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,

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!

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?

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.

Subject  Fial's First Gathering 4/15/01--Summation (451)
Hello everyone. Coming from the "better late than never" department, I offer you this summation of Fial's first Gathering from April 15, 2001. It's more heavily edited than my usual work, ie, I've smooshed Fial quotes from here and there into one place, left out a couple things I thought were repetitive, re-arranged the order, etc.

Also, usual message board policy dictates not putting up conversations from GMs, but since it was a public forum, I hope I'm not stepping on any toes. If the post gets yanked, I won't cry at my keyboard (unless it gets me an RPA, heh), I'll just re-do a summary sans quotes. --aka Mykk

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

FEET, FEET, FEET:

 TOE RINGS: Fial says, "not right now, but maybe in the future, for toes wearing stuff. Setting up a slot like that is very difficult." Fial says, "but we'll see."
 TOE WIGGLING: Fial nods.
 FOOTHAIR STYLIST "MERCHANT": Fial says, "maybe."
 WILL FOOTBRUSHES BE AVAILABLE AGAIN: Fial says, "yep."
 FOOTWEAR: Fial nods. Fial says, "sort of like an ankle adornment or legwraps." Fial says, "no one is saying you can't wear shoes or boots. even I have when it has gotten extremely cold to protect my feet. But generally I prefer my feet bare." Fial says, "but that's me." Fial says, "its an idea, will explore the possibility."
 POUCH WORN ON FOOT: Fial says, "noted, We'll look into it. Its a good idea."
 TANNING AND FOOTWEAR: Fial says, "could happen." Fial says, "we'll have to bring that up with the ranger folk."
 OLVI WHO WANT TO SHAVE FOOTHAIR: Fial says, "if we get a foot hair thing going on, that can happen. and Olvi who decide to wear some sort of shoe or boot, may have bald spots." Fial says, "where the footwear rubs off the hair."

HUMAN GUARD AT ARTHE DALE VILLAGE GATE: Fial says, "well there's this problem." Fial says, "its hard to keep an Olvi guard there." Fial says, "everyone we have had keeps wandering off."

SMOKING IMAGES: Fial says, "well I have this huge project I have been working on." Fial says, "its called alchemy/substances." Fial says, "Lots of pressure for me to get it done from all sides."

CITIZENSHIP: To summarize, Citizenship is not Fial's domain, but I gather Citizenship is a work-in-progress, so as it stands, Halflings and/or Arthe Dale MIGHT get something someday.

MORE SIZE-RELATED VERBS: Fial says, "good idea." Fial says, "I agree." Fial says, "unfortuantly most of the verbs are not my domain, so I have to get permission to fiddle with them, or ask to have them changed." Fial says, "and somethings seeming so simple are sometime not."

FRECKLES: Fial says, "there are a couple new verbs in the works, which you should see shortly, that I think you will approve of." Fial says, "its possible" Fial says, "but the cream would be like the anti-beard cream." Fial says, "if you depart, it needs to be reapplied."

WEAPON SIZE BEING RACE SPECIFIC: Rascalt says, "And for my last comment of the day, I've been plugging this with all the race champions and they LOVE the idea thus far... Weapons should feel different for different races, An ME should be HE for halflings, LE, ME, and we could have our own LE we share with gnomes, and our LE to togs and kaldar would be toothpicks, and 2HE would be like a 3 Olvi weapon."
 Fial snorts, loudly. Fial says, "can't argue with you there."
 Rascalt says, "Solomon said it was possible if there was enough interest." Rascalt grins. Rascalt says, "So I'm trying to spread interest amongst the race champions."
 Fial says, "but until something drastic happens with combat, I don't see it happening." Fial says, "but as soon as we can do it, I'll push very hard for it." Fial says, "The weapon thing may happen, but most likely not. Should of been that way from the start, and it would be very very difficult to change it. But I can't rule out the possibilty." Fial says, "its not likely to happen anytime soon, but if it does, we'll figure something out to make it fair."

HALFLING QUARTERS IN EVERY CITY: Shaunn says, "Are there special quarters for Olvi in every major city? I know we're supposed to be everywhere" Shaunn says, "I haven't thought to look for it specifically"
 Fial says, "almost every city." Fial says, "you look around you will find some Olvi living there." Fial says, "may not be defined as like Riverhaven."

RACE-RELATIONS WITH GOR'TOGS: Shaunn says, "I was wondering, the histories say we are supposed to be pretty close to the Gor'tog race, right? Like friendly and such"
 Fial says, "yep" Fial says, "but there's exeptions to every rule." Fial says, "hopefully there will be some more books on that in the libraries."
 Shaunn asks, "Is it possible for us to get some sort of special verbs in regards to them then?" Shaunn asks, "Maybe like wax their heads if they're sitting?"
 Fial says, "we will discuss it with the race team and Tog gurus." Fial says, "but good idea."

OLVI SHOP: Fial nods.

LANGUAGE AND HISTORIES: Rascalt asks, "Language and Histories... The dwarves just got their books, is anything in the works for us?"
 Fial says, "in the early planning stages." Fial says, "dwarves got that for a very good reason, which I can't dicuss here."

REGULAR MEETINGS: Fial says, "Ok. we're going to try to have some sort of meeting or event every six to eight weeks, but don't hold it to me."

NEW OLVI CHAMPION MORZY: Fial says, "Morzy is more on the events side, while I'm more on the coding side of things. Though we both cross the line some."

FIAL'S PRIORITIES: Fial says, "about 80 percent of my current effort is on alchemy and substances. Until thats working, thats my priority." Fial says, "once that is done, then I can do more Olvi related things."

MENU: On the tart cart you see an iced pitcher of cool taffelberry-flavored milk, a mushroom and bacon tart, a chocolate tart filled with cherry sauce, a creamy caramel pecan tart, a tutti frutti goblin warrior lollipop, a hogshead of chilled iceberry grog, a crispy taffleberry tart, a cherry tart dripping with gooey white frosting, a savory lobster tart, a sweet apple tart sprinkled with cinnamon, a candy troll-foot, a large ceramic tuilp-shaped bowl filled with frothy Tulip Julip punch, a sticky rum raisin tart, a savory venison tart with a spicy leek sauce in a flaky pastry crust and a savory sage and onion tart.

LOOKS:
 GameMaster Fial Fadail, a Halfling.
 He has violet eyes, wavy dark brown hair with a white streak running through it that is loose, and dark brown skin.
 Fial has transcended time.
 He is in good shape.

 He is wearing a leather aventail, a leather helm, some gloves, some leather greaves, a chain shirt, a plain portable hole, a narrow braided leather belt with small flasks hanging from it, a journey pack and a gold badge.

 GameMaster Morzy Chudwuj, a Halfling.
 He has black eyes, thinning white hair, and fair skin.
 Morzy has transcended time.
 He is clean shaven.
 He is in good shape.

 He is wearing a pair of berry-stained knickers with bright red suspenders, a lime green linen shirt with purple pockets, a dark brown leather shoulder satchel with a gold buckle and a solid gold toe-ring set with a sparkling tart-shaped ruby.

Subject  A Really Old Olvi (454)
>l lokta You see Magnate Lokta Dabou, a Halfling. He has green eyes, short thick golden hair that is loose, and fair skin. He is a daydreamer for a Halfling.

The above is from a fellow Halfling looking at me. I had not ever heard the the term "daydreamer." I asked a couple non-Olvi, they both said I still looked young. ::sigh:: I was hoping to be in my prime before I left, but I suppose there is no prime for an Olvi.

My INFO is as follows: Gender: Male Age: 35 Circle: -- You were born on the 37th day of the 6th month of Arhat the Fire Lion in the year of the Silver Unicorn, 329 years after the victory of Lanival the Redeemer.

Maybe this isn't a surprise to other people, but it is to me. I started Lokta in October of 1996. He may have been a "daydreamer" for a while, since I've not really played for the last couple months. But I just thought I'd pass this along.

True enough! The variance in starting ages out of the character manager take a little of the fun out of it, but "Daydreamer" is definately my favorite "title" in the game!

Interesting side note: someone explained to me, and it seems to be true, that you get the age-title Daydreamer on the YEAR of your 35th birthday. Mykk was born in the 5th month, and it still shows he's 34, but because we are in the Elanthian year of his 35th birthday, he got the title. Hope that makes sense,

Thanks for the census as always, Fial.

In light of our recent thread regarding age, can you pull a report on all (if not all, active then I guess) Olvi by age group? ie, 8% Daydreamer, 35% Kneebiter, 45% Whippersnapper, etc.?

Um, Fial,

Can the Olvi hold a party for the Gnomes, they been getting a bit skittish and they need to be fattened up some. Me getting hungy,and they not worth the effort with all the skin and bones.

I heard the Olvi could fatten them up with all their awesome cooked <gags> food, then they may be able to start getting their population up when they reach that healthy plump state. If they don't, they may fade away, and may have to go to my next favorite :-)

But, got to say, Halflings are good too.. they got spunk.

