- All of you know that there are some items on MUME, about which players are
not too sure if what they do.
- One of those question marks is certainly a small tin ring .
Old rumours say that this ring protects you from diseases, other tales just note
that the wearer of this ring will be immune to flu. Asking around brought a
clear result: the majority of players think it is effective vs flu. Including
this, there is an old story that if you keep a warm blanket close and around
your body, you wont be infected with the flu, even if a sick person stands right
beside you and happens to sneeze.
- Many players who live in the region of Northern Europe,
know about the rain and lightning storms that took place a few weeks ago. For
some of us, it wasn't just a fun to watch. When the lightning storm started on
20th of july, player of Backfire sat in his home, near Oslo
(Norway). He pulled out all the plugs of electricity, in case the lighning might
struck in. But - he forgot to disconnect the phoneline. The ligtning hit
straight to his home phone network, scorching a router worth of about 1000$. So
all he had was his mobile phone, which he attatched to his pc, to tell me this
story. For the time this story appears, i hope he got his connections back, and
dont have to idle or die with playing from work, where scary boss can ruin the
- Some higher gods have come back from their vacations, including
Maedhros and Namo . Namo spent his vacation in
France and Germany. Right now he is 'losing his skin' due to the really hot
weathers and extensive sun.
- Rumours say that Draught has disappeared and is absent
without leave... Maybe he is having his own secret vacation?
- The builders of MUME are known to be working on some new projects:
Anduin Vale with its unopened zones to the north, and the
flowing plains of Rohan with all its villages to the south. In Vale, all zones
are ready with rooms and mobs, waiting for the final overviews and muddles. In
Rohan , the zones and rooms are ready, and builders are working
on mobs and items at the very time.
- Relim's wife is pregnant with their 4th kid! That is
probably mume-players record about fatherhood! Probably a girl again, since it
is Relim's personal track record. Baby shower! :). They live in England, near
the famous and archaic Stonehenge.
- Birthdays to celebrate this week: Trent on 7th August,
Fisben 8th August.
