[FILTERED TO FRIENDS OF BLUE]
If you weren't already aware, Blue's birthday is this Thursday. I have a room booked at Destruction Junction at 7pm on Friday, it's themed, but all you have to bring is yourselves if you'd like to attend. You'll have to sign a liability waiver but this specific theme is more meant for fun than danger.

There will be food (not pizza) and cake in abundance for everyone to enjoy after, at Monmouth. It's only partially furnished at the moment but there's at least a pool table and couches for "hanging out".

[FILTERED TO BLUE]
I didn't want to presume to take the liberty of packing a bag for you or trying anything too spontaneous, so would you be open to being kidnapped on Thursday? I took the entire day off.

I witnessed a sad scene on the beach this morning, so for those of you who are new to living on an island:

If someone suggests that you should feed the seagulls, they are attempting a prank. Don't feed the seagulls. Don't interact with the seagulls at all if you can help it. Any seagull will fight the Void itself for half a crust of bread and it will shit on everything the entire time.



[Thurvishar]
Transmutation of Solids was dry as bone. I thought about throwing it in the sea as a favor to mankind, but I returned it to your shelf. Do you have any books on the subject that won't threaten death by boredom and pedantry within 27 pages?

No additional movement on the man who was collecting fingernails from the salon's trash. I begin to suspect that rather than attempting ritual magic, he's just insane.

Well, I certainly picked an interesting week to arrive in.

kratos.
I will be leaving for a few hours if you'd like to check in on Atreus and his friend. I would prefer you were gone by the time I return.

Good morning (is it morning yet?), Vallo:

As this appears to be related to a magical spell or curse, the Department of Magical Research and those associated with it are aiding investigations into what happened and how to resolve it. Below the cut are the names of everyone I am aware of that fell ill during yesterday's Moon Day festivities. If you recall a name that is not on this list, please share it, along with any other information that you might have as to timing, initial symptoms, etc.

Thank you for your assistance.

an excerpt from Lady Boyle's Travel Guide: Serkonos, Chapter 4 - Surviving the Serkonan Sun:


1. Wear loose, lightweight fabrics. Leave the wool in Gristol if you want to survive your summer holiday by the crystal blue sea. Cotton and linen will become your new closest companions.
2. But not too close! Those poufy blouses and wide sleeves on the women and men of Karnaca aren't just for style - the more air flow you can get, the happier you'll be.
3. Think twice before baring everything. You may see a Cullero dockworker going shirtless all day and think "I shall abandon my wardrobe entirely!" without considering that your delicate Dunwall skin is not inured to the heat and the sun's constant rays. Take it from a lady who has suffered sunstroke: keep covered or weep.
4. Hats have not been the fashion in Dunwall for some time, but they are a practical necessity if you must be about on the southern isle. A broad brim will provide much-needed shade for the face no matter where you may find yourself standing.
5. Time your activities according to the sun! If you wish to take a hike on Shindaery Peak, start at first light and finish before the sun reaches its zenith. If you want to enjoy the food stalls in Cyria Gardens, venture out at sunset and enjoy your fried plantains as you watch the lantern-lighting that come with dusk. What to do in the afternoon? Enjoy the lovely local tradition of the afternoon nap.
6. Water and juice will serve you far better than champagne in the heat (though I must recommend the champagne and peach cocktail they serve at the Grand Karnaca Hotel). Keep drinking to keep yourself in enough sweat to cool your body as it evaporates.
7. Enjoy smaller meals with only moderate amounts of meat (if any). The work of digestion raises the heat of the body! Spread it out over the day as much as you can; there's a reason Serkonos invented Small Plates!
8. Not one place in any town will be running the ovens or stovetops in the heat of the day, and you shouldn't, either. It's hot enough without creating extra sources of it.
9. Treat yourself to a basin of cool water for soaking your feet at the end of the day. It will cool you off for sleep and feel positively divine!
10. And finally, when choosing a hotel room, look for one on the ground floor. Heat rises, and accordingly upstairs rooms are particularly upsetting in a Serkonan summer. For maximum beauty sleep, stay low and shaded.


Hope that helps. Complain less, nap more.

So that uh, parade this morning? Is that sort of thing normal here? Like a lot of girls kissing girls and guys kissing guys with everybody being good with it? Cause-- cool. That's very rad. Robin w

But uh hey, it's Steve again. I figured out how to use this thing better, so thanks for the help. Does anybody know where I can get lessons on how to swing those huge swords around, so El stops staring at me like I can't handle it? I'm good with a lot of weapons! Especially the swinging part.

Now that the jello-monster siege has subsided, I suppose I ought to introduce myself. Enzo St. John, new arrival. Thrilled to be here, truly. Even with the barrage of angry creatures and magical mishaps.

