Camp Silver Swan LakeCamp Rugged Hunter MountainThis summer, you’re going to camp! Meet your camp counselors at the Britain Counselor Hall, on Saturday, June 29th, at 8:00 p.m. CDT. Girls will be going to Camp Silver Swan Lake. Boys will be going to Camp Rugged Hunter Mountain. The camps are quite similar in that you have the same chance of being trampled by an angry moose at either.

A Letter from the Governor of Jhelom

Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on June 25, 2013 at 7:22 PM CDT
City of Jhelom

From the desk of the Governor of Jhelom, Alista Laleyan:


Thank you to everyone who came out to vote in the recent election! Since most of the other towns were focused on the various magic-oriented buffs, I thought I'd stay true to the tradition of Jhelom and give melee-type's a little love. Jhelom has made a trade deal with the Maritime guild (which gives a HP Regen buff).

I am allied with the Governors of Minoc and Yew, and the Governor of Yew has extended her hospitality to the other Great Lakes Governors by putting up a bulletin board and a place to lock down an information book and a rune to our in-game mailboxes in her house in NW Luna. (102 o 40' N, 26o 26'W). Please stop by! It is the "Britannian Consulate and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Luna Office".

If any Jhelom citizens would like a title, or have ideas or concerns they would like brought to King Blackthorn at the June 28th Council Meeting, please feel free to drop me a message in my mailbox, or write a note on the bulletin board in Luna. My mailbox is located at the Royal Oaks Tavern in Newcastle Township, and there is a rune to it at the Britannian Consulate and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Luna Office.

A Letter from the Governor of Minoc

Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on June 24, 2013 at 8:39 PM CDT
City of Minoc

From the desk of the Governor of Minoc, Tanda Knighthawke:

Merry Meet and Blessed Be Citizens of Minoc,

I would like to thank all who voted during the election! I am honored that you chose to me to represent you upon King Blackthorns Council. I welcome your comments and input regarding the city. Some of you may know that I reside in a castle out in the box canyon north of Minoc, it is also the Majestic Oaks Library, feel free to look me up.

Minoc traditionally a non-magical city the city represents the virtue of Sacrifice and is a tinker’s city. I am a white witch thus a few theories in may have changed. The city current has a trade deal with the Merchants Association granting a +2MR buff. This buff can be utilized every 24 hours by clicking in the city stone. Donations to the treasury can be done via the Town Crier next to the stone, (either in check or coin form) HOWEVER that balance will be decreased daily by 5% on every gold crown above 10,000 to cover city services.

The first meeting of King Blackthorn’s Council will be June 28th at 8 p.m. Central Standard time in the Council room in the lower level of his castle. It is my hope that this meeting will allow us to get a better understanding of what these city services are. The public is welcome to attend this meeting and I encourage you to do so.

As Governor I will be granting titles to citizens upon their request, look for the bulletin board in the castle to submit a request or leave a book in my mailbox.

Look for an announcement of a celebration to be held at the Grotto in Minoc, with free ale for all.

City of Yew

From the desk of the Governor of Yew, Duchess Willa of the Yew-wood:

Dearest Citizens of Yew and Friends,

Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who came out and voted, thank you for supporting your community! I have already made a trade deal with the Guild of Arcane Arts, so anytime you would like to receive the benefits of that deal please visit the town stone in front of Empath Abbey. (A 5%SDI bonus will be bestowed upon you by clicking on the stone and choosing Utilize Trade Deal. You will need to renew this bonus daily.) If you have any reason to suggest we change this deal, it will be on a majority rules basis.

As I am your voice to King Blackthorn, please let me know if there is anything I might do for you or our city. Feel free to drop me a line with your suggestions, ideas or needs at my home near the Yew Moongate: The Yew-wood Forest Theatre. You can find it by walking just southeast from the Moongate and looking in the large clearing there. It’s the large wooden building with the big Y.E.W. on the roof. Feel free to drop me a letter in my mailbox, or utilize the message board. (You may also travel to my theatre via the Luna Teleport Hub by utilizing the Library of Sosaria Complex teleporter and walking east to the clearing, the Theatre is on the northern edge. You may also ask for me in global chat, or PM me on Stratics. You can also message me via the GLRPC forums, by visiting http://gl.uorpc.net.)

The Yew MilitiaSecondly, I want to invite you all to a feast that Polynikes of Yew and I are holding in honor of our son’s homecoming. Come join us in welcoming home our son Leif with good local food and drink. We’ll be hosting this homecoming celebration in the Yew Militia Headquarters located on the north side of the Yew Stables and sheep pen just south of the Yew Abbey, on Monday June the 24th, at 08:00PM under the central stars.

I have many grand ideas and plans for our great city and I hope to serve you well.

Festival of Masks

Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on June 13, 2013 at 6:37 PM CDT

Nujel'm Festival of Masks

Originally posted June 11th, 2013 by EM Elizabella on the Great Lakes EM Site:

The Sultan of Nujel’m invites all to his island for the annual Festival of Masks on Saturday, June 15th, at 8:00 p.m. CDT. This will be a lighthearted street party with food, drinks, and shameless thievery. Please wear a mask and pretend not to recognize anyone else who is wearing a mask.

“The Game” will be played. The goal is to figure out who in Nujel’m has the Eye of Dahsk. Then steal the gem and return it to the sultan. To steal the jewel, your character must be a member of the Thieves’ Guild.

This year, the sultan has another request. His newest wife longs for a perfume made from fragrant, rare, cursed flowers that grow in only one garden in all of Sosaria. When someone hands one of these flowers to the sultan, he will ask what guild they represent. Be careful though, the garden is in a dangerous area, far from the town guards!

You can recall or sail to Nujel’m for the Festival of Masks and The Game. There will also be:

  • A gate near the Felucca Brit. Moongate directly into Nujel’m, a guard zone.
  • A one-way gate near the Buc’s Den moongate to a basket of the flowers. Beware, the garden is not in guard zone.
  • A one-way gate from the throne room in Nujel’m to a basket of the flowers. Beware, the garden is not in guard zone.

Reward – The name of the first person to return the Eye of Dahsk to the sultan will be displayed on a suitable item at the Felucca Award Hall. The name and abbreviation of the guild that brings back the most flowers will be displayed on a suitable item at the Felucca Award Hall.
