Popular topic of conversation
Just back from the wars

Orks recieved Arms stolen from the Wars I was in.

No Eshu means nothing to me.

Shara Eshu wants Ven on the Battlements, I say Orks need to be attacked and Harried and I will cut off supply at the bridge.

Tazo Reinhold is inanely jealous of my combat skills.

Due to our mutual honesty, Yoland and I become fast friends

People are afraid of Aestrith Thali and myself, and I conceded the duel because she was the Host.

No Eshu

Yolanda is a public foil against rumours of sorcery in House Falcon (style)

Svetlana tried to lace the food, but it was discovered, and Falcon’s roadsmen followed her back to the base and found the secret entrance (wagered)

(secret) a year ago Yoran survived an attempted poisoning by arsenic (style)

(secret) Tazo finds Yoren incredibly sexually attractive (style)

(secret) Tazo is seriously contemplating becoming No’s vassal (style); it is because No saved his life at some time in their common past (style)

There is an arena on top of Aestreth’s Castle (style)

Svetlana is in the castle, and she is not caught, but is discovered at dawn by Sven
(Wagered)

(secret) Yoran is bitterly jealous that he is not the Dean of the University (style);
The current Dean (Malkin Kalis, Aestrith’s Court Scolar) scammed Yoren out of the position of the Dean (style); Malkin did that because he did not trust a Serpent to serve a Falcon loyalty (style)

Yolanda is definitely not a “sorcerer” (style)

Observatory can be used for astronomy, which is “not sorcery” (style)

The Aria that No composed depicts the battle on the mountain from last session, both Aestreth and Shara are depicted as heroes, and winning in the face of great adversity (wagered)

Moryandal was a popular topic of conversation, because he has just come back from the
wars (style)

The Orks are marching on the No capital, and they are really well armed with weapons
provided from the war (Style)

War plan:

That the plan will successfully hold off the attack if we amass a defence at my castle
(wagered)
IT is insufficent to hold their defence, we will need to harry them (wagered)
As many Ven as possible will need to be upon the battlements to succeed (wagered)
If a small force harries them, we will successfully cut off their supply lines (wagered)
If we catch them in the lee of the hillside, we will be able to contain them (wagered)
If the plan fails, we can starve them out when they are contianed (wagered)

Singer is Trixauna

Falcons are so often seeking lost works (style)

Falcon etiquette does not require a gift, but it is held in esteem if one does (style)

“Needs before business, business before pleasure” (style)
At the end of the night, it is time of the Challenge of the Falcon; not considered sorcery;
each participant is faced with their greatest fear, and lasts until dawn. (style)

In The Challenge of the Falcon, you face both a fear of the body and the mind, and people have been known to die (style);
the host goes first, (Style), and if one fails all the ven participating shall know (style)

The ritual requires the supplicant to drink from a chalice with a drop of their own blood. (style)
The ritual is purely voluntary (style)

It is against Falcon etiquette to turn down a challenge, because that would be
uncourageous; unless one is injured (style)

(secret) the Dean’s magic is tinged with new sorcery (waged)

No Eshu passed out while facing the horror, but did not leave the room, thus passing the test
(wagered)

It’s not a good Bear party unless someone spills something.

No Eshu

Tarzo’s Domain is the centre-point of trade amongst us, however the main trade route goes through No

Fayla’s castle holds the biggest store of historical amongst us,

Hosting is at Tarzo’s

Tarzo’s castle is on a mountain pass that the main trade route runs through, it is the point where multiple small routes converge to then run through into No.

The Falcon’s are resistant to the corrupting influence of the relic. However Fox are entirely susceptible to its effects.

Cut down in the first act, my wife defended my virtue and then carried me to safety.

Bear Sayings “Not a good party unless something is spilled”

Bear Etiquette

Not to change locations once it has been agreed upon

One must show up with a display of force.

You must welcome your guests warmly.

Interrupting is not rude it is the strength of the argument that wins the strength of the table.

It is poor etiquette to lose one’s anger, even in the height of bluster.

It is an insult of the highest order to deceive at a bear event.

The one who spills it must clean it up.

Bears can receive guests in bed!

Not representing yourself at a bear meeting is an insult.

Bear saying “All Ven are equal”

Bear proverb “Winners drink first, losers drink most”

Svetlana Polaris was waylaid at the mountain pass, having aggroed orks from No’s swamps.

Svetlana has bent the orks to her will, which is illegal as is having orks on ones’ land, which is remedied with the orks destruction.

All are expected to participate in the affairs,
One must fight their own battles,
Ladies need not fight, unless they are Ven,

Falcon Etiquette

13 is the age when you must prove yourself as a falcon; and you cannot marry until you prove yourself.

Secret

No’s Secrets

I have orchestrated it,
I am working with the Ork, which is a deception, but some of my people have gone native

Aestrith broke Shara’s heart
(NOT A TRUTH YET which all was orchestrated by No to cause Shara to come back to him)

Bear Etiquette

Arrangements for the location of a meeting cannot be changed once they are agreed upon.

One must show up with a show of force.
