Right, well, that was a nice week off, and I'm ready to work.

I've seen people write on this communication device that they were desiring of training. I understand there to be a great variety of options already for this kind of thing, but if it's not a kick in the teeth, I'd like to have a go of it as a way to earn my keep around here. This wouldn't be intended for people who have the experience and the skills and powers I can't comprehend, etc, already in place, although I wouldn't kick out anyone with a genuine interest in improvement. This would be intended for people who have little experience with self-defense and want the basics, and we build from there - a way to keep the populace safer when we have these monsters breach our defenses and get as far as city center.

I'm thinking daggers, sword (one hander only, and on top of that, I don't have much use for shields in this exercise because they require so much body strength up front, and because the point here is not to tank through a hit so much as avoid it in the first place), club... open to suggestions. Also will have a blunderbuss or its like on standby; Vallo has yet to give me my gun but I'm not an Upper Cathedral snob; I'll work with what's available.

So: common lessons for those who want to learn from the ground up. I did it off and on for years back home. Physical self-defense only; while I can do magic there are several perfectly knowledgable universities that can be of more assistance for that, and I hear they don't even make their students prospect through any cursed tombs.

Any interest? Any objections? Speak.

Darlings, as I am an salesman at heart, I find that it is often best to deliver information that may not well received sandwiched between otherwise fantastic news. If I may.

Good news: The accoutrements at Glorious Purveyors are, for lack of a better word, sublime. I, for one, have made ample use of a Blasting Cowl most recently and sometimes I wow even myself!

Bad news: We know this because the shop is currently under barrage from the recently arrived magic fiends.

Good news: Dorian is looking impeccable in boysenberry whilst he wields an ice staff!

Bad news: The shop is closed for the foreseeable future.

Good news: Nesta is a radiant avenging angel with a sword!

We're handling everything quite well, worry not, darlings, and have every intention of returning back to full services as soon as all of this is over with. Although, if anyone wishes to teleport over a bottle of wine, that would be most delightful.

DEFENSE DEPARTMENT.

If I haven't said it recently, you're all amazing and this department is lucky to have each of you.

How would everyone feel about a team dinner out one night? We can hold a private event at Galahd's. Food and drinks on me. Karaoke optional.

A while back, a house from our world arrived. We admittedly haven't done much with it because it isn't ho, because in order to get inside you have to have flight capability, some sort of teleporting ability, or the desire to walk up 10000 stairs. Elain and I lack all of these, and I don't want to feel dependant on anyone Cassian's wings.

Is anyone able and willing to install some sort of teleportation device or magical lift that goes from the bottom of the tower to the top? There's a waypoint outside of the house, but it's only so helpful with its location on the ground. Preferably I'd like something that will last if you happen to get sent home.

I'm willing to pay for your time and labor, than ugh thank you.

Not sure who shouted "Dominic Toretto must be defeated!" but I appreciate you.

But this is me announcing my retirement from Fight Club. These old bones can't keep up with you young ones anymore. It was fun while it lasted, fully expect me to come watch and bet on you all still.

Now to the point of this post, who here is interested in racing cars?

Twenty-eight years ago, I was born. Lucky for all, that event was softened by the most wonderful Vex'ahlia's arrival a handful of minutes later.

My birthday wish is that everyone that reads this takes a little bit of time for themselves today. Some suggestions: Read a book. Have pizza for breakfast. Sharpen your daggers. Throw them at the wall so they don't get bored. Tie the laces of all your sister's shoes (yes, the sister you just talked up) together. Go to Glorious Purveyors and buy yourself something, then tell Gilmore that Vax sent you so he knows just how good I am now at advertising. Drink some tea.

That's all. I don't ask for much, really.

Darlings! Fantastic news! After the, ah, temporary displacement of your three most glorious purveyors, the shop is re-opened and organized and re-stocked and primed for your visit once again!

A very special thank you to our dearest darlings who, ah, temporarily filled in for us. Perhaps it may have taken me no less than three entrances and exits, a series of deep breathing exercises, and quite a lot of incense--and then repeat the entire process whence I looked upon the sales book--which, by the way, if anyone purchased 'bracelet or maybe a bracer or it could have been a necklace????' from Vax, do let me know so that mystery may be placed to bed and drift off in a peaceful slumber.

At one point in time he commenced drawing items, darling, is this a cloak or a ring or an eldritch monster I am still perplexed

Problem: In my attempts to glean information or a solution or to simply do something I crafted many a potion that I have...very limited information on as to the effects. Without my standard ingredients I was forced to be innovative and although I know my intentions I'm not entirely convinced I was successful.

