Mine Hall / Re: Drink and Be Merry [ 02.07.2591; 8 PM ] || Event

Through his work and the connections of the Brewer Hall, Cetorex knew a fairly large amount of people in the Crafter and Holder lifestyle, but he couldn’t know everyone. So though he didn’t recognize the man that had approached him, he still smiled broadly and clasped his hand strongly to shake it. Everyone was there for a good time, after all. There was no reason to be impolite or brusque on such an occasion—and Cet usually wasn’t anyway.

He did briefly look the man up and down following his comments, though. The man spoke like a Peacekeeper, but he wasn’t dressed in their usual wherhide uniforms. Judging by the well-behaved nature of his whers that seemed to have taken up stations by the entrance, that was what Cet guessed his profession must be. But even with all his pleasantness, he was still a little wary.

“Well met,” he echoed, smile still in place. “I’m Cetorex. I’m afraid we haven’t met. Are you a Keeper?” An invitation for the man to supply his name, as well as answer the Brewer’s inquiry. He had no intention of allowing his Hall to end up embroiled in any kind of underhanded dealings that might see fit to try to rear their heads at the Mine Hall as they had done at Fort during the Pass—up to and including any form of protection racket, when there were perfectly respectable Peacekeepers to do that job.

If the man was what he seemed to be, then all was well. But Cet had not grown up in Fort and lived to his current age by being a fool.

There was still a bit of summer left lingering over the island, which made Cet all the more thankful for just how cool the interior of the Mine Hall was. Deep enough in the stone that the absorbed heat of the day didn’t penetrate, it was a welcome relief from the more open and sweltering atmosphere of the Weyr. With only one opening to the outside world, this space was much easier to keep cool than the former.

But that was hardly the only reason he was appreciative of the Mine Hall. Despite its dangers, it felt more like home—a more familiar sort of place in comparison to the one where he and his family had been living for the last four turns. While Cetorex didn’t dislike riders per se, it was far more comfortable to be surrounded by like-minded people, away from situations that made tempers flare and relationships strained. Not to mention there was a fair bit of pride in the fact that Holders and Crafters could rebuild too, even without the express and constant help of dragon riders.

When other Brewers and Vinters had first started to toss around the idea of formally moving to the Hall, Cetorex had been all for it. The move would save him the daily trips to and from, which would mean more time around his family too. And it felt right in a way, since it meant less non-Crafter oversight to their activities. And that was saying nothing of the fertile land that had been cleared outside the Hall, some of which they would be allowed to claim for their own crops.

It would be good to really grow things again, rather than having to jockey for space with the Farmers and Herders. Not that Cetorex had ever held them any ill will.

Having an official event to celebrate was even more exciting, though. Their cavern had been cleaned and prepped for the guests that were already flooding in, everything as gleaming and polished as his Craft could get it. They might not have a large store of alcohol—yet—but they would be generous with what they did have. An excuse to mingle with other respectable Holders in a social capacity would be welcome too.

They so infrequently had things to celebrate. Cetorex appreciated it even more when the opportunity did arise.

Spoiler for OOC:
Who doesn’t like a good party? Especially when it means alcohol is going to be available in more abundance in the future? :3 Just bear in mind this is meant to be a classy affair, so anyone who crashes it or causes a ruckus will get kicked out. As always, you can check into the OOC event thread here.

Also, SanctifiedSavage was awesome and updated the map of Mine Hall to include the Brewers' new area. :3

10. Brewer Cavern
     This cavern has been recently carved out for the Brewers to set up their own, small Craft Hall. The brewers decided to set up in the Mine Hall to be closer to the jungle, despite how dangerous it is, and so they might start growing their own small crops outside the giant metal doors of the Mine Hall.
