    Since it may be a while before Xorartep gets chance to sing it, I'll post the lyrics. Hope you like it. Tune of 'Do you know the way to San Jose', obviously.

    Do you know the way to Skara Brae?
    I've been away so long. I may go wrong and lose my way.
    Do you know the way to Skara Brae?
    I'm going back to find some peace of mind in Skara Brae.

    Luna was a great place to stay.
    Bought a hundred things from near and far
    Artifact, maybe two, to boost my AR
    Britain through to Cove. how quick they passed
    To Minoc Gate past Vesper shore
    On Trinsic dock and travelling fast

    Do you know the way to Skara Brae?
    They've got a lot of space. there'll be a place where I can stay
    I was born and raised in Skara Brae
    I'm going back to find some peace of mind in Skara Brae.

    Doom and Malas were a magnet.
    Dungeons called me with their darkest foes
    With a sword in my hand I faced them alone.
    Now I'm weary of the constant fray
    I'm headed home, I need to go
    I packed my bag and start today

    I've got lots of friends in Skara Brae
    Do you know the way to Skara Brae?
    Can't wait to get back to Skara Brae.

    Is Wishy recording a version?
     
  5. Guest

    Guest Guest

    erm, since AFAIK Wishy doesn't yet know it exists it's a bit soon to say.

    I tend to work on the assumption that just because someone does something once doesn't mean they'll want to do it again.

    Heya, thought you guys might appreciate this.

    It's my entry into an April Fool's contest that got me into a fit of nostalgia about UO.

    Enjoy!

    Umh.. it´s not quite done yet:

    Have you ever been to Trinsic City,
    near the Ocean, down?
    Have you seen the famous rivers meetin´
    and all the views of that fine town?
    Have you heard about her beauties,
    have you heard about her pain?
    Oh, that´s my Trinsic - where I remain

    Take a sight of Paladin´s Garden,
    cross Gate-Bridge and King´s Avenue
    The Barrier Isle Lighthouse,
    see the Fisher Huts in view
    Walk along Garrison Street
    Up to the Barrack´s Hall
    Oh, that´s my Trinsic - I can´t recall

    But don´t forget the Dockland people,
    and the office of Sea´s Sons
    Walk into the Shades,
    feel the anger and the pains
    See the mothers with their little babies,
    and the big crowd on the prowl
    Oh, that´s my Trinsic - my heart and soul

    ...

    got a little bit of snow here that keeps on falling but its not really settling well, too wet already.
     
  18. We had about 1/8 of an inch at 7:30 (a disaster by Romsey standards)
    My town lies sheltered in the Test valley surounded by hills which take the brunt of it and protected by the Isle of Wight to the south.
    We very rarely see snow, which is a bugger cos, I quite like to see it.
    The dog was slightly puzzled this morning, first time he has seen any.

    4" of white stuff on the ground in London and it's still falling intermittently. Usually we see a light covering for a few nanoseconds before it becomes grimy, grey sludge.

    My 5yr old daughter is suddenly mad keen on making snowmen. Thanks to the neighbours teen lads, she now thinks snowmen come with Jordan-esque proportioned ta-ta's as standard...Thanks lads. [​IMG]

    intermittant blizzard conditions here, with a bitter, very lazy, 30mph wind. we're also having hail. with the wind, this means ballistic hailstones that really hurt when they hit you. the goats have refused to come out of their shed, and demanded a big pile of hay in lieu of grass. the cats came running to the barn door, stopped dead, and then back pedalled at speed! the dog is too stupid to care, and is out there boucing about and getting covered. the ducks are still in their shed, one sat on eggs, her mate at the door doing his big tough man act. i'm going to light the fire and put a movie on for the kids [​IMG]

    Went out earlier, we had to literally shovel the snow away from the garage.....Oh hindisght, when will I learn:)
     
  23. Hello and good morning all!!! How was your weekend? Hope it was nice!
    We had a good time back at our parents place, joined the annual "Neutenschaiten" competition (shooting nuts, not as bad as it sounds! [​IMG] [​IMG]) of the Grunniger Verain (sp?) they are in again. Erik did not bad finishing at +18 and 3rd place, Niels however finished last at -116! Hehehehe.

    Hello all you nice babble-people!

    It's official: I love the recent event! And here is why ...

    My t-hunter Shaney is obsessed with level 5 t-maps. Level 1 - 3 are too boring, level 4 spawn ogre lords and they take forever to kill (at least for Shaney), and level 6 ... well, after the latest changes to the AWs they are certainly beyond his skills. Level 5 are PERFECT to solo, lots of fame to sacrifice, lots of gold and regs. But he ran out of maps a long time ago, and they are rarely sold on vendors. Along came the new event. Shadow wisps and their paragon chests are a god-send, especially since most people don't bother with them and just let them lie around. So now Shaney is stealthing around the-other-Moonglow collecting chests like a madman. I got about 25 maps over the few hours I played at the weekend, which guarantee even more hours of fun!!

    Thank you event people and fellow player people for leaving the chests out for me!!

    *grins happily*
