Tailtiu's Muse
Intro:
@x58Tailtiu has hidden a powerful runestone amongst the corps in a secrect 
@x58Location. Only the greatest bard in all the land could convince her to
@x58Disclose this location and capture this powerful stone for themselves.
@x58Will you be the greatest bard in all the land?
Lore:
In ancient times the Bards were the keepers of tradition, of the memory
of the tribe - they were the custodians of the sacredness of the Word.
Although they probably represented the first level of training for an
apprentice Druid, we should not make the mistake of thinking that a Bard
was somehow in a lowly or inferior position. There were many levels of
accomplishment, but the most skilled of Bards were held in high esteem
and partook of many of the functions of both the Ovate and the Druid.
Rules and How to play?
@x58For a chance to become the greatest bard in the land enter a short
@x58Story, poem or song by note to Druid. Start date Wednesday 25th of July
@x58To Wednesday 1st of August Midnight EST. Winners to be announced 2nd of August 
Prizes:
First Place: @x58 3 trivia point tokens + @x249/@x242|@x249\ @x214Car@x208ne@x136li@x208an @x136Ru@x208nest@x216on@x208e @x249/@x242|@x249\

50 Question MegaTrivia Saturday!
Note #7

Friday, May 4, 2018 @ 07:10
Come one, come all! It's been a couple of years, but I have returned (albeit
under a different name) with MegaTrivia!

What is MegaTrivia, you ask? It's a trivia game where EVERYONE (yes, even you!)
gets a fair chance at answering questions in several categories, ranging from
easy to hard.

How does everyone get a fair chance, you ask? Unlike most trivia games where
the fastest typer gets the point, no one is allowed to answer on the Gametalk
channel for 10 seconds. Anyone answering on the channel within those 10 seconds
will forfeit their point for that round.

However! (yes, there's a however!), those who DO know the answer and are fast
typers can send me a tell within those first 10 seconds with their answer. This
forfeits their option to answer on Gametalk, and they are not notified if their
answer is correct or not. Why? Two reasons. I don't have the time to respond to
the tell, and it prevents them from giving away the answer to friends/clannies.

Also, all questions have a 30 second time limit from the time answers are
allowed on Gametalk. At 15 seconds, hints with possible answers will be given.
There are some multiple choice questions that will require options to be shown
after the question, so I will take care of that manually.

Sounds cool, right? What about prizes? I'm so glad you asked! The prizes are
subject to change upon Imm approval, but here's a breakdown:

First place: 3 trivia points (or 15,000,000 gold)
Second place: 2 trivia points (or 10,000,000 gold)
Third place: 1 trivia point (or 5,000,000 gold)
Everyone else who earned at least 1 point: 100,000 gold per point

Yes, there are participation prizes. Again, EVERYONE wins!

Okay, but... when is it? Oh! That's right, it helps if I give you a time and
date!

MegaTrivia will be held 6:00 pm MUD Time  on Saturday, May 5th.

So, bring your thinking caps, and prepare to answer 50 questions!

Hey peeps,
periodically thoughout the day tomorrow, at work while
I have time and then when I get home after 5p system
time I plan on asking a buncha trivia questions.
The subject is sort of misleading, as it's just called
4/20 trivia, the topics will be varied and plentiful.
Still undecided if I am going to award like
50k or 100k per question or keep a running tally
and away a few mil to the winners. Preferences?
Feel free to respond to this note or in personal
forum with that answer, and any suggested topics you
would like to see questions pertaining to.
Notice I say suggested, because if i can't come up
with questions on the subject, that's all it'd be. :)
So celebrate 4/20 with me by answering some questions! :)
On gametalk, may even start tonight... *winks*

Congratulations to Shavrendil for winning the EQ Creation Contest!
The winning item was:
 
Entry #4 by Shavrendil (solidify/illuminate)
Level: 200 Worn: neck Flags: invis hum burn-proof
Str: 5 Int: 0 Wis: 0 Dex: 5 Con: 5 Luck: 0
HR: 0 DR: 14 HP: 75 Mana: 0 Moves: -150
 
The next stage of this contest is naming the eq piece!
 
