry of your behavior. ” William paused and looked at Lilyano ” Woman, be silent or I will have you removed. ” I then looked to Cleatus and continued ” I suggest you take a look at what a Merchant Magistrate is and Merchant Law it will be interesting reading I suspect “

[19:18] Kaellaed Rhode finds his charcoal nub breaks in his notebook as he hears William.

[19:20] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would look to

[19:20] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): (( sorry ))

[19:20] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) allowed his temper to flare for the moment, “I am NOT associated with this Legion or in collusion with his effects. I am in fact against it or him or her or whatever it is!”

[19:21] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she heard ladly lilliyano ask a question so she took this as her moment to stand and cleared her throat, she looked to the council. ” High Council. If it is allowed I do have something i wish to share with you. That is rather important to what might be going on to shead some light on the situation from the people of svagos perspective. If i am alowed to approach. ” she looked to cleatus for a moment

[19:23] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) nods the implications of himself and Cleatus with this terrorist worthy of an angry response, but he remains silent as he waits to see if he will be called today.

[19:24] Diodorus Siculus (orcobal) holds up his hand towards rosette, “no talking, what did you not understand Lady?”

[19:24] William Carver: ” Councilors, we will now vote. A yes vote to reinstate Cleatus a no vote will refer this matter to the courts, 3 votes will carry the matter, I will abstain unless there is a tie as we have a representative from all the Castes. We will vote in order of Caste ” William would say and then I paused ” Lady, sit down, that the last warning I hand out, Warriors one more stands up, just drag them out. ” I then took a breath ” Initiates”

[19:25] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga)’s eyebrows rose, folding her arms over her chest to still the movement of her fingers prone to fidget. Her brow furrowed, veil fluttering with frustrated exhalations of breath.

[19:26] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) took a deep breath, relaxing back into his place at the podium. It wanted it clear that that allegation that he would be associated with that traitor was outlandish and not something he would be a part of. He stood a bit taller as the votes were called.

[19:26] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she looked to them and sighed sitting back down. staring them intently down with a twitched brow.

[19:28] Terek the Younger (kitten.serpente): My opinion is that a Magistrate must have the full confidence of all involved with enforcing the law. I would like to have a period where specifics can be brought forward to see if a trial is actually warranted. I will, on that basis vote “No” and ask to revisit he question within a reasonable length of time.

[19:30] William Carver: I nod to Terek ” Scribes “

[19:32] Niall Carver (bastnine) “I find I am still turning over the case in my head.” Niall is not one to make anything like a snap judgment. “I would like to give him the chance to show that he is able to prove me wrong, and so, I will vote yes.”

[19:33] William Carver: I would nod to Niall ” Builders “

[19:34] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) takes a deep breath and speaks his voice on this matter “The role of a Magistrate is a difficult one, for a man who wields the power to sentence death should be held accountable to swing the sword. With Cron’s own words in defense of the Magistrate’s actions at the Council Meeting.. I believe Cleatus was handling a situation as any man charged in maintaining the peace. As Bjorn drew in defense, the agitator in the situation from what has been stated today was Cron. The arrest and detainment of the man was on grounds of ‘Security’ of the situation. If it were a warrior, if present that made the same call to detain the Praetor then I don’t think the Warrior would be questioned on his intent. As for the detainment length, that falls on a judgment call and I agree council should of been provided at earliest convenience if not releasing the man with a sentencing of fine or civil service provided without pay.” he would pause and look to William. “The weight of this doesn’t fall on a dis-service or ill intent

[19:34] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw): against the homestone but questioning the methods of a man handling a situation that could easily spiral out of control if not have the blood of a city official adorning our streets. Which a Magistrate in my opinion has to balance the scales and act with the available resources. While some of his actions are questionable, I do not see disloyalty or incompetence. We are all human, low caste or high caste we are this in common and as humans we make mistakes and we as humans have to make decisions that not everyone if anyone would like when a heavy situation is placed upon our shoulders.” Looking back to Cleatus. “I do not see you a threat, but I do see the stress of the position placed upon you with balancing of your current responsibilities as a Magistrate and by your own admission some of that of the High Magistrate. Builders at this time do not see fit at this time to remove you from your office, but at this time can’t support you at any time in the near future for the role of High Magistrate.” he would

[19:34] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw): pause “In Short, Builders Vote Yes to reinstate Cleatus as Magistrate”

[19:35] William Carver: ” Physcians “

[19:35] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) her eyes shoot to lib curious of his answer.

[19:37] Lib (liberace57): it saddens me but the city has to have complete confidence and a more detailed trial with a chance to hear from all concerned parties is needed. Physicians vote no

[19:38] William Carver: I would nod and then turned to Reds ” Commander, no pressure, your vote “

[19:40] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would stand from his seat and would look to the masses ” i say he put his head back into the law and learn from his mistakes” he looked to cleatus ” Cleatus i want your word, that he will in fact do such.” then back to the masses” he is a good man in my personal and professional opinion. if i fine out he is working with the legion and in fact working against the home stone i will impale himself, i give my word on that. Warriors vote he be reinstated as full magistrate.”

[19:40] ღ Syrenity Darling ღ (alaniflame26) she could not help herself but she applauded and claps loudly.

[19:43] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) listened as the votes were coming in. He remained calm and even. He nodded to each in kind as they made their statements. His eyes landed upon Reds when he was addressed, “You have my word.”His eyes then went to William.

[19:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) looked over Commander’s shoulders “An you’ll be held to them, you be surprise the measure of pain a builder can do on a human body if he put’s his mind to it..” he piped up and then sunk in his seat before william through a Ink well at him.

[19:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw): threw*

[19:44] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) put his hand to his shoulder and left it there.

[19:44] William Carver: ” The High Council of Svago has spoken, as such their word is final, Cleatus is absolved and returned to his duties as a Magistrate of Svago” I placed the seals on the desk ” Your Sear of Office Magistrate Cleatus ” William then looked out over the crowd ” In Svago, your High Council does not hide behind closed doors locked away from the people, they instead invite the people in so they can see the Council working through issues. ALL men are flawed, and here all can find mercy and forgiviness “

[19:45] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) looked to reds and nodded her head with a look of gratitude in her eyes then raised her brow at williams words.

[19:45] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) breathes out slowly, feeling the edges of tension in the room melt away at the edges at least for the moment. Her eyes close a moment in some silent thanks before they open again and focus on the Council at the other end of the room.

[19:46] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Exhales the breath she seemed to have been holding forever “Well done this hearing was” She was proud of the process in Svago and tapped her shoulder “I am glad this is all over, I need some food”

[19:47] Kaellaed Rhode: congratulations, Cleatus, Welcome back. There is much to do, but please, take this time to enjoy your reinstatement, it is well earned. You stood up for yourself and your homestone.

[19:48] Ashellia Thorne Ana’Bandit (ashellia): smiled to my friend and nodded to him regarding his reinstatement

[19:48] Lib (liberace57): am glad Cleatus is reinstated but would have rather had it done after a trial so there could be no second guessing

[19:49] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) takes a step forward, taking the seal in his hand, feeling the cold metal resting in his palm. He addresses the High Council, “I would like to take this opportunity to say one final set of words, if you would allow.” His seal resting in his palm delicately.

[19:50] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (lextonian.snowpaw) plops down in the chair as Cleatus wished to speak.

[19:50] William Carver: I would nod to Cleatus ” Go head you have earned a closing statement before we adjourn “

[19:50] Marco Alighieri (xxaimleexx) “congratulations, Cleatus, it was rough, welcome back,” he stood up from the chair to dispose of the tablet and parchments with notes, sketches, agenda.

[19:51] ღ Syrenity Darling ღ (alaniflame26) Congratulations Sir! I am so happy for you!” she calls out smiling.

[19:51] Skaenn: What joy is expressed is not his, He still understands little the South and their ways.

[19:52] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) turned and spotted Trentan and glared, anger welling up inside her as she turned her head away and put her nose in the air.

[19:54] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford) caught the glare coming his way and looks not only shocked but completely puzzled, a mixture of hurt coming in to steel blue eyes as he can not imagine what has brought this Lady’s ire. It was plain as day the emotions on his face and in his eyes.

[19:56] ℜøşєţţє Straaf (musiclover30) she stood and made her way to her companions side she stood her place as the other people were standing and she stood proud.. Remaining silent.

[19:56] ღ Syrenity Darling ღ (alaniflame26) She stood up to go back towards home. She looks for Leo but he was nowhere to be found. She hopes that he will talk to her later in the gardens. Sighs Excuses herself among everyone as she walks down the steps. ‘I wish you all well.” she smiles and leaves.

[19:57] Cleatus Straaf (scottybeamer) looked to the Council first, “I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to stand before you today to defend myself and my actions. I have made mistakes, and I assure you that I have learned from them. I now take the opportunity to address the people.” He turned, “Know this, a Magistrate has face death today, and by the mercy of the Council of our Home Stone, I have been absolved and proven to be innocent of Treason. We are held accountable for our actions. You have witnessed this” He turned back to William, “That will be all. I presume that we will be meetingin the coming days.” He nodded and stepped back.

[19:58] Faedra Venherth (surrendersaga) watched, it was her usual habit, relaxing slightly at the immediate concern of the event was winding down. Still, as she watched and listened with a cock of her head, there was a flow to it’s people, fish in an energy filled stream. Which fish would swim where was yet to be determined.

[19:59] Tjark (kirtanu) turned and silently left the room obviously in deep thought.

[20:00] William Carver: ” I look forward to it Cleatus, we are going to find this… Legion ” I stood and proclaimed ” This meeting stands adjourned, Councilors thank you for your time, Warriors, gratitude for your protection, Hail Svago! “

Kron & Latha have a baby

Category : Svago General Info

[11:38] Latha (elise.larimore) came down from the stairs, rubbing her back and grimacing. “Tal, Landis, Lady, Do you have everything you need?”

[11:41] Landis Aeon (landis.aeon) looks up to Latha , “Tal there. ” He lifts up the tankard. ” I am all set up ,” he says showing her the tankard of mead.

[11:41] Kron Tower (kronofar) came into the inn, through the crowded street, and saw his companion conversing with a few of the patrons ‘greetings Latha’ he said to her, his eye passing over her much more rounded form. It wasn’t just her belly that was well swollen from the child, but the rest of her had also taken on a softer, curvaceous form. He knew the birth was close ‘everything alright today?’ he asked

[11:42] Latha (elise.larimore) heard steps and turned to see her companion. “Oh, Kron. Tal, my back aches so badly today. For hours now.” Her lower back would slowly begin to seize up. It was kind of like the muscles inside were slowly twisting harder and harder until it became almost unbearable, and then it would slowly subside. “It just keeps throbbing and throbbing… then it kind of stops … and then it comes back again.”

[11:45] Kron Tower (kronofar) stepped up toward his companion, taking her by the elbow ‘perhaps you should rest for a bit’ he said, his forehead furrowed into a frown ‘did you see a physician yesterday, like I told you to?’ he asked

[11:47] Landis Aeon (landis.aeon) takes his last drink from the tankard and places it on the table and, feeling a slight buzz, he walks out into the square.

[11:47] Landis Aeon (landis.aeon): “Be safe.”

[11:49] Latha (elise.larimore): “No … well, I did talk to Lady Darcia, who asked my forgiveness.” Latha grimaced as she felt the pain shoot through her back again. “I told her I’d ask her if she could see to me since Lady Domino is traveling.” Then suddenly, there was an audible pop, like the sound of someone cracking his knuckles, and wetness began to spread on Latha’s skirts, puddling on the floor. “Kron!” She stumbled over. “Kron, I think it’s happening!”

[11:53] Kron Tower (kronofar) eyes widened, looking down as the woman’s skirt darkened with fluid that puddled around her feet on the floor of the inn ‘let’s get you upstairs’ he said ‘and I will send a slave for a physician’. He took her arm and guided her up to the stairs ‘can you walk up?’ he asked, ready to hoist her into his arms if she could not.

[11:54] Latha (elise.larimore): “I think I can…” Latha said through gritted teeth. She let him lead her up the stairs, glistening wetness trailing behind her.

[11:57] Kron Tower (kronofar) got his companion up the stairs and over toward the bed ‘Latha, take your skirts off and lay down, I will go and find a physician, harta now’ he said to her, heading over to the verandah to call for help. He’d somehow managed to get to 150 years old not having seen a live birth, he had a feeling that was about to change. He cupped his hands around his mouth and yelled down to the square…

[11:57] Kron Tower (kronofar) shouts: ‘physician, someone get a physician up to the inn’

[11:59] Latha (elise.larimore) began to peel off her wet skirts, her shirt waist. Though the cramping was much more intense, spreading all through her lower back, she managed to put on her nightgown, leaving her other clothing puddled on the floor.

[12:02] Kron Tower (kronofar) turned and headed back into the living quarters and over to the bed, where Latha had managed to remove her skirts and get into nightwear ‘ah, someone should be coming’ he said awkwardly

[12:02] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) She rushed inside with the aid of Landis and comes into the room. ‘Does someone need my assistance?’ she says as she notices Lady Latha in pain. ‘Tal Lady Latha. I am not sure if you remember me? I am Syndyl.” she turns to find the wash basin and washes her hands. ‘Tal Sir.”

[12:03] Kron Tower (kronofar) stepped back out of the way as the physicians arrived lickety split ‘she’s about to have a child’ he said, which was patently obvious

[12:04] Latha (elise.larimore) was pushing her heels into the bed. The pain was like having her insides twisted, pulled, and squeezed. When she fought it, the pain became worse. “Lady … Syndyl?” Latha managed to get about before she gave a sharp gasp.

[12:05] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she nods to Kron. Taking her wrist to measure her pulse. Than looks at her. ‘How many minutes apart are your contraction?” she asked. Then looks to see if there are more blankets. ‘Sir? I will need some towels, more blankets, bucket of water please?” she looks over Latha and smiles. ‘Relax and breathe for me. She takes one of the blankets and covers her bottom for modesty.

[12:08] Latha (elise.larimore): “Breathe for you? BREATHE FOR YOU?” Latha screamed. Of course she was breathing! Another spasm shot through her back. “Contractions? I don’t know … ” she moaned. ” …. my back, my back, it feels like I am being stabbed over and over.”

[12:10] Kron Tower (kronofar) stood, somewhat stuck, watching the writhing of his companion and hearing the pain in her voice as she yelled and groaned ‘water?’ he said, furrowing his brow toward the physician ‘are you thirsty?’. Kron had no idea what was going on, he couldn’t imagine what the physician wanted all those things for

[12:11] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she knew Latha was excited as most any woman would be in labor. ‘The breathing will help with the pain. I need to check to see how far along you are Latha.’ she says as she lifts her bottom part of her gown up and slips on some gloves from her medicine bag. Checking her cervix she ascertains she is 8 centimeters. Her underthings were wet as she gently slips them off. ‘The baby will be here soon.” she says as she moves to take out some of her sterilized utensils. Turns to Kron. ‘No the water is to keep things clean. The blanket for the babe and the towels for the blood.’ she says quickly.

[12:12] Kron Tower (kronofar) shook his head, but turned and went over to the cupboard to pull out the small wraps and furs Latha had prepared for the pending birth. ‘ONION’ he yelled down the stairs ‘bring water’

[12:13] Latha (elise.larimore): “It feels like someone has taken hold of my insides and is wringing them out like a wet dishrag!” Latha tried to breathe, but was finding it difficult, and found herself panting instead. “Soon, Lady Syndyl?” she asked. She was trying to speak, but nothing was coming out right. “Kron! Kron!”

[12:16] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she nods as she saw Kron doing what he needs to. ‘Thank you Sir.” she then thanks Onion for the towels and dips one into the bucket of water as she wipes her face ‘Yes I need to check again your cervix.’ she slips her fingers into her and then determines. ‘You are now 9 centimeters The babe will be here soon. You are dilating fast.” she rushes to move the things for the babe to the side and moves to the front of the bed,

[12:17] Kron Tower (kronofar) had handed over the things, including the bucket of water onion had brought up. As Latha was calling his name he came back to the side of the bed, moving past the physician who was now at the rear ‘what is it?

[12:17] Kron Tower (kronofar): he said to her

[12:21] Latha (elise.larimore) reached out trying to grab his hand, which she would squeeze so tightly he’d have though she was trying to choke the life out of him. “Stay! Just stay! Nine centimeters? What is this, what do you mean Lady Syndyl?” Latha held on to Kron’s hand as if holding on for dear life. She dug her heels into the bed more deeply. “What do I do now? She was frantic1

[12:22] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she wipes her hands down. Then lifts the blanket as she cups her hands into a v-shape. ‘Lady Latha. Please prepare to give birth. The baby will come soon. When you feel the contractions push for me. When I wish for you to stop, rest and than push again when the contractions come once more.” she says looking beneath the blanket. Slips her fingers in one last time and she was now 10 centimeters. ‘I will need another Physician here since they have not given me the keys yet Lady Latha.’ turns to the slave to get one from downstairs if any

[12:23] Kron Tower (kronofar) looked even more puzzled ‘why do you need keys to open her legs?’ he asked crudely, grimacing as Latha’s tiny hand squeezed his like a vice ‘surely the babe will come regardless’

[12:23] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) I do not.” she smiles. But waits for the babe to come.

[12:25] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) The centimeters tells me how far wide your womb is for the baby to be birthed. The ten centimeters is the widest it goes and so you are ready Lady Latha. Please push for me when you feel a contraction.”

[12:28] Latha (elise.larimore): “Push?” Latha managed to get out. She struggled trying to do what the physician told her, she could not figure out how to do it effectively. All she knew was that her back was strobing painfully, and each flash of pain came quicker and quicker. “I don’t know how!” And she never released her grip on Kron’s hand. “I don’t think … ” she sputtered … ” … no time for someone else … ” It felt like she needed to bear down and her legs spread a little wider as her heels pushed harder into the bed. “Wait! Wait! I have to go use a chamber pot!”

