It was finally time. Sparrow found a good clearing in the orchard and hauled all her alcohol to be placed alongside a long log which she had rolled there a few days earlier. The less good alcohol was on the ground in larger buckets while the good stuff was on top of the log in shiny glass jars and things.

Beside that was a skin spread with various bundles of herbs. Many were packed in edible leaves and such. Many were wrapped in marijuana leaves. Sparrow had procured herbs for any occasion, things to relax, things to hype you up, and things to let you walk into your choice of God's domain and claim it as your own... but in a small enough dose that it would probably just make you see bark melting off of trees and funny colors that maybe didn't exist.

The next space held several furs with foods on them. Sweet fruits, fresh fish, smoked fish, and a nice sized carcass of a large deer or elk or moose or... whatever it was. No guest would go without at this party. Pongolo sat atop a branch between the alcohol and herbs so she could tell people what Sparrow had told her about them.

In the larger space, Sparrow had planned on decorating it with flowers, but she had done well to clear the whole area of snow and set up a hefty bonfire. The sun was just setting and the fire crackled and cast dancing lights across the expanse. Off at the edge of the main bonfire, there were smaller fires to light different group gathering spaces, many with a snack and an alcohol or two already set up to be a natural resting place. In the light of the biggest fire atop a tree stump, Friar tuned a tiny lute and began to play one tune, then the next, flowing between them without stopping and if he was honest, a good bit of it was improvised, but it still sounded nice, so whatever.

A large log, cut in half, rested at the other edge of the main bonfire. There, Sparrow had set up two games: a dice betting game, and a nice regular game of spin the bottle. Wolves would be free to come and go throughout the night and she had no doubt the party would last well until the morning. (Please signify at the bottom of your post if you would like to play one or the other) The last booth set up was one by that pretty woman who'd been frequenting Valentine's den. She wanted to set up a kissing booth, so Sparrow let her. Hey, free smooches.

Outside of the main light's fire, a few fresh dens had been dug and a few lean-to areas had been erected. All hosted an adsorbent amount of furs and some protection for any couples who found their way over wayward. Sparrow really had tried to think of everything.

Now that it was all roasty toasty and laid out, Sparrow sent out her call. Now, Pongolo had already invited several members privately, but the call was just for anyone else. The party was open to all loners, Fireside, Abaven, Habari , and some of the friends Sparrow had made along the way- Lynvarr, Jynn, Hana, and Outlaw... and... yup maybe that was it. Other than that, all that was left to do was party and host games- a good time all around!

The Games


  1. Dice rolling- Bet some gems, roll some dice! This game is simple: roll 5 dice and the person who gets the closest to 25 without going over wins! You get to roll 4, then decide if you want to roll the last one. Going over automatically makes you lose! The chip in will vary per round, but starts at 25 gems per round! The winner takes all! Rolling will be done in Discord, so make sure to indicate at the bottom of your post if your char will be playing through the night (you can opt in or out at any time via bottom post text or DMing me on Discord!)
  2. Spin the Bottle- What you think it is! Sign up (signify at the bottom of your post) and we'll spin till everyone's been matched up at least once. YES this means you may have multiple kisses. You can address them in your post, OR make new threads for them! Only kissing is required, but you may take it further if you want, that's what the plush dens are for.

The Booty


Only 1 per char please!
Sparrow has a female Harlequin Macaw named Pongolo and a male Capuchin monkey named Friar. She also has cat claws... and some weird leg spike things.

Mature for drug consuming

Lyric traveled south with Lola on his back, he was here to collect herbs for the stores and for his own uses. He was serious with what he wanted, with what he wanted to do for his life, for his dreams here in Abaven. The pack of his parents. He studied every day, never taking rest as he wanted to do all he could to become the best healer around, ir at least in Abaven if that was correct. Calmly he walked until he found himself in the Orchards. There what he saw took him by surprise as he saw it as a kind of party. He has never been at one before. Could he join? He would try. He walked forward to the party eyeing everything until his eyes fell on herbs?

