1. Recent Releases:

ADVICE FROM THE GODDESS OF LOVE!
Dating woes have you in a tailspin? Can't decide what to wear? No question is too frivolous for that goddess of frivolity, Aphrodite! If you have a question about your love life and how to improve it, simply write moc.scinortumis|etidorhpa#moc.scinortumis|etidorhpa. Insightful and charming, Aphrodite's advice is always straightforward, always from the heart. A selection of letters (attributed anonymously, of course!) will appear on Her Worship's own Simutronics web page soon!

PLAY EUREKA!
Feeling lucky? Gather your friends and your dinars and head to the Eureka Gaming Hall in Northwest Athens to try your hand at Greece’s newest game. It’s Bingo with a Greek twist – and it’s available day and night in parlors not far from the west gate. If the deities are on your side, you could win up to 50 dinars for a jackpot game! It only costs 20 dinars for a marker and board, and they’re both yours to keep for next time!


2. In-Game Events:

NEW PLAYER NIGHTS
The Mentor Society invites all newcomers to participate in the next New Player Night, Saturday May 1st. Beginning at 8 PM EST, mentors and hosts will be on hand to give you tours of the land and answer your questions. This is a great opportunity to meet with fellow adventurers and learn valuable tips and tricks. To participate, simply login to play and mentors will meet you. If you have any difficulty joining the tour, type ASSIST and a host will be happy to help you. We hope to see you there!

FESTIVAL OF THE GODS!
After several months of planning, we celebrated our first anniversary this past weekend with a festival honoring the gods and goddesses of Greece. Guests were treated to games, prizes, merchants, and much more. Plans are already underway for our next big bash, so keep an eye on in-game NEWS for details!


3. Contests:

WIN AN AUTHENTIC CREW VEST FROM THE TV SHOW!
We've got a special something to give away this spring, and a new exotic location to explore in search of this treasure. Be a part of the unfolding on-line story that could wrap up with you winning a prize that crosses time, transcends boundaries, and puts an authentic crew vest from Renaissance Pictures into your wardrobe! Keep an eye on in-game NEWS for details!


4. The Grapevine:

Rumor has it that the last "Hercules: Legendary Journeys" episode of the season will feature a character with a name very familiar to many of you! Watch for the "Revelations" episode during the week of May 17-22, and see if you can spot a character named after our very own Vaftel! We hear he holds a rather noble position, and there will be some big surprises! We have more contests coming up, so watch the in-game NEWS for your chance to win!

Spring is here, and love is in the air! A couple of players met in H&X, fell in love, and now are getting married in real life! Please join us in congratulating Diona and Invictus - proof positive that love does indeed bloom in most unusual places! The wedding is scheduled for July 1999, and we're told Invictus already has a wedding band with a greek "key" design. Congratulations, you two!
