Amid the seriousness that living day to day in RhyDin can bring, we offer a tiny bit of silliness to help brighten your day.

Living in RhyDin, the residents are accustomed to seeing bizarre things. Often unbelievable urban myths told in taprooms and diners across RhyDin.

For you, our loyal readers, the truth has been tracked down.

Vampire Vs. Train=Epic Fail.

On Monday evening, the City Guards responded to the scene of an accident involving a vampire, a train and a Ferrari.  It seems the driver of the Ferrari, one Mr. Bram Bloodsucker, did not pay heed to the tracks when he stopped at a red light.

When the safety bars came down, Mr. Bloodsucker jumped from his beloved Ferrari and towards the train in efforts to save his expensive car.
The train was able to stop before hitting the car, Mr. Bloodsucker was not as lucky. He was thrown more than forty feet back from the impact with the train.
When asked later, why he made such a foolish attempt to save a car, Mr. Bloodsucker only grimaced a little as he said, ?The chicks dig it.?

The RhyDin Post / Sixteen Question With Ehzoterik

Many of us have seen Ehz around RhyDin, but what do we really know about the lovely Miss Ehzoterik VonArcanum Tempestas?

We here at the RhyDin Post wanted to know more, so we sent off sixteen questions for her to answer. Some of the questions are a little strange, but Miss Temestas seemed not to mind.  

We are posting her responses as they were sent, to give you, our readers, the full benefit of the absolute fun that Ehz embodies. We absolutely adore the fact that she uses crayons in her correspondence!

1 Do frogs have ears?

I had to go find a frog to ask him, because I don't know! But when I asked he only croaked in my face and peed in my hand. It was kind of gross. Maybe you'll have better luck than me, though.

2 Have you ever had an imaginary friend?

Oh sure! I have dozens of hundreds of imaginary friends! But I'm not supposed to talk about that. It's bad juju. People don't like it when you tell them they're completely made up.

3 Which would you accept a dinner invitation from? Jigglypuff or Harris?

Definitely Jigglypuff! That's one I need to get to sign my autograph book. Harris isn't anyone special, though he has neat hair. Maybe if he were more famous like Jigglypuff. Did you know my autograph book has signatures from Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo AND Raphael? That last one was hard to come by. He's much meaner than I remember him being on television. I thought for sure he was going to stuff me in a locker or something equally not nice.

4 Do you ever doubt the existence of others?

This question makes me unhappy. I like questions that are happier. Like maybe if you'd asked me if I like pudding. Then I'd tell you that I LOVE pudding. Especially chocolate pudding. But I don't like pudding pie so much. Pie itself is just kind of icky. The crust is always so dry no matter how much pudding you put on it. Somebody should invent a completely pudding pudding pie that's made entirely of pudding crust!

5 Tara has a Popsicle and offers to share. What do you do?

Yay Popsicle! Tara's so nice! Thank you, Tara! Wait. Is this a trick question? I don't see any popsicles.

6 How weird is too weird?

Your face is weird.

7 What is the weirdest thing you did to kill time?

Do you like kitties? I LOVE kitties. I have two kitties! There's the white one -- her name's Paste -- and the black one. His name's Cut. I used to have a parrot once too. His name was Copy, but he got really boring after a while. I wonder what happened to him? I'm sorry. What was the question again?

8 What's your favorite word?

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. Don't worry. I can't say it either.

9 What was the last furry thing you touched?

My kitties! Yay kitties!

10 You can press a button that will make any one person explode. Who would you blow up?

Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiinjiiiiiiiiiiiiin Faig! Heeheehee! He'll just put himself back together again, right? Like Legos. Ooo. Legos.

11 The Peanut Butter is plotting to take over the pantry. What do you do?

Mm. Peanut butter. I'm not really a big fan of peanut butter really. But it's good on toast with jelly on top. Like an open face sandwich. I don't really like just normal old fashioned PB&J, and I only ever eat the edges of the Reese's Cups anyway. Why is there peanut butter in my pantry! I don't remember buying you!

