Patrons & Performers Night!
Calling all patrons of the arts, lovers of music and drama!
Are you looking for the next hot young performing talent to hit Cormyr? Do you have desire to offer patronage to a bard, actor, artist or other performer and watch their career blossom? Perhaps you are in need of a herald to perform for you or a skald to sing your praises?
Then come to the Patrons and Performers Night at the Phoenix Theatre in Arabel to see what the talented artists of this land can offer. Not only that but there will be ample opportunity to network and mingle with not only artists but other prominent individuals.
If you wish your attendance as a potential patron announced send word to Vennis Haler at the Phoenix Theatre today!
//The concept behind "Performers and Patron's Night" event at the Phoenix Theatre in Arabel is to provide an opportunity for new and established players to show off the talents of their bards and other performers to an audience and possible attract the sponsorship of a patron. Likewise the patrons have the opportunity to cream off the best performing talent and the prestige this brings along with the chance for a bard to work for them, possibly singing their praises in song, the commissioning of plays and works of art et cetera.
Patrons can be PCs but there will also be NPCs of assorted DMs there to offer hooks into their plots, so it offers a chance for PCs to get involved in some of the existing (and perhaps new) plots going on.
If you're interested in being a performer or a patron feel free to post IC below or send me a PM
Nominal date for this is Saturday 9th March and will be spread over a few timezones to hopefully get as wide a participation as possible
//This event is going to stretch over the 9th and 10th March to allow as many to participate as possible. If performers can let me know which day and what time would be good for them that would be great then I can narrow down the event times and also advertise when each performer will be around

*Eventually, when the after party is finished, the doors close and the performers and their audience filter out into the night. Rumours abound of strange contortionist performers, exquisite singers, generous benefactors and even a brawl!*

"Fair of Hair, Fair of face She who walks with grace Long fine hair down to her waist Her long hair does it flow, at night catches the moon's glow Eyes pale and blue, Like the spring sky hue Her smile warm and kind, One rarely seen and hard to find Her heart is pure and true.

She is my wife, my mate, my Lady Cassily."
