Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Lirin's keen senses pick up much from the crowded gala of the Tri-Khan. Most of it is gossip talk, some of it simply business. Guild merchants meeting alongside Delzahn nobles to discuss the price of goats, milk, and cheese in the upcoming week. Just a few feet of way, hoping the sounds of the party were covering up their voices, a few males stared at Seven-Folded Rose. "Not much for a looker is she?" His friend was a man with hair just turning gray, "It's a shame, for certain. Coulda been a pretty thing if she didn't look like such a brute."

Though among the sounds of party guests is also a dull thundering coming from outside the building - almost like a storm, but both too quiet to be and on a night that is clear.

-

Even at the table with the cider bowl, it was easy to notice people weren't willing to approach Zhu Yin, but they were all staring. The skin of bronze was certainly a factor. Her pauldrons made of demon gold and starmetal were another. The Delzahn included virtually every deity from the dragons to the Unconquered Sun himself in their worhsip, but it was hard to ignore the preaching dogmatic monks who lived in the Northern parts of Chiaroscuro warning of demon gods of old.

Of course, any attempt to catch people looking caught heads turning to look away instead. Except for one, a man with piercingly blue eyes and nearly white air despite looking young. His gaze stays on you, even meeting your eyes when you turn. He even smiles a bit when you look.

-

Ixie, Fa'ul has two intimacies towards her mother. "Major Tie: Mother (Love)" and Minor Principle: "My mother only wants me to live her life. I want more". Of course, her major intimacy will be boosting her Resolve to higher than your roll. [-1 for curiosity, +3 for love of Mother]

"No, I couldn't reveal the details. What if it got out," Fa'ul insisted, wanting her husbands reaction to her dress, though it was clear some hesitation came from leaving her mother to be with some strange winged woman.

Her mother was quick to confirm, "Don't worry, my daughter, we'll make sure you look immaculate on your wedding day. With or without a few feather trinkets. You inherited your mother's good looks after all. Some people just aren't so lucky." She shot a look at Ixie filled with spite. She then lets out a small forced laugh and reminds, "She's already said she has trouble cleaning them without a beak - hardly the type of thing you'd want to wear on a wedding day."

12:20, Today: Sol Invictus, for the NPC Hari-sah, rolled 1 success using 7d10 with the White Wolf Exalted system with a target of 7 with rolls of 6,8,3,2,5,3,6.  Remove Intimacy towards Ixie's wings.

I continue to roll horrible, so she still has Wings (Curiosity Piqued)

Then you're looking at a Profile Character action (p225). Perception + Investigation to get some basic idea of the type of person he is by appearance, dress, demeanor, etc.

Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Ixie gave Hari-sah a vacant expression in return for the venomous look, then quickly glanced over her shoulder, as if to check for someone else, behind her, the subject of the sneer. She looked back at Hari-sah, pointe done finger at her self with a mildly shocked expression, then covered her lips with a dainty hand, chuckling. Clearly, the old lady's eyes were failing her.

Ixie draped her wings around her shoulders lightly at that, crossed one arm up, and gingerly plucked a single feather, careful to take one that was a touch worn. She traced it through the air lightly, offering it to Fa'ul. "I understand, wouldn't want to spoil your surprise. If you change your mind, though, just come to the Plaza with this." She chimed with a hint of warmth, before glancing to Hari'sah. She did have a bit of a curious interest in this drama, now - at the least, it was a fun diversion, and Fa'ul did want more for herself - Ixie knew that secret sort of longing all too well. A desire to ... if not escape, at least, to be more than the world wanted her to be.

"Yes, we can't possibly admit to putting actual effort into our looks, can we? I'm not afraid to admit that it takes attention to take care of them. " Ixie quipped back to the old woman, deciding to let her off easier this time - she didn't, after all, want to push Fa'ul away before she got to know and perhaps help the girl. "Really, there's more to life than just looking pretty, though. You have to think about how you're living."

