Beach Party

Beach Party!

The weather is so uncertain, let’s rush to the beach this sunny Saturday afternoon! We can fish and drink icy cool lemonade! Bathing beauties and their beaus will dazzle on the runway in the newest fashions. Pay no attention to rumors of something new on the beach, something bitter, biting, and embattled…

  • For the beach weigh-in, only Autumn Dragonfish caught July 21, 2012 qualify. If it does not win, you may have it back.
  • If you would like to participate in the fashion show, please wear a summery outfit. It does not have to be a swimsuit.
  • There will be a gate from the Counselor Hall.

Time Running Out for Gargoyle Cure

With every tragedy, comes both the do-gooders and the exploiters of said tragedy, and the recent epidemic afflicting the gargoyle race is no exception. When humans first made contact with the gargoyles there were those nay-sayers who said that we'd end up dealing with all of their baggage as well, and they were right. The bulk of the gargoyle race are homeless refugees squatting on the outskirts of the royal city as evil blobs of black jelly pick them off at random. Some cynics say that the situation has improved for these refugees, since the recent pandemic will make more housing available after their current owners shuffle off this mortal coil. But, there are those optimists out there trying to make a difference in finding a cure for this plague. As we speak, brave adventurers are culling the terathan species and worthless slimes for their body parts to be used in alchemaic concoctions to save the afflicted gargoyles. Of course, this activity does not go unprotested, as animal and monster rights activists question the practice of slaughtering one species to preserve another. This usually falls on deaf ears as very few, or rather none outside the activist community care about creepy bugs and mold anyway. And finally, there has been no lack of pioneers peddling bogus cures including aromatherapy and homeopathic remedies. Gargoyle victims of a recent scam complained that they took the lime and the coconut and put them both together as they were instructed , but afterwards they did not feel better as they were promised.

Enchanced Client Class

Submitted by DaKaren on July 13, 2012 at 7:40 PM CDT

Since many in the GLRPC are now using the Enhanced Client, or are attempting to, those of us who have been using it for a long time would like to help the new adopters to get the most of the client. To this end, there will be an in-game EC class (with instruction in vent) on Wednesday, July 18th at 8pm CDT. Meet at the Library of Sosaria/Nameless Rune banner (directly south of the Yew moongate in Trammel).

To effectively participate in this class, you will need to have previously installed the EC as well as Pinco’s UI (installing/patching this UI may take several hours and should be accomplished several days in advance). Please see my forum post for further information and links to videos and Pinco’s user gudes.

Sixth B.A.F. Fundraiser

Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on July 12, 2012 at 5:21 PM CDT
Britannian Armed Forces

From the desk of Grand Marshal Galen Knighthawke:

Saturday, July 14, the High Council's militia, known as the Britannian Armed Forces (B.A.F.), will host another fundraiser for the poor of our realm. Previous fundraisers have been very successful; many have been fed by our efforts.

Meet at 7pm Central/8pm Eastern, on Saturday, 14 July 2012, at the Trinsic Moongate in Trammel.

We are likely to do Champion Spawns in the Ilshenar Facet. Not only is this a good way to make gold for the poor of your city, but you will further show your loyalty to the city you have declared citizenship to. (My understanding, though, is that this method won't work unless you have declared citizenship in a city.)

I expect us to finish two complete Spawns, and expect this to take roughly 60 to 90 minutes.

Grand Marshal of Virtue,
Ministry of Britannian Armed Forces

The key was clenched tightly in his hand as he made his way to the ruins that were left of his masters once great castle; the ramparts had been shattered and burned wreckage lay everywhere, but in his mind’s eye it was all still as it had been, and he found his way towards the area he sought. As he approached he could tell that despite the crazed and lunatic nature of the mobs that had destroyed, sacked, and burned his lords home to the ground, none were able to pierce the heavily ensorcelled and locked compartment that he found underneath a pile of blackened stone. After a few moments of effort, the jester managed to clear the debris from the locked door that once lay hidden beneath an ornate rug, now no doubt adorning some peasants floor. Heckles looked to the lock as he lined up the key, and the glowing runes around it shone brightly for a moment before going out as the similarly enchanted key broke down their own magic. With a rough turn, the deadbolt clacked and he pulled the door open, and he descended into the dark depths of the cellar. As his footsteps echoed along the stairs he withdrew a night sight potion and quaffed a bit of it to allow him to see what still lurked in his masters wine cellar.
