Hey this is Romano & Serbia here!
Aaaand I'm looking for plots! And not just any kinds of plots, but plotty plots! Ideally I'm looking for something to progress some kind of storyline going on here. Though honestly I'm also open to silly plots too those are fun as well. But continuing on~
Romano is one of our two Draconians and he's a lower level bureaucrat so he has access to information that might be valuable, or might be completely irrelevant like plans for improving the sewer system. Either way.
And Serbia (Milos) is a Ruthian so he's very much down with getting dirty or doing any kinds of illegal contracts. Or just going to the bar and drinking beer and picking a fight. He's versatile.
So if anyone is interested in doing a thread with me please reply and see what we can cook up!

I'd like to plot something with Lovino, yes~ Antonio would be quite interested in said information, even if it's little, but I'm not sure how he'd feel about a friendship with a pirate. Probably bad about it. Still, I'd like to thread something, even if it's a meeting of some sort.

Putting this here for reference:
Ahh, I had posted in your thread about it, honestly, not sure if you saw! You said there that Lovi was a Draconian and bureaucrat, so we could work on something along those lines? Perhaps he's after Antonio for a theft, or he has some information Antonio wants... Maybe something about the cargo that arrives at the docks, or some machine that would improve his ship? Or just a random meeting, as Toni usually disguises himself as a noble. Oh, maybe Lovi found his documents suspicious somehow? Ideas, ideas.
You're quite the idea person, I like that! I don't think Lovino would be after Antonio for theft unless he stole something that belongs to him or his workplace. In the latter case he'd be chasing after him like a bat out of hell because that shit is kinda important.
It certainly is possible Lovino would have info Antonio would want, and if it's a seemingly innocent question like when cargo is coming in or something he might even go along with it. If he isn't too busy telling him to fuck off first ahaha :'D He could certainly tell him about who the best inventors are, for a price. And of course, random meetings are always a fun plot device.
More in general, they'd certainly have an interesting relationship. Part of me is pretty sure Lovino would not want anything to do with Antonio if he knew he were a pirate, at least not off the bat. If they became friends and then he found out, he'd be conflicted/betrayed/etc. It'd be fun, basically.
In other words, there's a lot of possibilities here and I like the sound of all of them xD But each one will prolly change the nature of their relationship to each other. Stealing something from Lovino is a pretty great way to get on his shit list, though it is possible to get back into his good graces eventually. Random encounters and info-getting, depending on how well they go would go a lot further to getting on his good side. I'm up for anything so I guess right now I just wanna know what you think at this point.

Well, I don't think Antonio would have anything to steal from him, too... Who knows? I like the idea more of Antonio sweet-talking Lovino into handing out casual information such as "Oh, a new cargo? So you work there then? Hmm... Tell me more." but of course present himself as a noble. Which maybe would lead to Lovino investigating about him and finding out, but that's for another thread, later on!
I think we could start with.. well, something at the noble district, somewhere they both would be, and it starts as just a casual meeting — does Lovino wear any uniform for his job, or anything that gives it away? Antonio could start a talk by there. Then toni can ask his questions, try to get the guy on his good side, and we'll see how lovi reacts from there. Heck, that's what I think, what do you say?

I'd love to see Antonio try and sweet talk Lovino. Not sure how well that'd work for him before he's shot down, but no matter the outcome the process would be fun! Having it in the Noble District would work fine, though Lovino doesn't spend a ton of time there as he lives int he North Res area so he'd be there en route to some place else. As for uniform, unfortunately there is no obvious marker of Draconian-ness. Lovino actually really prefers no one knows who he's working for; he typically just says he works for a transport company though how many know the truth is up in the air.
The only way I can think of Antonio knowing who he's affiliated with would be outside info he already got from somebody. Perhaps Lovi knows something in particular Antonio is interested in? And in his quest for that info he's directed the Italian's way by informants. Lovino would have access to some seemingly innocent info like transport schedules which would be a lot less innocent in the hands of a pirate. So then it's less of a 'chance meeting' and more of a planned chance meeting I suppose. Thinking about it, at that point they could probably 'bump into' each other anywhere in the city like maybe a currently empty sub-board :'D

I like that idea, so ok, It can work that way then: Antonio wants to steal this cargo from another nobleman (or a pirate, doesn't matter but it's a valuable cargo), and the informants he has points him to the Italian, offer a small description and that way, he knows what he has to say, and who to say it too. Yes, we're getting far!
And, in that case, they could bump into each other in the N. Residential street anyway! I see that you have an open thread there, if you want we can even use that, too. Toni would be walking around, more or less searching but pretending to be your local noble on an afternoon walk, and kinda starts a talk with the nice-looking, perhaps-lost Italian. Totally innocent... >->"

I like your idea~ If you wanna use that open thread for this I think that'd work. It'd add an interesting fold to the mix as Lovino there currently (a)has a concussion and (b)is very paranoid cause he nearly just died. But, I think Toni has a better shot at getting information out of him this way if he's careful and has no scruples. So yeah, if you like this idea then go ahead and reply to that thread.
