"From the ashes rise the Phoenix, stronger, given life anew . . ."


The Farside MUD is no more.  Rox and Snikt have parted ways over
philosophical differences, and from the virtual ashes of Farside a new
MUD has risen; Avatar. 

Avatar can be found at ifu.net 3000.  It's web page is now at
http://www.ifu.net/~avatar.  All of the players pfiles have remained
intact, as have all of the areas.  All of your favorite Immortals and
Heroes are still there.  Only the Implementor has changed, and the name.

If you have any questions that this editorial or Dizzy's note (next
article below) doesn't answer, please feel free to talk to an Immortal
or write a note on Avatar to Immortal, Senior, or Exec.  We'll be happy
to answer any questions that we can. 

We wish Rox and Harp well in any future endeavors they may enter into,
and welcome Snikt as the Implementor of Avatar! 

                   *         *        *  

The Farside Gazette is now The Avatar Gazette, and will still be
published every two or three weeks by AsaMaro.  Note however that the
listserv address is no longer working; you'll be getting the Gazette
straight from me, as you did for all but the last issue. 

Look for a new regular issue of the Gazette within a couple of weeks.  


Thanks for sticking with us through these changes!

TRANSMOGRIFICATION OF A MUD (Farside becomes A.V.A.T.A.R.)
===========================       (at ifu.net 3000)
by Dizzy

Today something remarkable happened in the world of On-Line Adventure 
Games: A.V.A.T.A.R. was born.  Players of FARSIDE (Merc 2.2 based MUD 
formerly at mud.atinc.com 3000) are already familiar with the Intensity, 
Excitement and unbridled Adrenalin Rush of our gaming anomaly called 
A.V.A.T.A.R.

Alas, Farside lives no more in its original incarnation.  Instead, out of 
the ashes of it's utopian chaos arises the phoenix of A.V.A.T.A.R. Farside 
players telnet to ifu.net 3000.  OLD FARSIDE PFILES REMAIN UNCHANGED! The 
old address no longer works, however you can still wander the wilderness, 
ruins, cities, and Twisted world at our new address: ifu.net 3000.


A.V.A.T.A.R. = Instant Gratification

We're back now! Sorry all, there was an outage on our service provider side (it seems) and that caused everything to go down.

doesn't seem to be a network issue as ping and traceroute respond pretty well.

No idea, guess it's more than a crash.
