The "Orga Ire"


Ansset sent the following report to TMN:

This is a follow-up report on the orga infestation of the eastern areas from town, which Sativa reported for the 85th day of Summer. We thought we could sense the leader of this new tribe, but we could not reach him. Today, just four days later, during the early morning on the 89th day of the season, drums were once again heard to the east.

Sure enough, with a quick investigation (which left me fallen for a number of hours), many dangerous orga had once again taken hold of the dark east forest near the southern wendecka passes. After some hours of fierce and often-tiring combat, the relatively small but persistent team cleared the orga to the slime cave.

It was here that the orga "ire", as many had taken to calling this orga, had his (her?) last stand. We first tried to communicate with this mysterious figure, though he did not respond well, even when J'nder gave him a back massage to try and soothe his tensions about being faced with so many unknowns. The orga summoned a number of minions to attack us, though not enough to be truly effective. It was then that he revealed some of his other powers; he transformed into an orga wrath, and then into a lightning-shooting shaman. This display of power seemed to have made he weak; he was quickly dispatched by eager fighters at this point.

With that being done, the offending orga were seemingly completely eradicated from the area.

Another important note: during this encounter with this orga leader, I received strong and definite sensations from the waterfall behind the 'ire'. The emanating power from behind the waterfall made it distinctly clear that there is a path of the orga hidden there. I could unfortunately not determine what sort of path that may be; but as of yet, no one has seen or been able to open it.

Hoggle Bears All


Bakunan sent the following report to TMN (possible Ranger spoilers):

Hoggle made a request for all manner of critters to be brought to the zoo, to accompany the grizzly bear that he found. They were to aid him with a Ranger demonstration.

He mentioned that he had a contract with the grizzly, whatever that means. I missed the artak and the two slugs being taken out, but had my visionstone ready for the main match.





You can tell who bet on the honey bear. :-)

Orga Attack


Sativa sent the following report to TMN:

I was relaxing in town center, when suddenly yet another attack from the orga came from the east. In a short amount of time, we could tell from their drum beats that they were from the new tribe. Sure enough, we found our mission was to find the war party leader in the midst of throngs of orga.


We were stopped at the east field bridge for quite some time, but soon were able to break through, and push the orga back further and further.


After hours of battling east and southward, through hordes of Warlocks, Hemlocks, Dredlocks, Furies, Frenzies and more, we cornered them in Gerag's slime cave.


Through my scanning, I was able to find a green orga within the cave, and we can only assume this was the leader. Unfortunately our party so far has failed in our mission, as the cave was filled with Dredlocks, making it impossible to get inside. For now, the green orga is still hiding in the cave. With luck, during another attempt we may be able to find it, and learn more about this mysterious new tribe of orga.

Sfoft's Peak


Super Chicken sent the following report to TMN:

A HUGE group of exiles moved the green portal so that we could jump off the Cloud to get to Sfoft's Peak. Trev and I were the first to land on the peak successfully. When you jump off the Cloud to the peak, you land hard, but it does not take nearly as much Histia to survive the fall from the Cloud to normal ground. Parachutes are for sale for 300 coins from Faleen Sfoft. My last few zodiacs of determination to find this place has paid off!

Borkiron Passes Tests


Borkiron sent the following report to TMN:

Heya Param,

I finally passed my second circle test, using the unfashionable "Zo Method". This proves that you don't have to be a Zo to use it. It's a hard and slow way to pass, but it's the proper way (because if it was the south rat towers, you can't just raise the fallen with the vermine still around, you have to kill them all

Immediately after, I passed the third circle test, though I used the "cheating" method to do so, by just healing without even trying to kill the creatures first. Couldn't pass fourth after that, so it serves me right for cheating.


Thanks to Shaky, who always encouraged me to pass in my own style, and for his gift of a sylphstone ring. And now who's the new strongest first circle healer?

Not sure how many folk will be interested, but anyway, I made a visionstone of the event and it's in the Puddleby visionstone repository at

Bye now,

This be prolly old news, but it were news ta me so here goes.

I were out wanderin around tha Isle o'Contested Ownership or Tha Isle Formally Known as Tenny’s. First tha peculiar thing I found were there were at least 3 separate Sarirs moseyin around. Asked em what they were doin, but they might coulda had an issue with tha phrasin o tha question. Anyways, no response. Then I decided ta go see tha sheeps. So there I were leanin up aginst tha fence tryin ta pet em and thinkin that beer went good with mutton. And I were able ta jump tha fence. Down right peculiar.
