Yes, its true! To be a featured in the game as either a Peasant or Maiden, simply follow the instructions on http://www.sadeness.demon.co.uk/foundation-mugshot.html
and follow the simple instructions! You'll need a passport photo-style scanned image of yourself, and your name. Anyway, all the relevant information is on the web site.
I look forward to seeing you all!
