On the night of the full moon, the members of the caern of the Mother's Open Hands gather for their first (official) moot. ((OOC: Needless to say, all characters are welcome here!))
By consent, the proceedings are a hybrid of Garou, hengeyokai, and other Changing Breed customs. The speakers pass a decorated piece of wood, perhaps a foot long, back and forth among them as each person speaks.
Mends-the-Rifts makes a formal announcement that her daughter, Kielle, will begin her stay with the Menehune the following day, while one of the Menehune will take Kielle's place in her home; the arrangement will last until one year from tomorrow. Njall announces that the elders will take volunteers for guard duty once per moon, at moots; anyone wishing to volunteer should make it known during the open discussion to follow.
Shortly thereafter, Anippe asks, "Who wishes to take the Talking Stick?" of the gathered Fera in the clearing.
((OOC: In case it wasn't clear, the floor is now open. Characters must receive the Talking Stick before speaking, and must give it over to the next person to speak.))
