Day 12 Event - Revived Memories


Recommended Posts

On the 12th day of the Anniversary I will be hosting the Revived Memories event at the Great Hall of the Sun, from 11:30 to 15:00 game time.
Players will be invited to share their fondest memories of their time in the realm. Understanding people have other commitments and can't be on MD all the time, you can ask a proxy to recount your story.

At the conclusion of the event the log will be taken and posted in this thread. Individual stories will be posted as separate replies to this topic and the community will be invited to vote on which stories they feel are the best (Only upvotes will be counted). At the end of Day 15 the votes will be counted and recorded.

On top of any prizes provided to participants as an Anniversary event, I will personally be providing a 6th Anniversary Aramor and a 9th Anniversary Aramor, and if there are a sufficient number of high quality stories this may expand upto at maximum three 6th Anniversary Aramours and two 9th Anniversary Aramours.
Users with the highest voted stories will be allowed to chose which type of Aramor they would like, starting with the highest voted and descending until I run out of Aramors I'm willing to part with.

[25/04/22 03:27] :Else passes a note to Fyrd Argentus
[25/04/22 05:24] :Mallos passed Toy Skateboard to redneck
[25/04/22 07:01] redneck:Thanks
[25/04/22 08:30] :Aia updates the rhyme in this scene
[25/04/22 11:01] Chewett:Morning!
[25/04/22 11:20] Else:Morning Chewett
[25/04/22 11:30] Kyphis:Hello Else
[25/04/22 11:30] Chewett:And what a terrible morning it is!
[25/04/22 11:31] Else:Hello Kyphis
[25/04/22 11:31] Kyphis:Hello Chewett
[25/04/22 11:32] Kyphis:Well, it's good to see so many people awake for the Revived Memories event
[25/04/22 11:32] Chewett:I am not sure if they are awake, or pretending to be awake!
[25/04/22 11:33] Chewett:Regardless a log will be good to read I am sure
[25/04/22 11:33] Kyphis:I thought to open the event I'd share my own fondest memory from my time in the realm - as well as an extra challenge and prize regarding my second fondest memory...
[25/04/22 11:34] Kyphis:A long time ago, when MD (and myself) were far younger, there was a player named Burns
[25/04/22 11:34] :Else looks at Kyphis
[25/04/22 11:35] Kyphis:He ran a Vampire themed quest where players could earn a special creature from Necrovion
[25/04/22 11:35] :Ledah sneezes
[25/04/22 11:35] Kyphis:I was still a new player, and was surprised that Burns invited me to assist with his quest
[25/04/22 11:36] Kyphis:He asked me to help point players to the next clue in his quest, and gave me freedom to set whatever challenge I wished for them
[25/04/22 11:37] Kyphis:As an aspiring Bard, I created a song for the quest participants to listen to, and a riddle to go with the song
[25/04/22 11:38] Kyphis:And now, so almost a decade and a half later, I will perform that song again...
[25/04/22 11:38] :Kyphis sets his guitar, and begins to play "Berzerkers Lament"
[25/04/22 11:38] Kyphis:To our land/The Shadow comes
[25/04/22 11:38] Kyphis:Not with fire/Nor with drums
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Yet in the land/Of wisest Sage
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:The Shadow roars/And spreads its rage
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever onwards,/Shadow crawl
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever louder,/The battle call
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:At the heart/Of all the land
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Berzerkers fought/And made their stand
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Many fell/From sides of each
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:But victory/Lay far from reach
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever onwards,/Shadow crawl
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever louder,/The battle call
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:In the Shadow/Berzerkers wait
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Tortured ever,/Denied the gate
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:But the land/Still tells their story
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:In its tears/Of Death and Glory
[25/04/22 11:40] :Kyphis lets the chords fade, then sets his guitar down again
[25/04/22 11:40] :Chewett claps
[25/04/22 11:40] :Kyphis sighs
[25/04/22 11:40] :Else wonders what the answer is
[25/04/22 11:40] :Valoryn claps
[25/04/22 11:40] Kyphis:I do miss that quest; Burns was quite fun to work with
[25/04/22 11:41] :Kyphis smiles
[25/04/22 11:41] Kyphis:And now, a challenge:
[25/04/22 11:41] :Kyphis reaches into his pack, and pulls out a small knife
[25/04/22 11:42] Kyphis:This Boning Knife is unique in this land
[25/04/22 11:43] Kyphis:I received it as a surprise after months of daily roleplay, and had no idea it was going to materialise
[25/04/22 11:43] Kyphis:There are, I'm sure, plenty of you who know what that roleplay was. My challenge, to those who are here, is to tell me...
[25/04/22 11:44] Kyphis:Why was I doing this roleplay in the first place?
[25/04/22 11:44] Chewett:Hmmmmm
[25/04/22 11:44] Chewett:Memory fades...
[25/04/22 11:44] Kyphis:If anyone can tell me before the event closes, I will gift you the Knife.
[25/04/22 11:45] :Kyphis squares the Boning knife on the side of the lectern, and steps down
[25/04/22 11:45] Else: (mind pasting its description? I cant see it in my screen)
[25/04/22 11:45] Kyphis:So, is there anyone here who wants to present next?
[25/04/22 11:45] Chewett:I certainly do not have recollection of it so wish others well!
[25/04/22 11:45] Else:I would like to go next
[25/04/22 11:46] Kyphis: (Used to remove bones from cuts of meat. A thin knife with a flexible blade allowing it to reach small spaces. Often used for filleting fish or poultry)
[25/04/22 11:46] Else:I might not be the best at story telling (curious since I am from LS) but I would like to share some memories
[25/04/22 11:47] Else:If I remember correctly these events took place in year 5 of MD,
[25/04/22 11:47] Else:I remember coming back to the realm after a few years of inactivity.
[25/04/22 11:47] Else:As I achieved MP5 before leaving the realm the last time I was kind of a new MP5 and struggled a lot to get wins againts most players.
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:One day I was wandering around MDA and found a group of players in the Golden Globe Gazebo Interior
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:better known as the GGG or the MR Training Grounds,
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:back then I did not know about its rules so I proceeded to attack them for some wins.
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:After a while they invited me to train with them and explained the GGG rules to me.
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:The few names I can remember are Asterdai, Buster, Spartiatis and Manda.
