Top ten reasons to build an area for SojournIII:

10. Your area will live longer here, than on 99% of the muds on the net.
9. Your area will forever be a part of something you already love.
8. Your area will be played by the best mudders on the net.
7. Your eq will be worn by hundreds of people, who will be proud to have earned something you created.
6. The world you create will be a place people on the other side of the earth will want to visit.
5. The endless challenge of coming up with something that hasn't been done before.
4. The endless search for ways to use the capabilities of the area files in ways that were never intended. (orig. rareloads for instance)
3. It's the ultimate "Kilroy was here".
2. You get a god on the greatest mud in history.

And by far, the biggest thrill of all:

1. The utter thrill of those sweet sweet status messages when the first group enters your zone:

***STATUS: Player1 killed by Mahdrel at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player2 killed by Mahdrel at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player3 killed by a vault sentinal at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player4 killed by a vault sentinal at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player5 killed by a vault sentinal at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player6 killed by a vault sentinal at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player7 killed by Mahdrel at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player8 killed by Mahdrel at The Vault Guard's Post
***STATUS: Player9 killed by Mahdrel at The Vault Guard's Post

I'd love to run a reverse dungeon (a la Chaos Christmas) where the players get to run the Imms through a zone or two:


***STATUS: Miax killed by pixie at A widdle clearing in da forest.
***STATUS: Mask killed by succubus in his bedroom.
***STATUS: Tempus killed by a rat while sneaking through the sewers.

My top 10

10)Logging on and getting 800 requests for CR help after Diac spanked 30 ppl in jot
9) Practicing quickchant/spellcast summoning by casting "create food" 5000 times to learn it only once.
8) Seeing all the newbies who would literally stand in awe of anyone who could kill a street cleaner in one hit/spell.
7) having the leader of the zone im in group-say ********************FULL SPELL UP ********************8 4X in a row, all the while complaining about the amount of group spam.
6) recieving a tell that says "well me now, I dont care what you are doing.. im being tracked" by certain un-named players *cough* you know who you are.
5) Watching all the interesting Pezdeath messages during a Tia battle.
4) sending a thousand tells of "hello!" to all the wyrmies, prides, and VS'ers.
3) Getting a tell from Mikar to do jot with a group full of newbies with no eq (which actually turned out to be the funnest jot groups ever)
2)Walking to the entrance to GC only to shout 'Lyt Lyt! where are you? i cant see you!'
1) Watching Soave flee back and forth between 3 warlocks in gith for 30 minutes because he cant get his wimpy off.

GEEEEZ april is forever away!!!! Image
