Hi, everyone! Gosh, this is so weird to be talking to you all for the first time! Er... I'll just try to be brief I guess, and make sure I don't overload you guys with information, okay? Tuh?
Say hi, Edol! ^^ This is Edolynn, my little baby ball-o-fire piggy! And I'm Kassy. Your region leader. "This region" being our beautiful, colorful Porta del Pizzicare! (or port-a-del-pit-ze-cah-ray for newcomers!)
Now, for those of you who might not know the lay of the land, I'll give you the skinny. There's three main parts to our lovely little bay: Cita Erbonde (the capital city), "the spit" (aka "that big hunk of land curling into the harbor"), and Cucciaio (my hometown!). Now unfortunately, as lovely as Cucciaio is (oh... by the way, that's pronounced "coo-kee-eye-oh") I have to letcha guys know... that city's off-limits for living on for y'alls. Sorry! Town ordinance that's been in place for seventy years...I'm trying my best to chat with the town leaders to get them to change that rule, but for now you guys'll have to live in Cita Erbonde.
Oh, big sad mess, innit? <xD Too bad you have to live here! Ha! Not! Seriously, you guys are going to LOVE the Cita. o v o It's got everything! It's got poke-centers, loads of little local restaurants and boutiques, AND most importantly, it's got three big attractions: La Theatre del Tria, the Chiesa di Iridato, and the battleground.
First, I've got to tell you about La Theatre del Tria. It's... it's my baby. This beautiful place is more than just mortar and brick, glass and paint. It's a home. It's a beautifully engineered giant, mechanical masterpiece of monstrous proportions made back in the early 1900's as a haven for all forms of art: paintings, magic, theater, chorus, opera, ballet, you name it this space has got it. It's ready for any kind of displayable show of physical, mental, and emotional prowess, including controlled battles! And I DO mean controlled
. I suppose while I'm talking 'bout the theater I might as well address the rules of the house. U U
1. NO feet up on the chairs!
2. No gum, food, or beverages besides water allowed in the workspace.
3. NO touching the curtains! They're delicate, EXTREMELY expensive material and it takes an arm and a half just to get the dang things installed.
and the last and most important rule?
4. KNOW THE SUPERSTITIONS! Here's a site for your reference to know what they are. [link] Know them. Respect them. Always leave the ghost light on at night. OR THESPIS WILL GET YOU!!!
Sorry. Got off on a tangent. <://D That was Shawn, by the way. o v o I'm supposed
to technically call her my assistant, but she's been around since we were both real little. She's really really cool! You guys will get to know her more as you get involved in our region. ^^
Er..it looks like I've already used up all my time... but I... wait, what? Okay, apparently I've still got some time left. o v o I'll just wrap up quick and let you guys go, 'kay?
There's another feature of Cita Erbonde you guys should know about; the Chiesa di Iridato. It means "The Church of the rainbow-like one". It's the main feature of the city since it's where locals have worshiped the "rainbow-like one", or Ho-oh, ever since the island was discovered and settled. Considering the fact that the bay has had its fair share of hurricanes and tsunamis and this hunk of holy rock has remained standing is pretty cool, if you ask me! If you have religious leanings of any kind, you're encouraged to go here if you need a quiet place to pray/meditate/or whatever. ^^
The last feature of Cita Erbonde you guys should know about is the battleground. ` v ` (it's that roman Colosseum looking thing on the city view) It's pretty much your basic got-it-all battleground. It's got locker rooms, a snack bar, seating areas, a multi-level and multi-terrain battle ground about the size of a football field, you know. Basic stuff. If you're going to have a real scrap, don't take it to the theater, take it here! Besides, once the year's events start kicking off, you're going to have to get reeeeeal friendly with the place!
AAaaaaaaand that's it. That's all I got. o v o If you've got a thing for cities by the beach or theater or watery harbors and fishing and stuff, Cita Erbonde is the place for you! ^^ If you end up joining another faction, I wish you godspeed and hope you have a good time! BUT! for those-a you who do
end up moving here, you're going to have loads of fun! >w<
