Ever wonder what your ‘Master of Obernewtyns’ and Moderators (affectionately know as MoOs and mods) get up during this time of the year?
Yes, all of that. But, most importantly
, the month before September has been a time when the Moonfairies come out from their place of residence to assist in preparation for Obernewtyn.net’s annual Moonfair!
Of course, it’s not always smooth sailing for your mods, things can get a little hectic...
But perhaps the most fearful creature of them all is the… is the -
MK: [act]looks to the other MoOs[/act] Dare I say it?
Tanya: :O You don’t mean –
MK: I think I do –
Min: Noooo; we do not speak of that
MK: The most fearful creature of them all is...
Min: [act]shrugs[/act] Nevermind; please continue.
[act]MK gives a skeptical eye before continuing on with the narrative[/act]
The Destroyer Pig! Yes, the revelation was brought about by Obernet member Miska back during the days of the Proboards who realised that the only true character who could fit the description as Elspeth’s equal –
Elspeth: I’m sorry? Did you just compare me to the likes of a pig?
Rushton: There there my dear, we only know there is only one girl that could ever be in my heart |:|
Elspeth: What was with that emoticon?
Rushton: Nothing |:| [act]meanwhile Min is walking up to Rushton to push him in to a conveniently located pool[/act]
[act]Bec appears and high-fives Min[/act]
MK: Are you two quite finished? Can I please continue? [act]gives Min and Bec a bit of a glare[/act]
[act]Min whistles innocently[/act]
MK: The Destroyer pig was the only character in the first book who could truly fit the character bent on destruction, chaos and matched against Elspeth ability for ability! Since then, members of Obernet have been weary to keep an eye on the little bugger, especially in light of recent events. In any case, with recent events, the members of Obernetwyn.net thought they were safe from this monstrosity. But they were wrong. Oh how wrong they were...
Emerald: It turns out that someone
left the gate to the farm open and all our pigs have escaped! [act]gives Rushton a glare[/act]
Rushton: Hey?! Why are we all looking at me for? It’s not like I’ve been the farm overseer for some time. And besides, who was the genius who placed The Destroyer Pig in the same pen as the other pigs?
[act]goes to previous farm footage, and it shows Rushton herding the pig into the normal pen[/act]
Rushton [act]cough[/act] Oh, that’s right, I shifted her in order to rent out her room to some highlanders. We’re currently in an economic financial crisis you know! What with the land being taken over by the rebels, and trade with the Sadorians not confirmed, it’s hard to be certain of finance during this times! And besides - that still doesn’t explain who left the gate open.
Elspeth: [act]interrupts[/act] Actually guys – this just in on ‘The Land Radio’ streaming live through the mind of Farseekers; I can farseek Gevan on the scene; Gevan can you tell us what the situation is down there?
Gevan: [act]adopts a report tone[/act] Well, I'm standing outside the Obernewtyn farmhouse, at what seems to the scene of a ridiculously lame liberation attempt. The plot was foiled, in the early hours of the morning by a rather startled gaggle of geese who happened upon the libber by accident as they tried to leave the barn, and then sounded the alarm.
Ariadne: Oh no! Those poor geese! Are they okay?
Elspeth: [act]appears to be deep in thought[/act] The geese are fine.
Tanya: Well that’s good to hear.
Rushton: Indeed; they’re two weeks behind on their rent.
[act]everyone gives Rushton a look[/act]
Rushton: What? I thought we were all up for equal animal/human rights?
ways, Gevan’s speaking again. Sorry – could you repeat that?
Gevan: Well, it seems a number of piglets managed to escape, one of which is rumoured to be none other than the Destroyer Pig.
Emerald: So our worse fears are confirmed!
Elspeth: This is terrible! What are we going to do?
Rushton: Well, we shall need everyone to band together to and help us find these poor little lost piggies...and the Destroyer, before it's too late! [act]voices changes to concern[/act] Oh! I just can’t bear to think of them all alone out there!
Elspeth: Do you get this concerned when I go on expeditions?
Rushton: Eh – you’re a big girl.
Where are Rushton’s beloved Piggies?
The pigs have scattered themselves all over the site. Please help us round them up, they could be literally anywhere, and we can’t let them out on their own for too long!
Find as many pigs as you can and PM their locations to Elspeth
. Each pig you round up will score you a half a point.
Finding the Destroyer pig will earn you 2 points. You'll know which one is the destroyer, once you've happened upon it, as we're told it's distinctly different to all of the other pigs - in that it's evil. We'll let you know once they're all rounded up.
person to submit all the pigs (have a good guess how many there are :P ) will receive a bonus 5 points!
And, while the storyline will keep going, you will have until 24th August - Monday night 8pm AEST
to submit them.
Min: [act]sighs[/act] Why must stuff like this always happen around Moonfair?
