Chesapeake Player Community-linked Teleporters and Banners Meeting Results

Discussion in 'UO Chesapeake' started by Tancred RedStar, Nov 13, 2009.

  1. Last night's meeting to discuss the concept of player community-linked gates/teleporters and banners was huge! The dev team member Mesanna as well as EM's Vladimere and Dudley hosted the meeting and it was well attended by Chesapeake players. The blaze tent at the Luna Fairgrounds was literally packed to the rafters.

    I have included the complete chat log for all to read on another site as there is a 40k character limit here and the post is over 100k characters, even with extensive editting. The meeting lasted roughly 4 hours and the chatlog was over 500k in raw format.

    To summarize:
    • This was more a suggestion and comment meeting.
    • The discussion was driven by "it's your shard, what do you want? We'll try to make it happen."
    • Player communities should email either of the EM's to request a town banner. The EM's will then try to arrange a time to visit the town for a tour
    • Communities that seem cohesive and active can have a town teleporter added.
    • The specific rules and appearance of the teleporter have not been nailed down, but the basic gist is it won't be used in an exploitive manner or merely as a facade for activities non-conducive to the community(not to say that it can't involve dark RP, just not outright griefing or harassment).
    • Teleporters that are used in a negative manner can be removed.
    • This is a dedicated effort by Mesanna with, of course, EM support.
    • In-game elements such as petitioning Queen Dawn will likely be employed to enrich and add flavor.
    • It is possible(though not yet confirmed) that communities may be called upon to devote effort to constructing or otherwise achieving a town teleporter.
    • There are NO strict requirements for what constitutes a "town" but it should be of player interest and things such as a local tavern, stocked vendors, rune library, player-run events and activities, etc. will come across as more conducive to the player community at large. Additionally, having structures(houses) share a common housesign or display a common banner help enhance the appearance of a common effort and community spirit.

    The complete chat log is a good read if you want to get a better of idea of some of the things people suggested, how they were received, what kinds of concerns were raised and a general idea of the wide spectrum of players that were interested and came to this meeting.

    Lastly, a big thank you to Mesanna, EM Vlad and Dudley for presenting us Chesapeake players an exciting opportunity and hearing us out over the span of hours and hours. Also, a special thanks to Gareth for helping get the ball rolling on this.

    Mesanna: This is a meetijng for ideas, nothing will be ignored
    Mesanna: but
    Mesanna: please do not start calling names etc ok?
    Mesanna: we are all here to do something good for the shard
    Mesanna: ok first you guys have anything to address, Dudley Vlad?
    EM Dudley: *shakes head*
    EM Dudley: All yours
    Mesanna: Ok let me put on the table what I am willing to do
    Mesanna: Guild towns, player towns etc
    Mesanna: can all have a banner placed
    Mesanna: did everyone see the banner outside?
    Mesanna: ok you really need to know what it looks like
    Tancred RedStar: fire drill!

    *Many people run outside after Mesanna*

    Gareth: Mesanna is giving rules outside

    *Remaining people run outside after Mesanna to view the prototype banner*



    Mesanna: we copy your town banners
    Mesanna: and place there here in the fair grounds
    [Alliance][John Duke]: She says she has a problem with town teleporters
    Mesanna: under your banner will be a teleporter to the matching banner in your town
    [Alliance][John Duke]: But they will copy the town banners and place them here
    [Alliance][John Duke]: The banners would have a teleporter which goes to your town
    Mesanna: I will think about that one
    Visago: will there be one town banner in the center of town?
    Mesanna: I can see it being used as escapes if the town is in fe;l
    Mesanna: and I really don't think that is fair
    Mesanna: Ack Fel!
    Tancred RedStar: what if it's no aggro only
    Sari-Liane: Wouldnt the timer kick in if you tried to flee?
    John Duke: the aggro rules can't work on teleporters?
    Mesanna: timers do not work on my teleporters =)
    Mesanna: they are not linked to the moongate system
    Sari-Liane: Well I have a suggestion then
    Sari-Liane: if I may?
    Mesanna: of course
    Sari-Liane: What if there was a single rune locked down at the foot of the banner?
    Sari-Liane: That way it directly links back to here
    Sari-Liane: But the aggro timer is still in effect
    Sari-Liane: Would that work ok?
    Mesanna: As I said I will think about putting teleporters under each banner
    Mesanna: but let me think about all the ways to exploint that first =)
    Mesanna: exploit too
    Mesanna: shall we go back inside
    *Everyone runs back inside the blaze tent*
    Mesanna: so we can organize this better
    Mesanna: ok so lets make sure everyone gets a voice
    Mesanna: I would like for one person at a time to step down
    EM Vladimere: but not all at the same time
    Mesanna: that way we can all have a voice
    Mesanna: Vlad your killing me with your text
    Grimlar Mithrax: *raises his hand*
    Mesanna: Come down Grimlar
    Grimlar Mithrax: anyone in front of me?

    Bjorn Darkstone: *raises hand to speak*
    EM Vladimere: You just can't find a good Britannian dentist these days...
    Mesanna: I have developed an issue due to surgery that has caused me to have lost vision in one eye
    whitesnake: ouch
    Mesanna: so I might be a little slow with some text
    Winfield: oh no
    Tancred RedStar: :(

    Grimlar Mithrax: Huzzah!
    Mesanna: ok guys who is next?
    EM Vladimere: A secret well kept by the EM staff till now :)
    Winfield: *raises hand*
    Gareth: Winfield had a question.
    EM Dudley: Winfield I think
    EM Dudley: Saw his hand first
    Mesanna: Winfield please
    Winfield: As for central hubs for the teleporters,
    Winfield: there could be a lot of good involvement in Felucca too,
    Mesanna: I hope so
    Winfield: as you examine the diffulties of combat and escape.
    EM Vladimere: Everytime we try to do an event in Fell it turns into a PvP bloodbath
    Winfield: I recommend a gump to select which central hub you want to go to,
    Winfield: when stepping on a town teleporter.
    Mesanna: I will do this
    Winfield: To the Felucca hub, or the Trammel-based hub.
    Winfield: Thus our citizens who are red can participate.
    Mesanna: to keep people from stepping to a town not knowing where they are
    Winfield: Thank you.
    Mesanna: I will add the facet the town is in
    Mesanna: to the banner
    Mesanna: I think that might help
    Winfield: And have two hubs for the teleporters, one in Felucca, and one in Trammel perhaps?
    EM Vladimere: AAAH! It feels like someone kicked me in the teeth!
    Mesanna: I guess I am not understainding you, if the town is in Fel why would there be a hub in TraM?
    Winfield: I have a town in Fel.
    [Alliance][Tancred RedStar]: sounds like it will be like a teleporter, not a moongate with a menu
    Winfield: And would like to hub it to Fel and Trammel.
    Mesanna: The teleporter tiles will be here
    EM Vladimere: MAKE IT STOP!
    Winfield: Most of our citizens are in Trammel, but our statehood city is in Felucca.
    Mesanna: going to each town
    Mesanna: Do you have towns in both tram and fel?
    Winfield: I do.
    Mesanna: I do not see a problem then
    Winfield: We have three towns and several outposts.
    Mesanna: would both of your towns be named the same?
    Winfield: 2 towns in Fel, and one in Tokuno
    Mesanna: Are the towns named different?
    Winfield: We are PaxLair Statehood, consisting of PaxLair City Fel, Dragons Watch Fel, and PaxOku Tokuno
    Daria Blackmoore: She means one hub here to all cities i think
    Mesanna: Then you would have 3 banners
    Winfield: So we have three cities to connect and contribute across several facets.
    Mesanna: One for each
    Winfield: *nods*
    Mesanna: each one denoting the name
    Winfield: Each will just teleport back here to Luna? the central hub?
    Mesanna: yes sir
    Winfield: If this is the hub.
    EM Vladimere: You just can't find a good Britannian dentist these days...
    You see: EM Vladimere
    Winfield: So there won't be a hub on Felucca you think?
    Winfield: to get to all cities? So murderers can go around Felucca towns?
    Mesanna: I see your point now
    Winfield: Just something to consider, two hubs to connect all towns.
    Mesanna: for the Fel towns we can have a hub there to link the Fel cities
    Mesanna: and one here
    Mesanna: Is that acceptable to you?
    Winfield: Here linking to all cities, wether in fel or trammel I think is essential.
    EM Vladimere: All the other shards are gonna be jealous that chessy has this and they dont :)
    Winfield: As for a Felucca hub, not really sure yet, other than how to help murderers too.
    Winfield: I will think on this more too. The trammel hub is most important first I think.
    Winfield: Thank you.
    Mesanna: Let me just say I will work with you guys to make sure they are not left out
    Mesanna: an we will work out a way to link all fel cities
    Winfield: My evil Winfield twin appreciates it!
    Winfield: Well, I don't really have a twin.
    Mesanna: who is next guys
    EM Dudley: I saw Teqilla earlier
    EM Dudley: We'll get to everyone in time
    EM Dudley: Tequilla come on down
    Mesanna: please step down
    Mesanna: Hi Te
    TeQuIlLa-: hello
    TeQuIlLa-: i was waundering about fel events
    TeQuIlLa-: we have a ton of reds on chessy
    TeQuIlLa-: and i think that we should have more
    TeQuIlLa-: because they are a ton of fun
    Mesanna: that brings up a good point
    TeQuIlLa-: gettin out there havin huge wars
    EM Vladimere: but if i go around killing everyone i cant come to luna
    Mesanna: I personally love to kill players
    TeQuIlLa-: lol
    Mesanna: I mean have a good fight
    EM Dudley: *nods*
    Mesanna: I will be happy to help in any way I can
    EM Vladimere: *Kal vas kill everyone*
    Mesanna: even if its just lets see who can last longer
    EM Vladimere: opps

