Heyo fellow Olvi! Some of you know me... and some of you don't... anywho... while up in Theren chatting with others in Olvi (gotta love it) stumbled on a great idea...

It has been 359 years, 214 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer... and we haven't celebrated!! (well... not as a whole)

So... how about we all get together as brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews, etc etc and have a blast of a good time with tarts, ale, tea, water, chocolate, food, grub, and anything else we can get our hands on?

It's about time that Glythtide visit the Dale again... and this might help him get over there!

Rascalt, all the others of the Dale council... what do you think? We just have to do it!!

Pick a date, time, all that, and Arane and I'll be there for sure!

First off, them dern overgrown velvers came along(gnomes), and poof, I wasn't as right sized as I was(just cause I could shake em by their knees). So I resigned myself to bein right sized, and shakin togs n elfs by their knees. Then yesternight, or was it day before yesternight?, I go to do my duty by shakin an elf, and I'm grabbin by the shoulders.

Ack! Am I diseased with overtallness? Or have they found a cure fer elfs that makes em rightsized?

Gnomes are small but not dat small <tickles> On average gnomes are about a foot shorter than Olvi. But dere are some tall gnomes out dere and some short olvi. Rascie not like stand by tall gnome cause make Rascie feel really short to see gnome taller den em.

Rascalt Thain of Arthe, shortest Olvi.

P.S. The party was a great success, lots of people played the games and everyone seemed to enjoy them. Keep your eyes open fer another party later on in the year and as I accumulate more prizes to give out <g>

Ok all. For the most fun loving Race in the lands and most obviously the BEST race, we are somehow awfully quiet on the boards. Ok, the reason for this post. I was wanting to see how many of you would like to try and start up an ORDER for Halflings of all shapes and shortness. Something that every halfing regardless of Gender or Guild could get together and show the rest of them How great we can be in large short groups ;). Also a place that young halflings could come to learn what it is to be Olvi. A place to gather tell stories and help others and meet new friends. Like a mentor place but also a place to gather. well if any actually reads this leave you comments, if we get enough people wanting this to happen, we can ask the board gremlins.....I mean monitors for a folder in the unofficial organazations and see if we can put something together.

Sorry for the rant and miss spelling (late and I am tired)

I've decided its come time for me to step down as the Thain of Arthe Dale, I am no longer able to pay enough attention to the wonderful town with my duties as a mentor so rather than leave the town to be neglected I have decided to step down and search for a replacement. If you live in Arthe Dale and are a halfling please notify me so that I may choose a suitable replacement.

By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Feb 4, 2000 at 19:30

Greetings fellow Olvi!

Let me begin by saying what a great honor it is to be selected Thain! I will do everything in my power to keep Arthe Dale the peaceful and joyous village and countryside we all know and love.

I go by the name Mykk Dalys. Some of you may not know me, but anyone who lives in Arthe Dale knows the Dalystovski family. (Yes, I go by an abbreviated last name--awfully long last name, I thought!) My family is known in Arthe Dale and surrounding countryside primarily for two things: the vineyards we keep in the hills East of Arthe, where some of the finest wines anywhere are produced, and the underhill estate we maintain in Berry Knolls. As far as the wine goes, any connoisseur knows our reputation, but even most non-oenophiles are aware of our number-one export, Dalasian White, which we deliver all over Elanthia, from Langenfirth to Aesry. Our home in Berry Knolls is one of the oldest, and is located in the prestigious center of Olallieberry Circle. For those of you not up on the elder families of Arthe Dale, it is the ivy-covered octagonal knoll. You history buffs will appreciate my family's estate is next door to Squirt's former manor, may he be happy wherever he is...

The Dalystovski family typically avoids holding political offices... which is not to say we're without influence... but for my great love of Arthe Dale, I felt a social obligation to maintain a strong line of Thains, and gladly accept the opportunity to give back to the Olvi community. This community extends well past our Village Gate, to our families in Haven and Ratha, and anywhere and everywhere else our furry feet take us.

I'm sorry now I don't know more of you. There is some social pressure being a Dalystovski, which I sought to avoid by maintaining a low profile. While on the mainland, I do spend a great deal of my time in Arthe Dale, but three key influences keep me moving about the lands the way I do. First, my family's business sends me away at times. Second, I'm still a youthful Olvi (just turned 30 this week--what a way to celebrate a 30th birthday!), and as such am filled with wanderlust. What a glorious land we live in! Third, I list my hobbies as eating, drinking, music, and most importantly in this case, hunting. Not just random slaying, mind you, but thought-out hunting trips, living off the land (and sometimes a fine Inn <g>), sharpening equally my blades and my mind.

My current hunting trip finds me on the fantastic island of Aesry, where I've been since the beginning of winter. Although Aesry could never replace the green hills of Arthe Dale, I must say it is a wonderful place with a lot of very nice people of all sizes. If you are ever out that way, you should say Hi to Grayrn, an Olvi Empath of repute. Like most of you, I prefer Olvi empaths to all others, so if there are others of you, I'd sure like to know. As soon as this hunting trip wraps up, I will make my way back to Arthe Dale for a more formal inauguration.

At this time, I'm not going to set any agendas. I have some ideas for this and that, but lets see what time brings. Thanks for listening, I can be long-winded. To all my current and future Olvi friends and family, hello!

Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

On        Feb 4, 2000 at 22:35

(OOC statement from the player of Mykk)

Greetings fellow players!

Rascalt's resignation came as a surprise to me, so I'm not very prepared personally to effect any "grand changes" to the Arthe Dale community. Not that it needs any. Here's what I'd like to see to start. Any player, Olvi or otherwise, who has an opinion, an idea, who lives in Arthe, etc etc or just wants me to know they are available for role-playing opportunities when they arise, please send me an email. No, I'm not desperate for email, I get enough, thank you. But I will view the quantity of responses as indicative of the amount of time I feel like investing into the position. Make the emails IC or OOC, long or short, it doesn't matter. I will be trying to catalog as many Olvi in the game as I can, so if you care to send a name and profile, that would be appreciated.

I will be trying to collect any Elanthian history regarding Olvi-- any help in this regard would be appreciated. At least one of you has an Olvi-related website, I think it might have even been Rascalt. I'm not in a position to create or run a website right now, so if you have one, great, if I can help, great.

I used to be an active member of onelist.com's OlviList, but I believe it died. There is another list called, I think, OlviTalk. If anyone is aware of active Olvi mailing lists, please let me know. We should try to consolidate them (players willing of course). Then again, it was confusing to have information come across sometimes on the List, sometimes on the message boards, so I'm looking for opinions on the best way to get announcements and/or news across.

I'm curious if there was a Thain or Thains before Squirt. To my knowledge it has been just Squirt and Rascalt.

I guess that's it. I personally have 3 characters on my account... all Olvi. Except Mykk gets played 99% of the time, the other two just bum off Mykk and his knoll LOL. I've thought about creating other characters, but since I can not play 24/7 (real life, you know), I spend my time in DR roleplaying the race I enjoy the most: Olvi. I play 4-5 nights a week usually (eastern time), for anywhere from 1-7 hours a whack, plus here and there on the weekends during the day. I'm much more interested in the roleplaying aspects, so if you've got a question regarding stats or such for Olvi, ask Soim, I haven't got a clue. But if you're into roleplaying, drop me a line in-game or out, anytime.

email: arthedale@email.com
  AIM: mykkdalys

Thanks again,

--the player of Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale (yeah, I know it's pretentious, but hey...)

Greetings fellow Olvi,

Nothing earthshattering here, just thought I'd let everyone know I made it to Arthe Dale safely. I will be haunting my favorite town for a while, so feel free to look me up!

In my travels I get the pleasure of meeting some of you, and if you don't mind, would share who some of these great people are. That way, if you should meet them, I hope you would say Hi as well, and help spread the joy and solidarity that belongs to us Olvi.

On Aesry, as I've mentioned before, is the Empath Extroidinaire, Grayrn Redcross. I will miss him (and his healing touch!) very much here on the mainland. New friends I met include Schimmelpeninck, Tiffins, and Griffina.

Back on the mainland, I was able to attend the Trader's Ball, which was an excellent time for everyone. I went with Fizzia, one of the nicest Olvi I know, and also my best friend. Special thanks to non-Olvi Firannion, one of my favorite Humans in Elanthia, and without a doubt one of the most beautiful. She noticed me off in the corner, and dragged me out onto the dance floor. (She didn't have to try very hard!) She managed to dance with wee little me and keep a straight face, and for her grace, I thank her again.

I noticed Shayleena and Harmonystar in attendance. I didn't get a chance to talk with them.... I was distracted! (See above <g>). But it looked like they were having a good time.

I was hoping to make the Jeraya Games (Crossing Amphitheatre, 2/26/00, 5pm est), but family business is interfering... Bah. It's autumn, and my father needs me to help with one of the wine presses. ::grumble:: Anyway, for you Olvi looking for a good time, that should be more fun than anything else going on, and a relief from wondering when Lord Sorrow and company are going to cause more grief in our lands.

Take care,

Mykk Dalys, your friendly Thain

 Topic Race Only Verbs (13)
 Message SHAKE and GLANCE (61)
 By DR-TALISKER@PLAY.NET
 On Feb 24, 2000 at 23:20

 The SHAKE verb should now (or will in a few minutes when I actually put it into the game) show a bit more sensitivity as to the relative heights of two
 characters when one shakes another. So if you are a Gnome who shakes a 'Tog, or a 'Tog who shakes a Gnome, or someone who witnesses something along
 those lines, the messaging should now reflect differences in size more accurately.

 The GLANCE verb has been modified as to give you race & gender information with every glance. So GLANCE TALISKER before would have given you:

     You glance at Talisker.

  Now it will give you:

     You glance at Talisker, a male S'Kra Mur.

 (though it actually doesn't work on GMs ;)

 This was suggested several times by players over the years as a quick way to check race & sex without resorting to LOOK and also as a helpful indication
 of who you might happen to be RPing with. From now on, every glance will remind you :)

 Nothing major here, but both things were requested by players and I figured I'd give you all a head's up that they were there. As always, please point
 out any problems with functionality or messaging that you come across. I'd be most grateful.

 Cheers,

 GM Talisker, DragonRealms Staff

By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Mar 4, 2000 at 01:01

Greetings fellow Olvi,

As most of you know, fallout from a passing comet struck points all over Elanthia tonight. Many of us found crystal shards in piles.

The shards have the magical property to teleport you to various points in Elanthia. First, you rub the shard until it is the color you want (see below), then you focus on the shard to teleport there.

According to Kssarh, the Moon Mage guild leader, the shards will work as long as the comet is around.

The shards are *plentiful*. Do *not* pay for them. They are in piles all around Elanthia. They are in a crate in front of the Crossing bank. If all else fails, I grabbed extra, and would gladly give any Olvi one who asked.

The color/teleport combinations are: Black Theren, Red Crossing, Green Riverhaven, Violet Aesry, Blue Leth, Yellow Shard, Grey Ratha, Purple Mer'Kesh, Pink Tiger Clan.

If you need to contact me, you know the channels.....

--Mykk

Olvi in the News

Heyo, all! I'm just up to my usual Olvi-spotting. Some might call it spying <g>. I like to think I'm just trying to help all my fellow Olvi get to know each other. Seriously, if anyone has a problem with it, let me know!

Anyway, the major social event of the weekend, and, depending on who you ask, the week, month, year... was the wedding between two of Elanthia's beloved, Rock (Human) and Eyoni (Elf)! The wedding was in Leth, and went off superbly. Well, there was this goat, but that's another story. The wedding itself was well organized, and pretty straightforward. Just not straight-faced! Rock had us all roaring with laughter as you might expect, "Ex-Bachelor" that he is.

Olvi I saw in attendance were Fizzia, Grayrn, Mossyoak, Dseth, Gabela, Aslath, Mylthazz, and Tyrathia. I hung out with my friend Fizzia as usual, and the two of us tried to compete in the trivia contest that Aslath was leading. Spent some time with Tyrathia at the trivia contest, and she's quite nice too. None of us did very well though! There was also a tourney held, and I understand Dseth won in the "anything goes" catagory (as opposed to ranged and melee). Wow. Don't mess with Dseth. Soim was supposed to running the tourney, but he was absent for some reason. Busy gathering the troops is my guess.

That's all for now,

--Mykk

   I've been in the Realms fer about four months, and have yet to meet another halfling bard! Am I the only one? Not that I run into many halflings on a day to day basis <pout>, but I expected to see a least a couple around the guild in all the time I've been here!

Hi Kaihlyn! (and Rascalt and Gabela)

Based on my calculations, there are approximately 40-50 Olvi playing any given night (based on a couple GM censuses (censii? <g>)). I've "tagged" as many as I can... but hesitate to throw a bunch of names at you. I for one have never paid much attention to one's guild, and turned off my profession while still first circle. When people ask me what guild I am, I laugh and tell them I belong to the guild o' Mykk! (Membership one, we need eating, drinking, and music to circle). Then if pushed, I get a real serious look on my face, and tell them I belong to the Olvi guild.

I've managed to find another cleric or two besides Gabela, though she's right, they seem rare. I've found a few empaths, though, that's been a relief. Bards are a little easier to find, I've popped my head into the Arthe Dale Inn and bumped into some great Olvi bards there. Back when Dreamheart was holding weekly concerts at Baearholt's, there were Olvi aplenty, and at least 1 or 2 Olvi bard regulars. The Bards seem to like taverns (big surprise there) and events that involve food (ditto).

I can usually count on finding an Olvi or two lying down, relaxing and enjoying the view, while they spend some quality time with one of the beggers in town. They may be bards, but I wouldn't say for sure. Let's see, I know a few rangers, a trader, and a barbarian. I know of an Olvi moon mage. Oh oh oh, and a very nice War Mage, almost forgot. Can't think of an Olvi Paladin at the moment.

What gets me is wandering around Arthe (as frequently as possible), and I'm the only Olvi adventurer anywhere to be found. Ah well.

Hey, anyone else got some news or good gossip to share?

Thanks to some very friendly and responsive GM's, I was able to get the table in the Tanglefoot's home so you can put things on it. Nothing too big like armor, for example, but I'm sure you all can think of something. Roleplayers only need apply :)

I've got several Olvi in my "stable"

Kythsolh, the Th . . ., er, ranger, just ask him, he'll tell ya ;)

Joisheph, the bard, who has it on good authority from a game host that a 4th circle bard is one of the most feared adventurers around ;)

And Burrien, the latest addition in my family and member of the war mage guild.

Though, haven't been dragging the bard out too much lately, mostly the WM out of the three of those.

Hey to a certin degree I could be considered a Olvi Bard though I never wear a bards title :)

 Soim who enjoys playing insturments. (Musical Lore: 134 96% perplexing)

 Now if they just awarded skill points for smoking a fine cigar or pipe with style.

 Soim proud Olvi with huge muscles at 33 Strength... One of my greatest Olvi feats cause we all know working strength is very hard on us.

Greetings fellow Olvi,

Ye are nae alone, but perhaps ye not overwhelmed by the number of us either. Even this Olvi section of the Gwethnet appears to be one of the least used. We Olvi are not great in number, it appears.

My adventures have taken me away from the Dale and Crossing to learn new skills (like the getting wounded quickly skill and my skill in waterbreathing [a.k.a nearly drowning]) near Shard. Ye may come across me in those parts if ye head down that way, although I usually spend little time in town and more time learnin' those news skills I mentioned afore <giggle>.

When last in crossing area I came across only one Olvi (that I could see) and he was a friendly Bard. I also have come across an Olvi hunting in crocs not too long ago and he was a Paladin. The last Olvi I saw was on ferry from crossing to Leth Deriel, and I believe that he belonged to a guild strong in survival skills <grin>.

I do look forward to meeting more of us right-sized as opposed to all o' 'em twicelings and tricelings I've seen stomping around. Hopes ta bump inta yas all sometime soon. <bounce>

Zaulwen the Barbarian (barbarism in a more concentrated form)

Hi guys, I'm making this an OOC request here :)

I need 2 female Halflings to attend a wedding on Sunday night at 8PM PST. I'm doing an event for Phangor's mother's wedding. We're gonna be singing, yet, not singing. Its called Phangor and the Tartlets. We're going to be grunting instead. I'll need the first 2 female olvi who want to do this to contact me at snertgor@aol.com so I can finish setting up the script. Let me know right away! :)

Was in front of the Aesry bank the other night, and get this... there were *five* Olvi and like 3 non-olvi... them's good odds! Myself, Grayrn, and a couple others, one just passing through. We were all talking in Olvi, and Ruppi came through and jumped in a bit. Gotta tell you, it was fun. The biggest kick I got out of it was when a human said, "There must be a halfling village around here."

The latest census was just published (3rd one I've got since December), and Olvi were at 4% in the realms all three times. Not a whopping percentage, but what the hey. We make up for it in different ways <g>.

Good to see ya, Phangor, maybe catch you around Arthe sometime.

<<I say we get that 4% all together at once for the grandest party Zoluren has ever seen. And no you CAN'T use my house for the dance floor. Rascalt, Priest of Urrem'tier>>

And former Thain, I might add ::bow::

I'm up for a party. We've got the house to use, we'll just rent the Tanglefoots, even better now that we can lay the food out on the table. (Did anyone get the tarts I left there?) Or, if people want dancing, we can also rent out the Arthe Hollow Inn. Either way is fine with me. I meant to get an inauguration party together for little ol' me, but between my social schedule, the weather, and the upcoming Ice Fest, have kept putting it off. In any event, what I would like to offer with this bulletin, is a good start for a guest list. Feel free to "notice" these Olvi in your travels (ie, highlight), it helps our solidarity! On with my guest list! Feel free to help me add names, and I know some of the names are older, but I don't have the heart to take them off (may Squirt, First Thain, rest in peace...):

Actaeus, Arkidies, Aslath, Basgonif, Bilboe, Blosim, Burrien, Camalita, Candelle, Cypria, Danner, Darkknesss, Diancecht, Drashen, Dseth, Elrone, Erlanis, Fairuza, Fellean, Filli, Fipps, Fizzia, Flop, Gabela, Gird, Grayrn, Griffina, Haldunius, Harmonystar, Harringer, Hipcrey, Hobbithome, Hunney, Jennai, Jinxie, Joisheph, Kaihlyn, Katzklaw, Kesstrell, Kythsolh, Labarynth, Maelona, Maliah, Max, Maxstreet, Miggy, Momus, Mossyoak, Mykk, Mylthazz, Oxorn, Phangor, Puddle, Purloin, Rascalt, Ravwyn, Razzleberrie, Redbul, Regadlid, Ruppi, Sanlin, Schimmelpeninck, Scryy, Shayleena, Sherley, Shockka, Silmariane, Soim, Sparrowhawke, Sprocket, Squirt, Staratonn, Thorburn, Thumper, Tiffins, Tiliria, Trint, Tyrathia, Vailik, Vrodo, Zaulwen

That's 81 names, much more than the 4% of 1300 = 52 that we might expect in the realms at any one time <g>. I *don't* want to organize a party all by my lonesome. Volunteers? Ideas for a party, or just lots of food, drinking, and partying? Dates and times? I'm up for in 2 weeks, either Friday or Saturday the 21st or 22nd, I'm in eastern time zone, but flexible. Otherwise, sometime after Ice Fest. Looking for some feedback,

Category Events and Happenings (29) Topic Community/Player Group Events (9) Message Topic Purpose (1) By DR-MERIEL@PLAY.NET On Apr 8, 2000 at 16:43

After reading over the responses to the informal survey about events, and talking to folks ingame, I've decided that we need a GM who can act as coordinator between player groups to help players create and run events for themselves.

