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.

Good morning - I do hope everyone is enjoying their breakfasts, or already enjoyed one, because I'm about to share something which may make you lose it.

There seems to be an infestation of Deepstalkers in the forest - they hail from Thedas, in the Deep Roads specifically. Found underground, they're a big part of dwarven folklore and stories told to children - though they do actually exist, and look like lizards with round mouths filled with teeth and extremely creepy claws. Pure nightmare fuel, essentially. They hunt in packs and spit acid, so take heed if you have a farm or a garden or plan to go out hunting for them yourselves.

Though Deepstalker hide is a common crafting material in Thedas as well - if you bring what you skin to Glorious Purveyors, we'll see what we can do.

I did swing by that youth center that we talked about for Velora, just to check it out. I'm probably being overly cautious, but I can accept being an overprotective brother/legal guardian.

It looks good, overall. The kids seemed to be enjoying themselves and the staff was pretty attentive. I saw a list of classes that they have to keep them busy and I felt like Velora would be interested in more or less all of them, so that's a good sign. They are looking for staff and volunteers, though. I was thinking It's

[...] Would it be crazy if I tried something like that? I'm hesitant since outside of our sister and Kiri, my track record with handling youths isn't the greatest. So -- I don't know.

In news that I imagine only Blue is interested in, my previously cancelled book readings are being rescheduled for this coming week at Chastity's Nook during the evening. Violent fowl rather got in the way last time for reasons I just don't want to think about anymore for the sake of my pride. But the socks I was given as payment for this service are rather wonderful and I would hate to disappoint, so here we are, rescheduling. As the resident experts, I've requested that Caleb and Jester pick the books to pull excerpts from, so I'm sure there will be far better selections than I might have chosen.

Anyway, if you have some desire to listen to me read adult literature, next week is your chance. You should also buy books or literally anything else they have for sale while you're there. Or, I don't know, bring cupcakes.

(You're welcome for the stellar marketing. I know where you both live to deliver the bill.)

[filtered to magic users/interested touchy-feely parties - this is posted later in the evening on saturday]

Good news! For those who desired a spritz of calming lavender to assuage the need for a fainting couch over Stuff to be Touched, I assure you that all is well after our first meeting with a newly discovered local coven, who specialize in blood rituals and necromancy (which is also my specialty, though admittedly I've never used blood to Get It Done, as it were). As you may know, we've already established rapport with most of the other local covens, by way of our Outlander coven - Beketh also took some time to warm up to a group of enthusiastic interlopers eager to show off their magic, who would have thought?

We had a pleasant conversation with the new coven called Asetnerra, however, and they are open to meeting more of us. Though we asked kindly for them to dial down the dramatics and simply send a letter next time, should they wish to communicate, because. Well. No one wants a repeat of the Touching the Stuff controversy.

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.

Velora tried to bring home no less than six forest animals (and one Vallo native) on the way home from picking up dinner tonight and I'm torn between pride that she takes after me in that way, and worried about what will happen if she ever accidentally slips off on her own long enough to convince one of the raccoons we came across to come live in her bedroom.

Vax--I think our sister needs a puppy. Or a cat. This place can always use more cats.

This is embarrassingly belated, but I'm ready to take you up on that wine night if you're up for it. I've reached the point where I've left the pity party so copious amounts of wine seems like much less of a bad idea. Thoughts?

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.

I'm picking the sword back up. We start training tonight.

In an attempt to get a read on the situation and see if this bears similarities to what happened during the summer, is anyone else experiencing abnormalities with their magic or other abilities this morning?

Here's a question for the masses: what is the strangest, yet most mundane thing that has changed for you here?

Mine has to be both wearing clothes that weren't made for adventuring and not lacing up a corset every day. I can't say the alternatives to the latter here are much more comfortable, though.

Every so often the stars align, lightning strikes, the orchestra swells to a crescendo and you meet someone who shares your love of verbosity, panache, the arcane arts, accessories, and properly groomed facial hair. You spend hours together before a fete rearranging floral decor and debating over the proper dimness the light should be. You receive what I've learned is called a 'selfie'--a veritable bounty of them, in fact, and deliberate over the most flattering angle (it was no. 56, for the record, Dorian, your jaw!).

You realize, that running two separate, wildly successful enterprises that have very similar aspirations of providing unique, top quality enchanted items, potions, relics, antiques, and ephemera to the world. Thus, misty eyed and heartfelt, Dorian and I proudly present under one banner:

Glorious Purveyors of Fabled Impedimenta and Accouterments.

We're in the process of moving everything over to the shop's location in the forest, redecorating, and enlarging the physical space. Today it's all about ensuring that Thaddeus Gigantus Crumbum the Third settles in nicely (he's a Stone golem, absolutely delightful to converse with but does take his sentinel status quite seriously, don't take it too personally if he doesn't respond right away). Nesta, darling Nesta, is our compass pointing true north whilst being a superb source of Fae materials, never leave me lest I wither away! Come on Monday, darlings, we can't wait to see you.

If I ever settle on a color arrangement for these potions, that is.

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.

Well, isn't today an exercise in patience in the face of calamity? I'm going to have to bring extra Flames of Our Lady to Gilmore's shop today, for our daily 'goss sesh.'

Please do not be alarmed. He now belongs to Atreus and they've already hit it off splendidly, as I knew they would when I wandered into the animal rescue facility and said 'please show me the biggest, dumbest canine you have available for adoption.'

The happiest of birthdays to you, Atreus. I'll share shots of Flames of Our Lady in honor of you, with anyone who comes by the shop.

I don't even know how to say this but I don't want anyone to get hurt, so - please just be careful, if you hike in the cliffs or use the waypoints. A very big, very primordial evil showed up here - it's called the Overlook Hotel, and it's from my world. I destroyed it once by rigging the boiler to blow and died with it but it seems a little hardier this time, unfortunately.
