1-dtn.png

Connie Crete sent the following report to TMN:

Ber!

Here's what did and didn't happen...

Our small mosey were jest askin ta git kilt. Also both Lorikeet and Fiona hates DTN with a purple passion o a thousand blazin suns so dont go when they comes outta politeness.

Got ta DTN1 and cleared it. I raised up Umbutch what that allays makes tha spawn happens. Seems tha fighterhealermystic subclass kin repeatedly raise her.

Then Prae falled causn he's got so lil higgy and healed him up.

3-healin-prae.png

What did happen I dont got pitchers fer. Basic . . . mowed through dtn1 and 2. Got cocky in 3 at tha 3/4 boundary. Departed. Went back fer round 2 and lured more o town. Got ta tha 3/4 boundary agin. Pressed inta 4. Died. Town rescued. Almost kilt town. Bah. Pesky hard ta keel town. Recovered. Played around until time. Came home. I were ultimately foiled in my quest ta depart alla town. Mebbe next time.

I'ma still workin on takin pitchers while fightin and there be sumthn bein said or a live critter in tha shot. Ya gotta suffer through my shaky camera handlin.

Ber!

Ash Mosey(s)

Ber Para,

Our last two moseys was ta Ash. Since tha pepples on tha first mosey wasnt around fer tha second one, nobudy new we went ta tha same place twice inna row. Tha first mosey were jest fer darshak doggies. I tried ta keep healin Manj while Warp rodded and Tas healed him. I thinks we made it through 50 doggies or 2 snells dependin on how ya counts.

2mediumsizedmob.png

Then tha next mosey, had a slightly bigger group and figgured we could attack Ash City. Nippy volunteered ta be tha token ranger. Kyvnn came slummin agin even though his usual new best friends werent around.

3ashcity.png

As were standard we made it ta barrels first ta git tha retreat cleared. Then were ditherin over visitn Fluffy or goin ta houses and boats. Hah! like there's ever any question on visitn Fluffy or not.

4ashtemple.png

I tried ta git a good pitcher o tha temple, but cut off o tha disco horns causn is a big buildin.

5normalretreat.png

We made it inside and started takin tha second floor but had ta retreat. Nippy went through mustabeen 50 chains ta git us back ta town. After clairbreak, we went back causn Garrick and Onashi wasnt on tha chainride home.

6fluffy.png

We got there and visited with Fluffy. She were super excited ta see us. After jumpin up and visitn with everyone, she were tuckered out and tooked a nap.

We came home and a good time were had by all.

Ber!

-Connie

Big Ol Mob

big-ol-mob-1.png

Connie Crete sent to TMN the following report:

Ber Para.

I knows its been a while since tha last report. I gits distracted bashin and dont do so good with tha reportin pitcher takin.

Our mosey tooked us ta tha rainforest. We sumhow ended up with nearbout everybudy (Stora dont git outta town much). While technical, were (not we're fer ya grammarians) strong enough fer bigger things, is more a case o "Where aint we been inna while?". Also, didnt wanna scare Lorikeet too bad (everybudy else has internalized my plans fer keelin alla town - she jest knows innellectually) . First (tha gray pitcher) we did tha pit dive - because no one in their right mind would do a pit dive rather than go tha long way through gloamins. Then, ta keep pepples on their toes, we charged tha yorilla camp.

Tha handy thing about champeens is they gots tha ability ta brick on demand. Xrak came along causn he felt bad that we dont got no token ranger. Honest what does better is more bb'ers causn then less likely ta git bored healers. Is tha conditionin aginst red I think.

We dropped Abox off in tha water ta git home at Clairbreak and perceeded on our way. Tha grand plan were ta git ta Tepui. Thing is, um, I dunno my way around tha RF after tha Tree o Patience. It's all a big ol blur. So anyway, we were workin our way toward Tepui but got distracted by a web place that I honest aint never been. So we saw that and I were sightseein rather'n takin pichers. Then there were a secret (ta no one but me) lil tunnel that I aint never been so were sightseein rather'n takin pitchers. And then we were at Tepui. Had a grand ol time and realized we didnt got no vine ta git out tha south door. So we EPS'd home.