This contest is to set the short description for the item, that is the name
that appears when the item is worn or in your inventory. The short description
may only be 50 characters in length including color codes.
 
Please keep in mind the wear location of the winning item. A necklace worn on
the legs would be rather silly. Also keep in mind that we are Amazon so
jungle or tribal themed names are encouraged, but not required.
 
You may also decide what material this eq is made of. A list of valid materials
can be found by typing 'materials all'. Note: This is a big list. If you decide
not to pick a material then I will select one based on the name of the item in
the event your item name wins the contest.
 
You may suggest up to 2 keywords to use on this item but your keyword
suggestion may be ignored. The keywords and long description for this item will
be set by me. Keywords, short description and long description are subject to
the rules defined in help cm-eq-info.
 
The rewards for this contest will be:
 
    First Place: a Trivia Point Token
    Second Place: 2 Million Gold
    Third Place: 500,000 Gold
 
To enter this contest, write a note on games board to all using the subject
line 'EQ Name Entry'. Please include the following information:
 
    Material type of the item (Optional)
    Suggested keywords to use (Optional)
    Short description with colors
    Short description with color codes escaped (Double up the @@s)
 
Unfortunately, due to an oversight on my part, the winners of these 2 contests
will not have their names added as a keyword. Instead, I will make sure that
you receive recognition by having your name permanently attached to the item.

There is a pretty massive error in the original note. Extra points cannot be
used on public clan equipment (thanks Redryn for pointing this out).
Below is the updated contest rules:
 
EQ Creation Contest!
Amazon has one available slot for a piece of public clan equipment! Help us
fill the slot and WIN!
 
There are two separate contests for this! The first is creating the actual eq.
The naming contest will be based upon the wear slot of the winning piece and
will also determine the material of the eq to be added.
Entries will be voted on by the mud, the piece with the most votes will win!
 
In order to create this EQ piece use this URL: http://tinyurl.com/6fg7po
This is not optional.
 
Choose the equipment type. This must be ARMOR. Clan is amazon.
All VNUMs should be 0. Name should be 'nothing'. Short and long descriptions
should be 'nothing'. Material should be none.
 
Pick a wear location. EQ that can be worn in two locations: ear, neck, wrists
or finger will have lower points totals than a single eq slot (See helps).
 
Pick a level. You may want to choose one of the following levels: 1, 41, 71,
91, 131, 151, 171 or 200. You must choose the appropriate level for the eq
generator to calculate point totals for your piece of EQ. Minimum level is 1,
maximum level is 201.
 
You MUST choose either Glow or Hum flag if Invis is set. You may ONLY choose
either Glow or Hum if Invis is selected, otherwise choose NEITHER. This will
affect the enchants available on the piece:
 
Invis = Solidify available
Glow = Illuminate unavailable
Hum = Resonate unavailable
 
Only TWO enchantments are available for a public piece of equipment. Exactly
TWO enchantments should be available for this piece of equipment.
Optionally select the burn-proof flag. It will be added anyway.
            DO NOT CHOOSE ANY OTHER FLAGS! THEY WILL BE IGNORED
 
Next set which stats (str/int/wis/dex/con/luck/hr/dr) this piece should have.
 
Negative points apply! You can put 1 negative point for .5 points. Example:
-150 Mana = +75 Hitpoints, -2 Strength = +1 Dexterity, etc.
 
For more information read help cm-eq-single, cm-eq-dual, cm-eq-negatives and
cm-eq-extrastat.
 
You MUST NOT have point usages in RED! If the EQ generator shows you RED then
you need to adjust your calculations. Any RED in the calculations will
result in DISQUALIFICATION.
 
Prizes for the EQ creation contest are:
  First place  - (5) a Trivia Point Token
  Second place - 12.5 Million Gold
  Third place  - 5 Million Gold
 
Your name will also be added as one of the item's keywords.
 
