- UPDATE: Attention, all chatters! There is now a new "silencing" option in our infraction system. This means that if you break our chat rules you could have your communication privileges removed either temporarily or permanently. While you are silenced, you would not be able to post on the neoboards, send neomails, post on your guild, update your user lookup information, or communicate in any way with another player on the site. Normal warns, suspensions, and even freezes still apply to those who break the other rules - we just wanted a less harsh punishment for chat infractions. *nods and salutes*

The violins were not playing sweet music, he thought. No, the blasted instruments made a cacophony of horrid notes that comprised such a vile noise that he could not believe anyone could stand to listen to it. To the enthusiastic partygoers, though, it seemed that the music was absolutely angelic. Their minds were in a carefree state as they all enjoyed the lavish masquerade ball. He, however, was livid. A mere wall was separating the dark, narrow passageway from the ballroom. A mere wall separated him from his next... prize.
