Comments

Help put out a spread of food that Osis himself would be in awe of!

Meal time is planned for 8PM so folks arriving at Dagger Deep from a days work have a chance to join us.

Anyone is welcome to join the feast, but please remember that pot luck means that you must contribute something. It need not be anything enormous, so long as some contribution is made.

Tables will be set up near the market and don’t forget to bring your own plate/cup/ cutlery, etc.

An event for the feast has been created to help organize the meal.