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:I was getting along with them as we kept training,
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:even one day Asterdai offered me an angien egg for one silver coin,
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:after I told him I had none,
[25/04/22 11:50] Chewett:What a kind gift
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:he gave me the egg for free and even one silver coin.
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:To the date it is still my oldest angien.
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:Everything seemed to go well until Eon arrived to ruin our fun,
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:we went to the Land of the East to train in peace.
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:Back then most players had like 200-300 max AP,
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:each step in the LotE took 80 AP and there were no land loyalty or land affinity mechanics,
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:it definitely took a while to get to our place,
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:but Eon kept arriving to our place despite Chewett sending him back to Gazebo of Equilibrium continuously.
[25/04/22 11:51] :Chewett coughs
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:It was kind of fun playing hide and seek for a while
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:This kept on going...
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:until I decided to take a break from the realm again.
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:I still feel this story is inconclusive, sadly my old friends are not longer here
[25/04/22 11:53] Else:But now more than 10 years later I still keep the good memories from back then...
[25/04/22 11:53] Else: (Thanks for listening or reading)
[25/04/22 11:54] :Chewett claps
[25/04/22 11:54] :Kyphis smiles and claps
[25/04/22 11:54] Else:I hope you found it interesting
[25/04/22 11:55] :Chewett nods enthusiastically
[25/04/22 11:55] Kyphis:I miss Eon. I used to train at the GGG as well, but I remember when Eon and dst decided to put an end to it their argument was very convincing (although I don't agree with the methods they used)
[25/04/22 11:56] Chewett:Was their argument force? *chuckles*
[25/04/22 11:56] Kyphis:Certainly not as much force as Mur has been known to Show on occasion!
[25/04/22 11:57] Else: (I still dont stand a chance against them... but at least now I have some tools to stop them temporarily)
[25/04/22 11:58] Else: (I am leaving since it is really late or really early here xD but I would like to make a blind shot to your challenge, I would say you role played just for the joy of it :D )
[25/04/22 11:59] Kyphis: (It's a worthwhile guess, and while not wrong it's also not as correct as I'd expect, sadly)
[25/04/22 11:59] :Kyphis on seeing that Else has stepped away from the lectern, looks around at the crowd
[25/04/22 11:59] Kyphis:Is anyone here wanting to present next?
[25/04/22 12:00] Chewett:I can say a few words if you do not mind
[25/04/22 12:00] :Kyphis gestures for Chewett to by all means take the stand
[25/04/22 12:00] :Chewett Considers the value of the stand and wonders if it could be sold for much
[25/04/22 12:01] :Chewett Decides to leave the stand there
[25/04/22 12:01] :Chewett moves up to the stand
[25/04/22 12:01] Kyphis: (:P)
[25/04/22 12:01] Chewett:People can sometimes associate length of time in a place to mean impact.
[25/04/22 12:02] Chewett:Actually what I have seen is that you can be somewhere a very long time and have no impact at all.
[25/04/22 12:03] Chewett:Here actually it is not the time you spend, but the people you affect that matters most.
[25/04/22 12:03] Chewett:Some of our dearest friends have been with us for a short time, but impacted us the most.
[25/04/22 12:03] Chewett:So while I have many memories, many of them are not lengthy in nature
[25/04/22 12:04] Chewett:They are the odd little quirks people had, the chance meetings, the whispered plan
[25/04/22 12:05] Chewett:So really my memory is the friends, the people I have been able to chat, live, and work alongside
[25/04/22 12:05] Chewett:There are too many to name, but many of them are also here now
[25/04/22 12:05] Chewett: (Apart from the troublesome Ledah obviously)
[25/04/22 12:05] :Ledah nods sagely
[25/04/22 12:06] Chewett:Memories make you think back, to the things we have done, and look forward to the things we might do
[25/04/22 12:06] Chewett:One of the most core memories in MagicDuel is the founding of SoE.
[25/04/22 12:06] Chewett:It was a rather crazed time of heat gathering, plotting, and planning.
[25/04/22 12:07] Chewett:That was where I then became an honorary archives member, where Ren and my paths diverged.
[25/04/22 12:07] Chewett:We both worked on attaining SoE, however he went into the dusty archives (less dusty then) to continue his research, and I continued mine in SoE.
[25/04/22 12:08] Chewett:My takeaway from the rambling here is, treasure the present, you don't know how long it might last.
[25/04/22 12:08] Chewett:And that maybe it is time for a final bow
[25/04/22 12:08] :Chewett bows
[25/04/22 12:09] :Kyphis claps, smiling
[25/04/22 12:11] Kyphis:If that was your way of tendering your resignation I believe there are going to be a lot of panicked and lamenting people around!
[25/04/22 12:11] Ledah:I demand more stories!
[25/04/22 12:11] Chewett:Ah well, perhaps it is time.
[25/04/22 12:12] Kyphis:It was good to hear a story from before my own time in MD. I might not have joined long after the game we know now was launched, but it's easy to forget that MD existed before then
[25/04/22 12:12] Kyphis:And so very, very much happened in the first few years
[25/04/22 12:13] :Kyphis turns to Ledah
[25/04/22 12:14] Kyphis:Don't demand what you aren't willing to give yourself - are you prepared to share your own memory?
[25/04/22 12:15] Ledah:Hmm but do I remember anything...!
[25/04/22 12:15] Chewett:Thats a nice Alliance you have there Ledah
[25/04/22 12:16] Chewett:I wonder how that happened? *sticks his tongue out*
[25/04/22 12:16] Kyphis: (just by your active days alone you've been in the realm for 14 and a quarter years, Chewett)
[25/04/22 12:16] Ledah:Ah yes!
[25/04/22 12:16] Chewett: (What a terrible terrible waste of time)
[25/04/22 12:16] Ledah:I think phan invited me in, he liked the cut of my jib, so to speak
[25/04/22 12:16] Ledah:How very... trusting
[25/04/22 12:17] Chewett:See
[25/04/22 12:17] Chewett:The amusing thing was that I was also thinking clearly he is too trusting!
[25/04/22 12:17] Ledah:We are thinking along the same lines!
[25/04/22 12:17] Ledah:Fwahaha
[25/04/22 12:17] Ledah:But speaking of, as I recall he is a lover of.... Bob
[25/04/22 12:18] Ledah:It has made me remember the TRUE origins to my desire to see that twig burn!
