IC Happenings: 2017

Hey guys!

We haven’t done one of these big updates for a while, but NarniaMUCK’s had one eventful year that looks likely to lead into another eventful year, and we figured a recap might be useful for anybody who wants to jump back in but isn't sure where to start. Read more »

The Time Has Come

Prince Cor is returning, everyone! Like, real soon. Real, real soon. In fact, here's a poll to tell us when you would be able to RP about it: http://doodle.com/zweqnzqqepqtg8g3#table

Perhaps you should participate. PERHAPS.

But what does prince Cor's return mean for ME, Antheia?
Well, this is going to be THE big canon event in NarniaMUCK. Featured characters will be pouring out of our ears. There's going to be battles. There's going to be big burly folk knocked down by scrappy 12 year boys. There's going to be cute old lady dwarves with delicious food. There will be laughter, there will be tears, there will be fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles... ah wait that's the Princess Bride. But us too! (Okay the torture is mostly listening to Lasaraleen go on about parties.)

So please, join us for the mayhem and merriment. Even if you are not able to attend scheduled events, there will be enough fall-out for lots of fun and drama. Never played, don't have a character anymore, or don't remember your password? No problem. Send us a message on FB, log in as a guest, or email one of our staff emails and we'll get you set right up.

Role-play staff update

As some of you may have heard, Antheia and Emilia will have to spend more time in the real world starting this autumn. (They are getting older, after all, Aslan advises us.)

While they will still be around a bit, Wickham, Melody and Jarron have agreed to pick up the role-play staff responsibilities in the meantime, so feel free to give any of them a shout for role-play questions!

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!)

New Staff: Jarron

Everyone please join me in welcoming Jarron to the Narniamuck staff! Jarron is a talented RPer, and has offered to help out in our Roleplay department. He'll be learning the ropes over the next week or so; don't hesitate to say hi if you see him!

Also, he wears a cape.

Father Christmas

Father Christmas has arrived in Narnia! Just for you, staff has drawn up a rough schedule of where he'll be on any given date and released it for you to view at your leisure. Log on and greet him! Read more »

Advice on Travel and Borders

Someone recently brought to my attention that since the half-removal of the border system, this concept has never been fully clarified, so I am here to do JUST THAT VERY THING.

The basic principle here is: use common sense. That's it! Go how far you think you can go!

That said, we at NarniaMUCK Staff Incorporated (tm) have put together some things to help you out, since virtual maps can get confusing. Read more »

Tip of the Week: Travel

When you cross into a new region, you receive a message telling you "You've crossed a border!". That means you've travelled around a day's journey. These are in place to help you keep travel realistic. If your character plans to travel, enjoy the journey and keep the timeframe to get there within reasonable limits. Your character needs a good IC reason to move regions--something more than "there was a lot of RP there". Are they traveling to see family? Are they a merchant with a new spice to sell? Are they delivering a message? There are great regions to explore and we understand it's tough to find RP at times, but
keep random travel to a minimum, and if you ARE traveling within your region or a nearby one just to map or for fun, please do it when there aren't RPers around, and don't bring that travel IC.

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.
