18th Edition

Welcome to FW 18 as the sickly-sweet tones of all those Valentine's songs hang in the air... (erm, wait, that was Christmas). Keep wishing hard and you just might be lucky enough to receive a large, plastic-wrapped, heart-shaped box filled with dozens of cheap chocolates! Yes, the annual FW Valentine's messages do exist below, but after jumping straight to them please do stop and read some of the rest of the issue *grin*

Our January stint as the Mudconnector's MUD of the Month proved quite successful in bringing many new players to our door (or port, as it may be). While we've now been replaced with February's MOTM, you can still view TF's MOTM listing at Meanwhile, we're holding our own in the mudjournal's voting polls for "best overall MUD"! If you enjoy TF, why not go and vote for us!

A new version of the game is due out soon, bringing lots of little improvements you'll notice such as bug and typo fixes. This release will see an entirely updated batch of INFO files, thanks to the hard work of Bambi. The HELP files are currently being worked on by Firefly. Watch for the new version, and read INFO NEWSTUFF then as always, for a listing of new features.


We welcome both Robert and Rewind to the Clave as the the newest Counsels. Also since the last issue--Lost, Galena and Dale have made Apprentice and moved up within the ranks of the Conclave. Congrats on hard-earned positions!


If you haven't "experienced" them yet, you should definitely go try out TerraQuotes for a laugh! They've been recently expanded to now include over 150 Quotes and now have their own search. Speaking of searching, the search engine for the TF web site was also recently upgraded. You should now find it MUCH faster in returning results. Surely there's something you're dying to look for at the site.. give it a try!

Thanks to those who have signed up for the web site Link Program (and received their credit reward!)... if you've got a web page, consider signing up. LINK PROGRAM MEMBERS: an "improved" version of "badge1.gif" has been placed at the Link Program page for download now. This version will look better than the previous one on black and dark backgrounded-pages as well as light (and hopefully on any type of background in general!). You may wish to download this new version to replace the badge you're using.



Alas... these are the LAST two Terra Tales currently in the "vault". Anyone who wants to write another is quite free and welcome to! Just make sure you review the Tales featured since FW 9 (soon to have their own web section) to make sure you don't "duplicate". Send to BabyGirl


Tekcap Alzir had always been interested in magic. It was the one passion that burnt within him. It had started when, as a small boy, he had been captivated by the feats of an imprisoned magician, the feeling of awe and amazement he had experienced never left him. Alzir had later in life studied the books and scrolls that the Sorcerer had brought to his land and it was for that reason alone that he now stood in the freezing snow outside the Warm Haven Inn. Alzir felt an outsider in this world. He belonged to a proud and ancient people who had retreated into hiding thousands of years ago, coldly shunning the rest of the populace. Alzir, however, needed more than the confines of the self-inflicted exile could possibly give. He had been given permission to leave the ancient city and to venture into the alien, unknown world that lay beyond. The farewell had been traditional. Most of the community had turned out to wish him well, but it was only his mother that truly understood why he was leaving the city. In truth Alzir was thought of as mad to venture into the barbarian culture by most. The news that someone was going to leave the city had been the main gossip for months, ever since the announcement had been made. His friends, although they did not understand his reasons had been loyal and defended him against critics, but secretly even they hoped he would change his mind at the last moment.

That was not the case. In the tombs of the books he had been studying Alzir had discovered texts that described ancient magical wonders that existed in the world outside. Over the years the longing to see these miracles for himself had grown within him until it had become the concern of the ruling body. They could see no way that the young man would ever fit into their society and so had granted him permission to leave and seek his fate. His father had not spoken to him before he left, his mother had hugged him close, (the scent of her perfume even now filled his nostrils) and given him a travelling cloak as a farewell gift. He knew only one thing as he set off across the desert, to head north and to find the mountains of ice and snow: there he knew he would find what he sought. Alzir shivered with the cold and wrapped his thin cloak even tighter about his body. The high mountains of the Southern Pass surrounded him, throwing down their snow and wind to freeze him to the bone. He was glad that there were lights ahead.

