"Ah, that's a very good question," the hooded man replied to Celestina's query. "The chief reason is the energy released by our... wares. It's like..." He paused, trying to think of a term. "Wi... Fi? Ah, yes, the 'winged filament' is what they call it. It's basically an invisible wave of energy released by magical things— think of it as unconscious telepathy. Brightstones and humans being the only sources of magic... This place would be like a beacon if it were any higher." The plinking of dripping water began echoing from further down the hall. "Plus, the air's easy to use for magic-types. That's more a bonus than anything, though, this establishment being our most notoriously secure."
He nodded as if to reässure, and immediately began speaking to Richter in a less enthused tone: the tone that he used with inferiors, apparently. "Kegs don't last down here, you know. Maybe check the lounge, second room on your left. But you know that already." His eyes drifted to the trails that Richter had made in the wall earlier, which had almost completely faded already, and he took a few steps toward the exit before snapping his gaze back to Celestina and Richter. "I trust your escort can answer most of your concerns, but do you have any other burning questions?" he asked, his voice once again pleasant.

Meanwhile, one of the guards outside could be heard muttering.
"Should we tell someone?" he murmured, sounding concerned.
"Don't think there's a huge need," the other guard muttered back. "It's pretty obvious, don'tcha think?"
"Yeah... I'll tell the next person who comes by, I suppose," the first guard finished.
"Fair enough... I'd better make another round," the other said, nodding and walking off to the main part of the street.
The guard grunted as he bumped into Domus, then swerved around to face Kilan. Looking down for a moment, he realised that he was barely outside the "guarded" area of the alley and therefore could not do anything, so instead he cleared his throat and began making his way around the gathered group, searching for a spot in the crowded street where he could get through quickly.

"Well, that's one of them," August said as Etzel left the table. "Now how about your friend playing the 'scared' act over there? ... One moment." He got up from the table, making his way to the bar counter and pouring himself a large mug of ale. He took a large gulp and topped off the mug again. "Nobody wants drinks, I'm guessing?" he asked, returning to the table and slamming the mug down.
"With all due respect, we're supposed to be negotiating, not drinking," Karida replied, annoyed further. Was this an elaborate joke?!
"Why not both?" August replied, chuckling into the mug while taking another sip. "We /are/ going to be here a little while, judging from the way you two are acting... The council and their cronies have always been masters of inefficiency anyway."


"Now, now." Savas said. "We're supposed to be negotiating, not arguing. If we all could be civil..." Not stopping to wait for Karida to respond, he continued, to August. "Now, as I was saying. Put your offer on the table, and I'll make a counter offer. That's how people usually do business, no? I'd prefer to skip all the formalities and get to the real discussion." The last part was a blatant lie.

Yesterday,

I watched three men die because one man sneezed in a room full of blood and shit and light.

Today,

three more men go in, cheap mops and each other's lives in their hands.

Yesterday,

I watched a man I admired gunned down for leaving a rose for a girl whose life was tattered by trauma she never deserved.

Today,

she doesn't remember, and three halls down I can hear her screaming.

Yesterday,

I watched a group of soldiers go down fighting against the corpses of comrades who'd died before them.

Today,

we test another sample, this time on children.

Yesterday,

I watched five men and women gunned down in an abandoned factory no one cares about.

Today,

it happens again and again. Every eleven seconds. Forever.

Yesterday,

I watched a man sit comfortably in a nice armchair, sipping scotch and laughing as he ordered a woman to simply stop breathing.

Today,

he gets the day off of work detail for good behavior.

Yesterday,

I watched hundreds of men and women in orange jumpsuits herded like animals into empty rooms that filled with gas and fire.

Today,

hundreds more are told they have a chance for a lighter sentence, and a chance to serve their country.

Yesterday,

I watched the world nearly die in a thousand thousand terrible ways. Sometimes we would have had time to scream.

Today,

I'm alive to write about it. You want happy endings? Fuck you.

You're alive to read it.

God help us all.

Hey, this guide is now a thing. Check it out if you're interested in Roleplaying.

