  the trophy. Narrowed down to two remaining suvivors the evil
  Jeldokic fell to the scorching flames of Calgon.

  The Emoted World - by Shadia                             Nations

  (As always, this is OOC..)

     The night sky lights up in torrents of hellfire as the Six
                    burn Iniquity to the ground.

  As many have already heard about the destruction of Iniquity,
  the Ilythiiri (Drow) Hometown, not many, but the Six themselves
  know of the reasons behind behind this plot. The consquences of
  their actions not only destoryed the City, leaving not one, but
  two Nations leaderless. Leaving many to stop and wonder, Why?
  Of course there many answers that to question. Which will not
  be explained in this article. What will be said is that the
  reasons behind this morbid display of humor was not without
  good reason.

  The Six included at the time, Valsharess Shadia Del'drae,
  Ilharess Drakona Del'drae, Phalar Dryden, Salmarissa, daughter
  of the void and Solarius Silver-Moon. It was a very unexpected
  plot that was completed in one night. A very dreadful night.
  Death herself called to them all, and they obeyed willingly,
  with the help of the Daughter. The Pixie Queen, Shelaine lit up
  the shadowed sky with an aray of hellfire and Solarius took bit
  by bit of Lloth's (The Drow's evil Goddess) statue for himself.
  Combining the Six's blood in a river of darkness, the the City
  perished instantly. Leaving nothing, but one building standing,
  The Tales of Conquest. The Six left the City never to return..
  and never to look back...

  The City of Iniquity is consumed by fire as the very legions of
                           hell are released.

  These two Nations are currently having elections for their next
  Nation Leaders. If anyone has questions, feel free to send a tell
  to anyone active within the Nation or check the Noteboard in
  As for the other Nations? Everything is quiet and calm at the
  moment. If anyone wishes me to add anything for next month, please
  mudmail me or send a tell. Anything is welcome.
  Until next time... Shadows Protect.

  Guilds and Orders - by Ganemanoimu                           G+O

  After reading a particular note, I felt that I had to offer my
  own opinion about Guilds and Orders, and how they affect our
  world of the Realms. Personally, I belong to an order and a
  number of guilds, and have for a number of years now so you
  might say my view is a bit biased, but I'll try to remain as
  objective as possible.
  Guilds and Orders all tend to have a group of people dedicated
  to the induction of new members; CoC, IT, IC, CDS, etc., for
  the sake of simplicity, I'm merely going to refer to these
  groups of people as IC's (Induction Councilors).

  The Difference?
  Guilds and Orders do have some fairly significant differences.
  Guilds are all determined by class type, while Orders have
  their own restrictions such as class, align, gender, etc.
  Guilds are mortal-run but do have some assistance from the
  Guild Overseer (currently Ceirana), who assists all of them in
  their needs. Orders have their own deities and often
  assistant deities.
  Guilds are generally made up of people who are newer to the
  game and aren't as committed, while in Orders you may find a
  greater number of hardcore players. While this is true in
  general, I have known Guilds that are far more active or
  involved than Orders and I strongly dislike the idea that
  Guilds are training grounds for Orders.
  Orders/Guilds tend to give as much as you put into them. If
  you're giving nothing, expect nothing in return.

  Getting In.
  Guilds tend to all have the same general process of getting
  in. You talk to a member of their IC, get an interview and
  then assuming you pass that, a quest. There are slight
  variations and you may get an extra quest or two but assuming
  you did all right in your interview, completed your quest on
  time, you'll be inducted. In interviews, they look for people
  who are friendly, active, helpful and will be committed to the
  guild. No-one wants someone who is going to log once in a
  blue moon to make fun of other Guild members. On the same
  note, Orders are also looking for the same kind of people.
  However, because Orders tend to be more selective, they often
  demand reference notes from other people. It also is a great
  asset if you have people already in the order. Why is this?
  It's not simply a form of cronyism or the old-boys-network,
  when there is someone already in the order that can vouch for
  you, there is someone who is there to take responsibility for
  you if you do something wrong. This becomes even more
  important if you dont have reference letters from well known
  people. Plus, there is always a scapegoat if you do get
  kicked out. Orders tend to set more demanding requirements
  and often the entire order will be involved in a voting
  process which will determine whether you're in or out.
  Reputation and your previous accomplishments and problems will
  all be brought into the light.