No, I'm not talking about "I find a Solomon-zapping Sword of Ultimate Death and get to keep it" event. Nor is this intended to provide free weddings -- you've still got to go to the Monastery to arrange that. I'm talking about events that you do which may just need a little GM nudge for help. Nothing that involves intense GM participation or creating any sort of item that gives an "advantage". Nothing that promotes any specific GM-player relationship. And, the event must not spark off an Elanthia-wide tribulation, or significantly influence history (for that, we need to start involving a whole slew of other GM departments, and the chances of approval drop dramatically). The Events team will do things like provide small prizes if you're holding a barding... or perhaps auction mechanics if you have a group with a good cause (the Rissans want to collect money to help rebuild the bridge and bank destroyed by pirates, for instance). I have an admitted prejudice against PvP tournaments, so those'd be a hard sell. If you want to do one of those, and expect GM assistance, you have to come up with a really, really interesting way to integrate it into your event as a whole. Or something like a premium community that wants to hold a neighborhood gathering, you could expect that we'd provide some refreshments -- however this is not a premium-only thing. Orders are welcome to participate, too... really, any group of folks who have a good idea that benefits and enhances the gaming environement is welcome to submit an idea.

Gemstone has "house" organizations that are known for running events for their fellows. The annual Aspis House Barding is one of the most famous. What I'm trying to promote is a similar sense that customers can create and enjoy events they have organized and brought off themselves.

Soooooo... please be thinking of what you'd like to do. An event proposal needs to list the players who are participating in the actual mechanics of running it (ie, the auctioneer and the item collector, or the judges and moderator for a barding), who the ONE contact person is for the event, a description of the event, and what GM involvement you need (3 prize medallions for our bardfest, and announcement in the news). Oh, and WHEN it is would be nice, too :>

I'll be announcing a contact email as soon as one is set up, so don't send the proposals yet... just be thinking and preparing them. Please feel free to ask questions here. This is something new for us in DR, and Verac and I will be fielding questions about it here.

Meriel

All who would like to attend a grand Olvi gathering (who knows, maybe we can make this an annual thing?) either post it here or e-mail me!

<<Rascalt, and you were mayor not thain <thwaps Phangor>>>
::chuckles at Rascalt::

  Hey, nice Olvi showing at the renewal of the vows tonight between Monnis and Miabelle, nice seeing you Gabela, Rascalt, Phangor, Fizzia, and Mirandie. By the way, anyone Olvi who wasn't there, Phangor produced and enacted quite a performance. With his permission, I'm going to transcribe the... what would you call it? I'm stuck on "performance" ...transcribe the performance and post it here, seeing as it was well done, veeerrry funny, and involved three wonderful Olvi. I'll work on that tomorrow.

  Far as the party goes, I got to chat with Fizzia and Phangor a bit after the wedding, and we tossed around some ideas. Still looking for more! One thing to think about is, not that we need an excuse for a party, but a theme could be nice. Does anybody know if Glythetide has an annual holiday, and if it's celebrated in the Realms already somehow? Or we could welcome in the Spring Season, but if it becomes an annual party, understand those annual parties could seem a lot quicker than annually if you catch my drift. Although maybe that's not a problem. Ideas folks?

What is the difference between a mayor and a Thaine? Never knew we had both! So that's why I've always avoided Halfling politics. <smack>

If I come back into town and get most of this blood cleaned off of me, can someone give me a quick rundown of who is what and perhaps a quick lesson in thainish etiquette, or whatever?

By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Apr 12, 2000 at 12:35

Zaulwen,

Olvi politics, huh <g>. Let's see... First Thain was Squirt, second Thain was Rascalt, third Thain is humbly myself, Mykk. Back in Squirt's tenure, there was a time when anyone and everyone jumped in and grabbed a title for themselves. No way I can remember them all, but it was all in good fun. For instance, Fizzia I believe was the Gardener of Arthe Dale or something like that.

Phangor was Mayor during Squirt's tenure, and I believe the division went something like this. Phangor, as Mayor, was actually responsible for running Arthe Dale, doing the day-to-day operations and such. "Thain" was more of a "titular figurehead" (is titular figurehead a real phrase, or is my mind making things up?). I kind of see Thain as being a figurehead for all Olvi; as such, I spend my time trying to spread Olvi goodwill, and basically trying not to embarrass myself in front of non-Olvi. (I'd like to think I can embarrass myself completely around my Olvi friends, and they would laugh and forgive me!)

So where does all that leave us? I like my title of Thain if nobody has a problem with that; Rascalt took applications from volunteers and chose me, lucky me. I honor this title more than anything else Elanthia can offer me. Rascalt remains a respected figure as a former Thain. Phangor recently threatened all Olvi by saying we should see a lot more of him now ::poke::. I'd be happy to re-appoint him as Mayor, especially if that means he would do all the work and I would get all the glory, ha-ha! The only other appointment I'm really concerned about at all was a long-standing position of Sheriff. The previous appointment was Danner, who I see still pops in and out, and still maintains a knoll in Berry Knolls. I believe in longevity, so would give him first shot at still being Sheriff if he would like. I'd love to hear from him on this, if anyone knows who could ask him. I'd be more concerned with a Sheriff, except I believe in peace and non-interference. In time, though, I'd like to see that position filled. Also, thanks to a non-Olvi of all people, I'm feeling like I should be more in touch with the Gods of Elanthia that pertain to Olvi, so perhaps would like to see a spiritual leader of sorts, and would personally look to Gabela for guidance in this.

In summary (yes, I always seem to be long-winded, and drinking only makes me worse!), I'd like to think we're all for anything that pulls us together as a race. If someone would feel more a contributor to Olvi by filling in a position they'd like to see, I'm all for it. Titles, parties, speaking Olvi to each other when about the lands, it's all supposed to be for bringing us closer together, and that's what it's all about, right?!

As for your question regarding "Thainish etiquette", umm, I think it's a law somewhere that when you see me, you're supposed to give me a drink and food if you have them! Yeah, that's it! Other than that, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to say. I enjoy my hunting trips, but am not a great hunter, and never really fit into the guild sructure of Elanthia. My guild is Olvi, and my enjoyment comes from seeing Olvi get together and have a good time.

In your service,

Mykk Dalys, Thain

...and for more useless trivia... It was Mykk who got Phangor to give up his cabin and get a knoll! Of course, the draw that first week upper-class knolls came out was that we were going to be able to custom design our exterior description (3 words). The GM's gave up on that pretty quick!

Good thing the authority produced is imaginary, 'cause I nae like any real authority.

But since ye have the belly for the job, I am happy to share tarts and imbibe beverages with ye likes any time. <bounce bounce> Even laugh with ye about nothing in particular, if that is an acceptible form of respect. I do want to hear ye acceptance speach.

And if I have anything to eat, drink, or smoke, I share with Mayor and Thain at any time.

Zaulwen, hello!

Yeah, the "poof! you're mayor" thing was supposed to be funny. I might've thought of something more ceremonious, but a) Phangor was already Mayor before, and b) well.... it's Phangor! <g>

You don't have to worry about ol' Mykk and authority. I'm all about individual freedoms! Not even sure how I landed this job, I think my Papa and Uncle thought I should become more "responsible", and pushed for my nomination. My Uncle might think it will lead to increased sales of the Dalystovski Dalasian wines, who knows.

My foreign and domestic policies hinge on peace and non-interference. There was a time, for example, not too many years ago, that various political leaders thought to formally acquire Arthe Dale under Crossing/Zoluren leadership, and even wanted to base a military headquarters in Arthe. I was on the record at that time vehemently against the movement, which thankfully, died and/or didn't include the Dale.

I never got around to a formal Inauguration ceremony, but my "acceptance speeches" such as they are, are still stuck to the wall around the community house somewhere... [#21 & #22]. Keep your ears open, though, there are rumours of some kind of gathering in the works.

We keep missing each other in the community house! Tell you what, Zaulwen, after the Ice Fest what say you and me (and any other Olvi friends!) get together for a beer. Until then,

At your service,
--Mykk Dalys, Thain

By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        May 8, 2000 at 23:12

Griffina, hi!

Ai, I hope I'm not in the doghouse for not checking up on you, see if you were going to Rascalt's party or not. I brought your name up as someone I thought would be there if you could, but also said you were probably still on Aesry. Anyway, I'm glad you found our little spot in Arthe where Olvi messages are sent and received from all corners of Elanthia. Ever wonder where all the Olvi moon mages are? They're gating our mail for us <g>.

Party summary.... awesome, awesome, awesome. A big Huzzah to Rascalt for single-handedly organizing it. Gods know I enjoyed myself, although it gets fuzzy towards the end. I remember my shirt getting so soaked by egg yolk that it was just saturated, yet my partner Fizzia and I won the egg toss competition? At some point we went to Rascalt's knoll, but then, and here's where it gets a little fuzzy for me, I was at Phangor's knoll. Next I looked out a window, it was daylight. I thought I'd like some fresh air, went for a walk, ended up at the Shrine of Saemaus, where I believe I finally passed out in some fine summer shade!

Okay, that was more of a personal summary, but you get the idea. Special mention goes out to Teminesca for sharing with us all a great story. I was still pretty sober at that point, and I still don't know if it was a story she knew, or one she improvised on the spot. I mean that complimentarily, of course, it was really very good.

Also found out that I was wrong in thinking I knew a lot of Olvi. There were more Olvi there I hadn't met before than those I had.

::goes down Griffina's list::

Actually, I've been gathering some tidbitty info on Olvi lately, when and where I can. But honestly I'm trying to put it together for a, oh, I don't know, trivia-thingy or something. As for good Olvi stories, well, off the top of my head I can't think past Rascalt's party and Teminesca's story! ::laughs::

Next party? I have *no* idea. Frankly, between the Ice Fest and Rascalt's party, I'm ready to go out and make Elanthia a safer place for all adventurers (read: hunting trip!). But next Olvi party someone organizes, I assume we'll hear about it here.

At your service,
--Mykk Dalys

I have just recently read the boards concerning the other Olvi people in the lands. I am very excited to see the bond you seem to have. I have been in Elanthia for quite some time, but have not had the honor to meet many of you. I am married to a Kaldar and she keeps me out hunting so I don't get the chance to mingle much....gotta keep the lands safe from the critters! I would love to get involved in the fun too!!!

Next party I will come and bring food....(I know that is the way to a Halfling's heart!!) Can't wait to meet you all!

I wanna make every other race jealous of us and the parties we throw.

<squints at the dwarf> Meetings are boring... We like to Pahtay! And if you noticed... I do it quite often <g> But you do have a bit of a point there... We Olvi need to start having weekly get togethers so we kin discuss important issues, like tart shortages, and the lack of step ladders in the men's bathrooms. <hums> Ok, to get the ball rolling, Mykk is going to host the first Olvi meeting at his house in Arthe on the ummm... I'll let him pick a day since its his meeting <g> But he going to host it cause he Thain <nods> I'll keep doin the pahtays but Thain boy gonna hafta start doing the meetings <g> And Phangor's job at the meetings will to be make sure everyone has a tart <nods>

Topic: weekly meetings

Hello all fellow Olvi! First I would like to thank an honored guest for coming to visit us, Hegemonic Blessedbe, Marshal of the Stone Clan Militia. Welcome, and enjoy the pleasures Arthe Dale may provide you.

Hegemonic, while chatting with some of us Olvi, asked: <<Why don't you guys regularly meet and stuff. Halflings seem very proud to me of what they are. Would be nice if all the smaller races showed up the taller ones by having all of them holding regular meetings. You even got a great place to do it in Arthe. Just curious>>

This question got me to thinking, so I'd like to offer my opinions only. Opinions. I think we Olvi are a proud race. And Glythtide knows we've got a great place to live in Arthe Dale. But I think we're also a confident race--I don't need to "show up the taller ones" because that suggests, to me, an inferiority complex that I don't have. I love being Olvi because I love being Olvi. If other races can appreciate our idea of living well, I would be flattered I suppose, but wouldn't get any more or less gratification. Whew, hope I'm making sense there.

My next point, Rascalt made for me: <<Meetings are boring>> I see meetings as something done more out of necessity. Otherwise, why split time between "party nights" and "meeting nights"? Might as well throw a party, and if there's stuff to be discussed great, but either way--you got the party! ::laughs:: I also see Olvi really appreciating personal freedoms, and the idea of weekly meeting seems... well... soo.... ORGANIZED! ::grin:: Strict order seems more the providence of our Dwarven friends, perhaps?

Hegemonic, thanks again, feel free to visit us or drop us a message anytime. It's great to share our "little corner" of Elanthia with such fine neighbors as those of Stone Clan.

Message   FYI: Olvi/Dwarf/Gnome heights (repost) (77)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        May 10, 2000 at 23:57

[I'm reposting this from the Gnome boards, actually. Was from a while ago, just happened to find it tonight. --player of Mykk ps: this counts as my "Olvi tidbit", Griffina, and btw, who is GM-Talisker?]
****************************

The average adult Halfling is shorter than your average adult Dwarf, but there are short Dwarves and tall Halflings and there is a fair amount of overlap. My own impression from the information that I have access to (take that as a disclaimer, obviously) is that there is much less overlap between Halflings and Gnomes, with the shortest of the former being roughly in the same range as the tallest of the latter. Notice that I didn't say "no overlap." There are some Gnomes as tall as Halflings and some Halflings as short as Gnomes, it's just that there are not a statistically large number of adults of either race who fit those categories. Take some Gnomes, Halflings and Dwarves, throw sheets over them and you'd be able to separate the Gnomes out pretty easily based on height alone. Halflings and Dwarves would be a little trickier (again, based on height alone) to distinguish from each other, but you'd get it right a large percentage of the time. Add in the rest of the shape & you'd get it right almost all the time ;)

Dwarves just call it meetings. It's a party unless something serious is happening. Some of you may know the bard Bubbinster. He has a song called the stomp of the short brigade he'd sing for us. (Better then the nekkid beer dance) <g> Imagine 30+ dwarves in one room using the dance angry verb around one dwarven Bard belting out "STOMP, STOMP, STOMP" to the point where the very moutain of Stone shook. Ale spilling side to side from our mugs as we march along. Screen scrolling with so and so stomps angrily then another, then another. <g>

Would be a nice thing to see all the Olvi passed out in a bakery, half baked tarts strewn across the room. (chuckle)

Hege

P.S. Make sure someone has a glythtide's gift scroll for the parties. <g>

You up for getting together for that drink? I will be around Arthe (gweth-able too) for another day or two, but then I'm thinking of traveling to Shard. Will need to take care of some family business, keep an eye out for Shard-dwelling Olvi, and hopefully get to do a little hunting.

<Gasps>!....<Swoons at the horrific sight> You let yer ale spill?! Sinful....just sinful. Just fer that I think ye should lose any priveldges of consumption. All stomping dwarves should give up their ales to Olvi, who will treasure and respect the gift, who will tenderly savior every last driblet and be grateful.

Umm should we have a meeting/party to discuss this transaction? Griffina

Mykk,

Gosh, I'd love to drink, especially with fun-lovin' sorts. I started hikin' up to the Dale, and despite the lure of tarts and ale, I was iadvertantly side-tracked by a violent- minded snowbeast. <growls>

Anyway, I finally made it to ArtheDale, just in time for the post-celebration tart shortage. Did I ever tell ye all about my timing ... ? <shudder>

Since I no longer had a destination, I kept on marching and I now find myself knee deep in crocodiles. <grin> They keep me dancing good.

But hey, I happy to skip back down to the Dale for a drink and I'll keep an eye out for ya! Who knows where I will wander after that ... Shard ... 'Haven ... maybe someplace I haven't been recently. <giggle>

Zaulwen, victim of wanderlust

Lo ther! all you Olvi!

Just wanted to say I'm back again, little ol me Augus Destroyer of the Rabid tarts! And I must say in my absence those rabid tarts really got out of hand, I stepped into Arthe and was attacked by sevreal dozen of them jumping on me forcing me to the ground, but I held my ground until the last when I was sadly forced to eat them all in self defense.

Message   New ASSESS verbs (90)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        May 23, 2000 at 10:45

Greetings fellow Olvi players! For those of you who do not read the Talk to Simultronics folder, and to help organize Olvi-specific information in one place, I'm reposting race-applicable information from DR-Talisker's GM Announcement in the Talk to Simultronics folder. For information regarding all the new ASSESS changes in place, see post #36 in said folder and also in-game ASSESS HELP. --player of Mykk, who will appreciate not having to quickly look at every character in every room looking for people who can talk Olvi! Side note: pretty cool messaging even when you are not looking for a specific race.

**************************

ASSESS RACE [silently] - race of people in room.

ASSESS MY RACE [silently] - others of your race.

ASSESS OTHER RACE [silently] - people not your race.

ASSESS RACE <race> [silently] - first person of that race.

--These options can all be followed by SILENTLY to suppress messaging the room.

The first three have limits (of 10 people, I think...maybe some have a 5 person limit) and when you hit them, you'll get the message: You lose track of those in the crowd have already looked at.

This was a measure put in place to limit the resource-intensiveness of the options (like the RT). Read that carefully. It's an absolute limit, put in place at the request of the tech folks, and it's not likely to change anytime soon. Deal with it :)

The last only finds _the first person and only the first person_ of the chosen race, and if you look at too many people searching for that first person, you'll also lose track of who you've already looked at and stop.

The messaging to others for the race options is: Talisker studies the faces around him.

But following it with SILENTLY will mean that no messaging at all is given to others. As a tip, typing ASSESS RACE S will not do it silently, it'll interpret it as ASSESS RACE S'KRA. So might want to get in the habit of typing SI if you don't like people knowing you're doing it.

Is this a halfling only event, or can anyone come? I have a friend named Rhylis who seems to have a halfling's soul in a Gor'Tog's Body..."Good drink good smoke, Rhylis happy." If he can find the place, anyway.

By        PHANGOR@PLAY.NET (The One & Only)

Hello dere folkses!

Arthe Dale continues to flourish. We've had a recent population boom, what with the lovely silversmith and glassblower Kymme and Derque, visiting our lovely inn!

A few weeks ago I brought them to our village and they performed their services for a few lucky folkses! I even gave them free room and board at the inn. If you should happen to see them walking about, tell them I said hi! They are nice peoples.

This month we will be starting a new campaign! We are going to try and get more Olvi to move into our neighborhood. I have taken a survey of the knolls still available in our town, and here is the status report:

Loganberry Place - We have one knoll available here, and just east of here a little ways is an abandoned hillock that is available fer rent.

Strawberry Way - There is an abandoned knoll by the strawberry pots that is available fer rent.

Olallieberry Circle - This is the upper class section of town! We have an abandoned knoll just east and southeast of my own knoll! Hurry and get this one if ya can, it's a doozy of a space!

Boysenberry Crest - There is a lovely grassy knoll available on this road.

Blueberry Lane - What has happened here!? This is a wonderful lane to live on, and there are 2 grassy knolls and an abandoned mound available. Also, south of these homes there is one open knoll, for a total of 4 on Blueberry Lane.

Gooseberry Loop - I know, I know. This is the most unpopular place to live. It's all a bunch of dried out knolls. But you know what? They are still homes, and there are plenty available! When you come upon the first path, go down it. In that section there are 2 dried knolls available. East of there are 2 dried knolls and an abandoned mound. And finally east of the abandoned mound are 2 more dried knolls, and one abandoned knoll.

Don't ferget! What makes the Berry Hills Estates (Heehee, my own clever name!) such a special place to live is because of alllll the yummy berries available. Why, whatever lane you live on, you can pick those berries! Live on Strawberry Way? Well just mosey on over to the strawberry pots and get some deeeeelicious berries. Maybe you live in Blueberry Lane? Well then, there are plenty of berries just growing around you, pick some!

As always, I stand ready to help the people of our village. If any of you Olvi have had yer Estate Papers for 90 andu, and would like to move in but don't have the money. Give me a holler. I am more than welcome to try and help fund yer lovely knoll. (Just the moving in fee, I can't buy you furniture, silly!)

That's it fer now. May yer bellies always be full of tarts and juice!

- Mayor Phangor -

Hello all!

It's been quiet in here lately, thought I'd throw a post out there. I am not going to Simucon, so figure I'll just play with the couple hundred people who are left on-line this weekend <g>. (And it better be lag free...)

I have heard a viscious rumour for those of you headed that way, that Phangor will be performing his "Phangor and the Tartlets" live... and maybe even taping it... Whew, that should be... hilarious! As if I needed another reason to mourn not going this year.

