Once our appetites had been fully worked up, after a day of fighting and dancing, feast was served by our very talented kitchen staff, and head feastocrat.

Between removes there was a parade of masks, where all who made a mask wore them in display for all to see, and showed them off to the royalty. Shortly thereafter, Lady Conandil, Lord Benjamin, and Lord Hectore Danced for the pleasure of the populace.

As a finale, Countess Catherine Fionne presented the populace with a masterfully created Pisces Birthday cake and we all sang happy birthday to the many Pisces in the room.
