First and foremost, apologies for the very late newsletter. The turn of the year has passed in a daze and we’re only now getting back onto the saddle(not SR though, she’s born in the saddle and everything). The December Newsletter is therefore slightly shorter and to the point than usual and to execute it properly, we are using the ever so effective BULLET POINT method! So, enjoy <3
OOC(Out of Character) News:
• The following people joined Winds of Fury in December, 2010: Spool, Turtle, Renna, Aello, cada, altair. Please be welcome and enjoy yourselves!
• Biggest Out of Character news and event were the holidays, naturally. We hope everyone had a great Christmas/Hanukkah/whatnot and a very pleasant New Year’s Eve.
• Connected to the previous point is our gifts topic that was open most of December. Thank you, everyone, for posting there and coming up with the most incredible and wonderfully creative presents for both players and characters! The topic itself is here and since it was such a hit, we are going to open a Gifts corner topic that will stay around all the year through for people to post their creative little gifts in.
• We had a Scene of the Month voting. It was for the 11th Month’s scenes but since the voting went into December, we can only announce the winner now. The winner of the Scene of the 11th Month is the scene "What Have I Gotten Myself Into" with the Liberated Holder Maere and the teddybear Weyrlingmaster M'vari. Read it here.
• Last but not least, HAPPY NEW YEAR WoFers! It’s great to have you, hopefully we’ll see many turn of years in the future.
IC(In Character) News:
• In December, the following characters were created: K'mos, L'orm, Shanoa, Renna Myari, Itamar, Catas and S'tola. Have fun playing them.
• Plot-wise, the following events had more of an influence than the great many more personal scenes that were played out.
• The healers finally discovered that the source of the illness came from contaminated water supply. How the 'poison' got into the well remains unknown.
• Enkalan Headwoman Ava succumbed to the sickness in the beginning of the 12th Month. Even though the reason for the illness was found out by then, it was too late for her. The new Headwoman is Marlena(Adoptable NPC).
• There was a fire in the Weyrling Barracks... again. Weyrlingmaster slightly balder once more.
• After the conclusion of the sickness plot, the Istan Wing rumoured to be transferring to Enkala Weyr, finally arrived and was divided into different Wings. This came along with the re-shuffling and changing of every Wing there was in Enkala.
• A restriction for hunting in the Weyr's feeding grounds and from the sick herdbeasts was placed upon all Wings due to the herdbeasts still containing the poison.
• Turn's End came with a very small celebration. All things considered that was fitting.
See you next time, same dragon channel, same dragon time! And remember - you make this news, not us. This all has happened thanks to you so keep playing!
Nya and SR.
