Syleen Concert, 1/3/2004, Daerlynn’s Concert Series, Arthe Hollow Inn

As transcribed by Mykk Dalys

It has been 374 years, 309 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.
It is the 8th month of Skullcleaver the Dwarven Axe in the year of the Amber Phoenix.
It is currently fall and it is early morning.
You feel somewhat certain it's somewhere about the Anlas of Hodierna's Blessing.

A thick bank of clouds obscures nearly all of the sky above.

[Arthe Hollow Inn, Common Room]
The room is filled with long, low tables and stools, where several people sit eating hearty bowls of Arthe Hollow's popular lamb stew. A large stone fireplace dominates one wall. Daisy Burdock, the inn's cook and waitress, crosses the room carrying a precarious arrangement of bowls and plates. She stops briefly to tease and joke with a regular customer or glance out the window. A sign is posted prominently next to the archway. You also see an open doorway, some wooden stairs, a polished wooden bar, and a wooden menuboard.

Concert

People are beginning to drift in the general direction of Arthe Dale. One young woman pulls at her companion's sleeve. "Hurry up!" she hisses. "We want to get a good seat for the concert! The Arthe Hollow Inn is big, and I want to sit up front!" Her companion, a tall young Elf, chuckles, "We have a few roisaen yet, dear," but he obligingly hurries his steps to match hers.

Tyrhe asks, "How much longer 'till this thing kicks off?"
Syleen quietly says, "Na long enough.."

Daerlynn recites:

"I want to welcome you all to another Arthe Dale concert, the 58th I think in our ongoing series!"

Daerlynn recites:

"Tonight we have a nice treat!! "

Daerlynn recites:

"Caladryll was supposed to present songs and stories of his people, the Prydaens... but got called away. However, his friend Syleen who did a concert with him previoulsy, graciously has stepped in!"

Daerlynn beams at Syleen!
Syleen gasps at Daerlynn!
Syleen asks, "Friend?"
Syleen says, "I married him."
Syleen winks at Daerlynn.
Daerlynn hums to herself.
Daerlynn exclaims, "Well.... I wasnt sure!"
Daerlynn wobbles, looking a bit faint.

Daerlynn recites:

"So, we will still have songs of the Prydaens.. and Syleen is muuuuuch prettier than Caladryll!"

Daerlynn nods.
Syleen shifts uneasily, gazing fixedly at her claws.
Melissande says, "wi've out a doubt."
Syleen purrs.
Syleen winks at Melissande.

Daerlynn recites:

"So, without further ado.... "

Daerlynn yells, "Syleen!"

Syleen ducks her head.
Syleen laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.

Syleen stands up.
Syleen stands near a stone fireplace.
Syleen sinks into a deep curtsy.

Syleen says, "Hello everyone and thank ya for coming out. Aye, my mate was scheduled tonight but unfortunately he couldn't be here and so it's my honor ta do it for him. Na worries, he begged me right proper and I'll take it outta his hide later."

Syleen says, "Afore I get started I just want ta say a word or two about my songs. My mother raised me up ta follow in her footsteps as bardess and storyteller, carrying on the family tradition. "

Syleen says, "My focus is Prydaen history and stories, even though I have a few other songs I'll be mixing in as well. My hope is ta lift ya up, take ya back down, make ya laugh, cause ya ta think and mayhaps even cause a tear or two ta be shed."
Syleen winks.

Syleen says, "Sit back, get comfy and I hope ya enjoy yerselves."

Syleen says, "I'm gonna start out with one of my personal favorites.. and a true story bout myself and then we'll go from there."

Syleen quietly says, "We all set then? "
Syleen glances at Daerlynn.
Syleen casually observes the area.
Daerlynn exclaims, "Aye!"
Syleen smiles.
Syleen exclaims, "On with tha show!"



Syleen says, "This song goes out ta anyone that's ever suddenly found themselves without words, and since I'm tha one singin.. yer all off tha hook and get ta relax and listen...I call it, Tongue Tied."

Syleen smiles just a little nervously as she opens her mouth to sing... and nothing comes out but a squeak!
Syleen coughs.
Syleen shifts uneasily, gazing fixedly at her claws.
Syleen makes a mrrrp noise in the back of her throat.
Syleen clears her throat.
Syleen gives voice to a high, troubled trill, glancing about anxiously.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "My mother was a bardess
      Her mother was as well
      So twas in my blood to sing and play
      I sang all night, and I strummed all day
      And finally I was ready to perform
      
      ...so I thought."

Syleen smiles almost helplessly as her fingers seem to falter slightly on her instrument, a sudden case of nerves attacking her.
Syleen clears her throat.
Syleen twitches an ear nervously.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "I stood real tall, and raised my chin
      Opened my mouth, drew breath to begin
      And suddenly.. to my dismay
      Nothing came out but air!
      The best I could do was a tiny squeal
      My throat just simply would NOT unseal
      
      I hung my head and went away."

