In the first moments of Sunday the first of February Va’lis Razele and Melina Gerson were joined together in holy matrimony. This was the initial wedding to take place under the new EM wedding system, and there was high interest in the Ceremony. The location chosen for the nuptials by the happy couple was Terort Skitas (translates as Tower of Knowledge) a temple built into the side of a mountain. When Montor fell, this is where most of the scholars went to rebuild. Most of the information about Ilshenar was obtained from the scrolls and books inside of the walls of the temple. What was once a refuge for the greatest minds in Ilshenar, is now nothing more than an empty monument to the people that past. Terort Skitas can be found in Ilshenar south east of the Valor Gate. You have to cross the Pormir Felwis river and follow it south till you find the mountain that Terort Skitas is built into. There are two methods of reaching Terort Skitas one is to travel through two levels of the Sorcerers Dungeon, and the other is to teleport up from beside the waterfall to a small grassy ledge at the lowest levels of the temple. The wedding party and guest gathered at the Valor Shrine gate in Ilshenar and waited to be led to Terort Skitas. When the appointed time arrived the wedding group moved out and headed to the location. When reaching the mountain rather than risk lives EM Annendora helped those who did not have the ability to teleport up get to the wedding site. The temple set a peaceful and serene tone for the lovely wedding as the gathered people listened to EM Annendora joined the joyous couple as one. The bride and groom, dressed in very becoming outfits, looked very much in love as Annendora led them through their vows. Once the rings were placed on each other’s fingers and the mandatory kiss took place the gathered witnesses broke out into applause as Annendora introduced the newlywed couple to the world. The wedding was followed by a reception on the floor above where the wedding took place. Many of the gathered people also signed in to an guestbook that they did not realize was there prior to the wedding. The bride and groom got many well wishes for the future and praised on the beauty of their ceremony and choice of location. Even on this joyous day there was a small bit of sad news for the shard. EM Annedora has been asked to leave us here on Catskills. Though it is good news for her because she will be moving on to Lake Austin to take the position as their new EM. They will gain a wonderful EM because even though her time here was limited many people enjoyed their time with her and she will be missed. Her position as our floater will be taken by EM Cernunnos, so if you see him please welcome to our shard.