    Mesanna: I am kidding of course
    EM Vladimere: *inspects one hit dagger*
    Mesanna: *kinda*

    *
    Tancred RedStar: how long we looking at til implementation, a week? 3 months?
    Mesanna: as soon as we come up with the rules I am looking at starting to put down banners in towns
    Mesanna: After we get the banners in towns we will start the hub teleporters to the towns
    Tancred RedStar: would it be possible to make this an event for each player community, amass materials together?
    Tancred RedStar: rather than just *boom* banner/portal appears
    Visago: good idea, like a community project
    Mesanna: I like that idea, Dudley/Vlad?
    Mesanna: Thank you can work with everyone for this
    EM Dudley: Sounds great to me
    EM Vladimere: Agreed
    Mesanna: Sweet
    Tancred RedStar: one of my favorite memories was helping build defenses of Moonglow
    EM Dudley: I'd have to clear it with the Queen though...
    EM Dudley: *winks*
    Grimlar Mithrax: *cheers!!!*
    Tancred RedStar: hides, wood, etc
    EM Vladimere: Wait before we go any further thou
    EM Vladimere: we need to come to a number of houses needed to make the town
    EM Vladimere: and how long it has been in operation
    EM Vladimere: thats to stop someone from buying two or three accounts
    EM Vladimere: saying its a town
    EM Vladimere: and getting a gate
    Mesanna: one sec guys
    EM Vladimere: Also all the houses in that town need their house sign to be the same
    Mesanna: Reporter?
    Reporter: Yes.
    Reporter: I have thought this over several times
    EM Vladimere: thats so we know
    Reporter: And have come to a suggestion for classification as well as denotation of player towns.
    EM Vladimere: thats so we know and the players know
    EM Vladimere: its discussion
    EM Vladimere: ideas thrown out
    EM Vladimere: not in stone
    EM Vladimere: i am sorry if it came that way, i was not trying to make it sound like i was telling
    EM Vladimere: just tossing out things for discussion
    Mesanna: ok Reporter go ahead
    EM Vladimere: brb, door bell
    Reporter: Very well.
    Reporter: I would like to propose a simple classification system
    Reporter: That is dependent upon number of homes
    Reporter: as well as another categorization possibility
    EM Vladimere: those was sugguestions not rules
    Reporter: The first is that the number depends on the name
    Reporter: A village or Hamlet might have 5-10 homes
    Reporter: A town might have 10-20
    Reporter: A city would have 20-30
    Reporter: and a kingdom or empire 30-50, with possibilities ranging higher
    Reporter: if they exist
    Reporter: I would not think that is necessary
    Reporter: However
    Reporter: A mere set of houses is not enough
    Reporter: you must also make it a town, village, or hamlet
    Reporter: Or city
    EM Dudley: *has everyone in the que*
    Reporter: for those whom have a village, one would expect there to be at least a basic stop for travellers
    Reporter: To get drinks, food, and rest their legs
    Reporter: A town would expand upon this
    Reporter: A town should have some center for commerce
    Reporter: Perhaps a market square, or an auction house
    Reporter: A city would have more of what you expect in a true brittanian city
    Reporter: The ability to enjoy entertainment...
    Reporter: Nay, these are things the players should work on, not the EM's/Devs
    Reporter: A playhouse, or perhaps a stage, or a library
    Reporter: A museum
    Reporter: An archive
    Reporter: There should be at least one building
    Reporter: that has administrative offices
    Reporter: all cities have to be run at some level
    Reporter: Without this, can it be a city?
    Reporter: Finally, the kingdom/empire should be very difficult to achieve
    Reporter: It should be necessary to have a jail to incarcerate those who break the laws
    Reporter: Guard towers
    EM Vladimere: we are not gonna set rules to what your city does, thats up to the players and their towns
    Reporter: A courthouse
    Reporter: That is why i am giving many examples
    Reporter: administrative for the savages would be the chiefs hut
    EM Vladimere: its your not ours
    Reporter: A kingdom or empire should have resources that are useful
    Reporter: like a rune library, or a historic building
    Reporter: This should be used if you want in game recognition by the Crown...
    Reporter: If you merely throw a random assortment of homes together
    EM Vladimere: we was here to discuss linking them
    EM Vladimere: not governing them
    Reporter: How can it be said you should be recognize more than any random patch of malas?
    Reporter: This is the problem facing us.
    Reporter: I agree with EM Vlad
    Reporter: The houses should be identifiable in some way
    EM Vladimere: i am done before mesanna stabs me :)
    Reporter: Either the same house sign
    Reporter: Or perhaps the town name after the house name
    Reporter: Or a veteran reward banner
    Reporter: or some other landmark that makes them easily known as belonging to that town
    EM Vladimere: hold for a sec
    Reporter: I disagree with the fact of 'longevity' being a factor
    EM Vladimere: let me see where mesanna got too
    Reporter: Because then you have a large argument to decide about what is long enough
    Reporter: I am offering a suggestion.
    Reporter: My suggestion is that the banners have little requirement
    Mesanna: ok thank you Reporter
    Reporter: other than activity
    Reporter: And proof of township
    Reporter: The others are advanced ideas for true recognition.
    Reporter: I apologize for my longwindedness, and thank you for your patience.
    Mesanna: thank you
    EM Dudley: Nyx is up next
    Nyx: ..
    EM Dudley: Daria is on deck
    Nyx: Hello Mesanna
    Mesanna: Hi Nyx
    Nyx: Recently our guild decided to ask what makes a town a town
    Nyx: Since then our guild and others in the area like whitesnake
    Nyx: have aquired homes near Handes Hostel
    Nyx: which means
    Nyx: we have we working inn and stables
    Nyx: procided by the designers
    Nyx: we also have a post office
    Nyx: town hall
    Nyx: bar
    Nyx: nightclub
    Nyx: auction house
    Nyx: library
    Nyx: the question is what else is there
    Nyx: age?
    Nyx: events
    Mesanna: I ask myself this
    Mesanna: What are we really wanting to do this for, what is the reason for this
    Nyx: Right
    Mesanna: I hope the answer is to bring the shard together
    Mesanna: to give players a simple way to find better vendors
    Nyx: Will there be certain days for events for player towns
    Mesanna: to give them a way to meet other players
    Mesanna: to bring us together
    Nyx: instead of everyone stepping on everyone elses toes
    Nyx: Like sat nights are she auctions
    Mesanna: wait I have more suggestions here
    Nyx: it would be intrusive to hold an event on there night
    EM Vladimere: I have a question for everyone
    Mesanna: I would like to suggestion a reward system for our towns
    Mesanna: We can help the players organize their events
    Nyx: not great for 2nd and 3rd shift persons
    Masta Blasta: ok weedends in the afternoon
    Mesanna: we can put down a table
    Nyx: What type of rewards
    Nyx: town items
    Nyx: or useful things
    Nyx: like a banker
    Mesanna: I was thinking for the towns that do the most for the community
    Mesanna: such as help others, organize events etc
    Mesanna: we can add little things to their towns
    Mesanna: I won't bless a house
    Mesanna: but I would give a fountain
    Mesanna: maybe a stable
    Mesanna: or a bank
    Nyx: very nice
    Prowler: what about plaques handed to people that help events
    Prowler: is a good recognition
    Yoshi: so playing favorites??
    Mesanna: this are only suggestions guys off the top of my head
    Mesanna: no I am not
    Mesanna: here is the kicker
    Mesanna: you guys tell me what towns are doing the most for the shard
    Mesanna: I nor the EM's would do that
    Luna Rossa: what if you are a person that likes to hold things for the shard?
    Mesanna: its all on your shoulders
    Mesanna: define hold things>
    Mesanna: ?
    Tancred RedStar: there needs to be some oversight so the "system" isn't gamed
    Luna Rossa: well for example
    Luna Rossa: before I arrived here
    Luna Rossa: I asked an EM on another shard
    Luna Rossa: if they could help me
    Luna Rossa: as I wanted to set up a maze
    Luna Rossa: for the harvest festival
    Luna Rossa: they said it could not be done
    Luna Rossa: so it can?
    Luna Rossa: or I have held shard tours
    Mesanna: Guys none of the EM's are going to show favoritism but...
    Mesanna: they will help with your events but not by spawning things
    Luna Rossa: ah ok
    Zelda of Zed: ours do
    Luna Rossa: thank you sorry to interject
    Mesanna: they can lock things down but they will delete it afterwards
    Luna Rossa: aye
    Luna Rossa: that was what I was after
    Luna Rossa: or for a scavenger hunt
    Luna Rossa: ok I will wait my turn sorry
    Mesanna: Luna email me or talk to me afterwards
    Luna Rossa: *nods*
    Mesanna: Next
    EM Dudley: Daria
    EM Vladimere: Masta
    EM Vladimere: sry
    EM Dudley: Masta is on deck
    Mesanna: Masta hello
    Masta Blasta: me or daria?
    Daria Blackmoore: Like to say it awesome to see two new towns emerge as these discussions have begun
    Daria Blackmoore: I hope in some way
    Daria Blackmoore: we can extend this to well known single establishments
    Ashlynn: would fulfill that one?
    Daria Blackmoore: such as the fine folks of the SHE auction
    Daria Blackmoore: who do as much for the comm as any of us
    Daria Blackmoore: being a stable in the comm
    Daria Blackmoore: also
    Daria Blackmoore: I cant say we should put a number on the houses to make a town
    Daria Blackmoore: a town
    Daria Blackmoore: some are very small
    Nyx: Mesanna what is your email please.
    Daria Blackmoore: and desrve fair treatment
    Daria Blackmoore: and recongnition
    Daria Blackmoore: I love the idea of having to work a bit for these blessings
    Daria Blackmoore: I think a simple visit to each comm
    Daria Blackmoore: to see for yourselves
    Daria Blackmoore: will help greatly
    Daria Blackmoore: in sizing up the task ahead
    Mesanna: Personal feeling is its not the amount of houses that matters
    Daria Blackmoore: *nods*
    Daria Blackmoore: that is all i think
    Daria Blackmoore: :}
    Reporter: I must personally say that I disagree with blessings being given based on player reccomendation;
    Mesanna: I will not say you can not be recognized just because your in one house
    Reporter: This seems like an easy way to set it up as popularity contest.
    Daria Blackmoore: Aye it could eaily go either way Rep
    Daria Blackmoore: We dont want that
    EM Vladimere: no matter what happens some will be happy and some will be mad
    Daria Blackmoore: Thank you
    EM Dudley: Masta is up
    Masta Blasta: ok i have a few questions
    Mesanna: go ahead Masta
    Masta Blasta: first is about player towns
    Masta Blasta: myself and a few others own houses along the road at britain crossroads in felucca
    Masta Blasta: we have about 8 or 9 houses along the road, would it be possible to make that a player town?
    Mesanna: why wouldn't it?
    Sari-Liane: Are they public and for the benefit of all players?
    Masta Blasta: i dunno just asking, how would it get started?
    Masta Blasta: like would one of the ems have to set it up or something
    Masta Blasta: or does everyone need to agree that it should be a player town
    Mesanna: I will be setting up all banners etc
    Masta Blasta: ok
    Mesanna: I would be adding your town names to them
    Masta Blasta: another question is
    EM Dudley: *has Lza and Ozog in the que"*
    Masta Blasta: is you own a house in part of a player town, are you forced to be part of that town?
    Ozog Giantfart: *grins*
    Daria Blackmoore: Wouldnt think so
    EM Vladimere: no
    EM Vladimere: can i be the tax man :)
    EM Dudley: *has Gunga, adds Vis*
    Reporter: To interject, is your concern masta about the supposed downside of the towns?
    Mesanna: Not here to force anyone to do anything
    Mesanna: but
    Mesanna: would be nice if all the houses had the same banners in their houses that is being displayed
    Mesanna: as the town banner
    Masta Blasta: ok and finally, i would suggest events to be monday thru thursday evening and weekend afternoons
    Masta Blasta: :)
    Masta Blasta: thank you
    Mesanna: thank you Masta
    Mesanna: Next?
    EM Dudley: Luna was next
    Luna Rossa: thank you
    Mesanna: Luna?
    Luna Rossa: I want to ask
    Luna Rossa: what about player cities that are in close paroximity to each other?
    Luna Rossa: Will they both be able to get a banner and link from the Luna fairground?
    Mesanna: yes they will
    Luna Rossa: ok thank you
    Mesanna: your welcome
    Mesanna: Next Dudley
    EM Dudley: Gunga
    Mesanna: Gunga hello
    Gunga Din: yes
    Gunga Din: i have just a small village in ter mur
    Gunga Din: if u feel that is too small
    Gunga Din: i would join a larger group
    Gunga Din: to participate
    Gunga Din: do u think thats the right move
    Mesanna: do you plan on supporting your shard?
    Gunga Din: yes
    Gunga Din: i'd give up my ter mur setup
    Gunga Din: to contribute to the shard
    Mesanna: do you plan on showing respect to the players that visit your town?
    Gunga Din: aye
    Mesanna: then you should be fine as you are
    Gunga Din: i thank thee
    Gunga Din: but if i feel
    Mesanna: Your most welcome
    Gunga Din: i can do more good
    Gunga Din: in a larger town
    Gunga Din: i would do it
    Mesanna: That will be your choice and we will merge the banners at that time
    Gunga Din: aye
    Mesanna: You will always have the option
    Gunga Din: i will have to consider
    Gunga Din: which choice is more helpful to the shard
    EM Dudley: *has Laz in Que...adds Winfield*
    Gunga Din: and this ida
    Gunga Din: idea
    Gunga Din: thats all thx
    Mesanna: I am sure you will make a good one

