Court was opened and the protocol for attending and participating was explained.
2. The Death of Emeline Duskfeather -
Dorkus Fingrip was escorted into the courtroom, accompanied by a Magistrate from Liambridge, Lord Thelwater Duskfeather. The Magistrate immediately pushed to start a trial, accusing Dorkus Fingrip of murdering Emeline Duskfeather. The Lady Chancellor opted instead to question Miss Fingrip first. Miss Fingrip relayed that someone she considered a friend tried to attack her, or seemed to. She was injured and rolled outside, falling unconscious. When she woke, Lady Duskfeather was dead, nearly sliced in half, near her.
Lord Duskfeather pressed that he had physical evidence to connect Dorkus to the crime, though both the Lady Chancellor and Lady Dawntreader recounted that Dorkus traveled to Dawn's Mesa to inform the Queen of Emeline's death, and that she was gravely injured in a manner that matched her recounting of the event. Lady Summers declared an investigation would be opened, and Lady Dawntreader volunteered to conduct it. Lord Duskfeather announced that he would provide his evidence and left abruptly.
3 Court Presentations -
Fenaryu Starweaver and Lady Auriel Silverwing were formally presented to the Phoenix Queen.
4. The Invasion of Bogwater -
General Riverwind gave a report on a small band of orcs who recently invaded Bogwater. He commended several of those present at court for their bravery in battle and was able to declare victory over the invaders. Preparations are now being made to defend against a possible return of those forces. General Riverwind is to consult with Lady Dawnwarder, the Grand Mistress of First Light, on the next steps to be taken. There was some mention by the orc forces of their invasion being on behalf of the Horde, but it is unclear what the motivation truly was.
5. New Business -
Oaths of Fealty: Sir Veleramar Solarion, Fenaryu Starweaver, and Lady Auriel Silverwing knelt before the Phoenix Queen and swore fealty.
Thalassian Language and Culture Courses: Lady Silverwing and Lord Skycaller have developed a curriculum to teach language and culture to those interested. The framework of the curriculum was distributed for all to peruse. The Lady Chancellor commended them on the idea and assured them she would look over their proposal and discuss it with the queen.
[21:04:49] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: We will bagin shortly.
[21:07:17] Veleramar Solarion kept a furrowed brow as he entered the lodge, glancing around those gathered with a muted wariness and isolation. He remained silent and rooted in place.
[21:09:33] Lady Amiyna Summers looks up from her notes and lets her gaze wander around the room. She makes a few marks on the page in front of her, listing the known attendees, and a few more of strangers to inquire about. Setting aside that page, she takes one more glance at the
[21:09:33] Lady Amiyna Summers agenda for the evening before addressing the assembly.
[21:09:50] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader winks slyly at you.
[21:10:29] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper takes a seat on a nearby chair, just behind the lady-chancellor. She affixes herself as a decoration in the room, listening attentively.
[21:10:37] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Good evening and welcome to the Phoenix Court. Court is now open and we will get to our agenda very soon. First, I'd like to review some of the court protocol for those who may not be familiar.
[21:10:46] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless seemed to filter in quite belated, a stack of papers in her arms. The slight elf adjusted them slightly, and gave a sidelong nod to Lutharias. Her gaze lingered slightly past him for a moment, as she took in just how particularly similar she and Lady
[21:10:46] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless Dawnwarder actually were in style.
[21:12:28] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: There are no weapons allowed in the courtroom. If you were not asked to surrender your weapon on arrival, please do so now. There are guards at the rear of the room who will be happy to hold your dear possessions and return them to you at court closing.
[21:12:59] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless gave Lutharias a slight glance, murmuring something under her breath as she extended the paperwork to him.
[21:13:14] Veleramar Solarion frowned for a moment, taking his blade and returning it to a guard at the rear of the room with a slightly menacing stare.
[21:13:22] General Lutharias Riverwind looked to Auriel and nodded, taking the paperwork with a small smile.
[21:13:35] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: There may be times during tonight's session where I will open the floor to comments. If you wish to speak about the current topic, please gesture to indicate it to me. A simple lifting of your hand will usually suffice. I will happily give the floor to
[21:13:35] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: anyone wishing to speak, but I do ask that you keep your comments brief and to the point, as we generally have much to discuss during court.
[21:14:27] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless offered her hands to take back the paperwork as she returned, plate-encapsuled hands outstretched.
[21:14:35] General Lutharias Riverwind glanced over at Auriel and extended the paperwork back to her.
[21:14:41] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless nods.
[21:15:50] Lady Amiyna Summers smiles widely at the assembly in general, giving everyone ample opportunity to take in her words.
[21:16:36] Gïr-EmeraldDream is decidedly a Sin'dorei and not a dead Worgen -- at all. Of the armoured, quasi pious variety and donning sanctimonious-looking armor.
[21:16:55] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless peered around Lutharias, and offered Sir Fairwind a smile smile from afar.
[21:17:23] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless - small smile* )
[21:17:27] Lady Amiyna Summers glances at her agenda, her expression turning serious and sorrowful. She takes a deep breath before raising her eyes to address the court.
[21:18:03] Veleramar Solarion slowly turned his head to the right, eyeing the Sin'dorei and the two others in their more ornate armor. His gaze sized them up with appraisal before swiveling forward again.
[21:18:22] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: I have the unfortunate honor of informing the court that one of our beloved nobles, and a dear friend of the Chancellery and the Queen, has been murdered. During a banquet hosted by the Phoenix Queen, an agent of the crown arrived, gravely wounded, to
[21:18:22] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: tell us of this sad news. I hope that Dorkus Fingrip, the bearer of such a terrible message, has healed enough to be present tonight and give a full accounting of the events she witnessed the evening Emeline Duskfeather was slain. Miss Fingrip, please
[21:18:22] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: take the floor and tell us what occurred that night.
[21:18:58] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader frowns.
