Happy 25th Anniversary to Ancient Anguish!
Happy 2017 to you all, and happy 25th anniversary to our beloved Ancient
Anguish! Yes, this is AA's silver anniversary. The game is now halfway to
50, and we are going to celebrate it all year long with fun and frivolity
the 25th of every month!
Activities may include parties, games, competitions, new project
installations, and other surprises.
And for those who'd like something a little more tangible from this
text-based world, we've got actual tiny pink elephants to share! If you
have participated in any 25th AAnniversary Event, feel free to send a
mailing address via mudmail to Luthien, and a mini ele will journey across
the world to you.