When you all get back, I am going to try to have a meeting of residents of Arthe Dale. This would include any Olvi who considers Arthe Dale their home, whether or not they are knoll owners.

Also want to say thanks to Zaulwen, who took me up on my offer to have a drink together. I recommend him to any Olvi looking for fun and adventure. Anyone else want to get together for a drink? Leave a message, or find me in-game, I'm (still) haunting Arthe.

--- aka Mykk, Thain of Arthe Dale

Hi, I'm planning on seriously developing a halfling character for the first time, and was wondering if I could get some direction on where and how to find the best historical and cultural info on halflings in Elanthia. Websites, in-game resources, docs, anything you can think of would be great.

Much appreciated!!

Hello Flori!

I'm not an expert yet... but given another month or two, I intend to have a comprehensive and hopefully fun collection of Olvi-related info. Then ideally a website.

In the meantime, for in-game questions, please look Mykk up! He's reachable around Arthe and Crossing by gweth, and makes himself pretty easy to find in general.

OOG, drop me an email at: arthedale@email.com I'll answer any questions I can, or will help with any research.

Hope to see you soon! At your service, Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

PS. To anyone out there who would send me Olvi-related info, please do! When I finally get a sizable chunk of information, I will see that it gets posted to the web one way or another, and announce it here. Also, any webmasters out there who could recommend a good hosting service? My needs are small--willing to pay up to $20/mo, 10MB would probably be plenty as I'm going for text info, not the fanciest website. Allowing 2 small websites/domain names on 1 account would be a plus. Personal cgi bin preferred. Thanks everyone!

Me again. Actually, to give credit where credit is due, there is a decent website for Olvi out there already:

Snarfy's Halfling Hole:

http://www.cornhusker.net/~deboert/index2.html

Nice graphic of a smokering-blowing Olvi, great picture of a knoll (though I'm curious where the roots of the tree go)... oh, and some practical stuff too! <g> Some of it is Snarfy's opinions, but he says as much. In particular, though, I would recommend going to his "Halfling Lore" section, and reading through the four links there.

If there are other sites out there, I'd be interested in seeing them. I know of 2 others that seem halfling related, but when I get there, it's more like the character is a halfling, but the websites' focus in not on the Olvi race.

--aka Mykk (and if I forget to sign "player of Mykk" or "aka Mykk", and the post is OOC, my apologies, but so it goes, right? We Olvi are a smart bunch, we'll figure it out LOL)

Theres a book up in Haven, I think on Riverhaven style Olvi. That can be an important distinction, I think. The haven olvi tend to be thinner than the Arthe Dale type, I believe.

Message   Phangor & The Tartlets - The Aftermath (104)
By        PHANGOR@PLAY.NET (The One & Only)
On        Jun 19, 2000 at 13:59

Well, I'm back from SimuCon, where I performed my Phangor & The Tartlets skit! Boy oh boy was I nervous. I'm sure most people noticed that as well. I apologize to anyone who couldn't hear what I was saying, I think I muffled almost all the words. I had a friend who taped it and I hope to see it soon.

For those who didn't attend, what I did was dress up as Phangor, and had two "girls" with me to sing a song. Well, one girl was a real girl (a player from GS) and the other was the Bard Issus dressed up as a girl. Heh! Ask someone who saw the skit to describe Issus to you, it would be appropriate for the boards. <grin> Also, we used spirit gum to put hair on our feet, which turned out REALLY well. When the skit started, I had a the actual girl on my arm and went around the tables very elegantly. I was throwing gold coins at people (actually foil-covered chocolate coins) and the girl had a plate of tarts. When I went to grab a tart, I accidently flung one on Larisah, which got a bunch of laughs. I then shoved a tart in my mouth and could barely eat it all by the time I had to sing. LOL For those who couldn't understand what I was saying, here's the lyrics:

Who's the halfling guy who's never seen a thing he could buy? (Phangor!) You're damn right.

Who's the man that can eat 10 tarts with just one hand? (Phangor!) Right on.

Who's the little halfling brat who's got tons of cold hard plats? (Phangor!) Can you dig it?

They say this cat Phangor is a bald motha- (shut yo mouth!) I'm only talkin' about Phangor! (Eat a tart now!)

He's a fiesty trader-man and no one understands him but his money! (Gold coins!)

And there you go. The evening in a nutshell. I hope those who saw it enjoyed it and laughed. Maybe next year I will have lost my nerves. <grin>

On        Jun 20, 2000 at 19:34

Greetings fellow Olvi!

As you may know, I'm not a big one for meetings, but I have an issue that concerns Arthe Dale and the Olvi community, and I need some input.

Now, rather than pick a time for this meeting, what I am going to do is make myself available for a 2-3 hour time period in Arthe, and any Olvi who can make it during that time, well, I'd sure appreciate getting some opinions. No, I don't wish to post my concern here at this time, for reasons I think you would understand if we could talk about it in person. Should I not get significant input during my "office hours", I will reconsider posting the issue here.

It's important we handle this expeditiously, so Mayor Phangor, please make the arrangments as soon as feasible. Hopefully I will see some of you soon! Anyone who knows they will not be able to make it, (ie. our island-dwelling brethren), feel free to contact me through the normal channels.

--Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

Hi guys!!

We will be holding the meeting this Thursday, June 22nd from 9PM eastern until 11 or 12AM eastern. Mykk and I will be in the inn in Arthe Dale to discuss current events, and how us Olvi can help be a part.

This is not a normal "meeting" per se, but rather we are making ourselves available as Mykk said. We will be just hanging out in the inn, and if you'd like to come discuss just about anything with either of us, we will be there for you guys. :) I hope to see you all there!!

::grin:: Off the top of my head? I'd say you, Griffina, Grayrn, Tiffins... and probably some Olvi hunters that have long since stopped hunting the places I go, LOL!

Usually I try to head out to Surleanis for the winter, but with all the events going on here on the mainland, I've been hesitant to leave Arthe...

For the meeting tomorrow (Thursday) night I'd like to stress that it is an "office hours" style meeting. That means if you show up for 10 minutes at 10:35pm, that's as good as showing up at 9:20pm (9pm-11pm eastern time). Since Phangor and I are just looking for some Olvi input, some of you can spit out an opinion in 2 minutes, the more long-winded of you (like me) could take all night--totally up to you. An Olvi-style meeting, I say, with an open buffet sponsored by the Arthe Hollow Inn!

Hello all,

Thought I'd post a little follow-up. First, I want to thank all those who stopped by. Second, I did get some good feedback. I'm pleased to see some Olvi stepping up for a bit of adventure.

On the flip-side, I think the idea(s) tossed about are best left on hold for the time being. I will let everyone here know if/when the situations change.

Thanks for your support!

At your service,

Message   Road Trip/Olvi Party! (112)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Jul 7, 2000 at 21:20

(Out of necessity, the following is OOC and IC... you can sort out which is which <g>)

Greetings fellow Olvi!

Well, well, well, where to start. A lot of us residents of Arthe Dale consider Stone Clan to be somewhat of a sister-city. And we all know (or you should know) that they have been under a lot of duress lately. And it's winter, and it's cold, and there they are, besieged in their own homes in the mountain, doing their part to save Elanthia. So what better way to help them out than a little ale in the belly, eh? So after discussing their situation a while back at my first "office hours", we decided it's time for a....

ROAD TRIP!

That's right, we'll be gathering up the wagons and supplies this upcoming month (1 week real time), then will head out! We've dispatched a messanger to Stone Clan, and initial response is favorable. We will be gathering in Arthe Dale around 8:00pm eastern time on Sunday July 16th (next Sunday). Then we will make the trek northward to party with some dwarves! They have a meeting at 8pm, so we should hit Stone Clan around 8:30ish. If you're late, better late than never, but I think it would be fun to travel north as a group.

Some things to consider. One, is that I've heard tell that the dwarves aren't really the great drinkers they make themselves out to be. Sure, they'll throw a 40-keg party, but the way I hear it, they spill 20 kegs worth. So be easy on them. Do you know what I think would be interesting? To see who the last partier standing is, Dwarf or Olvi <g>.

Tell your Olvi friends and neighbors, I would like nothing better than to bring more people to their "house" than they can get to show up. We've got roughly 6 confirmed partying Olvi, with another 6 maybes, and who knows how many more. More the better, but we'll have fun no matter who shows up!

That's it for now. I'll keep everyone as up to date as possible on the boards, but am also resurrecting an old Olvi mailing list. If you prefer your news by email, drop me an email at my play.net address above, and I'll get you on.

At your service,

Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

PS--I'll be out of town this weekend, will respond to messages Sunday night.

Only 10? That's not even how much I've had by noon... seesh lightweight.

When you average 200( What the young dwarfs drink in a day)or better a day, then I might hear yer comments about drinkin.

Hey, I gotta leave some for the rest of the guests, I can, and have outdrunk any dwarf that has challenged me to date. I've even drunk Alemaster Durah under the table, This Olvi has stamina and will put any dwarf to shame.

Thanks for checking in Z Cloudbreak, Rascalt, and others, we're up to around 10 Olvi so far! Now, I'm told the Dwarves are good for 20-30 people at their meetings... not saying we have to have more people show up than they do, but "winner" does get bragging rights! Keep spreading the word!

I thought we'd all meet in Arthe Dale around 8pm eastern time, and head up to Stone Clan as a group around 8:30. Everyone know where the Arthe Hollow Inn is? I thought we'd meet there.

Oh, and the Egroups (formerly OneList) mailing list "OlviList" has been ressurected. Anyone interested in chatting with your fellow Olvi by email in addition to/instead of the message boards is welcome to join.

A young dwarf sporting a three braided long beard walks in shyly. He grunt teasingly as he takes his ridding boots, sit on the floor and raises his hairless feet over his bald head...

   "Griffinna!" He calls laudly as he grunts playfully at her "SOmeone ows me a Toe Hair Tickle!"

Hello everyone,

Lot's of Olvi getting psyched for this party folks. Seems like I'm getting in touch with 2-3 of you every night, but there's lots of you I'm missing. Any help getting invites out to your fellow Halflings would be greatly appreciated!

There's a lot of you out there, here's just a couple names off the top of my head though-- Teminesca, Songfire, Ruppi, Maxstreet, Tiffins, Razzleberrie, Soim... I know, "many others"--please get them invited at least.

Thanks!

--aka Mykk

Olvi Road Trip Party, *this* Sunday, July 16th, 8pm eastern time, Arthe Hollow Inn. Destination: Stone Clan <g>

Hiya, folks! I've been doing a great deal of reading in the local libraries (not much else to do in Shard at night...), and I've found books on Human History, S'kra History, even Gor'Tog! There seems to be a lack of Olvi history though. Yes, there's the Arthe Dale story, but that doesn't really trace back very far with our people. Yes, there is the story of the Western bands, but I, for one, am of the the Eastern heritage. Just curious if anyone here had some insight on literature relating. Also, can't wait for tonight! We're gonna outstomp those dwarves *barefoot*!

Good question--and I bet tonight would be a good night to ask around <g>. Philosophical question to leave you all on for now-- if 50 halflings all stomp at one time, and only about 50 dwarves are standing in the same room at the same time, does any one really hear it? --Mykk

Thanks for a great time! Hope to see you around next time SOrrow's minions show their ugly faces... if you are so good to drink and stomp I feel glad to have you as warring partners.

By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Jul 19, 2000 at 23:20

It has been 362 years, 56 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer. It is the 2nd month of Ka'len the Sea Drake in the year of the Emerald Dolphin. A non-descript young halfling man runs into the Arthe Dale Community House and tacks a parchment to the message board:
----------------------------------------------------------------

Every day around Elanthia, there are great Halflings, Olvi to make us proud.

On the 44th day, 362 years since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer, the following Olvi gathered together. They braved a blizzard on a cold winter's day to guide to safety a caravan laden with furs, timber, food and drink for the Dwarves of Stone Clan. Their generosity of time and talents will never be forgotten.

That night, they were rewarded by a fine, fine party of Dwarves and Olvi exchanging traditions and goodwill... *lots* of traditions... and good will... I know the Olvi brought some warmth into the mountains that day and night. I know this because I look outside my knoll 12 days later this second month of Ka'len the Sea Drake, and it is springtime in Elanthia.

I've never been so proud to be an Olvi as I was on that night.

The Great Olvi Roadtrip: Auriol, Blosim, Eadain, Fizzia, Gabela, Griffina, Hipcrey, Mossyoak, Kesstrell, Mykk, Phangor, Rascalt, Ravishing, Venillya, Zaulwen, and Zincir.

OOC: If I've missed a halfling who was there, someone please tell me. I'd rather feel stupid for a little while and have everyone who was there accounted for than not. Thanks!

Was bound to miss somebody--add Tyrathia to the list of Olvi who made the party.

Also, Eadain, if you read these boards... You asked me if there was a regular meeting of halflings. No, there isn't, but as you saw, we're a friendly bunch. Personally, I'd be happy to hang out with you anytime, feel free to look me up.

Message   Halfling vision help (141)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Jul 29, 2000 at 11:57

Greetings fellow Olvi,

This is my first opportunity to write to you about a vision experienced by the Elothean Priestess Kristabelle SnowGlyph. Priestess Kristabelle was kind enough to seek me out to share one of her recent visions, and it goes as follows:

    "You see a peaceful village filled with halflings, each seemingly dedicated to the profession of the Empath. From nowhere, a rising tide of molten lava sweeps down over the village, completely obliterating its denizens. The final, terrified wail of the villagers is all but drowned out by the sound of insane laughter."

A powerfully evil vision at that. I have only one theory so far. I believe this is a vision of the past, based on the history of Sicle Grove. I asked Kristabelle where she had this vision, and she confirmed she was north of Kaerna, which would put her in vague proximity to Sicle Grove. If this is a vision of the past, sad as it is, it is better to mourn than... the alternative.

If anyone else has any insight, please let us know. Thanks again to Priestess Kristabelle for her concern for our well-being, and thanks to Marshal Hegemonic for helping arrange the meeting.

--Mykk Dalys, Thain

Well at Temi and my first wedding we tried to start a tradition. We had a cermonial tart which the bride and groom both took a bite from before they were confirmed married. Sorta like the sipping of the wine cept a tart instead.

I should try to contact Rim... She is in AC Land now I hear but when we married several years back we had a special wedding item crafted. Well she has it on her person but if I can get ahold of her I will ask for it to hold myself.

 It was a GM Made OLVI Ceramonial Wedding pipe. It was real cool cause when we smoked it we had some pretty cool images appear in the smoke.

Congratulations are in order for our friend and fellow Olvi Zincir Cloudbreak to the beautiful Prydaen Mirarva Necodzian!

The happy couple and their guests enjoyed a lovely wedding in Tamsine's Rest. Madrigal Maiyadhin began with an amazing song commissioned by the couple, and Venerable Nicholss led a beautiful ceremony. Great reception after! All around a very classy wedding for a very classy Halfling. Three cheers for Zincir!

Best wishes for both of you from all your Olvi friends!

Zaulwen, good to have you back! I was beginning to wonder. Let's see, what's new. Zincir got married. Griffina nearly led me to my death showing me around Lost Crossing last night. (To her credit, she risked her hide coming back to successfully save me after I got separated and lost, lol). Oh, and Gabela says anybody near the Cleric's Guild in Crossing should stop by and pick on her. If she acts like she doesn't know what you're talking about, just blame me.

I'm also pleased to announce that the Staff of DragonRealms has created a new position of "Race Guru".

This person will be focusing on development of race-related items, verbs, events, etc.

I won't announce who it is yet, just that the position exists. :)

PS The Guru is welcome to announce their identity whenever they want.

Message   Help! My Halfling Mouse-Roar is Broken!! (156)
By        ELFRANGER@PLAY.NET
On        Sep 23, 2000 at 08:28

Hello Fellow Halflings,

My Mouse-Roar is broken and I was told by the GH to find out if other halflings are having this problem and to have them BUG it once.

My Roar no longer "shrieks like a frightened Mouse" but "screams out in anger and frustration".

This is very distressing to me.

Please Help! Thank you, Aliara, the squeaking mouse empath

This post is going to be a lot easier OOC, so there you have it.

If you follow various news and gossip around the realms, you probably already know GM Cadaya was "promoted" to the Race GM. (Don't know if it's a "promotion", but we're still very thankful to have you!) We are all looking forward to any attention to the races we can get.

One advantage, and the issue I wish to address here, is help with announcing times for meetings. Through the grapevine, I know this idea for Halflings comes up.

My position on meetings is partly IC, partly OOC. IC, I've always thought Halflings weren't as disciplined as some races when it comes to holding meetings. (I take this from our penalty to learning discipline.) I like to think of our race as "footloose and fancy free." Why try to make weekly meetings when there are lands to explore, and parties to eat and drink at? Someone (even me) might suggest that instead of calling them meetings, we could call them parties, and I agree! But when the "parties" become a weekly event every Wednesday at 9pm... well, then it starts getting a little too organized for my tastes.

It's my nature to play Devil's Advocate, although in this case, my "pro-meetings" stance becomes a little more OOC. With a Race GM actively working for us, we have an opportunity to gather more effectively. And I know from my friends and travels that the Halfling community is a strong one. We are not to be overlooked! (Heh.)

So what I'd like to suggest/offer is this. If there are players who feel there should be weekly (or whatever) meetings, then we as a community should work towards that goal. It's funny--OOC I don't feel up to yet another DR obligation, but since I let Mykk pretty much do what he wants, he would certainly work towards holding them. Begrudgingly maybe, but as Thain, he would do whatever it takes. So if the players want meetings, what I'd like to see happen is someone else to pick up the torch and run with it. Know that Mykk and I will assist as much as we can. Phangor is very good at organizing things, I'm sure he'd help too. Or maybe run them, heck, he's Mayor ;-)

My largest gathering to date has been to organize our first Olvi Road Trip Party, when we went to visit the Dwarves in Stone Clan. I was able to get a lot of Olvi to show up, and for that I'm eternally grateful to all of you. But I think part of it was that it was set up to be a "big deal." If I had to gather that same crowd every week, I wonder if some of the fun would be sacrificed, and people would start to think, Oh whatever, another meeting... I'm in Shard, forget it.

I guess that's it. Short post as always, eh?

Except for a couple posts, these Olvi boards have been pretty empty recently. And we don't have an active OneList/Egroups list for me to use as an excuse either! (We do have one, "OlviList", we just don't use it; I will try to copy this to the list, and if anyone responds on the list, I will copy it here for them.) Posts don't make or break the game for me, but here's a suggestion. If your Olvi character has a story to share, consider sharing it here! Doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just something to let us know what you're up to once in a while!

Meli, how are things up in Theren working out for you? Phangor threw a tart party recently at the Crossing's Town Green. I could run through the usual list of Olvi in the realms I know of, but you get the idea. I'll try to start things off with one of my favorite stories recently involving Griffina and Mykk (I can see Griffina grimacing now, but really, she was a hero and just doesn't want to admit it!).

Like I said, no big deal either way. Frankly, I think there are people who spend more time on the boards than in-game, which I find quite humorous, really <g>. I'm not trying to trade in-game experiences for a more active board. I guess what I'm saying is that unless you want the next 20 posts over the next three months to all be from the NORTHWIND account, you can't blame anyone but yourselves, LOL!

Message   Griffina, Mykk, and Lost Crossing (159)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Sep 23, 2000 at 16:20

Mykk and Griffina Explore Lost Crossing

::Mykk packs his cherrywood pipe with some taffelberry tobacco, and sits back in his chair::

Griffina asked me the other day if I'd like to go exploring Lost Crossing with her. I accepted, of course; I always like to explore new areas, never know what you might find.

On our way there, we were joined by the Elf Besoro, so we decided to explore as a threesome. Lost Crossing involves a couple of things that I should mention up front: swimming and death spirits. I was told we would run through the haunted areas to relative safety. I didn't know how far we would have to run, though. Swim, actually, and Besoro's swimming skill left a little to be desired.

