As Deadly As Nightshade- Play Thread, Authorized Players Only!

---> Canal City Prelude

This is the night the final night in the racous festival known as Nights of Saint Gaul , for three days and four nights the entire city has been caught in this feverish tribute to Saint Gaul, the God of Commerce and Pleasure in a few moments the display of fireworks shall begin, bombards from Silver Hill fire the shells into the heavens lighting up the sky with brilliant reds, yellows, greens, and violets...

---> Unknown

"At last, the final night of this accursed festival. The stars are right and our timetable has been set. Soon the will of our ancient master shall be made manifest and the dreams of Ichrond shall be realized! Be wary my minions, though our time is soon upon us, the stones tell me of people in the city. Their power is nothing to ours but the silver cord of fate leads to them and where the Old Powers are concerned, anything is possible...

---> Canal City, Millennium Quarter, The Peabody Hotel

On the third floor of Canal City's premeir hotel, several of the rooms were occupied by various newcomers to the city, all awakened by the fireworks. Besides their own possessions they have a large number of gaudy glass bead necklaces, feathers, masks, comical hats, and jester wands. There's not a soul among them who can remember the recent events from the past four days very clearly, just fleeting images of blood and glass, the crack of a gunshot. The memory of a dying man's words...

"Gods help us! After all these years, it wasnt who we thought! Finally the truth...awakened and I cant do a thing to stop it! Who could have known, is there not good amongst them? It does not matter now, he can still do great evil after all this time, the city is proof of that. You must warn my friend, Priest! Tell him, It was Davenorn...*cough* Daven..."

(OOC: This is the starting point all characters start off at the Peabody. The staff do not know who paid for your rooms, only that they are paid through to end of the week. Do as you will, converse amongst yourselves, exlpore, try to participate before the festival ends, whatever...)

Listening to the booms of the fireworks, Akari puts a silver feathered wolven mask over her own wolf face. Donning a black cloak to go with her black pants and silver shirt she opens her door, locks it behind her, and walks down the steps and out into the crowds. Looking up she sees the fireworks, watches them for a few minutes,a dn then walks down street.

She says nothing as she walks making almost no sound except for the sound of her claws clicking a bit against the street. She looks around at various shops, but stops at none.

"Money is not to be spent on such foolish things," she mutters.

Eventually, she finds her way onto a roof top, where she sits and watches the fireworks.

"Eh wot, a visitor to Join ol' Egsby?"
A young chimney sweep sat down next to Akari, though his clothes were filthy he had managed to keep the soot off his face. He watched the fireworks light up the night.
"Dont trouble yeself none Miss, just watching the fireworks. The Millennial is something aint it? Three 'undred years of history this burg has. This is a right proper place to be, Millennium Quarter. It almost brings a tear to my eye. Ah well, no rest for the wicked!"
The young lad resumed with his labors.

She watches the young man come and go with amusement. Her tail wags slightly as she snickers.
"What an interseting place this is."
Gettign up she moves to another roof, then to anothera nd then she lands in an alley and makes her way into the crowd.
~No rest for the wicked? Heh, our work is never done.~
Snickering, she dissapears into the crowed streets.

---> Canal City, Millennium Quarter, Centennial Square

The last of the fireworks were accompanied by a volley from the Canal City Police Mechanized Calvary. Upon the stage that had been assembled at the square stood the Senators from the various districts of the city. The Chairman of the Senate, Senator Bliss approached the phonograph speaker to say a few words.

"We, your representatives and leaders of Canal City wish you all a fantastic new Millennium. We know that Canal City will continue to prosper and lead all of Primus into the new technological era! Canal City stands as proof of the decline of Magick, do we not stand over the ruins of Brenga? And did not all of the great Technologists begin here? Yes, Canal City has stood for three hundred years and the Machine God willing it shall stand forever!"

His speech went on for some time longer, while Bliss and one of the younger looking Senators looked confident, the others shifted about uncomfortably. Their gaze moving from Bliss to the other Senator from time to time, as for the Prince of Canal City, there was no sign.

