Greetings Norrathians! Now that everyone has recovered (we hope!) from Brewday and paying their respects to Brell, it's time to celebrate that sneaky, prank-playing halfling, Bristlebane! The Bristlebane fesitivities will begin on March 30th and conclude on April 12th, with special events only available on April 1st.
Kiara stretched lazily and thought again how nice it was to have a day off. She'd been doing so many tasks to fit in with her new neighbors in Kelethin that she was somewhat frazzled and ready for a break. Sleeping in was indeed a rare luxury.
She pondered for a moment whether or not she wanted to get up and start her day, then decided against it and rolled over to go back to sleep...
Right into a giant pile of whipped cream.
Spluttering and muttering some very choice and not very nice phrases, Kiara leaped out of bed and started cleaning up.
She lugged all her bedclothes and herself into the washroom. Or rather, she tried to. Instead she ran right into a bricked-over wall.
What in the name of Brell was going on?
Kiara dropped her sheets and examined the brick wall that used to be the door to her washroom. Fortunately it appeared not to have been mortared in place, but merely well-stacked. It took only a few minutes to remove all the bricks and go about laundering her belongings.
Clearly there would be no more sleeping in today, so the dark elf grudgingly went to her closet to pick out something to wear while she went about her errands.
To her utter horror, all of her pretty, tasteful clothing was gone. In its place were several garish pink and green robes.
Eyes narrowed, Kiara surveyed the rest of her closet. Her armour...
Oh NO! Her beautiful (matching!) plate mail had been replaced with orange and green armour. ORANGE AND GREEN!!!
Shrieking with combined rage and horror, Kiara stumbled downstairs intent on seeking out the guard to tell them she'd been robbed.
She pulled up short at the bottom of the stairs just before bowling over three giggling halflings.
Niami, Ashlanne, and Brenlo each held some flowers and party favours. They each wore identical robes of pink and green. They also each wore identical grins full of mischief and mayhem.
"It was you three, wasn't it? What in Norrath are you playing at?!?"
"Och, lassie. It be Bristlebane's Day, did ye ferget?" Niami's eyes twinkled.
Kiara closed her eyes and thought quickly. Yes, she'd forgotten.
She sighed heavily. "Yes, I forgot. You got me this year."
Her friends cheered. It had been a while since the last time she'd be caught unprepared.
"Are you ready to come celebrate with us, then?" Ashlanne clearly had more pranks in mind.
The dark elf started to grin.
"Just let me get changed..."
