    "It's for his own good," Parium said over King Edward's screams of outrage. "And ours."
    "He gets so uptight," an elite ninja pointed out. "Betrayal, being killed, dry looted, subjected to libelous lies - little things like that just drive him nuts."

    The NEW2 graduation was held on July 27th at 2 PM. Many were there to see their friends graduate. Bartelby came and killed 8 NEW2 graduates including me. Then, On Your Side began stealing items and a few people began killing him. Lilith came and everyone kept booting him out. On Your Side gave up and left the ceremony.
    Overall, the NEW2 Graduates enjoyed the ceremony and look forward to seeing others graduate.

    As I've been travelling far and wide, it was news to me that Old Blackthorn had become king. Now I read a news article as to whether he's a fake, or a zombie? I'll tell you what he is, and it's something much worse, he's FRENCH!
    I hear tell of this Consiel Du Roi. What in the name of the virtues happened to the King's Council???
    Then I got to talking with an old friend of mine who says he snuck into the coronation ceremonies, or whatever they chose to call THAT. He says they ask Blackthorn, when do y'want yer stuff moved into Castle British? Blackthorn replies-
    "Oh no, Ah don' need Castle British you see? Ah've already got one."
    "Yes, we know you already have one, but-"
    "Oh yes! Is very naahss"
    I stopped my friend there as I had heard more than I needed to draw my own conclusions. Let us hope that our governors and town councils have better Britannian heads on their shoulders than Lord King "Frenchypants" Blackthorn.

    Luckily, Tazar has made many friends and we were able to kill the daemon that inexplicitly spawned behind him just after he signed his will bequeathing his many land holdings back to UO in the event of his death.
    "It seemed like the right thing to do at the time," Tazar later said. "But now I have this 'hunted' feeling."

    I, for one, welcome our new zombie overlords with brains and punch! With any luck our rotting ruler will inflict us all with the gift of undeath at the next governors' meeting.

    Where did Bartelby kill NEW2? not at the Castle as far I know.
    I'm very sorry that some reds was kicked from the castel, not sure who paniced and hit the remove thyself macro. One important element was missing in this Graduation, the option to chat with the red guilds too.
    I will do my best to be sure all who come in peace will be let in next time, I may have to remove a few friends from my castle.
    The remove thyself macro should only be used if someone do attack the guests, not just because someone fear it will happen.

    I can't remember if it was Bartleby or not, but someone did come in and "congratulate" the Graduates with a wither spam. it was while you were getting a gift, and we had em rezzed and healed by the time you got back. it was not that big a deal, but that was why people kept booting Lilith i guess. and again i apologize to Lilith for the one time i booted you, you cast a spell and I got "Itchy" :p

    Ok thanks for the info. I'm sure it was only a friendly "congratulate" kill. I may have to changes the setting, so i don't have to leave the castle to pick up the gifts :p
