    Greetings people of Atlantic!

    I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself for those who were
    not able to attend tonight’s Meet and Greet in Britain.

    My name is EM Bennu, and I will be partnering with EM Nestor to be one
    half of the Event Moderator team for the Atlantic shard.

    Like many of you, I have been playing Ultima Online off and on since
    1997. I am new to the Event team and it looks to be a great amount of
    fun for all involved. I look forward to entertaining you with more than a few of
    my tales and events.

    My forte really is tossing quite a bit of Role Playing content in
    with my fiction, everything one of my characters says has a reason for
    saying it, and all of my items and creatures will have a reason for
    existing. What that means is that everything is part of the story, even
    something small and subtle. Some of you may find my subtlety to be a bit maddening,
    but that mystery is part of the hunt and is part of the fun! It is the story that I find
    interesting and rewarding. However, above that the reaction and attentiveness of the
    audience really is what makes the job of an EM so much fun. When you write a book,
    you spend a year writing it, another year editing and getting it published and it takes
    another year beyond that to really start getting feedback. As an EM the feedback is
    instantaneous, from both the positive and negative!

    I ask for your patience and your interest, look upon my events as an interactive story.

    The journey is half the reward!

    I am very receptive to feedback, and would be happy to entertain event
    ideas as well as constructive criticism of my events and actions in
    game. You can easily contact me at: [email protected] If something
    works, let me know, if something doesn’t work, let me know!

    On the other side of the screen, I am a full time writer. I am also a family man with
    two wonderful children and a wife.

    I look forward to my time here on Atlantic, and I hope that you grow
    to like me and my own special flavor that I hope to add to the world
    of Atlantic.

    I wish you all the best, let’s have some fun!

    Hey, great to meet you. I like how you say you incorporate alot of rp into your character and events. One suggestion -more rp in events, less "event items" so the mobs of greedy people that cause massive lag that make these events impossible to play wont be there just for an item they can sell for 50 million gold. I love events, and would love them even more if more rp will be incorporated in them, but alot of players just go to get an item to sell. If there have to be items, please have lots and lots of them, so they wont be worth any gold.

    Great to see another devoted EM on Atlantic, good luck with it, im excited to see what you come up with.

    Hello there and welcome to our shard!

    I'm happy to see a fellow roleplayer join the EM squad. I'm looking forward to seeing what types of events you'll bring to our shard. You'll see my name at most of those events, just ask Nestor :)

    I'm guessing the "A summons to Britain" story was yours and I must say, I found it delightful. I look forward to your events and stories.
