After greeting the High Lord and his wife at the door, Del slides into the room. She appears human except for her blue hair and small red eyes. She wears modest, unassuming travelling clothes, but around her neck hangs a carved malachite pendant in the shape of a cunning fox. She smiles weakly at Terrence as she steps up, as if to say hello, but actually she just reaches for the sandwiches on the nearby server's tray and begins to eat.
The little sandwiches—a fine bite of soft bread, arugula, goat cheese, and tomato—are quite pleasing to the palate. The salmon puffs, Parmesan mushroom caps, and stuffed dates also look quite appealing.
Terrence is surprised—but not that surprised, mind you—to have a fan come up to him this far from Asphyxten. But you know theater fans—they never forget a powerful performance. And with that blue hair, she's most definitely the artsy urban type!
He turns his head away to check his breath in his cupped hand. He runs his fingers through his golden locks and flashes a practiced smile as he turns back... only to find that the young lady is petting someone's—is that a dog? At a human party? Something is not right here.
In a dangerous political climate, several expeditions are made to the infamous Wilds in hopes of expanding the country, Urbane, and avoiding an all out civil war. But, when the lord in charge of the excursions is almost assassinated, tensions increase and put new pressures on the brave explorers.
