1. Upcoming & Recent Events:

Storytellers all over Greece have often told tales about the exploits of that King of Thieves, the one and only, Autolycus. Now these lore- spinners will have a chance to display their talents with Autolycus himself and a special guest as the judges of the First Annual "Stories About Autolycus" Contest!

While the location, time and exact date are still being determined, you can start preparing now by sharpening your quills and mix up enough ink! Scheduled for sometime in October, this event guarantees to bewitch you with the spellbinding sagas about Autolycus and his adventures!

Stay tuned to the in-game NEWS for details about this great storytelling event!

2. General News:

While working on alchemy, Wanderstar and Mathuna found a bug in how combat deals with the damage enhancing draughts. In short, they were reducing damage done to the user due to a typo in the combat system itself. The bug fix went in on Monday, August 23rd after testing and time to allow all that have benefited from it a head's up. No one is considered to have cheated, as it was a very subtle bug.

Strength enhancers will now reduce combat roundtimes. They have always enhanced damage but until today have done nothing to improve their user's combat roundtimes.

Additionally, a small improvement has been made to skin enhancing formulas, making them more beneficial than ever before. Watch the in-game NEWS for more game fixes and additions!

3. Premium News:

The September Estate Successors' meeting will be on Sunday, September 12th at the Diamond Estate in Athens. Could there be a discussion of the potentially bank-account draining auction?

The recent fashion model search by the fabulous Widow Twanky was a rousing success! Dozens of talented Athenians showed up to gain spots in the Widow's troupe, but only a few made the cut. The chosen models are: Anika, Alydyana, Gabit, Elyna, Hench, Pickoer and Garrock. Congratulations!

The GodsWear Fashion Extravaganza itself is scheduled for October 3rd at 7PM EST. The Widow is still looking for local talent, so she might still tap you on your sartorial shoulders as you go about your business! Be on the look out for her!