With Griffina leading the way, we made it, although I was scared at how many spirits we passed on the way, and they all seemed hungry for our souls. In one room, there was a desk, and they told me I should examine it. It was sooo interesting, I was stunned for a full minute. Ha ha, very funny Griffina and Besoro!

A couple rooms later, it was Besoro's turn to study an object and become stunned. Only we weren't as safe as we thought we were, and a death spirit came into the room! As fast as Griffina and I could charge, it didn't help Besoro in time. The spirit saw easy pickings, and too quickly, Besoro was struck down! I'm very pleased to say I successfully killed the dreaded spirit, although afterwards, I was shocked to find out death spirits are NOT the same as dark spirits. A lesson learned!

::Mykk sighs::

This was not a good situation for us, my friends. Deep in Lost Crossing is not a good place to die, not that any place is good, but getting help down there is wishful thinking. So after some debate, we decided Griffina would attempt to drag Besoro all the way out with myself following as best I could. Every room it seemed, one or two death spirits would advance on us, and Griffina would drag Besoro just in time. I would follow. A couple of times, we were engaged at melee, and had to retreat.

However, in the thick of one "battle", I became separated from the group, and promptly found myself lost, and at a dead end with a grate. I could not open, unlock, or otherwise travel through this grate, and that's when the spirits started coming in. I hid, and watched as a third came in, then a fourth...

Out of alternatives and hope, I moved north from where I was, and lo and behold, saw a ladder I missed the first time. I climbed it, and who would be there, but Griffina! That wonderful little Olvi lass, she not only dragged Besoro to safety, she actually had the courage to re-enter Lost Crossing to find me! She led me out successfully, and then still managed to drag Besoro all the way to the Cleric's Guild by herself. I'm still amazed.

Griffina doesn't like this story. She feels guilty for taking me somewhere that really should've meant my death. Me, on the other hand, consider it yet another grand adventure in Elanthia. Besoro died, but we really thought the room we were in would be free of spirits. Griffina single-handedly dragged a dead Elf to safety, and actually came back to rescue me. That makes her a heroine in my book, and is the end of this story.

Thanks for listening!

::Mykk smiles warmly::

Well, Mykk darlin, ya wanted news, so here goes:

Creepers give out free cigars. I was so thrilled to learn this, and lotsa hunters are happy to let me have them as part of my tip. A'course, they usually also want to see the wonderful shapes that only we Olvi can create with the smoke. ::preens:: Marauders are terribly flirtatious. They're constantly comin after the girls, wanting kisses and such, and when we refuse, they try to kill us! They simply won't take "No!" for an answer. ::sighs::

I see a lot of Paladinish people up here, since ya'll know that it's a guild-based town. They have nice fluff here. If I could only wear the gorgeous cap I bought with my kitchen pot helm, we'd be in business. And do I have new pouches and places to stick things.

Anyway, nearly everyone up here is wonderful, and very appreciative of the help I can provide. There are even a couple of people I don't even need to ask anymore if they need a touch, I simply spot them and touch. Saves my voice for screamin for help. Don't see too many people my height. Either it tires out our short legs to walk up here (which was the case with me, but then I cam up from Shard and commute every so often), or we're too free-wheelin to be here long. I adore Paladins, Courage is a wonderful spell) but some of them are so blinkin stuffy. Get this: I was actually bowed to. More than once. I didn't have the heart after that to tell them I'd rather have a drink in one hand and a tart in the other than a fancy ceremony like that. Oh well.

I'll scribble up another note and send it on down to the Dale later. Meli da Meanie

PS- Creepers and vines and marauders are quite nasty. Nearly everyone up here is past 25 or so trainings with their guild. if you're young, the free cigars aren't worth the deaths. There aren't always Clerics around.

On        Sep 26, 2000 at 12:49

I nae a big fan of weekly meetings, mintues, action items, prompt start times, prompt dismal times, pomp and circumstance, and other such dreary nonesense. However, I LOVE the company of other Olvi, the exchange of stories, the inbibement of wonderous fluids, the taste of fine foods, the pleasures of sweet deserts, the feel of combs through the hair on my feet, and the smell of tobacco in the air.

If any Olvi care to gather for that purpose on a more frequent basis, then I would be more than a little pleased to join in.

Of course, I also LOVE the thrills and pleasures of going places never before gone (and surviving), see things never before seen (and surviving), hunting things never before hunted (and surviving), and learning things I never before knew (and surviving).

So, fellow Olvi, I encourage all to experience the true love-of-life at an Olvi gathering or the true love of combat (on a right-sized scale) with on Olvi horde!

The Best part of the Road trip was the Olvi doing the Lord of the Dance routine during the Stomp. My sides hurt imagining this column of stomping dwarves marching in line, and this Olvi doing a Jig like a leprechaun through the ranks. (chuckle)

After all, shouldn't Olvi barbarians have their own unique styles of dancing?

Happy to hurt your sides laughing and I look forward to our crossing paths again.

Parties! I'm all for parties. But meetin's. I dunno...sumthing about that word makes me think of sittin in a hard chair fidgitin and squirmin when I'd rather be out explorin.

Zaulwen gave me a good idea when he said:

"Of course, I also LOVE the thrills and pleasures of going places never before gone (and surviving), see things never before seen (and surviving), hunting things never before hunted (and surviving), and learning things I never before knew (and surviving)."

Zaulwen may be a barbarian in a wee olvi body, but he also has a ranger heart I see!

If we olvi want ta gather and enjoy each other's company more, I say we do more stuff like tha Great Olvi Road Trip (heck maybe we can even invite some dwarves along sometime, as long as they promise ta keep their stompin to a minimum.) We could go on adventures and explorin parties, seek out new places (or old ones) take other olvi out huntin, and do interestin stuff like find them mysterious mushroom spoors or solve that annoyin maze in Tamsine's Rest. (Well, on second thought, ye might havta drag me kickin and screamin into that maze)

Well, I think Lucky gave me some weird raccoon flu, so I'm gonna go hunker down in me bed again. Hope me babblins made some sense.

Hi folks!

Sorry I haven't been leaving any notes lately, I've been very busy keepin' up with business in Zoluren.

Recently Mykk, Fizzia and I got together and talked for a while. We came up with an idea to have a little block party in the knolls neighborhood. It would be a time to get together and have fun with your neighbors in the berry knolls!

If anyone is interested in partyin' down, lemme know and we'll set something up.

Sincerely,

Mayor Phangor

P.S. - If any Olvi are in need of a nice knoll, there are still plenty available. If you can't afford one, let me know and I'd be happy to pay for the deed to your new home!

Hate meetings. LOVE gatherings and parties, so long as they are not too formal (yuck). I am not noted for planning to good, but if you give me an idea when, I tend to try and show up not too late! <giggle>

And Meli, I was glad to be a planned part of that fearsome Olvi horde that was going to descend upon Therenborough <giggle>. I am very sorry to hear about the worrisome events that stole your happiness. I always wish there is something I could do to ease such pain. The best I can do is send wishes that your sorrows vanish with the next breeze and prayers that happiness is again yours in a near tomorrow.

Thoughtfully, Zaulwen

LOL, look what you started, Meli, you've got your own topic now. Still planning on getting up to Theren with Mykk and friends soon for our "surprise" visit.

Jeorgie, if you're listening, we'll try to pick you up on our way through Riverhaven. It's about as close to an "Olvi meeting" as we get. Any closer, and we'd have to call it a meeting! On the agenda for things we need to discuss is nothing--that's the point! We all just heard of a fun-loving sounding Olvi up in Theren, and thought she deserved a visit. So that's all we're doing, just traveling up for the sake of a few drinks, tarts, and cigars. You would be very welcome to join us, and Zaulwen is out your way, you should keep an eye out for him.

Alrighty that's it! I been deserted here on Aesry. I'm coming home where there's always a shoulder my height to cry on. Besides I can't very well have Mykk meandering on and on about my morals and character. Heck others gonna start thinking I'm good or something and wanna pinch my cheeks and pat me on the head. Ughh! I hate that. Anyways hope I ain't missed anything, and hope to see y'all real soon. On a side note I was visiting Taisgath with a Pally friend...gotta love them Pallies and those feelings...Anyways was there and exploring and studying. Seems that obelisk is spitting out some new clues and hints to something. I ain't of the Moonie mind so i didn't understand all of it. But it was something interesting to see. Even got to see a meditation done by a loonie with blood and everything. Frightened the beejeebers outta me, worse than them Spirits in the sewers. Tootles fer now!

Just in case you read the Halfling folder but not "The Eleven", I've reposted GM Cadaya's meeting announcement below. (General Races meeting, Saturday 10/14 3pm eastern, Crossing Amphitheater, no portals etc.).

Two things. One, is I expect to be there of course. Wouldn't mind an Olvi friend or two planning on going as well in case I can't make it, and would make a log. Two, do you players of Halflings have any racial-based concerns/suggestions I should try to bring up?

(OOC Vision: The gypsy peers into her crystal ball and sees a bit of what the future might have in store for Mykk's player... She sees... yes, there are children present... The clock says 2:48pm, and Mykk's player is... putting a video tape into the VCR! He's booting up DR... wait, Mykk's player is getting ready to unleash a string of expletives! But he seems stymied by the children present! What's that he mutters? Something about being in Shard? The mist envelops the ball, and the vision is lost.)

 Greetings,

 On Saturday the 14th, at 3 PM Eastern, there will be a General Races meeting. This will give people a chance to meet me and the Race Champions, and it'll give everyone a chance to hear some of the things we've got planned, as well as ask some questions. If you're interested in Racial Development, you should enjoy this meeting.

 It'll be held in the Crossing Amphitheatre. Transportation will not be provided, period, so if you want to be there, make arrangements. We're giving plenty of notice.

 This announcement will also be put in the Race News in the game, tomorrow.

 Regards,
  Gamemaster Cadaya

Better remove your post for using a newly banned word as an expletive (even in your thoughts) before a BM gets to it. Just some friendly advice.

Message   Rhook & Fial I wanna wiggle my toes! (184)

I think wiggling toes would make for a great halfling verb, and while your tinkering with our toes, could you make it so we can smooth out our feet hair? and of course while I'm making requests... Prydaens get to choose markings on their fur, and rakash get to choose their mane stuff... Do you think its possible that we can just have foot hair added to our descriptions? Make it the same color as our normal hair, I think it would look really neat to have in a halfling's description: You see Rascalt Firetribe, A halfling He has brown hair that is loose, brown eyes, and brown foothair... maybe in the character manager you can give us the option of no foothair, different colored foothair, or you can make it long, short, curled, wavy, just like hair styles... and for us olvi who are already out adventuring.... You can set up a booth for us to go and get our foot hair styled for us. <g> Ok I'm done babbling and suggestiong for now... Fellow Olvi, Support me on this!!

Rascalt, wants foot hair and the ability to wiggle his toes

I am for toe wiggling. Even better if I can grab things with my feet when seated or lying down, or standing on one foot. It would be a great way for bare-footed Olvi to get things from off the ground without bending over. <grin>

Message   Race meeting synopsis from 10/14/00 (186)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Oct 16, 2000 at 12:15

Hello Olvi-players,

Obligatory post regarding the General Races Meeting from 3pm edt Sat 10/14:

 1) 3pm on a Saturday--not such a good time for a meeting.
 2) I was the only Olvi who showed up until Rascalt popped his head in at 3:30.
 3) I told several Olvi players of the meeting during the week, none could make 3pm Sat.
 4) Our Halfling Gurus, Fial and Rhook, were also conspicuously missing.
 5) It was all I could do to clear up 3:00-3:30 just to make the meeting, which started at 3:15.
 6) I didn't get a single thing from the meeting I didn't already know from reading the boards. Cadaya is the new Race GM, Fial and Rhook are our personal Race Gurus.

If I missed anything after 3:30, then too bad for me I guess. I apologize for sounding negative on such a positive issue overall. I guess it's the fact that I assumed (correctly as far as I know) that if I didn't make it, we wouldn't have a single Olvi there. Then to have the meeting start late and be just an in-game reiteration of what I already knew on the boards, and not getting to at least say Hi to Fial and Rhook, was disappointing.

--aka Mykk

You missed absolutely nothing after you left Mykk, It was very very uneventful. Even the questions asked where things that had already been asked at the previous meetings.

Well dagblasted! This is truly sad. Maybe if we ask real nice we can try to get just a halfling meeting with our gurus. Something less formal and quicklike and maybe at a better time for all. Well just a thought. Let me know if I can help in anyway.

Also, Rascalt if yer up near Theren way for one of yer Lil people invasions, do let me know. I'd love to be involved.

Hey Kinfolk!

The other day I was speakin wid Wilibald and Daisy Burdock in the Arthe Hollow (in Arthe Dale of course!), and they was telling me abouts how quiet dere Common room has been lately. Dey was saying dat business was going, but not well. I couldnt understands why! Burdock's Ale is great! And so be the fizz! And Daisy's stew be renowned! The inn is cozy, and dey be friendlyish enough peoples, so why shouldnt business be going well?

So I was hoping we could show dem a bit more support, and go sit tell some stories, have some laughs and give dem a nice warm toast! I'll even bring a Tog so we can have climbing races or sometin (doh I dunno if a Tog can stand in dere).

A few peoples will be dere Friday starting at 7pm EST. Come on over an sit wit us if ya want :)

Hello fellow Olvi!

Hope you don't mind if I respond to a few notes I've seen lately on one parchment <g>.

Storyteller Teminesca-- THANK YOU for posting your adventure!!! ::cheers to Rascalt and Teminesca for being two great Olvi explorers:: And also, I just have to say, I love your voice. I could listen to you tell stories all day.

Griffina-- Finished that little business I just had to take care of. Ready to do a little exploring with you again, and am still in Theren.

Melindhra-- Get back from whatever business *you* are taking care of--I'm in Theren for gods' sakes!

Karnian-- You go, Olvi! I love the Arthe Hollow Inn, and am a frequent customer. But unfortunately, like much of the Village itself, I don't come across many halflings who have a minute to talk. Actually, in the Inn I've only met *one* new Olvi I'd never met before. The good news is he was Maxstreet, an outstanding Halfling in my opinion. As for getting together, I can make the day you picked out, but not the time [Friday the 27th 7pm eastern]. A few hours later maybe. If I miss you this time, be it time, or the fact... I'm in Theren! (see above), I'd love to knock a few back with ya sometime. Watch out for Grandma's Tea too, it's got a bit of a bite to it.

Okay, long missive, so I'll try to wrap up. Just wanted to also say thanks to fellow Olvi Fizzia and Zaulwen, had a great time at the fireworks! And before we went there, Zaulwen just couldn't grasp the concept of carving the jack-o-lanterns (hard to blame him), so Fizzia and I convinced him it was a sacrifice for Saemus. Zaulwen made said sacrifice at Seamus' shrine! On top of that, at the shrine we met Spartope the Dwarf, and yet another fine dwarf at that! He had the good sense to join us for our partying.

Thanks for listening to me ramble,

Mykk Dalys

Gosh Mykk! I must 'ave just missed ya!

I was in Theren for awhile terrifying the rams and wolves. <grin> I went further south to get some crocodile skins for a project of mine, and I am now heading back north to play with the rams and wolves some more. I hope to see ye and other Olvi friends about Theren sometime soon.

During my recent adventures, I encountered an Olvi Bard in Riverhaven. I think her name is Kalpernia. She was a bit down as some of the twicelings were mocking her right size. She was irritated that they had the nerve to set their drink upon her head and joke that it was just right height. I cheered her up. I suggested that only a fool would trust an Olvi with their drink, let alone an Olvi bard. I told her, next time they set a drink upon ye head, snatch it up and guzzle it down! Then ask if they have more! That will teach them. With a smile on her face, she went on her way to take revenge upon the critters which last injured her. Woe be to them.

Hi all! Halfling Ranger here.. is there anyway we could have a BIT more history done? Is that something our Champions are working on? :nudge: I started to write a character history ('bout time after almost four years. :cough:) and I could find NOTHING of interest in the books to use in my story line! I watched my RL hubby do a history for his S'Kra Ranger, and he has all sorts of neat stuff from clans to words in the S'Kra language. Will there be any history development for us short, hairy footed folks? Thanks for any responses. :)

You know, I have kinda wondered. Seeing as how every other race board seems to have a post or more from their Champion but this one and the S'Kra board, and I happen to know that the S'Kra Champ just can't post quite yet. Soo.. Fial, Rhook, where are ya!?

Easy there, Rascalt <g> When he/she/they do finally post, we don't want to give them the impression we're stuck on the message board mentality of "give me everything I want, and give it to me now." I know we were all excited at first to get a couple gm's championing our cause, but you know what? If they never did one thing for us, halflings will still always be a great race full of great personalities and roleplayers. AND we'd be no worse off than before. So really we've got nothing to lose.

What I'd recommend to anyone reading this folder is if you have any ideas of what they could work on, put them together and post them here. First thing they are going to do if they haven't done already is read the folder. Personally, I asked around for ideas from people, and pretty much the most I've got is "verbs for our feet." I assume you all mean foothair (?), since having feet isn't so race-specific <g>; in the meantime, get a footbrush ::wink::

As far as our racial history goes, of course it's on their plate, and probably near the top. Now, nobody is saying we can't contribute ideas towards that, too, so why not post any ideas? Personally, I've got 3-4 ideas (generic, not historical) for Halflings, and when I have time to put them down to my satisfaction, you'll read them here first!

--player of Mykk

PS Afterthought here--I'd rather see the gm's take a year putting out a quality history for us than throwing out a questionable, spotty history to pacify us.

I'd like to think that the message we're giving is "We're very passionate about our race and about the direction it takes, and would really appreciate it if someone could drop in and say "Hi, we're here, sorry we didn't make the meeting! We'll give an update on what we're planning when we have time."

And as for being worse off, if most of the other races are moving forward with history and verbs and we aren't.. I would feel worse off. :shrug: I personally really care about the history of *every* race, though particularly the ones that I am firmly attached to, such as the Halfling race. I would *love* to see DR end up with racial histories as rich, complex and fascinating as those of an old RPG called Earthdawn.

<<PS Afterthought here--I'd rather see the gm's take a year putting out a quality history for us than throwing out a questionable, spotty history to pacify us.>>

As would I. I'd just like a note saying "Yup, we're working on history!". I think communication is the key here. :)

I agree, 100%! I just don't want to see 20 posts (which would be 10% of our folder, heh) bashing the champions. (Of course, another way to prevent that would be for them to post, lol).

I think Rascalt and I share a mutual respect, so I can "call him out" so to speak. That was like his fourth post about our champions in 3-4 days, each one getting more... poignant <g>. I'm worried that by post #7 or #8 he'd be organizing a Million Halfling March on St. Louis!

<<"We're very passionate about our race and about the direction it takes, and would really appreciate it if someone could drop in and say "Hi, we're here, sorry we didn't make the meeting! We'll give an update on what we're planning when we have time.">>

Umm, yeah. ;-)

I know for a fact that Rhook's buried up to his chin in keepin the pathies happy. He does read the boards, though. Fial, I think, is also a pathie person- I'm pretty sure that I've seen the name bandied about on those boards. Since the Guild is feelin neglected ability and spell and attention wise, it may be a couple of weeks.

I do strongly support the idea of us posting our ideas here. If all else fails, it might give them ideas to build off of. I know I would just get a heckova kick out of knowing that one of my ideas was incorp'rated into something this big.

Greetings everyone :)

To answer your questions...

All the champions are currently working on History for their race, and rather than release tidbits, we have all decided to wait till we have a finished product. This serves a two fold process. 1) It allows us to release it without the fear of having already contradicted ourselves in some tidbit we had already released. 2) It gives you a lot more information to sort through rather than trying to piece meal what will eventually be coming.

It's frustrating I know - It's frustrating for us as we work on these to want to release things to you, seeing what we already have, and know the time just isn't right yet. As it's been said in the past, we chose the races we work on, so writing things like histories is a sense of pride for races we all call our own. We don't want to give you shabby work, anymore than you want it. Hang tight - I won't say "soon", or try to give you a rough date, all I can do is ask be patient - the wait WILL be worth it.

