1. Upcoming Events:

MENTOR ROLEPLAYING LECTURE
The Mentor Society is proud to present its November Roleplaying lecture on Saturday, November 6th, at 9 PM Eastern in the Sweet Oblivi Inn sitting room. We will be delving into the controversial topic of Powerhunting vs. Roleplaying. Come learn tips from Mentor Tkeeri, or share your own experiences about combining leveling and roleplaying.

ANNUAL AUCTION!
Plan to save your dinars for an event so long-awaited and jam-packed, it takes two days to unfold! The annual auction is scheduled for 3 PM EST on November 20th and 6PM EST on November 21st. The first hour or so each day will be devoted to Estate Successors, but after that all remaining items will be available to anyone with the right amount of coin to spend. Watch in game NEWS for more information!

It's not exactly a public flogging, but if you arrive early on November 20th, you'll get to see the HX Mentors get what they so richly deserve!


2. Recent Events:

AUTOLYCUS CONTEST WINNERS
Congratulations to the talented contestants who concocted wonderfully creative tales of the King of Thieves in the Autolycus Storytelling Contest! Athena, patroness of Athens, judged the contest alongside Autolycus, who assured his audience that the tales presented were "mostly" fiction.

And the winners are:

First Place - Anika, for the Guardian of Thieves
Second Place - Epoclaen, for The Shimmering Cloak
Third Place - Leanna, for a lovely poem

Thank you to everyone who participated; to Skorche, Heartsong and Calliope's Children who sponsored the contest; to Athena for graciously consenting to judge at the last minute; and to Autolycus for being so inspirational!


3. Premium News:

FASHION WELCOMED IN DIAMOND ESTATE
Fashion was well received at the Widow Twanky's GodsWear Fashion Show! The Widow gives her most sincere thanks to the fabulous models and to all guests who came for a glimpse of the season's fashions!


4. The Grapevine:

Tired of the towering temples and crowded villages of Athens? Rumor has it players may soon be unsuspectingly whisked away to exotic new places. No need to bring your own asp-irin…we've got plenty!