[25/04/22 12:19] Ledah:Yes, it was a lovely day, quite warm as I recall... as I went on my daily stroll I saw the most wonderful colours at the Path of Loneliness...
[25/04/22 12:19] Ledah:Everybody was in awe, how wonderful they said - look at the colours!
[25/04/22 12:19] Ledah:Fools!
[25/04/22 12:20] Ledah:I vowed that day to crush that blasted colourful twig... from playing games with a talkative goat to using up endless amounts of fire starters... it seems one day I had done it...
[25/04/22 12:20] Chewett:Fools, surely not!
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:Fools I say!
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:So foolish that even after I briefly succeeded they brought the blasted thing back!
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:Those were good times
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:Of course, now you never see it bloom... so who was right in the end?!?!
[25/04/22 12:22] Ledah:Me, potentially
[25/04/22 12:23] Chewett:Maybe
[25/04/22 12:23] Ledah:Oh yes, I should say that was the end of my wonderful story
[25/04/22 12:23] Chewett:I heard a rumour that the "blooming" thing might return
[25/04/22 12:23] Ledah:No... surely not!
[25/04/22 12:23] Chewett:Utter speculation however!
[25/04/22 12:23] Ledah:Delicious speculation
[25/04/22 12:24] :Kyphis chuckles
[25/04/22 12:25] Kyphis:It almost has me tempted to incite a blooming this anniversary... but not quite, that is a lot of effort and I have so very little time...
[25/04/22 12:25] :Ledah adds Kyphis to... THE LIST
[25/04/22 12:25] :Chewett writes down blooming onto his list
[25/04/22 12:26] Ledah:Hmm... your list is bigger than mine...!
[25/04/22 12:27] Chewett:I believe Sire, the list is larger than most manuscripts!
[25/04/22 12:27] Kyphis:It's not size, but quality that matters
[25/04/22 12:27] :Kyphis peeks at Ledah's list
[25/04/22 12:27] :Ledah nods sagely
[25/04/22 12:27] Kyphis:Alas, Chewett has you beat in this department as well
[25/04/22 12:27] Ledah:You are both wise!
[25/04/22 12:27] Chewett:Did you know the origin of the word manuscript Ledah?
[25/04/22 12:27] Ledah:Did you not see my recipe for a toast sandwich Kyphis?
[25/04/22 12:28] Chewett:It comes from the olde word "manu script"
[25/04/22 12:28] Ledah:Manu script...!
[25/04/22 12:28] Chewett:It is a script written by manu, someone well known for writing such verbose scripts that boggled the mind
[25/04/22 12:28] Chewett:Hence the word we use now, manuscript
[25/04/22 12:28] Chewett:Typically these are quite lenghty!
[25/04/22 12:28] :Ledah makes a note on his notes on the origin of manuscript
[25/04/22 12:31] Kyphis:Hmm, back in a moment
[25/04/22 12:33] Aia: (Did I just stumble in on the conspiracy theory day?)
[25/04/22 12:33] :Chewett coughs
[25/04/22 12:33] Chewett:Its... its... true....
[25/04/22 12:33] Aia: (Because that is amazing)
[25/04/22 12:33] Chewett:Maybe...
[25/04/22 12:33] Chewett:I should repost that for posterity
[25/04/22 12:34] Chewett:Or leave it hidden away as the Gem in Kyphis' log
[25/04/22 12:34] :Kyphis returns
[25/04/22 12:34] Ledah:The secret knowledge...
[25/04/22 12:34] Kyphis:After checking the MDA records, I can verify that Chewett's statements are factual in this regard
[25/04/22 12:36] :Chewett Knew that the five silver coins he passed Ren all those years ago would pay off
[25/04/22 12:37] Kyphis: (My eldest is now trying to find out why I was laughing so hard, thanks Chewett!)
[25/04/22 12:37] Chewett:(This pleases
[25/04/22 12:37] Chewett:Me)
[25/04/22 12:38] Aia: (I am actually glad for once that I am wearing a mask at work otherwise I would look very silly)
[25/04/22 12:40] :Kyphis coughs
[25/04/22 12:41] Kyphis:Well, since Ledah has finished presenting, is there anyone else here to share their fondest memory?
[25/04/22 12:41] Valoryn:I would like to.
[25/04/22 12:42] Kyphis: *gestures encouragingly* By all means then!
[25/04/22 12:43] :Valoryn stands, holding onto his walking stick
[25/04/22 12:43] Valoryn:I joined this realm a few days before the 8th Birthday. But I won't bore you with my early days of being a confused new bee.
[25/04/22 12:44] Valoryn:We will go to the late days of year 9, when I had found myself in the hot seat of GotR leader.
[25/04/22 12:45] Valoryn:And the day after I lost GotR.
[25/04/22 12:45] Valoryn:You might think that I'm going to be all bitter about it. But no.
[25/04/22 12:46] Valoryn:There was a lot of concern about the how's, the why's and also who was behind it.
[25/04/22 12:47] Valoryn:What I was concerned about was to have some time of peace and to get away from all that arguing.
[25/04/22 12:47] Kyphis: (XD)
[25/04/22 12:47] Valoryn:So, I went to the Defensive Quarters to brew some tea and relax.
[25/04/22 12:48] Valoryn:Then, somebody had the bold idea that Loreroot should show activity to regain the alliance.
[25/04/22 12:48] Valoryn:So, while I was peacefully having my tea, I found myself having to spar at the same time.
[25/04/22 12:49] Valoryn:Sword in one hand, tea cup on the other, it didn't take lolgn for disaster to happen.
[25/04/22 12:49] Valoryn:I dropped the china cup I was holding and it shattered to pieces.
[25/04/22 12:50] Valoryn:In panic mode, I rushed to the basement to search for a wooden cup instead and brew more tea.
[25/04/22 12:50] :Chewett considers the blasphemy of drinking from a wooden cup
[25/04/22 12:51] Valoryn:To keep things short, I managed to survive the sparring without any further accidents.
[25/04/22 12:51] Valoryn:However, arguments about GotR and how it had been gone kept coming and going.
[25/04/22 12:52] Valoryn:When I finally managed to find some time to relax, I opened my backpack and there I found three things.
[25/04/22 12:52] Valoryn:The materialised pieces of the shattered china cup, the wooden tea cup and the GotR badge I had simply misplaced.
[25/04/22 12:54] :Valoryn bows his head lightly
[25/04/22 12:54] :Kyphis claps enthusiastically
[25/04/22 12:55] Kyphis:Bravo! On the one hand, I'm surprised Sage had a traditional tea set - on the other I shouldn't be; it is Loreroot after all
[25/04/22 12:56] :Chewett claps
[25/04/22 12:56] :Chewett especially liked the part about tea
[25/04/22 12:56] Kyphis:Do you by any chance still have the cups?
[25/04/22 12:57] Valoryn:I do.
[25/04/22 12:57] Kyphis:Spectacular
[25/04/22 12:57] :Nepgear claps
[25/04/22 12:58] Valoryn: (Broken Tea Cup and Wooden Tea Cup.)
[25/04/22 13:03] Kyphis:Well; keeping things moving who is presenting their memory next?
[25/04/22 13:03] :Chewett looks at Nepgear wonderingly
[25/04/22 13:04] Nepgear: (Sorry, quite busy at the moment)
[25/04/22 13:10] :Chewett nods
[25/04/22 13:10] :Kyphis eyes Aia, tacitamuta, stavaroiu, Miq, Tissy, and Nepgear
[25/04/22 13:13] :Miq dominated Eara Meraia and took all ☻34 heads.
[25/04/22 13:15] Chewett:Miq the violent is here!
[25/04/22 13:16] Miq:In violence lies the truth
[25/04/22 13:16] Chewett:That is an interesting perspective
[25/04/22 13:16] Chewett:What makes you think that?
