[Chat]  Tyrrell- grunts.
[Chat]  Lorshenar smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Selria giggles and claps her hands excitedly.

[Chat]  Shakir Secur shouts to Grapirrr, "Happy Life Day Grapirrr!"
[Chat]  "One of my favorite Life Day traditions is storytelling.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Raen'a smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "Wookiees love to gather together to share stories, fables, and legends, especially at Life Day.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "I would like to share some of my favorite Life Day tales with you.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr smiles at the audience and opens a huge, ancient-looking Life Day storybook.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "The first story I have for you is called "Gift of the Wookiee"." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Nice, stories.", Hannah Moonwood mumbles.  "So.. where's tha free booze?"
[Chat]  (happy) Raen'a picks up her glass and takes a sip, gazing up at the Wookie on the stage.

[Chat]  Amul'ette says quietly, "Karen, would you tell me later what Grapirrr's story is?  I cannot understand him."
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a young Wookiee couple." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Karen' Starwalker smiles at Amul'ette.

[Chat] Karen' Starwalker says, "Sure"
[Chat]  Amul'ette says, rather quietly, "Thank you Karen."
[Chat]  Karen' Starwalker nods at Amul'ette.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "These Wookiees were refugees, having left Kashyyyk with little more then their fur, a few credits, and Wrrlchiir's ancestral bowcaster." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Oh, storytelling.", Bofnaf Kit says.  "Splendid!"
[Chat]  (courtly) Aonin Halephax pays close attention to the Wookiee on stage.
[Chat]  Hannah Moonwood wraps her arms across her chest, just listening.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Like most refugees, the young couple did not have much." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Selria notes the mumble and frowns turning her attention to the stage.
[Chat]  (quiet) Amul'ette looks slightly embarrassed.

[Chat]  "They lived in a small Corellian house, which was on the ground, not safely tucked into a Wroshyr like they were used to.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "But, they were happy to be free and together.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Bofnaf Kit says, "Kashyykian history, quite interesting, actually."
[Chat]  Raen'a nods at Bofnaf Kit.

[Chat]  Shakir Secur sits back and listens to the story.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "The Life Day season arrived.  Each Wookiee was saddened, knowing Life Day away from home and family would be sparse at best." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Neither had credits to purchase even a small gift for the other." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Jiorral was out shopping one day, when an idea struck her." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (happy) Nallu Koras grins while listening to this story.

[Chat]  "Like most female Wookiees, she had a long, beautiful mane of head fur.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (calm) Crescendo listens to the story with a smile.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Many hairless species were willing to pay good credits for fur or hair that could be made into wigs!" in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Aonin Halephax chuckles politely at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "Certainly she could trim her long head fur to brighten Life Day for her beloved mate.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "So, she gladly snipped a few inches of her head fur and sold them to an overjoyed balding human.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Selria peers over at Grapirr and smirks.
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre moves a bit to allow Lu to stand near her.
[Chat]  (happy) Nallu Koras grins at Breshe.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "The credit chip would be more than enough to buy a present for Wrrlchiir and she would even have enough left over to buy a mouf rump to roast." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Xija Oro snickers slightly as she listens to the story.
[Chat]  Maeja Rajani mutters several zabraki curses of varying unpleasant degrees, while fumbling around her belt as if looking for something.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Jiorral spent all day browsing the bazaar, trying to find just the right gift." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Finally, she found it:  a beautiful Wroshyr-wood display case." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Wrrlchiir could display the treasured bowcaster, and every time he saw it, he would be reminded both of Kashyyyk and the love of his mate.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Crescendo smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Somehow, she managed to tuck the display case into her backpack and headed home to the small Corellian house." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Raen'a smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Nervously, she groomed her remaining head fur, hoping and praying to the Forest that Wrrlchiir would still find her as lovely as always." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Finally, he arrived home and she rushed to greet him.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Selria listens a smile warming her small slender face.

[Chat]  "He gasped at the sight of her, looking stunned.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Worriedly, she fussed with her head fur." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (courtly) Aonin Halephax blinks, quirking a brow.