Fer future mobs: tha bigger ya gits tha more likely I'll be keelin ya at book2 or OS (goin tha long way through DP because I dont trust tha "its jest 3 EPS snells" route and ta keel time). These threats is gonna happen spontanious so's no point in plannin. Jest lookout anytime I has 4-5 healers and a big ol op mob. Lil op mobs is jest fer slates and Serra and RF.

Schedulin goes: (7-9 Lori time) Tues: DM/FB mosey - and stays close-ish ta town untl ifn any o DM that shows up at half past wants ta join so not so big or adventurous. Usual small causn ongoin other moseys which be way better, safer and more better larnin fer time spent. Fri: Biggest mosey o tha week fer us causn few concurrent moseys. Sun: small-tiny moseys fer mostly coinin or "where aint we been in tha last 6 git tagithers that nobudy's hunted recent.. ok, Snaggy agin"

*Disclaimer: We is technical an invite only group. But we'll invite anybudy that wants ta come. Big Huge Problem: Ima actively tryin ta keel tha party and cause a depart. Also retreatin be dun mostly when one healer's left standin what happens ta have a chain. This aint fer tha faint o heart. Nor be it fer tha departophobes.

Beer!

-Connie.

Missing Connie on Top of a Bookcase Somewhere--Library Flooded--But Still the Hunts Continue

estuary.png

Tas Furrfoot sent the following report to TMN:

Hi Para,

We've been missing Connie cause she's stuck on top of a bookcase in the library for the last couple of hunts for nearly a week now and her interwebs are all wonky; but, FB and FB/DM hunts continue and been either kidnapped by or kidnapped folks anyhows and we still go out and have some fun.

Last night we took a shot from southern? estuary (entering from savanah/dunes) after Manj and Manqy and I kidnapped Abox and eventually Mork for some fun and falling. Shaky bailed us out a few times, but in all we had some fun and missed Connie so we took a picture to share with her and thought it'd be cool to send ya a report that we're thinking of her and everyone else around that area.

We know Connie's bookshelf is drip dry, but the library around her gots some water she's waiting for it to recede so she can wade out to the nearby store and get more beer 'n and we hopes anyone else flooded or damaged in the library is doing OK. Missing Fiona, hope she's OK - I think we last saw her on Tuesday. Dunno who else, hope they're ok... keeping them in our thoughts.

Our best from Falinea's Blade and Dwarven Militia to all those affected by that nasty library storm.

P.S. Yup, Tas sees a PF, he has to take it. So we pf'd our way through! Huzzah! Unfortunately, we didn't find Mork any dispatches, we kidnapped him late and Tas was having so much fun he almost forgot to take a beer break. *gasp*

P.P.S. Connie from the library is asking after Shiner and Kaitlyn if they're OK too.

Beer 'n Cookies,

-Tas.

Greetings Para,

I am writing to report that Puddleby's bath house is now offering flea killing powder in their baths to combat a certain blue fen's "killer" fleas.

For everyone's safety, I would encourage all who have been near him recently to take a bath with this powder!

Sincerely,

A Super Chicken Retrospective

Ah, Super Chicken. Puddleby's favorite chicken. While your whereabouts today may be uncertain, I figured this would be a fine time for a retrospective of various depictions of you on TMN over the years.

TMN is 15 Years Old!

TMN first went online 15 years ago, in May 2002! Hard to believe it was that long ago.

I'll try to post some special stuff from the extensive TMN archives in the weeks to come. Above is Phineas's winning banner from the TMN Ad Art Contest #2.

Thanks, everyone, for all your help and support over the years.

Breaking a Training Dummy

breaking_a_training_dummmy.png

Bungleyed Grok sent the following report to TMN:

Hello,

We recently assembled a group of Puddleby's most proficient hemorrhaging wound experts to attempt to break one of the training dummies in the Fighter Hall.

mork_shows_chain.png

After applying dozens of wounds and expending our spirit reserves, we were able to accomplish our task. We didn't learn anything from the fight.

cant_work_with_this_creature.png

Puddleby's local taxidermist was in no mood to stuff an already stuffed training dummy, but had enough professionalism to at least be polite about it.

Best,
-Bungleyed Grok
