GM Estild gives a sneak preview of the next issue of Creating Adventure, coming very soon. He says look for post-cap development details. Then start looking forward to announcements and “engaging players”. Whee! Read what he said on Discord, starting at: http://bit.ly/37Y6IO0

Benevolent Overlord Wyrom gave up some stats about Duskruin on Discord. The HESS alone drained 60% of the total bloodscrip generated for this run and Spellbound drained over 27%! I am not sure if we need to do more shopping at other shops, or what!

The Black Wolves lead a hunt the first Tuesday of March for all levels of adventurers. Come to the Black Wolf courtyard at 8pm for spells and refreshments and the hunt will start at 8:30pm.

GM Estild noted a change for Dispels for non channeled spells to only remove positive effects! http://bit.ly/2Tj7vUv

Naos announced some great improvements for Call Familiar. 1) Realm Boundaries will not waken the familiar to follow 2) After a familiar is sleeping for more than 5 minutes, it hides itself away and stops ambient messaging 3) When spell is active, it will stack for a full mana cost 4) Wizards with more than 40 Wizard Base Spells can use SUMMON to specify a detailed familiar. More Ranks give you better chances. Read all the details at the Officials: http://bit.ly/32saMox

Share all the great loot drops you found at Duskruin by adding an item to the Incredibles List! We’ll publish the list soon for everyone to see! Thanks to a couple TownCrier subscribers for this suggestion. http://bit.ly/37Z8jmS

Sunday Night for the end of the February 2020 Duskruin, Wyrom pulled over 28 million bloodscrip out of circulation from a crowded room of bidders for 30 items at the Duskruin Shenanigans. Goat and Rovvigen worked hard to bring us live coverage. If you missed it, the TownCrier saved our spreadsheet and tally: http://bit.ly/2VeXuu7

Arena Overlord Wyrom announced that for Duskruin HESS offerings after this, the Spell Rank Enhancive will also be governed by the 2-service rule. Anything and everything sold in the High End Script Shop will always be part of this 2-service rule. No more than 2 services on the same item per run. http://bit.ly/3c27IUH
