Welcome to Banished Quest!
You take the role of a young mage labeled a criminal by his people and cast out into the wider world. In the last thread you read a book, followed a cat, and discovered a forgotten idol.

You reach out to your Master via the brooches. {Master Karim, this is simply a precautionary measure but I urge you not to enchant anything or meditate upon reality for the next week or so. A Child of the Gods has wandered through this area of the void and it seems to be having adverse affects on spirits in the area. I caught a glimpse of it and felt my soul boiling away into the aether.}

His reply is swift. {Gods above, the minute I start to make progress something must come along and ruin my efforts. Very well, I'll abstain from experimenting for now. How can you tell this 'Child of the Gods' is still in the area? Is it really one of the Gods' children or is that merely some sort of moniker attributed to it?}

{So far as I'm aware, it is a literal child of the gods. Granted the gods supposedly do not reproduce in the same faction we mortals do. Rather they seem to merely break off a piece of themselves which then goes on to mature into an entity all its own. The envoy I met titled the creature the Lord of the Void and it bore massive horns upon its head. It actually reminded me of a Child of Surya. Anyway, there is a shrine beneath my estate which seems to activate in the presence of the Child. If you ever want to check, feel free to swing by.}

You start to wander out of the tunnel and back towards the entrance to the catacombs. Master Karim's voice once more pushes its way through the connection afforded to you by the brooches as you slip through the arched entry into the slave passages. {A child of the gods... if only there were some way to speak with such an entity. It could answer so many of those eternal questions we've pondered through the ages.}

{Sadly I doubt that's practical if it boiled part of your soul away merely by the sight of it. Anyway, we can discuss this in person later. I trust you're soon to send a messenger to fetch myself and the rest of the guest. They've all arrived quite some time ago and it grows increasingly difficult to keep anyone from touching the food.}

{That's right, I'm making my way back into the estate to send out two messengers right now. You should expect them in perhaps a half hour or so.}

With that, the connection is severed. As you make your way towards the kitchen, where you originally entered the slave passages, you reach out to Darzi, Chryssa, Profectus, and Thaddeus. {How goes shopping? I'm about to send out messengers to fetch the guest, so I do hope you're on your way back.}

Darzi is the one to reply. {We're almost back. I really think we made some fine purchases today. You're going to love what Chryssa got for herself. It's a-}

Chrys interrupts. {It would not be proper to spoil a surprise. He will see it when he sees it.}

You get the vague sense that Darzi is disappointed. {Fine, fine. I'll keep my mouth shut for now then. Anyway, we'll be back in about fifteen minutes or so.}

That works out perfectly. The guest will arrive about an hour after you send out the messengers so they'll have plenty of time to get ready.

You emerge from the tunnels in the kitchens and make your way into the dining room. You find Prema making a few final adjustments, mostly to minor things like the placement of cutlery. You clear your throat to get her attention and she whips about, surprised.

Bowing low, she apologizes. “I hadn't seen you there, Master. Shall I send out some of the servants to fetch the guest?”

You nod. “One to my Master's home, I trust you recall where it is. Another to my parent's home. It's the Abdul-Hakim family estate. Those of my family who are interested in attending ought to be gathered there already. It's three blocks north of the palace gates and a few houses to the west.”

She straightens up, standing stiffly. You'd almost say she was standing at attention. “Of course, sir. I'll send Stelios and a woman who was previously employed in the Noble's District.”

You dismiss her with a wave and she marches off, vanishing through an unseen doorway nested within the wall. It shuts with a quiet click behind her. You're left to your thoughts, for now.

You decide to seek out Mortia. It feels like days since you last saw her. No doubt she's been locked away in the basement breathing fumes and doing only the Gods know what. Probably concocting a poison to slip into your drink. She can't be trusted, she's not from your world. She's an outsider. You should kill her now, while the others are away. Stop her before she can turn them against you.

You push such thoughts to the back of your mind and proceed up the stairs to the second story and from there through the glass doors into the greenhouse which lies within the bridge spanning the distance between the main complex and the tower in the midst of the sea. The gardens really are quite nice now, although you couldn't really describe them as 'decorative'. Neat, orderly rows of plant life line the hall.

A dozen or so slaves tend to the plants, spritzing water on leaves and taking clippings. You don't really understand the rhyme or reason to it all. You were never much of a gardener. It is interesting though, and you're glad that whoever it was that designed the new gardens, Mortia presumably, went for a more practical design.