    Zelda of Zed: but was not sure how to change it
    Zelda of Zed: so i am very happy to see that you having given up your time
    Zelda of Zed: to be with us tonight
    Zelda of Zed: my big issue was the way that Cheesy was being ignored
    Zelda of Zed: we all looked at what the other shards got
    Zelda of Zed: and felt like we were left out
    Zelda of Zed: when we felt we needed to say something
    Zelda of Zed: and i will admit
    Zelda of Zed: sometimes i didn not have the tact i should have
    Zelda of Zed: and for that i am sorry to any one I hurt or offeend
    Zelda of Zed: i have myself given alot to the community and felt we were left out
    Zelda of Zed: and that lead to some of my rudeness
    Zelda of Zed: so........
    Zelda of Zed: with that said
    Zelda of Zed: i hope in the future we will be able to talk to the ems and deal with isssues
    Zelda of Zed: without scarsim.. from them...
    Tancred RedStar: I do not agree
    Zelda of Zed: or others.. when someone feels. they are getting the short end of the stick
    Vek the Savage: Vek like ems
    Zelda of Zed: so with that said... i very much hope that what you are doing will work
    Zelda of Zed: and that there is better chatter between all of us
    Mesanna: Thank you Zelda
    Zelda of Zed: and not just name calling or bs... it is great what you are doing with the city run towns...
    Mesanna: I want to say this to all of you

    Reporter: While those on the low end
    EM Vladimere: u have no idea what goes on to make events or the prep involved
    Reporter: Siege, Catskills, Sonoma
    Celestial Knight: okay let Zelda finish
    Zelda of Zed: see its is cool if we are a linked town we have more then just the auction house
    Visago: this is disrailing the meeting
    EM Vladimere: many hours spent off line
    Prowler: could we all please refrain from speaking and let the ems answer this issue
    Mesanna: I would hope if you have a problem you would be able to talk it out

    Lazarus: First how many screens is going to be a question we have houses in our town
    Lazarus: that is a few screens off
    Lazarus: is there going to be a limit?
    Mesanna: You would have to come up with a location for your banner
    Lazarus: ok we have an Idea of were it will be
    Phoenix: Dudley am I in q?
    Lazarus: Now secondly
    Lazarus: as for town events
    Lazarus: I don't know the limit to your powers as GM but we hold an ester egg hunt every easter
    Lazarus: Now to kill rabits got the colored eggs is a pain for the guild so to hold it
    Mesanna: Ok First
    CharGar: shes a dev not a gm.
    Lazarus: for an event
    Mesanna: I am NOT a GM hun
    CharGar: ROFL
    EM Dudley: *snickers*
    CharGar: hehe
    Lazarus: could you all place a dye tub for the eggs
    Mesanna: sorry

    Lazarus: like ter mer was added add a slot for guild towns
    Lazarus: that are conected to the banners
    Lazarus: that way the guild towns are connected to all the towns
    Lazarus: thank you for your time
    EM Dudley: Sari is up next
    Mesanna: thank you Lazarus
    Mesanna: Hello Sari
    EM Dudley: Sari-Lane?
    EM Dudley: Sari-Liane
    Sari-Liane: Ohh sorry was half asleep lol
    Sari-Liane: Its nearly 4am here
    Mesanna: wow
    Darth Oni: by me 5 am!
    Sari-Liane: Hehe Just moved from Europa
    Sari-Liane: Ok.. here's what i've been wondering
    Sari-Liane: What constitutes as a player town?
    Sari-Liane: Alot has been spoken about this and that with groups of houses
    Daria Blackmoore: ice cream truck ran by
    Sari-Liane: But there has been no real... confirmation about what the basics are
    Mesanna: No there hasn't
    Sari-Liane: IE.. Houses being public, of benefit to those around, crafters + townspeople being avaliable
    Sari-Liane: to well.. do what they do like at brit smithy years ago
    EM Vladimere: Vendors being stocked :)
    Sari-Liane: A good feel of community
    Sari-Liane: LOL exactly
    Sari-Liane: Too often I run around places and 'town's that are empty of anyone
    Sari-Liane: and this is during prime time
    Sari-Liane: That is not a town... its houses clumped together
    Mesanna: I would say first off you have to be an active player
    Sari-Liane: If any player run area is to gain regonition
    Sari-Liane: then it must be worthwhile them having it
    Sari-Liane: *nods*
    Gunga Din: too many people hangout at the bank
    EM Vladimere: Bank = Safe Haven :)
    Sari-Liane: Exactly
    Mesanna: Banks are easy to find players at
    Sari-Liane: for instance in the village i've just moved into
    Sari-Liane: I'm often running around as is others
    Sari-Liane: and if anyone comes though being chased by a tuski wolf (sp??) was chasing them
    Sari-Liane: we'ld go out and help him
    Niva the Savage: Hard numbers bad!
    Sari-Liane: At the end of the day...
    Sari-Liane: It has to be about community
    Sari-Liane: one house
    Sari-Liane: or 100
    Sari-Liane: dosnt matter
    Mesanna: I agree
    Sari-Liane: Its community
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*
    Vek the Savage: HA OOH!
    Gareth: *Claps*
    Vek the Savage: HA OOH!
    Sinhi: HA-OOH! HA-OOH! HA-OOH!
    Gunga Din: agree

    Sinhi: HA-OOH! HA-OOH! HA-OOH!

