The Telagrinch That Stole Easter

Posted on March 20th, 2008 in Holidays | 27 Comments »

Lately in Roblox, the “Telagrinch” has been having some fun. You see, Telamon has been going around leaving easter eggs. If you see Telamon at a place, and he leaves an egg, go and pick it up! Once you pick up an egg, you will see it in your hat inventory, and you can wear it! But, don’t forget, it is really hard to see Telamon at a place, giving hats away, no less.

This is the biggest story in Roblox right now. To be honest, I don’t have any egg hats myself, yet. So, be watching Telamon’s page! You never when and where he’ll strike next!

The following story was written by the Roblox user, Rug. I found his story in the Roblox forums, and I really liked it! So, I got his permission, and he said it would be okay if I use it for Roblox News! Enjoy!

T’was the first day of easter.
Robloxians played,
the Bloxxers were busy,
Login Tix were paid.
But, in spite of another wonderful day,
in all Robloxians would dance and play.
Up on Grinch Mountain,
The Telagrinch stared.
The noobs were all runing around all impaired,
“These noobs” said Telagrinch,
“Annoy me to no end!”
“I have to plan some way to make their fun end!”
So, he went to his workshop and crafted some ears.
“These ears shall awaken all of their fears!”
So, he went to a game and said “Follow me for a hat”,
and suddenly, the Robloxians crowded like that!
they said “GIVE ME AN EGG!” or “GIVE ME SOMETHING!”
and the Telagrinch played them on every whim!
And lo! All the servers he went to did clog!
A lag ridden mess, and the bloggers did blog.
“I can’t get a hat!” On flamer did flame
“That mean Telagrinch is surely to blame!”
And the forums were filled with complaints about eggs!
But, the server couldn’t take it and went out with a BANG!
Profiles were blocked, and admins were confused .
“How did this mess happen?” An admin mused.
And, the people who wanted and egg had no fun.
And, no one could stop it for the deed had been done.

It’s really good, huh? I’m not usually the best at rhyming. I would like to thank Rug again for letting us use his story. Thanks a million, Rug! And once again, keep an eye out on Telamon!

Roblox News Salutes Veterans Day

Posted on November 12th, 2007 in Holidays | 6 Comments »

We at Roblox News salute America’s Veterans.

Veterans Day is an American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is celebrated on the same day as Armistice Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
