    • We welcome Art, and we are pleased to host his fanciful story, "Danger Runs in Our Family". We hope you enjoy it.
    • I’ve been debating for a while on how to ask this question, as it is the same question, but to two different people, Jamon, and Lacate.   i know that your situations are different, but you both share something, and I am wondering how you view this.  Jamon, you were of the merchant class before you were captured, and turned into a slave.  Lacate, you were high merchant, before you willingly turned yourself over to indentured servitude.     So my question becomes, has your time spent in service to others changed your opinion on those who are of a lower class than you were?     Also, Jamon.... I know you are now free, but what advise would you give others, including Lacate, who find themselves in a situation much like you did?    
    • I think the students have moved past their learning experience and have reached a point where they are considered equals amongst the practitioners. Each person, regardless of species or skill, is being asked to contribute what they have to give. Whether or not it's enough remains to be seen. -MM
    • Multi, The Hands on Training that the Students are getting is really putting their learned knowledge to the test , Throw in a Few FBI Agents and some Druids too to this crazy mix that I cannot get enough of ! . Thank you again for sharing all your stories with us , .      Cheers, .              John Celestre
