Hey all! This is an invitation to a Bachelorette Party for both Lylan and Niyressa.
Image
(((date: Wed Feb 20th 2200 GMT or 1700 EST, gathering at the Hall of Inner Lights festival hall)))

Please extend this invite to anyone else friends or acquaintances with the brides!! (I tried to reach out to anyone I know they're friends with, but I don't know them all)

We don't have to follow a set agenda, but I'd like to suggest the following:
1) Everyone decide if we want to dress up fancy or in pajamas, then go to a short outdoors adventure!
2) We do a Spa party! Miss Adelaide gave us permission to use the Sune Baths at the Halls of Inner Light! Drinks and party materials will be provided.

We can do both, or just go straight to the Spa party!

I am attaching several scrolls with this message for some party activity and games ideas. Please feel free to recommend anything, add or remove.

Best Wishes for the couple cards: (((Prayer scrolls with custom descriptions)))
Hidden: show
Each guest will be given a card (scroll) with the following:
Image
Please write in your advice and well wishes for the Couple! We will then give these to either Lylan or Niy, and they can both read each one aloud, and (optionally) then use the scroll as a prayer.
"Loose Lips" Game!
Hidden: show
We agree on select words before the party. If anyone says any of the words, we all yell, "DRINK!"
And everyone drinks! (note that Lylan and Niy aren't in this thread and won't know ahead of time! hehe)

Suggested Loose Lips words: (you can suggest more or less)
- love, wedding, family, kid(s), bride, ex- , man/men, aunt(s)

"Most Likely To" Game:
Hidden: show
Everyone will get a stack of empty scrolls for writing.
The first player presents a “Most Likely To…” situation, such as “Most Likely to Kiss a Total Stranger.” Then each person will write down the person in the party they believe will "most likely to..." on one empty scroll. The questioner gathers all the scrolls, tallies up the votes, and announces "the one most likely to..." If you’re voted most likely, you drink, win a prize token, and you also get to come up with the next scenario.

Recommended starting questions: "Who is most likely to..."
- Be the drunkest at the wedding
- Pick someone up at a bar
- Be the first/last on the dance floor
- Pass out first at this party
- Get married next
"Guess Who? (Lylan or Niyressa)" Game!
Hidden: show
For every question, each guest will answer which bride they believe it is. If they get it right, they get a point~~the guest with most points at the end wins a prize!
For additional fun, the brides also get to answer independently, after all the guests, and they aren't allowed to discuss the answers before hand! Once the brides agree on the true answer, we take score and move on to the next question!

- who is the pickier eater?
- who is more of a daredevil?
- who is more stubborn?
- who is most likely to cry?
- who is the messier person?
- who is more of a party animal?
- who makes the better breakfast?
- who planned the first date?
- who initiated the First Kiss?
- who said "I love you first"?
"M.A.S.H." (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House) Game!
Hidden: show
Image
For each category, pick 2 persons/things you want (#1-2), 1 person/thing you are indifferent about (#3), and 1 person/thing you do not want (#4)! Then, for each category roll 1d4, and note which of your choices were selected. Once everyone finishes their MASH prediction, read them aloud for everyone's enjoyment!

"I will be married to ___ with ___ kids and a pet ____ , living in a ___ in ____ working as a ____."
The party, it seems, was a great success! Even if it did not all go to plan, including being crashed by one of the Ruby Rose paladins who guard the Halls, to serve as bartender.

Image

(((And check out this video of the festivities! Including a evidence for all time of Dural asking someone to dance and being shot down :lol:




Once again massive thanks to Serenity 01 for organising this - she put a ton of work in and the event was great fun! Even for an interloper like myself)))

During the after-party of the Battle of the Bards there was a commotion in the lobby of the Halls: two men entered it, one looking very sickly and the other terrified of some evil they had encountered near the city.

When a local priest of Ilmater attempted to dispel the sickly man, his lifeless body collapsed immediately to the floor and a grey metal box fell from his possession. After the other man had picked up the box an eerie and evil presence began to grow and licks of purple flame erupted from him. A quick-thinking cleric of Helm immediately suppressed the evil within a zone of protection against the same. The foul object was hastily removed from the Halls by an employee of Darius Holding Company, the Helmite cleric and a large crowd in company as they ran through the streets to take the obnoxious item somewhere safer.

The following day, a pageboy of the nearby Watchful Shield came to deliver a letter for High Lady Adelaide.

A letter arrives at the Halls of Inner Light, delivered by a hooded ranger and carrying the unbroken seal of the former Moonlady and itinerant Silverstar, Shandril Brightmantle. The letter is delivered to Sasha Marshal of Calimport who is informed it is meant for her and the Highlady Adelaide.

