This is an ElvenRunes Monthly
Feature written by Kelen, edited by Vaire and published
on the 15th of each Month.
While many of are just
idling away or off chasing orcs or elves. This column will
fill you in about the people behind the characters, glimpses into
their real life adventures and a bit about news, events and trends
in this game we play called MUME.
If you have any events, news
anniversaries, birthdays or anything else you would like everyone
to know mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well the start of this month has been full of mixed emotions. It started off well in the UK with
the massive peaceful protest that was Live 8, some amazing live music in many different countries
all trying to raise awareness of poverty. Then London won the bid for the Olympics in 2012 - there was
a real party atmosphere in the UK. However as you are probably all aware that was halted abruptly with the
bombings in London. The death toll is still rising and the current count is 53 dead and
hundreds wounded. However if anything it has brought many sections of the community together in an effort to
catch the mass murderers and those behind the attacks. It has brought an odd sense of belonging to many people
living in London who had previously felt disjointed. Many of the people I know who were caught up in London at the
time have spoken of it almost becoming a 'nicer place to be' even with the heightened security. Im sure that we all
send our heart felt sympathies to the families of those who died in the blasts and hope that those who did this
will receive the justice that they deserve.
I then celebrated my birthday - having a great time and a really good
haul of presents :D I had a great day! Now I just have to start preparing for pCelint birthday in a weeks time :p He has
asked for jelly and ice cream and a big cake!
*Wave* and *Hugs* until next month!
- Well done to YPSILON this month who snuck up on the ranks
to be the first non Orc to reach level 100!Ypsilon the Still Wind of the Underdark is a level one hundred Noldorin Quickblade. Im sure that
the darkies are breathing a little easier now he has joined the ranks of the true legends and can rest assured of his place in MUME history.
However Im sure that he will be back with someone just as deadly soon!
- The new season of Hat-Trick has kicked off - and it should be a doozy (Translation - very good)! For anyone
who is interested in the beautiful game you can sign up at www.hattrick.org. The early predictions - are that pNamo's team are looking
strong and my sources are telling me they are tipped for the top spot this season. Good luck to all of you and let me know how the season pans out!
- The players of MUME are fed up with taking the mickey out of each other and are now trying to take each others
money too. Some of them have started up a Poker Touney that they hope will become a regular event. Anyone
interested in trying to win or loose some money to your fellow players should have a look at the Arglebarlge boards for
more details of when where and how etc.
Happy birthday too everyone who is celebrating this month!
Anyone who wishes to see their birthday listed, please let
me know if so all can celebrate in your getting older and hopefully
wiser. Please also forgive me if you tell me when Im playing when your birthday is (Sorry Hanne *blush*)- please can you either MUME