[12:28] LadyDarcia as the slave came down jumped up and ran to the stairs, my breathing quick, looked toward Latha and offered a smile, turned to Kron ”Tal Sir” then moved to the other Woman ”Tal Lady the slave said You needed help?”

[12:29] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire): She hears the door open and the slave returns with Darcia. She turns and smiles. ‘Are you a Physician?’ she asks. ‘I am Lady Syndyl. I used to be here in Svago and have not spoke to the Chief Physician yet. I am a Physician and yes please. She is ready to give birth. Please assist me and with the Birth Certificate form as well since I do not have one.”

[12:31] Kron Tower (kronofar) narrowed his eyes toward Darcia, and debated in a few ehn whether to toss her out on her ear, or let her assist the physician attending to the birth. He chose to bite his tongue, for once, and let her help ‘it won’t be long now Latha’ he said, though he was only following the lead of the woman who said she was ready

[12:31] Latha (elise.larimore) began to scramble to try to get off the bed to get to the chamber pot and squat, since the physician didn’t tell her what to do.

[12:32] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) ‘Lady Latha. The birth will come naturally and you are doing fine Rest, until you feel the next contraction. Then push please. I am ready. Do not squat Lady Latha. You will harm yourself. Stay on the bed.”

[12:33] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) ‘You may do it on the bed and we shall clean you up. Lady can you clean her as she needs to go.” she says to her.

[12:33] LadyDarcia drew a breath and smiled ‘Tal and Welcome to Svago Lady Syndyl, Lady Darcia apprentice Physician” looked at Latha again before pulling a scroll out, looked at Kron and saw the narrowed eyes and quickly turning away, bit my lip under the veil yet as Latha went to move ”Latha stay there, please its safer” echoed the Womans words, there was concern in my voice

[12:34] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) Well met Lady Darcia.” she smiles and then looks under the blanket.

[12:34] Latha (elise.larimore): .nw still felt like she needed the chamber pot. “You … you don’t undertand … I have to go, now!” And she struggled to get off the bed once again, finally letting go of Kron’s hand.

[12:35] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) Lady Darcia please get the chamber pot. Latha please stay still.’ she turns to Darcia as this was getting messy.

[12:38] LadyDarcia quickly ran around the others side and bobbed down on my knees ”excuse me Sir” reached for the pot then rose to my feet moving back, looked at the bed and cringed a little, this was what put me off having children the pain and mess ”Latha Your doing amazing”

[12:38] Kron Tower (kronofar) put a hand on her shoulder and held her on the bed ‘stay there’ he said, ‘listen to the women here, they know what they are doing’ With that, he stepped back out of the way and moved around behind the bed, to give the women the space to work with her

[12:41] Latha (elise.larimore) felt like her bowels were going to move every time she pushed, until she realized it was the baby … ! The baby was moving down and out! There was a burning, stinging sensation, and Latha gritted her teeth, but she didn’t try to get up from the bed again. “Yes….” she stammered … to her companion, to Lady Syndel, to Lady Darcia …

[12:42] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) Latha. Once you are done and you feel the contraction please push for me. Your body tells me the babe wishes to come out.” she says as she looks to Darcia. ‘Yes thats it. I can see the head. Rest. than push again once the contraction comes.”

[12:42] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) The contraction does feel like you need to move your bowels.’ chuckles as she cups her hands waiting for the babe to arrive.

[12:43] LadyDarcia took up a towel ready for the babe, looked and saw it was near ”Kron come close if You wish to see Your child born” spoke softly over my shoulder at Him

[12:44] Kron Tower (kronofar) just stands back, silent now, watching the final moments play out as his child makes it’s way into the world. ‘It best be a boy’ he muttered, as he stepped up just a slight shuffle toward the bed.

[12:46] Latha (elise.larimore) felt the most intense, primal instinct to push, so intense that she couldn’t help but push. That baby was coming out … and now!

[12:47] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she felt her push and she saw the shoulders. ‘One moment Latha.” she maneuvers the shoulders as he was turned and then looks up. ‘Push Latha. Push.’ she says as she holds the babe’s head.

[12:48] LadyDarcia stood with the towel in my hands, could feel Kron close behind me, looked over my shoulder and smiled at Him though unsure if the smile would return, He His words about Him wanting a boy and chuckled a little, bent down ready to take the baby as soon as it was born

[12:48] Kron Tower (kronofar) watched as his companion’s vagina, rarely seen in the light of day, stretched out beyond belief until the head of his child, wet with dark hair, finally made it’s way out of her body. He could hardly believe what he was witnessing.

[12:51] Latha (elise.larimore) continued to push, could feel something moving out of her. With every contraction and push, something was inching further and further down! “Is that it? Is it … ” Then she felt again the overwhelming urge to push.

[12:53] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) “You are doing great Latha. She watches as the baby slides out of her womb and she catches her. Cradles the baby girl in her arms. As she cups her right hand and clears any debris in her mouth, Than uses the bulb to suck out the mucous from her nose. ‘Congratulations Kron and Latha. It is a girl!” she passes the babe to Darcia to clean and measure the baby.

[12:55] LadyDarcia looked as the baby came into the World and gasped, holding back a chuckle ”its a girl Latha, a daughter” looks back at Kron ”Congratulations Sir You have a beautiful Daughter, does She have a name yet?” takes the baby in my arms and gazes down at Her, making sure Her air ways were clear ”ten fingers ten toes” then suddenly the baby let out a scream, the sound so beautiful

[12:55] Latha (elise.larimore) laid back in the bed, sweat trickling from her brow. She was elated! “I want to see, Kron… come look!” But then a spasm of fear hit her. It wasn’t a boy. Would he still be pleased? “Kron … ” she plead.

[12:57] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) She thought she heard the whimper in Latha’s voice. But she starts to take the umbiblical cord out and clamps each side. ‘Kron do you wish to do the honor of cutting the cord?” she asks. Hands him a small sterilized blade.

[12:59] Kron Tower (kronofar) watches as the tiny red mewling urt-looking creature emerged from her body, and the physicians did what they did, wiping the muck from the wrinkled skin, stepping up to take a look with not a small amount of interest ‘a girl’ he said, looking toward Latha, who seemed to be a combination of exhausted and high ‘you gave me a daughter’. Kron’s own voice was low, and though he was disappointed, that was not the tone that would be heard. Looking at this strange creature, who was now beginning to bellow and look somewhat more human as the air filled her lungs. He looked at the physician like she was going mad as she handed him a blade to sever the child from his mother’s womb ‘ah, you do it’ he said, waiting for them to hand the child to his companion ‘give her the babe Darcia’

[13:02] LadyDarcia moved towards Latha after the cord was cut and laid the baby on the bed near Her, looked at Latha and could see the concern in Her face at the fact the babe was a girl, measured the babes head and then the length of Her, ”she is a good length i am sure she will have Her fathers height” chuckled a little ”then at Krons words wrapped the baby back up and passed Her to Latha and whispered ”Congratulations Latha You did amazing” smiled warmly though Krons tone hung in the air and gave Him a look ”its the Father that controls the sex, Sir She is beautiful, like Her Mother”

[13:03] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she nods as she cuts the cord and then places the scalpel down. She notices he was not happy but she kept professional as she places the cord in the tub. Then gently pushes down Latha’s belly to push out the placenta. Places the placenta into the bucket and wipes her gloved hands as she uses some numbing salve to her vagina so she could sew the small tear. ‘Latha. Enjoy your child while I stitch you up.” she says as she moves the needle and gut thread close to her.

[13:04] Kron Tower (kronofar) stood beside his companion as the babe was placed next to her ‘no’ he said to Syndyl, holding a hand to stop her ‘no stitches’. Kron didn’t really know what he was saying, but he surely wasn’t letting that woman get anywhere near his companion’s crotch with a needle and thread

[13:07] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) She was about to thread the tear and then looks up. ‘She will have a scar Kron. I will make sure it does not get infected.” she did not like that Latha’s vagina’s skin will be hung like that. But she cleaned her up very well and was glad it was a small tear. ‘Very well.” she said as she then made a small cloth for her menses. ‘Kron. She needs to heal. No sex for at least 1 month. You do need to follow up in 2 weeks with a Physician.”

[13:07] Latha (elise.larimore) was a little alarmed when Syndyl offered Kron the knife, a little relieved when he declined. And though he didn’t seem elated, he didn’t seem disappointed, either. As the baby was placed next to her, she began feeling mild cramps … and the need to push. So push she did and the placenta slid out in one red, viscous, lump. “Please … get that away.” She scooped the baby in her arms, but had barely gotten to look at her before Syndyl started to get the needle and gut. “No!” she shouted, right about the time Kron stopped her. “What he said,” she murmured. “Kron, have you decided what to call her?”

[13:11] Kron Tower (kronofar) chuckled ‘I have slaves, physician’ he said, ‘there is no need to worry yourself’. Kron looked down at his companion with the child beside her. Surprisingly, the babe had stopped crying just from being swaddled. He was unsure regarding the name, they had discussed it, but he had honestly thought the child would be a boy ‘how about we worry about that later’ he said

[13:13] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she removes her gloves as she tosses them into the bucket. Then piles up the soiled towels. Washes her hands once more. Than removes the dirty blanket from Latha and nods to the npc slave to clean the sheets quickly beneath her. ‘Darcia perhaps you can help her to dress. Latha. I am going to pass you the scroll and you can use this for when you are ready to register her with the scribes.” she says as she starts to seal the scroll.

[13:15] Latha (elise.larimore): “I don’t want to get dressed,” that said with a smile as she stroked the little girl’s cheek with a finger tip. “I just want to stay here in my gown, in my bed, and gaze at her little face. Kron, would you lie with me? Maybe we can just call her ‘Baby’ for now.”

[13:16] Kron Tower (kronofar) reached out to take whatever the woman was offering; Latha was not in any position to be dealing with whatever it was; probably an invoice for services ‘thank you for your help physician’ he said, ‘and to you Darcia’. Kron heard Latha call for him and he looked uncertain for an ehn, before he moved around and awkwardly sat on the bed next to her and the child, ‘I am here’ he said

[13:17] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she smiles to the both of them. Than nods to the npc slaves to take the placenta and cord for Jamison to use in his herb making things. ‘I wish you both well. Thank you Lady Darcia for coming.’ she smiles as she moves to the door.

[13:17] LadyDarcia nods to Syndyl and moves around the bed but at Lathas words stepped back and nodded ”as You wish Lady Latha, You will need to rest as much as possible and no work at all” looked at Kron and nodded ”Thank You Sir for allowing me to help, please make sure She rests, She need to more so because of the tear”

[13:19] LadyDarcia smiles as Kron goes and sits with Latha and steps back again ”i will call in later and check on You, if allowed?” knowing there was tension still hanging around my neck like a noose

[13:20] Latha (elise.larimore) looked up at Kron and grinned as Syndyl left the room. She would have thanked her, but the physician was gone in a flash. “You know, on the farm, the women would squat and have a baby in the fields, then be working the next ahn. I’m a little tired, though.” She really had no intention of staying in bed, unless he told her too. “Thank you for coming, Lady Darcia,” she murmured. But she looked to Kron to see if he would give Darcia permission to visit again.

[13:20] Syndyl Cretusfyr (syndilfire) she quietly leaves and goes down the steps.

[13:21] Kron Tower (kronofar) turns to look at Darcia ‘I will not argue with you at this time’ he said ‘we will talk at another point, I do not trust a woman who would strip the face of another’

[13:23] LadyDarcia drew a breath and nodded ”i will wait to hear from You Sir and apologize wholeheartedly for what happened and will do anything to earn forgiveness” left the words hanging in the air as i moved towards the steps ”i will be back later Latha, Congratulations once more”

[13:26] Latha (elise.larimore) nodded at Darcia, then her eyes fell to the wee babe again, marveling at how tiny she was, how perfect she was, with just the tiniest bit of dark hair on her head. “I wonder if she’ll have your temper, Kron,” she teased. “I’m sure you will teach her well, though,” she amended. Then more quietly, “I am sorry I didn’t bear you a boy. I know that you wanted one.”

[13:30] Kron Tower (kronofar) waited until Darcia was out of the room before he reached out to touch the babe’s puffy cheek ‘you know I never know about Zaida, this was kept from me by my old companion Vivina’. Kron’s touch was ever so light, the skin of the babe’s face as soft as velvet ‘you did good Latha’

[13:32] Latha (elise.larimore) practically beamed at him when he praised her, gazed fondly at him as he touched Baby’s soft cheek. “Zaida … that was unfair of Vivina not to tell you.” She thought about what it would have been like, to miss all those years, all those firsts … first word, first step …

[13:34] Kron Tower (kronofar) watched as the babe began to stir after her small nap ‘I think she’s hungry Latha’ he said, watching as the child’s tiny mouth began to open at the touch of his finger on her check ‘you should feed her’

[13:40] Latha (elise.larimore) nodded. With her free hand, she undid the fastenings of her nightgown, revealing breasts that were pleasantly larger and full of milk. Laying Baby across her tummy, Latha cradled the child’s head and brought her lips to Latha’s nipple. At first, baby seemed as though she didn’t know what to do, but after a little encouragement, she latched on and began to suck. “That’s … amazing isn’t it?”

The “Talk”

Category : Svago General Info

[13:06] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) GWYNN ARE YOU HERE? IT’S MAMMA AND AUNTIE ROSA

[13:07] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) gasped and covered herself. Her face went bright red, making sure the gown is covering her. “YES I AM UPSTAIRS” she replied

13:07] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) looks around “well at least they got rid of that dirty carpet of yours” hears Sara yell and pokes at her ears “Holy moly woman, just made me deaf!!! Maybe I don;t have to hear William drone on tonight, might thank you later”

13:07] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) come on Rosa, and if I find any men up there, ooh is she in trouble

[13:09] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) sniffs, looking around “well I like what you’ve done with the place! Dressing in front of an open window?

13:09] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) frowned and groaned, but then moved closer to hug her mother. “I have missed you.” she sighed, “Tal Auntie Rosa.” she greeted.

13:10] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) just looks at Sara, bad enough she never let her meet her niece now she can’t even introsuce, nudges her sister out of the way “Tal Niece, I am Lady Rosa, of which I am sure has said nothing but horrible things about me” nods

13:10] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) hugs Gwynn tightly, lifting the smaller woman off of her feet

[13:10] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) looks at Sara “since when did you hug someone?”

[13:11] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) if you had given me a moment, i might have, but I did say you were with me downstairs, Rosa, Don’t start a quarrel, not when Gwynn must be so nervous now

13:12] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) giggled as she was lifted from the floor. “Mother has only ever said the kindest of words about you, or nothing at all.” Not really lying, but a half truth was less painful. “Niall has an order of protection over me until our companionship contract takes affect today.” she said, wringing her hands.

13:13] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) moves to the side and lets them do their thing “of course” she said and makes a note “I see she inherited Thrice’s height” nods a bit and looks around.

[13:15] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) sputters “what nonsense and how dare they. Uncle Rec is the male head of our family, and you were under his protection. Niall needs a size 0 kick in the pants,” She stops her rant to stare at Rosa “Gwynn os the perfect height..she is a rare, delicate flower! Have they made you full scribe yet, Gwynn?”

[13:16] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded pointing around to the rather empty space. “I had my belongings sent to Niall’s house. I haven’t been to his home yet, But I do know he has a slave…for…what ever he is using her for. He seems to rave about her cooking skills.” she huffed, sticking her nose in the air and crossing her arms over her chest. “Honestly, I do not understand the appeal these beasts have over men.” Her head shook further, “I had my first class with Lady Nikki this week, but it will be soon. I’ve watched as many contracts as I can this week and it does seem simple enough”

[13:17] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) chuckles hearing that “well what slaves use men for? you might not want to know the details there, just make sure you pickup a hobby, like sewing, crochet, reading a ton of books, something like that to pass the time” she nods a bit

[13:18] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) only simple people write simple contracts, which is why I wished i could have written yours. Your father and I are very much concerned that your interests are protected

[13:18] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes): or did I mean what men use slaves for? one of those two

[13:19] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded, “He seemed more worried I might damage his property than anything else in the contract. What’s mine is mine, what is his is his. He will only enslave me if I should behave as a slave, which I shall never do, so I believe we should be fine.”

[13:20] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) hmmm I would have changed that clause that any punishment collars expire with the contract

[13:20] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded, a scowl on her face. “I’m sure we can have that amended.” she noted, but hadn’t thought of that.

[13:20] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen): and he will be earning considerably more than you can, AND children could have been negotiated

[13:22] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded, “He believes children should have equal access to their mother. I do not think children will become an issue. We’ll only be together for one year and …well, I’m frankly wondering if he can even reproduce. Nothings happened to me over weeks of us courting, you know.”

[13:24] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) coughs a bit hearing her statement and adjusts her gloves a bit just listening and all that.

[13:24] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) holds up a palm “STOP. Companionships are meant to be for a lifetime. They are renewed annually because they are important, not because its expected they will expire like fresh meat left out in the sun. And he better not have been trying to reproduce while you were courting! Which brings me up to another issue. Have you had noble wine?

[13:25] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) would mouth the words ‘just a year’ but veils impede these things so just looks back at Sara and her daughter there like some tennis match.

[13:27] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) shook her head, “Just red wine from the winery.” she said, “What is this…noble wine?” she asked. “I do not think Niall likes me to drink. Given how excessively his mother tips her glass, if you know what I mean.” she nodded with a judgmental expression. “He has done better to avoid eye contact with me, but frankly I’m shocked with all the times he’s stared at me nothing at all happened. You know Denise, from Ar? She said a million times, if she said it once, her husband only had to look at her for her to conceive. I rather thought it made the whole process very convenient.”
[13:28] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) just shakes her head, scribes teaching each other about the body, this was amusing “oh yes, that’s exactly how it worked, I think Thrice sailed within 9847146 pasangs of Sara and she conceived you!”