Tribanin

Its not the history I'm worried about... its the communication... I'd just like to see Rhook or Fial drop by and say, Hi I'm working on the history right now and would love to know what you think should be added in or something along that line.

Rascalt, feeling the halflings are the only ones who have champions but no communication with them.

Heya! Thanks for posting here and letting us know what's up. I'm very glad to hear that History is being worked on. :) I think I, and others, are also upset that our Champs haven't taken the few seconds and said "Hi!", though I am glad to know at least in part what they are working on. Thanks agin for introducing yourself and telling us this! :)

Guys,

Don't forget that Rhook is the Empath Liaison, and as such, she has much on her plate as it is. Fial is the substance guru, and is completely re-writing alchemy as we speak, so he is also very busy. Also, GMs aren't required to read or post here, and we may have two GMs who aren't big message board readers...

As a fellow peace-keeper, I'm willing to give our Champions at least as much or more leeway than most in DR. But as Rascalt said, Tribanin (thank you for posting btw) missed our concern, it's not about the history as we've all said we'll wait patiently for a quality history, it's about the communication. Tappuah worded this concern very nicely too, I'm not going to paste it again though.

GM's aren't required to read or post on the boards, we know. However, if you're going to champion a race, wouldn't it make sense to read your race's folder? And if the two of them are so busy they can't post a hello, how much time will they have for Championing our race anyway?

Just to reiterate my position, though, I'm still pretty non-chalant about the whole thing. My enjoyment playing halflings doesn't hinge on whether we even have champions or not. I truly think at this point it's just that the people who post here (and the lurkers who don't) feel a little slighted that we didn't even get a hello.

Message   Rude champions finish last! (208)
By        JBEATLE@PLAY.NET
On        Nov 6, 2000 at 14:44

Champions who do not say "hi" and thank you to the warm welcome that they had previously received in this folder ... finish last! To shun Olvi hospitality is shun all Olvi! I may be barbaric, in fact I can be quite barbaric for an Olvi, but I nae forget what my mother teach me about Olvi hospitalities. And look what it leads to ... a dwarf makin' excuses for our supposed kin. They gonna need ta do more than discover our histories and make better cigars in order to recover from this outrage. Such a sad day for we Olvi ....

Zaulwen, berserk with rage

OLVI NEWS FLASH!!!

Halfling tag-team wrestling match. On one side of the Village Green, we have Rascalt and Zaulwen, sharpening the guillotine. On the other side, peace and love preachers Phangor and Mykk. We'll let Tappuah moderate ;-)

PS, Phangor, my money is on Rascalt and Zaulwen.

Denying this wrestler tarts, especially in the midst of a high-spirited disagreement about essential Olvi ettiquette, is a sure fire way to bring out a berseker rage! For the sake of all, please share. Asides, appreciation for Olvi hospitality is what I all alarmed about. Can't ye be settin' a good example?

Message   Melindhra's New Knoll (217)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Nov 17, 2000 at 10:41

Greetings everyone!

Please join me in welcoming our newest knoll owner to Arthe Dale! Melindhra has purchased the abandoned knoll in prestigious Olallieberry Circle. It's located in the eastern section, and she soon plans to have ivy covering her knoll.

Melindhra considers herself a lucky lady, and I agree. Her knoll was the only knoll up for sale on Olallieberry Circle, and I don't see any of the other owners moving out any time soon. Active neighbors on her street include Phangor, Cloudcrest (a very honorable Dwarf and friend, living in Scryy's knoll), and myself. The potential for a neighborhood party just got better!

On a personal note, Melindhra, I had a great time touring the available knolls in Arthe Dale with you, and I'm excited you chose to live where you are. Friends, Meli is a wonderful Olvi, and a Battle Empath of some reknown in places as far away as Shard and Therenborough. If you see her, please say Hi!

--Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

Message   Waving the banner abroad. (224)
By        WRENNIC@PLAY.NET
On        Nov 18, 2000 at 06:56

Just thought I'd stick my head in and say hello; I play Maximilien Tredannon in Plat, one of relatively few halflings over here (of course, there're relatively few of everything over here) and while Max perhaps is a bit more a.. businessman.. than a Halfling, his Olvi heritage plays a pretty strong part in his behavior: however 'serious' he is, humor rules. <grin>

If there's anything I can do for you folks on the more populous side, just let me know, I'd be glad to oblige.

As for the whole Champion business--something is a thousand times better than nothing, and a reassurance that they're Doing Something About Things (even from a Dwarf) is enough satisfaction for me. I look forward to seeing their work when it's done.

Regards,
-Wrennic (Max Tredannon, etc.)

Message   Bards in the Arthe Hollow Inn! (231)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Nov 30, 2000 at 13:34

Hello everyone,

Saw an announcement posted in the Arthe Hollow Inn. While it's not an Olvi issue, it holds great potential for good times if you're into enjoying bardic performances.

 WHAT: Bardic Performance by Dreamheart!
 WHERE: Arthe Hollow Inn
 WHEN: Saturday night, 11pm eastern time

Drinks, tarts, and any bard or bards, but especially Dreamheart--you can pretty much figure I'll be there!

Hope all my Olvi friends are enjoying the new temple and festival. Don't miss the Roaring Mouse tent!!! You'd need a separate vault just to store all the different Olvi weapons, shields, and armor.

I've been enjoying my time hunting in Theren with fellow Olvi Melindrha, Zaulwen, Fizzia, and Eadain. Briefly hunted with an Olvi I'd never met before, Karnian, he seems great. Bumped into another Olvi named Frankko, but didn't get to talk to him much. Found out Melindrha dies when she's newly restored to life and takes on three marauders while getting her items from her where she just died--and she calls herself a Battle Empath, hah! Just kidding Meli, sorry about our last hunting trip...

Wow, just realized Karnian was the one who was trying to get a little gathering together going at the Arthe Hollow Inn a little while back. Wish I had remembered that when I met him in Theren! Safe hunting to you Karnian, we'll meet again soon.

At your service,

Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

Message   A HUGE Thank You (233)
By        DAERLYNN@PLAY.NET
On        Dec 4, 2000 at 08:36

A huge hug and a thank you to all of the wonderful halflings (and I was so swamped with whispers and all that I did not get all of your names, or I would thank you all by name)that attended the concert by Dreamheart at the Arthe Dale Inn on Saturday night. You guys just made my heart so warm, and ... well.. I just can't thank you all enough.

As expected, Dreamheart was WONDERFUL! An inspiration to all Bards..

We plan on sponsoring another concert hopefully on Dec 16. I hope that you all can make it to this one as well. At this point, we have no confirmation on who the Bard will be. Just so you know, all Bards are welcome to perform, as are non-Bards.

Once again, thank you. You are all making myself and Maiyadhin, my spouse (I am human, she is Elven) feel truly welcome in our new home in Arthe Dale.

Daerlynn Soulmyste

Greetings,

Nothing too much going on, just felt like poking my head in and saying hi.

::goes through his notes:: Let's see... Oh, Daerlynn, you're very welcome. I think you'll find where there are fine arts (or is that tarts?) to be appreciated, you're also likely to find a couple Olvi. In the case of Dreamheart's Concert, I seem to recall seeing Glaerith, Ruppi, Karnian, Teminesca, and Melindrha. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Melindrha and Glaerith made me proud the other night. I felt fellow Olvi Aslath gwething for help in Lost Crossing on my J&K gweths. (I have to mention I'm the one who heard him, because it was my only part in this adventure.) Without blinking an eye, an impromptu rescue party was formed, and before I knew it, off go the women, Meli, Glaerith, and the Human Cleric Lyvvia, leaving the men, Rakish Conswirloo and myself to hold the luggage ::chuckle::. As good fortune would have it (for Aslath's friend), another fine cleric of the lands had him already raised and back to life, although I'm sure Melindrha made sure everyone was healed up before they left.

Heading to the Ballroom in Lost Crossing and back is not for the faint of heart, and to Melindrha and Glaerith, I raise my stein to your brave deeds!

I guess that's it. Except for the occasional hunting to keep limber, I'm pretty much holed up in Arthe in case war breaks out. Any younger Olvi who otherwise would otherwise be locked up in a room during the war are free to join me when it goes down. That isn't to say we still won't lock ourselves up somewhere, but at least we'll have some food and drink!

Be safe all,

At your service,

Mykk Dalys 363 years, 225 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.

You toss your almond tart towards Lord Sorrow's army. The tart sails high in the air, before catching a S'lai soldier in the chest. He lets out a bloodcurdling scream from the pain.
[Roundtime: 4 seconds.]

Hehe, start gathering them tarts up... and throw tart at army... we'll kill them with our home cookin!

lol, good one, Rascalt! As coincedence would have it, I'm relying on our home cooking for defense as opposed to your offense. I'm carrying one cup of Grandma Tanglefoot's Tea. If Darkensi, Sorrow, or whoever corners me for a "talk", I'm going to show some Olvi hospitality and offer him a sip. When he does, and falls on his rump, that's my cue for my little hairy feet to take Mykk to safety!

You catch the Mage completely off guard. The Mage attempts to avoid desert and fails miserably. The tart lands a devastating hit, breaking the Mage's teeth and causes complete loss of appetite complicated by severe indigestion. The Mage is severely stunned, never having encountered any weapon so terrible before. The Mage expires, hoping that none of her peers witnessed her terrible demise.

Message   Second Bardic Concert (244)
By        DAERLYNN@PLAY.NET
On        Dec 14, 2000 at 12:07

Due to the war, the second bardic concert will be held in the Bard's Corner of the Half Pint Inn in Crossing, instead of the Arthe Dale Inn. We are honored to feature the exquisite Bard of the Roses, Dewsong DeRosa.

I would be honored if the Olvi people would support this concert as well as they did the first. Please be assured that as soon as travel can be safely re-established, our concerts will return to Arthe Dale. After all, it is our home as well!!

Remember.. take a break from the war to hear a wonderful Bard perform. Dewsong DeRosa, Saturday night at 11 Eastern, in the Half Pint Inn.

Sounds good, Daerlynn, except... what if you're already IN Arthe Dale??? lol Everytime I peek out the gate there's an Archer or Mage or Commander or Warrior all waiting to lay waste to poor little ol' me. If I can find safe passage, though, of course I will be there! --Mykk

Complaining about being in ArtheDale, eh? What if your in Theren like I am? Even more opportunities for me to get killed on the way to the show. Can I request to have it broadcast, or at least available on pay-per-gweth?

Zaulwen, returning to the forge with an another over-cooked tart <grin>

Heyo Rascalt, Melindrha, Zaulwen and others!

I really don't know that a rescue party for me is necessary. I'd love to see Dewsong play at the Half Pint in a few days (ooc: Sat night, 11pm eastern); hopefully some enterprising adventurers will help make that possible, but I'll worry about that when the time comes.

The other thing about getting "rescued" is I'd feel a little guilty. Unlike our friends in Stone Clan, I have free access to the Arthe Hollow Inn. Arthe Dale does not in any way represent a threat to Sorrow and his forces. As such, Sorrow and his generals have wisely, from their point of view, blocaded but not invaded our Village, saving his troops for battling Crossing and Stone Clan. I have dutifully kept watch at the gate, and am pleased to report that contrary to rumour, no enemy troops have yet entered our fair lands.

It could still happen at any time, and if it should happen, I will stand battle with Grandma Tanglefoot's tea and one of Zaulwen's forged tarts. The residents of Arthe Dale will not rest easy though until Sorrow and his minions are forced back. The solution, then, if you are of mind to fight, would be to continue assisting our fellow heroes in Crossing and Stone Clan.

My best wishes for your safety, and as always, at your service,

Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

Message   Dwarven Stomp/Short Brigade (251)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Dec 16, 2000 at 12:45

Greetings fellow Olvi,

  A courier just delivered to me a scroll from the Dwarf Bubbinster of Stone Clan. It reads as follows:

"Please let the Olvi know the Dwarves of Stone Clan are planning the Great Death Stomp six days hence (ooc: Sunday 12/16/00, 7pm eastern). We will stomping the Stomp of the Short Brigade from Arthe Dale to Stone Clan, clearing the Northern Trade Route of enemies as we march. We would like to invite any and all Olvi Warriors and Adventurers to join us for this grand event. The Dwarves enjoy the good relations between our proud races, and would like as many of you as possible to join. Stone Clan also has a special need for Healers and Clerics, and would welcome any help the Halflings could provide in this regard as well.

Signed by my hand 363 years, 254 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer,

Bubbinster Bladebender"

  It should go without saying any benefit we as Olvi and residents of Arthe Dale could provide for our friends and neighbors to the north is a worth endeavor in my book. I personally will not join the march as my duties keep me here in Arthe Dale. I would be proud of any Halflings who would attend.

  At your service,

  Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

Cleaned-up repost ::grumbles::

[Lairocott Brach, Frotoft] On either side of the tunnel to your north are two especially bright lanterns. The tunnel, regular and smooth, bears all of the hallmarks of traditional dwarven mining. You also see a silver chain, a broken silver chain, some green moss, some green moss, a cutlass, a slender tip bolt, a slender tip bolt, a silver chain, a broken silver chain, a slender tip bolt, a barbed arrow, a barbed arrow, a barbed arrow, some eghmok moss, some eghmok moss, some georin salve and a shadowling. Also in the room: Worrclan, Militia Envoy Grimslayer, Kalkomar, Towena Obvious exits: north, southeast, southwest.

Kalkomar says, "little 'death within the stew'" You say, "i think i like yer mum" You grin at Kalkomar. Kalkomar says, "or, at least, dey wish dey was dead" You say, "sounds like i cooked" You babble something incoherent at Kalkomar. You ponder. You say, "if tha's all it would take for us to win" You exclaim, "someone fetch me a big pot!" You say, "and mutton haunches"

You say, "and bread crusts" Kalkomar says, "let's say there'd be lotsa moanin, gruntin and squattin...and it ain't a good thing" You say, "and icky smelly cheese" You say, "i'll cook them dinner" Kalkomar chuckles. You nod to Kalkomar. (Kalkomar forages for some really foul headcheese) You say, "they took away my cookpot cause of an incident very similar to wha you were talkin about" Kalkomar says, "just depends who's eatin outta the pot" (Melindrha reaches into her bag and pulls out a huge pot and drops it on the ground)

You grin at Kalkomar. You say, "this hasn't been washed since then" You say, "and that was, well, a while ago" (Kalkomar peers into the pot) Kalkomar winces. Kalkomar shudders. Towena gulps. You ask, "Towena, have any bread crumbs?" Kalkomar says, "molten lead couldn't get that out" You beam at Kalkomar!

You say, "you get it" You lean on Worrclan. Worrclan blinks. Grimslayer chuckles. You ask, "Grims, have mutton haunches to toss in?" You ask, "Worr, have any worms or spider eyes?" (Melindrha taps her cookin pot) Worrclan ponders. Towena shivers. You say, "makin stew for Sorrow's troops"

You say, "only the finest ingredients" You bat your eyelashes. (Worrclan roots around till he finds a handfull of night crawlers.) You beam at Worrclan! You say, "right in there" Kalkomar says, "what ya need is a slaugh carcass melindrha" You look at Kalkomar and drool. (Worrclan gives Melindrha a wringling mass of black.) Kalkomar says, "cook that down into a nice stock" (Melindrha sends one of the kids who're watchin to drag in the one from the Brogher)

(Melindrha takes the worms, sniffs once, and drops them into the pot You smile at the youngling and directs him and his buddies to throw the oozing thing in You say, "murky water from the trough in the piero" Kalkomar says, "make sure it's chest is exploded..the maggots are good fer seasonin" You nod to Kalkomar. (Melindrha riffles through the various packs to find some spare "rations") Kalkomar says, "and mash it good, the blood congeals wonderfully and makes a nice thick stock" You ask, "have any bullion on you?" Kalkomar says, "oh, here's somethin to toss in" Kalkomar says, "even better"

You ask, "the kind out of the jar with the skull on it?" Kalkomar grins. Worrclan asks, "how about some rock dust?" You say, "nah, may help them digest it" (Kalkomar reaches into his pocket and get a lint-covered piece of yak yerky) You grin at Kalkomar. (Kalkomar puts his lint-covered jerky in the pot) (Melindrha pulls out her rusty knife and slices the jerky up) Worrclan ponders. Worrclan rummages through a sturdy weapon harness with a frantic look of loss.

You ponder. (Melindrha sends the kid back to the piero for the old bandages) You ask, "hey, anyone save a cyanide dart?" Kalkomar rubs his hands together. You lean on Worrclan. Worrclan says, "no dart" You ponder. You pick up some green moss. Worrclan gets a blue-grey plume feather from inside his black backpack. (Melindrha tosses the moss in)

Worrclan asks, "how about a branding feather?" You give Worrclan a smooch. Mmmmmwa! Worrclan falls over. Worrclan babbles incoherently. Worrclan leaps to his feet! You grin at Worrclan. Kalkomar stretches. (Melindrha picks up a bolt to stir with, and blinks when it starts to dissolve) You bounce up and down like a little kid. Worrclan grins.

You say, "this stew will help" (Kalkomar sniffs the stew) Kalkomar wobbles, looking a bit faint. Kalkomar wobbles, looking a bit faint. Kalkomar falls over. Kalkomar coughs. Kalkomar coughs. You say, "careful, don't get too close" You touch Kalkomar. You feel the transfer beginning as a cold stillness settles in the center of your being and you steel yourself for the impending explosion of pain.

Worrclan jumps back from you! Kalkomar pants. Kalkomar sits up. Kalkomar says, "i'm ok..." You sense Kalkomar's vitality is normal now. You say, "it's just Meli's stew" Kalkomar shakes his head. You sniffle at Worrclan. Kalkomar says, "whew...close call" Worrclan points at a barbed arrow on the floor.

Worrclan says, "barbed arrow.." Worrclan says, "add it" Worrclan nods. (Melindrha hands over bandanas for the boys to wear while they carry it out) Towena asks, "what ARE ye cookin up?" Towena peers quizzically at Worrclan. Towena peers quizzically at you. Kalkomar says, "it's even a stong enough poison fer dwarves" (Melindrha grabs the arrow and tosses it in as a garnish) Towena gulps.

Towena glances at Kalkomar. Worrclan says, "something that will cut up an elpalzi's gut when he ets it" (Melindrha sends the youngns off to deliver the stew) Kalkomar says, "a little present for sorrow's troops" Worrclan grins at you. You nod to Worrclan. You beam! You grin at Kalkomar. (Towena searches for youngns) You say, "they'll come back"

You say, "there's a lil bolt-hole even i can't fit through that they can" Towena grins at you. You grin at Towena. Kalkomar says, "hehe, bubb would've gotten a kick outta this" You nod to Kalkomar. Kalkomar says, "melindrha's war stew" You preen! Towena grins at you. Towena says, "the question bein." You say, "i's the bestest cook"

You ask, "bein?" Towena says, "ye one o those..."make it up as ye go along" types" Kalkomar says, "warning: not for human, elven, halfling, dwarven, rakash, or toggie consumption" Towena says, "who kin never reproduce a brew...." You say, "well, you do have to work outside the recipe sometimes" Towena says, "or..." You nod to Kalkomar. Grimslayer says, "ah togs can eat it" Grimslayer smiles. Towena says, "do ye write it down for reproducibility" You shake your head at Grimslayer. Towena winks at you. You say, "i have it all memorized"

Greetings, Thain! Since you were the most willing, I'm not going to lie--er, gloss over the truth! Progress on the painting, "The Kilted Four" is startlingly under way, thanks to Zelaide! ::huzzah:: In case you've forgotten, it's going to be a painting of the four race Leaders I pictured in my mind - O happy inspiration! - after I had downed about...oh...a couple ales...who's counting anyway...Eh...

If you ever happen down to Shard, please stop in the Gorbesh Fort so I can give you the kilt, or find Zelaide!

Hiya Lith!

I know the list of names you'd like to see kilted, I think I'm your easiest sell! Yellow and green works for me, but whatever, I'm flexible. Just, umm, long ::grin::

Now that the way south is open from Crossing, I can be down Shard way in no time. Maybe you or another gnome can even give me a tour of the Fort.

