Grinding of the worst kind. As things currently stand, there is _significant_ advantage to frequently checking the blog to see if the lights have just turned off, so you can sneak off to another room and avoid being attacked (or, if you’re a Murderer, to attack before anyone can move away).  This will be the… Hix 01/19/10 3 01/19/10
“Consecutive” questionnaire All rune sequences that we deal with this Dynasty are likely to be finite in length, so I think we can agree that it will be unnecessary to ever specify “finite sequence” from here on.  We will, however, be needing to refer to one sequence being “inside” another, and the… Hix 11/06/09 3 11/06/09
Just saying… From the Ruleset: “Each Dynasty is headed by a single Player, known as the Leader” “When a DoV passes, all other active DoVs are failed, and a new Dynasty begins with the Player who made the DoV as its Leader.” “The Hiatus continues until the new Leader posts an Ascension… Hix 11/04/09 8 11/06/09

Skirmish 3: The Return of Charisma Notes on the most recent skirmish: Pharoh Necho gets -2 and +1 to Charisma from his abilities. Loki gives -2 to Charisma for each of Clucky’s Einherjar; Churchill raises Shakespeare and Hildegard to his level. Totaling up the Skirmish Ratings, Asgard clearly beats Folkvangr, and aaronwinborn has the highest, with… Hix 12/07/07 1 12/07/07
Einherjar candidates Date: 3 December This means that lots of new recruits are available.  They all have special attributes, so please check the wording and report any anomalies.

Skirmish 2: Electric Boogaloo Passed out Einherjar to the high bidders, and took the opportunity of an empty unrecruited list to run a skirmish (the skirmish rule needs work concerning this issue). Loki has challenged us to a dance-off! Jeanne d’Arc, Beowulf, and Lola Montez attracted the largest crowds of onlookers by far, while… Hix 11/30/07 7 11/30/07

Was it just a clever ruse… ...or did I screw up? Johnny Appleseed should not have been given to Loki; I just went and double-checked that all of the bids I received have been recorded on my master list of bids, but discovered that a single bid was mistakenly left off—a bid on Johnny Appleseed. Kevan… Hix 11/24/07 2 11/25/07
About your performance… Early this morning, a small group of 14 Einherjar raided the Library of Loki.  Their mission was to locate and steal back a small number of powerful spellbooks that fell into enemy hands last month.

Valhalla welcomes Jack, Oliver, Roman, and Rincewind. Rodlen brings us Jack Sparrow from Davy Jones’s locker for 50 acorns. Josh exhumes Oliver Cromwell’s spirit for 15 acorns, shortly before his body is subjected to a posthumous execution.
