Over in t one corner of the marquee, The three ladies and their families chat and greet those who come to see the babies and pass on their blessings.  In mist cases, the greetings are short are cheery, although Pipre stops to chat with her old adventuring friends.

Both lady Luna and lady Victoria throw Pipre asharp glances as she mentions her involvement with the brothel, but Valaria steps in quickly and deflects the conversation.  "Isn't that lovely, grandmother, Pipre is going to start a college to work with our school?" Which turns the conversation back to  topics more suitable for genteel ladies, such as these.

"I look forward to meeting her and this is a party."  Domitius  said as he summoned a servant over with a wave.  "One moment my dear before we meet the guests of honour." he turns to the esrvant and says "My dear fellow, if you would be so good as to just pop outside the marquee you will find my man Barbatius with three packages.  If you would bring them back to me I have a Name Day gift."

As the servant hurries off Domitius returns his attention to Alisa "It's traditional in my family to give a gift to a child on their Name day, something for them when they are a little older usually."  the servant returned shortly with three ornately carved wooden cases the lid of which had the heraldric charge entitled to each of the three children.

Why thank my good man, now if you would follow me.  he guided Alisa through the crowd to the three ladies and their charges Domitius bowed "My ladies, may I introduce my Lady Alisa D'Medvyed, we bring blessing to you on this joyous occasion and gifts for each of the young ones. he indicated the servant foward and each of the ladies recieved their relevant case.

Opening the case revealed red velvet inlay and carved wooden blocks of a variety of bright colours, each one individually carved to have the symbols of the houses active in Midmarch a quick glance revealed D'Medvyed, Solanus, Winters, Vallani as well as leMaistre, Sylvius D'Lodovka, de Lebeda-Ondari as well as many others.

"Yes...it is traditional," Alisa concurred with Domitius, suddenly feeling a little badly she'd not thought of that.   She'd been so wrapped up in presenting well for him, she hadn't thought as much of the ones who were the true focus of this gathering.    She made a short mental note that just because someone was making your heart beat do funny things, it was not an excuse to not think of others.

As she was introduced, she made a proper curtsy, which even as only very minor nobility she'd been educated to do as a girl.   "My ladies, it is an honor."

Once she glimpsed what Domititus had prepared for them, she smiled, nodded admiringly.   It was splendid, classy, very fitting.

When there was an appropriate opening, Alisa stepped nearer to the little ones, raised her open right hand, and spoke softly but audibly-  "Arleia toreth hal somal, porei ess berete mor kardiven al-treyis havistra."     

Those words where Azlanti.   She did not speak Azlanti -- yet, she'd heard it whispered enough by Her, that she knew it by heart, as well as intuitively understood what it meant.  Which she then repeated in the common tongue:

"May the moon's light shine always to ward and light your way, and ever guide you safely back home."     As she gazed on their sweet, innocent faces, she felt for a moment that she would cry - though managed not to do so.

Bai, Vik and Valaria take the gifts for their respective children and are clearly very pleased.   They make their tanks,  and welcome Alisa to Tuskm, complementing her on her dress, and then  get carried away identifying all of the coats of arms.


Ladies Luna and Victoria are suitable impressed as well, and get involved in helping identify all the crests, and are suitable distracted from Pipre's business ventures.

Cyrus and Henry, standing alongside their wives, shake Domitius's hand and  greet Alisa politely.

Kiera simply takes up another comfortable wall, looking for a quiet, out-of-the way place to just peoplewatch while staying out of the way.  She quietly watches the crowd move about, watching everything with a smile.

People move around, as new people come up to greet the new born and their mothers.

Domitius warmly greeted Lord Henry and Cyrus before moving off with Alisa as he secured them both a new glass of punch he asked "Alisa what language was that you spoke to the babies?  I did not recognise it?" he was curious as it was another mystery that that he was eager to unravel about the beautiful woman who had csptured his attention if not perhaps a little more.

"It is from Quinn's shop," she told the ladies, regarding her gown.   "I was so impressed with their work.  I'll be sure to pass along the complement, the next time I visit the shop." 

She took the offered punch from Domitius, taking a sip as she moved off with him.

"It is Azlanti.   And no, I do not speak Azlanti.   But, I have heard phrases...things that She has whispered, often when the moon is at its brightest.   And, I can understand them...I think because it is communicated at the level of the soul, if that makes sense.  I don't know how to better explain it.    I've memorized them, anyway.   And they serve as blessings, or wardings."   

They were in Kiera's vicinity once again -   "Ah, Domitius, here, let's go over and say 'hi', shall we?" 

"Kiera!  How've you been?   This is Domitius -- whom I met recently at Iomedae's shrine.  She and I and a few others were escort for an aristocrat, and had some fun along the way," she told Domiitus.   "Um, sort of fun..."

Kiera, a pleasure to meet you.  So what sort of fun did you mean? I assume not this kind. Domitius waves his hand at the festivities around them.  "Was there some trouble on the road?"

Alisa nodded.  "Goblins.   An ambush, very cunning, that included a helpless 'child' whom was in reality an illusion cloaked goblin.   Kiera, and another of our troupe, had gone out as scouts, and came under attack.   Things got a little hairy, but we did pull through.  Um, obviously," she added with a smile, sipping her punch.
