    Okies the storyline moved on and Glade vanished form Jurrels office, The Royal Guard (the players) were summoned to Brit Castle and a search was started. It was found for some reason Minoc was infested with swamp creatures, and Glade was wandering around in a dream like trance with the swamp monsters, although the monsters did not attack her.It was also noticed Glade would randomly drop either a un-named coloured seed or strange dust , which were both pickable. The guard fought the swamp monsters but they kept respawning, Jurrel suggested that Glade was somehow dreaming the Invasion and it was coming to life , so it was Glade that needed to be awoken. He also suggested maybe the smell of wine form her own town of Yew would do the trick. Players had to bribe the npcs in Yew Winery with a meat pie to get a Bottle of Yew Wine. This awoke Glade and the swamp spawn was finally killed off to free Minoc and free Glade form her nightmare sleep.

    <font color="red"> 2007 The Book of Truth - Global Event</font>
    As I write this, evil times are before us, but I’m confident the hearts of our people shall persevere. Though the days grow darker, there are many who still seek the light of Truth, for it is Truth that lends our arts the power to overcome all evil, if we but trust in it. But what is Truth, you might ask? Truth is that which is inherent in all things. It is the truth that we discover when we are able to see clearly, free from other distractions. As Lord British once wrote in the book titled Virtue, “Truth alone becomes Honesty, for without honesty between our people, how can we build the trust that is needed to maximize our successes? Truth tempered by Love gives us Justice, for only in a loving search for the truth can one dispense fair Justice, rather than create a cold and callous people. Courage and Truth give us Honor, great knights know this well, that chivalric honor can be found by adhering to this code of conduct.”
    It is thus more than a mere symbol that we have lost in the Book of Truth; it is a necessary constituent of the very fabric of our way of life. Though the task of retrieving it is monumental and the risk grave indeed, we must continue to bravely venture forth until that which has been taken from us all has been restored to its rightful place.
    Finally, my fellow seekers, let it be known that the brave soul who recovers the ''actual Book of Truth'' will be forever known for that great deed, his or her name immortalized in stone for all to see. Though we certainly do not wish to foster pride, we would be foolish not to honor the true heroes in our midst as exemplars of the Virtues!!
    Players had to fight the evil minions that lay around the Lyceum and virtue dungeons, as they killed there foe and got lucky they were rewarded with a replica book of truth, these replicas could be handed in to get a much better reward...The whole event hinged on the person who received the most books of truth- only his/her name would be carved in stone as the finder of the real book of truth under the Lyceum!!

    I wish I could!

    The board FAQ was in the same state, post registered to 'guest' and html coding instructions. I made the original. Only thing I could do was cut/paste the whole thing into a new thread, sticky it and unstick the screwed up old one.

    If you want to do the same with yours I'll sticky the new and unstick the old
