The time of the year has come, for the Kingdom of Vallen to celebrate its creation, more than 300 years ago. And how much effort it was put in the celebrations this year! The castle has ordered for the alcohol prices to be halved, the streets are decorated and filled with street artists that arrived in the Capital, just for the occasion. Laughter and cheerful mood everywhere, and on top of this, many spectacles for the nobles to kill their time and make some money!


During the first day, a chariot race is held, where people can bet their money on. The 6 chariots, named:

-Kaien
-Madura
-Nikhil
-Haiku
-Fugakae
-Kurisa

out of six legendary heroes of the past will race, and who can tell which one will win? The nobles are quite interested in gambling though, and the whole celebratory mood sure makes them bold!



Yet, where there's light, there's shadow...King Ignatius, old and weary is sitting on his throne, reminiscing, knowing his time is slowly coming to an end. And when this happens, the realm will be at great peril. Despite their smiles, the Royals had already started t plot and form alliances with members of the court, and were more ready than ever. And in the darkness, even more dangers lurked, that wished to see the kingdom destroyed to its foundations....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Everyone who wishes to gamble on the chariot race will rp going at the Arena, even briefly, and state their gamble in the form of "5 gold coins on Haiku" or something. You will gamble with stat points, and giving 5 gold points, means you bet 5 stat points from each of your stats. I'll roll a dice, and those who have bet on the winning chariot will be awarded double the stats they bet, meaning if you bet 5, you will get 10 to all your stats.

The improved stats will last for 1 day, and will take effect the first day that war is allowed. Those who failed to bet on the missing horse will have those stats missing for that specific day, so it's a good but risky way to get a head start.

You also need to pm me about how many stats you bet and the chariot you bet on!

No battles allowed today, and no open war has broken out, so even opposite factions can talk to eachother almost casually, though you all know what will happen in the back of your minds.

-After some light training exercises, Sonja had gone to a tavern, with a few soldiers, and meeting more there, who raised their filled with alcohol glasses when they saw her, with some cheers. She smiled a bit and waved her hand at them, then sat down and ordered a big cup too. She looked quite cheerful and wouldn't miss a chance to joke with them or elbow someone's ribs, yet in her mind, she was rather worried. She knew that this celebratory mood was only temporary, and a cover for what was about to happen soon. She wondered how many of those men, and even if herself, would be able to survive unharmed. Yet, as she was bringing the glass to her lips, those dark thoughts weren't reflected in her one good eye.-

Zero had then entered the tavern and had been greeted by several people when he did. Zero seemed to be very casual despite the cheery mood of the room, but that was him being himself. He at times join in a few jokes and laughs ,but nothing to major, nothing to loud. Has his was kind to everyone he truly hoped he could stay this way for ever person he met along the rode.

Zero soon then saw Sonja, someone he knew quite well. He smiled and decided to great her, found it better than completely ignore her of course. He'd simply walked to her and said a kind, "Hello" with a smile like he had always done in events like these.

-Sonja saw Zero enter, and it was clear that the people in the tavern liked him. It was one of the reasons she had decided to take the man under her wing, his skill in charming people and perhaps leading them. She looked up at him as she was standing and gave him a small smile-

Hello..enjoying the festivities, a gift to us from our King? -her tone only slightly that of a well-meaning teasing-

Zero chuckled slightly as he her her tone of teasing though it was only to a small amount. "Why yes. It's quite enjoyable though loud. Do you enjoy this as well?" Zero had answered still in a kind but happy tone, the way he usually was around Sonja. It seemed this would be how he always was no matter how he was teased or joked about.

-She leaned back on her chair and picked the big glass of wine in front of her then sipped some.-

We should use such rare times, to relax a bit...they are precious Zero... -her smile faded a bit as she spoke, but then she smiled again, though she gave a quick glance to the rest of the men on the table, to make sure they were occupied with their own discussions and weren't paying attention here, before she looked at Zero again.-

It seems that someone decided they wanted to meet you after all...or, should I say, decided you could meet them...

