[RP News] The Haunted House Deco Contest

September 23, 2012 By: WarderDragon Category: Baja News

The Kingdom of Dawn is sponsoring a Halloween House Decoration Contest this year. The prize is going to be a Europa Gold Harpsichord Deed. This contest is only for houses on the Baja Shard. The winner will be announced at the October Fest that EM Crysania is planning (date unknown at this time but she said last week of October).

You may put up a small display, decorate the whole house or any range in between. Felucca and Trammel houses are both welcome to enter; however, the judges must be able to see the display for it to be judged.

A container with a book with the name of your house, your character name and an email address or ICQ number where you can be reached and a rune to the house will need to be dropped off in the mailbox at the Dawn Malas Outpost by October 20, 2012 (tentative date). It is the second house west of Umbra West Gate on the north side of the road.

Interview With A Zombie And A Tour Of It’s Mausoleum

August 14, 2012 By: Amber Witch Category: Baja News

This interview kicks off, what I hope to be, a series of interviews of Baja’s wonderful and creative residents and a tour of their home. If there is someone that you would like to see interviewed please send me a PM.

 

A Zombie is one of those people who make this game just so much more interesting and tries to make this game fun for others. Below is a brief interview with Zombie. I hope you enjoy it.

          

 

What was the inspiration for the zombie Mausoleum?  

A place to keep brain museums.  Plus zombies need a place to call home too, ya know?  (OOC I just like doing things umm differently and  I wasn’t aware of another “mausoleum” in existence)   Also being placed in Felucca gives non-allied players a chance to “tap the zombie” so to speak .  That’s right, I’m speaking to you “real tough guy!”

 

You’re charging a one brain fee to enter. Do you have visitors that actually donate a brain? I find that rather odd.

 Funny thing is, there are about 20 brains in the box.  And odd is my middle name. Wesley Odd Zombie the 3rd.

 

Why do you have exhibits on the Town Guards and the Girl Scouts? 

To prove to all the other zombie wannabes out there that I am one bad mutha…..   I chose the Town Guards because they are my sworn mortal enemies, and I wanted to make an example of what happens to those who dare try to thwart the zombie.  And I chose the EVIL girl scouts out of begrudging respect.  Compared to them I am like the bud light of evil.  There is also the added bonus of managing to creep out our last two EM’s.   That in itself is worth the effort.

 

How did you become a zombie? Do you have a girlfriend?

1st part long story.

2nd part  No… 2 words … Dry Rot.  I did have a special she zombie friend a while back.  But she claimed I only loved her for her brain so it didn’t last.

OK so how I became a zombie …  I was alive once, a simple farm hand to a family of nobles.  I fell in love with the beautiful daughter, Buttercup, but I had no means to support her.  So off I went to make my fortune.

 I fell in as an errand boy to a somewhat incompetent necromancer.  This was a huge mistake, becoming an apprentice to someone who calls himself “The Slug” simply can’t end well.  After an unfortunate accident involving demon blood, nightshade, blackrock, mongbat testicles and a cauldron, I woke up feeling kinda funny.  As time passed I realized that my flesh was decaying, I stank horribly and I had developed a real taste for living brains. I had also been freed from the mortal views of “virtue” and good and evil. 

To make a long story even longer, I returned to my family of nobles, and of course, ate their brains.  I offered Buttercup the chance for immortality, but she declined, citing the fact that immortality was far too malodorous for her liking.  I left her alone, since her brain would not have made even a decent midnight snack.  I then built myself a mausoleum and starting slinking around Britain, thinking that there might might be a few decent sized brains left there .

 

Has the way you play the game changed since you first started playing UO? If so, why and how?

Kinda OOC but I’ll answer anyway.   

I’ve been around since ’97 (beta actually) off and on. The game has evolved, obviously, and so have I.  I have gone from being a wide eyed newbie myself (back when you you couldn’t set skills, there were no guilds and spellbooks weren’t even blessed) to pking newbies in chicken form, ( I had a mage named “a chicken” for a while)   Then I got involved in an anti-pk guild (simply called the Knights, then Elder Knights, then Great Horny Toads)   The Great Horny Toads still exist today, but only 4 or 5 real people left and I have no desire to re-grow the guild.   I attempted (key word being attempted) PvP up until about the time of Samurai Empire, when things got too complicated for me.  Since then a few large guilds, UG.K, AFK/UTB 2 stints in [email protected] and M!S for a short time.  (I am in the Town Guards now) But the drama and rules of being in a large alliance got to me so since then I have been more or less on my own with a small group of trusted friends.

 

Who do you hang with ingame now? Or should I be asking.. who hangs out with zombies ingame?

