  • memories from individual people, can also be formal event reports.

From Baron Malcolm:
We of House Montrose were tired of hearing that banquets always lost money and that servers usually went hungry. We decided to prove that not only could the help enjoy the full meal but the event could make money. The site had room off the kitchen that we used as the servers dining room witch we decorated in the same manor as the main hall so that the servers could sit down and eat the between duties. After careful planning and a diverse menu we managed to feed people to near bursting and still had a $200 profit.
