A new April begins, March ends

31 March, 2020

April begins tomorrow with a day of tricks and misdirections, though in some ways it seems that the world has been playing enough cruel tricks on us this year, and, as such deception not being my specialty, do not expect anything clever from me.  But I hope to enjoy cheerful cleverness from others.

Through A to Z again!While April is obviously drawn from the name of the Roman month Aprilis however it is unclear where the Roman name comes from, it may refer to the opening (aperire) of buds and flowers as Spring arrives or in some way to the goddess Venus, to whom it is a sacred month, or something else.  We just do not know, such is the way of history.

I am again doing the the Blogging from A to Z Challenge for April, the theme will be “Interesting Things in the Sea of Stars” so if you have questions about my setting, please ask.

  1. I think I learned about the A to Z Challenge here in your blog for the first time. I’d love to have a multiplanar crossover to include an entry of yours in my blog as I’m also hosting the RPG Blog Carnival!

    I’ll follow you closely, wondering if the Sea of Stars has anything resembling an interplanar vessel and also a primer into its planar cosmology.
