Thanks to everyone for putting up with all the down times recently. We
regret the inconvenience and the disruptions to your playtime that they
cause. They're not much fun for the immorts either as they interrupt
discussions, work and our playtime too! I'd like to say we've seen the
last of it for a while, but it seems we've got one last hurdle to go.

We also want to say thanks to those of you who helped by logging in on
April 1st and playing around with the new fight skills. We managed to
iron out a few more issues with them before they go live because of that.

We've recently had a lots of changes posted and coming along, please be
sure to bring your questions, comments and concerns to the weekly Q&A
sessions on Thursday evenings at 7pm system time in the OOC Auditorium.
If you can't make a session, there's always the feedback channel where
you can post your questions at any time during the week and read the
answers when the Q&A log for the next Thursday is posted on the web.

If you live where they do Daylight Savings Time, don't forget to set your
clocks ahead an hour now if you didn't do it last night!

Have a great week!

-Kaige

    /\                         CODE UPDATES

   |__|         skill and will be learnable only by Limans. Taint will
    /\          only work on single arrows, but effects on the arrow are
   /  \         permanent until you use it. There will also be at least
  /    \        one mob available to taint things in the future.
 /_    _\    o Inspire/incite will also be learnable only by Limans (yes,
   |  |         we will be offering some skill/practice reimbs, but
   |  |         haven't decided on what all skills yet).
   |  |      o You can no longer meditate while affected with sustain
   |__|        breath skill. Fixes for skill wearing off when exit

  /    \       remove reference of "breath"
 /_    _\    o Some new combat skills for non-mages/non-augmenters --
   |  |        suckerpunch, blindside, retreat, wrestling, and topple.
   |  |      o Minimum perc requirement to all fight skills to discourage
   |  |        -perc characters.

               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

                   New Immortal Announced: Firefly!

Please congratulate Firefly who has joined the imm staff!

Firefly has joined the building staff and will be working on 1600s Japan.

Give her a break when asking for stuff, she's still learning all those
new commands and got a TON of info dumped on her so her head is probably
still swimming.

And thanks to everyone who took the time and put in the effort of
submitting a proposal this round. The next round of applications have a
September 1st deadline. Reading HELP APPLICATION online gives more info.

               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

                Who is Firefly and What is she going to do?

Yet another Dane has joined the immortal staff. Firefly is 26 years old
and is currently finishing her Masters degree in Math and Physics, quite
a feat considering that she's been addicted to LegendMUD since late 1996.

Firefly has joined the building department and will begin working on
bringing Japan as it was around year 1600 to you all. There should be a
little bit for everyone in the area, but focus will be on mid-level
characters. She is looking forward to working on her area and hope you're
half as excited about it as she is.

                   A Statement from Chancellor BrewMoon

I, Brew Moon, a chancellor and former leader of the Red Suns for a
temporary assignment to kill mice around Tara and rats in Tudor England,
have moved on in life and have grown and gained more knowledge experience
and spells. Our small group of fighters have disbanded and I now travel
alone. I look forward to fighting with others to destroy evil and gain
more knowledge.


BrewMoon will no longer be recognized as:
Short: Brew Moon, leader of the 'RedSuns'
Long : An imposing chancellor in white robes rests here making you feel
       uneasy.

but rather as:
Short: the Chancellor Brew Moon
Long : An imposing chancellor in white robes rests here making you feel 
       uneasy.

                         Objection, your honor!

[The following article is written by the author in a out of game context,
and does not try to represent the views of anyone else. Think of it as a
letter to the editor type of thing.]

Hello there fellow legendites. My article is of main concern to what is
happening overseas right now, namely the War on Iraq. I personally
disagree with war, but that is neither here nor there, this article is
not to debate the issue of war, and our various stances on it. What I am
here to address is the growing concern I have about lines between out of
game context being mixed into in game context in reference to the war
that is happening right now. I find it offending to log into legend and
see a character wielding or wearing tools of war that are currently in
use overseas. My beef here is, I'm sure a lot of people who support the
war would be horribly offended if I were to create a Saddam Husein in
game, complete with strings to match, strings that pertain to the war
right now, and perhaps wielding a chemical or biological weapon. I'm sure
there would be plenty of players who would start a large hue and cry
decrying that I shouldn't be allowed to do that at legendmud. The
comparison Im trying to draw here is, what is the point of someone
wielding a Bomb, other than to let others know what their stance on the
war is? Honestly, I log onto to legend so I can have a break from the
struggle and strife of everyday life. These constant reminders of
destruction and sorrow, not to mention the pain inflicted upon families
worldwide, are wearing a little thin with me. I was under the impression
that we are trying to create a friendly environment where players from
all backgrounds and walks of life can feel good about logging in, and
spending time at legendmud. I see this as a black eye on the community,
and I'm sure there are others who support this. I would no sooner string
something like (a burning (insert country here) flag) than fly in the
air, because I know it could offend a lot of players on the mud.  If we
look at legendmud as being a 'history' kind of game, I can't understand
what role a B52 Bomb or cruise missile has in enhancing our gaming
experience, or roleplay. Once again, I state that I believe these items
should be banned and removed from the game in relation to them being
tasteless and offensive to the community. I also want to raise the point
about skewering younger players views towards other races and colors. Our
world has enough guns and bombs, if you want proof, just turn on your
television set. Thank you for taking the time to read my article, and
let's remember a famous line from a song 'If I were the king of the
world, I tell you what I'd do, I'd throw away the war and the guns and
the bombs, and make sweet love to you!'

