This forum is an OOC forum for PCS and Organizations to work out plans in hardcopy. Each PC or Organization gets a single thread where their players can help work out plans for their PC. Quests, mini-sagas, and Trips can all be organized here as well working out timelines and points of travel and things PCs need to do along the way. Each PC however gets only one Plotnote for their individual PC. Groups get one as well. There is no limit on individuals posting saga or trip plotnote threads. Please denote [PC Plotnotes] or [Group Plotnotes] or [Quest/Trip/Saga Plotnotes] when titling your threads.

Timeline
Travel to Lhavit
# Arra departs on the 89th of Spring. The trip to Syliras takes 70 days. Tsari born during this time. They arrive in Syliras on the 68th of Summer.
# Arra remains in Syliras until Spring 14th, then travels to Novallas, which takes 35 days. They arrive in Novallas on the 49th of Spring
# Arra stays there until Summer 44th, then heads to Karjin. Takes 40 days walk, so they arrive on the 84th of Summer.
# Arra waits until next Summer (14), spending a whole year there due to Tsari being ill, then the pair head off to Lhavit. It's a 100 day walk, so they arrive on 23rd of Autumn.
# That's 245 days of travel, and 601 days rest. Tsari is a little over 1.5 years old when they arrive in Lhavit.

Will maybe change this later.

Cooking
Skill Level
Novice :
Extremely simple techniques are learned here, most likely picked up from watching another cook perform, having a relative show a few skills off, or from reading some cookbook off the street. He would need a recipe or a guiding hand to put any kind of food together, save for the most simple of dishes, such as buttered toast. Such a cook is simply not experienced enough to know how to take the varieties of herbs, fruits, meats, veggies, flours, and powders; and put them all together to form something that actually tastes good. A novice would be able to do simple recipes at this point in their career, although making everything from scratch usually results in a bit of an off-flavor, collapsing cakes, burnt bottoms of cookies, meat seared a little too much, or perhaps served a little too rare, and so on. She would just now be learning the importance of measuring and weighing ingredients, proper whisking, mixing, seasonings, different cooking methods, how to prep ingredients, and so forth. They are learning the basics of all their tools, such as knives, measuring tools, as well as the basics of sanitation. He would be using different cutting boards for raw meats and fresh produce, storing raw chicken and fish separate, and how to clean up after themselves in the most sanitary manner. There are a variety of tools for use at this stage, tools to cut, peel, chop, grate, and dice. Novice cooks learn by simply floundering around with these tools, and wide base of knowledge, until it becomes natural. Experience is key.

Competent :
A Competent cook has now done enough cooking to be able to actually produce a tasty dish when he tries. While a recipe or guiding hand is still usually needed, the practitioner is now confident enough in his skills to try out minor deviations from a recipe or guide, and have moderate success. He perhaps has a few recipes memorized here and there, those of which are usually favorites, and can prepare them quite easily. His skill with his collection of culinary tools has increased, and he is now able to use them efficiently. His chef knife now cuts straight and true, with a good bit of speed behind it. They know most of their ingredients quite well, being able to name them by sight, smell, or feel. While once their dishes were quite simplistic, they are now learning to mix widely different ingredients into the same dish, introducing two very contrasting flavors with success. Their knowledge of cooking methods has increased, and they now know how to use simple tools in order to judge the doneness of a particular dish. At this level of skill, a cook is more likely to get their foot in the door at a higher class establishment, now working with more advanced tools, such as ovens, instead of simple fires.


Appropriate stuff
Given Mizahar's time period and technology, this is a list of appropriate ideas for me to potentially develop later
# Recipes (general) * * * *
# Recipes (long distance) * *
# Recipes (Campfire) * * *
# Baking without an oven *
# Spices (since Lhavit cuisine apparently contains a lot of them) * * *

Family
 
Arra Nightwhispers

Relationship: Mother
Status: Alive, with Tsari
Skills: 30 webbing, 20 riding
About: Arra grew up bruised, not just from falling off her horse but from the fists of her father. Her mother was likewise, and Arra could not have said which she hated more - him for hurting her, or her mother for letting it happen. Arra made herself a promise as she lay on her bed listening to her dad yell and nursing a broken arm. She would never stand by and let something like that happen to her own child, and if that meant never marrying then so be it.

That sort of declaration is easy enough to make at fifteen, but when Arra fell in love years later, she fell hard. Rias was no fighter, but he was clever and diplomatic and solved his problems with quiet words and fierce passion instead of fists and anger. By the time she became pregnant, his family had stopped pestering Rias to woo her more and in this or that way, and started smugly referring to her as 'of the Topaz Clan', and jokingly telling Rias to marry her already, before she changed her mind. It was the family of her dreams, and when he asked that she go back with him she said yes without the slightest thought for her mother.

The night before the wedding though, Arra, heavy with child and nerves, changed her mind. Rias had never hit her or even given the slightest indication that the idea would be anything other than horrifying to him, but marriage would still remove any chance to escape, if she needed to. In the end, more out of fear for herself than the sacrifice she told herself she was making for her child, Arra packed her things, went to her Strider and slipped out in the dead of night.

From there it was a long, painful road to Lhavit.
