Thumbs Up Dwarf Stacking and Fun Run in Great Divide
Posted by: Mechaike - 09-18-2020, 02:13 PM - Forum: News - No Replies

Continuing tradition, community members gathered to hold an event as old as time itself.  We spoke with today’s fun run leader, Pith, who hosted the event.

Pith says ‘Dwarf have odd magic.  Stack many same place.  More than count.  Me call them PILE.’




Pith says ‘Zrelik is boss.  Point to spot, PILE moves.  PILE turns giants into bloody snow.’  Pith beams a smile.



Pith says ‘Many friends also help.  Good time.’


We’re still kicking here, actively raiding everything that’s worth our time!  Some of the lesser events like the Coldain Ring War (Coldain Ring #10) end up being offnight fun.  It’s always a good time to drop in the forum to say hello and relive the magic of EQ on our new home, TAKP!

  Herpetologists union local #420 newsletter
Posted by: Mechaike - 07-20-2019, 01:24 PM - Forum: News - No Replies

Greetings everyone!  We are writing to give a brief update to our membership on our latest endeavor- the ongoing cull of invasive species in Ssraeshza Temple.

About 6 months ago, members reported that a species originally slated for extermination on Norrath somehow not only evaded destruction, but had escaped to Luclin.  To make matters worse, their population grew enormously, and now the nesting area is massive.  We're calling on all of our members to contribute and provide their services in the area to keep the Shissar population under control.

Yours in the danger noodle brotherhood
Local #420

PS- If any members find a creative use for the leavings, please post photos!

If you're considering a visit back to Everquest here on TAKP, this is a great time:
  1. Raid mobs are predictably rotated, so we have a google calendar to help you maximize your play time.
  2. We're well into Luclin (new spells, Vex Thal, lots of AA, etc.) with solid strats for everything.
  3. Highly active mains are reaching saturation of common drops.  Returning and new mains will gear up fast.
  4. There's a revamped alt loot system to keep things interesting for your favorite pet alt.
  5. Planes of Power is in active development.  Help make the content the best possible experience by weighing in.

Thumbs Up Haute couture madness sweeps across Norrath

Haute couture madness sweeps across Norrath
---Associated Free Wood Elf Press
It’s been some time since the embargo was lifted between Norrath and Luclin.  We traveled around the world to get a feel for what changed for our citizens.  I saw many screenshots and the corresponding stories and about vacations, mission trips, and special booze.  What was surprising is that nearly everyone talked about fashion.
Luclin has its fair share of exclusive fashion destinations, but there are two notably difficult to access boutiques- Ssraeshza Temple (Emperor’s room), and Vex Thal.
Apparently getting access to the room where the magic happens in Ssraeshza Temple involves extensive effort to get not one or two, but FOUR key parts to buzz you into the room.  Even after you buzz in, the designer, Emperor Ssraeshza has a team of bouncers and assistants that have to be distracted for long periods in order for you to shop in peace.
I could hardly believe what people were saying.  This sounded like an absurd amount of effort for clothing.  So I went to see what I could learn about Vex Thal.
Vex Thal is a sort of fashion resort with over a dozen designers tucked away in the middle of nowhere, with strict demands for entry.  Not only do you have to already be a patron of Emperor Ssraeshza, but you also must gather trinkets from across the moon to create yet another key!  Despite the barriers just for entry, people line up for the chance to enter.  Even after entering, there are literally dozens of bouncers for every designer that must be avoided or dealt with.
I asked a few recent shoppers about their recent trips to Luclin’s most exclusive boutiques:
Magician Starsha had this to say: ‘This necklace from Aten Ha Ra makes my bazongas look even more amazing!  I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.’
Druid Mechaike winked and muttered ‘This ring from VT not only looks baller, but it helps me light things up.  I got some dope kicks from Emp too.’
Shaman Ziva said ‘The fabrics and construction they use are really top notch.  No matter your shape, the fit is amazing!  Even this party mask from Ms. Aten is comfortable.’
Everyone that has been to either location comes away singing their praises.  Some frequent shoppers mentioned that the stock on offer is variable, occasionally leading to disappointment, but that the chance for that special something keeps them coming back for more.
Maybe it’s worth the trouble after all.
---Reporting from the treetop city of Kelethin.

Ridiculous fiction aside, Temerity is deep into Luclin content, with more than 15 Emp kills and 17 Aten Ha Ra kills.  There’s plenty for new and returning players here to experience here on TAKP.  Join us again!

Question TAKP: SVU
Posted by: Mechaike - 07-23-2018, 09:44 PM - Forum: News - Replies (1)

This story has some recommended listening.  Click the links!

