Thank You Europa

December 20, 2013 By: petra Category: Europa News



Mr & Mrs Claus were most gratified by the numbers who turned out to greet them in Luna, though not all were the good children I’m afraid.

In all 85 Christmas bags were given out.

They hope to see you all again next year.

The Time Lord III Final

October 09, 2013 By: Odin Of Europa Category: Europa News

We waited for the Time Lord again to help him find his final stolen item.
Good evening, I am glad to see so many brave people here.
Today we need to get my last stolen item back, and to get hold on the Master Thief!
If all goes well, all things should be back to normal.

Before we go, I want to thank you all! You all did a great job, to fight the evil and to bring back my items.
I hope with this final fight all will have a good end.
Today it will be again very dangerous and I hope you are all well armed!

I will keep it short today, as I cant open us a moongate and so we need to walk… So please follow me and stay together!

We followed The Time Lord to the bank in west Britain.

Please take the moongate to Ilshenar / Humility and wait there for me!

From the Humility moongate, he led us south, eventually into Ki-rin Passage.

Please stay together and follow me!
We are coming closer!
Lets wait for all here
Now we need to be really careful, any moment we could get attacked!

Suddenly, great monsters known as Protector of the Mirror attacked!

After a long battle, moving further into the passage, The Time Lord led us into an area where dragon kin dwell to find another great beast .. A Mirror of the Time Lord!

The fight was hard, but our great warriors soon brought it down!

A few lucky fighters were rewarded for their efforts in the battle.

That was a good fight! We won! I knew you guys could handle this!

But… Did any of you see the Master Thief!?
I was hoping that he will be here… hmm…
Finally he escaped…
I hope that he learned his lesson as I did…
I need to be much more careful and take care about my Items…
They are too powerful to let them go to someones hand…

As I am done here on your world, I will travel now to another realm…
I was to long here, and a lot of work is waiting for me.
Farewell and I wish you all a nice and long live!

The Time Lord II

September 15, 2013 By: Odin Of Europa Category: Europa News

We waited at the EM Hall to help the Time Lord retrieve another of his items that was stolen by the master thief.

Hello and good evening,
I see, here are many people which want to help me. That makes me even surer that I was asking the right people!

Today we need to reclaim another of my stolen items. It will be dangerous as we have to fight our way thru a dangerous dungeon.

I hope you all are well armed!
Nothing more needs to be said! Lets go in and win!
Please follow me I will open a Moongate for us!

The gate led to Ilshenar, east of Exodus our destination.

Please stay together and follow me! There are very dangerous creatures over there!

There was the usual monsters in the area around Exodus, but there were some new mighty beasts inside, many blue dragons called Grandfather Clock Protector.

The fight with these beasts was long and hard. They were immensely strong, able to kill a man with a swipe of their claws and their size constantly caused earthquakes as they moved.

Our leader kept calling out encouragement during the battle.
Get them!
Take them down!
Yes! Well done!
Be careful!
Its hard but we can do this !

After killing many Grandfather Clock Protector’s we headed to the west.
We need to fight our way to the small room in the west !

We were in for another surprise; if we thought the Grandfather Clock Protector’s were bad, but they were nothing compared to what came next – A Grandfather Clock Protector!

It moved amazingly fast and hit hard! It also caused many earthquakes as it moved.

The fight was brutal, many of the brave warriors died to this fearsome foe, but we kept working on it and eventually it fell!

A few lucky fighters were rewarded for their efforts in the battle.
A reward of grandfather clock has been placed in your backpack.

Well done! We reclaimed another of my items! Now I am just missing one! I hope you will help me to get this one also back!

For today we fought enough! We all need some rest! I wish you all a good weekend!
Please wait a few moments I will open you a Gate!

The Time Lord

August 27, 2013 By: Odin Of Europa Category: Europa News

A crowd waited at the EM Hall as requested, and at the advertised time, a stranger appeared.

Good evening,


I am the Time Lord, my task is to travel thru the time and to warn people when terrible things are going to happen.

Today I am here about a personal reason. Three Items of me were stolen by a master thief, those items must be recovered before its too late, each item has powers to make time shift!