Solution: Glorious Purveyors is having a mystery potion sale! Although we're not liable for any damages (and will make you sign a release, naturally), they all do something positive! And, again, I had limited time and resources so everything is of a minor effect. Anyway! Risk takers apply, I'll do my best to steer you towards a certain one if there's something you're angling for but I make no promises.

Also! We're hosting a salon on Friday--ask Dorian for the exact pronunciation of the word, he does it so well it's shameful. Expect lots of wine, fantastic people, idle gossip, a display of talents, to spend your money, and readings from romance novels (but only from Chastity's Nook, a most stupendous of bookstores).

Hey, Vallo Prime and Vallo Dark - everybody should be able to see this on network-connected devices.

Thanks, whoever you folks who helped stabilize the connection on the Vallo Prime end are. I'm Dr. Morgan Yu, and I'm about to go full typhon because that shit was exhausting. Vallo Dark-area psychics, don't freak if you sense a weird white noise; my thoughts are always like that, but they tend to get a little louder when I'm not holding a human form.

While I'm napping, see what you can do about getting us all out of this foggy hellhole.

Thanks in part to the recent surge in giant insects, Glorious Purveyors is well stocked in potions, tonics and oils of everything from healing restoratives to potions that will allow you to fly for a limited amount of time. So if you're one of those that missed out on what looked like a delightful display of magic swapping, live out your dreams here. Or outside of here - don't drink the potions in our shop, Thaddeus will escort you out painfully, I've seen it happen.

There's also a new shipment from the fae realm here in Vallo - books and enchanted magical items. A dagger that allows you to teleport short distances when it's activated, boots that allow you to meld into the background, a gem that allows you to see through illusions, magic acorns that allow for rapid garden growing pixie dust, and a few other things that are even a mystery to us. Bring full accounts, we don't offer a discount to Outlanders and enchanted magic items fetch a pretty gold coin in value.

It's not too late to protect your plants and gardens from snow and ice! A light dusting of snow won't do anything, but young, small plants can't hold the weight of much more than an inch of snow.

I like to spread a blend of bark chips, moss, straw, and leaves around the base of the plant as insulation--but not too high, because the stem will still need to receive moisture. In order to keep the top of your plants safe, you can use a cardboard box to cover them (removing it as soon as possible so they get light!) or a tarp weighed down at the ends. It's also a good idea to check out any young trees, especially if they lean heavily to one side naturally. Consider tying it to a nearby tree, so that the weight of the snow and ice don't cause the tree to snap. If it's safe, I think it's always a good idea to go out and shake snow and ice off of branches, so that you don't have a larger mess to deal with later.

Plant care is a year round job! And work in the winter results in a very flowering and fruitful spring and summer! (I couldn't help that, I'm so sorry!)

Some wonderful soul out there decided that having me grounded on the floor for some time was awful. So now I got my wings.

Any rules in these parts about flying around like a giant metallic bird?

You've never seen a smug ghost until the spectral form of your sister shows up in your room in the early waking hours, waiting a few moments before saying anything. I would have rather been followed around by the dead asshole that made me fae.

Elain, please come distract. Because if this persists, I will find a way to turn her into dust, and maybe seeing you will get her to stop crowing like the beast she is.

Then I'll sell my services for any of you that are plagued by your own haunted apparitions.

Hello, my name is Steve. I've been briefed by the DOA, so I understand what's going on. This probably isn't even the strangest thing I've been introduced to, so please forgive my lack of shock and surprise at the circumstances. I've been told that I've even been here before, which I don't remember. Apparently also normal for Vallo.

I signed up for the Defense group while I was in the building, but I'd like a chance to explore the place and see the sights. Let's be honest, I could use a break. And whoever put that video together needs to teach the marketing teams that got me to do a few back home.

There are some really beautifully colored leaves on the ground! I've noticed some people are bagging them up? Which is fine, of course, but actually, the leaves are really good for plants! If they're shredded and left on the ground, worms will come and eat them, and a healthy garden has plenty of worms! Or you can use them to keep perennial bulbs and root vegetables warm during the winter. I liked to have a pile, and then in the spring when the leaves had decomposed, I would use them as food for the soil. A happy ground is a happy garden!

Which is a very silly statement and I can't really believe I've said that.

is this-- oh I have been told this is a quicker means of communication. I am Captain William Laurence, and I have been told all of us are in the same spot, so I will spare you the demands of getting home. I would just rath

I just seem to be missing my dragon. Well- he is not mine, he is his own self, but-I he doesn't do well being separated from me and I would not want him to cause trouble. He is large and black, near 20 tonnes, and difficult to miss, as you might imagine. Answers to the name Temeraire. If you happen to spot him, do feel free to let him know I am here.