Hey that’s not nice !!   *hmph*    I even took a bath about 100 or so years ago! 

Needless to say I try to hang out with whoever has a brain, but for some reason, those with brains tend to avoid me or just run away.  *sighs*

 

Who are some of the people that inspire you ingame?

Anyone who does their own thing and goes their own way really.  Corporal Brackus is a major role model, I have nothing but respect for the way he plays this game.  Handalf, of course.  Mama Faith, Jocasta, Al, you Amber, Sally the Pie Girl, and many more that I have either forgotten or just too lazy to list.

What do you enjoy doing ingame?

 Just relaxing and having fun.  EM events are always fun, and doing pretty much anything with my alliance mates, or other like minded people .  I’m not a PvPer, RPer or anything else.  I’m simply me, that’s all.

 

Anything else I should be asking that I’ve forgotten or that you would like to say?  

*moans *    *spits*   *squish*    *flaps*   OK I think I about covered  it.

Baja’s Call To Arms Video

June 29, 2012 By: Amber Witch Category: Baja News

Well I learned something… after I recorded it. The software only records up to an hour at a time. So guess what? The end didn’t get recorded. But here is a good portion of it. The footage of the battle is pretty amazing and the sheer number of people engaged in battle was impressive. This was an epic battle!

 


Hope you see yourself somewhere!

Sally’s Famous Pie Shop – Grand Opening

March 05, 2012 By: Amber Witch Category: Baja News

 

Sally…. Pie…. Pie…. Sally….!

For at least the last two years those two words have been inseparable on Baja! And as of last Sunday even more so with the opening of Sally’s Famous Pie Shop. The shop is located in a land that is surrounded by mountains and you can only get there by magic. Bakery, restaurant and pie museum are all in one location. There were pies that most of us have never seen before, one being a Maple Leaf Pie.
At the beginning of the tour Sally thanked EM Godiva for giving her the idea of a pie shop, JINX for donating some of the pies that are in the museum and Toni Fierce for thinking up the name of the shop. After the tour Sally had planned a scavenger hunt for us. Everyone was given a book that had the items you had to find. I don’t think any two books were alike. First place winner was Dragon Lynx, Chareos won 2nd place and Glory won 3rd place. First place prize was 5 million gold!

We all were given a gift bag that included a recipe book for a “Handalf Pot Pie”. I was pretty surprised when I read the title but in reading the recipe you discover that it’s actually a recipe for building a nest that looks like a pie!

Congratulations Sally and thank you!

 

The following is a short video of the grand opening.

Best Shot In The Realm – February 2012

February 28, 2012 By: Amber Witch Category: Baja News

Submitted by an Anonymous Author:

Many archers gathered at the fairgrounds for the monthly Best Shot in the Realm last Saturday night, hosted by Misfits of Society. The weather was fair and there were low winds and and as always the spirits were high at the start of the evening. A lucky number of 13 archers registered for their chance to walk away with the 1 million gold prize and an engraved bow deeming the recipient “Champion, Best Shot in the Realm, February 2012.”

The rules were read by Toni Fierce and Round 1 of the contest got underway. James, Aerowyn Faeryn, Grey Eagle, Nemesis, TOBY (last month’s champion), Llama, Richard Lionhart, Bucko, Ahebban, Debi, Claudia, Handalf and Aleecia were called up by two’s to take their best shots. Grey Eagle, Handalf, Debi and Aleecia were the night’s first casualties, with scores of 30, 22, 30 and 57, respectively.

 

The judges quickly realized the buttes must still be “off” because Debi and Grey Eagle are legendary archers. Grey Eagle has even been known to shoot apples off the heads of many of his companions with nary a fatality!

 

Lady EM Godiva appeared suddenly like an angel, accessed the situation, and offered two more buttes in front of the existing ones. Again the archers were called up in pairs of two and did their best to get a robin hood, something they were all more than capable of. Round 2’s casualties included James, Nemesis, Llama and Richard Lionhart. It seems the new buttes didn’t work any better than the original buttes, in spite of the efforts of our angel.

 

Round 3 saw Aerowyn Faeryn, TOBY, Bucko and Ahebban prepared to give their best effort to walk away with the night’s prize. A score of 150 was required to move to Round 4. The archers were called up to shoot one by one. Aerowyn Faeryn took her best shot, but this legendary archer finished with a score of 30! The crowd gasped in shock and offered their heartfelt consolation to Aerowyn. Next up was TOBY, January’s winner, who finished his turn with a score of 160, enough to go to Round 4, if there would be one. Next up was Bucko, who gave his best effort, but finished with a score of 70. Ahebban followed Bucko’s lead and also ended with a 70.

Congratulations TOBY on winning the February 2012 Best Shot In The Realm!
