Event Description

handwritten and posted across the Realms
You are cordially invited
Please join us in celebrating

I never really know how to start these things off, truthfully writing has never been my, but parties, now parties are my thing...anywho, Hedda & Irri say we need an official invitation for this so I guess here it is!
Last Fall, during our visit to Voraniss I chatted with the two Rākṣasa who made an appearance (i’d like to clarify at the time, Boyd and I didn’t know they were THOSE Rākṣasa - Sorry Kindrianna) but during our talks i’m told one thing led to another and ultimately we invited them to join us for a Tea Party in Bones’citadel in Nagina, so here we are!
We’re hosting a Tea Party and we’d love for you to join us! We’ll have guests of honor, games & tricks, drinks & treats, and more! I bet Blackwood could probably use an assist with the trees made of fire and the creatures roaming around Bone’s castle too! (Thankfully he has been a bit preoccupied with that so we’ve had plenty of time to take over and set up a bunch of new decor!)
Proudly sponsored by Irri & Elizah’s Tarot and Tea! OH and Hedda says she is taking over the kitchen so there is sure to be delicious fare served throughout the day. So, whaddya say.. Will you join us?
-Ser Elizah R.
