Freyja: It was exactly one
year ago, when I first typed the address mume.pvv.org. So the month of
May is like little Mume anniversary for me and I'm glad that I have
found my place also in ElvenRunes. Like I have mentioned earlyer I hope running ER Gossip Page will be nice co-operation with other Mume players. Feel free to send me any interesting facts or rumors you would like other players to know also. So like we usually say: May your visit here be (also) interesting!
- There is a rumor going on, that few players have
decided to play so called evil whities
and newbies have been already made. Names this time I can not mention.
Is it spring or some kind of boredom of darkie side, but better hide
your wallet and watch you back carefully even in Grey Havens!
- There is going to be a big Mume-meeting in
Estonia, 1-3 August this year. Over 40 participants have
signed up, and the number is rising. The meeting will be held all over
Estonia, with visiting of many places. Right now there will be people
from Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic and Estonia (the last one of
course a majority). Some estonians are waiting excitedly to meet other
players from other countries and have promised to come surely if they
can meet great players outside form .ee . So start stowing your backpack
and join in, there is a special thread of Estonian Mume meeting in ER
- Another Mume-meeting will take place much sooner in Finland, where
few .fi players have decided to meet at Tuska
Open Air Metal Festival 2003 on 11-13. June.
Sambala has finished her research work about MUME and
addictedness what she made for school study. After defending her work in
school, she was asked to write an article to estonian Educational
Magazine. The research was pulled through to prove that computer games
addiction may grow to an institutional problem. The outcome was that the
problems aren't computer and the internet or the ability to play, but
the attitude and people being bored. She pointed out that if society
would care more about offering opportunities how to spend your free
time, the problem could be solved. She made some tests on people and
watched them in few weeks while they were introduced to MUME and played
the game. Two persons out of ten got really addicted (wonder if I am one
of them :p).
