1. Recent Events:

The day started with Hercules and friends restoring Autolycus, King of Thieves, who'd been invisible since finding a shard of the mysterious, time-warping kronos stone.

Brave adventurers then followed Autolycus to the newly opened city of Thebes. Once inside the fabled seven gates of this wondrous city, our heroes stumbled upon a shard of the kronos stone, instantly transporting them to the modern-day offices of Renaissance Pictures. Grappling with items unknown in ancient Greece such as photocopiers, computer disks and self-locking doors was the challenge of the day.

Congratulations to Pae, winner of one free month of adventure; Garrock, proud new owner of a life-size Xena standee; and the locksmith Jherle, who merely toyed with other prizes before locating the authentic Renaissance Pictures Crew Vest!

2. Upcoming Events:

Join the Mentors and Hosts of Athens Thursday, July 1st, at the Fair of the New Heroics for our latest New Player Night. Beginning at 8 PM EST, mentors will be on hand to answer your questions and lead tours through the Athenian Zoo, a hunting expedition through the catacombs and much more!

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.

Join Mentors for a Novice Hunt on July 4th at 8:30PM EST. No, they're not hunting novices; they're showing novices how to use the implements of critter doom available to them! Learn all the basic skills and teamwork tactics needed to conquer the wilds of ancient Greece. For more skilled hunters, an advanced hunt will be held July 21st at 8:30PM EST.

There are hundreds of verbs to creatively express yourself in ancient Greece - how many do you know? Brush up on your communication skills and learn some outstanding new verbs by attending Nikos Says, July 14th at 7PM EST.

Want to have a snappy come-back to that snooty fellow from Corinth? Attend the next Roleplaying seminar, July 17th at 7PM EST and learn how to use your unique personality to your advantage. Earn more roleplaying rewards, have more fun interacting with fellow players, and broaden your overall roleplaying experience!

The Hunting, Verb, and Roleplaying seminars will all take place in the Sitting Room of the Sweet Oblivi Inn, in the Northwest Quadrant of Athens. To get there, type DIR NORTHWEST, follow the directions, then type DIR INN (follow the directions), and move EAST.

Get down and boogie-oogie-oogie at the Dance contest, July 24th at 7PM EST. Join the footloose fun and enjoy the sights at The Boardwalk! To get there, take Hamaxitos Road south from the Halade Gate to Odhos Sounion, then head on south to the wide granite path. Bring a partner or come solo, just don't miss out on the fun!