  Expectations and Demands.
  Most Guilds and Orders have some kind of probation or trial
  period. During this period you're expected to act like an ideal
  member, otherwise risk expulsion at the end of this time
  period. Generally you're expected to act like a representative of
  that Guild/Order in public at all times, and not to embarrass or
  smudge their name. Guilds and orders will both tend to kick you
  out for long periods of inactivity. Mostly it just involves
  being a good citizen of the Realms and helping out your fellow
  Guild/Order-mates when they're in need, and you cant do that if
  you're not even online, so that counts too.

  Choosing One.
  So how do you know where to start? Well, you can view all the
  Guilds and Orders by those respective commands and take a look
  at their basic info. Help map shows all the Guilds, as they
  all have their HQs within DH. Drop in to read their induction
  boards and see how the questing process and such works.
  Most Orders have help files and you can read those at your leisure
  to find out about these organizations. Another good source is
  web pages, where links can be found off the RoD homepage.
  Word-of-mouth is really the strongest advertisement and
  talking to people, especially those who are or have been in
  the order is really beneficial too. Once in a while do a who
   so you know who is part of that organization
  and whether there is anyone there that you particularly like
  or dislike.

  There really isn't a best Order or Guild for everyone because
  they're all very unique. Many focus on different aspects of the
  game, like RP'ing or running. Ultimately, it is about the people
  in these organizations that determine how they are.
  Try to remember that its not just you judging the organization,
  but the organization judging you. If you're a spammy one on
  avtalk and are considered annoying by many people, you may want
  to rethink your habits. You'd be surprised how many people watch
  channels, but dont say very much. Intentionally getting other
  people killed in MKill quests might be fun for you too, but that
  will reflect poorly on your gamemanship and will be considered in
  the end.
  With that in mind, not everyone has to join an organization either.
  Non-orged people have their place in the Realms too, and shouldn't
  be looked over.
  Whatever you do, make sure you pick whats right for you!


  Rants from the Summit - by Ganemanoimu                      RftS

  Not Looking for gold, eq, chars, email me at...
  Ive decided to write my own little column about how I feel about
  some things. I like to think it is my prerogative having played
  this game for a while, an old-timer if you will. Anyway the issue
  I'd like to talk about today is a trend that has been increasing
  because I can barely remember it at all during my younger years.
  Though admittedly, back then, there wasn't even a traffic channel
  and I was always chan -avatar.
  I think the common pitch goes something along the lines of:

  Seth, clan, gloried eq for trade, not looking for gold, eq, chars,
  contact me at or ICQ #123456789.

  They dont say it explicitly, but you know exactly what they mean
  by exclusion. Simply speaking, they want cash, real life cash.
  It galls me to think that people are so openly blatant about it.
  Buyers and sellers should all be deleted.  No one will miss a few
  of the thousands upon thousands of pfiles on this server.
  Officially its illegal and those found involved will be punished
  harshly. Unofficially, it still happens and thousands of dollars
  trade hands.

  You want to talk about balance? This more than any class, race or
  align change messes things up. When a 3-month old newbie walks in
  with gloried clan, what has my years of running and questing meant?
  It is also pathetic, because then that person is saying, I lack
  the skill and patience to earn eq, so I will spend my cash to earn
  it, and essentially buy respect. To me, this ranks even lower than
  gold-diggers, because at least gold-diggers have the patience to
  get someone to believe they love them. Not that eq earns respect or
  that respect can be bought. Generally, if a person has nice eq,
  one thinks "Wow, this person must be a pretty good runner". When
  people show up with this kind of eq, yet you know that they have
  never left DH, the few conclusions to be drawn are never flattering.
  Not that I can really blame the people who sell. Most have played
  their share, done everything they wanted to do, why not make a
  monetary return on the thousands of hours of time they have

