[ 2015.04.07 00:52:33 ] EVE System > Channel MOTD: A surprisingly comfortable space in the Emperor Family Station in the Amarr system.The walls are paneled with dark wood. Periodically there are cross-hatched sections that serve to store wine bottles horizontally. The temperature is cool. There are multiple tables and booths with sumptious velvet red cushions. Stained glass lanterns and lights providing soft lighting. Each table has a wine & beverage list with a range of wines, ales, liquors and non-alcoholic drinks such as tea. A simple menu is also on each table that indicates that complimentary bread and assorted cheeses and fruits are provided to those who order by the bottle. Along one wall is a suit of golden armor with ceremonial sword and a tabard for the theology counsel that is cut for a femine figure along with a Picture. A square parquet dance floor is in the center of the room. The proprietor Vincentus Azizora and attentive wait staff are all baseliners.A Dinner Menu is available. Besides, an elegant dinner, an array of standard bar foods from throughout the Empire are available at other times (but no fried critters). A small ad in the menu refers to the The Ashtad, a forum for "alternative dispute resolution".A small sign on the bar says "Proudly serving Lodovica's Vitae"**OOC - No holointerface is available. All who can dock at Emperor Family Station are welcome provided that they behave and are not disrespectful to the Empress, the Faith, or the Empire; those not doing so will be forcefully removed by the pair of bouncers by the door. Lurking is ok as long as private conversations are respected**
[ 2015.04.07 02:35:15 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote skips in and takes a seat at the bar.
[ 2015.04.07 02:35:44 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote glances furtively.
[ 2015.04.07 02:36:50 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote orders a Vodka with a splash of juice.
[ 2015.04.07 02:42:06 ] Kisei > /emote enters. He's dressed in the typical black conservative boringness, but it fits him well and makes him look atleast polished. He approaches the bar, looking about it any may be recognized, then asks "Scotch. Nothing fancy."
[ 2015.04.07 02:43:00 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote gives the True Amarr man a polite nod from her perch at the bar. She sips her drink.
[ 2015.04.07 02:45:35 ] Kisei > /emote receives his glass a moment after Maria's nod, then returns the gesture with the brief rise of his glass to her. "Ms Daphiti, a pleasure." and he takes an easy sip from the glass, seeming to visibly relax.
[ 2015.04.07 02:46:04 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote blinks. "Umm.. Hi." She peers at Kisei. "Have we met, yet?"
[ 2015.04.07 02:46:14 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote gives a nervous smile.
[ 2015.04.07 02:47:30 ] Kisei > "No, but I would be foolish to not be aware of you, as I am aquainted with your mother. My name is Kisei."
[ 2015.04.07 02:47:56 ] Maria Daphiti > "Oh! Hi! So your one of the Society peeps." She smiles more brightly.'
[ 2015.04.07 02:48:41 ] Kisei > /emote takes another sip of scotch, seeming to let it rest in his mouth a moment before swallowing and letting out a long sigh. "A member, yes." he doesn't sound insulted.
[ 2015.04.07 02:49:40 ] Maria Daphiti > 'Well nice to meet you! Sometimes they even fly with PIE at times!"
[ 2015.04.07 02:50:58 ] Kisei > "If there is some political implication with that statement, it didn't hit home with me, Ms Daphiti."
[ 2015.04.07 02:51:16 ] Maria Daphiti > "Oh. "
[ 2015.04.07 02:51:22 ] Kisei > /emote pushes his nearly empty glass to the edge of the bar, gesturing it to be refilled.
[ 2015.04.07 02:55:08 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote says brightly "it means I respect your pilots"
[ 2015.04.07 02:55:25 ] Kisei > /emote didn't need a refill just then.. but still insisted his drink be topped off, so it is. "I'll take it as compliment then. Thankyou."
[ 2015.04.07 02:55:49 ] Maria Daphiti > "What do you do?" She tils her head in an oddly familiar way, perhaps.
[ 2015.04.07 02:57:57 ] Kisei > "That is a good question." he drinks from his refilled glass, but seems to have no followup after.
[ 2015.04.07 02:58:41 ] Maria Daphiti > "Okies." She sips her drink.
[ 2015.04.07 02:59:26 ] Kisei > /emote gestures with his glass to Maria. "and I gather you captain for Amarr, and PIE?"
[ 2015.04.07 02:59:58 ] Maria Daphiti > "I am just an Ensign, but yes, I do fly for them. Sometimes I even fc"
[ 2015.04.07 03:01:23 ] Kisei > "I'm sure you present yourself underwhelmingly. Ms Daphiti"
[ 2015.04.07 03:02:59 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote straightens up and says brightly "Don't get me wrong! I can fight!"
[ 2015.04.07 03:03:06 ] Maria Daphiti > Umm.. it's just tactics... i need to work on.
[ 2015.04.07 03:04:30 ] Kisei > "Sometimes its not about knowing tactics, Ms Daphiti, but instead knowing better to follow someone who does."
[ 2015.04.07 03:05:08 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote nods slowly. "Commander Yanarfal usually does."
[ 2015.04.07 03:05:45 ] Kisei > "I imagine one day someone will know to follow you."
[ 2015.04.07 03:07:01 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote shrugs. "I dunno. I tend to do rash stuff sometimes. Like my cloaky tormentor experiment."
[ 2015.04.07 03:07:07 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote turns pink.
[ 2015.04.07 03:07:46 ] Maria Daphiti > "Bishop Merdaneth told me to defy expectations."
[ 2015.04.07 03:08:23 ] Kisei > "Some would call rash behavior pioneering.. dependent on success or failure."
[ 2015.04.07 03:08:43 ] Kisei > "Though, once you succeed, few will recall the failures."
[ 2015.04.07 03:09:35 ] Maria Daphiti > "I hope so. I'd rather be remembered as a good pilot. An awesome one even! But some days.. i just wish for good."
[ 2015.04.07 03:12:43 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote sips her drink, with a slightly downcast look.
[ 2015.04.07 03:13:02 ] Kisei > "Hmm." he takes another drink. "Time will tell."
[ 2015.04.07 03:16:53 ] Kisei > /emote takes a long draw, drinking the whole contents at once. "Some questions Ms Maria can't be answered by anyone but yourself"
[ 2015.04.07 03:17:10 ] Maria Daphiti > "Yeah. I guess." She doesn't seem too comforted by the thought.
[ 2015.04.07 03:19:22 ] Maria Daphiti > "You seem like you have experience in this area? knowing one's self?"
[ 2015.04.07 03:20:20 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote peers at Kisei over her drink.
[ 2015.04.07 03:22:02 ] Kisei > "Experience, yes." he says. "Though sometimes too much experience can lead to too being too patient, and inaction. It can be stifling because of too much experience in caution."
[ 2015.04.07 03:37:44 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote nods slowly being polite.
[ 2015.04.07 03:39:10 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote enters the Grape and takes a moment to look around and adjust her uniform.
[ 2015.04.07 03:39:31 ] Maria Daphiti > "I find that's true in some different places..." She straightens up slightly as she sees Mitara and slides her glass more than arm's length away.
[ 2015.04.07 03:40:27 ] Kisei > /emote pushes his empty glass to the edge of the bar, not asking for a refill. "I think i'll end the glower in your evening, Ms Daphiti, have a good night." he rises, and takes his time leaving.
[ 2015.04.07 03:40:43 ] Maria Daphiti > "Have a good night Sir! it was nice to meet you."
[ 2015.04.07 03:41:01 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote orders a mixed juice before approaching Maria. Mitara gives a slight nod when she arrives. "Ensign."
[ 2015.04.07 03:41:20 ] Maria Daphiti > Hello Admiral.
[ 2015.04.07 03:42:02 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote glances at Kisei as he takes his time leaving with a thoughtful look, then returns her gaze to Mitara.
[ 2015.04.07 03:44:44 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote raises a brow at Kisei as he leaves then turns her attention to Maria, "Did I... interrupt something?"
