1. Upcoming & Recent Events:

Hercules and Xena recently celebrated its second anniversary with several strange occurrences that marked April Fool's Day as truly extraordinary. What started out normally with the animals of the wilds trying to enter the city soon spiraled into pie fights, bouts of bad songs sung by even worse voices, and back-talking traps!

Thank you all for making our first two years good ones, and we hope you'll stick with us for many more to come as we plan to keep exciting and amazing you!

The Mentors' recent Fishing contest was a tremendous success, unless you were a fish! The winners in the various categories were:

Best Fish Tale: Dordie

Amateur Anglers
1st Place & Biggest Fish: Rosemarrie

1st Place: Reethyn, 2nd Place: Eldorian, 3rd Place: Leanna, Biggest Fish: Eldorian

Master Anglers
1st Place: Gabit, 2nd Place: Llorien, 3rd Place: Dordie, Biggest Fish: Gabit

And while we're on the topic of contests, congratulations to Llorien, the winner of the dress AGM Surreal Contest!

Followers of the Norse Pantheon rejoice! On a recent trailblazing journey in the Nordmarka Forest, a group of people discovered the ruins of a lost city. Almost everything was left in ruins, except for several temples to the various Norse deities. As soon as we're sure that the roof won't cave in on anyone, we'll be sure to open it up to the public!

Come join the fun on April 5th, with Mentor Tkeeri, as she begins a series of Seminars on Role-Playing in Athens. The first, Introduction to Role- Playing in Athens, will be open to all citizens that have a desire to gain new insight into the various aspects of role-playing.

This seminar will give citizens of ALL statures, the tools and confidence to have fun with life in Athens. We would love to hear from everyone, so bring your questions, ideas, and comments. It will be held twice, once at 4pm EST and again at 10pm EST, both in the Sweet Oblivi Inn Sitting Room. We look forward to seeing you there.

2. General News:

Tired of visiting Tyche and having to dig through hundreds upon hundreds of pieces of junk to reach the good stuff at the bottom? Fret no more! The priestess has recently taken an economics class and been given a proper abacus with which to keep count of her inventory so that you shouldn't ever run into those problems again.

Several new skills and toys were given out to the various professions this month. First up were the priest spells which finally reached up to 20 in each realm of magic! Rogues got new traps to burn and impale, which in turn should cut back on amateurs. Alchemists no longer lose out when mixtures prove to be explosive, and storytellers gained the ability to charm animals. And last but not least, the warriors of Athens received a nice non-combat skill with which they can balance weapons!

3. Premium News:

A general Estate meeting will be held on April 7th at 7pm EST, same Estate place, same Estate channel. Keep an eye out for Premium only visits from Clayborne and Freesia and some other surprises during the upcoming month!

4. News from Simutronics:

Join your friends, GameMasters, and the rest of the Simutronics staff in St. Louis, Missouri on the weekend of June 15th-18th to make SimuCon 2000 at the Henry VIII Hotel the biggest and best SimuCon ever!

Several exciting seminars are planned for Hercules & Xena, including discussions led by Waldern on the new combat system and by Mathuna on the intricacies of critters. There will also be an open forum for players to discuss whatever topics they feel are important and additional forums on roleplaying and the gods.
