There have been several diaries in the past so it's good to see them revived, they didn't get much of a release though before so some are quite rare
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Yeah I'm trying to get my hands on a 'Watch' one.
I have the Post Office and Vampire ones :)

:dance: Not long till August.
And as someone who spent a weekend lisping as part of the Thurgeons, Igorth and Igorinaths guild, I feel this is an almost mandatory purchase.

Edited as I forgot to say - thanks for the link - love the description of the shop!

Very fun artwork! :D I have the previous ones, but very little shelf space left. I don't know if I can justify buying new ones.

They've still all been fun even if they are fanfiction of a sort. The Paul Kidby artwork is great and the little bit of background stuff thrown in has always been worth it .

I have the watch, assasins and fools guild diaries and these guys are publishing new diaries NOW!? urgh... I've yet to get the rest of them and now they are making more work for me! ;) I really cant wait though and of course we all know to look after these new diaries now what with how limited the earlier diaries are.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!