    EM Dudley: Exavior is up, Char on deck, Sinhi in the hold
    EM Dudley: err Hole even
    Mesanna: Good night Dartari
    Phoenix: Did you get me Dudley?
    EM Dudley: *nods*
    Mesanna: Hello Exavior
    Gunga Din: In the past, many of the best community areas were single establishments
    Winfield: Get me too Dudley?
    Exavior: alot of my questions have been answered
    EM Dudley: *ndos*
    EM Dudley: *nods*
    Exavior: but my consern is for the newbees
    Exavior: is there a safe gaurd spot that can be put in town neer banner
    Mesanna: as in how do we include new players?
    Exavior: or a rez spot
    Mesanna: ahh how do we protec them
    Sari-Liane: Use the community!!
    Angelica: with player run guards
    CharGar: we dont
    EM Vladimere: Newbs not allowed in Fell
    Exavior: if we the vets are not there
    CharGar: newbies die
    Gareth: player run guards?
    Exavior: to help
    CharGar: rofl
    Celestial Knight: yea red's in fel made sure young player's can't go to fel
    Elijah Cross: Live and learn as in the days of old?
    CharGar: exactly
    Masta Blasta: amen !
    Mesanna: well lets evaluate the towns seperately
    Mesanna: I really don't have an answer right now
    Exavior: ok
    Exavior: and
    Exavior: the grieving in town i understand
    Nyx: maybe something like faction guards that the towns could purchase for x amount of gold a week
    Exavior: but what if others come to your town and grieve you
    Exavior: maybe have some whay that a town can work for rewards to better the town?
    Mesanna: well I know what I would love to say =)
    Arin: say it
    Gareth: death to em all? heh
    Mesanna: but I will just say this, no matter what we are always going to have players
    Exavior: that would be a way for a community to work together to benifit others
    Mesanna: some players live to grief
    Prowler: dont flap yap and u dont get ur fel house camped
    Masta Blasta: griefers help make the game, dont hate them :)
    EM Vladimere: so do PK :)
    Mesanna: guards would require publishes
    Exavior: ok i am done thank you for your time
    EM Dudley: Char
    Mesanna: we do have some restrictions as to what we can do without coding and publishes
    EM Vladimere: be nice Char :)
    CharGar: i will try
    CharGar: :)
    Mesanna: Hello Char
    CharGar: ty for ur time
    CharGar: i will try to be brief
    CharGar: ever since the discussion of player towns has started
    CharGar: i betcha at least 10 new player run towns have started up
    CharGar: within the last month
    CharGar: we need to establish
    CharGar: guidelines
    CharGar: so that player towns are not coming and going
    Tancred RedStar: hear hear
    CharGar: i dont have one
    CharGar: but from what i hear tonite
    CharGar: my few houses on horseshoe island
    Celestial Knight: player's come and go..lost u'r job there u go
    CharGar: could be a player town
    Phoenix: *nods*
    CharGar: and get a banner and teleporter
    CharGar: we need to avoid this
    CharGar: to not cause problems in the future
    CharGar: this is my opinion
    CharGar: of course
    CharGar: but throwing it out htere
    CharGar: we had a handful of towns
    CharGar: uptill the last month
    CharGar: now we have 100
    CharGar: exagerated of course
    Phoenix: *chuckles*
    Mesanna: of course

    Mesanna: a nice vendor mall
    Mesanna: or a nice bar to gather in
    Mesanna: there are so many different ways
    Mesanna: Thanks Exavior =P

    Mesanna: of course I just built that one as a quick example
    Sinhi: *nods* Just wanted to be sure on that.
    Sinhi: To promote running into people. I thought it would be a good idea to
    Sinhi: lock down benches on the roads. Some may stop to chit chat.
    Sinhi: That is all. *smiles*
    Mesanna: Thats not out of the question
    EM Vladimere: humie pit stop

    EM Vladimere: :)
    Visago: :)
    Mesanna: thank you
    Visago: sorry about that
    Visago: my first question, how would you like the community to communicate what it decides a player town
    Visago: is
    Visago: is
    Visago: is
    Visago: woops
    Visago: hit the speach limit :)
    Mesanna: well you can do one of several things
    Mesanna: you can pick a speaker
    Mesanna: and I can return to hear your choices
    Mesanna: or you can email me
    Visago: do you have a time line for this? I'd hate us to miss the boat
    Mesanna: or you can tell your EM's and they can rely they information
    Mesanna: no I will not put a time line on this
    Mesanna: you will not miss the boat
    Visago: excellent
    Mesanna: I will make time to do this
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*
    Tancred RedStar: *claps*
    Sinhi: HA-OOH! HA-OOH! HA-OOH!
    Se'an Silverfoot: Thank you!
    Darth Oni: *cheers*
    Niva the Savage: HA-OOH! HA-OOH! HA-OOH!
    Visago: another question is, how will towns be removed from the system if they should fail
    Se'an Silverfoot: **claps**
    Mesanna: Tancred you changed your text!
    Tancred RedStar: just for you
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Mesanna: Congrats
    Mesanna: thank you!
    Mesanna: you rock
    Gunga Din: i think we are all missing the pt
    EM Vladimere: we need to get them started before we worry about removeing them
    Mesanna: what do you mean Gunga
    Visago: true, but its easier to have a framework then to work it in later
    Gunga Din: i'm running my tavern not for a teleporter
    Gunga Din: we are not trying for teleporters
    Gunga Din: i think, blessings or towns and single establisments
    EM Dudley: May I speak for a moment?
    Gunga Din: would be more helpful
    Gunga Din: if you are here for a teleporter
    Gunga Din: you are missing
    Gunga Din: the point of the community
    EM Dudley: *looks to Visago*
    Tancred RedStar: true dat
    EM Vladimere: remember this is a 1st time ever happening, we need to take one step at a time
    EM Dudley: You have the floor sir, may I interject?
    Gunga Din: aye
    Visago: sure, if your asking me :)
    EM Dudley: Thankee
    EM Dudley: There's been a lot of discussion about what a town is, or how we shall define them
    EM Dudley: How we will know which towns are which
    EM Dudley: Who will get the teleporters and so on and so forth
    EM Dudley: And one of the resounding answers to that question
    EM Dudley: Is that this is your shard
    EM Dudley: And we wish for YOU to decide that based on the decsions made by those involved
    EM Dudley: I would be more than anxious to develop a scenario in which the Crown recognizes these towns
    EM Dudley: Developso a registry
    EM Dudley: After all, this is a Roleplaying game
    Tancred RedStar: do it!
    Se'an Silverfoot: **claps**
    Niva the Savage: Even orcs know cities!
    EM Dudley: And while we are discussing out of character mechanics this evening
    Allistair: Here here!
    Niva the Savage: Paxlair!
    EM Dudley: I am very much for handling this IN character
    Tancred RedStar: erm, we're not *all* RP'ers tho
    Niva the Savage: GG!
    Masta Blasta: we dont take kindly to role players ! :D
    Niva the Savage: Silverdale!
    EM Dudley: That is true Tancred
    Darth Oni: no
    Tancred RedStar: I'm kind of RP-lite
    Darth Oni: silvervale
    Niva the Savage: Glyenfield!
    EM Dudley: Not everyone is a Roleplayer to the direct meaning of the word
    Masta Blasta: lol
    Niva the Savage: Village
    EM Dudley: However, every one fulfills some role in the community
    Allistair: but a community is a bunch of roles that play together
    EM Dudley: And that is what we are trying to support and promote
    Se'an Silverfoot: **claps**
    Niva the Savage: Dragon's Watch!
    Tancred RedStar: we gonna nominate a village idiot then?
    Tancred RedStar: hehe
    Gareth: Ill be it!
    EM Dudley: *chuckles*
    Lobonyx: *wry smile*
    EM Vladimere: where did the troll get too
    Yoshi: Still missing the point of this
    EM Vladimere: lol
    Gareth: Winfield is alive again
    EM Dudley: All I wanted to add
    EM Dudley: Carry on Visago
    Visago: In regards to my question, I meant it in the sense of mechanics,
    Visago: as you mentioned Dudley
    Visago: we have had towns fail on the shard before
    Visago: I wouldn't want gates or what not scattered through out the land
    Visago: or people fighting over them as idocs
    Visago: our critieas will dictate
    Visago: if a town stands or falls
    Visago: of course
    Gunga Din: great pt
    Visago: however, in regards to what makes a town a town
    Visago: I would suggest that focus be given to the events
    Visago: they are what bring people together
    Visago: not buildings
    Gunga Din: well said
    Visago: I own 4 buildings in one spot, and nobody visits me :)
    Visago: thank you for your time EM's, Mesanna
    Gareth: Events held in the town or can they be outside of the town Vis?
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*
    Visago: I believe events can be held anywhere
    Phoenix: *claps*
    Visago: if they are in the name of the town/group
    Visago: what does it matter
    Gareth: *nods*
    Visago: towns give focus
    Lobonyx: *clap*
    Visago: events give life
    Visago: and community
    Gareth: unless you die at the event :)
    Tancred RedStar: well said
    NANOC: *claps*
    Darth Oni: *cheers*
    Sinhi: hrr hrr
    Gareth: *Claps*
    Visago: I die at my events all the time, hehe
    Gareth: hehe
    EM Dudley: Winfield is up next
    Elijah Cross: Wow, so philosophic
    Tancred RedStar: someone poke Winfield awake
    Gareth: Winfield sent me some questions
    Gareth: HE is having trouble logging in.
    Mesanna: If your doing this for personal gain then your doing it for the wrong reason
    EM Dudley: Ok
    NANOC: *claps*
    Gunga Din: That was my point heh
    Gunga Din: u said it better
    Gareth: I wanted to ask ... there are already some towns ready to proceed, have been around for years,
    Gareth: ready for tours to show EMs, have been involved in community, etc. etc. What do we do next? D
    Allistair: *claps*
    Gareth: Do we reach the EMs to get banners and teleporters to start the ideas rolling? See what works?
    Gareth: Do we email the EMs with ideas? Which EM? To help define ideas to select towns for these 'rew
    You see: Winfield [Pax]
    Tancred RedStar: there he is
    Gareth: Now he back ehhe :)
    John Duke: he is asking your question