"Hello, miss? Excuse me what are these?" He had never seen them before. But he wanted to know if they could be used or what they tasted like. Maybe he could bring some back to Abaven? He then would take one on his mouth(Marihuana).

It was spring, supposedly. The lingering chill of winter seeped into Hanako's bones as she made her way north, heeding the call with a bounce in her step. It wasn't every day she got invited to a party and she'd be damned if she'd let the cold stop her from having a grand old time. Life in the Armada had gotten too serious, too heavy and weighed down by broken promises and questionable expectations, she'd always be grateful for the Warlord's kindness and hospitality but she didn't quite view things with the same rose tinted glasses. Was she finally growing up or just getting jaded? Who knew, not Hanako that's for sure.

But more than that, she'd be a liar if she claimed a certain Pirate King didn't linger in her mind, in the shadows as though the Wraith had gone and gotten herself lost in yet another crypt. But here she stood in the light and open space of the orchard, clearly having put a lot of time and effort into making this a party to remember. The sort that Hanako deserved to frequent, flexing old muscles that withered within the Armada's roster. Better late than never she supposed. The roaring heat of the firepit cast Hanako's form in a pretty orange g̷͑̂ľ̵̌o̵̺͂ẘ̶̀ as she approached, warming her from the outside in as she took a moment to shoo off the lingering shivers. She wasn't really sure what was up with the state of the world, but it was easy to forget when the snow was cleared from beneath her paws and her gaze wandered to the mountain of pelts and furs off to the side. Cosy.

Cutting to the chase, Hanako was quick insert herself at Sparrow's side, leaning against the bulk of her shoulder as though she had every right to be there. It'd worked brilliantly last time, why fix something if it wasn't broken? If nothing else she found a sense of comfort in knowing the pirate wouldn't shrug her off or shoo her away, she wanted validation by the bucket load and this seemed a good place as any to get it.

"It's really good to see you again." She hummed, going for the tried and tested glance up through her eyelashes.
Hanako will play spin the bottle!

I'm Trying to Find A Signal Fire

Pyralis had been camping out in the Orchard since her meeting with Sparrow on Fireside's border. Of course, she'd taken plenty of time to go procure some items for the party that would eventually take place. She was curled up in her den taking another nap when she heard Sparrow's call. She blinked and yawned, stretching a bit before climbing out. Ok, party time! Grinning to herself she loaded bottles of mead, wine and ale onto her travois. They'd all been procured in one way or another… ok, she'd stolen all of them but this was a pirate party after all and it wasn't her fault the previous owners got their butts kicked/out-witted by an ancient old hag.

Pyralis arrived to see Sparrow and a couple faces she didn't recognize. Strolling up near the fire she set the travois down. "Hello, hello! I've brought plenty of booze procured in the finest of pirate practices. Everyone is welcome to whatever they want, though this bottle is mine." She plucked a ceramic bowl from the travois and poured a bowl full of red wine. She was gonna need, good grief was anyone in the band older than two years?

"Name's Pyralis. Older than dirt, looking for a few last hurrah's before I take the eternal dirt nap. Who might you two be?"

Recluse needed some levity or at least a night out away from her children. Though she adored them sometimes a woman just wanted to let loose. So they'd been left with a babysitter and the woman would respond to Sparrow's call, sauntering towards the small gathering, her own members were free to join provided there was still a few members left to watch the kids and the pack. But otherwise what they got up to didn't concern her, they were in charge of themselves tonight and any consequences of their actions would be their business and their's alone.

