(Still in the Fellowship Hall)

The man looks the elf in the eyes. "That is what I said and then he booted me out. He... the money... I don't know where all of this money came from but suddenly he had the wealth of kings to play with. When I asked, he laughed and put boot to bum and that sir is why I am hiding. So, tell me, IS HE GONE?"

"Well, the short answer is yes.  Do you have any idea what is going on with him?"

Versatillas had been all but invisible at the back of the group, he listens as the token gasps and fawning over sickening displays of wealth commence.  None of this is power, none of it is even practical or comfortable.  He doesn't like the rich.  All money and no sense.  They lack fundamental taste.  They eat things that the poor wouldn't in their most dire situation.  They sleep on gemstones as though it was comfortable.  What's the sense there?

His bitter musings aside, it is beautiful, even through his jaded viewpoint he does admit that much.  He smirks at the rapture that everyone else is feeling.  People are starving in the streets of Stormreach while we drool over such over embellishment.  He pays attention to each detail until it makes him sick and then moves back out to let someone else get a glimpse of "the high life".

(Hall of the Fellowship))

::Glances back and forth between Teldyn and the newcomer, Eeyoor. Emerald eyes still examining the portal behind the man, but frowning even deeper now. Aurelueithil doesn't so much as sheath her weapons as lays them at the ready, as she listens intently to the interchange between Teldyn and Eeyoor. Her eyes harden a little as the word 'Slavery" comes up, trying to make sense of its utterance.

She retreats back a bit, to another wall, though by now she is uncertain as to which wall should be trusted. "Being a fair 'babe' to the Fellowship, I was unaware of said passage between here and the Tavern, but, should there not be a bell or chime to warn those that know of it.. " Frowns as she lets the more, suspicious portions of her mind a bit of sway in her thoughts.::

Deriaz stares at the coin on the ground before glancing back to Points. He opens his mouth to say something, but hesitates. For a moment, he considers biting back the question, not wanting to seem too ignorant of airships and their workings in front of the others. But his curiosity gets the better of him.

"What's that for? This is all seeming rather un-needed. . . You have a nice room back there, and now this barrier? Why the need for such a fancy ship, if a simpler ship would have sufficed? I know you said you obtained it, but. . ."

He trails off, shutting his mouth. The warforged glances around at the others, mumbles an apology, and stays quiet.

*Xandius chuckles lightly while partaking of some food*

 

“Oheehee, this Lady Draggy you speak of reminds me of Eopia.  I call her Caterpillar.  Now I know strong emotion when I see it, and you seem to be quite smitten with this lady.  I have some wisdom with regards to the fairer sex.  If you need advice, it is fortunate indeed that we have met.  Have you begun to court her?  Or should I ask first if she is aware of your intentions, yes?”

 

*Xandius dunks some bread in the soup and takes a hearty bite.  He chews slowly, giving the ships cook a smile and gesture of approval.  Xandius notes the tension in the cook and becomes concerned that she is having second thoughts about letting the elf not become part of some culinary masterpiece.  Xandius mentally prepares himself, should the need to prevent the elf from becoming the next meal, arises.*

(I apologize that my absence has caused this thread to languish. I have been dealing with some issues outside of the guild and finally got my old job back. I should be able to be more involved now so back to the story…)

 

In the Fellowship Hall…

 

The man looks at Teldyn and Aurelueithil. “I know that there are strange forces at work in his life and I want no further to do with them. Now that he is gone again, I will break my bond and leave to make my fortune, my way... and the devils take all elves.” He realizes too late to whom he is speaking. “Present company excluded of course.”

 

Back aboard ship…

 

Points waits until all are gathered again and motions people into the doorway. “Through this doorway are some of your quarters. Vali, Tyrael and I are in the first room on the left.  Please come to me if you have any problems. Also respect everyone’s privacy...” An annoyed expression crosses his face. “Showing up unannounced in someone’s room is likely to get you stabbed. Take the Stairway up, please. First landing…”

 

As people go up the spiral staircase they can notice the nicely inlaid and delicate woodwork. This stairway is wide enough for two people to walk side by side and still pass a third. It appears to be the main up/down passageway and the padded steps although not carpeted do give a little with each step. Comfort, spaciousness and beauty were obviously main design points when building this ship. If someone were to scrape the woodwork with a scabbard they might note that the wood doesn’t show any scratch.

 

At the first landing, the stairway continues upward but the landing opens on to a large room. Tables are set at comfortable distances and covered with clean white tablecloths. In the center of each table sits a centerpiece decoration depicting creatures of renown, including dragons, giants, beholders and so forth. Each table bears a different centerpiece and each is magnificent in every detail. They are also moving. Some travel in small circles, others fly in place and slowly rotate.

