She's becoming known for her artistic talent and love of theatre and the arts, as well as for being highly social, charismatic and confident in her very French sensibilities. Family Connections: Vague rumours of connections to numerous French nobility, but facts unknown to all but a few - she's a mystery for the solving! If you're from France or have visited regularly, you might have seen her attending the theatre, particularly vaudeville with the famed Grace Elliott or her noble companions. Conversation Starters: * Art - she strongly resembles a muse for notable French painters * Poetry & Literature - fantastical tales, fiction, romances and bawdy passages * Flirting both subtle and overt * Botany & natural sciences * Tales of adventure and impossible odds * Her sudden arrival from France & turning down a marriage proposal * why she was absent from the Newmarket races * her new Artists' Quarterly publication (please submit your neat stuff!) * invitations to salons, outings, balls/soiree, tea, events of all kinds * she just moved into a new home in London (Maison Grace) Upcoming Events: The Queen's Reception: She will be débuting this season. The Everbloom Ball: Looking for a dance with this beautiful Lady at the Everbloom Ball? She accepts. Welcome to DM to outline their interactions for future letters & intrigue or connections. Sunderlin Ghost Hunt: More interested in socializing than hunting for spirits, but she will be heading up a seance for fun and scares. One seat left at the table - will it be for you?

I thought it would be fun and encouraging to create an in-game collection of works from the visual artist characters. I know a few of us have been including small drawings or paintings as tokens with letters and that several characters are listed as either artists or patrons to the arts. This could be a great resource for connecting those patrons to your character, having some publishing clout, and an excellent conversation starter for commissions or complements - perhaps even an intriguing way to pass hidden messages. It could potentially act as a catalogue for in-game purchases as well... so much possibility! I'd like to make it available for anyone to get a copy whether or not they contribute a piece of art, and if you as a player want your original piece either returned to you or forwarded on to another character (such as a buyer or even *gasp* an anonymous token) that could be fun too. - Mitzie (Arabella Ashbrooke)

Highly organized Virgo here, loves office supplies & neatly chaotic piles. I'm curious how everyone is tracking who's who and how they're connected; how you're planning to keep conversation threads, gossip, and all that organized for yourself. There's a wonderfully high number of names and titles to sort out. My Society Gazette No. 1 copy is now highlighted, with an intense amount of sticky notes with topics & people of interest to my character. I'm tempted to create a visual map of where everyone is as well, as I learn it, just to help my picture-fueled brain make it easier to remember.