Dank and dark and smelly.

                    The Seven Circles of the Inferno

The Seven Circles comprise a group of politicians, warriors, sorcerers,
demons, angels, devils, servants, imps, devil worshipers, demon
worshipers, coffee worshipers, and others who exist to further their
personal power and that of the netherworldly realms. Together we stand,
united we conquer, individually we gloat.

Our chief spheres of interest include: World conquest, domination of
economical and political systems, sorcery, souls, general attempts at
making the world a more horrid place for the common man, and, obviously,
a more pleasant place for ourselves.

Among us we desire any entity descended of the infernal realms, as well
as any man or woman who has conducted enough transactions with our realms
as to be commonly recognized as a servant or emissary of netherworldly
forces.

Formed in 2000, the Seven Circles is one of Legend's oldest surviving
role-playing clans. A loosely tied organisation of individualists and
anarchists with a strong sense of fellowship, the clan's membership
averages 13. To join, you need the urge -- if not experience -- to
role-play consistently, whereas pkill ability is optional.

               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

There are currently 16 RP clans and 8 PK clans. This leaves open slots
for eight (8) more clans to form. For more information, read HELP CLAN and
see the clan information list via the CLANS command while logged into the
game. For a basic handbook and reference guide for players interested in
starting and running a clan, we recommend that before you even type FORM,
you visit: http://www.legendmud.org/Reference/gm.html.

                     Playerkilling Tips and Tricks

Hey there, I'm Perigriene, my friends and others who hunt me frequently
call me Peri. I'm making a submission to the Legendary Times in hopes
that I can generate some kind of interest in playerkilling, and also to
get the playerkilling side of legend back into representation in the
legendary times. My point here is to field questions relating to
playerkill matters, questions, comments, or even slanting rants. I
request players with questions about tips or tricks to staying alive
while living thy life as a playerkiller to e-mail me personally at
Tigz_16@excite.com. Each week, I will post a few of the best questions
here in the Legendary Times. So, hey, all the playerkillers out there,
this is a message to you, quit hunting that Peri guy and write up a few
questions I can answer here in this forum. :)

Perigriene (IRA)

               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The Infernals and the Knights of Legend lead the pack this week, tied
with the most active members participating in at least one battle. The
Grendels sank to 3rd place with only a few members out in the field this
week. The Grand Coven, The Panuccis, and the IRA each had one member
accounted for this week. The Syndicate and Hermetic Order remained
unheard from.

               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

In the past week there were 43 pkill-related deaths involving 35
different characters. Of those 35 characters, 20 of them were accept all
at the time. So come on, let's get YOUR name up in lights! We can't
report on it if you don't tell us about it!

If you have you witnessed or committed any glorious or nefarious deeds,
send a short report to us at the LT. If you are looking for a fight,
recruiting, or anything else related to PK (not necessarily PK Clan
related), send it in! It's free AND you'll get a prize token! Be a
celebrity, the envy of all your friends! Tick off your enemies or just
tell your side of the story! The possibilities are endless -- act today!!

                        On The Road With Bass

Imagine going camping in Afghanistan with an all male outlaw motorcycle
gang who forgot to load beer and you have a pretty good idea of my stay
in Melbourne. It was dirty, sweaty, boring and there was no beer! What
kind of place has no beer?

Sure they have a zoo and a university but do they have entertainment? Do
they have women who are not starving or diseased? No!

After only a short time in this city of cess-pits, I realized why this is
not a highly recommended vacation spot. I saw only locals and most of
them looked as if they would gladly move to Agrabah for a life upgrade.

When I finally found The Lucky Nugget, I was so disappointed with the
selection that I stabbed a limping guy in his good leg just for something
to do. They did have a nice painting hanging on the wall though. See, I
try to find the silver lining.

Till next time, keep the dial on ten.
