  2. Estal was so wary of her hair because of a reason. There was someone who accidentally stepped on it and almost got sent to the imperial tribunal if she had not intervened and said it was fine. Since then, people try to stay a bit away from her when behind her as to not step on it. Estal still smiled, however. "All this talk about my hair is kind of... funny. It feels like something regular women would talk about. You know, women that are friends and spend time together, maybe even go to the city and eat somewhere. Too bad I cannot do that, everyone would lose their mind." She sighed again. Don't get her wrong, she liked being the Empress and fulfilling her family's duty of rulership but there are a few times she wished she could do "normal" things once in a while. Not even daily, just here and then. Spending almost all of her time in the manor and palace could get a bit restrictive after a while, and there are duties here and duties there. It sure was not easy to lead an empire even if most regions were ruled by governors and there was the Senate to help out. Speaking of which, Estal thought that she should probably get more in touch with the current Senate and learn more about its members. After the coronation would be a good time for a meeting with the Senate. Estal's hair was finally in check after a while and the servants that helped out were pretty proud of themselves - the beast was tamed once again. "It's so pretty.", one of the maidens said while the other one nodded again. "Alright, I feel like we are good to go now. The ball is held at Vanderbrant's place, correct?" Estal asked to be completely sure. The Vanderbrants were not the highest standing noble family in Etingnun but they were still famous and branches all over the world, their main one living in Drufalga. Having Drufalgian nobles here, even though this branch has lived here for generations, was interesting and helped to keep amicable relations with the great power even though the Empire and Drufalga were just acquaintances and not actual friends but it was better than being completely neutral.

    Slightly caught off-guard by her words, she could not help but look at the young empress with that warm smile of hers. "I assure you I don't plan on leaving your side, no matter what times we have to face." Not to mention she was glad the odds were on their side so they could be like this. Though her words clearly were directed to Estal some of the other maidens nodded in agreement cheerfully. Upon hearing her companion's concern, Pathrea tried to ease her mind. "We know our positions, both the Guardians and us servants." However, when the young woman's hair became the center of attention (even though it always was, clearly, there was no way it could be ignored) she agreed firmly. "Not to mention that hair is very rewarding to work with." Yet she heard the sorrow in Estal's voice. "Well, yes, seeing as they are so very protective", she mentioned, "they might just step on your hair themselves and engage in a spat with their very own people. Don't get the wrong idea, their high standing doesn't come from nothing, I know whereof I speak, and I respect them, still.." Hardly was Pathrea able to ignore their agitation, not to mention the source and the possible outcomes.

    Arjarc

    The Arjarc are a somewhat barbarian people and do not have a complete government. There are a few leaders, mostly generals, but there is no entity that could be called the country's government. Instead, most areas are ruled by a Chieftain that has absolute control over their area, meaning that the country is split up into different clans that each hold autonomy. However, they can still work together to fend off outside threads or to invade others. Still, most of the time most clans are in conflict with each other - which are rarely personal and mostly because of resources and land - although there are alliances and friendships between a few of them. Fending off an outside threat always temporarily unites all of them. They are seen as a "horde" by outsiders, not only because of how chaotic their troops are scrambled together but also because they like to invade lands and coasts of other countries without declaring a war on them, only doing it to plunder food and resources. The deprived countries still hate them for it and often try to strike back. The Arjarc are troublemakers but rarely attack others because of a devious intent. One of their main targets and something of a historical rival is Lufdurus, especially because they can directly invade them without the need to board ships. They never invade Darcden because they know that a great power would annihilate them if provoked directly. The rise of Darcden has made them more and more careful in general because they do not want to get into trouble with them. It remains to be seen if these barbarians can continue to live as they did until now.
  10. The Faceshifter is an infamous criminal most regular people do not know about since Etingnun's law enforcement wants to keep his or her existence secret. The Faceshifter is known to be a troublemaker and shows clear devious intent towards the Empire which is why officials think it might be a rebel, traitor or someone from an enemy country. The problem is that the Faceshifter always changes his or her appearance, hence the name, and nobody knows the shifter's real looks. This makes it troublesome to even get near him or her. Nobody even knows if it is a man or woman. Some old crimes the Faceshifter committed are: destruction of imperial property, attacks towards imperial officials, theft of valuables and documents, sabotage, threats directed at Senators, disruption of civil order and other heinous acts towards Etingnun. A dangerous individual that needs to be apprehended quickly. (However, even the Faceshifter would not dare to attack someone like a Champion of Etingnun or the Empress, that would be a death wish for him or her). The shifter seems to have become even cockier recently because he/she sent a letter to the director of the Imperial Academy stating that the Faceshifter would secretly join the ranks of the students and do "something big" at the end of the next semester or year. As you can guess, the director expects the worst and instantly asked for help from the imperial palace. The Senate did not lose any time and sent a few members of the Order of the Essence that would secretly join the ranks of the students as well and act undercover to discover the Faceshifter while trying to avoid students being drawn into the whole situation (which will probably happen anyway). Their race against time to catch the infamous criminal had begun.

