    Maron sat stirring his cup of water with his finger. Water. Still wet. Not much had changed with the rules of the world or the rasping shape clinging to life in the bed next to him.

    He’d read the same book four times in the last month or so. He hadn’t been permitted to leave his solid and miserably made oaken stool with the exception of severe physical need or until released from his thirty hour vigil. Each “Watcher” was given eight hours to sleep after a thirty hour post. Maron had not slept so soundly in his life, nor had he been so completely bored.

    I love it when messages get delivered by feathered couriers. Good tale so far.

    Write on, Calvin,sir. Write on...
     
  4. So now we know - Casca is a bad guy. But he will want people to believe Clainin is the bad guy. (Thus securing Clainin).

    *May you live in interesting times ...*

    I think Casca is a bad guy too.

    But for argument's sake, let's say he's not....If he's not, couldn't "securing" that dude mean keeping him safe?

    I only skimmed the piece; I'll need to read it again, as it may be clearer than I think it is.

    Wasn't it Casca's claim that Clainin said he(Casca) should be king?

    Casca was protecting Clainin....and the young male mage(warned by Casca to be on the lookout) knocked out the young female mage as she was trying to strangle Clainin, then sent word to Casca that Clainin was safe...right?

    Who hired the young mage to kill Clainin?? Why did she do it? Guess we will find out as she was only knocked out and in a jail cell. Luckily we are in an era centuries before torture was frowned upon....we will get some answers.

    Doesn't sound like Casca is a bad guy from this?? Unless of course he secretly hired the lady to kill Clainin.

    Damn I need to beef up that article....I screwed up badly. Not only did I spell his name incorrectly as "Clanin" (thus necessitating other UO Guide contributors to fix my error), but I also incorrectly stated he was dead.

    *sighs*

    Oh well.

    At any rate, he was British's court magician, replacing Nystul. He was put into a coma by.....the black rock explosion in Haven (can someone please confirm or correct this, pretty please?) I think.....And has for A LONG TIME lied in a coma in New Haven.

    No, Mr Knighthawke, don't give up so easily. You stick by your guns.

    "He's just a little twitchy! He's still dead! He's still dead!"

    (Besides, when you double-click on a person and get the message "You cannot use this," it's rather instinctive to assume that the game now counts them as an inanimate object. I'm glad to see that UO doesn't condone the use of dead bodies by just anybody, though.)

    Does this herald an in-game event or is this "just" fiction?

    I am entirely unsure, but wish to note that both Casca and the young mage (Jessa) are both elves...dirty, dirty, elves...*spit*

    Just don't tell Morgana. It's been nice and quiet without her spouting "Usurper" every other posting with her imaginary sister in tow...

    From what I remember, within a week of New Haven coming into existance, he was found wandering (or collapsed) in the woods of the island and was taken to the healers.. where he's been ever since.

    Easy enough to mistake him for dead though, with him having been spirit speak'd within days of showing up on every shard... nice touch mentioning his "pale flesh" in the story devs, btw. :p

    In many ways, I saw Clanin as the personification of New Haven's development, for he went into his coma when things went off the rails in that whole project.

    *heads over to New Haven and pokes Clanin*

    I guess he's still a little tired.

    I miss Nystul.

    Do we have any characters running around from the series currently? Aside from Sherry the Mouse?

    Well I know Dupre is still alive at least.. just currently inactive. Last time I know he was seen was the last round of the previous EM program's events, at a sash ceremony on LS.

    Unless he was a part of the (assassinated) royal council ... I had the impression it was a way of doing a clean wipe of historical NPCs.

    Aw man, Dupre, that drunken lout. He was always my favorite of the companions. Hope he's still kicking around somewhere. What about Shamino and Iolo? Didn't one of them go with Lord British when he left? Can't remember...

    Shamino hasn't been heard of since he took LB's place around the discovery of the Lost Lands so far as I know, and.... I think Iolo got killed off sometime? I honestly am not sure?

    It's good to know that Clainin is awake. I was just in New Haven and he is still at the healer's place. He looks a little rough (he's all sprawled out on the bed) and looks like he could use a big bowl of hearty stew. Perhaps someone could cast greater heal on him and maybe cast a bless spell, too?

    In regards to other Companions of the Avatars showing up in future events/storylines, Draconi did mention this in his UOForums interview:

    Not got time to play today, but has anyone checked the jails for Jessa Leis. Also it says:
    Need to keep an eye open for them too.

    I guess that´s just a convoluted way to say New Haven healers.

    Dupre I remember..... as well as Dawn.... how I miss her..... she led me on many an adventure.... I often wondered what became of the both of them...
     
  31. at least he is safer there then any where else. my main concerns would be if they moved him.
