Remember, remember the fifth of November...

...gunpowder, treason and plot;
I know no reason
why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot !

As most of you know 408 years ago some traitors around Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the British parliament, King James I., his family and the whole House of Lords. Fortunately they didn't suceed because their plot was discovered by Thomas Knyvet. Later the traitors were brought to trial and sentenced to death.

HAPPY BONFIRE NIGHT EVERYONE !


Besides that historical note there some wargaming remarks to make:
Firstly I'm working on the report about Crisis and hoping to have it online tomorrow morning.

Secondly the registration period for the 50K raffles ended last sunday. I'll have the lots prepared tommorrow and have my daughter draw the lucky winners then. They'll be announced by the ending of this week.

Thirdly there is a raffle I want to promote here. Andrew "Loki" Saunders of Loki's Great Hall is celebrating his 200th follower and giving away a nicely painted Saga miniature. You could register until this evening if you want to test you luck:

Congrats Andrew, it's always a pleasure to visit your great hall !

  1. Yes, we British revel in the celebration of some strange traditions. Nowadays Mr Fawkes would probably receive tremendous public support - though maybe not for blowing up the Royals . . .

  2. ...and also known as Guido Fawkes!

  3. Guido for him. Not now as popular, methinks, as Halloween and the import of ticking and/or treatment.