 

Further into the room another shape can be seen inscribed in the wood floor.  It is a Greater Dragonmark. Those familiar with the marks would recognize it right away. It sits before a finely lit and appointed stage. There are provisions for spotlighting and other effects. Movable partitions block the area backstage from view. Velvet curtains drape the stage sides and a few room-wide half steps lead to the performer’s platform.

 

Points finally arrives up the staircase and enters the room. “This is the dining room and stage.  We have some volunteers who will be entertaining us during and after our evening meals. When you need something to eat or a glass filled, simply talk into the centerpiece. It will let you know that it heard you and someone will bring it to your table.”

 

Looking about at his friends, “I hope that we will have some entertaining times in this room. If any of you are hungry you can stop here now. We will head upstairs to the tavern and be back to pick you up on our way below. For the rest of you, upstairs and let me buy you a drink.” His smile is precisely a smidgen shy of being too large but it makes you uncomfortable all the same.

Valianna plays with Tyrael and his new puppets until the group comes down from the Royal Deck, then scoops him and the toys into her arms and follows.  A frown knits her brows at her husband's comments and she makes a mental note to speak to him about unexpected guests later, presuming that something must have occurred that irritated him.

As they enter the main dining room behind Points, she sidesteps the nearby table with a dragon centrepiece as her son reaches out for it.  "Not to play with, sweeting.  I know you like them, but they're not toys."

Ty sticks out a quivering lip and gives his mother a pleading expression.  "No play wiv dragon?"  Vali shakes her head, and he pouts for a moment before continuing hopefully.  "Bekfass?"

Vali rolls her eyes playfully at him with an exaggerated sigh.  "Fine, let's go and find Cook, shall we?"  Turning to Points, she wonders at his odd expression for a moment before shrugging it off.  "Ty's hungry, love... we're going to the kitchen.  And we should talk later, when you're done showing people around."  Her arms are too full of toys and toddlers to manage a hug, so she just plants a quick kiss on his cheek.

Points turns his head quickly and catches her lips. He gives her a playful pat on the bum and watches her as she heads back down the stairs to the hallway that separates the rows of guest cabins.  Stopping at their own room briefly, she deposits the puppets on the bed for Ty to play with later, then glances around the room before stepping out and making sure the door is locked behind her.

"To the kitchen!" she declares, putting Tyrael down and letting him run aft.  She keeps a close eye on him as they cross the main deck, making sure he doesn't stray too close to the railings or lose another rabbit as she runs after him and shepherds him in the right direction.  As they enter the kitchen, Vali offers the cook a bright smile, which fades slightly upon seeing the two figures seated at the table.

"Oh... Primus?  I didn't expect to see you here.  Um... welcome?"  She gives the cook a quizzical glance, as if to ask where the elf had come from, before turning to the other occupant of the table.  "And, er... forgive me..."  She tries desperately to think of the man's name.  "Xander, was it?  Welcome aboard the Thastolia..."

Bemused, she stands there uncertainly and wonders if Points is aware these two are aboard.  Tyrael has no such concerns as he trots across to the cook and beams up at her, tugging on her apron.  "Bekfass for Ty?" he asks hopefully.

Teldyn looks over the bemused ex-servant quizzically.

"Sir, perhaps you could share a bit?  I seem to be at a lack for information in this particular matter, and Points..., did not seem to be himself when I spoke to him briefly.  What do you mean by there are forces at work?  What is it that he has done to cause you so much pain and stress?"

Despite the hallway's large width, Deriaz still remained at the back of the group and walking slightly sideways -- realizing he was easily about as wide as two people, he was attempting to minimize his size as much as he could. He took his steps carefully as well, unaware of the unscratched wood.

The warforged stared in curiosity at the tables, his mind racing with questions. Why's the dining room fancy too? Why are the tables spinning? Wouldn't that make tables hard to eat on? Or are these tables not for eating on, but for show? Does that still make them tables? What's with the squiggles drawn on the floor? Why the stage? Do the performers get a fancy room too? Do--

"Tavern?" he finally said out loud, snapping his attention back to the conversation. "The ship has a tavern? . . ." He paused, trying to imagine the size of the Phoenix inside the ship. But given the rest of what he'd seen on the ship, his mind began trying to establish a 'fancy' Phoenix in his imagination.

Another question sat in his mouth, ready to be asked, but the warforged pulled it back -- he had been asking enough questions about the ship and air travel, he felt, that he was probably becoming a nuisance. Not that he could help it however, as it was his first time on a flying ship.

Instead, Deriaz simply stayed silent and gazed around the room, ready to depart to the tavern whenever the rest of the group was prepared to do so.
