If you missed this thread (some people thought it was about buying a house), and aren't interested in PenCon, then you may not know that Goodjerdom now has it's own castle. Well technically my wife and I have a castle, but as a long time member, Goodjerdom now has a castle by proxy. Mi casa es su casa as it were.
Those other threads are about the experience of buying a castle, some joking, some Flagons, and some hair pulling. Feel free to peruse if you haven't. I'm sure they'll keep going as this experience unfolds. This thread, on the other hand, is blatantly commercial. 's alright though, I've cleared it with the powers that be.
My castle, Ravenwood Castle, is a bed and breakfast in Hocking Hills Ohio. A castle with a medieval village, a Great Hall restaurant, a Tea Room, and a working pub. We'd love to have you come out and stay with us.
Now don't get me wrong, we'd love to have just about anybody come and stay with us, that's how I keep the lights on and the moat monster fed. But we'd really love to have fellow GWJers come and stay with us. To that end - and as a thank you to all the folks here who have helped, educated, or just entertained me over the years - we're making the castle very GWJer friendly.
- Offering a standing 10% discount for GWJers (see notes below).
- Providing the first round in the pub for free if I'm onsite as well.
- Hosting at least one, and hopefully more, GWJ events on site.
- Managed by a full time on-site GWJer (MonoCheli)!
Rumor has it there is also a custom made Stan flag being toiled over in a foreign sweatshop somewhere, to be hoisted when a GWJer is on site. I can however neither confirm nor deny this rumor...
So come stay with us. We'd love to have you!
Notes re: Discount - if you make a reservation online there's no place to put in for the discount. To get that, send me or MonoCheli a PM and let us know you're making a reservation. We'll get you hooked up. This not only gets you the discount, it allows me to plan to be onsite to drain a flagon with you if possible.
Also, please be aware that the discount is intended for GWJers, please don't create an account just for the purposes of getting a discount. Create an account, hang around a bit and participate in this wonderful community. In short, become a GWJer. I promise you, good things will follow.