To enter, write a note on GAMES board to Kobus.
Use the subject line 'EQ Contest Entry'.
Paste the note given by the eq generator when you click Generate Note
 
Only 1 entry per person will be accepted. Failure to comply with all rules will
result in DISQUALIFICATION.
 
Contest entries will be accepted for 7 days. Be sure to post your entries
within that time. Entries will be voted upon by the mud and the winning entry
will collect the top prize! Tie-breakers will be handled by amazon clan member
votes.
 
Thank you all in advance for your entries! I look forward to seeing all of
your suggested EQ pieces. Happy EQ making!

(2) Any gift will result in a vote for the player.

(3) You can send out multiple gifts to multiple Valentines. But you can
only vote for another player once.

@X162Example: Here are gifts for x, y and z.
x, x and x will all recieve a single vote.
However: You can only vote for x, r and z one time.
You can vote for as many players as you would like.

(5) I will maintain detailed counts of the votes.
All votes must be in by Valentines Day.

(4) I will deliver your gift to your Valentine and keep your identity
secret and I will alert the Valentine that they have recieved a vote.

(6) The player with the most votes will be crowned the 2018
Keeper of Hearts and awarded with the crown below.


Second Event:

@x162This is how the process works.
 
Anonymous gift exchange. Anyone feeling like they
want a Valentine send me a tell. I myself and others have helped
pitch in for Valentines bags. It's a lonely day for some so here's
something to help brighten someones day. I have random Valentine
bags laying around. So send me a tell to participate in the random
Valentines day gift exchange. If you wanna give a gift, cool. If
you want to recieve one.... Awesomesauce.


I hereby volunteer myself to be flooded with Valentines intended on 
distribution. 

Oh boy!

Again the one who recieves the most Valentines
not only will they will be crowned The 2018 Valentine's Keeper of Hearts 
they will also be rewarded with this crown:

Maybe the wording was a bit off..

But the idea for a really cool level 1 item as a reward was kinda cool.

The whole part about the crown and going for females wasn't thought about
I honestly should have made a male and female crown and had just done
mudwide nominations.

I do have males participating. My plan was to change Queen to King in the
case that a male wins.

Am still considering a second crown. I have ran alot of events. Granted
this one is not as popular as the last my heart is kinda in the right
place and I am attempting to do something kinda fun. I wanted to host
a valentines event.. Never done that before. 

I want this to be more of a popularity contest and have random votes
come in and votes encouraged by other players.

In any event any lady that wants a gift I do have sweet valentines
already! :) Not everyone has been opposed to the idea. I could have
probably taken a little more time planning.

Anyways, consider it as like a vote contest for king and queen just
like the style of voting the do for prom. (That was the goal) I wanted
a lucky lady. We all know the King of Hearts is Dexx anyways :P

I was asked to enchant the item before I knew the details of the event. While
I appreciate the idea behind a gift exchange and more fun interaction, I feel
Fiendish is right that this particular theme is a bit off. (If I'm reading in
between the right lines.)

Monday, February 5, 2018 @ 22:59
I am setting up a secret valentines gift exchange!

This is how the process works:

(1) Give me what you would like anonymously given to your Secret Valentine.
If you do not request to send your valentine to a specific player for a vote
then the gift will just be randomly distributed to a female player.

(2) A gift given to a specified valentine will count as a vote. Giving
a random gift will just result in someone who may need a pick me up
recieving a gift.

(3) You can send out multiple gifts to multiple Valentines.

(4) I will deliver your gift to your secret valentine or a valentine
anonymously and apply votes at (1) per gift request. However; 
You can only vote for one player one time.

(5) If you would like to add a secret message for your Valentine I will also 
be creating Valentines cards to go into your gift with personalized messages 
signed -Secret Admirer.

(6) I will then locate your victim, I mean a love and give them 
your anonymous gift.

Lets take a moment to appreciate the female presence on Aardwolf. I would like
female characters to come forward and remain anonymous as well (I will not be
creating a list of females and distributing it. This is just if you would like
to recieve a random gift). All females will be automatically eligible to
recieve gifts, however you have to request to recieve a random gift.
send me a tell or note if you would like to participate in the random exchange.
if you recieve a gift from someone you will know whether it was from YOUR
secret admirer or just a player wanting to make the girls feel special.

