Punch and Judy Show, Saturday, July 20th, 8:00 p.m. CDT

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

There is going to be a play* at the King’s Men Theater in Britain. This is a casting call for someone, male or female, to play Mr. Punch. The director believes in method acting, so be prepared for combat. However, dragons may not audition and will not be of use to you in this audition. Aspiring actors should meet at the theater on Saturday, at 8:00 p.m. CDT.

*There will not be a play.

In Sosaria, a Punch and Judy show is done by live actors, not puppets. You’ll audition as a group, the way dancers sometimes do. The director will tell you your lines in chat, so be sure to be in “EM Event” chat.

Bring a character who can put aside all thoughts of personal dignity. If he or she is not comfortable running through the streets of Britain waving a string of sausages while singing and assaulting shopkeepers, then that might not be the right character with which to audition.

Originating over 350 years ago from the Commedia dell’arte, Punch and Judy shows are a favorite entertainment on English beaches. If you like, you can see videos or peruse scripts at various sites, such as:

Zox’s Monthly Fishing Contest! Blue Lobster!

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Fishers, continue to be on the lookout for the elusive blue lobster! It can be found in the bitter cold waters of the Ice Dungeon. It must be caught between May 28th and August 6th. Please leave the fish in the mailbox by Tuesday, August 6th, at 11:59 p.m. CST. If your fish is not the heaviest, you may have it back, if you leave a house rune to your mailbox in the bag with your fish.

Royal Spy Promotions and Glasses

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Your Royal Spy rank, and the item that goes with it, will be available, upon request, during the month of July to spies who couldn’t be at the ceremony on Tuesday. These are for ranks earned by Tuesday, June 25th (by attending at least three events).

I would like to remind all Royal Spies that it is your responsibility to make sure you are included on the list each week. Please check the attendance book in the spy base a few days after each Tuesday event to make sure your attendance was recorded. If your name isn’t in it, leave a note a book in our mailbox.