[ 2015.04.07 03:45:13 ] Maria Daphiti > "Oh now. I was just having a nice chat with that man. His name is Kisei and he is with SFRIM."
[ 2015.04.07 03:45:42 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Ah."
[ 2015.04.07 03:45:50 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smirks, "New faces."
[ 2015.04.07 03:46:14 ] Maria Daphiti > "He acted like an old one." she muses.
[ 2015.04.07 03:46:27 ] Graelyn > /emote appears in the doorway, as if on que
[ 2015.04.07 03:46:34 ] Mitara Newelle > Well, new to me.
[ 2015.04.07 03:46:42 ] Mitara Newelle > And then old ones...
[ 2015.04.07 03:46:53 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods to Graelyn as he enters.
[ 2015.04.07 03:46:56 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote whispers "Like him?"
[ 2015.04.07 03:47:49 ] Graelyn > /emote smiles, then stops wideeyed "Admiral! Good to see you about."
[ 2015.04.07 03:47:59 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote straightens up again and gives Graelyn a respectful smile.
[ 2015.04.07 03:48:06 ] Mitara Newelle > It is good to be about, Cardinal.
[ 2015.04.07 03:48:42 ] Mitara Newelle > What has been keeping your attention of late?
[ 2015.04.07 03:49:08 ] Graelyn > /emote turns in turn to Maria "And her plucky Ensign as well Wonderful! How have your wanderings been?"
[ 2015.04.07 03:49:59 ] Graelyn > Me, well, I've been doing a damnable lot of not much.
[ 2015.04.07 03:50:15 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote chuckles lightly.
[ 2015.04.07 03:50:34 ] Mitara Newelle > Much time for prayer and contemplation.
[ 2015.04.07 03:50:35 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods.
[ 2015.04.07 03:50:41 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote gives a nervous giggle, a bit nonplussed and remains quiet.
[ 2015.04.07 03:50:45 ] Graelyn > Pfft.
[ 2015.04.07 03:51:03 ] Graelyn > A crew chief, the other day, congratulated me on not losing a ship in 300 days.
[ 2015.04.07 03:51:13 ] Graelyn > I about died of shame.
[ 2015.04.07 03:53:12 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote says tentatively "Why? That sounds pretty good to me.."
[ 2015.04.07 03:53:14 ] Mitara Newelle > Hmm. It can happen that way. I am sure the family of the crews are not dissappointed.
[ 2015.04.07 03:53:38 ] Graelyn > I assure you, it is not some mark of skill.
[ 2015.04.07 03:53:55 ] Graelyn > Too much time at that damned Chapterhouse. It's a money pit.
[ 2015.04.07 03:54:16 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote inquires, "Chapterhouse?"
[ 2015.04.07 03:54:56 ] Graelyn > In it's prime, AM kept a fully staffed complex in Dam-Torsad.
[ 2015.04.07 03:55:16 ] Graelyn > Mostly to try to curry our successes in space to political aims at home...
[ 2015.04.07 03:55:57 ] Graelyn > In the years since said 'prime', it and the whole neighborhood around it had fallen into urban decrepidity.
[ 2015.04.07 03:56:45 ] Mitara Newelle > Ah, I see. What are you restoring it to be?
[ 2015.04.07 03:56:52 ] Graelyn > I had to clear a damn den of drug-merchants out from the basement with Kaalakiota mercenaries....
[ 2015.04.07 03:57:23 ] Graelyn > Well, right now we're trying to make it look like it did.
[ 2015.04.07 03:57:36 ] Graelyn > But it's very out of place in it's environs now.
[ 2015.04.07 03:57:37 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote blinks.
[ 2015.04.07 03:58:17 ] Mitara Newelle > I trust the proper punishments have been dealt to the drug merchants?
[ 2015.04.07 03:58:56 ] Graelyn > I don't think any got out, if that's what you mean.
[ 2015.04.07 03:59:11 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles a bit in satisfaction.
[ 2015.04.07 03:59:24 ] Graelyn > I was lucky, I had no idea such a situation would exist.
