(On the roadway towards the royal city of Asra)

A convoy party from Starnhein province are on their way to Asrean Palace to attending the king's banquet ceremony. At the center of the convoy, an armored yet lavishly carriage which Prince Varius are in his seat inside; accompanied by his two trusted retainers, Acteon and Avynil, along with 50 knights and few hundreds of guardsmen. "Are we there yet?" Varius sighs from within his carriage. He feels uncomfortable whenever he was in dirt roads. "We're still halfway my lord, please be patient", his adviser Avynil assured the prince. Varius frowns silently, "Avynil, you know i don't like to be meeting with new people, especially in crowds...it's kinda make me dizzy every time...". Avynil speaks with adversely- fatherly tone, "My lord, being with new people is the important part of being a ruler, and it's you...you must uphold your reputation as the Prince when making the audience with the King.."
The young Prince pouting and mumbles like a little child. Then Acteon, his companion softly whispers near the carriage where the prince was inside, "Don't worry my Prince, after we reach inside the city, we can 'explore' the markets and maybe do some 'merchandising' together..how about it my Prince?". Prince Varius slowly smiles, he knew what his best friend meant about exploring the markets; the prince love commerce and trading; and he carries a lot of money to spend with..

---The Road To Asra---


The sun was barely breaking the horizon when a large procession marched through the cool sands of the South. Masked soldiers, wearing elaborate armors made of a combination of metal and cloth and armed with a myriad of weapons from standard swords to those long metallic and wooden tubes called muskets traded in from a distant land beyond Estal, can be seen marching in a uniformed formation surrounding a very luxurious carriage pulled by four armored camels. Armored horsemen can be seen a good distance away, surrounding the formation acting as spotters and escorts for the group. Behind the formation are a group of finely decorated wagons which are also escorted by soldiers and horsemen. Most of the wagons contain elaborate boxes filled with spices and herbs, rolls of fine carpets and furs, casks of the finest wines and ales, as well as other treasures and luxury items that are fit for a ruler--a king. Some of the wagons do not hold goods, instead old men and young boys can be seen riding on some of these wagons. They are dressed with simple white clothing with sashes of different colors worn over their person; most of them are praying via blessed beads, some of them were practicing simple magical exercises while on the wagons, and a few were resting since it was still early in the morning.

Inside the carriage, guarded by the Multhaz family's elite retinue outside, there sits Aldaris contemplating on the journey ahead while sipping some wine from a glass goblet. To his sides sat Ashara and Hasna, his most loyal companions and lovers. Ashara was reading a book while leaning on to Aldaris' side and Hasna has her head on his shoulder while she was fast asleep since the journey to Asra would take a good amount of time before they could reach the border. A companionable silence permeated inside the carriage. The only constant sound were Hasna's soft breaths and the marching outside.

"Ashara?" Aldaris' deep, soft voice broke the silence within the carriage.

"Yes, my beloved lord?" Ashara closes her book and regarded Aldaris with a curious look.

"I...It's nothing. Just have a few things in my mind." he turned his head to the side before sipping his wine once again. He then discarded the glass to the side after he finished off the content with ease.

"Do you want to talk about it? If there's anything bothering you, you have Hasna and I to help out..." her gaze softened considerably, a look of concern crosses her face.

"It can wait. We can talk about it when we get back home after this banquet. However, I have to ask, what are your thoughts about this banquet? It's a bit strange for this annual gathering to be held at this month. Normally, he would start the preparations for such a thing next month. This got me wondering, that's all." he said as he turned to face Ashara; he placed his hand on her cheeks, caressing her with his thumb before letting go; he pulled her closer to him and rested his head on her shoulder.

Ashara leaned in to his touch before resting her cheek on his head. She took a moment to think of her answer before replying softly as to not disturb Hasna's rest, "This is just my speculation, but I believe something has happened to warrant such an invitation. The King is old, don't get me wrong my lord the King is a good ruler---fair even---but with his body failing him with each passing day...it's only a matter of time before he leaves for the next life. This might be his last opportunity to speak with each and everyone of you who are his vassals."

