    ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~ IN CHARACTER EVENT ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~
    The event will be held in the glorious Castle British to honor Lord British's contributions to the Britain Public Library and the establishment of the culture and class of the city. It will be held on January 31st, 2015 (BY 379) at 8 o'clock in the evening. Dinner and drinks will be served at the dinning hall and small tables and chairs will be set up in the Coronation Room, as well for more private dining.

    Please create your characters ahead of time on Catskills, if you do not have one, and message us to assist you with the basics. We can certainly help fund you to get some dresses/clothes that suit the event. It is a "Black Tie" formal event.

    Please remember that you MUST be in character at all times during the event.

    My fellow Sosarians! Come ye, come all to the Benefactor's Dinner for the Britain Public Library and enter a special contest is being held for those of you that have a passion for the written word.

The rewards will be a GIFT CARD provided to us by NEWEGG for $100.00 (we will need your email address) and 100 million gold for the Grand Prize winner. Second and third place winners will recieve $20 GIFT CARDS and 20 million gold each.

    Here are the RULES for ENTERING:

    If I might make a suggestion, the 20-page book really isn't enough space for a good story...neither is the 40-pager. You might want go go to the 200 page craftable book if you're looking for a good, well-rounded story. ;)

    Nothing keeping folks from donating the 200 page books because we're DEFINITELY asking folks to donate anything they want, but since that's not easily available to everyone... for the contest we're keeping it to 20 pages. Did this last year and got a lot of good short stories.

    I do hope you come Dot!!! And bring some friends. ;)

    Thanks but truth is I barely have time to attend things on GL's anymore. Tuesdays are always EM nights, Wed I work, Thursday is Auction and Friday-Sunday I work. Mondays are High Council every other week and anymore it seems we are always busy with something on the opposing Monday nights. I do get home late on Wed night between 9:30 and 10.... but often no one wants to do much that late. Otherwise I'm often up all night by myself Monday-Thursday. Playing Solo... joy. :( Anyway I wouldn't worry about it.