  I'd like to point out one anecdote that I'm sure many old-timers
  are familiar with. I'll leave this players name unmentioned though
  most people know it. Needless to say, he chose to purchase a
  rather rare item for a tidy sum of cash. In his continuing wisdom,
  said player chose to place this eq on a deadly char where it was
  promptly looted. This mentioned, his name continues to be a source
  of amusement and a lesson in gross stupidity. As well, the buyer
  runs the risk of having the seller hold out on him. Then who do
  you complain to? The Imms? The police? Hrm, Balzhuring or public
  mockery, and neither choice leaving you with cash or EQ. Talk
  about being stuck between a rock and a hard place.
  Did I forget to mention, that this has happened as well? Well it
  most certainly has.

  Unfortunately, demand breeds supply, not the other way around.
  Those of you out there who do buy, need to realize that while you
  may not be known to Imms, those who do know you know you've hit the
  ultimate low. It's cheap, it's degrading and it's detrimental to
  the moral atmosphere of the mud.


  How to... - by Ganemanoimu                                How To

  How to Get a Mudwife for Christmas!

  So, it's almost Christmas and you're thinking about curling up
  in front of the fireplace on a cold winter night with your little
  ... Uh-oh ... Stuffed plush toy? Blow-up doll? One of your
  lowbie alts? Clearly, this isnt going to work.

  No luck for the last couple years in real life? Looks like it's
  time to hit the mud-dating scene and get yourself a mudwife!

  So how do you begin? Well lets look at the facts.
  A few thousand players, of which a small fraction are actually
  females. An even smaller fraction of them real females.
  You have to make yourself look different, and stand out from the
  crowd. A bit of skill at the game, a dash of sensitivity, a
  pinch of humor and a slathering of buffness.

  Right, so lets start with you. Deck yourself out in your buddy's
  best eq, or even buy eq with that credit card if you're feeling
  really desperate. Brush up on all the latest eq terms.
  Dropping words like DI, bbliv, pgen, will catch the attention of
  any lady gold digger who is overly liberal with her charms.

  Now it's time to hit the town. Drop by Guild/Order hangout
  spots, the lounge, public noteboards, public channels, basically
  anywhere where you can start up a casual conversation. You can
  even try joining some Orders/Guilds or participating in quests to
  meet those elusive girls. Once you meet them, make sure they
  really are girls or risk being the laughing stock of all your

  Since you aren't much of a charmer given your previous successes,
  try to impress her. Drop some big names and casually mention the
  fact that youre well-versed in the deep lore of the game.  You
  can say things to make you seem elite, just dont go overboard
  and start saying things like 'I am the Seth king and have killed
  him 2315235 times since the Shattering!'
  Little lies can slip through, but big ones tend to trip the lie
  Flash some big pieces of eq using the swap command or remove an
  expensive weapon to read a note. Offer to take her on some runs,
  or if she's more of a social creature, just give her some nice eq
  A little humor doesnt hurt either. Just remember that your favorite
  drinking jokes probably aren't going to get you far.

  Let's assume you've managed to slip through that awkward "getting
  to know you" stage and you're getting pretty tight with her now.
  Shower her with little sentimental trinkets like cuddly dragons
  and flowers. Your credit card does have a limit, and you wouldn't
  have to sell your car or something to keep her expensive habits up.
  Plus, your buddy probably will want his eq back sooner or later.
  Throw some lyrics in your bio and keep sappy honey-coated sayings
  in your title.
  Once you're convinced she's serious, pop the  question in some
  romantic room in the starlight.
  Set up your wedding day and get an Imm to help you out so you can
  invite the entire Realms and finish with a nice world echo.
  Then its time to reap the rewards of your new mudwife. Nice arm
  candy, and someone to talk to.
  Now you can see what everyone else has been talking about and what
  the fun really is like.  Not to mention that once its all over,
  you can accidentally go link-dead and avoid that fussy post-coital

  If you somehow muck something up along the way in this flawless
  process, just get another alt and start over. If it gets bad and
  you ever find yourself at a point where you think your heart has
  been broken, just remember that its just text and a game. Plus,
  theres always real life, right?