Aldaris was silent as he listened to Ashara's explanation. It made sense actually. The Old King would meet Death soon, for Time is a greedy mistress. The King would most likely inform the lords if something did happen in the future; thus it s a wise decision to come after all. He slowly nodded his head in agreement to Ashara's explanation. "You might be right, Ashara. I will hold my assessment for now. I want to see what exactly is going on before anything can be properly decided, isn't that right Ashara?"

Ashara nodded her head before she gave out a soft yawn. She felt Aldaris puller even closer to his side. Ashara heard a soft chuckle before she felt a pair of lips graze the top of her head. "If you need to rest, rest. I don't want my most trusted aide to drop dead on me when meeting the King."

She nodded once again before succumbing to sleep; leaving Aldaris to enjoy the relaxing and silent trip.

((I'll start thr rp first, is that okay?))

Meanwhile...

A scout rushes galloping to Varius' convoy, giving attention to the party, "My lord, there's another convoy headed from the south..". Avynil tilted his head, "The South, who's convoy is that?" commands the Adviser, "It's Lord Aldaris of the Multhaz Family, your excellency.." Then a voice came from inside the carriage, "What is it, Avynil?"..the Adviser then gives a silent smirk, and then goes to his lord.."It's time for you to introduce yourself for the first time my lord..a convoy from the south also are on their way to the capital and they're actually 'bumping' into us right now..." the Prince frowns..."Avynil...im-" the Adviser cuts in.."and that convoy's look luxurious..." the prince's head quickly tilt outside his carriage window, scanning the other convoy.."Where?!?!"
The Prince was now looking at the lavishly decorated convoy headed through their roadways, with his wide eyes...Acteon chuckles the way his lord's expression. From a simple childlike Varius until the prince turns to grin, "Lets meet them Avynil, i want to introduce them!.." excited the prince..the Adviser only shakes his head and sigh.."Please well behave, my lord..."
And the rest of the convoy goes to the southern convoy for greeting..

---Of Lords and Princes: A Meeting---


As the trio relaxed within their carriage, a quick soft knock was heard from the carriage window. Seeing Ashara and Hasna still asleep, Aldaris slowly moved closer towards the carriage window and regarded the masked Janissary curiously. "Speak, soldier. Why have you disturbed the peace?"

The soldier gave a quick salute before responding with a clear voice, "Noble One, the Cataphracts report a convoy from the North approaching our position."

Aldaris regarded the soldier for a moment before turning his gaze out in to the open. "A convoy you say? To whom does the banners fly, soldier?"

"The banners bear the crest of Prince Varius of Starnheim, one of the Northern lords."

"I have heard of him, somewhat. An enigmatic lord from the North as most people within my circle of society would peg him to be. Have they hailed us yet?

The soldier shook his head, "They have not made contact with any of our scouts, Noble One."

Aldaris nodded his head before he gave out an order, "Tell the men to divert our course. Let us meet this Princeling..."

The whole company diverted their course to meet up with the party from Starnheim. After a few minutes, the two parties were travelling side by side. Aldaris couldn't help but compare the differences of the two parties. For one, this princeling only brought a nominal retinue unlike his own which is ten times larger than the princeling's own. He theorized that in a fight his forces would have the number advantage but the quality of his units cannot be compared with the princeling's own since he didn't want to start a fight right now. He also took note the difference in wealth between them. The princeling's convoy is a pretty sight, tastefully decorated and tailored for a person of his status; but unlike his own, Aldaris' own convoy could be mistaken for the King's Convoy due to the overwhelming amount of wealth being put on display.

His musing was cut short when the two parties stopped to rest for the day. He has to admit, it would take at least two days before they could reach Asra in time for the banquet; so he wasn't in a rush at the moment. He quickly woke Ashara and Hasna from their slumber and informed them of the situation. The trio quickly freshened up before exiting their carriage to greet the princeling and his entourage.

