Hello Everybody

Time once again for the Chaosium electronic flyer, a regular feature sent to our fans and friends around the world wherein we bring news of shiny trinkets and rumors of dark secrets from afar.

This week we find more of the awfully funny ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE on our shelves again, as well as a few other books we think quite desirable, such as THE YEAR 1000 and Michel Houellebecq’s H.P. LOVECRAFT: AGAINST THE WORLD, AGAINST LIFE. To see these books simply click the links below and our magic web sprites take you there.
ZOMBIE http://catalog.chaos...products_id=646
YEAR 1000 http://catalog.chaos...products_id=468
H.P. LOVECRAFT http://catalog.chaos...products_id=716

Our unusually clever though lazy watchdog found more DICE BAGS during a rare midnight wandering. We decided to sell them on our website, because we like them and we think you should like them too! To see these supple dice holders, simply click below.
http://catalog.chaos...lt.php?cPath=42


Curious fans need to know when our new MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY sourcebook releases. We are happy to say M.U. is expected in our hidden warehouse sometime before the end of October. We received and approved the “blue-lines”, so the book should be on the printing press within the next two weeks or so and on a truck a few days later. Blue-lines are a proof of the book created by the printer, and basically our last chance to fix any errors before the book itself goes to print. In the old days before computers, the blue-lines were printed on special paper with special blue ink, both of which degrade in light and time. In these modern times the blue-lines are simply a print-out of the book, but the name remains the same.


During Fergie’s daily commute to work he read an advance copy of MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY and has raved loudly about it ever since. Fergie rarely gets excited, except during football season and reading awesome Call of Cthulhu books, so Chaosium is confident we have another winner on our hands. If you want to preorder a copy of M.U. click the link below. When Chaosium receives M.U. from the printer all pre-orders ship. Chaosium does not ship partial orders, so other items ordered along with M.U. are held until M.U. arrives. If you want the other items faster you must place a separate order.

Speaking of football, Chaosium is buzzing with excitement over the MYTHOS FOOTBALL LEAGUE. The brand new MFL is up and running with the kickoff for the inaugural season just a few days away. Fans of American Football are invited to come by and take a look at the MYTHOS FOOTBALL LEAGUE section of our website. Even people that hate football can enjoy the league, as all teams have been tainted by the Mythos in one creepy way or another. Pick your team and root them on to glorious victory or cheer them on when all hope seems lost. To view the MFL site simply click here. Chaosium’s very own Fergie is the commissioner and driving force behind the MFL. Let Fergie know if you are also big MFL fans! fergie@chaosium.com

Hail Autumn.

As winds cool and blustery skies offer warnings of harsh weather to come, Chaosium remains warm and toasty thanks to fiery breezes and flaming clouds from unknown sources. We hope you can stay as comfortable as we are during the change of seasons.

We have not ceased our mercantile wanderings since our last contact, and we return with bags of goodies and strange things from distant and sometimes hidden lands.

For Call of Cthulhu players we offer new RAFM CALL OF CTHULHU FIGURINES. New GHOULS, a PROTO-SHOGGOTH, and other creepy things arrived the other day, and we make them available to you. Please note the quantities are limited, so first-come-first-served. We can make no promise as to how long they last. Please click here to see them.

http://catalog.chaos...products_id=765 Gnoph-Keh
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=764 Proto-Shoggoth
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=763 The Hound

A book we found in a musty book store down the street seemed quite appropriate for our website, and we now announce them to our friends and fans around the world. THE MODERN WEIRD TALE is a nice tome wherein many of the leading writers of horror and supernatural fiction since World War II are critically studied. To see more about this unique and interesting book, please click here.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=756

For your gaming pleasure a new monograph arrives in our warehouse this coming Monday. Curious or reckless persons need only to click the link below to see more about the unique GATSBY AND THE GREAT RACE monograph. Orders containing this book ship when we receive them. Please excuse this short delay, as sometimes our strange delivery man stops somewhere unknown to rest and feed on his unusual consumables.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=766

Our friends from Elder Signs Press sent a new periodical to us sometime during the night, tightly wrapped in leather of an unknown origin. Chaosium thought it unwise to read them right away, as these books are often filled with scary stories and dangerous ideas. We relented finally, and find ourselves now happy to offer THE BOOK OF DARK WISDOM # 7. Click the link below to learn more if you dare.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=758

Also arriving this Monday is the new ELDER SIGN TEE, in brand new colors. The shirt features crisp white ink on heavy-duty royal blue shirts. Click the link below to view these handsome duds!
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=767

Thanks for all your support for all these years!

