Attention Travance!

In honor of St. Astrid's Day, and with the blessing of Baron Victor Sylus, the Baronial Guard has decided to throw a Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction of some of our members! In an unprecedented occurrence, both the Knight-Captain and the Vice-Captain have decided to put themselves up for Auction as well! The following is a roster of who is up for the choosing, so look well and get your funds ready!


Knight Captain Magnus
Vice-Captain Oren
Lieutenant Grimkjell
Sergeant Erik
Sergeant Imrahil
Corporal Kardin
Corporal Cyrik
Private Arradir
Private Ebony
Chief Medic Tobias
Magnus' guest Karkat Vantas

And finally, as a special addition:

Sorceress Clytie of the Onyx Guard

Now that you know who is involved, here are the rules:

Firstly, you do not have to be present to bid! Up until the Thursday before the feast, you may message myself with a private bid detailing your full name (OOG: Name and Character Card) and your top bid. This will then be used in the auction itself. If you win, you shall be sent a missive as soon as is feasible!

Secondly, if you decide to bid, be aware that the utmost respect shall be shown to both you and your choice. There shall be a dinner, prepared by Mistress Aella, the wife of Gothi Caldor Eirson himself, for yourself and your date. The dinner shall be free of charge and will likely take place in June, when the weather shall be nicer. That being said, you may bid for almost any reason including getting a lesson! And get a dinner on top of that!

Thirdly, this date does not mean you own this person. You may not order that person to do anything they, themselves, do not freely wish to do. This is a celebration of friendship and hope. If anyone tries to abuse this, they will be spoken with harshly.

Lastly, please have fun! Bid for your friends! For your loved ones! All proceeds will be going to the Guard and to the Barony. All funds gained through this shall be carefully kept track of- if you want to know where your money went, simply ask and you shall be told and given proof.

The time and place for this event shall likely be on the Saturday before the feast at around 1 bells in the afternoon. Again- if you wish to bid and cannot be present, merely let me know and it shall be considered! Sergeant Nalick and I, Allyce, will be organizing it with Seneschal Lois Maxwell assisting.

This is good. I may inquire at a future date as to where specifically it will go to, if only because my experiences with this sort of event have been, for lack of a better word, upsetting to say the least.

*there is a second sheet of paper on top of the first one*

I apologize for the spilled ink, I was not expecting Clytie to make an appearance at this event and accidentally tipped over my inkwell, I won't allow this addendum to end so prematurely.

I believe that I will be attending this, it will be interesting to see how this pans out for the town. I assume that gold is the only thing we can bid with?

Hmm....

Looking at this list, I can't help but feel that some may not feel comfortable in this exchange. Other than Knight Captain Magnus, I do not know who though.

Out of concern for those uncomfortable, as well as my experiences with these events going south rather badly, I feel I may need to participate in the bidding, if only to make sure that nothing bad happens to them.

Sir--or madam, since the writing isn't at all signed-- you may have dates in Travance confused with weddings in Travance. I've yet to hear of a date going south in a violent way.

Midori,

Once, many moons ago, I was a guest at the wedding of a good friend of mine named Wolfgar. The ceremony was indeed nice; however, when the time came to cut the cake, no one could find a knife with which to cut it. So, in lieu of a knife, Wolfgar drew his blade that nearly matched myself in height and swung it downward onto the cake with such ferocity that it sent pieces this way and that! Now, I am fond of sharing, but I tend to handle it somewhat differently than that. In any event, the cake was quite tasty--but you should keep on your guard just in case!

I like to think our wedding was rather nice, Midori.

With that said, how does one enter the auction? Show up?

Thank ye

No offense, but you ARE a married woman. Call me an old-fashioned Kormyrian boy from Glangsdale, but I would feel a bit odd.

Also, I serenade everyone, Kardin....

I don't know how to respond to this new information.

Uh. Well, where I come from, it's usually a faux pas to publicly take another man's wife on a date, particularly when it's around St. Astrid's Day. Then again, where I come from, most men only have one wife and vice versa. And no! I found your company extremely pleasant, even if I was falling asleep during our conversation.
I mean, the fact I was falling asleep had nothing to do with the topic of which we were speaking, but it was solely due to the fact that it was late and I was physically exhausted! I love talking with people, and that me falling asleep should not be a sign of disinterest in your stories! Even though we were talking about one of Felix's stories. Again, not that your stories are uninteresting, Felix, I'm sure you've lived as riveting a life as only a man with four wives can.
I mean, I suppose I should also mention that I'm going to be arriving in Travance rather late. I believe the caravan I'm going into town should be arriving roughly around midnight. Of course, that isn't an attempt to avoid you, or anything! I scheduled these travel plans a week ago!


Excuse me while I remove all these feet from my mouth. Anyway. congratulations, Midori, you won the bid for going on a date with Sindarion. I can meet you fifteen minutes after midnight at the Dragon's Claw, if that's all right by you?

I don't know. You still haven't apologized. You should say you're sorry and then ask me nicely.

Besides, if he's got four wives, it really wouldn't be fair if I couldn't go on a date, silly!