"My warmest regards to you, princeling. I am Aldaris Za'firo Multhaz al-Kehth, Lord of A’ras Kehth; and these two are my most trusted companions, Ashara my aide and Hasna my trusted sorceress." Aldaris greeted the Northern delegate with a flourish.

The two convoys stopped facing each other on the middle on the roadway, meeting to greet with each other, a party of four approaches to Lord Aldaris and his retainers. Two vassals accompanied a wooden-wheeled stylized chair, on which the prince who was seated. the guardsmen pushes the wheelchair so it can be easily movable and presentable , while a standard bearer stands at the back of the Prince; carries the dark purple flag with a crest of black dragon with a silver crown upon it's head. Varius smiles shyly at the merchant lord. Silent whispers goes by then and later Avynil tries to break the ice, "Greetings to you too my lord Aldaris, my name is Avynil Hyral, Steward of the Prince, and my left companion here is Commander Acteon Hyral...it's been pleasurable to meet such a wonderful yet glittering lord from the Southern Region. We Northerners have a highly respect and awe for your people.." courtesy the Adviser. Acteon only smiles and nod. Prince Varius then finally speaks up shyly.."My name is Prince Varius Baralin Strallvania, 23rd Prince of Starnhein, it's pleasure to meet you.." the prince only fidgeting and blushes in embarrassment..Avynil sighs and said to Lord Aldaris, "Please forgive my prince's formality, he's a bit...shy when meeting a new person..it his first time he was outside in his holdings...and he stays for to long for that..".."Hey,...i'm still wonders around you know.." the prince's trying to object, and turn his face slightly turns pink..

---Of Lords and Princes: Conversations and Rests---


Aldaris couldn't help the smirk from forming on his face and the deep, throaty chuckle escaping his lips. Ashara's face remained passive though amusement shines within her eyes while Hasna giggled a bit at the Northerner's greeting and the prince's shyness. It was refreshing to see someone who acts like this unlike those snobbish lords and royals. "Your words are flattering, Commander Acteon; and it's a pleasure to meet you as well, Prince Varius Baralin Strallvania. You Northerners are good business partners in business. Valuable traders with connections to the best mines in the land." he said while bowing his head slightly.

"Indeed, the North has contributed a good amount of trade within the region in the past year. It also pays to have good relations with your trade partners as well." Ashara said as she stood at Aldaris' side.

"That is indeed true, beloved." Aldaris nodded his head; and minutes later he scrunched up his face in wonder before he turned to Ashara, "Ashara, order the men to settle down and prepare the tents for us and our guests. We will have to stay here for now and recuperate before we can continue on our journey to Asra."

"At once, my lord." she said as she quickly approached the men and did as she was told.

"I will assist Ashara with the preparations, my lord." Hasna said as she faced Aldaris with a small smile on her face.

Aldaris nodded in agreement before Hasna joined Ashara in preparing the camp. He turned to the Northerners and addressed them, "Come, share my hearth and wine. We shall rest here for the time being as our men recuperate their strength." he said as he led them to the multitude of tents that were quickly and efficiently set up by his Janissary Corps.

The Adviser Avynil smiles charmingly "You are flattering us to much, my lord..especially my prince here,," glancing at the prince.

Prince Varius was now in trance, excited to see the Southerners are preparing the tents.

Avynil continues, "Please my prince, Lord Aldaris is inviting us..." the Adviser bows to his lord.

The Northerners begin to greet the Southerners as if they were known friends, greeting happily and merrily. They're also helping Lord Aldaris men to setting up the tent and getting to known each other.