Shakahn

<Steals a tart from a passing Olvi, opens his backpack, pulls out his captive Gnome to shove the tart in' the poor things mouth, making it finish it all before shoving it back into the backpack and securing it.

First, thanks Cadaya for the History of Elanthia timeline, and any others who worked on that project as well.

It's possible this information already exists, and I either haven't found it or have forgotten it, but does anyone know the origin of the halfling race in Elanthia? The timeline makes reference to early settlers I think, but does not address the origin.

Thanks,

 SO we are nutral in charisma and Intel. Nothing wrong there.

 We get a perk in Stamina and Reflex, gotta love that. And a Double perk in Agality.

 Hey I am at the ooint in my old age with 35 str, 36 wis and 36 dis were I can coast for years to come bumping Intel some and Eatting up stamina, reflex and agality.

 Caltrop >>

Hello Caltrop, I caught the tail end of your thread in the Citizenship folder. No, we can't be citizens of Arthe Dale at this time, only Zoluren. This probably won't change, but you never know.

First off, there's not all that many posts in this folder, probably the fewest of any Race folder. If you have the time, could be good reading for you if you want to get involved. Get to know some of what's gone on in the past, see some names, that kind of thing.

Now, to try to answer your questions specifically:

1) Squirt = first Thain of Arthe Dale. Actually, I figure there were Thains before him, but he would be the first player-Thain of Arthe Dale, and he *did* originate the term, including purposefully twisting the spelling of Thane to be Thain, thus creating a sort of Elanthian term. Because he was the first, and beloved by all the old-time players, he is still the most famous Olvi and Thain there is, and will be. Legend status if you will. The second Thain was Rascalt, who passed the mantle onto my character, Mykk a year and a half ago or so.

2) Government. Depends on your definition. Of all the races, I feel Olvi (halflings) are the most independent and anti-government/anti-structure group of them all. It works for us. Doesn't work so well for getting us together at events, but that's just the way it goes.

3) Who is in charge. You might say me (Mykk), as the current Thain. There is also Phangor, the current Mayor of Arthe Dale. Again, read past posts for detailed explanations, there is a handful of them, easy to pick out by the post headings, too. "Olvi Politics" comes to mind. The caveat here is that these are arbitrary, player-created positions, and only hold what weight people who rp them will have. And personally, the one serious, underlying OOC/IC agenda I play with Mykk as Thain, is keeping Olvi a free and independent race. Sort of an anti-government government. I know that's contradictory, but like I said, it kind of works for us.

4) Finding out more. Read the folder. Start highlighting names on your list so you see them in game easier. Say Hi to a couple of them. One thing about halflings and their players, we have a good reputation for roleplaying. There are some stat-thieves who might not, but that's a given with any race. And actually, a lot of the so-called stat-thieves are good rp'ers too, I've found. Mykk tries to make himself very available to any Olvi anytime, though having spent the good portion of a real-life year in Arthe, I must say Mykk and I are both thoroughly enjoying our vacation on Aesry.

5) Taking your place. Well, up until not too long ago, there was another Olvi paladin named Eadain, who may very well still be around, not sure and haven't seen him lately. He also felt like he was the only one. He chose as his paladin-honor-duty thing to be a paladin of Glythtide and Arthe Dale. That was a fine path to take I thought for a halfling paladin. But it's up to you. You can be as active or as inactive as you want, and you'll still be "family". There are Olvi like Soim and Gabela, who rarely get involved in specific activities, but are awesome resources. There are others like myself who rarely miss a halfling-related event, I've even run a couple. But the cool thing is we all kind of look out for each other.

According to in-game sources: We're for us, first, last, an always. The others wanna squabble over who owns the land, fine. When they finish killin each other over it, they'll find that they have Olvi tenants who settled there a while ago. We'd be able to take over the world, pretty much, but that's too much like work. By the way, work is bad, creating smoke shapes, drinking and finding new food recipies is good. We're spread out, Theren to Shard to Aesry. Oh yeah, and we appreciate nicely trimmed foothair. ::winks::

Okay... <chuckle> It's late, so this one WILL be short:

 No Sheriff currently.
 Houses and knolls are no more expensive in the Dale than anyplace else, 5 plat I think.
 Halflings consistently come in at 3% of the active population.
 There is SOME history available, but not a single history if I understand you correct.

Thanks, and I've got a couple more about house. I guess you have to be a premium customer to get a house right? Now if you are, can you own more than one house. Say for instance could I have my true home in Arthe Dale and then my summer place on the islands?

Oh ya, and where is the best place to get some tarts in the Crossing/Arthe region?

You have to be premium to own a house/knoll/whatever, 90 days in fact I believe. You can only own one. Some people work around that a couple different ways. One, you can always get a second premium account, Simu will love you ;-) Otherwise, every house owner gets one key to give out to someone, which gives them access to your home. So you may have a knoll in Arthe Dale, and your wife might have a summer home on Aesry which you have a key to. But ultimately, one home per premium account.

<<Oh ya, and where is the best place to get some tarts in the Crossing/Arthe region?>>

Not sure, could probably get some more help on that one. I know of at least one food website now. My two favorite standards (chocolate and apple) are for free in the Arthe Hollow Inn in Arthe Dale. On Ratha I believe is an amazing selection. They are all over really. I tend to get mine at special events like weddings and such, then tuck a half dozen in my backpack for when I need a snack while I'm hunting.

<<And Mykk is a good representative of the bunch. Even though he's starting to schmooze and scheme more and more like a Politician.>>

Wow, I tried to cheer up the wonderful, beautiful (and single, guys ::nudge nudge::) Griffina last night, and THAT'S what I get??? I'll save my "schmoozing and scheming" for the Olvi lasses who will appreciate it then! I think Razzleberrie is still on Aesry. Oh, then of course, there is the one Olvi lass I adore more than all others....

--Mykk, the not-so-single-anymore Olvi, yes, lasses, you can begin your weeping now, LOL ;-P

Hey, I've been bugging everyone asking them questions and now I've got some more stuff to post about.

I've got a friend whose a dwarf (at least he's not too tall) and hes part of the Stone Clan. They seem to get a lot more benefits cause they are in an organized group. I thought a halfling group of some sort would be equally beneficial. Not sure what it would be called or anything, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Also, I was wondering where everyone lives. I've got all the high level halflings highlighted but the only one I've ever seen is Soim.

If you all live in one particular region I'll happily move to be with the crowd.

Also, when are we gonna have another party in Arthe?? I wanna go to one pretty bad!! :::rubs plate covered tummy:::

 Do assess race sometimes to see races in rooms and the funny rhing about haflings is that they really do wander all over alot. I run into the ones I know everywere.

 Still we are only like 3% of population and around 30% of us are thieves with a decent amount of empaths. So think like a thief or empath and you have a better chance of seeing more of us.

There are 3 major towns you'll find halflings in. Crossing <check the thief guild, empath guild, and ranger guilds> Aesry <older halflings go there for vacations> and Arthe Dale. Arthe is swarming with them <g> Most of us have homes in either Arthe or Riverhaven as well. Check the empath guild, Dunshade manor, and deer trail in Riverhaven... In Aesry, the bank, the playhouse, Blood wolves, and Uyns, most are found in Uyns cause that's where we get our kicks <g>

But like Soim said, most of us can't stand to be in the same place for a long period of time. Just ask my wife, I driver her up the wall <g> One day I'll be in shard, the next I'm in M'riss, and the following I'm up in Theren. She has decided she'll follow me around the mainland as long as its not Theren and she refuse to goto the islands unless I promise I'm staying there for at least 2 weeks <g>

As for becoming an organized group... Not gonna happen... Unless you manage to bring plenty of tarts, and booze to keep us coming, halflings are much to free spirited to organize and meet on a regular basis, we prefer to have spur of the moment parties and just roam about. It was tried once, <snickers> failed miserably.

Greetings everyone,

I'm going to stick with OOC, just easier. First, it's good to see and feel some Olvi enthusiasm coming around again. Just seems to be how it is (the ups and downs), but actually once you get used to the idea, it's pretty cool to not have to be "on" all the time. I still say we're a pretty free-spirited race, puppeteered by some pretty free-spirited players. As Rascalt mentioned, the idea of weekly meetings, while nice to think about when you see what Hegemonic did with Stone Clan, just don't work well for us. Dwarves=organization/groups, Olvi=wanderlust/individuality (in my opinion).

I'm recently coming off of about a month-long break myself, due to a distinct increase in my social life, so no complaints there. Seems to have given me some new enthusiasm for the game and Mykk too, so it's all a good thing. When DR gets you down, take a break. You'll either come back refreshed or not come back, a signal that it was just your time to leave.

Heh, going to be another long post, isn't it.

