EXCERPTED FROM VAL ROYEAUX: EXCESSES GRAND AND OTHER WISE BY (FORMERLY) SISTER LAUDINE
VAL ROYEAUX. ANY RESIDENT, A "ROYAN", WILL SAY IT IS THE GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD. MANY TAKE SUCH PRIDE FOR ARROGANCE, BUT THEY DO SO THROUGH SMILES AS THEY NOD IN AGREEMENT, FOR SUCH IS THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE CAPITAL. VAL ROYEAUX IS IN EVERY WAY. A WORLD LEADERIN COMMERCE, CULTURE, AND ITS OWN EXAGGERATED BEAUTY.
THE SITE WAS FOUNDED DURING EVRIONS GRAND UNIFICATION, THE RESULT OF A MIX OF INFLUENCES NOT SO MUCH. BALANCED AS DRIVEN TOGETHER. AND WHILE SUCH AN AMALGAMATION WOULD BE CAUSE FOR CHAOS ELSEWHERE, THE PROSPERITY OF THE REGION HAS ENABLED AN UPWARD SPIRAL OF INDULGENCE. THE CAPITAL HAS ENDURED THE AGES TO BECOME A BEACON OF CIVILIZATION, AND ITS CITIZENS THE MEASURE OF MODERNITY. JUST ASK THEM.
IT EXISTS HARMONIOUSLY BESIDE THE ARISTOCRACY AND THE PALACE BUREAUCRATS. INDEED, THE ARISTOCRACY TENDS TO INDULGE IN THE CITYS DARKER SIDE QUITE FREQUENTLY (IF DISCREETLY), AND THAT ONLY ADDS TO THE MYSTIQUE. NOBILITY ELSEWHERE TEND TO BE MUCH MORE CONSERVATIVE AND CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR REPUTATION, EVEN IF A TRIP INTO THE CAPITAL TO INDULGE A FEW PRIVATE PLEASURES IS NOT COMPLETELY OUT OF THE QUESTION.
INVAL ROYEAUX, TRANSGRESSIONS ARE SUFFERED AND FORGIVEN WITH FLAMBOYANT URGENCY. THAT IS NOT TO SAY THE CITY IS WITHOUT LASTING SCANDAL OR HARDSHIP; BUT ONE MUST SQUINT PAST THE GILDING TO BE ALLOWED EVEN A GLIMPSE, AS ROYANS ARE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT THE FACE THEY PRESENT. SUCH IT IS WITH THE MASKS OF NOBILITY AND THE UNDERBELLY OF THEIR STREETS.
A PLAQUE DEDICATING THE SUMMER BAZAAR, "FOR VICTORIES EARNED AND TO COME", PLACED IN 5:30 EXALTED.
WE REDEDICATE THIS JEWEL OF VAL ROYEAUX AS THE SUMMER BAZAAR OF THE FIRST LION, TO REFLECT THE SPIRIT OF RENEWAL THAT IS AT THE HEART OF THE CAPITAL AND OF OUR PEOPLE. LET THE STRENGTH OF THE FOUR ALWAYS GUARD THE GRACE OF THE EMPIRE. LET THE BLOSSOMS AND PROMISE OF THE CHANGING SEASONS BE A TRIBUTE TO TRADE AND PUBLIC GATHERING. FOR HERE, IN THE NAME OF THE LION VALMONT, WE WILL BEAN EXAMPLE TO THE WORLD OF HOW ORLESIANS RESPOND TO ADVERSITY.
OUR WAY CANNOT BE THREATENED, FOR IT EMBODIES THE TRUTH OF TRADITION AND THE PROMISE OF PROGRESS. THE BLIGHT FINDS NO PURCHASE IN THE HEART OF COMMERCE.