    Gareth: Cmon down'
    John Duke: speech time
    John Duke: yay
    Mesanna: Lets start with banners, I believe Dudley has a really good idea to earn the teleporters
    Niva the Savage: Orc Slave not get paper from Niva!
    Allistair: agreed
    CharGar: CHEERS!
    Mesanna: schedule your banners with Dudley and Vlad
    Gareth: Dudley gonna make us bake cookies for em isnt he? *smiles*
    Daria Blackmoore: lol
    NANOC: :)
    EM Dudley: You'll have to satisfy the Crown
    Mesanna: they will send me locations and I will come place them
    Gareth: *nods*
    Tancred RedStar: We knew Casca was crooked all along!
    Mesanna: Be nice to Dudley
    CharGar: dudley took cookies from casca
    CharGar: :)

    EM Dudley: Phoenix is next if WInfield is finished
    Exavior: if there is any town out there who did not start for personal gain toss the first stone
    EM Vladimere: That is not a flac jacket but really a corset in desguise
    Winfield: I have my answer to the "how to get started"
    Winfield: But have one other question.
    Prowler: i dont throw stones i park a boulder in ur yard
    Winfield: How should we continue to discuss this? Throw out suggestions, our experiences with towns, etc.?
    Winfield: On the UO Forums? On Stratics? The threads that are under way now?
    Winfield: *listens*
    Daria Blackmoore: Can always use our HoC
    EM Vladimere: sofe try again
    Winfield: HOC for weekly ideas is great idea.
    EM Dudley: We can always have special Commons workshops
    Mesanna: yes it is
    Winfield: I like the idea of workshops too.
    Nyx: but not for persons on a 3rd shift schedule
    Winfield: In the realm.
    Exavior: prowler i expect a boulder in the yard when i get home
    Winfield: Thank you, I am finished.
    Daria Blackmoore: Haha
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*
    Tancred RedStar: *claps*
    Winfield: Great effort! Thanks!
    Gareth: *Claps*

    Phoenix: Thank you also for the banners
    EM Vladimere: Thank you for the kind words
    Phoenix: they have been suggested at many townhall meetings
    Phoenix: and I am glad you still have your notes
    Phoenix: *grins*
    Mesanna: lol
    Phoenix: I would like to make a suggestion if possible as this is about community
    Phoenix: Possibly we could have an event announcer at the hub
    Gareth: [email protected]
    Phoenix: that you could use keywords such as Guardian Gate
    CharGar: nice idea
    Phoenix: announcer would say Archer competion Dec 5th 9p
    Phoenix: So we do not need to drop runes or books
    Phoenix: but can get the word out
    Phoenix: I dont know how much work this would involve but a suggestion
    Phoenix: Thank you
    Phoenix: dont want to add more work as I enjoy the storylines the em provide us
    Mesanna: sooo how about you guys just being able to place books with event schedules for the week
    Mesanna: down by your banners?
    Phoenix: *nods*
    Phoenix: that would work or monthly
    Mesanna: these can be locked down by the EM's pretty easy
    Phoenix: *nods*
    Mesanna: yep
    Phoenix: would also let us make sure we do not step on another event
    Tancred RedStar: that is a big issue
    Mesanna: exactly
    Phoenix: Thank you very much again for your time
    Gareth: *Claps*
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*

    Phoenix: possibly a town message board with the banner
    Lazarus: What about a message board at each bank that we can put events?
    Phoenix: *listens to whispers in ear*

    Prowler: so if the town grows
    Prowler: is good if the towns go
    Prowler: is fine the items return back to the game
    Prowler: as we all know
    Prowler: the loyalty rating went well for turmer
    Prowler: what about doing town loyalty ratings
    Prowler: for the items
    Prowler: so if the town goes away
    Prowler: so do the items
    Prowler: if it growns
    Prowler: more is good
    CharGar: not a bad idea
    Prowler: does this possably work
    Celestial Knight: i agree good idea
    Allistair: aye
    Mesanna: that requires something out of our hands and would require a new system installed
    Prowler: yes
    Prowler: but
    Tancred RedStar: next expansion, lol
    Nyx: and who would pass out these points?
    CharGar: aahhh
    Mesanna: thats not a bad idea and I will bring it up to the team
    Prowler: right now as we speak
    Reporter: Please put me in the Que, EM Dudley.
    Prowler: the team is working on loyalty ratings for factions
    Prowler: didnt see why not they could throw that inb also
    Exavior: auctions are 100 pts
    Prowler: *shrugs
    Grimlar Mithrax: also perhaps a mix of some of the things...there have been some really good ideas this evening
    Mesanna: we are working on redoing factions yes
    Prowler: right
    Prowler: but i felt
    Prowler: after seeing so many good questions
    Prowler: this was a solid fix
    Prowler: to it all
    Prowler: bigger the town
    Prowler: more ratings
    Prowler: and if the town falls
    Celestial Knight: it's good idea because >u can tell what town is helpin and those who are welp u know
    Prowler: the goods go bu bye
    Prowler: seems fair to all
    Celestial Knight: lol
    Mesanna: yes but please understand it would be a seperate system
    Prowler: in my humble oppion
    Arin: you dont have to be big to be good
    Mesanna: it would have to be different rules etc
    Prowler: yes
    Celestial Knight: true
    Mesanna: its a good idea
    Prowler: but i was just throwing my oppion out there
    Prowler: seemed fair to me
    Prowler: is all
    Mesanna: but right now I am looking to do something we can do now
    Prowler: just a thought
    Mesanna: not wait for something for the future
    Prowler: well banners now u said fine
    Mesanna: does that make sense?
    Prowler: is a start
    Celestial Knight: one good thing i have heard tonite that sound's great :)
    Prowler: was just a idea
    Prowler: to ponder on
    Prowler: thats all

    EM Dudley: The hour grows late
    Tancred RedStar: indeed
    EM Dudley: Perhaps we chould continue with tonight's topic?
    Rivi Ravenwynd: yes and I think we need to move back to banners
    Yoshi: ok
    Tancred RedStar: excellent idea
    Lobonyx: please.
    EM Dudley: As much as I enjoy salamii
    EM Vladimere: The strike of the witching hour, 12 bells and all is well
    EM Dudley: As it is the most seductive of the salted meats...
    Prowler: ok
    Prowler: thankyou for your tiem mesanna
    Tancred RedStar: you'd be surprised what the sailors of Trinsic boast
    Prowler: im sure u wont forget me
    Prowler: any time soon
    Prowler: im sure
    Mesanna: thank you for the laugh
    Prowler: anytime
    Rivi Ravenwynd: my concern involves griefing and losing banners/teloporterws
    Rivi Ravenwynd: if town A gets a banner/teleporter,, but town B goes to it and greives the Town A banner
    Daria Blackmoore: *rubs feet*
    Rivi Ravenwynd: Town A should not lose their banner b/c of auction of town b.. that would not be fair imo
    Darth Oni: *chuckles*
    Niva the Savage: Trade Town B?
    Vek the Savage: *woggles*
    Mesanna: why would town A lose their banner
    Vek the Savage: hrr hrr
    Rivi Ravenwynd: it was mentioned that ppl grieved u lose ur banner
    Rivi Ravenwynd: but others can greive ur town and that should not cause banner loss
    Mesanna: giving and taking away will not be done lightly
    Rivi Ravenwynd: and it imo should be b/c of actions of ppl not in the town
    Rivi Ravenwynd: for exapmle let say SHE gets one of these.. and then others release greater dragons by our banne
    Rivi Ravenwynd: we have no control over griefers
    Mesanna: it would not be their fault
    Prowler: rivi you live in fel? if not mute point
    Rivi Ravenwynd: ok good
    Niva the Savage: Beast not care Gold or Gray!
    Niva the Savage: Beast wild!
    Rivi Ravenwynd: We dont live in fel but it is not a mute point
    John Duke: where's my taxes Niva
    Rivi Ravenwynd: ppl release aggro monsters to kill others al lthe time in tram
    Niva the Savage: *throws bull dung at Orc Slave*
    Rivi Ravenwynd: that is grieving even thouggh not in fel
    John Duke: I'll take that as a down payment
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Mesanna: yes they do but this will not be held against the town
    Daria Blackmoore: I'd think the claim of griefing would have to be investiagted no snap judgement
    Rivi Ravenwynd: Great
    Rivi Ravenwynd: ty
    Sofie: MAKE IT STOP!
    Rivi Ravenwynd: :)
    Rivi Ravenwynd: hugs Messana
    Mesanna: your welcome
    Elijah Cross: He's serious Niva...
    Elijah Cross: *chuckles*
    Celestial Knight: don't remeber someone saying u'r banner could be taken.
    Tancred RedStar: Was I next?
    Niva the Savage: Niva not give Orc Slave gold!
    EM Dudley: Tancred
    Gareth: Capture the banner? heh
    Daria Blackmoore: hehe
    Mesanna: Hi

