Cammie's Story ~ The return of the Newbielympics!

With the recent influx of new exiles (I guess Mobius woke up on the wrong side of the bed, eh?) my hubby and I decided to bring back an event we remembered fondly, the Newbielympics. With the go-ahead and some help from members of Winds of Dawn, the event's originators, we were off! Let the games begin!

The first experiment in newbie torture, I mean, event! was the east town footrace. I regret that I have no sketches of the actual races, but for this and many of the events I was at the finish line holding my Official Looking Clipboard™. So I apologize for the lack of live action reporting! It came down to a Thoomdown between Ackkbar and Hoshi, with Hoshi winning. A very exciting start!

Purrfect made a very impressive showing in this event, collecting scents of 54 critters.

We spent a lot of time hangin out with dead guys. :P

Pralkon placed 3rd in the haiku contest. I hope he didn't try to use his prizes at the same time! =)

The overall winner of the 'lympics was Trowl, who made a very impressive showing and won a very impressive prize!

Photobucket

Well I'm sorry I don't have more sketches of the events, but I was runnin around like a headless chicken most of the time! :P If anyone has else sketches, I can be reached at cammiecat@yahoo.com :)

Finally, the event organizers decided to blow off a little steam in creative ways!

There was a big sign outside saying, "Danger!" Really, what else could we do??

Photobucket

Whee, I gots a parachute! T'was fun... til I landed on top of a big angry Orga. Oops!

A HUGE tanks to all who volunteered, donated to and participated in the Newbielympics! It wasn't easy, but I hope it turned out fun. :) I enjoyed getting to know the crop of new exiles, you guys are awesome!

Til next time,

Cammie's Story ~ A whole mess of hunts, part one!

(And it's, y'know, me, so the word "mess" should probably be taken literally. :D)

Apparently the Wendies have been gettin' busy in the foothills lately!

Large Angry Midnight Wendeckas should really not take fertility drugs. Yipes!

Photobucket

Twice I ranked right after falling. Is somebody trying to tell me something??

Next, the Open Hunt returned to the Barrens. Golly, I can't imagine why they call it that!

Photobucket

The last group didn't seem to fare too well. Hopefully we can do better!

Photobucket

I didn't do it, I swear!

Somehow we made it alive into the rebel base. They didn't attack, which I guess means we had gained esteem? (I am still a little fuzz-brained on the whole esteem thing, but I'm generally pretty fuzzy anyways!) It was neat to see the inside of the base, but they could really use a good decorator! Or... a decorator.

Finally, a look at Gandor and BKC brightening up a Foothills hunt with their new colored helmets. Pricey, but worth it I say! Lookin good! =)

Part two comin up!

Til next time,
