A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Castle Starcaster - Week Nine

The walls in the halls (entry and dining) have been finished off by the addition of some simple wooden panelling. The panelling is made from balsa wood: 0.8mm thick pieces form the backing while strips a few millimetres thick and about 0.75cm wide form the panels.

The fireplace has been started, but as you can see clearly has a long way to go. The hearth and back are lined with "tiles" left over from the bedroom. Unlike the bedroom, these tiles have been given some coats of gloss to give them a more tile-like shine.

The patchwork of rugs on the floor has nothing to do with covering cravasses between tiles where the clay shrank, nor to do with obsuring the fact the floor seems to have developed a sag in the middle. Honestly. Those rugs however are going to remain in place until I find a larger, more suitable covering for the floor covering.
