Shieldmeet (For the House of the Triad Folks)

Postby Waldron » Sun Jul 31, 2011 11:58 am

Shieldmeet is not as important a time for a Tormite as it is to a Helmite, but it is a time of loyalty and respect, fulfilling and renewing oaths, and marrying.
That being said, Clara decides a gesture of good will be offered to all of those she knows who follow any deity within the House of the Triad. Notes are left for anyone she is not able speak to personally (at Chapterhouse receptions, and the like), and those that are, are told a seat is available to them either way. Among those she attempts to contact are; Evander, Lady Alimandra, Kavir, and finally Elder Perenold. The same offer is made to Lord and Lady Hawkwinter and even Ezule, but she's aware that they may be too busy with Shieldmeet preparations, given it's importance to his deity. Finally, although falling under none of the associated deities, Talinor is offered a position similarly, given his renewed status.
The offer is small and simple: Clara is opening her house to said people [and any others who fall under Torm, Tyr, Ilmater or Helm] where a feast will take place, simply to renew old and new friendships, and to try and offer a night of relaxation and happiness. A night where squires, masters, elders, brothers and anything else can share a meal of joy and good will, before returning to their daily business the next day.
Clara only asks that you bring your happiness, and perhaps a chair if you can (and finally, a favor from Lady Alimandra to perhaps try and not dampen the spirits with too many comments to Cassandra, and vice versa!).

[This is just a bit of flavor I had in mind. Feel free to post your actions on what happened during the Cleric's dinner (if you decided to show up!).]

Elder Perenold certainly attends, he sits politely, always smiling and making polite conversation with those who arrive.

Then when Talinor arrives he smile further, regalling the crowd with stories of his life in arms within his crusading years, painting vivid pictures of humor times at the fire, skirting from talk of battle. Then moves on to life in the docks of Calimsham, sharing with them tales of the women there, the Paschas, the pirates..

And then Jax proceeds to inform them of Mavery's intense heroism the other day....

(Talk to Mave for details)

Evander arrived sans, armor with a special surprise guest in tow, His lovely wife Keth'ean clearly showing signs of her pregnancy. Evander greeted Clara warmly and begged forgiveness for the additional guest however she had been eagerly hoping to meet many of the assembled guests. The pair bring a couple of chairs and the domesticated Keth'ean brings a pair of warm meat pies to aid in the festivities. When they arrive they immediately split off and go through the room warmly greeting. Once settled Keth'ean eagerly tells the others of various heroic tales of her husband and the associated members such as Talinor and she shows a great deal of deference and affection towards both Talinor and Perenold. Evander pulls Clara off to the side briefly to thank her warmly for the invitation and congratulates her on a wonderful idea designed to pull people together.

Cassandra feels out of place among all this, but she still supports Clara sitting quietly and listening to the tales each person brings. At one point the giantess even provides a huge platter filled with slices of well-tenderized meat along with a large pot of gravy filled with diced carrots and potatoes. Now what could have provided such a large amount scrumptious meat Cassandra kept a mystery, but she's happy that no one seems displeased with her hard work.

Shieldmeet being a day of great religious significance to followers of deities of Duty, Bill is busy at the usual Dawn, but also at Noon, Dusk and Midnight with prayers, attempting to enter a Shieldmeet contest between, and duties at the Chapterhouse of the Knightly Order to which she wishes to pledge.
It is likely she is too busy to attend, but will send her best wishes.

A few surprising guests, and a few who were missed dearly during the feast, all went well in the Ailiss household. Fortunately a few extra seats were brought to fit all around the table in her humble abode, and the celebrations did not interfere with the extra prayers Clara performed that day.
She listened intently to Elder Perenold's stories of his travels and triumphs, rather pleased that he could make it during his tenday off. He was offered many thanks at the entrance.
Shedding any hints of embarrassment, it was a special day and she was equally as greatful that Lord and Lady Hawkwinter could make it to the small feast, considering how busy a time it was for them. She was best pleased, and content to listen to Mavery as everyone was sharing stories. It was a wonderful thing to see.
To Brother Evander (whom she considered much higher up than that), she welcomed as warmly as the others and waved off his apologies with a cheerful smile, greeting his wife fondly and offering many congratulations to her! She let them settle, and being taken to the side to talk to Evander, it only increased her good spirits as she thanked him eternally for his kind words.
Cassandra helping out was much needed, as there were more guests than Clara had expected to arrive. The meat added to the rest of the feast, and the night went down without a hitch.
It was a shame that Bill could not make it, so as a further gesture of goodwill some of the feast is wrapped up and offered to her at the chapterhouse, for when she gets a moment from her busy duties.

Well, perhaps of no surprise, the shiny cleric was late for the party.

He was all laughter, and grins. And offered to tell tales if others were interested.

"Silverymoon, Waterdeep, Evander tied up and getting bea...um oops that was their wedding night, I mean they are imat...the elder is behind me right?
so uhh the first goblinoid war around silverymoon.. um.. no it was a false hood that last year for one of the holidays I was found drunk and half naked in the morning... I was clearly all naked..."
