WIWTG: Feast of the Leviathan XX

It is difficult to capture in words the landmark of the Realms that Feast of Leviathan has become.  In the middle of the coldest months, our community comes together to celebrate and to socialize.  Are you looking for good food?  You can have it.  Perhaps the short days and long nights have you itching to fight?  There are tournaments and the occasional bad guy to try and disrupt our revelry.  Perhaps you consider yourself good at cards.  Here is your chance, with an open casino and the Realms Stacked Deck Tournament’s season opener.  Maybe you have some gold and are looking to peruse merchants for some new items?  How about some carnival games of skill?  Those are there as well.

There are also other games (try out Merchant Barons).  There will likely be singing, stories.  There are Knightings on occasion.  There are raffles to win amazing prizes.  The View from Valehaven will be handing out its awards.

Or, to make a short story long…  This event has just about anything and everything you would want a mid winter event to have.  After 20 years of throwing this event, Rhiassa has become well skilled at bringing to the hall a level of entertainment and spectacle that can appeal to just about anyone.  Do as much, or as little, as you want.  Bring your family (children are welcome), bring your friends.  And definitely bring your appetite.  This feast tends to be innovative not only in the entertainment provided, but also with the food plated before you.

With this many people, the hall can be noisy.  The hall can be crowded.  But this is a testament to how good and how beloved the event is.  So get you best garb, shine up our favorite drinking container, and stop by.  It will be worth it.