[ 2015.04.07 03:59:44 ] Graelyn > In the battle, I was quickly tossed to a somewhat stunned safety.
[ 2015.04.07 04:00:01 ] Mitara Newelle > You took direct action yourself?
[ 2015.04.07 04:00:13 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote gives her drink a faintly mournful look, but turns her attention respectfully to her elders.
[ 2015.04.07 04:00:45 ] Graelyn > Not on purpose. I strode confidently into a dark undercavern.
[ 2015.04.07 04:00:51 ] Graelyn > Like a bufoon.
[ 2015.04.07 04:01:43 ] Graelyn > My 'direct action' consisted of staring dumbly at professionals at work.
[ 2015.04.07 04:01:55 ] Mitara Newelle > No offence, Cardinal, but I would have to agree that was unwise.
[ 2015.04.07 04:03:08 ] Graelyn > Eh, well, I was at the time wrapped up in a blanket of grand nostalgia.
[ 2015.04.07 04:03:10 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote accepts her juice from the waiter and takes a sip. "What are you having there, Ensign?"
[ 2015.04.07 04:03:23 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote says lightly "juice spiked with vodka"
[ 2015.04.07 04:04:58 ] Mitara Newelle > Best to not let it sit too long then.
[ 2015.04.07 04:05:12 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote shifts on her seat and finishes her drink hastily.
[ 2015.04.07 04:05:17 ] Graelyn > I believe one of the wounded mercs did mention something about me removing my head from a certain orifice in the future.
[ 2015.04.07 04:05:41 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote shrugs uncomfortably at Graelyns implication.
[ 2015.04.07 04:07:06 ] Graelyn > So, how goes the front?
[ 2015.04.07 04:07:32 ] Graelyn > /emote looks to Maria "Actually, I'd like to know how it looks to your end of the line, Ma'am."
[ 2015.04.07 04:07:36 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote looks a bit downcast but not her place to answer that question!
[ 2015.04.07 04:08:06 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote also looks at Maria for her take on the situation.
[ 2015.04.07 04:09:57 ] Maria Daphiti > "We're loising systems. Slowly.. but losing them"
[ 2015.04.07 04:10:15 ] Maria Daphiti > "A lot of the so called militia went pirate after we took the warzone." She grimaces.
[ 2015.04.07 04:10:33 ] Maria Daphiti > Frankly.. it umm.. sucks.
[ 2015.04.07 04:10:44 ] Graelyn > /emote has a resigned look "Ah."
[ 2015.04.07 04:10:51 ] Maria Daphiti > But Pyre and PiE are still doing well in their regions.
[ 2015.04.07 04:11:11 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote twitches in an oddly familiar way at the mention of Pyre and made that mention rather grudingly.
[ 2015.04.07 04:11:31 ] Graelyn > /emote notices this and barely suppresses a smile
[ 2015.04.07 04:11:54 ] Mitara Newelle > If you will both excuse me, I have some things to tend to.
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:01 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote downs the rest of her juice.
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:07 ] Maria Daphiti > "Okies.. , mean, yes Ma'am!"
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:14 ] Graelyn > /emote stands
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:27 ] Graelyn > Admiral, always a pleasure.
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:39 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote hastily goes to her feet. She slightly stumbles but straightens quickly.
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:46 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote gives a nod to Graelyn and Maria.
[ 2015.04.07 04:12:56 ] Mitara Newelle > Go with God, Brother and Sister.
[ 2015.04.07 04:13:03 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote turns and heads towards the exit.
[ 2015.04.07 04:14:17 ] Graelyn > /emote looks to Maria "It sounds like my Alliance needs to get it's act together. Our efforts are needed."
[ 2015.04.07 04:14:55 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote glances at Graelyn and shifts slightly as she sits back in her seat. "Yeppers, i think so! I.. umm.. tried to fleet with Kithrus once, but other than he and Merdaneth I've not met any"
[ 2015.04.07 04:15:02 ] Graelyn > Growing from scrath has been harder and slower than any other incarnation of the AM.
