Early in the morning, a young elf woman is seen at the Sapphire Lily, clutching a small piece of parchment and staring at the notice board in the tavern. She sighs and begins to rearrange the haphazard array of wanted posters, official missives, scraps of the newspaper, requests for "lumbur", chancellor posters, advertisements, and so on. Eventually, she manages to clear a small amount of space and, satisfied with her work, gently posts a note written in black ink on fine paper.
The note reads:
"To celebrate the Night of the Dancing Shadows, Master Étienne Travairs will be sending his apprentice Annaleigh Sibirica to practice her portraiture skills on the second day of holiday, slightly after mid-day. She will be charging an amount of 20 caps per portrait."
The woman stops to talk to the tavern keeper and have a small drink before heading back into the town proper.