You spend some time wandering the gardens but see no sign of Mortia, and so you proceed through the entrance to the tower at the end of the hall. As before, the door opens up into a sort of studio. Unmarked slabs of marble line one side of the hall and you see that someone, presumably Chrys, has already dragged one of the blacks forward and set to work shaping it. She's already fashioned a rough head of some figure from the block. You can see two long ears on either side, so presumably it will be an elf or a samjan. You can't be certain of more than that.

Ignoring the studio you proceed down a flight of stairs to the training room. The floor is padded with some sort of soft, spongy material. It may be actual sponge, you can't profess to be certain. Training dummies have been propped up at one end and opposite the training dummies are a series of weapon wracks holding any number of wooden replica swords, spears, axes, and knives.

However, it's not the weapons that interest you. Rather it's the wooden hatch in the center of the room. You step up to it and heave, lifting the hatch with only moderate difficulty. Within is a narrow wooden stairwell. Descending into the basement yourself assaulted by a harsh, acidic stench. It stings your eyes and makes your throat burn. As you reach the base of the stairs you find an elaborate and perhaps extravagant laboratory has been set up for Mortia's use, though you're forced to wonder where you'll store wine and junk without a cellar.

Mortia herself is wearing thick, black goggles and a strange mask you don't recognize. It has holes all across the front but some sort of strange fabric stretches across those holes, blocking them. You can't imagine how she breathes, but seems to be managing quite find. She's covered from head to toe, not an inch of flesh showing except for her face. Even her hair is hidden behind some sort of silken scarf.

She's carefully turning the nob on some sort of device to bring a flame spewing from the top higher. You see no source for the flame. There is no wood, nor charcoal, nor anything of the sort. You assume it must be enchanted but you can't imagine who would've bought it, unless it was considered common enough to be a cheap trinket, which you doubt. Then again, Mortia did keep her money rather than put it in your cloak. You suppose she may have bought it herself.

This has got some serious "Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem" vibe to the quest with the insanity thoughts and what not.
the reason I'm not referencing CoC is because I don't relate to it that well in comparison to Eternal Darkness.

You cover your mouth and nose with the hem of your robe and watch Mortia as she works. She seems to dub the flame acceptable at its current level, though you don't know what metric she was judging by, and then places a vial with some sort of thick, viscous substance on top of the flame. It's supported by a little ring of metal. Once she's placed the vial on the ring she affixes some sort of curved glass tube into the top and places the other end of the tube inside a vial which contains some sort of red liquid.

She slumps into a chair, watching attentively as the purple substance begins to boil. She seems to be distilling the purple substance into the red substance, for whatever reason. As you watch the purple substance turns a soft, almost golden yellow. Granules begin to accumulate at the bottom as more and more color drains away. Eventually she's left with what seems to be a vial of golden pebbles.

By contrast, the red substance begins to turn a deep blue, and then suddenly black. It begins to bubble, becoming incredibly viscous. It almost starts to remind you of that weird solidified vys you accidentally created while meditating, although the color is different. Mortia removes the curved glass tube and the vial of gold pebbles, examining them briefly before setting the vial aside. She devotes her attention fully to the black substance. Using a strange needle-like device she extracts some of the black substance and wanders over to a cabinet.

Pulling open one of the cabinet doors, she extracts a rat. She probably captured it off the street or found it in the estate. It seems to be either unconscious or dead, you think unconscious. It might just be your imagination, but its tiny chest seems to be moving. Mortia sets the rat down on a metal tray on the central table and pushes the needle into the rat's abdomen, depressing the plunger at the end. Then she removes the needle and collects a notebook, beginning to scribble away animatedly using a writing device you don't recognize.

The rat convulses briefly, and then falls still. You think she's killed it. Yet a moment later it begins to change. It grows to twice the size it once was, its teeth elongating. Its fur falls out in clumps until in only a few minute's time it's become entirely hairless, a disgusting creature. Then its stomach burst open and a grotesque slurry of putrefied organs spew out onto the tray. The stench is absolutely abominable.

Mortia starts shouting. “Gods damn these rats, I thought I'd finally had it! Why? Why did it not work? I had perfected the formula! It should have turned into an unstoppable monstrosity, not keeled over and died! Maybe I just need a test subject with a stronger constitution, a homeless man perhaps... though that probably wouldn't be ethical... hmm...” She trails off, rubbing her chin contemplatively.