[ 2015.04.07 04:15:14 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote nods.
[ 2015.04.07 04:15:58 ] Graelyn > We took on the Holy Amarrian Battlemonks, but they had a crisis of leadership.
[ 2015.04.07 04:16:13 ] Maria Daphiti > Oh. Those guys.
[ 2015.04.07 04:16:17 ] Graelyn > They seem to be stabilizing finally.
[ 2015.04.07 04:16:23 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote nods. "They seemed a little wierd at first"
[ 2015.04.07 04:16:36 ] Graelyn > /emote smiles "At first?"
[ 2015.04.07 04:16:51 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote giggles nervously.
[ 2015.04.07 04:18:22 ] Maria Daphiti > Well.. I am always happy to fly with Militia peeps. If you need help, just let me know as long as PIE doesn't have me on a patrol.
[ 2015.04.07 04:19:30 ] Graelyn > I truly do hope to take you up on that offer.
[ 2015.04.07 04:20:02 ] Maria Daphiti > Has your plan to use Thera as a base to strike the warzone worked? I think Kithrus mentioned that to me...
[ 2015.04.07 04:22:07 ] Graelyn > /emote sighs "I have begun to feel that it has not. That is a good utility for a single pilot who might not know where in the cluster he might need to be that day, but for groups, it's really just extra complication..."
[ 2015.04.07 04:23:45 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote nods. "Yeah. I mean it's entrance keeps moving too right? I'd be sooo confused"
[ 2015.04.07 04:24:16 ] Graelyn > That part isn't so hard, a team of hardworking Thera residents plot every exit 24 hours a day.
[ 2015.04.07 04:25:06 ] Graelyn > It's just....well, let's say you're needed in the Bleaks, but for some reason, this one hour, only Tash-Murkon is reachable.
[ 2015.04.07 04:25:14 ] Graelyn > Well, you're not too well off, are you?
[ 2015.04.07 04:25:22 ] Maria Daphiti > Nope!
[ 2015.04.07 04:25:33 ] Graelyn > Eventually the exit you want is there, but then only half your pilots can take advantage.
[ 2015.04.07 04:25:49 ] Graelyn > Within a day, your forces can get strewn across Regions.
[ 2015.04.07 04:26:24 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote frowns. "Yep! that's a problem."
[ 2015.04.07 04:26:44 ] Graelyn > With focus and practice, we could make such a thing work, but at our current larval stage, we just muck about embarassingly in such maneuvers.
[ 2015.04.07 04:26:58 ] Maria Daphiti > "You'd need large numbers...."
[ 2015.04.07 04:27:16 ] Graelyn > /emote nods "Larger anyways."
[ 2015.04.07 04:27:42 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote frowns as her datapad beeps. "Uhoh... that's the Admiral. I need to return to Mehatoor."
[ 2015.04.07 04:27:53 ] Graelyn > Oh, by all means.
[ 2015.04.07 04:28:00 ] Graelyn > /emote stands
[ 2015.04.07 04:28:09 ] Maria Daphiti > "Good night Sir! Umm thanks for talking to me"
[ 2015.04.07 04:28:24 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote says brightly "i still have your first autograph to me"
[ 2015.04.07 04:28:32 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote giggles nervously.
[ 2015.04.07 04:28:53 ] Graelyn > Godspeed Ensign, don't mind the growing shadows, the eventual dawn is rarely inconvenienced.
[ 2015.04.07 04:29:12 ] Graelyn > Oh?
[ 2015.04.07 04:29:17 ] Graelyn > Heh, the net.
[ 2015.04.07 04:29:39 ] Graelyn > /emote bows slightly, looking a bit pleased
[ 2015.04.07 04:29:59 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote curtseys a bit unsteadily "Have Blessed night"
[ 2015.04.07 04:30:09 ] Maria Daphiti > /emote makes her way out.
[ 2015.04.07 04:30:51 ] Graelyn > /emote waves as she goes, and settles down to finally order something terrible
