Birch Beer

Food & Beverages: I tried birch beer for the first time last night. It was pretty interesting. The taste is very similar to root beer, though not quite as sweet. However, the drink is very red. I don't know if this was from dyes or natural birch bark coloring. Anyway, it was kind of creepy, because the carbonation foam was decidedly pink--more pink than I liked. (g) Anyway, not a bad beverage.

Gaming: A huge black dragon with red markings kept flying over our party last night. It killed an assassin who was traveling with us, and then it kept doing fly-overs. We're not sure what this means, but the DM has warned our party that black dragons are EVIL, so we're not comfortable with this situation. We are up in the El-Arashi lands now, having departed Lacutta, and we're frankly happy to be there, as Lacutta is full of slavers, thugees, and other unpleasant folks.

A Novel in 90 Days

If you have a book project you want to work on, check out novel_in_90. It offers a saner work schedule than NaNoWriMo does.

I am now faced with having to dcide which story to work on among these:

  • Dakmir - Mmm...Maybe. It's the dark fantasy. I still do not feel comfortable writing it.
  • The Curse of Avriet - Possibly.
  • Boy from the Sea - Doubtful, as I think I need to make radical changes in it.
  • Vendetta - Quite possible.
  • The Hangman's Noose - SPH folks--This is the story that the Gregory family came from.

Edit: Looks like it's going to be Vendetta.