Recluse for her part had eyes on the self-proclaimed king of the pirates, she'd been curious about her since their first meeting, she was easy on the eyes to start... but more than that she intrigued the woman... And they'd made a promise. She would collect a drink first, not too much as she had her pack and children to think about but she was eager to at least get herself buzzed, then with a drink secured she'd approach Sparrow, a clear flirtatious tone to her voice as she spoke. "Looking to be an interesting night," she said casually, "Don't forget I was promised a good time for showing you the volcano." She winked and then passed her cherry gaze over the others, especially the one who was leaning heavily against Sparrow. A slight smirk pulling at her lips, now there was another interesting woman, she idly wondered if the Warlord knew his messenger was so attached to a pirate. She was split on how she felt about if she had aggravated an established partner with her open flirting, on one paw she cared little for if she irritated others and on the other, she wasn't really looking to stir anything up with Sparrow, whom her current interest in outweighed the possibility for chaos. Or... maybe they'd both be into it, which if that was true... well all the better for her. She had always had a weakness for a pretty face.  

"Pardon my manners I'm Recluse." She introduced herself, glancing at the older woman, openly running her eyes up and down her form. Age had never been an issue for her... her tryst with Sparrow's father had made that obvious.

A party? Oh hell yeah, Kai was in. He found himself getting in a bit less trouble lately, not wanting to end up separated from his kids for too long. Imagining getting held captive and them unable to find him.. well, it wasn't a thought that settled well with him at all. Regardless of all that he definitely felt like he deserved to unwind in the form of some debauchery, and he was hopeful that this little gathering would live up to his unrealistically inflated expectations. He was in good spȉ̶̕r̸̋̈́its when he finally arrived at the Orchard, taking in the group that had gathered with wide, interested eyes.

There weren't too many wolves here yet but boy, was there a lot of stuff. Jars and buckets and skins spread with... all sorts of delicious-looking things, some probably more dangerous than others. Drink and food and drugs. His tail flicked with amusement behind him as he strode forward, as confident as ever, the setting sun creating a lovely backdrop against the scene and reflecting the interest in his silver stare as he scoped things out. His interest was drawn to the bottle game - he wasn't sure he was the betting type; luck seemed to not favor him very much. Humming softly to himself he sauntered over and wondered who else might join them.

Come down, come down sweet reverence

Jynn had gotten the invite to Sparrow's pirate party and figured why not show up? She was in the area anyway and she didn't have much in the way of plans except for her goal to visit every territory in Boreas and Auster. She didn't really know what to think of the whole pirate thing and as such she just let it leave her mind completely. It wasn't like she had to worry about being raided having no pack or band and Sparrow didn't seem like the evil sort of pirate anyway.

Jynn arrived at the party. A number of wolves were already gathered, getting into booze and other items while she made a beeline for the bon fire. Ahhhhh now that was much better. She was not made for this cold weather and so far the spring failed to warm up to her expectations. "Hey there, how's everyone doing tonight?"

If this party was anything like Sparrow promised Tyrian was in for a good time. For that reason he had invited Keetie, a crazy new friend who he thought would get a kick of the party while adding to it. She had the sort of energy he thought would mix well with Sparrow and them, and if he was right they'd all get on like a forest on fire. As promised she'd come with him and was at his side as he zeroed in on the scene.

Among those to arrive before him was Hanako, whose familiarity with Sparrow was neither lost on him nor welcome. He eyed their proximity speculatively and noted Splotches' expression. Awfully cozy. Damn pirate swag. Aw well, Tyrian liked a challenge. He leaned over to Keetie and whispered something in her ear before moving towards Sparrow and Hanako. "Sparrow, Hanako," he said warmly as he approached the pair head on before turning his attention squarely to Hanako. "Back for more apples?" A totally, 100% innocent question.

Keetie could never pass up the opportunity for a party. It was an excuse to mingle with any shiny wolf that caught her eye. Perhaps she would even see the disappearing tail of one of her siblings. They had been scarce in her life of late. Leaning lightly against Ty she walked to the shindig at his side. Her tail swaying with delight behind her, and occasionally flicking against his back leg.

