A Christmas Of Merriment
Now that I've adjusted my peg leg and straightened my eyepatch, I emerge to share my wishes for you this Christmas!
May you open a gift and find a dragon egg waiting for you within, iridescent to the eye and warm to the touch.
May you find a worn and battle-scarred Santa waiting for you with his hat in his hands, begging you to take over his powers and defend the North Pole from eldritch invaders.
May you roll a snowball only to find its cold seeping through your fingertips, into your veins, crawling up your bones and changing the very heart of who you are...you have received the Gift of the Snowball, and now you can conjure a perfect snowball into your hands at any time of year.
May you dig into Christmas dinner to find that each bite sends new strength flooding through you. Every bite of ham drives away your old wounds and illnesses. Every cranberry sharpens your eyesight, every dinner-roll your hearing. The potatoes pump power to your limbs, and every sip of wine (or juice--I don't know how old you are) quickens your thoughts. You emerge from the dinner table in a perfected version of your old body.
May unseen elves clean up your wrapping paper. And also your house while they're at it.
And if Christmas has already ended for you when you read this post, may you raise your eyes from this screen to see a red-and-green portal ready to take you back in time to a Christmas day on which all of these wishes came true.

Merry Christmas Will! Loving the Cradle audiobooks do you know what the ETA is on Skysworn and Ghostwater?

As one of my favorite YouTube personalities says:
12/30/2018 03:47:29 am
Yes, in fact this money is burning a hole in my pocket! :P

You know, with how much we've been demanding/pleading/begging/sacrificing for Underlord, I've gotta say, well done Will. You've made an incredible series that is so much fun to read. I count myself among those that want to throw money at you for these books.
1/2/2019 10:44:24 am
Pretty sure the pre Christmas release was audio books.
12/31/2018 02:40:00 pm
All these comments about throwing money at Will makes it sound like he's a erotic dancer😜🤑

So just started reading unsouled again and was wondering if the badges Lindon picks up in the ruins are in fact the fabled true badges. The ones myth says are able to improve ones madra
1/1/2019 01:37:23 pm
Oh heck. I just finished rereading the first five books and totally missed that! Could explain how Lindon made it from foundation stage to truegold in like 2 years.

Nice catch! I've been through the books a dozen times and didn't pick up on that. Something fun to discuss in r/Iteration110Cradle maybe?

May the New year celebrations temper your mind with delightful visions of grander and instead of a hangover; unrelated power to accomplish all your goals.

Happy New 2019 Year! We're in the future! Ever think there would be electric cars or VR?

The portal didn't work.

Any kind fellow who would tell me how I get access to the fabled Discord server? Thanks!
1/2/2019 11:46:12 pm
I would also like to know this!
1/2/2019 11:56:23 pm
