New Fundin Hunt Announcement


Fundin sent this announcement to TMN:

I have planned 2 more trips to the foothills.


1. The first is a weekend one for Europe, the U.S., and the rest of the world too. Hopefully, all might be able to make this. Elenis will be leading. I'm working on a new tactic for this trip with Elenis and Yor. It will take place on Sunday, November 16, 2003. We will meet in the town center 10 minutes beforehand, and we will leave as promptly as we can. This might change, so please hang around town until I sunstone an announcement.

We will be meeting at:
6:30pm GMT/UTC
7:30pm/19:30 CET (Central European Time) (+1)
1:30pm EST (Eastern Standard Time) (-5)
12:30pm CST (Central Standard Time) (-6)
10:30am PST (Pacific Standard Time) (-8)

2. The next midweek hunt will be in November some time. This trip will NOT be going to the Pitch Cave. I'm giving that area a rest. We will be exploring around the Foothills and surrounding areas. I'm trying this option to make the trip a bit more fun rather than a "sit around" type of hunt, which got a bit boring last time for many. Yor will lead (I think) and the date is to be announced.

Minis and an Albino Maha


Mala of the Order of the Mini sent TMN the following report:

"The Order of the Mini was out hunting in South Forest, discussing important matters like sunstone tuning, shopping, and fashion. Eventually, we found ourselves looking at gold skirts and started heading home, dreaming about buying one. Suddenly, the air was filled with growls and the ground rumbled under a hundred charging paws. Dozens of Artak Cougars were upon us, and we barely made it to the hospital alive. More fell, as Island Panthers and other kitties covered the snell, in what seemed a giant exile hunt. And then, its white mane flashing among hundreds of dark furs, appeared an Albino Maha! What a rare sighting!

"Exiles had already started coming to our rescue, and more arrived as the last beasts were slain and the Albino Maha cornered. It fought fiercely but fell fast. Then Benylin scooped its pelt and generously offered us all to roll dice for it. Caesia was the lucky winner, and we subsequently sold the pelt for the profit of all Minis.

"There will probably be a Mini Party thrown in too, so keep your ears open!"

Portal Not All That Useful?


Azriel has a report on the Portal War and the Foothills Expedition. Azriel points out that the portal turned out to not be particularly useful for the expedition anyway.

Posted by Para at 11:42 PM
Klur in Jail


Klur has been convicted in Puddleby Court. Details are still coming in on this story.


Read below for a report and opinion piece from Fundin, an organizer of the Foothills Expedition and use of the portals that Klur and others intend to disrupt.

"The battle for the portal began just as Zorton was about to leave and I was sleeping. A very exciting moment I have to say, considering Zorton had been hanging round with Valtrim guarding the portal for hours, and I was sleeping with one eye open ready to help. We were getting a tad bored waiting for Klur to make his move, and we knew he would...

So as we sat there, I saw Klur exit the library, 'uh oh' I said to Zorton, followed by Malkor, Reye and Baff it could only mean one thing. Klur, Malkor, Reye, Baff, and Grrr came running into Falinea's gardens with Grrr on a chain, how odd we thought, with Klur and Baff being healers! Now that’s recipe for moving the portals if I ever saw one, and no denying it.

So the warning sunstone messages went up and exiles tried to help. Unfortunately, Malkor had decided to surround the entrance to the gardens with Ethereal portals, so only those in the gardens, including myself, Zorton and Valtrim could help, Mephisto, Sabbit and Gorvin (who were hunting on KI heading back through the portal) as did one other exile whose name escapes me (sorry).

After some pushing and pulling, they chained Grrr through to KI. I wasn’t exactly sure of their plan but exiles rushed to the courts to try and sue Klur for sabotage of a pre-planned hunt. The first case went ok, considering we had 4 on the jury, 2 PM, Malkor and Baff, and two others, Mephisto and Slyph. Klur was found guilty after protesting his innocence with some waffle about them being dangerous for exiles (why did he use them on Noth then! One rule for us, another for Klur).

