"I think he'd love that! Annie would love to see some more too." The woman smiles down at the girl who's peaking out at Isabella from behind her leg, thumb in her mouth. "Wouldn't you, Annabelle?"

The girl looks between Roger and Isabella, and buries her face in her mother's skirts. Roger laughs. "I might have a little more magic in me. You're too kind, Mrs…"

"Dahlia," she replies, with a pleasant blush, turning to head down the road. "My home is just at the end of this lane. I hope you two are hungry!"

"Starving!" Roger replies with a laugh, falling into step behind her. But he does fall back a bit, hissing at Isabella. "You can't just invite yourself over for dinner. That's rude!"

"Yes, we would hate to intrude," Isabella says. She understands social niceties. Just, sometimes they get in the way! Gosh. "But that's very kind of you to offer. Thank you." She offers up a smile. "Maybe Joshua can see some tricks later after his nap."

Roger shoots Isabella a look that's supposed to be quelling. It's not polite to just come out and ask like that! But the woman smiles instead. "Oh, come by our place! I'm cooking up some lamb tonight, and there will be more than enough for some guests."

"Are you sure? We don't want to be a burder," Roger says humbly.

"Oh, no trouble at all, really!"

Isabella smiles dimly at the woman. "I'm sure Joshua would have," she agrees, leaning back against the wall in an easy pose. She's very good at looking like she doesn't care. As the conversation continues, she tips her head up and adds in, "Plus we're a little low on food. You know anywhere that'd serve up for a song?" She pauses. "Or for a magic act. One or the other. I'm not a great singer."

Roger's tight smile relaxes a bit when Isabella plays along, and he gives her a grateful look. The kids gasp in delight. One boy calls out, "How'd he do that! He didn't even get close to her!"

"Didn't I tell you? It's magic! Just like it's magic how little girls with dirty ears and lose things in them…" He crouches down by the girl Isabella pointed out, and smiles as he pulls another shiny coin out of thin air. The girl stares at him with her jaw open, and the kids around her shriek in delight. One boy nearby even starts digging furiously at his own ear, checking if there's anything in there.

The clapping and laughing is interrupted as a bell rings out from the church nearby, and everyone starts milling around and talking amongst themselves. The mothers gather their kids up, even as they whine and complain about wanting to see more magic. One mom comes up to Roger and Isabella, smiling big with a baby against one hip, and her daughter clinging to her other hand and hiding shyly behind her mom.

"Thank you so much for the show! Annie loved it, and if Joshua had been awake for it, I'm sure he would have loved it too." She cradles the sleeping baby's head against her shoulder. Roger smiles and shrugs modestly, hands going in his pockets.

"Aw, happy to do it, ma'am. I'm just glad you all enjoyed it."

"Will you both be staying long?" she asks, biting her lip and looking between Roger and Isabella.

"No longer than we're welcome," Roger says with a chuckle, "Though we've yet to find a place to lay our heads."

Isabella is so bored. How can these guileless idiots fall for Roger's stupid tricks? It's just, at its base, a redirection of attention. Don't they know that?

But soon enough, that attention is redirected toward her, and Isa narrows her eyes at Roger. She is totally going to kill you later. But she sighs and rolls her eyes, tucking a hand into her pocket and bringing out the coin. She even manages to fake a bright, shiny smile. "Oh, gosh! How'd you get it all the way over here??" she asks, beaming. "I thought you were going to find it in that little girl's ear. I thought I saw something shiny over there, earlier."

"And when you blow on it, it just… disappears." The small crowd of children and tired adults smile and clap when Roger blows gently on his hand, his fingers slowly uncurling to reveal an empty palm. He smiles at the crowd's pleased response, holding up his hands. "But wait, you see, possessed coins never go far. In fact, I think my friend Isabella here might know where it went."

Roger turns a winning smile to his friend standing no closer than 10 feet away. "Isabella, what do you have in your pocket there?" His smile is friendly, but his eyes are begging her not to screw this up. He's so hungry!

Here is a forum for storytellers and newspassers to use. Instead of having to gather people together to tell them a story or run around tapping everyone for a bit of news, you are free to do so here instead, so everyone can be involved!

How To!

Say there is a Galliard who like to have a story moot, perhaps to tell the tale of a battle or something like that. The player would post a thread here with OOC info (where/when they are telling this story in character), and the in character story that they want to tell.

Other players will them reply with IC reactions or just to note that their character was present. But this also functions as a way to say that a story could be passed around ICly, so any character to say that they heard the story through second or third hand accounts as well.

This same thing could go for important news bits that could spread through the characters. A player can make a post with OOC Info and IC info and others can assume to have heard it directly (via posting to the thread) or indirectly as the news is assumed to have spread.

This will allow people to RP about having heard the stories and news, without anyone being left out because of timing or anyone having to do ten scenes about the same news just to get it out there.

Here is a place for all Rites and Moots to take place, rather than on the mush itself. It allows for everyone to be involved regardless of time constraints or time zone. It also will hopefully make the process of rites a little smoother, so people can RP about the rites while still allowing a Ritemaster to build an intriguing rite for people to enjoy.

How To:
A Ritemaster will make a thread here in this forum, with an opening post that has OOC Info about the rite (what characters would be doing or contributing, what the effects are, what day it's meant to take place and a direction for players to sign up their characters by a certain date/time) and the IC actions they are taking as a ritemaster and the mystical whatnot that is involved.

Players will reply to this post saying that their character was involved and any extra details (like, how much essence they're contributing or wounds taken or whatever the Rite requires). Then the player can assume that on the day of the rite, their character was involved, has the effects of the rite and can RP as if they had been there for the rite.

For Moots, there will be a 'Planning' post, if needed, to fill roles for the moot. Players are encouraged to add any old business/new business they want to bring up at the moot.

Then, the planner of the moot will make a post with OOC info (IC date and event syllabus so people know if and when they need to post) and the IC moot opening and mystical whatnot. Posts will follow for Moot Positions and any other business like challenges or news or any IC Moot happenings.

Players can reply to note that their character was present and any reactions they had or if they had business/news/etc to bring up. And then they are free to RP as if they had been present for this event!
