12 Days

In just 12 days, we'll begin updating Wayfarer's Moon once again.

To those of you who've been patiently waiting, we thank you.

To those of you who've been impatiently waiting, we thank you too, though we ask that you stop egging our homes.

To those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, disregard the previous sentences.

Regardless, we're excited to finally be updating again and I'm happy to say that a veritable smorgasborg of monsters, magic and violence await. Hint: The Baron loses a battle, but gains a victory nonetheless.

In other news, the first Tales story is being worked on and we'll be announcing when that series will be starting once we have a firm date.

In other, other news, I cannot ride a unicycle. Startling, I know.

Anyway, have a good weekend look for the usual blogs next week.

Smorgasborg is the coolest word
I've read in a long time. Do you want to know why? Because as you might know smorgasbord is originally borrowed from swedish, and 'bord' means 'table'. Borg on the other hand means fortified castle, so basically what smorgasborg means is sandwich castle :D
I laughed at that.

Yay, I invented a new word!

Granted, it was completely by accident, but I will still take credit nonetheless.

Now I just need to figure out what a castle sandwich is . . . :)

I'd have to guess a somrgasborg is two castles unnaturally close together. For example, maybe they're built on the same spot in parallel dimensions, with many secret portals between them.

Of course, there's more mundane ways to sandwich castles together - one could make a town sandwich by putting a castle on either side, for example.

Of course, that brings up the possibility that it's the castle that's actually sandwiched, in which case it could be a dwarven castle that stands as a gateway to their underground civilization, and it's sandwiched between two opposing enemy factions. So, for example, you might have goblins on one side, and hill giants on the other. The beauty about this situation is, so long as the dwarves keep their heads down, the goblins and hill giants will probably be just as happy to fight one another rather than the dwarves.
