Canadians! Pay Attention! Canada Post is offering free shipping Tuesdays in October. That means I can ship a small packet anywhere within Canada for free as long as I process it online on one of the next three Tuesdays: 17th, 24th or 31st.

Just saying…

You have some interesting stuff, yet the blog is difficult to navigate as a webstore. What is currently available, i.e. no longer "coming soon"? Where would I find the vignette with the drummer and 3 dancers?

How do you know there is a drummer and three dancers if you haven't found it? Through the blog posts, I gather?*

There are links in a box in the right-hand sidebar (labelled: Shop). Each link takes one to a different page, each page being a separate category.

Of course, some things fit in more than one category.

The drummer and dancers are part of the Lorun tribal range.

Which are either part of the "Palace of Ever-Glorious War", being enemies of the Petal Throne, or in the "Palace of Foreign Lands", being foreigners (and barbarians to boot!)

* I suppose I could (should?) go back through all my blog posts to add links as to where one could find them in the shop.

Just checked, and they are under the "Palace of Ever-Glorious War", being allies of the Baron Ald.


One could argue the tribals might better be categorized under the "Palace of Foreign Persons" as the wild tribes likely don't give a fig for either Yan Kor or Tsolyanu.

Unfortunately, blogger has a page limit (of 10) so I can't give them a separate page.

Hope this helps.

Hey Skeptic and Dave,

Send me your addresses (to: green27 AT sympatico DOT ca) and I'll try out this free shipping thing by sending you some samples.

This is assuming that Canada Post isn't scamming me and its not just restricted to a single parcel a week or some similar nonsense.

That goes for any other Canadians or anybody else living in Canada. Send me your info and I'll send you a sample.

Note that this is Canada Post's promotion so to a certain extent I have to play by their rules!

Questions: email me!

Best Regards,

Isn't it time for them to stike. Again.

And it seems it is limited to one free parcel per week! So, I guess that means first come first serve!
