"Wishing you all a safe and fun Holiday Season ~ Shima"

December 3rd, 2001

Wow ... has it been six months since the last time I updated ... doesn't seem that long ago. I apologize to the Holt ... my personal life has been frantic in the past few months. For right now I am going to close down the JOIN page until I get this thing called LIFE under control.

I do have a couple of updates though ... first ...

CONGRATULATION TO ONSHA AND HALBAN!

On Matthew Thomas Stewart ... born November 3rd, 2001

Also have one new artwork to show off from Isbeth ... a picture of her human Celest.


It's that time ... please support ...

This is going to be my last update for about a week ... the computer is going to be shipped out for repairs. I've added a couple of new CISs ... Chavrise, a timid huntress and Ranir, a brave young slave ... both are played by Gina.

I've also added Stripe Deer to "The Great Desert" and added three new artists to "The Gallery".

My apologies for the lack of updates over the weekend. I had an unexpected guest ... my niece came for a visit all weekend. I really expected to be able to sit down and work on the Holt today ... BUT ... my son’s last day of school was last week and he really didn’t want his mother sitting in front of a computer all day. So going to take a little bit to get me and him adjusted to the summer time thing.

Anyway, enough about my problems .. on with the Holt! Over the weekend I did managed to update a couple of pages ... the deadly Sand Cobra has a new look as well as the Prickle Boar, both which you can find in “The Great Desert” section of “General Information”.

Also Onsha did something fun with a few of her drawings, just click on the spinning puzzle piece below.

I have CISs and pictures that need to be put up ... I will do so this week, just ask for patience while I do.

I'm writing this shortly before midnight, so I know by the time I get it up it will be June. So ... Happy JUNE!

Our Chieftess has been busy again with her paints ...


Just a couple of the animals you will now find in The Great Desert page as well as Onsha's Artwork.

Also a few more animals have been added ... I am starting lose track ... just keep an eye on our ever-growing desert.

We have two new members ... one is brand new ... her name is Kit and her elf Hatani will be the Healer of DesertWinds ... the other is an old member just waking up ... we are happy to welcome back Moontiger to DesertWinds. Both will have CIS posted soon. You can reach Hatani at LdyKitWolf@aol.com and Moontiger can be reached at Woodgog@aol.com.

Speaking of Healers ... there is a new section that can be found in the Join Us page ... it applies new guidelines in addition to the ones posted if your character possess magic (other then sending), an elder, or for the humans ... a Lord or Lady ... Commander. Please take a moment to read over it ... to see the expectations we have for those members.

I missed a day ... hope you all didn't miss me too bad. Onsha and I have been very busy with The Great Desert . There is a new picture of a Runner on the Runner Page ... also read about Sting Tails, Mud Stingers ... and why you will never see Shima collecting silk from a 'Moon Child' along with other beasts of the sands. I encourage you to read over the new listings and watch for more as Onsha and I identify the flora and fauna of DesertWinds.

We now have a Guest Book! It can be found on the front page. I have also added a couple of links about the NEW ElfQuest comic book coming out this summer, "Wolfshadow". Warp Graphics asked that we promote it ... and encourages you to ask your local comic book store to order it. A couple more ElfQuest related links have been added to the Links page.

I've changed my mind on the Member Page mentioned in an earlier e-mail ... there is a new forum on the Message Board titled SENDINGS and there you will find a separate link for your e-mail, URL, AIM, MSN, ICQ and YAHOO.

AWARD WON!!!

Congrats to Chieftess Onsha ... We Already Knew She Was A Great Artist, Now More People Do!

Have you ever wondered what a Desert Tiger look like? Well, Kim has now drawn a wonderful picture of one ... you can find in "The Great Desert" in General Information.

WHAT'S THIS?!?

Welcome to the Update Page! This is where I will try my best to tell you what has changed on the page ... though I really hope you take time to look through it all.

I've added a short story by Isbeth to "The Wind's Voice" This is Isbeth's first story for the Holt, I hope you take a moment to read it.

I am also working on the Links Page. I am looking for ElfQuest sites to put up ... including any personal ElfQuest sites you may have.

Please reply to the E-mail I sent out about the Member Page.
