At 8pm on the night of festivities, the Gently-Gifted magi are all invited to congregate at a dinner party.
Stephen Eruditus of Libellas is hosting; in attendance are the entire membership of Schola Pythagoranis (Astrolabe, Edward of Milton, and Lydia of Jerbiton; Fredegisa of Guernics, Uncia of Bjornaer, and Niamh Ex Miscellanea), Iulia Jerbitonis of Voluntas, Vanasalas Criamonis of Semitae, Mercurio Tremeris of Blackthorn, and the Tribunal's only active Quaesitor, Trutina of Guernicus.
At the party's official start time, folks are milling about in that careful, studied nonchalance. (There's a LOT of Etiquette in this room, on which many participants will be judging each other.) Serving maids are bustling about, setting the table; as there are no placecards, seating will be a careful affair.
Who wishes to sit near whom?
