1. Elanthian Events:

FIRST FRIDAYS FESTIVAL OF LEARNING!
The Festival of Learning will be hosted by the House of the Argent Aspis
on the first Friday of every month at 10 PM EST.  Hunts, games, stories
and opportunities to learn more about Elanthia and its history are open to
everyone!  Join us for the next festival on Friday, February 4th at the
House Argent Aspis, located at the far southeast end of Wehnimer's Landing.

SORCERER ROUNDTABLE
Please join the Order of Lorekeepers for an open discussion on all things
pertaining to sorcerers.  The discussion will take place the first Sunday
of every month.  The next roundtable is scheduled for Sunday, February 6th
at 9:00 PM EST on top of the West Tower in Wehnimer's Landing.

COVEN GALA!
The Coven Shoppe Mistresses, on behalf of Moonstone Abbey, are proud to
announce their third Semi-Annual Gala! Join them in Town Square, NE
Wehnimer's Landing on Saturday, February 5th at 8PM EST. Sister Cassioppia
will tell a story with her own creative flair, and if you guess the moral
at the end you could walk away with a note worth 100k! After the story,
check out the superior Shoppe wares, including ruby amulets, blue
crystals, imbedded items, and full bundles of herbs! The Mistresses will
also be casting free spells, weapon blesses and edges. We look forward to

CHARACTER PORTRAITS!
They're going fast, so sign up now for your February Portraits! Let our
team of professional artists create a unique portrait of your character
for all to see inside the game. Simply submit a description of your
character and an artist will work from your own words! For more
information and to purchase tickets, check out the Character Portrait link
on the GemStone III website at http://gemstone.net.

ELANTHIAN TIMES RETURNS!
A new media consortium has bought the Elanthian Times, the official
webzine of GemStone III.  Due to the chaos of transferring ownership, the
archives were turned over to marauding Krolvin pirates.  Please help us
put forth the best issue yet by sending your submissions, anything from
role-playing narratives to poetry and maps, to ElanthianTimes@aol.com.
Look for a new issue coming soon!