Fall Follies is more like it...

Apologies to those of you receiving this newsletter more than once. We've made peace with the gremlin tribes and will attempt to send this weeks newletter again.


Greeting Fellow Humans

Far and wide our shambling merchants travel to obtain the strange and forbidden items you seek. From distant lands and lost aeons we offer these wares in hopes you find the treasures you desire. To that end we compose this message to you, our honored friends and fans.

An odd, pale Thing arrived this afternoon from the cold emptiness of space bearing a sack of colorful dice. This timely delivery refills our depleted shelves of these useful gaming aids, though we were surprised and quite frightened upon seeing the new CARCOSAN PALLID CRYSTAL dice set. To view this new Dice Set click here. Chaosium cannot take any respopnsibility if this viewing causes any unnatural effect upon you.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=769 Carcosan Pallid Crystal
http://catalog.chaos...lt.php?cPath=42 Other Dice Sets

Two new monographs for your gaming pleasure and horror arrived sometime during the night, or so our three-eyed watchman says. He never seems to sleep, though he cannot recall who, or what, brought these new adventures to us. The HALLOWEEN HORROR monograph presents the winning submissions from this year’s Halloween Adventure Contest. TWILIGHT MEMOIRS is a unique monograph, and we are confident you will find its contents interesting and particularly disturbing. To view these shiny new supplements simply click the links below.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=770 Twilight Memoirs
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=771 Halloween Horror

Chaosium is also happy to display the new MASKS OF NYARLATHOTEP edition for the Call of Cthulhu Collectible Card Game. Full of peril and suspense, this new
series may be veiwed in more detail by using the link below.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=772 Masks of Nyarlathotep CCG

To conclude our advert we wish each and every one of you thanks and appreciation for your support and attention for 30 years of Chaosium!

Best Wishes from Chaosium Inc.

Howdy Folks!

While we are still hung over from Thanksgiving feasts, we have something new to be thankful for this week. After more printer delays than we can count, the Miskatonic University sourcebook is finally on it’s way to us, to be here by week's end. It’s now available at http://www.chaosium.com

Miskatonic University Sourcebook
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=747

You can find all sorts of other Miskatonic University items on our site as well. Miskatonic University Astronomy Club T-shirts, bumper stickers, Window Decals, note pads, M.U. Dicebags, M.U. School Seal T-shirts, and more.
http://catalog.chaos...lt.php?cPath=27

We’ve also restocked some of our more popular fiction and non-fiction titles recently: Howdunit, Necronomicon files, and The Necronomicon: The Wanderings of Alhazred
http://catalog.chaos...lt.php?cPath=35

Since Christmas is just around the corner, now is a good time to start sending out your holiday cards. There is no reason to be boring about it this year. We have a limited number of Cthulhu Mythos Christmas Cards to spread some holiday fear!
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=610


Happy Holidaze!

By Ground, Space, or Air,
The Mythos Delivers Everywhere.

This is your Yithmas Shipping Edition of the Chaosium.com newsletter. We’ll break down our holiday shipping schedule and update you on a couple of new products and restocks. You can find us at the usual URL: http://www.Chaosium.com

We have a limited number of Cthulhu Christmas cards. ( http://catalog.chaos...products_id=610 )

HOLIDAY SHIPPING:
In order to get your orders before Christmas, use the guide below when choosing your shipping options.

FOR EVERYONE:
After December 20th, Chaosium will ship RUSH ORDERS ONLY. There is no shipping at all on December 26 and 31. If you’ve waited that long to buy Christmas presents you’ll just have to shop closer to home and fight throngs of mall zombies. Good luck with that.

