I probably should have mentioned this before Halloween (since it's origin is tied to Halloween), but anyway, after SEVERAL years, I have finally finished the Pirate Song! Go check it out in the Tales section.
I'm actually pretty proud of how it turned out. And I'm really glad simply to have finished it. It sat on the Khoras website, half finished, for YEARS. Man, it feels good to have it done.
I had some technical problems with the forum and had to do some updates and patches. It got a bit tricky and the forum was down for several days, but it looks like everything is working again and we are back online.

When Mom (Betty) was born in 1938 these were some common prices of things.
Car: $700 Gas: .20 cents a gal Bread .09 cents a loaf Milk: .50 cents a gal Eggs: .18 cents per dozen Stamps: .03 cents Average annual salary: $1500 House: $3900 Rent: $27 a month Harvard Tuition: $420 per year
S&H Green stamps helped with food and gas.
Grandpa Eicher (Her dad) made about $25 a week at the Union Pacific railroad. They paid about $10 per week for rent.