Syleen's tail undulates lazily through the air.
Syleen makes a mrrrp noise in the back of her throat.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "I spent another year or so
      Working on my fear of stage
      I wanted to be the best, you know?
      But how to be when all you do is squeak?
      Finally the day came to try again, I was ready!
       
      ...so I thought."

Syleen raises her chin slightly in a show of defiance.
Syleen smiles somewhat confidantly as she takes a deep breath and opens her mouth...

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "I stood real tall, and raised my chin
      Opened my mouth, drew breath to begin
      And suddenly.. to my dismay
      Nothing came out but air!
      Oh, by the Three.. not again!
      
      I hung my head and went away."

Syleen's shoulders bow as if under some great burden.
Syleen sighs.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Time, it passed as it always does
      I got tall and my claws got long
      Went off on my own, and learned of pain
      And learned to deal, putting all into song
      And when asked to sing I said, I'm not ready
      
      ...so I thought."

Syleen mumbles something under her breath.
Syleen hesitantly says, "Alright, I'll...try."
Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "I stood real tall, and raised my chin
      Opened my mouth, drew breath to begin
      And suddenly.. to my dismay
      Nothing came out but air!
      But this time ...this time, I tried again
      
      And suddenly the words began to come."

Syleen beams!
Syleen perks her ears up in delight.
Syleen does a happy little dance!

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Suddenly my tongue untied
      And song flew free to drift aloft
      No longer could my talents hide
      So I say to you, do not despair
      Today you might not be ready
      But today is not your only day
      ...so I think."

Syleen's tail twitches, a mischievous look on her face.
Syleen smiles brightly at you as she nods and winks.
Syleen playfully exclaims, "And the Bardess is seldom wrong!"
Syleen chuckles.
Syleen winks at Silvyrfrost.
Silvyrfrost looks at Syleen and applauds!

Syleen smiles at herself and with a small chuckle ends her song with a graceful feline curtsy, her tail twitching behind her.



Syleen says, "Well, moving right along then.."
Syleen glances at a tiny dog.
Syleen smiles slowly.

Syleen says, "This song is dedicated ta tha little ones that we all know and adore and mistreat with such casualness..tha familiar."
Syleen grins.
Syleen nods to a tiny dog.

Syleen playfully sings in a soprano voice:

    "Speak ta me oh lizard friend
      tell me of yer woes
      of scales and bugs and big huge feet
      and hogs and rats and ...other foes"

You notice as a tiny dog looks around suspiciously.

Syleen happily sings in a soprano voice:

    "Talk to me my guinea friend
      tell me of thy cares
      of fleas and itchy tails and such
      and dodgin' fiery flares"

Syleen smiles teasingly and winks, taking a deep breath.
You notice as a tiny dog looks around suspiciously.
Syleen waves to a tiny dog.
Syleen chuckles.

Syleen mischievously sings in a soprano voice:

    "Fly ta me my batty friend
      and tell me of yer fun
      of droppin' guano on folks below
      and scarin' tha oh so squeamish one"

Syleen ducks her head.
Syleen quietly says, "See, it know.."
Syleen winks.
Syleen's tail twitches, a mischievous look on her face.
Syleen chuckles.

Syleen cheerfully sings in a soprano voice:

    "Purr ta me sweet feline friend
      and meow here in my ear
      of mice and yarn and.."

Syleen coughs.
Syleen coughs.
Syleen clears her throat.

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "......hairballs and...
      other such lovelies, m'dear"

Melissande's marnet pokes its head from its pouch and chitters at her in a sociable fashion.
You notice as a tiny dog scratches itself.
Syleen grins.

Syleen wistfully sings in a soprano voice:

    "Speak to me oh winged one
      and take me on thy flight
      share with me yer soarin' free
      and savage fierce delight"

Syleen gazes upward.
Syleen gets a dreamy expression on her face.
You notice a tiny dog rub against Nirveli for a moment.

Syleen nervously sings in a soprano voice:

    "Oh, hello there ya fanged one
      yer claws look verra..."

Syleen gulps.
Syleen twitches an ear nervously.

Syleen hesitantly sings in a soprano voice:

    "....sharp..."

Syleen casually observes the area.

Syleen quietly says, "iffn ya don' mind i think i'll just leave ya to yer peace.."

(Syleen would at this moment slink away as softly as possible, sighing in relief IF she's not followed, of course.)

Perking up its ears as if it heard something, a tiny dog glances into the distance, and bounds away.

Syleen smiles reassuringly as she winks at you.

Syleen giggles.
Syleen says, "So much fer makin friends with ALL of them.. and with that, this song is done."
Syleen grins.
Syleen looks over her shoulder nervously.

Syleen sinks into a deep curtsy.
Syleen laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.
Syleen says, "Love that song."
Syleen beams!
Syleen exclaims, "Yer too kind!"

