July 05

  • Well the start of this month has been full of mixed emotions. It started off well in the UK with the massive peaceful protest that was Live 8, some amazing live music in many different countries all trying to raise awareness of poverty. Then London won the bid for the Olympics in 2012 - there was a real party atmosphere in the UK. However as you are probably all aware that was halted abruptly with the bombings in London. The death toll is still rising and the current count is 53 dead and hundreds wounded. However if anything it has brought many sections of the community together in an effort to catch the mass murderers and those behind the attacks. It has brought an odd sense of belonging to many people living in London who had previously felt disjointed. Many of the people I know who were caught up in London at the time have spoken of it almost becoming a 'nicer place to be' even with the heightened security. Im sure that we all send our heart felt sympathies to the families of those who died in the blasts and hope that those who did this will receive the justice that they deserve.

    I then celebrated my birthday - having a great time and a really good haul of presents :D I had a great day! Now I just have to start preparing for pCelint birthday in a weeks time :p He has asked for jelly and ice cream and a big cake!

    *Wave* and *Hugs* until next month!


  • Well done to YPSILON this month who snuck up on the ranks to be the first non Orc to reach level 100!Ypsilon the Still Wind of the Underdark is a level one hundred Noldorin Quickblade. Im sure that the darkies are breathing a little easier now he has joined the ranks of the true legends and can rest assured of his place in MUME history. However Im sure that he will be back with someone just as deadly soon!

  • The new season of Hat-Trick has kicked off - and it should be a doozy (Translation - very good)! For anyone who is interested in the beautiful game you can sign up at The early predictions - are that pNamo's team are looking strong and my sources are telling me they are tipped for the top spot this season. Good luck to all of you and let me know how the season pans out!

  • The players of MUME are fed up with taking the mickey out of each other and are now trying to take each others money too. Some of them have started up a Poker Touney that they hope will become a regular event. Anyone interested in trying to win or loose some money to your fellow players should have a look at the Arglebarlge boards for more details of when where and how etc.

  • Happy birthday too everyone who is celebrating this month! Anyone who wishes to see their birthday listed, please let me know if so all can celebrate in your getting older and hopefully wiser. Please also forgive me if you tell me when Im playing when your birthday is (Sorry Hanne *blush*)- please can you either MUME mail me the details or send an e-mail to the above address as I have a memory like a sieve!
