Just a reminder that the Guild of Writers is still taking submissions for their Tre'bivdil Stained Glass Project! Anyone is welcome to create a design and send it in for possible inclusion in Gehn shard's various hoods, much like was done for Eder Delin, Eder Tsogal, Gahreesen and the Great Zero in MOUL. The best three designs will be chosen by a panel of judges from the GoW.
The guidelines for submissions are as follows:
- The image used must be at least 256 by 256 pixels or larger (up to 1024 x 1024).
- There must be two images: one full color image and another set to greyscale for reflection (see the forum post for more details on that)
- The images must be in a "lossless" format. If you're not sure what to use, the PNG format will suffice.
You can submit your creations to email@example.com by midnight Pacific Daylight Time on October 31st, or 01:00 KI time the next day. Let's see what this talented community can do!
Recently announced on the MOULa forums by Lord Chaos:
"This Saturday, October 6, will be the last formal Radio KTDN broadcast."
At approximately 11:00 ki-time an all day broadcast will begin featuring the hits and highlights of this amazing seven year run featuring over 500 shows. Reactions of the announcement have varied from nostalgic (Tai'lahr: "Suddenly all the memories are rising to the surface. Soooo many events in the cavern in which your show was not just a backdrop, but set the tone and took center stage.") to causiously bright and opitimistic (janaba: "We might as well still be dancing at the AGM!").

Heritage Night supervisor DimensionTravelerCalum is calling for speakers for the next round of Sunday nights, with the schedule to be planned around those interested in speaking. He is also updating his call for managers for weekday nights, amending that any language is welcome to be used at HN, not just English.
No previous experience is required, as training will be provided. Previous knowledge of the canonical story itself is not required either. Other recommendations for managing can be found at the previous call for managers on the Heritage Night website.
If you are interested in either job, you can contact DimensionTravelerCalum via the information on the Heritage Night website's Contact page. For more information on HN speaking and managing, click here.
Following-up on his work for a Marker Exchange, Lyrositor announced at today's All Guilds Meeting that he has created a Marker Editor, a modified client for Uru that allows for the download and upload of marker games as text files through a set of simple KI commands. These files can then be edited by any text editing programs to customize an existing marker game or to create an entirely new one. The client is open-source and available for all to download and use.
Integration between the Marker Editor and Marker Exchange is planned, with games uploaded to the Marker Exchange being made available for download using the Marker Editor format. Read more
The Guild of Archivists made an important announcement a few days ago regarding their website, DPWR.net. A massive overhaul is indeed planned by Alahmnat, consisting of various changes.
First of all, the current DPWR.net will be archived and locked to remain as-is for the foreseeable future. This means that all new content will be on a new domain (quite possible guildofarchivists.org) built from the ground up (all previous users will retain their accounts and PMs, but the gallery and the forums will be wiped clean). The forums will also see several existing categories be removed, and registration will be re-enabled once more.
With this technical refresh comes also a planned content update to bring people "a clean, modern, and informative place to learn about the D'niverse", with a complete rebuilding of all the previous content on the new website (inducing a temporary lack of information on the new website while everything is being transfered and surveyed). All MRD fanfics will also be transferred, unlike non-MRD fanfics.
The planned launch date for the new website is September 30th.
