The Winter Masquerade
A mysterious invitation finds its way to you. This parchment is of the finest quality, and the red wax seal has the appearance of a chrysanthemum in bloom.
Dear Friend of the Empire,
The snows have begun on the Isle of Kortos, and now is the perfect opportunity for us to enjoy the warmth of each other's company. At week's end, Chrysanthemum House in the Petal District will host a Winter Masquerade, and a night of music, dancing, beauty, and companionship will commence.
As is appropriate for a Winter Masquerade, we will all be enjoying a bit of fun. The enclosed card is both your ticket to the event and the beginning of our little game. Present your costumed self and your enclosed card, and the Master of Games will present you a choice. Keep your wits about you, and you will find yourself at the beginning of a night to remember.
Your friend and hostess,
-Lady Gabrielle d'Apcher
The Winter Masquerade has begun! This is an unofficial in-character event open to characters of the Taldor faction. Invitations to characters of other factions can be arranged by contacting me by Personal Message. Post here with your character's arrival at the Masquerade, along with his or her meeting with the Master of Games in the front hall of Chrysanthemum House, a private residence in the Petal District of Absalom. Also, to join the night's party games, send a Personal Message to this alias with your PC's true identity, costumed alias, and Perform (dance) modifier, and I will reply with a description of your card. I will try to make myself available during the day on the Paizo Chat at chat.dmtools.org, for a faster communication method.
This card your character has received is the first component in the night's games of wit and deduction. On its face is a name and a number; a choice to be made will reveal itself upon meeting the Master of Games. Those who show superior wit and sportsmanship will find themselves rewarded. Also, as with any forum-based game like this one, a brisk pace of posting will be much appreciated by all involved. As this event blurs the lines between a typical forum and a Play By Post game, a posting rate of at least once a day for players of the forum-based party game is expected.
Best of luck to all of you, and may the Eternal Rose smile upon your costumed endeavors.