    EM Vladimere: the town would cause the loss of their banner, not other players
    John Duke: yay
    Tancred RedStar: got the text color going this time
    Tancred RedStar: the hour grows late, I will try to be quick
    Mesanna: yes you do
    Tancred RedStar: as a quick aside however
    Tancred RedStar: in terms of some of the earlier misgivings about the EM's
    Tancred RedStar: and while Dudley is the happy go-lucky one
    Tancred RedStar: and Vlad cane be gruff
    Tancred RedStar: if you ask around
    Tancred RedStar: have a poll
    Tancred RedStar: show of ahnds
    Tancred RedStar: hands
    Tancred RedStar: etc
    Tancred RedStar: I think you will find
    Tancred RedStar: most people think they both do a good job
    Allistair: aye
    Elijah Cross: *cheers*
    NANOC: *claps*
    Tancred RedStar: ask around sometime incognito
    Tancred RedStar: you will see
    Daria Blackmoore: *applauds*
    Tancred RedStar: ok
    Tancred RedStar: With all due respect, I think a good idea would be to have a modest time requirement for a "town
    Tancred RedStar: like 3 or 4 months
    Tancred RedStar: This will help weed out the wannabes and reward people who really put effort into building their to
    Tancred RedStar: towns
    Tancred RedStar: It took us *years* to eventually get all the houses around Gyldenfeld through
    Tancred RedStar: IDOC'ing, donations, trading, buying, etc.
    Tancred RedStar: If theyre serious about their town, I dont think 3 or 4 months is too much to ask
    Winfield: *hear hear*
    Tancred RedStar: Patience is the 9th Virtue in UO
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Tancred RedStar: I'm also concerned about this whole concept/project being kept simple initially
    Niva the Savage: *holds up both hands*
    Tancred RedStar: Once Chesapeake has this, other shards will be clamoring for it
    Tancred RedStar: it needs ease of scalability or there will be problems
    Gareth: I believe catskills already is.
    Tancred RedStar: and no one wants to see it go away
    Mesanna: Catskills has banners
    Tancred RedStar: then we must invade and destroy them
    Niva the Savage: (Baja has banners as well)
    Tancred RedStar: oops, wrong speech
    Lobonyx: :O
    Daria Blackmoore: hehe
    Daria Blackmoore: woot
    Mesanna: and honestly I have only done like 9 banners for towns there
    Gareth: I prolly said it wrong. I always do lol
    Mesanna: but
    Mesanna: taking your idea
    Mesanna: about pending towns
    Mesanna: have the towns apply for a banner
    [Alliance][John Duke]: and then we must invade and destroy them?
    [Alliance][Tancred RedStar]: that's right! til theyre all but wind-blown cinders!!!
    Mesanna: put up a pending simple pending banner with a date
    [Alliance][John Duke]: hehehehe
    Mesanna: that way it will be easy to for all to track
    Gareth: *nods*
    Daria Blackmoore: Not bad
    Gareth: We gave dudley a book.
    Tancred RedStar: no one wants to see a "town" pop up as a facade for the next gold-seller's megamall
    Tancred RedStar: Lastly
    Mesanna: putting up a simple white banner with a date on it will not hurt anything
    Mesanna: imo
    Tancred RedStar: and thank you and both you EM's for your time tonight
    Tancred RedStar: Lastly
    Tancred RedStar: can you give us even a vague, vague hint about 2009 Holiday gifts? :)
    Mesanna: and it will let all know how long they were around before getting full town rights
    Mesanna: oh
    John Duke: will there be dead savages?
    EM Dudley: Yoshi is next
    Mesanna: No dead savages sorry
    Niva the Savage: HA-OOH! HA-OOH! HA-OOH!
    Mesanna: but I think you will like the gifts
    Elijah Cross: *chuckles at John*
    Daria Blackmoore: hehe
    John Duke: she said savages
    Tancred RedStar: plz no candles with bows again, lol
    Prowler: 4ft x mas salamis?
    John Duke: there might be a dead savage
    Tancred RedStar: thank you
    John Duke: instead of lots
    Niva the Savage: Try!
    John Duke: keep that in mind Niva
    Naomie De'Layne: *ponders that....*
    Yoshi: Thank You for hearing me mesanna
    Winfield: *cheers for Yoshi*
    Mesanna: of course
    Tancred RedStar: do I need to sit elsewhere?
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Mesanna: Greetings
    Yoshi: thanks to both EM
    NANOC: *claps*
    Elijah Cross: I would Tancred...
    Yoshi: events are wonderful
    Sofie: My teeth!
    Elijah Cross: *smiles*
    Phoenix: *claps*
    Yoshi: when we first started talking
    John Duke: winfield will protect me
    Yoshi: about linking the communities
    Yoshi: it was also for the new players
    Yoshi: coming into the cities
    Yoshi: and not knowing where to go
    Yoshi: If we start putting up teleporters to communities
    Yoshi: and new players go through
    Yoshi: no one is there
    Yoshi: they are not going to know what is going on
    Niva the Savage: Vistors too!
    EM Vladimere: thats why the locked down books to tell when your events are happening
    Yoshi: They are not going to see a bunch of teleporters here
    Yoshi: and say
    Yoshi: I think Ill go to this community
    Niva the Savage: Good Hunting all!
    Yoshi: Just a suggestion ...that we need to keep
    Lobonyx: *wonders if savages get cold*
    Yoshi: our new players in the back of everyones mind
    Winfield: *cheers about new players*
    Yoshi: Thank You
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*
    EM Vladimere: i try to tame Niva all the time :)
    Mesanna: I agree we do not want to add to the frustration of new players
    Darth Oni: *cheers*
    Lobonyx: How is that working?
    EM Vladimere: Slowly
    EM Vladimere: lol
    Phoenix: Aye they come into haven how will they even know of this hub?
    Mesanna: Its a hard balance
    Lobonyx: *smiles*
    Yoshi: yes
    Yoshi: and having no one around
    Prowler: what about blocking the teleporters
    Yoshi: if they choose to go through this teleporter
    Prowler: so young players cannt use them
    Yoshi: is going toconfuse them even more
    Yoshi: if no one is around
    Prowler: that gives the young player the 40 hours game time to figure things out
    Gareth: Then have a general warning book infront of the hub?
    EM Vladimere: your over thinking this
    Prowler: yes yes
    Nyx: *wonders who has honestly seen a true new player in years*
    Vek the Savage: (aye a book or informative sign)
    Prowler: think inside the 4ft salami .. not out side of it
    Prowler: right em vlad?
    Lobonyx: :/
    EM Vladimere: no comment
    EM Vladimere: lol
    Prowler: ugh
    Prowler: lol
    Vek the Savage: =(

    Winfield: *raises hand for the queue*
    Vek the Savage: (high fives allistair))
    Daria Blackmoore: *claps*
    Lobonyx: Whatever is decided requirements to be a town or city
    Allistair: *(connects with high five)
    Lobonyx: and if a town in progress is not yet meeting that standard
    Lobonyx: but will in later months
    Lobonyx: can they still get a banner?
    Lobonyx: after they meet requirements, say much later from now.
    Naomie De'Layne: Enjoyed!!! Take Care all!!
    EM Vladimere: nite
    Sofie: You just can't find a good Britannian dentist these days...
    Baby Bear: off me
    Prowler: see em vlad
    Baby Bear: lol
    Vek the Savage: Vek sorry
    Baby Bear: lol
    Prowler: i offered to remove that tooth with a shovel at my home and ur not in pain anymore
    Baby Bear: k
    Mesanna: when the towns first apply I would think they would get a plain banner
    Mesanna: with their application date maybe
    Lobonyx: I see. And we apply by emailing you or Valdimere?
    Mesanna: replaced by a selected banner after they meet the time requirements?
    Sofie: i'm trying to recall eating candy.....
    Gareth: *Nods*
    Sofie: i must have chased it down with an ale...
    Mesanna: Yes email your EM's
    Baby Bear: cool an establihsed date ?
    Lobonyx: And that is how we officially establish our towns (even ones Like Paxlair that have been around)
    EM Vladimere: [email protected]
    Mesanna: you guys know what towns have been around for years
    Mesanna: they will bypass the waiting period I would think
    Arin: they been around but not active
    Lobonyx: Okay, that makes sense I think.
    Mesanna: newly established towns are more of a concern
    Lobonyx: Well, Paxlair was just an example of many towns.
    Mesanna: if a town is not active why would they apply
    EM Dudley: Perhaps a nomination process by which non residents can nominate a town?
    Lobonyx: We have many very awesome towns that are around.
    Mesanna: why would they even care?
    Vek the Savage: *falls asleep almost light baby bears hair ablaze*
    Daria Blackmoore: hehe
    Arin: they use to be active in fel days but not since
    Mesanna: let me show you what I am talking about
    Mesanna: give me a sec

