Anyone know where these logs are anymore?  I recently legended a thief and I would love to see some ideas on new stuff to do.
NEWS / July 17, 2022 --- New "Midsummer" Instance Event
« Last post by Anista on July 17, 2022, 10:57:46 PM »
At the height of summer, when the sun is at its hottest, the barriers
between elemental planes grow thin.

At these times it is common for druids to perform rituals to worship the
greater Elementals. However, there are reports of one such ritual going
horribly wrong in the Sandy Cove south of Balifor. If a rift between planes
has been opened there is no telling what might come through, and the
dangers it might represent to this world if left unchecked...

The seasonal Midsummer instance zone has a 24-hour lockout, meaning each
character can only enter once per 24 hours. There is also a 90 minute
'timeout' timer to complete an instance. Should players perish in the
instance, corpses will automatically be cast out of the rift after the
instance expires (approximately 5 minutes after being empty, or when the
'timeout' timer expires, whichever happens first.) The seasonal event will
be available for a few weeks while many of us remain indoors to avoid the
summer heat waves.

Thanks to Jorquin for creating this seasonal zone for us, with Alecto's
help on many room descriptions.

Congratulations are in order for the winners of Saturday's PvP tournament:

Winning the 2v2 tournament were Vra and Mosher! Hinde, Rahvin, and Belka
stepped away with the big win for 3v3s!

Following the exceptional tournament of blood and gore, a 'triple double'
weekend is on the horizon. Double experience, rank exp, and coins will be
enabled from Friday June 17th 12:00PM UTC to Sunday June 19th 11:59PM UTC.

Immortal applications are now open for those willing to set their mortals
and friends aside to contribute to the game. Do you have what it takes to
make an impact on ArcticMUD? (HELP IMM APP)

Last but not least, the next pwipe will be several months away, but
preparation is beginning soon. Please be sure to submit all your ideas,
bugs, and typos via the respective commands in-game; those will be
addressed on our development port over the next few months. With the new
wipe, we are expecting to introduce at least four new and/or expanded zones
of various difficulties. Expect to see some new creator names surface with
some of the new content.

Thanks for playing Arctic, and may you all die!

                 *** Tournament Announcement ***

Saturday June 11th, beginning at 5PM UTC (1PM EST, 10AM PST), we will be
hosting Player versus Player (PvP) tournaments for 2v2 & 3v3 matches.

 - Any level 28+ player can compete in either or both tournaments.
 - Bring your own gear.
 - Equipment will NOT be lost on death in the arena.
 - Items and containers will NOT frag in the arena.
 - Self-prep & group-prep spells are allowed in peaceful rooms upon entry
   to the arena.
 - No outside prep permitted. (i.e.: pre-buff, wands, scrolls, potions)
 - Use of "orbs" is restricted in tournament play.
 - Corpses and spirits will exist in the arena for those who need them.
 - Fights can be spectated by players. Check the signage in an inn of any
   major city on tournament day.

2v2 Specifics:
 - You may pick your own group member or we will attempt to pair you up
   with someone else as numbers allow.
 - Players MAY register a team of their own characters. (Multi allowed.)
 - No character swaps are allowed after the tournament has started.

3v3 Specifics:
 - Players may only register one character.
 - Pre-made teams are not allowed. Teams will be generated the day of
   the event.

If you plan to participate and know your team in advance, we ask you to let
us know your planned bracket(s) and group members ahead of time. The
deadline to register a team is Friday June 10th, 11:59PM UTC. To register
individually, or as a team, please DM @Bedal Brightblade in the official
Arctic MUD discord, email, or message a non-retired
immortal in-game to reserve your spot. Pre-registered players & teams must
check in with the immortal staff within 30 minutes of tournament kick-off
on Saturday June 11th.

Even if you do not enjoy participating in PvP, we still encourage you to
enter the contest to check out the hard work we've done on the automated
arena design and fight 'spectate' system. Everyone who competes in the
tournament will receive something in return. And, of course, the fiercest
gladiators will undoubtedly walk away with the largest prizes. No refunds.

May you all die,

Anista & Bedal
Join the Arctic Discord. You can play two characters at one time now. You can’t go wrong with any melee/cure class to start your journey back. Enjoy!
I've been out of the game for almost 20 years and thinking of returning for a bit while I sit around my house recovering from an injury. In as much as I knew how to lead any interesting zones or pop any interesting books or tablets or load anything of value, I've since forgotten it all. I do vaguely remember the sweet, sweet smells of Ramon's ham - but that's about it.

In your opinion, what's an ideal solo class for a casual, low-skill player such as myself?
