This game has given me so much." Famine's "Siege Perilous Museum" will soon be open to the public in the north end of Zento at 40N,40W, next to the trail going north to the desert of Deathwatch Beetles. The purpose of the museum is to preserve many of the game's rare and interesting artifacts. LIMERICKS 101 Example: The limerick packs laughs anatomical Into space that is quite economical.

To quote a favorite pirate, they be "...more what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules." Updates will be posted as the contest progresses.