By this point I was running dangerously short of time, Klur and his cronies being the cowards they are had picked possibly the best time they could for themselves, and the worst time for everyone else. What do I mean by this, well they decided to attempt their portal horking exercise at 8.40 BST (7.40BST) a time when most US clanners are just heading to bed and most European clanners are at work, and the rest of the world clanners were few and far between.

I see this as a BLATANT act of cowardice and a snivelling backstabbing way to conduct a ‘war’ as its been labelled, then again we expected nothing less from Klur and his cronies so there you go. Let's take a look into the mind of Klur for a moment. 'I know' thinks Klur, 'as I know everyone apart from a tiny majority of exiles is against me and my viewpoint, if I clan at the time when there’s hardly any exiles, and bring my lackeys with me then the plan shouldn’t fail. I know most of the US clanners won't be able to outstay us by keeping awake (being west coast) and the European clanners all have to work.'

Nice plan I have to say, undoubtedly the underhanded tactics we’d have expected from you. With all the balls in the portal horkers court, we expected to have a major problem stopping you from taking it. Now that you have, expect no mercy whenever you plan to use the portal for anything, I, for one, wished I lived west coast US (OOC) so I could spend more time harassing you.

Standing by your views is one thing, doing it when there’s no-one around to contradict you is another, its almost like you were embarrassed or scared to face us when we were all in Puddleby. Low, very low…"

Portal Movement


Norm reports to TMN:

"At the moment, Klur and his PM buddies are moving the green portal. The purple one is still in Falinea's Garden, but Mai only knows where they are going to put either of the portals."

Upcoming Foothills Trip


Fundin sent this announcement to TMN:


For this week's Foothills trip, we will be moving the PURPLE portal to Camp Dred (and possibly beyond) for the duration of the trip. When the trip is over we will move the purple portal back to Falinea's Garden. So expect the purple portal to be in the Foothills on Thursday, October 23 from roughly:

Noon EDT to 8 PM EDT
6 PM CEST - 2 AM CEST (Central European Summer Time) (+2)

Those attending the trip are still expected to be on time, those times being:

5:30pm GMT/UTC
6:30pm BST (British Summer Time) (+1)
7:30pm/19:30 CEST (Central European Summer Time) (+2)
1:30pm EDT (Eastern Daylight time) (-4)
12:30pm CDT (Central Daylight Time) (-5)
10:30am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) (-7)

Please make sure you read the tactics page and the rest of my information so you know what's going on:

Because we will be using the portals, those attending can simply meet in Camp Dred by taking the green portal (in Falinea's Garden) to the purple portal (in Camp Dred) OR by taking the purple mirror in the Cloud to the purple portal (in Camp Dred). Please wait in Camp Dred until the trip starts. Do not wander away and get killed.

Once the trip gets going, we *might* drag the purple portal with us to the Noids areas so late arrivals can catch up and badly fallens can be brought back to town for healing if necessary. If you are a late arrival, please sunstone me to see if the purple portal is in a position where you can catch up.

Finally, we ask that nobody interfere with the portals during the brief period of time we will be using them. They will be returned to Falinea's Garden after the trip. Thank you.

"H'loi Paramedic!

I'm happy to report that I've been rescued! I managed to escape my orga captors briefly, and Zorton managed to gather a party to come to my rescue in the Orga Village. The beginning of the story is at http://homepage.mac.com/wangahrah/orgastory.html, and as I find more information out about my impersonator, Waga Rah, I will keep the exile community informed. I've managed to bring a few orga glyphs back with me, and hope to use this Orgetta Stone as the key to deciphering their language and secrets. Most dire, however, are the indications I've found that Bartok is back...we'll see what turns up.

"Before the Ethereal flotsam had been properly put away, Melabrion's presence was no longer felt. Perhaps he had plugged the source.

Orga Invasion and a New Orga


Kani submitted the following report to TMN:

"Today there was an orga invasion of town. A Frenzy and several Dreadlocks appeared, along with with assorted smaller orga, including a large amount of Zealots. Some of the orgas managed to infiltrate the temple, but town was quickly regained. It was noted that there were no orgas in East Field.