She turned her eyes back to Fa'ul's briefly, and her lips took on a soft, sympathetic smile. Her gaze was knowing, and more gentle than she'd acted thus far. Quietly, she sought to share a sentiment without words, her wings and eyes giving a gentle flutter, head gently tipping in a coy and warm invitation. Then, she turned her eyes to the room, looking for an excuse to step away... Still, she lingered near enough to try and pick up the reaction, and, if either of the women wanted to retort or interject, she was, in fact, still listening.

Ixie's going to make an Charisma + Presence action to convince Fa'ul to meet her later

2+3+1+2stunt +4m -3 = 9 dice
Intention: Convince Fa'ul to meet with me at some point
New/Stronger Justification: Tapping her desire for 'more' to her life than the thus-far displayed vanity of her mother :D

Result: 7 Rolled Successes

Going to Read Intentions Hari-sah to try and get a sense of what stake she has in her daughter's love life. Is she truly concerned, or seeking some sort of arrangement for her that is beneficial to her in some way? Is she exploiting her daughter, or just being overbearing?

Result: 1 success - no dice)

Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Politely smiling back at the woman standing a head taller than him, Lirin hears the two men talking and infinitesimally shakes his head in disapproval before refocusing on Rose.  "Interesting is good, I hope?" he asks, trailing off for a moment to focus on the distant sound outside.

What is that? he wonders to himself as he strains to hear it more clearly, focusing on his training back in Nexus, temporsily blocking out his other sense to amplify his hearing.

OOC:
Perception+Awareness to hear what it is, spending four motes from peripheral with the stunt that's 13 dice, with double 9s

Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Fa'ul takes the feather with a smile. Before she can even say whether or not she'll consider the offer however, her mother begins to pull her to the side, reminding her and Ixie of the Delzahn tradition, "A woman's honor is her beauty," before the two leave the company of the bird woman.

--

It might have been difficulty over the ruckus of the party to hear, at least for most people, but Lirin drowned out the sound. It came through as clear as memories of sneaking into homes of Guild merchants in the East. He heard footsteps - but enough of them to make the road rumble like thunder. A crowd had clearly formed not far away and it sounded far too numerous to be just more guests.

Ixie cracked a grin as she watched Hari retreat with her daughter, sparing her the need to concoct an excuse to break the conversation off entirely.  That had been fun, but she did hope that Fa'ul would take her up on her offer at some point. Ixie knew that dwelling on the sad situation wouldn't help, though, so she put it aside and polished off her drink with a laugh, passing her empty glass off to one of the servants.

Perception + Awareness Check: 6 Successes

Ixie did pick up on the cacaphonous sound, once she didn't have an actual conversing match going on. Her eyes fluttered as she turned her head toward the noise, and she pressed her lips together, thinly. "Huh... That's odd. What's all that racket?" She mused softly, before ducking along toward the stairs, looking to ascend up to the upper level of the party and go get a view of the outside from the balcony.

 (assuming such a thing exists, given the fancy locale, it seems feasible!)

Failing to learn anything of use.
]

Yin noticed the smiling man, but she couldn't tell what he was after. She chose to ignore him for now since she was far less interested in him than he seemed to be in her. She could tell that he wanted her attention and that he would approach her eventually.

So she took a cup of cider and sniffed it a little. She wasn't unfamiliar with luxury, but she was unfamiliar with this kind of luxury. Sure, she had been living in a grand temple where she had gotten everything for free---but getting something for free didn't mean she was privileged. It meant that people donated their belongings to the temple, and she ate food every day because kind people cooked it for her.

This felt like luxury for luxury's sake, and that was a bit uncomfortable. She would be rude if she didn't enjoy herself, but it didn't feel quite right to indulge in all of this without at least showing some gratification to the ones responsible for it.

She took a sip of the cider, enjoyed the taste, and then thanked the waitor for offering it to her.

Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Silken Sash had arrived at the party along with the others, in a timely manner. While he hadn't originally been on the guest list, a special 'connection' from a few days before had been so nice as to get him on the list of invites for the Tri-Khan's party. The announcer's bafflement as to his title made him chuckle, lifting a hand to his lips to hide the smile.

