The King's fool is likely to pass scathing commentary on all those seated around him. His bawdy jokes, rhymes and other entertaining diversions are likely to send those with snooty dispositions into a towering rage. The Fool delights in being seated near smart company, preferably those who he can banter with at will. The Fool will use his bardic immunity to pass judgement on all those nearby, so best place him near those who can handle his barbed jokes.
Prince Briar annoys his father greatly, and must be seated at least half the table away from his father. Briar is sloppy, craven, and displays terrible table manners. Being the Prince, nobody but The Fool or the King sees fit to let him know of this. Briar would prefer to be seated next to attractive, loose women, although his family would disprove of such seating.
A noble from a small holding, Honest John is renown as one of the most decent men in the kingdom. Being loyal, kind, and courteous, John is likely to take offense being seated next to someone anyone rude, unscrupulous, or unkind.
Those seated next to Silk have a maddening tendency for their valuables to disappear. Silk is a master of wit and guile, wanted in no less than four different nations for crimes ranging from theft to sleeping with the King's wife. Silk should not be seated next to the fool under any circumstances, lest they be allowed to brew trouble, the likes of which might cause wars. Silk's business transactions must also be watched carefully, as he loves discussing them over dinner.
*Throws hands up in a fit of rage* I don't know why in bloody hell it refuses to accept the entire submission, but I'm sick of trying to get it to work. I'll come back to this and fix it another time.

Managed to fix it without any formatting. Sometimes I hate the html editor on this site Strolen.
Axel, I have a small request. Can you edit the formatting of the summary for this sub so it's not spaced so far at the top and bottom on the main page? It's nothing huge, it's just irking me in the same way that an image that stretches your screen horizontally does.
