    Location: SFRIM Offices. Bar. Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons Factory

    Setting: The main gathering area of the Society, the bar sports plush leather couches centered around a long coffee table. Low music plays songs from around the galaxy. The soft blue lighting is easy on the eyes, but still light enough to see what you're doing and where you're going. The shelves are filled haphazardly with bottles of spirits, clearly labeled. The whiskeys shelf label has been taped over by Lucas. There is a shelf with rum on it, with a fresh label reading 'Alexi'. Above that, is Nicoletta's shelf, with juice mixes and exotic wine, with a few bottles of absinthe here and there. A long line of bottles of Quafe are on a shelf with a "DON'T TOUCH!" sign by Rhoxy. Johanes has a shelf with brandies and cognac and a lone bottle of smurgleblaster. One shelf labeled "Lord Anderson's" has three bottles of brandy from Gallente space, along with other liquors. Lunarisse's shelf has spiced wine and other vintages from around New Eden, with a few religious texts leaning against the bottles. New to her collection is one tall, elegant bottle with amarrian scrollwork of Cream Liqueur, one tall elegant bottle with amarrian scrollwork of Chocolate Liqueur, one stout, wide bottle with amarrian scroll work of Chocolate sauce with added black tea all wrapped in a secure richly coloured, dark wood box. A shelf labeled "Alizabeth" has several boxes of teas.There are a few other shelves that hold overflow and shared drinks for all. A well stocked refrigerator is behind the bar and equipmebnt to brew teas and coffees are behind the bar.

    On the walls are starscapes with Society members, painted by Lord Anderson

    Against one wall is a majestic golden Tash-Murkon Grandmother Clock, secured so it does not tip.

    There is Sarum Shepard named " Quark"

    Exits: Gottin's Lamp - Kitchen, Gottin's Lamp - Sleeping Area, Gottin's Lamp - Library, and Gottin's Lamp

    [ 2016.01.23 05:01:39 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote rushes through the bar, and into the kitchen.
    [ 2016.01.23 05:01:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. Quark and two new dogs pad after all. She unleases them and them plops into a chair.
    [ 2016.01.23 05:03:31 ] Rhoxy Runekin > ((aww, quark's all grown up!)) Rhoxanne returns a few minutes later carry a tray with a few cups balanced on it, the warm scent of chocolate filling the lamp as she enters, carefully making her way over to where Luna sits.

    [ 2016.01.23 05:05:13 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote too looks at the plethora of pups, "I prepared a little extra, but i didn't anticipate such company."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:07:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote makes her way in and heads over to the shelf with the boxes of tea on it. She makes a polite bow to Luna. "Directrix." and starts to put some of the leaves into a paper envelope
    [ 2016.01.23 05:07:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a bleak chuckle "Well 2 of them are on loan."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:07:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "When the kids move out, I need to return them to Utari Onzo. They are therapy dogs/"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:09:30 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote bos to Ali, then returns attentio to Luna, "That's so sad, I didn't know dogs could need therapy." she picks up a cup of cocoa, and sits. there's a cup for Luna, as well as two others as of yet unclaimed.
    [ 2016.01.23 05:10:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head "No.. the children who suffered at the Butcher's hands, needed comfort."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:11:57 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote takes a sip. "That.. makes more sense."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:12:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They are pure love."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:12:40 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote finishes collecting her tea and heads to the door.
    [ 2016.01.23 05:12:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh Ali!"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:13:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notices Ali and calls out. "Do you have a minute?"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:14:20 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stops. "Yes, ma'am." she says. "What is it?"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:14:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Come and sit if you don't mind the dogs." She gives a wan smile. "My neck will hurt if I have to look up"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:15:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote closes the envelope and takes a seat. "I don't mind them."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:15:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > "They make for good stew."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:15:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I have a promise I needto keep Ali, even if it is.. unwise."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:16:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it's. a matter of Honor, giving my word." She looks at Ali "Something I am sure you understand?"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:16:33 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote sips her cocoa, eyes shifting between the two.
    [ 2016.01.23 05:17:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes, ma'am."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:18:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know this short notice, but can you escort me? We've been given a promise of safe conduct but I don't.. I domn't trust the word of a Sani Sabik"

    [ 2016.01.23 05:18:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote clears her throat. "Perhaps you should tell me the promise?"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:19:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I promised to give it to the winner of the contest, at a location of her choice"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:19:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My writing contest"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:19:27 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote 's ears perk, "Synthia, that bio-android?"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:19:30 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Where is the location?"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:19:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says testily to Rhoxy "yes."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:19:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says to Ali "Katrozopol in Delve"
    [ 2016.01.23 05:20:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We'll be planetside."

    [ 2016.01.23 05:21:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > "But acceptable."
    [ 2016.01.23 05:21:53 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote just frowns.
    [ 2016.01.23 05:25:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I disagree. I will keep my word."

    [ 2016.01.23 05:29:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I should have. I try to read the works before I see the authors.. so I have no.. preconceptions"

    [ 2016.01.23 05:36:54 ] Rhoxy Runekin > "yes, yes, that would be horrible... but on the off- chance." she looks down at her cocoa, trying not to make eye contact.

    2016.01.23 16:27:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes that Kador and Thal would be shown to the Lamp once they arrive in station and brought to the private gathering room of the Society.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:27:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is still primping, fussing with her hair and getting dressed and will be there shortly.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:28:12 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps inside, dressed in a black suit (( http://fringe.wikia.com/Henry_Ian_Cusick ))
    [ 2016.01.23 16:34:15 ] Thal Vadam > /emote also has a black hat on
    [ 2016.01.23 16:42:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is made up and her hair is exactly just so. She is wearing a white lace sun dress that somehow manages to be modest: http://i.imgur.com/NE9Vj4l.png
    [ 2016.01.23 16:43:11 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote after arriving the stations bustling shuttle bays makes for Gottin's Lamp following Lunarisse's directions. He steps through the door in relatively formal clothing made from thin materials.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:43:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Hello Templar Vadam. is your compatriot coming?" She glances also to see if Aria is here yet.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:43:22 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote trots quietly. Her own garb is a black dress, bit of a ruffle around the neckline and shoulders, with stockings and light boots-- inevitably, all black.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:43:49 ] Thal Vadam > /emote gestures to Kador "Indeed he is Luna"
    [ 2016.01.23 16:44:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods with approval. "I trust everyone has backed off their soft clones. Not that I expect trouble mind you..."

    [ 2016.01.23 16:45:13 ] Thal Vadam > /emote seems to be unarmed
    [ 2016.01.23 16:45:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good." She smiles bleakly "Ms. Jenneth, if you wish to bring a .. recording device for your journal, I suspect there will be no objection."
    [ 2016.01.23 16:46:05 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote approaches the small group. "Salve. Lady Aspenstar, Thal, Miss."
    [ 2016.01.23 16:46:38 ] Thal Vadam > /emote reaches into his coat and pulls out a pistol, clipping it to his side
    [ 2016.01.23 16:47:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. It'd be a little hard not to. Possible, I guess ...
    [ 2016.01.23 16:48:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says innocently "I encourage you to take a lot of pictures. Can you append coordinates to them for our records?" Her face is a mask.

    Kaztropol.

    An Interbus connected shuttle takes you to the Kaztropol Spaceport, and a connecting monorail service leads to Kaztropolis itself.The Old PalaceKaztropolis CathedralMonorailSpaceport

    Kaztropolis itself is quite a busy city. Many people can be seen in the streets, shopping, running errands, going to and from church, discussing the issues of the day, or simply walking for the enjoyment of it. The citizens are dressed in a great range of fashions, with some wearing ornate robes and hats, while some, mostly women, are only wearing shoes. Some of those nude women wear bells, others wear body jewellery of various kinds.The streets have a lot of street furniture. Lamp-posts, litter bins, benches, informational signs, and ornamental statues make the streets look rather cluttered at times.In the roadways, a number of vehicles may be seen. Official vehicles of the Crown agencies are easily distinguished by their pink and white paint scheme.

    [ 2016.01.23 16:54:24 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote watches the landing shuttle, and awaits the visitors, at the spaceport monorail station.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:55:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote disembarks first. She is wearing a white lace sundress that manages to be modest. Her long hair is down and not a strand it out of place. ((http://i.imgur.com/NE9Vj4l.png))
    [ 2016.01.23 16:56:23 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps out of the shuttle, dressed in a black suit with matching hat and a sidearm upon his belt
    [ 2016.01.23 16:56:29 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote checks the visitor list.
    [ 2016.01.23 16:56:42 ] Thal Vadam > (( http://fringe.wikia.com/Henry_Ian_Cusick for face ))

    [ 2016.01.23 16:58:34 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote approaches the blonde Amarr. "Ms Aspenstar ?"
    [ 2016.01.23 16:59:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtseys, her gaze carefully on Orvan. "Yes, that is one of my names. And who do I have the pleasure of addressing?"
    [ 2016.01.23 16:59:24 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote disembarks after Thal. She's dressed in a rather less-elaborate dress, sleeveless, ruffled about the neck and shoulders, with stockings, hat, and light boots-- all black.*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:00:13 ] Orvan Arkaral > Ah, Orvan Arkaral, First Space Lord of the Admiralty, Imperial Kaztropolitan Space Force, at your service.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:00:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You do us Honor by greeting us, Lord Admiral."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:01:19 ] Aria Jenneth > *she's also carrying on her belt a small Amarrian sidearm and a long, curved dagger, whose pale wooden sheath is about the only thing on her person that isn't black*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:01:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As I indicated to Queen Synthia, I do have some others. Templars Vadam and Ouryon, and Society Member Aria Jenneth. One of my Society members is in orbit as well."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:01:39 ] Orvan Arkaral > Indeed.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:01:48 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote steps out of the shuttle also wearing something loose fitting for the climat, little lessformal yet with a matching pair of visors to keep the summer sun out of his eyes. He runs a hand through his short dark hair and glances about the landing pa...
    [ 2016.01.23 17:02:14 ] Orvan Arkaral > Did you have a pleasant trip ?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:02:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles wryly "I am coming to Queen Synthia's... 'turf' after all. I trust it will just turn out to be a pleasant diversion for them." She nods. "The trip was uneventful."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:02:47 ] Kador Ouryon > (( http://imgur.com/aupX7Bq ))
    [ 2016.01.23 17:03:10 ] Orvan Arkaral > Excellent, there is a monorail awaiting us, which shall take us to Kaztropolis proper.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:03:16 ] Aria Jenneth > *her only jewelry is a black lacquer bracelet on her left wrist. Despite her armaments and plain clothes, her demeanor is more (slightly suppressed) excited teenaged tourist than bodyguard. She keeps hopping up on tiptoe for a better view*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:03:48 ] Kador Ouryon > "How far is the city proper if you don't mind me asking?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:04:05 ] Orvan Arkaral > Oh, about ten minutes by the monorail.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:04:38 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote realised in his excite me he forgot the proper form of address. "Thank you....Lord Admiral."

