Pemberley Ball - 2 RSVP

Pemberley Ball
November 20-22, 2009
3-day party

event postings will be up each day
from 6pm - 8pm PST
(if possible, pop in for 5 minutes)

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Pemberley Ball. It will be a kind of role-playing interactive blog game. What is this you ask? Well, you'll have to join in to find out the details. But basically, I (or actually my Regency persona, Lady Vee) will be posting festivities for you to participate in every 15 minutes from 6pm to 8pm PST each day. As guests, you can react and comment to the posts. So be as creative as you like. Also, giveaway prize posts will appear throughout the party.

Please take the time to RSVP. Those who do will be eligible to win a copy of the Pride and Prejudice graphic novel.

Non-RSVP'd guests are welcome to join just comment below or crash the party.

I hope there is more of those lime tarts. Miss Charlotte has really outdone herself with these tasty treats.

Lady Vee proceeds around the buffet table to view the other pastries on display.

    And Velvet, Mr Darcy told me that something awaited you here (before you go, I'm warning you : it's not Mr Darcy in a wet and white shirt...! Sorry...!).

  13. I will be in attendance, but do have a pressing engagement on the evening of Saturday -- a murder mystery to solve. Thank you for sharing this event with us! ~~ Lady Anne Wray at Bedfordshire

  14. IO thought I had RSVP's but did not see my name on the guest list... "Horrors!" Imagine what The Darcy's would think!

    I am also looking for the place to pick my persona and may have my corset too tight as I am not seeing it.

    I will keep looking....

  15. Ok... if I was suppose to come up with a persona I would attend as Marianne Dashwood. I will be back with a post link later.

    I am currently having the Barouche detailed.... LOL

  16. Due to a strike I received the personal invitation to late to send you a RSVP, so now I'm crashing the party.
    Where's the cake?

    btw I'm incognito.

  17. Aha... time difference!
    A worldwide party within two evening hours?
    Pssst English time?!
    Darcy lives on my side of the globe, nanananana.
    ~~~~~we are dancing away to the next room~~~~~~>
    (both incognito)

  18. Alas, I forgot to do my positing before the event, of my RSVP I attended as Lady Elizabeth Richardson, the youngest daughter and child of Lord Daniel [the XX Earl of Escombe] and Lady Edythe Richardson's 3 children. I have an elder brother Lord Richard and his wife Lady Angelique who currently reside not far from their parents in Saxon Green. My elder sister is lately married last summer and she is currently in her last stage of confinement as they are awaiting the birth of their first child whom they hope will be a boy. I am here in hopes of attracting the attentions of a proper gentleman who will not be put off by my mere £ 100,000 dowry. While I know it is too late to post the invite on it I will post the dress and Darcy info on my blog.
