The Envious Platter

The merchant-priest Nabusalim grew famous for holding lavish feasts with the same foods the God-King dined on.  It is was whispered that he had a large, silver platter with a cover.  And if he whispered a name over the platter, it made food appear, whatever the named person was eating.  Nabusalim's feasts ended the same summer the God-King was poisoned.


  1. Your stuff has been gold lately. Just fantastic.

  2. Indeed it has. Although toady's is more properly called silver. :)

  3. I'm with Commissioner and McGee, great stuff, and very poetic.
