2014 marks the 9th year Thar Shaddin has been around, which means 2015 will be our big 10th anniversary. Frug has some pretty neat things planned that will hopefully make it in for year ten (you have a whole year man, DON'T LET US DOWN), and in the meantime I look forward to seeing what crazy awesome things you guys come up with on the rp side of things. So, thanks for sticking around, thanks for having such wonderful brains, and thanks for making Thar such a kickass place to rp.
On to actual December news!
Pedom Morini: a city.
Jinyiwei: police for Tian Xia, loosely speaking.
Eyropa Map: It's so gorgeous with its new provinces!
Fairy: added general writeup for Pretana fae.

Staff: Intended Upcoming Projects & Wiki Updates for January
Leftovers from December:
Pretana writeup (this will likely take a few months, as it's Meesh's love child and she is busier than a bee)
Super secret rp project postponed by Frug loving his other projects more than us.
Add the syn & descendant love/hate/claustrophobia maps to the politics page.
Frug is going to make the descendant family political view graph easily editable with NAMES ON HOVER! cool beans.
Frug is gonna recode the Marn Govt structure and Guard structure in html so it can be more easily viewed

For January we mostly intended to catch up on the backlog from December -- but there is one new thing I'm adding here because it shouldn't take too much time, and that's a list of changers. We have the major changers named, so all that's left is a small writeup.
Players: Ongoing & New Projects

Baruk: Orcs of the Sooqui Plains
Intended: writeup of the Wild Hunt
