Last week I dropped into the Councilors Hall, found on the North West side of the city of Britain, and had the pleasure of meeting Catskills new Event Moderator “EM Kasaven”. He was busy working on plans to redecorate the hall but took a few minutes to answer a few quick questions for you our readers. First off he is an 11 year veteran of the game and calls Atlantic his home shard. (As most of you know an EM cannot do their duties on their home shard to help prevent favoritism.) He has a few ideas as for the types of events he hopes to host, and plans on involving all playing styles in these events. He also hopes to have events that take place on all the facets of the shard. This means that all players’ types from craftsmen in Trammel to reds in Felucca will have events to take part in, and that is good news for all. EM Kasavens new duties are to run planned events in support of ongoing Mythic storylines, and to organize and run events of his own that have been approved by Mythic. Each shard have been assigned their own EMs along with some EMs called floaters who will provide extra manpower to shards that do not have 2 full time EMs assigned to them. Meaning that if EM Kasaven is running an event that requires more than one person. Then one of the floaters will join him on our shard. As of the present time all the EMs are prohibited from posting on any of the Forums although I was informed that EM Kasaven does drop into the boards, and has read all of your greetings to him. One of the big problems before was EM events that started to late in the evening for Catskills players so most players missed out on them. EM Kasaven stated that he plans on starting the new EM events around dinner time for most players. That way they will be ending at a more reasonable hour for players on the shard. He had no time table for how often we would have EM events, but promised to do his best to keep us from getting too bored. The new EM ran events are right now projected to start in the middle of January, but if you want to meet EM Kasaven before then. You may catch him at the Councilors Hall in Britain if you drop in at the right time. You will find our new EM to be a quick witted person who is friendly, and I am sure will keep us active, thrilled and enthralled once he starts his job.