---> Unknown

Four men stood on a high rooftop looking down on the people far below. Their gazes were dark and unpleasant and not one of them looked alike.
A white haired youth with red eye spoke first, his voice was soft and soothing, "The celebration is soon to end, our master has bid us to act but I nary believe we all need to move at once. Morbid and I shall take care of the of the first portion of our mission. Smythe, you watch the newcomers that the Master saw in his vision. And you Dreeg, you find Priest and deal with him. If we get him first then the newcomers will be of no consequence."

The men departed and faded into the shadows, the words of the man were lost in the cheers of the people below.

The handsome Morbian, Cormia, stood outside the Peabody hotel arms crossed and leaning agaisnt it's wall, watching the fireworks.

It was fun to watch this lovely sight, even though he was somewhat annoyed at this crowd of people.

Brushing back his metalic amber hair, Cormia wandered back into the hotel's lobby. But accedently knocking down a young human boy on the way up to his room.

Cormia offered a sleeve-hiddin-hand to help the young man up but he mearly blushed at the sight of Cormia's handsome smile and ran outside.

"Nn..." He rolled his eyes, smirking slightly, and started off for his room again.

When he made it to his room he enspected the furniture to see which was made out of wood. A chair next to an oval shaped window was made out of metal/plastic, but Cormia wanted to see the fireworks from this window, mainly because this had a great view and no people could see him from outside.
So he pushed the chair aside with his boot and kneeled down so he was able to see out the window better.

"How... serene this is..." Cormia's eyes serch for one peticualr type of fire works... the ones that make small but beutiful exsplosions... it reminded him so much of how his grandfather would stare on as Cormia's spells would exsplode into a bright red when he made a mistake... how Cormia missed those days... Not the exsplosion's but his grandfather.

The Morbian sighed but forgot those thoughts as the firework's exsploded into a bright blue and purple.

The sky lit up with the colours of the fireworks, the sounds of celebration could be heard across the city.

Shingo pushed through the crowded streets with his hand holding his metallic mask, "Move it move it!" he shouted, "Im going to miss the . . too late" Shingo slipped off his mask, turned around and headed back the way he came.

Argh, stupid crowd you can't get anywhere in time, might as well get back to the hotel the festivities are over now anyway

Moments later Shingo stood outside the Peabody, "Well whoever paid for the hotel could of got me a better room" he shook his head and headed into the Peabody.

--->Canal City, Millennium Quarter

Although the Nights of Saint Gaul had officially ended after midnight, there were many post-festival parties taking place and the feverish throngs of people did not disperse. The senators withdrew into their motor coaches and drove to their respective homes.

--->Canal City, Millennium Quarter, The Peabody

The celebration within the Peabody was a bit more subdued, there was some light conversation in the bar and the longue. There was one man who seemed to be at the center of attention; he wore a black smoking jacket and top hat, a carefully groomed goatee and handlebar mustache adorned his face. He seemed unusually vigorous and spritly. The ladies hung at his elbow and all the gentlemen toasted his health. He glanced momentarily at Cormia and Shingo as they went by...