    [ 2016.01.23 17:05:06 ] Orvan Arkaral > Indeed, shall we proceed ?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:05:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:06:39 ] Orvan Arkaral > outstanding, the monorail is just this way. *turns and begins walking to the waiting monorail*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:06:42 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods and follows after Luna
    [ 2016.01.23 17:06:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eyes flicker briefly over the nude women, her face is expressionless. "I notice only the women for the most part are nude, not the men."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:06:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote arches an eyebrow slightly.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:07:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote lingers on the platform, She glances at Orvan.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:07:40 ] Orvan Arkaral > Hmm ? Oh yes. Fashion.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:07:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Seems to be rather one sided?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:07:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:08:16 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote presses a button on the monorail carriage, and the doors open, A female Amarr voice says "Mind the Gap"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:08:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My pardon, Lord Admiral, I shan't delay you further. i am sure Queen Sythia is waiting."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:08:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:08:40 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote waits for everyone to board

    [ 2016.01.23 17:08:57 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote follows suit barely bothered by the summer climate however as Lunarisse metions the the women he tried to keep his his eyes looking around the architecture. "Are the bells a fasion too?" He remarks off hand.

    [ 2016.01.23 17:10:21 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote enters the carriage, and the doors close, with the voice saying "Please stand clear of the Doors"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:10:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Seems very efficient."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:10:58 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote takes a seat. "Ah, yes. Fashion. Well, I'm not really the expert on fashion trends in the city."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:12:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Of course, Milord,I am sure you have more serious things to worry about." Her blues eyes are wide and innocent.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:12:52 ] Thal Vadam > /emote closes his eyes and breathes slowly
    [ 2016.01.23 17:12:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So where are we heading?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:13:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'In the City, that is?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:13:27 ] Orvan Arkaral > To Central station.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:13:28 ] Kador Ouryon > "Interesting, Lord Admiral. I look forward to learning more about Kaztropol's customs."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:14:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. Milord admiral? If ... it's not impertinent to ask ... -- I'm sorry, Aria Jenneth, Society Peregrinans ...
    [ 2016.01.23 17:14:35 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote gestures out of the window of the moving train, as it passes through farmland. "These are the outlying farms, and over there, you can see the Great Wall, and there is the spire of the Cathedral, Yes, miss ?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:15:05 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... um. Are there any social markings usually worked into clothing styles? People of such and such status wear this, others wear that?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:15:39 ] Orvan Arkaral > Ah, yes. Hats of Office and so on.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:15:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm curious whether there's a ... language ... to what I'm seeing people wearing. Or, um, not wearing.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:15:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances out the windows to see what there is to be seen as the Admiral comments.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:15:47 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnod*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:15:49 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote turns to listen, interested by the direction the discussion had taken.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:16:22 ] Orvan Arkaral > The ladies who are wearing bells are a different social class to the ladies wearing jewellery, yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:16:53 ] Aria Jenneth > May I ask what the classes are, milord?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:17:05 ] Orvan Arkaral > Of course.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:18:02 ] Orvan Arkaral > The ladies wearing gold jewellery, are the nobility. Holders, as it were.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:18:08 ] Thal Vadam > /emote also looks out at the farms
    [ 2016.01.23 17:18:43 ] Kador Ouryon > "I see and the Bell represent the common people or slaves?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:19:23 ] Orvan Arkaral > A specific kind of slave, yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:19:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at the Lord Admiral.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:19:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What kind?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:19:43 ] Thal Vadam > "What kind?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:20:11 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she cocks her head, nodding. Her eyes are as black as her outfit, and feverishly bright. She cocks her head the other way* ... the sort usually implied by that sort of provocative undress?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:20:43 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote coughs. "slave in the employ of the Dairy Collective"

    [ 2016.01.23 17:21:41 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote looks uncomfortable "It's um... I'm not exactly an expert in agriculture"

    [ 2016.01.23 17:22:36 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote hears the monorail announce "Now Arriving at Kaztropolis Central Station"

    [ 2016.01.23 17:23:19 ] Orvan Arkaral > Ah, we'll be arriving soon.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:23:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says coolly "Let's see what else there is."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:23:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What is the Great Wall, Lord admiral?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:24:01 ] Orvan Arkaral > Ah, the Great Wall. One of the Queen's grand projects.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:24:23 ] Orvan Arkaral > it is a large wall, some ten metres in height, to keep out the wilderness creatures.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:24:26 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote keeps his face expressionless as the implications of the Lord Admiral's statements sink in. As the monorail comes to a halt he steps off onto the platform and into Kaztropolis.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:25:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What sort of creatures?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:25:50 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote waits for everyone to alight from the train. The train says "Mind the Gap"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:26:11 ] Orvan Arkaral > Oh, roving wombats of fearsome size. Apparently they were quite the terror.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:26:25 ] Orvan Arkaral > There's an exhibit in the Museum of Natural History
    [ 2016.01.23 17:26:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote arches an eye brow "Roving wombats? I thought they were cute little fuzzy things."

    [ 2016.01.23 17:28:16 ] Orvan Arkaral > Ordinarily that is correct, Ms Aspenstar.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:28:42 ] Orvan Arkaral > the largest species on Kaztropol, however, stands around 2 metres at the shoulder.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:29:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Goodness. That's almost as big as a horse"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:29:21 ] Orvan Arkaral > Indeed.

    [ 2016.01.23 17:30:08 ] Kador Ouryon > "That certainly is a fearsome size. Did they often make forays into urban areas?"

    [ 2016.01.23 17:30:51 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps out, his displeasure growing with each step, but he keeps a smile on his face
    [ 2016.01.23 17:30:59 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote hasn't really stopped examining their surroundings since getting off the train*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:31:29 ] Orvan Arkaral > The largest ones rarely entered urban areas. The smaller ones are more of a nuisance, as they have a tendency to open containers.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:31:35 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote leads the party to a waiting vehicle, a large pink & white ground car.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:31:43 ] Orvan Arkaral > If we step this way...
    [ 2016.01.23 17:32:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote asks "I noticed a lot of pink and white.. is that colorpattern of significance" She glances at Thal, Aria and Kador and alights carefully into the car.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:32:49 ] Orvan Arkaral > Ah, Pink is one of Her Majesty's favourite colours.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:32:53 ] Thal Vadam > /emote follows Luna into the car
    [ 2016.01.23 17:33:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. Are they the royal colors, then?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:33:12 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote steps aside to politely allow Aria access to the vehicle, perhaps because he was preoccupied with the other sights of the city.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:33:42 ] Orvan Arkaral > For official vehicles, yes. Pink and white denotes a vehicle on Crown business.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:33:47 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote becomes aware that, goodness my, there's a vehicle she's supposed ot get into, and does so*

    [ 2016.01.23 17:36:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Wonderful." she pauses "What else is there to see in the Museum of Natural History?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:36:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I do like such things, I confess"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:36:50 ] Thal Vadam > "How long has this nation existed...?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:37:19 ] Orvan Arkaral > Oh, there are a number of exhibitions. Land creatures, such as the wombats, sea creatures, the insect world, an exhibition on the history of the Ant Wars.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:38:22 ] Orvan Arkaral > The planet has been inhabited for several thousand years, sir, though Kaztropol as a nation is much newer.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:39:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. The ... "Ant Wars," Admiral? Are ants also ... larger than usual here?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:40:30 ] Orvan Arkaral > Around twice the size of more common ant species. The Ant War is a somewhat humorous name.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:41:36 ] Aria Jenneth > Oh ... so ... sort of a ... series of severe infestations at some point? Or ...
    [ 2016.01.23 17:42:11 ] Orvan Arkaral > Yes, they intruded into the Palace. The Queen was not pleased.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:42:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:43:03 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote smirks. "And how did you remove them?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:43:49 ] Orvan Arkaral > A breakthrough by Imperial Pharmaceuticals. Ant pheromones.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:44:07 ] Orvan Arkaral > The Ants were persuaded to cede territory. Peace broke out.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:44:49 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nodnod, and a slight smile*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:45:13 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote looks out of the window as the car approaches the Palace. "Slow down and stop at the gate."

    [ 2016.01.23 17:47:52 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps out of the car and pops his neck
    [ 2016.01.23 17:48:14 ] Orvan Arkaral > Do you play chess at all, Ms. Aspenstar ?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:50:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My,,,, uncle does"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:50:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But i do like to garden." she gives a polite smile.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:50:58 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote also indicates the Amazing Maze, a neatly maintained maze hedge. It is 2ft tall.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:51:41 ] Thal Vadam > /emote glances at the maze "...Small maze"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:51:56 ] Orvan Arkaral > Yes... It will grow taller in time
    [ 2016.01.23 17:52:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How long ago was it planted?"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:53:07 ] Orvan Arkaral > Some years ago, I believe.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:54:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *just quietly absorbs ... well, everything*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:54:50 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote nods looking out across it and trying to trace the path through it with his eyes. "Perhaps in time it will live up to its namesake and provice quite the distraction for guests."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:55:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it's very slow moving plant. She may wish to try the faster growing Dam-Torsad Box Hedge"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:55:34 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote leads the party past the ornamental cuttlefish pond, some of the cuttlefish appear to observe the passers-by, while others are flickering colours at each other, possibly in conversation.