"Oh? Is that so? I would be please to meet them if they have decided such a thing," Zero had responded with a smile and a calm voice. Zero hadn't bothered to ask who though. It was up to Sonja whether to tell him here or not, well that's at least what he thought in his opinion. Regardless he was glad to meet anyone he could. Better now, in such a joyousness time then later, when battles were happening.

-Sonja looked at the man for a moment, then smiled slightly-

I'm sure you can tell the honor you are given, as well as the amount of trust...this person expects you to swear loyalty to them, and so you will. -her tone then became a bit lighter-

By the way, are you planning to bet on the chariot race? -she asked as she sipped some more wine- I hear Haiku is in an amazing condition, she has a 5 races winning streak. -her tone rather cheerful now-

"Of course. I would assume as much anyways," Zero said happily, but he was clear on what he meant, the honor and trust he was given or swearing loyalty to the person he was to meet. Of course knowing Zero's personality it was most likely the latter, as he didn't like to dwell in how much trust or honor he was given. After all bragging on such achievements wasn't his thing.

"Hm....I'm not sure, I'm not one to gamble, as I have bad luck at such things," Zero had said with a slight chuckle. He truly wasn't one for gambling or drinking. To him it caused too much risk. "But if I had to choose, I would say I'm would choose Kaien, not that I like going against you," He had said with a kind smile.

Hah! -Sonja chuckled and sipped some more- Well, this sure will be interesting...after all, it won't be just that...some sources say, there will also be a gladiator fight too, you know? -her tone playful then- I wonder if you will be asked to participate too, or if you have become too "precious" for that, Zero~ -she winked at him, clearly a bit drunk and emptied her cup-

"Haha, sadly I would have to decline that, as I would rather no participate in such a thing," Zero responded with a kind laugh. He was used to such thing as this from Sonja by now. He truly didn't want to participate in such an event since he, ironically, didn't like fighting much. He put that point aside though and noticed Sonja's slight drunkenness. "Perhaps you shouldn't drink much more. Though it is a rare festive event, it may not be best not to enjoy it too much," Zero had said kindly, but he was merely suggesting rather than outright tell, such was his personality.

-She laughed, hearing what Zero said- My dear Zero, should the King or Royals decide to summon you, I doubt your opinion would matter much...just like it happened the previous times after all...well, don't worry too much, you always seem to come out alive, so~ -she chuckled, then ran her fingers through her hair- Naah, what's a celebration if you don't do something out of the ordinary after all? -her tone cheerful as she stood up- Thinking about going out for a walk...care to join?

*Caitlyn walked around the streets looking at the festivities and smiling as she spoke to the children handing them sweets and telling them not to tell anyone. She sure did love festivals. They seemed to bring out the best in people and to her this made her think that there may actually be hope for them all. She then froze as she heard the rowdiness coming from the local watering hole and grimaced. Festivals may of brought out the best in people but they also brought out the worst in people. Deciding to move on she kept handing out free sweets to all the children she could find.*

"Haha, you pose a point for both. Sadly, I somewhat to simple to do out of the ordinary things," He replied with a kind and happy laugh along with a smile. Zero was in fact a simple person. He never really asked for much or need much. He went by orders and what was necessary and that was it.

Zero stood as well. "Of course I shall. In fact I would love to," He responded happily. He had enjoyed the company of other, especially those he knew.

-She laughed, then left 2 silver coins on the table, before heading out, followed by Zero. She enjoyed the atmosphere, that allowed her to relax and even act a bit unlike her position, to mingle with the commonfolk and share their ways of having fun. Surely, nothing seemed able to disrupt this joyous period. She even saw a woman giving sweets to children in a distance and smiled at the sight, then kept walking slowly, in a relaxed manner.-

So, what have you been up to, Zero? -she asked with a smile, her eye darting here and there, to not miss anything-
