- I have been so busy
in MUME worinkg on my testzone with Freyja,
that it is the first time in seven months I forgot about gossip completely.
Could it be that building is more fun than playing MUME for me?
- Lots of people that
applied have gotten testzones and people seem to be happy they are no
longer being told "no jobs."
- There is lot of noise
going on about new zones in MUME. Meny have seen the new map of Lothlorien,
Caras Galadhon. But is it going to be opened soon or maybe it
is just hidden, nobody seems to know. Have you tried 'seek Lorien' in
some spots of existing mallyrn forest?
- Player Fergus
was struck down with a mystery illness in late july that had him hovering
on a coma at one stage, and unresponsive for many days. After 5 weeks
in hospital the doctors still did not know the cause. He is now at home
recovering, and, hence, casually muming again. Poor player Einalem
was pregnant and sick through all this.
- A lot of players keep
whining about the new 'breath of briskness' changes. Really,
how can warriors run in metals all around Arda without often feeling
tired, but casters seem to get exhausted even when the spell has just
been casted. Warriors and battleclerics seem to be getting more use
out of this spell than pure magic users.
- Player Velameth's
son is really interested in keyboards and it seems that he'll be playing
in no time. No account hasn't been created yet for the 5-month-old baby,
but there is no age limit on MUME!
- Another young father
is concerned about his son's mumeing. Puzzle tries not to PK
when his 5 months old son is near, because little one seems to like
the flee button a lot!
- As there is a lot of
joy around mumers and their new offspring, there is also loss touching
some of us. Though often quite a colorful character on Mume that has
both friends and enemies, sincerest condolences go out from both sides
to Nagoroth, who lost his mother this month, as well
as to his step-brother Teejay and the rest of their
family. Life is precious and those that are loved and remember never
truly fade away.
- Linkless killing is
still a topic of conversation despite the fact that you can no longer
tell if someone is linkless if they are an enemy.
- For old mumers who
were longing for some nostalgia and new mumers finally experiencing
what people call the "good old days" an interesting an old
version of MUME VI runs of and on temporarily on
fire.pvv.org 4106. Sources say the version is from around Feb. 1998.