[21:19:20] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | In manacles and chains, two sturdy and well-armored members of the Phoenix Legion escort the frail and visually nervous Dorkus Fingrip. The young woman's hair had paled in her time in the infirmary, where she had been kept under lock and key while
[21:19:20] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper being attended to. Marks upon her arms and face indicated only stories where she had been healing at a snail's pace. Somewhere behind her, a well-kept man approacked; his heeled boots clicking on the wooden floor and his hand secured upon a good book of
[21:19:20] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper the law. His red hair was glossy and swept back to be kept out of his face. From his shiny buckled shoes to the top of his head, it was clear he was a magistrate of some affluence.
[21:21:15] Veleramar Solarion eyed Dorkus, a slight squint at the name. A muted intrigue reflected in his eyes and they bore down on the prisoner in expectation of some information.
[21:21:56] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | The Phoenix Legion stop Dorkus just short of the pulpit where she would lay her soul bare; her pale blue eyes darting around the room from the paranoia of accusing glances. The shined up penny of a man who had come with her approached the fore just in
[21:21:56] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper front of the pulit and cleared his throat. "Your Grace, do excuse the manner of our introduction, but I am Lord Thelwater Duskfeather; the magistrate of House Verdantarrow and it is our house's will that this woman be interrogated for having murdered our
[21:21:56] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper beloved Emiline."
[21:22:33] Gïr-EmeraldDream eyed the captive skeptically, as if he half expected some courtly intrigue to be at play out of pure instinct as he examined the woman, his hands clasped in front of his belt.
[21:22:36] General Lutharias Riverwind frowns.
[21:22:53] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader raises an eye at the Magistrate.
[21:22:53] General Lutharias Riverwind took a deep breath but held his peace for now until bidden to speak.
[21:23:08] Veleramar Solarion folded his arms, frowning at the magistrate's words. Still, his lips did not carry anything to fruition.
[21:23:28] Lady Amiyna Summers blinked at the man presenting himself as a Magistrate. He was a stranger to her, and she made a mental note to look further into his appointment, as the Chancellery did handle such positions.
[21:23:56] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | Dorkus Fingrip, for all of the courage she could muster, gripped the wod of the pulpit she now stood on and yapped like a kicked and abused dog toward the man known as Thelwater. "I did not kill her! I did not kill her!"
[21:24:02] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: The court would like to hear from Miss Fingrip what occured that night. Thank you for attending, but we have not moved to the stage of....interrogation yet.
[21:24:11] Taridian Summerwind raises a brow as well at the girl's appearance as well as the accusation placed before her.
[21:24:12] Fenaryu Starweaver took on a sorrowful look, not liking the elf being held in chains.
[21:24:44] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: [Dorkus Fingrip]: I... I didn't see what happened... I just--- Her blood was all over me. All over me. All over me...
[21:25:48] Lady Amiyna Summers smiles gently at the woman practically weeping before them. "Just tell us everything you remember up to that point. We are looking to make sense of this all, and what you know can be much more helpful than you realize."
[21:28:08] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | In truth, Thelwater looked rather displeased with having to hear the story yet again, but out of respect for his position and that of the court, he simply put himself at a trudy parade rest and turned his scowl to Dorkus who -- for better or worse --
[21:28:08] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper was whimpering behind her hands in the recollection of that night. Dorkus then began in a shaking voice: "I... I can't remember much. We had gone because she wanted to follow a woman. A woman in red. We went to the chapel. Harland... Harland... Sweet
[21:28:08] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper Harland..."
[21:29:16] General Lutharias Riverwind forced a swallow and crossed his arms - a fidget to restrain himself.
[21:29:30] Lady Amiyna Summers remains silent, listening to the woman, and waiting patiently for her to continue.
[21:30:19] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader gnashes her teeth, doing her best to restrain herself.
[21:30:48] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | To Dorkus' quivering, Thelwater gave a derisive snort. "Your Grace, this woman has clearly lost herself to madness. We sent investigators the moment Lady Emiline did not return from her jaunt to Liambridge. When we arrived, Dorkus had fled into the
[21:30:48] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper woods, leaving plenty of evidence that she is the one who killed her superior and left her body there. ...A greusome display."
[21:31:59] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Magistrate, I am sure you are aware of how I, and the queen, learned of our dear Emeline's death. Your 'murderer' fled to Dawn's Mesa to inform us of it.
[21:32:00] Lord Thorave Alvernos idly turns a glare on the magistrate speaking out of turn, again.
[21:32:04] General Lutharias Riverwind exhaled and let words flow. "Let the rule of law prevail. Until such a time that Miss Fingrip is afforded a proper trial under the law, she will be considered innocent of any such crimes."
[21:33:11] [S] [Lady Ledaria Dawntreader]: The so-called "murderer" was in no state to commit any crimes by the time she arrived, I might add. I tended to her wounds personally.
[21:33:18] Lady Amiyna Summers smiles at General Riverwind, nodding to acknowledge her agreement with his statement.
[21:33:22] Veleramar Solarion glanced between those speaking, then let his eyes refocus on Dorkus. An oddly emphatic look as he attempted to look into the pale blue eyes, features still deceptively impassive.
[21:34:29] Lady Amiyna Summers turns back to Dorkus who was still shaking and crying. "Go on, please. Who is Harland?"
[21:35:33] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | Dorkus removed her hands from her face to clench them into definitive fists. "I did NOT kill her!" She shouted over the din. Taking in a deep breath, she gave Thelwater a blurry-eyed stare. "Harland... He didn't mean to. He did mean to. He attacked us.
[21:35:33] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper He didn't mean to! He was angry! He didn't attack. He--" Dorkus caught her breath in her throat. Thelwater silenced himself if only to restrain the obvious anger he felt as he looked upon Dorkus.
[21:36:17] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: What did Harland do, Miss Fingrip?
[21:38:18] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: [Dorkus Fingrip]: I... I don't remember much. He tried to come at me. I am sure he was not trying to attack. No. I must have misjudged. I must have flinched and so Emiline tried to save me. Yes. I misjudged. Harland would never hurt me. He was much too
[21:38:18] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: old. Too frail now. All I remember was falling forward to get away and I felt the ground but the pain was so real. So great. I rolled away and finally rolled outside into the mud.
[21:39:01] General Lutharias Riverwind blinks.
