As it breaks, the tarp magically disappears, revealing a shining bronze statue! Powerline looks proudly at the Dedication Statue. Perdita asks, "em are we going to look at it?" This is a bronzed statue of the EMuck opening cast, standing beneath an open archway. The EMuck logo hangs proudly at the top of the arch.

Belle says, "well, I know @costume is in development, but you can basically set your hover pod to have as many different forms as you want and just pick and choose which one you feel like having at the moment." Bobby says, "that even works for the puppets. I guess they all have to have the p. on them too" RobinHood says, "interesting..." lar3ry smiles. I can always use suggestions on improving things. * [Zazu has connected] * lar3ry says, "I don't know if @COSTUME honors the puppet 'p.' but 'pp' will prepend the p. if it's not in the name."