Her eyes lingered on the two wolves snug together as Tys eyes lingered on them. She had met Hanako of course, fished her out of a river, in fact. She looked remarkably more put together and well groomed today. Her shiny coat filling in the promise that Keetie had seen beneath her bedraggled appearance. The wolf next to her... Keetie licked her lips. Hot damn. She wouldn't mind cozing up with that stunner herself.

She was given the wolfs name as Ty greeted them both. The whisper of his voice still lingering in his ear. Her smile had grown, and instead of looking devious - as perhaps it should - it looked appealing and sultry. "Nice to see you again, Hanako, and its very good to meet you, Sparrow. Im Keetie." She gave an appreciate look over the pirate wolf as she said this. "Mmm, you should take me back to your Orchid some time, too" She said to Ty. She had never been to an Orchid, and it was clear from her sideways glance that that wasn't the 'tree' she was talking about.

In theory, having known about the party for awhile now, Jupiter should have been prepared. He should have arrived bright and early with lots of drinks and maybe a couple pretty new friends. But that would have required...well, honestly, that would have required a lot more than his lazy ass could manage at the moment. His stores had been depleted by the beach party and he hadn't really gone out much since then so nothing new had been added to his collection. If Tyrian hadn't asked he probably would have held on to everything he had left, but since this was for Sparrow and all, what the hell. He'd bring what he had without complaint.

His cart was broken so today he was half dragging, half carrying a bucket full of rattling containers. Upon reaching the party grounds Jupiter set the bucket down with a clank and looked around. He nodded to himself. This was a nice setup. He approved; especially of the lute playing primate. That dude was great.

Once he got a feel for the grounds and where things needed to be, Jupiter grabbed the bucket's handle and staggered over to the log with the drinks. There he began to take out his goodies and set them among what was already already on offer.

Of course Valentine had come. He'd have come to that beach party too if someone had had the decency to tell him about it. Yes, he was still bitter about that and yes, he planned on staying that way a good long while. Prudish young bastards. He sidled up behind Jupiter, goosed him, and when his grandson whipped around to see who had pinched him Valentine slipped around the other side of him and took a container out of the bucket. It didn't matter what he got so he didn't even look. Chuckling to himself, Valentine took his prize over to one of the logs and made himself comfortable.

NOTE: Valentine has a female striped skunk companion named Lefty. Unless stated otherwise assume she's present.

Lynvarr had been surprised to get the invite and at first he wasn't sure what to make of it. Ultimately, he decided to go, curious how things were going with Sparrow's pirate band. He had to assume it was all going well if she was throwing a party. He was also eager to speak with her about the whole incestuals and god fart things. Maybe he could put her mind at ease. Not that he expected Ashen to be taking off a target list for the pirates. If anything, he looked forward to a rematch.

Lynvarr arrived to a group of wolves of all ages. The mix of smells spoke to loners and various packs. There was an assortment of drinks and he quickly secured a bottle of ale. While he had little interest in consuming herbs he wasn't one to pass up a good drink or too. He spied Sparrow and moved toward her. "Greetings, I did some digging after our conversation mid-raid. You'll be happy to know the new leadership has banned incestual relations. As for the 'god fart' thing. I admit I'm still a bit lost. All that said, I want you know I expect a rematch at some point. I'm sure some friendly blood letting wouldn't be out of the question?" He grinned, shifting slightly into a fighting stance to let her know he was ready to go at any time.

Hyacinth hadn't been allowed at the last party, his siblings hadn't even had the decency to sneak him a drink. So there was no way he was about to miss this one. He was admittedly a little late, time was not exactly a thing he was good at keeping track of but he wasn't really all that worried about it. His gaze swept over the group, there were really only two wolves gathered so far that he recognized, Sparrow, of course, his pirate king, and his sister who was noticeably attached at the hip.

The man smirked and wandered over to his sister, aiming to bump up against her with his hip, clearly more than willing and able to use his size to gently and lovingly tease his siblings. He offered Sparrow a tip of his head and then leaned down towards his sister. "Care to introduce me to your friend?" He asked softly, sticking his tongue out slightly and winking. The man was a looker, it seemed at least his sister had some taste.

