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.
This Friday, July 31st, at 7pm CST come meet us by the Jhelom bank (Felucca facet, so all may participate) for our first ever “Anagram Scavenger Hunt”!
The game will be simple. Every player will be able to get a list of anagrams (basically a word scramble). You will have to figure out which item in UO is being scrambled, and gather that item.
The participants will have until 9pm CST to gather the items. After they gather them, they will have to solve another anagram to find the location the EMs will be waiting at. The first person to find us and show us all the items on the list wins!
The newest addition to the EM team will be making his first public appearance at the weekly Community Meet in the Skara Brae Community Center, at the usual 7:30 CST time. Come by and give our new EM a greet!
“For disobeying my direct orders, and putting at risk many volunteers of the Royal Guard, I hearby sentence the Royal Recruitment Officer of the Guard, Lord Markett, to death!”
