2009-02-22 [moira hawthorne]: hihi... Ill join in ofcourse... what you gonna name me?
2009-02-22 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooooooooo cooooool.... yes yes a Gallery where the winners of all the Unofficial contest can be displayed in one place would be an awesome idea... now I could be normal and name it The UNofficial Winners Galley but I think a name like The Bridh Gallery would be nicer... Bridh being goddess of Crafts and Arts
2009-02-22 [moira hawthorne]: ps... is my name suppose to be
Lady of Convenstead, Mistress of Caledon or
Lady of Covenstead, Mistress of Caledon?
2009-02-22 [LynnAnneBrown]: It is Lady of Covenstead, Mistress of Caledon. I have also corrected it in the text of the wiki. Thankyou. I love that you are an editor.....
2009-02-22 [moira hawthorne]: what you think of the gallery name?
2009-02-22 [LynnAnneBrown]: Do you have any thoughts on it?
2009-02-22 [moira hawthorne]: well I did... but your name is awesome too.. and you made the wiki so Id say go for it
2009-02-22 [LynnAnneBrown]: I'd really like to hear your name before I settle on it. Because it still early enough in the story to change it without trowing anything off.
2009-02-22 [LynnAnneBrown]: Sorry, I must need more coffee, somehow I missed your suggestion before. and I love "Bridh
2009-02-22 [LynnAnneBrown]: I like the changes, what think you?

2009-02-23 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooo you went with the Bridh gallery.... I love your evocation.... I think Bridh will be most pleased!!! (but what was the name of the first gallery you choose? ... I had it on watch but its one of thousands... and being so tired this weekend with sick child)

FOX FAERY BUTT PIRATE!!! WITH XSPECIAL SPIDER POWERS! *
OH and OFCOURSE MY FAV BOW HARTWOOD * * *
2009-02-24 [LynnAnneBrown]: I have rewritten the opening scene, I hope you like it. If you have anything you want to add or change, please go ahead.
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: Ill just edit some little stuff... but its a great beginning!
2009-02-24 [Madhalf Heatlump]: What is required of me in said position? Or positions lol
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: oooooh you can use your imagination! *wink*
2009-02-24 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Well I guess the first thing I'll do is become the part....
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: yes yes... and if you are any good at map making stake your claim on some land.... if not... tell me and Ill help you... we need wicked to choose where she wants her home...
2009-02-24 [Madhalf Heatlump]: There's a map somewhere? lol
2009-02-24 [LynnAnneBrown]: I got a response from wicked saying the net in her area is acting up like nuts and that she is going to make it in as often as possible. I think that I will rewrite it slightly to fit the story. I will turn the problems with the net into roadwork, or a bridge washing out, or something. I am going to give it some thought as I archive the maps.
Here is the text of the letter I will be adapting.
I would also love to help in anyway possible. The net's been screwy here, but other than that I'm usually a dedicated Elftowner. ><;;; I'll be on as often as possible.
Sincerely [wicked fae mage] Maiden of Covenstead
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: sure... sounds great... I hope she can be online soon tho and state her claim in Covenstead
2009-02-24 [LynnAnneBrown]: Me too, I will send her a note, letting her know about the work we are doing on the map and inviting her to make her claim.
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: maybe you should email her the updated map...
2009-02-24 [LynnAnneBrown]: That's a very good idea, Thanks
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: better send her the one I just updated... she may like the windy stream...
2009-02-24 [moira hawthorne]: where on the map is the great oak? up by the road and Bridh's galley an Odin inn... or down by your home?
2009-02-25 [moira hawthorne]: updated the map... again...
2009-02-25 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Nyah nyah nyah me too lol
Just let me know if Faerffolke Woods is too big (I'm a little greedy lol)
2009-02-25 [moira hawthorne]: big house! hey Ill move it to the map page tho..,
2009-02-25 [Madhalf Heatlump]: I need the room for all the beautiful Nymphs to stay in when required... ;)
2009-02-25 [moira hawthorne]: well you are right on one of the streams so they shouldnt have any problem getting to their fav satyr
2009-02-25 [Madhalf Heatlump]: *shwing* ;)
2009-02-25 [Rebulous]: I'd love to be a part of this, but I'm not sure what I could contribute. I wouldn't mind having a simple little hovel or tent in-between the clothing optional beach and the mouth of the river. I suppose I could care for plants and trees - sort of a gardener, if this place could use such a person. Or I could just hang out (no pun intended) at the beach all day long. I could even just stand in the middle and fly a kite and wave cheerily at passersby.
2009-02-25 [moira hawthorne]: which stream? the one closes to my place or raven's?
2009-02-25 [Araglas]: this is very interesting!!! I like it! ^^
2009-02-25 [moira hawthorne]: hey hi there!
2009-02-25 [LynnAnneBrown]: Lets see. What could Rebulous offer to our little tribe. Good Company to start with, and that is always welcome. Lovely photographs, A garden, what a brilliant idea, What would a community be without a place to get it's food and medicine. And I think that you will need a little more than a hovel if you are going to set up a Holistic Practice here. Imagine what you would like to have if you could set up a healing center and I will help you with building.
Think about it, wouldn't it be nice to go somewhere and get your treatment. Take a sauna if it would help. Have a theraputic hot tub. A comfortable room, where folks don't mind waiting.