The low stone doorway of the Haven Inn stood just out of the strongest of the wind. The muted sounds of laughter floated from behind a thick, well-made oak door, while through the snow-camouflaged windows, lights flickered and danced, sending warming orange-red shadows across the quiet snow outside. Alzir tried to rub some heat back into his body as he stared up at the clear night sky and gazed on the infinite, sometimes flickering silver points of light. He sighed, his breath smoking in the cold air, pulled the cloak hood over his head and walked towards the main door.

He paused, his chafed hand an inch from the large iron catch and listened to the chaos within. Alzir looked around the snow-muted landscape, the starlight reflected brightly from the pure white covering of the crisp snow, giving the area a strange semi-luminescence. It seemed so peaceful as he stood there alone in the eerie light. Alzir smiled to himself. He turned back to the door and, lifting the latch, walked cautiously into the Inn.


Diary of Captain R. Braithwaite, 16th September 1592

I am able to continue no longer, my life force is ebbing away slowly but inexorably. It seems that some kind of terrible plague has taken hold of my ship, the Endeavour. Many members of my crew have been struck down with it now, it looks as if there is no hope. I fear that the end is near for us. My sabre, the fabled Braithwaite sabre, passed down from generation to generation through my ancestors, I have entrusted to the care of Ronan, the first mate. I have charged him with conveying it to the Galapogus Temple for safekeeping. I know that there they will tend to the sabre and its terrible secret. Foul weapon! I must tell Ronan to warn the priests of its power, and to get the jewel, the source, removed at the temple. Then the sabre will be powerless, safe from falling into the wrong hands. This...this is a most important matter. As a safeguard, I have taken the time to destroy all manuscripts referring to the sabre and its secret; this should prove to be sufficient protection against foul play. I will write more later, but for now my strength is ailing me, and therefore I must rest.



Perhaps you were one of the inebriated masses this New Year's Eve past... (hey, save some for next year!). Here are words of wisdom and humour about this altered state.

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
-Frank Sinatra

The problem with some people is that when they aren't drunk, they're sober.
- William Butler Yeats

-Tom Waits

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence?

- Brian O'Rourke

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

-Homer Simpson



Year 2000 Memo
Subject: Year 2000

This memo announces the development of a major new software system. We are currently building a system that will contain all company data that is Year 2000 compliant. The program is referred to as the "Millennia Year Application Software System" (MYASS).

Next Monday at 9:00 there will be a meeting in which I will show MYASS to everyone. We will continue to hold demonstrations throughout the month so that all employees will have an opportunity to get a good look at MYASS.

As for the status of the implementation of the program, I have not addressed the networking aspects so currently only one person at a time can use MYASS. This restriction will be removed after MYASS expands.

Several people are using the program already and have come to depend on it. Just this morning I walked into a subordinate's office and was not surprised to find that he had his nose buried in MYASS.

I've noticed that some of the less technical personnel are somewhat afraid of MYASS.

Just last week, when asked to enter some information into the program, I had a secretary say to me "I'm a little nervous, I've never put anything in MYASS before." I volunteered to help her through her first time and when we were through she admitted that it was relatively painless and she was actually looking forward to doing it again. She went so far as to say that after using SAP and Oracle, she was ready to kiss MYASS.

I know there are concerns over the virus that was found in MYASS upon initial installation, but I am pleased to say the virus has been eliminated and we were able to save MYASS. In the future, however, protection will be required prior to entering MYASS.

We planned this system to encompass all information associated with the business. So as you begin using the program, feel free to put anything you want into MYASS. As MYASS grows larger, we envision a time when it will be commonplace to walk by an office and see a manager hand a paper to an employee and say "Here, stick this in MYASS".

This program has already demonstrated great benefit to the company during recent OSHA and EPA audits. After requesting certain historical data the agency representatives were amazed at how quickly we provided the information. When asked how the numbers could be retrieved so rapidly, our Environmental Manager proudly stated "Simple, I just pulled them out of MYASS".