"Orga Camp was another matter, and it took many hours for us to clear it of the bigger orga (and rescue those exiles that had fallen). As we worked to clear Orga Camp, we were startled by the discovery of a new breed of orga.

"The Orga Razzia possesses some qualities making it unique from other orgas. This orga seems like an Orga Anger and an Orga Zealot rolled into one. In addition to having more health and detha than your regular Zealot, it can pull exiles. It also can chain exiles, if it so desires (Zorton and Garpy found this out the hard way). Three of the first five Orga Razzias dropped Stout Chains, one of which Cronos picked up. My theory is that a Stout Chain wouldn't slip when dragging things through webs.

"The smiths were consulted, but as of yet they haven't yielded any ideas as to how we in Puddleby would be able to make additional Stout Chains."

"I've always wondered what the redecorating was about, if there was perhaps some extension planned for that room. One thing I think the clanhouse lacks is a registry that you can consult: a tome in which you could look up the members of a clan. They are, after all, registered in that building so they must keep a record of it."

SDC Defeats WoD in Dun'ilsar


Sor sent the following report to TMN:

"Challenged by the Sun Dragon Clan, Winds of Dawn proposed and chose a new 'Hide and Seek' challenge. Seven 'hiders,' independent from both clans, had an allotted time to hide in safe places anywhere within Puddleby Island. When time ran out, both clans scattered to roam the island and check all the places they could. The use of Mystic skristals was forbidden. Only the first seeker to pull each hider would score for his or her clan, and 4 points were needed for victory. SDC quickly took a lead with 2-0, but there was a bit of confusion when hiders came out of their places while the referee had not acknowledged SDC's 4th victory pull. The final score of 4 to 1 was eventually announced and we all gathered in town for snacks and refreshments. It was a fun and exciting contest, done in a friendly competing spirit!

"Please feel free to tell other exiles who'd like to come that there will not be any restrictions on exiles. However, we were short of boosting mystics as the 2 I had lined up had to drop out, so any boosters please feel free to come along; there will be lots of shares. Also, we almost ran out of Zu last time, so please start farming!

"This time we will be going to the Foothills via the Grotto Trainers for those who wanted to go last trip and couldn't.

"Please take time to read the information section as it contains many notes on the pitch cave 'Dos and Don'ts.'

PTF Takes Pitch Noids Cave


Drablak sent TMN the following report:

"Last Monday, PTF accomplished quite an exploit. With the help of a few other exiles, PTF took control of the Pitch Noids Cave, thanks to a successful strategy laid out by Yor and Natas.

"We made it to the entrance to the cave in a record 45 minutes, thanks to Zorton, and then had a smooth stroll through Dredwood, the Orga Stronghold, then the Malachite Lair, and then proceeded to enter the cave. After an initial run that failed, we tried a second time to zu the noids away from the entrance, and this time we succeeded.

"With our healers rodding the sticky webs thrown by the noids, we took on the critters one by one, and when we could we made chain runs to gather our fallen comrades.

"Although the noids threatened us a few times, we were always able to re-establish our position, and we never had to retreat from the cave. After only 2.5 hours, a score of exiles stood in the middle of the pitch noids cavern, with all the foes vanquished!

"Then, sadly, just as we were about to move towards the pathfinders' book, a rather suspicious massive spawn of albino noids appeared amidst the group. A few made it out of the cave but were then overwhelmed there as well.

"Even though the expedition finished on a sad note, a group of exiles stood victorious in the Pitch Noids Cave!"

I wanted to send along some sketches of Zorton porting the group for those who may not have seen that sort of thing before. Sadly, Yor and his chain gang did not port the first time because the target was too full, I guess, but brave Zorton departed and brought Yor and company on the second try. Porting is a super useful skill, I think. I wish there were more people that did it like Zorton (and that actually clan!). It allowed me to explore the Foothills again for a while without having to dedicate hours to it. Thanks to Zorton, Yor, Gurgi and the rest who made this trip possible!"
