    I'm dreaming of a blue Risia
    Just like the once I never used to know
    Where the tree tops glisten and halflings listen
    to hear bladeforged in the snow

    I'm walking in the air...
    Floating in the sky..

    We're walking in the air
    With skates upon our feet, we fly
    For coins of purp and blue, we flounder through the sky.

    We're skating down the ramp..
    I'm gliding and I grab a blue
    The purple's so darn close, I need it badly too..

    *interlude*

    The Jester now has gone
    The Ice games now are here, for me
    To make my icy burst, a wonder it will be..

    Risia.. icy burst.. recipies I need..
    Lowbie weaps... for my TR... Some kobolds gonna bleed!!

    I'm turning in my coins..
    The randomness it makes me cry...
    I miss 1 recipe, and lost my heart to try

    **interlude**

    Somebody.. please sell me..
    What I need so bad..
    Icy burst.. for my sword..
    It drives me mad...

    I got my icy burst!
    My lowbie weapon now is done....
    And now I go TR..
    It's time to have some fun!!!

    IMHO, the best time to just wander around the Harbor and simply admire the scenery...

    Confused.

    In the past, a database switch was turned on/off, now it is server reboot to activate?

    BTW, an unintended feature of this, was that if you happened to hit a lighter than air spot just as the games were turned off, you could fly around the public instance of the harbor and get to spots way up there. Sadly, this feature went away if you entered a dungeon, changed harbor instance(harbor 1 to harbor 2), changed instance(marketplace, Inspiratation, teleported), or logged out of the game.

    Probably due to the barter interface on the new Jack Frost and Risia Altar. It's never been live before.

    Just curious why this wasn't combined with the maintenance yesterday? It seems like it would be a good idea to avoid downtime when possible.

    Just wondering.

    well, i just logged on, and went to house K to restock some pots.... and if what i see is any indication... you may have gotten your wish, Mem.

    Better then nothing.

    I know I'd just love to see the Market Tent all winterized, and what not.

    Yay! Need moar icy burst kits! Moar moar moar! Need them on all my ghostbanes!
    Ordinary humans have inhibitions that serve as a buffer against what we know is bad behavior.
    However, some people, by blaming others for their own bad behavior, develop a thought pattern that allows them to override self-control in order to achieve a selfish end.
    - My opinion on exploiters and cheaters blaming SSG for unfair punishment.