[25/04/22 13:17] Chewett:Is it perhaps the company you have been keeping the past weeks *winks*
[25/04/22 13:17] Miq:People tend to spill the beans then
[25/04/22 13:17] Kyphis:If I was to guess, probably lots of blunt force trauma to the head
[25/04/22 13:18] Kyphis:Not the I disagree - I'd only do so if you were to mean "the only" truth instead of merely "a" truth
[25/04/22 13:18] Kyphis: (*that)
[25/04/22 13:19] Miq:I did say "the truth"
[25/04/22 13:19] Chewett:Truth is an interesting idea
[25/04/22 13:20] Chewett:If someone draws a 6 on the door
[25/04/22 13:20] Chewett:One way of looking at it is 6
[25/04/22 13:20] Chewett:One way of looking at it, from the opposite side, is a 9
[25/04/22 13:20] Chewett:Now, one person is right, but both see their view as truth
[25/04/22 13:20] Miq:If it lacks a dot then its art not number
[25/04/22 13:21] Chewett:I take the view of Fred Colon, regarding art. “Nude women are only Art if there's an urn in it,” said Fred Colon
[25/04/22 13:21] Chewett:This sounded a bit weak even to him, so he added: “Or a plinth. Best is both, o'course. It's a secret sign, see, that they put in to say that it's Art and okay to look at.”
[25/04/22 13:23] Chewett:Words to live by
[25/04/22 13:23] Miq:Replace art wit drawing then
[25/04/22 13:23] Kyphis:Ah, good ol' Fred Colon. I remember him well from my readings of The True and Accurate Tales of The Life of Nobby Nobbs
[25/04/22 13:24] Chewett:And as for truth, well they also know the answer there
[25/04/22 13:24] Chewett:'We are armed with the truth. What can harm us if we are armed with the truth?’‘Well, a crossbow bolt can, e.g., go right through your eye and out the back of your head,’ said Sergeant Colon.
[25/04/22 13:24] Miq:Nobbs has facke proof of humanity...
[25/04/22 13:25] Kyphis:I don't recall ever seeing Nobby prove humanity is fake, but I'd be interested to hear his experimental methodology
[25/04/22 13:25] :Miq bolts a crossbow
[25/04/22 13:26] Kyphis: (I'd say I miss being this way, but honestly as my kids can attest I never stopped)
[25/04/22 13:27] Kyphis:Now, if I recall correctly aren't you the reason my Head's medal is only silver, Miq?
[25/04/22 13:28] Chewett:Oh dear... fireworks will be starting soon :D
[25/04/22 13:30] Miq:Yhat was.eons ago kyphis. Cant remember
[25/04/22 13:30] Chewett:So I heard the heads contest was coming back
[25/04/22 13:30] Chewett:Just a rumour though
[25/04/22 13:31] Kyphis:Ah, I've just gone and checked the logs, looks like it wasn't yourself as you scored about 4 months afterwards
[25/04/22 13:32] Kyphis:I do remember you being a threat at the time though!
[25/04/22 13:32] Miq:I did not try to win befor i was quite sure that i could
[25/04/22 13:33] Miq:But i might have messed around
[25/04/22 13:33] Kyphis:I certainly wasn't hanging around in any locations that I saw you in
[25/04/22 13:35] :Kyphis sighs, and steps up to the lectern
[25/04/22 13:36] :Chewett claps again
[25/04/22 13:36] :Chewett wonders if the lecturn previously offered has more value if a Kyphis is attached
[25/04/22 13:36] Kyphis:Well, if no one else is currently ready to share, then I shall tell another memory of my own. It's hardly one of my fondest - not by a long shot - but it is one of the ones I still share to this day
[25/04/22 13:37] Kyphis:As those who know me well (or even casually) know I have a certain fondness for getting into people's heads - not for mischief per se, but certainly for entertainment
[25/04/22 13:38] Kyphis:Back in the days when I would spend most of my time in the Marble Dale Park sparring grounds, I met a certain player named redphoenix
[25/04/22 13:39] Kyphis:They were searching for elemental orbs which, although important to them, they seemed to have only a rudimentary understanding of themselves
[25/04/22 13:40] Kyphis:I found this fascinating, so we had a long conversation about them
[25/04/22 13:41] Kyphis:Much to my delight, in this discussion I was able to introduce all sorts of questions to redphoenix that helped them gain a far greater insight into what exactly they were actually doing
[25/04/22 13:41] Kyphis:In all honest I have no idea what happened to them after our discussion, as is so often the case I believe they grew thin and faded from the realm
[25/04/22 13:43] :Chewett claps
[25/04/22 13:43] Kyphis:But, as much as the specifics of our discussion are long since forgotten, the outcome and excitement I got from helping them grow in their own understand is something that has stuck with me to ths day
[25/04/22 13:43] Chewett:So many have touched MD and learnt something. Not always good, but learning is sometimes painful
[25/04/22 13:44] Kyphis:As is so often the case, it is a fine, fine line between pain and learning
[25/04/22 13:45] :Kyphis notices the Boning knife is out of place on the lectern so realigns it, then steps back down
[25/04/22 13:46] Kyphis: *gestures vaguely at the lectern* If anyone is ready to present, by all means don't wait on ceremony
[25/04/22 13:47] Chewett:Something interesting I learnt recently
[25/04/22 13:47] Chewett:The similar feelings that trigger in our body for excitement also trigger for anxiety/fear.
[25/04/22 13:49] Chewett:Speaking of memories Kyphis
[25/04/22 13:49] Chewett:Since I have you here...
[25/04/22 13:50] Chewett:What do you remember of what you wanted the Archives to become, and what can do we to continue your ideals?
[25/04/22 13:52] Kyphis:You were supposed to ask those questions on the last day I ran, haha!
[25/04/22 13:53] Chewett:Which was that? It seems like... a faded memory *winks*
[25/04/22 13:53] Kyphis:I always wanted - and want - the Archives to be a place of reflection and creative expression
[25/04/22 13:53] Chewett:It seemed apt to ask said question now, speaking of new creations
[25/04/22 13:54] Kyphis:That's why I feel like medals such as the Writer and Artist medals, and roles such as the Legend Speakers and Archivists are so important
[25/04/22 13:55] Kyphis:It's also why I'm sad I never got my hands on a writers medal!
[25/04/22 13:55] Kyphis:One of the things I love about MD is that players have the ability to leave permanent marks on it
[25/04/22 13:56] Kyphis:Like the fact that Bob can bloom at all, or Awiiya
[25/04/22 13:56] Chewett:That seems like an oversight rather than an intentional slight there Kyphis!
[25/04/22 13:56] Kyphis:It's neither - I never asked for it
[25/04/22 13:56] Chewett:Pff!
[25/04/22 13:57] Kyphis:I have very high standards of myself, as you might recall from how long it took me to apply for an official position in the MDA or how much work I put in when I did apply
[25/04/22 13:58] Kyphis:My personal goal to meet before I'd have asked for such a medal was writting for the AL. Which, for obvious reasons, never happened
[25/04/22 14:00] Kyphis:My personal vision for the Archives was for there to be a space that players could come, create something for other players to view, and then leave with their creation in place
