Well not really a bar, various waiting staff are happy to hand out glasses of punch.  There are alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions available.

"Oh! I don't... I'm not noble or anything. No need for Lady's or titles. If our little experiment down here pans out, who knows what the future will hold. But for now, just Zelona is fine." the druid replied with a smile, then listened to Safiya speak of her time over the last few months. "Ooh, that sounds wonderful, living by a waterfall. Very kind of you to help them settle up there!" She nodded to Safiya's questions, "I've been very busy up at Oleg's trading post. I've set up a nice little woodcarver's shop there, that is doing a pretty brisk business of late with all the building and such going on throughout the Midmarch. I'm going to expand my mercantile efforts up there in the future I think, and then we'll see."

Zelona smiled at Kendrik when he came up to the women, though she blushed a bit at the complement on her looks. "Ser Kendrik, you are too kind" she said, obviously unused to both the formal wear and compliments. "A drink would be lovely! And yes, congratulations on your appointment as Marshall. What a great honor, but one well deserved I think."

OOC: figured I'd move Kendrik/Safiya conversation here? if not right I can move this response anywhere!

One of the servants holds out a cup of punch, ready for anyone to take.

Kendrick took two cups of punch and handed one to Zelona. "I look forward to seeing the settlement at the waterfalls. I'm sure it will be a pleasant retreat." When their attention turned to his new appointment, "Ahh yes. It was a surprise actually. But the responsibilities aligned with my personal views quite well. I would like to see the settlements, cities and its people live in harmony. And laws bring harmony especially to those that follow the letter and the spirit of the laws."

Safiya smiles at Zelona. "Well, to be honest, I just picked the closest place to Brevoy I could find for them to settle. I figured it's the safest place for them to be, and it does have it's charms, though the constant hum of the waterfall takes some getting used to. I am glad your business is booming as well. Perhaps some day you can open a shop at the falls as well. You as well, Ser Kendrick. I am glad the council had the wisdom to appoint you in charge of defense. This place is far from tamed yet."

A striking man, middle aged (40s) but tall and well-built still, wearing a black Military rig with Dragon's up the lapels makes his way across the marquee.  "Mr Winters? I wonder we might have a word?" he asks politely.

However, he continues without really waiting for a response.  "Cyrus tells me you have recently made a Vow of Service, so I have brought you a gift to help celebrate.  While Nugget isn't the prettiest horse i we have on the ranch, he is one of the best.  We have left him at the manor in  Ringbridge and you can collect him from there, next time you go that way.  We hope you care for him as well as we know he will care for you.  Don't we Alex?" he says, resting his hand briefly on the shoulder of the young woman next to him.  Only about 18 years old, she is well muscled and wears a simple green dress that sets off her bright ginger hair.

"Yes?" Kendrick responded to the query with a quick nod to Safiya and Zelona. He turned to the speaker, "And you are?"

-------------

Kendrick smiled as he learned of the gift from Cyrus, "Please tell the Knight Commander that I am most grateful for his gift. I will drop by Ringbridge in a few days. Perhaps he will be able to spare a few minutes for me." He smiled and bowed to the young woman by Ferdinand's side.

The man looks amused by the mistake, although his daughter gasps and her eyes open wider in either shock or surprise.  She is just about to speak when yhe man lays a hand on her arm, to quieten her.  "Its alright Alex." he says before turning back to Kendrick and answering his original question.  "I am Sir Ferdinand Ledkno, and Nugget is from my ranch by Restov.  My daughter, Alex, has helped rear Nugget from a foal, and oversaw a lot of his training.  She is a little disappointed to see him go.  But we all, including the horses that we spend so much time training, have to make our own way in the world." he concludes with a caring glance towards his daughter.