  The Ideal Christmas Gift - by Alysira                Ideal Gifts

  "On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me..."
  For most of us, this line ends in tradgedy. Unwanted gifts,
  tucked sadly away in a closet, never to see the light of day. I
  for one hate to see poor, neglected gifts, so I set out on a
  mission. I asked many people "What would be your ideal Christmas
  Present?" in the hopes that these wishes may be granted, and
  gifts will no longer go unwanted!

  Meade     - Lots of money :(
  Asmodeous - Cable internet connection *sigh*.
  Sealom    - A pet scorpion named Gandhi.
  Kendron   - The latest, greatest computer, methinks.
  Rialian   - IRL-Wise, I'd really like a laptop :P
  Kali      - I think my ideal Christmas present would be the
              means to give everyone I know everything they
  Nemser    - An end to Religious based wars.
  Edhelaina - I would really like a free new car. Ford
              Lightning sounds about right.
  Skaphia   - The ideal Christmas present, here or IRL, for
              me would be more time in general - because I
              always seem to be short on it :P
  Qex       - Well, there's not a whole lot I want persay,
              but I'm a big fan of candy and fire so just a
              bunch of candy and getting to sit by a warm
              fire just groovin :)
  Beedricks - Most likely to spend Christmas with my family :)

  So there you have it, the wants and needs of many of our dear
  MUD'ers. Let us not forget, that Christmas is a blessed time
  of sharing, loving, and hope, and although gifts are nice, it
  is always the thought that counts ;)

  The Holiday Season - by Simone                          Holidays

  Dear Reader,
  I am sorry to report I do not have a great mystery of life
  solved for you today. I have, during my travels, been entranced
  in a certain phenomenon eminent throughout the realm.

  The shattering has brought vast change, the once stable magical
  flux, now left in much more volatile state. The profound effects
  of this event have reached the heights of the mighty gods, the
  depths of blue oceans, and everything in between. In Darkhaven,
  many of you are lucky, in not having felt the entire brunt of
  the shifting. I can tell you, others were not as lucky.

  As my journies carry me to distant lands, I see once prominent
  and flourishing colonies in a new state of distress. Their way
  of life has been altered like never before. All the creatures,
  birds and aquatic life are dealing with unspeakably harsh odds.

  As I previously mentioned, I am witnessing an interesting
  phenomenon as I observe the changes to the land. This phenomenon
  is none other than a new harmony for these creatures.
  Many should have surely died out in the days following the
  period of the shattering, however they are still present and
  beginning to strive once more.

  Harmony you ask? I've seen a great harmony now between once
  hostile species. They've come to the conclusion that they each
  have qualities and disadvantages, and unless they can put their
  differences aside, everything will be wiped out.

  It is touching to watch new alliances and friendships form. To
  watch the real magic of giving and caring, especially in such
  dire time. Any selfishness or greediness, at this point, have
  been the cause of the demise of select few, however in general,
  by leaning on each other some stabilization is occuring.

  I hope this message of harmony reaches you in time for the
  holiday season and gives you something to think about.

  PS. It looks like the scriptures are going to have some massive
  updates ahead.

  I will not.

  I will never stop fighting
  I will never bow down
  I will never surrender
  I will never shut up
  You can call me 'weirdo'
  Call me stubborn if want
  You can point your finger
  But don't expect me to run
  I won't say that I'm sorry
  If I think otherwise
  I won't say 'Thank you, friend'
  If you don't even try
  I won't ever be smiling
  If I feel bad and sad
  I won't bow before someone
  Just because he's an Imm
  Yell and scream, curse like crazy
  Hate me if you like it so much
  Just never expect me
  To do what I don't want

  I will not.
