The next publish won't go out to Test Center until early next week, but we wanted to give you some goodies to drool over! Spring Cleaning 2008 Ah, how time flies. Spring has come once again to Britannia, but the sweet smell of blossoming flowers outside our homes can’t belie the memories of battles fought long so very long ago.

This what Draconi Sad: "In fact, the entire point of them *not* being in the turnin is because they have a future use, along with the threads, and it’d be misleading of us to have everyone turn them in and then in the next publish say "Tada! Here’s what you could’ve had" I will be glad to make alot of room in my houses ! I can't wait to turn alot of stuff in.