    *Mesanna goes to the southern end of the tent and sets up a sample banner*



    Nyx: how many towns are wanting these banners/teleporters?
    Lobonyx: *waits patiently*
    Baby Bear: couldent read that in journal so go to sleep
    Baby Bear: :p
    Vek the Savage: *hrr hrr*
    Prowler: i am just interested in the banner
    Prowler: i am simple
    Baby Bear: just watch that torch
    Lobonyx: We just want a banner when we're town worthy.
    Prowler: where my home is isnt well
    Prowler: where my home is i should not be penalized
    Prowler: for woods
    Vek the Savage: *test*
    EM Vladimere: in case anyone sent me an e-mail I wont be checking it till tommorrow sometime :)
    Lobonyx: *noted*
    Lobonyx: oo
    EM Dudley: That's where my pillowcase went!
    Daria Blackmoore: lol
    Gunga Din: lol
    Darth Oni: lol
    Phoenix: *laughs*
    Baby Bear: lol
    Vek the Savage: hrr hrr
    Lobonyx: :O
    Tancred RedStar: I was thinking shower scene

    Gunga Din: yea that would work great
    Daria Blackmoore: Very nice
    Baby Bear: my dar u grew
    Vek the Savage: HA OOH!
    Lobonyx: that would be the starter, or something like that?
    Mesanna: yes thats my idea
    Prowler: well
    Daria Blackmoore: Sak is just makin friends hehe
    EM Dudley: It's very nice
    Prowler: better then a used diapier!
    Lobonyx: and then it could evolve as the town grows or earns points or whatever system is made.
    Sakurai: sorry
    Gunga Din: mb smaller outposts could just have banners
    Baby Bear: humm how mch was that lap dance
    Mesanna: maybe the name of the town just for the records
    Daria Blackmoore: no worries friend
    Exavior: will you be visiting the towns for a tour?
    EM Vladimere: Sugguestion: Temp banner like that one with a locked down rune till you get town/city status
    Vek the Savage: Vek accept orc heads
    Lobonyx: ((and my question was answered, thats all I had and thank you very much))
    Sofie: ARRGH! My tooth hurts sooo much!
    EM Vladimere: once you get town/city then a perm banner with a teleporter
    Phoenix: *nods*
    EM Vladimere: again sugguestion
    Tancred RedStar: like a vetting process
    Gunga Din: for smaller areas, how abotu just banners, no teleporter?
    Mesanna: makes sense
    Nyx: Do we invite you and the Ems for a town tour?
    Mesanna: not every town needs teleporters
    Gunga Din: right
    Gunga Din: for my project, i just need recognition
    EM Vladimere: yes, send e-mail asking for time to visit
    Baby Bear: then they would be up every where
    EM Vladimere: we reply with time to meet and where
    Darth Oni: runes and/or books nice too
    Sofie: ARRGH! My tooth hurts sooo much!
    Nyx: ty Vlad
    Lobonyx: *pulls tooth out*
    Gunga Din: if u just reward larger areas
    EM Vladimere: i feel for you Sofie
    Baby Bear: im going orc hunting lol
    Mesanna: how much candy have you eaten
    EM Dudley: This could be folded into a process of applying for township with the Crown
    Gunga Din: u wont be promoting the community
    Vek the Savage: hrr hrr
    EM Dudley: In which the Royal Registrar would visit and tour and such
    Tancred RedStar: I like that idea
    Allistair: aye
    NANOC: aye
    Winfield: *likes Dudley's idea, fold it into RPing with the Queen*
    Nyx: In Jux Mani Xen - Blood Oath
    Nyx: Wouldnt that require all towns to start at square 1
    Prowler: well
    Prowler: i have a question now
    Baby Bear: towns have mayors
    Prowler: on that

    Sofie: You just can't find a good Britannian dentist these days...
    EM Vladimere: Active ones
    EM Dudley: Not sure I know what you're referring too...
    EM Vladimere: was a sugguestion :)

    Prowler: ok ty
    EM Vladimere: agreed
    EM Dudley: We do have a three left in the Que

    Tancred RedStar: well some towns like Nidaros or Duir or Mythndale are long gone
    EM Dudley: Gunga was next
    Nyx: right and not ride on the coattaols of age
    Prowler: if that was so
    Prowler: ill take the first cloud city
    Gareth: hehehe
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Gunga Din: I just want to make the pt to give merit to smaller areas as well
    Exavior: can i ride in a wagon in the caravan?
    Prowler: uh
    Exavior: sorry i was just thinking
    Allistair: established towns that are still active should already be accepted
    Prowler: u can be in charge exaviour
    Tancred RedStar: give merit? or have them earn it?
    Prowler: of the town hobby horse
    Gunga Din: aye
    Gunga Din: earn
    Exavior: yes
    Sofie: AAAH! It feels like someone kicked me in the teeth!
    Gunga Din: I for one dont need teleporters
    Tancred RedStar: my town started when we opened the Red Wolf and just started having events
    Tancred RedStar: at first no one came, lol
    Tancred RedStar: but we just kept at it
    Tancred RedStar: and over time lots of people came
    Gunga Din: but a banner to bring people or setup events
    Tancred RedStar: a banner won't magically bring people, there has to be a reason to go there
    Gunga Din: right
    Vek the Savage: oo
    Winfield: Over the past 11 years, there have been about 15 player towns on chessy, 3-4 blessed, & 6 left.
    Allistair: if you build it they will come, lol
    Vek the Savage: Vek like
    Gunga Din: but u can promote events through it
    Lobonyx: lol
    EM Vladimere: the teleporters are great for those that cant recall
    Tancred RedStar: start simple, host a guided hunt or something
    Bjorn Darkstone: good night all, thank you for your time
    Winfield: Just a historical note.
    Exavior: yes agreed
    Tancred RedStar: treasure hunting night, ask ppl to bring maps
    Tancred RedStar: or a fishing contest, just need a boat
    Gunga Din: that is all, thx for hosting this meeting
    EM Dudley: Masta still here?
    Tancred RedStar: start simple
    Mesanna: your welcome
    Arin: yes
    Vek the Savage: Vek leave now too
    Masta Blasta: yes
    EM Dudley: Masta you're up
    Masta Blasta: so if i were able to make my houses in felucca into a town
    Masta Blasta: would i then be able to connect that town with an auction house in luna
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Masta Blasta: like a teleporter between the two locations
    Exavior: me too
    Nyx: just get a 12th yr vet reward for that
    Masta Blasta: that only connects houses
    Exavior: oh hi vlad didn't see you there
    Masta Blasta: this is town to house
    EM Vladimere: been here all night :)
    Gareth: Cant miss the orange :)
    Nyx: In Jux Mani Xen - Blood Oath
    Baby Bear: i want what he is smokin
    Nyx: can an em lock down a 12th yr telly on a road?
    Nyx: if we own
    Reporter: I highly dislike this notion, as it ruins the entire idea of a town.
    Arin: you cant have a auction in fel
    Mesanna: I am against that idea
    Reporter: A town is supposed to be a unified area. Not a dispersed assortment of homes.
    Grimlar Mithrax: i said my farewells thinking i wasnt going to be back in time
    Masta Blasta: also i have a question about something totally off topic
    Gareth: yay Hi grimlar
    Mesanna: I really don't want to leave a town to a house
    Darth Oni: wb grim
    Grimlar Mithrax: thank ye
    Grimlar Mithrax: hail all
    Grimlar Mithrax: again
    Grimlar Mithrax: *smiles*
    Prowler: hello
    Masta Blasta: why is the R word highly illegal to say? i mean people say it and get perma banned
    Tancred RedStar: oh boy
    Allistair: Thanks to our wonderful EMs and Devs, good night to you all!
    Masta Blasta: it really is not that offensive of a word, its just an action
    EM Vladimere: g'nite
    Masta Blasta: people say it in terms of pvp or think it
    Reporter: *slaps her face into her hand lightly*
    Grimlar Mithrax: farewell Allistair
    Allistair: keep up the great work
    Mesanna: I know
    Mesanna: its an old rule
    Masta Blasta: ah
    Phoenix: *nods*
    Masta Blasta: well they should change it...
    Mesanna: kinda of like saying bomb on a plane
    Phoenix: 11 years at least
    Masta Blasta: lol
    EM Vladimere: goes back almost 11 years
    Darth Oni: *is clueless*
    Baby Bear: me to oni
    EM Vladimere: very old rule
    Tancred RedStar: just don't say it, lol
    Darth Oni: *chuckles*
    Tancred RedStar: plenty other words to use
    Mesanna: I used to live in a town that had a law on the books
    Exavior: so no ___ or plundering
    Mesanna: that you could not wear red heels down town
    Gareth: hehe
    Daria Blackmoore: lol
    NANOC: :)
    Phoenix: *laughs*
    Masta Blasta: :)
    Baby Bear: OOHhhH
    Mesanna: I am not kidding
    EM Dudley: It was illegal to eat onions on Sunday in Chicago until 1996
    EM Vladimere: so you tell them its dark pink
    Tancred RedStar: I live in a town where you have to be a certain number of feet away
    Mesanna: it was a sign you were in a very old profession =P
    Arin: you cant wear shorts in turkey
    NANOC: :)
    Tancred RedStar: yes you can
    Masta Blasta: also, what would it take to get ea's policy on returning lost items and lost characters changed?
    EM Vladimere: You cant shoot buffalo from 2nd floor hotel in texas
    Masta Blasta: like where would i have to get started to do this
    Grimlar Mithrax: a heck of a lot more GM's
    Grimlar Mithrax: LOL
    Exavior: in alabama your not allowed to tie your geraffe to a hitching post
    Nyx: so cursing isnt illegal
    Masta Blasta: to me, it is the most horrible policy ever
    Grimlar Mithrax: hehe
    Phoenix: Cant use profanity in from of women and children in Michigan
    EM Vladimere: depends on who your curseing at
    Tancred RedStar: has the meeting regarding the town stuff come to a close?
    Masta Blasta: if someone hacks an account and deletes your character, ea will not help at all
    Prowler: masta
    Prowler: ur kickin a dead horse
    Reporter: No, we are just extremely offtopic. *sighs*
    EM Dudley: There is still one person left on teh que
    Prowler: those rules came out in the first 6 months of uo
    Prowler: when was beta
    Prowler: they wont change it
    Masta Blasta: well im asking since we have a dev team member here
    Masta Blasta: that doesnt happen often
    Tancred RedStar: this is what happens every time
    Prowler: yes
    Prowler: but
    Nyx: An Nox - Cure
    Nyx: well for example
    Tancred RedStar: and it's annoying for most everyone
    Prowler: some words arnt ment to be used
    Mesanna: Masta to be honest that rule is older than I am
    Masta Blasta: you guys talked enough about houses
    EM Vladimere: Mesanna is Dev Team, Not Legal Department
    Masta Blasta: and towns
    Nyx: what would be the difference
    Gareth: just have one quick suggestion
    Mesanna: and I have worked on UO for over 9 years and played it for 12
    EM Vladimere: Mesanna is Dev Team, Not Legal Department
    Masta Blasta: wow
    Masta Blasta: so how do i contact the legal department?
    Tancred RedStar: omg
    Exavior: i just want to see this game get better and more fun
    Gareth: *Face plant*
    Nyx: of saying the r word and rewording it to you were forcably fu**ed
    Phoenix: *shakes head*
    Baby Bear: ohh gezz
    Gareth: Demon Slayer is that you?
    Mesanna: as we all do