[Chat]  ""Don't worry, it will grow back quickly!", she assured him.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  ""I sold it. I couldn't stand to have Life Day go by without finding a way to do something special for you.", she said.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Wrrlchiir gave her a huge, reassuring Wookiee hug.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  ""You are the most beautiful Wookiee I have ever seen. I have a gift for you.""
[Chat]  (quiet) Amul'ette furrows her eyebrow, watching Grapirrr.
[Chat]  (happy) Nallu Koras hisses, "awwww"

[Chat]  "With that, he gave her the combs.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "A beautiful set of imported Kashyyykian combs that would be perfect with her head fur...  Once it grew back." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre smiles and agrees with Lu. She always loved hearing this story.

[Chat]  "She covered his furry face with kisses, already looking forward to the day her fur was its normal length again.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Alorana Nux smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "Then realizing Wrrlchiir had not yet seen his gift, Jiorral happily presented him with the display case.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Hannah Moonwood rubs her face at the notion of wookiee kisses.

[Chat]  ""For your bowcaster! Get it out and let's see how it looks. And then I will roast a mouf rump for our Life Day feast."", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Wrrlchiir gave Jiorral another big Wookiee hug." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, ""Let's just enjoy our mouf.  You see, I sold the bowcaster to buy the combs.  We'll put the combs in the display case until your fur grows back and I craft a new bowcaster.  They are both so nice and they will remind us of how wonderful this Life Day is." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "So, the young Wookiee couple sat down to the mouf dinner, happy to be together, happy to be free, and happy it was Life Day.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Raen'a grins at Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Shakir Secur chuckles politely at Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Grapirrr bows.
[Chat]  Tekbarr Orro claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre awwws herself this time.

[Chat]  Liniani cheers for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre gives you an ovation. Good job!
[Chat]  Amberel cheers for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Raen'a claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Bravo! Bravo! You give Grapirrr an ovation.
[Chat]  Al'Yssa Senoj claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Alorana Nux claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Selria smiles at Grapirr and claps her hands together for him.

[Chat]  Lorshenar claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "...", Allyna' Braska says.
[Chat]  (courtly) Aonin Halephax blinks, brushing a slight... piece of dust from under his eye, clearing his throat quietly.

[Chat]  Shakir Secur claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Xija Oro claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Wyrrlicci cheers for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Jeevik claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Selria claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Nar'yk Storm claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Wyrrlicci claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Grapirrr roars happily.
[Chat]  (quiet) Amul'ette smiles, then claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Aonin Halephax claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Ronin'Jekknai' Medjai smiles and claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Kayet Logan looks toward the stage.
[Chat]  Tyrrell- claps his hands together.

[Chat]  Jatsin Darkcrest says, "wonderful story, from what I made out"
[Chat]  Grapirrr turns to another page in his book.

[Chat]  "Always loved that story.", Karen' Starwalker says.
[Chat]  "Very nice story", Raen'a says happily.
[Chat]  Raen'a smiles at Grapirrr.




[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Next is a folk tale that was written by a very good friend of mine, Moya'.  It's the story of Father Wroshyr." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Story would have been better with a Rancor in it.", Allyna' Braska mumbles.
[Chat]  Tyrrell- chuckles politely at Allyna' Braska.

[Chat]  "Then it would be a horror story, not a love story", Tyrrell- mumbles in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Liniani says, "Beautiful story, yes."
[Chat]  Selria looks back up to the stage with a smile.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Long ago, when our planet was young, things were much different than they are today." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "The Wroshyr trees were much smaller...", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  "Barely taller then the height of 10 Wookiees."
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "The Wookiees, too, were much different." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Father Wroshyr...  Never heard this story", Shakir Secur quotes.
[Chat]  "They were a primitive people struggling to survive on the forest floor.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "At this time, our ancestors communicated only with gestures and used only the most basic of tools." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "They found themselves in the position of prey as often as in the position of hunter." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "One day a wise Wroshyr tree spotted a young Wookiee with a special affinity for life in the forest.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "We know this tree as "Father Wroshyr", for he is the oldest and wisest tree on our homeworld.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (quiet) Selria grows quiet her eyes attending to the stage with a small smile.

[Chat]  "Father Wroshyr spoke to the young Wookiee and was happy to find that the Wookiee understood his words", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Soon, the Wookiee learned the language of the Forest and began to teach it to his fellow Wookiees." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "With the gift of language, our ancestors found ways to organize themselves into villages, improving their chances for survival." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Village life also allowed our people to develop a sophisticated culture.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (happy) Nallu Koras hisses to Breshe, "I'd like to meet Father Wroshyr, if he is even real"
[Chat]  "Father Wroshyr taught the Wookiees to make complex tools and instructed them in the cultivation of Wroshyrs.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Crescendo smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "You see, Wroshyr trees grow very quickly.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Raen'a smiles at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre giggles and looks way up over her shoulder to nod. "I wish my people had such good stories."