OVERSEAS DUDES:
International customers must choose Air Shipping (or UPS WORLDWIDE) to
receive by December 25th. AIR shipping can take one week or more, so place your AIR orders by December 14th. Air orders placed after December 14 may or may not arrive before Christmas. Surface orders placed now will not arrive until mid-January. NOTE: Our free shipping orders will not arrive by Christmas!

USA CUSTOMERS:
UPS Ground orders must be received by December 14th to ensure delivery by XMAS. UPS Ground orders placed after that date will ship as soon as we can, but may or may not arrive before XMAS.
UPS 3 Day orders must be placed by December 20th.
UPS 2 DAY ORDERS must be placed by December 21st.
UPS NEXT DAY orders must be placed by December 22nd.

US Postal Service orders are harder to predict. If you choose USPS, you're gambling.

Canada Customers should probably order before December 15th and use UPS. Earlier is better!

FREE SHIPPING, PART TWO
Remember: We do offer free shipping on cyclopean orders.

NEW STUFF
Lo and behold, we received a supply of some cool audiobooks based on both Lovecrafts and Moorcock's work. The first two each present two of H. P. Lovecrafts most popular and evocative stories. The second presents the entirety of the first novel, Elric of Melnibone. These are very well done, and are an enjoyable way to experience these stories, especially if you spend much time in the car.
THE DUNWICH HORROR/THE CALL OF CTHULHU: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=780
THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH/DAGON: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=778
ELRIC OF MELNIBONE: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=780

We are very pleased and excited by the sales of the new MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY supplement. It really is a great addition to the cannon. http://catalog.chaos...products_id=747

FREE PREVIEW: every order until the end of the year will receive a free preview scenario for our upcoming TATTERS OF THE KING campaign. This one book has excited our editors more than any since BEYOND THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS.
TATTERS OF THE KING: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=773

Happy Holidaze!

and new intern Danyela (pity the poor lass).

Happy Holidays from Chaosium
http://www.chaosium.com

Important update: Due to staff vacations and the looming holiday, only rush orders will be shipped out for the rest of the month. Our California office will have one person in it, upon occasion, for the rest of the year. So if you want your order to ship out before January 3rd, choose a fast shipping method. "Normal" orders will be shipped out the first week on January when Fergie is once again in the office.

If you want your order before Christmas, you’ll need to choose UPS second day or overnight shipping for the rest of this week.

Our Monograph and T-shirt sale ends on December 31st. If you are a last minute sort of person, the last minute is quickly approaching!

We have three new CD’s to tempt you with. Two are audiobooks ( The Dunwich Horror/The Call of Cthulhu audio book and The Shadow Over Innsmouth/Dagon audiobook ) as well as The Horror on the Orient Express music CD.

You can find all three on our front page, or in our media madness section:
http://catalog.chaos...lt.php?cPath=46


We hope that all of you have a fantastic holiday. We look forward to serving you through out the New Year.

Cheers!

Charlie, Dustin, Fergie, and Lynn.

Greetings Friends (and others),

The year now finds us bounding ahead, releasing a new supplement for CALL OF CTHULHU and getting our first-quarter books ready for printing. While we dare not say too much just yet (they are listening), one of the upcoming gems bears a startling resemblance to an item we mused about years ago.

We have also been digging through the musty vault and met some old friends.

THE KING IN TATTERS
Chaosium's latest, stellar adventure for CALL OF CTHULHU is in the bindery and will be here about Tuesday <insert bad thought about printer>. Everyone who has read this manuscript feels it is one of the best campaigns we have produced in a number of years. You can find further details at this link:
TOTK: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=773

NEW MONOGRAPH
From a green and pleasant land comes a new monograph exploring Michael Moorcock's Tragic Millennium earth. HAWKMOON is a new visit to this strange world for the STORMBRINGER roleplaying game.
HAWKMOON MONOGRAPH: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=802

DUNWICH DAIRY & CHEAP TEES
We've found that certain ichors adhere to clothing so well that they serve as tee-shirt inks. Here is a new design promoting DUNWICH DAIRY: NECTAR FROM THE STARS. That ain't no ordinary heiffer used as their logo.

