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:

February 05

  • Well spring is in the air here in the UK - I spotted the first baby lambs in the fields and the Daffodils are starting to show their yellow heads!

    I will be graduating from Oxford University before next months Palantiri! Yay me! And will be celebrating in style, well a curry and a bottle of fizzy wine if I'm lucky ;)

    I have been enjoying the company of some of MUMES growing community of blind and partially sighted players some of whom are trying to get together some data to help themselves, and others play more easily. Things like text directions/instructions from, to and for useful places, instructions for quests and such like. If anyone has some of these things that they would like to pass on, please either mume mail me or e-mail me (the address is I will try to pass it on to those who are gathering it and collating it!

    The Austrian MUME meet was last weekend and those who attended should start to surface soon; please treat them gently as they are likely to have the hangovers from hell! ;P A big well done to Sarinda and Eis for getting it all together and I will try to get some more information out of them for next months edition, although there are some pics up here and a journal entry in a blog here if anyone wants to check it out!

    Well TTFN guys! See you all next month!


  • There will also at some point be a UK MUME meet, just as soon as I get around to arranging this.
  • 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.

  • There have been rumors abound about missing apprentices and horrible experiments being carried out! Anyone wanting to find out more should go to Ost-in-Edhil!
  • Doors in Mume have changed. Those doors needing a key to get in now have an internal latch system, so you can get out again more easily!

  • Many people have explored the new zones around Isengard, are you one of them? If not go check MUME's latest expansion.
