Yuri and Dimitri each threw in five hundred Gilder to ensure the Castille crew safe and enjoyable shore leave. Yuri led the suspicious group into the Sailor’s District which they had bought out to quell their fears of some Avalonian plot or trap.
Belle had been watching Tiana in the library of the luxurious apartments provided by the Explorer Society. She appeared on the docks sans child looking for Alende, hoping he would talk to Jeremiah Berek on our behalf and gain the favor of Queen Elaine to sanction our missions. She stumbled across Dimitri talking to Twofus on the docks near the ship. Twofus informed them that Alende, Buchanen, Monte and Feather were all on the ship. Yuri and Zander wandered back from the festivities as Twofus was going off about Captain Buchanen and the haunted ship.
As a group, Belle, Dimitri, Zander and Yuri went aboard. Monte was fast asleep on watch in a hammock strung on deck. Alende and Feather were conversing over tea. Belle was discussing her concerns and Zander was pissing off Feather by mentioning the Syrneth. It came out that Feather is exiled from her people, cast out in a sort of societal rejection that her people will ignore her very existance. Berek appeared from the ship’s head, insulted Alende with references to the Castille Armada, and agreed to gain us audience with the Queen.
Yuri was more than willing to address the issues, although he lacks refinement at Matters of Court.
