Far and Away

Scene I "A Party"

Day 1 Year 1105

You have arrived at a lush party on the Floating Palace of Drinax. You were all separately invited to The Floating Palace and arrived in the last few days. Your invitation was royal, from the Princess Rao but you were directed to meet with Fiona Cartier who has provided you with accommodations and credits for your stay.

Now you are at the party with richly dressed men and women of the Drinax nobility, their consorts, and others affiliated with the good life on the Floating Palace. Your clothes are good and purchased on the Palace, but not up to par with the costumes you see all around you. You grab a few hors d’ouerves and slug back a drink or two. You do get a lot of stares and not just for your attire, you assume. The dip running down you chin maybe one reason. You wipe it up and flash a smile.

You meet the Princess Rao for the first time and she puts you at ease. You are getting fewer stares now that the Princess has granted you status.

At some point you assume you will be invited to meet with the Princess or whoever it is she wants you to meet, but for now she just asks you to mingle and enjoy yourself. “Who knows,” seh says, “you life may depend on some of the people in this room one day . . . soon.” And the she is wisked away to another clutch of guests.

Your Objective: Mingle and try to find out what is going on or who there is to know. Use carouse, diplomat, deception, or whatever skills you are best at. Try not to kill anyone.

The Guests at the party include:
Princess Rao
Prince Harrick
Lord Wrax
Scholar Voha
Kaisyl of the Ahroay
Thao Poloc
Lady Hil
Sal Dancet
Fiona Cartier
Jim DiGriz
Ahmed Barook
Char is’Brokenz
Various Military, Artists, and other notables.

GAMEPLAY: Formulate simple actions using skills you are good to converse with people and find things out. Read about skills on page 48 of rule book. With good plans and good skill checks you’ll find out some useful info, gain a favor or other accomodation. With bad skill checks, people will think less of you, shun you, and maybe even work against you. Consider this practice. After a few encounters I will move you to the main meeting.
