Zephyr and I had an awesome vacation away from Shadowfane!

I got to flex my RP muscle in a different direction with an NPC shift as Abhorrent-tainted Joval.  I don't think anyone out there doesn't know that about Joval, so I can share that much, even if I shouldn't talk about the specifics of the encounter (much as I'm bursting with glee to do so).  However, if one of the PCs had had the power to kill by gaze I think he'd have committed regicide.  That alone was totally worth the price of admission and not PCing at all Friday night.  :-)

As is typical of most revels I didn't get invested in the political plots and almost none of the plots and regular venues I'm personally pursuing were there because of the IG location.  This was just fine with me.  I got to spend a lot of time making music and just talking to people.  It was kind of like the early good old days for Zephyr before every event turned into constantly being pulled in multiple directions all the time.  I actually had time for exchanging information, talking philosophy, catching up with other characters' lives and being the social creature that makes Zephyr what he really is.

There were the prerequisite field fights that invariably happen in front of Roskin Hall.  Those became logistical challenges due to the mud.  Many fine spell packets were only thrown once because there was no way I'd throw them at my worst enemy after they came to their places in the mud and water.  There was actually one fight that packets were in such shortage that I'd wait until my targets were standing in snow or on ice to throw at them so I could recover and reuse the packets.  I felt really, really bad when an NPC was charging at me and the only thing I had to save my ass was a slam by wind because he was charging at me across nothing but mud.  Either he was going down or I was and that really wasn't a contest.  Like I said, I felt bad for losing that packet to the mud... oh, and for the poor NPC.  ;-)

I went on one mod, if only because someone asked me specifically to go.  I didn't actually feel the need to get up and volunteer for mods.  I was quite content with low fight weekend.

The gathering of the monarchs was entertaining on many fronts and the troubadours got to perform.  A huge RP encounter ending in song.  How much better does it get?  :-)

NPC of the event for me was definitely Griff.  I had quality time with him in multiple roles.  His Rhomurgian scholar was absolutely adorable in his demeanor.  i hope we get to see him some more now that I can keep my promise to get a certain organization off his back.  The cross world virtual dinner with Jade Moth was nothing shy of fantastic; a great way to further a plot line in a low key way with minimal physical effort.

Halia and Terra's song was so amusing.  I'm glad they let me participate in some small fashion.  The look on Grum's face was priceless.  :-)  In fact, I would say that the time with Halia, Terra and Aralyn was probably the PC highlights of my event.  I love my fellow PCs.

That's the quick highlights.  Happy Monday all.  Have a great week.

Sounds like great fun! I'm sorry I missed it!

I'm not sorry you missed it. I suspect if there had been a Vaedra there would have been a dead Joval. ;-)

But as Zephyr I'm sorry you missed it. I really enjoyed being with the team.

I'm sure that Vaedra would never condone swift, pragmatic, violent solutions to complicated and messy problems, especially when sentiment is getting in the way of effectiveness.

...Or at least, not publicly.

Joval was the safest person in that room, I think. Everyone else... not so much.

I got to hear the troubadours sing! Even Zephyr! Without them being on the other side of a doorway in the weather while I'm in the middle of a conversation!

Well, I hope it was worth the wait. I know I was more than a bit nervous about that particular performance.

Thank goodness you got to so many people as Tabritha. I wish I'd been one of them. I really want to spend some quality time with her at some point. The latest version of the story she's putting out tells me I really need to pay attention to it.

I'd rather it happened more often, but that's been hard to line up.

The plan is to pull in everyone who doesn't flee screaming. (I have a few guesses on people who might, but we shall see.) I think I spoke directly with about a third of the players at this event -- need to actually make that list, as at some point I'll need to actively find the folks I've missed rather than address whomever's handy and not in the middle of something. Eventually I'll find Zephyr. :)

I bet that *is* a different experience for you! I hadn't even thought of that!

'Tis! I am terribly deprived of PC singing. <plots and schemes to get more>

Thank you again for doing that NPC shift! You were awesome as always!

Well thank you. It's always a pleasure to "work" with you. I just wish you'd all get over the idea that you're costing me by asking me do that kind of stuff. It is just as much fun as PCing, just rewarding in a different way. >:-}

I just feel bad making you de-blue!

Look at it this way, while I'm not blue you aren't out there doing horrible things to Zephyr. It is its own reward. ;-)

Wow, thanks! That really means a lot to me.

I'm glad you enjoyed the scholar, he is a very different sort of character for me to be playing so was more than a bit out of my comfort zone to portray. The dinner scene was fun as it went rather differently than we had anticipated it going. It is one of those things that gives me the most joy in running plots at Madrigal. Our players catch nuances and undertones that we never anticipate coming to the fore and take our plot-lines in the most unexpected directions. I'm often as surprised as the PCs at where things end up by the time it all gets figured out. Thanks for the kind words, and even more thanks for making my time out there as an NPC so much fun.

You're quite welcome. I don't give out false praise, so it is really heartfelt. And the "Doh!" moment I got with FireEye as followup from the meeting with Jozef was fun too. "Did you give him a writ to allow him to continue his research?" "Uh, I can do that?" *sigh* Someday Zephyr will get the hang of this Inquisition stuff.

The look on Fire-Eye's face when you asked if you could actually give out such a writ was pretty priceless.

I've made an executive decision. Since it's clearly not intuitive what I can and can't do and I get in all kinds of trouble when I do what I shouldn't and don't do what I should, I'm just going to throw caution to the wind (nice thought, that), do whatever the Hell I want and take what comes. Look out world! Inquisitor Zephyr is blowing through!

<3 I am so glad we got to spend more time together this event than we normally do. I'm going to miss PCing with you terribly.

Would you come back if I promised not to PC quite so terribly? ;-)

Seriously though, my time with Terra, Halia and Aralyn was the best part of my event. I too will miss you. :-(

I had so much fun RPing with you this weekend. ALL THE SINGING! You get many bonus points for having "Festive Welcome" ready. I had forgotten that I sent that to you and now will be purchasing my copy. Thanks for the reminder. Normal events are tough for troubadour rehearsing, but this event was such a perfect time to catch up and practice.

Thanks for everything. You, Hope and Mary really made my event!
