Mojo is Dead

Many of you are familiar with Mojo, the spirited horse of Nobody. He yearned to run free. He bore Xavian on his back even before Xavian was a guild member. He never left my corpse unattended.

Mojo was murdered early this morning. I (Nobody) was talking with Black Widow at an inn in Buccaneer’s Den on Baja for several minutes. Two PKers appeared fractions of a second after she logged out and immediately began to fight me. One was armed with a sword and the other with fireballs—both were armed with childish jibes. I succumbed quickly to their attacks, but, not having replaced all my gear after another recent PK attack, I was not dramatically upset. I died and passed into that state of existence wherein one may seek out a healer for resurrection and began to leave the scene. I glanced back and was horrified. Mojo was screaming as he reared up and defended himself. They slaughtered him, and I can only believe this was so I would have nothing upon returning. Mojo went down fighting defending the only three items I was able to recover. The only items that he felt meant anything to me: my sash, kilt, and cape. The symbols of the BS&R.

I shall be mourning my loss of Mojo privately, but appreciate your prayers for him. I was alone once, and I am alone again. I will not be replacing him with another horse, for how can you replace such a loyal friend? Mojo gave his only life in the true spirit of the BS&R, defending my corpse and my gear, and I shall never forget him for that.

Mojo guard. Mojo good. Mojo release.

Invitation from Tanis

Tanis has invited us to a feast being held by his guild. Tanis is the Quartermaster of the Dungeon Masters Guard (DMG), a division of the New Outriders (NOR). Their feast will be at 9:00pm EST Friday night on Ocllo (I assume on the Baja Shard). In Tanis’s own words:

“Seasons Greetings to all. I’d like to officially invite all my friends to a party at Balf’s house on Friday night at 9:00pm EST. I’m inviting everyone I know including the BS&R guild to join me to celebrate the season. Should be lots of fun and a chance for everyone to get to meet new friends. This message brought to you by the good folks at Balf’s Pet shop where our motto is “I never met a bear I couldn’t tame.” RSVP please to me. :)

“Let me know when you arrive or if you need directions or help getting here. I and many of my friends have boats. I could meet you at the docks in Magincia...”

Holiday Feast a Success

The Britannia Search & Rescue Guild Holiday Feast was held at its Operations Center (Baja Shard) on December 14th, 1997. The members who participated were, in no particular order, Big Bub, Blitz, PapaMan, Black Widow, Milton, Master of Puppets, O’lorae, and Nobody. Tanis, a representative from an allied guild, also joined our festivities. Tanis is the Quartermaster of the Dungeon Masters Guard (DMG), a division of the New Outriders (NOR), attended as a preliminary event to forming an anti-PK alliance with the BS&R. Passer-by Mr. Christian was so embraced by the BS&R family that most everyone cried out to have him sworn-in right away.

Read all about the Feast, and see the screenshots, here.

BS&R Operations Center

Construction of the Britannia Search & Rescue Operations Center has begun. The initial building, a small smith shop, has been placed in the center of the open field south of Yew, west of the Eastern Mountain Range, North of the Orc Fort. Donations are still being accepted, as another, larger, building is under consideration. And, I'll say it again, any member who donates gets a key and a runestone Marked with a nearby location.

I would like to thank Black Widow, PapaMan, Master of Puppets, and Big Bub for their donations. I would also like to dedicate the construction of this first building of the BS&R OC to Black Widow, for her donations (the highest thus far), her setting up the runestones (that we can Recall to the BS&R OC), and her recent support of the BS&R in general.
