August 2011 Featured RP: Explanations

An unexpected reunion between Caileana and her mother leads to unpleasant questions, less pleasant answers, and stress all around. Read more »

Machine Down!

The machine is down and inaccessible at this time. I'll comment here when I know more. Sad

Recent Outages

On three separate occasions on Saturday, the muck was down for a couple of hours. There was a problem with a process on the machine (not the game's process) tying up the entire machine and requiring a reboot to resolve.

Very soon, an update will be installed on the machine that should correct the problem. Hopefully, the update will be installed before the process misbehaves again.

"An Archenlandish Drinking Song"

Give me ale on this eve
Fill me cup to the brim
An' I'll drink, by yer leave
Of that brew, ever grim

Far from home are we now
But we're drinking away
All the troubles we've found
Down this glass, if we may

Sing with me everyone
As the moon's shinin' bright
Fer we've nothin' but fun
Even though we're a sight!

Feel free to find your Archenland character humming this tune to him/herself as s/he downs a good tankard!

The royals are so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute, don't you just want to wrap them up in a big, sparkly bow and feed them s'mores? I do! *clears throat* Fangurling done. Read more »

10th Anniversary Afterthoughts

I just wanted to do a little summary and acknowledgement on the Anniversary Festival. First, I want to thank all the staff for the work they put into it. Everyone helped with the generation of the Anniversary idea as well as all the different events that went on and items that were created. Especially the Game Development staff should get some thanks for all the hard work on Coghill, which had major contributions from Emilia and Paxa as well. Lydia also did a TON of work: redescribing all the rooms in Beruna, creating food, prizes, and new things to buy, and several other things that this festival couldn't have existed without. Feaelin even popped in for a while on the day itself, despite having several RL obligations right now. Wix showed up, too! I know many of us were very excited to see her, none more than we the staff.

But I also want to acknowledge how great our players were. This festival could have just been some contests and free food, but it turned out to be so much more than that. Many of you will be going home with enough new RP material to fuel weeks of RP. All of you (I believe) are going home with new relationships.
A few highlights are:
Every single one of the royals (and some other FCs, too!) logged on! Many of you got to have a personal conversation with at least one FC.
Ponderpate, Winddale, Petraverd and Glyn, and Raistlana were the winners of our various contests. All of you (even Raistlana) were very gracious winners, and I was surprised to see some interesting RP arise out of the contests themselves.
On the dancing green, Odell, Frillawit, Niffum, and Fidus ruled the roost with much singing, dancing, and drinking, which caused both some new friendships and some mischief.
Lastly, I would like to acknowledge the Wolves of both Ulfden and Winterden. A lot of repressed tension came out in the melee (the strategy of which was pretty fascinating), but some surprising friendships emerged as well.

You were all patient and friendly with one another OOCly, and true to your characters (be that in competition, grace, friendship, rivalry, drunkenness, anger, joy, or sorrow) ICly. What a truly excellent representation of what NarniaMUCK is as we remember the past 10 years.

Fashion Update

As a little anniversary gift to all of our clothing-wearing creatures, never-before-worn items have been added to the tailor shops around the game.

For Narnians traveling to the festival at Beruna, these can be found in Sted Cair and Barfield. Note that the sizes are not alterable, but they will fit both Fauns and humans, and we've also included some new choices just for our Dwarfs! For Archenlanders, the shops now contain a variety of options for both Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve, commoners and nobles, and formal and everyday situations.

Go forth and RP! Buy your sweetheart a new ribbon, or save up for a pretty dress that all of the other girls will be jealous of. Keep in mind that no two shops have the same inventory, so the next time you find yourself traveling, be sure to stop on your way and pick up the T-shirt! Wink

NarniaMUCK's 10th Anniversary: One Week!

Less than one week, in fact, and have we got some great things in store! Here's a quick summary of what's to come:

COGHILL is opening, and the citizens are preparing to celebrate their Heir Apparent's new wife, Lady Honour.
TWO humans are now allowed to all players in order to populate Archenland. Request today!

NARNIA is celebrating 10 years of freedom from the White Witch with a festival at Beruna Fair. In addition to dancing, food, and special items, there will be four contests:
10:00am PST FISHING Contest with Mr. Beaver
1:00pm PST COOKING Contest with Queen Lucy
3:00pm PST MELEE Contest with High King Peter

IN the FORUMS, there are two great contests (with only one submission so far!)
An ART contest at http://forums.narniamuck.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=189
A POETRY contest at http://forums.narniamuck.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=190

I am so excited, and I hope you are, too!