I want to let you know what it is all about.

The Master Thief hate me because long time ago, he use to be a nobleman and was married to a beautiful wife. One day his wife got killed during an accident and the master Thief used a magic spell to get to the realm where I was located.

He begged me to reverse time for him so he can save his wife but I had to refuse.

As an Act of revenge, he vowed to learn the craft of stealing from the best thieves from all the realms to become a master thief himself and swore to travel back to his realm to create hell for me.

His first act of vengeance was to reverse time back to the world of Demons. So when the Master Thief went back there, he gave one of my items to a demon Boss to hold on. I was there, and I saw horrible demons…

Unfortunately I am not a good fighter…

Thats the reason why I am here…

I want to ask you all if you want to help me to reclaim my items.

Are you going to help me?

*looks around*

Thats great!

I knew that I am going to find here brave warrior!

 We need to travel back in time…

To a time when demons ruled this world…

I will open us a moongate…

Please be care full the demons are strong!


We were transported back in time to Moonglow.  It was full of demons of many kinds – Gentry Demons, molochs, ice fiends and balrons.




After a long battle killing many demons, it seemed as though the battle was coming to an end, but suddenly, a huge demon the likes I have never seen before appeared, its skin was multi coloured like a rainbow and it seemed to sparkle.  It was called An Archdemon.


After a long hard fight, this fearsome foe finlly fell against our greater numbers and power.


That was great you all did a very good job! I got one of my items back!

Now I miss two more Items. I hope you are going to help me with this also!

But for today we fought enough, we all need to get some rest…

I wish you all a good night and a nice weekend!

*waves* :)



A lucky few received a reward for their efforts when the Archdemon was brought down.

