    After this week's GRAND TOTAL DONATION of 10m, the Zoo Spawn Association (ZSA) has accumulated a total of 1,180,425 points!

    This means that next Tuesday, the 27th of January, instead of a Zoo Spawn we will be holding a Point Raffle!

    I will be placing a vendor with 30 books, priced at 1,000,000 each.

    Three of these 30 books will have different places inside them:

    1st: Pick of 600,000 points worth of Zoo Donation Items & 5m*
    2nd: Pick of 300,000 points worth of Zoo Donation Items & 10m*
    3rd: Pick of 200,000 points worth of Zoo Donation Items* & 15m**
    *All but the Donation Titles
    **If all 30 books are sold, these cash prizes will be given out.

    Where: D|R East End Emporium (Luna)
    When: January 27th 2009
    Meeting At: 7:30pm EST
    Books Begin Being Placed: 8pm EST

    Once the books are placed, you can begin buying them as soon as the timer allows you to.

    I hope to see you all there!

    Nope, not a typo, TW. That way, the points and gold you win balance out, and everyone wins about the same :D

    Hmm, well maybe after all the winners have won, we can all see who wants what and see if we can divvy up prizes.

    Hey, last night was my first zoo hunt and I had a really fun time. But, I guess I didn't understand all the details... I didn't know I was supposed to give you my powerscroll and I kept the gold I picked up. Sorry about that. Also, I left after killing Riktor once, did the group stick around and hunt the spawn again? Anyways, now I know and look forward to participating again.

    ...yeah. And sadly I think everyone forgot to meet at the council hall where Kasaven "lives" so that I could hand over the gold I snatched up. I still have it in check form. The next time I see you I'll hand it to ya. And yet again...I did not get a 115 or 120. ah well.

    The Raffle went great, everyone :) I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved with the Zoo Spawn Association. None of this would've been possible without you.

    ****Heading to the D|R East End Emporium, found in Luna there was a very nicely laid out bar inside. Many bottles of ale were set up, sampling a few Hagrid was over come with the beauty from the one known as BarefootPrincess. She had shown up to participate in the auction benefit for the Royal Britain Zoo to be held in the very same building.****


    I would like to thank all involved in this event. One of the more tame events no one died...er to my knowledge. Admittedly, its usually me who is found dead in the champ spawns for the zoo. heh. The books went quickly, and sold out under a minutes time.

    It was then that BarefootPrincess requested her reward to be give to...well, me. I rubbed my beard, gave it some thought...and I decided that a fountain, crafted from the hands of the Britania Zoo staff would make for a fair engagement gift to the lovely BarefootPrincess. She was a-bit taken back for a moment, accepting the fountain was a highlight of the evening for me. I'm hoping that she will make a public announcement to my request at the Guild Hall in Britannia...Maybe even Kasaven will show up?

    ****After taking a stroll through the zoo it dawned on Hagrid that BarefootPrincess had not actually said "yes" to the question. Assumption is only 9 tenths of the law, maybe she will join me in the Britannia Hall where the EM's are known to frequent. Quite hopeful though as she did accept the fountain, Hagrid is looking very forward to her answer.****

    Congrats on the engagement, you two :) If I can get that darned house, I'll be sure to set up some nice gardens for a wedding :D

    Mr Fart...next time you see Lerth...tell him to look in the bankbox of Draconis. There was an engagement ring in there. As Lerth is a dirty, corrupt old lawyer...nobody would ever marry him. Tell him I said to give it to you.

    I left him a voicemail. And he responded with an email. Seems I was wrong. There's a wedding band in there...not an engagement ring. I'm getting old...can't remember all that well anymore. Plus...I aint been in those accounts for ten months. He said you can have the band if you want it.

    Heh. I can remember making this user name. For some people they think I'm quite immature for making it. I just wanted a name that was easy to remember, and pronounce. I mean...How could someone forget a name like Bob_the_fart_Guy? heh. Ok, ok, ok...so there is some truth to it. I do break a lot of wind a.k.a. poot a.k.a. fart a.k.a. toot. And my name is Bob in RL so yeah, seemed fitting. Oh, and for the record I love Office Space.

    "I have a meeting with the Bob's today".
