  • Chronicle of Happenings (18.11.05-18.11.11)

    For the period starting the fifth day of the Eleventh Moon, and ending the eleventh day of the Eleventh Moon, Eighteenth Year of the Recent Awakenings;

    In accordance to the will of the Lord Chamberlain, and in upholding the duties charged to the Office of the Chronicler, we hereby submit an accounting of this week's happenings.


    HAPPENINGS OF THE INNER BAILEY

    Limericks rue the day - 11.07
    Mistress Adeline's Limerick lessons on the grand bridge this week attracted a liltingly large number of gregarious guests from both baileys. On the spot prizes were awarded to ser Tiel and Master Aratan for the following lively limericks:

    Limericks should not be obscene,
    just silly and jolly -- not mean,
    but now and again,
    among even best friends,
    rules can be broken, you see?

    and

    This verse is a form called the limerick,
    in content they are terribly sick,
    frequently lewd,
    and often quite crude,
    and this line here is the end of it.

    Library debuts new event - Teanga Tales! 11.09
    The Royal Library hosted an evening of storytelling, with the tale delivered in the Elven language of Teanga. The original story is being delivered chapter-by-chapter over the next several weeks, and attendees are gifted a copy of the book both in Common and Teanga so that no matter their skill with the language, they can follow the story. The event was so successful in the Inner that a similar event will be hosted to share the story in Northern in the Outer Bailey.

    Chocolate Social - 11.11
    Choca-mocha entertainment and velvety smooth socialisation filled the Royal Ballroom the last day of the week. Jointly hosted by Ladies Sinvy and Amoret's houses, the semi-formal chocolate themed event was a well-received comfort break from the angular hazards found elsewhere. A challenging game dared participants to discover ways to describe chocolate, and the Royal Cooks served up multiple flavours of chocolaty goodness in the forms of cocoas and sweets. Guests were presented with gifts of chocolate treats and a pretty or dashing piece of jewelry, depending on whether the guest was a ser or sera.


    HAPPENINGS OF THE OUTER BAILEY

    The Goblin King - 11.06
    The King of the Trash Heap, King Bartox the goblin, emerged from his refuse kingdom and came to the bridge center, where he traded with many for new trash. Rotten food was particularly enjoyed by the goblin king, though he also had a penchant for bloody and dirty items. The best trades of the day went to ser Mitsuko and sera Euphelia; the former received a bronze sphere discarded, allegedly, from the Wizard's tower, while the sera received a black diamond.

    Awakeners on search for most inspiring phrases
    The Guild of the Awakeners, who help those newly awoken by Her Majesty, Queen Vivienne, and those returning from long slumber, has launched a contest going until nearly the end of the Eleventh Moon. The contest asks people to write in with an inspiring phrase, with each guest limited to two entries only. The entries will be made public for voting early in the Twelfth Moon, with all submissions being bound into a book for the Royal Library. The two top-voted entries will win 50 and 25 coins respectively.

    Clockworks Defeated! - 11.07
    The Outer bore witness to an invasion of a stone golem accompanied by what are assumed to be clockwork creatures late in the evening of the seventh day. Valiant defense of the Royal Alchemist's demesne was made, with the golem crumbling to dust as a result. As it is assumed that the attack would not be a lone event, several of the clockwork creatures were captured for examination. Though no more clockworks were seen for the rest of the week, plans were made to relocate Master Orson, the Royal Alchemist, to the Inner Bailey for safety.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as we humbly ask that the readers indicate to us through their discretion any falsehood we may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Lord Chamberlain, the Chronicler's Office, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm;

    Chronicler of the Court, sera Euphelia
    Senior Chronicler, sera Roisine
    Junior Chroniclers, sera Setsuna
    Aspirant Chroniclers, sera Caillean
