    Remember me with smiles and laughter
    For that's how I'll remember you all
    If you can only think of me with tears
    Then don't remember me at all

    Today marked the first of what is hoped will be the annual Lady Phoenix Memorial Festival. A full day of activities kept folks laughing and hopping around the shard (and Cru didn't get lost once!).

    We began in Jhelom with Lady Ping hosting the Mage Poker event. True to form she asked the mages for some very difficult combinations, and the five finalists got to choose from an impressive box of goodies!

    First place was Damia who selected an old school blood tile
    Second place Memnoch who chose the blessed Crimson Cincture
    Third place we had Lyric who lifted a handsome neon gift box
    Fourth was Savoua Fair and she selected the new pardons (and declined comment when asked if they were needed)
    Fifth place was Beldin who took home a rubble tent piece


    After poker it was off to the farmer's fields in Moonglow to chase down the icey looking vorpal bunnies. MageCruella hollered out items to collect from the furry tiny corpses and everyone took home a club named "Bunny Basher", in pink, of course!


    Then we were off to Uriah's Rubble Reading Room for an archery tournament. Rules were simple... high scores get to stay, low scores sit it out.

    The entrants were:

    Savoua Fair
    Jirel of Joiry
    Eternal Blue
    Miss Behaven
    Lord Urza

    At the end of round one, The seven high scores went into elimination, again, still fighting only the buttes, and not each other.
    The seven quarterfinalists and their quarterfinal scores were:

    Eternal Blue 570
    Jaana 560
    Miss Behaven 400
    Morzon 140
    Urza 175
    Mabe 135
    DevilsOwn 112

    The semifinals were:

    Urza 56
    Eternal Blue 430
    Miss Behaven 39
    Jaana 660 !! Wow!

    Jaana 610
    Eternal Blue 480


    Right next door to Uriah's place was the site of the IDOC event hosted by TMC guild. The house went BOOM! and the ground was littered with goodies. River Rat found a nodachi that had engraved instructions to return to Mr Crowley, and his reward for doing so was a giant deamon statue.


    Then off to Buc's Den for a net toss! Lots of nets, lots of kraken and leviathan.... sadly, no ghost ship anchors or seahorses, but we are ever hopeful, and will keep doing this til we get it right!


    The day ended in Luna, gathered around the memorial recently constructed for our Lady Phoenix. Her good friend Thunder gave a short speech saying, among other things, "...she didn't care about the loot (regarding their idoc'ing adventures), for her the fun was the social aspect. And that is really what the entire game should be about. She loved to help others, and she loved to make the game better for everyone. She always saw the good in every player, and she is so greatly missed."

    I'd like to thank Mr Crowley for getting this all started. Some time ago he approached a few of us with an idea for a memorial for Ghostie, and the festival just kinda sprang from that. In the middle of it all, with a good deal of pushing from Thunder, the memorial in Luna was created and we decided to go ahead with our festival plans built around that base.

    Thank you to all the people that worked to bring this together... the spirit of Phoenix was shining on Legends today.

    Some call us stuck-up
    We are stuck on each other
    We come to the aid those in need

    Thank you all for participating in honoring Lady Phoenix! Us fellow guildmembers loved and appreciated our departed Guildmistress of the Mighty Orc Slayers (O/s) but we were not alone, for the whole shard shared the same emotions for her:) She didn't roleplay her avatars, her playstyle ensured that her real personality and character was reflected.

    I wish I could have stayed until the net toss event, that was always Dar's fave ::: fond smile:::
