BALL!

Post by TwiBel » Sun Mar 26, 2023 4:18 am

Thank you so much to Keira and Katster for hosting.

Thank you to the DMs who brought a parade of NPCs and special effects around.

Thank you to everybody who dressed their character up and played make believe.

Thank you to folks who brought more than one character to make things feel extra full.

And thank you especially, giant shout out, to scalyz/Kurn for the bardic performance that was incredibly detailed about the music and one of the best RP helpers I've ever seen anybody do. It really set the mood beautifully, and put emotion under everything it touched. You're a fucking star, man.

That was so much goddamn fun!

BALL! :D

Lots of fun, and bits of whispered intrigue. M'Chek!

Thanks to everyone who made it happen!

This so much. I'm going to have to copy those lyrics from my log.

The space was amazing and I loved seeing the variety of outfits people came up with.

Thanks especially to all the players and DM's for the RP :sauf:

This was a refreshing change of pace.

A big thanks to Keira's player, the players that attended, and all the DM's that made it possible last-night.

Everyone in attendance was absolutely wonderful! Even the gossiping was friendly (that I could hear).
It was a much needed night of just good times for me. Thank you all so much!

And big thank you for Pleth who really rocked it out of the park for the decorations and NPCs and all of it! <3

Very awesome event. Can only pile on with the praise for Keira for organizing things, and all the DM loving that was happening. And the dancing RP was fantastic! Especially the Tango and the Jaa Jaa Jaa!. Plus a very surprising late night dance between a certain couple. Never bet against Nostalgia.

YES! Everything was wonderful! Awed kudos to DMs and players alike! Lexy was so busy dancing he missed all the politics (I look forward to reading the log to see all the great stuff I missed, too)! And my apologies to anyone Lexy didn't give attention to; crowds are super challenging for me, but I appreciated everyone!

And then there's this: The subtle, sustained, coordinated effort to get Sceluscio to join Alexis on that dance floor was something to witness. I certainly noticed it in the moment, particularly Kurn's part, but it wasn't until after I re-read that bit of the log this morning that I noticed how pretty much everyone present was in on it and rooting for them. That was a moment 15 (RL) years in the making; THANK YOU!!!

Well done to all! Many, many hours of sustained chatting, dancing, celebrity cameo appearances, and complete fun. I'm sorry Kaelyn had to leave a bit early, but it really was just an incredible time. Huge thanks to Pleth for designing the area and all the NPCs and fireworks-- wow, just all of it! I loved how close everyone was-- no whisper circles allowed, everyone within earshot. What a perfect vibe!

I also wanted to give a special shout out to Katster, of course. Her dogged persistence to help others have fun is the only reason I'm playing this game right now after such a long break, and this same love of the setting and the players was on full display last night. You're a gem, Katster, and you genuinely bring the world together in a way that no one else does. Thank you!