--Mykk

ps. If you're getting a painting commissioned, perhaps you could tie the event in with some kind of charity? Just a thought.

Hey Mykk!

I'm so glad you're willing! And guess what, I LOVE your idea. I think it's great, and I will put my head together with all the other Gnomes and see what they think.

About the kilt - you're short, you get a short kilt. Got to keep the ladies happy, of course!

Sorry!

::decides she'd better get a sack of tarts as a peace offering::

<<Sorry! ::decides she'd better get a sack of tarts as a peace offering::>>

I don't knooooowww... You don't SOUND too sorry... but I'll take your tarts, and for all potential kilt-wearers and party-goers I'd recommend copious quantities of fine ale, wines and spirits!

<<About the kilt - you're short, you get a short kilt.>>

By that logic, I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I expect you'll be wearing a likewise-sized skirt...

<<Got to keep the ladies happy, of course!>>

Do the gnomes have traditions of kilt-wearing different than Olvi??? Have some sensibilities, lady, and be thinking knees and longer!

::wink::

All I can say is, you're so funny, Mykk! ::grumble:: Now I have to buy let's see...TWO sackfuls of ale and a sackful of tarts! Do you even realize how much money this will cost me? What do I look like, a Trader? ::cough:: ::hides her caravan and yaks::

The least you can do is wear a semi-short kilt. I'm not talking mini-kilt, I'm talking...a little above the knees. Lemme at least see your kneecaps! And no, my skirt goes down to my ankles :P

Don't forget, you're the model, not me!

*Lith* - Stressed out Gnomish Fashion Consultant who just wants to see some kneecaps!

P.S. Do me a favor - talk Hegemonic into wearing his orange and taupe kilt. It goes well with his eyes.

Bet you didn't think I'd have to count to 10 before posting on a party, eh?

Basically, I'd love to get working on a party again, though preferably after the war and travel resumes to normal. But I'm throwing a bit of a Olvi-fit (maybe Mykk should have red hair and not black, heh) over what I see as a vicious slander against our little folder by the GM in charge of Races.

<<Ok... I've been following this, and the thread in the Halfling folder. And I've been trying to come up with an appropriate way to phrase things. Firstly. The attitudes and behaviors expressed in the Halfling folder have been nothing short of venemous, bitter, and completely and utterly demeaning. (DR-CADAYA, The Eleven, 12/21/00, Message#420) >>

Folks, I keep reading and rereading our folder, and I'm still perplexed. Even when I focus on posts #194-#216, the thread of early November that Cadaya appears to be referring to, I still don't get it. I thought the thread, which lasted one week, ran it's course in a typical Olvi fashion, we aired our grief, joked around, ended the thread and moved on. Will someone please point out to me "venemous, bitter, and completely and utterly demeaning?" You read the boards, you see the gm/simu bashing that goes on in say the Talk to Simutronics folder, you don't see gm's coming in and slamming them down. They handle it adminstratively through removal of posts or emailing the offending players directly.

In regards to the party I was organizing a while ago, it started off Phangor, Gabela, Fizzia, and myself putting it together with zero GM help. But then a GM caught wind of our plans, and volunteered to see if there was anything he/she could do to help out, so long as there wasn't a lot of GM work involved. Excited, we spent hours coming up with a tent, including descriptions, objects, atmospheres, food, drink, and a couple memorial prizes (like ribbons or something) for our games. Pretty basic stuff. But then the GM had to back out citing "GM favoritism," and it pretty much knocked the wind out of our sails. I mean, the party was for all of Elanthia, just with an Olvi angle, you know?

Now I see other racial players and player-groups (not even "official" player organizations) getting serious in-game attention, pre-titles, heck, even a bunch of altered armbands for one particular individual to give to his friends. Nobody says that's gm-favoritism, and why should they? It's for the benefit of increasing the depth and enjoyment that is Elanthia. But then why was it favoritism to help the Halfling community with a party in Arthe Dale for all players?

I saw Eriyck (sp?) offering to help with neighborhood parties I think in the Neighborhoods/Estate Holders folders, and of course if we dropped them an email maybe our champions could help too. I guess the first question you should ask yourself Temi is are we going to do the party with only 100% player help, or try to involve GM help. Speaking from experience, you don't want to start one way and end up another.

Last thing: Meli, count to 10, Rascalt, bite your tongue... the one thing we DON'T want to do is start a gm/champion bashing thread that only reduces our folder to the very thing Cadaya accused us of. If you have an opinion, please try to keep it constructive.

Sorry for yet another long post,

--player of Mykk

Heyo, Teminesca!

Always good to hear from you! With your creativity, energy, and great planning skills... well, I'd love to see you head a party committee on this one! I'll help! And I'll even recruit a bunch of "volunteers"! And I can help with public relations in getting the word out.

Without resorting to tracking down our notes, Mayor Phangor, Gabela, Fizzia and I enjoyed a few evenings of brain-storming, hangover-inducing get togethers for an idea. If our ideas serve as a springboard for anyone's creativity, then go for it. I won't be offended if you use our ideas or not.

My favorite part was the theme. For this, I will quote from the book, The Holidays of Elanthia by Barnacus Vinayan:

"During Blufedor, around the 32nd day of the month of Skullcleaver, the holiest day of Glythtide is celebrated. This is the time of the harvest of grapes and apples, key components in the making of wine and hard cider. The mead made from the first honey gathered early in the previous year is also ready for drinking. Many jokes and tales are made about how the name Skullcleaver is appropriate to the after effects of the parties of this holiday.

Great feasts are held in halfling communities in His honor. This day is holy to Saemaus as well and all gatherings on this day must begin with toasts to Him. He is said to walk through all parties on this day and encourage mirth and happiness at the festivities.

It is common for children to be indulged in honor of Saemaus, especially in halfling communities, and allowed to play all manner of practical jokes and pranks so long as they are designed to bring humor into the day. Adults often bribe pranksters to leave them alone by gifting them with sweets or some special treat."

The other idea I'll share now would be the location. With a little help and a few well-placed (well-meaning) bribes, we thought maybe we could get a party tent. Otherwise, as most Olvi should know, the Tanglefoots will rent out their Bed & Breakfast in their home for the occasion. If it was a tent, the kicker would be that although the tent itself would be large enough to accomodate the tallest GorTog, the doorway itself would be shorter, as kind of a wink-wink nod to ourselves. Even considered two doorways, one tall one short, each with a (hopefully) amusing sign.

Let's get together sometime, Temi?

--Mykk

(ooc: while we exchanged the details of our ideas via email, it's a lot more fun meeting and brain-storming in-game! also, we thought we could make the official/major party a "once every four elanthian years," figuring that organizing it once a year real-time would be enough! hmm, also, it's currently fall in elanthia, which wouldn't give us much time, and then there's that war thing...)

Meli,

I'll party with Dwarves anytime, especially my friends up in Stone Clan! Their house, our house, any ol' Inn or Tavern, night, day, all week--it matters not. They know how to party, and we sure know how to appreciate a good party!

I hope the war outside their door goes well. The few times I've been in Stone Clan, morale was great. Was awesome seeing Battle Empath Meli in action! And I'm sure the Dwarves appreciated what Olvi help we could do, even if it wasn't a whole lot (Meli aside).

Ohh.. Mykk.. as for the GM help <grins> I'm planning on doing it as a mentor sponsored event, so that wouldn't be hard at all. Jes' gotta survive all their forms. I don't know that I could do the tent... but the food and prizes would be fairly easy to accomplish.. news too. The date... I'm jes' getting the plans together now, because I have time. The actual date of the event wouldn't be for a signficant while yet. So we can avoid the war. I could even plan it so it falls right on Blufandu. A party like this can only help the public opinion of olvis. It will expose people to olvi culture and olvi people and such.. not to mention, it will be a lot of fun! I'll print out all your messages on the topic and try to search ye out in Elanthia!

Sounds good, Temi! Mykk's pretty easy to find in-game, he's around Crossing but getting ready to take a short trip down to Shard. Not sure if you still have my AIM; I have yours, but I might have to IM a couple strangers before I remembered exactly which one on my Olvi list it is! Rascalt has mine.

Glad to hear you have some time on your hands <g>,

I think the venoumus post was the *one* post I made in the main folder when I said I was fed up and made a threat to post every day until I got some sort of response. I got my response, not the one I wanted, but it showed me where their concern was, so I'm done with the subject and continuing on with my life.

That explains some of it.

No word on Fial.

Message   Help for Theren (269)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Jan 2, 2001 at 13:06

Greetings,

I was sent word of a group of people up in Theren looking to organize more resistance to the armies threatening our lands.

<<Either way, we'll need posistions and people. We'll need a meeting with the Commanders, The Zoluren War Councils, The Theren War Council, a Representative from Dirge, Arthe Dale, Leth, Haven, Ratha, and whomever else we can get in a relatively short period of time. People that command forces. Because this will be a LONG war and we'll need to plan some way to support ourselves through it and defend accordingly. --Arathelle>>

Any halfling who wishes to represent Arthe Dale is welcome. My only advice would be to remember the Olvi have traditionally leaned towards neutrality, and Arthe Dale is surviving this war by keeping a low profile and not doing anything to overtly bug the bad guys.

--Mykk Dalys, Thain of Arthe Dale

(ooc: If interested, I would look for Arathelle in-game or send an email to BROOKE@PLAY.NET)

Message   Regarding latest census info <g> (270)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Jan 4, 2001 at 17:52

Hello,

A really nice Elanthian census was just posted (thanks Solomon), I thought I'd profer my thoughts <g>. Mind you, I was not ingame at the time, so I'm only guessing...

With 955 people in the game right now-

Paladin Halflings 1 -- Go Eadain

Barbarian Halflings 5 -- Go Zaulwen?

Ranger Halflings 6 -- Go Mossyoak, Fizzia?

Cleric Halflings 2 -- Go Gabela? Hmm, anyone know if Starsha, Cleric of Glythtide is Olvi? If not, she should be <g>.

Empath Halflings 3 -- Go Melindrha, Graye, Bernadette, Holsumm, Blossim? (Okay, that's 5, but it's my list, I can cheat)

Warrior Mages 0 -- honorable mention goes to Griffina, who obviously wasn't in-game ;-)

Thief Halflings 20 -- No comment <g>. This is sad folks (tongue-in-cheek). When I want to find new Halflings and am feeling lazy, I just have to go to the bank in Crossing then find the beggars. Geez, you'd think we got a great agility bonus or something. Oh, and no, I don't post the names of Thieves.

Moon Mages -- Glaerith obviously had the nerve to log off during the day.

Bard Halflings 3 -- Hmm, this one would take some good guessing, but rather than not enough, I know too many. Nice to see good Olvi representation in the Bards' Guild! I'm going to go with Kesstrell, Basgonif, and Teminesca.

Trader Halflings 1 -- Zincir. I would say Phangor, but he hasn't been able to be around as much lately, and who knows what guild he ever is anyway ::smirk::

Commoners -- 0 -- ???

Little weak on the Barbarians and Rangers. Off the top of my head though, that's my take on the census! lol Oh, had I been ingame, would've been interesting having a STAT FULL in front of me.

--aka Mykk

ps. For the full census, see Talk to Simutronics, Simutronics Q&A, #1797/#1798

Hey Rudee, good to hear from you. At that particular moment of the survey, there weren't any Olvi Warrior Mages in-game, but I'll keep an eye out for you!

Miss Puddin, if you happen to be reading this, you should look myself or Teminesca up. Temi is heading up the next big Olvi bash.........

Heh, okay, this is kind of funny, I was just running the idea past Temi, and she says you've already given her dessert ideas. Wow, you two are good ;-) I've also suggested to Temi you be responsible for the whole dessert table, and you...or your mum's business name <g>...get credit for it in the form of a sign or placard or something on the table. I'm sure you can figure something out!

The post is written so I guess I'll send it, but you Olvi are starting to scare me, lol.

Actually, Fizzia's in Arthe Dale. We're supposed to be headed out to Aesry Surleanis on a hunting trip/vacation together. Honestly, I keep getting caught up in mainland stuff ::duck:: For example, tomorrow (Saturday) night, I could see us hunting some leucros and vipers! Especially if we had a little empathic help ::grin::

I'm back from an extended illness, and while I was in that half awake state came up with some interesting things to do with halflings. They all are not possible, (Olvi are just too heavy to fly with out magical help...) but keep your eyes out in the next few months. I'm still recovering, so nothing this month, but now I am back with internet access. So bear with me as I get back up to speed. I haven't forgotten the most fun race in Elanthia.

A GM POSTED! A GM POSTED!!! Ummm, now what are we going to do? <flails> Ok Fial some ideas...

Verbs: wiggle <bottom, toes, fingers, nose> Rascalt wiggles his bottom at you. Rascalt wiggles his fingers around. Rascalt wiggles his toes. Rascalt wiggles his nose.

rub foot: You smooth out the hairs on your feet.

Need a merchant with ALL sorts of halfling sized armor, weapons, some halfling made clothes that only halflings can wear.

Lets see what else... We need more tarts... more booze... More halflings towns and more show of how we olvi have effected culture.

Did I mention more tarts? of course we need a meeting... Wednesday or Sunday nights are best <nods>

More tarts... Parties, more tarts, I like that flying thing, more tarts, and last but not least... more tarts

By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Jan 10, 2001 at 14:22

Ahhhhh! Shaunn was the first person to hit upon what I thought was a beautiful and EASY idea for a contest! I was going to wait until the warm welcomes for Fial died down, but Shaunn beat me to it!

Fial, you should have a contest to let the players of Olvi come up with some new smoke-lines! Since Hegemonic posted that you are in charge of the tobacco system, it seemed like a perfect match to me.

You've got some very creative, excited Olvi players on your hands, Fial, you should put us to work for you! Throw the contest, assign a minimum number of entries if that's an issue, pick some of the best new Olvi-smoking images, and code them into the hopper!

On a side note, what do all of you Olvi players think of the fact that some of our images include colors, for example (made up), "A paladin with a red shield on a white horse?" I'm not trying to down-tweak our smoking, but I'm curious how an Olvi barbarian would pull that trick off. Do any of you have an opinion for or against colors in our smoking images?

--aka Mykk

ps-- Thank you Meli and Rascalt, you both know why........

I know for fact its every halflings dream to be able to wiggle his toes, and wigglin ones bottom just seems like something an olvi would do, especially to taunt an opponet. Wigglin is just something we were all bore to do. Oh yeah we need more variety of tarts...

Since Fial is alive again <cheers> I'd like to revisit my old idea of putting a special tart shop in Arthe dale. Said shop would be like the Steel claw clan weapon shop. you would order the food type, topping and flavor. price would go up, you could even have a contest for the menu! Here is a sample menu

You turn to page one
  Tart
  Tartlet
  Pastry
  Cake
  Muffin Custom toppings on page two. Custom flavors on page three

<<<blinks> Your gonna spoil us ya know... now what about my wiggle verb? I know for fact its every halflings dream to be able to wiggle his toes, and wigglin ones bottom just seems like something an olvi would do, especially to taunt an opponet. Wigglin is just something we were all bore to do. Oh yeah we need more variety of tarts... >>

I'd like to be able to wiggle my toes or otherwise call attention to my feet. But.. wiggle my bottom? Eww. :bopbopbop:

Prefer to keep my rump under armor, but my toes are up front in combat ... teasing the enemy. Someone once suggested that we Olvi should be able to pick things up with our toes. I really like that idea. Like for bundling skins with blade in hand ... wonderful.

And my favorite smoke color is "carmine." It's all in the lips, ye know. I also LOVE the way we barbarians can snuff those cigars when we done. If ye haven't seen, I show ye sometime. Only cost ye a cigar ... Be nice if there were some Olvi unique ways to snuff, since we be the experts and all.

I think plenty varieties of tarts, just not enough tarts to satisfy a barbaric appettite, not that more flavors would hurt or nothin'.

Be nice to squeak like a mouse again. I have been Olvi lots longer than barb. I think it would be nice to be able to <roar olvi> so that I am not always a lion.

Same with shaking hands. I nae always want to show off my tremendous barbarian strength . . <cough> .. <begins to choke> .. <laugh> .. <tries to look serious again, failing miserably>. Now when I shake hands, I try to crush them. Fine for greeting other barbs, but not very Olvi-like if ya asks me.

::grins::

Sorry, Rascalt. I have two reasons I have been posting late. One, it is year end at work, with auditors and all that fun stuff. Second, if I post too early, I am afraid everyone will forget.

But.. since you ask...

The fourth Bardic Concert is scheduled for Saturday, January 27 at 11 pm EST at the Arthe Dale Inn. The fifth Bardic concert is scheduled for Saturday, February 10 at 11 pm EST, also at the Arthe Dale Inn (tentatively). As to the performing Bards, I have not yet received confirmation yet, so I will reserve that for now. I will say, both of them are wonderful Bards that I am sure many have heard good things of.

Hello Miss Puddin <g>,

I haven't talked with Temi in a while, but Blufeldu (sp) isn't for another couple months (rl) at least. You have plenty of time.

I've got a bunch of stuff for Teminesca too! And I must say, I see a lot of Olvi interest in our next big party. It's an exciting time to be Olvi!

I REALLY liked Rascalt's idea for a tart shop. Might never happen, but it's a great idea. And not just because a customizable tart shop would be neat, but I like HOW Rascalt offered his idea. Instead of just saying, "I want a tart shop!" he did the work and designed the shop. I talked with him, somewhere he has notes on the shop description and everything.

Because that to me folks, is how the Race Champion position should work. I love hearing of Champions doing wonderous things for their races, but I don't want any Champions to burn out, or neglect their other GM duties. What I like is the idea that if we put forth a well-thought out idea like Rascalt did, that the Champion might take our idea and get it in front of the right GMs. Our Champion behind the scenes, you know?

At your service,

Mykk Dalys, marathon concert attendee and proud owner of a new yellow and green plaid kilt

An instrument cloth, of course, or maybe a hand towel.

Hiya GRIFFIIIIIIIIIIIIINA,

Yes, I'm in a good mood today. No reason.

<<Hey Mykk did ya ever get that dern ankle dragging kilt hemmed up to a good Olvi height?>>

Actually, to Lith's and Zelaide's credit, the kilt fit very well and needed almost no adjustments whatsoever. I'm not sure what a good Olvi height is for a kilt, but I might've liked it a little lower... as it is, it rests just above the knees. Not sure where the painting is at, but got to meet and hang out with a couple of lovely Gnomish ladies, and so far have got to keep the kilt, so... ::chuckles:: I'm already ahead in the deal!

<<will you keep posting about the party and what those of us that haven't volunteered anything as of yet could do to help?>>

Heh, like I need an excuse to post. Do you know the best thing about this party from my point of view? I'm not running it! LOL That would be Teminesca, Glythtide save her.

Miss Puddin and family is doing the dessert table, I'd like to be responsible for the wines, I think Fizzia is helping out with the food. Any ideas for games/events we could play/do while at the party would be good. For those of you with a wicked side ::glances at Meli da Meanie::, since it's said the Olvi children like to play harmless pranks at this festival, maybe you could have fun coming up with some good pranks.

<<thanks bunchies, Griffina...aka Cookie Monster>>

Hmm. ::glances at Brian the Honest:: Two people on the boards both claiming to be Cookie Monster.... okay, quick, where's this from? "Oh! So you the person who told tree not to give cookies except to those who share. That STUPID thing to do!"

::babbles at Mykk:: Dear? My wicked side would get me kicked outta the party so fast *everyone else's* heads would spin. 'Course, that might be kinda amusin... ::snickers:: My wit appreciates pranks and jokes, but is more of a cutting, nasty type. I'd be stuck with flowers that shoot water if you tap em, whoopie cushions, and runes that do a "joy buzzer" kinda thing.

If the people in charge of food wanna contact me, I've found a few things I think are neat, including a pizza! Well, under another name, but still what else would a slice of cheesy tomato bread work out to? (You take a bite of the bread. Mmmmm... Tender and juicy, with just a hint of garlic.)

