Cyprus hits Earthquake back!!!

Volcanos often seem to die when they are really just lying dormant.

Here's your opportunity anyway, to make up a story of heroism and bravery on the island of Cyprus, to keep us going until we get back into flow with Hig's latest creation: the story of the Golden Stag at ? ...
