April Fool's Day Preparations

Every year we change large sections of the muck to prank our players for April Fool's Day. It's good fun for both staff and players-- just a full day dedicated to complete and total silliness. It started out long ago (years before my time) with a few amazing staff members who literally got on the night before and changed probably hundreds of rooms in less than 24 hours. We give ourselves a little more time for prep these days, but I am consistently impressed by how much fun and creativity comes out of my fellow staff members (and our players, too, on the day of).

A World Without Boundaries

NarniaMUCK is a Role-Playing Muck. Our job as staff is to come up with ways to encourage and foster great role-play and great stories. We do so in variety of ways--imposing  limitations on the characters and their world, helping bring the right characters together, writing larger arcs that everyone can take part in, and building an ever-growing playground for us all to play "make believe" in.

New Forum Theme

You may have noticed in recent weeks a new theme for the forums that is slightly more in keeping with the main body of the website. It's been sort of my pet project for the last several weeks and as of this writing I believe I've finally gotten it to the point where everything works as intended.

However! I am going to be completely honest with you! I don't know the first thing about web development, and it's possible that there are lots of things that I have broken or browsers in which everything looks atrocious. To that end, I would be greatly appreciative if you could let me know about any possible bugs you find with the new forum skin. I can be contacted by email (blackclaw@narniamuck.org), in-game page mail, or by forum message.

Server Restarted!

My apologies to anyone that was connected this afternoon. I was checking on some things, attempted to open the server log file (a REALLY large text file) in Emacs--this was apparently too much for the machine. We were back up quite quickly though.

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 »
