    First off I want to thank Aedon Durreah and EM Cernunnos for a fun filled evening. The Knights.. umm.. Ghost's Rest Tavern set the perfect scary mood for the tales of horror shared by all. It was nice seeing all of you that came out to join us and take part in this special night of stories.

    Second its great to see that Catskills long tradition of role playing is still going strong and the EMs are willing to support it. (I loved the Aegis Glade Sign outside the Tavern. Reminded of the old days when player organized communities were rewarded for their efforts to make the game better.) I still remember when Catskills was known as the shard you went to if you wanted to Role Play. I would love to see us get that reputation again. So keep up the good work!

    I also want to thank all the brave souls who dared tell a tale, and congratulate Anne Nomilly who had the best tale of the evening.

    Aedon, I'd like to thank you once again for being such a gracious host last nite. It really was a lot of fun. Of course, I kind of kept waiting for the EM to start leaking orange ooze but, thankfully, that never happened! :)

    My thanks as well to our wonderful EM's for supporting ALL play types. Keep up the good work guys.
