To receive a prize, be the first to go to the Trivia Monk on our steps & say the word that answers this question:
“One of Richard Garriott’s programmers (Shadowmaker in UO, now deceased) added Disney characters to Ultima. Garriott ordered them removed & Shadowmaker obeyed -sorta. He left in a shadow outline of Mickey Mouse giving the finger. That artwork was copied from the box game into UO. It’s slightly distorted but still clearly visible. Where is it?”
NELSON MANDELA BECOMES FIRST POLITICIAN TO BE MISSED
– RePrint from TheOnion.com
Following the death of former South African president and civil rights leader Nelson Mandela today at the age of 95, sources confirmed that the revered humanitarian has become the first politician in recorded history to actually be missed.
Today we lost not only an international hero and a symbol of the resilient human spirit, but also the very first political figure ever said political historian Wallace M. Delaney of Columbia University, adding that Mandela will long be remembered for enduring 27 years in prison in the fight against apartheid, championing equality across the globe, and standing alone as the only world leader whose passing left the international community Certainly people have felt a sense of sorrow at the deaths of politicians in s death is the only one on record that people everywhere unanimously agree has left the world ”
Delaney added that he could not predict who might be the second politician to be missed by humanity, but confirmed there were no viable candidates anywhere out there right now.
THE SHADOW MAN
– by Kattasrophe (age 12)
T’was a stormy night in Luna Bank. Friends were speaking of ghosts, when an invisible man named “a shadow” appeared. I said, “Hello!!” No answer and he started to walk away. We followed him then he dissappeared to the roof. Of course, a non-answering person would make us suspicious! We stalked him as he went in different directions. He finally found an escape route and vanished. We were very angry. At one point he had stepped on m y hand. My hand is still cold from that incident.
Talia says, “He was pretty much naked. I saw his undies.”
Vladimer also replied, “I was about to report him for harassment.”
After the shadow left, we checked Luna Bank floors. On one floor, a shield was left behind. A shadow has stolen something from the Secret Vault of Luna!
WHY THAT NAME?
– by RueTor
CAT: “Easy. Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat. Old show from the ’60’s. Was waaay ahead of its time. Before anti-Heros, before non-white main characters, before people with disabilities being treated like other people, before parkour, before swat, before genuine well-choreographed martial arts, this series was. Starred a young Robert Loggia as an ex-con cat burglar/ circus aerialist gypsy, who worked as a body guard for people that needed protection, with the police dept using him exclusively. That show deserves kudos for opening the door for so many other shows and characters ”
Delilah the Mad: I created this character long ago with the thoughts that I’m rather loony and that I also have a bit of a temper. When I decided to move to Siege permanently, 2 years ago, I realized that this name was still quite appropriate for my typists mentality.