[13:32] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) frowned, clearly torn on which way to go with this conversation now “noble wine is a concoction the greens distribute, that prevents women from conceiving,. and there is a wine that “releases” you to conceive. That school should have given you some before you made the voyage home, and i will certainly write them a strongly worded letter.” She slides her eyes ove to Rosa, and blinks a few times “Don’t confuse the poor child more than she already is. I am torn…if she keeps her dignity, she will not allow him to touch–uhm,look at her but then I do want grandchildren. Just so they don’t look like Niall or his crazy family.” SHe looks at Rosa again to see if she has any good advice “but then Nikki did ask in a letter if she could be in on this part”

[13:35] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded again. “No, they did offer something like that, but I went shopping instead that afternoon. I wanted to make sure I got the latest veil from the seamstress. She does fine work.”

[13:36] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) shrugs “It’s the releaser wine when starting a family. figured those details would have been taken care of for tonight” she added, was not sure what advice she wanted, hearing the plan was for Nikki to review these things, she did not say much else.

[13:39] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) moves closer to Gwynn again, fussing with the girls hair, tucking some strands back, pulling some forward. adjusting the drape of her hood. She is about to do the finger-lick fix to Gwynn’s eyebrows, again, when she nods “i think anybody would agree that shopping was the better use of time. And you do look lovely, doesn’t she, Rosa? I never thought this day would come, my baby, getting a companion.” Sara starts to sniffle, but manages to ask “what do you think will happen tonight, when you are alone with Niall?”
[13:41] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) watches and grins behind her thick veils “yes she looks lovely” she states pleasantly.

[13:41] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) watched her mother’s finger like a hawk, not wanting that spit run along her eyebrow again, but not wanting to refuse her mother. “Tonight? I move in with him. I expect he will go back to work as Head of Caste, and I will come here for a time, working on the Post, then we shall go to his house and sleep. That’s what people do at night, Mother, they sleep. I do not plan to let him keep me awake all night with idle chit chat when I have this edition of the post to finish.”
[13:44] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) Sara’s sniffles turn to full-out bawling, now “Yes yes that’s right, Gwynn, that’s all that should happen. If he is a gentleman that is. Make sure the slave cleans everything and keeps at it until you fall asleep. I trust you have your own room in his house and can lock the door?”

[13:44] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) chuckles lightly, now thinking she sounds like a mini Sara “oh yes, the paper always comes first, still trying to figure out how Sara had time to have you, must have been a short gossip day in there somewhere” she waves her hand, thinking that must have been the reason.

[13:49] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) stuck her nose in the air and crossed her arms over her chest again. “Oh she will be busy. I cannot keep all 7 trunks of gowns, Niall feels that is too many and I will need to put some in storage for safe keeping. Imagine if I had sent over all my chests of gowns? What then?” she huffed, “His slave’s name is feather and she will have enough to do with laundry and cooking alone to keep her awake long into the night. You know I asked him if I was to have my own room and he told me not to worry, if that was needed, he would contact the builders. I am guessing I will sleep on his bed and he will have a fur to lay on or something.”

[13:53] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) voice starts to get shrill “what do you mean, he’d have to contact the builders? What sort of shack is he moving you into. The heads of caste have always had large houses set aside for their use. What is Niall trying to pull! Ohhh I wish your father could be here, he’d straighten that young man out right away. I suppose he has his parents manners, or lack thereof. You can always resume living here, or in the Inn. Perhaps that would be better anyway, Since it sounds like he doesn’t intend on giving you any money, maybe you better have some emergency coin. Uhm….Rosa, give Gwynn some emergency coin”

[13:56] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) shrugged as he mother’s voice went shrill. “Mother, this is how his parents sleep. I would imagine he thinks it is normal. I shall educate him on the proper ways to keep a companion in his home. His mother is pregnant, did you know?” she asked her mother. “His father must make a great deal of eye contact with her. “

[13:56] Rσʂα Mσɱɱα Dαɯҽʂ (rosalynne.dawes) just looks at her sister “I am sure she is fine, seems you two need some time, I’ll go check into the inn for a few and see if I can pry Latha from Kron for a few minutes, I wish you both well and best of luck for tonight!”

[13:57] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): As usual, Nikki walks in her slave right on her heels and calls out “Lady G are you here?” she can hear mumbles from up the stairs and looks at Jade curiously

[13:58] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) called down, “Yes, Lady Nikki. I am upstairs. My mother has come to visit. Please, come join us.”

[13:58] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) Nikki has been pregnant since she was born. She has had over 300 children, you know and the quality just keeps going down with the quanity

[13:58] Jαdε (klonky) follows in behind her Mistress, her eyes look to the ceiling and her head tilts hearing voices upstairs.

[14:00] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Huffs and puffs a she makes her way up the stairs and stares at Sara for a few moments before bursting out in a true smile and reaches out to hug her “Tal Sara, dont get uses to this, its only because I am protected by my belly” and glances to G “Tal Lady”

[14:02] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) endures the hug, with only slight noticeable discomfort “that must be hormones gone wild, Nikki. It is pleasant to see your face, and that of…of…jenny! yes thats right, jenny

[14:03] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) smiled, her eyes showing such above the veil. She went rather wide eyed at the thought of 300 children. “Tal Lady Nikki.” she replied, then looked to Jade, “Tal Pearl.” she canted her head, still trying to figure out how in the world one would have time to do anything besides have babies with 300 of them! Her head shook, “It’s not Jenny, Mother. It’s Pearl.” she told her, then smiled to Jade as though she did the poor girl a favor.

[14:04] Jαdε (klonky) trails behind her Mistress, holds her arms out ready to catch the lady if she falls. Once at the top she takes to her knees “Tal Mistresses” she makes no response to the Jenny and Pearl names she was used to the Ladies not remembering her name. But she did raise an eyebrow when Mistress G corrected Mistress Sara, bites her lip so she doesn’t chuckle.
[14:06] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) harumphs at being corrected, but instead carries on as they were before “what kind of a home does your son have for my Gwynn that only has 2 rooms in it”

[14:06] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): glancing to jade she shrugs a little “call her what you want, did you know I brought her to the Hair lady last night and tried to sell her hair to her, you know to cover the companionship expenses. I will have you know that the lady Sissa told me she only buys hair of the Free” Nikkis eyes move to Saras tied up hair “hmmm” is all she says and laughs hearing Sara “she is moving to the head of caste housing, something that surely you walked by a few times with envy in your eyes”

[14:10] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) watched the two speak to one another. “I’m sure, Niall has a lovely home. He did tell me that builders could add a wall, should he feel we need separate bedrooms.” she interjected, trying to keep the peace. “He will already be building on for my gowns as it is, and I do not mind sharing a room with him. I’m sure we could put up a curtain or something until he can give me my own room. We can make due.”

[14:12] Jαdε (klonky) folded her own hair away from her Mistress, seeing her gaze move to Mistress Sara’s she relaxed some.

[14:14] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) a head of caste’s work is never done, I should assume he will sleep in his office. We have been talking about what Gwynn can expect as a companioned lady” Sara starts to cry again, and again begins arranging and rearranging Gwynn’s clothes and hair
[14:17] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki perks an eyebrow and looks at jade “you made sure there was wine on the roof right? Ladys lets go one floor up and have a seat, I will be happy to tell you what is expected by the Carvers and the best way to handle it” Her eyes move to Sara and she does smile a bit as the usually hard as steel Sara seems to melt a little on knowing her daughter would be companioned
[14:18] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) half swats at her mother as she begins to fuss over her. “I am sure it will be fine. He’s been much better about not making eye contact with me. I do think he intends to be patient with me, and his slave will do the cooking and cleaning. This should leave me with plenty of time to read and study and work on articles.” She looks to Jade, then to the stairs. “Ah, yes, Let’s do so.” she smiled and would lead the way. “I imagine as much as we both work, we’ll hardly even see one another.”

[14:18] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) fine, we can go to the roof and hear what the Carvers expect. I am sure it is less than the Threefolds expect

[14:19] Jαdε (klonky) nods “yes my Mistress” she runs up ahead and prepares two glasses of wine and a glass of water

[14:22] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki has to hoist her leg on top of the other one, not a graceful move when it looked like she had swallowed a melon.. whole” and turns to the Ladys and then looks right at Gwen “the good news for you is that Niall already has a slave, so that will make things easier in the long run. However, as we all know, the reason you are getting companioned is to further the Carver lineage, for goodness sakes I cannot bear this alone”

[14:25] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded, “The She-Urt did assure us that the Priest Kings will bless us with many sons.” she replied, thinking how many can she have in one year’s time? One! “I am sure, if Niall can reproduce, we will make eye contact many times. He did say,” she whispered, leaning forward, “Nothing would happen unless he’s naked.” she blushed profusely. “I am quite certain I will ensure his slave has his clothing laundered and prepared well in advance.”

[14:29] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) has regained some composure as she finds a seat, even managing to smirk when nikki has to climb into hers. Sara puts a cupped hand to her ear, as lif listening for the chair to creak and break under Nikki’s weight. She was about to coment on her feet not touching the floor until she realized her own were dangling as well. “that is good advice about the clothes and the slave. HOWEVER the Threefolds and Inkpens are more interested in less–shall we say–selfish? ambitions, and that is to strengthen the caste . We don’t want to take in too many greens or whatever. And you keep your clothes on, young lady, no matter how many articles niall takes off!”

[14:30] Jαdε (klonky) moves to her Mistress’ feet and holds up the tray “water my Mistress?”
[14:32] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Taking the water she motions jade on as she begins “Sara, lets get her ready for tonight, and we can worry about the fine details of the other matters later.” she shifts in her chair again a bit awkwardly “so tonight, you will be expected to lay next to him in the same bed, he will be naked, if you are lucky he will let you keep your clothes on, or at least most of them” she glances over to Sara encouraging her to jump in at anytime

[14:35] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) smirks and blushes. “You can’t be serious.” she laughs. “Stop, stop teasing so.” she holds her belly and laughs. “We have no need to discuss naked bodies, surely.” she gasps and leans back in her chair.
[14:37] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) remember you are a high caste woman! I was told men expect you to lay there rigid and frozen, and denounce the whole animalistic mating ritual. Others will not abide by that, or so I am told. I suggest a lot of wine for both of you. And under no circumstances allow that flighty slave of his to be around later.” she glares at Jade as if this were all her fault, somehow
[14:38] Jαdε (klonky) stands and moves inbetween Mistress G and Mistress Sara, trembles as she kneels seeing Mistress Sara’s look, quickly holds the tray high “wine Mistresses?”

[14:39] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) plucks the goblet of wine from the tray, giving it a little bump as she did. Maybe the other prepared goblet will topple and spill on the girls head
[14:42] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): She looks between the two of them “Personally I have perfected something that I will pass onto you, you will need to practice before tonight though as it takes an art to master.” Nikki sips at her wine and looks at Sara “you know this is so much easier with physician children who understand the function of basic anatomy” Her tone one of snootiness on the intelligence of the physicians on these worldly things “Now lady G, I want you to close your eyes, dont squint them shut, you need to make it look like you are tasting a sweet pastry and liking the taste.. this has nothing to do with reality of course, in reality you are shutting out that which is about to happen but try it with me” and Nikki leans back her big old belly protruding and gets a who I love baked good look on her face as she closes her eyes

[14:45] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) reached and snatched up the glass of wine from the tray. It was already to her lips before a drop could be spilled. Once the drink is gone from the glass she sets it back on the tray and closes her eyes. A deep breath inhaled through her nose, pulling her veil in a bit then blown out slowly, making the veil balloon. Her eyes closed and she tried to imagine a nice tasting chocolate treat, but instead she starts to giggle, opening one eye and peeking at her mother. “I can fake sleeping just fine, if that’s what helps. I can even pretend to snore.” she starts to gruffly inhale and exhale, making snoring sounds and her body going limp in the chair.

[14:48] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) begins to titter a little, perhaps she is more nervous than Gwynn is. “its not sleep you are imitating, Gwynn, it is pleasure. Which is one way, but I think you should just imagine myself and your father in the room, watching over you, keeping you safe. And remember your sacrifice is for the greater good. And, as Nikki says, you can try to act like you enjoy laying there.

[14:49] Jαdε (klonky) feels the tray bang her on the head, the knocking of the tray and the removal of the glass making it flip up. She remains as quiet as possible as she stands rubbing her head while returning the tray then back to her Mistress’ feet. Her eyes now focused on the Ladies pretending to .. do what, Master Niall wasn’t ugly she thought.

[14:53] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki looks at Sara “you and thrice watching her, oooh thats gonna help” she lets out a laugh “now the next part is a little more difficult. while you are laying there with your eyes close, you will do what I call an internal chant. It is very important that you do not allow your lips to move or that you make any noise during this part, noises can be misconstrued and your goal is to get this over with as fast as you can. so what you chant in your mind is six simple words.. Let this be over with soon” she pauses there “now watch” and again Nikki leans back in her chair with the bakery look on her face as her eyes closed and with out moving her lips begins the silent chant over and over and over

[14:56] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) wiggled her glass at Jade. “Pearl! More wine.” she huffed, then watched the two women. Her face went bright red. “How am I supposed to get pregnant if my eyes are closed?” she asked, “The sooner I get pregnant, the sooner he’ll stop staring at me.” she grumbled. “If we lay there, in his bed, and he’s naked, why waste the good opportunity to have eye contact? It’s not like he’s going to touch me or anything. Good grief. With this advice I’m never having any children.”

[15:01] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) “you watch that tone, young lady!” sara swiftly admonishes her daughter, but with no trace of anger. “Nikki has delivered close to 400 children, so her technique must work, but now I am worried that –well, when WIlliam gives one of those long winded speeches, most of us are closing our eyes and chanting to ourselves “let this be over soon” I hope no one things we are all having marital discourse! Shocking thought. Don’t worry, I;ll tell Niall to imagine me and pappa in the room, too. THat should keep him on the straight and narrow. And if –uhm–stares–too much you can always punch him in the–uhm, eye. I would try to pass that off as an accident, Gwynn”

[15:01] Jαdε (klonky) sees the glass wiggle and the call for more wine, stands grabs a bottle of wine and moves to Mistress G. Fills the glass and moves back to her Mistress’ feet.
[15:06] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki sips at her water and stares at Sara blankly “you know Sara, you and I need to synch up on this, this will only be my 20th child” Her eyes move back to G “oh he will touch you alright, and it wont be with a look, you need to get prepared to have you body touched in a number of ways by this man” she kicks out her foot at jade “you will tell her what to expect and make it appropriate for a free womens ears”

[15:07] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) nodded impatiently as the glass was filled, then smiled. “Thank you Pebbles.” she said with a lisp, then sipped at the glass of wine. Her hand waived in the air toward her mother. “I mean no disrespect.” she huffed, “My apologies mother, Lady Nikki. I do not wish to seem unappreciative of your advisement.” She leaned forward. “I shall refuse to remove any garments. That is just an absurd thought to have me naked in this entire process. It makes no sense. If he needs to be naked, which I still can’t figure out why in the world that part is even necessary, then so be it. I’ll be looking at his eyes, not his flesh.” Her head canted to Lady Nikki, “He will?” she went pale. “Why would he want to do that?” she gasped, horrified at the mere thought.

[15:14] Jαdε (klonky) lets out an “aii!” when the slipper heads her way. She opens her mouth about to spill all the juicy details her eyes wide with excitement at the thought, until she hears it should be appropriate. Slumps and closes her mouth while she thinks. Finally, she sits back up cautiously, “he will touch you up under your skirt and over the top of your dress” she swallows “he will touch you with ..” she pauses and looks at her Mistress then Mistress Sara, she turns back to Mistress G “with whats in his pants” sits back and takes a deep breath thinking that was pretty well explained but then adds quickly “if you close your eyes you won’t see” thinking that would enable her not to have to explain exactly what would be coming at her.

[15:17] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) choked on the next sip of wine. Her eyes were wide, an expression of shock on her face as the color paled from it. Slowly her head turned to her mother, then to Lady Nikki. “What in the name of the Priest Kings is in HIS PANTS?” she screamed.

[15:18] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) stares at Jade before commenting to Nikki “is that girl white silk? She may not have been the prime example. And perhaps we should have a similiar talk with Niall, because this one is going so well.” she sniffs again, as only a high caste woman of Gor can. “My daughter, its going to hurt and be uncomfortable, but there’s a good chance Niall won’t even notice. That’s where Nikki’s advice may be useful, Yes, his pants, Gwynn. Nikki perhaps you can describe that for her”

[15:22] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki looks at G and in her simple physician tone she just states “Niall like all men has a part attached to them that us women dont have. I have often called it their brain, but that is not something that we share with the men. It is about this long and about this big around, he will push that inside you and yes this first time it will hurt, and that G is how he puts his half of a wee little baby inside you” Nikki stops and tries to think “his half is so small you wont feel that, but that brain.. that you will feel”

[15:24] Jαdε (klonky) listens to the two woman and is glad they took over, she didn’t need a whipping for being too graphic, nods to herself as she sits back on her heels.

[15:26] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) flopped back in the chair, her nostrils flaring as she hyperventilates. “A brain?” she whispered, “AND half a baby?” She didn’t know that babies came in halves. She tried to imagine a long round object protruding from Niall’s pelvis that contained half a baby, and the picture in her mind was maddening. “More wine.” she squeaked. Now trying to figure out how she’ll survive getting impaled on this appendage. Her hands trembled, her eyes closed and she repeated….”Let this be over quickly, let this be over quickly.”

