Twelfth Night in Samarkhand:
Even now, messengers are winging their way the Great Khan's Hall, telling himj of the splendidly arrayed caravans nearing the end of the perilous journey across Caid to Samarkhand. In anticipation of this day, the Khan has called together the greatest artisans, entertiner4sw, and cooks within his vast realm to prepare all manner of divertissements for your enjoyment.

Revel: The Revel will include dancing; theatrical, musical, and prestidigitational performances; a special auction by the Tavern Guild; and the Traditional Costume Contest; The revel fee is $3.00 if you are not attending the banquet. If you desire something a bit quieter, Scheherazade's Cavern will be open in the evening for you to display your bardic skills. The Khan's Bard Extraordinaire, Sir Charles of Dublin and members of the Bardic Consortium, will be on hand to share their vast repository of music, song, and poetry with all and sundry.