Varius' another vassal, commander Acteon goes to the prince and bows, signalling to follow Lord Aldaris as his guest. Varius nods and simply gets out from his wheeled throne and walks quickly to get near the merchant lord. "Thank you for your hospitality, Lord Aldaris, and thank you for inviting me to your...uh..camp?.." the prince squeaked. Varius is trying to relax his composure and being regal. And when the both lords are inside the tent, Avynil snapped his fingers signalling an order. Later then, a few dozen of guardsmen carrying several large chests and put in front of the Southern lord. The guards opens the chests and inside contains of shining silver objects embed with jewels and pile of silver bars worth millions of El coins.

"Finest crafts made by the silversmiths from the North, please accept our gift as a sign of goodwill and friendship between the two provinces, or rather two of the opposite regions.." Avynil said warmly, while prince Varius smiles with twinkle in his eyes..Then suddenly, a flying creature swiftly comes within Aldaris tent, finding Prince Varius and clinging at the prince's shoulders; it was his pet infant dragon, Mios..it purrs while it's azure blue-scaled skin rubs it's master's head.

"Ohh, and this is my little friend, Mios..he squeaks a lot" Varius tickling the baby dragon's head.

---Of Lords and Princes: Gifts and Friendships---


"I thank you for this generous gift, Prince Varius. It is only customary to return such generosity as well." Aldaris said in a serious and polite tone before clapped his hands together and several masked soldiers took the offered chests. Two masked soldiers came towards them carrying two wooden chests. They both set them down in front of the Northern delegation and slowly opened both chests. The chests contain rare spices and herbs that were grown inside his personal gardens. "I present to you my finest and rarest spices and herbs, grown within the confines of my personal gardens. No one else can reproduce the quality of these herbs and spices and thus are worth a fortune to acquire."

"That is true. My lord's spices sell for the most lavish of prices from the foreign merchants that pass through. None have managed to acquire even a sample of these spices and herbs due to the...sub-par offers." Ashara commented as she took a seat to her lord's right. A bronze goblet of wine in her hand.

"Yup! My beloved lord truly is one of a kind in the mercantile field. An explorer, a merchant, a warrior, a practitioner of alchemy, and a statesman to boot! Plus, a very talented lover." Hasna playfully finished as she sat on her lord's left.

The trio noticed a blue, infant dragon approach Varius. It was a beautiful creature, but it wasn't his type. Aldaris preferred predatory birds with the sharpest of eye sights instead of a mythical dragon; more practical in his opinion. He heard Ashara comment on whether or not the tent would hold of an infant dragon would discharge and if it could stand up to the Multaz's Red Hawks, especially against the battle-scarred hawks Taier and Izha; while Hasna turned to him and begged him to find a dragon like the one before him for research.

Aldaris couldn't help but laugh at the ridiculousness of his two companions. After a few minutes of laughing merrily, he leaned in and kissed Hasna on the cheek. He also gave one to Ashara for she was pouting at the sight before her. "Well, there's that. A lovely specimen and what a beautiful shade for an infant's scales. But before we would deal with anything else, let us eat and be merry." He then clapped his hands again and a multitude of plates and trays filled to the brim with luxurious meals and treats were presented before them. "Come, enjoy this feast as a sign of my peace and generosity. A hearty meal for the hearty guest!"

After he said this, he saw Ashara holding a slice of sweet mangoes; he leaned in close and bit down on the offered fruit and gave her a quick kiss as thanks before returning the favor with a piece of grape. While Aldaris and Ashara fed each other, Hasna took the time to enjoy the sweets and wine before joining in pampering her lord and her receiving attention as well.

The prince eyes twinkle in awe to see such rarity of gifts given by the southern lord "We're humbly and gladly accept your gifts, Lord Aldaris.." Prince Varius said warmly, he is now sitting near Lord Aldaris, the prince nods his guardsmen to carry out the gifts outside..Varius then received a glass goblet which contains a very aromatic wine from the southern maids. The prince try to sniff the wine first; it was tingy, yet very pleasant fragrant...and then he sips the wine, his eye's went wide, he licks his lips enjoying it.."Oh my, i have never taste this wine that was so sweet, spicy and yet another indescribable aroma, Lord Aldaris...may..i require what type of this delicious wine is this?"..the prince cheeks turns little red of embarrassment.

