Truly Naughty Troop Newsletter – Edition 12 – 21st April 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.

1. Introduction

Welcome to edition 12. In the search for something original and witty to say in the introduction, I tried to find a picture on the web of some ASCII art breasts. See the lengths that I'll go to, to make this newsletter worth it? Anyway, I found some but they're either too large to include, to badly done or need to be done in very small text for it to work. So there goes that idea. Still, it passed half an hour.

It's been a frustrating week for many folk in EQ, not much grouping going on during some times of the day, not sure if I can offer any advice other than hang in there and set your own groups up if and when you can (not that I ever do that, I'm low on energy and patience so putting pickup groups together isn't something I relish).

Anyway enough of this, on with the meat as they say.

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.

2. News

Vindi Eats TNT (and not in a good way) - two attempts, two almost complete wipes (yay FD). Vindi chewed through us like a tasty omelette. We will be back, we're just not sure when. Long discussion here b22.ezboard.com/ftrulynau...=176.topic and here b22.ezboard.com/ftrulynau...=247.topic

Ixiblat sues for harassment - in just breaking news, Ixiblat Fer has filed against TNT for continued harassment. In a statement, the Fire Elemental said, "TNT continually spawn me in my burning woods home (located off Veksar this week) chase me around and kill me. I'm tired of it frankly, and I want it to stop." No one from the Troop was available for comment, although a large order for fire resistance rings has been placed. Grats to Xakc for getting One Step Closer. Screenshots here www.darkstorm.co.uk/galle...xakc_ixi_1 and here www.darkstorm.co.uk/galle...akc_ixi_2. Full Epic Screenshot Gallery is here www.darkstorm.co.uk/galle...me=album07

Ding - Teeliana strikes 60 (and if you see her in BoT two levels early, it's because she's flagged) - Grats Teel.

Yrethia released - after being kidnapped and held in a small white box for nearly three days, we are relieved to hear that Yrethia has finally been released and is once again terrorising frogs in Guk. Congrats 🙂

DKP-A-Rama - there's a new forum on the boards which records your DKP raid attendance, check it out here b22.ezboard.com/ftrulynaughtytroopfrm21

Everquest FAQ - rather than post this in the links section, I thought I'd include it here. There's an everquest newsgroup (alt.games.everquest), and the folk in there have put a FAQ together, it's BIG and I haven't read all of it so can't promise how accurate or useful it is, but here's the link anyway - webpages.charter.net/lenny13/age.faq.htm

[Know someone who dinged something significant? Let me know - I'm not always on (no, honestly) so sometimes don't get to see dingage]

4. Zone-mania

Someone PLEASE send me a description of your favourite zone and why - if you don't, I'll write something and you'll be forced to listen to my endless waffling. You Have Been Warned. (Or, I may just post nude ascii-art).

10. Feedback

Please feel free to send all feedback about this newsletter to tnt-newsletter@darkstorm.co.uk.

Let me know if you'd like to see any additional sections or content, and if you have any content to contribute. The best way to get content into the newsletter, is to post it to the boards, and I'll pick it up. If you like, send me a pointer requesting it be added, but the board is the first place you should stick it 🙂

If you would like to stop receiving the newsletter, or would like to change your e-mail address, or any other administrative mail should also be sent to tnt-newsletter@darkstorm.co.uk - please remember to include your character name and e-mail address.

You can also send me a tell in game as Gnomtrix if I'm on.
