     Elayne FitzJames has come in from the frosty evening air, and 
     shares a delightful tale with the assembled company:
Greetings to the patrons of the Merry Rose and Countess Ianthe:
I would like to join your fireside circle, having lurked outside for quite 
some time. I am new to Atlantia, but I recently heard a tale that I thought 
might be appropriate and enjoyable to all. Please forgive my awkward 
telling of this eastern fable....
     <story snipped to save space>
     Not awkward in the least.  Simple renditions oft fit tales of simple 
     wisdom the best.  Whence came this story?  From some Eastern hoard of 
     knowledge?  Is it a tale of the Nasrudin?   
Perhaps I could have some of this fine ale I hear so much about?
     Please be welcome!  INNKEEP!  Please pull up another chair before the 
     fire, and bring this lady refreshment and warm food.  And a lap rug.  
     It's cold out and she's fair frozen.  (Shame on us all not to notice 
     your need before you spoke.)
      -Ianthe                                    kim.salazar@em.doe.gov
