So with his head held high and his self consciousness shoved in the closet for the moment he turned to the door, opened it, and walked out. Hardest thing ever.
Now standing before a room of early party guests that smelt like the ocean and the better smelling half of the ocean's population Zuo cleared his throat and addressed everyone in the room. "Thank you all for coming here today to join in our celebration. I must also thank the town government for allowing Lamia Scale to host Hargeon's prestigious Bounty of the Deep Festival." Zuo smiled to himself, for anyone who knew anything about Hargeon knew at least 90% of the town government was in Zuo's pocket. It wasn't corruption.... it was.... something that looked like government corruption(minus the oppression) but was okay because a good guy was doing it. The old geezer built and owned the town okay, just don't push deeper in the topic. Anyway... the
The Bounty of the Deep Festival was your typical port town thanks giving celebration. Within the guild hall was a fancy ball where high end artisans sold expensive pieces of ocean themed art and some of the finest chefs across Fiore offered their services. Outside was a less formal festival where cheaper vendors sold their goods and specialty treats. Small children ran about playing with age appropriate fire works and performers fought for the attention of the crowds. Innocent enough fun and merriment.
The Grand Ceremony mentioned by Zuo Cii was just the opening of a sea shrine for offerings along with a short speech by local spiritual leader. Nothing really that grand but Zuo wasn't naming these things so whatever. NOTHING big at all could ever come out of it.
So have fun kiddies.
