Descriptive Frosty science

Quoth the Maker:

Hi all, the much awaited update is finally here!

We now have ‘freeze all’ for bulk freezing, and doing so in the deep freezer
is cheaper, but also will automatically drop all frozen items.

Remote crate viewing is now an option! ‘fhelp fcrate’ for details.

For those without internal maps (myself included) you can now login at
the igloo if and only if you also logout there. ‘fhelp flogin’ for details.

‘fhelp directions’ for everyone else. ;)

There is a new friendlier resistance scale.

You must go ‘out’ of the igloo to leave it now, rather than ‘south’.

And most importantly we now have semi custom and situationally
appropriate titles! ‘fhelp ftitle’ for more information, and apply
Science(tm) liberally.


Meta-Scavengehunt winners

Quoth the Fir:

Thanks to swift-fingered Luthien, goddess of counting, we have finally
officially decreed the winners of the Meta Scavenge Hunt (sorry about
the delay, connecting logs was more brainwork than expected)!

The winner is Pumita, with 58 scavenged items proposed!
Spoo is a close second, and Levek third!

Altogether we got almost two hundred suggestions, and will be sorting
those out while we need to really figure out what is to be considered
‘easy’ or ‘hard’ to get. :)

Thanks to all who participated!

From the Poet Board: Searching

Searching, by Oroan

You wield a smile of sweetness, and but a face of stone.
Though behind those kind eyes lie a world of pain, something you truly cannot hide.
I can read you like a book, through your skin and bones.
Your body tells one story but your soul tells another.
Across the stars you gaze, searching for your lover whom which someday you may find.
Through the turmoil you may fare, keep me on your mind.

Run, Bunny Run

The Easter’s “Run, Bunny Run” event is over! The irrefutable winner is
Precision, who was active through all of the population peaks and
invented the concept of bunny ranches. He was generally making surgical
butterfly axe demolition strikes that left only smouldering craters
behind. Levek came second and Baichu third! In the end, the rampant
bunny populations were subdued but not altogether defeated.

1. Precision: 894
2. Levek: 237
3. Baichu: 117
4. Pumita: 103
5. Yamm: 59
6. Brick: 46
7. Dreamweaver: 21
8. Pulverizer: 11
9. Raederle: 7
10. Spoo, Emeritus: 6

Some Easter highlights:

Emeritus decided to spread the holiday cheer and populated the Tantallon
crossroads with skeletal and mummified bunnies. (Log in Otter’s blog,
which also has the backstory of where all the bunnies came from.)

Otter (98, excluded from list due to being an overpowered organizer)
joined forces with Precision to clear up the arctic areas of a mad
lepine infestation, and still has nightmares of bunnies that go “OMG

Lizard guard, sergeant and mage killed altogether 22 bunnies (the Issla
do not believe in Easter bunnies), and Student studiously stopped one.
One brave bunny (descendant of the rare breed of bandanna-wearing desert
bunnies) hid in the thraxi hyf and according to tale lived there
happily ever after until the end of Easter, chatting up the high guards.

There were a handful Easter Egg hunts as well, all of which were won by
someone! At least Levek, Brick, Pandora, Precision and Otter went on mad
egg-hoarding sprees.

Necromancer update

Necromancer undead have been updated. Necromancers are now able to
affect the tone of voice and behaviour of their undead companions
by changing the things they give them to carry.

For example making the undead carry flowers will make it act more
compassionate, such as intoning “HUGS AND CUDDLES FOR MY MISTRESS”.
Making the undead carry too much alcohol will make it miss more.

There are various item combinations that will make your undead
more powerful in various ways, but we will not reveal what they are.
As a first hint, though: to make the undead last longer, you can
for example give a skeleton a bone or a mummy some bandages to carry.

Happy exploring,


Dymwood Gnomes

Fellow explorers, have you ever found yourself in the depths of Dymwood
in need of rest but with no safe place to take it?

I recently stumbled upon some gnomes in the region who, while not
enthusiastic about it, offered to share their shelter with me. They
even provided some entertainment!

I was too busy scarfing their dinner to listen to why they were there,
but it looked like they planned to stay for a while.

Sorry I haven’t the time to write more. It seems something I ate didn’t
agree with me.

EuropAA 2014 aims for June/July, West Coast for 2015

The meet of AA players in Europe (EuropAA) is being planned for this summer again, this time the target times are June/July.

Brain is organizing a West Coast AA meet for the summer of 2015, and asks for the following:

In a year (Summer 2015), I really want this US West Coast convention to
happen and I want to make an appropriate event here. I need to set up a date
fer this to happen. If you were coming, how many days do you want to be in
Seattle during the summer? (It might rain, but not so much around
June/July/August.) Feel free to add options as you see fit.

Any three day weekend starting with Friday.

A four day weekend starting with Friday, ending with Monday.

A five day weekend (we can figure it out later)

A week?!?

Thanks, and I hope you consider showing up!