    Reporter: Thank you.
    EM Vladimere: [email protected]
    Gunga Din: no ,not the reporter !!
    Gareth: ooooo Vladdy made it public
    Gareth: :_)
    Reporter: Developer Lady Mesanna, Lord EM Dudley, Lord EM Vladimiere
    Reporter: I am very glad we have such dedicated staff as yourself. I have listened long and hard
    Reporter: And have observed the posts and threads about tonight for quite some time
    Reporter: I have heard many things addressed and answered quite well
    Reporter: And I have seen things that i both agree and disagree with
    Reporter: However, I must say that there are a few things I strongly disagree with.
    Bio: baby bear can i cuddle by u
    EM Vladimere: No Candy!!
    Reporter: I am very much against your offer, Lady Mesanna, of banks to player cities or organization
    Exavior: wait for it
    Baby Bear: sure
    Reporter: In any aspect.
    Baby Bear: looks like long night
    Bio: sweet
    Reporter: The reasoning behind this is that these do not support the community
    Reporter: but rather draw away from it.
    Gareth: I musta missed the bank thing heh
    Exavior: i dis agree
    Reporter: These additions to player towns
    Reporter: remove reasons to care about
    Reporter: Defend
    Reporter: Or protect the true cities of britannia
    Grimlar Mithrax: *looks at the lollipop*
    Grimlar Mithrax: Mmm
    Exavior: this will alow players to bank things they buy in town easyer
    Reporter: While we are all very pleased with our abilities to change and shape our worlds, our shards
    Gareth: The player cities will have random attacks as well.
    Tancred RedStar: theyre all empty except Haven and Luna, what do you mean?
    Reporter: There must be reasons to care about the other cities, or they will forever remain empty
    Reporter: I also disagree strongly with a 'Town items' initiative.
    Bio: omg noone will sit in luna anymore and burn counts
    Nyx: Reporter, what if you were new to a town and could not get back to a city a bank may be of
    Exavior: brit is to cluttered for me
    Tancred RedStar: give them the Magincia treatment!
    Reporter: This brings into the factor the same greed that plagues the current faction system
    Nyx: great need
    Reporter: Towns will be established merely for the items
    Reporter: Not for the progress of the community
    Reporter: While it will indeed encourage activities to be supported for the community
    Exavior: either way our town will grow
    Exavior: to help others
    Yoshi: Ill go
    Mesanna: Before you go much further
    Reporter: I am unsure that it should be gone about it directly for items.
    Reporter: Yes?
    Mesanna: I said there was an option to do something like that
    Mesanna: nothing has been put in concrete
    Prowler: *begins recruiting a linch mob*
    Reporter: That is why I wished to address it, calmly and at this time.
    Arin: repoter are u from this shard?
    Reporter: I did not see a single person object, and felt my opinion was needed.
    Prowler: *to help reporter off the shard*
    Tancred RedStar: show of hands?
    Reporter: I am from many shards; I do reside here on chesapeake as well.
    Nyx: Ill help
    Reporter: I count amongst my residences Chesapeake, Europa, Atlantic, and Catskills.
    Exavior: ok what draws people to luna?
    Rivi Ravenwynd: Well u didnt objections b/c majority hear did not fell as u do
    Mesanna: I just don't want you to get the wrong opinon here
    Winfield: I think the EMs at this point should keep all options open for enhancing the towns.
    Exavior: having all amminities in one area
    Mesanna: you see to feel like it was all mapped out
    Winfield: Even if it takes several years.
    Mesanna: and it has not been
    Reporter: I did not say my opinion was absolute nor that it should be held above others.
    Bio: *puts tape over reporters mouth*
    Baby Bear: lol
    Reporter: I must have misspoken then, and I apologize.
    Reporter: *bows head slightly*
    Baby Bear: yahhh
    Tancred RedStar: I liked the ice cream shop idea
    Bio: hehe
    Gareth: woot woot for ice creram
    Gareth: *cream
    Darth Oni: yes...
    Darth Oni: ice cream!
    Tancred RedStar: I scream
    Mesanna: You have every right to voice your opinion
    Grimlar Mithrax: in my opinion, everyone in entitled to their say
    EM Dudley: I kindly ask that everyone show each other the respect of not interupting the spearkers
    Baby Bear: ohh give the little grimlin his sce cream
    Grimlar Mithrax: *nods*
    EM Vladimere: My idea is the pillow looking like a marshmellow at this point in time
    Reporter: The other things, the banner and application process
    Mesanna: I just wanted to make sure you knew alot of things have been said tonight
    Reporter: I am quite happy to hear about, and agree fully.
    Mesanna: alot of suggestions
    Reporter: *nods*
    Reporter: I am concerned though, that perhaps
    Mesanna: You are a shard still have thing to finalize
    Reporter: Lord Dudley
    Mesanna: I am just getting it started
    Reporter: You said you have an idea for the towns to be accepted by the Queen, yes?
    Mesanna: That was Dudleys idea
    EM Dudley: In some light, aye. The final decision must rest with the citizens
    Reporter: I ask this
    Reporter: Because If it were so, I would be very pleased to see something similar
    Baby Bear: when do towns have queens
    EM Dudley: But the petition should be made to the Queen
    Reporter: Or at least a somewhat 'standardized' way to go about this
    Reporter: for most shards
    Freaky Deeky: hehe Camoflague I haz it
    EM Dudley: Afterall, you are in her Queendom.
    Baby Bear: yea dont think she will like that to mucjhj
    EM Vladimere: dont compair chessy to other shards
    Reporter: You must compare all shards to others in terms of fairness, EM Vladimiere
    Yoshi: sorry
    EM Vladimere: sorry i dont agree with that
    Prowler: uh em masanna dagger red.. someone getting shived
    Reporter: Were this for a single guild that had shown immense prowess
    Reporter: the likes of which were unheard
    EM Vladimere: what i do should not be compaired with what other em do
    Gareth: Each shard being different shows it unique/
    Reporter: Then yes, It should be entirely unique.
    Reporter: However, you are looking at a way to enrich the community...
    Darth Oni: *streches*
    Reporter: And your attitude in this matter seems as if you are saying...
    NANOC: Chesapeaks
    Reporter: The chesapeake community is superior to all others
    Freaky Deeky: Crashapeake!
    Reporter: And the others do not deserve a fair chance.
    NANOC: they have
    NANOC: EM's
    Reporter: *sighs*
    EM Vladimere: my oponion is chessy is the best shard online
    Tancred RedStar: word
    Baby Bear: woo hoo u know it
    Gareth: Their citizens should suggest it to their EMs
    Reporter: Mesanna is the one whom has to put in much of the work in this matter.
    Prowler: reporter
    Reporter: While yes, much of it is up to the EM's
    NANOC: We are here talking about OUR shard
    Reporter: It is unfair to not think of ANYONE else.
    Gareth: *Listens*
    Prowler: reporter?
    Reporter: This is as selfish as wishing for only your guild to acquire a teleporter.
    Prowler: em dudley and em vlad
    Gareth: :_/
    EM Vladimere: i honestly dont care what other shards do, I care what this shard does
    NANOC: You would know about that
    Prowler: are from other shards
    Tancred RedStar: why you making judgements on ppl
    Prowler: they em here
    Prowler: if the em's
    Reporter: I am not.
    Gareth: Dont judge Vladimere
    Reporter: I merely stated how it appeared.,
    Prowler: state chessy is best
    Winfield: *cheers for Vlad*
    EM Vladimere: i get paid to care about this shard
    Prowler: and there only a em here
    Prowler: that has something to be said
    Prowler: does it not
    Grimlar Mithrax: *cheers*
    EM Vladimere: and i do care
    Reporter: I believe you said earlier we are all entitled to our opinions...
    Reporter: Does that no longer hold true for me?
    Reporter: If so, I shall take my leave then.
    Grimlar Mithrax: may i interrupt for a moment?
    Reporter: Thank you for your consideration, Lady Mesanna.
    EM Vladimere: even if they did not pay me I would care more for this shard then any other
    Reporter: Thank you for yours, Lord Dudley.
    Gareth: awww