Eksharo says to Danama, "Truly a clever look at the animals in our world."
Syleen winks at Eksharo.



Syleen asks, "Any empaths in here?"
Syleen smiles at Kishari.
Syleen says, "There ya are."
Eksharo coughs.
Eksharo raises his hand.
Syleen beams at Eksharo!
Syleen says, "Then this is fer ya."
Syleen nods.
Traume says, "Aye."
Traume raises her hand.
Traume beams!
Syleen smiles at Traume.

As Syleen strums her silver maple lyre, you notice how she manages to master each subtle movement with ease.

Syleen tenderly says, "This is for the first man I ever loved.. he was a simple man, but wise beyond anyone I've ever seen.. he was our Beloved Empath."
Syleen smiles gently as she begins to strum a soft tune on her intrument.
Syleen says, "And every other empath."

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "His touch was gentle
      His manner was soft
      His words brought peace to a wounded heart
      He took our wounds and eased our cares
         
     Our beloved empath Sharan"

Syleen tenderly sings in a soprano voice:

    "From the age of five I loved him
      When he took my first scraped knee
      From the age of ten I swore some day
      I'd make that man marry me"

Syleen sighs wist.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "They say the healers are not the strong ones
      I say they have no clue
      What an empath takes would drop us
      Would drop me, and drop him, and drop you"

Syleen sighs wistfully.
Syleen smiles and catches your eye for a moment, her fingers still stumming a gentle tune faintly reminiscent of the songs of old, taking a deep breath she sings on.

Syleen wistfully sings in a soprano voice:

    "In time I grew up and out of my crush
      In time I watched him age
      Yet his touch stayed gentle while his body grew old
      His wisdom still soothed us though his eyes grew dim
       
     Our beloved empath Sharan"

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "In our village he was the only one
      The single Prydaen with the touch
      We cherished our man, our empath
      Right up until his very last brush"

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Until his very last healing
      When Tenemlor finally said 'Tis enough'
      And she summoned him back to rejoin the wheel
      And left us again to our own .. without
      
      Our beloved empath Sharan"

Syleen slowly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Be good to the empath that takes your wound
      Be kind to the ones that bleed for you
      Remember the wounds they are taking
      Be mindful your life they are saving
      Beware the cares they keeping
      Beloved be ..... the empaths "

Syleen smiles gently as she plays a sweet gentle melody for a moment longer, the notes finally fading long after her voice drifts off.

Syleen says, "A salute to our empaths."

Syleen perks her ears up in delight.

Syleen exclaims, "Thank ya ever so much, ooh this is gettin fun!"



Syleen says, "Alright, afore I jump inta pure Prdyaen mode.. one more pure story."

Syleen plucks at the strings of her silver maple lyre, listening intently.

Syleen says, "This is a song that suddenly flashed into my mind one day as I was hearing rumors of a tragic love story. There are na names to be changed, but I think ya'll all recognize someone ya know..."

Syleen smiles very softly as she stops to look at you.

Syleen says, "And iffn ya don'.. then lucky ya, is all I gotta say."

Syleen ponders for a moment as she begins to play a soft tune, laced with lingering notes that float wistfully through the air as if searching for something.
Syleen gives a slight nod.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The day they met Gods shuddered
      The earth, she held her breath
      The air itself stopped to watch
      All waited to see what came next
     
      Of a love not meant to be."

Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.
Syleen smiles a little mysteriously at she glances at you, her music still soft and somewhat halting as she goes on...

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "He was very tall and handsome
      Eyes as black as night
      He moved with the grace of panthers
      Skill with blades to make grown men weep
      
      And his name.. his name was Pride."

Syleen slinks back and forth, like a restless predator on the prowl.
Syleen perks her ears up happily as she gazes at Melissande.
Syleen smiles just a little as she stops and stands still, her tune quickening to one of slight seduction.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Her beauty rivaled a Goddess
      Her voice made birds fall still
      Eyes as green as sunlight sea
      Hair that paled the finest gold
     
      And they called her .. Jealousy."

Syleen slowly empties her lungs.
Syleen grooms her ears carefully, then runs her fingers over her mane.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Everyone that knew them
      Said this cannot be
      Cause everyone knows you can't make a life
      Of Pride and Jealousy."

Syleen smiles just a little as she looks at you, her voice lilting soft and smooth.
Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Her heart stopped beating as her eyes met his
      He tried to catch his breath
      No words passed as he took her hand
      Nothing said that should have been
     
      And hence, the tragedy began."

Syleen slinks back and forth, like a restless predator on the prowl.
Syleen quietly says, "Was it love? Noone knew, not them.. not their friends.. not even the Gods could explain what happened that day, that fateful day when the wrong two people met."
Syleen wrings her hands nervously.
Syleen paces back and forth.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The perfect pair, so tall and fair
      The envy of all they met
      And yet beneath the charm and flair
      A danger lurked, and bid it's time
     
      A time not long in coming..very soon it struck."

