  • The MUME Adviser says: Those who use "Joke" also use "Death Trap" ;) Well I thought I would start this months Palantiri off with a laugh! This month seems to have whizzed past and I seem to have hardly had a moment to myself. I finally managed to get one of my characters to finish the Istar quest and she can now be found in Ainu land either slumming it in the Sauna or gambling away my hard earned money with one of the many dealers up there. Funny how the Immos that have their own little place in the world seem to like nothing better than kicking back and relaxing! :) Well sit back and relax in the steam in the rest of this months Palantiri!
    Well TTFN guys! See you all next month!


  • The Glowstick nominations have been taking place this month, so if you have seen any great logs make sure you either nominate it or vote for it and maybe you could get it awarded a prize. If you have some great logs of your own...nominate those too...after all what have you to loose...except maybe your pride.
  • Mini-Mume meeting on Friday 29th of April in Stockholm. Anyone interested should contact Ling or Luke and/or post on the web-board! Im not sure if this is just a meeting for the short of stature Mumers or just a little meeting, but which-ever way with Luke, Ling and a few beers involved, a good time should be had by all!
  • I have been asked by a good friend of mine to put in a mention to you all that if you see any cheating going on, to make sure that you let someone know about it. Send a mail to a V+ with all the details and if possible a log of what happened. Cheating - its not right - its not fair, but unless you do something about it then it will keep happening and quite possibly drive the good and honest players away.
  • Anyone who wishes to see their birthday listed, please let me know if so all can celebrate in your getting older and hopefully wiser. Happy Birthday to you all anyway.