[12:45:45 PM] Firefly Vansalon: btw guys
saying this in advance because it's relevant to planning RP things

I'm going to be out of state June 14-July 18. I officially have a job/internship thing/whatever you want to call it at the Lutheran Camp on mt. Petit Jean, so I'm leaving for there a day before the first week of camp starts (pretty sure I go a day early, anyway).
[12:46:06 PM] Firefly Vansalon: I'll have my phone, of course, but I'll never get a chance to be on except MAYBE sunday nights.
[12:474 PM] Firefly Vansalon: Monday-friday I'll be busy with the actual camp proceedings, saturday I'll be busy cleaning up (along with all the other staff) and sunday morning we'll be starting preperations for the next group.

Domus witheld the urge to scream and shout against the man who bumped into, only due to him noticing the man was wearing a guard uniform. Wisely he just did as if nothing happened and wandered with his mind back to what was going on in the castle and hoped they would be able to continue their mission soon. They had been idle long enough.

((yeah, I say castle.. but what is it really?))

"Begging your pardon, but I must excuse y— er, myself," the man talking to Celestina and Richter said. A blast of wind could be felt as he murmured what must have been an incantation and sped up the staircase leading outside.
"Sir!" The remaining guard outside saluted him instantly. "There's, um, something you should know about."
"Tell your nearest superior for now," he replied, aware that the issue would likely travel up tbe hierarchy right back to him. "For now, why not take care of these intruders?" He gestured at the group standing outside the alley. The guard nodded.
"Hey, you lot!" he yelled at the group before approaching Domus, the nearest person. "Whatever suspicious activities you intend on conducting, you should take them somewhere else. Unless you have business here." He drew his sword and walked forward until he was within spitting distance. The hooded man in the back of the alley chuckled before leaping up, a gust of wind carrying him to the rooftops, and he began walking, each step carrying him several meters as he left.

((It isn't a castle; it's a building in the city with the entrance in the alleyway. the building is pretty unassuming since the majority of the structure is underground. Again sorry for the terrible start so far, but shit's about to get real prematurely to make up for it awwww yis))

-

"I guess you have a point," August replied. "Okay, so... How about we start with half of these people not getting pardoned, seeing how the council dislikes justice so much." He flicked the small paper from earlier so it floated back down the table to Savas. "Here, how about you look over the names again and we'll decide whose lives we're going to ruin."
"It wouldn't have to be that way if they'd just comply," Karida murmured. It was intended more as a thought than a remark.
"Of course it wouldn't be thay way if they let the council invade their homes and their private lives," August said, his tone gaining some bitterness.
"It just sounds like you're expecting special treatment from the council for no reason, that's all... Unless one of those 'estates' is yours?" Karida asked.
"Why don't you take a look at that paper with your cohort there?" August said impatiently, glancing at the front window of the inn and taking another gulp of his drink.

'They need to speak for themselves...' Kilan thought to himself. "Wait a bit, y'hear? We're here-" He stopped as soon as the man drew his sword. "Wait 'bit!" He spoke harsher through his teeth. "We wanted a break from this crowd, yeah? Or is that not allowed in this rulebook?" The teen spoke, readying in case a scuffle was in order.

"I, I, I do apologize, g-good man." Domus stumbled over his words, feeling intimidated by the guard. Nevertheless, he had to speak up and continue the conversation. "As, as my friend here says, we, um, broke from th-the crowd. We are, t-tourists you see and, well, we, um, wanted to take a look around the ar.. ar.. area." Domus started to sweat a little, which he hoped the guard wouldn't notice. "Per-perhaps you.. you can t-tell us about-t-this beautiful city?" Domus asked the guard, hoping someone else would take the clue to knock-out or whatever the guard from behind while he was distracted.

Savas ran his eyes down the paper, looking for any names he recognized. He cast a subtle but pointed look at Karida as she spoke, his eyes betraying him. He wasn't good at sending silent messages, but he was trying with all his ability to tell her to shut up.

~

Aeronwen drew her spear on instinct as the man pulled a sword, drawing it off her back. She had lived in urban environments long enough to have dealt with thieves and muggers multiple times, and weapons put her on edge. Pointing Whitewing at the man, she told him "Perhaps we can speak when you're not trying to hold us at swordpoint?"
