Aaron Lyonaler was seen in the Palace working with officials to establish a new charity, the Raising Valor Foundation. The new charity is said to have been established to support the returning Flaming Fist soldiers, especially the returning injured and the families of those who fell in battle.

Later he was seen working with the Flaming Fist to discuss the foundation and the gold's use.

It is said that after the festival, the week previous, that an amount of 1.2 million gold has been set up in the foundation.

Come morning, few of the flyers seem to have been tampered with. Crossing out some of the details and filling in others.
Artistic liberties were also taken to the artwork.

A small woman sees the flyers, especially to those that were origanal, not reworked she mutters.

"There goes my chance to perform and rejoin if events are alwways held under such impossible conditions!"

Then she shrugs.

"Their loss if they don't want more members...."

To the reworked version.,if she gets to see it, she smirks a little. Then would take one with her if she can.

((OOC: Now mean to offend oocly. I know that sometimes times aren't doable differently. Just my character reacts since she has her reasons.))

The young Grand Knight of the Radiant Heart is seen even more frequently among the couriers in the Palace District. He can be seen delivering another missive for the Court's eyes. He then takes some time to chat with other Couriers.

At last the only business left is to hand it over to it's master, Jon Smythe [CCSS Co.]. A new ship to be christened and set to sea for it's purpose in trade.
A scroll appears upon public bulletin boards within the City of Baldur's Gate:
Seeking the Creativity of Words
and Rewarding the Result
for a Naming of Vessel
under the Propriety of the
Chionthar Charter & Seaward Supply

~~~~~~~
To wit...currently the first-in-line to a fleet of merchant marine vessels sits upon slipway in the shipwright Thatcher's yard, and in last act before launch a proper name that shall eventually be enumerated, is ready to be NAMED.

A contest, then, is inaugurated, to solicit such a NAME, a reference that suitably represents the mission of the Company itself, that being import/export shipping & travel in haste and importance, between those cities and towns along the Chionthar and Sword Coast with the Lord's Alliance.

For such a worthy name chosen, the chief officer of the CCSS Co., that being in this moment the half-Elven Jon Smythe, the amount of 10,000 gold coin shall be rewarded. In addition, a single round trip journey of choice via the Chionthar, to be applied with one years time from the Naming.

Those interested are requested to submit a single VESSEL NAME, per being. By choice, you may deliver a NAME in person or by parchment to be received at the Helm and Cloak feast hall, until mid-Alturiak [February 15th, 2020]. Notification of the Winner will be made from then.

~ May Tymora bless your efforts ~

OOC// The Vessel Name will have a Roman Numerical added as suffix (I, II, III, etc.) in the advent the Company "takes off" and actually builds a fleet. So take that into consideration, AS WELL AS the characteristics of the Company services (as listed above in the Call). Cheers!

A halfling woman, dressed in purple and maroon finery can be seen meeting with Morris in the Helm and Cloak Tavern. Those paying close attention would note that a lengthy business-like chat was had before the pair would shake hands and part amicably.

In recent days, members of House Vale (including its Head, Steward, and Magus) can be seen visiting the the city's outskirts and asking questions of the local residents. The queries themselves are relatively short, suggesting a simple fact-finding objective, and a modest sum of coin is offered in return for a participant's time. Those who pay attention might note that House Vale seems particularly interested in the literacy and education of their interviewees, as well as their thoughts on the city's various authorities, including but not limited to the City Watch, the Flaming Fist, and the Council of Four. An offer of anonymity is given, as well as the assurance that should any question make the participant uncomfortable, that they could swiftly move on.

From a few days a young woman, a dancer, began to perform alongside the flutist at the market.

Little Timmy can be seen fiercely Training with a wooden Sword, with his sister fleeing cowardly from their undead daddy he is now alone in the orphanage. He seems dead set on becoming a great adventurer like his two heroes from the North, Eirik Stormbarn and his brother Sloki Stormbarn. One could think a lone orphan would be devasted but not little Timmy no!

Edelgarde, who often visits the orphanage to teach the children how to read and write, would notice little Timmy in passing and observe his relentless effort. She would then quickly take note of the two adventurers' names for the next story-time.
