Welcome to the Dragonlords of Dumnonia newsletter for Ryanon's Base Camp. The following is information to keep you up-to-date on what's happening around Centuria. Good luck to you in battle or adventure.

Events

These are upcoming online events. Please check the message board on the main site and the events schedule on the Members Only site frequently. Dates do change occasionally, and other information you need to enjoy the RPs is linked to each event. We don't want to clutter your mailboxes with all of this data, so please make use of the website as much as you can.

Note:  This month's RP will be held on Delphi. Note the change! If people like this new system, we will abandon IRC and go with Delphi permanently. You should have received your invite in your e-mail, but not all of you have visited the forum yet. Please do so prior to the event if you have not done so already. If you need an invite to the forum, message me at Legend@malcor.com.

FROM THE DRAGONLORD

Greetings!

Welcome to all of our new members! It's nice to "see" fresh faces at the RPs. New folks, you're going to see some snips of stories arrive in your mailboxes. These are e-mail RPs. Feel free to add. If you're nervous about sending to the group, just send your addition to me, and I'll paste it in the next time I post. I collect all these bits, then publish the completed story in the fanzine.

Donít fret about not knowing the world well yet. I correct glitches as we go along (and I even make horrific glitches myself occasionally, so no one needs to feel bad <g>).

The best way to learn about Dragonlords, though, is to participate. Write something. Draw something. Volunteer to help with some of the ongoing paperwork around here (I know, I know. I'm dreaming again <g>.). Still, the best way to get to know your character is to have him or her do something. It doesn't have to be big. Just type in that your warrior swings his sword or your elf pours a glass of wine or whatever strikes your fancy. The other players and I will take it from there.

Looking forward to seeing more posts from all players, old and new!

Eternal Death to the Dark One!

Positions Vacant

This position still needs to be filled. We'd really appreciate the help!

  1. Timeline Keeper: We need some help reconciling the timeline from the Centuria series with the club timeline. The job involves going through the books and short stories to detail what happened when. Anyone want to lend a hand?

"DRAGONPROPHET" PUBLISHED (Again)!

The first of the Centuria stories, "Dragonprophet" was nominated for Best Story of the Year for Eternity Magazine. It will also appear in a trade paperback anthology of The Best of Eternity, scheduled for release in Fall/Winter 1999. (A printing equipment glitch at the press has delayed publication until Winter/Spring 2000.) Cover price will be $19.95. [Plans for anthology canceled June 2000.]

Also, remember that members of Dragonlords are entitled to read the completed, yet unpublished, Centuria stories. Contact Dragonlord Krin at Legend@malcor.com for your copies.

Other Publication News.

From Scythia to Camelot, the nonfiction book about King Arthur that I coauthored with C. Scott Littleton, is now available in paperback! The cover price is $25.95. This edition will be revised from the original, with corrections of errata, new material and a new appendix. Garland has also promised that the index will be corrected in this copy. Order information is available at:

http://www.dragonlordsnet.com/bkmalcor.htm

Just click on the title. You can find an online review at

http://members.aol.com/heroicage2/ha2tf.htm

I'm willing to autograph copies, if you want to pop for the postage (and return postage/envelope) to send them to me. I can try to get Scott's autograph for you as well, if you'd like. Just let me know!

My second article on Lucius Artorius Castus, the Roman soldier who I think was the historical figure behind the legends of King Arthur, is online at

http://members.aol.com/heroicage2/ha2lac.htm

And I just spent the evening correcting galley proofs for an article on Merlin that will be appearing in Arthuriana.

Dragonlords' Chat List.

Dragonlords has started a new chat list where you can discuss the Centuria books (or anything else <g>) with L.A. Malcor. The URL to join the list is

Dragonlords' Bookstore.

If you want to buy a book online, remember that Dragonlords has a store in association with Amazon.com. When you buy through our store, Dragonlords earns a fee. All money goes to help defray the cost of running Dragonlords so our memberships can stay free. The URL of our bookstore is

http://www.dragonlordsnet.com/bkstore.htm

Dragonlords' Video Store.

Dragonlords also has an online video store in association with Reel.com. You can look up filmographies of actors and directors as well as buy videos. Proceeds go to help defray the cost of running Dragonlords. [Discontinued March 15, 2000]

There is a new special section for the Academy Awards. Check it out!

Dragonlords' T-shirt

Since no designs have been submitted for a club T-shirt, we have put this project on hold until at least two designs are submitted.

If you would like to submit a design for the club T-shirt, send your suggestion in .gif or .jpg format to Dragonlord Krin at Legend@malcor.com. Try to keep your design suggestions to four colors or less, since that will significantly cut our costs.

As soon as two submissions are received, Krin will put the suggestions up on a webpage so we can vote on what we like best. Once the design is chosen, Krin will put up a sign-up sheet so we can see how many people actually want the shirts. Pricing will vary, depending on how many shirts are ordered.

You have completed your assignment thus far;
continue to strive onwards.

Until next forum,
keep safe!
