    There is an ancient, time-honoured tradition on Europa, dating back to 2001. It's also one that we've not done since 2003...

    The Great Europa Nude Marathon.

    Testing the water (although not that warm spot over near Miggie...) - who would be interested in trying that greatest of great noble sports again?

    The rules are, as always, simple enough:

    1) No clothes (although the standard rule of "you can leave your hat on" applies)
    2) No mounts, ethereal or otherwise. This includes ships.
    3) No teleporting, recalling, gating, sacred journey-ing, or any other variant spells. This includes not using public gates or "accidentally" stumbling through gates your friends may have "accidentally" opened in front of you.
    4) Modified for Stygian Abyss, no flight. (also known as the "Mongbat Rule" to those who may heave dreamed of flying mongbats racing around Brit one time...)

    If five or more people are interested, I'll see about working out a track! Maybe something special like the last one, which was the Pan-Ilshenar Race.

    While this is technically true, my pride won't let it pass without comment ;)

    There have been several Marathons over the years. With the Europa Auction & Events guild we ran, I think, 8 editions of the Tour De Britannia. The only difference in that marathon was that we issued outfits (in lovely 'leto green' :D again my pride) rather then have the contestants run around naked.

    This, of course, is prompting that one, age-old question, which keeps the wise speculating since the dawn of UO-time : when will we finally get a change of underwear? :confused:

    I'll probably work out when and where this will be towards the end of this week, when I have more time and less panic :)
