Hey guys!

I've been pondering a good first story to dip my toes in here once Elegia gets that final approval. Rather than aimless introduction type threads, I like there to be a goal complete with conflict to keep things moving and interesting. I figure Maëlys and Eloise are probably good characters to begin with. So let me know what you think of this basic idea, and maybe we can forge it into something interesting.

So Elegia is a very skilled Pathomancer, which gives her usefulness outside of simple battle situations. I figure someone in Durant would have taken notice of that and may have some non-traditional assignments with that capability. I'm imagining House Durant needing to make some sort of delicate deal with someone at a high society party. Maybe they need Maëlys to broker that deal, and want Elegia along to help identify emotions of various key individuals and help subtly sway the deal in Maëlys' favor with a little emotional manipulation. Eloise can be there for protection, as that seems like an arrangement in place already. And Maybe there's some sort of technical aspect of this deal too, maybe a little investigation is required. Maybe a couple of PADs need to be swiped and have Eloise help crack them and dig up some dirt or important details.

There's a lot of places to go from there too. Maybe something shady is uncovered that leads us to adventures down the road.

Anyway, there's a basic framework. Intrigue and subterfuge in a high society party as three characters learn to work with each other. What do you think?

Thanks!

I would quite like that, maybe you could get assigned to La Belle Dame Sans Mercredi as a specialist or as an Errant? I'm open to anything as long as it doesn't conflict with Eloise's Core Directive - Protect House Durant

That would work, we are on the Belle Dame in our first major thread, We can do an intro thread where you come aboard and are interviewed by Maelys.
