The Masked Ball venue (Mesmered), with its associated rooms (Masked Ball tab with sub-pages) are looking so

much better since the cleaners have been and tidied most of the damage from the lightning storm that scoured Veniche yesterday.  Portraits and paintings have been re-hung and the Direttore was able to smooth his moustache without his fingers shaking.  For myself, the presence of Ser de Fleury to pass me a wine and massage my aching neck is likely to return my fraught nerves to normal.  By late tonight, our guests will be able to re-commence the Scavenger Hunt and begin to decipher a code which will be offered to them for a superb prize.
