    The Royal Gardeners visited Vesper last night to finish installing plants and decorations around the Vesper bank island. The Vesper town square now sports a number of flowers, a pair of statues at the bank doors, a single mushroom donated by a local malcontent mycologist, a fountain with benches, lamp posts, a lucky coin, and a hovering wisp statue centerpiece, an arcane circle, and a sign commemorating the Beautification Project.


    But there's more! Tucked discreetly behind the bank is Britannia's first in-town goblin restroom. The "pee stump" as our goblin friends call it is surrounded by a circle of mushrooms. A goblin topiary stands atop the stump itself to indicate to goblins the proper place to go. Hopefully this will make our goblin neighbors feel welcome in town and help prevent any misunderstandings like the one in Skara Brae a few months back!


    We ended up with a total of 26 named flowers in the area contributed by the following characters:

    Brian DeSpell
    Celestial Knight
    Holly Bloodhand
    Icky Rotblossom
    Jelly Bean
    Lil Missy
    Lucy Little
    Mariel Silversun
    Nubby Eerwiggles (topiary)
    Victor II

    If your plant didn't make it in, please go ahead and turn it in at my office anyway and I'll try to get the gardeners to pop back by another time to install any latecomers.

    Everyone who contributed a flower is entitled to a special golden pitchfork commemorating their contribution. I know I only distributed a few at the event, so if you gave a flower but didn't get a pitchfork and would like one, please contact me. You may leave a message in my office, at the Vesper Auction House, here on Stratics, at ICQ 123498286, or [email protected].

    I am also very excited to announce that, per King Blackthorn at last night's Council Meeting, Vesper will soon be getting a stable! A site has yet to be determined, but I recommended it be placed over the northern bank bridge near the tailor shop. This would be convenient for the many traders traveling the sometimes dangerous caravan road between Vesper and Minoc.

    Thank you to everyone who participated and/or contributed to the Vesper Beautification Project!

    That was a great idea Governor Ivy ! As proof, it brought together citizens from many other cities, who gave their time and effort in making its realization a success !

    The result is awesome ! My respects to you and everyone involved !