[15:30] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) ah I see you are going to adopt Nikki’s suggestion, Try not to say it outloud, but he may be making so much noise he wouldn’t hear you if you scream. Also, try to eat lightly, you don’t want to throw up on him, not the first time anyway. But it will all be fine, Gwynn, its what we must endure as women. Who knows” she ventures, hesitatingly “perhaps you may even enjoy this mating ritual as time goes on. Its best you not let him know it, however, as his demands will only grow and he may be angry if he thinks such conduct is unbecoming to a woman of Gor”

[15:35] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): “she listens well, now G try it again, silent so only you can hear and dont move your lips” she looks at the time “now we need to get over there, or should I say I have a few things to get ready before this companionship. so here is my last piece of advice “other than making no sounds as he will see that as encouragement. when its all over, turn over on your side, not facing him. dont move as he will think of that as a sign that you want him to use his brain again. then be sure to be the first one out of the bed and dont even venture into that room again until he is awake and out of it”

[15:36] Jαdε (klonky) stands and moves quickly over to Mistress G and fills her glass, then returns to her Mistress’ side ready to follow her Mistress.

[15:37] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) still had no color back in her cheeks and stared wide mouthed at her mother. Jaw gaping open in disbelief. “How could anyone…like…that?” she cringed. “This is a nightmare.” she gasped, putting her hands to her face, still in disbelief. Her eyes went to Jade, “Do you enjoy being impaled by brains?” she asked, surely even a slave didn’t like that. She nodded to Lady Nikki. “Don’t move my lips, don’t say it out loud and don’t move or he’ll think I want him to do it again.” she nodded again and again, “Sage advice, Lady.” Her eyes went to her mother, “I had no idea.”

[15:39] Sara Inkpen (sarai.inkpen) Nikki is a professional at this, Gwynn. all the women in Svago are her offspring, thats why they jumped at the chance to gain you. Less incest this way. Do you have more preparations to make too, Gwynn? We should all be prepared to get over there

[15:41] Nikki Lordes (alwaysnikki): Nikki looks at G “:this is why you keep a slave in the house, who cares if she enjoys it. Its what one of her purposes are” she turns and just glares at jade and then to her pregnant belly “and sometimes they fail. So do what you do to keep them around, burn the food, leave the house messy, soil his clothes with some kind of berry juice should he ask you to wash them.. remember you need a slave or you will get the brain” Happy this conversation was over she inclines her head ‘I will see both of you over there, I wish you well”

[15:42] Jαdε (klonky) nods happily and goes to answer but quickly shuts her mouth seeing the look on her Mistress’ face. “I wish you well Mistresses” she turns to follow her Mistress

[15:42] Gwynneth Threefold (zodiacbastnine) shook her head, she was ready…but this felt like a walk to the gallows. “Keep the slave or get the brain shoved up my ass. Got it.” she said, swallowing hard. “Well…I guess we should go.”

[[15:43] Nikki Lordes (AlwaysNikki Resident): Nikki walks down the stairs calling to Sara “maybe clarify the hole”

Category : Svago General Info

[16:34] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) becomes aware of light and sound in a gradual way. Sliding his hand through dried blood slowly he opens steel blue eyes to see what it is, and then jerks back at the realization that it is blood -even dried. He sits up all too fast. Glancing up he spots Alex, a wreck, and it all comes back to him. It is not a good feeling. Looking around he sees a bota and some cloth. He collects it, popping the top he smells it then tastes it and knowing it is water he wets the cloth. He slowly reaches up to the chain and pulls himself up and offers the cloth wordlessly to Alex.

[16:39] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) watches the jerky movements his brother made and just blinks, blearily. He’d been up most of the night, even if he’d made sure he’d gotten the bed. He takes the offered cloth and wipes at the dried blood on his brow. He felt worse than he’d felt when he drank that Svagian wine that once. Wincing as he cleans the cut, feeling the residual pain of having your face pummeled in by a metal worker. “You hit as hard as I’d imagine a trampling of bosk feels like.” He compliments.

[16:41] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “Don’t,” he says it was too raw. Compliment or not, the shame he felt at causing this was more than he could deal with right this very Ihn. He wets the second cloth and instead of wiping his own mouth, he slowly wiped at Alex’s other eye. He wouldn’t meet his gaze, but it was this movement that was so familiar to both of them, done so many times before it was as if it was a practiced dance. Only this time….this time, Trent felt the weight of causing these bruises himself. How do you even begin to apologize for that?

[16:47] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) quietly kept to scrubbing at his brow, feeling the crusted blood made him itch, but in his scrubbing, he’d opened the gash, blood seeping around the scab and dribbling down the side of his face anew. His whole face was just a fountain of pain and when his brother started to tend to him, he caught the hand by his wrist and sighs. The man even refused to look at him. “Sit down.” He all but commanded. “You’ve lost it the last few days. Drinking, staying out. I had to feed your slave because she’d been chained there without.” He took stock of his nose and hisses when his fingers touched it. “Kings” He wheezes. “Think you hit harder than him, but I think this time it was well deserved. I’ll not speak ill of the dead again.” He says as close to an apology as Alex ever really got. “You need to straighten up.” He warns. “We didn’t come here just for my sake. You needed to get away from all those reminders of…” He sighs. “Of the past.”

[16:51] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) hitched his breath when Alex caught his wrist and sits down next to him, bringing the bota with him. Saying Trent hit harder than their father made him wince. He listens to Alex’s lecture as he bows his head, wrapping both calloused hands around the bota in his lap. “I know,” he says after a time. “But it … it’s not ….wasn’t deserved Alex. We’ve kept violence out of our relationship so long, for … ” all of those reasons, and yet here they were. He closes his eyes and puts his head back on the wall for a few Ihn. “I know, we both had to leave Venna,” he admits.

[16:56] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) nods and scrubs at the choppy hair that clumped in his face, bits of food and flakes of blood showering into his lap. “We needed to, yes.” He pushes the man’s shoulder before squeezing it. “Do you have things to say?” He asks him and as an afterthought. “How’s your ribs?”

[16:58] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “They ache,” he shakes his head, covered in food and blood and in a cage was never how he thought he’d find himself. He opens steel blue eyes to pick a rivet and he stares at it hard, ignoring the way the walls seem to creep closer and closer by the Ihn. He breathes a little faster, but he says softly, “I never should have …. you are nothing like… we’re never going to be …. him.” It was slow, clumpy, but he tried.

[17:01] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) grunts, confirming the sentiment. “No, not like him.” He instinctively reached up to the ornate hammer around his neck and closes his eyes, the injured one throbbing and aching in its socket. “You’ll also move on and be okay.” He offers, knowing he was in dangerous waters. “You’ve move on, and they will not greet you in the City of Dust with contempt for it.”

[17:04] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) walked into the lower guard shack and paused. “Why the..” he paused looking at the Hayford boys. Sighs deeply looking for a incident report…

[17:05] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) winces when Alex said that, almost he would reply but he bit it back. He was clearly not so sure about that, what Alex was saying. IN fact, he was almost sure of the opposite. He takes a sip of water out of the bota and offers it to Alex. He looks up at the Warrior as he walks in to the room, his heart strumming fast hoping it means they get to get out of here, soon. His hands were not shaking yet but it would be soon.

[17:06] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) looks over the man who’d just come in, watching him look entirely confused before sighing and moving off. It was distraction enough. He blinked rapidly, trying to see through his bloody eye, and missed the hand off for the bota. “Tal.” He spoke gruffly, obviously in a very somber and rather unkind mood. It was more or less unlike him. “I’m hoping you have the keys.” He offers.

[17:11] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) ‘WARD!” he barked loudly and waited a moment before shouting for the lad again. A small boy about the age of ten ran in and clearly trying to catch his breath. “yee .. ye.. yes sir…” the boy spouted out. “Incident report.. where is it…” Pyrnir would say firmly as he lad looked up confused and then pointed to the Hayford boys. “Oh! I’ll go fetch it..” he said and bolted out of the room. While Pyrnir waited he moved to the cell and looked the two of them over. “Well being you two look like you beat the shit out of something, I’m going to assume it was each other.. tho both of you in the same cell would might.. of made that worse.. but being neither of you are dead… I’m going to ask this clearly… Why are you in my cell, looking like you just been fucked by a Tharlarion..”

[17:15] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) jumps slightly when the Warrior shouts, as his fingers go slack and nearly drop the bota in Alex’s lap. He catches it at the last Ihn and stares up at the Warrior some more. He lowers it to Alex’s leg. He opens his mouth to say something, and yet again words fail him. He finds the rivet again and stares hard at it, his hands begin to shake. Why are the walls so much closer than they were a few moments ago?

[17:16] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) snorts as the child comes scrambling in and found himself snorting at the man’s words before he winced and made a move to hold his nose, which he promptly thought better of. He took the bota that was placed on his leg and held it loosely. He stood up, albeit very slowly and with much effort and moves to lean into the bars that separated them from freedom. “We’ll call it a family dispute. Ain’t no law against beating a brother’s face in. Some of the warriors even complimented us on it.” He tried for a grin that came out more of a grimace. “Dead? Surely not. We are of the Metal workers, forged by iron and steel and stronger than both.” He was obviously proud of his caste and gestures to the door. “My brother here doesn’t much care for confined spaces.” He mentions.

[17:21] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) the lad would return with the incident report and was out of breath. “Outside.” he said in a firm tone, the lad would move and stand outside the door in ear shot of the Commander’s word. Unraveling the incident report he started to read over the details. “Family dispute.. ” he said simply as his eyes scanned across the lines. “Damage to Private Property, Disturbing the Peace…” he would read out the initial charges that came to mind. Looking to Trentan “Close your eyes, they deceive you. Smell the air.. listen to the water.. you are at open Thassa.. measure your breathing one break at a time.. concentrate on that.” he said simply, he had a man under his command who felt the same way when having to stow under deck during hard storms. Looking back to Alexander “Has a Physician come to see either one of you?”

[17:23] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “Please….” Trentan said, clasping shaking hands together, and it hurt to form those words. His brother landed blows as equally potent and the bruising showed. His words died on his beaten lips as the charges are read out. He closes steel blue eyes then, listening to the commander and tries to measure his breathing, knowing he is right. He had to do so on the ship at times, though Kings knew he stayed above decks as much as possible. He shakes his head slowly but he decides to let Alex do most of the talking.

[17:27] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) nearly grinned as the boy headed out and turned his gaze to the man. He listened to the mantra he posed to his brother and gave a light nod of thanks to him. “No physician. Though I’d complain about one man that threatened to stab me should I not comply…” He turned his blue gaze onto the man, “Never once did we draw weapons.” He spoke concisely. “And to stab a man of their own Home Stone.” He let that fall where it may. “We’ll pay damage for the things that were broke and see it spic and span. I do remember using a clay bowl against my brother’s head.” He chuckles lightly, wincing at the pain searing his face and leans close to the bars. “I don’t much think the physician’s are to be trusted.” There was his low caste sensibilities again. “I don’t trust their trickery.”

[17:30] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) grunted slightly at the man’s words, tho amused as he was by them. “Nothing different between those of the High Caste and the Low caste except the manner of education grasped between both. We are all men and women..” he said simply, most likely the one of the High Caste that saw all men and women of a homestone equal. Rolling up the report he would move back towards the desk and lean up against it. Looking at the two brothers a moment “Who threw the first punch and what started this argument that lead to brothers to blows…” he would ask as his eyes scanned either one of the men. Could be twins to a point, which only made him miss his own brother Jace.

[17:33] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) opens his eyes and drags himself off the bench, clutching his stomach an Ihn or two where he was stomped but only so he can grasp the bars and pull himself to them, steel blue eyes opening as he locks on the Warriors there, “Please, let me out.” Kings he was trying his damnedest to not sound like a child. He was over a century in years, and but this…..this was trying him to the bone.
[17:35] pokey Zebberman: ” I just placed them in the jail to cool off I did not arrest them as I do not places charges i am simple a Warrior no Magistrate ” looks to the Commander ” Unless the owner of the Inn would like charges?” shrugs

[17:36] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) reaches out and grips his brother’s shoulder, squeezing hard and holding him centered in place. “I did, I suppose, throw that first punch regardless if it was warranted or not.” He spoke, taking the responsibility. “Then I so wonderfully encouraged him to retaliate which as you can see…he was able to do.” His head began to pound a bit, the worst hangover of his life along with feeling like sliced meat to feed a tharlarion. “All brother’s have issues to see through, sometimes it is best to do so with words, sometimes it does take a swing or two. The Inn was an unfortunate accident, which we’ll see paid fully.”

[17:39] Niall Carver (Bastnine) would look at the small clutch of scrolls he’d not had time to look at until now; He had no wish to continue the conversation he’d had with Gwyn, and there it was- a reason to avoid her! ” It seems I have some business here. Please excuse me.” He’d head into the building.

[17:41] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) would snap his fingers at Pokey for him to fall silent. “I’ll deal with you in a minute.” he said firmly tho there was look in his eyes he was jesting with his brother. His eyes would turn back towards Trentan getting up, trying to beg for release. He felt for the man, but he couldn’t stand on two brothers coming to blows in a public forum regardless if charges were laid down or not. Hearing Alexander sprout up and taking ownership of the situation he would nod. “Then depending charges if any are to be laid bare across you two for the damage to property.” he said simply as he would push off the desk. “You.” would point to Alexander. “You need tempering, and in this I am in dire need of men who can land a hit and take one in turn..” he said in a firm tone. “You are here by mandated into the City Guard for the duration for Four Months. You are to report to the Sergeant of the watch or any commanding officer of the Caste of Warriors. You will be expected to train under our caste as a mandatory sentancing
[17:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw): under the Authority of the Commander of Svago” he said in a firm tone, figuring he would win from this situation. Looking over to Pokey and then back to Alexander and Trentan. “As for you lad..” he would point to Trentan. “You were defending yourself.. charges are dropped against you. If there are any damage to property that needs to be paid out it will be through the Caste of Warriors that will float the bill and tact it on to your Brother’s service to Svago..”

[17:46] Niall Carver (Bastnine) would look from face to face as he stepped inside, and would wait for Pyrnir to finish speaking before saying,” I received a message that there was an incident. I apologize that there was not a praetor to be here.” It seemed that the situation was being taken care of, but kings forbid Niall not taking on work seriously, and of course, making sure that he was needed or not.

[17:46] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “No,” Trentan’s eyes cleared, he felt his brother’s calming influence, but he gasped at the Warrior’s words. He lifts his chin, though his hands still shook. “We are the Caste of Metal Workers, we can not be forced to practice another Caste nor would we invoke the ire of the Priest-Kings,” he made the sign of the circle shakily, eyeballing the walls as he was -sure- they were closer, “to do so. You can not raise his Caste! You are damning him,” the panic he already had at the closed space was added to this. “We’ll all be blue flamed to death all if us!” He shakes his head. “I refuse to be absolved of charges,” he said clearly.

[17:48] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) paled and leaned in against the bars. “You’re sentencing me to caste work that isn’t my own?” He asks confused, and looks to his brother. “Is that not a council decision?” He asks, panic settling in his gut at the idea he’d be muscle for anything. “Four months…” He breathes.

[17:48] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes): “He definitely doesn’t refuse to be absolved either” He glares his brother down.
[17:49] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “YES I DO, do not speak for me,” glares back. “It was both of us.”
[17:49] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) spots Niall, “Help us.”

[17:51] Niall Carver (Bastnine) “I must tell you that they are correct. It is for a praetor or magistrate to determine any punishment they recive.”

[17:54] Niall Carver (Bastnine) felt some one walk behind him, and would pass his brother the scroll he had. “There was an incident involving these two metal workers,” He’d state that that was what they were. “I believe this falls into your jurisdiction.”

[17:55] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) looking at the brothers as he would approach the cell. “You are men, men of Gor. Under City Law any man is required to defend his homestone against any threat afar or within.” he said in a calm tone. “You can spout your faith of the Kings to me but Mjölnir betrays you.” he would tap the ‘Fang’ necklace on his own throat reminding the lads what they wore. “I have threats to Svago from the North, East and South.. under emergency authority provided to the head of my caste.. I can force enlistment of any man I deam worthy that will wear the color of Crimson in the defense of this homestone.” he said in a calm firm tone. “The council will back my decision.” he said simply as he looked to Alexander. “This is not a change of caste, when you are not on patrol or under the charge of a Officer of my Caste you are free to return home. Consider this a Service to your homestone. At the end of the four months, if you choose to return full time to the Caste of Metalworkers then so be it… if you decide you wish to
[17:55] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw): remain a Warrior of Svago… depending on your service I will make that fight for you to change caste.” he said firmly and watched Drusus approach. “Preator.. back away from my cell…”

[17:56] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): nods his head in greeting to the commander and his brother as he steps into the room he walks over to the cell as he says “Tal” to both of them taking some scrolls from his brother he begins to read them over as he stands infront of the two brothers in the cell

[17:59] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) nods to Niall, thankful for him and listens actively to Pyrnir. He pushed lightly at his brother, who already had a limp of sorts and nods. “As long as I take full responsibility..” He silences seeing the Praetor and raises his chin as he sees the Commander having a bit of a aggressive nature about the situation. “Tal.” He says.

[17:59] Niall Carver (Bastnine) would take a step back. He knew the law, true, but it was Drusus’ calling to execute it. “Drusus is fulfilling his function, Commander. If you wish to stand in his way, I will be sure to inform the Administrator that the law was not duly allowed to proceed.” His words were quiet, but carried a bedrock solidity to them.

[18:00] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): looks up from the scroll at the commander then rolls his eyes and turns his head to the two brothers in the cage “what happen boys?”