Posting this for right now, since I'll be at work when the party finally starts.

1.) We should invite the cat to the party/set aside a place or meal for the cat for the party. I just want to laugh inwardly while we start treating the cat like our landlord and an honored guest/business partner.

2.) Set up the Seige! demonstration somewhere, and clean our clothes because they are gonna stink up to high heaven with all the chemicals in the air.

3.) Should we introduce Zahak? Should we have Zahak at the dining table? And if we do, we have to give him a quick rundown on etiquette when dealing with a dinner party.

4.) Also, we should really start with helping out Darzi's loyalty mission regarding the "desertion" of her post and failing to report to the El-Amin city Guard. Maybe when Darzi gets that all sorted out she can be the Captain of our household guard if she does not want to take part in the Pa'vala? She does have PTSD from the Mines, being tortured, etc., and though she is a great friend to Mik she freaks out way too often. Besides, she is a trusted friend and one of the richest women in El-Amin.

I want to create a massive trade empire that works alongside our families. (For example, I know father deals in ship trade and opened up a new mining venture. I was hoping that we create an additional fleet with our funds from the Pa'vala excursion to start trading in luxury goods, (like wood). If we can get SK to create a Desalinization plant we could probably buy land really cheaply around El-Amin, set up the Salinization plant, and then make the land arable to increase the land value by at least 10x what we bought it for, as well as providing food for the city as well).

I'm hoping that Mik tries to create a merchant web where he basically has the entire city/Empire of El-Amin by the balls economically (through subsidiaries of course, the Shah wouldn't like it and may try to use his influence as ruler to cripple us before we get going).

-she is way more stable since we erased her scars

You clear your throat, startling Mortia. She jumps, her knee striking the bottom of the table and rattling the variety of glass vials stacked on the table. “Shit, Mikhael! You scared the life out of me. Look, I can explain. I know this looks bad but I've been trying out-”

You cut her off with a wave of your hand. “Relax, Mortia. I'm not upset. They're just rats, after all. Anyway, you said the serum is supposed to make them stronger, right? What if I tried healing them as the potion took effect? That ought to prevent such complications as their stomachs bursting open or organs rotting in their bodies.”

She looks flushed, but you assume that's merely because she's embarrassed. “U-um, sure. S-sure just, give me a second to find you a mask. You really shouldn't breathe these fumes. I've used a lot of mercury in this concoction and the fumes are particularly noxious. There are also some plant extracts which you probably don't want to breathe in since I'm pretty sure some of them are essential elements in poisons which can kill a man in under a minute.”

She wanders over to the cabinets and pulls open a separate little drawer. Inside are a stack of mask like hers. She picks one up, along with a set of thick goggles, and cross the room to hand both items to you. You pull on the mask, and affix the goggles to your face. Immediately you feel better. You're able to breathe normally, you're not dizzy, your throat slowly stops burning, your eyes aren't watering anymore. It's amazing.

Mortia gestures you over to the table, and you come to stand next to her. She holds out her hands towards the rat. “Okay, I need you to toss this into the furnace. I'm going to prepare another syringe of my serum and get another rat sedated and ready to go. Be careful putting the rat corpse in the furnace because the substance is combustible and the rat may explode.”

What the fuck, man?

You do as directed, carefully lifting the tray with a manipulate spell and dragging it over to a massive furnace set in the wall. It's currently off, but you toss the rat corpse inside and use a bit of magic to create a flame inside. Much to your surprise, the furnace roars violently to life. You hadn't really intended to create such a large flame. There's a series of high pitched, violent popping noises form inside and then silence.

As you cut the magic the flame dies, and you return to find Mortia with needle in hand, a rate held down against a new tray. You sat the one still covered in the remnants of rat intestines on a table pressed against the wall.

“Okay, are you ready? I'm going to give it the injection now. Its body will probably start to rapidly swell, which may be either a sign of muscle growth or rapid decomposition. Regardless, start healing it as soon as I take the needle out.”

She plunges the needle into its abdomen, injecting that foul substance into the rat. You begin to channel magic, mending the rat even as its body deteriorates. It begins to grow, but it doesn't bloat as it had previously. The growth is ordered, and careful. Muscles swell and limbs shift. Teeth elongate, coming to rival even Zahak's snaggle-toothed maw. Its tail thickens and elongates, muscles cording its surface.

