And thus the tumultuous autumn season comes to a close, and the guests depart, eager to return to their homes before winter sets in.
Still, the weather is fine, if a bit chill, though talk amongst the covenfolk heard towards the end of fall indicate that winter is a season of storms, though very little of it is wintry.
As each of you exit your labs to get some breakfast, you almost trip over a small basket placed in front of it. Within the basket is a tube, which contains a parchment scroll. The writing thereon is impeccable, clean, and almost a thing of beauty. It reads, in latin:
"You are cordially invited to a feast for the occasion of the winter solstice and Christmas, to be held on the Winter Solstice, in Dierdre's lodgings. Dress is as formal as you can manage. Likewise, there will be a similar celebration for custos and consorti in the feast hall. Festivities will conclude with the casting of the Aegis."
"Mab, filia Bebh, ex Merinita
Dierdre ex Flambeau."
