    Let me tell you a short story today.
    Today it was, a Sunday evening on the Europe shard.

    After long abstinence from mining the growing lack of ingots forced my miner to leave her elven chair, take a bunch of shovels and get her bright orange bug, called Eyes Death in a foreign language from the stables and went to explore a new location, where she hoped to find some metal and mine in peace.
    As expected, the place was peaceful, and as not really expected after exploration of the area by a tamer, who has no clue of mining business, she could mine there.

    After that long time not practicing the art of mine were almost lost, so she had to try some optimizations, recreate workflows and such (OT: mouse handling is for such repeating tasks not the best any more, pressing one or more keys to do this or that is better - and no, I still cant stand the new client, maybe I'm too old for it and its graphics).
    So the miner walked a few times back and forth, hitting some full, some empty spots with the shovel.

    Suddenly on her side a figure appeared - not grey, not red, not blue - yellow. But not one of the hooded figures, if my shocked eyes did see it properly, it was an archer. Would my miner now get shot down in the void?
    But no, a yellow name indicates no danger ... or so.
    Miner got asked, if she is stuck ... well she was not, so after a short smalltalk she got a nice farewell and the yellow person disappeared again.

    And believe it or not - she just survived to meet the most dangerous and powerful creature in Sosaria in that dungeon:
    Lady Mesanna!

    Let me say thanks to you, Mesanna, for work on Sundays and while doing something to prepare or clean up events even keep an eye for players potentially in need of your help (or of being struck).

    *Salute*
