I washed his cup well, and was charmed to see an inscription in the glaze in Darthacan, but my Darthacan is very rusty. Maybe you can ask Penric and let us know what your cup says, if you have the time and inclination. I'm sure it's something inspirational!

Aw, thanks! I worked from home on my birthday. Had to buy my own cake and candles, but my family paid for them. The cake was a ready-made from Whole Foods, but it tastes more than good enough. All in all, am happy about it.
