    August 1 will begin the first of four days of celebration! August 1st's celebration will be a meet and greet. A festival for all the folks that live and die on this wonderful shard. It would not be an Iantown production with out a contest, though.

    How much damage can you do in one hit? Just one! Any one that hits more is disqualified. Double strike counts as one hit. Only once though! :)

    First prize will wil three soul stone fragments, second will get two. In the event of a tie, a duel will be decide the winner.

    For the fun news, the target will be Kelmo!

    The next three events will be posted soon.

    Hey for once I don't feel I need to be payed to kill someone...

    I've been wanting to target you for a while now... but alas... every time I venture into Iantown you are never there...

    *sighs*

    Guess I shall see you tonight? =P

    Weird Questions:

    Can I ask my target to drain his/her mana?

    Can I hit with a weapon and spell at the same time?

    Can I precast a buff spell? (Its not doing damage na na [​IMG])
     
  8. i hope Iantown holds the its annual Dark Schnieder wither contest to see who can withstand the close wither..that was the highlight for me last year
     
  9. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Wow... those are wierd questions... =P

    Why are you asking me though!
     
  10. Guest

    Guest Guest

    You can buff all you want. Only one hit though, so it must be either weaopon or spell.

    Gondor, you might catch Kelmo out in the woods working out. I gotta get those hit points up!

    oh and do curses count as hits too?

    LOL, that was a rare opportunity I don't think will come any time soon, also a big part of it was the initial Earthquake, somehow I think people will be a bit more wary of a lich wandering around the middle of a very large crowd lol. Suprise is an invaluable ally (A few AFK enemies never hurt anyone either heh) But it was for fun and not grief so it was all good.

    Still have this lieng around in my photobucket (i believe this Screenshot was originally shot by sloan, i didn't really think to take a screenshot as I ran for dear life after "remove thyself") [​IMG]

    Hmmm, Kiera Willow is coming to visit me for a week, so I am not sure that I will be around much, but if I am in the realm on Aug 1, expect to see Kiera and I attend this event. If not, I wish you all much fun and success with the festivities.

    I hope you dont start to late as we europeans would love to join on that event aswell. Even if its all grey/white again. Just to be there is well worth it and showing your mates such pics makes them jealous for not playing SP hehe.

    That event took place not long after I started Siege (and UO). Like so many other things, I did not understand how area spells such as EQ and wither worked, and the differences in results casting them between reds &amp; blues...I only remember I was puzzled at seeing grey so suddenly, along with most of the rest of the packed house. I had to get things explained to me afterward. The only thing I was annoyed about was how long it took me to find my body [​IMG]. (Many thanks to the kind folks who told me about AllNames, and the wonder of Ctrl+Shift.)

    I also recall that I lost a great seat, when I got up to tease WyRm when he arrived late, and was standing in the back of the room for a while. I got another seat eventually, and also managed to save a spot for Castor, by plunking down a wheat sheaf on the bench next to me, until he got there, but it still was not as good as the first one. Vampire lords cause trouble in SO many ways...[​IMG]

    I must say, I wish I were playing siege when that all went down.. However I was still a prodo newb..

    But no matter.. me and goodguy hit up the Iantown Theatre during its rennisance (SP?) and Got about a good 10 corpses.. then we stuck around and rezzed the folks cause there were no survivors [​IMG]

    I remember that.

    That was back when I thought Spree was a real girl! lol

    I think I left right before that happened.

    <font color="blue"> Mem’ries,
    Like the moongates in my mind
    Misty neon-colored memories
    Of the way we were
    Scattered armor,
    And the regs we left behind
    *HUGS* we gave to one another
    For the way we were
    Can it be that it was all so simple then?
    Or has EA re-written every line?
    If we had the chance to do it all again
    Tell me, would we? could we?
    Mem’ries, may be beautiful and yet
    What’s too painful to remember
    We simply choose to forget
    So it’s the laughter
    We will remember
    Whenever we remember...
    The way we were...
    The way we were...
    </font>
    Cheers!

    Good to see ya Ragsie...now if we can dig Glen outa the woodwork perhaps we can have the orginal Fab Four for a quick reunion [​IMG]
    Lol, so when's the VH-1 "Iantown Behind the Music" special debut?

    While Founders day is indeed a recognition and rememberence of the past, it is also a celebration of all the hard work that every person has put into the community. I cherish the memories of all the times we have had, good and bad.

    I enjoyed the company of many fine folk, some no longer with us in game, but certainly still with us in spirit.

    Freesharder! You know darned well where Iantown is! You posted a map of it not so long ago. [​IMG]

    Soooo... does this mean the Iantown KOS list will be on hiatus during the event? Or is there going to be a Rez-Kill Spyder event that I wasn't made aware of? *eyes Ru's runebeetle nervously* [​IMG]

    Seriously.. sounds like a good time which I'm sure will be as good or better than the May Faire. [​IMG]

    Well, the third night will most likely be fashion night. What better excuse for you to wear your pink? Perhaps Castor will be sporting some new duds as well. *crafts sun glasses*

    The time now, accounting for server time offset, is 12:20 p.m. [​IMG]

    Is Asmodi doing haxxors to make his post stay at the top all day long??? [​IMG]

    P.S. yes, I am that bored...

    Eep! This diabolically clever time-stamp hack runs deeper than I thought...as I write this at 12:30 p.m., I found the following EXISTING posts:

    Then it would be called Founding Day or maybe even Iantown's Anniversary. Founder's day would be a day that celebrates the Founders....hence the name Founder's day.
    Either way, enjoy your celebration and lighten up. I was joking but I see you have very little sense of humor and like many Ianfolk....thin skin.
