The Realms / Feast of Creathorne by Sayeh and Sir Shean
For many years the Feast of Creathorne has been a consistent winter gathering of the Realms' Winter Season. The Feast, as its name suggests, is hosted by the Nation of Creathorne of which the Guild Master of the Realms Embassy, Sir Shean, is a lord of. Dignitaries from all over the Realms, warriors and those who just like food were in attendance. Various lords of Blackwood were also present at the feast where the East Blackwood Embassy’s Realms Liason, Sayeh of Sapphire Isle, spoke about trade deals in Mythodea. - The Ambassador
Baroness Sayeh requested the attention of his Royal Highness, Crown Prince Saegen and some of the Lords of Blackwood. They were made aware of a trade deal to be made with the leader of the M. Hansa and the ambassador, Dagger, that if the companies both joined that this could mean the expansion of the kingdom's operations and a working network of trade. Sayeh asked if the Lords of Blackwood were interested in investing into this endeavor of trade to supply the embassy if it also meant in time that the Lords would also turn about a profit for their goods in time. The offer was met with equal interest, and further arrangements will be made before the Tournaments of Creathorne at the start of the summer before the Baroness is to set sail for her journey back to Mythodea. - Sayeh