It grows, and keeps growing, until it surpasses the size of a small dog. It rapidly spills out over the edge of the tray, nearly knocking over a glass vial as its tail thrashes about. You use manipulate to lift it up into the air. By the time it stops growing it's the size of a young child, and far more muscular than any rat has a right to be. Fortunately it still seems to be asleep.
>Vys Pool: (47/49)

Mortia seems overcome by a sense of triumph, and frankly you find it infectious. Before you even realize it you're hugging one another and cackling madly, shouting to the heavens “It worked! By the gods it worked!” You don't even know what 'it' is, but you know it worked and that's exciting enough.

Eventually Mortia fetches a heavy metal cage, more of a coffin really. There are no bars save for a tiny window on the door and the rest is thick steel. She directs you set the rat inside, and you do so. She locks the cage firmly and nods her head. “Perfect. Now I'll need to mutate a male, and from there we can see if the mutated rats are fertile and if the mutations last through successive generations of breeding.”

Some small part of you wonders what fresh monstrosity you have unleashed on the world, but it's easy to ignore that part of your mind. It's the boring, sensible part. It's far more important that you helped a friend do whatever it is you've done here. “So, your experiment seems complete. Anything else you need to do or should I clear out so you can get ready for the party?”

Mortia still seems giddy, but clears her throat and tries to calm herself so she can reply with some semblance of normalcy. “I actually left all my other clothes in my room, so I'm heading up. There is actually something I'd like to discuss with you, so lets walk and talk.”

You nod, and the two of you ascend the stairs. Mortia pulls of her goggles and mask once you've closed the hatch to the cellar, you opt to do the same. She hangs hers on one of the weapon racks and you do the same, as the two of you begin to make your way through the estate towards the wing of guest bedrooms, Mortia speaks up.

“So, I don't really know about the whole 'restoring Rhynia' thing I was so gung-ho about earlier. I mean, yeah. I feel like it's my obligation as my mother's daughter to strive towards restoring our ancestral homeland. I just don't feel like that's a feasible goal in my lifetime. Anyway, I think I'd like to stay here and work on my alchemy, learn more about the world before I go off trying to change it, you know?”

She pensively clasp her hands in her lap. “Soo... I was wondering if it was okay for me to stay here. I mean, I know you've sort of got a little band that you travel with and I like you, as a friend of course. It's just that I'm not really a fighter... I think I'd be better served just sitting out the adventures. Maybe I could sell my potions to generate some income, pay rent or something like that?”

We would obviously test this extensively before taking it to market. The cost of reagents might very well exceed the margins of the extra meat as well so we would need to do a cost analysis first of all for any idea involving the monitization of mutant animals.

Of course, it has to be a gradual process, next we'll use it on someone's dog to see if the dog remains docile and the effects of the serum on a larger creature, then we'll have to grab some poor shmuck off the streets, preferably human, though an elf would do. We'll test to see the viability of the serum as soldier enhancer, see if they retain their intelligence and if it hinders their casting. Next we'll need to grab a pride of Pidjatan lions to test the effects of the serum on a previously mutated subjects and the reaction of the mutated subject to the hivemind.
Only then will we be ready for palaka worms.

You look at her oddly for a moment. “Rent? You don't need to worry about that. I mean, if Prema runs out of house funds buying groceries or something you should pitch in but we kind of all own this place collectively, all of you put in just as much money as I did to get it into its current state. Anyway, just toss a few good potions the party's way every now and again and you can feel free to live here as long as you like.”

She squeals quietly. You wince almost instinctively. “Thank you Mikhael! Oh gosh, the possibilities. I've got so many experiments I need to try! What if I inject my serum into a person, for example? Super soldiers? We could sell it to the military and make a fortune! It would be glorious, watching our inventions march across the land raising villages to the ground and putting cities to the torch! I think there will probably be a bit of an issue with aggression, my old potion caused my pets to turn hyperaggressive and that was without the materials I have in your world. Anyway, don't worry about it. I'll keep it all under control.”

You suddenly remember that substance you created by accident. “Oh! Hey, do you want a lump of solidified vys? I created some by accident while practicing a spell and it has some interesting properties. It acts like a solid when you apply pressure, but a liquid when you don't. Might be useful. Plus, I mean, it's quite literally solid magic.”

