    From The Desk of Lady Lava ~


    Dear Great People of Great Lakes,

    It is that time of year again. Several times a year I do a " From The Desk of " article. With Stratics recently been down this is a chance to give a few tidbits from the past several months as I see/saw them.

    Brit and Luna as the main gathering points for many are good places to start.

    Luna has had yet another transformation. That place changes faces more than Joan Rivers! In my interview with Rhen posted several days ago his departure has had the biggest impact. Of The Ring has moved his museum and appears to want to own Luna. Since the birth of Luna many people have tried to control the city by plot ownership and several have made significant attempts from ULTIMA and Purple to Tas and Rhen himself.

    Below is a screenshot taken weeks ago of a very odd gorilla setting up a home within the Luna Bank area.

    Luna action has not been happening just within the city walls. One of the very first Strangers appeared just outside of the city creating a massacre right infront of Isabeau's Expansion vendor shop.
    Below are two screenshots of that Strangers visit and the hell fire created.

    On the subject of strangers and bloodshed, Brit has been as busy as ever. Actual blood may not be shed there often but the acid tongue of many a banksitter has cut to the nerve of many. Ahhh....the joys and fun of banksitting.

    Some have taken the "sitting" of bank sitting seriously. Below is a screenshot of Hosokawa and Chaotic Barbie discussing current personal and community affairs in a seating arrangement they created. These gals know how to bank sit in style.


    For those that bank sit many of the usual suspects have been present the past few months. Even Black Betty has been spotted there wearing an apron created by Lord Saint of Killers and double blessed sandals.

    More than banksitting has been going on in Brit. Turn In time has been upon us. Note below the locations for those that may have been living under a rock the past few months.

    The Turn Ins have been an exciting thing for decoraters and plot owners alike. Below are two screenshots depicting some of the turn in item rewards. The first screenshot is one of my Luna plots featuring the yucca trees, beehive and nest with eggs. The second screenshot is of the home of Lord M-One ( a.k.a. Miller Brewing Company ) featuring the horse barding and dragon head wall mount. This is exciting stuff indeed !

    If you have not already start cleaning out your chests and boxes and get those glorious tealish green tickets.

    Moonglow has calmed down the past few weeks after the closure of the mysterious moongate which lead to an altered Moonglow. All that remains is sad scarred wounded area ( see below ). It appears to still have evil properties as one cannot cast near there nor mount an Ethereal.


    Player run events have been going strong also. FCB had a net toss recently, MOA has been running auctions and scavenger hunts and chickens have been shedding blood at CFC ( see below ).

    The GOF auction house is still making attempts which is good news. I popped in for a few this past week and some good items went on the block even though some banned patrons were trying to set the place on fire as you can see in the screenshot below. My new frock was a little damaged but I found a great tailor in Vesper to repair it. My singed red hair is another story.

    As the years go by people come and go in our realm and often vet players depart. Their time here has done what it was meant to do for them. For those that have been around as long as I have I wanted to let you know though you may not see her/him Jamba Juice is still around. Yes, the original Jamba and still creating wonderful designs.
    She informed me vendor shop ownership is in her past. She is living a quiet life of tailoring and fishing. Needless to say also decor...she is working on a castle right now but below is her recent creation. It is always nice to run into old friends.

    As a hunter of decor, good and evil, tasteful and tacky,I would like to leave you with a screenshot of a plot I happened upon last month.
    I do not care for the barrel type cactus and for the first time I actually liked them.

    All my best.

    Fondly, Lady Lava

    Poetry is a great thing. You should start up again. Writing is good for the mind and the soul.