Wish You Were Here

Aron Swordmaster: We were just honoring you, Spirit
Spirit of Emile: Thanks a lot guys :)
EM Adris: Its good to see you
Mim Foxglove: hope someone take pics..
EM Adris: You really will be missed Emile
Morgana: True :
Morgana: :/
EM Adris: We’ll have a toast in your honour!
Spirit of Emile: I will miss you guys as well.
EM Adris: I see free booze.
Spirit of Emile: But as you can see
Spirit of Emile: At least I will be with you in spirit :)
Ayara-Bee: :)
Mim Foxglove: *sniff*
Aron Swordmaster: And the lore, you have left us many notable characters
EM Adris: *nods*
Aurelius: You’ll certainly never be forgotten…
Aron Swordmaster: We were just talking of Father Grant, I think his cathedral will, when complete, also be a Cathedral Of Layne not just Love
Spirit of Emile: Yes, my favourite part Aron!
XaiSa: !
EM Adris: Thats a nice thought Aron
Spirit of Emile: I’d love to see that one day
Spirit of Emile: I was always bad at cleaning up though
Iljian: Fortunately.
EM Adris: Im afraid Im not much better at cleaning Emile
Spirit of Emile: So there’s bound to be plenty of little memories littered around Britannia
EM Adris: What was your favourite event Emile?
ARAGORN: emile thank you for helping us in CD with our scavenger hunts emile
Spirit of Emile: Oh, wow that is a tough question Adris
Spirit of Emile: I only ran like…. a hundred or so
Morgana: *Smiles*
Spirit of Emile: Hm, on reflection….
Aron Swordmaster: dont be shy now 😉 Leave us with more inspiration
Spirit of Emile: Probably closer to two-hundred
Spirit of Emile: Well…
Spirit of Emile: One of the more recent events I was really proud of
Spirit of Emile: Were Blackthorn and Dupre’s Dreams
EM Adris: Blackthorn was a great introduction
Spirit of Emile: I put a LOT of work in to those
Spirit of Emile: And I think the result showed :)
Iljian: It showed, too.
Aurelius: It showed too!
Mim Foxglove: *aplauds*
EM Adris: *nods*
Spirit of Emile: So, yea that is one I will always remember
ARAGORN: i loved the events that featured Queen Dawn by far some of ur best work
EM Adris: *nods*
Aurelius: Aye, you made some of the global stuff actually interesting …
Spirit of Emile: Heh, you mean like Dawn’s Dream?
Spirit of Emile: While we’re on the subject of dreams….
Aurelius: Compered to other shards where it was sometimes dull…
Aron Swordmaster: Aye, the ones where there were new environments really took advantage of the EMs powers, it’s like having teeny little mini expansions free
EM Adris: Heh that was one of my favourites
EM Adris: Took a while for people to figure out how to ‘sleep’ hehe
Ayara-Bee: hehe
Spirit of Emile: Oh yes, the pool!
Spirit of Emile: I took it upon myself to teleport all of you around that time….
Spirit of Emile: 50-ish players
Spirit of Emile: That took a while 😀
John II: yummy
Spirit of Emile: There were no fancy mechanics involved at all that time. Just old fashioned handwork
Meredth: k
Mim Foxglove: *smiles*
EM Adris: Things havent changed!
Aron Swordmaster: Apparently you’ve been an inspiration to the whole EM program…
EM Adris: *grins*
Spirit of Emile: Hmmm, another favourite of mine were the Serpentwyne events
Iljian: Yay
Hex: Petes treasure, with the clues
The hand rearer: more alcohol
Spirit of Emile: Which, were inspired by Iljian actually :)
EM Adris: *claps*
Iljian: Meh. Liar. All yourth.
Spirit of Emile: It was you who put me on that track though, if I remember correctly
Aurelius: Iljian’s just dodging the claims for insurance money ….
Aurelius: and being too modest …
ARAGORN: loved the serpentwyne events
Spirit of Emile: And another memory that I count as a highlight
Spirit of Emile: The night GRD chased Casca out of Britain
ARAGORN: should of made more barrels :/ *glances over at the near empty kegs*
Hex: the mini events where we worked things out on our own from the fiction
Spirit of Emile: Not just GRD though
Hex: finding the infected elf camps
Spirit of Emile: There were over 100 players there that night
John II: I have one stored somewhere .. be right back
Spirit of Emile: And Casca was supposed to be in power, for another 2 months or so
Spirit of Emile: But of course there was no way we would ignore a player initiative like that
Ayara-Bee: :)
Spirit of Emile: So Europa was the first to evict Casca
EM Adris: *grin*
EM Adris: Good old GRD..
Aurelius: That’s why so many things were fun… interplay between you and us…
Spirit of Emile: Oh, yes Aurelius
ARAGORN: wehen was it decided to kill Queen Dawn?
Spirit of Emile: That was the most fun part
Aurelius: Even when we messed up your plans
Aurelius: *Smiles*
Spirit of Emile: Haha, and that you did Aurelius
Spirit of Emile: Especially during the first arc I did with Sarakan
Spirit of Emile: The Black Gate arc, does anybody remeber that?