[Wayen stood in a small darkened basement, holding up the book he was read and adjusting his glasses to get a better view with the small amount of light seeping through the windows above, he sighed as a spectacular firework exploded in the sky, giving the whole room a tempory tinge of orange-red depsite it being underground. Placing the old textbook back on the desk he rubbed his worn eyes, stood and walked over to the small gap of a window leading the crowded street above.]
Wayen: "What could all this commotion be about? The celebrations are not due untill tomorrow are they?"
[Without moving his glaze from the window he called out to his assistance.]
Wayen: "Plevin, why are the people celebrating early, today is the final day before the festival right?"
[After a long pause of silence Dr Kleskov turned to see where his assistance was, but saw nothing but a dark, empty room.]
Wayen: "Ah thats right, I am alone for this trip."
[He checked his watch to see what time it was, flicking through the various 'modes' of the watch he came across the day's date.]
Wayen: "Oh my, today is indeed the day for the celebrations, it must of slipped my mind. I should get going before I miss the entire cerimony."
[Returning to the desk he picked up his journal and placed it on the bookshelf where the books go, then put the book in the draw where his journal is meant to go. Searching around the desk and room he scatched his head.]
Wayen: "Now where have my glasses gone?"
[He searched the draw, taking the book out again and placing it under his arm, then he walked over to the coat rack and put his coat on, which was inside out.]
Wayen: "I could of sworn this coat had pockets. Oh wait here they are."
[Fixing his coat he walked up the stairs and into the hallway above. Stopping outside the door he patted his pockets in search for the keys.]
Wayen: "Oh dear I've left them behind."
[Returing down the stairs he searched the room, and found the keys on the coat rack. Going over to the desk and picking up some more notes he left behind he walked back up stairs, locking the door behind him and moved out into the street, leaving the keys in the keyhole. He gazed up into the sky as the last firework exploded in a blaze of glory, admiring the use of colors he took a guess at what components where used in the power as the sound Mechanized Guns could be heard. Looking around he made his way through the crowd as the Senator spoke, trying his best not to be knocked over, or knock anyone else over, he found himself lost in a sea of people. Not paying much attention Dr Kleskov seeked around for some refuge from the crowd, he found a small clearing outside a hotel, named the Peabody, which seemed familar. Realizing it was where he was spending the night he made his way towards it. When got there he found a nice spot and set himself to hear the rest of the speach, wishing there was somewhere he could sit down, but just as he stopped the Senator finished talking and they were moving off the platfrom.]
Wayen: *sigh*"All well, nothing but political riff-raff anyway."
[Bracing himself Wayen then moved back into the crowd to make his way back to the library, but moments later he came out of the crowd to find himself back where he started. Thinking to himself, he decided to enter the Peabody to ask the barkeep for some directions, but ended sitting at a table in the corner lounge reading the book he had somehow placed under his arm.]

The popular young man took note of Wayen's arrival and excused himself from his various companions. He gracefully made his way to the scientist.
"Dr. Kleskov, we are honored to have such a renown technologist in our midst. You are an elusive gentleman, a man of your talents should be at the top of Canal City's social circles. Pray tell Herr Doctor, have you come for business or pleasure?"

[Wayen continued to read his book whilst the young man spoke, only after several seconds of silence as the man waited for an answer, he realised he was being spoken to. Raising his head upbruptly, he looked up at the man, placing his book down and adjusting his glasses.]
Wayen: "Oh excuse me, I don't believe we have met, I am Dr Kleskov."
[Standing he reached out an shook the young man's hand, trying to find the correct words for conversation.]
Wayen: "Well I erm, an interesting question you have presented me with I think. What happens when one's business is very well one's pleasure? Ha yes ah, the quest for knowledge is never done, won't you say? Indeed."
[Still shaking the man's hand not knowing what to say next, his glance caught the book he was reading and the right topic he was searching for came to mind.]
Wayen: "Why just now I was reading a interesting piece of writing on the technological chronicals of the scientific improvements on the processing mediums that are used in a wide range of subject devices and common elements with local and non-local substances in the regional area. The facts are quite impressive with such texts in the historical recordings of the transesional progression of the elements themselves is quite enough, but the vast detail that is written when such boundries are not found can be quite suprizing even as the context becomes involved in such cases it opens up the field to more tidings of evolution but in the restricted listing. In fact it is found that some proceedings are ... "
[Wayen continued to lecture on about the various writings and discoveries in the book, plus adding his own opinions and anaylsis. On occasion he would pause to flick through the book or pull out one of his notes and show the young man a diagram, or read a certain passage from the text. The high knowledgable pace and langauge he was using could only be understood by those of his own profession, or any specialists in the field, meaning anyone else would become quite bored or loose attention after a while.]

After deciding there was to many ways to come in contact with wood, Cormia left his room and strolled down to the lounge.