"Pardon. Please excuse my mistake." Kendrick responded to Sir Ledkno. He smile grew broader when he learned that Alex as the man's daughter. He gave the father a respectful nod before he turned to his daughter, "Thank you for the precious gift. I will be sure to take care of Nugget. I'm sure that he has been well trained." He turned back to the father, "Perhaps, I may visit your ranch in Restov in the summer so that your daughter and Nugget may visit each other?"

Zelona smiled at Safiya's explanation on how she chose that location for a new settlement, "I hope that my business ventures will be that successful to open craftsmen and shops over Midmarch, but let us take one season at a time. For now I'm joining the council at Oleg's to help it grow apace."

Zelona curstsied when Sir Ledkno came over and introduced himself. "Greetings Sir Ledkno, you are most kind to our Marshal Winters. To you as well Alex!" She added with a smile. "I am Zelona Veralia, Steward of Oleg's to the north."

"Call me Ferdinand," the man says with a smile, "No need to be formal all the time.  You are, of course welcome to visit the ranch, Kendrick, and it will always be good to see Nugget.  However, Alex may well be away.  Henry has kindly agreed to let Alex ride with his troops for a while and then she will probably swing by Zorah's place to say hello and discuss bloodstock exchanges.

Pleased to meet you ladies,"
Ferdinand continues as he turns to greet Safiya and Zelona.  However, something in his glance tells you that he might  be just as interested in the two as women, as he is in their professional capacity.  "I might have to swing past Oleg's on the way home now.  I haven't been there for quite a few months." The comment, and the smile that accompanies it, ares clearly directed at Zelona

Alex scowls at her father.

Zelona blushes slightly at the man's smile as she had done just a few minutes ago when Kendrick complemented her and Safiya's dresses. But again she schools herself and her face quickly.

"Oleg's would be pleased to host you. I am returning up there in a few days myself and could accompany you. We're expanding quickly, and our new bath house should be completed soon if you would care to partake while you're there. There are also many opportunities as we convert Oleg's from a small trading post into a proper town that we can discuss as we travel, Ferdinand." She smiled back at Ferdinand with her last statement. She did spare a look for Alex as she spoke, smiling a symbathetic smile her way as well.

Sensing that Ferdinand may be interested in a more private conversation with Zelona, Kendrick turned to Alex, "Would you like to visit the buffet?" He was looking forward to learn more about the young lady.

"I am afraid we still need to henry about a couple more details.  We took  advantage of a short break in the conversation to come across and speak with you." Ferdinand replies on behalf of both himself and his daughter.

"And it would be a great honour if you were to shoe me your new baths ..." Ferdinand says with a twinkle in his eye, but Alex links her arm through his and guides him away towards the naming corner and a renewed conversation with Henry.

There is one quick glance back over her shoulder,  and then they are out of conversation range.

"Well... that was certainly interesting. Luckily you got a new horse out of that Kendrick!" she said with a smile to the paladin.

"So Kendrick... or should I call you 'marshal' now?" she said with a slightly uncertain laugh. "Either way, what have you been up to recently other than Marshaling? Safiya is busy settling a waterfall and I'm busy trying to help Oleg's grow. What interests drive your passions these days?"

Kendrick watched Alex and her father go. When she turned back, her green eyes seemed to shine brighter. He flashed a smile and almost missed the question from Zelona entirely.

"Please just call me Kendrick." He smiled as he felt warm for the first time. He took a sip of the punch, "I've started my own business, 'Wares and Spices' and joined with a partner to form WSM, it's a mercantile transport. I feel that every community will need the spices that I bring and of course, people will always need the basics. Do you think that Oleg or his wife would like to have a shop at the trading post?"

"Ahh, well we have Oleg's shop there already, but we are growing town. I'm sure as we expand we will need more shops up there and the WSM will be more than welcome to engage in trade with us. Unfortunately, Oleg is stepping down from the town council so that he can focus on his businesses. Fortunately you have a friend in the new councilwoman, me!" Zelona answered Kendrick with a smile. "Svetlana will remain on the council as will Magistrate Garess, but I will now be handling the town's Treasury."
