Phew, have you had a look at the date recently? I just did, and like every year, I noticed that this one is nearly over again. I could start all that “Jeez, time’s too short” whining again, but, although that’s true, it would probably be inappropriate because so much has happened in so little time.
The following is my small personal summary of events that made this advent season a very special one.
The holidays are always a busy time of year...and the cavern is no different!
The International Hood will be hosting their own party for everyone to enjoy: the International Hood Holiday Open House - "Log in to log out". The fun will start in their hood all day on Sunday, December 22nd.
The group has encouraged explorers to bring their favorite holiday recipes to share with everyone. It's recommended to put your name on these recipes so it's known who should get credit for the tasty treats.
There will also be music streamed at https://aegura.harriman4.com for the party.
To you from us, the International Hood Members would like to wish all explorers and Cyan staff members the very best Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
Jamie Marchant is excited to announce the launch of the new version of the well-known Heritage Night!
Starting December 15th, 2013 at 13:00 KI-time, that Sunday will kick off a monthly retelling of the major events which have occured during the history of Uru Live. The current event series will focus on recollections of events that have occurred since the cavern's most recent reopening back in February 2010 to the present.
The first session of this redesigned Heritage Night will include the following:
- Greetings & welcome to both old and new explorers
- Historical narrative by Jamie Marchant, a special guest, and/or both
- Chat and questions concerning the storyline.
- A related activity/field trip.
Anyone can attend, thus allowing new explorers to hear stories they "myst", while veteran explorers can "take the trip down memory lane". This first session will also end with a Q&A for new players.
Jamie and your fellow explorers look forward to seeing you there!
The D'ni Musicological Research hood is proud to welcome back Robyn Miller for an interview on Saturday, December 21st, 2013 at 18:00 KI-time.
This interview will be Robyn Miller - In His own Words, meaning it's not so much of a structured interview with scripted questions, but rather, they will have an open discussion with him about his new film, The Immortal Augustus Gladstone.
They will also discuss Obduction (to the degree he can speculate or disclose) and other projects that are ahead for him, plus some biographical background and history as well.
You can listen in at the appropriate time on their music stream: http://18.104.22.168:6042/
Please join the DMR for this informative interview as they welcome Robyn back to the Cavern!
Update 1: The Guild of Messengers will be sponsoring the party in MOULa on December 21st...with Doobes as your host!

We'll hop to one of the three major OS shards each week of the season. Get your avatars ready (and put your Santa hats on) for the Christmas Party Hop. Watch this thread for updates from your favorite shard administrators and guilds. A little birdie told us that we might even have a visit from the ever elusive large man from the north.