After the news of Luke Darius being lost at sea, Adelaide is reclusive and not seen attending to her public duties as a priestess for a while nor is she mingling as she would usually do around the High Hall, the ducal palace. Instead, the priestess spends time in prayer and with her now fatherless young daughter.

Folded by pristine crease, scripted by masculine, unerring hand, comes lately a letter enveloped in thick, alabaster parchment, a name written in eloquent embellishment on its face: "Adelaide." It is brought to the Halls of Inner Light by an urchin boy; though recently scrubbed, dressed, and pressed, his simple bearing and simple nature are plain among those who discern such things, and so it must be in the Palace District. Asked to linger, he gaily declines and soon winds his way back to city streets.

A familiar face returns to the Halls, now stalked only by the ghosts of those she once knew there.

After an exchange of greetings and mutual blessings with Sascha of the Moonmaiden and Sophia of Lady Firehair, the young Silverstar—and former faithful of the Halls—spent quite a time in humble meditation in the shared holy space, head bowed before the altar with silent dedication. Not, however, before visiting the effigies in the opulent foyer, lighting the candles before each, speaking a prayer for the women who had been her mentors in this very place: Rania before Selûne's shrine and for Alcarin before Sune's, many boons leaving the hierophant's lips for each.

Upon parting, the blonde—changed, somehow, since her last tenure upon the Coast—is said to have left a robust tithe with the priestesses of the sanctum, helping herself to a few pastries from the kitchen before parting, leaving only a few puzzled murmurs in her wake.

An announcement is being made at the Halls of Inner Light that Adelaide van de Saer has stepped down as the High Lady of Sune.

Little else is officially said about it but those curious would easily enough find out that the priestess is making preparations to leave the city with Sir Dural Narkisi of the Ruby Rose as her escort. The parting with the temple is amicable and some may speak of that it is not very surprising, considering the fate of her daughter's father and that a change of environment is just what mother and child would need.

In the days leading up to her preparations she can be seen enjoying the restored shrines in the Palace District.

After a month of silence another announcement is made. Lady Erza de Aldren of Baldur's Gate has returned to assume the mantle of High Lady of Sune once more. Rumours spread that there are plans in the works to refurbish the temple and expand it's influence. Along with this it is said in coming days the temple will start to sponsor and host an order of knights, of faiths not necessarily represented within the temples halls. Paladins, clerics and fighters of holy and good aligned deities are encouraged to find the priestess for further information. It is said the intent of these knights is to aid in the war effort opposing the devils while also increases the influence of the good and noble within the great city of Baldur's Gate.

The Sunite priestess Adelaide van de Saer had delayed leaving the city after some news became known to her. For some while, she kept a very low profile and visitors were limited.

After attending the most recent Ducal court the priestess donated a million gold to the war effort and volunteered herself for the front-line. The day after the Ducal court she was seen visiting the High Hall and leaving a letter with Quincy for the Dukes and General Scar. Afterwards the priestess is said to have left the city along with Sir Dural Narkisi and her young daughter, although none would have seen them leave the city or even the temple itself.

On the first of three eves of the New Moon, the Halls of Inner Light are aglow with the sacred flame of moonfire.

Welcoming beacons of silver-blue line the path to the temple's entrance, and the fireplaces in the foyer are cleaned, polished, and crackling merrily. Food is served for residents and visitors alike in the festhall, and the statue in the entry chamber glows with resplendent moonlight, graced by dancing motes of starlight.

Beyond, in the chapel proper, similar lights of sidereal beauty orbit the altar beneath an orb of holy moonlight: a reminder of Selûne's grace, even on the darkest of nights.

The tenants of the Halls whisper excitedly of a veteran Silverstar's visit, apparently a woman of a kind, charming disposition and noteworthy beauty. Some, there long enough to remember her days in the Halls, speak both of her passion and her uncertain past during her tenure, linking her in friendship and sisterhood to more than one former High Lady of the Halls.

The short sermon she offered, they'd say, was of new beginnings and renewal...

A courier bearing the markings of the Radiant Heart arrives at the Halls of Inner Light. The young man delivers a missive from the Knight Aaron Lyonaler requesting a meeting with the High Lady or any others able to speak for Hall to discuss an urgent matter. The courier would wait to relay a response, before departing back to the Chapter House.

Those who enters the Temple of Inner light may notice that a tall young woman with redhairs and a green skin comes regularly.

She spends time looking at the place dedicated to Selune, and help priestess Sascha Marshall in the domestic chores of the temple. She also help all those who ask, especially as she says smiling "if you need to move or wear heavy things".
