The Solstice and Equinox Parties marks the turn of the season in Baltimore. At the Solstices, the changeling court (Spring or Autumn) yields to the fae court (Summer or Winter), whilst at the Equinox parties the reverse holds. At this party, Summer, represented by Orin, was yielding to Autumn, represented by Arthur Covington. Everyone in Baltimore’s supernatural community was there. The party is considered Neutral Ground.
Orin, presiding over the pre-midnight party, was his usual friendly self.
Ezra gave out his gifts, notably
To Orin, a stein that transformed any liquid into a fine German Beer
To Riza, a proton pack, suitable for use as a focus item
To Arthur, a shooting script for Dawn of the Dead, one that saw use during filming
At midnight, Orin gave a short speech, and turned the occasion over to Arthur, letting him know subtly that being given this honour position by his compatriots was more a matter of being thrown into the line of fire than anything else.
Orin was later seen spiking (some of) the party punch, which Keiko convinced Riza and Ezra to drink.
Riza took the Moderate social consequence Got Wasted in Supernatural Public
Ezra took the Moderate social consequence The Spiders!