The Morbian felt like spitting with digust that in such a nice hotel as this, that they even had wood in here!

'...but I do supose most do not have an allergy as annoying as mine...' Cormia sighed and took a seat on a cushioned chair that did not appear to have any sorce of wood on it.

Maybe, he would be happy in this town. So far, there were no sorce of any Darklings.

Cormia relaxed his shoulders so they slouched a bit. He looked over to an man, middle age or so, looking to be in a intellectual conversation with a younger man.

The Morbian's golden eyes glistened a bit, and let the sleeve on his shirt fall back so his fingers were visable. Cormia did this only so he could run his fingers threw his hair; it always relaxed him. Then let the sleeves fall back over his hands.

"Exscuse me sir," Cormia looked up to see a young waitress with two goblets in her hand. Her voice sounde riddled with bordem."These are from th` people over there." She pointed over to two young twins, both wearing a long red dress, and over to an older man sitting next to the twins. He was dressed in a normal tux, with curly blond hair that matched the twins blond hair.

Cormia looked at the goblets."...what are they?"

"Two glasses of white wine sir..." She sounded more alive then she did before... for some reason.

Cormia took the two goblets from the waitress, and held both goblets in one hand.

'Somthing free already... and I didn't need to minuplate them...' To be respectful, Cormia flashed a pleased smile over to the twins and the man. The twin girls giggled foolishly, while the man just looked annoyed at the two girls.

'...I wonder if he is their father?' Cormia raised his hand slowly over the goblets in his other hand. '...they do have a resemblance.'

Suddenly the wine inside the goblets glew a light blue then it faded.

Cormia had, now, water in the goblets. 'That wine may have been free but I do not trust free things if I wasn't there to see them order it.' He thought while setting down one of the goblets.

"Cannot seem rude..." He mumbled to himself, then he drank the 'wine' down without removing the goblet at anytime until the water was gone.

"Ah..." Cormia let his eyes wander into space. And involentairly wiped a small trickle of water off his cheek.

___
(OCC: cormia could care less about who sends him free drinks/food/gifts. If it's free, he'd take it from a one eyed crossdressing dragon! ...but if the girl/guy comes over to him in person and gives him somthing Cormia can seem quite rude, or, stubborn/deficult. He is not comfortable around people who would just give him free things without knowing him. ...but he'll take the gift anyway )

---> Canal City, Podol Plaza

Far from the raccous celebrations in Millennium Quarter the cats of Podol Plaza leapt up from their perches and began to yowl and hiss. The ground rumbled and the streets cracked. The water in the smaller canals moved back and forth. There was a great grumble and groan under the ground...there was a low voice that though great in power and stature could only be heard by either those with magickal powers or with Follower blood.
"Come forth childer of Brenga...the hour of ascension is nearly at hand...break the seal! Release me..."
The cats's hissing drowned the voice and the rumbling stopped, the voice died leaving not even an echo.

Akai entered the Peabody, dressed in her covering cloak. She was happily humming a Morbian tune as she closed the door behind her.

Pretty, pretty fireworks... I could almost touch them... And not too many people where I watched them in the sky... she smiled.

She went over to the bar and ordered some ale, as she was about to pay, a small coin dropped to the floor and rolled to a stop at Cormia's feet.

Now where did that coin go? Ahhh, there. Akai knelt down to pick it up, and as she did the hood dropped down revealing her striking features. She noticed the feet in front of her and glanced up.

She blushed violently, looked away, mumbled some excuse and went back to the bar as she covered her face in the hood once again.

Shocked she gulped down some ale and began coughing violently.

The young man listened to Dr. Kleskov in mild intrest, in brief moments of stammering and silence from the scientist he interjected with his own views and tidbits. It was apparant from what he said that he was highly intelligent and knowledgable but had no real direction.
"Well Doctor as much as I would love to stay and talk shop...there are revels to be had and things to be done. I dont suppose you can hear the whispers of the winds?"
With that he walked off.
