[Fifteen strangers were brought into the Depths to end the world, and they survived, with extra strangers along for the ride. Though the old world ended, creation itself has been preserved, and a new world has been born, shaped by the survivors. Portals to new worlds have been opened, and memories are slowly, but surely, returning.
And what better way is there to celebrate the beginning of a world, but with a spaghetti dinner?
Well, there was plenty of spaghetti, but some people thought that maybe there should be more than spaghetti. The Dragonborn did their best to make non-spaghetti food based on their memories of Tamrielic cuisine - being a cook themselves and cooking their own meals, even as an Emperor.
Spiced coffee with moon sugar and sweetmeat pasties in the shape of the moons, from Elweyr.
Imperial-style spiced sausage, braised in wine, and a tomato-flavored rye bread.
From Iliac Bay, a paprika-spiced rice dish with chicken and roasted peppers and a spiced banana mash in the style of Hammerfell.
From the Alik'r Deserts of Hammerfell, scorpion braised with venom sauce - which Alexis seems to like. It doesn't seem to be poisoned.
From Daggerfall, beet hummus, and stuffed dormice wrapped in bread like sandwiches.
From High Rock, Potage le Magnifique, with Alexis' special, not-lethal secret ingredient, and rock trout, along with fruit dumplings.
Lamb's bone broth with potato dumplings and vegetables, just like in the strongholds of the Orcs - with a dash of rice - and a dessert of carmelized beetroot.
Saltrice flatbreads and Telvanni-style mushroom medley with frost salts, from Morrowind.
Black Marsh King Yellow slug, served raw with some seasoning and wrapped in nut leaf. They are delicious, really.
Of course there is Skyrim's honey mead and blue cheese with honeyed oatcakes, along with horker and ash yam stew from Solstheim.
For now, it's time to relax, and celebrate the end - and beginning. Work can be done tomorrow. Questions can be answered later, if any are left. For now, eat, and enjoy. Bring your friends from home. Be happy, and remember.
There were 15 strangers.
But they are not strangers anymore.]
((OOC: Congratulations on ending Round 1 with the Golden End! For this feast, characters may bring people from their own canons to mingle with other players! Assume that portals have been opened for everyone by this time to go back and forth from their home worlds.
While you're here, please feel free to hit up the HMD, and we'll see you all when Round 2 happens!))
