    Anyone that has passed thru Luna on Legends, at any time of the day, on any day of the week, will have seen the lady astride a white cu sidhe and wearing a white hooded robe. They may have noticed her name, Arwen, as they rushed past to purchase overpriced goods from the nearby vendors. What they probably did not realize is that this lady is incredibly dedicated to the task of banksitting.... she has, over the years, elevated this activity to a near art form.

    In recognition of this feat there has been installed a marker, that she may always have a spot, no matter how crowded that area may be.

    I am sitting there now please come tow me away. The Luna bank and all banks are made for all, why should anyone be "rewarded/recognized" for simply bank sitting? Good to see the EM program adding rich content.

    Oh and I hold Arwen in nothing but the highest respect and love, I just find this type of EM action highly offensive, and it could almost lead to a discussion of favoritism.

    And this is why none of them wants to really do anything.
    Complaints, gripes, why them, why not me?!?!

    They put docks in Zento, finally. Zento is being favored!!! And OMFG, there is two water ele statues out there named for the chars that pushed the material collection so it could be built!

    The Kingdom's conflict with Zento, gonna make it come under the King's control...Skara sided with Zento in this, in the Skara fields there is a scroll locked down!!! OMG Skara Brae is favored over all others!!!!1111!!11!!onetyone

    Good Gawd, they erected a permanent memorial to Dar in Luna!?!?! I've got friends that are no longer here, where's their memorial at?!??!?!? Why her and not __________, that aint fair!! Something's gotta be done about this favoritism~!!!!!


    And Thunder, this isn't directed at you per se, even tho I quoted you. I've heard the same ole rumble from several different people, and I just don't understand the griping. Let's take what we get, let's do things a little different, let's have some fun with it, fer cryin out loud.

    The Zento Docks was a EM event of sorts. The Memorials are now part of the EM program, anyone can request them. But this Bank thing just struck me a something different. I do not think we should simply "take what we get" ; the first incarnation of the EM program failed because their appeared to be favoritism and EM's too friendly with a select group of players (anyone remember the Casino).
     
  14. By EM admission, it is simply a temporary thing there for laughs. No reason to come unstrung. It really is no big deal. The Casino was different. People received rares worth millions and millions of dollars, then started selling them off and profiting. This is something that nobody can profit from, and has no value other than to Arwen and to bring a few laughs.

    I think there should be a statue of the !OF! guild in Luna with a plaque. It would read "Ossifragant the great, dismantlers of the LD and ^X^ hordes".

    We do need historic shard monuments after all...

    I know I figured I wouldnt post again but this was to much to pass up. So this will probably be my last post and will either get deleted and me possibly banned.

    New Thunder was a mod at one time when these boards were alive, he did a great job letting people discus thier animosities. Both trammies and pvpers all posted all kinds of tales and lies here. It was a place to come check on what you missed while you were gone.

    Now unfortunalty its a place to come and get attacked without recourse if your not in the in crowd. Dont worry the favoritism runs great here and within the game itself. Its why theres less and less people playing and posting. I understand what Thunder was trying to imply, to bad because it was somebody that Uriah plays with, knows he rushed to the defense. Nothing like getting bashed by a mod.

    Good job this will now be known as the 4th reich

    peace
