Tragedy


The brisk spring winds help push the sails of the Fishful Thinking back into port. Several empty chum barrels rolled around the deck as the skeleton crew secured the ship to the dock. Soon after the rumors of tragedy spread into the Darius Warehouse Complex and the Minstrel's Muse. There had been a tragic accident while the fishing vessel had been at sea.

The longstanding member and founder of Darius Holding Company, Lord Luke Darius, had been lost, fallen overboard with several barrels of chum, swallowed by the heavy waves and deep currents.

A distraught Fingal was seen being carried by two men of the fishing vessel as soon as it docked, he seemed alive and not hurt, but rather exhausted, still he would muster enough strength to yell very loudly in what seemed to be Luskan, those who understood the language would know these words as swear words. The missing hat and his soaked through clothes could only tell half the story of what had happened.

Fingal Darius.

A man dressed in grey robes with a grey hood, attire covered in road dust, steps within the Minstrel's Muse and hands Jack a note. He doesn't linger around for a drink.

A young, dark-haired woman briefly visits the Minstrel's Muse. Identifying herself as the private courier Anella Galler, she gives Jack a note before leaving, telling him to give it to "someone called Cicero":
A tiefling called Jalib wanted me to tell you to meet him by the campfire outside the Gate.

Those who enter the Minstrel's Muse may notice a young, bright eyed aasimar busily moving about the tavern. She meets those that enter with a cheery welcome and quickly grabs them a drink with a smile and asks them of their day. Some may notice she isn't the best at her newly found job, yet she is trying hard to do her best for the House that has shown her so much kindness since her arrival in the Gate.

When not tending bar, she might be seen working about the kitchen, preparing food for the customers. She tries her best in the preparation, yet sometimes she gets the proportions wrong and the dish may be a bit bland or overly spicy. Yet, every time she delivers the meal with a smile.

When the customers slow to a trickle, she may be seen on the stage. She practices her song with an angelic voice and mediocre play on her lute. Those that turn to watch might notice that while playing her cheeks grow flush and sometimes she messes up the chords. Those watching close may notice that when she messes up or gets overly nervous her eyes flash a glowing blue for a brief moment. Even when she feels it didn't go well, she finishes the song, bowing to the crowd and thanking them for listening to her.

She always tells those that stop in for a drink of how House Darius helped her to find a place, and how thankful she is because of it.

After the recent Open Stage Night at the White Mask theater, a number of people made their way to the Minstrel's Muse in the Harbor District for a raucous after-party. Word has it this party was held in addition to celebrating the theater, to stand as a bit of a farewell to the tavern in the Harbor as House Darius plans to relocate to a new, larger location with entrances in both the East Gate and Palace districts.

The new location is said to be opening imminently, with the final decorating and inspections being handled presently.

Potential customers would still be served should they visit, but the Tavern is formally closed, with the interior mostly full of boxes as the furniture and possessions are inventoried to be moved.

In late afternoon a number of warehouse workers and dock hands were seen making their way to the House Darius warehouse in the Harbor.

They could be heard discussing bonus pay for a special project of some sort.

Overnight, a loud grinding sound could be heard in and around the warehouse, and it does not cease until mid-morning.

Exhausted looking workers, their garments drenched with the perspiration of their efforts, make their way home around midday - presumably after getting sleep in the barracks within the building.

A young aasimar can be seen outside the Darius Estate located in the Wide. She welcomes people to come in and have a drink at The Lewd Lyre! She plays her lute and smiles to those that pass. When people approach she hands them a wooden coin that offers them their first drink free!

"Please come in and enjoy yourself! We are happy to have you!"

A notice is posted at the doors to the Estate and at the entrance to the Bar.
