    smile Age of Ice [IC]

    Autun Harvest Festival, Village of Vale

    You are all sitting around a table made of dark wood. There are benches of the same wood on either side. You reconize it as stained oak, probably made by Jaron Ironfounderson, the Garrock council member. On one side of the bench are Alea and Altoma, and on the other side are Lamagra and Zanetus. The sky is dark, but the stars are not yet out. The table is situated a little off from all the other tables, but still in the large field. Most of the celebrations took place before the meal. Each of you have a trucheon (a thick peice of bread used as a plate) and wooden utensils in from of you, except for Zanetus, who has a metal knife. In the middle of the table are several dishes: roasted potatoes, salads, pork, and apples.
    Alea
    Alea is a short Valeyan woman, about 20 years old. She wears the normal tunic and skirt of a field worker. Her face is cheery and she has blonde hair and blue eyes.

    I would like you all to use this time to introduce your character, give a visual descrpition, and roleplay a bit (yes, you do have to do this). I will move once everybody is ready. Also, roll a spot check. I will PM you what you see if you succeed.

    Zanetus sits and eats slowly, saying nothing.* He recognises the fellow Regulean as Alea's friend, but does not attempt to start a conversation.^ Where is the fellow who should fill the last chair? Ahh well, all in good time.+

    * He wonders why Alea called him here, but trusts her to reveal it in when the time comes. Perhaps she is waiting for that last chair to be filled.
    ^ He has nothing against this fellow, but will wait for him to start any discussion that goes on. Small talk is a pointless waste of breath.

    + A voice at the back of his mind tells him there is no time, things must start happening now, but he ignores it. Perhaps more time away from town would help him calm down.

    Altoma

    Altoma sits down at the table, waving around a brand new shield excitedly, just having bought it from Jaron Ironfounderson. He's been saving his money up for it for a long time, as Alea and Lamagra should both well know. He is of average hieght and build for a 16-year-old male Valeyan, with brown eyes and brown hair.

    "This is the most awesome shield EVER! It's got great balance, it's totally shiny, it's really really sturdy, I bet you could throw rocks at it all day and it wouldn't--

    Oh, hi Alea. Lamagra.

    It wouldn't dent or anything. And check out the colour! It's pretty dark so I bet I could hide in the bushes and it wouldn't show! Where's Mom and Dad? I wanna...

    Uh.... who the heck are you?


    Altoma looks at Zanetus blankly.

    Zanetus stands and bows to the new arival, awaiting him to take his seat before siting down himself. Ah, Altoma. Pleased to meet you. Lamagra, if you wished to ask me the same question, why not when we first sat down? A touch of humour colours his voice, and one corner of his thin-lipped mouth tips up. I'm Zanetus, although you may have heard of me as the forester. I spend most of my time out in the wilderness, you see. Unless you have things you would like to talk about, I suggest you get down to eating so Alea can explain why we are here. It will get me out of your hair quicker, which I'm sure will be a great comfort to our friend here. Zanetus gestures to the Llama grass
    Note: Zanetus is looking at Altoma, largely ignoreing the more rude of his two companions.

    Intrigued by this new arrvial, Altoma's thoughts drift away from his new shield and towards how this newcomer knows his dear sister.

    So Alea called you here, too? How the heck do you know her? You guys can't be very close, I've never seen you guys hang out before."

    Altoma's eyes narrow in suspiscion. It would be very bad for this "forester" if he did anything to hurt Alea, he thinks to himself.

    Ah, so he's nothing more than a vendor to you. I see, I see.

    Altoma finally gets to eating; he picks two juicy-looking apples and a rather large slab of pork. He takes a few bites out of the apples, but concentrates on garnishing his pork, cutting pieces off, and eating them carefully. He did his best to eat politely whenever Alea was around...

    Zanetus, having returned to his seat, stoically ignores the rudeness of these people. Valyans. They just don't get it. This Regulean, however, should have at least a shred of civility.

    Vague memories of kind vilages, full of polite and loving people, tug at the back of his mind. Those must have been dreams.

    Just as he bites into his second apple, Altoma suddenly comes to a revelation.

    "Waid uh midut! You're da..."

    Altoma stops talking long enough to swallow.

    "You're the FORESTER? The guy who always comes into town and gives Alea your best meat and skins? Aw, man, I KNEW there was something familiar about you. I only remember because I heard you really lik-- er..."

    Altoma decides that may not be the most polite thing to say in front of Alea, shuts up and continues quietly chewing on his apple.

I don't know about the truth of this statement, I'm just, uh, saying what people have told me, and uh, you know, uh... that's... that's it.

    Village of Vale, The Day of Games

    Today is the Day of Games. This day always comes right after the harvest festival. Apptly named, this day is spent in freindly competition. The games include:

    The Sprint
    The Marathon
    Boasting, Belittling, and Belabouring (judged by the town council)
    Bringball (sorta like rugby with 3 people on a team)
    The Scavenger Hunt
    Wrestling
    Boxing
    The Battle (A combat with wooden swords)
    Chess (Exactly the same as we play it)

    The first event is the sprint. Participants will run across 1 field. (aprox 250ft)
    The field for the sprint is surrounded by cheering spectators. You all notice Alea in the crowd. Lined up along the start line are 3 people already ready to participate. You reconize two of them: Council Member Fharad Delah, a tall (about 6'6) Regulea with dark blonde hair; and William Wonsound, the thrillseeking son of Varrock Wonsound (the Valeyan council member). The other one is a short Valeyan, with dark hair, blue eyes, and a round face. He is jogging on the spot and doing streches. Mayor Justicar Gardus stands slightly to the side, holding a green flag, which is currently down. The flag ripples in the wind.
    Spoiler
    Show
    More info on the NPCs mentioned in the OOC thread, I put all the NPC posts into one and moved it to the last page.
    For those who wish to participate: Initiative is really the determining factor here. Run actions are allowed, but unless your base speed is 65ft or higher, it will take you two rounds, so basically it's whoever gets to move first wins.
