Zox's Monthly Fishing Contest

After so much excitement at the Beach Party, Zox thinks it would be wonderful to spend more time in Ilshenar! She would like an Autumn Dragon Fish for her Museum of Fish. The fish must be caught between August 29th and September 23rd. Please leave the fish in the mailbox by September 23rd at 11:59 p.m. CDT. The mailbox is at the Great Lakes Award Hall and Museum, 31° 7’N 47° 15’W Malas.

If your fish is not the heaviest, you may have it back, if you leave a house rune to your mailbox with the fish.

Beach Party

It’s too close for comfort
This heat has got right out of hand
It’s a cruel, cruel summer

— Bananarama, “Cruel Summer”


It’s so hot out… Let’s escape to the beach! We can splash and play in the gentle waves with Summer herself, and swim with her cute pet dolphin, Pat. We’ll ignore those cruel, biting rumors of trouble in this sandy paradise.

Wear your cutest beach outfit! And maybe some tastefully accessorized pieces of armor, if you like. Just in case.


Meet at the Counselor Hall on Saturday, August 29th, at 8 p.m. CDT.

You may leave your lures and bait at home. Life guards, marine biologists, and soothsayers alike warn that this Saturday is an inauspicious day on which to fish. However, at the end of the beach party, a new “catch of the month” will be requested (it will also be posted here).

Danger and Despair

Written by EM Malachi

Laughter and music filled Castle Salle' Dacil, and the drink flowed freely. The younger knights did not appreciate the situation, and the veterans chose to feign high spirits for the sake of morale. Tomorrow, their ranks would join with the armies of Britannia to strike against Mondain’s monstrous legions. Even if the battle was won, many of their number would die far from home.

Keeping the worry from his face, Shamino Salle’ Dacil, the Ranger King, stopped at each table of revelers to share a toast or laugh at a story. They were good people, and while he had only been their king for a few short years, he already owed them everything.

Shamino kept the mask in place until he retired to the royal solar. Seeing him, Beatrix put down her writing and joined him by the window. She wrapped her arms around him, pulling him close. The evenings were cool in the mountains around the castle, and her warmth was appreciated. They stood in silence for a time, looking down at the fields below. The farmhouses that dotted the countryside were dark, but there was light and movement in the small hamlet of Lost Friends where they were preparing the pack horses that would provision the army. From the high cliffs that helped protect the castle, his war effort seemed insignificant. Shamino sighed, “I hope this is the right decision.”