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "With many new branches coming in each year, they crowd each other and restrict the tree's upward growth." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Nar'yk Storm smiles at Alorana and wraps an arm around her waist.
[Chat]  Xija Oro glances over to Naryk and Alorana as she listens to the story, smiling faintly.

[Chat]  "Father Wroshyr taught the Wookiees to thin out the branches so that the trees could grow taller and taller.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Those branches that remained grew larger and stronger." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Our great Tree Father gave our ancestors the knowledge of how to manipulate the growth of the branches.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Soon, they were able to coax the branches to grow together, forming the great platforms on which our villages and cities were built.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (quiet) Selria leans back slightly in her seat a wee bit of shyness displaying on her usually mischevious face.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Century after century this relationship between Wookiee and Wroshyr has continued unbroken." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "With the guidance of Father Wroshyr the Wookiees developed our great civilization in harmony with the ways of the Forest.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "With the help of the Wookiees, the Wroshyrs have been able to reach for the sky and recognize their full potential.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Now you know the origin of this partnership between the Wookiees and our Wroshyr brothers.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "We owe so much to these mighty trees.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Without their help, we would still be cowering in the shadows of the forest floor hiding from the predators.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Karen' Starwalker nods at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "This is why each Wookiee should heed the words of our Tree Carers and observe our sacred duty to protect the Forest.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr looks around and smiles.
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre applauds Breshe Hou'Kre.
[Chat]  Tekbarr Orro claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Raen'a claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Liniani cheers for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Grapirrr roars happily!

[Chat]  Jeevik claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Lorshenar claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Shakir Secur claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Al'Yssa Senoj claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Rhen' says, "Woo."
[Chat]  Amul'ette claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Bofnaf Kit cheers for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Alorana Nux claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Xija Oro claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Kayet Logan claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  YAY!! You cheer for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Jatsin Darkcrest claps for Grapirrr.
[Chat]  You clap for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Tyrrell- claps his hands together.
[Chat]  Grapirrr flips to a page near the end of his book.

[Chat]  Karen' Starwalker claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "Splendid!  Quite the tale of Kashyykian History,", Bofnaf Kit says.

Mayor Aonin socialized with Selria.


[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "There is one last story I would like to share with you." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Amul'ette says, rather quietly, "Sounds like it was a good story.  I cannot wait to hear the interpretation later."
[Chat]  Aonin Halephax claps for Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "It is a favorite with generation after generation of young Kashyyykians and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the years." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "The cultures of the Galaxy are quite diverse and fascinating.", Raen'a says, marked by happiness.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Once upon a time, there was a village nestled snugly in a huge Wroshyr." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "This village, like most Tree villages, kept a stable full of Kashyyyk banthas.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "But in this particular stable, there was one bantha who was quite different.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "I prefered Bolotaurs...", Tyrrell- mumbles in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Rrrudoolf was a very small bantha who, instead of having a shiny brown coat, had a bright green coat that was the color of Wroshyr leaves." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Oh, and one other thing...", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "He could fly.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Bofnaf Kit says, "Quite honestly, despite how I'm not entirely fond of most unhumanoid and furred races, learning and taking in the remarkable backgrounds is one thing I wont give up loving."
[Chat]  Shakir Secur gasps at Grapirrr.
[Chat]  "Being green is one thing.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  "But flying?"
[Chat]  Jeevik blinks in disbelief at Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Raen'a giggles at Grapirrr.
[Chat]  Tekbarr Orro chuckles politely at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  (calm) Crescendo smiles and listens to the story as it unfolds. She looks fascinated.

[Chat]  Aonin Halephax gapes at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "That was another matter entirely." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Some said the Forest had blessed him.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Others thought he had mutated in the incubator.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "The Wookiees were very kind to him, and he never ran short of yummy fodder, bantha treats, Wookiee hugs, and furry hands eager to groom him.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (courtly) Aonin Halephax chuckles softly.
[Chat]  (happy) Raen'a tries to imagine a flying bantha and shakes her head, giggling more.

[Chat]  "Rrrudoolf got plenty of attention, but the visitors came and left.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "The other banthas did not want to include Rrrudoolf in their bantha games...", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  "He was just too different."
[Chat]  (quiet) Selria giggles slightly covering her mouth with her slender pale pink hand.

