Erollisi Day is just around the corner, and I've taken a different sort of perspective on the holiday in the mini-story leading into my E-Day crafting & housing preview.  Check it out here!

In the picture I see, what LOOKS to be, a plate of cupcakes(?) but I didn't see that listed on the craftables to make?

Hmmm it is on the recipe scroll, I think Niami just forgot to list it on her book but that is one of the items!

Whoops!  I missed them in the book shot, but I did have screenies of them ready to roll (including a max enlarge shot using the tried and true "halfling" sizing scale.  ;D)  The cupcakes in all their sugary glory have been added to the page.  Thanks for the catch!  I swear that dark elf was just trying to cut down on my sugar consumption!  ;D

Heh, the original book is on Test. In between distractions that mean it gets put on hold for a month here, a month there, I've been working on a Library over on Test that will house books of all the little mini-stories I've been writing for the site over the years.  Some year, it may be ready for folks to tour ... maybe!

"See that high elf over there, smiling as they reread a note that they received from their beloved?  ZOTTT. It's my love note now, you sappy fool!  And I don't even want it for the romantic message that is on it. I want to craft something from it, that I can gloat over every time I look at it, and say 'Yep! I beat up a snot elf to get that!'"

.... suddenly I'm feeling VERY inspired by the spirit of this holiday.    Great write-up as always!

I think Mum is working too hard. She let Trip write about Erollisi Day???

My alt Oogleblat is also somewhat concerned that the 'Oggleblatt' mentioned in the story might be an unfortunate reference to him. Miss Triptych, if the room looks dark, there may be an Ogre looming over you.....

Well, at least it was only the dark elf writing about it, not the lovesick ogress or the Bertoxx-loving necro, Therendil.  The name similarity was accidental, or a weird message from her subconscious.  She was just trying to come up with something that would be decidedly ogrish-sounding.  Just as a precaution, however, she feels it necessary to warn said Ogre that she tends to allow various fire and ice elementals to roam loose in her home as a deterrent towards salesmen and others seeking to disturb her studies.   SMILEY

It wasn't me! Nonono, it wasn't ! I like feeding fat halflings to my iksar buddies you know, can't have them on a sugar-free diet!

Thanks for the great preview!

Domino? You look great on the patcher SMILEY

Well, if you say it was accidental, I'll believe you. And I do recall how hard you giggled when you heard the name the first time. SMILEY I can easily believe that he left a scar favorable impression on your mind.

And you are quite right that things might have come out more interesting if one of the others had written the piece. Perhaps next year....