And while on the subject of tee-shirts. . . due to cheap mythos labor we have just lowered our prices on all shirts and are expanding the range of sizes we offer. In the coming months we will also experiment with a variety of designs, styles, and colors. All one-color shirts in sizes S-XL are now only $15; XXL and up are $2 more. All multi-color shirts S-XL are $18; XXL+ are $2 more. We hope to have fun with this.
DUNWICH DAIRY TEE: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=792
TEES: http://www.chaosium....t.x=0&Input.y=0

MASKS OF NYARLATHOTEP & ESCAPE FROM INNSMOUTH
Well, we dug further into the vault the other day and found some good copies of two favorites. These are limited quantities, so get yours soon!
MASKS OF NYARLATHOTEP: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=119
ESCAPE FROM DUNWICH: http://catalog.chaos...?products_id=37

ELDER SIGNS PRESS RESTOCK
A box of cyclopean proportions just arose outside our door, filled with goodness from Elder Signs press, including fresh supplies of the BOOK OF DARK WISDOM and their many fine fiction titles.
ESP: http://catalog.chaos...facturers_id=58

BOOK OF DARK WISDOM #8
. . . and on a related note we also now have the latest edition of the BOOK OF DARK WISDOM.
BDW#8: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=804

CALL OF CTHULHU CARD GAME
We recently received a shipment of the ELDRITCH EDITION PREMIUM STARTER SET which includes a deluxe rules booklet featuring updated and easy-to-read rules, a 10-card story deck, two 50-card fixed decks, and six new Domain cards. Two players can begin playing right out of the box.

Greetings Survivors of Ithaqua's Wrath,
As the world seeks to rise (so to speak) from the pacific slumber of deeper winter, we have a couple new items and world of a long-lost tome.

TERRORS
Noted author Richard Lupoff has concocted an anthology of tales published by our friends at Elder Signs Press. TERRORS features numerous stories written in homage to dark fantasy greats and paying tribute to an older age of storytelling.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=805

CTHULHU
Pegasus Spiele has also released a new edition of the WORLDS OF CTHULHU magazine. This is a very attractive work, filled with scenarios and art supporting the various worlds presented by CALL OF CTHULHU and its supplements.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=814

SECRETS
We try to refrain from speculation in this newsletter, but restraint has never been our strong suit. This small note informs inquiring minds out there that at long last the cursed book known as SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO is at the printer. Finally. For real.
http://catalog.chaos...products_id=813

Hola Broodmates,

Here is our GAMA edition of the newsletter. GAMA is the Game Manufacturers' Association, and each year there is a show in Las Vegas. We'll be there, chatting with the distributors and forward-thinking stores.

SAN FRANCISCO SECRET NEWS
Among the topics at GAMA will be the imminent release of SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO. We are very happy that though like good sourdough, this book took some time to rise, it have proved quite tasty and ofers yummy mythos adventure. The printer has the files and we will have proofs in a day or two. We are now allowing you to pre-order this book. Remember, items you order with SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO will ship once the book arrives in our warehouse.
SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO PREORDER: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=813

MORE PENDING TREASURE
We've managed to order new product from our secret Arkham distributor. In particular we will have copies of the MISKATONIC EXHIBIT MUSEUM tee shirt, celebrating the opening of the Local Mysteries Exhibit. We also will have copies of the CTHULHU COFFEE tee, that special blend that will awaken your inner monster.
EXHIBIT MUSEUM: http://catalog.chaos...&sort=1a&page=4
CTHULHU COFFEE: http://catalog.chaos...lt.php?cPath=33

FROM THE VAULT
We were digging around and came across two tantalizing tidbits. The first is the ARKHAM SANITARIUM FORM PACK, a collection of clever and useful forms you can use during your CALL OF CTHULHU game sessions. The second is a 30-p[age adventure book titled THE LOST TEMPLE OF YIG. Both are part of the D20 GAMEMASTER'S SCREEN but are fully compatible and useful with classic CALL OF CTHULHU.
SANITARIUM FORMS: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=817
LOST TEMPLE OF YIG: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=818

We hope that pending Spring find you well.