This will give an opportunity to make our female players feel appreciated.
Since they are mudders, they probably don't have much in common with the
outside world (Afterall they are mudders) and may need a pick me up
on what can be such a depressing day.

For the signed up ladies I will be seeking sponsors meaning! 
(I am seeking x gifts)

I hereby volunteer myself to be flooded with Valentines intended on 
distribution. 
Oh boy!

I will also ask the girls to respond with tokens of their affection 
to randomly exchange. So the males may recieve gifts too in return. But
this is not a guarentee.

There will also be a prize given to the female who recieves the most Valentines
not only will she will be crowned The 2018 Valentine's Queen of Hearts 
She will also be rewarded with this crown:

What games you find soft? Seems pretty much atleast 2-3 first levels
usually on cashgames are pretty full with "regs" - wondering if games
might be softer tournament-wise (need a lot of patience though)

Pardon the huge delay on this contest! It was a very packed month over here!
 
The results are in, and we received a bunch of articles from two contestants!
Without further ado, here are our contest winners!
 
Taking home 10 TPs, Snooky won the grand prize - which article? We're
not sure!
 
Coming in close in second place was Zoot, who will take home 5 shiny
TPs.
 
Finally, in third place, it's Snooky again! He'll be the lucky owner of 3
newly converted TPs.
 
Each of the winners will receive the usual 10 GaardBucks rewards for each
article submitted (see http://rewards.gaardian.com/ for details), plus an
additional shiny Trivia Point Token per submission.
 
So in total: Snooky will take home 10+3+4 = 17 TPs, and Zoot is the proud
owner of 5+1= 6 TPs. We'll do our best to distribute our prizes in the next
few days.
 
You can find all of the submitted entries over at http://gaardian.com

*************** ATTENTION PLEASE **************
***************************************************
**********Holiday Gift Exchange + Raffle**********

I am hosting a Christmas mystery gift
exchange combined with a gold raffle! 
Everyone is welcome to participate.
In the past these gift exchanges have gone
well, this year I am adding a new rule and perk!

In order to participate in the exchange you must
provide a gift. This gift is documented and taken
and placed in a bag of sorts. This can be anyt?hing
from Gold to Trivia Point Tokens and even
enchanted gear. This can also be a gag gift. 
There is no minimum or maximum price for the gift.
You can enter up to 5x per person. 

Due to the gag gifts ~VS~ Real gifts recieved in
previous years I do not feel the need to limit
gag gifts.
In order to participate it will cost you a total of
2 Million Gold and Your Gift.

What happens to the gold? The gold will be split
4 ways 50/20/10/10 the 10% will go to me for
hosting the gift exchange and taking the time
to document the game and using the numbers in
various ways to make sure the game is random. I
also provide reciepts and ticket numbers. This
number is also your gift exchange number so
please do not share it! In light of my fee I
will be immediately placing 10M of my own coins
into the pot for this. I am also adding in my
own Mystery Gift. So as it stands with
no players the prizes are 5M/3M/1M/1M.

All gifts are also documented and the exchange
will be made on Christmas Eve.

Send me a tell to play! Have your gift ready!

            Good Luck

your entries to gaardian on the Personal forum.

articles to gaardian on the Personal forum, or if you prefer, you can
send us an email to submissions@aardian.com (please include your player

Good day everyone! Well I did a little mini trivia
game this morning although fun there was only a
few people that participated. Sooo I have come up
with 10 prizes (5 quest reset tokens, 9 of Water,
3 of earth, 2/1mill gold and a trivia point token) 
I was hoping to hold the game tonight but time
will just not allow for my full focus. So I will
be holding it on Friday at 11pm. I might come up
with additional prizes by then, if so I will add
them to the list. The game is simple same basics
as normal Trivia except all of the questions will
be math related. Prizes ---> Prior to the game I
will randomly assign a number to each prize once 
someone answers correctly they will select a 
number 1-10 and will be given said prize.
Hopefully I will come up with additional prizes
but even if I can't hopefully we can still have
a bit of fun. I would suggest brushing up on your 
math skills prior to Friday as some of the
questions will be rather hard/tricky. Hope 
everyone enjoys it and if ya don't then :p to you :)

Bananas Game Tomorrow! Free TPs and Gold!
Note #8940
posted on Games
Friday, August 11, 2017 @ 20:20


I will be hosting the second public Bananas to Bananas game on the
gametalk channel at 12:30pm mudtime Saturday August 12!