  15. Yes, she got to this point in life because she was better than her siblings, at least when it came to Essence affinity and her Aptitude and such things which were the usual criteria for a successor, not the order of birth. She was an excellent Supplicant, something she was proud of but she started to digress in her mind again. Estal smiled again when she heard Pathrea talking to herself. She really was the big sister type of servant and her family had close ties to Estal's, like how her father was a butler of the former Emperor - and still is. Estal started to wonder if they would ever have gotten along like this - or even know each other - if she was not the successor to the imperial throne but one of her siblings. Probably not, so she was glad things went this way. "You sure are. I will need that clear-headedness in the future as well. Oh, and please get along with the 'Guardians' even though they are a bit different from you servants." Having a whole group of Aptitude masters solely exist to protect her was both comforting and strange at the same time. It made her feel safer but, on the other hand, also feel like she was a target because their existence meant they were needed. She heard some scary stories about people that tried to go after her father (but never succeeded because most of them were felled by the Guardians or Pathrea's father). Back to her hair, Estal was impressed by it herself sometimes - it was SO long and complex and probably only existed that way because she was a Floraph. She never envied the servants that had to keep it in check and comb through and wash it. "Yes, it is absolutely gorgeous! I do not think there has ever been a Monetiaga with hair like this.", one of the other servants said while looking pleased with herself. She seemed earnest. The other servant next to her nodded along. "It can be quite the hassle sometimes but I am too proud of it to ever cut it. I just hope nobody will step on it... I do not want the guards to overreact and sentence someone for treason or something along the lines. Most of them tend to be so overprotective sometimes." She sighed. The Loyalists were especially meddling and would probably do a lot more if they could, so this was one of these matters where she was glad to have absolute power within the country.

    "Now there, we all are in a whimsy some times. But that's right. And you've got the spirit, that's for sure, it's how you got to this very point in your life." Bringing her companion's hair back to its usual decency strand by strand, she felt reminded of her past, her efforts, her failures. "I seem so wise all the time, don't I?" she seemed to tell herself more than anyone else, mildly chuckling about it. To the young woman's inquiry she responded "Indeed. And, well, as stubborn as it might be, I seem to have tamed it to it's former grace." Arranging her utensils, brushes, combs, hairpins, all those things it needed, she could not help but chuckle a bit about Estal's hair this morning despite having seen it so many times.
  18. Estal returned the smile and carefully listened to Pathrea. She always knew exactly what to say and do - the best handmaiden Estal could imagine. Maybe she really should have some more trust in her people to not go crazy because of a change like that, they should be used to a change in rulership. Kings, queens, Emperors, Empresses, presidents, chairmen, and other rulers come and go. "You are right. I apologize for being so whimsical. I should show some more strength since I am the Empress of Etingnun, after all. If I do not show authority others might think they can use me for their schemes and I do not want that. Father passed this on to me, so I will do him proud.", she said, trying to encourage herself. She already considered the possibility that some of the Senators might want to use this situation to gain more power just because she was young. "I should probably enjoy today as good as I can, now that I think about it. Is my hair in place now?" Being invited to a ball by the Vanderbrant family to meet some nobles was not that bad. Granted, nobles could be really annoying sometimes but not all of them were, especially those with an actually noble nature.

    Pathrea - hardly swayed by the rush of her collegues - went to pause in the midst of her otherwise fluent movements. As she turned to face Estal, smiling warmly she replied "You are no one less than his very daughter, there could be no better replacement. I am convinced that, even in case they are not as enthusiastic as me, surely they harbor faith in you and your ability to be a ruler worth their trust. And so should you, in response, have faith in yourself and your people likewise."

    Old acquaintances

    Falzaar left to get back home while Blazolt stayed a little bit longer, mostly to not make things awkward by going part of the same way home - he didn't like that after you already said your goodbyes to someone. "Might as well grab something to drink while I'm here.", he murmured and left for a bar. He saw a few acquaintances, had a good time and then went back home. Sadly, that was one of his last free days since the semester vacations were almost over and his work would begin soon. Being an instructor was tough, especially with new students who had to be whipped into shape first. And he had to make clear who was boss, of course. He was wondering what the next batch of new students would be like before getting to some paperwork he had to prepare.

