This Saturday we will be holding the “Dead Man Walking” Challenge. It will be a typical foot race . . .but all the participants must be dead! It will start from the primary entrance of Trinsic, and end at the Gung Farmer’s Bridge of West Britain.
Rules are simple. You may not deviate from the roadway. If you attempt to take a shortcut, you will be disqualified. You may not ressurect. You must remain “dead” for the entirety of the race.
If you can, stay in war mode so that all participants may get the ever fun image of a large group of ghosts running their little…ermm…what is it ghosts move with again?
Meet us Saturday August 29th, 7 PM CST, at the primary Trinsic entrance to participate! Hope to see you all there.
But that’s not all. On Monday, August 31st, we will be doing another Cloak of Silence handout at the Hall of Champions for those of you that have missed out thus far. You may hit a rune to the Hall at both the Counselor’s hall in West Brit, as well as at the stage in the Luna fairgrounds. We will also be providing a moongate from Luna. We will start handing out robes at 6 PM CST.
Will be extending the deadline for submissions to this event to September 15th. Two reasons go into this. One, we feel some players may need more time. But mostly, to give you all the oppurtunity to work the new housing tiles that’ll be released with SA into the design.
In a stunning show of mercy, Lord Casca has decided to make a deal with Markett. Lord Casca has decided that Markett shall be forced to fight vicious beasts brought in from lands throughout Britannia. If he survives, he will win his freedom. If not, his public death will be an example to all to not disobey the orders of the King.
For those of you not familiar with Markett (previously Lord Markett)…he was a Royal Recruitment Officer credited with bringing many volunteers into the ranks of the Royal Guard. Lord Casca believes the man directly disobeyed his orders (though this has seen much debate) by going to the lands of Felucca to combat piracy. As an example our King decided the man shall be sentenced to death.
Lord Casca invites all to come and watch. The event will be held Sunday at 8pm CST. A special moongate will be opened at the West-Britain bank to take everyone to the arena.
The Lake Superior community meets every Monday, 7:30 pm CST, at the Skara Brae Community Center (located next to bank).
These meets are by the players, for the players, with the main focus centering around the weekday community hunts coordinated by Sabina Nikolai.
Reward hall Reconstuction Challenge!
The “Hall of Champions” is in need of a face lift. As such, we are asking you, the players, to submit their own design of what you think the reward hall should look like.
The hall is an 18×18 building that needs to appear grand and lush. There shouldn’t be a lot wasted space, or unusable space. Fountains, Rock garden, waterfalls, ponds, and other decorative things are okay. It would be preferable to have all 4 floors usable/accessible, since we need to place trophies down.
It is suggested you use a Test Center shard to place an 18×18, so that you don’t have to modify your existing player house.
Send all entries to Aname@uoem.net with a CC to Autolycus@uoem.net . Pictures showing every floor and part of the house will be required. You may enter as many designs to this contest as you wish.
The winner of the reconstruction event will receive a permanent plaque honoring them as the architect of the the building in the Hall of Champions.
The deadline for submissions will be August 31st.
There will be two Cloak of Silence handouts at the Hall of Champions this Friday. The first will take place at 12pm (Noon) CST, the second taking place a 8pm CST. You can find a rune to the Hall out front the West Brit counselors hall, as well as at the stage in the Luna Fairgrounds.
If you cannot make it this Friday, fret not. We will have more handouts in the future.
In an intercepted message from Marcus Murphy, Scout of the Royal Guard, to the yet unnamed Captain of the Guard:
“Sir! It is my upmost belief that the Shadowlords, whom we highly believe to be behind the attacks on Luna, are staging their final assault on the city tonight! I highly recommend you call on all the guards, enlisted or volunteer, to defend the town. Let them know that any and all survivors of the massacre shall be handsomly rewarded.”
Many dark creatures descended upon Luna Tuesday night, including several manifestations of the Shadowlords. The players, as well as the town guards, did a great job holding the raiders back.
Even the guards found themselves overwhelmed, however, as a number of creatures broke through their protectice barrier, wreaking havoc throughout the Luna town center.
It appears order has been reobtained, for now.
Apparently Lord Casca has ordered the placement of special lanterns around Britannia and Malas, requesting the attendance of all to Castle Britannia. He will meet in the throne room Friday, 8pm CST to deliver a speech regarding recent happenings.
Lets see what the elf King has to say.
All in all, the hunt was a fun success. Roughly 18 people began the hunt, but only a handful made it to finish. At just 17-minutes before the timer for the event was to run up, a winner was found.
Congratulations are due to Jerard Slasher, whom first found all 20 items on the anagram clue list.
All the participants did great, with most solving the majority of the scrambles, and finding the proper items. Good job, everyone! May your minds get some well earned rest tonight.
