Staff Update: Welcome Selowyn!

Hey folks! You may have noticed Selowyn around the last couple months, helping answer questions and beat me at cubes. She's clever, witty, and a great resource for plot and character development help, so send her a hello when you get the chance!

Social Media

Yesterday, I unexpectedly found myself buried under a deluge of emails. "The webconnect has broken!" "My client's acting funny!" Now, luckily for me, this mysterious rash of MUCK dysfunction was simply a result of the game having gone down. When the MUCK came back up a little while later, though, I began to think about those emails again. I could detect subtle notes of panic in their phrasing. "Why has my computer betrayed me like this," they seemed to say, "and without leaving me a clue how I can repair it?"

Which brings me to social media. Read more »

Planned Server Outage

Due to server upgrades, there will be a planned outage on July 18th, 2013, starting at 11 am PST and lasting until the servers are upgraded and brought online.

Because the forums are linked to NarniaMUCK's game servers, they will also be unavailable during that time.

Thanks for your understanding!

June Contest (with Real Life Prizes!)

We're updating species info and we want YOUR help. Write an article on any species answering these questions:
How big is it?
How heavy is it?
How much can it carry (both in weight and bulkiness)?
Does the species have a "government" exclusive to the species? e.g. how does it make group decisions (or does it)?
What are the cultural norms of the species?
What does every [species name] know?
Is it normally able to read?
Is it normally able to write?
What special abilities might they have?
What special drawbacks might they have? (there should be more of this than I visibly see)
What did the species do during the 100 Year Winter?
What is a general history of the species?
Is it mentioned in canon? If so, where?

You MAY submit multiple entries (my advice is one per alt, but go crazy). You MAY use what is available in current Species Info articles. You MAY ask your friends for help. You MAY make up suggestions if the information is no where to be found. You MAY add additional information. You may also omit answers if you just don't know, but the best entries will hopefully have thoughtful, researched answers to all questions.

Please send your answers to staff@narniamuck.org. Deadline is June 28. Read more »

May Festival!

Come one, come all – To the festival of the year! We are inviting all able-bodied players and their characters to join us this May for a time of merriment, mingling and an overall good time! The schedule of events will feature another tournament, some interesting announcements, a few special guests (including a certain canon Calormene) and hopefully enough RP to make your heads spin. Wink This is only the beginning of something big and we look forward to seeing all who can make it! (Stay tuned for more specific dates!)

MAY-be Chat Month

For the month of May, we're going to try out the Glow Chat System by adding a global channel. It is possible that you'll think of it as the 'public channel' but it is called "Dreamchat". The usual sorts of commands will allow you to access it, such as 'dreamchat', 'dc'. As I am lazy, I leave the other aliases as an exercise for experimentation.

We'll be trying out a variety of settings throughout the month. This week, the channel is configured so that it has to be turned on each time your character connects (unless it is already connected). The channel WILL NOT announce when someone has started listening to the channel.

It is a public channel, anyone might hear what you say on it, so be conscious of that when you use it. Don't have conversations on it that you intend to be private. As always, be careful not to reveal privileged in-character information, do not use the channel as a way of speculating about player alternate characters, and try not to 'reveal your secret identity'. Play your cards close to your chest, just like a superhero. Smile

We're trying it out from 2012 May 1st (Midnight-GMT) through 11:50 PM GMT on May 31st.

Be Nice!

I play an online computer game which will remain nameless. Socially, the game is a great deal like a MU*...small independently operated servers with a small staff. I had been playing 'lone wolf' style--playing independently of the other players on the game. I paid only marginal attention to what staff and other players were talking about on public chat. On occasion, I saw some things go by that got an raised eyebrow or two, but I ignored it... Read more »

Father Christmas and Christmas Events

Father Christmas is back in Narnia! He'll be wandering about Narnia, Archenland, and even Ettinsmoor from now until January 15th. Find him and get a special prize!

In other Narnian news, please join us for our Christmas feast to be held on December 18th. There will be a breakfast feast opened by Edmund in the "morning" and an evening feast and dance that night-- noon PST and 7pm PST respectively (subject to change). In between Tumnus' house will be open for storytelling and tea, food will be available, and there will be room for dancing, chatting, and friendly spars. All sorts of interesting characters (including celebrated canon characters, generally ostracized characters, highly militant characters, and perpetually inebriated characters) have set out to enjoy the festivities, so this promises to be an event you won't want to miss!

New Log Scrubber!

In the absence of updates to Weisfrill's log scrubber, Glyn has been kind enough to provide us with a new one! Please try it out, and let him know if you have any feedback!

The link to the scrubber can be found in this forum thread:
