Endless Summer Seaside Party 2019

Post by JewellRavenlock » Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:17 pm

It was unclear where exactly the strip of beach below (and slightly to the north) of the Seaside Baronial Manor had come from. Had it always been there and kept as a secret? Was it newly discovered? Or had the sídhe in residence--as of 6:01pm Sunday night on the 14th of April--conjured it into being? Regardless of the source of its creation and history, it was there now: a perfect strip of sandy beach bordering clear ocean waters.

And on this little slice of heaven at 11:00am on Monday morning, a party began and there was no intention of it ever ending.

The bodies and bones left behind by the previous baroness were cleaned up and whisked out of sight, and a spell was cast over the entire beach, banishing the nippy April weather from both sand and sea in the immediate environs. Every day was the perfect beach day on the Seaside Baronial Beach, and every day there was a party to celebrate it.

Boats pulled up, dropping off people who waded through the surf to join the fun. There were blankets, umbrellas, and lounge chairs. There was a volleyball net, beach balls, and corn hole boards. There was a bar with cold drinks and a grill running day and night. A DJ played jams under a nearby tent while people danced under sun and stars. The sunset were unparalleled and the natural show was usually followed by a display of fireworks that lit up the night and bonfires on the sand.

It did not matter that the baroness was already under challenge minutes after obtaining the barony, the party would go on as long as it could! The Empress attended the festivities here and there, mingling and enjoying life in the magically early Summer. Sapphire too was there, playing DJ from time-to-time. Creatures fantastical and mythical mixed into the crowd with the everyday citizens of RhyDin, all called by the beat of the music, the promise of fun, and the taste of magic that touched everything here.

Most party-goers did not drift far beyond the stretch of beach where the party itself was most active. A few adventurous (or drunk) people did wander a little too far south under the shadow of the manor far above. When they returned, they spoke about dark caves leading who knows where and a sense of unease that kept them away.

For whatever reason, the Baroness Empress did not wish anyone to travel those caves and find entrances to the dungeons rumored to be hidden within and the manor above it.

This is just meant to be a little something fun for people to play with/into as they would like! Enjoy the party and early summer while it lasts.

" . . . it's even better than alcohol, it's a Blueberry Kale Smoothie! Plenty of protein, rich in antioxidants, plus the cinnamon helps boost your brain power, and the flax seed naturally lowers cholesterol! Best drink money can buy . . . "

The person Gren was talking to had wrinkled their nose as soon as Gren said "Kale" and walked off. Gren shrugged and bopped his head along to the music that was playing at Jewell's Seaside Party. He was wearing one of his socially discreet men's one piece swimsuits. He also had a lot of sunscreen on his nose because he peels easy. Chatting with those he knew and some he didn't, he made sure to give the dark caves a wide berth. Pretty soon they had a sing-a-long down by one of the campfires on the beach, where he led them in a stirring rendition of his favorite superhero Arachnid-Man's theme song.

Arachnid-Man! Arachnid-Man! Does whatever Arachnids can!
Fists of Justice! He's got eight!
At catching criminals, he's just great!
Look out, here comes Arachnid-Maaaan!

Mysteriously several signs find themselves erected overnight, in plain sight for any visitors.

Mist cheerfully showed up to check out the party early Tuesday after a long shift. He paused as he found one of the Nudist Beach signs and tilted his head. After taking in the beautiful scenery under the shimmering of sunrise, he shrugged and easily stepped out of his clothing. He'd brought along a bag with swim trunks and t-shirt, towel and such, but this made it much easier to restore his tan, gone sadly pale over the winter months.

So, naked and unashamed, the tall elf strolled across the sand clad in his hair and the gleaming runes cut over his body. He found a likely place to toss out his towel and settled onto that. He absently spread tanning lotion over his skin then lay back, sunny side up.

More of that curse had come home to roost. ...Though... it really did depend on how one felt about watching Mist wander around nude.
