Legends ofAmarna

Warning! The anathema is here.

The doctrine that poisoned the souls of many, that wrought blood against blood, life against life. Aspasia has not been the same, nor will it ever be. As history fades into legend, and legend into myth, so too are the whispers of peace that had once brought each of the races together in harmony. As such a time faded into history, so does the chaos grow - the resentment that breeds loathing - that brings about war.

With the world pitted against each other, each race, equines, canines, and felines taking sides, the question is, which side will you choose?

Lilith


Sighing she adjusted her mask and looked at her reflection with a frown. A gala was supposed to be fancy, but she was just wearing her normal outfit with the mask and a few well-placed jewels. She had never worn a dress, and she was not about to start now for some fancy party. Sighing she knew her mother would be shocked to see her daughter dress in such a way at a party...or the elven woman would not be that surprised since Lilith had not exactly been the most ladylike princess around. Princess, the word made her sneer in disgust, and she hated that it was technically her proper title. Here, in this new world? She wasn't important or related to any royalty and she could be a pirate like she loved to be.

That thought alone brought back her smile and relieved some of the nervous energy she had been feeling. It was going to be okay, she would join this party and find out the information she wanted and needed. She had formed some ideas and plans, but she needed to know more about this world first, and what better way to gain knowledge but to go to this fancy dance? That and maybe a few shiny baubles would make it into her pack...it just depended on what she felt like once things really got rolling. Squaring herself up she moved and went to see what she could and learn what she could as everyone danced.

Drink up me hearties! Yo ho ho!

Galas, balls, dances, they really weren't her sort of thing. She never found the socialization on a grand old fancy level very entertaining. Rather she was here for one thing. The booze. Well, that and adventure. She hadn't been this far north yet, and she had heard of a new ruler in the equine lands. She really didn't care to meet the new ruler though, nope, just the rowdiness and the celebrations that came with it. Plus during such fancy gatherings, wealth abounded, and that... was always good for her pocket.

Giving a faint chuckle, she bent down and adjusted the way her trousers sat on her legs. Her dark hands contrasted starkly with the bright red and green print fabric, and her loose yellow crop top was a stark contrast to that. She loved bright colors, and if she had to dress up she ought to at least dress in colors that suited her fancy. No dresses for her.

Entering the citadel she followed the directions towards the main ballroom. She stood out starkly in the crowd with her lack of a dress, her eye clashing colors, and the masses of colorful jewelry, hoop earrings, and a nose piercing. Though she stood out, she did not care in the least, and made her way forward with a flamboyantly boyish walk.

Finally as she reached the crowded room, she searched around eagerly and noticed the refreshments table. Ah yes, that's what she needed. Sauntering over, she took the largest glass she could find and filled it with some wine. It looked like it would be wine or boozy punch. She went for the wine. It would take a lot, but it was stronger than the other stuff at least. Looking around again, her eyes caught someone that looked almost equally out of place as she.

Moving towards her, swaying her hips with the motion of her walk, she noticed that the woman looked a fair bit younger than herself. Blond hair, and bright red eyes. She too was wearing trousers and a shirt. "Aye, just here for the festivities, or are you like me, and just here for somethin' to drink?"  Giving a laugh, she stuck out a hand in an awkward sort of handshake, wondering if the other would take her strange introduction. "Name's Zamaille, by the way, but you can call me Zama if that's too much of a mouthful." Giving a crooked grin, she took a large gulp of her wine, waiting for the other to respond.

Lilith


Lilith looked to a voice and blinked before smiling "I doubt the drink here is any good" at least it would not be like anything she had tried before, being of a different world. Still, a part of her didn't want to try, thinking if it was better she would miss it if she ever got back home. Looking to the offered hand she shook it "Lilith Fairbreeze" she said in an introduction of herself. "It is a fine night to meet Zamaille" or so far it was a fine night, and she looked over the crowd again "It's so...much splendor." It almost made her uneasy, thinking that someone like her should be used to such a party.

Despite her title, she had always hated this kind of party. Tonight she had come to gather information, and nothing else. Looking over Zama again she frowned as she noticed the clothing more this time. "You're another pirate" she said almost bluntly, and her red eyes went to meet the other females gaze. "You're the second I have met of our profession, what can you tell me of the ports and travel for these lands?" it seemed like more than luck to meet someone who would have the right information tonight.

Zamaille


Zamaille Atha'an
Not all treasure is silver and gold
Drink up me hearties! Yo ho ho!

Winking at the other woman, Zamaille gave a rowdy laugh, causing a couple of the nearby dancers to pause and look her way before returning to their movements, lithe and graceful as ever. Zamaille wished she could say the same as herself, but solid ground with sea legs always left her a bit awkward. Not that she fully lacked grace, more that she was most comfortable at sea with the rocking of the boats that made some landlubbers with weak stomachs ill.

"Aye, but it is not always the taste, but rather what it does that I'm after. Life is much more laughable after a bottle. It's wind in my sails, and an ocean to my soul."