I have two ideas I've been developing for us Halflings to get together and enjoy a little community spirit. The most recent one has to do with Griffina on Aesry. She's become an enemy, maybe even player-enemy #1 of some (GMNPC) necromancer Althiras working some bad-guy stuff (trying to kill Councilor Urdain) on the islands. He's killed her once, and threatened her life again. I happen to be good friends with the following Olvi all on Aesry right now (last I knew): Griffina, Fizzia, Hipcrey, Razzleberrie, Rascalt... and I think there are a couple others I've seen like Ascot that I don't know as well but are out there. I'm thinking it could be fun to come to Griffina's aid, and spearhead a Halfling Resistance movement on Aesry <g>. Naturally there will be other resources we can work with, our non-Olvi friends and the Iron Circle come to mind. Griffina doesn't know this idea yet, and she hasn't been online yet today for me to ask, but I'm sure she'd laugh and think it was great.

The second idea kind of fell in my lap courtesy Bubbinster and the Official Order The Tavern Troupe. They recently held a raffle, where for a 2-plat ticket, you bought a chance to win a Tavern Troupe deluxe package worth at least 20 plat. Guess who won?!!! It comes with several songs, a play, even a custom song (or maybe play). While it's veeeery tempting to make them all come to my knoll to perform for just Fizzia and myself <g>, I pretty much have to share this, right??? I'm a patient person, so have been just kind of biding my time with this one, but the idea in first place so far is this. Basically, another Short-People's party with the Dwarves and Gnomes. Mykk has partied in Arthe with this group, and had a great time. Mykk's also partied in Stone Clan. What I'd love to see happen is for the Gnomish Village to get completed and released in-game, and use my free Tavern Troupe performance to celebrate this. If any Gnomes have any feedback on this, I haven't gotten around to posting in your folder, so I'm not sure if this event is around the corner or another year or two away.

Those are my ideas, I'm always open for other ideas, especially when someone else like Teminesca takes charge and I don't have to do any of the work!

Caltrop, you seem pretty into all this, I hope you stick around. As far as your question about the oldest and most powerful Olvi, tough call. Oldest in terms of how long the same player has played the same character, of active players, might be Squirt, but since he may have retired (again), maybe Gabela? Most powerful of course depends on your definition. Mykk respects Gabela maybe the most, and she's like the 3rd highest cleric in the lands. In terms of strength, it's gotta be Soim. In terms of combat, probably our hero Soim again. I was at Rock and Eyoni's wedding, and the Olvi Dseth won the no-rules combat tournament. Wonn is pretty high level I think, wouldn't surprise me if he didn't kick some butt. Tough for me to say, since I don't hang with the higher circle folk.

Sorry for the long post everyone,

--aka Mykk, aka Thain of Arthe Dale

ps, just talked to Griffina, she's into us getting together, even though with GM-run events the coordination can be hit or miss depending on who is online, and also informed me Hipcrey walked on accident the other night :-(

Have to agree with mykk. The players who choose to play dwarves seem more suited for what we do, and the players who choose to play Olvi tend to be scattered all over. However, I've always thought about how the races would prefere to meet, and in my mind the wanderlust must give way to nostalgia time to time, and end up being a huge party were everyone decides to get together.

Best thing I think in my outsiders opinion is to pick a day to get together every IC year, a day of celebration for whatever reason you all feel is Olvish enough to warrent it. That way ya'll can get together every 3 RL months and just pah-tay.

I should've avoided the question about who is the oldest and who is the most powerful Olvi, because lists are invariably incomplete. Just thought of Phangor and Danner as two very long-time players, I bet they are both "Trailblazers". Also thought of Snare in the "powerful" catagory, as a high level ranger.

Well since we went OOC I'm gonna talk for a little while :)

First of all I was wondering about what circle you are Soim?? Second, the parties sound great and the sooner the better. Third, what is the absolute smallest critter you can hunt on the Aesry? and last if the dwarven leader is reading this, you need to give Mahkrin a promotion or something. He is awesome, very kind to newbies.

Now this last part is incredible long, so read at your own risk and don't operate heavy machinery afterwards. :)

I think I've got a pretty good percpective on the game itself. I started playing 5 years ago when AOL had it for free. I played for about 8 months then. At that time all of my friends played and it was a blast. I played a halfling ranger named Pontas who was first level and had 70 ranks in longbow (back when you were a novice forever until you got 2nd level) I was around when Shard opened. :) That was fun. I think I take the award for first person to have their head squished by a gargoyle. Anyways when my friends quit I got bored and also quit. I came back somewhere in between then and now when I heard through a friend they opened a new continent. I played for about a month after the free trial, had a 10th level barbarian made to see the islands, never made it cause I got so bored.

Coming back now I realized what made the first time so much more fun. My friends. So when I came back this time I decided to try something new, and to get involved in the game, not just level pushing. I'm having a blast. A lot has changed, and I'm looking forward to getting a horse. <grin>

<<First of all I was wondering about what circle you are Soim??>>

 Not sure what bearing that has on anything but if you read all over boards then you know all about me, my skills and my stats. I am one of the most unsecretive players in game. I play and compete with myself. I don't fear who is ahead of me or better than me. I am not in a race or out to compete except with my own goals. Overall I am a happy player and I have fun and could care less whos is higher or badder. Why because I know I give 100%. See howe easy it is to play a game and have fun. Just stop worrying about everyone else. Except when thy try to steal your thunder or abalities beause they want to get something for nothing. Examples being able to see you hide whenever they want or protect thee pockets just because they want to. Sure there or skills to do that but some folks don't want to train they just want the silver plater pollished there way and placed in there lap...

 Well I am sure in a babbling mood today....

 Your answer:

 Soim 75th Circle

 Strength : 35
 Reflex : 36
 Agility : 40
 Charisma : 25
 Discipline : 36
 Wisdom : 36
 Intelligence : 36
 Stamina : 40

 Nothing great and nothing lame I strive to be a jack of all trades and well rounded. Thats part of my long term carreer goals.

I'm not sure who has been a halfling longer, Martee, Myself or Phangor... All 3 of us were in beta I believe... but I didn't start Rascalt until about a week into beta, I had my Human Ranger to play the first week. My guess for oldest in terms of when we started would be Martee, Phangor, then myself.

That was about 10th circle I think. She is 15th now and havin fun with Reavers. May take another shot at those island puppys and kittys real soon (g)

I think it's blood wolves, but you may want to meander over to the Cities and Provinces folder and look in there. For the most part, the islands are intended for mid to high circle adventurers.

Bobcats/Bloodwolves are in the same area. Bobcats are about like cougars so no big worry there, but from what I've been able to find out ya need about 80ish evasion or so fer bloodwolves. I won't swear to that though since I don't hunt much myself.

Greetings fellow Olvi!

Some of you asked, "When's the next party?"

While I don't know of any Olvi-specific parties, there are a couple good opportunities on the horizen. I'd like to tell you about these now, I know I'm not the only one who appreciates a little advance notice.

First, as you may have heard, Elsbette and the Gnomes are putting together a party in Shard. It's going to be August 26th, which is a Sunday evening, 6pm eastern time. I should be there, and have offered to help if I can. It will be held at Fayrin's Rest, and will be featuring a Drinking Songs contest for bards under 16th circle. There will be other performers too, but the contest itself is just for the younger bards. For more details, you can contact me, or wander over to the Gnome folder, I'm sure Elsbette would be happy to help you. Even if you're not performing, should be a good party!

Second, and this is 7 weeks off, but promises to be big... I've hooked up with the Tavern Troupe to help bring to Elanthia "Woodstick", a 2-day music festival! It will be held September 21st and 22nd (Friday night and Saturday), location to be announced. I'll bring you more details as they come, but mark your calendars now, and don't say I didn't give you notice! In fact, Daerlynn has this little advertisement to pass along:

******************************************
 We are seeking performers to audition for a large
 event coming up on September 21 and 22. Do you have
 an act you think audiences would enjoy?

 Have you a duet you sing?
 or a juggling routine?
 A dueling display?
 or perhaps a ritual you pray?

 Do you have a story to tell?
 or a play you do well?
 A dance or a stomp?
 or a limerick romp?

 Then make it a mission
 to come and audition
 posthaste without fail
 send an email!

Seriously, if you have any type of act listed above.. or anything else (a magic show, a comedy routine, etc.), please contact daeriynn@aol.com to set up an audition time. While she is away on vacation from 7/29 through 8/3, you may also contact StrmsCalm@aol.com.

So come and audition, everyone who performs at the event will be paid as well, in platinum kronars. and this event will be BIG!!

Hope to hear from you soon!
******************************************

Personally, I'm working with a large team of awesome people to make this a big event, so again... mark your calendars, and join me in the festivities. Bubbinster promised me there would be plenty of tarts and drink!

::Elsbette rummages around in her brightly painted wooden Gnomic message box, pausing for a moment before resuming her search::

I've had absolutely no one sign up for the contest portion of our event (did I mention there would be cash prizes?). So if there are any bards (or creative non-bards) who would like to perform a song in the concert or contest that evening please send me an e-mail. It looks suspiciously like we are going to have a concert and no contest. We have Xaphira (Elothean) who is scheduled to perform a song she wrote about the Gnomes, and Anliis (Gnome) who is working on a drinking song as concert performers. We're hoping for a nice mix of bards and people of other races at our party.

Yes, we will be providing drinks and tarts.