The first to arrive was a timid looking blue male. He already smelled of Abaven, and though he didn't look like he was initially looking for a party, but took an interest in the herbs she had gathered. He asked what they were, but before Sparrow had to pay any mind, Pongolo spoke up with a squawk, "Those be drugs- some medicinal some not. The one you've picked up is a good relaxant if you ask me, but what do I know, I'm just a bird, squawk!"

Sparrow barely had time to roll her eyes at the bird's bad jokes and accent before a soft presence thudded into her side. As familiar as before, Sparrow found Hanako buried into her fur. Sparrow's thoughts about the drugs were forgotten as she found hers right beside her. She smiled warmly and tried to steady her heart as it ran off at its own speed. As Hanako peeped at her through her eyelashes, Sparrow couldn't help but take the moment to place a soft kiss at the velvet soft fur on the bridge of her maw, where pale fur turned to pink skin. "It's good to see you too, princess," she hummed before pulling back to get another view of the cute woman, trying to weigh the pros and cons of skipping out on the party to spend the night with her.

Sparrow was brought back at Pyralis' arrival. Ah, fine, pirate party it was. She offered the older woman a toothy smile at her offerings and the promise that they were obtained in true pirate manner. She called out, asking who the other two might be. Sparrow tossed a look at the Abaven man and shrugged simply before her eyes fell back to Hanako, waiting for the woman to give her own introduction.

Recluse showed up not too soon after and Sparrow tossed her a hearty smile at her words. "If it's not an interesting night, then I found the wrong recruits!" Sparrow laughed lightly and then perked at the promise of the volcano, "Oh yes. If I bring wine is it a date?" While Sparrow had Hanako at her side and was happy to keep it that way, they had no established relationship as of yet. She didn't expect Hanako to go moping around all alone when her pirate king wasn't there to hold her. Maybe one day, Sparrow didn't know for sure, but for now she had all the love to go around. Recluse introduced herself and Sparrow gave Hanako a little nudge, bending to whisper loud enough so that Recluse could hear anyway, "They say she's a spȉ̶̕r̸̋̈́it who gathered last year's shed to become a real wolf." Sparrow had every intention of running the spȉ̶̕r̸̋̈́it joke into the ground when she could.

A man sauntered in and found himself a drink. It was good that he didn't exactly come to greet Sparrow, she was already getting flanked on all sides. Jynn, however, was a welcome addition. Her eyes followed the leggy woman as she strode around to get herself a drink and settled by the fire. Another glance between Hanako and Recluse and... yeah... maybe Sparrow was interested in a few too many women... but what was a few more?

"Jynn! Glad you could make it!" Was all Sparrow could muster before Tyrian came up and greeted Sparrow and Hanako, asking if Hanako was back for more apples. Sparrow scoffed, whatever Tyrian's history with Hanako was their own, but Sparrow couldn't help but throw on a sharp smile and a soft nibble between Hanako's ears, "Nah, your apples aren't as sweet as me."

A woman followed behind Tyrian who also seemed to know Hanako. This woman- introduced at Keetie- was a stunner too and Sparrow wasn't sure her heart could take much more. In her wildest fantasy she'd scoop them all up to live happily ever after with her, but that was gay and also a little outlandish. Besides, the blue woman was all flirting with Tyr and Sparrow gave him A Look that asked if they were an item. Her colors fit in well with the family, though it might be good to make sure she wasn't a stray Imperialis from a lost litter somewhere.

Ah- speaking of blue possible litter doners- Jupiter came up. He brought his own goods and Sparrow shot him an appreciative look. Pongolo flew down and around to take stock of what he brought before nodding like she'd done some good deed. Arrogant little shit.

Even Valentine came to the party, but Sparrow was a little swamped to be going over and greeting him. She did, however, give Pyralis a look and pointed that look in the direction of Valentine. They were both spitfirery old people, maybe they'd get along.