    Kaztropol - Tour by Synthia

    [ 2016.01.23 18:03:49 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote leads the party to a lawn, where Synthia is sitting on a bench. A small Amarr child is also present. "Your Majesty, your guests are here."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:04:00 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote looks up. "Hello."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:04:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtseys. "Hello, Your Grace"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:05:05 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote says "say 'hello' Zara." the small child, a girl, says "elo", before hiding behind Synthia's dress
    [ 2016.01.23 18:05:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a smile. "Hello, Little Grace"  She curtseys to Zara as well.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:05:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > I am Pleased that you are able to Visit.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:06:12 ] Thal Vadam > /emote bows "Your majesty" He bites down
    [ 2016.01.23 18:06:33 ] Synthetic Cultist > Have you had a Pleasant Journey ?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:06:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes.  The Lord Admiral has been a gracious guide."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:06:50 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote waits her turn before bowing, deeply and, for the moment, in silence.*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:07:01 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote bows politely if a little bit more exaggeratedly to the Queen and then the child. "Hello, Your Grace."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:08:28 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote smiles "Excellent."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:09:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Your Palace is lovely as are the gardens"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:09:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "May I introduce my companions?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:09:55 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:10:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > '"From the Society is Peregrinans Aria Jenneth.  Also accompanying me today are Templas Vadam and Ouryon, Classiarii from PIE"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:11:03 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods "A Pleasure to Meet You All"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:11:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "In orbit is my Satellium, Alizabeth Vea, keeping an eye on Local."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:11:56 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote bows once more as she is introduced. The style is of Dam Torsad, and is good enough that she must have put a lot of time in practicing it*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:12:36 ] Kador Ouryon > "It's a pleasure to be here Your Grace, I've heard from the Lord Admiral that Kaztropol has a rich history which I look forwards to learning more about."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:13:05 ] Synthetic Cultist > Thank you. There is a Lot of History. You are Welcome to Learn More.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:13:09 ] Thal Vadam > /emote also bows again
    [ 2016.01.23 18:13:55 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote turns around, looking for Zara, who runs around Synthia's skirt, keeping out of sight for a few seconds, before Synthia eventually finds her, and scoops her up. "This is my Daughter, Zara". The little girl grins.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:14:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Zara is cute."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:14:42 ] Synthetic Cultist > Thank You. I have been Told she has my Eyes.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:14:59 ] Thal Vadam > "Hello Zara"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:15:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Forgive me.. for my impertinence.. But.. as a being such as you are.  Is she your daughter or adopted?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:15:32 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote smiles at the young woman poking her head comically out from behind her mothers skirts. "Lovelly to meet you Princess."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:15:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks genuinely curious at the human looking little girl.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:15:53 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods "she is my daughter."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:15:53 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote smiles shyly at Zara from behind Luna and offers a little wave of a hand*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:16:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Interesting."  She does not comment further.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:17:34 ] Synthetic Cultist > My Daughter was Unexpected.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:18:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks. "I've heard that with.. well.. humans.  How could she be unexpected for one such as you?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:19:08 ] Synthetic Cultist > I was Misinformed about the Capabilities of my Body.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:19:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote puts Zara down, and she runs off to hide behind Admiral Arkaral
    [ 2016.01.23 18:21:05 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote talks to Zara "Hello Princess, how are you ?", and Zara says "mummy lost in maze", giggling.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:21:18 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote smiles at the childish displays of innocence. "Nevertheless she seems like quite a shy young girl."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:21:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Well she is a lovely surprise, I am sure."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:22:09 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. She is very Inspiring.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:22:39 ] Orvan Arkaral > your Majesty, your guests were asking about the umm, ladies with bells.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:23:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > I See. Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:24:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says coolly "I think we've been informed sufficiently at this point, your Grace"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:24:11 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote perks up an ear, but says nothing. At all.*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:24:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'But.." she shrugs.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:25:08 ] Synthetic Cultist > My Daughter was the Inspiration for the Idea.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:25:30 ] Thal Vadam > "..." He sighs
    [ 2016.01.23 18:25:31 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote shudders uncomfortably. "She was?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:25:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *blinks*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:26:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches slightly and says in a strained voice 'She was?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:26:54 ] Synthetic Cultist > We have a Mother and Baby group in Kaztropolis. One of the other Mothers was blessed with Triplets. Which are Logistically Complicated. I had an Idea, and formed the Dairy Collective, for the Benefit of All Citizens.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:27:36 ] Synthetic Cultist > I would Not have been Aware of such a Social Problem, If I did not have my Daughter.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:27:51 ] Aria Jenneth > ... so it's ... specifically for the children, Your Grace?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:27:53 ] Aria Jenneth > Or ...
    [ 2016.01.23 18:29:10 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. All citizens are expected to Contribute, for the benefit of all Children.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:29:32 ] Aria Jenneth > And ... the bells, Your Grace?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:30:02 ] Synthetic Cultist > it is a Uniform, of Sorts.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:30:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says coolly "I see."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:30:54 ] Synthetic Cultist > denoting specific status, and conferring certain Rights upon the Wearer.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:31:05 ] Synthetic Cultist > It is Efficient.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:31:05 ] Aria Jenneth > I ... may misunderstand, Your Grace.... The ... Admiral indicated that they were a particular ... class of slave, rather than, ah, citizenry.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:31:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:33:03 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. the Ladies you see wearing Bells are technically Slaves belonging to the Dairy Collective. However, all Citizens are expected to Contribute. It is Written.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:33:55 ] Kador Ouryon > "Explaining Kaztropol's latest... er.... 'fashion' somewhat."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:33:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... I see. Thank you, Your Grace, and ... I apologize for ... um. Prolonging the subject.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:34:03 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote plays hide and seek with Zara.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:34:13 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:34:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > Were there Other questions about Fashion ?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:20 ] Synthetic Cultist > Some Aspects of Kaztropolitan Fashion are Difficult to Interpret, for Amarr people.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:36:25 ] Kador Ouryon > "None, Your Grace. Perhaps I will come to understand it better in time. The climate here in Kaztropol is wonderful indeed. I reminds me of my own home on Marthia... since it is in the sub-tropics the heat is agreeable to me."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:37:23 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. It is Warm here in Summer.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:37:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > I like your Dress, Lunarisse.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:39:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you your Grace.  Yours is lovely as well.  Reminds me of a Sarum Summer Dress."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:39:05 ] Synthetic Cultist > Who is your Dressmaker ? The Patterns are very Ornate.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:39:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Except.. err.. we have a higher cut in cleaveage."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:39:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I go to a few shops in Dam Torsad.  Sometimes I use Finch & Cambridge"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:40:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The latter are designing new uniforms for the Society'
    [ 2016.01.23 18:40:36 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote glances down, unsure if Lunarisse was expressing Disapproval of her dress, which is low cut enough to show her gold necklace.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:41:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Synthia.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:41:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Are we eating outside as a picnic or inside?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:41:59 ] Synthetic Cultist > Finch and Cambridge, I am not Familiar with them. Do they have any Connection to the Gallente Fashion Expert Charles Cambridge Schmidt ?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:42:22 ] Synthetic Cultist > Dinner will be Served in the Palace Dining Room.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:42:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > I was Outside to enjoy the Fresh Air and Sunshine, with my Daughter.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:43:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes.  he is the Cambridge.  The Amarrian influence comes from  Goldfinch "
    [ 2016.01.23 18:43:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The Finch of the pair."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:43:15 ] Synthetic Cultist > I See.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:43:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > I expect your Uniforms will be Quite Stylish.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:45:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I hope so"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:46:26 ] Synthetic Cultist > Shall we take a Tour of the Palace ?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:46:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes, that would be lovely"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:48:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > Excellent. Admiral, if you would Escort the Princess to her quarters, while I attend to my Guests.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:49:37 ] Orvan Arkaral > /emote bows "As you wish, Your Majesty". Zara giggles.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:49:44 ] Synthetic Cultist > Mummy will read you a Story later, Zara
    [ 2016.01.23 18:50:03 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote is getting that birdlike brightness about the eyes again*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:50:20 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote leads the group around the grounds, past the pond.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:50:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good bye Zara".  She gives a soft smile, then follows Synthia.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:50:47 ] Synthetic Cultist > Did you See the Ornamental Cuttlefish Pond ?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:51:06 ] Aria Jenneth > *enthusiastic nodnodnod*
    [ 2016.01.23 18:51:11 ] Synthetic Cultist > They are quite Intelligent. I Believe they can solve Simple Logic problems.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:51:15 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods "Yes"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:52:58 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote looks at the cuttlefish who observe Synthia in return.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:53:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They must be hard to fish for."  Lunarisse remarks, perhaps as a bit of a non sequitar.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:53:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > The Marine Environment contains a Great diversity of Interesting Creatures.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:53:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... some of their cousins will ... strike at an unbaited hook, though, I ... seem to remember from somewhere.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:53:54 ] Synthetic Cultist > I See.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:53:56 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote looks interested by the statement. "What sirt if logic problems are the capable of solving?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:55:28 ] Synthetic Cultist > The Marine Biologists at Kaztropolis Imperial University have said that they are able to recognise Shapes and Patterns.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:56:41 ] Synthetic Cultist > an Experimental Apparatus, containing a variety of Buttons with Symbols on them, and a Food dispenser mechanism, which activates when the Correct Button is pressed, appears to Demonstrate this.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:57:19 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Cuttlefish are presented with an Apparatus where the Dispenser has the symbol of a Red Circle on it. It activates if the Button with the Red Circle on it is pressed.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:57:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > There are a number of other buttons, with different Colours and Shapes.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:58:40 ] Kador Ouryon > "What interesting fish... to remember the hand... and mechanism which feeds them."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:58:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glaze slightly, but she gives a bland attentive smile, she hopes!
    [ 2016.01.23 18:58:48 ] Synthetic Cultist > After experiencing the Apparatus with the Red Circle, the cuttlefish are introduced to an Apparatus with a Blue Square.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:58:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *eyes glaze
    [ 2016.01.23 18:59:19 ] Synthetic Cultist > Then, they are introduced to an Apparatus with a Colour and Symbol that they have Never Before Seen.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:59:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > and they are Able to Correctly Determine the Button that activates the Food Dispenser.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That's interesting, Synthia."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:14 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:49 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote is watched by the cuttlefish as she leads the group onward, past the Amazing Maze
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:54 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote nodnods in agreement-- her eyes aren't remotely glazing, though*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:02:10 ] Synthetic Cultist > The Maze is quite Intricate.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:02:39 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Your Grace? Something ... Zara said ... that I was curious about.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:02:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I've seen many in the Formal gardens of the Empire."  She smiles. "It will be something once it grows to its full height"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:02:50 ] Synthetic Cultist > yes, Ms Jenneth ?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:04:05 ] Aria Jenneth > If it's not impertinent to ask ... she said you'd gotten lost. That ... seems like sort of a challenge, with the maze at this height. Do you have a reality filter installed that ... makes that possible?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:04:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... It seemed also likely you were just playing with her, but ...
    [ 2016.01.23 19:04:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:06:52 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. We were Playing in the Maze. When we reached the Centre, I erased my Memory of the Route through the Maze, and thus had to Work out the Correct route Out.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:07:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:07:53 ] Synthetic Cultist > I Questioned the Kaztropolis Weather Satellite for a high Resolution Map of the Area, and used nearby Landmarks to Orientate myself, to assist in exiting the Maze.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:07:58 ] Aria Jenneth > ... you ... have a lot of control over your ... own reality, Your Grace.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:08:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... more than I think most of us would ... dare to take on. It's ... really neat to see.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:08:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. I was attempting to teach Zara about logical Thinking.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:10:23 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Did she ... help in finding the way, Your Grace?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:10:24 ] Kador Ouryon > " A necessary lesson for nobility I am sure."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:10:44 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. She would Run Ahead to see if a Route was a Dead End.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:10:48 ] Synthetic Cultist > It was Fun.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:11:50 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *faint smile*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:13:34 ] Synthetic Cultist > I am Surprised how Energetic small Children Are.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:15:01 ] Kador Ouryon > "They can be a handful. Sat.... I mean to say a close friend of mine has cousins of that age. The can be quite the menace if left to their own devices and never seem to run out of energy."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:15:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles. "Having raised four children and now 12 grandkids... they are little bundle of energes"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:15:52 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods
    [ 2016.01.23 19:16:45 ] Synthetic Cultist > I now properly Understand the Concerns some of the parents in Kaztropolis had, following the Birthday Party I Organised for my Daughter.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:17:03 ] Thal Vadam > "Oh?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:17:15 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads quietly along, drinking in her surroundings like a surprisingly undestructive singularity.*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:17:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to follow Synthia, listening as they presumably go.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:17:52 ] Synthetic Cultist > There was a Statue of the Deceiver, made from Jelly, which Children were permitted to Attack with Spoons, until their Mother or Guardian decided they had Had Enough Jelly.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:19:01 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Jelly gave some Children a lot of Energy.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:19:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a smile "God that must have been such a mess."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:19:20 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote smirks "Heretical Jellies... eh?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:19:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote smiles
    [ 2016.01.23 19:20:13 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote indicates the chessboard, whose squares are easily large enough for a person, even one wearing a dress like Synthia's to stand within.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:20:54 ] Synthetic Cultist > I had this Chessboard Constructed, after Reading a historical Story about a Holder in Amarr who had such a Garden Feature.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:21:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I have heard of those."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:22:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you ever have games with it?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:23:03 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:23:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > The Holder in the Story used Udorians and Ealurians as the chess pieces, due to their different Skin tones.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:24:25 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Do you ... play by any special rules, yourself, Your Grace?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:24:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > Most of the Population of Kaztropol is of mixed Amarr or Udorian ancestry, which means elaborate Hats are Required to differentiate the Pieces.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:24:49 ] Synthetic Cultist > Special Rules ?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:25:23 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. Well, the hats count, Your Grace. ...
    [ 2016.01.23 19:25:34 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote perks up at the mention of his heritage. "The used Udorian's as pieces.... how interesting. Would you mind explaining that?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:25:51 ] Aria Jenneth > ... How do you ... um ... do you tell pieces apart?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:26:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Pieces have different Hats to distinguish both Colour, and Type of Piece.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:34:13 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Udorians played the Lighter coloured Pieces, while the Ealurians were the Darker pieces, as I understood the Story.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:34:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:36:03 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote leads the party into the palace. The entry hall has a number of sculptures. "The Dining Hall is this Way."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:36:32 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote follows Synthia into the palace. "I see. Thank you for explaining. It's not often I heard a great deal about the history of my people."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:36:33 ] Thal Vadam > /emote follows
    [ 2016.01.23 19:38:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > You are of Udorian ancestry ? I did not Realise.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:39:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows, glancing at the sculptures.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:40:09 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads along, watching and listening-- and trying to get a look at each sculpture from several angles*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:40:36 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote shows some of the sculptures in particular. "These are some of my own Works"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:41:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:43:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((any examples?))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:43:49 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote is definitely, definitely paying attention*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:46:56 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote points to one sculpture, a highly polished metallic pyramid. On one face is an all-seeing eye, on an opposite face is a different all-seeing eye(( http://i.imgur.com/0R7TKTS.png ))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:47:44 ] Synthetic Cultist > This is a Representation of God, in the form of a Dual-Natured Pyramid with an All-seeing Eye.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:47:58 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote looks at it curiously admiring the sharp and precise edges. "How did you sculpt this?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:48:07 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote cocks her head first one way, then the other*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:49:04 ] Synthetic Cultist > The seperate Faces were cast, then Laser-welded Together, then the whole was Polished.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:49:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says politely "How interesting"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:50:16 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote continued to admire the industrious approach to sculpting. He starts suddenly as Lunarisse speaks and turns away from the statue.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:50:59 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote points to another sculpture, a life-sized figure of a woman with a sword. (( http://i.imgur.com/cWcaEui.png ))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:51:13 ] Synthetic Cultist > This is a Replica of a Work I made for Lady Silas Vitalia.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:51:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches "I see. Did the Red Lady like it?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:51:44 ] Thal Vadam > /emote actually flares at hearing that name
    [ 2016.01.23 19:51:58 ] Synthetic Cultist > She was Most Impressed by the Statue.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:53:17 ] Aria Jenneth > .... *takes this in, as well*
    [ 2016.01.23 19:54:06 ] Synthetic Cultist > It is more of an Indoor Sculpture. Rainwater would risk causing Electrolytic Corrosion, due to the Different Metals used.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:54:54 ] Thal Vadam > /emote 's heart races with hatred
    [ 2016.01.23 19:54:59 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote indicates a third statue, a life-sized figure of a Caldari man, standing on the prone figure of a somewhat eagle-shaped bird (( http://i.imgur.com/zGjMnnt.png ))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:56:08 ] Synthetic Cultist > I call this sculpture, "Pieter Tuulinen Forwarding the Caldari State and Defeating the Gallente Menace"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:56:30 ] Kador Ouryon > "I recognised this one immeadiately. Quite stylish really."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:56:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "fascinating"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:58:45 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Angularity of the Pieter Figure represents the occasionally gruff nature of Caldari Culture, while the Relative Flatness of the Eagle represents the stereotypical Two-dimensional Superficiality of popular Gallente culture.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:00:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. Her face looks thoughtful.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:00:12 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* He's also nearly that craggy in person....
    [ 2016.01.23 20:02:39 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote indicates another sculpture, which is of a reclining bronze nude woman, atop a golden altar (( no picture, sorry )) "This sculpture is called 'Valerie Meets the Red God'. It is of my Friend and Corpmate."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:03:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote asks lightly "How often does she meet the Red God? Or this is... aspirational?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:04:24 ] Synthetic Cultist > I am not Sure. I have only seen her on the altar Once.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:05:50 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote continues onward. "I find Art useful in Interpreting the Universe"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:06:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Art is a window into many things, I agree". She follows.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:07:03 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote follows, her eyebrows taking turns being raised (left, right, left again) as she transparently mulls something over*

