Have fun and help others!
by Crystique L'Amor(Crossing, Zoluren: 92 Lirisa 360)
A faint shimmer of bells emerges into the room. With an impish laugh Crystique suddenly appears before you, seeming to jump from the shadows. She smiles, her blue eyes twinkling, and tosses Baresh a shiny silver coin. The bartender rolls his eyes and mumbles something about "Loonie Mages" and slides the Elf her frostwyne.
"Good eve dear Baresh. I have some wonderful news for you to tell all of your customers." Crystique grins from ear to ear, twirling a wavy strand of long golden hair around her finger, trying not to look too ditzy. "As you may, or may not know, I am the Moon Mage Advisor for the Order of the White Rose... Recently we've been slacking in the amount of teams we were so known for having and have decided to start them up again."
Hunting teams: Hunting teams are basically everyone in a big group, or 2, or whatever, going out and having fun hunting. Maybe some people want to try some harder creatures but don't think they can handle them, well, the entire group can go and it reduces deaths, etc. Also, if you want some input on what you should be hunting for your skill, or if you want to learn better technique, whatever... that's basically what a hunting team does. All money made from the hunt does go to the Order.
Trauma teams: Trauma teams are designed for a group of people to go out into hunting areas and pretty much look for people to help. We also share information on what to do in severe situations, give tips on how to help people in need, how you can help clerics, empaths, whoever.
Teaching teams: Teaching teams are a group of people getting together and teaching whatever needs to be teached to younger(or older) Elanthians. Teaching teams are pretty much there as a gathering place for people with questions, people who want to learn, or those who just want to make new friends. With teaching teams, we're just trying to get people together and have fun and learn.
Baresh nods, prodding the young girl to continue. "Begining on Tuesday next, we will have a Trauma team at noon with a Hunting team at 9 that eve(all times are in EST mind you). On Friday it is the opposite with a Hunting team at noon and a Trauma team at 9 in the eve." Crystique takes a small drink from her frostwynne and smiles.
"Now... the tricky part," she muses. "The following week the teams are switched around(the times stay the same, but the teams are switched), meaning on Tuesday the Hunting team will be at noon with the Trauma team at 9 in the eve, and on Friday the Trauma team will be at noon and the Hunting team shall be at 9." Baresh's eyes cross, but he nods in slight comprehension.
"If that's not enough for you, well, there's more." Humming a spriteful tune, the Elf wiggles her toes causing the small bells on her toe bells to jingle. "Every other Wednesday night, begining next Wednesday eve(the 19th for the Warrior Mages out there), we will be holding a Teaching team at 9 in the eve."
Downing the last of her drink and wiping her mouth with the edge of her fleece greatcloak, Crystique stretches her arms and winks at Baresh. "I know your next question is where will these wonderful teams be held? Well, each team will meet at the Pond in Town Green of Crossing and will go on from there, depending on what those within would like to do."
As Crystique gets up to leave, she turns to Baresh and tosses him another silver coin. "Don't forget to tell them to bring friends, as these teams are open to all and are meant to help all." In a moment Crystique is gone, but the faint tinkle of bells can be heard around the room.
"Oh, I almost forgot... If any of your customers has a question about the teams, what they are, why we have them, whatever.. please direct them to our home. And with that the tinkling of the bells subsides, leaving those present only to believe the Elf has left(or so they hope).
Baresh rubs his eyes and yawns. "By the Gods, I have never met such a lass that could talk so much."
