Ending a good year well - Gazette Issue 12 -1423 S.R.

We have arrived in the last month of the year again, traditionally a month with many festive activities and celebrations, one of them being my own birthday, but that is behind us already. I thank everyone who congratulated me and/or played a special tune for the occasion. But no, the festivities that I mean are centered around Yule. Soon, the gates of Winterhome will be opened again, giving you the opportunity to visit that fairy-tale like place again. Will they now play a proper version of "an ode to Old Bloodtusk"? The Shire-based actors of G.O.A.T. showed them how! There will be concerts too, both announced and spontaneous. Winterhome wassailing is something you should not miss out on!

Unrelated to all that, I am glad that I can tell you, that the technical troubles we have experienced at the Gazette Office, have been temporarily! They vanished just as sudden as they began. But measures have to be taken.
