    Greetings to the shard! Some of you know me, but I’m sure a few of you don’t. I have a bit of experience in professional writing and have decided to volunteer to be a part of our shard’s reporting team. First, I actually have some big plans. But I will need the help of many on the shard to carry them out. I will do my best to report on the important happenings – events and such – but I would also like to do some interviews – first with each of the guild leaders of the shard, and then perhaps with some of our more solo or loner players who are well known. This will take some time, so I hope you will be patient as I tackle this goal. Events will always take precedence over interviews, but I will work on the interviews in between events.

    I will be up front here and state that yes, I am a member of GIL. *spits for Nightstalker* But I am here for all of our shard – not just the players who are in GIL. My goal is to be an unbiased reporter and I think I can actually pull that off. My experience with Siege is that we are not just unique, but generally a bit older and more mature. From I4NI to O-S and ARR to GIL and NEW to NEW2, we’ve done some amazing things on our shard – and lived (or died) to tell of it. So I hope that as I cover events and request interviews, you will be willing to participate. Oh, and since I am a member of GIL, they will get to go last, but I think they understand. When I say unbiased, I truly mean it!

    If you have any news, are planning a player run event, have a new player run establishment or museum, please message me.

    In service to our great shard – Adrianas

    So is GIL just trying to take over Siege? Lord knows they already have the EM in their pocket. Now the reporter. So I bet all that is reported is their little sekret playtimes.

    Speaking of EMs - Who can we petition to inorder to get an unbiased EM on the server?

    EM Aurora is as unbiased as she can be. She responds to people who respond to her.

    The Shard reporter job goes to someone who's willing to put in the time and effort to do it.
    I can't say I've ever noticed you applying for the job? I suggest you leave the attitude out.

    I didn't know we were actively looking for applicants. I am quite the writer!

    :gun: :sad2::whip:

    Maybe the way to" take over the Siege" is to care for Siege. GIL do have alot good folk, who really want to help our shard grow.
    When you came back, you came with a good attitude, you too wanted to do something for Siege, it did sounds like you did care.

    Then something did happen, guess a little issue with some robes and sinse then your attitude changes, that sad.

    Get your good mood back and rejoin the community, it's not to late.

    Oure EM is doing a great job, she is there for us, it does not matter what guild she may came from as long she is there for all of us.

    I hope it take more than your attitude to scare Adrianas away :)

    If I didn't know any better, I would say you're lookin' to try and stir something up, Mr. Rumpy. But you would never do that . . . . *wink*

    Actually, I recommend you re-read my little intro and take note that I hope to interview not just guild leaders, but some of our notable individual players - that would include some interesting people - like Yaha, Bo, and indeed, you. But it will be quite a while before I get to the individual interviews. But I will get to it eventually.

    In the meantime, no offense taken here. The only way to prove impartiality is to consistently show that one is impartial.

    Oh look, there is a line - never mind you just crossed it.
    You've never experienced any other EM than Aurora, did you? She does a great job for Siege, that's for sure!
    In case you try to step into the footprints of an individual starting with the fourth letter of the alphabet you're also getting closer.
    Feeling sorry to see you go this path...

    back to topic: welcome Adrianas, looking forward to read your stories and meet you in-game.