Hex: Mericles?
Iljian: Aye
Aurelius: Yep….
Spirit of Emile: That was the first arc involving Mericles
Aron Swordmaster: When the GRD houses finally fell, Wanda et all managed to save most of their lore, I have it now for safekeeping. Mericles, the man who just wouldn’t die
Iljian: The daft wizard who got caught by a pile of garbage.
Spirit of Emile: Sarakan and I only had a very vague idea of where that plot was going to go
Spirit of Emile: We litterally wrote it as we went along
Spirit of Emile: And almost every week, there would be a re-write
Spirit of Emile: Cause of something one of you guys had said
Spirit of Emile: And idea on how to solve a problem or something else
You see:  A Dark Stranger
Iljian: Some of that flexibility seems to have gone missing since then…?
Spirit of Emile: *Nods* Yes, policies had to change over time sadly
EM Adris: Id have to agree that it has
John II: sorry, that’s all I could find
Iljian: Which is a shame.
John II: I found two bottles of this though
Spirit of Emile: I agree Iljian… but what can you do…
John II: an chicken and ribs
Iljian: Leave, apparently. *sighs*
Spirit of Emile: *Grins*
Aurelius: We’ll just have to make Adris work harder and change all his plans too…
EM Adris: *grin*
Spirit of Emile: Adris wil do a great job I’m sure :)
Spirit of Emile: You know…..
Spirit of Emile: When he joined the program
Spirit of Emile: I tested him on his knowledge
Spirit of Emile: Before he got his robe
Spirit of Emile: *Grins*
EM Adris: I remember it well
EM Adris: Two years ago next week actually
Spirit of Emile: He was one of the best candidates I tested
Ayara-Bee: :)
Aron Swordmaster: How many players can you kill in 5 minutes, that sort of question I expect
Spirit of Emile: *Laughs*
EM Adris: 5 minutes is a very long time
Spirit of Emile: Close enough
EM Adris: *grin*
Hex: how many ways to kill players?
Aurelius: “Should any player survive an EM event, yes or no”…
Spirit of Emile: Yea, I remember the times I killed you ALL in like a second….
EM Adris: I think death by drowning has to get an award..
Spirit of Emile: The infected miner?
EM Adris: That was fun
Spirit of Emile: Anybody remember him?
Iljian: Aye
Hex: in Brit?
ARAGORN: if they do they didnt try hard enough hehe
Aurelius: ‘Rescue the miners’ ….. it began …
Spirit of Emile: That was a bit of a shock to us as well 😀
Aron Swordmaster: Rescue yourselves from the miners is how it ended
ARAGORN: ive gotta get going *stands up unsteadily*
Spirit of Emile: *Laughs*
Aurelius: Became ‘rescue us from the miners’…
ARAGORN: rl wont leave me alone today
Aron Swordmaster: Think I still have screenshots of that one somewhere
Ayara-Bee: me too
Aron Swordmaster: Well, it was content like that which leaves this the only MMO I still play
ARAGORN: *holds up a bottle* to emile..thanks for all your service here :)
Aurelius: Post them on the forums ….
Spirit of Emile: That was a nice pile of corpses
EM Adris: Thank yuo for coming Aragorn
Aurelius: I usually fail to get pictures in colour…
Iljian: Best goldsink ever invented.
Spirit of Emile: Thanks for coming Aragorn
Aron Swordmaster: Started here, tried WoW, EQ2, Lineage 2, EvE… too many to recall, but the EMs here are one reason I never really needed more than UO
EM Adris: Aw
Spirit of Emile: Glad I could be a part in that Aron
Spirit of Emile: The EM program really is something unique to UO I think
EM Adris: *nods*
John II: good cassis that is … quite old
Aron Swordmaster: Now you’re off the clock as it were… will you try Shadow of the Avatar, or is that it for rp for a while?
Spirit of Emile: I’m taking a little time off yes.
Aurelius: Or even come back and just play UO …
Spirit of Emile: But I’m sure I’ll get back to it in due time
Aurelius: Give Adris chance to kill you as well as us ….
EM Adris: Its so hard to do EMing and play the game
Moira: lol
EM Adris: Im sure you will love having so much time Emile
Spirit of Emile: Oh yes :)
Aron Swordmaster: You should make trial accounts emile, and come demand EM items from Adris!
Spirit of Emile: *Laughs*
EM Adris: Pfft
Spirit of Emile: I’ll just haunt him!
John II: It’s on me!
Aron Swordmaster: Wow!
Aron Swordmaster: I can see it now, lines of “Emile (Young)” saying “call this stuff?! Mah stuff iz betta”
EM Adris: Emile.. Giving items?!
Mim Foxglove: hehehe
Spirit of Emile: *Grins* Me? Never
Aurelius: He gave out plenty of death robes…
Aron Swordmaster: Be fair, I think he did give the only item that flamestrikes it’s user
Aurelius: Something he seems to have taught Adris, too …
EM Adris: Aye I have one of those Aron
EM Adris: Very nice
Spirit of Emile: That was actually as Sarakan item….
Aurelius: Emile’s version would flamestrike you and then explode too…
EM Adris: Heh
Bill Brakespeare: and do damage
