    On January 9 at 8:30pm Eastern Time the Elven Song Community Center will be hosting a twist of it's standard raffle!

    This mystery raffle, proceeds to go towards the accumulation of more prize vault rewards for our free raffles, includes the hellhound mount, as well as various other mounts and prizes worth upwards of 165 million.

    There are forty chests, each with their own mystery prize(s) inside. You will be able to purchase keys for the chests from a vendor, located at the stage, for 200,000gp. When the gates open -- find the chest your key(s) open and claim your prize(s)!

    We will also be announcing the event for our Trammel Brit Crossroads Castle give away at this raffle and awarding the House Teleporter Set from our Archery Competition!

    So, if you have the money you can purchase more then 1 key cause it's going to be a feeding frenzy at that Vendor holding the keys ? "When the gates open -- find the chest your key(s) open and claim your prize(s)!" are the chests going to be locked down or do we have to worry about someone just picking them up for themselves ? By Gates do you mean the stage gates or are we going to somewhere the chests are ?

    Sorry about all the questions. Just wanted to know whats, what. Cause I can purchase me me a few keys ;)

    The questions are fine, I was actually discussing this tonight during the Town Hall. As much as I think it would be entertaining to see people buy their keys and run to find what chest it unlocks and open that chest, grabbing their items quickly... I believe it leaves open too much room for potential thievery.

    So everything you mentioned is accurate, it would be a feeding frenzy (I won't lie, it is fun when everyone RUNS to the steward to grab their ticket... so imagine keys and chests you have to figure out!) and yes, it would have been stage gates. All chests are already populated and located on the stage.

    The reputation of the Elven Song events is too important to me, to allow the idea that someone may be shorted by any possibility for thievery or inappropriate behavior. Therefore, each chest will be blind auctioned with the highest bidder recorded for pickup.

    There are so many new events being worked on for 2015, that we have begun expansion of the Community Center to a house next door. More on that later, but there is a lot in the 'works.'

    Please feel free to share your thoughts, concerns or ideas with me! I certainly love and welcome the feedback.
