Hotel Info All the rooms at Valley River Inn
have now been reserved!
A block of rooms for Royals, their retinue, and vigils has been
held aside, including all of the suites. Heads of retinue and
people interested in holding a vigil/reception should contact
Mistress Yseult (pam at bobwhitman dot com).
For everyone else, there are two options. Valley River Inn is
keeping a waiting list in case there are cancelations and rooms
become available. You can contact VRI and get on the list. And/or
you can reserve a room at one of the nearby hotels listed
conveniently on the 12th Night webpage. Please note that there is unlimited, free
street-level parking around Valley River Inn, so staying at a
separate location and driving to the site is convenient. We will
have a room where folks staying off site can leave cloaks, etc.
Roman Baths at 12th Night! The Baths of the
Two-Tailed Sea Lion will be open for attendance during the next
12th Night! Your event stewards are working feverishly on
decorations to transport Valley River Inn's spa back to a Roman
Bath complete with mosaics and murals and graffiti!
The Roman Bath Party will offer a hot soaking tub and the use of
saunas to relax and soothe you. Julia Sempronia has offered a class
on Roman Bathing Culture, and Ariadne will be teaching how to use
Strigulae. Sharon Rose will be taking appointments for massage
during the party and if you require, I'll be available to drape
togas or arrange hair. We'll be allowed to have food and drink, but
please leave your glass vessels in your rooms. We hope to have a
Roman Lunch Plate available for purchase from the Inn.
Friday Night Fun Our dance master, Good Old
Lord Petronius, has planned for those weary travelers joining us
Friday night to have, in his words, “a sedate and elegant
ball, with none of that flashy footwork and flourishes so
inconceivably loved by the youth.” The great hall will be in
process of being set up for the festivities of the next day, and
Petronius doesn’t want dancers getting underfoot.
However, rumors from Adiantum have started spreading.
Certain… ladies… of An Tir have declared that they
know exactly what weary travelers are looking for Friday
evening… FUN! To that end they’ve conspired against
dear old Petronius, and have plans to send him to bed early whether
he wills it or no, as they intend to take over the ball! Join the
courtesans of An Tir for a lively evening of getting underfoot.
They welcome all − those brave enough to be seen in the
company of courtesans and those who would hide their identity
behind a mask.
Along with the dancing, our lovely courtesans are hosting a
couple of competitions during their ball; one for the best
Documentably Trashy Garb, and one designed to be a social mixer
during the dancing.
For the costuming contest, bring out your best documentable
courtesan (or less noble working profession) clothing, and let our
judges know about what folks in the world’s oldest profession
were wearing during your period. Yes, documentation is required; it
doesn’t need to be a research paper, but consideration will
be given to depth of research.
Anyone that wishes to participate in the social competition will
be given a dance card at the beginning of the ball. Before each
dance there will be a moment to write in the name of your partner
for that dance. Whoever has the largest number of different
partners during the evening will win!
There will be space for the Aritsans of An Tir to display their
skills and prowess in the Arts & Sciences room. If you have
something you would like to display or demo, please fill out the
Labyrinth and stained glass windows at
12th Night 2011.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
