Don't worry, the quiz goblins could hurt you, but won't. Probably.
❗ Announcements ❗
❓ Tabletop Quiz!
We have the quiz this Friday from 6 till 9! Brush up on your newsletter lore, because I'm running a round. Entry and participation and everything is free, but if you're feeling generous you can yeet £1.50 towards our Mermaids fundraiser. There's no need to find a team beforehand, it'll all be organised on the Quiz Discord, and rounds will be streamed on our twitch channel.
📻 Tabletop Radio!
It's still this weekend, in case you've missed the past few weeks of me banging on about it! Come watch and donate to help raise funds for Mermaids, and watch us play games, make Finnbar suffer through dubious food, and brace yourself for the most revelatory 12 minutes a human body is capable of experiencing and surviving as I give a TED talk titled "Everything you were never meant to know about Centaurs"! It'll be super cool!

💭 What happened last week? 💭
In Aces High, someone managed a perfect run by pioneering the "just roll good dice easy" strategy, rolling two attacks with 4 dice each, getting 4 hits with both of them, and killing whatever unfortunate soul was on the other end. Sources are calling this "pretty impressive but also kind of jammy luck."
In Gartic Phone, all things tend to Among Us. Despite the best efforts of our valiant heroes, and Jon's very clear instructions, Alex the corrupter worked their foul arts upon the image description text box, and bought to Reylynn the gift of Amogus.
Extra Bonus End Bit
Today's magical items were cohered from the void in the middle of a Twilight 2000 session.
The Sigil of the Void Horse. Made in honour of the third most powerful mascot nominee, All Horses, the sigil of the void horse allows the user to summon a forbidden and all powerful creature. The Void Horse is an apocalyptic being of unimaginable power, which it wields solely for the purpose of carrying people from place to place just slightly faster than regular horses, then ceasing to exist at any point when it's not travelling, to commit whatever crimes a horse does in the void. Occasional evidence of these crimes may appear, but always with some degree of plausible deniability.
Bone Putty! You got a necromancer friend in need of a birthday present? Ever heard about some prehistoric beast you really want to summon, but you can't afford to hire paleontologists to help you dig? Want to create beasts the likes of which nobody before has comprehended? Try Bone Putty! Made from reforged bones and necromantic will, Bone Putty can be shaped into any form you desire, then reanimated as though it were a corpse, at which point it will harden into a fully usable shambling minion.
Wash your hands, stay inside, and come play some games with us (online) 💛
