"I understand entirely. This will be a way-point world, for resting, and reading, and learning. No chaos whatsoever."

"Much appreciated."

"What is there to do around here, in terms of nice, law-abiding activities?"

The port's pretty busy for its size, so there's a lot of different shops to explore down by the docks. There's a local theater troupe, specializing in historical and 'lost' plays, under Ellayania's patronage, and a history museum. A short walk out of the city, you can get to a nice overlook onto the ocean.

Theater! Hisame loves the theater!

Permalink

They're doing a show tonight! 'The Tragedy of Fiol', very bloody. Hisame will probably enjoy it.

Permalink

It does sound like her thing, yes.

Pascale can show them around a bit more until then, or leave them to wander on their own?

Permalink

Hisame wouldn't mind a tour, but doesn't want to drag Pascale away from any duties.

Permalink

She was instructed to place herself at their disposal.

"A tour it is, then! Assuming my companions don't mind, of course."

Permalink

No objections here.

Permalink

Then a tour they can have! All the many (not that many) and varied (moderately varied) sights the city has to offer.

Permalink

Eh, it's still a new world, and therefore interesting.

And then it's time for the play!

Revenge piles upon revenge in a sordid tale of brotherly infidelity, culminating in a night of slaughter that engulfs half the town before the god stirs itself to fold all the participants up beneath the earth, trapping their sin from sight evermore.

Hisame's at the edge of her seat!

"Theater is so different here!" she comments afterwards.

Permalink

"What is it like in your world?"

Permalink

She describes it - the popular stuff relying on human actors is mostly very aesthetic and slow and dramatic and metaphorical. There's puppet theater she likes more, but it has very different tendencies.

Permalink

"That sounds very Nevarran," Eliana comments.

Permalink

"I'd imagine there'd be some repetition across worlds."

Permalink

"People will be people."

Permalink

"Bizarrely similar people, at that! I wonder if any playwrights repeat..."

Permalink

"You're welcome to search through our records."

Permalink

"I might if I'm here long enough, but I suspect we'll be moving on rather quickly."

Permalink

"Fair enough! do you need a place to sleep?"
