On January 24th a party of special magnificance was held at the kinship hall in honor of the birthday of Athelian. Also honored was Athelian's nephew, Aungnist, son of Evanya, who shares the same birthday. Despite the fact that he is but a young lad, he was given large amounts of ale and pipeweed to consume, much to the horror of Evanya.
Birthday wishes were also directed at Nogg, who's birthday is the very next day, even though Nogg spent most of the time drunk, sitting in the reflecting pool.
The party attendees spent a good amount of time beating and slashing at an apparent effigy of Boffo, trying to see if he was in fact alive. We gave up in exhaustion when the effigy continued to stand there unresponsive and unscathed.
