As sad as the naturalist Enutrofs are to see another Summer coming to an end, it’s likely to inspire them and all holidaymakers to make the most of the remaining August days. Now is the time to seize the moment and go all out. Live your best Summer, and make sure to send us a postcard via Stagecoach!




The beaches are still crowded, and a little piwi told us that many adventures have been taking refuge in colder climates for some well-deserved R&R during the season. There are also those that take advantage of the peace and quiet to strategize and plan their next battle against the toughest and scariest monsters… to each their own holiday, right?
 
Some citizens of the World of Twelve are already returning home before Autumn arrives and their attempts to avoid traffic backfired: there is a lot of commotion on the Cania roads, the queues to enter the cities are long, Scarplanes are working overtime, and the drills are overloaded enough to make Sorim Ait lose his composure.
 
 
Traffic getting into Bonta...


Good thing you aren’t one of those poor souls stuck under the Summer sun! Can you imagine, basking in that unique sweaty Gobball stench that dissipates from the cart in front of you, unable to find solace in the breeze because you are stuck in line, next to a bunch of Bworks who are allergic to soap?

Just get to it already!


Alright alright! So! While the weather is favourable, and before the time comes for us all to put away our beach towels, make sure you have your last Summer hurrah; something so badass that it will make you want to write home about! If you have completed your Summer bucket list already, that is OK too! Tell the tale!
 
  • Summer holidays spent fishing? Tell somebody about your biggest catch!
  • Read 5 books back to back? Which was your favourite? Even if your guildmates might not be interested, Aisling in Astrub Library would love to know to hear from you.
  • Made a new friend? What mischief did you get into together?
  • Preparing for an end-of-Summer-back-to-back-dungeon-world-tour? Tell us more!

Your options are endless! You can send your unique and personalized postcard to whomever you want! Just make sure it has all the necessary stamps and the correct address: while the Astrub Stagecoach is the best postal delivery service in the world of Twelve, Fiuna lost her glasses and Nash is overdue a checkup to replace his goggles!