Syleen sighs.

Syleen quietly says, "Their very nature did them in, the flaws they could not change."

Syleen slinks back and forth a bit, flicking her tail restlessly.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Never a moment's peace they knew
      Not a single moment of calm
      The passion flared in love and hate
      In lust.. in anger.. in bloodless wounds
     
      And yet neither ever could walk away."

Syleen sighs.
Syleen shrugs.
Syleen gives voice to a high, troubled trill, glancing about anxiously.
Syleen twitches her ears in agitation.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Everyone that knew them
      Said this cannot be
      Cause everyone knows you can't make a life
      Of Pride and Jealousy."

Syleen ponders a moment, glancing down at her fingers playing out her music, her tune growing louder and flowing with dancing anger.
Syleen flicks her tail defiantly!
Syleen takes on a haughty countenance.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    ""I'll never let you go!" she cried
      He growled "You'll have no choice!"
      On and on and on it went
      Until the heavens wrenched in rain
      And the very mountains groaned in pain
     
      Forever and a day too long."

Syleen sadly says, "The love that was never meant to be went on, the curse of years of time together and Misery laughed in glee."
Syleen grinds her teeth.
Syleen slinks back and forth, like a restless predator on the prowl.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The torment that could never end
      The pain that could not cease
      This pair forever doomed to be
      As One for worse and worse
     
      Until the end of time they go.."

Syleen sighs.
Syleen's shoulders bow as if under some great burden.

Syleen haggardly says, "For what can kill poor Jealousy, and little can destroy Pride.. forever locked together now .. not even the Gods themselves have the strength to pry them apart."

Syleen's ears droop dejectedly as a look of melancholy crosses her face.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Everyone that knew them
      Said this cannot be
      Cause everyone knows you can't make a life
      Of Pride and Jealousy."

Syleen holds her breath.
Syleen slowly empties her lungs.

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "And so they go, from day to day
      In painful, haunting strife
      Unable to learn.. unable to leave
      This immortal pair.. such tragedy
     
      So envious of those that die."

Syleen smiles just a little as her music slows down to a soft, sad waif.. the notes caressing the edges of your hearing.
Syleen's ears droop for a moment.

Syleen sadly sings in a soprano voice:

    "And so ends my tale of Jealousy
      Done is my song of Pride
      But alas, it does not end for them
      So heed my words tonight
     
      And spare yourself such pain of life."

Syleen gazes upward.
Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.
Syleen slowly empties her lungs.
Syleen flicks one ear back as though listening for something.
Syleen ponders thoughtfully as her eyes drift almost unseeing across the room as though she can see the very couple in her song, her fingers falter and her music stops as though with a sad, tired sigh.
Silvyrfrost quietly says, "Well sung."
Syleen gazes down at the floor.
Silvyrfrost nods to Syleen.
Syleen perks her ears up happily as she gazes at Silvyrfrost.
Syleen says to Silvyrfrost, "I'm honored, Guildleader."
Syleen casually observes the area.
Syleen purrs.
Syleen says, "Thank ya so much. "



Syleen says, "Alright then.. time to get down to business already.."
Syleen's tail undulates lazily through the air.
Syleen winks and flashes a sly grin.

Syleen asks, "Ready for some Prydaen history?"
Syleen casually observes the area.
Syleen grins.
Syleen exclaims, "Good!"
Raydell exclaims, "I love Prydaen!"
Syleen winks at Raydell.
Raydell says, "Well, one specifically."
Raydell clears his throat.

Syleen says, "When I was but a babe yet, my mother began ta teach me what it meant ta be Prydaen..what I had ta be proud of and what I had ta look forward ta. "

Syleen says, "Now, I was too little ta remember when tha Exodus occured, and my parents were both youngins, but..."

Syleen's ears straighten up smartly, a look of pride on her face.

Syleen quietly says, "They remembered, and they give me all they knew.. which.. I hope to share in my songs as I go along with those that never did know."

Syleen smiles gently as she begins to play a light, airy tune.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "My child you will learn today
      Of things you need to know
      From where you sprung and where you'll go
      Now listen well, as my words do flow
         
      These are things my child should know."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Listen Kit, and listen well
      Ya need ta know from where ya come
      Now hush yer mouth and hear my words
      And feel the pride, feel.. the pryde
      Feel yer Pryde, oh child of mine."

Syleen's ears stand up proudly for a moment.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Once we lived far west of here
      Once we had lands of our own
      We hunted free and lived as one
      With Eu we dwelt, and Demrris our guide
            
     We lived our lives as One."

Syleen says, "Now this is when my mother lowered her voice, her eyes a little sad and she murmured to me "Yer tha Pryde, Syleen and never ya ferget it. Now yer gonna hear what happened ta yer people." and I tell ya, her words still bring a shiver ta my soul."
Syleen shivers.
Syleen ponders for a moment as her tune turns melancholy, the rhythm like a slowly beating heart.

