"Meat n Greet" (1x36) is the 36th session of the first campaign of Itora.

The party attend a semi-formal breakfast meet and greet for the Grand Tournament's seeded competitors. The group scopes out the competition through social graces, making some friends along the way.


Before departing the arena after the Monster Mash, Friend and Friends are approached by an official from the Grand Tournament Committee, giving them a formal invitation to a meet and greet breakfast with their other rival competitors. The party wake up early the next morning to attend this semi-formal affair.

The Breakfast

Arriving fashionably on time, the party wait for the breakfast to formally begins. Once all teams are in attendance, an official calls the room to attention, announcing that the prize money has been increased substantially thanks to the generosity of an anonymous benefactor. The grand prize has been doubled from 10,000gp to 20,000gp, and a runner-up prize of 5,000gp has been added. During this announcement, Gael notices Peregrine looking at the ground with significantly less bravado than their previous encounter. The official formally dismisses the attendees to their individual tables to mingle and partake in food and drink to the degree of their choosing.

Pine notices Dharts performing card tricks to several people and is entranced by his magic show. After the crowd dissipates, Dharts heads to join the band playing for the room. Pine sits back and begins work on a new composition tentatively titled "Ode to the Loss of Magic Tricks".

Ricoril heads over to Nohbody after he noticed her playing with a rat. The two talk about the rat, who she introduces as Nyarla, and Ricoril asks to hold them. Dutifully, Nyarla scampers up onto his shoulder. Noting that Nohbody's team, Always Sunny, will be facing Seda Squad in their next matchup, he asks her to give Seda an extra punch for him. She agrees, and replies that she wouldn't be the only one. He walks away with Nyarla on his shoulder, but the rat leaps off and back into Nohbody's care.

Gael heads directly to meet with the group's first rival, the The Lunar Rose Guild. Tae greets them and introduces the rest of the group - Sister Blithe, Tanari, and Hondo, the last of whom was in the process of stuffing his face with bacon. They discuss matters of divinity, worship, and the nature of the respective parties' interest in entering this tournament. Hondo challenges Gael to an arm wrestle which, while not a complete blowout, is handily won by Hondo.

Versa sits back and watches the goings on, eventually joined by a roguish half-elf. Through the use of thieves cant, the two come to a common understanding of their shared history in piracy and other such roguish activities. He introduces himself as Kal, noting that Versa and her group impressed him. He hopes to be able to have a match against his group, Gloryseekers, but with the way the bracket shakes out, it's not likely. To help hedge that bet, however, he provides Versa with some intel on their next opponent, because it would be a shame if F&F were knocked out in the first round.

Encyea approaches Gael, congratulating them on their Monster Mash performance and high seed. Encyea offers a gift to Gael, wrapped in a small cloth bundle, but tells them not to open it here. In turn, Gael adds Encyea to their Ring of Masks, providing them with their companion mask. Later, Gael finds the bundle to be a set of five arrows enchanted with lightning magic.

Versa sidled up to House Woodmere's table after noticing that the other rivals have been keeping a wide berth. Noting that their Noble House is known for their philanthropy, she asked whether they would be open to donating to her orphanage project. Peregrine seems disinterested in the conversation, dismissing it because his group are primarily fighters and don't deal directly with funds. One of his elven group members, however, attempts to be more helpful. She offers to find the necessary paperwork and, assuming Versa returns it to her before the end of the tournament, promises to make sure it finds its way to the right people. She makes no guarantees of success, but at least provides the best chance for success; Versa agrees to this arrangement.

Preparing for Combat

Engaging in pre-match activities. Versa successfully Sabotages their rivals, allowing for a weakness to Piercing damage. Ricoril leads a Hype Squad to drum up crowd support for the team, earning the maximum bonus. Gael and Pine gather intel about their rivals, aided by the information Kal gave to Versa earlier.

Flipping a coin, Friend and Friends chooses their starting quadrant first, selecting the northeast corner; the Lunar Rose Guild chooses the northwest. The two teams take their places and await the start of combat.
