University King Overthrown

It was a catastrophe that not even Melisandre, the Red Woman could predict. During his weekly ceremonial feast at the Mustang Dining Hall, King Joseph Shepard looked down from his seat at the head of the table. As King Shepard bit into his roasted boar, fresh from Winterfell, and took a drink from his goblet, he noticed something different. “I remember approaching his majesty, and he looked at me like he was trying to say something, but the words would not come out” said David Cota, Resident Peasant at WNMU. Moments later the students witnessed President Shepard motioning with his arms and they realized what had happened. The President had been poisoned. “We could hear him mumble before his last gasp, ‘we always repay our…’ and then he fell to the ground” said Chief Edward Flores. “Our guess is he was referring to the new tuition guarantee, but we can't be certain until we investigate further. Crows have been sent across the seven counties spread the...

Dothraki Studies Implemented By Popular Demand

Universities are challenged to stay up with the times, and in a medieval world, times are always changing. “We have always been a Hispanic Serving Institution, but recently we have had an overwhelming demand for classes that meet the need of our Dothraki students,” says Matthew Lara, Director of Admissions. He is referring to a fast-growing population of students that skip the admissions process entirely, something the university is grappling to accept in its goal to increase enrollment while meeting the needs of this new breed of students. It has been said that Dothraki do things in their own time, for their own reasons. With that philosophy, semesters begin and end when students are ready. New fall courses include sword fighting, horsemanship, body painting and hand-to-hand combat. This program is incredibly competitive and only the strong will pass. “It’s hard not showering for days and scavenging off the land, but my professor was so passionate about my...

Author George R.R. Martin visits Silver City, talks new season

The upcoming season of Game on Thrones, premiering on April 12, will have new twists and turns that even the most ardent fan will find shocking. Martin calls Santa Fe home, the state’s capital city where he also owns a theater. His trek down south to the historic streets of Silver City was his chosen location for his talk “Spoiler Alert: The Uncounted Death of the New Season”. Martin began his talk by relating to a familiar hero to Silver City residents, Billy The Kid. Martin explained that ‘The Kid’ was restrained by the powers of authorities in the southwest, not allowing him to become the powerful, and bloody, ruler of his time. “He would have become a perfect fit for one of my books,” said Martin. He was on track to become a ruler with no mercy, a ruthless, unapologetic character that destroyed anyone in his way. After revealing some surprising plot lines for the fifth season, Martin visited the reconstructed log cabin, modeled after the childhood home of...

Elsa Brings Winter With A Freeze on Tuition

For four seasons, students have been wondered when winter would finally arrive. The time has come and it arrived by a familiar yet surprise member of royalty. Elsa, known to most Dothrakians as Khaleesi, was behind the suspenseful arrival of cold throughout land. Winter Is Coming was a phrase for which the residents of Vaes Dothrak lived under. Now they are living under a new motto, Winter Is Here. The arrival of cold, brought by a queen who can also walk in fire, was a surprise for the Dothraki people who once called their queen Khaleesi. “We don’t know who Elsa is but what she has brought us is liberating,” said many Vaes Dothrak villagers. While the Dothraki don’t believe in money, they are welcoming the effects of the cold with a tuition freeze on all incoming Dothraki students. A guarantee on stable tuition prices is one sign of a new beginning brought by a queen by a different name whose life motto is a new three-word phrase: Let It...
