    There will be an EM Tiberies event, this Saturday, February 16, at Noon Eastern.

    This year's reenactment of the long-ago walk of the monk Brialla of the Seven Tears from Yew to Minoc has been threatened by the Mondain Cult known as We, the Forgotten.

    You will be providing security for the walk.

    Gather outside the Yew Abbey.

    (This event has nothing directly to do with Valentine's Day.)

    This event will be entitled "The Seven Tears."

    As of last night this event should be on the in-game town criers.

    Apologies for having to cancel this event, but in my experience events that begin with minor disruptions end with major ones.

    It seems I cannot start events anyplace where there isn't a barrier around me.

    The event will be rescheduled, and it'll start at the EM Hall where, while disruptions sadly remain possible, they are more difficult and thus do not potentially run the risk of setting a bad tone for the entire event.

    Tib, I dont blame you at all for cancelling, I woulda done same thing. I have not had chance to make to many events lately because work, but was able to be here and it sucks people need so much attention that they gotta use a game for it. It stems from the Mom and Dad not loving the child, they grow up and find a way to say "Hey look at me", this is a factor in why people are leaving UO by the masses.

    I understand your frustration, but also don't think we should let a few or several people cause a major disruption. Is there not a way for EM's to squelch people for like 60 secs or tele them away. Maybe a GM should tag along hidden to send ones you request to jail till event is over? It's a tough job for sure but the other option lets them feel they win. Events are too fun to let a few ruin them is all.

    I agree the distractions were annoying, but by cancelling the event you gave the griefers a victory. Their goal is to ruin others' gameplay. They won. In the future, I'd find a better way around dealing with distractions that don't punish those who are trying to participate and reward those who are trying to disrupt.

    When the event is rescheduled it will start at the EM Hall (West Britain Counselors' Guild Hall), the normal start place.

    Because of the stage there there is a greater physical distance between myself and potential griefers, which is a factor.

    It doesn't make griefing impossible by any stretch, but it makes it more difficult, and mitigates its effects to some degree.

    Again, apologies for having to cancel (though I guess technically it's merely postponed).

    I totally understand and respect your decision. It is a shame that the few bad apples ruin things. I wish you guys had the right to send guys to jail and squelch them again.

    Only one of many reasons some of us have stopped attending events. It's not as if this is the first time children have acted out at an event on Atlantic, it's part of the event as far a I can tell, it's a constant. Another is the massive gating in of friends as the main boss spawns. Thus allowing entire guilds to join in at he end, who have done nothing fir the entire event.

    Simply put, EM's need much more power and authority, and GM's need to be there to jail and or ban those who make a habit of disruption. I'm sure it's not a huge issue on other shards, but Atlantic has always been a griefer paradise!

    I brought this up to Mesanna about a month ago (Mainly giving EMs power to squelch again). She pretty much said they were never going to get those kind of powers again.

    I know the original EM program had alot of corruption, but its too bad they cant just be given the one power to help handle the crowds.

    Sad to hear about the trolling, that always sucks.

    However on a selfish note, as I couldn't make it earlier today I'm glad I might make it to the rain-check event.
