Dear Cry for Help,
I am very new to the realms. I've reached level 10,
but I'm having a hard time meeting new people. Everyone seems
to already have a clique or group of people they associate with.
Every time I meet someone around my level, they are hanging
around avatars already. I'm too young to join most guilds
and orders. Do you have any suggestions..I enjoy the Realms,
but its too large of a place when you're by yourself.
Little Fish in a Big Pond
Dear Little Fish,
It's not really such a big pond! Try doing a who 10 10 and you will
see just how many people are your level. It may seem as though everyone
is already grouped with another person, but there are always people looking
for a friendly hand (or fin even). Try finding players that are less
experienced than you and offer your assistance. As soon as your level
permits join a Guild, Order, or Clan. It's a great way to meet new people
with common interests and to learn about the Realms. Swim out there and
Anaisse GreyBorne :)

Quest Central News
Aphrael held the Name the imm quest
This quest had avs compare mobs to imms and give a reason why.
Here are some of the quest entries.
Circe - Aphrodite. Creating the honorable Maidenstone, Circe has
given her maidens the love, beauty, and grace that they seek. Her
embrace of the beauty of the female gender has been the foundation
of strength for Maidenstone.
Morphina - Innkeeper Jed. Like Jed and his book of tales, Morphina
is full of imagination and stories...which in turn are applied
nicely as the background for any of her quests. :)
Lascivias-Supermob- Lascivias seems to me to be the hardest working non-
CoE or Code Council imm I know and although us mortals do not get to see
the supermob zooming about doing his work, we still know he's busy.
Nivek-Harakiem- Harakiem seems to be the guardian of Darkhaven. Nivek when
he was head of Code Council was like the guardian of the realms, protecting
us from all those evil bugs, hard drive failures, and hackers.
Viracocha-Dh Peddler- I think the DH Peddlers are the most killed mobs in
the of the most killed imms I've known
This description reminds me of Mystaric. It is a good example of
blending strength and courage with kindness. I think it is the
essence of showing that being nice can also go along with being
strong and assertive when it's necessary. Mystaric is our editor
for CoD. Often our meetings get silly very quickly :) Mystaric
is always nice about it, helping to keep the meetings fun but
keeping us on the subject we are discussing
Ranma reminds me of the old and worn out winnie the pooh bear even
though she claims that she's a bunny. They're both cute, old, and
Calis always call himself the frog so froghemoth reminds me of him. Calis
also yell at ppl who ask for a "frog run" on avchat before. =)
Abattoir reminds me of his creator, Taboo. They share the same wacko
humour and they're both crazy. They both also laugh at those who dare
to face them.
Father time is like Thoric. Father time was the beginning of time and he'd
be at the end of time. Thoric started the mud and he could close the mud
anytime he wants.
Mystaric and Atalanta, because both are the heart of the Maidenstone.
Aphrael- Tsythia,One creates Mushrooms, the other creates Much rooms
Gorog - Master Tull. Owners of a vicious hound.
Julie- Fharlangan. Normally quiiet and hidden, but appears with thunder.
Liksani - Isis, the spammiest mob I can think of.
Morphina - Papa in Kusnir, he also sets quests that are impossible to
Moonbeam - Speedy Comet. Both hurtle around the realms in a blaze of light.
Stoney - Half-troll fortress guards. Try to be sneaky, and witness
explain- He is a mighty person with a heart of Gold but with fists
The Blademaster(Bushido) is shrouded in flowing shadow and light.
Bushido, Forever Samurai, is represented here, and he gave me a
impressive display of deft bladework. Ouch.
Viracocha - Little Green Tree Frog = Vira loves to hang about in the trees,
and he especially likes to surprise young maidens who wander close. At first
they are shocked to see him, then they giggle, but they are always left
wondering if that cute little frog is really a handsome prince inside.
Aphrael - A swirling eddie - Yes Lady Aphrael is much like the wind, free
spirited and unownable, the perfect image of serenity and peace.

Article Submissions (Poems and Stories)
Love is a commonly used word. However, what is love? That's a million
dollar question. According to the dictionaries that I looked in, it's a
noun and a verb. It means "deep affection and warm feeling for another,"
"the emotion of romance, a strong fondness," and to like or desire. I've
also heard some people said that love is a word created by Hallmark Inc.
to sell cards. It's an easy word to remember and an easy word to say.
Some people say I love you as easy as they say "ABC." On the other hand,
some people are afraid of the word love. Those people act as though love
would come after them and hunt them down to harm them. Love has different
reactions depending on the gender, except in some special cases. A woman
would think it's a sweet, caring, romantic word. A man would think it's
just a word probably a scary word. If a woman were to tell a man she loves
him, he'd cringe and try to flee. If a man were to tell a woman that he
loves her, which is almost never, the woman would be devoted to the man
You can say the word love made Hollywood famous. If you were to
spontaneously of show it is, love would be there. Hollywood live off of
the word love. I think it's safe to say that all Hollywood movies have a
type of love in it. Titanic, for example, is a tragic historical event.
James Cameron sasaw it differently. He saw love stories and decided to make
a movie about a love story. The movie Titanic was a success at the box office
not because it was a tragic historical event but a love story between Rose
How can a four-letter word be sweet, caring, and scary at the same time?
I wish I knew the answer to that question because the word love confuses me
too. For me, love is a word that's indescribable. Love's a feeling and so I
can't look at it and describe it. I guess that's why the question "What is
love? so hard to answer. Does it exist? I don't know yet but I'm sure that
it won't be long until I find out the truth.
Jibberish by Thulkinn Krogenstar (The Insane Mage)
Once upon some cottage cheese,
I ran into some giant fleas,
Fleas be nimble, fleas be quick,
Satan Rides a Pogo Stick!
Clouds are sad, and eggplants die.
Said a siamese midget fly.
Come with me, come and see,
We'll watch the sunrise from beneath the sea.
But for now I have to flee.
And flee he did, or did he Flea?
Asked the dragon when he spoke to me.
And Elvis said, with a swastika on his head,
My steed named Ed, is dead on the bed.
And under the hood of my Yugo there stood,
Pamela Lee, since she looked so good.
My ears went out for a walk yester-night,
They grew wings, and grew flight.
So I lent my ears, to a pixie's plight.
Which to all the world was Jibberish!