The young man's skin was pale, his hair, the color of raven feathers, trailing down to his shoulders. Although he was slender in build, his face was sharply-sculpted, masculine, with piercing green eyes. The robe wrapped around his body was a light blue, with an obi the color of a string of pearls.

He had danced around the outer skirts of the party, both literally and figuratively, while tending to a drink or two. In his line of "work", it was important to get a good read on everything in the area, especially the people and their social standing.

For a moment, his eyes settled on Seven-Folded Rose.

Ugly, perfect. He had thought. Until his eyes settled down on her clothes. Poor. Nevermind.

Then, Sash caught sight of Ixie. They had met once before, gotten acquainted, and in the end, the handsome man had found her far more valuable as a friend than a temporary source of income. He had heard her name earlier, but hadn't wanted to disturb her, the social butterfly she was. But now seemed like the perfect time to approach. Heading towards the stairs, he briskly made his way to her side, brushing one of the long sleeves against her playfully.

"Been keeping out of trouble, Swallow?" He asked, 'swallow' being a nickname he'd given in reference to her exotic plumage.

Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Interrupted on her tip up to the balcony, Ixie gave a little jump at his arrival, and grinned, turning to face him with her typical grin. There was just a hint of mischief there, but that was really quite usual for her. "That depends on what you call trouble, Sashy. Probably less trouble than you, though." she teased, giving him a nudge with her wing. "C'mon upstairs with me, I thought I heard some weird noise outside, so I was gonna have a look off the balcony." she invited, continuing to walk up, but at a more sedate pace - she had to do that for everyone, it seemed. Still, Silken Sash's company was worth the slowdown.

Ixie had initially taken him for a very pretty her, and, slightly tipsy, had made a pass his way. In the end they'd laughed off her mistake together, given how apologetic she'd become after that earnest misunderstanding. That they were both somewhat troublesome rogues in their own right certainly gave them some room to commiserate over drinks.

"Hehe, so, how did you get an invitation? The herald sounded more confused than when he tried to say my name."

Chapter 1: The High and Lows
The easiest way to see outside was from the door, and as the Tri-Khan's man, followed quickly by Rose neared the door, it was obvious that outside the tower sat a throng of people. None were dressed well, though some had rather nice, if plain, looking clothing, others neared rags. The Tri-Khan's guards are clearly issuing warnings to stay back, but the unruly crowd seems unwilling to hear them out. There are not enough to truly cause a riot, but certainly enough for there to be some concern over what to do.

The Tri-Khan's fully functioning First Age tower drowns out enough of the sound that from inside, making out any one voice is impossible from inside. The chatter of the party is enough to cover the calls from outside - or at least no one seems to be noticing the noise in the setting.

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
"I assure you, I never cause trouble." He said with a smile, and a mischievous gleam in his eyes. While Silken Sash would have done his best to match the young woman's pace, he appreciated the fact that she was willing to slow down for him. "Ah, that was funny, wasn't it? The look on his face- I almost blew my cover!" He joked in an excited whisper, his typical demeanor fading now that he had someone to gossip with.

"But, I met a noble a few days ago who let mention of the party slip during conversation. So naturally, I had to snag an invitation. ...And this." Sash loosened the ring on his finger, a silver band with a small green ring in its center, and presented it to her. "It matches your feathers, don't you think?"

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Ixie led them along casually, toward either the balcony (if accessible) or the door, to get a look outside while they conversed. Along the way, she continued their conversation with a playful laugh. "Mhm~ I'm glad you're here. Most people here seem so stuffy and uptight." she complained with a little shrug of her shoulders - and wings.

As Sash went on to explain snagging an invitation, and then pulled off his elegant emerald ring, Ixie's eyes gave a briefly confused little flutter as he offered it to her. "Erm... hehe... Bit early for that, huh?" She covered her lips, briefly distracted from walking over to take a look out by the offer of the ring. She seemed almost giddy at first, before taking it in hand and holding it up to the light. She knew, of course, that it wasn't any sort of actual proposal, and laughed it off without a word about it. "It really is pretty. And it does bring out my feathers. It's just the right shade, but..." She knew there was more to it, and after a moment of consideration, she put it together. And then she gave Sash her playful but stern glare - sharp eyes, but a warm smile, threatening to become her characteristic grin. She just couldn't bring herself to be too upset with him, despite not exactly approving of stealing in general - a little bit of liberation of trinkets from the most wealthy wouldn't hurt anyone, though. She'd pilfered a bit to make a point in the past, too.

