Edolon: Empires at War  

Go Back   Edolon: A Tournament of Shadows > The Game Board > Kingsreach > Blacktide

Blacktide The largest port city in Kingsreach, with a population of almost 36,000. Blacktide serves as a business center where trade and enterprise thrive. For whatever reason, the city is not exactly host to the friendliest sort of people, and has a bit of a reputation for not being the sort of place you want to be alone in at night. In recent years, Blacktide was plagued by a series of riots, but it was put down before it could escalate and now the city is recovering well.

Default 4.29 mid-morning - "..." - OPEN

Ziamara kept her pace easy, her foosteps light and slow in keeping with the grace of a princess and the weakness lingering in her. She still did not feel her best, but her long golden hair shone and the cosmetics on her cheeks were subtle enough to suggest languor rather than illness--better to seem lax than weak. At least today.

She leaned on her guard's arm as they reached her appointed rooms. Mark kept glancing sidelong at her but he didn't ask. She retrieved a book and sent a page for the latest musician trying to earn her patronage (a local lad from Blacktide, who wasn't bad with a lute but terrible with verse) and the slow procession made its way down to one of the sheltered arcades within Castle Wolfe's inner walls. A small courtyard, meant more for growing Lady Wolfe's herbs than entertainment, it remained one of Ziamara's more favored places. The more public ones kept attracting Blacktide vassals--here at least the number was restricted to the Wolves or those that their lord liked enough to let this far in (or those who bribed the right Wolfe, to be sure).

Despite Gavin's night time activities, he was up at the crack of dawn since they were forced back to this blasted place. It was habit forming, but his routine was a lot less known to everyone. There was a fair bit of information gathering during the cloak of night as he donned disguises to act out his mummeries. Most of the people he talked to were not people that would readily know his face which was smeared with grime. A sell sword or adventurer interested in the gossip and rumors of the land.

Most in his household thought that he was just carousing instead of disappearing into the night and only his trusted covered for him. It was interesting how the people perceived them. Useless, tyrannical, beautiful, awe-inspiring, depending on what sort of interaction they might have been fortunate to have, or to some, only but misfortune.

When he arrived back into his quarters during the black of night, he rousted his household for a bath and fell into bed for a few hours. The lack of sleep should have exhausted him, but he seemed a bit different. Attentive, sly, but always quiet unless there was purpose or rather there was purpose.

The rest of the routine was that the squires under his care were to train with the others and several hours were spent in shouts and instruction before they all went back to wash off and break their fast.

It was about midday when he left his quarters once more where he was intercepted by one of the Wolfe girls. A gentle smile appeared as he allowed for some small talk which was easy enough because the girl just went on a constant stream and all he needed to do was ask a colorless question. She was to show him her favorite spot and he politely complied. It was a gift to appear attentive all the while tuning the chatter out until she gushed about Ziamara causing him to look up.

"Good afternoon, coz," he said with a smirk as the girl practically danced next to him that she was able to see the beautiful princess again and hoped that she would be just as fashionable and beautiful as her when she was older.

Ziamara smiled at the newcomers, though most of her warmth was reserved for Gavin. "Good day, love." She gestured to the spot next to her on the bench but glanced at Aicelina Wolfe. "Aicelina would you do me a tremendous favor? If you could partner one of the pages in the dance they're practicing? I did promise him I would but I fear my head's far too light to go spinning around just now."

The girl nodded, and Ziamara put a hand on her own chest, showing relief. "Thank you, Aicelina. Do come back after?"

Zee turned her attention to Gavin, not hiding the skeptical look as she studied his face. "You look tired. I do hope you're not seducing all the local ladies?"

"It's nothing to worry on," he said with a shrug knowing by mid-day he would be over the weariness of rising too early in the morning. He neither confirmed or denied his whereabouts and with whom figuring it would make for a good cover story if needed.

"How are you?" The attention and concern reflected back upon Ziamara as he drew closer to take a seat.