12 If you had to choose between a million gold and being able to fly, which would you choose?

Flying is fun! I went flying once. In this one place where everybody flies all the time because the atmosphere or something is like so much different than ours. Or was it the gravity? I don't remember. In any case, on this world, everybody flies! And the only way to keep buildings from floating out into space is to shackle them to the ground. And people have to wear special heavy shoes so they can walk around their houses. And everything in the houses has to be bolted to the walls and floor. Gosh. I should go back there soon. I feel like I'm forgetting something important about that world.

13 What's the most bizarre thing you've seen someone else do?

Is this another trick question? You do live in Rhy'Din, don't you? I mean really now. And when you've seen as much TV as I have there's just no such thing anymore.

14 The stew in the Inn speaks to you. What does it say?

The same thing it always says to me. The Stew always wants more shoes. I keep them on hand to feed to it whenever it gets out of line. And I keep telling people that it likes shoes, but everybody's always screaming and flailing and it never sinks in. You should tell people that when you publish this. Write it down: Feed. The Stew. Shoes. Got that?

15 The Angel Of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel Of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do in that half-hour?

Bite what exactly? I'm not really much for biting. Unless of course I'm eating. You kind of have to bite what you're eating, you know. Except for Jell-O. Jell-O just wriggles right down your throat, but usually melts in your mouth before that. Mmm. I like Jell-O.

16 "Friedrich Nietzsche said, 'All truth is simple. Is this not doubly a lie?' Do you agree or disagree with this statement, and why?"

That's a funny name. Nietzsche. Hehehe. Some people have really silly names.

More Holiday Spirit in RhyDin
December 27, 2009

?Tis the season for holiday cheer, and RhyDin?s citizens certainly know how to open their hearts at Christmas time for those that are less fortunate than themselves.  Here at the Post, reports that Santa has been to town have been coming in from all over the city. One such report comes from the City Orphanage.
The children in the Orphanage awoke Christmas morning to find dolls, wooden trains, trucks and other toys under their tree, which were delivered in the wee hours of Christmas morning by six horse drawn wagons.  The note attached to the toys was simple and sweet.

?Merry Christmas, From Santa?

A spokesperson for the Orphanage confirmed that there were initials on the lower corner of the letter, a mysterious Z.Z.  The staff speculated as to who it may be but were very careful not to share those thoughts with the children.
The children were more than happy to believe they received a visit from Santa if the positively radiant smiles on their cherubic faces were any indication.

In addition the Clinic?s children?s ward was also visited by Santa. With wagons full of toys like the Orphanage had received. The staff at the clinic was moved at the generosity and whimsical spirit of the mysterious benefactor known only by the initials ?Z.Z?.
Whoever you are, Z.Z., you have made the holidays brighter for many of RhyDin?s children and we thank you.

Holiday Spirit Hits RhyDin City
December 17, 2009

Today, Zippo?s Diner got a much-needed dose of holiday cheer. A mysterious couple that had dined there paid not only their bill, but also the bill for the adjoining table. This set off a chain reaction of niceness in the restaurant as diners came to the till only to find their bill had been paid, and in true holiday spirit, paid for the next table.

?I?ve never seen anything like it.? Wilhelmina Helsched said with tears in her eyes. ?It was almost like magic.?

Wilhelmina, or Willie, as her friends call her, said that in her ten years of working in Zippo?s Diner, she had seen many strange things, but never had she witnessed such an act of complete selflessness and generosity.

?Most people stay to themselves so they don?t get into trouble. But this was so nice, so kind of them to do. It was magical.?

Magical indeed, Willie.  One theory going around is that the Mages are trying to block any further attempts at reviving the now dead Prop 37 movement by spreading good will and cheer around RhyDin.

Another incident at the Ye Olde Market supports this theory. Last Tuesday, the owner of the Market was about to take care of a shipment of what was rotting produce, only to discover that it was miraculously fine.

Other reports of ?Good Samaritans? have been coming in from all over the city. Often-amazing tales of generous acts, that seemed to happen by ?magic?. Leaky roofs fixed, broken toys repaired, a sick family member suddenly feeling better.  Is it the work of Mages, or just kindhearted people helping RhyDin in their own small way during this holiday season?

Could it possibly be a subversive movement by the Mages to sway the favor of the public in their direction should Prop 37 come to a vote again? Whatever the cause, the residents of RhyDin will happily accept it.
