TMN Archives: Thoom Staring Contest


Here's another snippet from the TMN Archives, this time from March 9, 2001.

Thooms in Town Center used to select an unsuspecting exile, gather around him or her, and stare until the person would finally freak out and run off. In this case, the victim was Rutabaga.


Featured: Bones, Kensington, Milky, Outcast, Papa, Rutabaga, and Para.

Creed Passes Sixth Circle Test


Creed sent the following report to TMN:

Hail Para!

I have some very exciting news to share. I finally passed the sixth circle test for healers! I'm so happy that many of my friends were out of the library when it happened, too. I was able to show off my new sixth circle/Kizmia Blue pants to them all. :-)



The attached sketches show the aftermath of the test, when I'm still wearing my armor, then a visit I took with several friends to the new area off Greymyr Village. A new creature called the Whipper Wyrm has been discovered there. But really, the most important part is that you can see my new pants! :-)

TMN Archives: Fishing


I've been meaning to post some stuff from the archives lately to mark the recent 10th anniversary of TMN. Here are some images from February 28, 2001. I think these might be from the early days of fishing poles.

Featured: Bones, Para, Rael the Squonk.







Here are a couple more from a fishing derby later that year, on July 18, 2001.
