Happy New Year!

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

Another year draws to a close, my third as an Event Moderator and Elizabella’s second. We would like to thank all the players of Great Lakes for making it an amazing year.

2011 was a year of many stories: demon lords, dragon councils, and ancient secrets. The year began with the death of Dawn, Queen of Britannia, and ended with her cities torn by unrest. The Royal Spies and the Royal Guard saved the world from Virtuebane, a reborn Zog, and the horrors of the Pyramid. We saw the founding of the Village of Dawn, the rebuilding of Magincia, and the birth of a Crimson dragon.

Happy New Year’s and keep your swords sharp for 2012!


Merry Christmas!

In its early years, Vesper, a bustling port and mercantile city, had a steady trade in walrus. The walrus gave food, pelts, and ivory to Vesper. Walrus oil kept its lanterns burning through the cold, dark nights of winter. At this, the darkest time of the year, the people of Vesper give thanks for the creature that sustained their ancestors.

Last year, walruses, and their allies, flying pigs, sought vengeance for the slaughter of their ancestors. They were utterly routed. Their leaders, Bucky and Splat fled, with this vow:
