15th Anniversary Party

Thanks to the people who made it to last Tuesday's events committee meeting. We still need people to help in a couple of time slots for the events we've planned. We also need door greeters, people to show the way into the arch though we'll open it and put a sign out there.

The good news is that the GMs have OK'd the date of Friday, September 22 for our 15th Anniversary Party!

Here is a tentative schedule, let me know if the times conflict with your schedules, all times are Eastern, in deference to the elves:
7:00 pm - Welcome by Shirkon and Waldo2
7:30 pm - Prayer service and Blessing by Truekillr
8:00 pm - Arkati Trivia by Adyr, Barquentine and Rosamor
9:00 pm - Diving Contest by Shirkon
10:00 pm - Pass the hot potato contest by Guarrin and Rosamor
11:00 pm - Costume Contest by Mourdeyan and Guarrin
12:00 pm - Dance Contest by Rhamor

Decorations:
This is what you normally see:

[House Phoenix, Entry Court]
Between Wisraith Lane and the house, a quiet courtyard is situated. You also see a heavy slate blackboard, a massive entryway with the House Workshop bell on it, a gated modwir archway, the House Phoenix doorkeeper and a bronze plaque.
Obvious paths: west

[Phoenix Annex, Courtyard]
This serene courtyard contains an abundant variety of young trees and small flowering bushes. A dirt path lined with stepping stones leads from the archway to the main building. Off to one side of the path, you see some polished wooden benches placed near a grassy bank leading down to a small bubbling spring. You also see a willow tree and an oaken door.
Obvious paths: up

Can you change those two rooms for September 22nd to:

[House Phoenix, Entry Court]
Between Wisraith Lane and the house, a quiet courtyard with a large crimson banner is situated. You also see a heavy slate blackboard, a massive entryway with the House Workshop bell on it, a gated modwir archway, the House Phoenix doorkeeper and a bronze plaque.
Obvious paths: west

The large banner should read: "Welcome to the 15th Anniversary Party! Join us through the arch." We need the arch unlocked for that day. Can the doorkeeper bow and wave people toward the arch, or at least not lay down on the job?

[Phoenix Annex, Courtyard]
This serene courtyard contains an abundant variety of young trees and small flowering bushes. You see a large crimson dance tent festooned with garlands of acantha and torban leaves. A dirt path lined with stepping stones leads from the archway to the main building. Off to one side of the path, you see some polished wooden benches placed near a grassy bank leading down to a small bubbling spring. An imposing speaker's podium, a mahogany sideboard, a collosal cookie cart and a gold tray have been placed on the side. You also see a willow tree and an oaken door.
Obvious paths: up (If this is too much in one room, place the podium through the oaken door.)

For a special conmemorative item for sale: We were thinking that the house snowglobes from last year can be altered to be flames instead...

As Shirkon winds a key on the bottom of his charred fireglobe, some tiny flames inside begin to move around and grow. A firey phoenix rises inside in all it's glory. As the key winds down, the flames move slower and slower, until they finally stop.

Shirkon shakes his charred globe hard, causing the flecks of ashes inside to swirl in a wild frenzy, creating a small inferno around the crimson phoenix. Show or look description: A clear glaes globe sitting on a charred base. There is a key on the bottom, and the writing on the base is barely legible "...will rise from the ashes again - 15th Anniversary"