Syleen darkly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Lyras came.. with her evil ways
      She stole from us our verra souls
      Helplessly we watched them die
      Our race.. our kin.. our land.. our homes
      She took it ALL before our eyes
          
      She even stole our dead."

Syleen's ears droop dejectedly as a look of melancholy crosses her face.

Syleen sadly sings in a soprano voice:

    "We could na stop the dyin
      We could na stop tha dead
      The dead were our own Kin, child
      The undead that come at us were our Own
         
      Even Tenemlor and the Wheel..  denied."

Syleen lays her ears back sharply, letting out a feral hiss.

Syleen angrily sings in a soprano voice:

    "To saves ourselves, to save us all
      We sacrificed and made a wall
      We had na choice, we had na will
      Except to barricade them in
         
      Create the Great Barrier is what we did."

Syleen slinks back and forth, like a restless predator on the prowl.
Syleen ponders briefly as she stops and looks directly at you.
Syleen sternly says, "This is what my mother said to me then, and what I say to you now so listen closely as ya've na listened afore.. Prydaen Kin of mine."

Syleen smiles a hard little smile for a moment, her fingers strumming a strong rhythm that picks up in volume as does her voice, her eyes blazing brightly with conviction.
Syleen raises her chin slightly in a show of defiance.
Syleen lashes her tail wildly!

Syleen firmly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Ya WILL someday return, my child
      Ya WILL reclaim our own
      This is what yer birth was for
      To carry on when I am gone
        
     To bring our people home!"

Syleen wistfully sings in a soprano voice:

    "Go west and claim our home again
      Go West and kill the scourge
      Purge the evil from our souls
      Burn the dead.. send them strait to tha Wheel
         
      And learn to live as One again."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Listen Kit, and listen well
      Ya need ta know from where ya come
      Now hush yer mouth and hear my words
      And feel the pride, feel the pryde
      Feel yer Pryde, oh child of mine."

Syleen's ears straighten up smartly, a look of pride on her face.
Syleen ponders as she gazes deeply into your eyes, her music slowly fading away as her song comes to an end.

Syleen quietly says, "Remember, my Kin.. yer tha Pryde."
Syleen bows her head and grows still for a moment.
Syleen slowly empties her lungs.

Syleen flashes a quick grin.
Syleen says, "I love it when even furless get inta the mood."
Syleen sinks into a deep curtsy.



Syleen asks, "Thank ya.. ready fer more?"
Daerlynn beams at Syleen!
Donalisa nods to Syleen.
Melissande says, "of course."
Khory nods to Syleen.
Amagaim says, "Yes, please, Syleen."
Lindryl says, "very much ready, Syleen. You have a marvelous voice."
Syleen perks her ears up happily as she gazes at Lindryl.
Syleen says, "Thank ya M'lady."

Syleen says, "I'm up for it too.."
Syleen says, "Alright then.."

Syleen gets a bottle of Prydaen bloodwine from inside her hip pouch.
Syleen takes a sip of her bloodwine.
Syleen puts her bloodwine in her hip pouch.
Syleen licks her lips.

Syleen says, "There have na been many songs written yet about the Exodus of our people from the West.. but here is one, about the man that helped to lead many of the kin here."

Syleen smiles slowly at her audience, and begins to strum an wandering tune on her lyre, the notes seeming to drift almost aimlessly across the air as she lifts her voice to sing.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The Prydes had lost the way
      The lands of the East so odd
      The hunters finding themselves the prey
      Our numbers were dwindling.. falling away."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "We'd fled the lands of our birthing
      All we knew was left behind
      Already weakened from the flight
      Distraught, dispairing but not destroyed."

Syleen quietly says, "Now the Prydaen peoples had already been traveling for what felt like years, ever heading eastward to try and save what few of us were left from the battle against Lyras and her necromatic evils."

Syleen slinks back and forth a bit, flicking her tail restlessly.

Syleen quietly says, "Nothing, in the entire history of our land.. NOTHING had force us to flee before, had cause our warriors to leave the familiar fields, the elderly and children from the hubs. Nothing had cause fear to strike in our heart, or such burning desire for revenge. "

Syleen says, "But our trials were not over, we'd not found a place to settle.. a place we could be welcomed in. A place to call home. So we traveled on.. lost, divided, and losing more along the way from sheer exhaustion or wounds."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Sometimes in the trails behind
      Drops of blood were left
      So many miles already trod
      So many more yet to go."

Syleen's ears droop dejectedly as a look of melancholy crosses her face.
Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Onward we kept pushing
      Struggling to find a place
      A haven of rest so elusive
      Darkness ever following after."

Syleen slowly says, "And then, suddenly.. there was hope, in the form of a single man."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "From out of the mists
      Strode the warrior fierce
      Parting the fog with blade in hand
      With that.. a Legend is born."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "He'd led his own pryde from the wasteland
      That used to be our home
      He gathered the lost as he went
      Gladly following his strength."

