This is an ElvenRunes Monthly Feature written by Blenda, edited by Vaire and published each Month.

While many of are just idling away or off chasing orcs or elves. This column will fill you in about the people behind the characters, glimpses into their real life adventures and a bit about news, events and trends in this game we play called MUME.

If you have any events, news anniversaries, birthdays or anything else you would like everyone to know mail:

Note: There was about a 4-5 day delay in this issue which was my (Vaire's fault) due to my schedule and resovling some access issues. Apologies all...

Welcome Snagas to August 2006's gossip!

  • Welcome baby Mumers! It's been a busy month, firstly starting with the birth of Kelen's and Liliah's baby trolls. Kelen gave birth too Philippa at 6.34 uk time on the 2006/07/19. Apperently she already snores like Celint so the signs are good :)
    Liliah, not wanting to be forgotten soon after gave birth too Laura-Lei, who was born 2:44 in the morning of 24th July, weighing exactly 3960 grams and being 52 cm tall. A healthy
    little troll nodoubt! She better start growing soon or she'll never be able to slay those young trolls!
    Congratulations to both, and a big congratulations to Celint and Ert(Enforcer) for taking care of their ladies when all they've done is moan and whine about the pains of childbirth (We men feel the same everytime we have a cold!)


  • Another big event of this month was obviously the Mume meeting which took
    place 1st of August - 6th of August in Slovenia. There were a lot of tired and
    drunk mumers all over the place and many stories to tell. Although the one that sticks
    in your mind is the one where Guido... Well does exactly what he usually does.
    Goes and gets wasted and then slams his head in the ground and ending up in hospital for 9ish days. I think we can all safely say you got "pwned" Guido :)
    Go to the 2006 MUME meet summer/autumn thread to hear the stories and see the pictures for yourself!
    After the meeting their were various smaller gatherings around the globe, Thurge and Jackie Chan arrived in Stockholm where we immediately treated them to "Strömming" much to the big trolls delight. Boofhead (the backstabbing traitor he is!) is now spending some time in .cz with Ling and Luke drinking alot of.. well whatever they drink over there.

    • As usual .ee dominated the meeting, maybe it'll make sense to keep the
      meeting to .ee next year? More Swedes will certaintly come and we all know what a party needs to get going! More Swedes! How many people were their from Slovenia? According to Diamonium 4 people :p
      And can anyone post this "so called" picture of Thurge dancing? That must be one sought after item ;) Ria has started making portal traps for New Years eve in Edinburgh, go to the New Year's Eve (Hogmanay) in Edinburgh thread to find out more. I am not too sure about the full list of people who were at the meeting but sources tell me:
    • 01.Ling(CZ)
      04.Lukas brother(CZ)
      11.Ajax (Hell)
    • Sounds like you all had fun and everyone seemed to survive (except Guido!). Only another long year until the next meeting! Hold out!
    • Sneaky as I am, I managed to track down Androg to a shady basement in the middle of a underground subway station. It was terribly frightening but gossip goes beyond common fear! (Out of the shadows a slim man crawls, Its yellow eyes shine with an inner light,
      betraying the spirit encased in the man's body. (Ten points to anyone who realizes what mob I ripped that line off!)

    • So Androg, what have you been doing since you took your leave from
    • Well, other than having about half an hour a day extra time to spend on
      other things, nothing much has changed. Mostly just the usual student-life etc...

    • Hmm... Are you sure, because there have been several debates about a serious of fights you had with the Elvenrunes management? Parents tell their children when they are being naughty that if you aren't nice Androg will take you! Many also believe you are plotting to take down ER and set up your own dictatorship. What do you say to those claims?

    • I find them rather intriguing! What all can people's imaginations create!
      Interesting though, just this week I heard a description of myself which was
      "tall, black haired and spammy on ER" - seems some people still haven't
      noticed me missing! That must be what being famous on ER is like. *nod self* Perhaps it's just one scripted cover-up act organised by me, XL and Vaire? You never know!
      PS. I don't know about naughty children, but I do promise to take any
      annoying teenage wannabe-spammer who irritates me!!!

      So what about meeting you had with Thurge, another member of the sneaky beards? Jackie Chan was there as well, are you plotting together with the Chinese government as well?

      Indeed! We spent a nice monday together. All the other MUMErs appeared to be working or simply out of moves to participate so they were stuck with a retired MUMEr... that's me. First we (or well, more specificly - Jackie Chan) ate some bloody sausages and then we were ready to start plotting against the non-bearded ones, the government, the world... and... I'm forgotting something... or right, against the Simpsons too! You know, I've heard that Bart plays MUME! after that we continued conspiring against everybody who are not part of The Sneaky Beards (or who aren't called Jackie Chan) as we walked through a nice park in Tallinn and then back to the dock. By a miracle the conspirous duo passed the passport control. And yes, being a political science major and all... obviously I did show the dear Mr. Chan my "For Taking Over the Chinese Government" manual!

      Well as a final question, do you have anything to say to the mume community?

      Yes I do, Being the Grandmaster of Spam, I have learned in my days that Warlords come and go,cheaters come and go, portaltrappers come and go... as time goes it all changes. But one thing always stays the same. It's Spam, being a Spammer is the greatest thing a mumer can ever reach, a true Spammerlives forever, if not in flesh, then through his Spam.

      Some very moving words from Androg. I am quite sure we haven't seen the last of him. *shiver

    • Aredhel, Deor and Gruenthar joined the ranks of Mume's valar...coincidentally?...
    • On Sun Aug 6 07:54:21 2006 the Mume management struck a hard blow to the cheaters of Arda. Roughly 1658 levels, spread out on about 76 characters. Always remember, the RULES are here for the fair protection of the players and will always be defended by the Valar. Hope the Management continue their great job in ridding Mume from cheaters and I know we all wish them luck!
    • It is now much more difficult for thieves to climb down areas whilst in sneak. So becareful you sneaker trolls!
    • Just a few days ago Mume went through quite a big change. Many pieces of armour have been renamed and their properties changed. Loading spots of armour have changed and are still changing. Go and read the comments on The Armour thread on arglebargle! Right, I am going to head off now. Premier league is starting tomorrow which means a full day of resting on the sofa, drinking tea and eating biscuits!