Greetings Earthlings

The longest leg of my dangerous space journey is complete and I find myself on Earth resting from my strenuous voyage. Searching friendly markets and shunned bazaars amongst the various stars and planets, I return exhausted to your humble globe with my many arms full of surprises.

A box of a wonderful Call of Cthulhu supplement was found hidden in a cave on Yuggoth and I am happy to make Day of the Beast available to you all once again. Please click here to learn more about this exciting and dangerous adventure. http://catalog.chaos...?products_id=39

I am excited to bring news of new clothing you may enjoy. Innsmouth High is sending some tee shirts and hoodies to us. They are not here yet, but you can still place your order for these swell threads. Rumors of direct purchase from Innsmouth High School are untrue. The only place these treasures may be found is the Chaosium website. To see these attractive and complimentary garments, please click here.
http://www.chaosium....keywords=hoodie
http://www.chaosium....smouth high tee

From an odd metal merchant near The Screaming Planet I bring figurines. These metallic figurines are shockingly realistic, but I do not believe the stories of their creation. Some say these figurines are simply humans or terrifying monsters shrunken to a small size and coated with an unknown lead-like substance. Please click here if you wish to view for yourselves these figurines.
http://www.chaosium....p?keywords=rafm

And last but not least, for the inquisitive and reckless I offer from my wares shopworn copies of the famed Encyclopedia Cthulhiana. I used his fine tome to identify many of the strange and monstrous beings encountered on my wanderings. What became of the individuals who held these books before I acquired them I cannot say, though I hope their end was swift. Please click here is you wish to see more of this informative compendium.

Fergie

Greetings Land-Dwellers,
When we first contemplated printing the SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO book, we thought we only jokingly suggested to our printer to send it by covered wagon. After almost two weeks of travel, this long-rumored book now sits in our warehouse. Copies are flying to retail store shelves are your read this.
SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=813

As a companion to this long-promised book. we offer a tome titled THE BARBARY COAST. Here the author provides an informal history of the under-belly of San Francisco. The author, Herbert Asbury, also wrote THE GANGS OF NEW YORK and THE GANGS OF CHICAGO, also offered here.

Greetings Friends,
Chaosium is glad to once again send to you our newsletter, full of links to strange items and tomes of frightful knowledge. Some of these objects were acquired from strange merchants and mysterious strangers, while others were left on our crumbling porch as gifts by someone or something unknown. Please take the time to view some of these unique and inspiring artifacts, if you dare.

COMPANY NEWS
If you have not seen our newest Call of Cthulhu role playing book THE SECRETS OF SAN FRANCISCO, please click here and learn more. We also sent our next fiction title, ARKHAM TALES, to the printer for release by the end of the month.

Greetings,

Over this past weekend specialized mythos minions swarmed our site in an effort to make non-euclidian improvements to our Server of the Outer Gods. For a brief time components of Chaosium's secret plan to breed better gamers, genetically predisposed to play Basic Role Playing and other Chaosium games.

The changes have been made and the site is now up and running once again.

By the way, we did just recieve a great restock from Audio Realms. They are creating a line of books on CD, specializing in Lovecraft and Moorcock. We'll get others as they are offered.

Sincerely,
The Wise Minion

Hail and Farewell,

Our server issues seem to have settled, and the extra-dimensional memory chips seem to be working fine.

Charlie just returned from an expedition to BookExpo in D.C., where he explored new ways of spreading Chaosium goodness. He turns right around to head for Tentacles, a wonderful show held in Castle Stahleck, a 12th century castle built along the Rheine by order of the archbishop of Cologne. They asked if he would do the painful job of sitting in the castle courtyard and barbecue for the attendees, while watching barges ply the waters of the Rheine. He dutifully agreed to suffer through that chore. Just for a bit of fun, take a look here:

CTHULHU 25th ANNIVERSARY
The old shoggoth has been busy (at least part of him, anyway), and he has . . . extruded a new tee-shirt. This celebrates the 25 years since the release of CALL OF CTHULHU, and is printed in white ink on a high-quality dark green tee.