I received an unusual note in my office earlier this week - unusual both in its contents and in the fact that it was delivered without setting off my wards. While I have a suspicion as to who left it, its content is the more concerning matter:

[ Transcript of this note follows ]

'Magical energy of blood' is rarely a sentence that goes well for anyone. I've discovered references to The Morrigan's Grail, and it's a local legend. My library only goes so far in these matters, and so I'm going to ask Sabrina and Bonnie to lean on a few favors with regard to Vallo research. I ask that you consider your most stealthy defense squad team members and assign them to monitor the area with the upmost discretion, given the delicacies of the circumstances. This might be nothing. Our luck, however, rarely runs in that direction.

[ Filtered to Bonnie, Sabrina ]

I've a need of a local collection - specifically regarding urban legends and historical artifacts from Vallo's past. Could either of you please facilitate this request for me with a knowledgeable and prudent coven contact?

So, Wanda and I are getting married this weekend. She's been working on catering the whole thing (including baking the cake) because my diet is very weird these days. But I wanted to give a snippet into what it looks like, catering your own wedding reception:

cut for pics )

The last one was right when something literally crawled away from her and the second to last is my new phone background, mostly because it was accompanied by "get the fuck away from me, Stephen."

(Yes, I'm helping and not just being a snarky asshole taking pictures.)

We'll see you Saturday on the mountain around sunset, just meet at the base and transportation up will be provided unless you want to climb a mountain for some reason. Plus ones all invited, you can bring multiple plus ones if you want. I'll be working some magical physics to allow for enough space and then just walk through the portal(s) back to the Sanctum for a party once we nervously say vows and probably cry. Cloak will conveniently be a hankie for me, and I'm grateful for that.

Good morning ☀️ hunnies!! 🤗🥰😘 Remember me? 👋👋

It was a little over a year 📅 ago that (❗️❗️ THIS IS HUGE ❗️❗️) my interest in gardening 🌱💮 was sparked 💥 thanks to some sudden 👸💆‍♀️💅 memories from home 🧝🔮. It was a bit later on in the season, so while some plants 🌿🌴 were still able to thrive (❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️), many of those more suited for spring 🍃 had to be skipped. This year 📅, however, is a different story 🎉🥳🙌 and it has been quite nice to leave the house 🏡 in the morning 🌄☕ to see so many blooms 🌼🌻🌹, those practical for components ✨ and simply for aesthetics 🧐 alike.

UMMM! 😱😱😱 Not that I can claim all credit for them, of course. 😇🤫 I think it is fair to say that Yasha 🌩️🌷 is far more gifted 🎁 in that area than I am.

So any boss babes 🤸💁💅 wanna join my amazing team ✌️ and change the world?? 🌍👯‍🤗

[...] This is what I get for hoping 🤞🤞🤞 whatever has been happening on here was over. 🤣💀 How ridiculous. 🤪

CALEB
Hey hottie~ 🔥💖💋 random question for you! 💓🔎📝

😊😊😊 Your birthday 🎂🎈 is in a few weeks 📅❗️❗️ and I thought that rather than plan an event 🥳 for you without asking permission again 🙊🤷🙃, I would see if you wanted to do 😏 anything in particular. I thought asking might also prevent any of our friends 🍭💥🌊⚡ from making potentially unwanted 🙅⛔ plans, as well. 😅

[...] I am so sorry. 🙇‍♂️🤦

Oyster season is over. Any fresh oysters you get from Earth to Rain - that's May to August here, more or less - are watery garbage. I'm telling everyone this because the next idiot to ask me about oysters at the market is losing a finger.

Still alive, Syd.

In light of recent events causing some dramatic changes in my life, I'll be stepping away from my position at Geliara, and will not be returning in the fall. Additionally, I'll be hiring a full time manager to run Uncommon Goods for me, and will be shifting my focus to the DOA. I'll still be involved in the shop, should anyone need anything, but less hands on. This way I can have more time at home.

I'll be continuing my work with the local covens, and Outlander coven in a more full time capacity, while also acting as a representative of Outlander magic-users with the Vallo government. You can find me at the DOA offices full time now.

Spotted a ghost ship off New Asgard, drifting west. Ship-rigged sloop, looks like one gun deck. Can't spot a name on her, but she's flying a black flag with a horned skeleton stabbing a heart.

Someone who knows how to not catch a plague should probably look into it.

Chasing after the Cloak, who is chasing after a bunch of snowballs with faces is pretty normal for Vallo, I think. But Vishanti's sake.

Also sudden dumps of new mental letters from home are annoying - who else has experienced those? Has it changed you here? I mean physically. Besides the 'well, thanks for the new trauma' change.

Additionally, I'm looking for someone to spar with. I do my katas every morning but practicing with a quarterstaff has fallen by the wayside. If anyone's interested, let me know. I can bring us to the Mirror Dimension or wherever else.

filtered to friends and family:

Wanda and I set a date for the wedding. It will happen on June 4th, atop our favorite mountain that we sort of broke again after we fucked on-- and we'll have a portal or two open to help people get there, but we don't anticipate the entirety of Vallo. We just would like our friends and family to join us for the ceremony and also for a reception back at the Sanctum afterward.

Soooooo.