[25/04/22 14:01] Kyphis:Something that could be shared by others, but that may only be as permanent as the next people to come past allowed it to be, with them having the same freedom to change what was recorded as...
[25/04/22 14:01] Kyphis:... the ;ast person had possessed
[25/04/22 14:02] Kyphis:... Also I wanted to kidnap one of the Aramors from Golemus and bring it here, but that only partially worked out
[25/04/22 14:02] :Kyphis shrugs
[25/04/22 14:03] Chewett:A25 opens a lot of doors to make your mark on the realm, and we have some good people who can help design and deploy quests
[25/04/22 14:03] Kyphis:Eye yam watt eye yam
[25/04/22 14:05] Fyrd Argentus:Hello everybody.
[25/04/22 14:05] Chewett:Speak of the Devil and he shall appear!
[25/04/22 14:05] :Chewett coughs
[25/04/22 14:05] :Chewett hides in a corner
[25/04/22 14:05] Fyrd Argentus:Else spoke to me about a submission...
[25/04/22 14:05] Kyphis:Hello old friend
[25/04/22 14:06] Fyrd Argentus:Hi Kyphis, did Else give you his bit?
[25/04/22 14:06] Fyrd Argentus:He's not here yet.
[25/04/22 14:06] Kyphis:He did present, yes
[25/04/22 14:07] Fyrd Argentus:Very good.
[25/04/22 14:07] Fyrd Argentus:I suppose I could make a contribution, if the time is ripe.
[25/04/22 14:08] Kyphis:It indeed is, the lectern is awaiting someone to step up and share
[25/04/22 14:08] Fyrd Argentus:Alright then, I will speak of my early days of quest making, before I even had MDScript as a tool.
[25/04/22 14:09] Fyrd Argentus:I loved this aspect of MD (and still do) . I put riddles on my personal page and set quests and races on the forum.
[25/04/22 14:09] Fyrd Argentus:Not having the ability to write on clickies, I tried to get people to stand at certain places at certain times to guide races and pass clues.
[25/04/22 14:10] Fyrd Argentus:I invented the concept of "pickle points" to keep track of who won what - this was before viscosity and ap boosting consumables.
[25/04/22 14:10] Fyrd Argentus:I was able to get so much stuff going on, I had to make a spreadsheet to keep track of it all.
[25/04/22 14:11] Fyrd Argentus:I had about 120 people participating, and 30 different ways they could get pickles.
[25/04/22 14:12] Fyrd Argentus:I had a "tiered" system going that let them get better and better prizes traded for larger number of pickle points. Sort of like collecting green stamps and buying from the catalog.
[25/04/22 14:13] Fyrd Argentus:Anybody here remember that sort of thing - before frequent flyer miles....
[25/04/22 14:14] Fyrd Argentus:I think I had my "bottle of vinegar" long before Mur invented "spicy pickles" and gave me my pickle jar to produce them.
[25/04/22 14:14] Fyrd Argentus:This was shortly after the blight of viscosity hit the land.
[25/04/22 14:14] Fyrd Argentus:Anyway, that was a delightful time, the dawn of the age of the spicy pickle.
[25/04/22 14:15] Fyrd Argentus:Of course I was then able to just give people pickles and the excel spreadsheet went by the wayside.
[25/04/22 14:16] Fyrd Argentus:When I slipped into another dimension in year 8, I had been able to pay off the pickle points of all those people except perhaps 2-3, whom I was able to look up the fate of in year 16.
[25/04/22 14:16] Fyrd Argentus:Anyway, this was a grand time.
[25/04/22 14:17] Fyrd Argentus:Imagine - 120 people chasing after your quests, and your pickles.
[25/04/22 14:17] Fyrd Argentus:I remember that time very fondly, and work every day to bring that back.
[25/04/22 14:17] Fyrd Argentus:One of those fairy-tale endings, a platonic ideal, that I spoke of in your event, Kyphis, three days ago.
[25/04/22 14:18] Kyphis::P
[25/04/22 14:18] Fyrd Argentus:Maybe it will happen, but it will never turn out just as I envisioned - not least because the thrill of new adventure for me won't be there.
[25/04/22 14:19] Fyrd Argentus:Sone thing new, something better, perhaps.
[25/04/22 14:19] Fyrd Argentus:The tools are here... only time will tell.
[25/04/22 14:19] Fyrd Argentus:But that's the time I hold up to my battered ego and say, I remember....
[25/04/22 14:20] Fyrd Argentus: (the end of this story)
[25/04/22 14:20] :Kyphis claps
[25/04/22 14:20] :Chewett claps
[25/04/22 14:21] Fyrd Argentus:And perhaps that's why I'm such a gadfly to the A25 team.... my sincere apologies for that.
[25/04/22 14:21] Fyrd Argentus:Others have visions too...
[25/04/22 14:21] Fyrd Argentus: (and real life to enjoy)
[25/04/22 14:21] Chewett:Some call them nightmares *winks*
[25/04/22 14:22] Kyphis:Personally I found for a long time as I prepared to depart the realm that it was important to focus on empowering and encouraging the newer players to experience the triumphs of creation that...
[25/04/22 14:22] Kyphis:... we got to enjoy, rather than trying to recreate it for ourselves
[25/04/22 14:23] Fyrd Argentus:Yes, a noble cause.
[25/04/22 14:23] Fyrd Argentus:I do try to help others down the path of the Quest Maker.
[25/04/22 14:24] Fyrd Argentus:We have a number of promising souls about.
[25/04/22 14:24] Fyrd Argentus: (plug for the Quest Creators club on the forum.....)
[25/04/22 14:27] :Chewett bows out and runs off to do something
[25/04/22 14:27] Fyrd Argentus: (18 members.... exceeding the average number of players online outside festivals.)
[25/04/22 14:27] Kyphis:I wonder who will be next to present...
[25/04/22 14:28] Fyrd Argentus:Western hemisphere just waking up.... and looking for caffeine.
[25/04/22 14:28] Kyphis:Given how time is running down, whoever is next is likely to be last
[25/04/22 14:33] Fyrd Argentus: (So, kids, eh? How many? ages etc.?)
[25/04/22 14:35] Fyrd Argentus: (Are you going to want me to do the AR thing, or are you set?)
[25/04/22 14:36] Kyphis: (Two kids, four and one, both birthdays in July like mine)
[25/04/22 14:36] Fyrd Argentus: (Fun!)
[25/04/22 14:37] Fyrd Argentus: (Mine were 2 years apart - always fighting, but inseparable.)
[25/04/22 14:47] :Kyphis eyes his Boning Knife on the lectern
[25/04/22 14:47] Kyphis:Time's also running down for that side contest; looks like I'll be keeping that Knife
[25/04/22 14:48] Fyrd Argentus: (Side contest?)
[25/04/22 14:49] Fyrd Argentus: (I missed the publicity on that one....)
[25/04/22 14:51] Kyphis: (it was just something I announced when the event started)
[25/04/22 14:51] Kyphis: (Whoever can tell me why I did the roleplay that earned me that knife, gets to have the knife)
[25/04/22 14:54] Fyrd Argentus:Clueless here....
[25/04/22 14:57] Kyphis:I mean you know what my clues are like; if you really _want_ me to make it harder I'm happy to oblige....
[25/04/22 14:58] Fyrd Argentus:Okay - you did the roleplay so as to earn the knife.
[25/04/22 14:58] Fyrd Argentus:That's why you did it - not what you did....
[25/04/22 14:58] Kyphis:If I was to give a score in points that would be a...
[25/04/22 14:59] Kyphis:-5000. Couldn't be more inaccurate :P
[25/04/22 15:01] Kyphis:Well, that's time
[25/04/22 15:01] Kyphis:Thankyou everyone who participated, a log will go live on the forum momentarily...
[25/04/22 15:01] :[Spell] Echo