I am willin to be slave labor for the food people, though, if you need another strong back to tote stuff with.

P.S.- I want lollis!

On        Jan 19, 2001 at 22:42

It seems people want to start gathering together again.. Meli and Tappy know Mykk's and my feelings towards meetings I'm sure but I'll share with the rest of you anyway. We feel olvi should not have meetings, they are too formal and organized, and we don't have the attention span for them. So instead of meetings, how bout we just have social gatherings? We can come meet fellow Olvi, share stories, chat about what not, discuss anything on our minds, and maybe if we are lucky Naiph will show up.... In my next post will be the details for our first gathering... I'm hoping the time will be ok for everyone.

Howsabout foot hair messaging? People get to play with head hair, and as long as I'm gonna get made of fun of by big bald togs for it, I might as well be able to do something with it. Maybe let us muss it it up and get it tangled or something, oh, or it could be the latest fashion for female Olvi to braid it! And to play pranks on other Olvi, we can shave their feet... or or... hrm, yeah, I don't think ponytails are possible, but you never know. Maybe we could dye it different colors and stuff.

Aengen,

You're welcome ::smile::

Wonderful concert! I couldn't begin to tell you how much I like seeing the Arthe Hollow Inn come alive with bards and other party-goers every couple of weeks! Well, actually, given a couple of drinks I probably would...

All your songs were good, Aengen, but at the risk of agreeing with Meli, I would have to say my personal favorite was Ma's Advice too, but especially when your bardess in the song meets the bard at the end.

Message   Cigars anyone? (359)
By        VREELANDM@PLAY.NET
On        Feb 2, 2001 at 04:34

Hows bouts a cigar verb description specific for olvi. I loves ta smoke and make critters with da smoke. When I comes across a cigar I gets all crrrrrrazy inside and just need to hug it! I'd like to see unique "hug, rub, tap cigar," etc. descriptions just for us Olvi's. It's really late otherwise I'd come with some examples. (perhaps in another post)

I's wants to also be able to do neat things with cigars too instead of just smoking dem, such as twirling the cigar around in my fingers so deftly that I impress onlookers. I wanna also show people that I cans bites off the tip of the cigar and hit a fly from ten yards before I's smokes it.

Also, I would love to be able to make a cigar.

The tart shop sounds so fun. Can we buys tart pouches there too? I want one that has a sticky residue left on it from a recent food fight in the Arthe Dale bakery.

Where can I get a foot hair grooming kit? I having a hard time seeing me toe bells. They still jinglin' so I knows they still there.

Heya all, Just lookin fer thoughts. Are we not the citizens of tha world? If I 'member correctly we declined to have an official olvi home, and preferred to have a hovel setup in each city.

With regards to citizenship, will we receive perks of citizens in each area?

I for one don't think I can pick one place to call home whatcha all think?

Hiya Razputin,

I'll take a stab at answering your questions. The way citizenship is set up currently, it does actually makes sense that we can not be citizens of Arthe Dale. To compare it to real life, you can be from Texas, but (even as pro-statehood as they are...) they are still citizens of the United States--says so right on your passport. So Arthe Dale being in Zoluren makes us Zoluren citizens, or the halflings up in the Riverhaven Halfling Quarter would be citizens of Therengia. Coming from someone who's character would not wear an "of Zoluren" title, and wishes for an "of Arthe Dale" title I sympathize, but that's the current set up as stated by at least one GM. Citizenship is an IC program the GMs have developed that really shows a lot of promise.

However, OOC, many many players are hoping to show their affiliations for various cities, clans, villages, etc. So while maybe "of Arthe Dale" doesn't fit into citizenship currently, perhaps the GMs will come up with an "affiliation" program vs. a "citizenship" program.

I'm not a great historian on halflings (yet), but I think maybe you're remembering Olvi history a little skewed? Halflings definately settled in a couple places, not so much the "hovel in each city" theory. There are 2 good ingame books, not sure where they are, but they are also available on various websites (including mine when it officially opens in a couple more weeks). One is "An Arthe Dale Story", which I think is in Crossing, the other is more specific to the halflings of Riverhaven. Sorry I don't have the details off the top of my head.

Happy adventuring,

--aka Mykk

Oh, Im sure my memories are more than a bit skewed.

At this point I doubt I will take citizenship anywhere, as a ranger, it just doesn't fit. The Arthe Dale title would be great, but I totally understand that you are a citizen of the province.

Just kinda want to straighten out the facts about Olvi history. If ya happen to come up with the details, ya mind sharin em, I'd imagine this place is as good as any fer a good Olvi history lesson. Im on the islands, and don't get to libraries much, so anythin ya could toss out there fer reading would be great.

Thanks, Razputin

I think I may know what you are referring to Razputin. Olvi history mentions that halflings have traditionally been non-committal about declaring an allegiance in wars and disputes, and have prefered to be a part of both sides or none. That sounds like it could equate to olvi having a foot in everything and everywhere. ;-) I have also noticed how there are many halfling settlements throughout Elanthia, so that while Arthe Dale is the largest and most well known "home", we still have olvi living all over the continent and islands in places like Riverhaven's Halfling Quarter, Sicle Grove, Fayrin's Rest, and there is even (I believe) a wealthy olvi merchant family in Ratha.

Fizzia is a ranger too and I can never see her choosing a citizenship either. Hey, they don't call us "wanderers" and "wayfarers" for nothing, right? Fizzia is at home anywhere where there are sweet green forests and untamed wilderness, and she is always moving around. She does have a fondness for Arthe Dale though. Where else can you get free tarts and good olvi company in such concentration!

I do think that they could have done citizenship a little differently. I would have liked to have seen a choice of titles too, so that if you joined in Zoluren, you could still be "of Zoluren" or you could be "of Arthe Dale" or "of Kaerna" or "of Tiger Clan" instead. Maybe someday...

Um, what I believe Razputin is referring to is when Lavinal broke up the Empire, he asked the Olvi what territory they wanted. They replied that they didn't want a specific territory, but to be welcome everywhere. Bear in mind, however, that my knowledge of your eastern history is somewhat lacking...

Yup, there's definitely a prominent Olvi family in the islands. Wander through the pathie guild there, you'll see them mentioned. Here's their sash:

The sash is made of fine woolen fabric woven in bright green and purple with touches of cream and gold in the weave. A gilded pin decorated with the image of a globe spinning in the gaping maw of a rabbit, the crest of the Pantel family, fastens the garment in place.

I understand Mykk's point about where you're from. I even agree with it to a point. I just wish I could be from the Dale. Til that happens, I'll be from Elanthia, just cause that's me.

Olvi make their homes pretty much where they want, we are the most tolerant of the differences between the races. After all we know we are the best, in size, in our good nature, in our love of life. Most Olvi don't care what the other races think of them and the jokes about us are sure to be their jelousy of our lives.

Since Olvi are found just about everywhere, get along with just about every culture and race, citizenship is not very important to most Olvi, compared for example to S'kra or Humans. Olvi are chameleons of social interaction, fit in almost everywhere, as long as it doesn't cramp our freewheeling, good-natured lifestyle.

So as to citzenship to a region, an Olvi may or may not decide to take avantage of the perks of citzenship in aan area they spend the most time, and it is up to each individual Olvi if they are loyal to that province or just paying lip service to gain the benefits of that citzenship, or decide that citzenship is not in their best interest.

In other words, its up to you and your character if you declare citzenship to a province.

Good catch, Qreyq! And Razputin, maybe it was my "Arthe-centric" view of history that was a little skewed, eh? And thanks to Fial for chipping in, too!

And since my website is not where I want it to be yet, here's the couple links you asked for, Razputin:
http://hobgoblin.net/books/ArtheDaleTale.html
http://hobgoblin.net/books/HalflingsofRiverhaven.html

Message   Smoking Contests (375)
By        DR-FIAL@PLAY.NET
On        Feb 4, 2001 at 09:08

To enhance the Smoking and Tobacco system, and to allow for player input, I am holding two contests. One is for the creation of new tobacco and cigar flavors and the other is for new smoke shapes made by Halflings.

The flavors contest is open to all players, but the smoke shapes contest is only open to players with an active halfling character previous to this contest. Though non-halflings may enter their ideas, they will not be eligible for prizes in this category.

Both contests start on Sunday, February 4 and close at 12pm ET on Sunday, February 25. Winners will be announced and contacted by email by Sunday, March 4, and arrangements for delivery of prizes will be made soon after.

All entries of both contests, whether used or not, become property of Simutronics Corporation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Halfling Smoking Images contest:

When a halfling smokes tobacco, they can exhale a line of smoke, which forms into some sort of image. This contest is to make more images available for Halflings. Eventually, complex shapes will be learnable from smoking masters and teachable among halflings as a special ability.

Anyone can enter but only halflings can win a prize.

Shapes will be judged on creativity, in-character/gameness, and relativity to the halfling race. Why would a halfling blow that shape in the first place?

Entries can be no longer than 40 words or 230 characters, including spaces.

Some basic rules:
 Smoke shapes are basically colorless, so wild variations in color are not possible.
 Remember these are fleeting images, only last a few seconds, and cannot be works of
 fine art or be intricately detailed. Though some leeway will be given since Halflings are
 masters of the smoking arts.
 Images cannot be of player characters. NPCs can be in images though.
 Images do not have to be an image. Geometric shapes are valid.
 For really good descriptions some of these rules can be bent or broken.
 Enter as many different descriptions as you want.

Some examples:
 (Fial exhales a circle of smoke that settles on his head like a regal crown.)
 (Fial blows a line of smoke at Loki that rests on her chin resembling a shaggy dwarven
 beard.)

Ya know this smoking talk has got me thinking... Is there a reason we can't have race specific skills to get ranks in and have them be teachable to other races? Every race seems to have a speciality in some thing that could be a skill. Us halflings have smoking... I would love nothing more than to be able to learn smoking as a skill then snicker at them silly humans when they are smoking and say here let me TEACH you how to smoke, and begin actually teaching them the smoking skill, only way other races could learn is from listening to a halfling or someone who was taught by a halfling. However halflings could learn from smoking and other halflings. Would also be a great way to show to new players that halflings have this special skill... You could call it a umm.. <ponders> Survival skill.. and give halflings out of the generator half a rank in it <g> And maybe at really really high ranks, we'd be able to make more intricate images and force our smoke to do certain things, like blowing it into another room, smoking from hiding, or blowing it through a keyhole or something.

Rascalt, da smoking olvi who wants some ranks in it.

Well, maybe. Though, I doubt I can get a smoking skill added. But I was thinking the other races may be able to attempt some shapes, but nowhere near as good as an Olvi would be able to make it. Though, I am undecided on that. I'd prefer it to remain a Olvi only ability. Will you be able to choose which image you are making? Maybe...

Message   Fifth Bardic Concert (381)
By        DAERLYNN@PLAY.NET
On        Feb 6, 2001 at 20:42

Hello, everyone...

The fifth Bardic concert is scheduled for this Saturday evening, February 10, at 11 pm eastern at the Arthe Dale Inn, in the Common Room (not the Dance Hall as the Dance Hall is not PLAYACTable).

If you have been to any of the previous four, you know how much fun these can be, and how much talent we have in the realms. If you haven't.. come give it a try!! It is only once every two weeks, and each show has a different performer, so we run the gamut of styles.

This week, I am honored that Larisah will be performing. Not just a wonderful Bard, Larisah is one of the all time class acts of Elanthia.. so come support her and the artistic talents of the land!

If you want to take a peek at the four previous concerts, Mykk has put together a wonderful site that lists all of the concerts, guest lists and a fantastic log of each one.. check it out!! www.arthedale.com

Thank you!!

Daerlynn

PS... and thank you for all of the wonderful Olvi support...

Was tryin to help someone customize his new knoll today, and ran into a snag.

Lower class knolls: where's the place for them? Not in the red door with middle an upper class landscaping. Any help? It is possible, there are a couple down the row, but...

By the way, welcome to the neighborhood, Tempto and Cerinne!

Lookie lookie!

[Eyes of the Thirteen, Glythtide's Shrine] The arch leading to the hallway is flanked by two large murals depicting key moments in divine history. They are bathed in a warm amber glow coming from the direction of the platform. The wash of golden light makes the room seem as if one were viewing it through a mug of pale beer. Obvious exits: none.

>l mur

A tribute to Saemaus, patron of love, happiness, and joyous festivities, is painted to the left of the arch. He is depicted in various tableaus. In one, he stands beside a pregnant woman, hand on her belly, blessing her child. In another corner, he taps the shoulders of a young man and woman, beckoning them to turn and face one another. Centered in the mural, Saemaus stands behind a table filled with fresh fruits, grains, eggs, and butter. He holds aloft his most famous creation -- the first tart.

>l second mur

A tribute to Be'ort, patron of bitter partings, love lost, and insanity, is painted to the right of the arch. He is depicted in various tableaus. In one, he drops something into the cup of a young bride celebrating at her wedding reception. In another corner, he taps the shoulder of a wild-eyed beggar, who seems to be spinning to see what isn't there. Centered in the mural, Be'ort stands laughing above a battlefield strewn with Elves and Humans.

>go plat

[Eyes of the Thirteen, Eye of Glythtide] A huge ale-brown crystal dome bows out into thin air, providing an amber-tinted view of the chamber below. Golden light washes over an altar crafted from thick, twisted grapevines sitting at the end of the platform. A three-part statue rises seamlessly from the top of the altar. Obvious exits: up.

>l stat

Three very thick grapevines are braided together to form the statue. The left branch shows a very merry, tipsy Saemaus wearing an orange blossom garland. The right branch shows a wild-eyed, frantic Be'ort wearing a garland of wilted phofe flowers. The center trunk shows a smiling Glythtide wearing a pair of ram's horns on his head. He smiles and holds aloft a tankard, seemingly in toast to those who would visit his altar. There appears to be something written on it.

>read stat

A three-part statue reads: "Live while you live."

>l alt

The altar looks a bit dusty.

The vines are woven tightly together. There is no sign of break or cut, almost as if they had grown this way.

I love it! I was wandering around, looking for it after havin seen it mentioned. I figured that it would be most appreciated here.

Ok, walked it out to make sure I got the exact measurements and such. So, from Crossing's bank (since I'm pretty sure we can all get there)...

 southwest
 go gate
 north
 climb stairs
 up twice
 go door
 go widdershins twice
 climb stairs
 go clockwise 7 times (or widdershins 10 times)
 go arch
 go platform.

Ta da! The room where you go arch looks like this:
 [Eyes of the Thirteen, Hallway]
 The cool white walls of the hallway are broken by two pillars of ivory -- a pair of carved mammoth tusks forming an archway to a shrine bathed in amber light.
 Obvious paths: clockwise, widdershins.

Now, I know not everyone's all that interested in the Gods an stuff, but I strongly reccomend poking around in the new Temple. It's so cool, on the second level the Guilds are all represented, third floor is for each main God/dess. The tunnels below just rock. There are good maps at Micwolf's (www.arcanewolf.com) site for the Temple, and the Crossroads (dr.xrgaming.net) site has picked up Sablina's for the outside.

By        DAERLYNN@PLAY.NET
On        Feb 18, 2001 at 08:38

Since you guys support these so wonderfully.. (Thank you thank you thank you!!!)

Announcing the sixth (!!) in our series of Arthe Dale concerts!!

As you may or may not know, every two weeks a concert is held in the Arthe Dale Inn, Saturdays at 11pm eastern. A featured performer will sing, tell stories, or somehow put on a performance for us all each concert. There is food and drink available, a dance floor and swimming hole nearby for after the concert, and generally a wonderful time enjoying both our fellow adventurers and the wonderful talent of the realms. We have had some absolutely amazing performances by some incredible performers (Dreamheart, Dewsong, Larisah, Aengen and Larisah) To revisit their performances, go to www.arthedale.com (thanks Mykk!)

The next concert is this coming Saturday, February 24 at 11pm eastern at Arthe Dale. I would like to encourage all to come as the performer is someone who performs less than he should, and I personally am honored that he has agreed to perform for us. If you have never heard Ailill perform, please come, you will be in for a extraordinary treat.

So this coming Saturday, Feb 24 at 11 pm eastern..

Ailill !!!!

And future concerts will see our first non-bard, Lathaliu ,and the bards Kortny (THE storyteller extraordinaire), Tahatia, and finally... some younger bards such as Espritia and Xaphira.. (when they tell me they are ready.. encourage them everyone!)

So please.. support the talents of the realms.. and just as a break from your routine.. join us!!

Thanks!

Greetings Olvi. The dwarves of stone clan are sponsoring a "small picnic" to celebrate all things and people small. I'm giving plenty of notice cause I know some of you need it, it is penciled in for the 25th, details to be announced as we are in the planning stages and the dwarves have a ton on their plate right now.

P.S. Hey Fial, if I were to say all things are "of halfling or olvi" Would I say we it was of all things Olvi, Olvic, or Olvish?

Thanks Hege, I'm on it. I've got a couple places in mind. I'd suggest the Village Green, but it's out in the knolls, little harder for folks to find. I think our best bet might be renting out Tanglefoot's for the party. Picnic-goers can spread out on the front lawn, and there are many areas for people to be able to spread out and talk, in and about the house. Directions would be easy--"enter Arthe Dale, go all the way north, go through the gate". The contests sound good. And yes, even Olvi MIGHT want to consider wearing boots (steel-toed), as dreadful as that sounds, but the consequences of a couple dozen drunken stomping dwarves... ::shudders at the bruises on his feet after the road trip to Stone Clan::

Oh, and if anyone is confused about this thread, it's really two threads--Hegemonic and the Dwarves are setting up a keg-a-thon, err, picnic, for the races with low centers of gravity... and Teminesca is organizing a Blufedor Celebration, Glythtide's holiest day, which takes place sometime in the fall ("around the 32nd day of the month of Skullcleaver").

I hope to have the results before the end of this week, and will post them here and the GM announcements in the Talk to Simu category.

The level of skill (I dunno what would be involved) would affect the outcome.

For instance...

a boring ... blocil berry tart an ordinary... a delicious... a scrumptious... a divine...

>look boring tart

This tart looks like something slapped together by a bored halfling.

>look ordinary tart

This tart looks like something poorly imitated out of a cookbook.

>look delicious tart

This tart looks like something that would be tasty.

>look scrumptious tart

This tart looks like something <creator's> mom would be proud of.

>look divine tart

This tart looks like it was created from a recipe held sacred in the <last name> line of Halflings going back to the beginning of time. It's form is created with incredible skill...

>eat ordinary tart

The tart tastes bitter ... <blah...blah>

>look

[Arthe Dale, Crossroads]
... You see a large communial oven.
...

...making some frosting... You get your mortar. You get your box of sugar. You pour some sugar into the mortar. You get your pestle. You crush the sugar into a fine powder. You get some musk hog lard. You mix the lard with the sugar.

...making the dough... You put your mortar in your backpack. You get your mixing bowl. You get some boobrie eggs and crack them in your mixing bowl. You get some flour and put it in the bowl. You put a pinch a salt in the mixing bowl. You pour some sugar into the mixing bowl. You mix the bowl. You pour some sugar into the bowl. You mix the bowl. You pour some sugar into the bowl. You mix the bowl.
...shaping the dough...
...ok...you put your special filling recipe inside...
...fold the dough...
...putting it in the oven...
...putting the frosting on top...

...CAN YOU IMAGINE...

Well, I've got the Picnic's date tentatively set for April 22nd. This is a Sunday, and while it is a signficant ways away... trust me, we'll need the time to prepare. I'm thinking on probably having it about 4 pm est.... and then having it last a few hours.. So, we'll probably need one contest.. and one game.. So, start suggesting! For your benefit, here's the food items I've already been given: an overstuffed tuna and creme cheese pastry shaped like a fat piggy(or skinny cow)" a luscious strawberry and whipped cream mini tart dripping with bright red syrup" light and flaky seven layer vanilla and strawberry wafer cookies drizzled in white chocolate" a huge glazed doughnut overstuffed with fruit preserves

Remidner that it is March 25th, in Arthe Dale, Not quite sure yet where in Arthe.

