Healer Power


A recent discussion thread on c.s.m.g.a. mentioned a visionstone of Lard Almighty and Lorikeet displaying some impressive healing power as the last standing healers in a battle in the Orga Outback. No one has been able to find a complete visionstone of the entire engagement and rescue, but thanks to Lex, TMN is able to present this partial visionstone, showing Lard and Lorikeet managing to stay on their feet even when things were looking hopeless.

RC Responds to DM Dunny Challenge (Finally)


Rising Claw responded to Dwarven Militia's Dunny Slaw challenge today (er, a couplea days late... hey, I overslept! What kin I say!). To quote:

To the fabulous Dwarven Militia:

We accept the challenge of a Money Hunt on Sunday, erm, two weeks hence
(lemme see... how's April 13 sound? too far along?).

We do, however, protest the banning of puns during the contest. This
would be akin to asking DM to neither shout "BEER!" at the top of their
lungs, or, for that matter, quaff a drop of the amber brew.

All other banned items listed are acceptable.

We await your reply.

Lundar Announces 'Brion Meeting


A message from Lundar:

Greetings fellow citizens of Puddleby,

There will be a meeting with the 'Brion Brothers at 10pm on Lundi, the 64th Day of Summer (OOC: 3pm PST Sunday) in Tenebrion's Conference Room. The purpose of the meeting is to settle the last remaining issues concerning the trade of 6 teleportation stones for a permanent portal to the Ethereal Plane, and to answer any questions that exiles may have for the 'Brions. If all goes well with the meeting, the stones will be handed over to the Brothers, and the agreement will be sealed.

This meeting will be open to the public, and all exiles are welcome to attend. All attendees will be expected to act in a respectful and orderly manner throughout the course of the meeting. Disruptive exiles will be asked to leave, or removed from the Conference Room physically. If things become too unruly, representatives will be chosen to help moderate the discussion.

This will be great milestone in our relations with the 'Brion Brothers, marking an increased cooperation with our powerful neighbors. I hope to see many of my fellow exiles there at this meeting, to witness and take part in this truly momentous event in Puddleby History.

Ma'ta Lundar et'Lotharen

Garden Discovered in Orga Village


On an exploratory CoNGA trip to the Orga Village, Elenis Reyav discovered he was able to open a path that previously had not been openable despite many tries. This path led to a small garden area in the same snell. We were unable to locate any additional paths in the garden area but perhaps there is one that requires training in a pathfinding book we haven't yet located. The path to the garden seems to require full training in Giayl's Guide to Hidden Ways.

DM Challenges RC for Dunny


Dwarven Militia has challenged the current reigning Dun'ilsar, Rising Claw, with the following:

1. The Money Hunt.

Both clans will meet at Bart's pub in central Puddleby at the appointed time. All members of both clans, having deposited all their coins in the bank, or disposed of them in some other fashion will leave the pub and attempt to gain as many coins as possible in the next 45 OOC minutes. At the end of the 45 minutes, a count will be made of all the coins that are in the pub. That means that the only coins that will count are those that have been returned to the pub, any coins outside the pub at the end of time will NOT count towards that team's total.

Banned for this contest:
Purgatory Pendants
Gifts from other exiles

2. The Search.

I don't believe that this challenge has been accepted before. Both clans are to meet in Cassia's hut. Having removed from their inventory all building materials, members of both clans have 45 OOC minutes in order to gather all the building materials available. Members have to return to Cassia's hut at the end of the 45 minutes. Only materials inside the hut at the end of time will be counted towards the total. Materials are to be donated to Cassia's building project.

Banned for this contest:
Purchasing materials from other exiles
Purgatory Pendants

As per Dun'ilsar rules Rising Claw has one week to reply with their challenge and one of the decided times (to be posted later).

Speaking for myself, I may protest the banning of puns! Bah!

Today a group visiting the foothills discovered that the Tao of Trillbane, in the cave near the waterfall, is now accessible to those with full training in Giayl's Guide to Hidden Ways. This does not seem to be the next book in the pathfinding series, however, but rather one further along, as none of those with full training in the first book were able to comprehend it. Attempts to locate the second book have thus far been unsuccessful.