[18:00] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) looks at the Warrior and absolutely one hundred percent has not a clue what he is talking about, when it comes to the tap to his fanged necklace, or the word Mjölnir , it is as obvious as Tor-tu-Gor on Thassa. His devotion to the Priest-Kings was total, and complete. However, the Warrior invoked the rights of Home Stone and -that- he understood. He visibly relaxed when it was told that he was not forcing a Caste change, even though the threat that the council would approve it was there. He turns to his brother and shakes his head, silently trying to talk him out of it in one of their rapid silent conversations.

[18:01] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “Warrior, of course, were it to come to that my hammer is always in service to the Home Stone but I need my brother at my side…. and it was both ….” he trails off catching the glance from his brother and the Nial and the Praetor talking and his head hurt so badly. He pressed his forehead to the bars.

[18:06] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): finishes ready the scrolls and looks at the boys as he smiled getting a grasp of what happened “well you two have had a fun night havent you, but there is a bit of information on how this fight between you started?”

[18:06] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) rubs the bridge of his nose, he was a son of a High Magistrate of Ar, technicalities were used in the best of times to force able bodied men to serve the Empire as warriors of Ar. Granted most of the time they were fodder for front lines. “Charges were not filed officially, while a Incident Report was filed to mark that the men have been placed within the cell. The Jurisdiction of this matter falls upon the Caste of Warriors. Til such time civil charges have been filed against the two men.. they are taking a cell in my Captain’s own words .. ‘To cool off’ ” he said simply. “I am simply offering the Lads a way out of any charges by one of them serving the Homestone of Svago as a Guard. This benefits the Homestone and the two in question. I won’t remind you Scribes, that the security of this port falls within my jurisdiction and from what was just offered… it seems to be have accepted. Any formal charges of Damage of Property will fall to my caste and be tact on to the man’s service to Svago.” he said
[18:06] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw): simply looking at Alexander. “Unless you rather deal with the Civility Nature of the charges that may be laid against.. both of you.”

[18:08] Niall Carver (Bastnine) It may be that the commander was the son of a magistrate, and that he knew the laws of Ar, but he was a warrior, and they were all in Svago. “Praetors have the authority to adjudicate any crime in the area they are charged to patrol, usually markets and docks. The decision is immediate. If the convicted wishes to appeal, their case will automatically go to trial.” Again Niall spoke quietly,

[18:09] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) looked to Drusus “It’s your show.. I have offered an approach that isn’t normally offered.. I leave it up to you.”

[18:12] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) nods to Pyr’s words. “I’d be able to practice my caste…but aid in defense of our city..” He looks between the men, trying to judge which he trusted more. Warriors that lived by blade or scribes that wrote sorcery and lived by those trails and strings of ink. “I wish no charges, I’d be much more inclined to defend the city and guard the streets of my Home Stone than to face any sort of trial…” He eyed the Praetor and Pyr, letting them duke out who’s word was law in this building.

[18:14] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): sighed softly as he stepped between the commander and the cells his eyes was starting to take on a look of death and doom to anyone who did not answer his question this time as he looked at the boys he smiled softly to them “im going to ask one more time how did the fight start? if you do not answer my question..” as he looked them over he screamed at them “I WILL FORCE YOUR CASTE CHANGED TO FUCKEN SLEEN SHIT SHOVLER!!”
[18:14] Meilin (kimmy2501) makes her way to the edge of the gathering, listening carefully but not making an issue of her presence.

[18:17] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) as the Warrior had explained it was not a change of Caste and Alex was not being damned, he was no longer protesting as loudly. He had fallen silent then. Watching the wall out of the corner of his eye but he was gaining control of himself by the Ihn. His pounding head made worse b the shouting. His steel blue eyes moved to the Praetor, and then Niall. He turns towards the Praetor, “Could you please not shout, Praetor? My head is killing me,” he said softly. “It started over … ” he trails off, trying to remember. He looks over at Alex and looks puzzled. Then back at the Praetor, “My brother said something to invoke my ire.”

[18:18] Niall Carver (Bastnine) would nod to Alexander. Drusus may consider the option if it was favorable. He’d keep his face composed as Drusus spoke to the two brothers in such a heated manner, though his mouth twitched slightly to the left.

[18:20] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) Raised a brow ‘Sleen Shit Shoveler’ he thought was that a caste… he just made kettle slaves do it. Taking in a deep breath, he had tried to offer a modified ‘Penel Collar’ moment and envoke Military Service for lesser crimes. Shame this wasn’t the Empire, but Svago was not at war.. she was on the brink of it. Martial Law couldn’t be enforced and he wasn’t the Ubar. Moving over to Pokey he would slap the man’s shoulder “You did good.” he said softly as he looked over the square.

[18:21] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) winces as the Praetor shouts and tilts his head to balance out the buzzing there. “I’m sure that sleen shit shovlers are a noble caste within themselves.” He speaks respectfully of the sleen trainers. His blue eyes, one obviously unwell looked over the man. “I insulted him, he did so back, I replied with a fist and that’s how fights tend to escalate.” He explains simply. “It was a family matter and I’ll be happy to see the damages to the Inn paid in full.” He watches Pyr move away, his grip on the bar a bit more harsh as he figured he’d be left with sorcerers now.

[18:23] pokey Zebberman smiles looking up ” I stopped two brother from breaking up the Inn and hurting each other no more no less a simple day of a Warrior ” looks up to the Commander ” it is Raining orr has the wind pick up something is in the Air” grins

[18:24] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): he suddenly let out a small laugh and smiled at both of them he had threatened a caste change to something unpleasent something he had no intention of backing up with action but he smiled softly at them deciding to keep that to himself “so you insulted him may i ask what was the insult?”

[18:28] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) clenches his jaw and took a moment to calm himself. “You could ask Praetor, but family business is for the family.” He speaks simply, he’d give absolutely nothing more than he had.

[18:28] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) pales completely. He looks at Alex and then the Praetor, “It is a family matter.” He knew somewhere this was probably not going to suffice. He leans looking after the Warrior, then back at Alex. He turns to face the Praetor then. “I will not speak against my brother.”

[18:33] Niall Carver (Bastnine) was curious about what started the fight, but he could also understand not wanting a family issue not being aired to the public. So far his conflicts with Gwyn had been largely private and he preferred it that way.

[18:34] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): lets out a chuckle admiring there loyalty to each other and how it had endured there fight he nodded his head in understand he would never speak out against his brother either “very well since you both seem to want to take responsibility here is what will happen, since you” he points at alex “started the fight you will pay for the property damages and other fee’s that is 40 copper tasks to the inn from broken items and two silver that was spent on braking up your fight you will also pay patrices bill of 10 copper for a total of 2 silver and 50 copper paid by weeks end to the inn if you should fail this i will double it” he then turned to trentan “you are metal workers? then your punishment for this will be to replace all the old metal in the inn with brand new ones for half price” he looked between them and then back at alex “i assume you will help your brother with that work to” he smiled at them this time “seem fair?”

[18:35] Niall Carver (Bastnine) nodded,”It seems so to me. The Inn will come out better for this conflict. These two,” He’d nod to the brothers,” Do good work, and with pride.”

[18:36] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) sighs loudly, his irritation growing. “Are we being charged with anything in particular, or are you giving us a suggestion, Praetor?” He spouts off. “Farewell, Niall…Oh, and I’d like to be let out now, Thank you.” He snaps a bit.

[18:37] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “Alex,” he hisses.

[18:37] Meilin (kimmy2501) nods to herself, the Inn would be in good hands, and she would make the brothers feel welcome again once the reparations had been made. Whether or not they held a grudge, she would not.

[18:38] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “I will be glad to offer such restitutions, Praetor,” he announces loudly. But his gaze shifted to the Warrior, wondering if he Alex could have been better off.

[18:39] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): slowly turns his head to look at alex “damage of private property, damage of public property, disruption of the peace, assualt…do you want me to go on?”

[18:39] Niall Carver (Bastnine) stepped outside, smiling as he saw Joslyn,”Tal Sister. ” He’d extend that to the lady he’d not yet met,” And Lady. “

[18:41] Meilin (kimmy2501) moves silently back toward the Inn. She had work to do. She nods politely to Elysia Jolyn and Niall.

[18:42] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) slips a finger in his ear and wiggles it a bit and looks at his brother. “Do you want to press charges for our fists?” He asks him. “I don’t…so…I don’t believe assault applies.” He counted on his fingers. “We’ll pay for damages that’ve been accumulated.” He states easily as well but looks back to the man. “I saw a slave sucking off a man in the square and the noise disturbed my peace. Shall we give you names for their arrest as well?” He works his jaw. He was obviously tired of being in the cell. “I damaged a clay bowl worth maybe a copper a piece.” He speaks “So yes, what are my charges?” He could nearly be an advocate at this rate.

[18:44] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) turns and once more tries to grapple his brother, “What in the Kings name is -wrong- with you?” this time though it is with a lot less force, instead he is trying to get his attention, they were so close to getting out of this ever-closing cell he could taste it and his brother just had to just. keep. talking. “Stop it.”

[18:44] Niall Carver (Bastnine) looked back to the door, wondering if perhaps Joslyn was speaking out to Drusus.” It seems business as usual…” He’d offer. “perhaps I can escort you home and you can tell me of what you’ve heard of my adventures.”

[18:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) shrugs “The offer was on the table.. you never officially accepted it. Now you don’t have that choice.” he said simply looking at Pokey. “I don’t like to force my officers to do what is needed. A man’s heart has to be in the way he commands.. and I’m asking you to command men that you will have to lead into battle.. they have to trust and respect you.. a forced man in chains will do what he is told yes… but he is nothing be a pawn. I don’t see you as a pawn, I see you as someone who can lead but your heart has to be in it.” he said simply looking at Pokey. “You want a replacement, you train them.. then I’ll bust your ass all the way back to Warrior and you can live the rest of your days in peace in what ever shack you deem worthy to park your ass in.” he said simply and looked back towards the cells. Scribes, never saw the greater picture… shaking his head he looked at Pokey. “Captain… open recruitment. Any man willing to stand and fight.. I am willing to make a fight for them to change caste. You
[18:44] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw): find someone willing, you put them through the ringer and see if they would be worthy to stand as one of us… ” he said simply as he look back towards the Hayford boys. Both of them would made fine War Engineers, specially Alexander. Something about the lad, spoke of a man of Honor and one who could lead otthers.
[18:45] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): a smile spread across his face as he watched them curiously he then turns to to warriors “let this one” points at trentan “out he has accepted his punishment and im sure is eager to get to work you can leave the other one in there a bit longer seems he has not calmed down from the fight just yet and wants to start another”

[18:49] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) Trent held his brother still for a moment, he was listening to the Warrior in the distance, any man. He turns to look at his brother for a few Ihn. This would be a conversation, but not here. Not now. He turns to the Praetor and swallows hearing him grant his release from this blasted cell but he steeled himself, and took a deep breath. “Not without my brother.”

[18:49] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) shut up a bit too late and looks over his brother, his bloody eye hurting a bit and he took to winking at the man. “Go on. See to my companion and slave.” He said, squeezing his brother’s shoulder. ” I intend to do what I can so no punishment is made.” He mutters under his breath before looking over Drusus. “I will pay…I’ll be paying for an advocate of the caste I hate, unless the offer the Commander of Svago has given still stands.” He stood proud, his jaw set and inclines his head, a proud man with a ravaged face. “If that’s all you need from me Praetor?”

[18:51] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): suddenly let out a loud booming laugh as he watched them “oh interesting so you want to serve the warrior caste and have them pay your debt?” he chuckled to himself as he thaught about it for a little bit then shrugged his shoulders and waved the commander over to him “commander i have a propasistion for you”

[18:51] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) slapping Pokey on the shoulder he would move over to Drusus. Pyr would pull the coin purse from his belt and fish out four silver. Handing it palm up towards the Praetor. “What is owed by them.” he said simply as he would look to both of the Hayford boys and then to Drusus. “My coin is good as any other…” he said simply, hearing Alex, this was the only legal way he could possibly get the man to serve. “This is Two Months Wages on a Guard Posting that hasn’t been accept fully into the Warriors.. incidentally.. same wages I pay my son.”

[18:53] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): looks down at the four silver coins he tilted his head then shrugged and took them from pyr “very well alex is yours Commander trentan get to work on fixing up the inn’s metal”

[18:54] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) looks at Alex, ‘are you sure’? his bruised face read.

[18:55] Aetius Rufus Vita (Igor Rechkalov) slowly made his way towards the lower districts office. The Warrior looks worse for wear, heavy ags under his eyes… Was that a branch stuck in his cloak? Either way the man came to a halt at the sight of Joslyn and Nial and offered them a nod of his head, “Tal.” he offered, before his gaze traveled to the office for a moment.

[18:55] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): smiled to alex as he looked down at the coins “i will see to it that your share of these four coins makes it to the inn so your damages to it are paid in full”

[18:57] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) nods and looks at Pyr. “I’ll do it.” His gaze turns to his brother and he shrugs. “Much better than making our wares and it being free, isn’t it?” He says and glances back to the Commander. “I’d like to see to my face before attending to my new duties. Tomorrow?” He asks. “If I can get out of this blasted cell.”

[18:57] Aetius Rufus Vita (Igor Rechkalov) looked over his shoulder as Joslyn passed him and then shot a glance over to Niall in light question of the matter, but said nothing and would head inside to see what all the commotion was about..

[18:58] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) lets go of his brother then, he’s stopped running his mouth hotly and the Warrior seemed sensible, and after all he was not being forced to change Caste, and Trent was hoping this would be good for him in the long run. He flexes his calloused fingers, as if he were already working the metal grating of the Inn, he moved to the door, steel blue eyes looking to either man for a key.

[18:58] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) he would nod simply as he had placed a bit of extra silver into Drusus hand to make this official. Next Council meeting was going to be interesting in the least.. moving over to the cell he would pull the key ring from his belt. “Trentan your out first.” he said firmly looking at Alexander, he would hold the man for a moment to have word for him before dismissing him for the night.

[19:00] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) walked behind his brother but wouldn’t make a move to leave unless he was told to. He wouldn’t be pissing off everyone today when the deal was the best he’d get. He put his hand to his brother’s back. “I’ll be starving. Maybe Patrice will have some of those tart things with the fruit in it.” He offers, giving the man something to look forward to.

[19:01] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) hesitates, looking up at the Warrior, the man was taller than him and he eyed him for a half-Ihn though it was ridiculous. Trentan had the brute force of a Metal Worker behind him, as did Alex, given the proof of bruises on bother their faces. As much as he longed to get out of this cell that he was -sure- was smaller even now, he stopped just inside. “Why?” It was not sullen, or fearful, or even disrespectful. He shielded his brother even then.
[19:02] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) he knew he had no way to stop a skilled Warrior for getting at or hurting Alex but he’d be the rock that stemmed the flow all the same.

[19:03] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) looked at Trentan, admiring the man’s loyalty to his brother even in a situation where his mind would think the walls were closing in on him. “You are a honorable man and a loving brother… I give you my oath as the Commander of Svago and a man of Gor… I will not allow harm to come to your brother under my charge.. I am to speak to my new guard of expectations and nothing more. I will send him along shortly… ” he said softly looking at Trentan. “Alexander Hayford, step from the cell and place your back against the bars facing the Preator.” he gave clear and precise instructions, also showing Trentan that he was allowing Alex to step from the cell.

[19:04] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) reaches out and grasps the Warrior’s forearm and gave it a squeeze, if there was gratitude in his steel blue eyes he would not let the man see it for long. He steps from the cell and passes the Warriors, but he didn’t go too far.

[19:05] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): smiles softly and nods his head to the commander then the brothers “i shall see to the paperwork and make sure the other scribes know this has been delt with and on my way i will pay your debt alex to the inn that the nice commander has paid for”
[19:06] Drusus Carver (leroo Baily): waved his hand to them as he turned to leave “be safe and have fun”

[19:06] Aetius Rufus Vita (Igor Rechkalov) came to stand inside the office and readjusted the helmet kept under his arm, “Commander.” he said and would look to the others present, offering them a nod of his head in kind before his gaze fell back upon Pyrnir. Aetius looked rough on the eye, like he had just tracked for severals days at a time and it was all clear to be read from his facial expression…

[19:07] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) couldn’t stop the smile on his face as his brother made an attempt at the least to protect him. He moves and follows the instruction of Pyr and settles quietly against the bars, just happy to be on the other side of them. He was horribly sore, pained, but he held himself tall and takes a deep breath. “Gratitude for your handling of my brother. He is a good man.”

[19:12] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) goes to wait by the wall, one palm pressed to his temple where his brother had introduced a clay bowl it it. Steel blue eyes searched the busy streets. At some point, maybe a Physician would come into play here but he waited.

[19:13] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) taking in a deep breath as Drusus left “Scribes..” he muttered under his beard before turning his eyes towards Alexander. “Alexander Hayford, the Warriors Caste has paid your fines in the sum of Four Silvers. Under authority of the Council of Svago and by Caste Law I am subjugating you to Military Service in repayment to the Warriors Caste of Svago. You are hereby appointed a Guard of the Lower City at the pay of 1 silver a month. You will answer directly to the officers appointed above you and your acting Captain will be that of Aetius Vita. He will see you are properly accessed, trained and attired. Such items of our caste are on loan to you through the duration of your service. If at the end of your service, you choose to stay within the ranks… I will at that time access the assessment reports provided to me by the officers appointed above you and see if you are worthy of changing caste. You are a Metal Worker, and by the fines I just paid.. you can dish a hit while taking one.. ” he would pause
[19:13] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw): looking at the man. “Swear your oath that you Alexander Hayford, will obey and uphold the Laws of Svago, serve and protect the Homestone with your life from all threats foreign and domestic through the duration of your service or the debt that was paid is paid in full.” he said in a firm tone.

