|solobeatlefan||10:00 pm - Need help on a game.|
I'm redoing my Herc/Xena based Monopoly game. And I wanna pick your brains. Yes even yours. ;) The thing I need help on is Blessings and Curses (Community Chest and Chance cards, respectively). I already have the place names and all of that. I just want to enhance the Curses and Blessings.
Sampling of Blessings that I already have:
Artemis increases your archery skills. You win first prize in Olympics. Collect 100 dinars.
You retrieve Xena's chakram from Callisto. Go forward 3 spaces.
You're challenged to a chariot race. Advance to Mycenaen Covered Chariots (takes place of a railroad.)
Salmoneus' get-rich-quick scheme costs you 1000 dinars.
You opened a strange box. Lose a turn.
You offer rotten fruit as a sacrifice to the Fates. You are fated to 12 days of insanity. Lose a turn.
Warlord lays waste to your village. Pay 1500 dinars for repairs.
I just love that Make Your Own-opoly. So much fun. I need a spiffy name for it too. I have one I've been calling it, but, I'm not so sure I like it.

|jenocclumency||03:26 pm - Warrior Palace (formerly the Xena Palace) Farewell Party|
I just wanted to pass along the announcement that the Warrior Palace Chatroom (formerly known as the Xena Palace) is finally closing its doors.
We're having a final farewell party Sunday, August 28th (tomorrow) starting at 3 p.m. Eastern and continuing on throughout the evening.
The palace was launched in May of 1998, and through the years we've had thousands of Xena fans join us in the Warrior Palace. (Including many of you in this community!) If you ever graced the virtual gates of the Xena palace, please come join us at the farewell party!
You can download the palace software at this address: http://www.warriorpalace.com
(And of course, you won't need the software very long since our little chatroom shall soon cease to exist).

VOTE FOR XENA!
Apparently this has been going on for awhile now... But it's the first I have heard about it.
go to http://richlabonte.net/tvvote/ and type in Xena: The Warrior Princess
You can vote every hour. In the last 3 days since people on Missy's pack list have heard about it, we have doubled the votes! Goal is to take over the #1 spot and kick wannabe Xena Warrior Princess Angel outta the top spot!
Let's show 'em what a real fandom can do!
xposted in every Xena community I can think of!

|ktaborn||09:16 am - Statuts of Whoosh|
The 100th issue of Whoosh actually covers the months April, May, and June. My desktop died and I am waiting for it to get fixed. Once fixed, I will resume Whoosh.org. My husband of 18 years passed away on April 1, 2005. It was sudden and unexpected. Since then I have been allowing myself to mourn. This has been one of the greatest tests of my life and I am still seeing how I am weathering it. I do intend to resume Whoosh. I just need a little more time.
I did have a chance to work on two features for the 10 Anniversary XWP DVD Set. I worked with Laura Irvine on the Hong Kong movie influences in XWP and did an extended interview with Alexandra Tydings and talked with some professors about Aphrodite. The HK feature should knock your socks off. The Tydings feature is really fun.

|alucard66||07:30 pm - Season 6|
I've been meaning to start a discussion on Season 6 for quite a while but never got around to it. Upon watching the DVDs, did opinions of the episodes change afterwards? What does everyone think of the season now?

Whoosh! will be celebrating its 100th issue this month. It's an amazing milestone, and one we could never have reached without you. Thank you for that! Whoosh! will continue on a quarterly basis after this issue, with #101 up in June. Keep those stories coming!
We had planned to have Issue 100 up on April 1, but it's being delayed a bit. Kym's husband Wes died suddenly last Friday after a short illness. Kym and her family are doing well, but as you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for them. Any positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you have would be greatly appreciated.

I thought this might be of interest to some of the folk in Whoosh!-land:
Distraction: The Journal of Fan Fiction Studies is getting started, and just issued a CFP.
