1. Upcoming and Recent Events:

The clash of shields and the ring of swords raised and bashed together in the jubilant and exultant exclamation of dozens of happy warriors rang out last week as the plans for a forum were announced. Join GameMaster Quantum for this sure to be bloody get-together on April 11th at 9pm EST in the Hero's Welcome Bar. See News 23 in-game for more grisly details.

And a voice came to GameMaster Twylight from on high, "You shall hold a forum with GameMaster Mathuna on April 18th. You shall discuss priest issues in the Hero's Welcome Bar. You shall begin at 9:30pm EST. There shall be much rejoicing." So being the righteous harpy she is (She told us to call her that!) she set out like a woman on a mission and the fruits of her labor soon became apparent. See News 33 for more details.

The Hero's Welcome Bar is going to be a dangerous place come April 21st at 9pm EST. We've heard from a reliable source that Sid has purchased additional insurance, particularly fire damage, in preparation for the alchemical festivities. If you hear an explosion around the end of the month, don't worry… it's just GameMasters Mathuna and Wanderstar attending to business as usual. See News 35 for more details.

Kleftis has been hinting to us for months that she has something new up her sleeve, and it looks likely that sometime this upcoming month she will be playing her hand. Keep an eye out for her wagon stocked with new wares for those who like to keep up with the current styles and be the first hero on your block with one of her new accessories.

2. Athenian News:

People have been tackling this new diversion with a love/hate relationship as they fold and unfold and fold some more until their creations become reality. Gwithian's shop is booming with the sales of papyrus, making expansion to another location look very profitable. As was promised at the forum, here are the folds for making a Mood Fish for those who haven't figured it out yet: Pleat, Mountain Fold, Pull, Crease, Tuck, and a Reverse Fold. This one will be tough for those with no skill, but is at a novice's level.

You heard it here first! Hairstyling is on its way to becoming an integral part of Athenian society. Tired of that topknot? Coiled braids got you in a twist? Want to brush that man right out of your hair and let it hang loose and free? Well it won't be long before you can do just that! In the mean time go buy yourself a hat if you're ashamed of your do and keep your eyes peeled for that new style you so desire.

For those who haven't noticed yet, the sniffle verb has already gone through a few changes, and the same thing will be happening with SHAKE. In an effort to make it easier for you to express yourself in a leaf-like manner, the verb has been redesigned into a new sleek and ergonomic shaking experience. Watch for it soon!

3. Premium News:

This month's Premium Estate Meeting will be on Sunday, March 8th at 7pm EST at the Diamond Estate. Join Morguena as she will be covering the monthly events. Hope to see you there!

Join Morguena for her monthly Estate Raffle on Tuesday, April 17th at 8pm EST in the Diamond Estate southern sitting room! A delicate prize will be offered this time. 100 dinars per ticket, one ticket per account. You do not need to be in the room to win, but you do need to be in game.

Twanky is taking her act on the road, and she will be in Athens on Thursday, March 19th at 10pm EST to chat with the locals. So grab yourself a steaming mug of coffee and sit back, it's like buttah. Talk amongst yourselves. Here's a topic: The Holy Roman Empire was neither holy nor Roman nor an empire. Discuss… (So the empire doesn't even exist yet, no big whoop.)

Yemaye will be at the Diamond Estate Merchant's Room on Monday April 23rd at 9:30pm EST altering weapons. The only catch is she is a bit peevish when it comes to sharp edges, so she will only be altering weapons with NO blades or sharp pointy edges. Ye' may want to have that sword of yours spiffed up, but ye're just plum out of luck!