Commander Acteon however, who was sitting next to his lord and his uncle, the adviser Avynil on the left. Acteon is also enjoying eating the exotic fruits and dishes that served in front of them, even the commander give a little feeding to Mios that still clinging on Varius shoulder. The tall commander cannot take his eyes of his lord,, Prince Varius. Acteon is staring at his lord's lips sipping the wine as he wish he's the only one who wants to serve his beloved prince, but then he only sighs..

The Adviser Avynil continues to having a conversation in more politely and diplomatically way; "my Lord Aldaris, how fare is your province and is there any news that regards to King's banquet lately?" as the adviser sips his wine.

---Of Lords and Princes: Gifts and Friendships---


"Ah, you've tasted our special wine. It's a mixture of the purest red wine and some spices that enhances the flavor of the brew; and I never got to name it properly really. But everyone calls it "Desert Spring" for the taste and feel it has; so the name just stuck." He said to the prince as he took a sip from his own goblet.

Aldaris turned to Avynil and regarded him for a moment before responding, "Hmm, my lands are growing richer as the day go by. With access to the ports and the lucrative trade agreements keep the treasury afloat. Regarding the issue of the King's banquet, all I know is that it has started a bit early than usual. I speculate something might have happened which warrants the lords and royals to attend. How about you, Adviser Avynil, what are your thoughts on this matter?"

Ashara nodded her head as she took a sip from her goblet. "Indeed. My lord has speculated a lot of things regarding this matter; but all will be put to rest once we reach the capital. What are your thoughts on the matter, friends from the North?"

Hasna nodded her head in agreement. "That is true. I too don't know what exactly is going on, even if magic is involved...I can't get a read on the situation. Do you know what's going on as well?"

Aldaris took a quick peek through the tent's flaps. He took note that the day has come to greet them properly now. He turned to his companions and guests before addressing them, "Once we are done here, I suggest we pack up and continue on our journey. After, the King has issued our arrival and it is rude to keep him waiting."

((after this post, i'll make another rp in the prologue thread))

"Ahh i see, it's very delicious name indeed.." chuckled the prince. Varius then tries giving the wine for his little friend, Mios to taste a sip; and he did sipping the wine~until it's baby dragon face turns pink..

Meanwhile Avynil responds to Lord Aldaris; "Yes, you are right, my lord Aldaris..it is a bit early for the King make a feast, especially in his old age i think... it's posiible that the King wants to make an important decision or proclamation to us lords across the land...but it is only my opinion, my lord.." the Adviser sighs. After a merely rests and dwindling, its time to packing and gathering up for continuous journey. The prince had a wonderful meeting with his first encounter with with another lord, which makes him more social...a bit..Varius then goes to Lord Aldaris for a farewell bid before depart, still fidgeting.."thank you again for a wonderful meal and rest, Lord Aldaris...i..umm enjoyed as much..and..umm..er.. you're the first lord friend i have and trust...er.. take this as my personal gift to you Lord Aldaris.." the young prince shove a piece of magical accessory; it's a glowing crystal amulet~ a suitable artifact to conceal summoned creatures. Varius then rushes get out from the tent in embarrassment.

Avynil however surprise to see his young lord..he then goes to Lord Aldaris and bows before he also depart.."Prince Varius has never shows any emotions to anyone before, he made you his first 'trusted friend'... i bid you farewell, Lord Aldaris and maybe we will be meeting again at the King's banquet.." then all the Northern delegation get ready their convoy and starts marching towards Asra

*After several long minutes, you hear a single knock on your door. Behind the door was Bo Zhi. He was holding the bouquet of white roses that Princess Vivienne left behind by accident due to all the commotion from earlier.*
