Player Provided Information:

Welverin used to say the craziest 'conspiracy theory' type stuff about TFC mud code. He used to always talk about these ideas he had about the way the mechanics of the game worked. The time of day affecting what you how you practiced, the specific names of eq affecting your character in special ways, stuff like that. I always grouped with him anyway, because he seemed to be knowledgeable. But some of it was pretty weird.
Before Welverin was deleted, it was so safe to EXP when he was on! He kept all the Black Conclave in safe. I grouped with him on occasion in the big Midgaard groups. He moved so fast (through the zone) that all us Swedes got spammed off.
