Heat Wave Beach Party!

Beach PartyOriginally posted June 24th, 2014 by EM Elizabella on the Great Lakes EM Site:

It’s like a heatwave
Burning in my heart
I can’t keep from crying
It’s tearing me apart

– Martha and the Vandellas, “Heat Wave”


Let’s escape the heat wave and go to the beach! We can fish and stroll along the boardwalk. Surely the water will be cool and refreshing! Nevermind all those rumors of boiling seas and maddened denizens of the deep.

Wear your hottest seaside outfit*! You may catch the eye of beach royalty!

*In which you still have some hope of not taking a “sandnap”.


For the weigh-in, only Spring or Autumn Dragonfish caught June 28, 2014 qualify. The fish may be caught at any time that day. If your fish does not win, you may have it back.

There will be a gate from the Counselor Hall.

MaskOriginally posted June 19th, 2014 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 Friday, June 20th, 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 youngest daughter loves butterflies. The princess longs for the beautiful, rare, cursed Firekissed Lacewing Butterflies, which only flutter in one place in all of Sosaria. When someone gives one of these butterflies to the sultan, he will ask what guild they represent. Be careful though, the butterflies are 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 butterflies. Beware, the destination is not in guard zone.
  • A one-way gate from the throne room in Nujel'm to a basket of butterflies Beware, the destination 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 butterflies will be displayed on a suitable item at the Felucca Award Hall.

Jhelom Navy Repells Incursion by Skara Brae

Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on June 2, 2014 at 10:07 PM CDT
City of Jhelom

From the Governor of Jhelom, Thom Jameison:

The newly formed Navy of the Jhelom Defense Force acquitted itself valiantly today. A ship of the Skara Brae Fishing Fleet was engaged in an illegal search and seizure operation in Jhelom territorial waters. The ship "The Redemption" was loaded with flour and other critically needed items and headed for the suffering city of Jhelom. The Redemption is a Moonglow flagged merchant ship that was dispatched on this mission of mercy by the current Governor of Moonglow Walter Tyrell. After a brief exchange of cannon fire, arrows and magical spells the rogues from Skara Brae withdrew. There were wounded on both sides during the skirmish.

Governor Thom Jameison of Jhelom reports that he has the highest confidence in the righteousness of his cities cause and the strength of his defense forces. Governor Jameison asks the High Council to respond quickly in establishing a survey mission to help resolve the conflict.
