Now where are my maps? I saw Hazeii on the WO list, the only
character I remember apart from Chuckles. Unfortunately my old name
is in use. Could any Wiz's check if it is currently active? If not, I

I know that attacking and killing is a source of great
pleasure for many of the younger players on shades. I do
feel, however, that those who have already attained
immortality could be a little kinder to those of us still
struggling to get there. This isn't a moan - I really do think
the danger adds to the excitement and it's good to know that
one is giving pleasure to the yunguns, but a little kindness
wouldn't go amiss. Oh and by the way Slurp, I'm not suggesting
that you are a second...

Slurp? Young? Hahahahaha. Some of the violent and indeed vile
killers on here may indeed be young, depending on your def,
but most are long in the tooth (and grey in the tooth too).
In any event may your star prosper and I hope to see you invis
shortly. Two good sessions at dead of night should do it.

something awful happened today. A small player called out
to me that she was being attacked. I stupidly plowed in
and attacked and killed a gallant. I'm sure there are
rules about this sort of thing and I think I may have
broken them. I am so sorry. I know I will deserve whatever
punishment I receive.
Oh dear. It's all so tricky isn't it.

Dying at gallant is a pinprick, dear boy, the loss of
