Calling All Gatherers!


 It’s me, Baxter! I bid you a fond beginning to autumn, and hope that it comes with cooler temperatures, breathtaking foliage, and delicious pumpkin spiced coffee from Aces. (Please?)

aloeAs much as I’d like to spend the entirety of this announcement endlessly gushing about the glories of pumpkin spiced coffee, alas, I have business to conduct. During the heat of the summer months, I embarked on an expedition to gather some of the rarer components located throughout Irvanshire. While on the trail of a kaleidoscope of butterflies, I was brought close to Elmerton and, to my amazement, found what appeared to be components so ancient that they hadn’t been seen in eons!

My working theory is that some sort of time-disruption, caused by the Evernight Forest, may have brought seeds, spores, and stones into the era of today, causing these primordial components to appear! In addition to this, it seems is if, when transcending time through the Evernight, small collections of what I can only guess is the essence of the Evernight, as they appear to have coalesced into small, bead-like stones of the deepest blues and purples, appear nearby them. I can only guess that, as these time disruptions occur, more of these components will be left throughout your town. However, please do not attempt to gather these components unless you have specifically learned how to Gather Components- they are fragile and I need these intact. Crushed components are not great for anything.

I’ll tell you what. IPotion-2-icon plan on being in town around noon on Fortuneday to get some pumpkin spiced coffee, and will gladly pay you 4 silver nobles for every three primordial components you give me at that time. If you wish to sell me some in an amount NOT divisible by three, I will pay you 1 noble, instead.  It is my full intention to take these mysterious substances and study them, in hopes of unlocking mysteries related to not only alchemy and toxicology, but the history of each of the components and theories on how each component manages to grant the properties it does. Anyone seeking to discuss such things should seek me out at this time as well, so we may correspond in the future.

Yours in Cheesemaking and Romping Around In the Woods,

Magestry’s Best of Stillbreeze 126

Here are our picks for the August 26th-28th event:

Jack Garren for consistently good roleplay as a PC and NPC.

Jack Garren for consistently good roleplay as a PC and NPC.


This month’s Best PC has been an integral part of the game and a stand-up member of our community since the beginning. Myk Meyer as Jack Garren has not only been a wonderful role-player and a model PC, but he has also been a warm and welcoming presence for new players and has worked to help maintain the friendly player base we are so proud of these days. On top of that, he always makes sure to come and help out NPCing whenever he can. Thanks, Myk, for all you do for the game and congrats!

I had a great time RPing with Jack Garren. He was quick to talk to many of the new players, and he’s eccentric but enjoyable to be around. I even had a chance to witness some of his deeper character traits.

Jack is another who is always on his A-game. Roleplaying his own particular brand of crazy, and always engaging newer players, the Elmerton just wouldn’t be the same without him.

A lot of the new pc’s were very fun to interact with and meet, but Jack really takes the prize this time. He really went out of his way to “recruit” many of the newer players.

I really like Jack. He is so good at RP that I actually thought he was upset OOG and had to ask him about it. He also goes out of his way to make new players feel comfortable and takes time to answer their questions about the land and important people of Elmerton.

Jack is always hilarious but seeing a dark-side of him was sobering. Great roleplaying

Jack– he was fantastic in his role-playing, and really engaged the new characters right from the start. I pretty much feel obligated to help him rise to royalty.



This month’s Best NPC is a very new addition to the game who really saved our butts and your dinners this game! While Wilhelm was feeling under the weather, Steve Koval really stepped up to help out and make all those burgers and dogs for you hungry folks! On top of that, he was ready to help out wherever he could including playing crunchy roles or whatever else needed to be done. We are impressed with his abilities and extremely glad to have him at game! Thanks so much for all your help, Steve!
