Yesterday’s odds, ends, and missed connections, and what’s coming up today.
“Flat-faced race, this is hunting!” Monster Hunter Freedom will add a THERMÆ ROMÆ-themed greatsword. Entering a code included in November’s Comic Beam will grant you a quest with the Thermæ Origo as a reward.

The code is only redeemable through January 9th, but the naked Italian guy is yours to keep.
