November 22, 2009


It’s November and a lot has happened in Urbanville. First, we here at the Chronicles would like to extend a congratulations to Iron Pants and Afro Chic for their marriage.  Love, feh.  It is a wasted emotion if you ask me but I guess we should celebrate two people coming together to waste time.  Quick, someone sterilize Afro Chic or soon we will have another Surfer Chick.

Other than that, there is more gear, more sidekicks, more ways to have fun.  If you are into that sort of thing.  I am not.  For obvious reason.

The Chronicles have morphed into a monthly newsletter and suddenly the staff feels happier.  We might keep it this way.  Perhaps we could receive more stories if the staff only has to worry about 1 due date per month.  We will see.  Thank you to everyone who has participated for this month.  It is appreciated as much as my cold heart allows me to appreciate it.

Feh,

The Masked Editor

Urbstrology

Neptune goes direct on the fourth which will trigger mass confusion. There will be a certain mental fogginess making us absent-minded and forget how to do routine activities. The future will seem uncertain, but don't worry! During this time we will be able to see how our old ways of dealing with issues are failing. We now have the opportunity to respond with new energy to get through the challenges ahead. Next month will bring inspiration and personal epiphanies.

Saturn moves into Libra for the next 2 1/2 years and brings our focus on relationships. Now is the time for taking responsibility for our relationships. It will be hard not to be overwhelmed by the negative aspects that will rise to the surface of our attention. However, by acknowledging our short comings and taking charge of our relationships, we can create more harmonious connections with others.

Saturn in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn this month which will put the spotlight on how we deal with finances. It's important to place emphasis on integrity and practical solutions in order to gain the stability of our finances and working relationships.

On a more light-hearted note, Jupiter conjoins Chiron and Neptune in Aquarius bringing about a feeling of good fellowship. It's a good month for personal connections, group activities, and taking part in the global community in order to affect positive change.

From the 9th to the 16th, the Sun in Scorpio squares the aforementioned conjunction which will bring to light the importance of considering the hopes and dreams of other people in order to gain feelings of security for ourselves.

As always, the New Moon is the best time to plant the seeds of our own hopes and dreams. The New Moon this month occurs at 1:15pm U.S.T. on the 16th, so write down up to 10 wishes on the afternoon or evening of that day. Since the moon will be in Scorpio, think along the lines of transformation, courage and integrity.

Example wishes:

1. I want to find myself easily forgiving others in a constructive and healing way.

2. I want to find the courage in a happy way, to make positive changes in my life.

3. I want to easily be more aware of others in order to strengthen my relationships.

Twisted powers of super heroes with a scent of humour

Strength: The waves from her Rip Tide become full of neo-energy, making her super shinny.



Vulnerability: The fury of the seas make her eyes cry like an onion.

Music Contest

Hey Urbaniacs!
 
My name is SupaFlyBalla, but most call me FB.  I'm kind of new around here, but I'm getting the hang of it.  But enough of the introductions, let's move on to the article.
 
In the past week or so, there has been some activity in the Hero forums.  In this time we have created a new small group of Heroes.  We are known as the Hustle Alliance Elite.  If you want to learn more about this group, head to the Hero forums where more information will be posted.
 
As a new group, we wanted to get off to a good start.  We have done some thinking, and we have decided to host a contest.  This contest is for everyone, so feel free to enter.
 
The way to play is to go to your beat blaster, create and save a track, then make sure it is in your playlist.  Once you have done this, send me an Urbogram with the subject "music contest".  In your Urbogram be sure to include the title of the track you are entering.  We do not have time to decipher each Urbogram, so please make your words legible.
 
You may only enter one song, anyone who enters more will be disqualified.
 
The H.A. Elite members will pick 5 finalists and after they are chosen we will allow the public to vote for the best song.  More information on the voting process will come soon.
 
The prizes are as follows:
 
1st place- 1 TP (+ 10) and 500,000 urbos
2nd place- 300,000 urbos
3rd place- 100,000 urbos
4th place- 60,000 urbos
5th place- 40,000 urbos
 
Thank you for your time and we hope you will play!
 
If you have any questions, just holla at your Balla.
 
Sincerely,
FB and the H.A. Elite members

Chronicles Contest

Would you like to earn 3 cash items from the shop?  If so read and read carefully.

If you have never written an article for the Chronicles, this contest is for you.  Rule number one, you can't have written an article for the Chronicles.  2. This must be an Urb related article.  3.  It must be good and edited.  (Seeing how the staff doesn't have time to read 10 new articles.)  4.  Then submit it to the Chronicles.

Out of 10 we will eliminate 5 from the start.  The 5 remaining will have to write a second article to be judged.  Then we will eliminate 3 of you leaving only two to compete.  The last person picked must write another article in order to receive their prize.  I'd like to have this done by Christmas, so get to writing!
