[For all] Picnic in Forest

Chiang the Strong watched the two veterans walk away. Even though they had long since proven themselves, Chiang was still a little reluctant to entrust his yubos and he had harassed them at length to make sure they understood the importance of their mission. And although a bit whimsical, they had demonstrated all the qualities required for this great day.
All that remained to be done was to write and put up the posters, and the young refugees could, once again, take giant strides forward on this festive day.
Message from Chiang the Strong
Greetings to all of you, young refugees,

It is Refugees' Days again, and on this occasion, I invite you to join the picnic that will be specially organized for you on Mainland. This great feast, to which we invite all the homins, will allow you to acquire teleportation pacts that will be very precious to you after your departure from Silan. You will be able to rub shoulders with and meet homins from all nations and factions and perhaps create links for the future.

Meet Apocamus Driadus on 12h - Quarta, Medis 10, 1st AC 2608* at the bottom of my tower to check the final preparations and start a journey you won't forget!

Here is the translation of Lylanea's song.

"An Ode to your feet."

By Timil McInde, Bard of Fairhaven
Recorded by Lylanea Vicciona, Bard of Matia

/em plays a happy, swinging tune and sings

I saw a young maiden standing one day
on Fairhavens beach and my thoughts went astray.
As we lay in the sand, time flew by us
In the evening her father found us and cussed.

Sometimes it's good to be quick on your feet.
Sometimes life is not fair.
If your sword cannot save you,
Well friend let me tell you,
You’d give anything for a good pair.

Out into the world I went all alone,
met some bandits, they did seem quite strong.
"I’m stronger than you!" I laughed in their face.
They did not believe me, so I had to race.

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

In the jungles, I met a tall blue man.
His sword seemed quite sharp, but I laughed at him.
He bent down to grab me - us Trykers are small,
I rammed my helmet right to his *cough*

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

In the deep woods, I met a Matis.
Beautiful, wild and promising bliss.
That night at her home, the dress slid to the floor -
“she” was a man and me out the door.

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

In Fyros I stopped at an tavern fine
I ate two whole yubos, drank three gallons wine.
The innkeep then asked me to pay the full fee
I didn't have money, so I had to flee.

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

But the City Watch found me and took me to court
The judge said to me: "I have no doubt!
You are in for imprisonment!
/shout: Guards, seize him! -
Now, did anyone see where he went?"

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

Almost a year later I returned to my town,
A beautiful girl greeted me with a frown.
I said : “Pretty lady, what’s going on?!”
She held up a bundle: "This is your son."

Refrain (2 times):
Oooohhh, sometimes it's good to be quick ...

/em spoken as the melody fades out …

So let me tell you, hear what I say.
If misfortune follows you ever which way.
Then run really fast, hard as it may be
for only he who’s alive today
can be a hero tomorrow.
/em winks: You see?
