Announcement: Merry Day of Significant Holiday Meaning To Your Particular Lifestyle! No significance to you? Get in here, friend, you can have a happy regular day too! We love you all (okay, we love MOST of you) and hope you have the very best day possible.

Announcement: And with that, this year's Combat Day has come to a close. Thanks to all who participated. Those who came back from out of local space should prepare to be sent back.

Announcement: Miriani is now old enough to obtain a driver's permit (in some states)! To celebrate another annual existential crisis, we will join together in camaraderie for yet another Combat Day. Like it or hate it, this is the time for everybody to engage in player versus player combat in space with no risk to their wallet. Ship stores will be giving away one-person Contenders to anybody who asks for one. Simply take this free ship, launch into space, find another Contender, and fight to the death! The destruction of your opponent earns you one point, while your own destruction loses you a point. For every hour you don't fire a shot, you'll lose a point as well. You can see your points by typing COMBATDAY and see other people's standings by typing @COMBATDAY (note the @ symbol in that one). If you're out of communications range and have a thirst for violence, you're in luck! You can type COMBATDAY to deposit yourself back in comms. Finally, to adequately celebrate, communicators can be out of character for the duration of Combat Day. Oh, one more thing. If there is interest in players crewing two Leviathans and fighting to the death, do let us know. Good luck and have fun!

Announcement: Hello shining happy people. This is a reminder to get your gift requests in to Santa by midnight GST tomorrow, December 15. If you have had your gift request rejected from today on, you've got a few days yet to send in your letters. Happy Christmas, the war is over.

Announcement: Hello friends. Please see message board post 97813. A lot of you have been requesting gifts that go directly against the rules this year, and we'd really like to put a stop to that. In short, we will not fill gift requests that require points to get otherwise or things that require coding of new systems. Going forward, any such request that comes through will be rejected and the person will likely lose the ability to request anything this year. Thank you.

Announcement: Regarding gift requests, we will, as a matter of course, automatically reject any request for items that can be made by players in a tradesman lab. Sorry to the people who happen to be out of local space or out of communications range, but this is to help preserve what little sanity the elves have left.

Wishing a very happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate! We are incredibly grateful for the life and character you bring to Miriani. After all, it is each of your individual personalities that brings every world in this text-based game to life. Thank you!

Announcement: The holiday season is upon us! If you missed the announcement on your message boards, post 97813 has all the details for getting a special request in to the jolly old elf himself. Please pay close attention to the rules, as they have changed slightly this year. Happy holidays!

Announcement: Oh, to further clarify: Out of character day is typically only meant for communication purposes. In character actions, such as shooting things you shouldn't shoot, will still carry normal consequences and no refunds will be given. Stay safe! Stay in school!