If, it wasn't hosted by the Shard gnomes, I'd be there, but I refuse to have anything to do with that group as a player, so Rascalt won't be making an appearance. And its nothing against you Elsbette, it has to do with comments other members made towards close friends of mine.

Yes, we have our first brave performer for the drinking song contest and she's a Dwarf. Syrath Bahlahnck, Dwarf of the Stone Clan is now signed up for the contest. Now are you Olvi going to let the Dwarves walk away with the contest prizes unchallenged?

We don't need prizes to know we are the best. We just know it. The dwarves can have their trophies, but they will never mean much cause they will know the only reason they won, is cause an Olvi didn't feel like wandering in.

No she isn't, but she looked the other way when the comments were made. I'm sure she knows exactly what I'm talking about. Kick Halfstaff out of the group and I still wouldn't want to be involved because of their lack of reaction.

I'm not sure what comments those were and I don't make a habit of getting involved in other peoples personal quarrels; especially when both parties involved so obviously lack the maturity to resolve their differences themselves. I will continue to invite Halflings to events we organize since I'm sure that most of the others who read this board have no desire to involve themselves in your personal quarrels either.

Don't think anyone will really know the difference but after 9 levels as the only halfling paladin, I've decided its not worth it. Its too hard to get my stats up. Halflings are ill suited for being Paladins. I have decided to switch over to a ranger. I think they have more to offer as a guild, and it makes more sense as a halfling. Besides Caltrop always had a thing for raccoons (not just in tarts). I'll see you all around, and I hope to make all those parties. :)

(This is just so I feel like someone knows whats going on) :)

I'm sad you made this choice Caltrop, btw, you weren't the only halfling paladin, I know a few and have a 30+ one myself. Its a challenge, but once you hit 20th with a halfling paladin, man is hunting sweet... zero hinderance in heavy plate, PLUS halfling reflexes makes for an untouchable tank <g>

Hello fellow Olvi!

I've yet to make my way up to Arthe Dale, Guild leader Esuin keeps me plugging away at my books in the Guild. Soon though, I hope to earn a bit of a break and come up to find out what the village looks like. So if you see a lost looking Cleric student wandering around, feel free to say hi to me. Oh, and I won't turn down an offer of tarts or rum. :)

Wish I were in Arthe Dale right now, I'd offer to give you the full tour. But alas, I'm still THOROUGHLY enjoying my vacation on Aesry. Should be back to check on some family business in a month or so though (1-2 weeks RL), so if some other kind Olvi hasn't shown you around by then, I'll try to look you up! Maybe try to find that Caltrop guy too.

You know, given all the performances and parties coming up on the mainland, I'll be sticking around for a bit too. Should be fun :-)

--Mykk

ps. You all should have seen the little Olvi hunting party we had the other night. Griffina, Prala, Fizzia and myself tore into some bloodwolves and latamis. We did great, and I had a blast!

Subject  Olvi Empath Myth (544)
Someone told me the other day that there are tons of Olvi Empaths all over the place, and that they were starting to become a sizable chunk of the population (of empaths). Yay for us, but anyway, I can't think of more than a handful, myself included. I always just thought there were a few of us to heal the members of our race who suffer from HoJ and other such detriments of the racial pastime. If anyone could tell me who the Olvi Empaths are, I'd like to know. Off the top of my head I can only think of myself, Razzleberrie, Melindrha, Mingold and Martee. Could someone enlighten me, either here or email, I'd like to know next time someone asks me. (Which is actually quite often).

Ya I was kinda depressed that I gave up, but I didn't really look forward to getting anything in the Paladin's guild after halt. They got rid of the completely working off the hinderance thing (at least not until super high levels) and frankly, I need instant gratification. :) I'm pretty sure patience isn't a halfling trait. Besides I get more verbs, and I missed being able to hide. I suppose now that I'm not a paladin I won't make a good sheriff of Arthe Dale so I'll have to find another position.

Bother way, I got in a pissing match (can I say that?) with some high level paladin the other day who said he was the right hand man of the prince. I told him he had no authority in Arthe Dale and if he ever tried his pompous attitude in my town we'd take him out at the knees. Anyone know anything about this silly prince?

<<I remember Grayrn....he was a hoot....although I ain't seen em in a long time. --Griffina>>

Grayrn was a fine example of one way an empath could make a name for themselves. Basically, he became a fixture in front of the Aesry bank. So much so that I knew if Mykk went to Aesry, he knew there was an Olvi welcoming committee. He could always count on a heal, and if anyone was in trouble on the island, Grayrn would grab a cleric and come running.

Grayrn fell victem to the "different soul-same body" disease. A few months later, a new empath arrived on the scene named something like Grayren, with a personality remarkably like the original Grayrn's... However, I have not seen either lately. I IMed Grayrn's original player 1-2 nights ago, but the person got offline shortly thereafter without answering---awwwww ::sniffle::

Resistance against... what, because we're so... downtrodden? LOL

Although I applaud your enthusiasm and energy, your stance would fall under the category, "Bringing unwarrented attention to our village and peaceful lives."

Then again, you could have the same sense of humor as Shaunn, and only do this to stress me out ;-) ::remembers Shaunn's classic post, "We have a Thane?"::

Sure Caltrop, I'll try to help:

 dr-zabari@play.net (The mean rotten nasty liason who saw fit to remove those posts--before I could see them! jk)
 dr-kottyn@play.net or dr-felshi@play.net (Senior Board Monitors)
 fyremelody@play.net (Senior-Senior Board Queen)

If you want to go over Fyremelody's head, then it's Feedback for you. I recommend sending feedback through the website, and make sure your play.net address works.

If you're looking for general player (and maybe GM) feedback, you could try the Talk to Simutronics / Discussions with Simutronics or Complaints-General folders. From what I've seen though, if you post there, best to keep it VERY generic in how you refer to your instance or it will just get pulled again.

Maybe you should be an Olvi Empath, that seems to be where most of the troublemakers are! ::ducks::

My question would be is there every any Halflings in Arthe Dale? I've snuck out of the guild thrice and everytime I've only run into humans or elves in the village. Esuin is getting wise to me, I don't know how many more times I'm going to make it out before they demand a penance of prolonged study from me.

<<How much are footbrushes and where can I get em?>>

A couple silver I think. Not available in stores, only the occasional merchant. I always buy extras to give away, but I'm out at the moment, gave my last one to Razzleberrie.

<<Are their any halfling instruments? If not, there should be! Although I don't know what kind would be good...>>

I've never heard of halflings favoring any one instrument. Are Glythtide or any of his aspects ever shown with an instrument?

<<Last, are all halfling women married???!!>>

No. ::gets out his little black book, checks again:: Not even close.

<<My question would be are there ever any Halflings in Arthe Dale?>>

Having spent as much time or more as anyone just wandering around Arthe specifically keeping my eyes out for Olvi to talk to, I'd have to say it's depressingly rare.

--aka Mykk

ps. I hope you two aren't bored that it's usually only me answering your questions. I happen to know of a dozen (give or take) halfling players who lurk this folder, but as I'm sure you've guessed by now, we're a pretty quiet bunch. You'll see others pop in here and there depending on the question.

<pop> There are some non-olvi who still have footbrushes, they sell for like a plat, otherwise just have to wait and pray that the footbrush merchie returns, which I'm sure she will.

As for Olvi around Arthe Dale... If I could convince Royce to make the village an in town area you would see me there ALOT. But for now, I can be found popping boxes and carving picks <when I have keyblanks> in the halfling quarter in Riverhaven with frequency... Also if you travel about the homes... the big hummock with roses and pinwheels is mine... Kinda odd how only Mykk and I are left in that room.

Being a Ranger and all I'm always in and out of Arthe Dale. (And I'm always water logged.) I try to keep an eye out for halflings, but as is the trend. We're few and far between. That just makes us a rare item, worth a lot more. :) (Some Halflings could count as antiques...)

<<Are their any halfling instruments?>>

The description on the Syrinx in the bard shop on Aesry states that it's "a traditional Halfling instrument"... it's a wind instrument on the second notch of difficulty (harder than whistles, but easier than flutes)

<<If I could convince Royce to make the village an in town area . . .>>

I really don't think that's an issue. Royce has indicated that the Clans will probably become in-town... if that's the case (which is as certain as Royce's typical answers), then Arthe Dale is a shoe-in for being in-town.

I just hope that my buddy, the limping s'kra, makes his rounds up there. (ponder)

I don't usually lick my finger unless theirs left over food on it. And I'm not saying that most of the halflings are old, I'm just saying that spectacles and a cane are necessary at a certain time in a halflings life. :)

I know I've asked before, but who is the prince? The other day I saw an "animated" guard throw like six people in jail for speaking out against the prince. They don't like the new, no sales bank idea. Anyways it was pretty mean, and I was personally ready to revolt. Is this the prince making these guards so mean, or should I aim my revolution elsewhere?

Subject  Hello from Mykk (574)
Greetings fellow Olvi,

I just returned to Arthe Dale from my hunting expedition on Aesry Surlaenis, and find myself with a few days to relax and be social before heading up to Riverhaven to explore some mysteries at Dunshade Manor.

