R. Chronicles Begins

3. Mythological creatures
4. Chicago's neighborhoods, transit system, and high profile landmarks.
5. Druid staffs
6. The magical properties of various types of wood as accepted by Celtic Druids
7. Pancakes (Okay, these I already knew but still, it's always best to be totally familiar with your character's preferences. Plus, they were good.)
