OMP July 1999, Chicago Style
Mudders from all over the world, rejoined for the second annual OMP in
Northbrook, IL at the Raddison Hotel. Held on the weekend of July 20-21st,
the 3K OMP involved over 150 people, from players to wizards and their
friends who showed up to enjoy the festivites. For many of these people,
they had only know each other via the text based MUD, and for others it
was a reunion, of sorts, from the previous year.
The night's entertainment consisted of games, such as a scavenger hunt, door
prize raffle, an UNO Tourney and ended with a belly dance from our own Haplo.