    Kaztropol - Dinner

    2016.01.23 20:08:34 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote is now at the door to the dining room. "This Way", she enters the room, which is large and well lit, with several tables. Synthia takes a seat at one end of a table, there are other seats with name cards,
    [ 2016.01.23 20:09:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows. She glances to see where her name card is.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:09:13 ] Synthetic Cultist > (( Lunarisse and Thal on one side, Aria and Kador on the other. U shape ))
    [ 2016.01.23 20:09:31 ] Thal Vadam > /emote takes his seat
    [ 2016.01.23 20:09:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes her seat. She sits erect, prim and proper.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:10:35 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote settles herself and starts inspecting the fixtures and furnishings (and place settings, and lighting, and ...).
    [ 2016.01.23 20:10:45 ] Synthetic Cultist > Did anyone Request a Vegetarian Option ?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:11:04 ] Aria Jenneth > *tiny shake of head*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:11:29 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote wanders to the other side of the table and takes his seat near to the ben in the U shaped table. Kador raises his hand as Synthia asks about vegetarian meals. "I did."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:11:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods
    [ 2016.01.23 20:11:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pauses, then the hell with being polite on this one point, says "As a reminder, i did ask that none of us be served blood, flesh or parts of humans or clones." She pauses "i trust this is not an issue?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:12:17 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:12:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > I Frown at such Literalists.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:13:00 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote nods emphatically in agreement with Lunarisse.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:13:12 ] Thal Vadam > "Are such things commonly consumed here...?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:13:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you, Your Grace"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:14:01 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote has a little hand bell at her seat, she picks it up and rings it, which goes ding-a-ling. A servant appears at the far end of the room, and walks up to Synthia. She says "you may begin Serving"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:14:36 ] Synthetic Cultist > Such things are Most Definitely Not consumed here.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:16:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote folds her hands. She looks attentively at the servant.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:17:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Queen Synthia while we wait.. may I ask a question about the Work that..well.. got us here?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:17:51 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote quietly waits, still as one of Synthia's statutes, keeping her hands folded and out of the way. Her eyes remain quite mobile, however.*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:18:04 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes, you may Ask.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:18:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Why did you choose to write a poem about Aldrith?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:18:57 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote ears abruptly perk up*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:19:59 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote chuckles remembering the poem.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:20:18 ] Synthetic Cultist > I have Interacted with Aldrith in the Intergalactic Summit several Times. He is quite a Memorable Person.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:20:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > I observed several comments from some people about his Hair and how Impressive it was.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:21:18 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote watches as the staff bring in the first course, a simple starter of slices of toasted bread, with goat cheese and smoked fish, and for the vegetarian option, finely sliced lightly roasted vegetables.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:21:26 ] Synthetic Cultist > I shall say Grace
    [ 2016.01.23 20:21:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Why did you choose him as a subject, however,.. over other Memorable persons?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:22:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > "Lord, we Thank you for the Food we are about to Eat, let it give us Sustenance to carry out your Will. Amen."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:23:06 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote fires a quick, worried glance at the Amarrians around her as Synthia brings up the dread topic of Religion ... then relaxes as the grace turns out to be nothing horrendously problematic.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:23:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote bows her head politely. She does not, however, say anything,.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:23:30 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote turns to Lunarisse. "I found it Easier to come up with Humorous Words in relation to Aldrith, than for other Persons."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:23:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gets a glint in her eye "Do you find him attractive?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:24:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote is served first, then the others. As per usual for Amarr formal meals, the Appropriate Cutlery is located on the far left and right of the plates.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:25:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote waits for her hostess to begin eating. It is rude for a guest to eat first.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:25:34 ] Synthetic Cultist > He is quite Handsome, I Think. Although I do not Know him particularly Well.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:26:01 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote inclines his head slightly as Synthia leads them in saying Grace. He mumbles a slight prayer of his own and return to the top at hand. Aldrith.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:26:06 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote slices a small piece of the bread with her knife, and lifts it with her fork.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:26:08 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote seems to either have done some research on these things or be following her Directrix's lead. Or both.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:26:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What kind of discourse have you had with him? I ask.. because the poem seemed to evidence some familiarity wich is what allowed it to be so humorous." She smiles and takes some bread.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:28:31 ] Synthetic Cultist > I have Conversed with Him a number of times about various Things, and observed other Persons comment on his Hair and other aspects of his Personality.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:29:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You did a lovely job turning that experience into humor"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:30:14 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote finishes her mouthful before replying "Thank you"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:31:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pecks at the vegetables. She glances briefly at the others at her table.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:32:06 ] Synthetic Cultist > I have been Practicing Humour
    [ 2016.01.23 20:32:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The best humor has a grain of truth or experience in it"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:32:44 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote , for her part, is eating as heartily as she can justify based on how much others are eating.*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:32:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "that's why your work was so funny."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:32:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods
    [ 2016.01.23 20:33:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I confess.. I never imagined you - what I understood to be an ai of some sort - could be the most humourous. My pardon, Your grace".
    [ 2016.01.23 20:34:02 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:35:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sadly, if Sir Shutaq was here, it would be illuminating..."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:35:29 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote thanks the servant as his meal is brought out, a steaming plate of colourful vegetables served on a bed of greens with a sweet fruited rice. Eyes sparkle at the mention of AI. "Being synthetic in nature does not hinder the development of cognitio...
    [ 2016.01.23 20:35:47 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote eats the rest of her starter, then places her cutlery on her plate.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:36:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I recall he immolated himself when he attended a function of the Red Lady's... " she trailsoff at Kador's comment
    [ 2016.01.23 20:36:24 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes
    [ 2016.01.23 20:36:39 ] Synthetic Cultist > I was also Present at the Incident. It was Most Unexpected.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:36:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she lowers her eyes*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:37:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to eat. "How old are you, Milady,if it is not rude to ask. Templar Ouryon's observation has me curious"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:38:54 ] Kador Ouryon > "Myself included. I have not met many synthetics before."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:39:14 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote lets the staff clear away the empty plates and cutlery, the next course will be served when everyone has finished their starters.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:40:22 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote takes a few more bits of his starter before allowing a servant to remove the plate.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:40:42 ] Synthetic Cultist > I am 4 Years and 4 Months Old, Dating from the Point at which I became Aare of Myself as a Person.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:40:50 ] Synthetic Cultist > *aware
    [ 2016.01.23 20:41:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "And your daugher is two?" She sounds surprised
    [ 2016.01.23 20:42:16 ] Synthetic Cultist > My daughter is 3 years and 5 Months Old.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:42:20 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote lifts her eyes, watching Synthia thoughtfully as she listens*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:42:39 ] Kador Ouryon > "And was born through a natural process?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:42:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:43:04 ] Kador Ouryon > "How incredible...."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:47:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I assume Kaztropol is older than you. How did you came about becoming.. Queen, Your grace?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:49:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote awaits the next course, which is roast chicken pieces, with roast vegetables, and cauliflower cheese, or for the vegetarian option, pasta parcels stuffed with chopped vegetables and mushrooms, with a spiced tomato sauce.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:50:55 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote stares at the meal before spearing the parcels ith his knife and fork and popping them into his mouth.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:51:12 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote also takes a glass of Amarr wine from the staff, who also offer other wines, as well as pressed fruit juice, mineral water, and sparkling fruit-flavoured drinks.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:51:54 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote turns to Lunarisse "I married the previous Ruler, and after Discussion with the Archbishop of Kaztropolis, declared myself Queen"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:52:43 ] Kador Ouryon > "Then the former ruler has passed? My condolences."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:52:51 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote accepts a sparkling drink. She doesn't avoid taking full advantage of the edibles, either.*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:53:07 ] Synthetic Cultist > No, he is still Alive, but I am Unsure where he has Disappeared to.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:53:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote e takes a pressed fruit juice. She also takes a selection of the chicken and vegetables.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:53:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Who was he?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:54:13 ] Synthetic Cultist > an Amarr capsuleer named Kazzzi. With Three Z's.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:55:23 ] Aria Jenneth > .... *cocks her head thoughtfully (again), munching*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:55:33 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote continues eating her meal.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:57:28 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote asks Kador "Are you enjoying the Meal ?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:58:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes another bite. Her eyes glaze as she looks something up. She begins to choke on her chicken.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:59:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Kazzzi.. was a former member of PIE eight years ago?"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:59:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > It would Appear So, Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:00:06 ] Kador Ouryon > "It is very pleasant, Your Grace... it's not often I am treated so such delicious food."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:00:15 ] Synthetic Cultist > Though I believe his Employment Record is best described as "Chequered"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:00:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. if I ever see him.. I'll let you know."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:01:31 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods.

