The first day of Tribunal, a number of events are taking place, planned by prominent magi who really want to see a Tribunal meet quorum for once.
There is a Verditius regional contest, organized by Rhodri's pater, Cuprincus. Only Verditii may compete, but all may attend.
Scintilla has organized two melees: a "jyoniur leval braul" using all forceless casting and a "three hits, you're out" system, and "advansed free fer all" requiring that all participants issue mutual declarations of Wizard's War ("jest inn caes," her letter claims). All are welcome to both, but her letter indicates that she expects only Flambeau and Tremere, "an mebbe that tytalis will sho up two."
Pardus has organized some big Bjornaer-only party, which seems to be an all-day barbecue of some sort.
Stephen Eruditus has organized a dinner party, which will be mostly Jerbiton, but all Gently Gifted magi are welcome.
