✧ Although a servant, the usher is a high ranking one, and may talk to any lady if said lady is left alone and without a partner for dance

RSVP's are open. I understand that people are away over the holidays, and that's fine- hopefully we can still get people to attend!

Really want to come! Hope a character of mine is invited!
Sorry if that was unclear- I'll add it to the thread, but the general idea is that all (or most) of the nobles from the Northern Kingdom are invited. RSVP's are to tell us OOCly that you can come along. Is your character a recognised noble? If they are and you can make it OOCly, just RSVP and you can go. If not, maybe someone will take you as their +1!

Either Ash or I will post a notice in the Crossroads for this event soon. Not to invite nobles, but to ask other characters for help. We need chefs, ushers, guards, muscians, and anything that you can think of to help the Ball run smoothly. Even if you don't have a noble character, you can still join us c:

Musician? That sounds interesting! I have a Caparii Character that could sing at the event if no one would mind! That may give her a chance to meet some people. Some just needs to tell me how to make music notes appear on screen! :p