Bumped into Caltrop already. Introduced him to Baearholt's, home of a most excellent variety of food and drink, priced right, and close enough to stumble home! Hanala, are you out there? Surely Esuin would understand your desire to visit and make offerings at Glythtide's shrine (then take the long way back).

If anyone would like to tip back a few, light one up, scarf a few tarts, and share some tall tales or songs, I'll be haunting Arthe Dale and the Arthe Hollow Inn. Or, Glythtide forbid, you actually have a serious Olvi issue or concern, I'll try to act all Thainly and do what I can.

I don't have the time or energy right now to put together anything fancy, so don't expect games, contests, or whatever. Just a little halfling socializing!

(pun intended)

--Mykk Dalys, Thain

OOC: Tonight (Wednesday) I'll just wander Mykk around Arthe, can't commit though if there's a new South Park <g>. Tomorrow night (Thursday), Mykk will be in the Arthe Hollow Inn at the bar or buffet table from 10pm to midnight eastern time. Any new or old friends are welcome to stop by and say hi.

Don't worry, Caltrop, we'll get you another spear. GM-Fial is the Olvi race champion. Very talented, very into halflings. He's in charge of substances, and is currently embroiled in a system re-write. Does read the boards. If I don't see you tonight, sounds like tomorrow then. Sorry about the spear, you were doing good with it, too, made me want to try one.

I'm here! I'm currently debating the menu in the Arthe Hollow with the lovely and talented waitress. I do believe she said her name was Daisy. I think she feels a cleric in training shouldn't drink anything more exciting than a bit of Taffleberry Fizz. Esuin must have caught on to my ruse and talked with her already. But I do believe I'll be allowed to stay in town a bit after I make my promised trek to the shrine. I do so hope to meet up with you all!

Hello,

I hate saying I'll be someplace and then not showing up. I tried getting ingame until roughly 11pm eastern, about which time I fell asleep <g>. I awoke around 12:30 to find a couple friendly IMs though, that was nice. Wish my volume was louder, maybe they would've woken me up earlier! I'll reschedule a little halfling social soon as I can.

I did get to meet and spend some time with Caltrop 3 nights ago, Hanala 2 nights ago, and Caltrop and Tedo last night. Always fun meeting new halflings! Hope to see them all again soon.

Woah... way to late for me. I'm terrible at morning prayer time if I'm not back in the guild far before then. Someone would have my head if I ended up falling asleep on my knees and snoring in the middle of the ritual! Though, I have discovered it is possible to disguise a hang over in such circumstances. :) Plum wine is wonderful, though not as wonderful as Glythtide's Favor.

Hello hello,

I love seeing new Olvi faces around, and we have at least a couple good new ones in Caltrop and Hanala. Unfortunately there might be others, but if they don't post, it can be hard to find them.

Basically, I'm not asking anyone to mentor them, and far as I can tell neither one needs it, I think they'll both do great. But if you see either one, or any new Olvi, and can include them in something you're doing that night or whatever, I'd love to see it. Get that community spirit thing going you know.

Taffei, I know you like to stick your head in here about once a month <g>. As a cleric, I highly recommend you at least touch base with Hanala. The little time I spent with her was fun fun fun, and she takes her cleric duties seriously--in an Olvi kind of way!

Caltrop, I'm trying to think of a good "mentor" for ya. Eadain I think would've been perfect, but other than the fact his knoll has new pinwheels in front of it, I'm having a hard time confirming if he still plays. He's a paladin who likes to hunt, reminds me of you a lot actually.

Hey old friend. Your place in Olvi history is assured as you were the second Thain of Arthe Dale! I saw your pinwheels, and if the shop re-opens, I may do some shopping as well. Eadain's knoll got some too (he's just west of us), but I haven't seen his screenname pop up in forever, and my email to him got returned undeliverable, so I'm not sure what's up with him.

Caltrop has been putting in some serious playing time, not sure why you haven't seen him in the Village yet. I told him I'd take him to wood trolls or somewhere soon. Hanala was just an awesome rp experience. I'd like to see both of them stick around, so keep your eye out for them and show them a good time ;-)

Caltrop and Hanala, if you need advice on circling, gaining ranks, or mechanics in general, Rascalt's player knows roughly a thousand times more than I do, and is also great to hang out with. He actually has games and what not as his parties, too ::chuckle:: He can be a little evil at times, but his wife Teminesca is one of the nicest people in the realms, so I guess it all evens out ;-)

Thank you! I've tried my hand at quite a few faces in the realms and I must admit, the Halfling cleric has proved to be the most fun so far.

>>Caltrop and Hanala, if you need advice on circling, gaining ranks, or mechanics in general<<

I'd have to say on my list, Circling is far down there. I've gone that route with other bodies in the realms and it just seems to sap the fun. As for Hanala, she can't figure out how to have time to circle with all her studing on how to hide a hangover, and her pursuit of said hangovers.

That being said,

>>I would love ta meet ya Hanala! Bein a cleric of Glythtide meself an all, we gots loads in common. Soon as I get back northward (which should be in about a week) I'll be keepin an eye out fer ya.<<

Ah! Another that has seen the light! His Favor is grand, and constantly in pursuit of it, I am. I would be honored to meet with you, and I'm quite sure Esuin won't make me sneak out for this one! I shall keep an eye out for you also, the eye that isn't on my ale!

Hehe, Mykk forgot to mention one thing Hanala... I can show you how to circle while still being RP intensive <g> Lately I haven't been RPing much, but then again I haven't been playing much either... But I like to consider myself one of the elitest when it comes to RPing in this game, especially when it comes to halflings. And seeing how Rascalt was a cleric for a time, he can teach ya how to hide that hangover too... He can also teach ya how to handle an unrully dead folk, but that's just the inherit evil in him <cackles> If your ever around Arthe Dale and I'm actually on and not playing Asheron's Call or Dark Ages of Camelot, just tap me on the shoulder and I'd be more then happy to help you with anything, especially rping.

Discipline is an essential stat for the reason that it seems to factor in to almost everything. If you want to know what ratio to get, it really is up in the air. You should ask yourself: Do I want to have big pools of field exp? Do I want to absorb fast? Do I want somewhere in between? Most hunters I know like to absorb fast because if they have a bunch of stuff sitting in a big pool when the die, it kinda sucks to be them. As an empath, I like having big pools so I can stuff myself with lore and magic without having to muck up my head. Some people factor in our racial pros and cons, some don't. You really have to tweak around your mentals to see what you like best. Remember, we get penalties to discipline and wisdom, so you may want to take that into account when spending tdp's.

Actually, yes there was. All of the songs were incredible and it made judging the contest an almost impossible task.

I wasn't there to witness, but the moment I saw Taffei enter I knew she'd win... If its singing about booze, halflings will always win... now if its drinking booze, dwarves might put up a fight.. but they are often too drunk to ever sing about it, plus they'd have to put down their ale to do it.

>>plus they'd have to put down their ale to do it.

not necessarily...

as seen in the feastery in Marachek's Oak ... "Taffei raises her mug and sloshes ale everywhere as she uses it to keep the beat." I was singin at the time.

And at the end of me song... "Taffei bounces and dances around in a circle, sloshing ale as she goes."

But then again... would a dwarf be able ta stand all that sloshin?

I guess yer right. *snicker* A dwarf would have ta put their ale down ta do it.

Tontawrshorty McDunic was the Dwarf contestant and we had to shake him a few times to get his attention but once he got started his performance was humorous and entertaining.

Subject  Olvi Stats and TDP info (610)
What I'm gonna do is list the racial stats for those Olvi that don't know what they are. THEN, what I'm gonna do is use the equations I have for figuring up TDP costs and show you where you can place each stat without ever spending more than 100 TDPs to train said stat. That make sense? Sure hope so.

 ~~ Racial Stats ~~

   Str +2
   Ref -1
  Agil -2
   Chr .0
   Dis +1
   Wis +1
   Int .0
   Sta -1

     A negative number means that it costs _less_ to raise this ability with training, while a positive one means that it is more difficult to gain further attributes in that area. In other words, a -2 means it's very easy and takes less time (fewer TDPs) to train in that attribute. A +2 means that it's very difficult for that race to train in that attribute.

 ~~ TDP Figures ~~

   Str - 25
   Ref - 41
  Agil - 51
   Chr - 34
   Dis - 29
   Wis - 29
   Int - 34
   Sta - 41

     Now what the TDP stuff means is this. Say you wanna go from 20 to 21 in a stat. Then it'll cost you say 89 TDPs to move up. But each of the numbers I have listed above will take you to that level of training without EVER spending more than 100 TDPs to move up once notch.

                     Zelaide
                          Was inputtin' this all into my computer from my notebook and thought I'd share. Read the other race folders for the same info on each race if yer interested.

Oh, so the higher a single stat is the more TDP's it costs to train it? Does the guildleader give you more TDP's as you get higher? Cause I rarely get enough to train more than one stat when I level. What happens at say... 20th?