New Journals

Here's a list of some of the newer exile journals:







Odesseus says, "Okie, I'm going to ask you a few questions"
(Sabriel nods)
Odesseus says, "I'll try and keep em to the point, and you can answer
them however you want"
(Odesseus smiles)
(Sabriel smiles)
Sabriel is a Sylvan, is female, is a Healer, and is not wearing the
symbol of any clan.
She is holding a moonstone and a wooden shield, and she is wearing a
sunstone, a shiny medallion, a sylphstone ring, what looks like a
closed locket, a healer's shirt, a second-circle healer's skirt, a
pair of shoes and a pair of pearl earrings.
Odesseus asks, "Okie... how long have you been in the Lok'Grotons?"
Sabriel says, "Well, I was exiled.."
(Sabriel smiles)
(Odesseus nods)
Sabriel says, "I don't know how long ago.."
Sabriel says, "A little while though"
(Odesseus scrawls on a piece of parchment)
Sabriel says, "12-14 zodiacs maybe"
Odesseus says, "Ah.."
Odesseus asks, "Why were you exiled?"
Sabriel says, "=/"
Sabriel says, "Well..."
Sabriel says, "I ran a bakery back there"
(Odesseus nods)
Sabriel says, "Somebody, I don't know who"
(Odesseus scribbles some more on the parchment)
Sabriel exclaims, "changed my berries for rotten ones!"
Odesseus exclaims, "Oh, no!"
Odesseus says, ":"<"
Sabriel says, "Yeah"
Odesseus asks, "Then what happened?"
Sabriel says, "7 people got very very ill"
Sabriel says, "1 died... =/"
Sabriel says, "I was exiled without trial"
Odesseus says, "Oh, my! terrible"
Sabriel says, "As harsh as it sounds..."
(Odesseus writes some more)
Sabriel says, "I am almost pleased that it happened"
Odesseus asks, "Umm hmm?"
Sabriel says, "Not for the poor person"
Odesseus asks, "Why is that?"
Sabriel says, "But for the new life I have here"
Odesseus says, "Oh, I see"
(Sabriel looks sad)
Odesseus asks, "So, tell me about how things have been for you here?"
(Sabriel smiles)
Sabriel says, "Very well"
(Odesseus nods)
Sabriel says, "I have found that 'most' exiles are very kind and giving"
Odesseus says, "Ah, good, good"
(Sabriel smiles)
Odesseus asks, "But not all?"
Sabriel says, "No..."
(Odesseus nods)
Sabriel says, "As in all places, some people have to make things..."
(Odesseus scrawls on the parchment)
Sabriel says, "harder."
Sabriel exclaims, "but on the whole I have found the unlikely truth
that most exiled people are very kind!"
(Odesseus nods)
Odesseus says, "Yes, true"
Odesseus says, "Ok..."
Odesseus asks, "What has been the best thing to happen to you since
coming here?"
Sabriel says, "Oh..."
(Odesseus smiles)
Sabriel says, "Well...when I passed 2nd...I was amazed at people
congratulating me"
(Sabriel smiles)
Odesseus asks, "Ha, really?"
Sabriel says, "That has been a highpoint."
(Odesseus smiles)
Odesseus asks, "Any exceptional adventures?"
Sabriel says, "No, well, not any exceptionally good ones..."
Odesseus says, "Ok, fun ones for you"
(Sabriel smiles)
Sabriel says, "Yes, I have had many fun adventures"
Odesseus asks, "Any in particular?"
Sabriel says, "I enjoy luring in the undine hut..."
Odesseus says, "Ah..."
Sabriel says, "I do tend to get everyone killed though =D"
Odesseus says, "Fun place..."
Odesseus exclaims, "Heh!"
Sabriel says, "which is the high point"
(Odesseus laughs)
Sabriel says, "My friends are used to it.."
(Odesseus grins)
Sabriel says, "but a few people who are kind enough to brick for us.."
Sabriel says, "have not been amused"
(Odesseus chuckles)
Odesseus says, "Some people are just too serious."
(Sabriel smiles)
Odesseus asks, "How do you like being a healer?"
(Sabriel smiles)
Sabriel says, "I love it"
(Odesseus nods)
Sabriel says, "I enjoy helping others"
Sabriel says, "I give clothes and stuff to exiles newer then me =)"
Sabriel says, "Healing lets me do this to everyone =)"
Odesseus exclaims, "That's very nice!"
Odesseus asks, "If there was one thing you could tell a new exile,
what would it be?"
Sabriel says, "where the rat towers are =D"
(Odesseus chuckles)
Odesseus asks, "How about older exiles?"
Sabriel says, "No, bad example"
Odesseus says, "OK, new exiles first then"
Sabriel says, "Well.."
Sabriel says, "Something about how alone you are much less then you
are with others"
(Odesseus nods)
Sabriel says, "We all depend on others to get us through life"
Odesseus says, "Ah, true"
Odesseus asks, "and older exiles?"
Sabriel says, "Maybe the same thing"
(Odesseus chuckles)
Sabriel says, "I think it is the most important thing in this world"
Sabriel says, "Other then having fun =)"
(Odesseus nods and writes that down)
Odesseus says, "OK, in keeping with TMN tradition..."
Odesseus says, "You get to ask the interviewer one question."
Sabriel says, "...."
(Odesseus smiles)
Sabriel says, "er..."
Odesseus says, "anything"
Sabriel asks, "How about... What you would tell a new exile?"
Odesseus exclaims, "oh, heh... good question!"
(Sabriel smiles)
Odesseus says, "Well, ummm..."
Odesseus says, "To not be afraid to ask help of others..."
(Sabriel nods)
Odesseus exclaims, "And to get into trouble a lot!"
Sabriel says, "I'll keep that in mind =)"
(Odesseus grins toothily)
(Sabriel smiles)
Odesseus exclaims, "So that old, grey furred fens can come rescue you!"
(Sabriel smiles)
Odesseus says, "Thanks Sabriel, for taking time to talk to me..."

