Our barony's policy, brought on by too many feasts with uncertain numbers,
is that a feast spot is a feast spot - if you sit in an "onboard" chair, you
pay the full onboard price - kid or no. Because no matter who is eating the
meal, it is never served with 'kid sized portions' factored into the

side-by-side chairs) so the kids can share a portion are welcome to do so,
or even to have a kid on their laps sharing the parent's meal (which happens
