- Now that the summer
is over, it's time to head back to indoors and start muming again.
Did you spend enough time in wilderness? Did you get a sunburn? Many
of us have left behind our old routines and started new assignments
others are simply starting another year on the same path as the last.
has gone back to college. She has decided to learn something that is
useful in the real world as well as MUME-- becoming a translator/interpretator
with major in English. Earning her Master's Degree is within reach!
- Player Dafur
is back at work again after a 6 month vacation, he will have
less mume time now. As he used to play 7 hours a day he will now be
lucky to get to play 10/hr a week.
- And I (Freyja)
am looking for a job now, hopefully near a computer ;)
- Rumour is that many
students have been kicked out of schools because of too much MUME.
Beware of having less time to study and missing classes with
endless MUME sessions.
- Level Updates: Lowyn
has reached level 84. Zaber is level 83 and Sardaukar
has gained 2 levels to 67.
- In politics, Estonians
had to vote on 14th September if they wanted to become members of EU
or not. 67% of all participats voted for 'yes'....hmm...Estonian mumers secretly
hope that with all the good things promised by joining the
EU their mume-link might be even faster after 1 May 2004 :P.
- And Sweden
has for now passed on adopting the EU's currency as well as is mourning
the death of a well-known and admired member of its government.
- Players are buzzing
around Diamonium's Mume Mapper called MOM
(MUME Online Map ). It runs only under WINDOWS, and
you have to create almost all your maps yourself, but it's a good with
the help of a promising tool to learn Arda. I haven't tried MOM out
yet because I am running LINUX, but I have heard that many are having
fun with it. Diam has to work on the program a little more, but
I believe this program will be very popular. Good work Diam! I wish
there will be something for LINUXnux users too...

the game calendar has reached the end of the Third Age. On the 30th
of August the MUME clock was turned back to the
year 2850 of the Third Age.
- There is rumour about
new rules for creating names. Are they more strict and how they are
going to be used is not known?
