Where do we begin? There have been a number
of changes since the last edition. Well, no time like the present...
The game is now running version 4.8. The Court, Clave
and Conclave have been quite busy since
the last edition. There is a new quest out, the new
commerce system is being refined and there are a heap of new mobiles
for you to interact with.
New Quest - Sewer
As part of his plot to turn Visionar into
a realm of chaos, the Dreamkeeper has sent a family of demons into
the sewer to destroy all life that ventures down below the Town
Square. Within a few hours, the demons will have had time to grow,
and will emerge from the sewer and rampage throughout the city,
tearing it to shreds. This threat must be eradicated.
Have you ever wanted a rope, or been in dire need
of a herb to save you from death? Well now finding items such as these
has become easier. The mobiles have set up shop selling their wares
to the adventurers that cross their threshold, selling everything
from fruit to candles, hats to the finest pork chops. Shopkeepers
have taken hold of this new opportunity and set up new businesses
in the northeastern village, and also in Beilefeld, and all of the
already-existing shops have been renovated to sell their goods. These
items are in finite supply, thus if too many of a certain item are
bought, the shop will run out of that item. Alas, this also means
the end of free alcohol in the taverns, but you should also find you
can get drunk more easily on the larger range of beverages! (Just
don't drink too much. Alcohol poisoning isn't an enjoyable experience!)
Here's a list of some of the Mobiles who've recently arrived in Terra:
The tailor and metalsmith mobiles in the caravan.
The grocer in Hamelin.
The butcher, milkmaid and ropeseller mobiles in the Village.
The candlemaker and fruiterer mobiles in Beilefeld.
The taverns now have a happy hour which occurs at 1 and 7 AM and 1 and 7 PM.
Congratulations go out to all the players that
rose the ranks since the last edition. This includes...
- Dale - Advisor
- Bambi - Lady
- Bey - Stalwart
- Cub - Stalwart
- Milkyeyes - Counsel
We've also had several players who made apprentice and are working their way up the conclave. There are an average of around 8 newbies a day trying
out the game. Everybody be sure to welcome the new players, and here's hoping that they stay a while.
After some time out of commission, the web "who" listing should be working again.
The TerraFirmA web site is now also a member of the Aber MUD web ring.

New FW Co-Editor
We are pleased to announce that there is a new co-editor working for Freewheeling.
EnChAnTeR has kindly accepted the challenge of producing
Freewheeling in cooperation with BabyGirl to give her some well-earned
breathing space. BabyGirl has been producing Freewheeling since October
1996 and recently she has not had the time to commit to producing
regular editions. With EnChAnTeR's help we may be able to produce
more regular editions and give something back to the players of TerraFirma.
We are looking for information to put into the next
edition of Freewheeling, this is due to be released at the end of
January 2002. Please Email (or MudMail) EnChAnTeR
with your information or articles.
