  • noun There is a powerful legend which has extended across all incarnations of MUD that if you can get all the musical instruments together at the bandstand then Strange Things will happen. The nature of these differ, from simply showering you with points to having a ghostly orchestra appear and your having to solve that as the real puzzle. Naturally, what exactly constitutes being a musical instrument isn't ever quite clear... On CompuNet MUD, there was a further development where a ghostly conductor would appear and you had to give him the baton; singing along while he conducted his band would cause the bandstand to "crumble before your eyes. You score about 800 points for doing all this". I'm sure you do...
