UP : Moonglow (Lake Superior)
Another presentation in the Moonglow Lycaeums
lecture series was completed earlier this week. This past Tuesday evening, the
Lycaeums guest speaker was Lady Zanne, a well-respected citizen of the Lake Superior
shard and a Grandmaster Blacksmith. Zannes Grandmaster status came after nearly
seven months of hard work and literally thousands of ingots of hand-crafted armour and
Zannes lecture covered the basics of becoming a successful smith.
She also answered the questions she says people most often ask her. After the lecture,
Zanne made herself available to the audience for an impromptu question and answer session
that lasted well into the evening.
Zanne says she was impressed by the turnout for the event and would
love to host the lecture again for those who might have missed it in a few weeks.
Look for good things to be coming from the Lycaeum, said
Seer Maverick, the organizer of many Lycaeum events and lectures, We really want the
Lycaeum to start being used as it was intended, as a place where all of the folk of
Britannia can journey for intellectual stimulation and general knowledge of the world
around them. The lecture series seems to be proving to us that there are people thirsty
for knowledge out there, and we aim to do the best we can to quench that thirst. We also
realize that the Lycaeum could be a good place for those new to Britannia to learn the
basic survival skills for our land, and we want to work at passing that knowledge to those
who need it.
Look for upcoming discussions from some of Britannias longtime
tradespeople and knowledgeable citizens. Keep reading the Town Cryer for advance
notice of when the next lectures are to be held.
