    Well I was wondering if you were ever going to give out a body sash
    with your name on it. Many EMs do it and I like to collect them for
    sentimental reasons. Vladimere has done this a long time ago.

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    That's right Phoenix, I am no tailor And you're right Demon Slayer, that
    makes Dudley very very special. And Dudley likes to be special. I'm not
    saying it will never happen But I will tell you this much It will not be given
    away lightly. As a matter of fact

    *Dudley pulled a Purple Sash out. The end of its
    inscription was written 1 out of 1*


    One day maybe But until then, It belongs to Dudley.

    This may already be known but the teleporters in some towns
    aren't working correctly. PaxLair City for instance is 1 way.

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    Aye yes. The Royal Engineer's Office is still
    tweaking the connections.

    Strahd [:+:]
    Secondly I suggest maybe some street signs in Malas that
    direct to the teleporter area? So that maybe new people
    could find them easier. People who don't know
    about the teleporters.

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    Ooo That's not a bad idea at all. I will pass it along
    The teleporter will be in the same spot on all shards. So
    that will make it easier.

    Strahd [:+:]
    And finally. There are player towns that have from what I saw only
    private buildings... not much of a player town in my opinion. If there
    are not buildings that are open to all. Just my opinion thank you.

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    Some buildings should be public in towns. It's always been the long
    standing policy that you be allowed to enter at least one even in Fel.
    I would ask that all townships adhered to this. I would hate to alert
    her majesty's Ambassador. We all know how she can get... Was
    there anything else Strahd?

    Phoenix [DWxC]
    It was mentioned they would only be one way if located in fel
    to prevent leaving. That was said at one of the first meetings
    because of the Felucca ruleset.

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    I will check with Mesanna to see how it is going to work.
    With Fel, and get back to you.

    Tatania Karthina [PxR]
    I just wish to announce that auditions for Gone to Win will be at
    8:30pm ET April 14th. Everyone is welcome to help that's all.

    I was wondering about any pvp events that you might have
    coming up, I saw a 3v3 on Catskills. Was curious about any
    pvp type events we maybe able to have

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    The next PvP event I will host will be something on the
    seas. Once I get a confirmation the pet bug is fixed.
    That's the next PvP event due to popular demand. I soft
    tested the PvP area events. Which basically was gearing
    up to be a tournament. There were issues though. I would
    very much like to do a joust And tie that in, so I may work
    that into a future fair games.

    Noblet
    No Bunny?

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    The bunny is next weekend.

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    (Directed to Demon Slayer)
    I saw you posted about scheduling events on Holidays.
    I generally don't because I have to actually celebrate
    said holiday. Ergo this event is next weekend.

    Demon Slayer [VIPs]
    Yup I appreciate that. Annoyed at the responses by
    many people in that thread.

    Vladimir [TLK]
    Any chance we can get our pictures taken with the easter bunny?

    EM Dudley Lightfinger
    If you can catch him, sure! I will warn you, he is very
    fast. As anyone will tell you from last year. He was
    quick to jump into his hole!

    During last nights HOC a question was asked and EM Dudley gave an answer. I am normally quiet these days on the forums with giving my opinion but please note I am writing this as Gareth not as a Imperium Founder, Stratics moderator or stratics reporter. Just from the person behind Gareth

    So I thought about this for awhile and it really doesn't affect any of the towns I belong to directly at this time but this long standing policy was not written in the "Township Recognition Requirement." So it makes me wonder what else is not written directly in the requirements that is unknown or if more will be added to it.

    If this has been the regulation for Townships it would be nice to have that written in somewhere and any other regulations their are. Also one concern I had awhile back was that the Township summit table would be used to regulate what a town is/not what a town do/cant etc. I don't feel the body of representatives are doing this but its always still a worry in the back of my mind.

    (From experience I know that some would just love to regulate towns and roleplay.)
    ~And no thats not a slam to anyone. Thats from about twelve years of gameplay~
