    The Perilous Inquirer
    Vol 1, 49th Issue
    June 6, 2014

    ONLY 3 ISSUES REMAINING
    The Perilous Inquirer will cease publication after the forthcoming 52nd issue. It's been a year of fun. So many others have contributed that I cannot name them all here but readers and supporters know who they are. Please accept my heartfelt thanks, all of you. Some readers, probably those less literate or completely unhinged, actually collect all issues. Back copies will continue to be placed for a while on the vendor, Siege Droppings.
    Priorities change. I have finished my novel, The Phoenix Diary, and am currently self-editing the final draft. So I'll be spending July onward promoting it to publishers. Wish me luck :) It's not deathless prose; but a light Sci-Fi adventure about 3 teens and their quest to restore civilization in the world of 2100. You can get an idea of it at http://ThePhoenixDiary.com. Oh, and the illustrator, Rachel Cowan, is a player I met on UO.

    CASINO NIGHT
    The 3rd Barter Town Casino Night is this Sunday June 8th 8:00-9:00pm EST
    Read all about it here:

    ADVICE TO THE LOVE-LOST
    By Dr. BN'dere-Dundat
    StUdLy writes: "I got a great bod! Flowing blond hair, rakish mustache. Big sword and I'm naked!! My title is "Ready" -yet girls don't talk to me much. What else do I need?"

I meet so many wonderful guys here and they always say such nice things to me and fill me with their joy and then I fall in love with them and give them my heart and then *uncontrollable sob* I find out all they wanted wasn't my heart at all but...."
    Dr. Ruth: "Thanks, Willng. I understand. Be comforted that this never happens to you in the real world, does it, my dear?"

    HOROSCOPE
    Gemini May 21 - Jun 21
    Enlightenment and confusion will be yours this week, when a tree falls in the woods only to make the sound of one hand clapping.

    TRIVIA MONK
    To receive a prize, be the first to go to the Trivia Monk on our steps & say the word that answers this question:
    "What spell did UO ban after it was used to bombard people inside their homes?"

    BELLAIRE MUSEUM SHOP
    Ring in the Summer at the classy Bellaire Museum Shop, just SE of the TerMur moongate, within GuardZone.
    Always stocked with unique items you won't find elsewhere. Walk to the roof and enjoy a safe and pleasant shopping trip.

    CORRECTION
    In the last issue we may have incorrectly reported that the new guild from Atlanta is named Exported Exulted Exiles Klub (EEEK). The correct name is Exported Exulted Exiles (~**~). Or maybe they just changed their name to embarrass us. We report, you decide.