P.s. Where do you get cloudberry tarts???!!??

Subject  Re: Olvi Stats and TDP info (613)
As I understand it (and I usually don't -grin)

TDP cost of raising a stat is determined by muliplying your current rank by your racial cost.

Your racial cost is found on that chart with all the +'s and -'s on it. If it's a 0 then the cost is 3 TDPs per rank, and each number either side of 0 adds or subtracts 0.5 TDPs. (The 0.5 will be rounded off of the total since we can't spend half a TDP)

Therefore, (for example) since a halfling has a -2 for Agility, the racial cost will be 2, because 3-(0.5x2)=2

And the racial cost of discipline (it is a +1 for us) would be 3.5 because 3+(0.5x1)=3.5

Each time you buy a rank for a particular stat you can now multiply the racial cost by the rank you are at. Say I have 7 in Agility. I would multiply the racial cost for agility (2, see above) times the 7 ranks I have. 2x7=14. My next rank of agility will cost 14 TDPs.

Taffei ~ Holy Tarts! I have a splittin headache now! Hope this helps.

At 20th circle you get 100 plus your circle in TDPs... YOu also get a tdp for every 200 ranks in a skill group.

Taffei looks up at all those numbers.

Taffei's knees begin to wobble as she feels a bit faint.

Taffei falls over. She is stunned!

Keeping her eyes away from the numbers, Taffei shakes off a bit of the stun and begins to crawl slowly away.

BTW: Anybody in Arthe Dale? I been here fer a week and haven't seen hide ner hair of Hanala or Caltrop or Myyk. Met a few other interesting folks though:)

Hi Taffei (and everyone),

Mykk is coming off exploring Dunshade and then judging the drinking song contest in Shard, but was last seen enjoying the springtime in Arthe.

Mykk should be around the Village for the next few weeks actually, so don't leave without saying Hi! Check the Inn, his knoll, or he's easily gwethable! If I know I'll be at the Inn for a block of time, I'll post again.

Hope everyone is enjoying Labor Day weekend :-)

Oh, woe is me! Esuin has increased my studies beyond measure! He feels after such a long stint in the guild, I should have advanced at least once by now and it must somehow be all the sudden outside influnence that has prevented it. I would reckon a guess that he will soon be letting me out though, once he discovers where all the red wine is going! ;-) First on my list is a visit to Arthe Dale, I must tell the wonderful Mykk that I did keep up with my assignment!

But first... (Taffei applauds Shaunn) Congrats!

(Taffei gazes upon Shaunn in awe.)

And second... I met a new friend a couple of nights ago and showed her around Arthe Dale. We had a ball. If you guys see Taelina say "Hi!" to her!

After our meeting, it occured to me that Sablina's map of Arthe Dale needed an update. So it's done! It even includes the village green ...and can be found at :

Yep, I met Taelina myself two nights ago, while downing a few drinks in the Arthe Hollow Inn (with two very nice female Gnomes, Anliis and Elsbette)! She gets Mykk's seal of approval ::pounds stamp on the certificate::

I was talking with Shaunn in the Inn last night (anyone see a pattern here? heh), and we talked about a few Olvi Empaths out there. Quite an impressive Olvi Empath team really:

Shaunn, Martee, Melindrha, Razzleberrie, Xandesa, Galinthas, Mingold, Goodlie.

Taffei, I went to your site. On my computer/screen anyway, I couldn't really read the map names. Like "Arthe Dale" is in red on a red background. Even the blue I could barely make out. And you're still missing a few areas <g>. Not sure I want to give away Mykk's favorite skinny-dipping spot, but... it's there. In fact, to make it interesting, I'll give a plat to the first Olvi who can point out the six "rooms" missing that I'm thinking of :-)

--aka Mykk

ps. Hope to be around Arthe again tonight, but then I'll (probably) be out of town again until Monday. Don't burn the village down while I'm gone. But do party.

(Taffei blushes a bright red.)

Thanks for the heads up, Mykk. I had no idea my web site was so messed up. The red background should now be gone. I had found a new "toy" and was tryin ta do somethin' fancy. (blush) I went back to something a little more conducive to actually reading the content. If anyone has a problem with it, please let me know.

As for the undiscovered rooms... hmmm... looks like more explorin' be in order. Right up my alley!

Taffei checks her backpack for explorin' supplies.

Beer... tart... ale... tart... wine... tart...

Yep, I be ready!

Taffei scurries off with a look of purpose on her face.

Yea for Taffei ;-)

I've got a platinum kronar and a Glythtide's Favor with your name on them, you still going to be around Arthe next few nights? Seems life conspired to take away my weekend plans :-(

Pier, pond, slide, plus 3 rooms in lower-class knoll housing, and also you can climb the tree in the Village Green. So actually that was 7. I'll check your site again in a couple days, I should also mention I'm viewing it in IE.

I also belive the GMs hee hee.

It all comes down to the person who may or not be a higher circle than Dritzfury has no inkling to want the attention so it is best that people belive that Dritz is the highest. First of all he enjoys it. (been there, done that for a few years...it got old) Second, noone bugs anyone but him... no more constant familiars coming to ask things, noone challenging ya just to say they tried... noone sending out constant locates just to see whats up and what ya doing, no invites to weddings just because they want ya there fer a status symbol. Thirdly, blowing your own horn all the time and patting yourself on the back only gets you sore lips and a hurt arm. (Hey, I have chicks to kiss and hug, unlike Soim who has nufin but herself!)

Its sooo funny.....the differance being percieved as not number one vs. being percieved as number one.

On another note I belive I have always been 4 circles above Burlock....evan when we was lil' baby rangers. Other than that my circle is over 50th less than 90th.

Subject  New beta website (661)
Greetings,

Was checking out the new beta website for DR, and of course peeked at anything Olvi-related. While this folder isn't the place for beta website feedback, I thought I'd throw some observations out for possible discussion.

Race Pictures: We've got 2 great race pictures, imo. I remember some discussion they were wearing footwear; looks to me like a form of stockings that still leaves the feet open on the sides and bottom.

Description: Seems right on, except for the following quote, which I find slightly off: "What they lack in strength and stamina they make up for in physical agility." Given our bonus to stamina, I'd hardly say we're lacking :-)

Guild breakdown:
 Thieves 60% (who knew? heh)
 Rangers 13%
 Warrior Mages 10% (I'm a little surprised)
 Empaths 6% (as mouthy, err, vocal, as they are, i figured more)
 Moon Mages 3% (if they say so)
 Bard 3% (figured higher)
 Traders 3%
 Clerics <1% (huh. quality over quantity i guess)
 Barbs <1%
 Paladins <1% (go Eadain)

Geography: I've heard some concerns about the new maps already. Are these official? I imagined Arthe Dale with more rolling hills and woods; they're showing us in a forest backed into a mountain side. And that with a good wind, the Dwarves could spit from Stone Clan and hit the Arthe Hollow Inn ;-) I always did kinda view Stone Clan as our defacto protectors/allies; their location on this new map would suggest this even more. Something else I found more pronounced, and which I kind of like, is our access to the eastern oceans. It's something I noticed from the old maps, and incorporated into my rp from time to time. I know our race has some naval personages in it. It also would increase our position of self-sufficiency, as now we have agriculture AND the potential for our own port. Kind of a backdoor should the Crossing Harbor be inassessable for whatever reason. Or should the aforementioned 60% have any trading, business, travelling etc. to do that they wouldn't want observed ;-)

"Indigenous Creatures: crypt fiend and rock troll". Crypt fiend is debatable imo. If you're going to include the northeast wilds, might as well include wood trolls etc. Still, I'd associate them with Crossing. Rock trolls are just plain Kaerna (which lists as it's indigenous creatures as "none", and I'll actually use the "bug" link on the website to note it.

"Some famous Halflings in history: Towin Sweetbreath, Paeldryth, Ka'len the Sea Drake, Daffleberry Tanglefoot." Any historians out there want to give us a lesson on who these people are?

"Did you know? Most Halflings prefer to go by the Gamgweth term for their race: Olvi." Yep <g>

Subject  Olvi History Lesson (663)
First what I have at me fingertips:

Ka'len the Sea Drake. According to the book "Human Histories" :

Ka'len -- called the Sea Drake -- was the master of the Dolefaren, a great ship of war. Ka'len himself was a spunky Halfling with a massive mop of black hair and one eye lost from past battles. Dolefaren has been identified over time to be an Old Gamgweth word for 'Victory'.

Ka'len was active in the Resistance Wars, when the Seven Star Empire was just beginning to fall. A master of ambush on the sea, Ka'len both boarded and rammed ships, although it is said he used that last only when the first was not possible (some say out of pity for the enemy, some say because an intact ship is worth more than a sinking one, I am partial to believe it was both). Ka'len was called a pirate and a friend by Lanival in the early wars.

As Lanival's right hand maritime warlord, Ka'len supported the great wizard in his tireless work to split the Empire into the five Realms. Ka'len ultimately met his end in the straits of the Segoltha Sea, narrowed in by five enemy Elven warcraft. Although he carried two of the ships with him, he and the Dolefaren sunk in the icy sea, forever lost, to Lanival's sorrow.

