A homecoming feast for the Roman legionaries and Ysan marines requires elaborate preparations:

reserve a favorite, cheap and rowdy, tavern in the Fishtail district;
provide it with pigs to roast and a barrel of better wine;
engage musicians, jugglers, acrobats, dancers, prestidigitators, dancing animals and extra whores;
invite friends;
the weather being dry, hold the performances outside in Skippers' Market.

Adminius from Britannia says in Ysan that it is good to be home. Their centurion has become not only prefect but also King of Ys and their assignment has become permanent. In any case, Adminius will probably retire there. When abroad, I want to return home but perhaps Ys would be an exception.

Kaor, Paul!

While I agree Ys seems, in many ways, a VERY pleasant place to live in, those sinister "gods" of theirs would make me uneasy. I recall one of Gratillonius' Christian and Mithraio soldiers, whatever their other theological disagreements, agreeing on regarding the Three of Ys with distaste as demons.