Syleen smiles to herself, strumming for a moment as she pauses in her song. Her eyes life from her lyre to glance around the audience, her gaze lingering on her kin. Her eyes almost seem to dare you to remember, to feel the words coming next.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Suddenly hope was born anew
      A light embodied in that soul
      All hail the Predator that led us
      Bearing the name, Darkensi."

Syleen's ears straighten up smartly, a look of pride on her face.
Syleen swishes her tail through the air.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Many things have happened since
      Rumors dark and fearsome
      But Prydaens know the truth that lies
      And behind our legend we stand united
     
      Darkensi, still our Legend born
      We shall never forsake you."

Syleen smiles rather proudly as she looks about her, eyes glowing with determination as she ends her song with a final riff of notes.

Syleen exclaims, "Never!"



Syleen quietly says, "And now.. I move ya from hero.. ta villian."

Syleen ponders for a moment as she looks about in silence, seeming to measure her audience. After a few roisaen she nods and finally begins to speak.

Syleen says, "The story I'm about ta tell ya is truth, from tha perspective of tha one that lived it."

Syleen smiles just a little and pauses briefly, then adds..

Syleen says, "Yes, some versions are different of this fairly well known tale.. but fer tha first time tha criminal himself is sharin his tale from his own point of view.. and few can argue with that."

Syleen says, "He's confessed that he does hope some learn from what has happened, and that history ne'er repeats itself.. I too raise my voice in those hopes.. and with that, I present ta ya.. Meerc's Tale."

Syleen smiles faintly for a moment but her smile fades as she begins to strum a slow, haunting tune on her lyre.. her demeanor growing still and somber.

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Beware of the light in the shadow of moons
      Beware the madness it brings
      So sweet is the light in the shadow of moons
      How lovely the music it sings
      Beware of the light.. beware the light
     
      In the darkness of... the moons"

Syleen enigmatically says, "Our story begins with the alignment of the moons, and evil that rises within... An evil that all possess.. but few are aware of. An evil that can twist and warp the mind into thinking that the path they step down is justified, in spite of any light of reason that might scream 'No!'."

Syleen slowly sings in a soprano voice:

    "The plan was simple, it should have worked
      Destroy the Barrier, then the Evil that lurked
      The only thing standing in my way
      Were souls.. simple souls
     
      Merely the souls of the Elders."

Syleen casually observes the area.
Syleen twitches an ear nervously.
Syleen coughs.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The moons were in line
      And they spoke in my mind
      Vague whisperings of plans.. of designs
      Soon it was clear as the timing grew near
      In the Moonlight was written the signs"

Syleen smiles rather vaguely as she glances about, her eyes seeming dark and furtive.. her shoulders slumping as her mane falls forward putting her features into shadow as she speaks so soft as to be barely heard.

Syleen quietly says, "All Prydaen's know the story of the Great Barrier.. how it is tied up with the souls of the Elders of the Rakash and the Prydaen.. as long as they stand tall.. so does the Barrier stay strong and bar the evil from this land."

Syleen's shoulders bow as if under some great burden.

Syleen sadly says, "However, it always keeps us from our homeland.. this must change.. it.. "

Syleen firmly says, "...must.."

Syleen emphatically exclaims, "CHANGE!"

Syleen blinks.
Syleen blinks.
Syleen narrows her eyes.

Syleen helplessly sings in a soprano voice:

    "I never heard the Madness approaching
      Not once did I know it was there
      The whispers were sweet, but demanding
      I obeyed without thought.. without care"

Syleen sighs.
A tear runs down Syleen's face.

Syleen sadly says, "I planned it so carefully, it all went so well.. the Rakash Elders fell, unknowing that the hand that held the blade was controlled by my own mind. "

Syleen's ears droop dejectedly as a look of melancholy crosses her face.
Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.

Syleen enigmatically says, "Then it was time.. for the Prydaens to die.. and die they did.. except the one that I desired the most.. "

Syleen blinks.
Syleen casually observes the area.

Syleen asks, "Why?"

Syleen shrugs.
Syleen chuckles.

Syleen matter-of-factly says, "I don't even remember the slight, only the feeling and it didn't matter why.. only.. how.. and the how.. lost me my very soul."

Syleen sighs.
A tear runs down Syleen's face.

Syleen hauntingly sings in a soprano voice:

    "He was my friend, long before
      How could I use him so?
      My heart cried out, brief sanity returned
      But then Madness whispered one last time
      As it bent me to it's will
      I bent him to mine.. "

Syleen slowly empties her lungs.
Syleen's shoulders bow as if under some great burden.
Syleen gazes down at the floor.

