NarniaMUCK's 10th Anniversary

Well, friends, many of you should have heard whispers and rumors about our Anniversary event occurring on Saturday, July 9th. Here's the skinny on what's going on and why it's happening:
NarniaMUCK has been around for 10 years! I know-- we were delightedly surprised when we realized this, too! It's hard to pin down an exact date for when to say the game began: when RP started really happening, when the first room was built, when Aslan was created... there are too many good options. So we decided to take the esteemed Wixenstyx's birthday (for our newer players, Wix is our longest running headwiz)-- July 5th-- and call the closest available weekend the anniversary date. Independence Day Weekend being out for obvious reasons, July 9th it was.
Now to the good stuff. What you really want to know, I'm sure, is what exactly is HAPPENING on July 9th.
In the forums, we plan to have some art and poetry contests, on which Melody or myself will be giving details shortly.
As Bucki has hinted at in her post "The Book and the Nook*, Coghill will be opening in Archenland in preparation for a very special event yet to be released (her post can be found at:
Since NarniaMUCK has been around 10 years, that means that the White Witch has been dead 10 years on our Narnia timeline. For that reason, Narnia is holding a great celebration festival in Beruna Fair. There will be martial contests for you warrior characters as well several other contests for our more peaceful creatures, along with special items, dancing, and more. Several Featured Characters, including Lucy and Mr. Beaver, are scheduled to be present as well. Be sure to start prepping your character to make it to Narnia now!

We are very excited for this anniversary event, and hope to see all our beloved players present and enjoying the festivities. While we love building, developing, planning, and scheming, our great pleasure is derived from learning that you all appreciate the outcome of our work. Thanks for respectful attitudes, dedication to the game and each other, and clever, believable writing these last ten years. Let's set off another ten well.

April Fools Contest Results!

An overdue congratulations to Dalia and Niffum for tying in the April Fool's Day contest by noticing the most crazy changes! Thank you to all our contest participants and be sure to try again next year!

March Review

NarniaMUCK Players:

If you see a staffer as you wander around NarniaMUCK, don't forget to thank them for the work they did during March. The staff achieved many things during the last month!

Probably the biggest and still on everyone's minds is all the hard work they put in to make April Fool's Day fun and great. I think all of that work paid off--I observed many fun times being had by players and staff alike.

They've also been working hard on another project--one we've not talked about much yet so it probably hasn't been on your radar--Coghill. A combination of construction project, code tweaking and writing, story writing, a lot of hard work has gone into it throughout March and before. I'm eager to share details with you...but I wouldn't want to spoil your first experience of Coghill.1 Wink

In addition to the big projects, there are so many tiny things we fixed in March it'd be hard to remember them all, much less list them all. Mining problems, new products for stores, new recipes, border costs that were incorrectly set, helping new guests, helping new players, documentation updated, exits fixed, ... this list could go on for a while. Those of you that have been helped by staff directly can probably think of specific instances better than I can!

So be sure to thank them for everything they've done! Wait. I want to be first: Thank you, Staff of NarniaMUCK for everything you've done in March!2


  • 1. Okay, maybe one or two. I'm pretty certain there's buildings. And some rooms in those buildings...hope I'm not giving away too much!
  • 2. Ha! Beat all the players to it. Oh. Except the ones that already have used the compliment command (in the game type: compliment Thank you, Feaelin!) before I even posted this. Rats! Foiled again!

April Fool's Day 2011 Ends!

I hope everyone had a great time yesterday! I know the staff had a great time dreaming up ways to transform NarniaMUCK for April Fool's Day.

Our normal NarniaMUCK server is back up at the normal ports. Just as a reminder: Read more »
