the parties were bigger

8

New York, 1922, the tempo of the city had changed sharply. Stocks reached record peaks, and Wall Street booms a steady golden roar. The buildings were higher, the parties were bigger, the morals were looser, and the ban on alcohol had backfired, making the liquor cheaper. Wall Street was luring the young and ambitious, and I was one of them.

Things That Shelter In Caves

@dragonagedmage

He was there because there were whispers that it was darkspawn, but so far as he could sense, there was nothing. He walked the rocky crags, slowly descending alone into the cavern. A lone warden for a simple trip.

He had not expected the storm. In truth, he should have. He had grown up Dalish and he should be able to tell by now when in Falon’Din’s name it was going to rain, but it was rather too late to care much anymore. Instead he gave a soft sigh, inching further down the ledge, his warden armor soaking through and his senses dimmed and dull. 

It was not that darkspawn had been attacking. If that was the case, they would have sent more. He was merely scouting alone, checking in to see if a bigger party was necessary. After all, there were only so many wardens. 

He could hear something though, further in, just under the rumble of the thunder outside, and so he traversed. If it was darkspawn, he would sense it soon, and then he would kill it. If not…well…he should at least get to the bottom of this mystery once and for all.

Galaxas rustled around in her tent as she grabbed every last potion bottle she could find. Tonight was a pretty big deal as a lot of renowned alchemists would be there, and if there was one thing she loves talking about, it was potion techniques. Most of these were for party fueling…heavy narcotics for bigger races and lighter meade type potions for the delicate folks. She smiled thinking about the time a blood elf got into one of her stronger drinks…he thought he was a kodo for a full week. 
Her few months of potion test work were tucked safe in her bags, and she headed off to the designated spot in Orgrimmar, where all the other trolls would be gathered to start the festivities; as the night carries on, many more races will join as well. There were even several alliance spotted at these night raves before. There would be food, strong herbs to smoke, and plenty of delicious potion samples for people to get completely wasted off of. These parties were what she practically lived for these days, as these people were willing to try anything in this mood. She had quite a few new concoctions she wanted to try out on people.
The spot was the slums where the ‘undesirables’ of Orgrimmar usually hung out, just west of the huge bunker the warchief was found in. It was a nestled enough spot to where not much noise carried over to bother people who wanted nothing to do with this type of drabble. Galaxas laid a blanket out near the dirty water’s edge and set up her bottles neatly on a little stand she had made herself. Already she could see people’s eyes lighting up at her…she already had made quite a name for herself from prior gatherings. There were people all over the place already as well. If trolls were good at anything, it was getting shit started ASAP. She began to relax and chat with people as they passed by. holding whatever choice they made to dull their senses for the night.
