1. Upcoming Events:

In the time of scary ghosts and undead walking the earth, help us scare away those spirits that mean us harm. This is your chance to design your very best pumpkin. Entries will be accepted on October 8th from 3-5 PM EST and on October 18th from 8-10 PM in the Sweet Oblivi Inn. See NEWS 24 in game for more details.

The Promethean Mentor Society will be hosting a masked ball on October 28th at 8 PM in the ballroom of the Palace of Athens. Come and have a howling good time with the Mentors and just plain scare your friends with your best costume. See NEWS 3 in game for details.

With the support of a generous patron of the arts, The Parados Players is taking form. If you have ever had the urge to feel the spotlight, then come to the Theater of Orpheus in Northwest Athens on October 14th at 8 PM EST to audition for the role you were born to play! (To get there, type DIRECTION in game, follow them to the Shrine of Aphrodite and then go one block south and southwest).

2. Recent Events:

The second annual Gods' Fair was a roaring success even with the unrepresented gods doing their best to muck things up! The gods are happy, the citizens of Athens are fluffy (and broke!), and the carnies are all swearing they'll never work in this town again because of all the dinars they lost giving away all those prizes!

Congratulations to all our future smiths and metal workers, all the entries were fantastic! But as is the way with contests, only three could reap the ultimate rewards.

First Place: Tkeeri
Second Place: Melianippe
Third Place: Chikara

For once Athens' best just wasn't good enough, but we can blame it on Dionysus and Pitthea for not giving us all the information we needed! It is with a heavy heart that this reporter must write that Bacchus has indeed been freed to wreak his style of havoc on the known world. One consolation is that Dionysus gave him a good zap to the rear on the way out.

3. Recent and Upcoming Releases:

Well now you can! With one of the new warhands, all it takes is a simple flick of the wrist and you too can smite wrong-doers and evil villains. And all for the low price of 149 dinars! So run out and check those stores, the new wave in destructive hand-wear is coming soon to a shop near you.

The temples in Athens have recently announced that the gods are now offering a new and improved version of the spell Spirit Strike. The new version grants you one STRIKE for every three levels of training you have, and allows you to STRIKE your foes easier than ever before.

Keep an eye out soon for the new lock-picking system! Rogues are salivating and everyone else is kind of just looking at them with confused stares, but they are bound to please everybody! Ares has Hermes working frantically as we speak to get the locks changed in accordance with the new system, so disregard any foul expletives you might hear from the heavens.

4. Premium News:

Halloween Madness at the Estate and Premium Auction are on their way! Watch GAZETTE after October 15th for details of where, when and how! And don't miss the next Estate meeting on Sunday, November 12th at 7 PM EST.
