  • Well its been a bit of a nasty start to the month. Mume has had to take a back seat to Vestibular Neuronitis, my business accounts and cannon firing! Vestibular neuronitis had me in bed for over a week - sorry its such a fancy name for an inner ear infection which left this dizzy blond even dizzier for a while and my accounts have fried my little brain to the crispy bit you get in the frying pan when cooking eggs. However being spring its the start of Re-enactment season! Yay! I get to go out at weekends, camp, wear sillier than usual clothes and drink heavily! And if that weren't good enough I get to stand next to cannon and help to fire them! Woohoo! So the next few months will be filled with ringing ears (great accompaniment to the ear infection) and the faint waft of gunpowder!
    Well TTFN guys I'm off to blow something else up! See you all next month!


  • The Glowstick nominations are in and the voting is taking place as we speak. Androg has done a great job of compiling the lists and bullying players into being judges! Im sure soon we will have pages full of fantastic award winning logs to read and re-read!
  • A HUGE happy birthday for all those who are celebrating this month including our very own Vaire! Hope your cake has room enough for all those candles.... and can someone in her neighborhood warn the fire service...just in case ;) 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.

  • NEWS 2166 - Be careful if you get poisoned! Poisons will be doing more damage per 'hit' but hitting less often - so just be careful if you are on low hits - it might do more damage than you were expecting!
  • NEWS 2167 - Re: Poison. Looks like to go with the new poison the mobs who use it will also have a little change. Also antidotes will take longer to decay than they did.
  • If you have any news, events or anything you want to tell the MUMEing world about please feel free to either Mume mail me or e-mail me at kelen@elvenrunes.com!

    • Maia Promotions:Shalott has been promoted to Mc - Well done me. *ponder* Wonder if I can get another promotion by next month? ;)

    • Levels: Lowyn has gained another level closing the gap between her and Elestir! She is now on a whopping level 93! Elestir has been inactive this last month so is sill at level 97! Who will be first to that illusive level 100? Or can someone else beat them to the top?
