PostSubject: The morning of the Ball    Tue Feb 01, 2011 2:08 pm

*Its early morning in Gamay city, the sun just starting to stretch the first fingers of light across the land. A small contingent of neat well dressed soldiers, all looking like nutcrackers with rifles slung over their shoulders, march towards one of the biggest houses on the outskirts of the white city. Behind them walks a less ordered group of people, all are wearing leather armour and have swords, shields, pole arms and bows with them. This group seems much more at ease that the former group.

A fairly tall figure darts from the second group to the first group to walk with the captain. She talks with him grins and then runs full speed ahead of both groups towards the large wrought iron gates of Nicholas Hold'em's estate. When she gets to the gates instead of waiting for them to be open she slips a keyring from her belt and opens them herself. She rushes up to the front door and throws both the double doors open before raising her arms and shouting at the top of her lungs “Guys I'm HOME!” Hewie bounds down the hallway and slams into his mistress' legs.

Ariel straightens up and starts to get the rest of the soldiers into the agreed upon hall before seating herself. She starts to play with Hewie while they wait for the rest of the household to wake up.*

((Sorry about taking so long guys. Being ill last week really took it out of me Sad ))

Out in the garden, where he'd been helping with the setting up of varuous things, including the hog/ox roasts, which began cooking at dawn, Cern hears Ariel's joyful shout. Excusing himself, and grabbing a mug of hot tea as he passes one of the many small camps of folks dotted around the grounds, the big wood-troll makes his way into the house-remembering to wipe his feet before entering.
"Captain," Cern teases, knowing that Ariel prefers that her friends address her by her name, "good to see you again," He hands her the steaming mug, smiling broadly.

*The Doc emerges from the kitchens looking far smarter than usual - it doesn't suit him.*

"Morning Cern! - Ariel! So good to see you- and it looks like you bought soldiers from Gamay *and* the Albion Army - Excellent!. Ishtar's around here somewhere so all 3 of you should be able to brief the soldiers and then conduct a search of the house- errr- see Nick for which areas *don't* need searching! When you're done, let me know and I'll go and see if the magic bods and the extra staff have arrived.

One more thing- because I'm Steward today, I am effectively everyone's bitch. *please* don't take too much advantage of this!"

Cern glances at The Doc oin his uncharacteristically smart clothes.
"Did you lose a bet?"

*Doc grins*

"Yeah, the day I met you - I'll be in the Kitchen gettin' ordered around by Lisa if anyone needs me. Let me know when you're ready for the Hocus-Pocus mob."

"OK- Youre one of the people in charge of security, you're the boss."

*Shouts towards the gates*

"Alright boys, let in the wizards"

"Oh I doubt that very much. This is a mixture of Mages, Shamen and and Coporealists employed by Lady Beramode and the Starfall Council. Lady B has some very scary people working for her. I'll be in the kitchen. Let me know when the search of the grounds and the warding is complete. I've let them know that Eloraine will be arriving so they shouldn't block her arrival. When the warding and searching is done, I'll let in the extra staff."


*Doc departs for the kitchen"

*Keeping a wary eye on the surroundings Elias walks into the kitchen*

Morning...

I presume that was the warding team outside? Anyone?

*Elias peers around looking for a familiar face*

*Doc waves*


Morning Elias, yes- that's Beramode's finest out there *looks at pocket watch* they should be done in a minute. Hey Cern, Ishtar, Ariel, how's the search going?

*Elias looks over at those entering the room, nodding slightly in greeting*

Things seem to be moving along here...all on schedule?

*He turns and looks expectantly at the others awaiting a reply*

*Ishtar has a large grin on her face as she enters followed closely by Ariel*

The mages seem to have done their job well. Una says she can not see into the place when on the outside or see out when in. Such wonderful things magic is!

*She taps her lip in thought for a moment*

I found nothing out of the ordinary on the grounds. All looks well. Some people seem interested in what the well dressed where doing. They seemed more interested in those strange warriors with powder sticks though.

Yes, I must have a word with the peopel of Albion sometime...

Thanks for the All- Clear, Ishtar and Ariel. *shouts* RIGHT LADS, LET IN THE EXTRA STAFF*

Right, If the Magical Mob have done their properly, The only person who should be able to manifest themselves here magically is Eloraine, which she should hopefully do... *looks at watch again*


Blimey, right about now!

*Elias look up at that last comment*...powder sticks?

*looks for help from the others present* Does she mean what I think she means? How many are there with those things and who exactly do they work for?

*Elias seems to have become more alert and his posture changes to allow freer movement*

*Doc looks quizzically at Elias and then catches on*

Ah! I forget that you spend a lot of time errr.... "elsewhere" shall we say. That, Elias, is a regiment of soldiers from the Army Of Albion. There are quite alot of them, hundreds I'd say.

They are from another world, one which may be dying, sad to say. Their King and Queen were taken by You-Know -Who. Nick and I saved the life of their Commanding Officer and ended up as custodians of the Holy Book of Albion. They've since thrown in their lot with Gamay and the King and are aiding us in the war.

You can trust them.

Eloraine marches in looking muddy and a bit dishevelled, muttering something about stupid mages. She looks up and waves to DR. Crook.

"I've got a box full of horses out back waiting for a place to put them. Where are you wanting them?"

*Eloraine nods and smiles.*

"I'll go sort them out then. I take it we are probably one of the last things to happen? Or are we towards the begginning? I need to know these things as it does dictate how much I am allowed to consume, both food and drink wise. I don't know if any of you have tried to race on a full stomach but it is not pleasant."

*She turns on her 'heels' and leaves through the main door, where a rather sleepy looking Vitalany enters from. She holds a mug in her hand and one of the local attempts at a newspaper*

"Ah so some of the entertainment has arrived. I had wondered what that smell coming from behind the house was. Ah Mr. Crook there you are. There where some men around the front of the house making a terrible racket. They appeared to have some large type of modle covered in canvas on a cart and where arguing over if this was the right house or not. If I where you I would quickly go and get it sorted before they run off with what ever it is.

*Doc's face lights up* Ah! Quick, let 'em in- that's my model ship , that is! ...and someone please tell Eloraine that the races will be taking place this afternoon, before the main evening's festivities.