[21:39:03] Lady Amiyna Summers studies the woman as she speaks. "This fall is how you sustained your injuries?"
21:40:08] Veleramar Solarion flexed his fingers idly, unspoken questions building in the dour elf's head. He studied the injuries on Dorkus Fingrip intently as well.
[21:41:31] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: [Dorkus Fingrip]: Yes. I believe so. I hit the ground. On my knees. I could feel the pain and I couldn't get up. All I knew was that she killed Harland. She killed him! I saw her do it!
[21:42:22] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: So she killed him and then you fell forward?
[21:42:48] Lady Amiyna Summers lifts a hand and beckons Ledaria to approach. "Lady Dawntreader, you and I helped treat those wounds. Would you say what she's told us matches the injuries you helped to bind?"
21:45:03] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader steps forward and gives a polite bow. "Indeed. Her knees were grievously injured. It's a wonder she was even able to make it to Dawn's Mesa without passing out from the pain. Far as I could tell, the poor thing was in agony."
[21:45:55] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | Dorkus' fragile hold on reality snapped for a moment. The memory was still too great for her and as she stood there trying her best not to fall apart, she began to dry heave. One of the Phoenix Legion guards helped to hoist Dorkus back to a
[21:45:55] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper half-standing position. Thelwater's nose wrinkled up as he watched her nearly vomit just from recalling the incident. His steel-gray eyes panned toward the lady-chancellor and still he held his tongue for the time being -- even if he disliked the notion
[21:45:55] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper of having to. Dorkus straightened herself out enough to anchor herself to one side of the pulpit to be able to glance out. "She killed Harland... I know this..." She continued, "and when I came to, she was on top of me and sliced nearly in twain."
[21:46:40] General Lutharias Riverwind blinks.
[21:46:49] Lady Amiyna Summers lifts her eyes to Luther. "General Riverwind, as the questions keep jumping out of you, would you like a chance to take the floor?"
[21:47:52] General Lutharias Riverwind held up his hands. "I am simply attempting to make sure that the story remains consistent. However, given the current state the witness is in, I believe it best if she is not questioned further for the time being, Lady Chancellor."
[21:48:47] Lady Amiyna Summers nods at this. "I was not implying that you were deterring from this recounting of events, General, and I do agree about the state of our only witness."
[21:49:05] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at you.
[21:49:06] General Lutharias Riverwind smiles at you.
[21:49:12] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Of course, m'Lady.
[21:49:57] Lady Amiyna Summers inclines her head, looking between Dorkus and the overly stern Magistrate standing nearby. She turns briefly to glance at Rennali, only a flicker of a glance before turning back to the assembly.
[21:50:41] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: As we currently have no evidence of what occurred outside Miss Fingrip's testimony, I am launching an investigation of this matter. I will happily accept volunteers who wish to work toward uncovering what treachery has transpired. Those who wish to be of
[21:50:41] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: aid will take direction from the Chancellery and report back directly to me. I can take names now if you wish, or you may approach me after court.
[21:51:04] [S] [Lady Ledaria Dawntreader]: I would like to volunteer my services.
[21:51:06] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper | Thelwater straightened out his collar as an unnecessary quirk. The nuance did little to sway from his demeanor nor the overall state of dress. "Lady-Chancellor, I realize that this is no trial but given the circumstances, would it not be prudent for me
[21:51:06] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper to at least provide this court with more than anecdotal evidence from someone who may have very well been the killer? I have physical evidence to the contrary, if the court would be willing to at least humor the idea of allowing actual evidence to support
[21:51:06] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper a contradiction in her story."
[21:51:55] General Lutharias Riverwind gave a nod to Thelwater, but waited for Amiyna's judgment.
[21:52:33] Lady Amiyna Summers turns her gaze back to the Magistrate. "As this is not a trial, anything you have to present will now become part of the open investigation. You may give your evidence to Lady Dawntreader after court closes. We will not be debating the validity of your
21:52:33] Lady Amiyna Summers information versus Miss Fingrip's during this session of court."
[21:52:55] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at you.
[21:53:30] Lord Harpin Cornwell crosses his arms, still not sure what to believe on the whole of this incident.
[21:54:06] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Dari, please be sure to get all of our dear Magistrate's information after court. I would like a full report of the physical evidence so we can determine where to focus the investigation.
[21:54:14] [S] [Lady Ledaria Dawntreader]: Of course.
[21:54:19] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper |The very idea made Thelwater sneer. He huffed, giving a nod to the Phoenix Legion. Before his flamboyant exit, he eyed Amiyna over. "Of course this court would be unwilling to hear or see any actual evidence that made some sniveling little girl out to
[21:54:19] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper be what she truly is. Your Lady Dawntreader may have my evidence before the end of the week." With that, he was gone.
[21:54:22] You thank Ledaria.
[21:54:53] Veleramar Solarion flashed a derisive and intense glare at the departing Magistrate, but held his tongue. For now.
[21:54:58] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader narrows her eyes at the magistrate as he leaves.
[21:55:01] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper cast a momentary glance to Amiyna, raising a brow toward her more out of curiosity of the situation -- and maybe a bit of amusement.
21:55:04] Lady Amiyna Summers shrugs slightly, making note of the Magistrate's behavior. "Shall we move to the next item on our agenda?" she asked mildly.
[21:55:05] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless leant just slightly toward Lutharias, as she had been silent the entire time. She gave a simple and pointed.. "Well then."
[21:55:15] You smirk slyly at Rennali.
[21:57:04] Lord Harpin Cornwell just blinks at the mans exit, "What a piss baby" he thought."
[21:57:31] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: I fear we have more dire news to discuss this evening, but I would like to take a moment to conduct something a bit more lighthearted. We have recently begun to use this court as a way of introducing those new to us, to both the court, and our beloved
[21:57:31] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: queen.
[21:58:01] Lord Thorave Alvernos blinks a few times, idly scratching his head. He could have sworn he didn't have a telepathy spell up.
[21:58:07] Lady Amiyna Summers nods and smiles at Fenaryu before continuing. "Fenaryu Starweaver, will you please approach?"
[21:58:17] You beckon Fenaryu over.