[19:18] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) listens very carefully as this was a drastic change in his life. He turns his head to the other man that was there and inclines it in a silent greeting. “I understand the state of what is expected of me.” He turns to look up at the Commander, maybe he’d get what they were fed. Though his blue eyes were hard, pained, but the seriousness of the situation called for the harsh look he was given. “I, Alexander Hayford, do so give my oath to uphold the laws of Svago and protect the city and its Home Stone with my body, my life if need be. I will serve my home with the iron heart I was born with.” He stood just a bit taller, proudly when discussing such a serious thing as Home Stones.

[19:20] Aetius Rufus Vita (Igor Rechkalov) slowly started to get an idea what this was about and looked toward Trentan for a moment, “Who won?” he simply asked as his steely gaze went for one busted face to the other before settling upon Alexander, “That would be me.” he said and turned his attention to Pyrnir, “Do we give him a spoon or a sword?” he asked then in a light raise of his brows. Surely Pyr knew what he meant.

[19:21] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “Alexander won,” Trentan was not ashamed of this, for his younger brother had clearly moved faster, even if Trentan hit harder, but it was Alex’s swift wit that spoke the words needed to over anger Trentan in just the right way to make him lose his sensibility, and Trentan knew it.

[19:23] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) he would nod taking the man’s oath as good as steel. “I, Pyrnir Ala’Bandit, Commander of the First and Second Fleet of Svago and Head of Caste of the Warriors of Svago.. Accept your Oath and hold you to it. You are dismissed to seek medical attention, when you are able you are to report to Captain Vita for assessment.” he said in a calm but firm tone. “Captain, treat this man as any recruit seeking our caste.. but I want him on patrol properly attired.” he said simply and looked back to Alexander. “When your earn your right to stand a guard, that’s when your time of service starts… ” he said with a sly smile crossing his lips. Pyrnir was a Bandit, he knew how to use coin, trick women into submission and get what was needed in the most desperate of times.

[19:25] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) turns his gaze back to the man that was now identified as Aetius. “I make the swords you swing and the arrow tips you bury in your enemies.” He says with a sharp tongue. His head was the anvil and the wounds to it was the hammer. “If I do not know at least which side goes in the bad guy, I think I’d have more than one problem.” He was blunt, if anything. He turned back to Pyr and listened with a dreadful nod. “Physicians…” He says with as much affection as the Commander had called out scribes. “I’d like…to shower and sleep in a bed that is my own first. I’ll seek out Aetius” He looks back to the man. “Upon my waking. My face will heal.” His gaze darts to the door, ready to be gone.

[19:29] Aetius Rufus Vita (Igor Rechkalov) nodded firmly upon Trentan’s words and managed a light grin, “Dually noted.” he said and would dip his head to Pyrnir, “Very well.” he said and would turn his gaze for Alexander, “Find me at the Warrior’s hall tomorrow. I’ll get you properly suited. As for your wounds, you may see more of them during your assessment.” he told.

[19:30] Pчяиιя Alα’Bαиdιт (Lextonian Snowpaw) would take in a deep breath “Honor and Steel” he would call out ot the warriors within earshot as he started to depart. Wondering if this was going to go over well with the council. For now, he felt a small victory was had.. for the moment he would enjoy it.

[19:31] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford): “Thank you, Warrior,” he said quietly as the man passed him.

[19:31] Alexander Hayford (HereForFunTimes) narrows his gaze at the thought of getting even more wounds and nods. He’d already sworn himself. “Very well.” He said simply. He’d taken much worse in his time. Upon the Commanders leave, he’d follow suit, gripping his brother’s shoulder. “Home.” He said almost desperately.

[19:33] Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford) nods once. He thought they’d never get out of that blasted cage. He heard the idea of more wounds but …. Alex had grown up taking hits. This time, he prayed to the Priest-Kings it was for a more honorable reason. “Yes.” He looks at Aetius curiously once, but he turns away.

[19:33] Aetius Rufus Vita (Igor Rechkalov): “Honor and steel.” he bid them and too would take his leave then so.

[2019/04/08 17:39] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “Brother!” He calls even as he is a few feet away. His steel blue eyes rests on his brother’s sword and nods. He lifts his hand to Latha in a greeting before he eyes the slave at his brother’s feet, “Swindle,” he acknowledges.

[2019/04/08 17:40] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): When the slave (NPC) returned with her drink of tea, she would reach down for it and place the saucer on her lap. It was not ideal for drinking tea, but she was trying to adapt to the lifestyle of her father and new stepmother. She gave it a careful sip, lifting the many layers of her veil in order to do so. “How kind of you, but I may leave the caste for good now. Maybe even join my stepmother here!” she suggested as another man started to join them, she would give him a polite nod in greeting.

[2019/04/08 17:42] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me peers around the sign, and nods in return to the other Lady there.

[2019/04/08 17:43] Latha (elise.larimore): “That sounds good, Alex. And yes, Swindle, if you’re good, you may eat the leftovers.” She looked to Alex. “I allow my own slaves to eat the leftovers when they are hungry. If that’s agreeable to you, I’ll let Swindle do it, too.” She raised her hand in a return greeting to Trent, then turned to Zaida. “What do you mean – work here? You’d give up being high caste to work in the inn? How did you even become high caste anyway? Kron is a peasant.” Then she wondered if Zaida had companioned up.

[2019/04/08 17:44] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me felt the tug to his tunic and rolls his eyes. “You insult me and want tasty treats. You’ll be thankful for the vulo feet.” He comments and looks at his brother, noting where his gaze went. “Tal, you’ve risen from bed.” He comments about the man sleeping more and more lately. Hearing Zaida his eyebrows raise. “Lower caste? You must really dislike and abhor your caste.” He comments offhandedly. “She can consume leftovers if you promise not to spoil her. She’s had nothing but gruel and water in my care.” He points to the kitchen area. “Go make my family dinner and prepare it, Mine. Pat will be along as soon as she catches a whiff of food.”

[2019/04/08 17:46] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me wipes the back of his mouth, totally caught out. Did he smell like paga too? He wipes the guilty look off his face and crosses his arms over his chest. “I can sleep if I like, I do enough work around here.” He was gruff sounding, less jovial than his usual self. But still his eyes softened a bit when he heard Pat would join them soon.

[2019/04/08 17:47] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me wiggles happily at the notion she would get leftovers! Then of course, Alex overruled Latha and she pouted all pretty like … then, then he changed his mind! “Oh I will be good, both of you, I promise!” nodded her head up and down, perhaps already dreaming of ramberry tarts. She was dismissed and sent to the kitchen, pushing to her feet trying to keep up with it all. Turned at the sound of a familiar one word greeting, and glanced over, offering her own with a little grin. “Master.”

[2019/04/08 17:48] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): “I do not abhor my caste. It is all I know. But I believe the bonds of family are stronger than caste, and perhaps I should join my blood!” she returned in reply at the man’s comment, before her eyes flickered back to her stepmother’s unveiled face, “My mother was of higher caste than my Father. Her mother was a green and her father was a commander of Hochburg. They were not keen on the idea, but I suppose Kron had a way of getting what he wanted”. She said, giving her tea another sip. She only knew vague details of the companionship, her mother shielding her from it.

[2019/04/08 17:51] Latha (elise.larimore): “But … you take your father’s caste. I don’t understand. And she was a green what?” Latha looked longingly back at Swindle, wishing Alex hadn’t commanded her to fix the family food. Latha could really use a kal-da talking to Kron’s daughter. She turned her head to the two men. “You can come in and make yourselves comfortable, you know. Trent, that chamomile tea is still an open offer. I noticed you were still limping at the meeting.”

[2019/04/08 17:52] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me heard his brother and fought down the bit of disdain he felt at the comment. His eyes watch the slave patter off with elation and couldn’t help the tug at the corner of his lip. He felt a hot lead at the physician’s comment settle in his gut. “Ah, us of the metal worker’s you’ll find are most proud of our caste. We are taught that our caste is our family from birth.” He comments not unkindly. He moves slowly into the Inn, his back to the paga reeking brother of his and felt his shoulders tense with irritation. “Yes..you do plenty of work. I wonder if that is why there were molten piles of metal that’d seeped through a caste that was left in the forge!” He snaps with a dismissive tone. He moved to drop right onto a pillowed cushion. “Thank you, Latha. I appreciate the invitation.” He leans back and sighs. “Swindle, bring wine with whatever you serve me.” He commands off hand.

[2019/04/08 17:54] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me narrows his blue eyes at Alex’s back, but he chose to say nothing. He turns instead to Lady Latha, clear blue eyes looking at her and Zaida for a few Ihn, only half following the conversation. “Thank you, Lady,” he says. “My leg is better but I do have a bit of a headache,” he admits. He follows his brother inside the Inn with a glance at Swindle, “That tea will be good.”

[2019/04/08 17:54] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me wasn’t stupid and already had set to multi-tasking, one heap full of spices for the drink pop and one for the tarsk chops. Hummed as she set the former onto the flames, and the latter was set on the grill. Peeks into the various things on the stove, seeing a collection of root vegetables as per usual. Grabs some hard larma, diced it and set it to boil on the stove. “Wine, of course my Master.” Seemed content enough in the kitchen, obviously enjoying pottering about cooking things. Glanced up when tea was also added to the menu, and on went a pot of water. She needed more hands.

[2019/04/08 17:58] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): /me fiddle with her saucer. She didn’t know that sense of pride yet that stirred the man to passionate words. She hardly knew herself or her own linage till recently. Perhaps she should stick with the greens? She was not sure either way, her youth and inexperience at life worked against her. She didn’t say anything in reply to him, just listened and waited for the man to move off to the table with his brothers. Looking to Latha with a slight shrug of her shoulders. “I was trained under my grandmother. I did not know Kron or that he was my father, it was guarded secret even from him”.

[2019/04/08 18:01] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me hummed a tuneless melody as she tasted the softened larma, sprinkling in a small handful of sugar and stirring it. Carefully flipped over each of the tarsk chops, stirred the kal-da, and set a pouch of chamomile leaves into the pot to steep for the tea. Grabbed a tray, sliding it onto the counter and grabbed a bottle of Svago wine and poured a liberal amount into a goblet. Set a rep cloth and eating utensils for three upon it, along with three plates. Padded over to the innkeeper, presenting her with a bowl of extra hot, extra spicy kal-da while the meal finished cooking.
[2019/04/08 18:05] Latha (elise.larimore): “He did tell me that he didn’t know he had a daughter. It seems it was kept from him, too.” She looked up at Swindle, looked longingly at the bowl of kal-da, but simply said, “Have you served your master his drink yet?”

[2019/04/08 18:06] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me was happy enough to look over at his slave as he made the food, his blue eyes glaring down at his brother every so often. “Do you choose now to go to the tavern yourself?” He asks a bit hot headed. “You get the forge you wanted and this is how you act?”He clenches his jaw. “I went to the forge this morning. Seeing the state of it, Father would’ve…” He let it trail off, his lip curling in anger.

[2019/04/08 18:07] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me put his calloused hand on the table a little too loudly, “Dare you lecture me, -younger- brother?! You spend enough time in the tavern yourself,” he practically growled back. But he forced his shoulders to visibly relax. “I was in a middle of a project….” he trails off, because he had forgotten why he left without cleaning up as he usually does.

[2019/04/08 18:08] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me shakes her head. “No Mistress, he asked for it with his meal which is still finishing cooking. I figured since this was ready I would deliver it and manage my time efficiently. Though if I dally, then it might burn ..” trailed off, trying to offer the drink one more time before heading back into the kitchen.

[2019/04/08 18:08] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me pushes the loose strands of hair off her face while making her way into the inn. The smell of fresh foods making her mouth water for the first time in what felt like awhile. She offers a smile to the woman in the chairs as she starts looking around for familiar face. “Alexander! Trentan! I wasn’t expecting to see you both here. Mind if I join you…?” Sniffing at the air she moves over besides her companion and takes a seat before she gives them a chance to respond. Though hearing the mood of the pair of them she already starts to second guess herself.

[2019/04/08 18:11] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): “Pride I think? My mother’s family is quiet proud of their heritage. Kron probably knows more details about the companionship than I. My mother refuses to answers my questions to this day. Catching him in a mood to tell me has not been easy….”she answered, lowering her voice some with the private nature of the conversation. When the the men’s strong voices lifted towards her, she would dart her eyes in their direction for a moment to see which man it might have been speaking with anger.
[2019/04/08 18:11] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): quite*

[2019/04/08 18:13] Latha (elise.larimore): This seemed to satisfy Latha. “Then that is all well, Swindle.” She dearly loved the kajira’s kal-da, took it, breathed in it’s aroma and took a sip. “Don’t let the food burn.” She turned back to Zaida. “Well, there is a lot to learn to work in the inn. I suppose I could teach you if you are serious. But you would have to ask the High Council to change caste and then seek the merchants’ approval. Being careful with the bowl, Latha stood. “And as for Kron … perhaps one day he’ll tell you.” As Latha thought about it, she remembered some of Kron’s words, but she wasn’t about to disabuse Zaida of the notions she had. “If you’ll excuse me, I need to see to the overnight guests.” She headed up the stairs, giving Trent and Alex and Patrice a nod of goodbye as she went.

[2019/04/08 18:14] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me fought the urge to jump as the palm slams against the table a bit too hard, jostling the items that sat upon it. “Mind yourself.” He speaks lowly and stands. “Patrice.” He breathes, looking over her dress and finding her fetching, on this rare occasion. “Dinner will be along, please join us.” He stayed standing a moment, gripping his hands into fists. “Why ask me if I’ve been to a tavern, when you know you’d have seen me there.” He backhands. “Leave the forge in that state, project of not…” He lets that threat trail off. “You best fall in line.” It was something their father had said often, something that’d been ingrained.

[2019/04/08 18:16] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me stood as Patrice joined the table, murmuring a Tal. His head jerked back when Alex backhanded him though. He turns steel blue eyes back to him slowly, all the anger building up again in his shoulders, and when he said that phrase. That. Phrase. His lip curled too. “Maybe it is you that best fall in line … brother,” no where in the history of the world has “brother” sounded more like “asshole.”

[2019/04/08 18:16] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me chuckled and turned on her heel, finding comfort in the familiarity of serving the redhead her favorite drink. Scurried back to the kitchen, checking the meat once more, splashed some wine into the pan and then slid it into the oven for the finishing touch. The apples were ready, drained and then whisked into a lumpy puree which was then strained before being ladled onto the side of each plate. A healthy dose of root vegetables, and then a few broiled suls, sprinkled with salt and a dollop of butter. Pulled the tarsk from the oven and set two of the large portions of single-boned meat. Carried the heavy tray, seemingly oblivious to the tension in the room. “Food!” she sang out happily, placing the offerings onto the table. “Who wants pan-seared tarsk chops, vegetables with butter?!”

[2019/04/08 18:18] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): /me pushed herself to her feet, “I will see myself around the place and try to get a feel for things!” she offered, trying to be useful, and adding, “I don’t think it will be an issue, the woman of the caste is mad in the head, and thinks me spy already. She is ready with her boot…”she said with a little laugh. This would be interesting, she was not trained in anything domestic besides arranging flowers. “Thank you, Stepmother. Be well!”

[2019/04/08 18:20] Latha (elise.larimore): /me froze at the foot of the stairs, every muscle in her back going rigid. “Latha. My name is Latha.” Then she was gone.

[2019/04/08 18:22] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me almost jumps out of her seat at the slam of his hands to the table. “Alexan…” She swallows back a squeak and it stops right there not daring to say what it was she was going to. Green eyes move from brother to brother not knowing what it was she had waltzed in on but found herself grabbing one of the spoons on her belt. But when the kajira came over with what smelled so good she was quick to point to this side of the table and mouthed ‘Over here!” to her at once.

[2019/04/08 18:26] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me felt his back go rigid when the man tried to pull rank and how he regarded him. He didn’t do anything wrong!! His knuckles went white and he found himself side stepping in front of his slave who jolted him, making him jerk at her loud proclamation of food. “Serve my companion.” He speaks to Swindle before his hand moves to Trent to point right at his chest, not touching. “You left the forge in a havoc. What are you doing? There’s metal that will take hours and days to purify now.” He snarls at him, voice raising a decibel. “Take responsibility for your wrong doings!”

[2019/04/08 18:28] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me side steps the slave and gets in his brother’s face, almost. His finger is pushed back into his chest, not touch yet either but he growls. “I can leave the forge in any manner I so choose!” His brows lifted though, because he -really- did not recall leaving it a shambles. Which is not a good sign, either someone had come in and done something or he was losing his marbles. Both cases were bad but in Trent’s current state of mind he was not about to slow down. “Purify it then,” he says all too flippantly and pokes his brother’s chest lightly.

[2019/04/08 18:28] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me comes down stairs at the sounds of angry voices and observes for a moment from the bottom of the stairs.

[2019/04/08 18:29] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me jumped, obviously having missed that the lady had entered, gave her a big grin as though she didn’t have spoons at the ready. “Well greetings to you Mistress.” she says happily, moving at her direction. “I have seared tarsk chops, along with some vegetables and hard-larma puree. I um … didn’t bring you a drink but if you just tell me what it is you like, I can get it immediately.” She nodded, offering one of the plats and some utensils to the baker. Glanced over when the metalworker commanded her to do exactly what she had been doing, but otherwise steers right clear out of whatever drama was unfolding there. Seems Pat had saved her from being stepped on, and possibly caught in the middle of the squabble.

[2019/04/08 18:34] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me’s hand reaches out to Alexander as if her touch might calm him in the least bit but as the men got into each other’s faces she was quick to blurt out, “Please.. Alexander, Trentan. Please sit. Doesn’t this smell.. just .. ” It was a lost cause trying to talk to them and the only thought now she had was to save the food that smelled so heavenly. With the spoon in hand she tapped the right side of her for the slave to move to getting her even more out of the way. “Drink.. yes… ummm.. just wait.” She couldn’t stop staring at what was going on and the drink just wasn’t what was first on her mind. “This isn’t like the two of you. Please! You are brothers!” Her words coming out very heartfelt and almost frantic.

