    Well, in order to get more EM events, lets compile a reasonable list of possible events, and if we can do some of the leg work, with the current 1 EM, maybe it can be possible to pull off.

    This one is my big idea, and we can use it for a "Come to siege" event;

    The Amazing SP Race!
    Same idea as the amazing race. To be involved you must be on UOAM, or the new UOC server, so it can be monitored if you gate. Not sure how well that will work, but meh, worth a shot.

    Lets say you start in Del. A temp gate from Brit to Del for event. First you are given the rules. And off you go. First leg of the race is to run to Pap. No speed forms.

    When you get to Pap, a player meets you (since we have one EM and different speed rates). There will be a puzzle to solve (or not, can put puzzles elsewhere). Eventually you use the teleporter and go through to the magic shop.

    Run to the zoo. Same idea. And so on, and so forth. Im sure we can come up with a few puzzles and make sure that the legs, keep a nice clean flow through lower spawn areas, (since if players from other shards come, they wont have much for heals) and past player run shops, towns, etc to show what siege is more then just murder. Might draw some in.

    Say end at Kelmo's place, where he gets there forum name for a posting of the results. But really bans them on all forums but siege, so pretty much they might aswell come and play with us :p

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -A bag ball tourney (i know the league flopped)
    -SP Series of Dice.....
    -PvP tourney, 2v2...again
    -Archery Contest (shoot the targets, total scores)
    -Offical Cat Herding contest
    -chess/checkers/backgamon (dont they have backgamon)
    -2v2 Golem and Tinker vs Golem and Tinker
    -GZ Stealing contest. Players stand around an NPC area, and get stolen from. No PC can call guards, but rather if the NPC calls, and wacks. Its over for that thief. See how many items can be aquired. Most items wins UO.
    -Deadliest Boom Box. Tinker love. 70 Fire suit, count the total damage of five pops, and see who makes the biggest boom.

    I dunno some of these are pure luck, and might not get done. But trying to come up with ideas for the whole shard, and if we make efforts for the non-pvpers, maybe we can get more players to siege, who we can convert to some pvp, all pvp, or just more player base period.

    Throw your ideas out there, then we can compile a list, and go from there.

    How about EM-assisted keepaway?

    If it's do-able, somebody be given a (non)faction sigil for a non-existant town that's not tied to factions. The only way to get it is to steal it from the player, or kill them.

    The one to hold it for 5 minutes, wins. Or something.

    I dunno, as long as it's controlled, it could be fun. Not sure if sigils could be tweaked that way by an EM though, or if they could create something with similar rules.

    Or for teamwork, create an arena in green acres with a temporary moongate leading there. Have a sigil monolith in the center, a stone with a corruption timer of 2 minutes, and a 'base' at each end.

    No mounts allowed inside, and give the whole area the effect of the weald's desert, so ninja forms have no advantage.

    The first team to corrupt it and return it to the center 3 times, wins. This would be a lot of work to set up, and may not be do-able without actual reprogramming, but I think it would be pretty awesome with a little bit of thought and effort.

    Here is an idea for Siege Perilous...

    The Wicked Mad Bomber...
    a dark cloaked figure leaves a series of Red trapped boxes which can not
    be picked up! WMB does this with much fanfare.

    A box must be openned within a given time limit... these boxes will be
    placed at a random bank in Britannia in the Felucca setting at random times
    through out the appointed day of the event. I like the 13th of the month.
    Always the news may be told when the events occur.

    If opened then a locked down book remains inside with a set of clues for the
    next event. Also, a spawn of monsters are summoned which each will drop
    another clue-like item<s> for the looters. The source of these items shall be
    from players on Siege Perilous.

    Once all the monsters are slain... WMB with curses, leaves the players with a
    lasting thought.

    This could be done once a month, each sequel will have a different theme.

    Requirements:
    One presiding EM, one player actor playing the script of the game,
    spawning of selected monsters, props, clue books and any items that are placed
    inside the corpses of the monsters made by players of Siege Perilous.
    Scripts provided to presiding EM for approval in a timely matter.

    Cautions: Not everyone can do this for ever... so the series will be finite or
    possibly continued by several different implementors. Intrusions by PvP is
    par for the course. Certain event tactics will be used to assure that events
    can be done with minimal trouble.
