If we're going that far with that masks I think I'll have to sit this one out. I'll still watch, though.

also unironically OOC that image creeps me out why do people wear that shit

I'm sure you can easily go with a plain version of these too. Ought to be permissible.

Oh, dear.

Meanwhile, Mervay, I have given the Selkie a Mask-Tradition, which I hope is acceptable for them to wear.
The Teressians and Kyrenaians will stick to the Venetian Style Masks, though.
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.
My people are called the Selkie, the nation is usually called the Free Lands in MT-settings. Thanks.

In my case, it'll be gas masks. Solidarity thing because The Coof is still around elsewhere. Hypothetically, I could have them using Venetian-style masks instead, but again, Age of The Coof.

Having recently joined an RP with him and Palmyrion as the primary players, there is a part of me inclined to agree...big question would be how Mervay would take a Cassadian high official--take note that his nation is a slaver state, among other things--wanting in.

I am not sure yet what to go with. Exilvania has a mask culture but it is one of necessity rather than...well...culture culture.

Considering Quassadia, well, I have not interacted with the vast majority of players here so the significance of this escapes me. I personally have yet to commit to a proper, up to date restructuring of my factbooks, lethargy be damned, and am well aware that the Regent Dictator has been doing his utmost to ensure a better public image of the Exilvanian nation...but we ain't no nice state either.

Let's just say that Qassadia has a bit of an IC reputation, to put it delicately.

Man, I never got to talk to Qassadia in my other encounter, which does recycle some characters if only I had responded in a more timely manner. I do have some, uh, OOC knowledges pertaining to his presence in my Region (after we moved offsite), but I won't mention it any unless he does something stupid or asks me for some ungodly reason, but I'm sure he's the sanity to know better. Now, whether Kebechet will take kindly to him is another matter, considering her eccentricities, but that's where the fun lies. As for masks, I've not much special except for Cirque du Soleil masks, which are just Venetian masks anyway.

If Princess Von Pceacekraft is attending than it is probably better that Marcella isn't attending.

I can assure you that Euphemia is nothing like her older sister Cornelia. She's quite elegant and lady-like in her conduct when compared to her other siblings, with the possible exception being Relena.

Looking at my roster, I'm coming in with a fair amount of emotional baggage, and a tiny voice in the back of my head is demanding that I invite the Argonautai despite only two of them mattering in the grand Ezharan scene anymore. Course, don't think it'd be as much of a matter as, ah, certain folks from Qassadia, evidently.
