Christmas Ball at the Estate

Author Post
sophiaunderwood Lord and Lady Fillintheblank request the attendance of all their freinds in Tyrhampton and Oakston at the Ball at their Estate on Sunday 10th of December current, at 3'o clock pm ((EST)).

Derbyshire, December, 1806

(( Below is a link to a great list of period traditions for the holiday. Lord and Lady F will have a Christmas tree, but this was a new practice and lower class characters might not even recognize it, while other characters might view it as a pagan blight on a religious observance! And there will of course be plenty of wassail to go around!

Grizella Campbell-Coffin ((Hey, everyone-due to some unforseen circumstances, the lovely sophiaunderwood won't be around for the first two hours of the ball. She's asked me to be around for the first two hours to assist newer players, so Lord Marchmont [appearing in-client as "Count Patrick Marchmont"] will be around for any questions, as well as to [out of character] time the dances if the dancing minigame [which only accomodates four players per turn] is foregone, which is what we have done in the past for balls. You can find an introduction to Lord M in the Character Introductionshere:

Grizella Campbell-Coffin ((The ball starts in about 15 minutes! I'll be giving everyone a half-hour to get in, get situated, and find partners. The first set will then begin and be timed at a half-hour [the minigame only accomodates four people and doesn't really work] to give people plenty of time to talk, etc. I'll be shouting OOC to ensure I'm heard. I look forward to seeing all of you!))

sophiaunderwood (( Yes, Grizella thank you thank you thank you for helping run point in my absence! My aunt passed and the funeral was of course scheduled for the exact time I planned on starting the ball. I'm so bummed I couldn't be more present for the UK players but I hope everyone had a good time! I know there were some IC comments about not knowing the vicar Mr. Creasey and there not being enough men in general.... But we tried really hard to put together an event that everyone on either side of the pond could enjoy and I'm disappointed it didn't work out better... ))

HeHa ((I thought it turned out well! I only made the joke about the vicar because Miriam and Kendra had been joking about finding one as a romantic partner before- not because I thought the game was lacking))