Aurelius: Just to make sure it got you…
Spirit of Emile: I think the ‘coolest’ item I ever gave out was the Serpentwyne Recipe Runebook
Hex: surround u with water
Aron Swordmaster: *shrugs* I dont think anyone here ever really kept count, you were all part of the creative team for those who came for the experience. 😉
John II: probably shouts insults afterwards .. just to spice it up
Iljian: They are great.
Aurelius: That Serpentwyne book is special..
Aron Swordmaster: Aye, it’s probably my favourite too, as I can use it to host runes to elsewhere too for those who look inside
EM Adris: You yelled at me for trying to get two of those Emile..
EM Adris: *sticks tongue out*
Spirit of Emile: *Grins* That does sound like me
Aron Swordmaster: I love that we got to leave flowers at the grave too; they aren’t named, but we did that
Spirit of Emile: Which grave? There were many
Aurelius: And Dawn’s garden …. was that one of yours? the idea, that is…
Aurelius: Not Dawns”’ memory going …
Aurelius: Hannah’s …
Ayara-Bee: Hannahs
Sparrow: hannahs lover
Spirit of Emile: I did make Dawn’s grave yes
Spirit of Emile: Hannah’s garden was designed by Flame if I remember correctly
Spirit of Emile: We did a contest for it
EM Adris: *nods*
Sparrow: and one in brit castle gardens
Ayara-Bee: yes
Aron Swordmaster: The one in Lost Lands is the one I’m thinking of, but Dawns Grave was lovely too
Aurelius: Aye, she won the ‘design’, but someone ran the ‘competition’…
EM Adris: It was a great idea
Spirit of Emile: Sarakan and I ran those events together
EM Adris: We should decorate more empty areas of the map
Iljian: Hannah and her lover were a horribly, horribly sad story… and great, too.
Spirit of Emile: Not sure who came up with it tbh
Aurelius: Then you both did!
Aron Swordmaster: I still carry a rune for the graves, it’s marked for the Brotherhood
Spirit of Emile: That was a long time ago :)
Sparrow: Clainin
Sparrow: another grave
Spirit of Emile: Heh, yup
Spirit of Emile: We killed off quite a few characters over the years
EM Adris: But Fynn and Skaros continue on…
EM Adris: *grin*
Aurelius: Characters… players… occasionally servers…
Spirit of Emile: And don’t forget Clegg
EM Adris: Oh aye
John II: got me a book from the library for later *G*
Spirit of Emile: *Sings*
EM Adris: Well he could have a terrible boating accident and vanish. People would buy that.
Spirit of Emile: Colonel Clegg…. had a wooden leg!
Aurelius: ‘and his wooden leg’….
Spirit of Emile: He won it in the war
Spirit of Emile: In 1944….
Spirit of Emile: That’s a little Pink Floyd :)
Aurelius: Another of your ‘musical references’…
Ayara-Bee: hehe
Spirit of Emile: Oh, you got that Aurelius?
Aron Swordmaster: So we have to eat our meat to get our pudding drop today? oh dear
Aurelius: I did….
Ayara-Bee: i remember when i first saw the record with Emile Layne
Spirit of Emile: Good good :)
Ayara-Bee: i was just helllloooo
Spirit of Emile: Ha!
Aurelius: and the inspiration for Emile Layne…
Ayara-Bee: they stole our EMs name
Ayara-Bee: lol
Spirit of Emile: I didn’t think many people got that one
Aron Swordmaster: *feels silly* I thought it was your actual name in real life
Ayara-Bee: my fiance has that record
Ayara-Bee: 😀
Aurelius: Emily, and Arnold…
Spirit of Emile: But it’s a contraction
Spirit of Emile: Of See Emily Play
Spirit of Emile: And Arnold Layne
Spirit of Emile: Very old Pink Floyd songs
Spirit of Emile: And Colonel Clegg was of course Corporal Clegg
Spirit of Emile: That last one wasn’t so clever…
Bill Brakespeare: You’re showing your age Emile…
EM Adris: So the reason your quitting is you ran out of Pink Floyd references to use?
Spirit of Emile: Oh, and of course Fynn Barrett
Aron Swordmaster: Damn it, I’ve been encouraging Prog Rock all these years, I feel so ashamed
Spirit of Emile: Is from the writer Fynn
Spirit of Emile: And the Sid Barrett
Spirit of Emile: There have been loads of music references Aron
Spirit of Emile: Sarakan was also a fan of that
Aurelius: Storyline titles and episodes too …
Spirit of Emile: Yup
Aron Swordmaster: Well there we have it… even now you have new things to offer
Aron Swordmaster: I completely missed all of that
Spirit of Emile: *Laughs*
Spirit of Emile: You’re going to have to dig through the archives now
Aron Swordmaster: But! Have you read the well wishes? There’s a fair few who aren’t here tonight who wrote their farewells for you
Spirit of Emile: I actually can’t… I”m a spirit
EM Adris: *grin*
EM Adris: Cant eat any cake either..
Spirit of Emile: But I will :)
Mim Foxglove: aww
Spirit of Emile: Save a little nostalgia for later
Spirit of Emile: Ok guys, I think that about covers it
EM Adris: *smiles*
Spirit of Emile: Thank you all for coming
Spirit of Emile: Not just tonight

