Tudor Mint News:
Wohoo!! The second trilogy piece is now in some of the H Samuels stores - although it's not the piece that was expected. The Wizard Fortune Finder (Sig 21) seems to have vanished - maybe with the fortune - and instead The Dragon Fortune Finder has been released.
News is that the Wizard will be making an appearance in January.

Other News:
We spoke to the Tudor Mint after seeing 'A Christmas Tale' with a base on eBay being given away with some of the extra large studies that were being sold. Jean told us "in one of the Hampers catalogues they had been photographed with a base so the models being supplied to those customers had one. We had to order a minimum quantity of bases so have some left over. If anyone wants a base they can let us know and I am told we will send them one foc whilst we have stock."
Just mention that you heard about this through DragonsCavern.

Finally, we'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Peaceful Yuletide and thank you for visiting, and using, the DragonsCavern websites in 2006, and hope that you continue to visit throughout 2007. We look forward to more comments, emails and postings.

Changes to the site:
It's a quiet month within the websites - there is nothing new that has been added, expect to say that the aStore now lists some games and activities that you may find suitable for last minute Christmas presents! Follow the link from the start page.
However, we do have two announcements to make;

(1) If you are a :MyChart user, please be aware that you may find access is denied between 7th - 8th December. This is beyond our control, as our website hosts (1and1) are updating their PHP scripts and this may result in a brief loss of service. Please be aware that all data will be safe, and you will not lose your personal charts.
(2) There is no chat scheduled for the last Wednesday of the month, as this falls during the Christmas festivities. We will return with a scheduled chat in the New Year, but registered users can access it 24/7 if they wish.

Remember that to access to the subscribers section, use your username and password.

Last month on we were asking; Where in your home do you display your studies? The results are:

Living Room 80.00%
Dining Room 00.00%
Study/Office 06.67%
Attic/Basement 00.00%
Other room 13.33%

For December we are asking; On the larger studies do you prefer the brass or pewter nameplates?

Take part in the vote using the buttons on the main page, or in the contact or vote section. Results will be announced in the January newsletter.

If you have a prototype study, or a rare version of any item please send it to us for inclusion on the prototypes/rare pages. Use the submit form on the contact page of the website. In addition to this, the 'wanted' page of the website lists studies that we are looking for images for. If you are able to help with those, please contact us.

That's all for this month. If you have any news, websites, announcements or comments that you would like to see in the next newsletter, or if you are a trader / collector who would like to be featured in an article in a future newsletter, please contact the webmanager.

Sincerely ,
Webmanager - the unofficial Myth and Magic collection histories chart.
