[EVENT, Day 4, Early Evening] The Feast Begins

Residence of the Elite Mirumoto House Guard. At least a quarter of the castle’s samurai sleep here at any given time. Accommodations are sparse, though not spartan. Most of the warriors here keep books in addition to typical mementos and necessities.

[EVENT, Day 4, Early Evening] The Feast Begins

Postby Kyujin » Mon Jan 16, 2017 8:09 am

Though the nights are growing longer and colder, there is fuel enough in the stores of Shiro Mirumoto that the guest can stay warm. Unfortunately, the limited space on the mountain top makes a more traditional Bowman's Wager impossible, but the pageantry of the Banquet is in full force. The stores of the castle are thrown wide to accommodate the delegations, with vast amounts of white rice and "fish" for the guests to consume. Fancier dishes and elaborate trays of sweets are on their own islands, the Ryorishi having outdone himself in the arrangement with what supplies he had access to.

The mess hall of the barracks has been converted to a sitting room, fanciful miniature tables set with delicacies and surrounded by pillows so that the guests can sit and eat. Vast quantities of alcohol are laid out in adjoining spaces where the guests can retrieve them at their convenience, or merely wait for one of the many servants to come around bearing trays of beverages.

The many servants who mill about make sure that plates do not remain empty, but clever eyes will note how some of them discretely cough to cover the sound of rumbling bellies. They go about their duties swiftly and efficiently, and most will pay them no mind.

Side rooms have been sequestered off so that any politics that take place, as such dealings are wont to do at a banquet, need not happen in the public eye. For the less concerned, various privacy screens are set up in the standing areas. The guards at the various entrances and exits stand at attention, but work the various posts in shifts so that they do not become idle.

Yukari arrived in her black kimono with silver ryu, her hair still decorated with small bells, and with no sign of her recent escapades in the village.

Her time in the village gave her some misgivings about the mere concept of a feast...

Yamada arrived at the feast. Her kimono was a soft mauve, scattered from her shoulder to the hem with white cherry blossoms. Her obi was a deep purple, tied simoly behind her back. White camelias decorated the dsrk folds of her hair and around her was the soft smell of jasmine.

She noticed Yukari had already arrived and quickly nods in greeting. "Remember, we still have our ride in the morning, you need your head for that."

Waito arrives early, bedecked in his finest. With an ensemble in entirely one shade of green, he secures himself a prominent berth at the feast.

The merchant placed the coins in the monk's hand, and to his delight, the man only smiled and handed out more.

Hagane entered fairly early on as well in her rather plain looking kimono, curious as to the festivities and the food itself. When she saw the meals were quite simple, she wasn't very disappointed. After all, any meal given was a blessing from Inari.

She makes her way to Yukari, as she was prone to sticking with her delegation, and takes a seat next to her.

Dressed with his court clothing, the Monk arrives alone and sits in the table designated to his own delegation. If one would pay attention (few do) they would realize the monk was moving slower than his usual self, as if he was in pain. Under his black kimono, the hint of bandages could be seen.
As he sits down, he pulls a small clay statue of Benten, which he puts on top of his delegation table. He closes his eyes while bowing his head to the small statue and begins a silent prayer as he waits for the festivities to roll on through.

Dotai wanders in shaking some of the snow out of his hair, his smile in place as he ignores the sting of the cold considering his loose style of clothing. He tilts his head and moves to sit beside Hagane.

Kuniken enters the impromptu feast hall, looking well and happy. Now where were the spiders, he needed to talk to the spiders of the prince, he hadn’t had a chance for that yet.

Nikako entered the hall, letting her eyes wonder for a moment taking in the sight. Unwilling, her eyes lingered a moment at the two spiders, or mostly one of them, before moving on. Such a display!

She moved inside. For this event, she wore a more brightly colored kimono of greens, yellow and orange, with a wide obi and full patterns. Her left shoulder was slightly bared, showing off the head of the dragon tattoo resting about her heart. This day, she was only wearing one tabi as well, showing off the dragons tail on her foot.

On her way to a table, she paused slightly passing a servant. Had she heard right? No, it couldn't be.. She pinned it for later, and continued to seat herself.

Smiling brightly Megumi strides into the hall and hands of her fur-lined cloak and gloves to a servant. She is dressed in a fine purple and pink kimono of which the neckline is daringly low.

As she makes her way in she notices Dotai and stops, lips quirking in amusement.

"Why Gyushi san, that must be so very cold! However shall you get warm again?"
