    Hail All!

    It's been A LONG time since I've heard from the folk from the Kingdom of Dawn, and I'm glad that all is well and good! Here's to good times, and remember folks, "Friends don't let other friends ride their ethereal mounts whilst under the influence!"

    Also runes to the Dawn Tower are locked down at Sara of Baja's House north of Luna, Luna Outskirt Mall which is west of Sara's House and at the Kingdom of Dawn Ocllo Embassy which is directly east of the bank in Ocllo just outside the protection of the town guards.

    Heh, I used to own a house behind the north gate keep and there was plenty of bloodshed on that side of the mountains. This is good to see the community doing something over there again.
     
  8. Yes there is a risk that some players will find out about this Open House and try to disturb the event.

    Is there anything Dawn can do about that? - No, we are located on Felucca and anybody - Blue or Red - can come to the event. All we can do is ban them from buildings.

    Does that mean you shouldn't come? - That depends on you. We have offered tips to prevent item loss and pet death and on how to get away quickly.

    However, if you don't come, you are missing out on a chance to visit a place with alot of Baja history. We have a museum with some very rare and very old items. The Dawn Tower has a Town Crier and we used to have a Stable Master.

    A guild has offered their services to help protect the tours from the spawn in the area during the tours. Some of the members they bring might be red, but they will NOT attack you. So if you see players that are red in the arriving gate area, please DO NOT panic.

  9. I think it was pretty ****ty of MIKE to come onto our shard and try to ruin the night like they did. Thanks to the $C$ and DEA that were able to set aside our differences and fight along side each other to quickly quell the ruckus. MIKE, this is our shard. Go home.

    Well despite the happenings, it was a big success. The tour did eventually go on and was lovely. Wildstar did a fantastic job. And thank you ever so much for all the guilds that came to our rescue. It was an awesome scene for sure!!

    Pics and story to follow in the morning.

  11. I would like to loudly and publicly thank LSN, DEA, K*R &amp; $C$ for their help with tonight's event. The trouble delayed the tour but that was all.

    I have so much respect for the guilds that showed up to make sure the tour went forward. I was excited to come through the gate and recognize players who were in these guilds as I've missed seeing their hides around the game. Being the chatty person I am, I was constantly being left behind in the tour but I had a blast. I thoroughly enjoyed the town and plan to visit again; even if I don't have those guardian angels with me. Thank you to everyone for making it such a fun night. It warmed this Mama's heart. *HUGE HUGS*

    My char was attacked by a super dragon. Apprehension. Haven't looked at the photos yet.

    The point was is that without those pets, the attackers were nothin'. But MT went there fully aware that this would happen. :p
     
  16. Ah...I see.

    You won't see pictures of "that dragon" here. Groups like the one that caused the trouble want attention so no pictures will be published of the distrubance.