And according to the latest official timeline:
 "232 BL --Ka'len dies in an ambush "

I'm sure everyone has noticed when they check the time (I know, why should Olvi care what time it is, unless they be waitin fer the bar ta open ~ heh) one of the realms time periods is named after this great halfling.

"You were born on the 24th day of the 2nd month of Ka'len the Sea Drake in the year of the Silver Unicorn"
==========

As for Daffleberry Tanglefoot... is he/she related to the Arthe Dale Tanglefoots?

I KNOW I have heard the name Sweetbreath somewhere... gona dig fer that bit of info.

But I must admit, Paeldryth is a new name to me. Anyone else have any info?

>But I must admit, Paeldryth is a new name to me. Anyone else have any info?

Gauthus says, "The Paeldryth's Wrath spell channels the unseen currents of air into a blast directed at your opponent. The spell will throw your opponent out of melee with you, and possibly damage your enemy, depending on the power and accuracy of the attack.

Many mages believe that the spirit of Paeldryth watches those who use his spell, and will aid those in dire straits. It can be targetted."

They missed a couple of notable Olvi too:

Deeder Jonathan, halfling alchemist, seer and moon mage

Thistle Walksweaving, one of the four who hunted the Blackfire Cabal

And don't forget the book publisher Balint Broadspan. From "A Brief History of Alchemy":

* Balint Broadspan. Halfling book publisher renowned for his cheap editions, marketing abilities, and summaries of complicated texts. At some time in his middle years Broadspan received a state contract to collate and publish a new series of magical texts for Asemath Academy. He developed a personal interest in these, and soon progressed from publisher to dedicated alchemist.

Broadspan's personal contribution to alchemy was slim but telling. One volume in his Asemath series focused upon a debate over the resource consumption of 3 creature types (living, metallic constructs, elemental beings). "Why use up resources to create something permanent when you only want to kill temporarily?" Broadspan wrote in a brief forward. "Why not just fake it like I do when I toss a magical but fictitious wet rag down some snobbish Elothian's back?" This single remark sparked a new debate on the subject of magical glamouri, and ultimately led to the development of illusory creatures.

Another notable Olvi from history would be Borrugar Steadfoot.

You can read about him in "Profiles in Magic, Volume Eight". I've included a short bit of it below:

"This installment of our ongoing series details the life and times of Borrugar Steadfoot, the Merchant Magician. It is hoped that the story of his triumphs and untimely death serve as a guide and warning to young mages, as they face their own challenges in apprenticeship.

"Bourrugar Steadfoot, while not as well known as some of his contemporaries in the turbulant decades just after the fall of the Empire, was nonetheless a luminary of the magical world. Known as "the merchant magician", Steadfoot was an unusually shrewd and calculating olvi, concealing his brilliant strategic mind behind a cheerful and sometimes frivolous demeanor: more than one trader-baron found himself utterly cleaned out in a deal with him, after being tricked into underestimating the bubbly halfling."

Another snippet:

"The key to his undoing was an ongoing obsession with a grimoire of pre-Imperial sorcery, the infernal tome known to scholars as the "Arte of the Black Cockatrice"."

The information in the book was later used in the creating of the Y'Shai.

Paeldryth was not a Halfling, he was a Human. However he helped the people of Riverhaven who sent a Halfling boy to Paeldryth, to ask him for his help.

I also noticed something else kinda interesting. I read a book in Crossing Library called The Sea Drake. The Sea Drake was a historic Halfling named Ka'len (can't recall the last name).

And I wanted to mention that Sallador the head cheese of the pirates owns a ship named the Sea Drake. Isn't this lil Shark Clan sort of biased to anyone other than Humans. Then why have a ship named after a famous Halfling? Could this be a clue to something?

Who knows!

So they made a mistake and lumped a human in with the Halflings. They put us at the bottom of the food chain. <grumbles something unprintable> They're only humans working at Simutronics so we have to be patient with them.

look at it this way, at least simu didn't complete eliminate us from history cause they don't like our race like they did to the thieves guild. Kinda hard to omit a huge chunk of history, but I guess the best way to get rid of a guild without too much player whining is to point at history and say there are no claims of it ever existing.

This thread went downhill in a hurry.

Here's an idea. Gnome grumblings could go back in the Gnome folder. Rascalt's ongoing spewing of bitterness could go in Talk to Simutronics, or in this particular case, Elanthian History. And Cadaya's eternal battle with Rascalt could go into Conflicts.

And let the Halfling folder get back to some of the best tidbits of Olvi trivia and history I've heard in a long time.

Get a grip ladies and gents, I expect better from those I call friends.

PS. I was commending Rascalt on his humor. I genuinely found his post to be funny. I'm not sure how that qualifies as a battle, but lest there be any misconceptions -- I don't have any problems with Rascalt or any other player of DR. You're free to think I'm out to get some people or that I'm holding grudges, but that's really pure nonsense. Really, I don't have the *time* to "eternally battle" any players; most of my free time goes toward a job with little pay except the satisfaction of seeing happy players.

All that said, I have somewhat of a liking for history, and I was rather enjoying the conversation, so please do get back to it. Sans not-so-subtle jabs at GMs we don't like, please. :)

Did you know...???

According to the official timeline: Durring the reign of the 16th (and last) Olvi Emperor of the Seven Star Empire, Cambedika, half the elven delegation was assasinated, and within 3 years people started abandoning Throne City. There were only two more emperors before the resistance wars began involving Lanival.

Has anyone read or heard anything else about this famous olvi?

I've long since RP'd my self as a member of the Olvi Army. I think it's about time we officaly had one. Any one interested? Requirements are under 4' tall, furry bare feet, lust for battle or millitary life.

Was thinking every so often we could assemble our ranks and invade a hunting ground or somthing. I for one would get a kick out of seeing 50 halflings decend into trolls storm it and kill every last one. Getting to see the confused look on some togs face as 10 halfling jump into his room and smite the evils and boldly march on before he can say "huh?", priceless.

Subject  Question for Cadaya... (689)
*In the final years, one great House took the Throne in its due course, but when the time had come to pass on the scepter, it refused and, with the collusion of two other houses, deemed the rest unworthy to hold the Throne. This resulted in the Kin Strife that lasted for nearly 50 years as the massive Empire slowly tore itself apart....

* from the book "Empire of the Seven Pointed Star"

Then, according to the official timeline: The Emperor Duniver, an Olvi, was in power when the Kin Strife period began in 280 BL.

Also in the timeline: about 30 years after Duniver's rule the Mad Elf refused to give up his crown.

Does this mean an Olvi brought down the Seven Star Empire? Or is the author's timing a bit off in the book?

The book "Empire of the Seven Pointed Star" says the unruly ruler CAUSED the Kin Strife.

But the timeline says the Kin Strife began 30 years BEFORE the Mad elf refused to give up his throne.

So which came first?

Halfling Fanatic,

I'm always up for hunting with my fellow Olvi! I think the problem you will find with gathering an army will be, as others mentioned, skill level. I've made inquiries in the past to forming a counter-invasion battle group; we just don't have the firepower.

I dare say our most lethal fighters would be the higher level Thieves. I don't see them joining the "regulars", but I could see themselves forming an Olvi Thieves group.

I've also proposed to several Olvi a ranged weapons group. During an invasion, the group leader would move into the occupied zone, everyone in the group fires, then the leader backs out. Reload and repeat. Problem again is every time I've tried to fire my crossbow at an invasion critter by running in and firing, I miss. I still think an Olvi crossbow unit has potential though! (Including other bowmen, I just think the crossbow idea is cool.) Can you imagine Hegemonic telling the Dwarven troops, Hold 'em men! An Olvi crossbow unit 10 strong is approaching our enemy from the rear!

The most Olvi I've hunted with at one time was a group of 4: Prala, Griffina, Fizzia, and Mykk. And yes, it was a VERY good time.

If you should get an army put together, Mr. Halfling Fanatic with no name <g>, I'd be happy to assist. On a hunting mission, I personally can take latamis and gargoyles solo. In an invasion, I'd be more likely to help in a support role (communications, J&K), and I'm pretty sure I could recruit some empaths and clerics. Never had luck finding an Olvi moon mage who'd be willing to join an invasion support team who could gate though.

Also, I wanna hear some more history of famous historical Halflings. Let's keep the history lessons going. Anyone have another we haven't talked about, or something to add about one we have?

Starting the afternoon of Monday 10/8, Olvi might find it advantageous to visit Arthe Dale through out the week. Working on substances has prevented me from doing everything I wanted to do for Halflings but I think you will be pleased with what you find or discover this week. I still have a few projects in the works for us, so I haven't abandoned you.

Fizzia's player and myself are wrapping up a fun weekend that included going to King Richard's Faire in Mass. I still have a 6 hour drive in front of me, but soon as I get home I'll be wandering Mykk around Arthe!

Have fun everyone,

Race week is off to a roaring start with Olvi day! (and some other race day too...)

