January 2003 - Happy NEW Year!
- A winter-filled greeting to you all from me and my little family. As
I am writing this now, the long-waited film of Two
Towers hasn't reached here yet. But still I got some fun details
with you to share:
- Axel, who went to see TT with 20 of his
other friends, also saw a kind of a marathon: first they watched the
Fellowship of the Ring, and after that the Two Towers. Many Tolkien fans
went to the premiere, dressed up like races from Middle Earth. The most
there were ofcourse human warriors, with shields and capes; with hobbits
as well. But Axel's group of friends was the most notable. They had 17
orcs, one wizard and three warriors. As for Axel, he was the wizard -
because he claimed he looks like an orc in real life, he had to disguise
himself somehow. There were fun pictures about that crowd but
unfortunately the picture-containing camera was either lost or stolen
during that six hour marathon. *sniff* And I hereby propose: if any of
you did the same thing, going to see the movie in a larger dressed-up
group, I bet it would be nice for us to see and hear the outcome!
- Rumour goes that this now past Christmas
the Santa found the One ring, and tossed away all presents, leaving the
good behaving kids without the presents, as well as the rascals without
a punishment! But luckily deeds were noted on Arda: depending on how the
people had behaved the previous year, they got either
a Christmas cookie with sprinkles, or a lump of coal (Imagine
the piles of coal on the trolls!).
- After almost three months of looking for a job, I (Liliah) have found even two of them. And until the
deadline and the training, I'll probably be jumping back and forth like
a goat between two haystacks, unable to decide.
- Gonfor has become a daddy for the second
time. The newborn was a boy of 8 lbs 12 ounces, and 21 inches tall. Born
on the 15th of December, he looks a lot like his bigger sister
Madelaine, who just turned 2 years old on the 1st of January.
- Harad recenlty annouced he got his
driver's license. Norwegians beware.
- Smooth has retired and is trying to rid
himself of his MUME addiction or at least free himself from it somewhat.
Best of luck to Smooth!
- Calmacil was promoted to Mb status for his
notable and quick work on the Fangorn project.
- In-game rumours include the fact that
something strange has been lurking around in Mirkwood. Judging on the
storytellers' and other adventures' stories, the grim shadow of evil is
always hanging upon that cursed forest. Seems that only a few braver
travellers have dared to venture as far as to meet that evil, and even
fewer come back untouched.
- Level updates: Reno reached level 71,
Elestir level 89 and Zaber level 77.
Madelaine- 1st January, Ren 3rd January, Shriek 6th January, Rza
16th January, Saeth and Crazack 22nd January, Durmegil and Relim 28th
I would be happy to receive new updates of all the profiles of
the MUME-players. Since time has gone by, interests have changed,
and people have aged .. please feel free to load me (firstname.lastname@example.org ) with
your new pics and profile updates!
Note: I am still waiting for feedback on
birthday dates, don't be shy!
