AMS allows users to contribute articles about profession templates, houses, pvp, or a variety of other topics. This is a great way to showcase your ideas that require more space than a typical thread. Our staff can also feature articles and promote threads into articles (when appropriate). We are pretty excited about this feature and hope you will be too. It will allow the community another way to express themselves and contribute to the growth of the game and community! For information on how to submit an article, read this article.
  3. We've put our heads together to simplify the Rules of Conduct (ROC) from 23 items down to 8. We hope that the new ROC will be more intuitive and easier to remember. This should also help us to improve our moderation by focusing on fewer items. We are always striving to make Stratics better and to encourage communication and participation. We think that you'll be happy for this improvement. Thanks for being here.

    Quite a moral conundrum there. As a zombie I should just say "hey save me the brain!" Come to think of it as a zombie I shouldn't worry about morals either. Darn, guess I'll go munch on someone else's brain and consider this

    Items required for Part 2: Flax Seed. Raptor Teeth. Hides. Serpents Venom. Bones. Ingots. Wood. Natural Dye.

    Volunteers are "encouraged" to guess what she is building and place their theories in the mail at the EM Hall. The event resumes one week from today.

    This woman is constantly in trouble. She is a destabilising influence on society and should be incarcerated for her own protection and that of others.

    Overview.

    Grindylow was captured last week by a group of mysterious beasts, who are forcing the errant sorceress to create some sort of magical object or device. (You get to guess what it is.) Following a series of clues that began at her laboratory, leading us to Shame, the Tomb of the Pharaohs, Ter Mur, the Farm in Malas, and at last, Isamu-Jima, we discovered notes she left behind and clues as to what she was creating. Her Soul Wisp - a familiar possessing its masters same obnoxious hair color - requests that volunteers attempt to decipher the clues and determine what the mysterious beasts might be building with the ingredients above. You can submit theories to the EM Wedding Building.

    The Wisp also suggested that we might find clues as to the nature of these beasts amongst her laboratory.

    But all I found was poop. (Seriously.)

Meet the Soul Wisp at West Britain Bank to find out more!

    What was she building in there? In my house, the consensus was some sort of Trojan Dragon that farts paintballs, but we were all very drunk and I'm sure we were barking up the wrong tree.

    I wasn't able to be at the event but I guessed that it was a slightly confusing mechanical leather beetle chocolatier that had a stinger that was mistakenly designed to inject serpent poison. I firmly believe that Grindylow meant that the stinger was suppose to inject chocolate in truffles and decorate surface designs onto molded chocolates.

    I can't wait to hear that I am right!

    Ifan,
    I thank you too for the picture. You are a talented artist! But to find a woman that also has musical farts? You aim so high! It will be difficult to find such.

    hmmm... *looks at drawing again* Wait.. maybe you will. *decides the drawing is a drawing of Grindylow* The next time you are in Britain you should make an effort to meet the fine Lady Grindylow. She just might be the one you have been searching for.

    Be well friend.
    AW

    Dear Amber Witch,

    Thank you for your kind words. I confess that it has been difficult to find a woman that lives up to my stringent high standards, but my quest continues unabated. Please rest assured that I will allow you to evaluate any potential matches before any goods or services are exchanged, as you are a well-educated and savvy woman and you have my respect. I hope to visit Britannia soon, and if you feel that this Grindylow may meet my criteria, I will seek her out.

    I will also bring you some patented triple-ply toilet paper from the planet Earth, which is so rich in resources that they use fine paper, denser than parchment and softer than velvet, for the express purpose of post-excremental ablutions. It is a miraculous place. Other extraordinary inventions that I see on a daily basis include a steel chest that expels high-quality coffee from a faucet; a box into which dirty clothing is deposited with a cupful of liquidised soap, to emerge clean and fresh-smelling a mere hour later; and wagons that move without horses or any apparent form of external propulsion. (I am not allowed within one hundred metres of the latter unless I have a minder, following an unfortunate incident wherein Lindae and I stole one and drove it into the produce section of our local supermarket.)

    I look forward to seeing you when I am next in Sosaria.

    Yours sincerely,

    Ifan

    Amber,

    I would look in the Malas EM Building. Crysania said that she would put one on display.

    If you are implying that this is not a good thread, I will be most upset.

    I make no implications. I had that particular nerve removed from my body a few years ago.