IN-STOCK
We also received a restock of the CHAOSIUM 30th ANNI. DICEBAG from our friends at Starwind Design. We also picked up a few copies of the complete novels of HAMMETT: THE COMPLETE NOVELS--great reading to get you in the mood of the period.

Back Again,

A BRIEF NOTE: Our new server just passed through several larval stages of growth. We noticed and repaired a few abnormalities--but isn't that always the case with mythos work?

No matter how interesting or how much fun they might be, doing back-to-back shows is always exhausting. Charlie just returned from, first, a trip to to BookExpo in D.C. exploring the vagaries of the U.S. book business, then to Tentacles (held an hour outside of Frankfurt, Germany). He did indeed barbecue in the courtyard of the castle, about 15-hours-worth in all. The list of meat cooked is quite impressive, and will be covered in his notes on the show in the coming days.

A COUPLE OF NEW THINGS
Copies of the latest DARK WISDOM magazine came in while he was away at Tentacles. Just this morning a courier byakhee dropped off a parcel containing the newly minted WORLDS OF CTHULHU #4. Both are available now, and offer the best in dark fiction, and support for the CALL OF CTHULHU rolesplaying game.

The Solstice is Upon Us,
A favoured time for some mythos deities and a few sun-loving types. This day seems also favored for us here at Chaosium, for we have much good news to bestow.

TALL TALES
We have news for a number of fiction titles, both new and cherished. The printer for ARKHAM TALES has been prodded from slumber, and that book should be here is ten to twelve days. We also have new supplies of five titles from our CALL OF CTHULHU FICTION line available shortly. We are quite excited to bring such a bounty to you, links for all can be found below. We have given them July 7th arrival dates, but some will be here sooner.

TEE SHIRT FRENZY
The shoggoth was busy while Charlie was away, and we have new shirts on hand. First is a re-design of the INNSMOUTH EMS shirt (to the tastes of a close advisor). Then we have a MARTIN'S BEACH LIFEGUARD TEE, a new design for summer. We also thought we would dabble in tote bags, and the first of these is the ORNE LIBRARY TOTE. The tee shirt links go to the XL size; other sizes are also offered.

'Tis the time of Cthugha,
and the heat lays sultry across the land. No better time than to dust off those mouldy tomes and partake of forbidden knowledge.

NEW BOOK
At last we received the shipment of ARKHAM TALES, which shipped to us by way of Los Angeles. While that den of mythos depravity is in the same state, it is 500 miles distant. When they said the book was "out for delivery" we learned they meant that it was on the truck from L.A.
ARKHAM TALES: http://catalog.chaos...products_id=846

NEW MONOGRAPHS
We have two new monographs available. THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE WITCHING HOUR is submitted by a new contributor, and takes place in 1941. STRANGE TALES OF DREAD & WONDER collects the winning adventures from the first CALL OF CTHULHU ADVENTURE CONTEST. It is the largest monograph we've offered. It presents scenarios from a variety of eras, including Cthulhu Dark Ages.

NEW SHIRT
We receive many suggestions for shirts, some of which hurt our brains. Here is a new offering to satisfy one of the more common requests. We just received a shipment from the M.U. School of Law. The shirt below is size XL; other sizes are also available.

The Great One is Sated.

We apparently made the appropriate sacrifices, and the last newsletter seems to have been successfully sent. Old Nyarlathotep is happy with us again.

Much of our work of late has been to look for authors and books for the coming year. Charlie recently attended the Continuum convention, held at the University of Leicester every two years. Trips to Castle Stahleck and to Leicester are fun, of course, but they are also important breeding grounds for new works to everntully be published by Chaosium.

We are now off to Gen Con. This is really our biggest chance to present to the public in a face-to-face forum the titles and shirts and monographs that have been released over the past year. Gen Con is also a time when many deals are either begun or finalized, friends are met again, and new possibilities are explored.

A NEW MONOGRAPH
The HAWKMOON monograph proved particularly popular at Continuum. As the gods would have it, no sooner had we released that title when OLD HROLMAR should appear on our doorstep (electronically speaking). This is a well-crafted city guide to one of the more renowned cities of Vilmir.