    [ 2016.01.23 21:08:49 ] Synthetic Cultist > There are Biscuits and Cheese, or Fruit, to conclude the Meal with.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:09:01 ] Synthetic Cultist > But if you will Excuse Me, I have to Read a Story to my Daughter.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:09:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Fruit would be nice." she smiles.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:09:12 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote sits back from the second course having completely devoured the meal that had been laid out on his plate. "Whoever they are they'll get my thanks as well."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:09:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /slash: /emmote nods. "Of Course. Will you be back?"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:10:10 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote stands up. The servants would clear the plates and bring out the cheese, biscuits, and fruit, as well as refill any glasses.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:11:47 ] Aria Jenneth > ... thank you for ... your hospitality, Your Grace.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:13:36 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods "You are Welcome", before departing to tell a story to Zara.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:18:05 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote nibbles along a little, glancing around at her surroundings, the servants, and, eventually, her companions*
    [ 2016.01.23 21:18:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to eat her fruit. Her face is a carefully composed,polite mask.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:20:10 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote refuses a piece of fruit and asks the servant to bring him a glass of water instead. "What an intersting palace... certainly not what I was expecting."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:22:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply says "mMm"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:22:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Keep in mind most Sani Sabik are not like the Butcher. Their.. evil is more insidious."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:25:32 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote nods affirmatively. "It's very.... different here. It doesn't jump out at me like I thought it would."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:26:20 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote grumbles something unintelligible under his breath but turns to smile at the slave as they hand him his glass of water.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:27:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote finishes her fruit. She politely claspes her hands.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:28:20 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote quietly looks around at the surrounding attendants. She smiles, just a little, and mouths the words, "Thank you," though they go unvoiced.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:32:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote lets her eyes flicker around the room. She involuntarily looks at the walls and floors to see if any blood stains.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:36:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It does have a veneer of respectibility" she murmers.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:36:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am curious as to who made her, howeber."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:37:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I didn't realize she was so young"\
    [ 2016.01.23 21:38:29 ] Kador Ouryon > "As am I.... moreover what it must have been like to become self aware. I simply don't have enough opportunities to speak with these kind of .... entities."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:39:25 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't know ... what it would be like for an AI. There aren't a lot around; they're ... kind of hugely illegal.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:41:15 ] Kador Ouryon > "Certainly however that doesn't mean we can afford not to understand them."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:42:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "I'd prefer to see them continue to be restricted"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:43:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... understanding them requires contact. Contact involves a chance for ... well. Trouble. As far as our experiences with AI go, Her Grace is ... kind of a mild example.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:43:48 ] Aria Jenneth > ... compare to, say, rogue drone hives.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:44:42 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote shrugs.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:47:10 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I wonder ... what aspects of her are actually synthetic.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:47:31 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote returns
    [ 2016.01.23 21:47:47 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote falls silent with a smile*
    [ 2016.01.23 21:48:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you for the dinner, it was lovely."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:48:19 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote who was going to annouce his interest as well holds his tongue choking on a small mouthful of water.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:48:35 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods "I am Glad you Enjoyed it."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:09 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote mutely seconds her Directrix's statement*
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:25 ] Synthetic Cultist > my Daughter is safely Asleep now.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I hope the little one is asleep now?"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:59 ] Kador Ouryon > "Yes... I haven't been invited to a dinner so enjoyable in a long time. Thank you, Your Grace."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:51:21 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods at Lunarisse. "Do you know the book Series 'Paladin the Slaver Hound' ? I believe they are published in the Empire. It is about a Slaver hound, owned by a young Child. They have Adventures."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:52:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "I don't recall the specific title.. but it does sound like something I'd have seen"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:52:16 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote thinks he might vaguely remember something similar. He nods politely.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:53:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is that what you read?"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:55:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. They are enjoyable Stories.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:57:24 ] Kador Ouryon > "Perhaps you should also consider reading the 'Made So' stories to Zara. She might enjoy them if she liked the stories about Paladin."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:57:48 ] Synthetic Cultist > I Shall.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:58:22 ] Synthetic Cultist > Did you Intend to Return Today ? Or will you be Staying overnight ?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:58:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Unfortunately, we all have many duties and responsibilities."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:58:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We intended to return today."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:59:24 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:59:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "is there anything else you hoped to show us?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:00:28 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote perks up a little at that (though she's showing suppressed signs of incipient food coma)*
    [ 2016.01.23 22:01:56 ] Synthetic Cultist > I am not Sure. Is there something you would Like to See ?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:04:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances slightly at Aria and Kador, then looks at Syntia "If it wasn't too much trouble.. perhaps we could see this wonderful museum you mentioned on the way out."
    [ 2016.01.23 22:04:54 ] Synthetic Cultist > The Museum of Natural History ?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:04:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > (the Lord Admiral mentioned) "A Natural History Museum, yes"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:04:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *definitely perking up*
    [ 2016.01.23 22:06:00 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote smiles "Yes. I shall Drive you there Myself"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:06:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises. "Wonderful"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:07:37 ] Kador Ouryon > "I'd very much enjoy that... there were a few exhibits in particular the Lord Admiral mentioned were integral to Kaztropol's history."
    [ 2016.01.23 22:08:01 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote says "If you shall follow Me"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:08:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:08:32 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote does as bid*
    [ 2016.01.23 22:09:20 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote quite eagerly follows the party.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:10:39 ] Thal Vadam > /emote follows

