Hear ye! At Crystal Ball XXXIV, we are proud to have not one, but TWO vigils/elevations!
When it has been announced that a person will be made a peer of the realm for their service, artistry or martial skill, a vigil is a very special event typically hosted by their friends or household. Those who are invited to visit the soon-to-be-elevated peer may come bearing gifts, sage advice, unique insights or shared pasts. They might come hoping to mend bridges, get the last word in a running debate, to laugh, to cry or to share some emotion in-between. All of this plays a part in making this a special evening that the candidate will long remember.