[21:58:31] Fenaryu Starweaver shocked, steps up.
[21:58:52] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: My queen, it is my pleasure to present Fenaryu Starweaver, who has recently settled in Bogwater.
[22:01:31] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper smiles at Fenaryu.
[22:01:45] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: It is a pleasure to meet you, Fenaryu Starweaver of Bogwater.
[22:02:19] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: If I recall correctly, you mentioned an interest in studying holy magic with Father Branas, yes?
[22:02:26] Fenaryu Starweaver gives a weak smile back. "I, um...nice to meet you too."
[22:02:33] Fenaryu Starweaver nods at you.
[22:02:39] [S] [Fenaryu Starweaver]: That is correct.
[22:02:47] Mckraken-WyrmrestAccord lets out a loud belch.
[22:03:06] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Have you had an opportunity to speak to Father Branas yet?
[22:04:12] Fenaryu Starweaver shakes his head. "Not yet. I was going to do it at the last liturgy. Unfortunately, I had, well, something else that required my attention."
[22:04:43] Lady Amiyna Summers nods in understanding. "I believe he is expecting you, so perhaps this week you will be able to catch him."
[22:04:49] Gïr-EmeraldDream cleared his throat softly and bit back any remark he may have about liturgy. He only smirked at Rennali from the back.
[22:05:42] Fenaryu Starweaver smiles. "I will try."
[22:06:01] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper panned a quick glance to Hyrall in the back. She eyed him over a couple times -- searching for something, clearly. When she thought she found it, she returned to smiling at Fenaryu. "I have no doubt that your lessons from the Father will serve you well."
[22:06:50] Fenaryu Starweaver looks at the Queen. "Well, if you say so, then there's no doubt about it."
[22:07:02] Lady Amiyna Summers smiles warmly at Fenaryu. "If you have need of any assistance as you begin this journey, I would be happy to help."
[22:07:16] Gïr-EmeraldDream's smirk flowed into a deceptively innocent smile once he found himself under scrutiny and his hands withdrew to behind his back as he adopted a formal posture, eyes drifting to Fenaryu momentarily to study the unfamiliar face.
[22:07:52] Taridian Summerwind simply nods at the newcomer in acknowledgement, the corner of his mouth perking up into a smile.
[22:07:59] Fenaryu Starweaver returns his gaze back to Lady Amiyna. "I thank you for that. I may have to discuss some things with you very soon."
[22:08:29] Veleramar Solarion stared at Fenaryu critically from behind, sizing the man up in silence before turning his gaze to the Lady Chancellor.
[22:08:34] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Feel free to visit Belore's Valley at your convenience.
[22:09:35] [S] [Fenaryu Starweaver]: I'll see to it that I will.
[22:09:55] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper nodded her head slowly, knowingly. She cast a quick glance to Amiyna in a blase expectancy, then returned to watching everyone else.
[22:09:58] Lady Amiyna Summers lifts a hand, gesturing back toward Fenaryu's seat in the assembly. "Thank you, Fenaryu. You are extremely pleasant company, but we must move on with our agenda, and I believe another awaits a presentation."
[22:10:19] You smile at Fenaryu.
[22:10:37] Fenaryu Starweaver returns to his original position, but not before winking at Auriel.
22:11:53] Lady Amiyna Summers follows his wink across the room, inclining her head toward its recipient. "Lady Auriel Silverwing, please approach."
[22:12:04] You beckon Sword over.
[22:12:08] Fenaryu Starweaver smiles back at Amiyna, then takes on a calm face, prepared for the next item.
22:13:09] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless | The slight woman would place her paperwork aside her, hands clad in that shimmering plate lofting to tug her cowl backwards -- she would blink thrice to adjust those sapphire hues to the light sans her cowl as she shook out her waist-length alabaster
[22:13:09] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless locks. Heeled boots would resound with measured footfall as she approached, weaving through the crowd.
[22:14:25] Lady Amiyna Summers turns to smile at Rennali, raising an eyebrow. "I confess that I myself know little of Lady Silverwing, so I will allow her to introduce herself." She turned her smile to Auriel.
[22:14:32] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper leaned to one side in her chair, peering to where the paladin was standing. She used one finger set against her cheek to keep her head propped upright... somewhat.
[22:16:17] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "There are some here that are aware of my identity -- others who are not, in the case of the Lady Chancellor. I am Auriel Silverwing, of the Silver Hand; I have served the order since it's inception, most extensively in the regard of the Southern church.
[22:16:17] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: I have yet to swear any oath to Quel'Athilien, though I have wholeheartedly enjoyed the company of those whom I have had the honor to meet thus far."
[22:16:49] General Lutharias Riverwind smiles at Sword.
[22:16:51] Veleramar Solarion eyed Auriel with the same piercing gaze, studying her as she was presented with his arms folded and expression statuesque.
[22:16:52] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless would bend rather stiffly at the waist -- the woman seemed a rather stern figure, her tone somewhat robotic in nature. Those pale locks brushed the stone at her feet as she bowed.
[22:18:26] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless rose after a moment, posture almost too straight - thought a very slight redness crept across the bridge of her nose. Socially awkward turtle.
[22:18:34] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless - though* )
[22:19:18] Lady Amiyna Summers widens her smile at the introduction. "I am, of course, very happy to meet you, Lady Silverwing. I am also delighted that you have enjoyed the company of those true to Quel'Athillien." She turned to include Rennali in the smile, waiting for the queen's
[22:19:18] Lady Amiyna Summers response.
[22:19:23] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper rose her brows, giving a passable nod of acknowedgement to the Silver Hand paladin.
[22:19:36] Veleramar Solarion drew his lips into a thin line, a faint flicker of scrutiny at the woman's red cheeks.
[22:20:02] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless would then, in several brief strides, return to her place in the crowd.
[22:20:25] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless | And subsequently she descended back into the confines of her cowl once more.
[22:21:00] Gïr-EmeraldDream looked on impassively, a mask of stoicism falling over his features.
[22:21:06] Lady Amiyna Summers gives a nod to Rennali, and another small smile to Auriel. "Unfortunately, we must now turn back to the more serious business of this court.