    Kaztropol - Museum of Natural History

    2016.01.23 22:11:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote leads the party through the palace to a garage, containing several vehicles. A technician looks surprised to see the Queen. Synthia smiles at her, and selects one of the vehicles, getting into the drivers seat.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:12:42 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote whistles as he looks around the garage noting the array of vehicles and tools. "Now isn't that something. I could get lost in a workshop like this."
    [ 2016.01.23 22:12:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters and gets in the front opposite the driver. She looks a little nonplussed.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:13:15 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote slips in behind Luna*
    [ 2016.01.23 22:13:51 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote lagging behind follows suit as he stops for half a second to ask the mechanic something about his current duties then slides into the back of the vehicle.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:14:51 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote checks to see if everyone is aboard.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:15:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes everyone is aboard.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:18:24 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote reverses the car out of the garage, and does a neat three point turn, before proceeding out of the palace grounds and into the streets. Synthia drives quite quickly but smoothly
    [ 2016.01.23 22:19:22 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. Your Grace? If ... I may ask ...
    [ 2016.01.23 22:19:43 ] Aria Jenneth > Are there a lot of settlements on Kaztropol?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:19:51 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote says "Yes ?" while weaving between slower traffic.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:20:15 ] Synthetic Cultist > There are several Towns outside Kaztropolis, and the native People villages.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:21:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... hm. So there's ... a lot of wilderness?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:22:02 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote sees the Museum ahead "Yes. There are large Areas of wilderness, with a Variety of Biomes"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:22:52 ] Aria Jenneth > *thoughtful nod*
    [ 2016.01.23 22:23:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Do you have beaches or seaside towns?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:23:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote parks the vehicle up. "Yes, there are some Seaside towns"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:24:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Lovely. I hope people can swim on the beaches or .. is the sea wildlife equally enlarged like the wombats?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:25:36 ] Synthetic Cultist > The Sea life is mostly Benign.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:26:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote leads the party out of the vehicle, into the Museum
    [ 2016.01.23 22:27:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:27:56 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote clambers out of the vehicle and studies the museum intently.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:27:59 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads along behind, peering around happily
    [ 2016.01.23 22:29:34 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote shows the group the first exhibition, which is about the various large land creatures found on Kaztropol.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:31:02 ] Aria Jenneth > ... this is a wombat?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:31:12 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote stops at a large skeleton of a wombat. "Yes."
    [ 2016.01.23 22:32:15 ] Synthetic Cultist > This particular Skeleton was found last Year. It is the Largest known, and stands about 3 metres tall at the Shoulder. No living Examples have been Observed.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:32:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ...? *examines the skeleton of the rodent-like marsupial*
    [ 2016.01.23 22:32:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote muses "This creeature would be scary to run into in the wild"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:33:12 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote looks up at the wombat skeleton in awe wondering how such a creature could grow in kaztropol
    [ 2016.01.23 22:36:27 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. We are Unsure if the Species is still Extant.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:36:29 ] Kador Ouryon > "besides these and the ants are there any other species of note to be found in the region?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:37:35 ] Synthetic Cultist > There are numerous Bird species, and several Reptiles
    [ 2016.01.23 22:38:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Lovely. Are any birds capable of domestication?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:39:09 ] Synthetic Cultist > some smaller birds are kept as Pets
    [ 2016.01.23 22:40:11 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Larger species are more Aggressive.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:40:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "Do you know where I could get one on the way to the spaceport?" She looks at Synthia "I can always use some new birds for my gardens'
    [ 2016.01.23 22:40:42 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote shows a holo display of a large ground bird encountering and chasing a camera crew.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:40:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:40:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Err....."
    [ 2016.01.23 22:41:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says forcefully "nevermind".
    [ 2016.01.23 22:41:28 ] Aria Jenneth > ....
    [ 2016.01.23 22:41:37 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote chuckles at the footage.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:42:05 ] Kador Ouryon > "So nothing like the Wombats.... but not quite delicate enough for true domestication."
    [ 2016.01.23 22:42:38 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods
    [ 2016.01.23 22:44:42 ] Synthetic Cultist > Many animal Species are difficult to Observe.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:45:18 ] Synthetic Cultist > Forest creatures are not generally Visible from the Air, as an Example.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:46:07 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote shows the group to another exhibit, which is about the sea life that has been observed.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:46:25 ] Aria Jenneth > ... so you'd need infrared ... or something like that.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:47:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances with interest.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:47:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:47:42 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote takes time to look around the exhibit then return to the Queen. "You mentioned the sea life was benign for the most part.... what sorts of species have youdiscovered?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:49:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... if the sea life is benign, and the ... terrestrial life's a problem ... which it kind of sounds like it is ... might sea and island colonies be a viable way to expand?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:49:32 ] Synthetic Cultist > There are Fish of all Sizes, from a few millimetres to several Metres in Length, as well as numerous Types of Crustacean, as well as Cephalopods.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:49:55 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes, that is Possible.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:50:20 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote shudders at the concept of beaches for miles on end.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:51:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you think.. well... that this life is native to here or... was it ever prepared for people and things to live?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:51:40 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:53:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > Through discussion with the Native People, and their Legends, it appears that this World was Prepared for colonisation several Thousand years Ago.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:54:45 ] Aria Jenneth > ... so ... terraformed by the Ancients ... then cut off ...
    [ 2016.01.23 22:55:27 ] Synthetic Cultist > It is Unclear, if it was the Ancients, or an Intermediate civilisation of Unknown Origin.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:57:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... unless someone placed the macrofauna on purpose ... wouldn't that imply a longer timeframe, Your Grace?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:59:37 ] Synthetic Cultist > It is Possible that the Planet was made Habitable by one Group, but that the Large Animals are a more Recent Addition from another Source.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:01:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:01:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I appreciate you showing us. this it is an amazing place."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:01:25 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:01:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > Many of the Deep Sea creatures remain Unknown.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:02:23 ] Synthetic Cultist > for example, Fishing vessels occasionally Bring up Teeth that do not Match known Species.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:02:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnod*
    [ 2016.01.23 23:02:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How interesing. Perhaps there are some deep phelagic creatures"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:03:24 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:05:04 ] Synthetic Cultist > I find some Sea Creatures particularly Fascinating for some Reason.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:05:17 ] Synthetic Cultist > Lobsters and Cuttlefish.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:06:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh, like at Anslo's beach?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:06:31 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes
    [ 2016.01.23 23:06:32 ] Kador Ouryon > "He has a beach?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:06:41 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote looks mortified.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:06:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "He used to"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:06:58 ] Synthetic Cultist > I constructed a Lobster-shaped Drone with which to Observe and Interact with the Lobsters I observed there.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:07:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "People stopped going because of rumors of lobsters" She glances at Synthia.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:08:30 ] Kador Ouryon > "I....er....see."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:08:37 ] Aria Jenneth > ...?
    [ 2016.01.23 23:08:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs "Long story, Let's not get off track" She gives a bright smiole.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:08:59 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Are lobsters ... really a worry?
    [ 2016.01.23 23:11:18 ] Synthetic Cultist > No.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:11:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "People don;t like their toes being pinched.. or removed by big ones."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:11:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stares at Synthia.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:12:16 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote decides he'd rather not know and continues looking at the exibits
    [ 2016.01.23 23:12:45 ] Aria Jenneth > ... oh.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Your Grace.. I am sure there is so much to see. I regret to say I think we need to be leaving to catch our Interbus Shuttle."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can you take us back to the Spaceport or arrange for a ride?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:20 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote nods "I understand"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:22 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:39 ] Aria Jenneth > Thank you for ... showing us this place, Your Grace.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:45 ] Synthetic Cultist > Perhaps you would Like to visit again Later ?
    [ 2016.01.23 23:16:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says politely "Perhaps"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:17:12 ] Aria Jenneth > Circumstances ... permitting. *wan smile* Thank you, Your Grace.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:18:25 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote leads the group out to the vehicle
    [ 2016.01.23 23:18:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows. ((one can assume Thal is quietly with us, but her had to go))
    [ 2016.01.23 23:19:18 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote gets into the driver's seat again.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:20:08 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote slips into the back, once again*
    [ 2016.01.23 23:20:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You drive well." She quirks a smile"Where I grew up you had to be 16"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:20:25 ] Kador Ouryon > "It has been a pleasure to see Kaztropol. Your kingdom is..... unlike any place I've been. It has been enlightening "
    [ 2016.01.23 23:20:43 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote smiles "As Queen, technically I do not Require a Driving Licence"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:20:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles wyly. She is buckled and ready t go.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:22:08 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote grimaces as something horrific occurs to him. "Your Grace.... did you write Kaztropol's traffic laws yourself?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:22:17 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote turns the vehicle around and begins driving to the spaceport.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:22:25 ] Synthetic Cultist > No.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:22:46 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote breaths a sigh of releif
    [ 2016.01.23 23:23:35 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote points out a few buildings of interest as they pass, such as the spires of Kaztropolis Imperial University
    [ 2016.01.23 23:24:34 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote accelerates once outside the city limits.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:26:28 ] Synthetic Cultist > This Car is slightly Faster than the Monorail at top speed. We shall arrive at the Spaceport in a few minutes
    [ 2016.01.23 23:27:24 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote adjusts something on the car and accelerates.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:28:09 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... *watches the scenery zing by*
    [ 2016.01.23 23:28:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches slightly. Her hands gripped tightly on the door.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:29:55 ] Aria Jenneth > *her eyes are a bit wide*
    [ 2016.01.23 23:29:59 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote zips past a sign saying "Blind Summit", the car remaining firmly stuck to the ground, despite a momentary sense of reduced gravity at the summit.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:31:00 ] Synthetic Cultist > Do you Drive much when on Planet yourself ?
    [ 2016.01.23 23:31:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "Your Grace, does your car scan for traffic coming the other way?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:31:28 ] Synthetic Cultist > No. I do, though.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:31:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Not really. I tend to use foot or public transit." She smiles wryly "I am not a Holder."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:31:46 ] Synthetic Cultist > I currently have a Link to an aerial Surveillance drone.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:32:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And most places I go.. are.. well stuff is close."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:32:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks a litle relieved after Synthia's remartk.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:36:22 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote makes the car do a quick left-right to avoid some kind of animal running across the road.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:37:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says glibly "A little fast for a superlarge wombat I think?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:37:07 ] Aria Jenneth > *manages to mostly suppress her "EEP"*
    [ 2016.01.23 23:37:42 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote braces himself against the arm rest.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:37:45 ] Synthetic Cultist > Yes. I did not clearly Observe the Animal.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:38:57 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote points out the lights of the spaceport. "Here we are. We shall Arrive momentarily"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:39:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles brightly.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:40:58 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote slows the vehicle to turn into the spaceport complex, and pulls up outside the passenger terminal. "We have Arrived."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:41:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says offhandedly as she unbuckles "I notice you also have the titles of Inquisitor. I assume besides Queen with temporal power, you have spiritual as well?"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:43:39 ] Synthetic Cultist > I ask Questions.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:44:10 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote slips out of her seat, likewise. Once out of the car, she bows, very formally and politely, to the driver*
    [ 2016.01.23 23:44:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:45:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Next Time, I'd be please to answer questions of yours. " She smiles wryly "I Notice we seemed to be a little one-sided there. Thank you for humoring us."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:45:46 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote gets shakily out of the car and bows politely. "Many thanks...."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:45:49 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote smiles
    [ 2016.01.23 23:47:33 ] Synthetic Cultist > the Archbishop of Kaztropolis is the Spiritual Authority on Kaztropol.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:47:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I see."
    [ 2016.01.23 23:50:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you again for the dinner;. I hope you found the conversation congenial"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:50:52 ] Aria Jenneth > It was ... lovely getting to see your domain.... Thank you ... for everything, Your Grace.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:51:05 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote shows the party to a waiting shuttle which will link up with the Interbus network. "I am pleased to have been your Hostess"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:51:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtsies. She prepares to embark with the others.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:52:32 ] Aria Jenneth > /emotee bows once more, and embarks.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:52:55 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote bows as well and clambers onto the shuttle.
    [ 2016.01.23 23:54:05 ] Synthetic Cultist > /emote waves "Pleasant Journey"
    [ 2016.01.23 23:54:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters the shuttle, with an acknowdeging flance.

    [ 2016.01.23 17:27:02 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'd really rather not be the copy of me that's still alive in these people's hands.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:27:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Templar Vadam has a pin-point antimatter bomb. If something goes wrong and we can be extracyed.. well there will be nothing of us left"

    [ 2016.01.23 17:28:43 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote generates a certain amount of neural static at the mention of the bomb.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:28:53 ] Aria Jenneth > Oh, good. I'd so much rather be a cloud of exotic plasma than just a corpse. *deadpan*
    [ 2016.01.23 17:29:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They can't clone dna from a cloud of plasma, Ms. Jenneth"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:30:00 ] Aria Jenneth > Mm.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:30:10 ] Aria Jenneth > ... true, I guess.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:30:55 ] Kador Ouryon > I suppose even if the bomb itself does not go off it would at least make for a good distraction.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:31:40 ] Thal Vadam > "I'm sure they'd let us go...if they learned I had it"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:33:47 ] Thal Vadam > "Ugh...this place is everything I hate about Empyreans AND Sani..."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:33:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Quirky as she is.. I do expect Queen Synthia to keep her word."
    [ 2016.01.23 17:34:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... agreed, Directrix. I'm still really glad we have contingency plans.

    [ 2016.01.23 17:40:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Remind me never to picnic here"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:40:54 ] Kador Ouryon > It's only the small wombats you need to watch out for Lunarisse.

