Thank You to Our Newest Patron – The Hearth of Britannia!

It’s always a party when I get a new Patron, but even more so when it is someone as prestigious as the Hearth of Britannia!

The Hearth of Brittania is an active and in my opinion at least, a major community leader in both the Ultima and the Shroud of the Avatar game communities.

Rustic Dragon of the Heath of Britannia himself has been a developer for Shroud of the Avatar, hired by making his mark in the community and impressing the developers with his work. A recipient of a Royal warrant and his famous “cabinet of Virtues” was included in the game, as was The Hearth of Britannia itself!

He also runs regular Google Hangouts as an open forum for discussion for the Ultima Dragons and guests. A place where one of the mottos are “You will always have a home with the Hearth.” As a member of the Ultima Dragons myself, it’s a home that means a lot to me and is very welcoming to new people.

Also on Patreon themselves, engaged in several projects including the development of a cookbook based on the foods from the Ultima Game series.

Even closer and dearer to my own heart, The Hearth of Britannia runs occasional player meets with LARP’ing aspects and is creating an LARP system!!

The Hearth of Britannia tries to give back to the community, and it’s joining as a Patron was a way the Hearth of Britannia is currently helping many of the community members by giving back when they got a bit more than needed for immediate goals.

I highly recommend checking them out if any of their projects sound like they may be of interest. You would be becoming part of a fantastic small community that is big on supporting those among it!

Artist Juan Martinez at Capricon 2017

The beautiful Dragon you are bearing witness to was made by artist Juan C Martinez, whom I had the opportunity to meet at Capricon!

What is really amazing about this little beauty is that it is made entirely from pennies! That is what Juan does, is using tools and coins makes amazing sculptures out of them.

I obtained two pieces from him, the dragon you saw above and for my wife’s birthday today, I gave her a blue rose.

If you like his work, which is reasonably priced be sure to stop over at his Facebook page “CHAOSART666K”. You can contact him to order pieces. If you do though, be sure to tell him Caveloot.com sent you, as he shows us a little love back for the referral. Regardless of that though we want him to know we are sending him love where we can!

Kickstarter Spotlight – Albino Dragon Playing Cards!

When you talk about Kick Starters here is one that you do not want to miss, even if it’s to just look at.

If you are not familiar with the name of the Albino Dragon Playing Cards, I would be surprised if you have not seen a deck sometime. I believe I have three different ones in my home and I only bought one of them from them direct.

This one offers you a chance to potentially get all the Card Decks they make along with some extras. Woah!!!!

If you sign up for this one and heard it from me, please put in the notes section that caveloot.com sent you! Seriously, I plan on carrying their product someday if I can!

Tour Novia, Kill things, Meet People, Have Fun – Dragon Tail Tours – Shroud of the Avatar

So GoldDraco72 started Dragon Tail Tours up. You not only meet up at scheduled times and learn some secrets of the land, you get to hunt along the way and your paths are chosen so there are plenty of things to hunt!

Fear not for you are given protection!

I’ve started a player ran tour, the first tour is a trip from Soltown to Etceter via underground passages, this tour includes stops at many mines/chests & secret locations. It is a great xp boost to younger players, and a good way to get gold/loot.

As a GM tank, I lead the party while protecting the players from what would otherwise be to tough of an area for most players. This is a great way to meet new players and work together in a party to clear areas we venture to!

The web page is coming in the future, but for now, there is a forum thread where you can get all the details, and post that I sent you!
