Harrune sees Rogbar's entrance, and then notices Lyra and Ayum attempting to get his attention. He clearly debates with himself for a few second, and then heads to join the later group.

"Lord Cameron McAllister and Lord Darnell"

The announcement makes the broad orc duck his head with a grunt, then with a smooth motion he slips out of his greatcoat and passes it to a passing attendant. it takes a moment for him to get the lay of the land, surveying the crowd with one eye even as he nods to Darnell.

"I suppose I should go mingle," he mutters quietly, nervously stroking the beaded tuft of copper goatee on his chin before steeling himself and seeing who all he recognizes. And hoping, if he can, to avoid Dworkin for the time being. Happy he may seem to be, but there was still a bit of soreness over his last time here.

(OOC: Barring any interception, Cameron/Kamron will make something akin to a beeline to wherever he can get ale, wine, beer, or a distilled spirit. He seems a strange combination of socially astute and awkwardly self-aware.)

Rasanam makes his way from his discussion with Morgana and Raven towards the refreshments table, aiming to arrive at about the same time Cameron acquires his (first) drink.

Rogbar the Mighty makes a small nuisance of himself, the cat checking the guest ledger. He will mumble something like a swear under his breath, before relaying a little information to Aibne and almost tackling Darnell. A short exchange later they (Darnell and Rogbar) vanish in a pop of multicolared sparks.

After having been intercepted by Ossian, Alys takes a few moments to look around for a place to sit - glancing first at Oberon's table; if Oberon notices and waves her over, she'll head there. Otherwise, she'll pick out the table of minor nobles that looks to have the largest amount of actual combat competence.

Edit: Waved over by Oberon; continuing here.

Serving time is drawing close. (Probably still a few days, or perhaps after the weekend.)

There are several tables that have openings for people to sit. (Feel free to make threads, or PM me, and I'll make the thread.)
  • Morgana and Rasanam are at the mysterious Table in the Corner
  • Oberon is hanging out with a group of random nobles. Mostly carousing and some dinner.
  • Teresa and Nathaniel Orr as well as a few other merchants, including the Silverbars and Harrune are discussing options.
  • The Shadow Striders (Grumbling about Rogbar the Mighty's new crush.)
  • Father-Confessor Lane is talking to Guildmaster Teusus at one table.
  • A small group of off duty guards of Amber at at one table.
  • Make up your own. There are plenty of tables left for PCs.
  • Oh yeah, and the 3 empty thrones at the 'front' of the room.

It is time for dinner. Feel free to run through the courses at your own pace.

Second course (first seated course) is a choice of soups. Consommé Olga or Cream of Barley.

Third course offers a choice of meats. In particular: Creole Shrimp-Lamb Dumplings, Austrian Chocolate Burrito, or Indonesian Rice Chili Con Carne.

Salad/Fruit is is Grilled Fruit over grilled lettuce.

As a note: All ingredients are fresh picked. Even stuff that doesn't grow in the winter. Or ripen at the same time. Or come from the same continent.

The main (third / meat) course comes out with an extra place setting for Alys' table. A few minutes later, Rogbar reenters the room in a small storm of snow. He's got ice and frosting on his whiskers, fur and clothing and limps over to the table with the dragon sculpture.

A minute after the specticle with Rogbar, Ossian will look up with a confused face, then will reach up and pull Darnell out of a small burst of multi-colored sparks in midair. The elf will dust some snow off his coat, and settle down with the elder fae for a talk.
