Mid-Realm Bardic Madness XX: That Which is Olde is New Again

“Storyteller's Creed:

That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than 
                                           - Robert Fulghum

"Never let the facts get in the
way of a good story."

                          - Mark Twain