Well it's 1999 now and 2000 is just around the corner--we won't escape hearing about the dreaded Y2K BUG this entire year! BUT do you know about another potential havoc-wreaking bug, the 100 GB bug??

Experts warned today of a new and deadly threat to our beleaguered civilization: the 100GB Bug.

As most people know, McDonald's restaurant signs show the number of hamburgers the giant chain has sold. That number now stands at 99 billion burgers, or 99 Gigaburgers (GB). Within months or even weeks, that number will roll over to 100GB. McDonald's signs, however, were designed years ago, when the prospect of selling one hundred billion hamburgers seemed unthinkably remote. So the signs have only two decimal places.

This means that, after the sale of the 100 billionth burger, McDonald's signs will read "00 Billion Burgers Sold." This, experts predict, will convince the public that, in over thirty years, no McDonald's hamburgers have ever in fact been sold, causing a complete collapse of consumer confidence in McDonald's products.

The ensuing catastrophic drop in sales is seen as almost certain to force the already-troubled company into bankruptcy. This, in turn, will push the teetering American economy over the brink, which, finally, will complete the total devastation of the global economy, ending civilization as we know it, and forcing us all to live on beetles.

"The people who know -- the sign-makers -- are really scared of 100GB", one expert said. "I don't know about you, but I'm digging up a copy of THE FIELD GUIDE TO NORTH AMERICAN INSECTS and heading for the hills."

Kahlil Gibran, "On Love", from The Prophet

Then said Almitra, "Speak to us of Love."
And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:

When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, "god is in my heart," but rather, I am in the heart of god."
And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.




Keep love in your heart.
A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life
that nothing else can bring.
~ Oscar Wilde

You Know Who.

Because you're the sweetest
And the most adorable,
Because you're so wonderful and
You're infinitely huggable,
Give me your heart and
I'll be yours forever,
Remember all the good times, you won't need to
Look any further than me *cross*

My darling Lucas,

I am your nervous servant.  So you don't like the way I go on
and on about about your door and my dog's flea problem?  Forgive
me if I digress from the subject of your non-existent beauty.
And please forgive me if I stare too directly at you in your
speedo, but I have never seen anyone who looks so elegant while
wolfing down cider.

Please, oh please, be my Valentine or I won't know what to do.

Yours superficially,
The Female of the Species


To my Snuggly Wuggly,

Shed a tear 'cause I'm missin' you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt
You're in my heart now

To Firefly:
If you go down to the woods today, you'd better not go alone.
It's lovely down in the woods today but safer to stay at home.
For every bear that certain there was, 
is gathered there for certain, because...
Today's the day the TEDdy bears have their picknic!!

Life without you would be like JAMC without feedback...
(Quieter, but nowhere near as good)


All my love

Dear Bliss,

Anyone who listens to a toal stranger harping on about the unfairness of life
deserves a medal. In this case hon, you deserve a GOLD.

Thank you so much for listening to me and letting me spoil your
day While i droaned on. Thanks for being there, and just...

Love, hugs and Kissess.... From The Guy With A Smile.

Roses are red,
Cyanobacta is blue,
Some day i will be mud-wed,
And hopefully to you!

I'm a dirty sod!

Try the Psychic Lipstick for new insights into the fate of your love.

We hear about and perhaps even know couples that have found eachother through the wonders of the Internet--here is just one touching story about two hearts that found eachother this way, and 'just knew'....

They met on the Internet too! Now you might think some strangers' web site about their wedding would not interest you, but have a look, it's actually pretty fun to read through!

The squirrel defamation league.


Well, on this V-Day just remember who loves ya baby! (there's SOMEONE out there who does, think hard!). Keep your chins up and think about spring right around the corner!

A ruddy drop of manly blood
The surging sea outweighs;
The world uncertain comes and goes,
The lover rooted stays.