    Bleach AU RP!

  28. I was able to interview a truly fascinating person named Kireoki. She is a warrior of the Nezordu clan from Gyondou, a country many of you probably do not know much about. Here is the interview: Sefi: Thank you so much for your time and your willingness to participate in this interview! Say, what is your full name? Kireoki: Gladly, it is the least I can do after what we went through together. And my full name is Kireoki, 27. family of the Nezordu clan. S: That's an unusual full name. Wouldn't something like Kireoki Nezordu make more sense? K: No, you see, this is how we name people in our country. You have the first name, followed by the number that their family has within the clan. Of course, my clan is like a second family but we are not related by blood. To avoid confusion, every blood-related family has a number to see who is related to whom. S: Oh, I see now. That's actually fascinating. So, is 27 a low or high number? K: The number does not actually mean much when it comes to hierarchy, maybe if a family has 1, 2 or 3, all numbers after that are not of much importance. But, to answer your question, it is a medium number. it would be a low number in other clans but the Nezordu clan's cities usually have a lower population than other clan's. S: Talking about clans, what can you tell us about them? K: I feel like that would be a bit much for one interview but I will try. You see, most people in Gyondou belong to a clan, or rather their family does. There are 8 clans that all have different ideologies and mindsets and together they form Gyondou. We may be in conflict once per generation but we need each other. My clan is the Nezordu clan, a highly secretive one that focuses on espionage and stealth operations. We are so well hidden that nobody knows our cities' names and locations. S: Huh, amazing. Are you allowed to talk about this? K: Of course, I did not tell you anything of high importance. S: So, why did you become a warrior instead of something more secretive? K: Every clan needs its warriors, even the Nezordu. We may not have many warriors but people like me are still needed in the case that we have to face others in combat. S: You said something about a conflict once per generation. K: Indeed, the Devotion War. Our country is highly religious and believes in the Cave Mother. We also believe that said Cave Mother has an avatar on our world that is always of the same bloodline. We call this person, which is always female, the Heiress of the Cave Mother. The male clan leader or his son that devotes himself to the current Heiress of the Cave Mother will be the one to rule our country until the next Heiress of the Cave Mother, their daughter, is old enough to be devoted. Then, a Devotion War happens and the winning clan will be able to have someone devote himself to her. This does not even need to be the clan leader or his son but can be anybody from that clan, especially if the same clan wins two times in a row. We are absolutely against incest which is another reason for the family numbers. S: You have a really interesting culture. I wish it would be easier to visit your country but I heard the currently ruling clan isn't too fond of foreigners which is a reason why not many people of this generation know about you. K: It is true that the Kazazura clan is not the most friendly one towards foreigners but they do not completely keep them out of the country, so if you are fine with heavy regulations and being watched by the guards you can still visit us. Or you wait until the next Devotion War is over and hope that someone else wins, preferably the Nezordu. [She laughed after that.] S: Er, I'll pass for now. How would the Nezordu rule? K: We do not really care about rulership which is why we would not impose authority other the other clans but rather have them rule themselves. Basically a free clans situation. S: That's almost democratic but not quite, I think. Anyway, I will be rooting for you. How old is the current Heiress and what will you do if the next Devotion War happens. K: She's almost old enough, so the next Devotion War should happen soon. And I will return home to fight for the Nezordu, of course. S: Ever the brave warrior, I see. How lethal are the Devotion Wars? Like, are they just friendly fights? K: Sadly not. They are like a real war with casualties but we try to not hold grudges against other clans. S: Damn, that sounds rough. I hope you won't fall, then. Oh yeah, one more question. What is living in a Nezordu city like? If you can answer that. K: Thank you, I will try my best. And let me think for a second... It is actually more fun than you might think. Our training already starts when we are children but it is done in a playful way. You could say the training was similar to games of which we have a lot. After growing to teenage years it becomes a bit rougher but we are used to it by then. Life itself is really peaceful since we do not have to worry about members from other clans causing trouble. The old can grow old and children play on the streets. There is no technology, however, so I never even heard about things like TFs and mobile frames before leaving the country. It was a cultural shock. S: Yeah, almost sounds like a completely different age. I don't think I could live there. Anyway, thanks so much for your time and all the answers! Your home sounds like an amazing place and I really hope that Gyondou will be led by a more foreigner-friendly clan after the next Devotion War, so that our readers can visit Gyondou themselves. K: My pleasure. I feel the same and would like to see more foreigners in our country. We can learn a lot from you. After that, the interview ended. I hope you found it as interesting as I did and are thinking about visiting Gyondou if they get a more open-minded clan in the future.