[2019/04/08 18:35] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me observes the High caste woman enter and breaks her gaze from the ‘discussion’ that she has been watching intently. “Tal Lady, may I be of any assistance to you.” She offers a friendly smile in contrast to the somewhat heated exchange.

[2019/04/08 18:36] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me raises his brows, heat beginning to radiate off him and his hands were shoving his brother’s shoulders before he knew what was happening. “You can do what you like?” He snaps, his whole body moving right into the man, anger falling off him in waves. He couldn’t believe how flippant, how he didn’t care about their caste, their lives to such a degree. Alex was furious. They’d been breaking their own backs to make a comfortable life in Svago and he’d stopped going to the tavern even! He’d pounded out five thousand and something nails, more because he couldn’t count that high and blood rushed into his ears, pounding his pulse against his ear drums. Before he even knew it himself, he was swining his left fist right at his brother’s cheek.

[2019/04/08 18:38] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me had turned towards the Lady and nodded, trying to regain his composure. She was right, and not the first time someone has observed he was not acting himself and his brows touched together. He took a deep breath and that was when he became aware of his brother’s fist aiming for his cheek. It connected soundly and his head jerked back. He gasped and collected himself. When he turned back to his brother, the disgust on his face was probably more than a blow than any punch he could return. That was until these words, “Ah. Now, you are speaking Father’s language.”

[2019/04/08 18:39] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me would have surely died of shock, because a spoon was drawn and it hit something other than her. Not to mention, she was being moved out of harms way. It seemed Alex was right, food was the secret to keeping Pat happy. Hmmm … “Yes Mistress,” she says softly, not wanting to interrupt further the brewing trouble between the usually peaceful family. Visibly flinched when the first blow landed, and she set the tray well away. Mouth fell open in obvious shock, not knowing what to do in the slightest. She wanted to go to Alex, to do something — anything … but the lady told her to position and so there she stayed, looking back and forward like it were a ping pong match.

[2019/04/08 18:41] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me steps forward as soon as the blow is sent, “Sirs!” She demands in a tone that would surprise coming from a slight woman. “This establishment is not a tavern!” She almost spits the last word. “All are welcome at the round ship, but violence is not tolerated in this establishment.!” She speaks firmly but not rudely as though laying out the rules to children. “If you are going to brawl…” She points to the docks, “Take it outside.” She flashes an apologetic glance at the high caste woman.

[2019/04/08 18:43] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): /me had started to make herself busy, moving to speak with Onion about what made the inn work, but came to a pause. She glanced at the men just in time to see the fist meet the face of the other brother. “Oh, dear!” she whispered to herself, pulling at the ends of her sleeves nervously. She wondered if she should render the man help but he seemed to make a fast recovery from the blow.

[2019/04/08 18:44] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me screams soon as the punch landed, “ALEXANDER!!” Her voice going shrill not that he would care. “PLEASE!!!” She wouldn’t dare move to them when they were both being as they were. “You are brothers!!” She couldn’t help it though the food got her attention and she immediately snapped at the slave, “Bring it closer.” It was almost like a show and she needed a snack, it had been many many Ahn, more like two but she was starving. “Please take a breath! Sit down!” Her voice was serious and pleading at the same time. Part of her wanted to get up and come between them but she was also in self protect more.

[2019/04/08 18:44] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me stopped short when realization hit him like an ice bucket, the searing jolt rushing up the arm that’d swung at his brother with. He couldn’t believe he’d done that. But his brother’s words, the comparison to their father made him ignite once more. “You bastard” he snarls. “If you hadn’t of had ideas beyond your station and went off to companion outside of what he wanted I wouldn’t have bloody well turned out like this.” He snarls, the Inn keeper’s words falling on deaf ears. “The Priest Kings took care of that though didn’t they!?” He snaps out and his arm swung again.

[2019/04/08 18:46] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me’s the women’s pleas faded out and he focused on Alexander, when once more he is hit. His steel blue eyes widened at him. “How dare you,” he hissed. “How. Dare. You?!” He said again, his fingers curling into a fist. He went for him then like savage beast, hands moving of their own accord and tried to grapple him.

[2019/04/08 18:48] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me heard the woman shout in one moment, and then demand food in the next. Was barely able to snap out of it long enough to shift back toward the baker. She offered up the plate, pointing to each item again as she wafted it between the lady’s nose. Winced as she heard Meilin’s demands the men step outside, not even daring to look in that direction. There was no good that could come from this, well, except maybe scoring some brownie points with the brunette.

[2019/04/08 18:48] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me snarled now in anger as the men continued to brawl. “Stop this NOW!” she points to the door, “I will not tell you again!” Get out of this Inn if you cannot control your anger! or I will call the guard to throw you out!”

[2019/04/08 18:51] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me blindly grabs at the food and starts devouring it like it was her last meal. And the way this was going it very well could be in the inn at least. As the woman continued to scream at them and the hits kept coming the food quickly disappeared in her mouth as she shriveled back against the cushions. “TRENTAN!!!” Patrice was full out screaming between the bites, “STOP THIS NONSENSE AT ONCE!” Finally she realized what Alexander had said and all she could do was gasp loud choking on some small bit of food a moment. Looking at the slave she hacks and swings the spoon, ‘DRINK” her voice getting raspy as tears come to her eyes. “Har-ta!”

[2019/04/08 18:53] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me snarls right back at the man even as he came at him, losing footing he fell backwards upon the flat of his back, swinging at Trent’s face, every blow he landed sending shocks to his elbow. “You” He swings again. “Lazy” He swings once more. “Bosk” Swings. “Piece of SHIT” he wriggled under the man, trying to get free from the grappling and definitely not hearing anyone around them from the sounds of screaming.

[2019/04/08 18:54] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): /me gave a gentle swat to onion as she seemed to linger in front of her and blocked her view of the brothers. She was stunned and bit nervous, but even more was fascinated by what was happening. In the towers, she would hear gossip of what was happening and would eat it up just for a bit of reality beyond the ivory. One even lacked a shirt, like the tales of the drunk and disorderly men. Though, it was not over some wanton slave-girl like most of the stories she had been told. Zaida kept her eyes locked on the brothers as they continued to grapple.

[2019/04/08 18:54] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me moves immediately to summons the guards to deal with these bosk headed fools.

[2019/04/08 18:54] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me is on his chest in an instant pummeling at his face, “I left Venna for you. I stood in his way so many times. FOR YOU. AND YOU DARE BRING HER UP?” He’s shouting his head off at him. “NEVER. NEVER, ALEXANDAR.” He stops making any damn sense as he punches at him again.

[2019/04/08 18:56] Branwen (branwen.loring): /me was beyond merely miffed, she was a mix of dumbfounded and outright angry. Her steps would take her past the inn, and she would slow, curiosity outweighing her ire if even for an ehn, and she would approach to none-so-subtly eavesdrop. It’s then she hears the yelling, and reflex has her stepping towards the fray rather than away. But she hesitates, her words caught in her throat, and she watches, stunned…

[2019/04/08 18:58] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me jumped up to her feet when she was ordered to get water. She just so happened to brush right by the men, and paused by the pair of them. The next blow hand been thrown, and they were continuing to let things escalate. Rested a palm against Alex’s cheek, and then would try to stroke it lightly over his shoulder if he didn’t shake it off. Leaned in to press the lightest kiss to the palm of his hand, or attempted to anyways trying to sooth his temper or at the least distract him. Would move on toward the kitchen though for the drink unless he suddenly decided there were other things to do than fight

[2019/04/08 18:59] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me flounders under the onslaught of fists being pummeled into his face. His nose cracks harshly, stars spraying with blood into his vision, but even he keeps swinging with his left arm, his right slapping at the floorboards, seeking anything. A hit to his brow made his howl in rage, and he noticed his sight was blurring quickly enough. He takes hold of something, anything, and came up with a bowl that’d been knocked off the table earlier. He swings it, the clay thing smashing against his brother’s head and spits blood up at him. “Do me favors! You wanted under his thumb as much as I did!” He snarls out, trying to kick him back off.

[2019/04/08 19:00] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me returns with Octavius, she points angrily at the men. “These two fools.” She implores Octavius, “This is not a tavern… violence is not tolerated at the Inn. PLease Ocatvius…”

[2019/04/08 19:02] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me see stars exploding in his vision as the clay bowl connects and sends him whirling. The darkness threatens to envelop him and he falls to the side amongst the shatters of the bowl, narrowing missing the slave that passed them. He gasps on the floor, rolling to his side but his hand comes up and grips Alex’s toga. “It was always for you,” wheezes, “do not speak of her,” even in this state he’s still trying to tell him what to do. The tears on his face are not entirely from the physical pain.

[2019/04/08 19:02] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me coughs out the half chewed piece of food to send flying across the table. Hands cover her face as the fight amps up and blood starts to fly. Her mouth falls open letting out panicked screams, “STOP IT!! BOTH OF YOU!!” When the bowl is broken and pieces go flying she scoots back against the pillows and even uses one as a shield.

[2019/04/08 19:03] pokey Zebberman: /me walks in looking around wondering what was going on

[2019/04/08 19:04] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me moved on past the pair of them and into the kitchen. Looked up as the warriors arrived. Sighed long and hard suffering, having a feeling that someone was going to be spending the evening in jail, somewhere. Couldn’t help but snicker when the backer used a pillow as a shied.

[2019/04/08 19:04] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would enter the inn after the lady informs him on whats going ” gentlemen ” he would say to the two men, ” come we settle in the area, a way of honor and ill buy you both paga after”

[2019/04/08 19:04] TahliaBlue: /me had thought of relaxing at the Inn, but hearing and seeing an argument, she passes it and then stops a bit away. When others come and seems to try to calm things down, she slowly moves closer, curious as she is. Mumbles “This is supposed to be a pieceful city.”
[2019/04/08 19:04] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): Arena *

[2019/04/08 19:06] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me wheezes, upon his back and tries to collect where he was in everything. He’d felt a hand touch his bloody cheek but it didn’t stop him from rolling haphazardly towards the pull on his clothing and raise his fist high, bringing it down on his elder’s face. “You.” He breathes hard, his own blood coming down his lips and down his chin. “Liar.” He snaps and clasps his hand around the man’s throat, getting better leverage as he continues to pump his fist right into his brother’s face. “You, fucking liar.” He was exhausted, but if it were anyone else he’d be murderous. As it was he kept going.

[2019/04/08 19:07] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me step back out of the way, muttering to herself, about the damage and how much she would charge the two of them before any of the group set foot in this Inn again.

[2019/04/08 19:08] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me gasps with each blow, feeling his hand on his throat and looks up at him, opening steel blue eyes wide. “You know better,” he rasps. Somewhere Alex might but he lifts his arms defensively and gathering his strength he PUSHES. Oblivious to anyone else he simply tries to get his brother off of him, though he is not too careful about where and with what strength he attempts to toss him. On some level he realizes it is not him his brother is attacking but even then his own confused state make it difficult to get his bearings and his head pounded. He returns what blows he can but they are weakening.

[2019/04/08 19:09] Branwen (branwen.loring): /me glances briefly to the warriors as they enter the inn, but her attention soon returns to the Metal Workers, her expression unreadable, a muttered prayer to someone is offered. She fights the urge to call out, to add her wintry rasp to the confusion

[2019/04/08 19:09] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me poured some wine and delivered it back to Pat, taking the long way around this time. “Drink for you, Mistress,” she said, trying to tug the pillow out of the way long enough to serve it.

[2019/04/08 19:09] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would sign as he was ignored he would look at Pokey and nod his head and moves to break up the fight getting in the middle of them trying to pull Alexander off of Trentan

[2019/04/08 19:12] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me snarls at the slave, “No more food, or drink for any of them. If i catch you near that kitchen again before the damage is paid for, I will take it out of your hide girl! She takes in Alexander, Trentan, Patrice and Adayre in a baleful gaze. “You pay for the food and drink and the damage before yo set foot in this Inn again!”

[2019/04/08 19:12] Ashellia Thorne Ana’Bandit (ashellia): /me walked up behind the slave with the curly red hair and cleared my throat “Ahem.”

[2019/04/08 19:12] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me throws the pillow she was clinging to then grabs handfuls of food and throws it at them next. “STOP IT!!” She wouldn’t stop screaming and in her frantic state her hand flies back and knocks the offered cup from the slaves hand sending it flying over the pair of them. Spattering out with wine now dripping down her face she uses the back of her arm to wipe at the mess.

[2019/04/08 19:14] pokey Zebberman: /me moved closer as he watched the two men most times pokey would not get between brothers fighting but the Inn kept getting broken up : The Tavgern is more suited for this ” he chuckled

[2019/04/08 19:18] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me snarls and made another swing for the face under him, missing and slamming a fist in the floorboards beside the targeted head. He felt a man’s hands on him and brushes him away with an exhausted shove. “Stay out of it!” He growls out, but his fight was waning and he sat back with his chest heaving, kneeling over his own brother, bloody and worn. He’d turn a glare to the Inn keeper, or where he thought she was, and spit blood upon the floor before food began to be pelted at him.

[2019/04/08 19:19] Branwen (branwen.loring): /me had grown up in the north a rough and tumble place. Fist fights between men, and even brothers, were a part and parcel of growing up. Normally, such a thing wouldn’t phase her. But this was different, and she would step beside the tiny innkeeper, then placing herself between the woman and the brawling me

[2019/04/08 19:20] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me pelted with food and breathing hard, he tuned his head sharply at the last blow. He closes his eyes and tries to get his bearings, and what was happening. “Don’t bring her up again,” he hisses, his mind just going on and on like a broken jagged piece of glass that poked him again and again over this topic. That Alex had mentioned in the first place, AGAIN, was enough to make him ball up his fists and swing at him again, though now it was with much less power. “It’s not my fault….” he says in more pain than his bruised face can account for.

[2019/04/08 19:21] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me heard herself berated by an innkeeper who was not Latha, and then drenched in wine when Pat knocked it all over her. The redhead just sighed, grabbing up the vessel and offering Pat one of the rep cloths she had brought with the meal before. “Understood, Mistress,” Adayre would say to Meilin, probably looking a right mess with wine dripping down her nose and from scarlet locks. Glanced back to the baker. “Mistress, may I please be excused to clean up?”

[2019/04/08 19:21] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me shakes her head. “This nonsense has got to stop! You fools!’ She snarls at the two men. “The high caste are slowing buying us all out of the docks, and you two roll on the floor brawling with each other like idiot children!”

[2019/04/08 19:22] pokey Zebberman: ” OK Ok ” step forward looking to Octavius and nods ” You both could use time be hide bars to cool off?” move forward pokey being much larger then them but, they are metal workers he would not under guess them at all “

[2019/04/08 19:22] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): as he would be brushed off he stop an momoent and attempts giving Alexander a good kick just below the back of his knee. ” and would try for a head lock to follow through with.

[2019/04/08 19:25] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me disregards the rep cloth and uses the slave’s hair to clean off her hand, petting and getting all that was on the plate in the girl’s messy locks. “Do something.. though stay away from them.” Seeing the rep cloth now though she takes it from her and dabs at her face, the mess of food, blood and now wine all over as she looks around at the crowd that had gathered. She couldn’t believe she was about to say it but she did. “Lock em’ up!” It didn’t appear much was going to stop them from this fight.

[2019/04/08 19:26] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me felt one more blow and leans back, looking up to the ceiling and groaning. “Yea…yea.” He lifts himself up and stomps against his brother’s stomach, stumbling about and knocking over the contents on the table nearest him. He wasn’t drunk, but exhausted. He uses his sleeve to wipe blood off him and turns to regard just how many people had come to see that scene. “Entertained?” He asks sarcastically and holds up his arms. “Anyone else want some? I have plenty to give.” He snaps out, obviously not up for much else.

[2019/04/08 19:26] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me notes Branwen’s by her side, and gives a slight nod of acknowledgement and thanks,

[2019/04/08 19:27] Adayre (xxadayrexx): /me was now a napkin it seems, oh boy. Rose to her feet with about as much dignity as she could manage given her bedraggled looks. “Thank you Mistress,” she managed, not entirely sure what to do about the entire debacle and heads right out the door toward a bath. “Wish you all well,” she called out as though it were any other day in the inn.

[2019/04/08 19:28] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me groans in pain when his stomach is attacked. The breath knocked out of him. He is suddenly aware of the Warriors, the crowd. His rapid heart not slowing down. Alexander is on a roll and he wheezes, trying to grab around his knees and pull him back down. Trying to prevent him from fighting the Warriors, or something. He too felt blood coming from his lips and he shakes.

[2019/04/08 19:29] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): /me glanced about at the man’s invitation. It was a gaggle of women that seemed to join them to watch. Was the man wishing the women to fight him? Nope. She took a step back, wanting one of whatever that was. She wondered if she should push the crowd back at least, and use her healer skills to attend to the man. But the woman had warned her not to practice the craft, so what could she do?

[2019/04/08 19:29] pokey Zebberman: /me would grab Trentan he place his hand to the man belt guarding against the man grabbing his weapons with both of his hand he would lift the man up to looks to Octavius ” Pull him I got this one ” pulling up Trentan lifting him to his feet and pulling him back away from his brother

[2019/04/08 19:31] Branwen (branwen.loring): /me would stand between Meilin and the men, looming over the tiny woman, her gaze flicking to Alexander. Her eyes narrow, yes both of them, and she lifts her chin “Hardly” she offers, then sighs as one of them seems determined to continue “Trentan, enough. Breathe.” she says firmly, though not unkindly, her rasping voice nonetheless managing to carry well, raised in the noisy longhalls

[2019/04/08 19:31] Meilin (kimmy2501): /me steps forward when the man threatens the crowd, “The magistrate will hear of all of this, and you will pay for the damage you have done! Get out of this Inn immediately and do not return until you have paid for the mess you have caused!” She states in an icy tone.

