FROM THE DRAGONLORD

Greetings!

First, I want to remind everyone that the Oct. 23rd RP has been canceled due to the pending birth of my second child.

Second, I'll be giving birth either October 26th or 27th, so my response time for e-mail messages and such will slow down around then (I'm likely to be completely offline for a couple of days.). I'll try to have my husband send out a message to let you know if it's a boy or a girl and all the other baby trivia <g>.

Third, I want to remind people (and notify newcomers) that Dragonlords is currently running four (yes, four) contests. The prize for each contest will be a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.com. (I'm not eligible for any of these prizes.) Here are the ways you can win one:

  1. Attend the most online RPs. Whoever shows up the most, gets the prize. This is for individual player showing up, not for bringing the most characters <g>.

  2. Write the best story for the 'zine, Awaken the Dragons. Group stories don't count; the story can only have one author. I'm the judge. This will be the story that I think best reflects the world I created in the Centuria series.

  3. Create the best piece of artwork for the 'zine, Awaken the Dragons. I am the judge. Images in the art must be consistent with the world I created in the Centuria series. Other than that, style and content are up to you.

  4. Recruit the most new members for Dragonlords. When someone joins, have them tell me that you recruited them. I'll keep track of who gets the most newbies. New members must remain on the Dragonlords member list through Dec. 15, 2000 to qualify.

All of these contests will take place from Jan. 1, 2000-Dec. 15, 2000. Winners will be announced in the December 2000 newsletter and at the December 2000 online RP. You must be a member of Dragonlords in order to win. If you have any questions about these contests or the rules, contact me at Legend@malcor.com.

Good luck to all! Hopefully things will return to a semblance of normal around here by mid-November <g>. In the meantime, feel free to contact any of our BOD members if you need information about something. They will do the best they can to assist you.

Eternal Death to the Dark One!

Positions Vacant

Although all of our official positions are currently full, we can always use help. If you have some free time and want to help, contact Dragonlord Krin at Legend@malcor.com!

Awaken the Dragons!

We need stories and art for Awaken the Dragons!, the fanzine for Ryanon's Base Camp. The current issue will combined with the upcoming one into a double issue. (Real world writing deadlines and a lack of contributions interfered with the production of the last issue.) The current double issue will hopefully be out before the end of the year (baby permitting <g>.) The deadline for the next issue is December 31st.

Send stories or poems to Legend@malcor.com. Artwork should be sent directly to Dragonlord Timber at healermoon@gmail.com. Remember, you need to file a release form with L.A. Malcor prior to the publication of the 'zine if you contribute text. (No release is necessary for artwork.) Release forms are available online at

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

Full submission guidelines are at

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

Please remember to send all submissions in ASCII or .TXT format.

Members of Dragonlords are entitled to read the completed, yet unpublished, Centuria stories. This is a great way to get to know the world that very few members have taken advantage of. Contact Dragonlord Krin at Legend@malcor.com for your copies.

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!

Dragonlords Webring.

Members of Dragonlords may join our webring. You can find details at

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

OMembers may add as many sites (business, personal, or to another group whose sites are maintained by a Dragonlords member) as they please.

Dragonlords' Chat List.

Dragonlords has started a chat list where you can discuss the Centuria books (or anything else ; Mercedes Lackey's works are always a fun topic . . . ) with L.A. Malcor. The URL to join the list is

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

People do not have to be members of Dragonlords to join the chat list, so this is a good place to refer prospective members.

Dragonlords' Bookstore.

If you want to buy a book online, remember that Dragonlords has a store in association with Amazon.com. I'll be updating the Tanya Huff page soon (At least I'd like to. Anyone feeling ambitious and want to tell me which ones I'm missing?). The Mercedes Lackey page is now up to date.

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

This bookstore is an affiliate of Amazon.com, so you can purchase Toys, Electronics, Music, and much, much more here as well. A percentage of every purchase goes to Dragonlords. Thanks to all our patrons for your support.

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!
