Tis that time again! - Gazete Issue 4 - 1425 S.R.

We've all done it now, the fiddling with the clocks that is, so "normal" times have returned. Normal in the sense of the difference between server time and Michel Delving time. You'll be asked to turn the clocks back one hour again either October 27 or November 3, depending on where you live.

I'm not sure if it is the clock fiddling that triggers it, but dear Nannie is again preparing to guide us through the election of Shire May Queen and King! It is important, that we now send her the names of suitable candidates. Do this before April 19th. On April 19th make sure you visit the Green Dragon, as Nannie will then tell you who will be the candidates you can vote for. That list will also be published in the Gazette, but then you will not see the surprise on the faces of the candidates! After April 19th Nannie expects to receive your votes. How to vote she will tell you when the candidates are announced.

Now another thing: you may have noticed, that ...