Syleen quietly says, "The plan failed, somehow and the Elder lived.. the Barrier still stood but for me it was too late.. too late indeed."
Syleen shrugs.
Syleen casually observes the area.
Syleen perks up her ears, glancing around alertly.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "They held a trial, I was not there
      They condemned my soul but I could not care
      I was already gone, lost from the start
      Lost the moment Madness covered my heart
     
      Now they call me... Cemsiat"

Syleen ponders in silence, pausing for a long moment to allow you to absorb all that you have just learned as her haunting tune goes on.

Syleen quietly says, "At this, he fell silent.. the man that told all .. and he asked me to share what I'd heard. "

Syleen says, "'So I share with you now, my kin, so that ya might learn from this.. pardon is not sought, nor judgement withheld.. only this.. this one simple thing."

Syleen inhales a great swallow of air.

Syleen smiles as best she can, her eyes imploring as she seems to gaze into your very soul.

Syleen quietly says, "Never let this happen.. ever.. again."

Syleen slowly empties her lungs.
Syleen nods.

Syleen sadly sings in a soprano voice:

    "He still walks among us, but he is not of us
      Never again to be kin
      But still as we shun him
      Let us please.. learn from him
     
      And never ever let this happen.. again."

Syleen gazes down at the floor.

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Beware of the light in the shadow of moons
      Beware the madness it brings
      So sweet is the light in the shadow of moons
      How lovely the music it sings
      Beware of the light.. beware the light
     
      In the darkness of... the moons"

Syleen smiles very softly as she lifts her face again, gazing up into the heavens and her fingers fall still.. the tune fading away as her song ends on a sad note.

With a graceful flutter of her hands, Syleen sinks down in a formal curtsy.

Syleen quietly says, "That song always takes a lot out of me."



Syleen says, "Well.."

Syleen asks, "Maybe a lighter subject is in order?"

Syleen smiles.

Syleen says, "Let's sing of love."

Syleen smiles.

Syleen says, "The culture, traditions and lifestyle of the Prydaens are a bit different than most, and hence not a lot of love songs out there seem to fit us well.. but here is a short tune that I hope ya enjoy."

Syleen smiles impishly as she begins to pluck at her lyre softly, playing a tune of romantic lilting.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "We met during the season to mate
      And instinct had it's way with us
      But afterwards you stayed with me
      You stayed and made me love you
      Now I'm the one that can't walk away"

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "You've brought my life to meaning
      And reason to my being
      Resisting you is not a choice
      My head, my heart.. my body
      All were yours long before this night"

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Touch me as no other can
      Be with me this night
      Let my murmured words of love
      Flow over you with gentle touches
      Bask in the warmth of my glowing gaze"

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "It matters not what tomorrow brings
      By your side I remain
      Together we shall witness life
      Until Tenemlor allows us home
      As one we'll journey there"

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The blessings of Eu befall us
      I feel them with your gaze
      Every touch of your eyes on me
      The brush of your hand reminds me
      Of the beauty in our being"

Syleen tenderly sings in a soprano voice:

    "Whether it be for a season
      Or whether it be for life
      If I'm only to be your lover
      Or in time I become your wife
      My love for you is pure and strong
      And Demrris whispers softly ..  
      
      Such love is never wrong"

Syleen smiles at an oath ring of polished green jade that holds captive a tiny hourglass.

Syleen smiles tenderly, bringing her song to a close with a gentle kiss of whispering notes.

Syleen tenderly says, "I wrote that for my mate on our wedding night."

Syleen sinks into a deep curtsy.



Syleen says, "Alright, Last song of the night."

Syleen plucks at the strings of her silver maple lyre, listening intently.

Syleen says, "And I wanna say thank ya fer puttin up with me and bein ever so kind."

Syleen says, "This next one is another true story."

Syleen quietly says, "What I am bout ta sing fer ya is na a happy tune, but rather one born of pain and heartache. "

Syleen says, "I do apologize iffn my words are na pleasant ta yer ears, but it is my song of purging me own personal heartbreak so please be kind and bear with me."

Syleen quietly sings in a soprano voice:

    "She grew up in a warm, loving family
      Almost spoiled she was by pure love
      But tragedy struck at a tender young age
      And her heart rent assunder by death
      Orphaned, alone she cried out in despair
         
      A plea for a cease to the pain."

Syleen gazes upward.
A tear runs down Syleen's face.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Take me to the Wheel, she cried
      Take me to the Wheel
      Her cries rang out to Tenemlor
      To Her, who heard but refused
      She verra much denied
      The waste of a life of her child
      Well... afore her time."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Time did it's work on the young woman's heart
      She finally learned to move on
      Her affections then went to her village
      And love again flowed from her soul
      Until plague took them all under her gaze
          
      And sobbing she mourned as she begged."

Syleen gazes upward.
A tear runs down Syleen's face.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Take me to the Wheel, she cried
      Take me to the Wheel
      Her cries rang out to Tenemlor
      To Her, who heard but refused
      She verra much denied
      The waste of a life of her child
      Well... afore her time."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The Three had a plan for this woman
      Her life yet again, it was spared
      So she gathered herself and she journeyed
      But she slipped and fell... hard
      In love with a man, with this wonderful man
       
       Who brought her a rose and asked for her hand."