Mortia looks like a child offered candy. “Wait, really? Oh gosh I need to get me some of that...”

Conversation sort of falters after that, mostly because Mortia starts to get really flushed and bites her lip, you're a little uncomfortable actually. She seems to have an unnatural lust for alchemy. Regardless, as you exit the gardens into the second story hallway you come to a stop. “Wait here, I'll get you the chunk of vys I made.”

She nods, and you wander off to your bedroom. Pushing the door open you find that Zahak has curled up in the center of the room, except you don't think he's sleeping. You can feel a massive amount of vys collapsing into his reserves, you think he's meditating. Regardless you step carefully around Zahak and over to your chest of drawers. The lump of vys has sort of melted across the wooden surface but you collect it and roll it up into a neat little ball, taking it with you as you exit the room.

You press the ball of vys into Mortia's hands, and she practically skips off to her room with a rushed “Thank you!”. You're really not entirely sure how to feel about what you've done today, but decide not to waste your time worrying. It's only a few moments later that you hear the door swinging open and slamming shut, indicating that your companions have returned from their shopping trip.

Darzi leads the way, followed by Chrys and Profectus. Skull Kid brings up the wear, holding a bundle uncomfortably in his hands. “Yo, Mik. Do I have to wear these robes? No offense or nothing, but it just seems weird to walk around in pajamas all day. Can't I tell them my clothes are some fancy Rhynian shit, or something?”

Darzi answers before you're able. “Quit your bitching, Thaddeus. They're silk robes, the height of fashion. Now go get changed, and don't go pleading to Mik to save you.”

You almost feel sorry for the guy.

You watch as Thaddeus trundles past like a man sentenced to death, wandering towards the wing of bedrooms where you presume your companions have taken up residence. Chryssa and Profectus follow him and Darzi brings up the rear.

Darzi stops next to you and folds her arms in front of her chest. “Sorry we didn't get a chance to talk about what happened, but I figure once everyone heads home we'll have an opportunity. Anyway, you seem to be acting more or less normally so I don't think there's been much permanent damage.” She shrugs. “I'm going to get changed, I guess you'll be waiting in the foyer?”

You nod. “Yeah, I'll need to greet the guest once they arrive.” With that the conversation concludes, Darzi heading for her chosen bedroom. You reach out to Fulvia via the brooches whilst making your way towards the foyer. {How go attempts to purge the golem core? Have you tried yet?}

Her response as as swift as it always is. Sometimes you wonder if she can't predict what you're going to say before you say it. {They have concluded. I have purged the core of any corruption and have been drawing up plans to construct a body for it. I believe we would benefit from constructing the golem body as a team, all the party members that are magically capable that is. It is proving increasingly complex as I continue to adjust and enhance my plans.}

Huh, she works fast. {Well, that sounds fine. Unfortunately we won't be able to craft the body tonight. There's a party to attend, remember?}

She actually hesitates before she answers, seemingly surprised. {Am I invited? I would not imagine that a human woman, especially not a pale imitation of a human woman, would be welcomed at a Samjan gathering. It would seem unwise for me to attend.}

You really can't imagine where she would've gotten such ideas. {No, no. It's fine. In fact I insist that you attend. Mortia and Skull Kid will both be there and they're humans. Profectus is attending and he's an elf. You'll be attending is well. Now project some nice looking clothes and get down here. Golems can wait.}

Her response is prompt. {Of course, I will be down in a moment.}

That resolved you take a seat on the edge of the reflecting pool within the foyer and wait. You're the only one here, though you can hear your slaves working away busily in the kitchen. It will be their job to collect all the food brought by the guest and serve once everyone has been seated. There will probably be three or four courses. A salad, an appetizer, a main dish, and a desert.

You don't find yourself waiting in the foyer for long. After perhaps twenty minutes the door swings open and Stelios steps inside, calling loudly. “I am announcing Master Karim-”

Master Karim, being the oldest, strides inside first. You stand and greet him. Both of you bow low to one another, touching fore and middle fingers to your forehead and then your chest. Once you've both straightened, he pulls you into a tight hug before wandering over to stand by the door to the dining hall, as is proper.