My own fondest memory:
 

Quote

[25/04/22 11:33] Kyphis:I thought to open the event I'd share my own fondest memory from my time in the realm - as well as an extra challenge and prize regarding my second fondest memory...
[25/04/22 11:34] Kyphis:A long time ago, when MD (and myself) were far younger, there was a player named Burns
[25/04/22 11:34] :Else looks at Kyphis
[25/04/22 11:35] Kyphis:He ran a Vampire themed quest where players could earn a special creature from Necrovion
[25/04/22 11:35] :Ledah sneezes
[25/04/22 11:35] Kyphis:I was still a new player, and was surprised that Burns invited me to assist with his quest
[25/04/22 11:36] Kyphis:He asked me to help point players to the next clue in his quest, and gave me freedom to set whatever challenge I wished for them
[25/04/22 11:37] Kyphis:As an aspiring Bard, I created a song for the quest participants to listen to, and a riddle to go with the song
[25/04/22 11:38] Kyphis:And now, so almost a decade and a half later, I will perform that song again...
[25/04/22 11:38] :Kyphis sets his guitar, and begins to play "Berzerkers Lament"
[25/04/22 11:38] Kyphis:To our land/The Shadow comes
[25/04/22 11:38] Kyphis:Not with fire/Nor with drums
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Yet in the land/Of wisest Sage
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:The Shadow roars/And spreads its rage
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever onwards,/Shadow crawl
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever louder,/The battle call
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:At the heart/Of all the land
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Berzerkers fought/And made their stand
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Many fell/From sides of each
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:But victory/Lay far from reach
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever onwards,/Shadow crawl
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Ever louder,/The battle call
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:In the Shadow/Berzerkers wait
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:Tortured ever,/Denied the gate
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:But the land/Still tells their story
[25/04/22 11:39] Kyphis:In its tears/Of Death and Glory
[25/04/22 11:40] :Kyphis lets the chords fade, then sets his guitar down again
[25/04/22 11:40] :Chewett claps
[25/04/22 11:40] :Kyphis sighs
[25/04/22 11:40] :Else wonders what the answer is
[25/04/22 11:40] :Valoryn claps
[25/04/22 11:40] Kyphis:I do miss that quest; Burns was quite fun to work with
[25/04/22 11:41] :Kyphis smiles

Else's fondest memory:
 