Since being exiled to Puddleby in the year 539, I started to take a
great interest in my surroundings, not least of which so that I could
survive and find my way around safely. It didn't take long for me to
meet many kind exiles, many who helped me to learn my trade and to
gather my thoughts in these new and wonderful surroundings.

After a short while, I started to keep records of my training, my
kills and other such details. You see. I was a statistician back on
the mainland, under the Emperor Mobius, until I became too thorough in
my work. It revealed some of his more shady dealings, and before I
knew it, I was on a boat to Puddleby with many others.

I sometimes spend time on my own studying my books of stats, seeing
how I should vary my training or how many times I've fallen to rats.
It all provides a fascinating insight into my time in Puddleby. So,
I've decided to share some snippets of my books with other exiles.

The first exile I met was Bulfar of the Dwarven Militia, who sadly
isn't seen in the lands much anymore. He's still in the library, I've
been assured. I hunted with many exiles in my early days, but I fondly
remember Ugo Fuxfell and Yor showing me the Tree Giants Breeding
Grounds for the first time (I was a five-day-old exile!). I can also
picture with dread being shown round the Noid caverns by Glaurung,
Tuzar, Goliat and Pookioko. That was a truly terrifying experience as
my skill with an axe at that time was purely for trimming my beard.

Critters Killed:
Vermine 10343
Large vermine 8076
Rats 7908
Oompa Loompa 13
Knight of Ni 3

Bolok Cougar 53
Island Panther 48
Rats 6
Saturnus 3
Mujin-kun 3
Actually I've fallen 1379 times since I've been exiled, that's more
times than I have ranks!

Received 1859
Given 3030

I have shared a total of 1217 exiles in my time.
And luckily for me, my spirit has only departed my body 12 times.

Time Clanning:
The most worrying thing I have discovered is that I have spent close
to 1500 hours out of the library, that's 62 days of RL time!!!

When I look through my tomes of information, I dread to think how many
books would be used to detail the exiles from the Ripture Wars and
before. The mind boggles as to how many vermine they will have killed.

Now I've shared my tomes with you, I hope you've found some of it
interesting. Long-time exiles, if you keep tomes of information
yourselves, I would love to see them sometime. Perhaps you can share
some snippets such as these. Just see me in town if you have anything
for me.

Statistician/Warrior/Pathfinder/Skinner and most importantly BEER
drinker of the Dwarven Militia

Slime Strikes Puddleby


Here are some pics of the slimy creatures that attacked town last night.They were tough! Sometimes a big one would split into two smaller ones, and sometimes two smaller ones would combine into two bigger ones! Some exiles complained that the small ones were hard to hit. I managed to nail most of them, but also took considerable injury. Many exiles fell to them, even strong ones! I ran away a few times, zipping into the liberry to get a quick heal. I tried to round up a few fallens, but my chain broke on first try! Lots have been saying chains are breaking more nowadays. I wonder if the salty air is corroding them faster? Or what?
