    Hail Folks,

    I am trying to Open a Museum of Character Statues, ala a spinoff on the wax museum idea, on Baja. In part this is intended to preserve and Honor current Characters, though it could also serve to Memorialize and Remember Characters who have departed, or Characters of Players who have Died.

    One Major obstacle is that Character accounts must be at least 6 years old to claim the Character Statue Maker from the 6th year Vet Reward choices, but also that once claimed, Characters still can't use them until at least 6 years old.

    It is my hope that Players will voice, or in here Text, your support of either Moving these from the 6th year vet reward group to the One Year Vet Reward group; OR once claimed by 6 year old accounts, be usable by any Character; OR allow these to be sold through the EA Stores for use by any account and its Characters.

    While I am opening such a Character Statue Museum on Baja, it is my hope other Shards will do likewise on every other Shard, OR create a copy of your oldest or most favorite Character on Baja, and be Preserved and Memorialized there!

    I welcome serious, on topic responses. If for, why, and if opposed, why???

    Thanks to each of you for your thoughtful replies and comments.

    Lord Elladan of Trinsic/Baja

    p.s. Stratics and Mythic Entertainment staff responses are also sought and welcomed

    We had one briefly on siege at one point. It was a nice idea.

    I think that even if not moving the year it can be picked, they should at least be useable by any year. All shards other than mounts and cloaks should be really.

    First off, I don't like the idea of give away's and rewards. This is a classic example. All things should be part of game play. Players should be able to make statues. Not just of players, of monsters too. Then you don't have this problem.

    My opinion? Leave things the way they are.

    We have had one on Napa for a long time. I think they use vendors dressed like players untill they can use a statue maker. Seems like it works out good how they do it here. I dont think any change is needed.

    I could go either way. If you need a temporary fix let me know. I have four accounts that can do character statues. Just let me know what the name is, female or male, hair style, etc.

    I have a wax museum on Oceania but it's all done with vendors.

    You can manage quite a lot with those. I do have three statues at my other place but those are modeled on deities.
