Chesapeake players expect High attendance during the Wednesday and Friday events) From EM Drosselmeyer Antagonist/Evil Side As mentioned before, there will be an antagonist/evil side to support if you don't want to be part of the Guard. However I want to hear your ideas of what we could make this, and how to do it. We have a few ideas already, but we'd love to hear yours as well. So please do let us know if you have suggestions or ideas for an antagonist side. The requirements are that it'd obviously have to be regulated and that it not use anything already used. I.E. it cannot be a reformation of the Chaos guard of Blackthorne or something else. They don't necessarily need to be axe murdering kidnapping axe murdering baby stealing genocidal monsters but, you know, they gotta be bad guys. So if you have a good idea, please send it in as thorough detail as you can. [email protected] [email protected] Merit/Demerit System Anything earned as part of the guard will not say 'Royal Guard Commander's Cloak' It would say 'Commander Character name Royal Guard Cloak' Any rewards from the merit/demerit system will be both standardized and personalized And continuing with that. We have methods in place so that if you try to sell your royal guard merit items Actions will be taken. Some people will sell anything from the EM program because any item will get millions. And that's fine for event items. There's not a wrong way to play UO, unless you are breaking the ToS. The merit/demerit system is SPECIFICALLY designed to give you things to wear to show your dedication to the group you are part of. And that is why it has a difference in our view of items.