Syleen smiles very softly, as she continues to play her sad tune. Her eyes stare off into the distance for a moment, a wistful expression about her face.

Syleen sadly says, "But alas, all is not what it seems."

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Her mate slipped a ring on her finger
      They bonded together in bliss
      But within a few days he confessed
      That too much, too soon and too sudden
      And her fragile heart shattered when she then
      Learned of another... her place taken
     
      On her knees she cried out."

Syleen gazes upward.
Syleen begins to weep softly.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Take me to the Wheel, she cried
      Take me to the Wheel
      Her cries rang out to Tenemlor
      To Her, who heard but refused
      She verra much denied
      The waste of a life of her child
      Well... afore her time."

Syleen smiles sadly as she gazes at you, her cheeks wet with her tears as she sings on with determination.

Syleen wistfully sings in a soprano voice:

    "She knows that the Gods had something in mind
      She knows she was born for a reason
      Three times denied an end to her pain
      So onward she goes and upward she'll climb
      Til the day her request is na longer denied
       
      And Tenemlor welcomes her home."

Syleen ponders over her softly strumming fingers, her head lowering as her tune flows to a gentle, peaceful end.

Syleen quietly says, "She knows, because she's me."

Syleen smiles gently.

Daerlynn recites:

    "Let's hear it for Syleen....!"

Syleen says, "Thank ya so much."

Syleen slowly empties her lungs.

Syleen exclaims, "Now THAT was just fun!"

Daerlynn recites:

    "I want to thank you all for coming!"

"Remember the next concert in two weeks... the Tavern Troupe will perform!"

Syleen asks, "How about something fun?"
Syleen says, "We've suffered enough tonight."
Syleen winks and flashes a sly grin.
Syleen says, "I know.."
Syleen glances at a dagger thigh sheath.
Syleen grins wickedly.
Syleen says, "So.. I go shoppin tha other day, right? And I buy myself this new sheath here.. little did I know.. how much attention that kin get a girl.. "
Syleen grins.
Syleen says, "Here, let me tell ya about it..."

Syleen presents a dagger thigh sheath, extolling its virtues for all to hear!

Syleen smiles impishly as she picks up a lyre and begins to strum, playing a frolicking tune as she takes a deep breath and begins to sing.

Syleen rubs a dagger thigh sheath.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "It's just a simple thigh sheath
      I donna see tha cause
      Of all tha sudden attention
      But it makes me stop and pause
      Tis amazin what a man will think!
        
      But it's just a simple thigh sheath!"

Syleen smiles almost helplessly, shrugging her shoulders as she continues to strum a playful tune.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The first man saw my sheath
      And this grin, it split his face
       He says ta me.. "Ooh Sweet Thing"
       I gots somethin ya kin put in that place
      It's short but wide and would love to hide
      In that sheath you have on your thigh."

Syleen blinks.
Syleen blinks.
Syleen asks, "Do what?!?"
Syleen makes a mrrrp noise in the back of her throat.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "The guy right next ta him
      He kinda shoves the first and says
      "That wasn't nice, and kinda dim"
      So I start to relax, just ta hear
      Mine's long and thin and a better fit
      To put in that sheath, m'dear."

Syleen gasps!
Syleen rolls her eyes.
Syleen mutters into the air something about what have I gotten myself into now?.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "This wanderin Tog, he comes along
      And acourse he hears all this
      He flexes up and I'm thinking 'Grand!'
      "My protector's here.." as he holds up his hand
      And proclaims his weapon's much too huge
      He'd split my poor sheath in half!"

Syleen groans.
Syleen enigmatically says, "I'm thinkin things are getting rather out of hand here, myself.. but it.. gets.. worse.."
Syleen rubs a dagger thigh sheath.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "It's just a simple thigh sheath
      I donna see tha cause
      Of all tha sudden attention
      But it makes me stop and pause
      Tis amazin what a man will say!
        
      But it's just a simple thigh sheath!"

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

    "Then, so I flee from this spot
      And I head where tis safe
      Straight to the bank just standin
      Bein all hushed but the sheath starts to chafe
      And I move it, just once and suddenly
      I'm getting offers, na just one, from three!"

Syleen quietly says, "All of them saying tha same thing 'I gots something you kin put in that sheath, sweet thing'.. Kin ya believe this? I'm tellin ya.."
Syleen leans back.
Syleen folds her arms across her chest.

Syleen sings in a soprano voice:

      I wear this sheath on my thigh
      It's gonna hold any ole blade ya got?
      Am I that naive? Am I..
      Oh..  wait a sec.. what do ya mean

      I donna see tha cause
      Of all tha sudden attention
      But it makes me stop and pause