“-Master Padma-”

After your master comes Master Padma, the second oldest and a woman. She's in much better shape than your master, the trials of age not yet taking their toll on her. The only true indication of her age is her shockingly white hair. She was the Master to your friends Rajani Demir and Hadia Aslan, both of them women. Rajani was always a very quiet, very king girl where as you remember Hadia as a fiercely defensive, almost motherly young woman. Once more, the both of you bow to one another before she wanders off to stand by your master, the two of them talking quietly among themselves.

“-Master Barakat-”

Master Barakat comes in third, the second youngest of all your friends former masters. He wears some sort of elaborate neck guard which encapsulates his goatee as well as holding the glass lenses he wears to correct his vision in place. His hair has only just begun to go grey, he's probably around four hundred or so though you can't really be sure. He tutored your friend Derya Katirci, whom you remember as a somewhat effeminate young man, and Mohan Solak, whom you remember as a quiet man with perverse enjoyment of being struck. Master Barakat bows to you stiffly before joining Master Karim and Padma.

Finally, Master Tarik enters. He's the youngest of the four Masters whom you had frequent interaction with outside of an official capacity. Like Master Barakat, his hair has only just begun to grey. You'd estimate him somewhere around four hundred, but not quite four hundred yet. He wears long black robes with a red collar. Some sort of enchanted brooch is keeping his robes closed. You remember him as a somewhat severe man, but friendly enough. He tutored Delshad Ajam and Ismail Uzun, your two closest friends growing up. You exchange the usual greeting and then he joins the other masters.

“Likewise I am also being of the announcement with the Vatis; Delshad Ajam, Derya Katirci, Hadia Aslan, Ismail Uzun, Mohan Solak, and Rajani Demir!”

Unlike the Masters, the men and women you grew up with are not granted the honor of being announced individually. They enter as a group, each one bowing to you in turn. Ismail clasp your forearm and pulls you into a brief hug as he passes, and Delshad merely claps your should companionably.

You're surprised to see that Delshad has grown a neatly trimmed goatee since you last saw him. While it's not unheard of for Samjan to grow a beard whilst still younger than one hundred, it's incredibly rare. Usually it's considered sign of a tainted lineage, of some human ancestry.

Rajani looks much as you last saw her. She smiles to you shyly and very gently hugs you before joining your friends and former Masters in conversation. Hadia, by contrast, smiles broadly and breaks etiquette by addressing you before you've called everyone into the dining hall. “You seem to be doing quite well for yourself, quite rare for an Aghtaki to show up without a scare and buy a house. You'll need to tell me your secret.”

Her words don't seem derogatory, rather they seem congratulatory, still it rubs you slightly the wrong way. She's an old friend, so it's not worth getting upset over, but it was still rude. Regardless you're distracted by Derya, who's chosen a rather revealing robe to wear this evening, clasping your forearm and pulling you into a brief hug.

Finally Mohan meanders up to you, bows low, and claps you on the shoulder companionably before joining the rest of your companions in conversation. However, that is not the end of the procession. Rather two more people enter unannounced, presumably the guest of your friends. One of them is a short woman, probably around thirteen or fourteen. One of your friend's apprentices you'd imagine. The other uninvited guest is a young woman in the robes of a Master vatis. Not exactly attractive, but certainly distinguished. She ends up standing next to Mohan, clasping his arm as if the two were a couple.

Stelios follows them in, dragging with him some sort of strange stone cart stacked high with covered pots and plates of food. He struggles with it, dragging it up the stairs. You use a bit of Earth magic to help him along the way. Eventually he manages to drag it up the stairs without breaking anything and drags it along on not-quite-circular wheels into the kitchens.

Your parents don't seem to have arrived yet. Normally it would be considered more polite to wait for all of the guest to arrive before joining them in conversation, but you really do want to catch up with your old friends. It's not like your family will know, right?

Rajani Demir: Fellow Apprentice. Though you knew her as an awkward and shy girl, she seems to have blossomed. Master Vatis.
Ismail Uzun: Fellow Apprentice. A cocksure, lustful, obnoxious son of a bitch. Recently started living with his mistress.
Hadia Aslan: Fellow Apprentice. You knew her as a motherly, worrying sort of girl. Unsure of her current status.
Mohan Solak: Fellow Apprentice. A quiet young man who was secretly the biggest pervert you knew. Unsure of his current status.
Delshad Ajam: Fellow Apprentice. A faithful companion. Often helped you study and sparred with you. Unsure of his current status.
Derya Katirci: Fellow Apprentice. You knew him as a somewhat meek, effeminate boy. Unsure of his current status.

