I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well.  Now, onto this week’s Notable and Quotable!
This week’s quote comes from our RPG gaming table. 
GM/DM: This wild and tattooed barbarian is known as Baco.
Player 1: Paco?
GM/DM: Baco.
Player 1: Paco is a weird name for a barbarian.
GM/DM (now becoming suspicious of the Player’s ‘mistake’: Did I mention he’s a Battle Rager with an artifact axe and that you notice he begins to seeth with anger?

You can find an ever-growing glossary and geographic guide on our website here;  You can also find a few spoilers such as the lineage of kingdoms, the Code of the Cavalier, and so on. 

The book I need to tell you about this week is a diversion from our usual fare. The Lady and the Farmer, by R.A. Barlow is a clean romance for those of you who might enjoy a more puritan romance from time to time. 

A fellow author, Stephanie Hansen (no relation), was kind enough to send me a copy of her new book, Altered Helix AND an Amazon gift card for Christmas. How cool is that? You can find her work here;

As to life here in our little corner of the world, we learned from the vet that our Great Dane rescue, Pinker, is deaf.  Thus, we’ve begun teaching her sign language for commands (no, sit, stay, get your ball, let’s go outside, etc). It’s been an unusual but wonderful experience. Oh, and pet tip of the week, don’t stand on a slick surface when an eight-month-old ninety-pound Great Dane is charging you to return the tennis ball you threw.  Another pet/marital tip, don’t play fetch with a ninety-pound Great Dane in the house, and certainly don’t throw the ball anywhere near where your wife has her knickknacks displayed. 

Let me know how you’re doing.  Feel free to drop me a line at with word of how you’re doing, questions about our tales, or comments about the story or the world of Stratvs.  If you enjoy our brand of ‘humor’ or just want more frequent updates, you can follow us on Facebook here; Roland’s Quest!
Until next time, ‘Crush your Enemies!’
