White Plume Mountain has tentatively been identified as the “feathered mound” mentioned in the poem. Sages further agree that the “K” signature refers to Keraptis, but most insist that the writer must be an imposter. After all, who can believe the note really comes from the magician of legend after 1,300 years? The former owners of Wave, Whelm, and Blackrazor have each outfitted a group of intrepid heroes to take up the challenge. The nearest village, Yellowreach, lies about 5 miles from the mountain long the Yellow Flow River (so named for the sulfurous deposits along its banks). The village can supply the party’s basic needs—rations, lantern oil, and inexpensive potions and scrolls—between forays, but any item costing more than 200 gp is unavailable here. The villagers know of the mountain and its surroundings, as well as details of the only entrance (see Beginning the Adventure, below), but they generally give the area a wide berth. Any adventurers bold enough to set out for White Plume Mountain are regarded as either very brave or very foolhardy. Upon clearing one of the three wings of the mythical dungeon and recovering the War hammer Whelm the adventures stand before great flanged doors from which humming sounds can be felt. What will they do next?

Search ye far or search ye near, You’ll find no trace of the three Unless you follow instructions clear, For the weapons abide with me. North past forest, farm, and furrow You must go to reach the feathered mound. Then down away from the sun you’ll burrow— Forget life, forget light, and forget sound. To rescue Wave, you must do battle With the Beast in the Boiling Bubble. Crost cavern vast, where chain-links rattle Lies Whelm, past waterspouts double.
Blackrazor yet remains to be won Underneath inverted ziggurat. That garnered, think not that you’re done, For now you’ll find you are caught. I care not, former owners brave, What heroes you seek to hire. Though mighty, each shall be my slave Or vanish into the fire.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Several weeks ago, three highly valued magic weapons with the cryptic names Wave, Whelm and Blackrazor disappeared from the vaults of their owners in the midst of the city of Greyhawk. Rewards were posted, servants were hanged, and even the sanctuary of the Thieves’ Guild was violated in the frantic search for the priceless arms, but not a single clue turned up until the weapons’ former owners (all wealthy collectors) each received a copy of a strange note:

MINIATURE DEMO TABLE - Supervised by Master Painter, Kenneth Taba.
Bring down your paints, miniatures, models, and brushes. The table will be open all day for any who wish to paint, build, or watch. Here is a chance to ask questions and share tips with other painters and builders. Whether you are just beginning and would like to learn more, or you are a veteran who would like to exchange ideas, there will be something for all.
MINIATUE PAINTING CREATIVITY SHOW CASE
Bring in your most creative work.
No entry fee.
This is a chance to show case your creativity. Show off those pieces that have inspired you to do something different, conversions and/or creative paint schemes.
This isn't a regular painting competition. We will be judging on creativity. So, mastery of painting technique will be of little importance. A very creative conversion or creative and appealing paint scheme that is somewhat messy or uneven will beat a perfectly painted, perfectly shaded/highlighted figure with a typical paint scheme.
Prizes will be awarded but not for the normal 1st, 2nd or 3rd places. Nor will the prizes be the normal contest prizes. Something different is being planned for prizes. . . could be kittens, could be rocks. It won’t be gold bullion or a brand new car. It’ll be smaller than a bread box but worth more than a penny.
Prizes will be awarded for:
•Creative, unique and well executed conversions. Painted not necessary.
•Creative and appealing paint scheme. The entry will not be judged on mold lines, basing etc. Basically all the stuff we normally
cut people from competition for would not matter. (example, A very creative and appealing paint scheme could easily beat a
perfectly painted Ultra Marine)
•Additionally there will be a large figure/monster/vehicle category. Any vehicle or any figure that normally uses a base of 40mm
or larger. They haven't had much love lately.
3 judging categories
Entries do not have to be something recent, but they do need to be something you’ve done yourself.