Other then having us all do a nice dwarven stomp, and get drunk and all that foolishness the following three contests will be held.

Dwarves: Original Stomp - With the use of the ACT verb dwarves will try to show an orignal stomp. No criteria other then you only get to use one ACT verb and that you don't actually cause any harm to any of the other partyers (Damage to property is acceptable). That and no magical effects like rolling thunder or anything like that.

Olvi: Original Smoke Forms - Olvi with the use of one ACT verb create an impressive form out of smoke. No Magic effects stand for this as well.

Gnomes: Original Invention - Gnomes will be given Three ACTs and a Verbally given discription of their invention. They say what it is, and then they Get to have it do its thing in three ACTs they have it do it. Inventions do not have to work properly and I see alot of potential for slapstick and humor here. It is however themes, so folks don't show up with tanks or ballistas. The Theme is Domestic Neccessities. Things to clean dishes, sweep floors, paint houses, etc.

Very Nice Prizes will be awarded to the winners after the picnic.

Hope this ends up being a blast!

Thieves 23

 Olvi are cool and thieves rule...

 I just wish I did not forget to submit my smoke entry...

 Basic idea was first exhale was of a bardess playing a insturment.
 Second exhale to complete it formed small music notes that danced off across the wind.

 Oh well probably would have lost anyway... Makes myself a note not to let ideas float off again... I was to occupied focusing on 2 Quest and my new 70th titles anyway.

*bounces* Yup, I'm one of the pathies.

Had a little moment of triumph tonight, too. =)

The Annael Ebeshalek says, "Congratulations, Razzleberrie! You did it! You're ready to train for your next rank!"

The Guild Leader continues, "You have proven your worthiness as an empath! As such, I bestow you with ultimate control over your training. We still demand minimum requirements which you must abide, of course, but now your destiny is truly within your hands."

Razzleberrie, bouncing around and playing with her new Empath title.

Congrats to fellow Olvi Mossyoak for his marriage to the beautiful Elothean Namastae. Those two have been together for a long time now, I think.

If anyone sees Mossyoak, tell him I feel bad I missed the wedding. I was just going through NEWS NEXT and found out the wedding was open invitation. You could've dropped a note in here Mossyoak! ::bop::

Message   Small Picnic and Original Smoke Forms Contest (419)
By        CLENCHG@PLAY.NET (marshalhege@hotmail.com)
On        Mar 22, 2001 at 18:29

Okay, There is going to be a small picnic of Gnomes, Olvi, and Dwarves in Arthe Dale this sunday at 8 EST. It will be on that mansion at the north end of the Dale, so just go in the gate and all the way north. Someone will be there to greet you, (probably Mykk).

There will be a contest of original smoke forms. The rules are simply that it only involves smoke and no magical effects. Each Olvi will be given one "ACT" verb to do it.

The winner will get an altered Tobacco case. It most likely will not be ready by the time of the picnic however just to let you know. Hope to see you all there.

Any questions just ask me here.

Message   Short-Races Party Aftermath (420)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Mar 26, 2001 at 19:38

Greetings all,

I'm going to put a couple posts up from the "Short-Races Party" in Arthe Dale. First, the guests. I left off the taller-raced adventurers who came, not to be mean, they were great too the few that came, but this is just for us shorter people. Oh, and if I've forgotten anybody, sorry, I do the best I can. I'm pretty confident I got them all though, but anyone can email me with corrections if they'd like <g>.

Olvi (9): Ascot Ryuzzaki, Fizzia Fuzzlewump, Gariz Furfeet, Ieon Malkivian, Melindrha Quinnell, Mossyoak Treehunter, Mykk Dalys, Shaunn Vasparion, Taffei Snarf'ntart

Gnomes (12): Belthasar Torchold'er, Boriken Caribe, Chantia SiTaros, Elsbette Kizardon, Flubbinster Spadebender, Grask Over'Hill, Halfstaff Little-Warrior, Kharlyn Moggler, Lithiriope Wynnslet, Narnaga Shahed, Opalmae Duckfeather, Teensie MiniMurmur

Dwarves (34): Adrinalakewader Crabeater, Aehral Itsena, Aeslyba Garske, Aroul Garman-Hai'din, Bubbinster Bladebender, Cloudcrest Skywin, Desii Anowor, Eodred Ammon'Tier, Eupholus Bennetti, Farfen Solidair, Freyah Etherium, Goou Laughter, Grimslayer McDunic, Hegemonic blessedbe, Jadens Bentbelly, Jordan Ironaxe, Lugnerin Unehrlich, Mahkrin Trill'karin, Malkavik Grunding, Naedira Rygeden, Nalak Smithhammer, Pagius Burwick, Perre Thorfowle, Prometheous War-Hammer, Psylok Kirm-Sathra, Ranelore Fordswim, Redarch VonBremen, Shimmermist Silentdusk, Spartope Ryaspa, Syrath Bahlahnck, Towena Stonecarver, Veritey desAuriaux, Voracious Chahnameed, Walteral Wolfastein

Last people to leave the party:
 Mykk (Olvi)
 Spartope (Dwarf)
 Elsbette (Gnome)
 Grask (Gnome)
 Lithiriope (Gnome)
 Kharlyn (Gnome)

Attendance:
 (Based on 1200 people in game, 1% Gnome, 3% Olvi, 4% Dwarven)
 Gnomes: 100%
 Olvi: 25%
 Dwarves: 70%

As expected, Gnomes and Olvi put together couldn't outnumber the Dwarves in attendance, but you know, they cheat, it's their meeting night and all! But then again, it was Hegemonic and the Dwarves who came up with the idea for the party and really got it going, so I guess they get to pick the time ::wink::

What really amazes me was the Gnomes who showed up. They're lucky to have 10 ingame at a time--someone want to tell me how they got 12 at one party in Arthe Dale?????? Yeah, low count on the Olvi, but as I like to say, Olvi are too free-spirited to keep track of things like dates, schedules, being someplace when their feet take them someplace else... Excuses you say? LOL whatever, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I think it's safe to say, an awesome time was had by all!!! Thanks Hegemonic and the Dwarves for getting it going! Thanks to Hegemonic for getting the prizes for the contest. I'll post the entries in my next post. Now Hege, when are you going to get Cleanbeard going???

Message   Contest entries from the party (421)
By        NORTHWIND@PLAY.NET (Mykk)
On        Mar 26, 2001 at 20:41

Here are the entries for the contests held at the Short-Races Party in Arthe Dale. As with all DR contests I've seen, every entry was worthy of a win. And I apologize in advance for the length of the post, I just couldn't see breaking it up into 3 posts plus the one I just posted.

GNOMISH INVENTIONS:

TEENSIE:
 Teensie says, "I have invented a dandy cigar trimmer so each cigar is perfectly and uniformly clipped to your specifications. You just place it in the cradle in the box, and close the lid. It does it all the rest."

 Teensie rummages through a sturdy steel chest searching with intent, but it quickly becomes apparent she's not got a clue where to look.
 Teensie asks, "Um, could someone loan me a cigar?"
 Aeslyba exclaims, "Oh, me, me! Teensie, I gots one!"
 Aeslyba gets a shadegrown cigar from inside her green backpack.
 Aeslyba offers Teensie a shadegrown cigar.
 Teensie accepts Aeslyba's shadegrown cigar.
 Teensie puts her cigar in her steel chest.

 (Teensie nervously bows and leans over her box. She carefully fits the cigar into the cradle in the chest..)

 (Teensie closes the lid triggering a spring latch, causing the box to shudder and jitter for a short while, stopping with a sudden sproingggg.)

 Teensie blushes a bright red color.
 Aeslyba gasps!
 Aeslyba wobbles, looking a bit faint.
 Aeslyba asks, "My..... my... my... cigar?"
 Aeslyba glances at Teensie.
 Aeslyba begins pouting.
 Teensie gets some shadegrown pulp from inside her steel chest.

BORIKEN:
 Boriken says, "This is the Anlas counter... but I also call it Serenity Now."

 (Boriken starts unpacking a collection of assorted springs, miniature axles, springs plus 12 little bells, two tiny bronce wings, a little sparrow's silver head, golden bird's body and silver bird's legs. Also a round heavy base and a wooden trunk with one long and one short branch sprouting about halfway it.)

 (Boriken quickly attaches the base to the trunk. He looks for a while at the rest of the pieces, springs and gears. FInally, as if inspired... he starts making a roughly piramidal pile with all the pieces, starting with the gears and springs that make up the base of the piramid and crouning it with the balanced head of the sparrow. No piece was attached to another as you would have expected.)

 (Boriken grabs the trunk and swinging the base attached to it as if a hammer, starts savagelly pouding at the pile anmd sending metal bird parts, bells, springs and gears flyng in all directions while as if in a trance chanting...)

Boriken chants:

    "Serenity Now Serenity Now!"

OPALMAE:
 (Opalmae gets a long stick from her bag, then carefully attaches what looks like a plate with raised sides to one end. She then gets a flat board from her sack, and attaches the stick to the board. After rummaging her her pockets a moment, she pulls out a shiny metal spring and puts it under the stick. She tests the tension by pushing up and down on the plate, then smiles at the crowd.)

 (Opalmae gets a delicious looking tart from her bag and puts it in the plate on the end of the spring. Pushing down on it gently, she moves the board to aim it at Mykk, eyeing him and the stick alternately as she appears to aim the device.)

(Opalmae releases the plate and the tart goes flying toward Mykk, who unfortunately doesn't seem to wake up quickly enough to what's happening, and opens his mouth a moment too late. He gazes at Opalmae in shock through the dripping custard, as she shrugs and gets another tart from her bag.)

 Opalmae cheerfully exclaims, "A tart launcher!"

[editor's note: for the record, I saw the tart coming and had my mouth open, and caught most (some, heh) of it--yum!]

GRASK:
 (Grask pulls out his spiffy Swiss Zoluren Expeditionary Force Stick! You notice the stick has a changeable head that allows you to twist off the end of the stick for a spiffy addition.)

 Grask says, "This is the spiffy window head, you put it on the window seal and push forward at an angle! It pushes the window straight open! Or the spiffy fan head to fan the flames of your chimney. The stick is light and sturdy for affective use for Gnomes, Halflings, and Dwarves. It even works for other races that are also lazy! I will now demonstrate."

 (Grask pulls his stick up forward and twists on the window head. From all the way across the room he opens the window!)

 (Grask than turns the entire stick around for the nifty window closing head! He clamps it on the end of the window and Schhhhaaaawwwiiinnnngggg! The flies can't get in no more!)

First Place: Grask (who got bonus points for an invention that worked!) Second Place: Teensie

OLVI SMOKE LINES:

 (Fizzia puffs out four small balls of smoke which unfurl into the image of three kittens tumbling over a ball of yarn.)

 (Melindrha exhales a line of smoke into her cupped palm slowly, building a tree. Squinting her eyes, she carefully puffs out some leaves, watching the tree go from spring-like fullness through to the bare branches of winter as the smoke melts away. She closes her fist around the last wisps of leaves.)

 (Mykk exhales three rings of smoke towards Meli in what appears to be at first a rude gesture. But then they hang around her mouth briefly like a Dwarven beard!)

 [editor's note: I'm pretty sure I got the basic idea from one of Fial's contest entries--so it goes.]

 Mykk says, "That was in honor of Melindrha helping defend Stone Clan during their recent war."

 (Gariz exhales a white ball of smoke.. that breaks open slowly and you see a small dragon fly out.)

First Place: Melindrha

DWARVEN STOMPS:

 (Towena stomps about in time to the dance, her armor and weapons clanking in an ear-pleasing syncopation.)

 (Eupholus tucks in beard in his belt before beginning....unfortunately not well enough and stomps his beard...just jerking himself into the mud)

 (Pagius stomps around the gathering giving the ladies a light smooch on the cheek and ducking away before he can get slapped and patting all the males firmly on the back all the while beaming like the drunken fool he is.)

 (Mahkrin jumps into the air bashing his heels together, his armor making a resounding *Clank*, after landing he begins to create a loud and pounding rhythm, after a particularly tricky crossover pattern a vision of humans on a stage with headbands and a gurgling brook come to mind)

 (Nalak starts stomping as a soldier would, marching off to war. He starts pounding his feet harder into the ground, raising puffs of dirt and dust....He builds up his stomp to a crescendo, slamming his feet down. Some may wonder if his bootfalls make it to the World Dragon's Ears.)

 (Spartope stomps quickly thrice creating a loud "thud thud thud" sound echoing throughout the area sounding remarkably like an angry three-legged mule.)

 (Grimslayer screams with madness and sharply lifts one knee followed by the other bringing each steel souled boot crashing down like iron hammers on an anvil of granite)

 (Ranelore stomps so furiously her tights work down to her knees...trip...fall...topling stomping dwarves like dominos jumps back up)

 (Aeslyba stomps to such a feverish pitch that the soles of her boots begin to part from the uppers, revealing her petite toes. In true Dwarven form, never so much as a ripple disturbs her ale, however.)

 (Malkavik stomps powerfully, his beard swaying to the strong beat of his boots.)

First Place: Nalak

[as transcribed by Mykk Dalys]

Id like to note that in my quest for world domination and the enslavement of halfings, thief halfings will not be harmed, nor their families. All other halfings are to report to my fort (i.e the old shack outside town) with their tarts and fluff and be ready for reassignment to ship yard cleaning detail.

All renegade halfings will be hunted down by the royal Constantinian cavarly (i.e my pet cat). Those found in such a manner will be subject to the cruel punishment of forever death and deathfullness (i.e a comfy chair).

-Constatine, your future king and lord.

-Note: Constatine forbids you to take action against his actions, doing so will have all tart and tart items repremanded.

-Secondary Note: none of the above applies to halfings older and stronger then Constatine, please do not think violent thoughts about Constatine; Constatine is your freind. Infact, you should give him a hug and a few platinums, Damaris knows he loves you slaves-err halfings.

Rumors abound of a familiar red tricycle being sighted pedaling around Arthe Dale. Could this be true? Has he returned? And How will Gabela explain, the one tart a day period which she was subjected to? Let us all rejoice in the return of the Dale's first Thane and one of the greatest halflings to ever grace the realms. Squirt is back!

Don't miss the first Olvi gathering with Olvi Fial in the Common room at the Arthe Hollow Inn. Everyone is invited, but only topics relating to Olvi issues will be discussed. The gathering will start at 5pm ET on Sunday, April 15th.

Refreshments will be served.

No transportation will be provided to the gathering, that's what you have those 2 big hairy feet for.

<<The gathering will start at 5pm ET on Sunday, April 15th.>>

As in, Easter??? Ai ai ai. I'd be there if I could, but it would take, umm... a miracle? I'd say save me a tart but look what group I'm talking to!

Olvi topics huh. Hmm, how about Glythtide Gala, Sunday April 22nd (plug plug plug!).

A little bird told me Arthe Dale should try to put a bid on the Seerah for our own personal Olvi use, I thought that was pretty funny.

Rascalt's not the only one who has seen a little squirt around, that should be good for some gossip.

Anyone who shows up should see if Fial has a new smoke image to teach you?

Here's something--any thoughts on what we could do as Olvi for those Olvi who's worlds DON'T revolve around picnics and concerts?

I'm looking for an Olvi Bard and Cleric to help us kick off the Glythtide Gala next week. I've talked with Gabela, she doesn't think she can make it. I haven't talked to the Elothean Cleric of Glythtide Starsha yet, but I swear she's Olvi at heart. And anyway, all races are invited.

That's it off the top of my head. Ilityn and Noah, who I met at Melindrha's wedding to Tirsten last weekend (awesome Meli!), sorry I haven't been in game much this week, I've got family from out of town staying with me through Monday.

Live while you live,

--aka Mykk

I want to extend a big thank you to Sister Taffei Snarfn'tart for offering to speak a few words at the opening ceremonies of Glythtide's Gala!

Now, if there is an Olvi bard out there who would like to share a song or short story as well, I'm thinking it would make a nice addition to the proceedings.

Thanks Taffei!

<<So Squirt may make a come back.... Ponders Thane voted in by a landslide --SOIM>>

Since I know Soim reads the halfling folder, I thought I would reply here and not in the Thieves Den:

Gee, thanks Soim, I knew I could count on your vote! ::poke::

A few other points of interest, since I knew the topic was bound to come up sometime from somewhere:

1. If Squirt told me he wanted to be Thain/Thane again, I'd step down in a heartbeat.

2. The position has always been appointed, albeit sometimes self-appointed.

3. Since accepting Rascalt's appointment in November 1999, I've invested a lot of time in promoting Olvi interests. If you look at the return on investment in terms of # of players my actions made a difference to vs. time spent, it would be laughable if DR weren't such a fun and addictive game. However, in terms of the rp opportunities that were opened up for Mykk, the investment is priceless.

4. I spent a fair chunk of time at Fial's meeting yesterday making sure GM Fial, GM Morzy (new Olvi champion), and the other players present realize there is a large Olvi contingent out there who are not into picnics, concerts, or foothair beads, who are just as dedicated to their roleplay as the aforementioned group is, and that their opinions and efforts should be given just as much consideration. I try to look out for ALL Olvi interests, including as I see it, stat-halflings, combat-halflings (and other non-picnic goers), and fluff-halflings (not meant as an insult to the picnic goers).

5. The fluff-Olvi I know don't wear pink tights, as you suggested in a post several months ago ::grin:: A post I didn't reply to because even as you picked on "us", I sensed a mutual respect from you.

Hopefully we still have that mutual respect, Soim, I know I'd be crazy not to appreciate the fact you chose the halfling race.

 Bah, you just had to make me go and post here... Yea I read it everyday but rarely post or go to functions... No I am not a grouch but just twice bitten once shy now... Like Gabela who I am sure had 2 husbands she never would have dreamed would walk away from realms... I had 2 wives and lightning struck twice because they both left me for Asherions call. No hard feelings they even offer me to play AC... but they walked from DR and left me kell hauled... high and dry...

 Well Them single Olvi women can be auwfull sweet and I am to scared to melt so I keep my distance... Hmmm. I seem to be on a babble run... Back to the point...

 Yes I read here and yes you are a Excellent Thain but Squirt is a legand and always will be. as one I am sure he would not even ask you to step down... My comment on that board was more of one in jest and said in humor and not said as a insult to you...

 So you keep up the good work and I will keep avoiding the bedazzeling Olvi women for as long as I can!

 Soim

::bats her married (and therfore safe!) eyelashes at Soim::

Not all of us were sweet when single. ::winks::

Meli- Mykk, don't you dare tell him different. I'm mean, I tell you, cruel.

Okay, for the record, I talked with Squirt's player the other night and tried to get him to take the Thain position, and even proposed a good way it would work, and he wouldn't do it.

Not that Mykk is looking to give up the position, just... it was Squirt, and I had what I thought would be a fun alternative.

So, Squirt, we've been on the edge of our seats since a witness said you went overboard? I don't know exactly where the tricycle is now, but I remember it was found. Do we get a story?

Message   Pickled Halfling feet! (446)
By        CLIU@PLAY.NET
On        Apr 26, 2001 at 10:11

I just got this contract:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Trading Contract Issued by: Dirge

 The guild office at Leth Deriel requires 19 barrels of pickled Halfling feet,
 to be delivered within about 8 anlasaen.

 The bearer of the goods and this contract will receive,
 upon safe and timely delivery of the merchandise, a payment
 in the form of the local currency.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You estimate these goods are currently worth 5548 Kronars on delivery.

I don't know about you guys, but those Elves in Leth owe us a BIG explanation!

I'll probably be cross posting this in the trader folder, but I think our champion should maul Godrich and Kaikyu first.

Shaunn,

It is spelled as: Thain

Thane, I believe, is a Norse word, and while we may like to envision ourselves at times as large, lumbering, viking-types (is that a clear visual?), we're probably better off with a word that sounds nice, but is different. Thus, Thain.

As far as a story goes ... I'm trying to keep a low profile for the time being. When I feel myself worked back into society, I'll share what I've been through.

Squirt Furfoot, City Ranger
