PostSubject: The Rideps Family Manor   Tue Jun 30, 2015 2:06 am

First topic message reminder :

A large mansion in the middle of (BLAH) Forest, it is rumored to have stood on this land since before the first trees grew in the area. The outside has a rustic look, with ivy climbing some of the walls in a tasteful manner. It seems it may have been put there intentionally, decades past.

The inside, while gigantic, is very well kept. It has a sprawling underground, with only the residents really knowing how many rooms there may be. The largest, however, is the library. The hall of records for all things necromancy, or related to such.  Painstakingly gathered by the family over the years, it also includes incident reports for a myriad of things.  There is no way someone could go through it all in their lifetime.  Even walking the long and short of it in a day is taxing, ignoring all of the vertical space. Near the entrance are two weapon stands, labeled "Ouroboros" and "Scheherazade". Weapons forged by the smith Kuro generations ago to help the family in their efforts to keep the undead in check, and serve the good of the nation. The halberd Ouroboros hangs on its rack, barely touched for years. Scheherazade's rack, however, is empty, as Amelia Rideps has taken it as her weapon of choice.

Despite the cleanliness, there are drastically fewer living here than there were not too long ago. Many of the servants, created over the generations, were unmade recently. There are more guests than workers now, though they help out.  Several of the bedrooms are left eerily undisturbed, as well.  And another goes unused for long stretches, and then is torn to pieces before sitting empty again.

"Maybe, maybe not." She looks around with her. "I never thought Maple would take me to live in such a swanky place like this~" She comments as she pecks her husband's cheek.

"Understandable, I suppose. Manors aren't strictly commonplace, and ones like this... it's just stunning."

"Well, it's been well taken care of. Would you believe it was built before this forest even grew? Because I didn't. But eventually, Yanshi found the pictures to rub in my face."

Marie reaches out to touch the walls. "Very well maintained! The nobility I know of with bloodlines this old..." Seems she's let slip that she's not one of the elites of Berkshire.

Malphas shrugs. "They didn't have servants who were still working multiple generations later."

Marie nods, although deep down she wonders if perhaps some of the Berkshire elites have secretly employed vampires like Elene.

"Honestly, it needs a bit more work. I've been considering actually hiring some people for a while, so Morgan doesn't have to help clean all the time." He laughs. "You think any of your old servants might want jobs away from town?"

"Hu and Tad certainly would love to... as of last I heard from them. Say, do you think I could start learning how to use a weapon? Just in case."

"I'm sure she'll do just fine." Marie smiles, then sits up as she remembers. "Oh! Yes, one more thing. Do you have suitable stationery?"

"Heheh, it'll be good practice if her kid ever wants practice one day... Stationery? I think Mother left me some last time she was here 'cuz I told her I was running out last time... I'll go get it for you." Morgan heads out of the room with a grin.

"Wonderful. Bronze is the color of the family crest. Proving I know that makes my identity... more certain, within certain boundaries." Marie smiles sheepishly. "I've fallen out of practice with pseudo-political letters. I'm... a bit nervous, truth be told..."

He pats her shoulder. "I'm not too good at it either. Maybe Morgan will be able to proofread it for you?"

"...I hope so." She looks uncertain. "Thank you for everything. I must start deciding what to write."