In Arthe Dale you will find a mini festival in the Berry Knolls area, where Bungles has set up and invited a few friends to sell their wares.

Changes to smoke images are news too, with Olvi able to pick which image to exhale instead of random images. Use exhale help or exhale list to see the list of shape available to you. (syntax is exhale line <shape name>, and you must type the full shape name) If you don't see a list then you aren't an Olvi.

There will be some other Olvi related items coming out soon, so keep your eyes open.

One more post before I hit the road <g>. I popped ingame and lo and behold, bumped into Mingold, Taffei, Taelina, and Fial! I really need to run, but thought I'd post what I've found out so far:

All Olvi should try EXHALE HELP. We have new smoke shapes. Contest winners might have access to their's only, might be guild-related, might be holiday-related, and we might be able to teach each other. Who knows? Other races even? Lots to find out!

Bungles has opened his house to the populace. There is a gate in Berry Knolls. Follow the trail of people <g>. It's kind of on the northwestern corner.

Bungles had freckles? Could be just Bungles, but I have my theories...

Gotta go, have fun everyone--buy lots of footbrushes!

I have a very young Halfling, and I really thought the wares were outstanding! Everything was just so diverse and some new things...

I drooled over the cleric items....and the cam items.

I am curious if the merchants will stay all week? I would like an orb but I need to be frugal with my money as well....lots of merchants to come I am assuming!

but I loved the stuff....my little halfling is dressing in style...wish I could afford leathers and the cam orb....the tart pouches are soooo cute too.

great job

<<Hope everyone is enjoying the mini-fest!
 GM Morzy>>

I'm enjoying it a LOT, Morzy. There's sooo much to like, but of course some of those knickers are phenominal, and just even having an "Olvi" armor is awesome. Then to get all the amazing choices for the armor, I pretty much want to buy them all. The color and pattern combinations on all the clothing. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say (for now, i'll brown-nose more later, heh) I'm very impressed.

The new smoking enhancement I'm guessing was Fial's doing--nice nice nice. Some of the new shapes are oddly morbid (especially for otherwise cheerful Olvi), and I'm not sure our Dwarven friends will appreciate the fleas though.

Having the armor say Olvi and not "halfling" was a nice touch. There is a "knickers-verb" about rocking back and forth on our heels with our thumbs tucked in our pockets or something like that. I could see the suspenders having a similar verb, even if that was it's only verb.

Love it, thanks guys,

--aka Mykk

ps. I'm sure the Realms would love October to end with a BIG festival, but after this "mini" fest, I won't have any money left!

I like the new smoking system, but it's got a minor bug. If you mistype, or get syntax wrong or whatever and the Usage message pops up, it treats it as though you exhaled, even though there was no messaging.

 >inhale cig
 You inhale the smoke from your burning cigarillo deeply.
 >
 a thin Purple Lion cigarillo flutters slightly.
 a thin Purple Lion cigarillo flutters slightly.
 >exhale oopsie!
 Usage: EXHALE or

 Usage: EXHALE (<player>|<creature>)

 Available smoke images for halflings:
 (usage: exhale line <shape name>)
  deer dragon rabbit pixie
  kitten troll horse paladin
  whip cloak stump fleas
  daisies unicorn rams bandit
  ship grave fish
 >exhale line pixie
 You need to have inhaled some smoke to do that!

Also, these cigarillos can't be smoked like pipes and cigars.

 >smoke cig
 You can't smoke that.

I'll look in to the oopsie part, that has been around for a while, and I didn't get around to fixing it this time. This is a minor update to the smoking system, not the one I talked about earlier.

I'll look at the smoke cigarillo too.

When I get the new smoke shapes in you will be able to learn and teach them to other Olvi and teach simple ones to other races as well. Some of the current ones will be the base for more complex images. Like the tombstone, you will be able to place it on some things or dead critters or players, and write their name on it in smoke. Though that is just an example.

Winners of the image contest can exhale their shapes, though in a simple form. When it comes time, they will have more complex versions and be able to teach them to other Olvi.

All the shapes were existing random ones, except for the ship, fish and grave. I added those at the last minute, so the dwarf one was existing already. Images like that present the Olvi point of view of the world and humor is a part of that. And you have the choice now of which shapes you use and don't use. The grave is morbid, yes, but can be used in humorous ways too. That is why it is there.

There are more things that will be coming out for Olvi in the next few months, the first of which, today the elderly halfling, Wooley Tanglefoot has returned to Arthe Dale, and has <censored> him. Other Halfling communities are not forgotten, so things will be happening in those places as well.

Well I ramble on too much, but I'll keep you updated.

I don't plan on portraying Halfling's hairy feet -- if you're wearing boots, which some Halflings choose to do, you can't see the feet. And to be honest, it takes *time* to see what you're all wearing, which will slow down the system a bit too much for me to want to go there.

Subject  Mounts for smaller races? (751)
Just a small idea that popped into my head... Since I'm sure many of us Olvi might want a mount of some kind, and many of us wouldn't want to settle for a pony... I had a discussion with a few friends of the smaller races. Couple of different ideas stumbled into our heads, smaller mounts would be incapable of combat, but much faster and/or agile... things like elk, ostriches (or any other large flightless birds), crocs, wolves, donkeys, and even the possibility of smaller races hopping on the shoulders of larger ones (if allowed of course) were mentioned. I thought I'd ask the short community at large what they thought, for a few ideas that I'm sure the GM's could either use (or get a good laugh at), and see where it went.

[The Crossing, Northeast Customs] Here stands the Northeast Gate, a rather simple affair of pointed logs topped with iron barbs set into the earthen framework of the town walls. Although there is a fair amount of traffic here, the Customs Officers seem rather bored, probably because the Northeastern segment of the Eastern Tier offers very little in the way of commerce, hence few taxes, hence even fewer bribes. You also see a winding trail.

Sounds good, but the system as it's implemented requires lots of training that doesn't seem likely to cross over between mounts. For example, do you think that learning to ride a horse is just the same as riding an ostrich (e.g. basic riding lessons)? Would the process of a Ranger training a crocodile to tolerate magic being cast by its rider be the same as how he trains a horse? Those are your extreme examples. Look at donkeys. Have you ever heard of a donkey being ridden into combat or jousting? They make good pack animals, but they're too stubborn to be reliable in heated situations

I'm thoroughly amused by the prospect of riding an ostrich (Joust still is one of my favorite old-school arcade games), but speaking IC, I don't see how it could work.

Man, I loved Joust.

I like Taffei's dog <g>. How big are la'tamis? They could be fun to ride into battle. Blood wolves?

Also agree with Zaphod, not sure how much the system allows for different characteristics for different rides. All sounds interesting though.

I wouldn't think known critters could be so domesticated we would be able to ride them.

I would think that we could how ever domesticate say

a tart foraging large brown bear for the rangerly types

a tart packing burrow for the clerical types

a tart sniffing half-grown yak for the trader types

course the tin cans get the ponys with the bulging tart filled saddle bags(imagines a pony nestled with full plate armor) ::cackles::

still trying to think up the rest of the guilds but I'll get back to you

large dog and dog type breed would have to be for gnomes we are just a bit to big for dogs

Life has kept me away from DR for the last couple of weeks, but up until then I was having decent luck finding Olvi at the Crossing bank, then grabbing them and going to the Half Pint or Arthe Hollow. Sometimes at the Arthe Hollow they'll stick their heads in to see if anyone is there :-)

Subject  Clerics of Glythtide (764)
The group of players running the Glythtide Faire next Saturday, Nov 3rd (this includes at least 3 Orders plus myself) are looking for some Clerics of Glythtide to help with the Opening and/or Closing ceremonies.

I've already roped in Taffei, so now I'm looking for Hanala!

If anyone has any information on Hanala's whereabouts, or knows another Cleric of Glythtide who might be available next weekend, please contact me, earlier the better.

I'm here, I'm here! I've been buried under scrolls and paperwork! Err... ::she suddenly notices the mug and quickly tries to hide it behind her back:: ... scrolls and paperwork, that's right. But did I hear my presence was requested? I'd be honored to honor Glythtide, tis my life's duty! That and to drink my fill of his favor.

Twice now! <g> Thanks though!

Ended up with a tentative team of Taffei, Hanala, and Starsha. Not bad for one day's work. And a pretty darn good team too if I do say so myself. I hope they can work with Zazu of the Tavern Troupe to pull off something fun :-)

No details, just shocked I read all the boards and didn't see any mention it. But according to fellow Olvi Eadain and Melindrha, I have confirmation that it is in fact open now (not just to WM).

I bet they're plump and oozie and gooey and purple....yeah purple...when ripe of course...when not ripe they're an ugly green....with yellow spots. And the bush itself has to be kinda low to the ground ya know, so Olvi wouldn't have to use a ladder or a stool to do pickings.

Hey that reminds me! Razzie is that how you get yer purple toenail polish? Anyways I realize I am no help whatsoever to you Mykk, but I couldn't resist. G'luck hopefully someone knows the truth.
