Crafter's Faire and Grand Opening of Celestial Spirits

Greetings, friends! I was honored with a pigeon from Ursula earlier today, as follows:

Hi all! Just a reminder for Sunday...

The Township of Heaven's Forge and Darkmor Tavern invite you to our first Crafter's Faire and Grand Opening of Celestial Spirits, the newest pub in the land.
Sunday, May 20th, 11am-1pm PST
Darkmor Tavern, Heaven's Forge
The tavern is located at 106o 47'N, 50o 16'E on the eastern edge of the valley south of Wrong Dungeon.
Bring your own resources.
There is a rune for Darkmor at the Brew.
I received this message while in Golden, but, alas, I have not the magical skills to bring me there in an instant. However, I ran to my boat and in a reasonable amount of time I was in the Heaven's Forge area.

I joined the start of the celebration at the Darkmor Tavern and Smithy. There were quite a few of Bajan notable figures there, including Ursula of the Golden Brew, UO Stratics reporter Cymidei Fier, even Azalin the Lich Lord!

I spent most of my time there sitting next to two fascinating gentleman, Sarbazian Krote and Rhyll, and orc. Sarbazian, thinking Rhyll an orc spy, was relentless in his investigation regarding the orc plans for the rumored upcoming orc-man war. Rhyll feigned ignorance clearly a posture befitting any good spy!

There was an enjoyable raffle that was held. For 200 gold one could buy a ticket book, each ticket seemed to win something wonderful! Tamlin, the keeper of the prizes, handed out prizes left and right, confirming "Everybody wins!" Although not normally a "gambling man," I was so intrigued that I bought a ticket book...and won several semi-rare items! All this while a man, named Abhor if I recall correctly, rode around on his llama, giving everyone free ale.

I wasn't able to stay for the latter half of the party, as it moved to another building, but I sketched the picture below to show everyone how very many people were there, having fun and being social. I even included my rare items in the picture! I shall have to make sure I return to the Darkmor Tavern and the town of Heaven's Forge very soon.
