CAVERN EVENTS

THE GUILD OF PLAYERS – UPCOMING AUDITIONS
TheatreMan – MOUL Forums

TheatreMan wants to create an online theater company in MOULa. Post on the thread or PM him if interested in auditioning.  It is people like this who are willing to get out and try something new and are the ones who will keep the Cavern alive and active. We also need to participate and not wait to be entertained…

UPDATE ON NALATES’ ARTICLE RE: DEVOKAN AND THE MOUL FORUM
Dot posted this comment yesterday with more information:

The Devokan thread has not been locked, but has been moved to the Creativity section of the MOUL forum and a ‘Fan Fiction’ tag added to the title: http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17633

This means it will be possible to post summaries of journal entries, events and conversations on the MOUL thread, though any role-playing (e.g. between Quin, Nal and myself) will need to be elsewhere — probably on the GoMa forum, as Nal said.

The MOUL moderators have been very helpful and supportive in all of this.

EXPLORING SECOND LIFE
JOURNEY TO INNSMOUTH PART 3
Jandai Writer
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/29/221/25

(Short summary:  Our intrepid explorer has landed on what she thought was a stopping point on her travel itinerary.  Once there, she found the immediate area to be barren, charred and falling apart.  Upon coming across a sign, she realised she had been dropped off at the wrong location.  Coming to grips with that, she started towards what she thought was the town and hoped was a telephone.  Along the way, she finds 1920’s vehicles, some rusted, some in good condition – on her path.  She wonders about the age of these vehicles, as time appears to have stopped in the area.  As she starts to cross a bridge, she sees a strange unfriendly looking creature on the other side.  She crouches behind the car and takes a picture with her polaroid camera.  Then decides to head in a different direction than that of the creature.  Our explorer then prays in an old church she finds, and comes across what appears to be the center of the town – a playground surrounded by buildings.  She finds a building with a sign for a telephone, but any remnants of a telephone are long gone).

Despair.

That one word said it.   I couldn’t describe my feelings any more clearly than that.  I stood gaping at the old dilapidated building, thinking that maybe someone was going to jump out at any moment yelling “surprise!” and hand me the telephone I was so desperate to seek.

How could the world have left this place?  How could no one be here, and no one come through and set things right?  Nothing made sense to me, especially the creepy playground with the equipment turning.

What was that noise?  Great, it sounds like a little girl taunting me…”na, na, na, na, na, na, naa, naa”

Instead of enjoying the 1920’s vehicles in their well preserved state, they now struck me with fear.  If things have been left for this long, what will become of me?

I walked on – just what else could I do?  I found the long distance telegraph building – again falling apart, with no hope of finding a telephone.  I had to wonder if I would even get a connection to the outside world if I did find a telephone.  One thing I did find – alcohol.  These bottles have had YEARS to mature, so I found a few drops which slid down my throat very smoothly indeed.  I never had been one for drinking, but suddenly I was throwing caution to the wind.

Now with some dutch courage, I wandered the town openly and headed east.  Broken docks near the lighthouse, an intact dock, and an intact boat – may have to think about using that later.  Looking from the boat out towards the lighthouse, I froze.  Two more of the creatures were crouched together as though amicably watching the waves.  Reality hit me with a thud.  Not only was there more than one creature in this terrible place, but they were currently blocking what appeared to be my only way out.  In the distance, I could see what appeared to be a boat half on its side.  Was that the result of the last person to try to leave?

Boat,-lighthouse-and-creatures

I crept back up to the road and started south..but stopped once again when I saw yet another creature.  This one was standing inside one of the buildings.  I could even see its chest moving as it breathed.

I ducked into the nearest door and found myself in a bar.  Music was playing as though someone had only just been in here.  The old radio playing its tune merrily belied the tone of the town, and with my frustration mounting, it was all I could do to stop myself picking it up and throwing it against the wall.  But I didn’t want to draw attention to myself.  I had been lucky…so far.

So for now, I was going to enjoy myself in the bar, and partake of the offerings.  For all I knew, this could be the last drink I was ever going to have, and I was going to make it a good one.  “Top shelf thanks, Bartender”…
