    On Sunday at 7pm EST we will be holding an "Introduction to Siege" event for non-Siege players at the Skara Community Centre.

    The plan is to begin with a talk covering the Siege rule differences, myths about Siege and how to make your way on Siege. Following this will be a QA session. Finally, we will go out and visit a few places on the shard including the infamous Luna and the NEW guildhouse where they can meet Shalimar. We will also stop at some of the player towns.

    All Siege players are cordially invited to attend the event. We would especially like to have at least one experienced PvPer who can offer advice on templates and Siege PvP. Although I will give the introductory speech myself as needed, should anyone wish to speak about specific aspects of Siege (thieves, PvP, Factions, crafting & vendors, etc.) then please contact me to discuss this. If you wish the entourage to stop by at your town then please let me know and be sure to have a representative on-hand for the event.

    I also propose that we do the cross-shard Champ crawl on Saturday 14th March starting at 9pm EST. The idea will be that all gold and scrolls will be given to any NEW members present or any other shard newcomers who take part. I will also be holding a Werewolf event on Friday 13th as anyone can take part in this and it will be another opportunity for newcomers to meet people. If anyone is going to hold an event for NEW players (as has been discussed recently), then the week beginning 14th March may be a good time to hold it. If you are planning something then please let me know so that I can inform people at the Intro event.

    I am not sure how many folk, if any, we will get to come along for this, but please help by keeping the Uhall thread bumped so it stays on the front page until the event time. However, please DO NOT respond to any anti-Siege comments there - let's just ignore it and let people draw their own conclusions by coming to the event.

    If you have any other comments or suggestions for this event, please let me know.

    And finally, please be aware that there are an awful lot of people in the NEW guild at present, so now is a good time for guild recruiters to start meeting them and making yourselves known.

    Good stuff. Keep em coming. These types of events may only get 1 or 2 more active Siege players, but at the same time...that is 1 or 2 more people to add to our community. No matter their game play.

    That's where RoT steps in and helps weed out the kiddies...la

    It may only add a few players, but that will be a few more than we had. It is also advertising. Good exposure.

    I hope this goes well tonight. Most likely I will be unable to attend being that Baby Pickaxe is still awake at that time and hubby is at work. I'll try, though. Sometimes, she likes to watch me play.

    Probably! She is quite sassy already and she is only 3 and a half! She does take after her daddy, so she just might be good at PVP, unlike her momma who can't PVP her way out of a paper bag with scissors!
