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!

From the Local Ninja Council

Hello, if you are reading this message, it means that I poisoned that soda you drank a few minutes ago. Yes, the carbonated one. You knew it tasted funny, didn't you? Anyway, on to business. After recent violations of ninja code that occurred at the park itself and on our mailing list, I had decided to put our shinobi to the ultimate test: a battle to the death over a small number of meaningless objects. As usual, you guys picked up on this quickly and were soon backstabbing each other and bashing each other's heads in like expert thugs. But there were a few of you who showed the true cunning and skill of the ninja, and I had chosen to honor these people.

Unto the Populace of Pegasus Valley

We are a little more than three months into the current winter reign, and I am feeling optimistic! Even though the chill closes in like a stalking wraith, our attendance remains strong, and new players are signing up on a monthly basis. We have held monthly tournaments, including Weaponmaster, during which our fighters have shown great skill and honor on the battlefield. Prizes have been awarded for those whose tenacity helped raise them to the highest levels of accomplishment in all the recent contests. Even the recent quests have been interesting and enjoyable for those involved, and a great place to earn game items.
These successes are due, for the most part, to YOU as a member of our fair Duchy. Congratulations! Keep it up, and as spring arrives, our numbers should grow; each new member shall be welcomed and will add to our diversity. We'll continue our monthly tournaments, quests, and battlegames, as well as holding Arts & Sciences meetings once every two weeks. As winter progresses, we will be planning next year's Harvest War, preparing for the Rio Grande Highland Games, and trying to reach more potential members at a variety of locations.