Rescuing The Ship P2

April 30, 2013 By: Odin Of Europa Category: Europa News

We meet the Sultan as arranged in his palace.
Good evening! Its good to see so many of you. Tonight will be a bit tricky! We have to move a HUGE ship stuck at sea. We have two tasks this evening. One. Remove rocks holding the ship in place.
Number two Dive underwater to unhook the anchor. It is stuck in the plantlife and whatnot.
So. Remove rocks. Then dive.

I have faith in you all. We were born to dive.
But first! We must head out And undo the rocks. Lets get ready to go

The Sultan then gates us back to the moored ship.


As we get back onto the ship after clearing the rocks, pirates attack!

When we reach the bottom, the water is so cold many cannot endure it for long and have to resurface; but this is not the only problem, we’re met by some unfriendly inhabitants. After a battle with these smaller creature’s, a much larger monster appears.
It takes a long, hard battle, with many deaths, but finally the Tangled Sea Creature falls.

Its down!
The anchor is free!
We did it! The anchor is now free.
I shall gate you home shortly
Well done everyone! We managed to free the anchor.
Thank you all those just resurfacing!
That was very tricky. But we did it.
Theres is a gate on the docks back to Britain

A lucky few received a reward for their efforts when the Tangled Sea Creature was brought down.

Rescuing The Ship

April 30, 2013 By: Odin Of Europa Category: Europa News

A group gathered at the throne room in Castle Blackthorn waiting for the King.
King Blackthorn: Greetings Citizens *Looks around the room*
I’m glad to see somany familair faces. Accomplished members of the Royal Guard. For tonight we have a somewhat…. delicate matter to attend to.
It has to do with the sultanata of Nujel’m. As you know, Nujel’m is under control of the Sultan and while we’ve had a reasonably good relationship so far….
I’ve recieved reports that he’s constructing ships at their harbour
Now, these ships could have a perfectly ligitmate reason
Or… it could be the Sultan is preparing for something….

You helped the Sultan collect Hydra’s you say? All the more reason for concern!
I would like you to go and have a look at these ships the Sultan is building. See if you can find out about their purpose. But! Be careful about it We don’t want to cause an incident if we don’t have to.

The King opened a gate for us to the harbour in Nujel’m, where we found the Sultan.

Sultan Kebur: Oh! Hello What are you all doing here? Invesitgating what?! These ships are mine.
We need the ships for water.. After all You had us take down the water treatment plant after the pork infection So we need much larger ships to carry the water..

Actually.. You may be able to help me. I have knowledge of a stranded vessel It would be a mighty fine addiiton to the Nujelm fleet. Would you help me get it? its stranded! The sea weed is all over.. Tis dusty Old.. Will you all come with me to this ship? I bet with us all we can rescue it. Its moored We have much work to do. I have a ship on Bald Island We can go there now And I will take you there I appreciate you coming along.
This will surprise you.. This ship really is stuck!

The Sultan then gates us to his ship on Bald Island.

Sultan Kebur: This is my personal boat This ship that we need to rescue is nearby Lets go
Here it is Everyone off! This… This is it! Isn’t it a beuty. This is big enough for LARGE amounts of water. Trouble is.. Its moored off And has been for some time..
It has an owner? Oh.. Well How could a goblin own an entire ship? Lets look for him.