[2019/04/08 19:31] Ashellia Thorne Ana’Bandit (ashellia): “I see. Well as you don’t know where he is, I’ll give him two more days to show himself here. You see we don’t allow slaves to roam without owners here. If in two days he is not here and you are, you MUST go to a slave house by Svago law. I have a slave house here.. I should just take you right now

[2019/04/08 19:33] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would put the man in a head lock as he was looking over at the people, ” you’re done. you struggle anymore will be stabbed, i think we both don’t want that to happen “he would say to Alexander.

[2019/04/08 19:35] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me found his own chin raising with Branwen’s and scowls at the InnKeeper. “I’ll speak to Latha.” He says spitefully before he was found in a headlock and snarls jerking at the hold. “Stabbed?” He laughs wildly. “Go on, kill someone of your own Home Stone, that’ll do wonders for your reputation” He just wouldn’t shut up tonight.

[2019/04/08 19:35] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me couldn’t believe it when the slave wandered off to take care of herself. It wouldn’t be something she would forget and continued to dab and wipe at her face. Hands brush food off her dress as she rises but remains in the corner of the inn well out of the way. Hearing the warrior as he puts her companion in a headlock the panic comes over her once more, ‘He’s a citizen of Svago! Arrest him just don’t stab him!”

[2019/04/08 19:35] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me has never once reached for his weapon throughout this exchange and he did not do so now. He groaned when he is hefted up and he struggles against the larger Warrior, as if he could get away. He’s still going for his brother but to attack more or try to stop him is difficult to ascertain. He heard bits and pieces of the conversation about him, and he winces again with the pain he is carrying, both physically and emotionally.

[2019/04/08 19:39] pokey Zebberman: /me lifting the man as his feeling him waving his legs and arms not really sure what he was trying to do ” yes a night in the jail will give you both time to think of what you both have done and what you both have been to each other your hole life not what ever your fighting about is not worth all this ” pulling the man with his arms swinging about ” Men will be men no one is getting stabbed ” laughs

[2019/04/08 19:40] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he smirked, ” doesnt matter to me good Sir, i am giving you the option to go peacefully, its your choice. ” as he holds the grip tight around his neck. pushing him along

[2019/04/08 19:41] Zaida Elenora Tower (ada.opaque): /me slipped away from the scene as the onlookers continued to build. Her own words about family and the bonds weighing heavier on her heart now.

[2019/04/08 19:41] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me chokes a bit iin the tight hold and wheezes as he’s dragged along

[2019/04/08 19:41] Branwen (branwen.loring): /me looks down at Mei and rests a soothing, heavily-scarred hand on the woman’s arm “I will help you clean up” she offers, then looks over to Patrice, stepping closer to the baker “Are you alright?” she asks gently

[2019/04/08 19:42] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me goes limp and then panics when he sees the cage, “Wait! NO!” But to no avail as he is shoved inside. He pulls himself up by the bars, shaking and bleeding. “Don’t.”

[2019/04/08 19:43] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would push Alexander in the cell ” now if you wish to keep fight each other, go head, my job was only to keep you from fighting in the inn” he chuckled. but i wouldnt i am sure Pokey wont be to happy”

[2019/04/08 19:43] pokey Zebberman: /me pulls the man along hold on to the man roughly then pushes the man one another ” her her ” gruffs some ” nothing like a night on the town ” coughs ” have you men been drinking the Tavrn just reopened today ” smiled

[2019/04/08 19:44] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me leans heavily against the wall as he was put into the cell, breathing deeply. He looks to Octavius and glares at him. “What do they feed you?” He snaps.

[2019/04/08 19:44] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me grips the bars breathing fast and hard. “Don’t do this,” he wheezes, his panic apparent as he looks from one Warrior to another.

[2019/04/08 19:45] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me snorts at his brother’s discomfort. “Don’t worry, I won’t choke you to death…tonight.” He allows.

[2019/04/08 19:45] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): ” years of fighting wars in the north will put some meat on you, but you can take a hit” he pulls a pipe

[2019/04/08 19:47] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me chuckles at Octavius and wipes a bit of blood off his face. “Was taught from a child how to.” He talks about taking a hit and keeps an eye on his brother, nose burning something fierce.

[2019/04/08 19:47] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me shoots his brother the most hurt glance, as if he was afraid of him, which even after all that he really wasn’t. He slipped to the left and grips the bars, pressing his forehead to the iron and tries to breathe evenly.

[2019/04/08 19:47] pokey Zebberman: ” Warrior blood we have a blood line of warrior bred to be much larger than the rest of the goreans ” looks to Octvius ” Aye fighting and training to be fighters does this some”

[2019/04/08 19:49] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): ” aye, fought with my brothers as well, but i think i taken more hits from “twin” puff on the pipe some herbs he gotten from some savages in north, good relaxing effect, offers it to Trentan

[2019/04/08 19:51] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he chuckled” aye Brother, i think i know more fighting moves then word i know how to spell “

[2019/04/08 19:51] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me shakes his head and instead draws his hammer, beating it on the bars in pure panic. Yet this hammer was made for fighting and not bending iron and it does very little.
[2019/04/08 19:52] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “Let me out, let me out, let me out,” he chants, near crazy with fear and panic.

[2019/04/08 19:54] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me sighs and takes off his sword, swinging it right through the bars to clatter near the chair. “If the northern men are as large as Branwen the grocer, I’d die before I got a swing in.” He comments, before his fingers moved over his nose with a wince.

[2019/04/08 19:54] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): was tired of the man freaking out, ” DUDE CHILL THE FUCK OUT” he yelled with his deepest War Cry” would probably echo tot he inn

[2019/04/08 19:54] pokey Zebberman: /me steps back ” I never said you two are weak swinging your tools to bend metal take great strength but without the fire i fear your hammer will only make noise this night cool off for the night i let you out in the morning or when i awake understand men ?”

[2019/04/08 19:55] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me nods to Pokey, and gestures to the bed. “You’re on the floor, Brother.” He says the word like he’d have said a curse to him.

[2019/04/08 19:55] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me nervously heads over to the building, complete disbelief washing over her as she fidgets with her hands. At the door way she doesn’t know what to do then heard the cry of someone and it made her scream and jump. “Oh goodness!” she shrieks innocently and pops he head in the door. “Is this.. the jail?”

[2019/04/08 19:56] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me looks up at the Warrior stunned for a few Ihn, then drops his hammer. On the other side of the bars. He grips the bars again and tries to control his breathing, ignoring Alex for now. He heard Patrice arrive and he just stares.

[2019/04/08 19:57] pokey Zebberman: /me looks to the women ” This is one of the jails the city has another one in the upoper city for high caste

[2019/04/08 19:58] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): he would step closer taking the hammer, ” Glad you can see things my way” and goes to to put it on the weapons rack, ” other brother, give me yours as well, “

[2019/04/08 20:00] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me let’s out a nervous laugh, “Well the two buffoons you arrested are certianly not high class coughs caste I mean! One of them is my companion. Will he be here all night?” She gulps and couldn’t help but look around the doorway into the room trying to spot the pair of wannabe warriors.

[2019/04/08 20:00] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me gestures to where he had already slid it through the bars and had landed near the chair. “Patrice?” He looks up and raises his brows. “Awww…you do care.”

[2019/04/08 20:01] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me shaking hands move down to his belt, for in a few Ehn he could re-rivet these bars, and he is suddenly realizing they are in enough trouble as it is. The temptation would be too great, he knew for this small enclosed space was not wearing on his nerves very well. He drops it too on the other side of the bars. Still, he tries to bring in ragged breath after ragged breath. He heard Patrice too but he can not see her. He wipes at the blood on his cheek.

[2019/04/08 20:02] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): takes the sword, and leans it on the rack,” looks to pokey, i have to speak with the inn Keeper really quick”

[2019/04/08 20:02] pokey Zebberman: ” You two are the New Metal workers are you not ,” looks back to the women who was talking ” the new building you have is a fine new building what is it your fighting about as lower caste that is a nice up grade ” looks to OctVIUS ” NOW WE NEED TO DO PAPER WORK A report not paper work paper work yes they will not be let out until all the paper work is done”

[2019/04/08 20:05] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me blows blood out of his nose and sighs. “A family matter.” He answered cryptically and slides down to sit on the ground, back pressed to the wall.

[2019/04/08 20:06] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me jumps back out of the way as the one warrior came barreling past her. She steps in just a few hort more to see the damage they had done to each other. “I care. I care about the fools you have made of yourselves. The inn keeper has banned me for simply being there with the two of you.” Her jaw clenches seeing the both of them there and steps closer. “What has gotten into the two of you??” Like a mother she starts wagging her finger at them both as if they were children. “Look at you!” Seeing all the blood covering Alexander’s face her heart just stopped a moment as she dug deep into her pouch and pulled out a rep cloth and tore it in half now holding it out for both brothers.

[2019/04/08 20:07] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me sinks to the ground, all the air coming out of him in a whoosh. He cradles his stomach, and wipes blood at his lips again. He would not look at Alexander, and he tries to control his panic. His shaking fingers reach for the rep cloth Patrice offers when she appears. Steel blue eyes clouded still but the anger is seeping from him rapidly.

[2019/04/08 20:09] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me almost didn’t want to take the rep cloth when the woman came a nagging. He did take it and pressed it to the bottom of his nose and grunts in response to her. He was watching his brother and the panic he was all but holding restrained. “panic what you like, you aren’t getting out anymore than I am.” He snorts, then winces.

[2019/04/08 20:11] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me turns back to the warrior at the desk and fingers the pouch hanging from her belt, ‘Is there anything that can be done to keep them here for the night. I fear they will just start this all up again if they are released.” As her hand moves around the sound of coin jingling could be heard.

[2019/04/08 20:13] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “I am not a liar,” he says to Alexander, this time with a more normal tone. He stares at the bars. He wipes the blood off his face with the rep cloth. When he heard the coins jingle his brows shot up again. He tries to control his shaking and ground himself into -this- moment and not whatever memory of enclosed cages or spaces this jail might be bringing him. Besides, it was not too small, and despite everything that had just happened, Alex being there was more of a help than a hindrance.

[2019/04/08 20:13] pokey Zebberman: /me looks up from writitng the report ” I so dislike writing reports ” grumbles not paying much attention to them speaking

[2019/04/08 20:14] Alexander Hayford (hereforfuntimes): /me tips his head back and closes his eyes, turning to nap. “Liar.” He mutters to just send another jolt home to his brother.

[2019/04/08 20:15] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): “Sir…” she says in a louder tone. “I don’t mean to interrupt your .. reports.” She tried hard to keep the surprised look from her face, “Is there anything that can be done to keep them here … all night perhaps?” This time she shook the coin pouch on her belt to get his attention.

[2019/04/08 20:16] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me puts his head in his hands and weeps, openly, though quietly.

[2019/04/08 20:18] pokey Zebberman: me rolls up the scroll can i help you ” smiles now ready to talk

[2019/04/08 20:19] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me blows out a deep breath, “How much is it going to cost to keep them in there for the night?”

[2019/04/08 20:19] pokey Zebberman: You want to pay to keep them in all night ” smiled looking at her as he rub his chin then look to the two men ” Most with to buy their way out not in?”
[2019/04/08 20:19] pokey Zebberman: wish *

[2019/04/08 20:21] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me explains, “If they are released too soon… I fear they will just start this back up at home. And then I could be hurt.. or worse. Please.” She already pulled out several coppers and slide them across the desk towards him.

[2019/04/08 20:22] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me looks way up at him now feeling a bit worried.

[2019/04/08 20:23] pokey Zebberman: /me looks the the two men then back to the women ” I will not let them out I need not your coin i just had a new home built where the old Black smith shop so i am happy they built a new shop so i could move to where the old one was as a high caste i will not take coin for you i am Honorable
[2019/04/08 20:24] pokey Zebberman: /me pushes the coin back to her ” your safe for tonight i hope you do not live with both of them ” laughs

[2019/04/08 20:26] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me gathers up the coin and smiles, “Indeed I do. As that one there…” she points to Alexander, “Is my companion. At least tonight I will have a good nights sleep. Thank you, Sir. And congratulations on your new home.” She looks back to the pair of brothers and tsks softly. She wasn’t trying to be mean but they needed a harsh dose of reality right now.

[2019/04/08 20:29] Patrice Bennett (fatbakerpat): /me pockets the coins and turns towards the door, eyes glancing back at the pair of them, “Talk with out your fists. There will be NO fighting when you come home.” She wasn’t always this bossy with them but right now she was hungry and had wine all over her dress. “Thank you again, Warriors.”

[2019/04/08 20:29] pokey Zebberman: ” they seem much better now a good night in jail will do men good to sleep off an night of drinking and fighting “

[2019/04/08 20:30] pokey Zebberman: ” YOu should see my new Home here in Svago the Upper caste wished i live in a better home than i was ” laughs

[2019/04/08 20:32] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): ” So Metal workers are you “

[2019/04/08 20:32] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me lifts his face from his hands and looks up at the Warrior. He nods slowly.
[2019/04/08 20:37] pokey Zebberman: /me grunts ” You can shapen my swords?”
[2019/04/08 20:37] pokey Zebberman: sharpen *

[2019/04/08 20:39] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): ” so when you guys are better i would like to see your work” i am in the market for about 1000 Swords”

[2019/04/08 20:39] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “Yes,” he replies simply, focusing on the other large Warrior. “When not in jail…” he says this un-ironically. His brows lift sudden jolted out of whatever fear is gripping him, “One thousand?” he confirms.
[2019/04/08 20:40] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “Sab carries a sword we made for him,” he remembers.

[2019/04/08 20:40] pokey Zebberman: /me Places his hand to the hilt of his swords then draw ready to fight

[2019/04/08 20:41] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): ” aye One Thousand, need to see my cohorts are well armed, new guys need something to swing when goign to fight the torvies “

[2019/04/08 20:42] pokey Zebberman: ” Well i need sleep now ” places his hand to Octavius shoulder ” We seem to keep finding ourselves standing next to each other”

[2019/04/08 20:42] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): /me scrambles back from the bars for an Ihn before he realizes that likelihood of the Warrior attacking him was extremely low. He nods slowly to Octavius, “We can do that…” he says voice shaky but he’s grounded now in the moment between the attention of the two warriors. He hears Alex’s breath deepen as he sleeps.

[2019/04/08 20:43] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): ” indeed Frien, i hope it keeps up, ” oh heres your cut for helping ” he hands the man one sliver.

[2019/04/08 20:44] pokey Zebberman: me takes the silver from the man “: thank you ” winks as he walks away flipping the coin

[2019/04/08 20:45] Octavius Junius Spire (xreds): looks back to Trentan, ” if you are good enough ill see you have jobs

[2019/04/08 20:46] Trentan Hayford (trentanhayford): “Thank you, Warrior,” he says faintly.

Administrator William Carver addresses crowd to open Carnival

3/9/2019 – Carnival Opening Remarks

William Carver: Arrived at the stage and picked the spot right in the middle of the troupe, what man wouldn’t want to be surrounded by slave girls and then looking at the ones who had gathered for the opening he would lift his voice and start “ Welcome to the 4th Annual Svago Carnival.   This exciting event is proof that we the people of Svago are a united people who love their Home Stone and each other. The efforts so many have put forth their time their energy is what drives this Carnival and Svago.

There will be many events for you to observe and take part in.  I encourage you to do both as often as you are able as this is the best way to show your appreciation of the efforts of those who sponsor events. Sponsors and event host as is the proud tradition of Svago cover the full gamment of Castes in our Isle of Svago. ”  I paused before I would continue

Kaellaed Rhode: /me rubs his neck from looking about at all the fascinating gowns and headgear of the ladies.

William Carver: I glanced about at those already dressed for the day and with a smile on my lips I would carry on A part of the tradition of Carnival is not only the games and shows but the elaborate costumes worn by the free.  It is a time that yes Free Women you can have a bad hair day it will be to your benefit! Single Free Men you may want to get a good look at some of these women before you take part in the Game of Favors. ” before I paused to let the crowd gaze at each other

Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford Resident): /me clapped his shoulder, one of his favorites games, indeed.  Steel blue eyes moved over the crowd as he grinned and took another small sip of his wine.

Jessilyn Bernard (Jessilyn Erin): /me listens to her papa speak, nearly bouncing in place. The feel of carnival was something Jess always enjoyed!

William Carver: Then with some excitement in my voice as I spoke The Carnival is a time for not only Svago but all of Gor to come together as a community to spend a hand enjoying conversations, drink, food and games.  We want everyone to have a good time but remember the laws of Svago still stand our Warriors will be patrolling the streets in conjunction with our Magistrates and Praetors. So I now invite you now to join in the revially of Carnival as I declare this the 4th Annual Svago Carnival OPEN! “  William proclaimed

Niall Carver (Bastnine Resident): /me on the other hand was always wary that any FW might be related to him…  He’d clap none the less, but it was more subdued

Trentan Hayford (TrentanHayford Resident): /me cheers most enthusiastically.

Velleity Dryden (Emma Haskell): /me gave the woman next to her a brief nudge with her elbow to draw her attention – not immediately recognising who it was. She asked regardless, ‘What is a game of favours?’, it not being something that Velleity had ever heard of before and would proceed to watch Domino expectantly whilst awaiting some form of answer.

Elysia Turia Ambrosius (spiritsandwine Resident): threw her hands up and tossed come confetti!

Kaellaed Rhode: /me pats his bribe bag to get bail from any possible infractions that may be noticed.
