Welcome to this months Silver Legion Periodical, this is a special edition
dedicated to Mabar, the Endless Night Festival.
Mabar, the plane of Endless Night, a realm of total darkness spills over into
our realm but once per year. The evidence of this can be found in Delera's
Graveyard where the dead walk again upon the land of Eberron and the
hero's of Stormreach attempt to send them back to the plane of Mabar.
Come, follow along as our Silver Legion guildies turn this time into a party
and a celebration of pumpkin heads!

Hello Fellow DDOers,
We are very happy to present to you our Mabar Edition to the Silver Legion
Periodical! You'll find screenshots and stories and anecdotes galore herein
as we ran around Delera's whacking undead. It seems the delay in the
opening of this year's Mabar festival did nothing to dampen our spirits
(HA! I kill me!) about the event or the opportunity to play Whack-a-
And just think ... more Mabar is right around the corner!

Self righteous they charge, weapons brandished high
We their victims scarce wakened from slumbers
With blinding flame and holy zeal afire
Bodies rise and fall in gruesome numbers
Dignity lost our shattered bodies fall
But when will we rest, the mob’s not yet done
They seek macabre trophies, opals from gall
Fingers, skulls, fangs, and dust from kings long gone
Ignoring our moans defilers pass by
Trading for motes, death bought glitters of doom
Slaying in darkness a jewel of the sky
Sated by trinkets, defiling our tombs
Mabar we curse, bodies back in the mire
Mabar we yearn, to again walk a while
On the first path south from the entrance to Delera's Graveyard, players can
find a memorial to Gary Gygax, co-creator of the original Dungeons &
Dragons game. Before his death in 2008, Gygax had become the Dungeon
Master narrator for most of the adventures found in Delera's Graveyard. A
similar memorial to co-creator Dave Arneson can be found in the Ruins of
Threnal wilderness area (where he also lent his voiceover as the Dungeon
Master narrator). The developers of DDO made end-rewards in memory of
both creators: the set items Voice of the Master and Mantle of the
Worldshaper. In subtle respect to the all-knowing dungeon masters, the
united set grants a player True Seeing. Courtesy of DDOWIKI.
Approaching the memorial an on screen message will appear, "Your soul is
filled with peace as you approach the memorial to a fallen hero - E. Gary
Gygax will never be forgotten."

Regina, the Queen of Pumpkin Chunkin, decided that the Sunday Morning
Static Group would look better as Pumpkin Heads.

Mabar left over "gifts".
Can you tell which toon is
Regina? If you guessed top hat and no
pumpkin or skull head, you'd be right.

When a pumpkin head just won't do then there's only one thing to do, grab a
skull head! Compliments of Regina, the Pumpkin Chunkin Queen, Long Live
All this pumpkin chunkin led to a new pastime for The Silver Legion guildies.
It was declared open season on all Stavlets, forever would a Stavlet be
condemned to wear a pumpkin head or at the very least a skull head.
Open Season on Stavlets.
The night was dark, damp, and dreary the undead were closing in fast.
When Stavowen spotted a damsel in distress wearing nothing but her
It was then that all the Stavlets fate was sealed. From then on through the
end of Mabar it became Stavlet season.
Everywhere he roamed a pumpkin head or skull head would pop up on his
head. He spied the lovely Jennelle standing quietly by a door and zap she
gave him a pumpkin head. From then on he was destined to wander
around Stormreach hiding from his opponents fixated on keeping his
pumpkin head on.
He feared that he would never get his beard dry again and that the musky
pumpkin scent would forever be his.
One day as he was killing skeletons and he needed a buff, he asked the now
fleshy Tinkere ever so kindly for help. She graciously gave him his buff and a
pumpkin head. Stav said that he was far too pretty and had a too high a
charisma score to wear such a beastly pumpkin head, it was beneath him.
His good pal Germi hunted Stav into the far corners of Stormreach biding
his time to catch an unaware Stavlet. Lo and behold he too pumpkined Stav
smack in the middle of the Searing Heights.
Stav thought he'd be safe on the ship. He opened the chest searching for a
nice prize and when he closed the chest once again he had a pumpkin for a
head, courtesy of Thurza.
If he went to a bank once a again a pumpkin head would appear. Again and
yet again the despised pumpkin head would appear. Soon all the squires got
in on the fun and they too gave Stavlets a pumpkin head. A few thought to
be different and gave him a skull head.
So Stavlets beware it is Stavlet season. Dooming Stavlets to wear a
pumpkin head forever more.

Taking on the undead - MilanR
If you ever wondered where the undead come from, well now you know. They
spawn from pumpkins like alien pods!
After a long day of sending the undead back to the plane of Mabar, the Lair
of Summoning opens and the battle to defeat the Spectral Dragon begins.
The only good Lag Dragon is a dead Lag Dragon -- isn't she precious?
Apparently even beholders aren't immune to the effects of a pumkin
grenade. I challenge you to keep a straight face when viewing the following
screenshots. Submitted by Tamberlyn
As the moon rises over Delera's Graveyard another Mabar, The Endless
Night Festival draws to an end. May the restless dead find peace for a while,
at least until Mabar once again returns to test our stamina and might.
