Back when I live in AEthelmearc, and AEthelmearc lived in the
East, a Juggler King named Sebastion ruled the land.  I have seen
this Sebastion (now entitled Count or Earl or some such) walking
about Pennsic on stilts.  In fact, he has to walk on stilts because
of the length of white belt he wears.

So, you only need to locate him and one other grallator at Pennsic
and you will have met your quorum.
