My Old and Dear Friend Elminster,
We have an unfolding problem here, involving mutable, dangerous, and magical puddings. “Butterscotch,” I’m told, though I know not that term. Edible table concoctions rather than the monsters sometimes known as puddings.
It seems these desserts confer a curse on those who partake of them that encourages wild behavior, laxity of memory, and muddled reasoning—in short, burgeoning incompetence. There are even claims that some of the puddings have spoken aloud.
Yes, I’m implying pudding sentience. With all of its sinister implications.
I assure you that this is less hilarious here, where it’s happening, than it no doubt seems to you, safely in Shadowdale.
Though it pains me to do so, I hereby invoke the promise of prompt and sufficient aid you once gave Kitten.
Trusting you will rise to the challenge, I remain your obedient servant in matters involving availability of the Art for all, free from barriers.
(Or as you once called me, “Little Miss Punishment-Richly-Deserved.” No, Old Mage, I haven’t forgotten.)
And so begins the letter prefacing last year’s one-of-a-kind storytelling event: Spin a Yarn, with Ed Greenwood! We hope you can attend this year’s Spin a Yarn, scheduled to take place at Gen Con Indy on Friday, August 6th between 2-4PM. You can find additional information on our Gen Con page—and we look forward to seeing you there!