[22:22:34] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Shortly after learning of the murder of Emeline Duskfeather, our lands came under attack by unknown assailants. Lord Riverwind, will you please take the floor and give a report of the battle near Bogwater?
[22:22:55] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at you.
[22:26:16] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: M'lords and Ladies of the Court, six days ago, during the night, a runner came to us from the Duchy of Bogwater with grave news saying that a band of Orcs had begun marading in the area -- looting and pillaging all they came upon.
22:27:01] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: A hasty expedition was organized to slow the threat as we could -- many of us present here at court were present on that very field of battle where we engaged the enemy.
[22:27:53] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Our enemy, from what I could tell of him, claimed allegience to the Horde, and shouted that they were retaking our lands for the Sin'dorei which had been denied them.
[22:28:45] Lady Larrendias Dawnwarder tilted her head -- the first gesture or expression offered thus far, tonight -- as she listened to Lutharias's recounting of the conflict with he 'Horde.'
[22:29:02] Gïr-EmeraldDream arched a finely sculpted brow at the revelation. The single Sin'dorei in attendance could appreciate the irony of that claim, although he seemed skeptical.
[22:29:32] Veleramar Solarion arched a brow slowly, peering around those gathered and the Sin'dorei especially before returning his attention forward.
[22:29:34] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: We engaged the enemy in what I believe could only have been divine favor -- for our enemy, had he been able to establish himself before we could engage, would have been able to set up cannons as one was able to be deployed midway through the battle.
22:30:25] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Had it not been for quick action and great valor of many men and women here today, we could be facing a greater threat.. But we managed to fight the enemy back and dismantle his cannon.
[22:30:28] General Lutharias Riverwind smiles.
[22:30:56] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper shifts herself in her seat, now lacing her fingers together in her lap and listening to the report. A small, imperceptable frown traced her mouth but she keept her expression attentative for the most part.
[22:31:39] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Special commedations are to go out to Duchess Amiyna Summers who was absolutely pivotal in the battle -- our enemy had foolishly forgotten to bring healers with him and Lady Summers healing allowed us to have the sustainability we needed to triumph.
[22:32:09] Lady Amiyna Summers inclines her head and smiles, a slight pink flush coloring her cheeks.
[22:32:44] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: General, I cannot believe that this will be the last we see of these invaders. What preparations are being made to see to the defense of our lands and people?
[22:32:49] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Other commendations go to Lord Harpin Cornwell, Lady Ledaria Dawntreader, and our new citizen Fenaryu Starweaver. They acted in a tactfully-minded military manner.
[22:33:00] Veleramar Solarion lifted his brows slightly in surprise, head swiveling towards Amiyna with new intrigue.
[22:33:00] General Lutharias Riverwind looks at you.
[22:33:01] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at you.
[22:33:07] You smile at Ledaria.
[22:33:14] You smile at Harpin.
[22:33:20] You smile at Fenaryu.
[22:33:56] Gïr-EmeraldDream eyes you up and down.
[22:34:18] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Patrols will increase within Bogwater. This has not been a thing done in the past since it was thought that the bog was accursed and that none who would invade would attempt to enter -- this is a mistake that will not happen again.
[22:34:24] You blink at Gïr-EmeraldDream.
[22:35:13] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: I would, if there is time and ability, recommend that our intelligence teams mount a counter offensive and that we work with our allies who have affiliation with the Horde...
[22:35:33] Lady Amiyna Summers glances out to the assembly, her eyes settling on Larrendias briefly before turning back to Luther. "Have you considered consulting with Lady Dawnwarder?"
[22:35:36] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: ... so that we may discover both the identity our our attacker and his motivations.
[22:36:21] General Lutharias Riverwind shook his head. "Forgive me, I have not. As I am not a part of Quel'Athillien's intelligence commitees, I did not wish to tread on toes."
[22:36:23] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper steepled her fingers, casting a momentary glance to Larrendias with a silent, alebit similar question. Not waiting much for the response, she looks directly then to Lutharias in anticipation.
[22:36:30] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: I shall do so immediately after Court.
[22:37:34] Lady Amiyna Summers nods, her smile flickering between the General and the Grand Mistress. "I have every confidence in your combined abilities."
[22:37:57] Fenaryu Starweaver considers all of this, worry leans forming on his face.
[22:38:05] Fenaryu Starweaver lines*))
[22:38:08] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at you.
22:38:20] Lady Larrendias Dawnwarder exchanged brief glances with Lutharias before returning her gaze to Rennali and Amiyna.
[22:38:55] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Is there anything further to report on this, General?
[22:39:51] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Nothing other than gut instincts and intuition, Lady Summers.
[22:40:15] Lady Amiyna Summers clasps her hands in front of her and inclines her head. "Something you wish to share?"
[22:42:21] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: With regards to our attacker's motivation, I am wholley uncerrtain that he was acting under orders from the Horde. I suspect his ear was bent to someone who has a grievence to settle with Quel'Athillien. ... With Zilox Bloodmantle having been dealt with
[22:42:21] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: by First Light, I believe he can be ruled off the list, but it is someone of similar modis operandi.
[22:42:44] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: I have a feeling that this attack was a diversion for some other ploy. We all ought to be on alert.
[22:42:56] [S] [Lord Thorave Alvernos]: Was Bloodmantle's wife handled?
[22:43:28] Gïr-EmeraldDream chimed in serenely. ''Bloodmantle is in the process of being eliminated and his influence cut off wholly. His reach diminished considerably, though.''
[22:43:40] General Lutharias Riverwind turned to Thorave and pointed to Larrendias. "She would know."
[22:43:46] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at Gïr-EmeraldDream.
[22:43:53] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Thank you, Sir Fairwind.
[22:44:10] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: Perhaps the lady in red mentioned in Dorkus' testimony.
[22:44:12] [S] [Lady Larrendias Dawnwarder]: Little more than ashes shall remain, soon enough.
[22:44:45] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Let's not rule anyone out completely, but speculation at this point will not be as productive as preparations for the return of this force.
[22:44:58] General Lutharias Riverwind nods at you.