[Chat]  "The Wookiees loved him, but needed banthas that worked well with other banthas on the hunt.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Traders wanted big banthas that could carry heavy loads." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Rrrudoolf grew lonely.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Then one Life Day, while Rrrudoolf contented himself with munching on the special holiday treats the Wookiees had brought him and playing with his squeaky mouf toy, the door to the stable suddenly burst open." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Rrrudoolf gasped when he saw who had entered.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  "It was someone entirely unexpected."
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Someone who looked like...  A walking tree?" in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Shakir Secur stretches a bit, leaning forward as she is drawn into the story.

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, ""Father Wroshyr?" gasped Rrrudoolf in amazement." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "The giant tree roared in delight.  "That's me!" he said. "And you are just the bantha I've been hoping to find!"" in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Liniani blinks in disbelief at Grapirrr.

[Chat]  "Father Wroshyr went on to explain his predicament.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  "He had included several young can-cells in his team this year."
[Chat]  "When flying over the Well of the Dead, they had been spooked by the howls of katarn below, and Life Day gifts had gone tumbling into the Shadowed Lands.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Xija Oro tilts her head to the side slightly, trying to picture a walking talking tree.
[Chat]  (happy) Raen'a blinks, now imagining a walking and talking tree.
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre can only imagine being visited by Father Wroshyr.

[Chat]  "I haven't heard this story in many decades..", Tyrrell- mumbles in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "The can-cells had tried to swoop down and collect the lost packs, but the buzzing of their wings only attracted more of the vicious creatures." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (courtly) Aonin Halephax chuckles softly, shaking his head with a brief grin.

[Chat]  "Father Wroshyr shook his great leafy head, thinking about all the toys, gifts, and Wookiee cookies that would end up being gnawed on by katarn.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Tyrrell- shrugs.

[Chat]  "Now, Rrrudoolf had an idea where this was going, and he was nervous.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.  "Venturing into the Well of the Dead is no small task."
[Chat]  Bofnaf Kit whispers, "Well, the odd beings in this story..well..."
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "It is the most dangerous area on all of Kashyyyk, and just about all of Kashyyyk is pretty dangerous." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (happy) Raen'a frowns, listening as she pops a candy in her mouth, chewing slowly.

[Chat]  "But when Father Wroshyr asked for help, how could he say no?", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "So, when Father Wroshyr asked Rrrudoolf to fly down to the Well of the Dead, pick up the packs, and fly them back to the can-cells, he said yes before the great tree had even finished the question." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "Be careful Rrudoolf!", Shakir Secur says.
[Chat]  "The little green bantha was the perfect choice for such a dangerous task.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  "He was small enough to escape the notice of predators, his green coat provided the perfect camouflage, and he could quickly fly out of harm's way.", Grapirrr says in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre smiles and leans back on Lu as she listens.
[Chat]  (happy) Nallu Koras hisses at Breshe, "I'd like to see Rrudoolf"
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre giggles and nods. "Him and Father Wroshyr both."
[Chat]  (happy) Nallu Koras hisses to Breshe, "I just don't believe anything unless it's the Scorekeeper"
[Chat]  Breshe Hou'Kre nods to her with a shrug. "Understandable, I wouldn't mind seeing her once either."

[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "So he flew down through the canopy and began to collect the packs full of gifts." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  Lorshenar says, "Wookie culture is filled with diversity.  They are trained from birth of their heritage."
[Chat]  Grapirrr says, "Strange smells and noises assaulted him.  Plants he had never seen before moved ominously, and some even spoke to him." in Shyriiwook.
[Chat]  (courtly) Aonin Halephax listens to the story with a oddly content grin.

The second part of the Life Day celebration took place in Tergill Naboo, where Valara placed the giant Wroshyr tree. Mayor Brindan placed the storyteller props and Wookiee NPCs.


The idea of this Life Day procession came from Life Day on Intrepid, hosted by Gaarbacca and MoyaWookiee. The original idea came from The Star Wars Holiday Special.

Wow. That looked like a lot of fun! Great pics!

I wished I took logs of the Tergill part. When I logged out from Nallu to Lona the logs stopped. Jitobuck had some really cool Life Day songs that her friend Moya wrote.

She will perform a few of those songs at Planet Holowood at the Nomad Market tomorrow!
