Achillea was a planet that was located within the Cadriaan Province of the Tapani sector. It was a tradeworld on the Shapani Bypass hyperspace route and was one of House Cadriaan’s primary worlds.
The planet boasted shallow, warm seas and three large land masses; Achillea’s urban centers were located on the northernmost continent. The capital city, Cadriell, was situated on a peninsula on the west coast, where it was surrounded by spectacular cliffs that overlooked the ocean.
Achillea’s small southern continent hosted huge spacia tree plantations which were farmed for spacia wood that was made into furniture. Manufactured on Achillea, such furniture was in great demand throughout the galaxy.
While Achillea is a prime world of House Cadriaan, it is Baron Quinn Sheffield of House Reena that manages to extend the first formal invitation to the House Sterling nobles during their visit. Sheffield has prepared a feast honoring the recent accomplishments of Alderaan, although he is careful to not mention the taking of Coruscant specifically.
The evening begins with soft music and light refreshments so people can mill about and catch up on news. A Bith band called Mesmer’s Nebula plays soft dinner music from Empress Teta. The servers are all Twi’Lek women in Barnaban Felt dresses.
The Menu includes: Mon Calamarian seafood finger foods, Stuffed Plavonian starfish, Raw Rockfish twists, Grilled sea cucumbers in a blanket, Algae-bread, Duros Ale, Coruscant blush wine, Bothan brandy, Mistwater imported from Barnaba.
In attendance are Baron Quinn Sheffield of House Reena, Baron Munsk of House Barnaba, Sir Ajax Wennel a Knight of House Cadriaan, Sir Trevas Jotane a Knight of House Calipsa, Baroness Mellona Gantrolo of House Palagia, Baron Lucian Hejaran of House Mecetti. In addition there are a number of retainers and royal servants.
The social hour ends with the serving of the soup, specifically Ukian Torbull tail soap, Neonan red cheese, and Ryloth mushroom bread.
During the soup light conversation continues and the guests will be expected to share news of the core with the larger group. Baron Sheffield will discuss the Vor-Cal hunt which is coming up in the next month or so where nobles are taken to an undeveloped world to do a hunt for a creature which isn’t revealed until they get there.
A salad follows the soup made of fresh greens from Barnaba with Coruscant red wine Vinaigrette.
While most of the nobles are closed mouth about their feelings in the larger political scheme of things Sir Jotane and Sir Wennel are clear that they have srtong anti-Imperial sentiments.
The Main Course consists of Roasted Rodian Karstag with algae-bread stuffing, baked Corellian potatoes, and steamed Verdian vine beans.
Baroness Gantrolo will mention that Pelagia was once very strongly allied with the old republic when they had a considerable force of Jedi although Baron Hejaran will scoff at this and suggest the entire galaxy is safer without the Jedi and their constant string of dark jedi warlords.
Dessert will eventually be brought out with Barnaban Mist-pudding, Herglic algae ice cream, and Corellian air cake
After the dessert there will be an opportunity to talk individually more for those who want to socialize before calling it an evening.