[22:45:00] Taridian Summerwind winces at the mention of Zilox Bloodmantle.
[22:45:18] Veleramar Solarion pursed his lips, nodding at Amiyna's words and returning to his stoic silence.
[22:45:30] [S] [General Lutharias Riverwind]: Of course, Lady Chancellor.
[22:45:31] General Lutharias Riverwind bows down graciously.
[22:45:36] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper nodded appreciatively, but little more. Her eyes lowered to the ground in thought.
[22:46:29] Lady Amiyna Summers looks over her notes briefly. "The last item I have is the Fire Festival and its preparations." She turns toward Rennali.
[22:46:42] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: My queen, would you speak on this topic?
[22:53:13] Lady Amiyna Summers thinks Renna may have afk'd?
[22:53:29] Veleramar Solarion prepares for multi-para crit.
22:53:33] Gïr-EmeraldDream thinks she may be busy playing with glitter.
[22:53:41] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper clears her throat...
[22:53:46] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: We're having one.
[22:53:51] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper smiles.
[22:53:54] General Lutharias Riverwind blinks.
[22:53:57] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper quietly snickers to herself.
[22:54:06] Lord Harpin Cornwell can't help but snigger at the queens response.
[22:54:13] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: As some of you may or may not know, Quel'Athillien hosts a Fire Festival during the Midsummer each year.
[22:54:17] Lord Thorave Alvernos lets out a bemused snort and offers a silent clap, smirking at Rennali.
[22:54:22] Taridian Summerwind chuckles lightly.
[22:54:28] A sly smirk spreads across General Lutharias Riverwind's face.
[22:54:58] Veleramar Solarion lifted a brow at Rennali's words, the spectre of amusement crossing his eyes and disappearing just as quickly.
[22:54:58] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: This year, we have chosen June twenty-sixth as the day we will be hosting it. As usual, we ask for volunteers to assist in the many events and stations we will have posted up.
[22:55:35] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: This festival is meant for the Horde and the Alliance. Last year we hosted one hundred and fifty people from six in the evening till nearly three or four in the morning the next morning.
[22:55:53] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: This is our yearly big deal.
[22:56:16] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: So, if you plan on helping out, let me know. [[ NOTE: We will be having an OOC Discord meeting on the subject tomorrow night. ]]
[22:56:40] Lady Amiyna Summers smiles at Rennali, nodding.
[22:56:43] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper nodded to Amiyna thereafter.
[22:57:26] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Thank you, Your Majesty. I believe that covers everything on our formal agenda.
[22:58:43] Lady Amiyna Summers takes a deep breath, noticing the time. "I will now open the floor to any new business. Keep in mind, especially considering the hour, that new business may be added to the next court agenda rather than discussed immediately."
[22:58:49] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper settles back into her chair, glancing out to Hyrall across the room. She sees a flash of something; her lips spreading into a devious grin to a joke clearly only she can hear.
[22:58:53] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart looks at you and raises his hand.
[22:59:12] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Lord Brightheart, the floor is yours.
[22:59:20] Veleramar Solarion arched a brow, glancing between the queen and the subject of her grin with some befuddlement.
[22:59:29] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: My thanks, Lady Summers.
[22:59:30] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart smiles at you.
[22:59:53] You smile at Arerilaen.
[23:00:08] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: I would like to present to the Court tonight Quel'Athillien's most recent arrival and prospective citizen if I may, Lady Chancellor.
[23:01:14] Lady Amiyna Summers turns her attention to the armored figure being asked to approach.
[23:02:16] Veleramar Solarion squinted briefly as he realized he was the subject of the Magistrate's taking to the floor. He stepped forward with armored footfalls, taking a place before Amiyna and Rennali and lowering his cowl to let his blonde mane flow down.
[23:02:18] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper panned her sight back to where it needed to be. She levied herself on Veleramar, studying him. This time, her smile curled back up to a more warm and less impish expression of herself. Glitterwind would just have to wait.
23:02:19] Gïr-EmeraldDream suppressed the urge to induce the Court into mourning another murder as he witnessed that vestige of mischief. Fel infused eyes narrowed in Rennali's direction and he held his left hand up, as if to remind her of another practical joke before he turned to
[23:02:19] Gïr-EmeraldDream Larrendias and uttered a few quiet words.
[23:02:32] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: Originally hailing from Silvermoon City, Mister Solarion has served the Kingdom of Quel'Thalas as well as the old Grand Alliance of Lordaeron, and was an affiliate of the Knights of the Silver Hand.
[23:02:56] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: If he is ready, I would like to administer him with the Oath of Fealty.
[23:03:50] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper spoke to Arerilaen, but trained her gaze on the knight. "Is he ready?"
[23:04:25] Veleramar Solarion glanced at the queen's warm smile, fixating on her for a moment with a nod of his head in respect and a thinly veiled intrigue. He made no move to break his gaze from hers.
[23:04:32] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart looked to Veleramar, that he would give his own confirmation for formality's sake.
[23:04:46] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart looks at Rennali.
[23:04:54] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: I am ready, yes.
[23:05:21] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper nodded her head but she did not blink. "Proceed," she mused to him in a tone that might not have reached the back of the room.
[23:07:03] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart nodded and moved to one of the Queen's entourage to retrieve the Sword of State. He returned and bid Veleramar to kneel before Rennali.
[23:07:12] Lady Larrendias Dawnwarder nodded faintly as she listened to Hyrall's whispers. Azure eyes remained fixated on the front of the chamber, however.
[23:07:48] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper took up from her chair to give the man his due if he was going to swear himself to the crown. Demurely, she folded her hands before herself to watch him carefully but with an appreciated warmth.
[23:08:42] Gïr-EmeraldDream's whispering voice could barely be discerned as he continued on, his voice monotonous as he detailed something.
[23:09:02] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart turned and called to the gathered. "Before we begin, are their any others who wish to swear fealty? If so, please come forth and kneel before her Majesty."
[23:09:07] Veleramar Solarion moved forward decisively and knelt before the woman, a resolute air to him.
[23:09:14] Veleramar Solarion kneels down.