Sparrow hadn't expected Lynvarr to come. She invited him because he was interesting and a good fight, but especially since his pack wasn't invited, she didn't think he'd show. As he came towards her, Sparrow gave a short bark and called out to him. He came and clarified some of what she'd asked him about Ashen. Sparrow nodded as if she was really thinking on it- she wasn't. She only wanted to know bad things about other packs! Not good things! Okay, maybe not... She tucked the knowledge away in the spot of her brain reserved for thinking and decided it could stay there if it behaved.

Lynvarr went on to ask about a rematch and asked about friendly blood letting. Sparrow visibly bulked up at his challenge. "You name the time and place, Lyn! I'll meet you in ten! How many times will I have to beat your ass before you decide to become a pirate, though?" She meant it in a teasing way, but she was half serious.

They were still missing quite a few of the actual pirates and Sparrow was keen to notice when Hyacinth made his appearance. When he bumped into Keetie, a lightbulb went off in Sparrow's head. Ahhhhh. Okay, that made more sense. "Where's the rest of the fam? I'm pretty sure half of them are pirates now, and yet only you two are at my party!"



At some point in the party, Hanako, Pyralis, Recluse, Kai, Jynn, and Sparrow sat around an emptied bottle. Sparrow took the time to explain the rules- you spin the bottle and whoever it lands on, you kiss, repeat till everyone has spun or been picked. You could take it as far as you both wanted, or not. The group then went on through the night with the spins being paired off:
Hanako spins Pyralis
Recluse spins Jynn
Kai spins Sparrow



Spin the bottle can take place at the bottom of your post or in a new thread! No posting order or rounds for anything else so go crazy!

Tyr and Jupiter were the only ones who wanted to play dice so I nixed that for now.
Sparrow has a female Harlequin Macaw named Pongolo and a male Capuchin monkey named Friar. She also has cat claws... and some weird leg spike things.

Sparrow had invited her to a party. A... pirate party. Theory wasn't quite sure what to make of it, but she thought she'd give it a go. There was part of her that still desperately wanted to reconnect with the Imperialis side of the family. It was perhaps a misguided notion, but there was part of her that wanted to prove her worth against Rhyme's denouncement. She'd invited Thalia along to the party but was worried she'd talked it up a bit too much. The last "party" she'd attended had been Jupiter's romp on the seaside. That had gone poorly. Strangely. Sometimes she found herself thinking about that dark, slinking woman: Thalia's relative, Felicity. Of course she cast those thoughts aside as soon as they came, but she still had... thoughts. It didn't matter. The only thing that mattered was Thalia at her side, bumping shoulders occasionally as they walked in a pair towards the gathering. At least this one was much, much closer to home.

The party wasn't as raucous as Jupiter's thronging orgy, but she was unsurprised to see a smattering of familiar faces. What she wasn't expecting was Lyric to be there. She gave the younger man a quiet, bemused look. He was more than welcome to come, as she was certain an invitation had been extended to all of Abaven, but he seemed delightfully out of place. Theo nudged Thalia's shoulder and gestured, giving her a small grin. "Maybe we'll have to hoist him home. We'll see." As they closed in on the rest of the gathering, she called to Sparrow overhead: "Hey! I made it," she sang. Theo gave nods and acknowledgements to the several other familiar faces - Valentine, Tyrian, Kai. So strange and funny to see Kai here. He was one of the first she'd confessed her attraction to women to. "This is Thalia," she added, giving her date an affectionate nip at the base of her ear.

This was most definitely not her scene, but Theory had invited her and so she was going to suck up her discomfort and join her. She thought back to the last "party" she'd attended and was reminded of just how out of place she'd felt, like a fish out of water. But she was well-aware of the bad impression many families had over the Abraxas name, and being seen alongside Theory - as an ally, no less - would surely be beneficial to her. So she bit her tongue as any protests threatened to surface, instead focusing on the scenery around them as they made the short trip to the Orchard.