Quote

[25/04/22 11:45] Else:I would like to go next
[25/04/22 11:46] Kyphis: (Used to remove bones from cuts of meat. A thin knife with a flexible blade allowing it to reach small spaces. Often used for filleting fish or poultry)
[25/04/22 11:46] Else:I might not be the best at story telling (curious since I am from LS) but I would like to share some memories
[25/04/22 11:47] Else:If I remember correctly these events took place in year 5 of MD,
[25/04/22 11:47] Else:I remember coming back to the realm after a few years of inactivity.
[25/04/22 11:47] Else:As I achieved MP5 before leaving the realm the last time I was kind of a new MP5 and struggled a lot to get wins againts most players.
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:One day I was wandering around MDA and found a group of players in the Golden Globe Gazebo Interior
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:better known as the GGG or the MR Training Grounds,
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:back then I did not know about its rules so I proceeded to attack them for some wins.
[25/04/22 11:48] Else:After a while they invited me to train with them and explained the GGG rules to me.
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:The few names I can remember are Asterdai, Buster, Spartiatis and Manda.
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:I was getting along with them as we kept training,
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:even one day Asterdai offered me an angien egg for one silver coin,
[25/04/22 11:49] Else:after I told him I had none,
[25/04/22 11:50] Chewett:What a kind gift
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:he gave me the egg for free and even one silver coin.
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:To the date it is still my oldest angien.
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:Everything seemed to go well until Eon arrived to ruin our fun,
[25/04/22 11:50] Else:we went to the Land of the East to train in peace.
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:Back then most players had like 200-300 max AP,
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:each step in the LotE took 80 AP and there were no land loyalty or land affinity mechanics,
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:it definitely took a while to get to our place,
[25/04/22 11:51] Else:but Eon kept arriving to our place despite Chewett sending him back to Gazebo of Equilibrium continuously.
[25/04/22 11:51] :Chewett coughs
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:It was kind of fun playing hide and seek for a while
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:This kept on going...
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:until I decided to take a break from the realm again.
[25/04/22 11:52] Else:I still feel this story is inconclusive, sadly my old friends are not longer here
[25/04/22 11:53] Else:But now more than 10 years later I still keep the good memories from back then...
[25/04/22 11:53] Else: (Thanks for listening or reading)

Chewett's fondest memory:
 

Quote

[25/04/22 12:00] Chewett:I can say a few words if you do not mind
[25/04/22 12:00] :Kyphis gestures for Chewett to by all means take the stand
[25/04/22 12:00] :Chewett Considers the value of the stand and wonders if it could be sold for much
[25/04/22 12:01] :Chewett Decides to leave the stand there
[25/04/22 12:01] :Chewett moves up to the stand
[25/04/22 12:01] Kyphis: (:P)
[25/04/22 12:01] Chewett:People can sometimes associate length of time in a place to mean impact.
[25/04/22 12:02] Chewett:Actually what I have seen is that you can be somewhere a very long time and have no impact at all.
[25/04/22 12:03] Chewett:Here actually it is not the time you spend, but the people you affect that matters most.
[25/04/22 12:03] Chewett:Some of our dearest friends have been with us for a short time, but impacted us the most.
[25/04/22 12:03] Chewett:So while I have many memories, many of them are not lengthy in nature
[25/04/22 12:04] Chewett:They are the odd little quirks people had, the chance meetings, the whispered plan
[25/04/22 12:05] Chewett:So really my memory is the friends, the people I have been able to chat, live, and work alongside
[25/04/22 12:05] Chewett:There are too many to name, but many of them are also here now
[25/04/22 12:05] Chewett: (Apart from the troublesome Ledah obviously)
[25/04/22 12:05] :Ledah nods sagely
[25/04/22 12:06] Chewett:Memories make you think back, to the things we have done, and look forward to the things we might do
[25/04/22 12:06] Chewett:One of the most core memories in MagicDuel is the founding of SoE.
[25/04/22 12:06] Chewett:It was a rather crazed time of heat gathering, plotting, and planning.
[25/04/22 12:07] Chewett:That was where I then became an honorary archives member, where Ren and my paths diverged.
[25/04/22 12:07] Chewett:We both worked on attaining SoE, however he went into the dusty archives (less dusty then) to continue his research, and I continued mine in SoE.
[25/04/22 12:08] Chewett:My takeaway from the rambling here is, treasure the present, you don't know how long it might last.
[25/04/22 12:08] Chewett:And that maybe it is time for a final bow
[25/04/22 12:08] :Chewett bows

Ledah's fondest memory (with a little bit of prelude for context):
 

Quote

[25/04/22 12:11] Ledah:I demand more stories!
[25/04/22 12:13] :Kyphis turns to Ledah
[25/04/22 12:14] Kyphis:Don't demand what you aren't willing to give yourself - are you prepared to share your own memory?
[25/04/22 12:15] Ledah:Hmm but do I remember anything...!
[25/04/22 12:15] Chewett:Thats a nice Alliance you have there Ledah
[25/04/22 12:16] Chewett:I wonder how that happened? *sticks his tongue out*
[25/04/22 12:16] Ledah:Ah yes!
[25/04/22 12:16] Ledah:I think phan invited me in, he liked the cut of my jib, so to speak
[25/04/22 12:16] Ledah:How very... trusting
[25/04/22 12:17] Chewett:See
[25/04/22 12:17] Chewett:The amusing thing was that I was also thinking clearly he is too trusting!
[25/04/22 12:17] Ledah:We are thinking along the same lines!
[25/04/22 12:17] Ledah:Fwahaha
[25/04/22 12:17] Ledah:But speaking of, as I recall he is a lover of.... Bob
[25/04/22 12:18] Ledah:It has made me remember the TRUE origins to my desire to see that twig burn!
[25/04/22 12:19] Ledah:Yes, it was a lovely day, quite warm as I recall... as I went on my daily stroll I saw the most wonderful colours at the Path of Loneliness...
[25/04/22 12:19] Ledah:Everybody was in awe, how wonderful they said - look at the colours!
[25/04/22 12:19] Ledah:Fools!
[25/04/22 12:20] Ledah:I vowed that day to crush that blasted colourful twig... from playing games with a talkative goat to using up endless amounts of fire starters... it seems one day I had done it...
[25/04/22 12:20] Chewett:Fools, surely not!
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:Fools I say!
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:So foolish that even after I briefly succeeded they brought the blasted thing back!
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:Those were good times
[25/04/22 12:21] Ledah:Of course, now you never see it bloom... so who was right in the end?!?!
[25/04/22 12:22] Ledah:Me, potentially
[25/04/22 12:23] Chewett:Maybe
[25/04/22 12:23] Ledah:Oh yes, I should say that was the end of my wonderful story

