If you've met that special someone and have been waiting for the right
time to celebrate your happiness, now is the time to act!  An all-new

date and time of your choice from November through February 2000!

GameMasters will assist you with all the special touches, from customized
invitations to the wedding cake. Choose from one of several beautiful
locations to make your vows and make it a day to remember! Check out the
Wedding link at http://dragonrealms.net for details and dates!

BRAIN-SCRAMBLE RESULTS!
The scores for the SimuCon Brain-Scramble Quest have been tallied, much to
the relief of GM Solomon's eyes! The final results are:

Third Place Prize of a Free Quest Ticket and one free month of Platinum
Service: Amery Metonar!

Second Place Prize of a Free Quest Ticket and three months of Platinum
Service: Allequerie Nisara!

And the First Place Prize goes to a group of DragonRealms players who
teamed up and almost finished the ENTIRE pack of puzzles! A big huzzah to
Allyria, Berrien, Truthgar, Danaria, Barchus, Jaig, and Rayje who have all
won a free Quest Ticket and six months of Platinum Service!

GUILD NEWS GALORE!
There have been a number of exciting new developments in the DragonRealms
guilds in the past few weeks... so many we can't even list them all!
Here's a sampling of what's been happening - for the full stories on these
and other recent releases, check out the Guild News section of in-game
NEWS.

Paladin Guild
After a meeting between the Paladin Council and various guild leaders, the
Glyph of Light was recently introduced, adding to the perception of Guild
members. Lady Avant visited to discuss the merits of the new ability and
has extended an open invitation for all to come visit the Mer'Kresh guild.
For a full report, check out NEWS 20.

Cleric Guild
Feathers, rumored to be holy in nature, can now be found in most of the
cleric shops in the realms. The individual purchaser will determine the
usefulness of these feathers. See NEWS 23 for more details.

Warrior Mage Guild
All players can now sell Kort potion to the elementals in Warrior Mage
Guildhalls, and Warrior Mages can buy it from them. Check out NEWS 25 for
more information.

Moon Mage Guild
Students of 30th circle or higher in the Crossing's Moon Mage Guildhouse
will now be able to SHOW  DOOR. If successful, this new
ability will remove any pesky troublemakers from the Guild for a certain
amount of time. See NEWS 27 for more details.

DEVELOPMENTS IN MAGIC
After a brief delay, the Cleric Spell "Faenella's Fire" has been released
to all Clerics. Additionally, the DragonRealms Spell List is now available
on the official Simutronics site at http://dragonrealms.net under the
Information/Magic section.

LOCKPICK & DISARM CHANGES
This week two important changes have gone live. One: While searching out a
trap on any box, you will now run the risk of it blowing up during the
process. The chance is lower with the more skill you have. Two: The bug
affecting picking a box while the trap is still armed has been fixed.
However, be extra careful picking through traps that are above your level
-- they will explode!  With this added risk will come added EXP.

Voice your concerns or questions about this change to the Thieves Den
folder of the DragonRealms message boards under the topic, "Boxes and
Bombs".

--------------------------------------------
