Afraid so, although there is apparently a specific type of cake called "bishop's cake."  :D

ETA:  It's similar to a pound cake, but I think a little smaller, because it calls for a mere half-pound of butter.  ;)

Thank you!  And I suspect cakes with a handsome Deryni bishop on them are probably even more rare than cakes with lions dormant!   ;D

Although we are playing close to cannon we have of course gone outside of that cannon since nothing has been written for this time period yet by KK herself. Also the game rules are based on Tiny D6 with a large drawing and conversion from the Fudge Deryni Adventure Game rules.

Chapter 9 of the Deryni Adventure Game is the chapter on Magic and how it works in the context of the game. There are few fun paragraphs in that book. Like this one:

Quote
Other Secrets
Legends suggest that Deryni of old knew many other magical secrets, that they
could raise the dead, move massive stones, walk the hidden paths between
places (perhaps without use of Transfer Portals)
, and much more. How much
of this is based in truth and how much is merely legend no one knows. Game-
masters should feel free to create and introduce their own unique spells and
secret magical lore in their Deryni Adventure Game stories.

As a GM, I could have lots of fun bending or even pushing cannon with that and so could the players too.

I don't think the part I put in bold font is necessarily extracanonical anymore, since I suspect that is what Sir Se does when he pops up in unexpected places without using a Portal. Stefan Coram might have known the same secret.  (Isn't there a scene where Duncan sees Saint Camber vanish before his eyes, yet later on we discover that was actually Coram disguised as Camber?)

Happy birthday, Evie!

(In amusing news, when I searched Google Images for a cake depicting a lion dormant, the first image was for the cake I posted in Jasta's birthday thread a while back.  :D )

Due to the nature of this forum (play by post) game many of the GM type posts are handled actually by the players themselves. Thank you very much for the assistance. However there are times that the GM will step in and nudge things in a particular direction or is it a misdirection.

Some can be minor events such as the weather if the GM wanted to give a few days of thunderstorms in the summer months that would be possible. Making it dark, wet, muddy, and rather miserable for the troops on both sides of the conflict. It could be major events too. Maybe a 2 front war, that happened once already for Kelson. I don't think it will happen here however. The Pax Kelsonus is still happening in the East after all. Its only the Mearan province that is a torn in his side.

GM posts. That's a scary thought. Shaking in my boots.

So goodbye to the season of goodwill, then?

It's the season of goodwill for the players. But for the characters and the world they live in it is is summer and there is a rebellion brewing in Meara.
