Guild Heraldry

Finally redid the tiny little heraldry image with some files suitable for printing or making patterns with. I've attached 2 PDFs in full color and line art and some fairly high resolution image files. The original tiny GIF is there too just in case anyone needs it.

Crown Qualifications Requirements Attached

Collector Gnome

More of an annoyance than a real threat, gnomes are bad things to have around the house prior to crown qualifications and Gnomes that collect things are doubly bad to have around. In particular, Gnome Collectors enjoy grabbing shiny objects, magic balls, dull objects, underwear, and pretty much anything else that is lying around and vanishing along with their new found treasure. They collect these things in a pile in their secret lair for part of a secret three step plan.

Ninja Poetry

Roses are red
Violets are blue
The ninjas are coming
What will you do?

We'll chase you
And catch you

And fill you with fright
The ninjas are coming
In the dead of night

So bring yourself a sword
Or at least a sharpened stick
The ninjas are coming
So you better fight quick.

I'm running out of prose here
So I'll make this as blunt as I can
You can't catch me
Because I'm the big bad ninja man!

Quick and Easy Soda Pop Bread

(makes two small loaves in 30 minutes)
Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 12 oz of warm soda (1 can worth, no diet sodas)
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Mix the ingredients together.
  • Separate the dough into two halves and place in small bread pans.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Notes

  • Nearly any type of soda works in this recipe as long as it has sugar or high fructose corn syrup in it.
  • Artificial fruit flavors usually turn out well while subtle flavors can be hard to detect in the bread.
  • The Mountain Dew family of sodas and energy drinks also give an interesting alternative form of caffeine intake.
  • Berry, grape, and apple juices can be substituted for soda but you will have to wait for the bread to raise a bit after you put it in the bread pans.

A Letter from our Champion?

Fear me, I am Anti-Tiwaz! I have taken our champion and placed him in a cold and dark place where he can not write submissions to the newsletter! Bwahahaha!
Tiwaz has a number of plans for you guys, so listen up! It seems that there have been a number of attacks on our duchy over the past 3 months or so. First, you guys lost a bunch of gold to some pesky goblins. It was an epic failure. In the upcoming battle after that, those same goblins had given all of their gold away somehow, presumably by buying liquor or something that is really expensive and easily waste-able. So, some other bad monsters ended with lots of gold!
