Here is step-by-step advice on how to build a banner proposal picture. It’s not the only way to put such a picture together, but it may be helpful.
A bee buzzes around your face and drops a teeny tiny note on your nose. You find your spyglass and manage to read the note:
Pleazzze come to my bee yard, The Buzzzy Beezzz, in Vezzzper, on Zaturday at 4. –Beejorn the Apiarist
You think for a moment and then remember that there is a beekeeper in Vesper. You decide to go and hope he’ll serve snacks. You fall asleep wondering why that last ‘s’ wasn’t zzzzzz
Town recognition and banners is back! You can read about the new rules. Towns that have already been recognized and banners that have already been built are grandfathered in. However, they cannot be used as precedent for an application. Petitions for town recognition can be dropped off at the mailbox. Petitions will be put on display, with Lady Louisa’s responses, at the Royal Surveyor’s Office, which is on the east side of Britain at 4° 13?S, 21° 47?E.

We once believed the stone maps, relics of some ancient people, were wrong. The distances and shapes and positions did not match the world we had measured, and in our arrogance, we did not consider the movement of time. We were the ones who were wrong. The world changes, and even the most sturdy mountain is drifting on a sea of molten lava. We once believed this was all too slow to bother our work. Of course our maps would be good for ten thousand years! Then the Shattering happened, and the world changed again, powerful sorcery tore apart coasts and smashed mountains together.
When a map is drawn, it traps a moment in time. The world moves on from that moment. Cities fall, islands sink, mountains rise. Take nothing for granted.
Here are several maps I have copied from other sources that show some of the profound changes to our geography. I have also provided a key with the symbols and notations I could decipher.
Map #1 – 700,000 Years Ago
Map #2 – The Age of Darkness
Map #3 – A Year After the Shattering
Map #4 – Five Years After the Shattering
Map #5 – Present Day
1. The Followers of Armageddon are planning something major based on the first ancient map.
2. There are four secrets on the first map.
3. The locations on the ancient map correspond to locations in the present day, but things on the map may have moved.
4. It is your task to decipher the maps and determine the four locations the FoA will hit.
5. E-mail the four locations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. This weekend the Royal Guard will use this information to stop the FoA.
1. The FoA are often associated with Wisps.
2. The key does not contain all map symbols.
There will be a meeting of the Royal Britannian Guard on Friday, May 13th, at 8 p.m. CDT. Meet on the second floor of the Warriors’ Guild in Britain, 9° 40’S, 1° 7’E.