Vasuda El-Amin: Close Friend. The Shah's niece. Once, the two of you were betrothed to be married. When you became a Vatis she was instead forced to marry your brother.

Acquaintances:
Barakat Attar: Friend's Master.
Tarik Samara: Friend's Master.

Grandma visited every now and again but you didn't really see her much. She moved to Marqash to be with your older sister, since she didn't think it was proper your father married her off to some distant nobleman in a city where she'll have few, if any, close family.

You resist the temptation to go join your friends in conversation. Presumably your companions are already waiting in the dining hall, at least that's typically how things work. The host's household don't interact with the guest until the host invites the guest to eat.

Fortunately you don't have to wait for long before a woman's voice you don't recognize calls out in perfect Samjan. “Announcing the most honorable Emir Sankar, Patriarch of the Abdul-Hakim tribe, a man of vast wealth and impressive prestige!”

Your father strides through the door, dressed in his court garb. He does not bow to you, as an Emir he is excepted from that custom, though he does nod his head in greeting. You bow as low as you're able, at which point he approaches your former Master. The two men greet each other affectionately and begin talking animatedly about something or other, you're not entirely sure what.

You note a woman you recognize hanging off of Ismail's arm, he brought that desert woman with him, his mistress. You hadn't seen her step in. Additionally, you catch site of Rasim hiding behind your Master's robes. He seems terribly shy, but you suppose that makes sense. It's an entirely new situation for him.

“With him are his wives Hafsah, Semiha, Nadiyya, and Ayda as well as his children Halima, Zaahir, Azra, Pratima, Duha, Chetan, Bahadur, and Samad! We are also privileged to receive Vasuda of the Royal Family El-Amin this evening.”

>> No.38078089

Huh, Nadiyya brought her newborn twins. Perhaps a touch unorthodox but not really, especially considering their age. A mother is expected to cling to her children for the first few years, at which point it becomes more socially acceptable to leave them to their own devices.

The rest of your family stream inside. You don't have to go through the stiff ritual of greeting everyone this time. They're your family after all, and none of them are titled as anything but nobles. Vasuda is something of a special case but she's so far from the throne she lacks a title.

With all of your guest having finally arrived, you turn your attention to the crowd and announce loudly. “If everyone would please follow me into the dining room we have both chilled and spiced wine as well as iced water to quench everyone's thirst!”

You stride into the dining hall, your guest falling in behind you slowly as conversations cut off. You're pleased to see your companions all seated appropriately near the host's table but not at the host's table. Besides yourself, the Masters and your Father will also be seated in places of honor at the end of the hall on an elevated platform.

Most of your guest disperse, taking seats as close to the host's table as they can manage. Profectus strikes up a conversation with Mohan and Ismail, both of whom sat across him with the women you think are their mistresses. You've no doubt those three will be fast friends. Rajani and Vasuda have taken seats next to Chryssa and Fulvia while Hadia and Derya opted for seats next to Darzi, though all seven are seated at the same table. You're... not sure how they'll get along. You can see a fight breaking out before the night is through.

Delshad has taken a seat next to Thaddeus, he seems quite fascinated by the metal contraption strapped to his head. Much to your surprise the young girl you took to be an apprentice takes a seat next to him, you didn't think Delshahd would be the sort to take on an apprentice so early. It's typically considered a bad idea.

You move to the end of the hall and take a seat at the end of the host's table, Masters Karim, Barakat, Tarkik, and Padma joining you. Your father takes a seat at your right hand, while the left hand is left empty. Typically the left hand is reserved for the First Wife, or the favored mistress, of the host.

Wine is served, you opt to begin with the spiced red rather than the chilled white. White wine is typically stronger than red, and you'd like to keep your wits about you for now. You gesture to the serving girl and she fills your cup. As you raise it to your lips for a sip, the rest of the table motions for their drinks to be filled. Guest must always wait for the host to drink before filling their own cups, it's a tradition as old as the desert.

As you set your glass down, Master Barakat poses a question. “So, Mikhael. Karim tells us much about you. You're to be unbanished, are you not? Tell me, what did you do to earn the Shah's gratitude?”
