A redheaded lady wanders through the streets of Baldurs Gate with a small stack of posters in her hand. She finds her way to the entrance of the White Mask and tacks one of them up right next to the front door, for anyone passing by to see.

Artful Auditorium, where outer lines preside elegant statues of Gods and Goddesses dedicated to the  creative
are suffused by light and shadow, softly aglow,  thereby found is decorated reseau.  Sequestered away on ledge
nearest falling  water by Joybringer's side, of recent confide is small offering to  venerate  one  unnamed. With
no tell-tale plaque eloquently attributed as per sculptures tall, whom or what small tribute venerates may well
remain  a mystery.  Hickory,  feathers and leaves,  twined and piled by candlelight form a bed  of  the  natural,
arboreal,  whereon lies laurel nesting a syrinx. Panpipes,  carved, would be the pinnacle were it not for berries
fresh  laid on canopy's mesh and the goblet filled with lavish wine, sanguine. It has become a recurrent display.

Over several months the White Mask Theater, creative hub for the artistically like-minded, has seen increased activity;
though rarely mentioned  in casual conversation and slow steeped in rumor for what has become standard observation.
New faces, however,  are seen  to grace  the stage, earning  a  place  within theater  ranks and a joyous  welcome  for
talented members ranging from maidens to the muscled, and heroes, self-proclaimed.                                                

As the month of Eleint drew to it's end,  the White Mask Theater  did ensure one of its  oldest traditions was kept alive
in  the  midst  of fiendish warfare,  or,  perhaps,  in spite of it.  Double  doors  thrown wide in  welcome did  draw  the
inspired public to craft and create that which resonated in echo of  "change"  and, just so, thematically titled. Hostess
for the eve's Open Stage Night was the gossamer-clad assistant director, Oona Siofra.                                                   

Though the evening proved to be a a grand success,  it was not without  its own unusual turn of events. Several patrons
did claim  to see a ghostly figure  displaced from  the auditorium's  shadows at poignant intervals,  leaving witnesses to
question and speculate over the possibility of the theater being haunted.

Whispers hint  at a curiosity grand  in the making,  an evening  event by estimation,  and breathtaking.
Props, coming and going in preparation, are artfully desaturated ▬ the bells of masks carried: ringing, liberated.
What reason?  What cause?  Eyes set  on double doors,  dedicated  to cause,  surmise  "It must be a ball!"

The finer details have yet to be released, though flyers later distributed bequeath a faint idea.

A palette parade, decadent woven in all shapes and sizes; tenday's end drew the eclectically dressed and masked
en masse unto the theater wherein White and Black, the Masquerade's theme, saw opposites colliding on a sea of
sateen.  Aught of performance by lyre,  lute and violin strings imbued  each  spin with melodic  acclaim,  beating
hearts and ballroom steps,  bringing together  both the familiar,  and those  unmet.  Cadence high  reaching unto
ceiling,  a  glorious  evening  with  cheer  far-reaching,   aught  of  artful  auditorium  was  undoubtful  alive  and
creatively thriving.                                                                                                                                             

That  successful  raised in  donation, one hundred  and  eighty thousand, will  be  used in  upcoming  renovation.

Freshly scribed official poster appears at the theater entrance. It says:


In the light of absence of director Oona Siofra and assistant director Herran Hymn, I, Jalib, will be acting as an executive assistant director. Any theater related matters, business, suggestions and so forth are to be directed my way, be it from guests, performers or theater workers. It is a temporary measure until the director returns — she is warmly welcome back when she does.
