Borst Besensteel in Copperhead now sells broom stencils in his shop. These can be used in conjunction with a tin of paint and a small stencilling sponge[1] to apply a stencilled design to a broomstick.

Those wishing to apply a stencil to their broomstick will need a quite respectable degree of painting skill, and should be able to apply stencils to any kind of broomstick. Note that custom broomsticks can only be stencilled if they do not already feature a 'decoration' from Borst.

Those who wish to try their hand at creating fine works of their own are welcome to make use of the forging faci...

Stephan, the resident furrier of Mad Wolf, has finally had enough practice at working with hubland bear fur to be able to use it far more efficiently. The quantities of tanned fur he requires for trimming clothes have been reduced, and several items now require an amount of fur that is more proportional to their size.

The harbourwalk and underdocks of Ephebe are known to be frequented by those who play fast and loose with the letter of the law. Recently, a pair of such individuals have reportedly gone into business - two women who have rejected the widely-held view that it is perfectly acceptable to be completely naked when swimming in the bay or walking through the streets after bathing.
