The Cooking Guild of Adria
Gaja posted a topic in Duchy of AdriaThe Adrian Cooking Guild 5th of Sigismond’s End, 1909 AST With the ending of the Grand Adrian Duma of 1909 many new institutions were brought to the Adrian peoples, the most notable being the guild of chefs, bakers, sauciers, stir-fryers, and etcetera. More simply known as the Adrian Cooking Guild. Its founding members set out with the purpose of cataloging and preserving the many recipes of the ancient duchy and to of course encourage an increased interest in the arts of Adrian cooking. Guild Founders Baron-Mayor | Stefan Euler Proud son of Adria, Stefan Euler descended from an old Adrian family and has dedicated his life to the culinary craft. Many of his recipes come from his 'old lady', referring to his grandmother. An avid enjoyer of meats, Stefan is learned in the ways of seasoning and preparation and has made a name for himself as the tavernkeeper in Velec. People have come from all over the realm to enjoy his meals, and he has taken a great liking to seven-course meals to truly highlight his skills and versatility. An inventive chef, he has pioneered many new meals that are now staples of Adrian cuisine--such as his much renowned Whale Steak. As a member of the Council of Chefs, Stefan seeks to preserve the traditional meals of Adria, as well as bring in new cultural influences from all over. Lord | Paul Francis Varoche Descendent of the Varoche family and born within their homeland of Illatia, Paul immigrated to Almaris at just ten years of age; holding tightly to the traditional methods passed along through the family of roaches. From wines and cheeses, to multiple course meals, he would be considered quite the connoisseur. Specializing in butchery and traditional Illatian dishes, Paul's popularity as a chef has garnered him quite the reputation throughout the lands of Aaun and beyond. Whether being served food and drinks by him, or simply sitting at his table, your palate should be prepared for quite a grandiose evening. Within his role upon the Council of Chefs, Paul plans not only to return discipline to the kitchen, but to emphasize passion, skill, and intrigue as intricate ingredients necessary to preparing a dish that will make you scream, "Ammazza!" Lady | Lorina Varoche Born to Lord Chancellor Sigismond Varoche and into a long line of culinarily gifted individuals, Lorina Varoche was born with the talents of her ancestors. Being just the juvenile age of 11, she has more than proven her prowess within the industry of food. Primarily a baker, the youthful Varoche is the characterization of intelligence, compassion, and culinary expertise. While not only competent with foods, Lorina has also published a cookbook containing traditional Adrian cuisine, it rumored to be the first of a series. If Adrian cuisine doesn't suit your fancy, perhaps Lorina's Lemon Drop Candies will. As a member of the Council of Chefs, we are more than certain that Lorina will continue on her path to greatness as both a pâtissier and confectioner, pioneering the success of those who come after her. “Fabius Bracchus in his element, cooking a traditional Illatian dish for Duke Red.” Their purpose set, the founding members sought to form a council of chef’s from amongst their number. Baron-Mayor Stefan Euler laid forth the following goals as Cook-General of the guild of chefs, bakers, saucers, stir-fryers, and etcetera, Assist aspiring cooks in mastering their trade and becoming masters in their own right. The accumulation of culinary knowledge and the sharing of said culinary knowledge. The training of professional court chefs for the aristocracy. To promote tourism involved with foodstuffs, showing the rich and robust culture of the Adrian peoples to the rest of the world at large. To complete these goals, the Adrian Cooking Guild shall be taking apprentices who wish to learn the culinary arts from the various different guild chefs. Those not oriented to the chefly arts are of course invited most gleefully to partake in the consumption of the wondrous creations of the fine Adrian guild cooks. “Ancient Adrianite Raevir cooking the first mud stew.” An event to showcase the skills of the council of chefs shall take place in a short time, dubbed “The Great Adrian Cook-off”. The purpose of this event is to showcase the versatility of the various chefs in and around the Duchy of Adria, as various cultural dishes from around the Human world will be presented before any attendees who are to enjoy the ample food. Around the end of the day, attendees will be polled as to which meal was their favourite, and the eventual winner will be awarded two hundred and fifty mina as well as a special trophy which will be unveiled during the polling. The Honorable, Lord Stefan Euler, Baron of Eulersburg

Looking for two true Celianorian pupils for the Arcane Arts
Gaja replied to Laeonathan's topic in CultureA young man by the name of Nuvian Py'lrie reads the letter and decides to write back. "Dearest Raziel, You most likely do not know me, for I have kept to myself for the time I have been alive. Indeed, you have most likely received letters from all sorts of people. So, I suppose the question in your head is: "Why should I take this nobody in as a student?" I think the key word there is potential. My mind is an unstocked shelf, and my eyes yet unopened to the way of the world. I am yet to truly understand myself and the land I live in, and so I must admit that I've little to offer and much to gain. However, I believe honesty is key, and perhaps you'd appreciate having something of a blank slate to teach. To conclude, I believe that I would make a good student, even if I am perhaps something of a dark horse. Regardless of the outcome, I appreciate your time and thank you for reading. Yours truly, Nuvian."

The Adrian Whale Hunt
Gaja posted a topic in United Kingdom of AaunThe Adrian Whale Hunt Artist's interpretation of the whale hunt After hearing word from a strange sailor, Erik Euler informed his brother of a large and dangerous whale, in the ocean close by! Eager, the Eulers rallied the Adrians to their camp for an expedition they'd all remember. Stefan Euler, captaining the crew and steering the Euler's very own ship, a mighty vessel passed down to them by their predecessor, Albrecht. He led them into the open sea, which was unnervingly calm. The cool breeze blew as the Adrians were joined by Ottomar von Alstreim and a companion of his on their trip. Jan Euler passed around harpoons to all--especially made by him for this trip. Soon enough, the whale surfaced and sought to destroy the ship! At first, all the harpoon throws missed--giving the whale a chance to damage the hull. Quick thinking from Stefan averted the ship completely sinking, though a hole was made. It was Jan Euler who landed the first hit, and soon everyone else followed, having the whale linked to the ship by almost a dozen ropes! Then, it was time to stab the whale with lances! However, the brash lord of the Adrians, Duke Heinrik threw himself at it with his longsword--soon falling into the water and losing his sword. Bravely, Santiago dove in after him, but the whale pushed the water around it away, sending Santiago away though eventually they both had to be roped back to the ship by the others. The whale, however, had stopped resisting and was brought back to camp by the brave Adrians! A success, all things considered! Ave Adria!
Recount of the Raevo-Adrian Tournament
Gaja replied to Optimus420's topic in County of VaškaStefan Euler would smile widely, stroking his mighty moustache with a look of sheer satisfaction. "Adrians, one and all!" He'd cry out, helping his elder brother Jan, who had injured his foot, back to their tent.
Joe & Humphrey: Private Investigators
Gaja posted a topic in The Kingdom of OrenThere are several flyers posted around Providence, stating: There's a new P.I. in Providence! Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you weren't told the whole truth? Perhaps a close friend of yours has gone missing, and you aren't sure what to do? Or maybe you just noticed something suspicious and wanted to help people stay safe. If so, you should consider paying a visit to Joe and Humphrey. For a small fee, these two private investigators will give their all into uncovering what really happened, no matter the situation. Situations where hiring a P.I. could prove helpful: someone you know disappears, theft or murder, trying to find someone who fled, seeing something suspicious happening, being blackmailed or coerced into doing something you don't want to, and many more.
