IC: *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? Candidly -Ser Elizah R.

IC: As the citadel clears and the guests depart with full bellies, the lights in the hall fade to red. The Fool nods in acknowledgement and heads on their way to see what Fate has in store for them next. Elizah, Hedda & Irri spend the evening putting Bones citadel back in order, the lack of chatter makes ignoring the ominous scratching coming from the basement hallway harder to ignore though they decided it best to leave that to Bones to investigate.. OOC: Now that a few days have past the Tales of a Tea-totaler staff wanted to extend our many thanks and appreciation for everyone who made this past weekend a possibility. What started as an idea from a small IC interaction came full circle and it wouldn't have been possible without all of you! The list of individuals to thank is lengthy but we could not have pulled this off without the assistance of Keith C., Ben L. & Matt H. being our full time NPCs prior to and throughout the event. Our part-time npcs who spent time dealing, tarrot reading, serving, cleaning and more throughout the day including; Greg F., Sean F., MJ R., Kelsey M., James M., Alyssa W., Katherine, B & those who stayed to help clean up after the event including Becky B. and Peter B. And last but certainly not least thank you to the players who came out and spent the day with us and engaged with our plot and ate our tasty treats. If you have a moment, we would appreciate any feedback or realmsnet reviews on the event. Thanks again, we look forward to being able to host another event in the future. 🫖✨