Some of the wolves here were familiar... but vaguely. Hadn't many of them been at the last gathering? Her eyes rested on Lyric for a moment before drifting to the others. They were all so unlike her - so comfortable in their skin, so energetic and confident. It wasn't that she wished she was like them, but she certainly wished she could relate to them at least somewhat, like Theory certainly could. Thalia felt herself deflate slightly, though she leaned into Theory's touch for comfort as she introduced Thalia. She had a feeling no one would pay her much mind anyway, something she'd be content with.

I'm Trying to Find A Signal Fire

Pyralis quirked a brow at a lovely albino woman named Recluse as she introduced herself. Pyr noted the movement of the woman's eyes and a tingle ran down her spine. "Someone check my pulse, please. I'm surrounded by so much loveliness I'm wondering if I died and by some mix up ended up in heaven." More and more wolves trickled in. A tusked man caught her eye as well as trio of brilliantly colored wolves. Ahhh and there was a familiar form indeed!

Pyralis downed the rest of her bowl of wine and excused herself over to where Valentine was making himself comfortable. She took the rest of the bottle with her and set it down before shooting a wink over to the older man. "Thank Abraxas I'm not the only fine aged wine here. Someone has to show these kids how a party is done."



The party continued and after Pyralis had finished her first bottle a game of spin the bottle had begun. She had no intent on being left out regardless of age and wasn't about to miss out on a chance for a kiss from any of the gorgeous creatures at the party. The only wolf she might have some reservations about was Sparrow. Sparrow was the band leader after all and part of her upbringing couldn't help but churn in her gut. This was not the sort of behavior expected of an Abraxas. Willingly following a mortal, flirting and partying like a wretch, but she had detached herself some time ago and had no intent of relinquishing her wild freedom again. She would do whatever the hell she wanted. And what she wanted….

Hanako spinned the bottle and it pointed to Pyralis. The older woman grinned, head turning just slightly away as her eyes fluttered. What she wanted was to be kissed by this lovely young woman."Oh my, go easy on me. Someone so beautiful as you could stop my heart with a single kiss."



Hear ye!  Hear ye! Beware her Ladyship, her Excellence (etc. ad infinitum), Captain Pyralis Abraxas.  Thread with at yer own risk!  This cutthroat savage stands accused though not convicted of heinous crimes including murder, maiming, brawling, cursing, kidnapping and an unspeakable event involving a newt, two coyotes and a distressed potoo.  Ye've been warned!

Come down, come down sweet reverence

"Glad to be here! I'll say you're the most popular wolf of the night." She winked and stepped back as another group of wolves arrived to talk with Sparrow. A handsome young man with saber fangs and a colorful woman caught her attention for a moment before she moved back to settle near the fire.

Jynn drank happily at her wine. spȉ̶̕r̸̋̈́its it'd been so long since she'd had spȉ̶̕r̸̋̈́its. She chuckled to herself, watching as wolf after wolf arrived. Stretching out, her long legs trailing out behind her she spent a little longer soaking up the warmth of the fire before she joined the group for spin the bottle. A pretty albino woman close to her in age spun her. "Ooh, lucky me!" Jynn grinned and took another swig of wine before leaning her long, supple neck toward the other woman.

Lynvarr chuckled at Sparrow's answer. "I'd challenge you right here and now, but I think your guests would be remiss if I too much of your time this evening. Maybe after a few drinks?" It had been ages since he'd had a good drunk brawl. Despite his more reserved nature, back in his homeland drunken brawls were common and half the time they were a mark of friendship and family than they were of actual conflict. It had fallen out of practice in the higher ranks of the clan but was still common in the countryside where he'd been raised. He chuckled and shook his head at the pirate statement. He'd already sworn his loyalty to Ashen though if he were abducted in battle so be it. Naturally he'd fight at every opportunity for his freedom but what would be would be. Settling down with his ale once more he watched the game of spin the bottle but wasn't quite able to bring himself to join in.
