    I asked EM Drosselmeyer if he thought it was a good idea to start a post about some ideas for upcomming events here as we have seen a little increase in population these past couple of months.Some newer folks were not here for the meet and greet and had no option for some input.

    He said any input is more then welcome for ideas for upcomming events or past ones,so i figured lets start one! He is willing to be here to help us out so lets give him our ideas.:D

    Old school pvp tournament w/ a sweet prize for the winner! Considering the disadvantage someone would be at w/o faction stuff I was thinking make it based purely on skill & gameplay;

    - GM Leather/Armor (no mods)
    - Reagents (Arcane Clothing?)
    - GM Weapons
    - No Pets/Mounts
    - Potions, Petals, Apples, etc.

    Not sure what kind of interest this would have. 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or a free for all...I'm leaning towards 1v1, or maybe stagger times for each event. Only disadvantage would be someone running a -mage wep for defense.

    A lonely miner is out gathering his ore when the wind stops blowing and everything becomes deathly quite. From behind a tree appears a mongbats. Eyes glowing red and a strange glow about it. From another tree appears another mongbat, and another, and yet another! The miner starts to become frazzled and nervous. Pretty soon there are hundreds of mongbats surrounding the poor gatherer. Then the unthinkable happens! They attack! Not with the strength of a normal mongbat or even a greater mongbat! Something much stronger is at work! The miner last breath is taken at a overwhelming pace as the mongbats hit with such force it takes him out cold in one swift hit. News starts to drift around that the mongbats seem to have started a revolt or something! The towns people gather in New Magincia to discuss the matter. All of a sudden in a flash of thunder and lightning the Mongbat Lord appears and begins to speak of the unjust killing and slaying of his kind. He explains that he has made a deal with arcane forces to strenghten his kind! They plan to retake britannia and claim the lands as thier own.
    The lands must be protected and the arcane powers driving these mongbats "batty" must be stopped!

    Personally, I like it, but i'd say MAYBE potions (only if the character has minimum 50 REAL alch skill) but definitely not petals or apples, only items that require a skill to use (obviously if you run a healer you need bandages, a mage you need regs, etc..). Otherwise against a build like a nox mage or necromage you could literally just chug items to negate all their attacks. (Apples effectively replace having 120 resist in a contest like this, petals give you the same poison resist you'd have to spend at least 110 points on in ninja or necro)

    While I can see this would be fun for PvPers, and more power to them, isn't this more of a Fight Night, then and EM event?

    Wouldn't it better if it was moderated by an EM? I think it would be fun for all of us who actually used to play the game this way. I think an EM attending would bring more people to the table. Not asking for EM items to be givin out but just for for him to put his spin on it or just to be there."Dusts off old double axe, casts explode and re-arms":spider:

    Your right on having an EM show up would be cool. Yes, I could see pvpers comming back, if only for a day. Still only PvP fight night theme! But go for it, it certainly would be fun day for pvpers, and there is alot them out there. Good luck with it!

    LOL I sure wouldn't last long, considering I was once killed by Miss Tea of Iantown in a duel pit. :)

    What an EM could do though is build a temporary sparkly hidden area an EM can temp create, in some somewhere and the pks have to FIND everyone first...and some way maybe award prizes to the ones that find the mob of crafters or innocents fastest would be sorta a new twist on it all, sort of like having to go find our easter eggs and bonzai plants...but gear it to find the innocents to kill if one can find the new sparkly created spot, give some hints and see how they do on their adventure to figure out where the EM hid us all.

    Well they need more of a challenge than off the defenseless so give em something that makes em THINK use their braincells, like a treasure hunt of some sort tryin to flush out the Quail. ;) And maybe even ...have all the crafters EMPTY packs cept someone can make something the hunters could get for prizes or thieves along with em to see what goodies we have hidden on our packs in our sparkly hidden wherevers once they find their...quarry of us all.

    :D:D:pie:

    Course a reverse of that would be fun for a change too.

