Sovereign Court

A surprised look of sudden revelation flashes across Haywood's face for a moment at Cloren's statement of her origins. He addresses her in Thassilonian.

In Thassilonian:
"Thou art a disciple of Lust? Dost thou hail from Eurythnia?"

"That truly is fascinating. I arranged my opportunity to learn Thassilonian magic by doing a number of favors for a rather lonely and unpleasant Venture Captain. I knew that she'd delved an ancient, top secret site somewhere in Varisia to obtain this knowledge, but I'd always assumed it was from a tome or some more esoteric artifact. I had no idea they pulled a PERSON out of there."
He chuckles before adding again in Thassilonian,
Spoiler:
"Perhaps my secret knowledge came from thee."

He does take the opportunity to examine Vulpina's firearm. "This is almost delicate in its form. Done by a skilled hand, for a skilled hand. I do not envy any man caught in it's sights, as he'll surely soon be less of one." He gives Vulpina a quick wink and hands the pistol back to her.

Haywood laughs heartily at Cloren's teasing. "My, but you are a charming one, my lady. You refer to my marriage? Betrothal doesn't have to be a set of shackles, if you find a partner that you can share..." He catches Marcia's eye across the party and they share a conspirational look. "..hobbies with. Speaking of which, I would love to immortalize your likeness in...hmm, let's say obsidian? That would begin to capture the sparkle I see. But yes, you have some skill in magic? how did you come by it?"

Sovereign Court

"Most people have the good sense not to go loosing them off willy-nilly. Loosing? Shooting. My primary consternation, as well as most of my companions', was that magic simply does not work in Alkenstar. We were left to our wit and charm to win the day. But in the surrounding Mana Wastes, magic behaves....unpredictably. I lost my friend dragon here for the better part of a day when he became smaller than I could see. One spell brought an elephant with it into a cramped tunnel. Two of my companions swapped bodies for a time. And if you're truly interested, I'll tell you about the enormous purple worm. Ahh, what a delightful trip."

Sovereign Court

Haywood mingles over towards Cloren and gives her a gracious smile and bow. "Good evening, are you enjoying the party? My wife and I would like to invite you to our afterparty, if you can make it. She would just love to see you there,, and it's bound to be exciting considering how beautiful this party is. Yourself included of course. Or if not the afterparty, perhaps the Frolic in the Fountains we'll be hosting in a fortnight."

He perks up at Vulpina's conversation. "I'm sorry, did I hear the mention of guns? Frightful contraptions, those are, although I certainly appreciate the artistry of their design. My last mission took me to Alkenstar, and it seemed that everyone important had one. Now THAT was a farce. Our Venture Captain decided to send four wizards and a cleric,accompanied by only two more martially inclined fellows to the Mana Wastes. You wouldn't believe the havoc that ensued."

Sovereign Court

A new couple strides into the soiree. The lady is unmistakably a Blakros, in an electric blue dress that swishes and Sparks with her every move. The man is Kellid, with dark red hair slicked back and a finely trimmed goatee. His finery is cut to showcase musculature on his torso that is too perfect to be real. A faerie dragon flits about him, occasionally landing on his shoulder for a moment only to fly off a second later to indulge in mischief.

The couple saunters up to the Lady Vulpina, bows, and the man reaches out to kiss Vulpina's hand. [b]"I see that the Lady of Chrysanthemums has blessed this gathering tonight, my lady. Allow me to introduce my darling wife, Marcia Blakros, and myself, Lord Haywood of House Blakros.
Perhaps I'll see you at the afterparty "

Kn: Local or Nobility 10:
Lord Haywood is known as an indulgent playboy, often making incredible if provocative sculptures of his lovers. He and his wife host wild, libertine parties from their townhouse in the Foreign Quarter.

The artistic pursuits are as noble as they come. Surely a shining beacon of elegance like yourself can recognize the value of artistry and those who create it, for what could make the world a better place than bringing yet more beauty into it? I have created amazing works of both song and erotic sculpture, and will continue to hone those skills even as I expand my capacity for such artistry. Perhaps I will practice painting, or dance next? Perhaps you could join me, you look like you'd be an entertaining companion in such pursuits.

Knowledge local tends to come up much more frequently, but diplomacy can also often make a good substitute with Gather Information (although not always). Knowledge nobility does come up occasionally for faction reasons, and even less frequently for mission reasons, but it does come up. It's definitely worth putting at least one rank in each if you think you can afford it.

If you're feeling a sensation of burning force, a visit to your cleric should clear that right up. I'd recommend the Calistrians, they have a great deal of experience and they're very discreet. *ahem* I'm Lord Haywood, and sweet Shelyn has seen fit to guide me to the path of love. As the Thassilonian Sins are but corrupted forms of their great virtues, yes? I, then, am a student of the purest form of Love.
