Daes Dae'mar - June 2011 Newsletter

Recommended Posts



Welcome to the WT's monthly newsletter!!


What I have found this month is that with the increase of cold temperatures, which results in cold fingers.... laziness exponentially increases. I am looking forward to Summer already :sad:




PS. Let us know if you want to contribute to our Newsletter, either as a writer, information gatherer or just as someone to keep the rest of me entertained! >.> Well PM me if you're interested and I'll get you hooked up. We have all sorts of wonderful things :wink:

I'm always proud of my staff, but this month has been special. Several of them were having a tough time IRL or were on LoA, and struggled to get to their reports. The others, from other Ajah Heads to the Master at Arms to the Sitters, rallied round and helped out. This, to me, is true White Tower / Warder spirit, and it just about brings tears to my eyes. Love my staff!!
