Most feasts require you to bring your own feasting gear. This is so autocrats don't have to arrange place settings for everyone but also so you can customise your table setting to your persona and create a medieval atmosphere.

You need at least one plate, bowl (or two different bowls), a knife, a fork (optional, but useful to modern people), a spoon or beter yet two, a tankard or goblet, a tea towel (to wash/wipe your dishes at the end), a serviette (especially if you eat with your hands), and a candle (because feasts are not lit with electric lights). It's good to have feasting gear that gives a medieval feel, i.e. using wooden bowls and plates because plastic isn't period.

If it's your first feast you are attending, you will be able to get a lend of feasting gear from the hospitaller. If you're wishing to purchase your own, just visit any op-shop and you will ALWAYS find cheap bowls and goblets for 20c - $3 a piece. If you're lucky, you may even find a two pronged fork!

This term is, in some kingdoms, shortened to Feast Gear.