    Have an event where everyone that IS NOT A crafter become a weak cuss, and let the crafters go PK all the PKS for once..with a hunt and prizes too !!

    Hey even steven, ya know ! Be nice to also have some event EM driven where they make the powerful become nerdy WEAK, and surprise the weak by temp makin em...MEAN AND POWERFUL to KILL anyone else ! *just for the event mind you* :)

    how about something for crafters or for people with no skills some sort of magical curse on some important npc perhaps and the only thing that can cure them is a special plant... hide a few of them literally all over anywhere really make us work for it... perhaps its in ilsh perhaps in fel perhaps, ter mur, or tok... I dono.... but we gotta find it and bring it to a set place and turn it in before the timers on them run out... if we succeed we get a prize if not they die and it spreads... and we get to try again... if we stop the spread right away we all get awesome prizes and the more npcs that die the less interesting the prize...

    Hey, I know Sprago was joking but how about a Doom day? What if every DF dropped an artie, BUT for that day only, arties could have a 50% chance of being cursed. That way get arties back into the game to compete a bit with factions stuff. Good for PvP, PvM and Thievery alike.

    Not saying it has to be a PVP theme at all, i just liked the idea. I'd love for some PvM as it would bring alot more out to play amd if the Pk's wanna pk,fine.I think commuinty building is the important part{for now}, don't you?

    Other ideas for small events.

    1. Bagball tournament
    2. fel+t2a marathon run
    3. scavanger hunt

    Ideas for slightly larger events

    1. Britain invasion by llamas (red llamas, preferrably magic casting)
    2. Any excuse to go down into shame

    Better Ideas

    What I REALLY would like to see are the "mini-arc" stories that used to happen, where a story would play out across 3-4 events, it's been a while since someone tried to cast Armageddon and Terort Skitas + the sorcerers dungeon is a cool place that's rarely used :)

    Why not just do the easiest thing to do and have an arena pvp event like you had years ago... appoint some one and let that person design the rules, and chose the contest site.

    We can always kill those who break the rules.
    I will show up to raise any Faction players.

    Sounds ok but thats more PVP geared. I'm thinking more along the lines of shard wide interaction where everyone can join. Yes i think there needs to be some PVP action if they want it but as of now it seems PVM might draw more of a crowd.

    How about this?

    The Survivors game contest.
    All players start out as ghosts. At start go get raised any shrine.
    Players compete to eventually do the Champion spawn in Despise.
    Pking at Despise may only occur after Bacaroon drops gold.
    Players may not use bank vault items or retrieve items from anyones houses, nor from other players not starting as ghosts. Event needs sign up book.
    Tamers may only use newly tamed pets.
    All resources may be gathered for crafters to make weapons, ammo and armour for players on first come first basis. Crafters must use gathered gold to buy tools to create items. The crafters may buy from the npc's vendors in towns.
    Crafters must join in the Champion spawn once it is Challenged , crafters should use the crafting area West of Britain.
    Once the Champion spawn is started, the Starter player must declare this fact on General Chat.
    Yes, Spellcasters you must gather reagents the old fashion way.
    Yes, Spellcasters may buy reagents or spell scrolls off npc's vendors in any town.
    Players may carry any Soulstones in their backpack.
    Ethyl mounts are allowed.
    Order of Event.
    1. Arrive at Event start time as a ghost where EM records your name in the event book.
    2. EM starts the event and players go get raised and organized.
    3. Gathering of resources and Crafting phrase, this lasts about one hour, but may take longer.
    4. Champion Spawn in Despise started and announced in General Chat, EM views Spawn area at this time.
    5. Players advance to bring Bacaroon up to fight.
    6.Gold and Scrolls dropped and gathering of the gold begins... Players return to Event starting area where they are presumed to be safe...
    7. EM declares winner as one who has the most gold with tie breaker as the most number of scrolls in players backpack.
    8. EM signup book is bless and giving to the winner.
