    Rare Festival

    Getting a little organized here; pre-sign up for vendors. Please post here if you want a vendor! Also, if you hope to be there to buy.

    You may want to keep an eye out on the mini events - bringing a developed character maybe more fun than bring just a mule.

    One or two US volunteers would be helpful in staging events on off peak European time zones.

    Dates; Sat. Oct 25th, Sun Oct 26th and Mon Oct 27th (the festival may extend beyond Oct 27th if enough events can be planed)

    Location; Feath's umbra road house. see thumbnail map.
    mini events;
    24th - tram castle idoc! runes will be given out! 10pm gmt apx fall time.
    25th - Scavenger Hunt - sat at 8pm GMT; win rubble bookcase; contact, feath
    25th - Fire Quest - Saturday at 19:30 GMT; contact, pliny the elder
    26th - dungeon quest; sun 18;00 GMT; contact, THP.
    26th - Fire Quest - Sunday at 21:30 GMT; contact, pliny the elder
    26th - smith quest; 22;00 CET; contact scandinavian - TIME/DATE CHANGE
    27th - dungeon quest; monday 20.00; contact THP. ADDED EVENT
    27th - lotto; win a rare; price 500k per ticket, prize ruined painting. Drawing at 6pm, winner need not be there to win. contact, feath.

    More will be added as they are finalized.

    Times of events TBD. More than 1 may be done to cater to different time zones.

    Vendors will be placed starting 2 days before the event, and continue through event. Vendors are free.

    I added those who told me if they are selling or buying - if all you say is a variant of 'yay!' I dont know what you want, if anything.
    If you're in the wrong spot, or no spot, tell me and i'll fix it.

    kray2s Guest

    Can i just clarify something please- i know this is a rares festival but would we be limited to just having rares on the vendors? or can we add extra items like tokuno stuff, etherals etc etc?

    Just not sure i got enough rares that i want to get rid of so may need to pad the vendor out if i have one:p
     
  14. feath

    feath Guest

    I don't see where padding would hurt. There are few of us that will have a ton of 'rares', and a few high end items would help draw in europa players, I'd think. So, as far as I'm concerned, I dont see a problem. anyone else?

    There has been no real rule regarding this in the past. People generally seem to stick to the spirit of the event for the most part and it has not caused any issues. I don't think there is anything wrong with having *other* items for sale too.

    The original intention of the rare festival was to allow for collectors to gather in one place and display their rares as much as sell them. It has not quite lived up to it but its still fun.

    I will be attending and would be interested in a vendor. Not sure if asked, but will be selling some old double exe stuff (bracketed items), double blessed items, and potentially some serverbirths.

    I will also be buying if I find stuff I like there. See you all there!

    that sounds fun THP!

    i don't think i have much to sell this time around... but then again i always think that and i manage to throw together enough stuff at the last minute. yay for the rares festival!

    what i'm hoping to buy are neon runebooks in the rarer colors like bright orange & bright yellow. another magical lockbox would be nice, too. would be great to see some of the new vet rewards for sale too... those are pretty hard to come by methinks.

    sorry I've been so quiet! My ISP throttled me... i could log in anytime - so long as i wanted to watch it cycle and never load lol.
    I'm back and good for another 20 days!

    I'm also having trouble with my icq - sometimes it shows me red/logged out, when i'm actually there. and i suspect, visa versa! I'm also getting errors - someone sends a mesg, and all i get is a 'do you want to report this error' mesg. I have no clue who mesg'd me! It never tells me! So, if you send something, and i never respond, its cause I didn't see your mesg!

    thanks guys!

    We're all ready for the festival - those with vendors, get in contact with me 1-2 days before and we'll set up your vendors!

    oh, yeah, and I updated the original post, it now shows when the events are scheduled. I'll post a picture of where the luna house is, in a moment.

    thanks for setting this up Feath! it seems like it's always the times when you most need your internet and ICQ to be working that they decide to crash...

    I'm comming to the rares festival, as a buyer. Items i'd be very interested in: Obsidian Statues facing east- Studious Scribe*, The Keeper of Truth, and The Patron of Courage. Obsidian Statues facing south, The Keeper of Truth, The Patron of Courage, and "Insert Char Name Here" . Also, Need 6 old tagged chairs, chair of exxy quality, of exxy quality, [exxy], etc.....as long as all 6 are same name n style, I'll surely be interested. Thanks.

    * Wraith One may be selling me a Studious Scribe east statue finishing my Obsidian common set of 102 statues. I should know before festival and I will edit this post as needed.

    i would suggest that everyone start getting there people moved now, according to other posts the next publish is on test center, if it comes in before next tuesday it might make the festival very hard to attend for some. if not impossible

    if anyone wants to get their vendor early, let me know. The cosmos are using my connection as a football, and keep kicking me out of bounds. I've been throttled, disconnected and having power outages. Catch me when you can, cause I don't know when you'll see me again!

    Saturday 18.00 uk time Mini-Dungeon Event -Start at back of Event shop on street.....Running time guess 30-40 minutes

    You will be greeted by a very confused Rat with a tale to tell.......

    Okies this is a pure ''Fun'' event . If u are a little bored then come join the fun in a little Dungeon Crawl. To get a good balance for experianced and newer players we are not going too deep, thats to say the spawn aint bad- well till the end muahhaaaa.

    All i ask is u try to stick together as a unit- Theres no first or last, just dont get lost!!

    So come and enjoy there will be some event made craftables and little amount of silver coin spawning on the floor for u to collect if u so desire.

    There will be one end prize with a check for 1m and special set of the event made craftables.

    Feath I'll be moving my stuff over late tonight (late for me - midnight EST) so if you're available then we can quickly get me a vendor, otherwise anytime tomorrow is fine, if you're available. sucks your connection is being so flaky! Where is your vendor house BTW - have you posted a map yet?

    I don't suppose there is still time to customize the house design??? This one leaves like 0 space and is not at all conducive for hosting a festival. :/

    A more open front would encourage socializing and give it the right atmosphere. I would strongly encourage to try and get in touch with the people who have vendors to take them down and redesign the house to give it an open front - nothing fancy. If you ask few people with vendors to take them down today, you can still redesign it tomorrow? Or if you or someone else from Europa has another house somewhere else we can host it there too as long as it has space around it? It is so important to have space.

    Or conversely, if you know the guy next door to get him to chop his floors for the weekend..

    the new venue is smaller than the luna house, so there are less vendor spots open. there are a few deeds still unclaimed, but once they're gone - their gone!
    Get your vendor now before they're all gone!

    Feath ~ I just want to say THANK YOU for organizing this and providing the great vendor house and making sure things are running smoothly! even though the Rares Fest didn't officially start until today I am realizing just how much work and time you've been putting in. You were there to get my vendor set up right when I arrived on Europa and that made my life a lot easier. Just wanted to say it's hugely appreciated, especially knowing that you're having internet connection issues, and you're in a much different time zone than us US players ~ you're doing an amazing job!!!
