    The Hedge Patrol, a now routine part of life for the Freehold, normally the lost would gather beneath Funderland's offices, and enter through the Hedge Gate there. Funderland and the area around might be their immediate concern, but it wasn't the only concern. With a pattern established and the familiar hedge around the seat of their Freehold kept clean and safe. It was now time to Patrol other areas.

    It was time to go to Capitol Park.

    QuoteQuote:
    "Special points of interest, memorials, and monuments are tastefully incorporated into Capitol Park to remind us of our history and natural beauty. Visitors can sit under trees that were thought to be extinct, enjoy a pond surrounded by draping foliage while viewing living and static memorials, or relax during lunch under the shade of trees which are the largest of their kind in the state. Walkways crisscross the park, enabling visitors more opportunities to view its bounty."
    Underneath the bounty, the beauty and the memory, lays a well known Trod, with well known risks. If hte Lost are unwilling to take the risk, a door can be opened near enough.





    Okay here’s the opening of the newest Hedge Patrol, please include your Equipment, Health and WP with every post!

    Y'all can choose to spend 1 Glamour to open a Door, and cross into the Hedge that way, or use the Trod!

    An alluring young beauty, Sonnie Wu is 5'2" and lean-bodied, with a light, nimble step and eyes that seem to say "Hey, you know what would be fun?" Her reddish-brown hair often seems slightly unkempt, and an amused smile regularly plays on her lips. Sonnie is usually dressed casually or for outdoor activity. She almost always wears a pair of red leather tabi boots.
    Mien:

    To the eyes of Fae, Sonnie's feet are like those of a monkey: Toes as long as fingers, with one on each foot being opposable like a thumb. A long monkey tail protrudes from the base of Sonnie's spine, covered in hair the same shade as her head. It appears to be prehensile, and often moves to react to her mood and dances about when she speaks, like people who "talk with their hands." Finally, her brown eyes turn golden.
    Mundane Equipment:

    Smart phone, messenger bag, quarterstaff, 2 throwing knifes (concealed), 3 goblin fruit (changes by season), mountain bike.

    Sonnie arrived at the park, dressed for hiking, more or less. Blue jeans, a red flannel shirt under a green zip-up hoodie, and her hedgespun boots. Her messenger bag was slung across her back. Her reddish-brown hair was worn in twin braids, and a black beanie adorned her head.

    Often, she'd explode onto the scene with an enthusastic greeting for everyone present. However, she was the first to arrive, this time. Nobody to greet. The Beast blew a raspberry and settled in to wait for her fellow... patrolers? Was that the right word?

    Her skin turns a slate-blue and her hair bone white. The whites of her eyes are blood red, the irises are purple with cat-slit black pupils. The helix of her ears elongate out 2" inches ending in a tip. Her features sharpen and her figure has an unnatural, inhuman litheness that can be intellectually disturbing.

    Her skin brings to mind Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, or Asian races, though her high cheek bones and sharp facial structure don't match. Most assume she is of mixed ancestry given the pale blonde hair.

    Circe was armed for bear, and aught else that might disagree with her safely traveling the Hedge. Unfortunately, it was somewhat conspicuous to be carrying out in the Iron Side public space, so the elfin Fairest was restricted to carrying most of it in a large gym bag until they got outside the outside.


    As it was, the Fairest had gotten looks from the trench coat, though the flashes of tight black beneath would dissuade prudish public from pestering her. The sole exception had been a woman that'd asked her if she was interested in fur as well as leather. A simple no had driven the woman away.


    Approaching the gate, she heard a sound that made her ears twitch. Circe had a good guess of who was first. Rounding the monument, she laughs. "Well, I guess Wu is on first. I'm on second, and I don't know is on third right?" She walks up to Sonja, Good ta see ya and yer prepared."

    Mien: Liam's skin is hardened into a bark-like armor with pine cone-like ridges throughout. His hair is made of pine needles that act a bit like a hedgehog's quills; standing up when agitated or smooth when calm. His eyes are a deep amber and his tears appear to have the consistency of sap until they leave his face.

    Mantle: The scent of pine sap in a close radius, his needle-like hair ripples occasionally as if tugged by a light breeze.

    Liam was running a bit behind; he'd had to make sure Templeton was set up with a caretaker and was well fed and watered while the Giant was gone. But when you're as big as he is, you don't have to run as much as power walk to wherever you need to go.

    "Sonnie! Circe! Hello there." He's not too out of breath, and genuinely excited to see a new group of friends to brave the Hedge together. Especially given that these two were some of the more formidable fighters of the Freehold. Here's hoping we don't have to make use of that. ​"So, where are we starting?"

    The Lost are set, poised and prepared!


    Someone needs to roll Wyrd if you wanna slip through the Trod, and take those risks. Or you can find something else to use as a Door, with either a Wyrd roll, or a spending of Glamour.

    "I'm sorry, Gran-Gran, I don't understand your jokes from the 1920s," she chuckled at Circe. "I'm always prepared, like a Girl Scout! I even have twenty boxes of tagalongs at home."

    The Beast waved as Liam arrived, "We could slip through one of the restroom stalls, if it's empty," she suggested. Safer than the trod, though that didn't make much sense to her. Shouldn't the trod be the safer route? The Hedge was weird.

    "Anyway," she continued, "wanna go scout out the toilets?"

    "Ha! Ya should of brought some, leave a trail Gretel," she laughs at Sonja. As for the bathroom option, Circe doesn't care as she shrugs, "I hafta get dressed on the other side anyway. One place is as good as another ta me. I packed things not suitable fer public places."


    She waves her hand towards the trod, "This one is already here. Unless ya need ta go potty, might as well use this one," Circe shoulders her bag and reaches inside, gripping the pistol, whlist her left hand reaches for the Trod's gate.


    If neither Liam nor Sonja Wu stops her, she is going to open the Trod.

    Then Circe growls as her Mantle flares at her failure.

    Liam grimaces at the thought of sneaking around public restrooms. "That's...a thought. But maybe we should try our fortunes with the less smelly entrance?"

    Liam flinches at Circe's outburst. How did she do it? Like this...? The Ogre reaches out with an almost childlike curiosity and sets his massive palm on the Trod gate. And against all hope...it reacts. Liam flinches backwards in surprise as the veil between Earth and Arcadia parts, and he looks to his fellow Lost. "Hey! Look at that. It worked! Let's go!"

    Sonnie shrugged as her bathroom stall door idea was shot down. The consensus seemed to want to trod it.

    Yeah, that's right,
    trod is a verb now.


    It always was. She wasn't a dictionary.

    Readying her staff, just in case, the Beast stepped through the faerie gateway.