And I suspect that where you are thinking of, down by the lake would be a great place for both the gardens and healers cottage. Right next to all the action next to the Nikkid Beach. Of course you'll probably want to hone up on that old "Burnt Butt" for all those Nikkid People who are sure they can jump all the way to the otherside of that bonfire.
2009-02-25 [Rebulous]: Ohhhh yes, I like these ideas! A herbal garden. Yes. And a Holistic Practice. A Healing Centre. A fine start I should thinkest.
2009-02-25 [LynnAnneBrown]: Hello Araglas, Welcome to Covenstead, make yourself at home.
2009-02-26 [moira hawthorne]: I think Araglas should be Master of Foxes! lol
2009-02-26 [Araglas]: Thank you LadyRavenLynn I will!! ^_^
Lol Master of Foxes? lol
2009-02-26 [moira hawthorne]: a pagan friendly version of the fox hunt... more like hide and seek with craftey foxes leading a merry chase... just an idea...
2009-02-26 [LynnAnneBrown]: Oh I love it absolutely, I know folk who just love bein chased, till they let someone catch them, it should be fun. So would you like that Araglas? To be Master of the Foxes.
2009-02-26 [Araglas]: Lol of course! That sounds like a merry idea! I do love a good game of hide and seek...I was champion of my family! lol till they found my hiding spot under the bathroom sink lol
2009-02-26 [Araglas]: I like that! ^_^ I would be honored!!
2009-02-26 [Araglas]: One question though!! Are we talking here or editing up there?
2009-02-26 [moira hawthorne]: best is the wiki... here is for other casual talk... but if Raven likes something she adds it above
2009-02-26 [LynnAnneBrown]: But one thing I can say, is that now we have ourselves comfortably moved down here. I wouldn't mind figuring out to make the wiki so it's as inviting as it can be.
I ask each of us, what would we like to see up there and what we could do to make it that way.
I'll start off
I really like having the latest map right here at the gatepost. So that newcomers can get a quick scan of what is going on and who is playing here. I was thinking that it would be cool if the legend of the map could take you to the place that you were going. I know how to write wikimg code and that allows the builder to make picture links to other places. So if the Legend was broken down into smaller pictures, laid them out in a table, and code them with a wikiimg tag so that clicking them will take you to the place they represent. Now I am not sure if it is time to do that yet or to wait until people start building in the places that the links would lead them, but if people want to do this, I'll show them how easy it is to write the code into the pictures
I also think that image hyperlinks would be a nice way to move from on place another in ElfTown anyway.
Now I'd like to here from the rest of you
2009-02-26 [moira hawthorne]: the *contest* have to play out...
2009-02-26 [LynnAnneBrown]: Oh I was just thinking of giving her a pretty face, a drawing or something to be the first page banner. I sketching something loose out right now.
2009-02-26 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooh... yes... that would be awesome
2009-02-26 [LynnAnneBrown]: Yah I am not a big fan of landing on pages that the only thing one them, is a few words saying "Under Construction" or Like I did "this will be the future home of" What I put there is only a quick place holder, A suggestion of what I would like to see, but I think Bridh was happy for the attention.
2009-02-26 [moira hawthorne]: cant do everything at once... the best things take ytime
2009-02-26 [LynnAnneBrown]: They do at that.
2009-02-26 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Mi mi mi mi mi..... *ahem* mi mi mi mi
Covenstead should definitely be getting a song...
2009-02-27 [LynnAnneBrown]: In the meantime we can listen to Mystic Us
Thankyou [Madhalf Heatlump] for sharing you song
2009-02-27 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Happy to share my music :)
2009-02-27 [moira hawthorne]: awesome!
2009-02-28 [Araglas]: Wow! This place is really growing! I can't wait for it to get even bigger!
Yes i think Covenstead needs music!! ^_^ Music makes everything better...excep
2009-02-28 [LynnAnneBrown]: Yes but eating while listening to music is delightful
2009-02-28 [Araglas]: lol yes it is!!! ut everyone I know says everything is better with bacon, so if two things that make everything better go together I would think it woulodn't be very good
2009-02-28 [LynnAnneBrown]: I've been up playing by the gate again. Made some changes. I think it will be more inviting like this. What do you think?
2009-02-28 [LynnAnneBrown]: I just started Covenstead Page 2 so that we can continue telling our story there. And for this part I'd like to invite folk to be more active in the top side of the wiki. If you feel comfortable doing this on your own go ahead. If you could use some help, Just Ask.
2009-03-02 [LynnAnneBrown]: I made a drawing of The Bridh Gallery, or at least one of the buildings that would be part of it. It's a bit rough but I like the idea.
What I thought might be fun is to get folk to give their description of what they think different places in Covenstead would look like. The descriptions could be in the form of Words, Drawings, Photo's of things and places that would fit nicely, and any else that is not coming to mind at the moment.
I think it could be a lot of fun.
2009-03-02 [moira hawthorne]: I love it! ... hummm... I got to design my home...
2009-03-02 [Araglas]: thats really beautiful!! ^_^
2009-03-02 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Hmmmmmmmm..... very nice and apparently inspiring :)
2009-03-03 [Lord Dog]: Nice place good luck with it, folks
2009-03-03 [LynnAnneBrown]: Thankyou Sir Humbledwarf.
2009-03-06 [LynnAnneBrown]: A new version of "The Bridh Gallery" Drawing
2009-03-07 [moira hawthorne]: a great improvement... I love the flowers and stones... but a path up... or two steps would be awesome... and for some reason I loved the dark bluey green outline of the trees of the previous one
