It has been finished!

The new area, The Northern Plains, is up! Many thanks to Kroz and Stardeo. This is area #5 for me, and rewrite #3. I'm busily working on more projects, so expect something to come up sometime soon!

it's almost there!

I'm excited to hear that mudconnector is back up, because this means that I can vote again. Another area of excitement is that I'm almost almost ALMOST done with my next area. It's in my court again, because Kroz the Wonder Spellchecker has just gone through the area and found all of my typos and my sleep-deprived logical mistakes. The snowflake quest was also a lot of fun, and I'm glad to see that so many people participated. I know that ROM can seem a little lonely at times, but I'm pretty convinced that it's mostly because our player base is spread all over the world.

Let's make ROM a great place to be!

My goal this year is to finish another rewrite sometime this year, and to work on my next area, code named A.S. It's a 300 room area, so it won't get finished for quite a while yet, but I seem to bounce back and forth between writing new material and rewriting old material. I really do enjoy building...

Otherwise, things to announce is that I removed the maze in the Azure Sea, which should make things quite a bit more accessible for the lower levels in that area. Go visit Sigin, people!

ROM and Mudconnector

It seems that Mudconnector finally cleared up their proverbial act and has changed their voting system.

We're going to start having people (hopefully) vote once daily for our mud which might garner us more players.

To vote for us, please click on the following link and follow the directions.

As of the writing of this note we're #10 on their list.

Happy New Beer!

Well, for New Years' Eve, my hubby and I went to a comedy show at Massey Hall . The show looked like it would be good as there were a lot of comedians that we both enjoy watching, however, it wasn't that enjoyable. The comedy was pretty flat, the audience didn't really get into it and the comedians (seeing that the hall was only about half full) didn't seem to be putting all that much effort into it; at least that was the case for the first half of the show.

The second half fared much better and the comedy was markedly sharper. The Frantics, who haven't been together in about 20 years, were the best part of the show. It was like they had never been apart. Most of you probably haven't heard of them, but they truly are hilarious. :)

Since the weather was really nice that night we decided to go for a walk after the show. We ended up heading over to Nathan Philips Square (Toronto City Hall) to watch the festivities. We stood around for about 45 minutes, watching the entertainment, but the sound quality was terrible so we ended up leaving. Before I left, I contributed some money to the Tsunami Relief Fund set up by the Canadian Red Cross .

We then headed over to The Keg for a couple of 'keg-sized' drinks (mmmm brown cows). The restaurant was a real 'meat market', (no pun intended). We stayed there for an hour or so and then headed home. Since it was WELL after midnight, the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) opened up the subway to everyone for free which is a rather nice value-added (and REALLY responsible for them to do so).

What did you guys do for New Year's?

First of all, Happy New Year. :)

I worked a little - ended up having a hot date: went for sushi, then to a movie (House of Flying Daggers). Mm. Sushi. And mm, Takeshi Kaneshiro is a hottie.
