Download the Placefinder Card for this marker—it's in triplicate—and then print it out, preferably on card stock (cool color paper welcome!). Just cut the papers into threes (there are printed marks to assist you with this) and distribute the cards to information racks in the area. (And, of course, post some pictures and tag us!)


Grwosts are thin, almost in the sense of a sheet of oil, but they are not a liquid at all. And these creatures have the ability to help solve the problem that many gwomes have strikingly different qualities of dimension than their neighbors--so there can be great risk. Individuals are much lower risk than multitudes are, which has thankfully prevented most massive invasions across time frontiers.

This marker is featured in our new Kcymaerxthaere Travel iPhone App.


This plaque is just inside the front door of Hopcats--to the left. It is accessible during their normal business hours (which we are pretty sure means that even minors can visit it so long as they are in the restaurant part)

Public Dedication

On September 27th, we had a great tour of all 5 of the Grand Rapids sites--starting at Erailen Gwome (near Kendall College of Art and Design) and finishing at Grwostlaven--here at Hopcats, where we quaffed both the Pel Kwint (and the Kwin Tel--from Aywatin gwome)