Giving a faint nod of her head Zamaille grinned and gave a slight bob of her head. "Lilith, it's a pleasure to meet you." Following the other's gaze, she too looked over the crowd. Noticing the fine dresses and ornamentation of the fine hall. It would be a shame leaving with only a belly full of wine. Yes, she would have to see if she could "borrow" a few of those pretty bobbles the ladies and gents were wearing for herself.

"It really is, but that's the fun in it. What's a night without some wine and a couple new trinkets to take home or sell for gold? But of course, don't tell anyone I said that. We can't have 'em thinking I'm a thief now, can we?" Laughing again, this time more quietly, she brought herself back to reality at the other's questions. She felt it was obvious that she was a pirate, but some were still ignorant, and oftentimes she received disgusted or suspicious stares from people.

"Aye, I suppose you could say that, though I grew up as a windfinder on my clan's ship. We did piratey things though, so I suspect I am one, even if that wasn't my official title." Meeting the other's red gaze she gave a sad smile. "I do not know too much of these land yet... my ship was stolen, and the one I found myself on crashed against the rocks and shredded to pieces. What is a windfinder without her ship? Without her crew? I have discovered a little though, and I know your best bet for work would likely be Tabar Domain. I have not been there yet... but I have heard they have a reputation for... shall we say... more of the shadier deals? I hear tell of smuggling that goes on there if that is your kind of things, and perhaps you'll even be able to find a crew. I plan on heading there myself once these shenanigans are over... it's just a matter of finding enough gold and the right crew... can't have anyone that will stab you in the back and steal your ship can you? Anyways, there's other ports too. From the maps I've seen rivers connect most of the main cities and towns. It makes for a good trade for those wanting to do more honest work."

Lilith


Lilith wasn't talking about taste either, well maybe partly. When it came to booze she looked for taste and strength, and she rarely got drunk. Grinning at the mention of taking trinkets home, she gave a friendly enough nod in agreement. Then the talk turned to ships and ports, which made her frown a little "I have been to Tabar Domain...I did not notice a port there" she had met an egotistical horse though. The thought still made her a little angry. Lilith wanted to ask what a windfinder was, but decided not too, thinking it might turn into a complicated story. 

Sighing she crossed her arms "Aye, finding a crew would be hard, but there is always some danger to being around strangers." she gestured to the party "Like this, the like of us could take advantage of these rich folk who believe themselves above harm and loss." she looked to Zama at the mention of rivers and trading between cities and towns "Aye? That might be something I consider. Though a boat is not as nice as a ship...it would still be sailing." Looking forward again she found herself looking for the food and drink that might be available as she wondered if river travel would be worth it.

Zamaille


Zamaille Atha'an
Not all treasure is silver and gold
Drink up me hearties! Yo ho ho!

As the other's words met her ears, Zamaille nodded her head. "Aye, mayhaps it's just a rumor then. It's a strange land with strange beasts, and it's quite a curious thing how things work so differently in different places. Can you tell me any more about it? I've heard it's in the desert, and that it has a port, that is about all that I know. Quite an odd combination though, don't ya think?" Giving a laugh before sipping her wine again, she cocked her head slightly while listening to Lilith.

"It's so true, especially in our profession. Stealing things and smuggling things don't always attract the most honest types. Though I can't say they're much better." Motioning her hands in the direction of the rich, she thought of all the crimes they committed and frequently got away with because they had money. It made her stomach turn and her blood boil. Perhaps one day she would find a way to get justice. At least some for the poor. Though truly she was most concerned for herself.

"Aye, sailing is sailing. Though I agree. There's nothin' like a salty breeze, and endless ocean all around, with waves to put you to sleep. Don't know how these landlubbers handle it." Finishing her glass of wine, she set the empty cup down, and turned towards the other. "How about a bit of fun while we're here. Want to see if we can get something off of one of these rich folk without getting caught. Nothing like making the night more memorable than trying to cause some trouble." Winking, she wondered if the alcohol was affecting her yet. She drank often, so it shouldn't be, so perhaps the festivities were enhancing her mood and putting her in a mind to cause mischief.

Lilith


Lilith raised a brow as Zamaille talked. Perhaps she would go back to that domain and investigate more. After all, she had not exactly seen the whole area and there could be a hidden port there. Looking around the room, she nodded "Aye, let's see what we can get away with" she grinned and moved into the ground, weaving almost gracefully through the people. Finding the food she took a little bit and then ate it with an almost bored expression as she tucked some jewelry into her pocket. Too easy...and she didn't even know where she could sell it off for some money. 

Red orbs scanned the area again and tried to find Zamaille again just to see if the other pirate was having better luck. Then she picked up a drink and took a sip, making a face at the taste "Ugh, they don't know how to brew...." shaking her head she knew she wouldn't waste the drink and would have to just eat something to cover the taste up. As she stood there she watched the crowd again and wondered what the point had been for this party. It seemed like it was simply for showing off something, but as to what she wasn't completely sure despite having been to such a party before.