[23:09:23] Veleramar Solarion kneels down.
[23:09:27] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart *there ))
[23:09:29] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless lowered her cowl once more, and weaved through the crowd to approach those at the front.
[23:10:05] Fenaryu Starweaver approaches, taking a spot right next to Veleramar.
[23:10:09] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless | In the rustle and clank of plate, Lady Silverwing would bend knee before Lady Sunwhisper and the Lady Chancellor.
[23:10:10] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless kneels down.
[23:10:13] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart drew the Sword and placed it before the gathered in front of Rennali. "Please lay your right hand upon the blade and repeat my words."
[23:10:15] Fenaryu Starweaver kneels down.
[23:10:22] You smile at Sword.
[23:10:56] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless fanned a slender hand atop the blade, alongside her fellow kinsmen.
[23:11:02] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper's mask of polite indifference was shifted slightly when she noted Auriel taking a knee. It was paradoxical for her, but she smiled to the woman the same as anyone else and quietly allowed the magistrate to do his due diligence.
[23:11:08] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: I, state your name, do swear fealty and service unto the Crown of Quel'Athillien.
[23:11:20] Veleramar Solarion lifted his hand and placed it on the sword, waiting patiently and stealing a glance at either of his fellow oath takers.
[23:11:32] Fenaryu Starweaver places his hand on the sword, doing as the man said.
[23:12:00] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "I, Auriel Silverwing, do swear fealty and service unto the Crown of Quel'Athilien."
[23:12:07] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: I, Veleramar Solarion, do swear fealty and service unto the Crown of Quel'Athilien.
[23:12:27] [S] [Fenaryu Starweaver]: I, Fenaryu Starweaver, do swear fealty and service unto the Crown of Quel'Athillien.
[23:12:30] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: To speak and to be silent, to do and to let be --
[23:12:45] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless would glance upwards pointedly, as if her bending knee was an answer to prior conversations of her doubts, sapphire eyes upturned to Rennali for a moment, before falling downwards once more.
[23:13:44] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "To speak and to be silent; to do, and to let be.."
[23:13:49] [S] [Fenaryu Starweaver]: To speak and to be silent, to do and to let be --.
[23:14:01] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: to speak and to be silent, to do and to let be --
[23:14:19] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: To*
[23:14:36] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: To come and to go, in need and in plenty, in peace and in war, in living and in dying --
[23:14:57] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: To come and to go, in need and in plenty, in peace and in war, in living and in dying --
[23:15:23] [S] [Fenaryu Starweaver]: To come and to go, in need and in plenty, in peace and in war, in living and in dying --.
[23:15:39] Gïr-EmeraldDream murmured to Larrendias amid their quiet exchange of words. ''And to endure pranks as her whims dictate.'' His voice was momentarily imbued of solemnity as he introduced that line to the oath in his mind and shared that quietly.
[23:16:01] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "To come and to go, in need and in plenty, in peac and in war, in living and in dying.."
[23:16:04] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper glances up only for a moment to stare at Hyrall... He had nooooo idea...
[23:16:04] [S] [Baron Arerilaen Brightheart]: From this hour henceforth, until my Lady release me, death take me, or the world end.
[23:16:23] [S] [Veleramar Solarion]: From this hour henceforth, until my Lady release me, death take me, or the world end.
[23:16:33] [S] [Fenaryu Starweaver]: From this hour henceforth, until my Lady release me, death take me, or the world end.
[23:16:40] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "From this hour henceforth until my Lady release me, death take me, or the world end."
[23:16:42] Baron Arerilaen Brightheart slowly removed the blade from the touch of those taking oath; carefully so as to not harm them - the oath being complete.
[23:18:18] Lady Larrendias Dawnwarder held a wry expression as Hyrall's words reached her ear. Her eyes, meanwhile, wandered over Rennali with equal parts curiosity and intrigue as the three swore fealty before her.
[23:18:46] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper looks to the kneeling citizens and smiles. "You are now oathsworn. To bear the oath to the crown is to make peace with your new place in life. You swear yourselves to more than just this mortal body or the gold that gilds my head; you swear yourselves to
[23:18:46] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper an ideal that cannot die with age nor rust with time."
[23:19:17] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless lowered her hand to her bent knee after the blade was lowered, that stern gaze boring a hole into the stone, were it possible to do so.
[23:19:35] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: Our ideal is peace. Fellowship. Faith. Unity. These are the ideals you have sworn yourselves to and the ideals that you should be willing to fight for and protect. You are not faceless, shapeless beings meant for cannonfodder. No.
[23:20:08] Fenaryu Starweaver looked at his hands, surprised to see them shaking so badly.
[23:20:13] [S] [Regina Rennali Sunwhisper]: You are figures of the very beliefs we hold here as a people. A nation. A family. Rise and be one with those ideals. Become one with your home and love it and cherish it.
[23:20:39] Rennali has promoted Sword to Oathsworn.
[23:20:50] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless rose at that moment -- though the woman was slight in stature, she stood tall in her armor. She seemed set in her decision to swear this oath, having mulled over it for some time.
[23:21:32] Fenaryu Starweaver stood up, looking at the Queen with utmost respect.
[23:21:38] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless gave a rather stiff salute to Lady Sunwhisper; Auriel now recognizing her as the one she swore fealty to. After years of serving the Human kingdom's interest, this was quite a pivotal moment for the elf.
[23:21:41] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless salutes Rennali with respect.
[23:21:56] You smile at Sword.
[23:22:42] Veleramar Solarion rose without pause, an old and nostalgic expression on the elf's face as he studied the queen. He offered a salute in turn, then returned to his stoic silence.
[23:22:43] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper returned the smiles she was given with a genuine appreciation.
[23:22:48] Veleramar Solarion stands at attention and salutes.
23:23:02] Fenaryu Starweaver salutes Rennali with respect.
[23:23:49] Lady Larrendias Dawnwarder whispered softly with Hyrall.
[23:24:15] Lord Harpin Cornwell starts clapping for thr group of them, welcoming them to the kingdom.
[23:24:31] You grin wickedly at Harpin.