    [ 2016.01.23 17:47:07 ] Kador Ouryon > I swear I've seen it or something very like it before

    [ 2016.01.23 17:52:27 ] Aria Jenneth > ... you don't suppose we could ship one of those antimatter pinpoints to Nauplius in a container labeled ... um. As some kind of Sebiestor-blood ointment?
    [ 2016.01.23 17:52:47 ] Thal Vadam > "...smart idea"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:53:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "He still has clones" *sourly*

    [ 2016.01.23 17:53:40 ] Kador Ouryon > I'm suprised security hasn't conducted some kind of scan... it's not like you can conceal an anti-matter explosive particularly well.
    [ 2016.01.23 17:53:51 ] Thal Vadam > "And Luna...I need your help sometime"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:55:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "of course"
    [ 2016.01.23 17:58:28 ] Thal Vadam > "With some Blooder prisoners I rescued..."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:01:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches. "Of course..."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:01:38 ] Aria Jenneth > Oh, no ... um. I mean, it's good that you rescued them....
    [ 2016.01.23 18:02:14 ] Thal Vadam > "They were prisoners OF Blooders I mean"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:03:22 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. I think we ... got that, Thal. We've just been seeing kind of a lot of ... former prisoners of the Sani, lately. What ... do you need help with?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:04:02 ] Thal Vadam > "Oh...well...I understand. I'll figure it out myself"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:04:17 ] Aria Jenneth > No! Nononono-- not what I meant....
    [ 2016.01.23 18:05:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We would be more than willing to assist, Templar."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:05:16 ] Kador Ouryon > Focus.... people. We need to make a good first impression with the Queen.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:05:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... okay ...
    [ 2016.01.23 18:13:08 ] Kador Ouryon > She seems the picture of nobilty so far...
    [ 2016.01.23 18:14:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > i wonder who the father is?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:14:17 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. I think that's the point, Mr. Ouryon. You can hear the Exaggerated Way she Speaks ...
    [ 2016.01.23 18:14:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Or if she is synthetic too
    [ 2016.01.23 18:16:27 ] Kador Ouryon > We'll find out I suppose
    [ 2016.01.23 18:17:09 ] Aria Jenneth > Well-- we already are. She plays the role to the hilt. The eccentricities are probably mostly in ... well, what she does with her authority.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:17:12 ] Aria Jenneth > Dairy farms.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:17:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... for example.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:17:58 ] Kador Ouryon > Don't forget warring with Ants.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:18:34 ] Aria Jenneth > Well, no one likes having their house eaten. I doubt she's an especially cruel person, just ... the sense I'm getting from her so far is whimsy. Unrestrained whimsy.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:19:08 ] Thal Vadam > "dangerous..."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:20:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. And her aristocratic front probably goes exactly as far as she's willing to let it. Which might be a long way, or there might be a cliff somewhere around here buried under the veneer. So ... um.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:20:38 ] Aria Jenneth > It would probably be a good idea not to test her dedication to hospitality.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:21:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Queen Synthia got lost in a 2 foot high maze?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:22:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... depending on her implants and so on, she may have her perceptions adjusted to make it appear higher.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:22:33 ] Kador Ouryon > I suspect it was for the benefit of her daughter
    [ 2016.01.23 18:22:34 ] Aria Jenneth > Or, she might be playing at getting lost to amuse the child.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:22:45 ] Kador Ouryon > Perhaps as you say she plays the role to the hilt
    [ 2016.01.23 18:23:03 ] Aria Jenneth > Usually, I'd be sure it was just a game played with Zara. Here, though ...
    [ 2016.01.23 18:23:26 ] Aria Jenneth > ... maybe ... 60/40?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:24:06 ] Kador Ouryon > So the Queen really is synthetic. I wonder whom created her.... I'd have a great many questions for them.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:25:36 ] Aria Jenneth > Probably other Sani. If you put a lot of weight on purity ... well, you can be pretty sure of water's purity if you distill it yourself.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:26:20 ] Thal Vadam > "...I'm glassing this palace one day"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:26:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... nursing. She got the idea from nursing Zara.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:26:49 ] Thal Vadam > "This is...hideous"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:28:03 ] Kador Ouryon > I merely find myself wondering how she functions. Biologically or mechanically... in what ratio.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:28:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well, if it's specifically for children ... wet nurses are an ancient tradition.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:28:54 ] Aria Jenneth > If she's making yoghurt, though ... um.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ....
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Barbaric
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:18 ] Aria Jenneth > ... so she's sort of pooling the whole civilization's lactation to ... efficiently feed children.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Whether the women like it or not.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:31 ] Thal Vadam > "She's a monster..."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:31 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I wonder whether it really stops there, though.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Men wear clothes, women do not."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "women are forced to breast feed."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:35:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is this really a matriarchy or was she programmed by men?"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:36:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote snorts.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:36:45 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. The ... "bells" thing really doesn't explain why the costume, such as it is, is bells and ... nothing much else.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:37:45 ] Kador Ouryon > Well the heat would make anyone uncomfortable is they weren't already used to it... still it is odd.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:38:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... a "designated lactator" costume doesn't really demand nudity. Really, even if such a thing is considered acceptable ... wouldn't a special ID card or something be enough?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:39:26 ] Kador Ouryon > You'd think so... unless the fashion were started or mandated by the Queen herself.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:41:11 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Directrix? A ... question, very respectfully, because I think it might upset you a little....
    [ 2016.01.23 18:41:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > mMm?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:42:04 ] Aria Jenneth > ... About ... involuntary lactation ... are Amarrian slaves never made to work as wet nurses?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:42:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes. But a citizen would never be."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:43:04 ] Aria Jenneth > Oh. So ... it's just the treatment of the citizens that's ... offensive?
    [ 2016.01.23 18:43:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "A wet nurse is among the most privileged of house slaves. They are allowed to live in the home. Have all the comforts of the rest of the house and spend much time with the children. They consider it an Honor."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:44:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They certainly are not wandering around naked as the day they were born"
    [ 2016.01.23 18:44:22 ] Aria Jenneth > Hm.... I wonder whether the Matari think of it the same way.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:44:28 ] Aria Jenneth > ... thank you, Directrix.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:44:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Many did not go.. you know."
    [ 2016.01.23 18:44:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "After the Empress's decree." She nods at Aria's thank you.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:45:18 ] Kador Ouryon > I doubt they would feel the same way... that said there are many disagreement between us and them.
    [ 2016.01.23 18:58:19 ] Kador Ouryon > I opened some kind of box asking about these cuttlefish....
    [ 2016.01.23 18:58:40 ] Aria Jenneth > They are neat, though!
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ....
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:18 ] Kador Ouryon > I suppose they are...
    [ 2016.01.23 19:00:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I used to say 'that's interesting to my children a lot."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:01:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She.. definitely is fascinated by them."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:01:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'It's almost binary what she was explaining 0's and 1's..."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:04:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know I am guilty of the same thing. but let's be careful what we ask"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:05:20 ] Kador Ouryon > Maria is starting to make more and more sense to me now.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:05:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Maria?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:06:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She is nothing like Synthia. Nothing!"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:06:35 ] Kador Ouryon > I meant from your comments. Not the queen.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:07:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Oh?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:07:14 ] Aria Jenneth > Ha! I knew it.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:08:14 ] Kador Ouryon > For an authentic pschological and emotional reaction.... you were right. Playing the role almost too well.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:12:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((did you mean synthia not maria?))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:12:56 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm starting to ... maybe understand why the Sani would have created something like Synthia.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:13:38 ] Kador Ouryon > ((I meant Maria. I have this image in my head of her. "Mom I can become a capsuleer with the best grades ever!" Luna: 'That's interesting dear." Maria: "Damn gotta step my game up."))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:14:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((rofl. yep! Spot on))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:14:39 ] Aria Jenneth > She can adjust her perceptions and memory at will-- and sees no reason not to, as long as it's for a constructive purpose. It's the sort of existence some Sani might imagine a divine being as having.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:15:42 ] Kador Ouryon > ((#MariaOP))
    [ 2016.01.23 19:19:54 ] Aria Jenneth > It's interesting, though ... this is actually a lot more humble than I was expecting from a Sani Sabik planetary overlord.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:20:27 ] Aria Jenneth > Compared to even PIE's headquarters, it's ... well. Almost rustic. Maybe without the almost.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:21:09 ] Aria Jenneth > Really oddly humble.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:22:00 ] Kador Ouryon > Head Quarters?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:22:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes. It's more like.. well a minor planetary holder"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:23:01 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Maybe it wasn't strictly HQ? Their facilities at the Amarr Emperor Family station.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:23:40 ] Kador Ouryon > Ah... I see.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:24:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. that's the Central Station for an Empire of trillions"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:24:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd expect offices in it to be a bit.. well"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:24:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The Society can't even dream of renting there"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:26:46 ] Aria Jenneth > The hack writer version of this game has the "pieces" getting executed if they're captured.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:27:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't really expect her to play with a wasteful rule like that, though.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:27:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I suspect most wouldn't. I pray that is so."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:27:43 ] Aria Jenneth > That's a rule for a game between Natalei and Nauplius, maybe.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:29:21 ] Aria Jenneth > Directrix? One ... thing I'm a little unclear on. Other than educating me and horrifying you-- what are we here for, exactly?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:30:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Dinner"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:30:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. don't think Queen Synthia gets many outside guests"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:30:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So I suspect she wishes to..well.. show off a bit"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:30:55 ] Aria Jenneth > Usually ... isn't there a compelling reason to sit down to dinner with someone we'd normally shoot?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:31:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My Word."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:31:09 ] Aria Jenneth > ... oh.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:31:15 ] Kador Ouryon > Neither and I dread to think what she considers acceptible to serve.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:31:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I promised to take to dinner whoever in the writing contest made me laugh. I always read the pieces before I read the names.."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:31:59 ] Aria Jenneth > Oh. OH. Hee.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:08 ] Kador Ouryon > You laughing now you've seen this place?
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Here I was hoping some cute guy might write something. But no, the men all wrote grim dark poems or treatises about economics or articles on self-flaggelation"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says sourly.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So she won the prize, and I am honor bound to meet her at a Candlelit Dinner at a place of her choice"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:44 ] Kador Ouryon > Others were on leave in foreign Empires...
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Which was here..."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:32:59 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. Thank you, Directrix. All's explained.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:33:46 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and ... if it's not impertinent to say ... I really like your integrity.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:34:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exhales. "Thank you. This one.. was one that was hard to keep"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:35:16 ] Kador Ouryon > Aria may I ask what it is you are hoping to learn from this place? It seems like you are almost studying it as we go.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:35:54 ] Aria Jenneth > Well ... Sojourn: Sani Sabik is probably never going to happen, for a bunch of reasons that should probably be ... ah, really obvious by now.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:36:08 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. If you don't already know, I'm sort of a travel writer.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:36:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... basically, this is probably the closest to them I'm ever going to come without being a prisoner, so ...