Valoryn's fondest memory:
 

Quote

[25/04/22 12:41] Valoryn:I would like to.
[25/04/22 12:42] Kyphis: *gestures encouragingly* By all means then!
[25/04/22 12:43] :Valoryn stands, holding onto his walking stick
[25/04/22 12:43] Valoryn:I joined this realm a few days before the 8th Birthday. But I won't bore you with my early days of being a confused new bee.
[25/04/22 12:44] Valoryn:We will go to the late days of year 9, when I had found myself in the hot seat of GotR leader.
[25/04/22 12:45] Valoryn:And the day after I lost GotR.
[25/04/22 12:45] Valoryn:You might think that I'm going to be all bitter about it. But no.
[25/04/22 12:46] Valoryn:There was a lot of concern about the how's, the why's and also who was behind it.
[25/04/22 12:47] Valoryn:What I was concerned about was to have some time of peace and to get away from all that arguing.
[25/04/22 12:47] Kyphis: (XD)
[25/04/22 12:47] Valoryn:So, I went to the Defensive Quarters to brew some tea and relax.
[25/04/22 12:48] Valoryn:Then, somebody had the bold idea that Loreroot should show activity to regain the alliance.
[25/04/22 12:48] Valoryn:So, while I was peacefully having my tea, I found myself having to spar at the same time.
[25/04/22 12:49] Valoryn:Sword in one hand, tea cup on the other, it didn't take lolgn for disaster to happen.
[25/04/22 12:49] Valoryn:I dropped the china cup I was holding and it shattered to pieces.
[25/04/22 12:50] Valoryn:In panic mode, I rushed to the basement to search for a wooden cup instead and brew more tea.
[25/04/22 12:50] :Chewett considers the blasphemy of drinking from a wooden cup
[25/04/22 12:51] Valoryn:To keep things short, I managed to survive the sparring without any further accidents.
[25/04/22 12:51] Valoryn:However, arguments about GotR and how it had been gone kept coming and going.
[25/04/22 12:52] Valoryn:When I finally managed to find some time to relax, I opened my backpack and there I found three things.
[25/04/22 12:52] Valoryn:The materialised pieces of the shattered china cup, the wooden tea cup and the GotR badge I had simply misplaced.
[25/04/22 12:54] :Valoryn bows his head lightly

Fyrd Argentus's fondest memory:
 

Quote

[25/04/22 14:07] Fyrd Argentus:Very good.
[25/04/22 14:07] Fyrd Argentus:I suppose I could make a contribution, if the time is ripe.
[25/04/22 14:08] Kyphis:It indeed is, the lectern is awaiting someone to step up and share
[25/04/22 14:08] Fyrd Argentus:Alright then, I will speak of my early days of quest making, before I even had MDScript as a tool.
[25/04/22 14:09] Fyrd Argentus:I loved this aspect of MD (and still do) . I put riddles on my personal page and set quests and races on the forum.
[25/04/22 14:09] Fyrd Argentus:Not having the ability to write on clickies, I tried to get people to stand at certain places at certain times to guide races and pass clues.
[25/04/22 14:10] Fyrd Argentus:I invented the concept of "pickle points" to keep track of who won what - this was before viscosity and ap boosting consumables.
[25/04/22 14:10] Fyrd Argentus:I was able to get so much stuff going on, I had to make a spreadsheet to keep track of it all.
[25/04/22 14:11] Fyrd Argentus:I had about 120 people participating, and 30 different ways they could get pickles.
[25/04/22 14:12] Fyrd Argentus:I had a "tiered" system going that let them get better and better prizes traded for larger number of pickle points. Sort of like collecting green stamps and buying from the catalog.
[25/04/22 14:13] Fyrd Argentus:Anybody here remember that sort of thing - before frequent flyer miles....
[25/04/22 14:14] Fyrd Argentus:I think I had my "bottle of vinegar" long before Mur invented "spicy pickles" and gave me my pickle jar to produce them.
[25/04/22 14:14] Fyrd Argentus:This was shortly after the blight of viscosity hit the land.
[25/04/22 14:14] Fyrd Argentus:Anyway, that was a delightful time, the dawn of the age of the spicy pickle.
[25/04/22 14:15] Fyrd Argentus:Of course I was then able to just give people pickles and the excel spreadsheet went by the wayside.
[25/04/22 14:16] Fyrd Argentus:When I slipped into another dimension in year 8, I had been able to pay off the pickle points of all those people except perhaps 2-3, whom I was able to look up the fate of in year 16.
[25/04/22 14:16] Fyrd Argentus:Anyway, this was a grand time.
[25/04/22 14:17] Fyrd Argentus:Imagine - 120 people chasing after your quests, and your pickles.
[25/04/22 14:17] Fyrd Argentus:I remember that time very fondly, and work every day to bring that back.
[25/04/22 14:17] Fyrd Argentus:One of those fairy-tale endings, a platonic ideal, that I spoke of in your event, Kyphis, three days ago.
[25/04/22 14:18] Kyphis::P
[25/04/22 14:18] Fyrd Argentus:Maybe it will happen, but it will never turn out just as I envisioned - not least because the thrill of new adventure for me won't be there.
[25/04/22 14:19] Fyrd Argentus:Sone thing new, something better, perhaps.
[25/04/22 14:19] Fyrd Argentus:The tools are here... only time will tell.
[25/04/22 14:19] Fyrd Argentus:But that's the time I hold up to my battered ego and say, I remember....
[25/04/22 14:20] Fyrd Argentus: (the end of this story)

As well as the above, anyone who wasn't able to make the event is now welcome to post their own entries to this thread.
And.... no, the challenge for the Boning Knife is not still open. I'll be keeping this for now.

At the end of day 15, upvotes will be tallied and recorded in this thread, after which winners will be contacted to organize rewards.

Final upvote tallies from the community voting:
Kyphis: 1
Else: 1
Chewett: 1
Ledah: 0
Valoryn: 0
Fyrd Argentus: 1

So we have a four way tie.
Since we have a tie, the first two winners to message me on the forum asking for their prize will be the final winners (fastest gets first pick)

(Effectively this is just between Fyrd Argentus and Else since I doubt Chewett is going to ask for a reward, and I'm not going to message myself. But hey, Chewett might want a rare creature so I'm not going to exclude him! Sorry Ledah/Valoryn, you didn't manage to score any points in voting)