"Sooo~ this noble. You aren't trying to pawn this off on me to get me into trouble, are you, Sash?" she teased, knowing full well that he wasn't, but the possibility still existed. Either way, she did like the ring. She kept it in her hand for now, turning to continue back to their viewpoint (whichever it was going to end up being.)

Ixie frowned, seeing the moderate crowd of poor folks beyond the walls. She bit her lip, and lowered her head for a moment, then looked aside to Sash, slightly raising her shoulders in a wordless shrug. She shifted off with him away from everyone else. "...Looks like a bit of commotion? You think anything's going on with this party that might prompt that kind of reaction...? I don't really know too much about the details of the party, honestly..." she confessed. "I hope nobody gets hurt out there..." She didn't sound glum so much as optimistic about it. But then, that was Ixie - she always sought the silver lining to a storm cloud.

She rolled the ring over in her palm, then brought it back up, looking to Sash with a bit of a lack of certainty, but she at least had her usual smile back on. Her eyes still held a bit of concern. She did care about the disenfranchised, of course - even the ones beyond Grandmother Bright's plaza. Despite that, though, the immediate question quite literally at hand was asked without words... 'is this for me?'

@GM: Is there any sort of rolls that would be acceptable for seeing what information I might have that might shed some light on why there might be said crowd outside/picking up on the mood motivating them - I doubt Ixie can discern the true purpose of this party (it might be an investigation or bureaucracy roll, in which case it's right out. If Socialize can do it, maybe.

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
"In my line of work, it can be good to be the only charming one in the room. Less distractions that way." Silken Sash chuckled.

The idea of proposal made him smile, especially considering how the two of them had first met. "Well, aren't you cheeky. Trust me, if I was proposing, the ring would be far bigger." The look in his eyes was mischievous. His tone dropped. "The woman that ring belonged to won't be coming looking for it any time soon, I assure you. So, it's yours, if you want it."

Then, as if realizing the possible connotations of his assurance, he cringed a bit, shaking a hand. "That is to say, she's from another land. I sincerely doubt she'd spend hundreds more than that ring is worth to go after it."

Peering from their vantage point, a frown came over Sash's lips as they gazed upon the less fortunate below them. Pursing his lips, he touched the tips of his fingers against his mouth. He couldn't help but remember the time that he, too, was on the outside and looking in.

"Honestly, I'm not sure what the occasion is for this party, if there even is one. But, if you give me a little time to work my magic, I'm sure that I could dig up a thing or two." He offered, a smile perking up the edge of his lips a tad.

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Ixie gave a little pout, and gently, she bopped Sash lightly in the back of the head with her wing. "Hey~ I'm here too, you know~!" she countered his point about being the only charming one, beaming all the while. When he decided to give her the ring, she briefly lit up again, before his words gave her suspicious pause.

Only to be assauged by his explanation a moment later. She laughed, hopped a foot off the ground, and threw her left and arm wing around Sash. Her weight hung off of his shoulders for a moment as she squeeze dhim in a friendly hug - but she was quite light, all considered.  "hehehe, Alright, alright. Thanks, Sashy~! I love it."  Ixie pecked his cheek playfully, hopped down, and slid the ring on.

As Sash shifte dhis focus to the crowd outside, and the nature of the party, Ixie chimed in. "Actually, I think that would be pretty helpful. Huh..." she paused for a moment, and peered across the room, spotting that priestess she'd spoken to before. "Can you help me out with figuring that out?" she prompted Sash. "I wanna try and see if we can diffuse that situation, just ... don't want anyone out there to get hurt. I've got an idea, at least. I'm gonna go try and get something started on talking the crowd down a bit while you figure the party out, Mhmkay? I think I know someone who might be better off talking to the crowd, honestly. People tend to have mixed reactions to me, and that's not really what we need out there..." she prompted with a sweet, optimistic little smile.