    [ 2016.01.23 19:37:51 ] Kador Ouryon > So your study is anthropological in nature? Participant Observation as I understand still remains the most effective means of gleaning insight into a foreign culture.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:37:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. Definitely studying it. And them.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:38:34 ] Aria Jenneth > Yep. But ... see, most people aren't likely to carve my heart out and let me look at it while I die, just because I'm not really one of them.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:39:27 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm a guest with SFRIM; a visiting scholar, not an Amarrian by blood or faith. So's Velarra; it's why we carry the title we do.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:39:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:39:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Correct"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:41:16 ] Aria Jenneth > The Amarr are ... willing to do that for us. Even though I also think I'm a little bit of a long-term project.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:41:28 ] Kador Ouryon > Then why do you feel the need to be constrained by Amarrian social conventions? Is that merely part of your observations for your writing, I feel most Amarr would accept your status as a guest and respect that.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:41:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "when one is guest one tries to respect the mores of the host"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:42:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote grits her teeth "Like i am trying now"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:42:33 ] Aria Jenneth > Yes. Aside from courtesy, it's partly a matter of access. You learn more by conforming to convention than by bumping up against it.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:42:49 ] Kador Ouryon > Understandable and for the continued preservation of our safety I sincerely hope we can all keep out negative thoughts to ourselves.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:46:57 ] Aria Jenneth > So ... anyhow, yeah. This is a more or less guaranteed chance to observe the Sani without risking my blood or having them actively try to convert me-- a project I have no reason to think they'd be restrained about.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:51:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > it is a grave sin to even speak the Red Lady's name.
    [ 2016.01.23 19:52:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She was stricken from the Book of Records for her treason"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:52:42 ] Thal Vadam > "permission to speak freely?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:56:37 ] Thal Vadam > "I hate this place...I hate it with more passion then I hate almost anything else...I'm tempted to use this damn bomb to purify this place"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:56:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Not today."
    [ 2016.01.23 19:57:18 ] Thal Vadam > "Can we bloody come back tomorrow?"
    [ 2016.01.23 19:59:31 ] Thal Vadam > "I don't even know this "Red Lady"...But I know a black hearted heretic when I see one"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:04:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I ... think she's a lot of the reason some Amarr didn't trust Sinjin Mokk at first. Or maybe still.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:07:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Yes. However as I understand it.. the Red Lady betrayed him when she committed treason, not that he followed her."
    [ 2016.01.23 20:08:20 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnod*
    [ 2016.01.23 20:08:46 ] Kador Ouryon > Perhaps I should look into these indivuals at some point. I'm unfamiliar with him... probably before my time.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:09:12 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. And Thal? I think as Sani lairs go, this one is ... maybe ... really, really mild.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:14:27 ] Kador Ouryon > Seems like it.... or it's just very well hidden.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:14:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Oh When this is all done..
    [ 2016.01.23 20:14:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > remind me to mail you a video Valerie Valate sent me
    [ 2016.01.23 20:14:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Not now.. I don't need Thal exploding premature.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:15:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *prematurely
    [ 2016.01.23 20:16:20 ] Kador Ouryon > I can control myself if you have the video file.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:24:11 ] Aria Jenneth > Let's wait?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:24:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "yes"
    [ 2016.01.23 20:24:18 ] Aria Jenneth > I'd like to be sure to remember all this.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:24:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and not ... you know. Be in particles.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:27:53 ] Kador Ouryon > It's not often that I am genuinely thankful for the way I change clones.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:44:28 ] Aria Jenneth > ... she came into the world full-grown ... with a head full of knowledge she'd never learned ...
    [ 2016.01.23 20:45:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > that perhaps explains.. her quirk reasoning
    [ 2016.01.23 20:45:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > She is basically a toddler
    [ 2016.01.23 20:45:48 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... like me. I guess.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:46:14 ] Kador Ouryon > Perhaps it does.... however the concept of existing and the suddenly realising the nature of your existance without time to acclimate to the world around you is beyond my ability to imagine.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:47:25 ] Aria Jenneth > I do ... really wonder ... who created her. It might say a lot ... about what sorts of assumptions are built into her.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:48:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote mods.
    [ 2016.01.23 20:48:15 ] Aria Jenneth > Is she ... Sani Sabik the way I'm Achura? As sort of a habit ... she has no reason to break?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:48:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... a legacy left by whoever ... was responsible for assembling her knowledge and beliefs?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:49:23 ] Kador Ouryon > Interesting point.... what was she originally before she became self aware.... I supposed she might be. Not wholly aware of the gravity of calling yourself Sani Sabik due to not having grown up with an existing culture.... or perhaps Sanism that
    [ 2016.01.23 20:49:33 ] Kador Ouryon > culture he has grown to know all her life
    [ 2016.01.23 20:55:24 ] Aria Jenneth > Kazzzi. I've heard that name. Where?
    [ 2016.01.23 20:57:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Kazzzi
    [ 2016.01.23 20:57:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > How curious
    [ 2016.01.23 20:58:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Templars..
    [ 2016.01.23 20:58:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > he was a member of pIE in 2008
    [ 2016.01.23 21:01:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > He has been set Red to the Society.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:06:38 ] Kador Ouryon > He still operates?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:07:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will investigate."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:13:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Last reported in space activity June 2014"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:14:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'An extremely prolific IGS poster up to that time"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:14:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No doubt that is why Ms. Jenneth remembers him'
    [ 2016.01.23 21:15:50 ] Kador Ouryon > I think we survived dinner without any fire fights
    [ 2016.01.23 21:15:57 ] Aria Jenneth > Actually, I think someone mentioned him in ... the context of Amarr in the TLF? Or something?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:17:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Possible. Oneof his corporations was in U'K when he was in it"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:17:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So he'd have been in the TLF"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:18:39 ] Aria Jenneth > That sounds right.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:19:51 ] Aria Jenneth > Directrix? ... um. I may not have ... said this before, so ...
    [ 2016.01.23 21:20:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... thank you, for trusting me like this.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:20:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Your welcome."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:21:12 ] Aria Jenneth > There wasn't any absolute guarantee that I wouldn't see something that ... would make the Sani all of a sudden ... a real object of interest for further study.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:21:27 ] Kador Ouryon > "And treating me to dinner... on a security op that I didn't even have to draw my weapon on."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:21:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well..let's make sure that's all."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:22:47 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. I think this place is much more ... troublesome ... to Amarr than to outsiders, but ... there's still something ...
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ah I spoke that aloud."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My point though
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'Is behind the quirky robot... there is some awful stuff that happens here."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She does seem to have the sense to keep it behind closed doors"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:53 ] Aria Jenneth > ... the people here are so ... completely subject to the whims of the powerful. So, that's not surprising at all.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:23:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:24:42 ] Aria Jenneth > It's a little bit the case in Amarr, too, but ... at least there it's sort of an approved list of whims ... or something ... I guess.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:24:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > mMm.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:25:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > it's called a concept of Sin. For the Sani Sabik being powerful is the only justification needed.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:25:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > A sense of right and wrong can handcuff even the most powerful Holder.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:26:04 ] Aria Jenneth > The Queen seems to be at least arguably quasi-benevolent. Except, however, when she isn't. So ... yeah. I guess ... she's only restrained by her own sensibilities.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:27:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Given her immaturity and.. uimm.. AI.. odd things sometimes seem to be computed"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:28:01 ] Kador Ouryon > That immaturity and the more reserved nature of her beliefs in our presence is disturbing.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:29:22 ] Aria Jenneth > Directrix? Um ... I'm a little unclear on this: have we been excused?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:30:19 ] Kador Ouryon > As am I.... leaving without speaking the queen seems rude and dangerous as who knows what would set her off.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:30:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No. I think she is tending to her daughter."
    [ 2016.01.23 21:30:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It'd.. be rude if we left without a formal farewell, i think"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:30:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nodnod*
    [ 2016.01.23 21:30:52 ] Kador Ouryon > Waiting it is then
    [ 2016.01.23 21:31:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > You've been quiet Templar Vadam
    [ 2016.01.23 21:32:02 ] Kador Ouryon > ((He's legitamately gone as in the RP as too long for him))
    [ 2016.01.23 21:32:10 ] Kador Ouryon > ((I think....))
    [ 2016.01.23 21:32:20 ] Thal Vadam > (( Still here! ))
    [ 2016.01.23 21:32:44 ] Kador Ouryon > ((Oh I dropped comms thinking you were gone))
    [ 2016.01.23 21:32:54 ] Thal Vadam > "Well Luna...I haven't said anything out of being polite"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:34:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:42:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I ... um. I don't think our feelings on our host's behalf are likely to be easily hurt, Thal....
    [ 2016.01.23 21:43:08 ] Thal Vadam > "Oh no Aria, all I want to say is I want to light half those statues on fire"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:44:31 ] Aria Jenneth > ... there's really nothing else?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:44:34 ] Aria Jenneth > ... hm.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:44:59 ] Kador Ouryon > I suppose not.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:45:27 ] Kador Ouryon > Unless our host has been held up. Children always seem to want two more stories before bed.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:45:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:45:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That is very true"
    [ 2016.01.23 21:46:07 ] Aria Jenneth > I meant, nothing else Thal ... wants to say.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:46:51 ] Kador Ouryon > /emote smirks.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:47:02 ] Kador Ouryon > I'm sure there is a lot more he wants to say
    [ 2016.01.23 21:48:00 ] Thal Vadam > /emote sighs "I'm not sure Aria. I suppose I've seen a lot I hate. But the Queen is no Funk" "
    [ 2016.01.23 21:48:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ... no. That's ... definitely true.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:09 ] Kador Ouryon > That's probably for the better.... could you imagine two of them?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:49:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yes.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:50:23 ] Aria Jenneth > It's not all that much worse than one. The problem gets to be if there are a lot more-- or if they're actually competent, and not just ... sort of flitting around making trouble.
    [ 2016.01.23 21:59:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I trust even the more curious among us do not have an issue with that?
    [ 2016.01.23 21:59:17 ] Kador Ouryon > No problem at all.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:02:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Aria?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:03:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Is there anything else you want to see?
    [ 2016.01.23 22:03:58 ] Kador Ouryon > Welp I might depart the palace but stop by the Museum cuz I wants to learn the things and totally not enjoy the Kaztroplis fashion scene..... I mean.... no I'm leaving....
    [ 2016.01.23 22:04:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. Usually at this point I'd be looking for a chance to just wander around, but ... that might not be wise, here.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:05:39 ] Kador Ouryon > Perhaps not unless you want me to provide security.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:06:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Let's stay together"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:06:37 ] Kador Ouryon > ((Remember that time you ran of Kador! DONT DO IT AGAIN!))
    [ 2016.01.23 22:12:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She's driving us?"
    [ 2016.01.23 22:16:18 ] Kador Ouryon > It seem so... I'd have loved to talk with the mechanics about the maintenance of the Queen's vehicles but it wouldn't do to keep her waiting.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:23:07 ] Aria Jenneth > Question about humble surroundings: partially answered, maybe.
    [ 2016.01.23 22:30:12 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Directrix? How much trouble is it likely to cause if I mention this visit to people?
