Come to the party, hey? TriadCity’s eerily creepy Asylum in the NorthEastern Third is now accepting patients, whether they like it or not. We invite you to join them during two upcoming weekends: October 24th - 25th, and October 31st - November 1st. Just in time for Halloween! Check out the MOTD for more info:

================================ Milestones =========================

Over 3,000 Likes for the TriadCity Facebook page. Holy moly! Our little page, all grown up!

And: over 1,000 Followers on Twitter. Nice!

========================= News of the Universe ========================

Recalls for Reward Points! Found yourself way stuck in some confusing, forlorn place? Zap your lost ass back to the Origin Stone. At 10 Reward Point it’s not super cheap. And there are side effects. But then, emergency measures aren’t routine, eh?

Catch a Glint! OK it’s silly but it turns out to be oddly fun.

TriadCity’s hypermodern talking client now works happily on Chrome. This means Windows and Mac users are all welcome to the party. Intended for blind and visually-impaired players, the talking client speaks all output: no scrolling text, menus, buttons, or other visual impediments. No screen reader required. Enhancements requested by users are added frequently. Turns out many sighted players use it, too. Check it out!

A new Author command now allows you to find out who wrote the Zone you currently occupy.

========================== News of the World =========================

The NorthWestern Third has a new inn: La Posada Coyoacan, an old roadside hotel in the Mexican country style, adobe and tile and vibrant color. There’s quite a lot of new construction in the neighborhood. Watch the MOTD for details.

A more or less Las Vegas version of the popular wheel of fortune game "Big Six" is now available in Virtual Vegas, for your Dinar-wasting pleasure. Don’t assume you’ll always lose! Anyway that’s what management wants you to do.

TriadCity's eerily creepy Asylum in the NorthEastern Third is now accepting patients, whether they like it or not. Written by master builder Stoker, The Asylum is several stories of mundane evil: the everyday evil of bureaucracy, incompetence, and good intentions gone bad. It’s entirely possible things aren’t all what they seem. Are you sure you’re feeling alright?

The NorthWestern Third's Paseo del Rio colony is online and ready for visitors. Paseo del Rio is a small urban agricultural collective growing fruit which they distribute to merchants and communes throughout the Third. As the Third evolves, you'll see more of these experiments in collective ownership and communal living, sometimes with very contrasting philosophies.