[23:24:39] Lord Archayell Skycaller claps excitedly.
[23:24:46] Gïr-EmeraldDream made a series of gestures, pointing in a certain direction and folding his hands, as if they molded around something and squeeze... one's neck, perhaps? It was an attempt to reinforce his point.
[23:26:25] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper glanced sidelong, and affectionately, to Amiyna.
[23:26:57] Lady Amiyna Summers returns Renna's glance, smiling warmly.
[23:28:53] Lady Amiyna Summers smiles at the new oathsworn members of Quel'Athillen. "Our Queendom is fortunate to gain you all this night. Thank you for this gift of trust and devotion."
[23:29:20] Lady Amiyna Summers nods to them each to indicate they may return to their places.
[23:29:36] Fenaryu Starweaver nods to Lady Amiyna, and then to Queen Rennali.
[23:29:37] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless bows down graciously.
[23:29:52] Lord Archayell Skycaller nods at Sword.
[23:29:52] Veleramar Solarion glanced to Amiyna for a moment, nodding to her with a lighter expression. He returned to his spot without much fanfare.
[23:29:53] Lord Archayell Skycaller smiles at Sword.
[23:30:09] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless would very casually, and very sneakily, give a sharp and well-aimed elbow to Archayell's kidney.
[23:30:15] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: The hour grows late, do we have any other business to address?
[23:30:42] Lord Archayell Skycaller gave a muffled yelp at the elbow, his knee dropping slightly.
[23:30:54] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless raises her hand in the air.
[23:30:54] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader prepares to glare at anyone who proposes new business, covering her hand to yawn.
[23:31:09] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Lady Silverwing, the floor is yours.
[23:31:14] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader glares angrily at Sword.
[23:31:23] Lord Archayell Skycaller smirks slyly at Ledaria.
[23:31:32] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper settled back into her chair and smiled with a contented sigh.
[23:31:46] Lord Archayell Skycaller nursed his side slightly.
[23:32:08] Taridian Summerwind looks at Archayell with a brow raised in concern for his mentor.
[23:33:31] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "Lord Skycaller and I have been discussing this matter of business for some time; initially it was born as an idea. An idea that indeed took flight, and has found itself in written word for you all to consider tonight. It is a concern for myself, as it
[23:33:31] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: should be for my fellow Quel'dorei here, that there are those of our kin who -- due to issues political and military alike -- have never set foot in Quel'thalas, or had the opportunity to be immersed in our culture and language as some of us.. more
[23:33:31] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: seasoned Quel'dorei, have had the opportunity to do so.."
[23:33:58] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless trailed off, using the word 'seasoned' in favor of 'old'. She would briefly pass out paperwork to each person present.
[23:34:07] Lady Amiyna Summers turns her full attention to Lady Silverwing.
[23:34:16] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless - tinyurl.com/ThalassianLanguageCourses )
[23:35:23] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper drew her lips down slightly at the idea, but not out of any disgust but rather... she was impressed.
[23:35:30] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "This is only a brief summary of what this concerns, but he and I wished to begin a curriculum of courses designed for interested parties to learn the Thalassian language and culture in a manner that is condusive to such a thing."
[23:35:30] Lady Amiyna Summers hopes she's the anonymous liger on that page.
[23:35:33] Lord Thorave Alvernos idly flips through the provided papers, a bemused smirk touching his lips.
[23:35:53] Veleramar Solarion furrowed his brows in abject confusion as he read the papers, expression dour per usual.
[23:36:33] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "With the agreement and blessing of Lady Sunwhisper, Lord Skycaller and I would wish to begin preparations for this as soon as possible, with the assistance of anyone who feels passionately about the issue as we do."
[23:36:35] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless bows down graciously.
[23:36:42] Gïr-EmeraldDream accepted the parchment and skimmed over it, an ear perked at a statement, yet he did not offer any input. This was decidedly not his forte.
[23:37:01] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless - These will be OOC classes as well, for those interested! )
[23:37:02] Fenaryu Starweaver looks down at the paper, clearly interested.
[23:37:23] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless is a dork about Elvish. )
[23:37:27] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper shifted a glance to Amiyna. She didn't say anything, but she didn't need to. She nodded in acceptance.
[23:37:28] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Do you intend to offer such instruction only to those of elven descent?
[23:37:36] Lady Ledaria Dawntreader is the anonymous iguana
[23:37:36] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "Not at all. Any are welcome to attend."
[23:38:10] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "Though, if you will tend your attentions to the first item; the Heritage class is directed towards the Elven people primarily."
[23:38:24] Lady Amiyna Summers nods slowly, perusing the document. "I would like some time to look this over more fully, and to consult with the queen, but I do think your idea has merit."
[23:38:36] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless inclined her head softly to the Lady Chancellor.
[23:39:01] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: If anyone present has questions for Lady Silverwing, please feel free to ask them
[23:39:11] Lord Archayell Skycaller smiles at Sword.
[23:40:29] Veleramar Solarion stroked his chin in thought, shaking his head lightly and remaining without question.
[23:40:58] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless glanced briefly to the window, as the sun set for the evening.
[23:41:37] Lady Amiyna Summers allows a moment for questions to be raised. At the increased silence, she turns her smile again to Lady Silverwing. "I will be happy to discuss this further at our next court session, or if you wish to meet sooner, I will be available."
[23:42:03] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Thank you both for this consideration of the culture of our people.
[23:42:14] [S] [Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless]: "By all means; you need only send word, my lady. I shall welcome you to Quel'rethor, if you have the mind to make a visit."
[23:42:49] You nod at Sword.
[23:42:54] Regina Rennali Sunwhisper nodded her head in acknowledgement, but little more.
[23:43:11] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: Do we have any other business to present to the court?
[23:43:44] Lady Amiyna Summers waits patiently for new business, shifting her weight from one foot to the other and back again.
[23:44:10] Lady Auriel "Sword" Silverwing the Merciless tucked the master copy of the curriculum under her arm, having nothing more to add.
[23:44:33] [S] [Lady Amiyna Summers]: With no more new business, this session of the Phoenix Court is now closed. May the Light keep you all safe in your journeys.
