Oh great Patina, goddess of wisdom! I am more than pleased to be a humble follower in your sect.

And I'm already collecting the penguins!!!!!

Patina's Prtiests are also pleased to announce - The Revised Edition of 'Ego Video Liber Deorum' (The I-Spy Book of Gods) will be coming soon to a convention near you.
So get you thinking caps and sketching hands ready - what crazy fun gods have you envisioned for the Disc? What little-known fact about existing Disc gods should be imparted to the masses?


Also - favourite quote from the article:
“We know it’s audacious, but let’s be honest – penguins are a lot more interesting than gherkins!”

I completely missed this... but then I wasn't looking for anything outside the Google group!

Is anything happening behind the scenes?

We're waiting on the full schedule to come out - there has been some background discussion with the monks of cool for things considered 'cool' and 'uncool' for us and the other sects. Apparently the competition will be a bit different this year to other years with a final event to decide the winner as well as indivisual members earning points for being 'cool' along the way - though obviously being a ray of sunshine and good sect member all round will be beneficial to us :thumbr:

Aside from the I Spy Book of Gods and lots of general Penguin joking and little ideas we don't have any set in stone events - I believe there'll be some sect-related slots in the schedule for us to have fun with :bounce:

Errrr... except for;
So You Think You Know Stuff
Intelligence is Useless
Confessions (actually, all sects can get involved in that one)
Dysk or No Dysk
And other ad hoc things as well

Oh, and of course the DWQI session

:lol:
I shamefully forgot how multitalented you are m'dear.

Yes, my humble apologies, I get confused with what's going to be considered a 'sect' event and all the wonderful wisdom-related things Chris will be up to :oops:

I'm very much looking forward to Discworld QI - which I think is now named 'Strangely Fascinating'.

It is - but I didn't know if that was secret or not 8-)
And because all the stuff I'm doing is vaguely knowledge or brain-related, they all count as Patina events.
