    I had a look in Vyrins thread and I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the awesome community submissions there. Great, great, great. Lots of astounding talent. I was also thrilled to see some tackling confronting or controversial topics.

    As it was seen that my story is too long (1000 characters too long for chapter 1)~sighs~ I have broken it into 2 parts (Chapter 1 Vol 1, Chapter 1 Vol 2) and since the title was not seen as proper.. I have altered the name to be for Chapter 1 "Chapter 1 - Memories of The High Priestess" .. For Chapter 2 "Chapter 2 - The Calling of DarkStarr"

    Are these more fitting?

    I am open to suggestions.

    I sold a few of the published books to the bookseller in Owl's Head, thinking that he would have them in his sales inventory, but when I immediately spoke with him again, the books I sold him were not there. I suppose this re-selling functionality hasn't been implemented yet, since I haven't noticed player-made armor and weapons for sale by NPC vendors either.

    Right now only the public vendors will sell items from players.

    Looking very much forward to this event. I don't know if I will be able to attend, but I will try, and certainly be there in spirit. Wish I knew about this a week ago, the deadline was on my birthday! I totally missed it.

    I will stop trying to condense my story and just split it into two. Pt 1 this time and pt 2 next time. I wrote over 8000 words? WOW.

    Let the creativity flow! I will think about organizing a series for R20 too.

    The book faire had a huge turnout largely thanks to Vyrin and the Write's Round Table book trading event.. so I just wanted to come in here and give a big thanks for making that happen.

    Winfield was gracious enough to loan us his geocache chest for the remainder of R19 for the purpose of exchanging books. It is now sitting on the lot just inside the reading area in the back corner. You will find several copies of various books from the afore mentioned series as well as some others people have written. There are also some blank books in there. Please feel free to use the chest for books. Leave your written works for others to enjoy or pick up some copies for your own library.. or just stop on by and enjoy reading what others have left.

    All I ask is please be courteous and try to keep the chest orderly.

    Again the book faire lot is in PaxLair between the maze and the barn.

    I was surprised and delighted at how popular the event was. For those who couldn't make it, there are plenty of books sitting in the geocache chest.
    They wait patiently for you to take the plunge and experience a few of the engaging creations of our many talented writers.

    If someone accesses the chest in bag mode and sorts all the items nice and orderly, then someone comes up behind them and opens it in list mode, would that reset all the items to be stacked ontop of each other in the top left corner? That's annoying..

    But yes, sounds like the fair was a great success! Hooray! I hope to check out the library soon, though I might wait until next release when i can see the books on a shelf rather than in a chest.

    I never know what to expect from many events.. especially new ones. So I was also pleasantly surprised at the turnout. As it was the last scheduled event of the day some people even stuck around for an extra hour.

    I have no idea how that works. Either way all the books have the same cover right now so your still have to do some poking around. I don't know why list most would do anything unless people are removing a lot of books and putting them back. So long as people aren't deliberately messing up the chest I think that's all we can ask right now.

    This event will have an anniversary soon. May we re-print our First Series books? or even better, have a Second Series event? @Vyrin

    I was just wondering if people have re-created their community series volumes after the final wipe. I haven't yet, but was planning to do so today.
