Truly Naughty Troop Newsletter – Edition 2 – 11th February 2004

These posts are archives of forum / blog entries I made on my EverQuest guild website. The website won’t be around forever, and I wanted the posts all in one place so I didn’t lose them, this blog seemed like as good a place as any.

Introduction

And so a bright new light dawns over the second edition of the TNT Newsletter. Thanks to those of you who've stuck with us over the last edition and welcome to those of you who are new to this, the sparkling new 2nd edition. The plan is to send one of these out each week, on Wednesdays, containing any news about the guild. If there's not much news, it'll be a short one. Wednesday seems a good day, since it can help you catch up on any activity over the last weekend, and prepared you for anything coming up next weekend.

The newsletter is not a replacement for the board, and more often than not will just summarise something and provide a link - so, go sign up and take part - pub21.ezboard.com/btrulynaughtytroop

You've already signed up to get the newsletter, obviously 😉 , but I'd like to encourage you to get your guild-mates to sign up as well. The more folk signed up the better. E-mail addresses will be kept private, and will only be used to send out this newsletter on a weekly basis, so it's safe to sign up. Spread the word!

If you feel like contributing something to the newsletter, or have any feedback on it, please drop me a mail at tnt-newsletter@darkstorm.co.uk and I'll see what I can do.

News

More levelling goodness - Teiry hit the magic 65 last week, grats Teiry, meanwhile the guild gained it's latest 60th level character when Belkhanu dinged 60, grats Belk.

400's the Magic Number - as Serayus explained in this post (pub21.ezboard.com/ftrulyn...187.topic) the guild has exceeded more than 400 characters (including alts) for the first time since it was created. Yay us. He doesn't mention that most of those are his, Moone's and Frappo's 😉

Gates of Discord is out - as if you hadn't noticed. Also, by the time you read this, the new tradeskill UI should be live (yay), the casino is back (er perhaps yay), and 'Zerkers are wandering the land. Why not post your first GoD experiences on the board (assuming you got the expansion).

I've been to a couple or three of the GoD zones, and took some screen shots (these are from the next zone on from Natimbi, I can't recall the name!), www.darkstorm.co.uk/galle...me=album06 Reports suggest the mobs hit for around 500 and are about the same toughness as PoV mobs. Every mob in those screenshots was dark blue at level 65.

Missed the previous edition of this newsletter? Deleted it and want to read it again (to assist with getting to sleep perhaps?), check out the previous editions here pub21.ezboard.com/ftrulyn...troopfrm19 thanks to the Keeper of the Boards.

Strapped for cash? Again? Where does it all go? Well, Eloina wrote an excellent post on the boards covering how to earn a little bit of cash on the side. This won't make you a million plat, but it will help cover your outgoings, buy your spells and get you some upgrades or resist gear - pub21.ezboard.com/ftrulyn...=142.topic

Torv boards - some people may consider this link useful, some might consider it the cesspit of the 'net, but here you go - pub173.ezboard.com/btorvboard - that's the location of the semi-official Torv boards. Sometimes there's something useful, mostly it's retirement messages and flames, caution is advised. Oh, and wear your flack jacket.