My aim with the game was to be able to host a game where players have a bit of
fun and where the best scripter and googler won't have any advantage!

If you've ever played Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity then this 
game should come very quickly to you :)

The prizes will be as follows:

    1st) 1 Trivia Point
    2nd) 2 million gold
 Raffle) 1 million gold

I will go over the rules before we start, but the basic gameplay goes 
like this:
1) Before the game starts, you will send me a tell "tell mendaloth deal" 
and you will be sent your initial card deck via a note on the GAMES board 
(example note below).  After that point each time you play a card you'll get
a tell with a replacement card.  You should keep track of your own deck.  I'll
tell you how to get a reminder sent to you, but because of length restrictions
on tells it'll only have the names of the cards.

2) I will chose a random green banana, which is an adjective.  You'll chose 1
from your initial deck of yellow bananas, which are nouns or gerunds. You'll
send me the yellow banana from your hand which you think is a 'best match' for 
the green.  This might sound a little confusing, but I give extra time the
first round for you to figure it all out :)

A quick note about "Best Match":
  It's subjective.  We will have a rotating judge from among the partipants.
  They will pick the top three that they think "match."  And everyone will 
  vote on those 3.  Match may turn out to be anything, maybe even the 
  opposite or something that just made them chuckle :).

Those are the basics, I'll fill in the details as we play.  The first person
to get their card matched *twice* wins!!  The second place prize will likely
just be randomly chosen among all the people with 1 card when the game is
over.

Here is an example deck:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From    : Mendaloth: Your Deck for the Bananas to Bananas game
(1661) Waterfalls - "Don't go chasing waterfalls..." *TLC*

(1295) School Buses - Large, yellow buses used to take children to 
school.

(1527) The Mississippi River - The Algonquin words "Misi sipi" mean 
"big river."  *What's Algonquin for "muddy"?*

(566) Fly Fishing - * ... if you can"t catch flies any OTHER 
way ...*

(723) Herb Gardens - Rosemary, Basil, Chive . . . *is it a herb garden
or the cast from a British drama?*

(1400) Steve Martin - 1945 , American comedian, actor, writer, and 
*"wild and crazy guy."*
 
(1285) Sand - The desert, the dunes, the beach, and in your shoes.


And here is an example note that only the judge will see every round.  As you
can imagine once you have more than 10 partipants, the note will get 
very long :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From    : Mendaloth: The cards played for round #2

Here are all the cards that were played last round.  You have to pick the
top 3 that you think best match the green card from the round.
Send your top choices via a tell like this 'tell mendaloth 12,5,6'
where the numbers correspond to the cards you think are 'best.'
 
The Green card from last round was: 
      Popular - (wellliked, accepted, preferred)


Here are the Yellow Cards the players played: 
(678) Grave Robbers - *Famous for their bodies of work.*

(1163) Porsche Boxster - A twoseat, six cylander roadster  elegant design
and superior drivability.*

(822) Julia Roberts - 1967, American actor and *Pretty Woman*.  Also 
starred in *Steel Magnolias*, *My Best Friend's Wedding*, and 
*Erin Brockovich.*

(1409) Strawberry Shortcake - *Summertime and the eating is easy* ...

(282) Campfire - S'mores and songs.  Gather 'round!

(110) Artists - So creative!

While I've tested the thing quite a few times, I reserve the right to just 
randomly assign the prizes if the system completely fails :)

Hope to see everyone on the gametalk channel!

Best,

Mendaloth