It really was impossible to bring her down.

For either of these, I would say it's a Read Intentions action against the room or the group outside. Perception + Socialize.

-

Lirin and Rose can clearly see the guards are not having much luck to get the crowd dispersing...at least not with words alone, though obviously it's hard to tell how long it will take for it to get violent, even as several of the men and women outside begin to toss small stones at the glass building.

Inside, the echoing sound of the pebbles hitting the ancient glass sounds more like a light rain fall. At least to those distracted by their conversations. A few people perk up. Zhu Yin, mostly ignoring the guests for her cider, can tell the sound is not quite rain - it's too slow between strikes and too erratic. The few other people becoming distracted from their party going doesn't help to alleviate feelings that something is amiss.

In reply to Quixotic Quetzal (msg # 47):

The men and women outside are certainly angry, though it is not easy to tell what unless you're heading out there. You're no mind-reader. The party you're attending however is much easier to get a read of - the people are worried about something and this party seems to be explicitly a way to draw people's nerves from tenseness to ease.

-

In reply to Lirin (msg # 48):

If there is a leader, he has become as embroiled in the crowd as the others. No one voice shouts above the others - it's a full on mob. If one voice did start them out, he or she was as entangled by passions as the rest of them.

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
Sash fluttered his eyelashes a bit, playfully. "Swallow, you're asking the diplomat extraordinaire. I'll have a solution before the hour." He said confidently, reaching out and grazing the side of her face comfortingly. Her optimism always did help relieve him, as if with Ixie around it was impossible for him to fail. Breaking away from his companion, the raven-haired Exalt made his way towards the priestess giving her a small bow to show his respect.

Speaking with her as he was had the potential to be a risky endeavor. After all, when Silken Sash was announced at the party, the man couldn't even find a title to address him by. Taking a deep breath, he focused his energy, using his essence to blend into the atmosphere even further.

"Greetings, madame. I must say, it's so wonderful that the Tri-Khan could bring us all together like this, wouldn't you agree?"

Silken Sash activates Spurious Presence, for six personal motes.

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
It took a while for Yin to recognize what was going on. When she did, she immediately put down her goblet and walked towards the door.

"What is going on outside?" she asked to anyone listening. "I should go talk to them."

Unless someone stopped her (which guards and such probably wanted to do), she would open the door and go outside.

[OOC: Just a note to the ST. If Yin opens the door, people would generally not try to barge in easily. She'd activate MRP at the first attempt of someone trying to barge in. Should be enough to at least get people to hesitate enough for her to close the door behind her or exchange a line or two of dialogue.]

Re: Chapter 1: The High and Lows
"I'm counting on you, Sash~  I hope we can fix whatever's about to happen. It doesn't look pretty." Bidding a quick farewell to Sash while he went to investigate the party, Ixie lightly cavorted her way over to the orichalcum-clad priestess she'd encountered earlier. When Yin wheeled about to head to the door, she found Ixie in her way, the perky, winged girl grinning warmly as she opened her wings and held out a hand. "It sounds like you figured something's going on. Yeah. Come with me. I'll get us out there. It's a whole crowd." Ixie explained, walking with the priestess naturally. She gave a little shrug. "Not sure what they're upset over, yet, I've got a friend looking into it. I thought someone like you might be able to talk them down, though. Last I saw they were throwing rocks." she suggested optimistically. "I just don't want anyone to get hurt..." she said, biting her lower lip.

Ixie led the way back along toward the entrance, giving her wings a ruffle as she stepped up to the door. to try and see if they could get out right now. "We might have to just go upstairs and jump off...?" she mused, until...

She spotted Lirin and Rose nearby, eyes giving a little flutter. "Hey~! Stranger~!" She chimed, stepping over and tapping Lirin on the shoulder. "Hey, you know anything about why there's that mess out there? I was thinking this priestess might be able to  help smooth things over out there, without.. umm.." she paused, glancing at the woman with the hammer. "...Wow, you're...tall. Please don't go hitting anyone with that... not just yet."
