Aunt Trudy hears...

Aunt Trudy

Aunt Trudy provides news and, well, gossip from Yellow citizens. If you have something you want in the Gazette, just contact

First Tours of Yellow

The first Tours of Yellow will be coming soon, hosted by the Yellow Gazette. Check the forums for upcoming dates. There are splendid rides through spectacular scenery.

Yellow Builders Guild

The Yellow Builders Guild is beginning to take shape. It's a big project, so we'll keep you posted when it's ready for public consumption. This is developing into an exciting enterprise which will benefit all in the future.

Steampunk village being prepared

In the next couple of months, the new steampunk village, Victora Park, will be ready for builders. We've been talking to the developers who say that the village is in the queue of major projects for the near future. Watch this space!

No news on Chloe yet...

The whole village is waiting for news about Chloe and Rufus; when are those cubs due? How are they coping? Let me know if you hear anything...

Can you find this place?

This poor chap has been trying to find his way out, but time has run out for him. Can you find him? He's somewhere in Yellow. A quick clue: it's rather cryptic though.

Well, it worked the last time...

ActiveWorlds Forums

Did you know that ActiveWorlds has an excellent set of forums? You can visit them by clicking on the URL that appears in the chat box when you first come to Yellow. Be sure to register for the forums. That way you can post and read, rather than just read what others are doing. And be sure to check out the Communities section there; Yellow is one of the featured world communities. It's a very good place to post materials -- other than in the Yellow Gazette, of course!

Mummies rising from the grave...
Mortal, now you must be brave!

Bats and mice and goblins too!
They're all invited, as are you!
