    Faine’s Pretty Head Contest

    [​IMG]

    Today, citizens of Origin, we ask you to wield a pen instead of a sword.

    EM Faine Morgan’s head has been conspicuously but mysteriously placed upon the bar at the Counselor’s Hall in Britain, Trammel. Who or what caused Faine’s decapitation? Who placed her head on the bar? Why would anyone do such a thing?

    [​IMG]

    Conjure up your most creative tales to explain this mystery!

    The player with the best story (as voted on by UO’s Event Moderator Team) will have their name forever emblazoned upon the head of EM Faine Morgan as it rests upon the bar (or eventually, in Origin’s Reward Hall), with a notation such as, “The head of EM Faine Morgan, chopped off by [PlayerName]” or a similar phrase suitable to the winning fiction.


    Contest Rules:
    Is your pen as mighty as your sword?

    Yikes! Since it's a 'pretty head' contest perhaps Faine had a stalker? This isn't going to be like a soap opera where she comes back, head intact next week is it?? ;)

    I like the idea of this contest. Put literary skills to work, literally. :D

    Oh my,

    I could use a bit of Faine Morgan history please. Where can I go to find that. Wouldn't want to write a Lady with a pretty head out of character now.

    Please post it here for all to share is very preferable.

    Will we be able to read all entries eventually?

    I've searched everywhere I could think of to find out some Faine Morgan history .. it seems she sort of just spawned one day not too terribly long ago .. then travelled around a few shards as a floater, (hmm, floating EM .. now that conjures up a mental image of EM's dancing on a bar) until Origin became Faine's permanent EM home.
    You can ask the question about if we'll be able to read all the entries over on emfainemorgan.com ... The EM's do read our forums, but can't post on them.

    Well good grief now. Hows a body supposed to write the demise of a lady if he knows not whether she occasionally takes a Turkish bath, spends all her time in the garden, has rotted her teeth out with confections, or whatnot?!

    *sigh*

    I didn't realize they were not allowed to post here. Guess I'd better get it from the horses mouth.
    *notices you staring*
    Well, of COURSE, she's not a horse...

    a horse would just be named Lady, not...

    oh... nevermind.

    Thanks for the reply though.

    Perhaps we can compile a list of known facts regarding EM Faine Morgan. From past meetings I know:
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan has raised teenagers
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan enjoys interacting with the residents of Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan sometimes reads the forums while at work
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan was not at all intimidated by the surprise appearance of a dagger wielding Mesanna at a recent Meet & Greet/Question & Answer session
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan has been known to dance on bars with EM Laurana
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan likes to take us on 'Field Trips'
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan has a pet beetle statue at the Origin Award Hall & Memorial Gardens
    • EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin
    • EM Faine Morgan likes to get into the 'finger paints' when left alone at the Counselors Hall
    • Oh, and did I mention EM Faine Morgan LOVES Origin?
    I am certain others have tidbits of 'known facts' regarding EM Faine, let's get a list going!

    Hmm, it sure seems I see some sort of pattern there....

    Although I'm not quite sure I'm grasping the whole picture.

    I do have one question though. What IS EM Faine Morgan? In the Counselor's Guild there is a fairy statue of EM Faine Morgan and EM Faine Laurana.

    Does this mean she is a fairy then? Or is this just some artist taking some sort of license with his image here?

    She and all the others are Eldritch Minstrels.

    Sheesh, I thought everyone knew that. They are very rare but highly gregarious individuals who take advertisement of their activities and community building with deadly seriousness.

    And there it is! I've answered my own question and have my story.

    Thanks!
     
  10. *Grabs pen and ink and wonders....does Em Faine love Origin?*

    For some reason Im thinking she does, but Im not sure where I got that idea. Hmmm, I must have read that somewhere before. Oh well, back to the writing I go.....

    Hmmm, I can't forget what I don't know ... but, in a sense you are correct as I do remember EM Faine Morgan saying, 'I love you guys.' This was said just before she said, 'I LOVE Origin!'

    'Save the earth ... it's the only planet that has chocolate!'

    Two more Faine facts I discovered last night:

    1. EM Faine Morgan likes colors ... but NOT green. (That is EM Faine in the spring pink skirt.)
    2. EM Faine Morgan has a very special llama that often has to stay in the stable as he is for petting only, and discloses her location if she is in EM stealth mode.)

    Well now, that is interesting.

    I've heard of a mystic llama herder, but never of a petting llama herder.
     
  17. LOL...I could give up chocolate...but I'm not a quitter! :thumbsup:

    It was a very satisfying read. Did they win?

    Yes, oops Yeah Errant was the winner and his story is in a book in the Counselor's Hall. The head now says it was cut off by a Lurg or something like that.
