Kulan Explosion near RP Central
  Last Sunday evening, near RP Central, a large explosion occurred midair in a nearby field.  The explosion was completely unannounced and almost looked like a small nuclear explosion. I, being the curious 'roo that I am, went over quickly to investigate.

When I got there, I found Morticon, AliciaVulpnine, and Amy in the vicinity.  Morticon quickly darted off, not wishing to be questioned, leaving me with Alicia and Amy.  Alicia was the most talkative, saying that she had no idea what caused the explosion but that some plants from her hydroponic gardens she was carrying with her grew at a tremendous rate.  She plans to continue testing the area with her plants to see about further effects.

No word on if the SED was involved.
Newswire Sources Identity Of Retiring Wizzes A Mystery
  Citing Real Life obligations and lack of time, two of SpinDizzy's administrators have asked to be removed from their positions on the Wizstaff.  Which Wizzes are retiring have not been revealed. It has been stated that both Austin, and Findra are remaining in place.  The loss of this staff is not expected to cause more than a ripple in the smooth running of the muck, as both retiring Wizzes have been on so seldom that their absence as Wizzes will probably not be noted.

One source, who refused to be identified but knows those in power well, suggested that the retiring Wizstaff would be replaced by active members of the muck.  When asked who the replacements might be, it was stated that it would probably be furs who hang out often in the Rose Garden and are well known and liked by others. No further information was available other than that the replacements have no idea they have been picked.

This might explain the sudden flurry of active objects appearing in the Rose Garden, as the retiring and replacement Wizstaff is to be announced next week.
Argon Peace Banquet Not Peaceful!
  The highly touted 'Peace Banquet' by Morticon, local Wallaby and alleged leader of the SED, was held this Wednesday in Schmatt's banquet room.  Although most of the guests dove into the food like starving animals, some had the sense to wait and see if the food had any ill effects on them before eating any themselves.

Morticon, the host, started the banquet with a speech suggesting that he was turning away from evil and starting anew.  After the speech, the guests awoke and enjoyed Schmatt's fine meal.  A number of fine cuisines were served, and everyfur was enjoying themselves.  As the meal reached it's mid-point, Morticon again rose to speak and mentioned that other events such as this would be fun and suggested they be arranged.

At this point, with an evil smirk, Morticon called upon his 'Evil Ninjas' who promptly swarmed the room, and who were just as quickly defeated.  Escaping into the living room, he was trapped by Wakerudder and AlciaVulpnine.  Argon arrived and forced Morticon to drink some of his wine, which caused Morticon to puke.  In his weakened state, Argon was able to carry him by the scruff of the neck back into the banquet hall, where he forced him to apologize to his guests.  Morticon did so after much hesitation and willpower on his part.

As a side note, Max has a nice copy of Morticon's apology on tape.  He is selling dubs if the price is right.
Kulan Fill out your pinfo!
  It seems with all the influx of newcomers and those coming back from idle-purge land, that many have forgotten about a utility that could possibly keep you from having to explain your character's history over and over or even things about your player.  It may even make you a new friend or two!

This utility is called pinfo, and it may be accessed simply by typing 'pinfo character' for information on a specific character (for an example, 'pinfo austin').  To set your pinfo, type 'pinfo #help' for more information.  To learn more about each field and what command you use to set it, type 'pinfo #fields'.  If you can set flags or properties on objects, then you'll find this utility no problem.

Now go and fill them out! :)
Argon New Bunny Makes SpinDizzy Home
  This week, a new resident made her home here.  Lavender, a Bunny, has taken up residence near the downtown area.  Standing over five feet tall, she is pleasant, and fun to visit with, and has already made a lot of friends as she visits in the Rose Garden.  Lavender says that she got her name due to the slight purple haze reflecting off her fur in bright sunlight.

When asked how she found SpinDizzy, she replied that Findra, local Bunny, told her about the place.  As she lived far away before, she found the idea of living in a more populated area attractive.  When asked where she came from, she wrote, "Parents, of course!"

If you've visited with Lavender, you've noticed that rather than speaking, she communicates by writing on a notebook.  When asked why, she replied that she was born without a voice.  In spite of this, her 'written communication' is quite expressive, and she has no troubles making her points known. She has a friendly personality, and is a lot of fun.  Next time you see her, say hello, and welcome her to the community!

@Action News Info Guidelines and Procedure for Submitting Articles
>> Procedure for submitting an article:
 *  The newspaper building is located at Role Play Central (rpc).  When you
enter the building you will see a bulletin board.
 *  Go ahead and 'write' your story.  If you decide you don't want to write
one, hit .abort and forget about it.  Otherwise page 'newspaper' alerting
us that you wrote one when you finish pasting it in.
 *  An alternative to this is to page #mail newspaper with your story OR
 * We will edit it and tell you where you can look at it to make sure it wasn't mangled.  You can then p #mail the editor involved saying that it is ok.  Otherwise, suggest changes that should be made. If you trust the editors feel free to put something to the effect that you pre-approve the editing in your rough draft.
 * That's it!  It'll appear in the paper!
>> Guidelines for writing articles:
When writing articles for the paper...
 * Try and do some proofreading before submission.  That means spell check!
However, if you're no good at that sort of stuff, just send it as-is and the
editors will try their best.
 * No articles whose sole purpose is to flame someone.  You can use the SpinDizzy BB for
that ;)
 * Please strive for accuracy.  If they have time, the editors may check up on some of the quotes and perhaps the basic facts of the article.  Otherwise, it is assumed you did your best to write an accurate article.  If this is abused and inaccurate things are complained about, stricter rules may be put in place.
* Submitting your article anytime on Friday evening through the normal publishing date (Saturday night) will usually waive your right to review the edited version because of time constraints.  You will be contacted and informed but if you cannot get on before the publishing deadline to check your article it will be published regardless UNLESS you specify otherwise.
 * The editors' decisions are final.  This is not a wiz ran paper so do not
complain to them.  We can be reached by paging 'newspaper'.
 * Just about anything is published, so be creative!  It can be IC views on
RL topics, RPs that occurred around the MUCK, or most other things you can
think of.  You have creative license when it comes to documenting RPs, so
feel free to expound on the action, etc.  If you aren't sure if a story is
acceptable, page 'newspaper' and find out! :)
 * The AUP applies, so keep language and content acceptable.
  The End