In the Norrathian justice system, reptile-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Shadow Haven, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Snake Victims Unit. These are their stories…
NotElliot tells the group, ‘Looks like we got our first lead.  Meet me at The Bazaar.’
You have entered The Bazaar.
NotIceT tells the group, ‘I’ve been to some rough areas, but this is up there…  These people are on display like meat.’
NotOlivia tells the group, ‘Let’s canvas the area to see what we can find out.  Someone has to know something.’
NotOlivia is browsing your wares.
Disaster tells you, ‘That’ll be 1pp per Fetid Essence.’
Disaster tells you, 'That'll be 100pp per Dirty Goblin Parchment.'
NotOlivia says, ‘We’re looking for information.  Have any of your recent clients involved snakes in any way?’
Disaster panics and screams.
Disaster says, ‘No, nothing like that!  Stay away from me!’ and runs to the zone line.

NotElliot is browsing your wares.

Striptease tells you, ‘That’ll be 1000pp for a Lap Dance.’

Striptease tells you, ‘That’ll be 5000pp for a Bun Squeeze.’

Striptease says, ‘Bun Squeeze popular.  You buy!’
NotElliot says, ‘We are investigating a series of homicides where snake scales were left behind at the crime scene.  You know anyone with snake troubles lately? ’
Striptease says, ‘Looks free but boring.  You buy!’
NotIceT says, ‘Ma’am, we are serious.  Lives are on the line.  If you know anything, please tell us.’
Striptease raises an eyebrow at NotIceT.

Striptease looks very uncomfortable.

Striptease tells you ‘I not animal tamer.  But have heard things.’

Striptease writes a short note and tucks it in her hair.

Striptease says, ‘Bun Squeeze always satisfies.  You buy!’
NotIceT has purchased one Bun Squeeze for ( 5000p).

NotIceT says, ‘Thanks.’
Striptease grins.

NotElliot tells the group, ‘So what did your little squeeze tell you?’

NotIceT glares at NotElliot.

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Our informant's note had this to say: Sneks always have snek friends.’

NotElliot tells the group, ‘That is supposed to be our tip?’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘Snake friends…  Maybe we’re going about this the wrong way.  Let’s split up.  I’m headed for Qeynos Hills to start.  NotIceT, you take Misty Thicket and East Karana.  NotElliot, check in with forensics on the snake scales and see if there’s an update.'

You have entered Misty Thicket.
NotIceT says, ‘Hail, a moss snake.’
[no reply]
You have entered East Karana.
NotIceT says, ‘Hail, a bullnose snake.’
[no reply]
NotIceT says, ‘Hail, a chasm crawler’
[no reply]
NotIceT tells the group, ‘I am striking out so far.  Maybe you guys will have more luck.  Heading back to Shadow Haven.’

You have entered North Qeynos.
NotOlivia says, ‘Hail, a grass snake.’

NotOlivia says, ‘I’ve heard that snakes have lots and lots of friends.  I have to say I’m a little jealous…

A grass snake smiles.

A grass snake says, ‘Yeah, we’re pretty awesome.’

NotOlivia says, ‘It must be hard to keep in touch with everyone.’

A grass snake nods.

A grass snake says, ‘Some like to guild up.  Personally, I like writing letters.  There’s an endless supply of idio..err players that will take paper all over the planet for nothing but some faction.  Snek pals best pals.’

NotOlivia says, ‘Writing, huh.  Not many take the time required for that anymore.  For that matter, how do you even hold a pen?’

A grass snake says, ‘Very carefully.  Especially since penmanship is a point of pride for snakes’

NotOlivia says ‘Wow.  By chance do you know anyone from far away?  With so many snek pals you must know people everywhere!’

A grass snake says, ‘Let me think.  I think the furthest away pen pal said he was in a temple commune somewhere…’

You have entered The Lab.
Not Elliot says, ‘Hail Labrat.’

Labrat says, ‘Ah.  You must be here about the snake scales.  Long story short, these scales don’t match any species on Norrath.
NotElliot tells the group, ‘The lab finished the analysis.  We need to meet back in Shadow Haven and fast.'

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Ok, on my way’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘Likewise.’

You have entered Shadow Haven.
NotIceT tells the group, ‘I struck out in Misty Thicket and East Karana.  I hope you guys had some success.’

NotElliot tells the group, ‘The lab results are in.  These snake scales from the crime scenes aren’t from any species of snake located on Norrath’

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Weird.’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘I know where we need to go.  I made a new snake friend with lots of pen pals a--'

NotElliot tells the group, ‘Wait, what??’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘As I was saying, this snake has lots of pen pals, and one is in a temple commune.  There’s only one possible place in Luclin that fits that description.’

NotIceT snaps his fingers.

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Ssraeshza Temple!’
Note to the audience.  There is a toon named Oliviabenson which I did not create for this Smile
