Soiree at the Summer Palace

Post by Grand Duke Henry on Mon May 26, 2008 9:17 pm

In honour of the liberation of Berrington that will be complete by Friday, Grand Duke Henry and Grand Duchess Sophie Clementine of Ravenburg-Morovia are hosting a soiree at their Summer Palace in the idyllic Ravenburger countryside near the sea on Saturday. Among the guests will be novelist Sir Henry MJ Tonks and wife Marissa Sedgeley, Lady Crawford; Count Berchtold and his family; Dieter and Nathalie Hochkatzenburg and the entire political class of Ravenburg-Morovia.

Invitations are also extended to the Duetarian heads of state and heads of government - it is expected that speeches will be given by many and varied personages of dignity, and a talk on The Future of Duetaria is being prepared by guest of honour Sir Jack Nicholson, formerly lord president in Luschia.

An eight course tasting lucnh will be served, with canapes and snacks available throughout the day, and at 18:30 there will be a viewing of Princess Elaina Maria's private art collection. It is estimated that upwards of seven hundred guests will be in attendance, and the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess eagerly await the presence of their fellow rulers.

Warm Welcome

Post by Grand Duke Henry on Tue May 27, 2008 10:43 pm

The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Ravenburg-Morovia are delighted that their tenacious rival Secretary-General Cliff, the "attack dog of liberal constitutionalism", still wishes to attend their humble gathering. A Warm Welcome will be extended to him!

Dearest Grand Duke Henry,
In recognition of your apology to His Boronic Majesty, and the new relations between Ravenburg-Morovia and Greenoland and Nagadoches, His Boronic Majesty gladly accepts your invitation, at the cost of cancelling the folk festivals he would attend with his the Boronic First Lady. The only thing that Captain Boron, would request s assurances that his assured enemies Tom "the spud" Hookee and other members of the clan won't be there.

His Boronic Majesty thanks you accordingly.

The Right Honourable, H.B.M Captain Boron
and the council of the Super Elecrons.

P.S would a super-califrigalistic-conductor X be an acceptable gift.

Dear Captain,

Naturally, in light of the Greeno-Ravenburger and Nagadocho-Ravenburger friendships so recently cemented by apologies on both sides, we would be very happy to receive you and any guests that you and your First Lady wish to bring to our soiree. It is also a great pleasure of mine to announce that Tom Hookee was last seen in the company of Luschian Opposition Shadow PM Marchmain, who will probably not be attending.

Naturally, the renowned Super-Califrigalistic-Conductor X would be a much-treasured gift. Might we respond with a rare Vanadium Accelerator of Mendeelivium Particles?

We look forward to seeing you, dear sir,

Your friend,

Grand Duke Henry

Attendees New

Post by Grand Duke Henry on Fri May 30, 2008 2:58 am

Count Prittwitz-Berchtold opens a gold-embossed letter with his Sword of Damocles opener, casually sipping a chilled Jack Daniels. In the neighbouring room to his luxurious wood-pannelled study, Countess Carisa and the three Berchtold children; Maria Charlotte, Rupert and Frederick Corsinus are watching a DVD of The Awful Truth as recommended by 'Aunt' Gwynnie Paltrow. Prittwitz-Berchtold reads the below letter:

TO: THE OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF STATE, RAVENBURG-MOROVIA
FROM: THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL, UPPER MOROVIA-CARINTHIA

Dear Otto,

The Government of Upper Morovia-Carinthia will naturally be attending the soiree; I am bringing my trademark caramel truffles, and all of the cabinet look forward eagerly to the event. The soiree promises to be spectacular, as does the guest list!

Claudia will, apparently, be showing off her latest purchases from the private Harrod's installed in the Hofstein (the executive budget is already running up $43,000 in clothes, I am told!), and Matthias asks specially that you seat him next to King Wake (his childhood hero, bless the political animal) and Amy Adams (allegedly, his biggest 'fan' - I have my suspicions). Congratulations, of course, to the Grand Duchess for pulling this magnificent party off - a miracle worker of networking, I believe!

Yours faithfully and in cordial acquaintance,

Richard G. F. Vogt
President of the Executive Council, Upper Morovia-Carinthia

Soiree Success!

Post by Grand Duke Henry on Mon Jun 02, 2008 4:14 pm

The Sunday Soiree at the Summer Palace was a massive success, with nearly four thousand guests in attendance. Sumptuous foods and sophisticated conversations were in a delightful cornucopia as President Richard Berry and Vice President Edwina Siddons of Berrington were welcomed back into duetaria with open arms by statesmen and literati alike. Grand Nomad Lloyd and Secretary-General Cliff heatedly debated their candidacies for World Assembly Delegate whilst seated at the High Table, and a magnificent dance was held in the Grand Ballroom, irradiated by sunlight and glistering golden chandeliers, which was won narrowly by Grand Duke Henry and Grand Duchess Sophie Clementine, with King Clarkeos and Queen Olivina a close second.

Predictably the party spilled over into the luxurious seaside villa, the sprawling gardens and the ornate swimming pool, with guests relaxing in the idyllic grounds. A game of charades on grand scale finished off the evening, with Countess Carisa von Prittwitz-Berchtold and Lord Alejandro Lecanda of Moreno deserved winners. Many thanks must naturally be extended also to the transcendental guest speakers, Sir Jack Nicholson and Sir Henry MJ Tonks, whose enlightened lectures (The Future of Duetaria and Empire of Shadows: The Cinema of John Huston, respectively) will be a source of much debate and dicsussion for years to come.
