1:08PM - Marathon

Budha should be kicked out of the bears for partying in the Scythe official marathon party. I never knew anyone could suck that much.

11:07AM - Guest

The other day, Guest/Visitor kept logging in and out. He was obviously trying to annoy someone. And he did. The wizards got pissed! The repeated logging in and out of "guest" spams wizards who are using one of the two very popular wiz tools designed to monitor mortal logins. It also overruns the law logs, which record that information. Of course, the logs are designed to save to LOGIN.old when they get large, so nothing was lost.

If you haven't logged on lately, there is an AA Olympics going over the next several weeks. So, now would be a great time to dust off your old characters.

Here is the tentative schedule.Collapse )

1:51PM - Ancient Anguish Hunting Song

I was looking for something on the board archives when I found a post I made many years ago on the Poetry board. I thought I'd share it again. It a spoof of Tom Lehrer's The Hunting Song. I hope you enjoy!

I always will remember,
'Twas a year ago November,
I went out to hunt some bunny
On a mornin' bright and sunny.
I went and crushed the maximum the game laws would allow,
Two wizards, seven Scythers, and a cow.

I was in no mood to laugh,
I took down my trusty staff
And went out to stalk my prey.
What a haul I made that day.
I put them into my pack, and I consecrated them somehow,
Two wizards, seven Scythers, and a cow.

The law was filled with anger
Took away my player,
The worst punishment I ever endured.
It turned out there was a reason,
Scythers were out of season,
And one of the wizards wasn't insured.

People ask me how I do it,
And I say, "There's nothin' to it,
You just stand there and mill,
And when something moves, you kill!"
And there's ten stuffed heads in chaos vaults right now,
Two wizards, seven Scythers, and a bony-looking black and white splotched

Current mood: silly

7:24AM - My Wife

I am trying to notify my wife's online friends that she recently passed away. She had several characters on ancient anguish. The two I'm sure of were Licentious and Jennifer.

She had a brain aneurysm and I am told she did not suffer.

<****> says: I have one
*~ ZuLeika ~* says: *sniff* I want one
<*****> says: I searched and searched on eBay for months
*~ ZuLeika ~* says: I think AA should market them for cash to help keep the MUD running
<*****> says: seriously
*~ ZuLeika ~* says: I wonder if people would buy them
<*****> says: everybody wants one
*~ ZuLeika ~* says: maybe I should put that on a suggestion board *giggle*

7:57PM - Back after so long...

Well I used to play a long time ago and I am attempting to get back into the swing of things.
I think I started in 94 or 95. I can't remember anymore.
You may remember me as Firesong, Nyara, Moonsong, Orckestra, Shiris, Dawnsfire, Neosgold and a host of others that I've forgotten.
You may remember my brother from then as well, Armand, Gorethrakma (I think I spelled that right) Abbadon, and many many many more. He had to write a list to keep them all straight. And any that want to give a shout-out to him just lemme know and I'll pass the word.
Hopefully you all will be seeing me around as soon as I can get a client that's not the crappy standard that's installed on the comp atm.


Current mood: contemplative

Ancient Anguish Move 2006!

It has been 8 and a half years since Ancient Anguish changed its
location, but that time is upon us now. In early February, 2006,
Ancient Anguish will be pulling up its roots and relocating to Michigan,
USA, to be hosted by LocalLink.net, an ISP in Benton Harbor.
LocalLink is very generous in providing bandwidth for us, which should be
more sustainable in the future.

During the upcoming week, you may find connectivity problems to the
old Ancient Anguish and the new Ancient Anguish as
DNS servers around the world populate with the new addresses and we
get the mud running at the new location.

You should be able to continue connecting to the old Ancient Anguish
until Feb 10th or 11th at port 2222, and our new site will
hopefully be up before the old one goes down. We do not expect to have
any downtime where both sites are unavailable before the final switchover.

1:39PM - I'm Going To Do It..

So, I have decided that I am going to request to come back to AA. Last time I kept e-mailing Malire, but never got an answer back. Even if it was a "hell no" I wouldn't have minded, but to at least know. So, I thought I would email Malire my letter, but I think I would like to send it to a few others, but I am not sure who. I know I was pretty good associates with Pris, but I don't know if emailing Senators would help. However, I don't know if they or Malire is the final say. I also don't want to risk logging on AA just to get my IP blocked.

Any suggestions?

Current mood: curious

10:21PM - Woo!

8:44AM - Woot.

Wouldn't it be hot if AA never came back up?
