    Tiko

    Tiko stands as the others do for the blessing. 'Tis a strange thing to ask spirits to bless food they had nothing to do with, she thinks while remaining respectful of others' customs. She sizes up Trevor, Anundr, and Dru as they exchange greetings. She smiles sweetly at Dru as he addresses her. "If we are to work together, I am sure we will get to know each other quite well."

    As she starts to slowly eat, she catches her eye and addresses Leeth in an attempt to draw her out, "While the men seem to prefer heavy blades, I see you agree with me that the rapier has some advantages."

    After a moment of careful consideration, Liath responds, "Yep. Precision strikes are my preference . . . brains over brawn."

    Anundr snorts in derision at Liath's comment. "I've seen toothpicks larger than your blade."

    Suzume then stands and nods to Janiven and bows his head hands clasped before him. "Oh divine host, we humbly beseech you to bless this food that it may nourish our bodies and bring us together in fellowship. We ask that you bless our hostess for preparing this food and for her bravery in bringing us together in this place to discuss the problems of our city. We ask that you bless us with equal measures of strength and wisdom that we might be a force for change and agents of good."
    After Suzume has concluded the blessing, Janiven will speak, "Thank you Suzume, that was lovely. Please all of you be seated. I know most of you have a lot of questions and I promise they will all be answered after dinner. I hope we can get to know each other and what we each stand for a little over this meal. I have always thought breaking bread together is one of the nicest bonding experiences, but then I do get a bit overly romantic at times. So...everyone...please partake."
    OOC:
    Everyone roll perception.


    OOC: If anyone still finds hey are mistrusting of Janiven, then please roll sense motive.

    Janiven

    Once most are finished with their salads, Janiven gathers up the empty plates and again heads toward the kitchen. She again returns, this time with 8 empty plates. She places one at each place setting. She again enters the kitchen to retrieve a pitcher of water which she places in the center of the table. Yet again she leaves to return with a large platter on top of which is a large dish filled with a roast, another large container filled with potatoes and finally a smaller one filled with gravy.

    She moves to the empty end of the table and uses it to help her balance the tray as she unloads the food.

    Once all the food is on the table she says, "Please help yourself." She moves the tray to the side wall and seats herself. She will wait until everyone has filled their plates before she partakes.

    OOC
    Those that rolled 10 and up notice Janiven has looked to the door and the clock several times so far this evening

    Liath smiles - just barely, a corner of her mouth quirking up - at the big man's comment but is not baited into a return sally. As Janiven bustles around and does her best to set everyone at ease, she sits quietly and keeps a keen eye on everyone in the room.