Just then, someone spots a ship incoming from the south.

Sultan Kebur: ship incoming? Who else knows wer’e here?!
He’s firing his cannons! What a rude pirate!
The pirate ship is sailing! WE’RE SHOWING IT!
ITS COMING BACK!!!! DUCK!!!! OI! You stop firing those cannons!
Get off the crapper and lend a hand!
IM ON! Come out come out whereever you are
HA! Turn around you..
John has been tied up..
*wipes brow*
Nasty pirates Okay we have this boat under our control Well done! Its still afloat! Somehow The issue is.. This boat is still moored! What to do.. You think we can pull this out? With the two ships

Suddenly the owner of the ship appears.

Snox The Goblin: What’sss sthis noise all about then? And what are you all doing on my ship!?

Sultan Kebur: YOU are the Goblin?! Where have you been?! We have had cannon fire..

Snox The Goblin: Yesh, my name ish Shnox The Goblin And thish ish my ship!

Sultan Kebur: Why are you all out here? Alone.. On this big boat.

Snox The Goblin: *Face palms* You shee thoshe big rocksh?

Sultan Kebur: I did yes. They hold the boat in I assume?

Snox The Goblin: The ship ish shtuck!

Sultan Kebur: I can offer to fix that. And you can be set free. Wouldn’t you love that? To run around with other goblins..

Snox The Goblin: *Laughs manically* You musht be joking! Thish is my ship, my home!

Sultan Kebur: Let me make you an offer Goblin. *wispers into the goblins ears*

Snox The Goblin: *Leans in to listen*
*Jumps up in the air from joy* Oh yesh!

Sultan Kebur: Would you like that?

Snox The Goblin: I accept! Bye bye!

Sultan Kebur: Well.. He seemed to like my offer. Probably found another plae to hide..
I said we would return him to his family in the Underworld. Seems only fair. And in return.. We get to unfree this big ship.
I think we have had enough fighting for today though. How about you all return on Sunday to help me? *smiles widely*
I will have a plan for us then. I thank you for helping me today. Let me get you all home safely, and see you on Sunday!

Helping the Sultan

April 17, 2013 By: petra Category: Europa News

Contributed by Odin of Europa
Sultan Kebur needed our help again so we joined him at his palace in Nujel’m as requested.
Good evening
Thank you for coming
I have a bit.. Well. I have an issue..
And I need menly men.. and lady ladies. Which are you.
You see.. I sent a group of members from Nujelm to the Prism of Light on a little ‘mission’. Sadly, they haven’t returned..
They were trying to tame.. an exotic animal. That is all I will say
Will you all help me rescue my men

The downside is you all have to pay. The fee to enter is 10,000 gold
It goes towards.. Uh. Funds.
It is a dangerous place
The animals we were taming are of the water variety.

Inside the Prism of Light there were a few new residents.


Unfortunately, in the area with the ice elementals, the Sultan made a grizzly descovery.
I found two of them…
They died
I sent three members..
I only see two bodies..

In the final area of the dungeon we found the third member or the missing party, and what they had been searching for.
Clyde! Your alive..

The Sultan gated us all back to his palace where he discussed the feeding arrangements for the hydra’s with Clyde before thanking us all for helping and would inform us when he needed our help in the future.

Santa Surprised on Europa

December 20, 2012 By: petra Category: Europa News


Santa got such a surprise when he arrived in Luna tonight. He’d never seen so many people waiting for him before!

With the help of his reindeer and a well loaded llama he handed out the small gifts he had brought with him.

His bag got emptier, and emptier,  and the people kept on coming!


Then he started emptying the llama’s pack, and still they came.

Till eventually, with much regret, he actually ran out of gifts!  81 gifts given out to the people of Europa.

He hurried home and rounded up his elves, now one of them stands at the Green Gargoyle Restuarant and Angry Mongbat Tavern  in Yew (57º18N 25º48W) ready to hand out more gifts to anyone who stops by to wish him Merry Christmas.


Santa would like to convey his thanks for the warm welcome he had on the shard and his regrets that he underestimated the number of people who would come to meet him.
