    I will sign this petition.

    Events, especially those that focus around the UO community pulling together to reach a goal, greatly enhance my UO experience.

    I am hoping that teh rebuilding of Magincia is due to start soon, that it will be on both Trammel and Felucca, and that the outcome is not guarenteed, or linked between the facets (ie, if fel side fails to complete the required actions, but trammel does, that trammel will have a working and functioning Magincia, but fel will not). I would also like to do something with the blue crystals i have saved since the Holloween event......

    If they are still needing time to iron out the bugs for the next event, they can always go back to the old standby of activating the TOT event for a month. Maybe throw in new dyes, a new artifact or two, and towards the end throw in a wrinkle that somehow will tie into the upcoming story arc. That will buy them a month or two and the best part they don't have to reprogram the town criers unless they finally fixed them.

    Assuming the event doesn't suck of course, I totally agree.

    Event Moderators are awesome, UO needs that kind of content.

    However, I personally feel UO also needs more persistent, more epic content to go along with that kind of content EMs can provide so well. (And, on Great Lakes at least --I can's peak for other shards as I only play one at a time--, DO provide so well.)

    For example, the Event Moderators can't, say, rebuild Magincia.

    They are kind of doing this, with the new Stygian Abyss Artifacts.

    I think I'd support ToT being turned on for a short while too, if only so that the Abyss servers don't get too clogged!

    Also some of those minors are good for relic fragments. Sadly some aren't good for much else now that you won't be able to Imbue Artifacts anymore.

    10:1 that of they turned on ToT, at the same time the criers would stop announcing it :)

    How hard would it be to come up with 4-6 "events" that could be rotated through, with minor tweaks. Every couple of months, one could be turned on for 30-45 days. Some could even be made easily modifiable so that, say, instead of TOK, it goes to OAKS, or a pirate/brigand/you name it invasion of a coast, etc. You could even randomize the "landing point" of the invasion so that people would haave to move up and down the coast, or set coast watchers to catch the invasion.

    Keep us on our toes.

    Thank you.

    Out of curiosity, is it a seasonal/Holiday event for Easter or Passover or April Fool's Day or something along those lines?

    Or is it a storyline-driven event like what (I think?) we have in mind in this thread?

    "Tasty fiction" might imply the latter, but someone also hinted there's an April Fool's event coming too.

    They aren't incompatible, of course....I am just trying to determine who is talking about what.

    Thanks for responding, either way.
