    As requested by the EM of Baja, Seppo, I'm making this the offical...Get in touch with EM Seppo.

    Please leave all your questions and comments here so that Seppo has a nice convenient spot to check to see what we have to say. He can't respond so please keep that in mind. And please keep the trolling out. Input is fine even if negative, but please be constructive about it.

    UO Baja Moderator,
    Oriana

    Awesome.

    First off, I'd like to inquire whether there will be times when he will be ingame, and at the EM Hall. I'd like the chance to properly greet him, and pick his brain about what plans he has for Baja, and the extent of his "powers", if you can call them that.

    I think it'd be nice if we knew when he was ingame, at the EM Hall, so people can visit and chat with him, rather than just leave a message. I'm sure there are other Baja players who would love the opportunity to welcome him to the shard and chat with him, if he has the time.

    Also! Where can I pick up a nifty EM robe for myself? =]

    He also left a reminder that he will be available unannounced at times so keep your eyes open in both Trammel and Felluca. Both locations in Britain the northern most counselor's hall.

    Thanks Oriana!

    I had a great time, and learned more about what it is that EMs do. I feel so much more educated now!

    Seppo where you been!?! Wouldn't hurt to stop by once in a while... If nothing else just call or text or something... If you ever want to come over for dinner or maybe attend some duels or watch tv or something you know where to find us.

    Seppo, Pallando, in the hall. Who is the studliest Britannian of them all? *Checks himself out in the mirror*

    Humor aside, Seppo asked me for a picture of Archimedes the Old. I actually took this screenshot in November 2007, at the height of the Magincian Invasion. Archimedes valiently stood against the invading demons, while Julius Dryden cowardly fled to the Covian Graveyard. In other words, Archimedes was slain while Julius Dryden was teleported by a void demon. I've heard through the grapevine; allegedly players were provoking the berserker demons against Archimedes the Old in an attempt to slay him and destroy the last monument to EM Vincent. I've not been able to confirm if this was true or not.

    I am fairly certain that his sash was the Obi D'Ense (which currently can be found displayed at the Lycaeum), and his boots were the Royal Guard Boots. I don't know if his robe, stave, or hat posessed any special names or properties.

    I should have some pictures of myself (Archimedes the Old & Judge Dryden) around somewhere, I was quite the shutterbug while playing EM Vincent.

    Yup, found my old host folder.


    Here is a fullsize of me with Lady Foster!

    Ah, I loved puns. Yes, it was the Obi D'Ense. And EM Vincent wore hot pink fuzzy bunny slippers which were made of love. The Robe and Hat didn't have any other names, but the Crook did... another pun which I can't quite remember at the moment.

    Greetings, CrazyJoe! *Smiles*

    After having the chance to meet with our new event moderators, I brought up the destruction of the ongoing battle between the two commanders, Archimedes and Julius. Apparently, the developers were going to lock down everything so that the historical locations wouldn't be affected; but greedy rubble-seeking players still found a way to break ours on Baja.

    I cannot speak for Seppo or Pallando; but I think Seppo intends to do something about it in the future.

    The Crook was named, "Eymknota" or something.

    As in, "I'm Not A Crook"

    Hail Lords Seppo & Pallando,

    Word has reached me that thou art seeking folks to speak for, or represent, Britannian cities and towns in upcoming informational exchanges.

    Is this so? If so, I would be honored to gather and poll citizens of Trinsic. I was born in the forests of Trinsic, raised by the Paladins of Trinsic, fought back the forces that invaded Trinsic, and currently sponsor the staff at the Trinsic Royal Guardpost (located upon Barrier Isle).

    I await your pleasure and your response.

    Lord Elladan Faeryn, Legendary Paladin of Trinsic

    Ivan, Seppo is kind of hard to catch. But he and Pallando are usually around before and after events. Just keep peeking in at their offices in Britain. I'm sure eventually you will bump into him.

    Definitely meet up with him if you can, Ivan. EM Seppo's an interesting guy, and has plenty of great ideas cooking up. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with him myself.

    I almost forgot!

    Here are the BNN Articles related to the construction of the Skara Brae Faire Ground. I must've gotten these articles confused with another one that mentions a Lord Nicholas.

    Wealthy Land Owner Passes On - August 13th, 2000

    Skara Brae Craftsmen Unusually Busy - August 14th, 2000

    Skara Brae Faire Grounds Constructed - August 15th, 2000

    Unfortunately, the ends of the articles seem to be cut off. I will see if I can find them in an alternate location. I haven't checked the archives on UOHerald yet.

    Now, here are the articles related to the Festival of Spirits.

    An Invitation to the Festival of Spirits - August 20th, 2000

    Feast of Spirits Reminder - August 27th, 2000

    Feast of Spirits A Huge Success! - September 11th, 2000

    Note: The Golden Globe Players were the theatrical band of actors and playwrights associated with the Golden Brew Tavern and the Golden Knights. Their name came from "The Golden Globe", a player-theater established right next to the Golden Brew in the original village of Golden. They were alternately known as "The Golden Brew Players" and "The Golden Knight Players."

    Here is information pertaining to the Baja Chef's Faire. I believe this was the event that Magdalena and Xel the Wanderer was refering to. It took place at the Darkmor Tavern, which might have had to do with Sleath Von Darkmor (a resident of Heaven's Forge all those years ago).

    Freeborn Press: The Baja Chef's Faire - April 26th, 2001.



    Ah, another historical note. This was posted by Nobody of Avalon, who went on to be Seer Sannio, and later Community Manager Sannio.

    Ah, I found this to be very interesting!

    This is the invitation to the very first BSR Tournement, posted on April 4th, 2001. At the time, the tournement was actually known as the Archer's Faire.

    EM Seppo , could you please please darken you emotes and speech colors. I miss a lot of the event talk because I have not so good eyes and can't see the lighter colors very well . I can't see the tan at all or most of the lighter yellows. I know I am only one person so I'll understand if you don't, won't or can't, but it never hurts to ask.
    Thank you.

    Millie do you by chance use UO Assist. If not, not much you can do. If so, on the display tab on assist, the lower right corner, there is a drop down for speech, you can choose the color everyone's text displays for you, including the emotes. I'm partial to red myself, but you can chose which ever is best for you. Hope this helps.

    Hello Seppo & Pallando,

    Following this past weekend's "Fire & Ice" event, many UO Stratics/Baja posters and readers have expressed THANKS for your efforts to bring "live content" events to Baja. However, many have also expressed displeasure, disgust, and shame at the appalling speech & misbehavior of several of our citizens.

    Is there anything either of you may suggest to those of us who seek civil & mature behavior at future events??? Is there any way we may aid you in improving future folks behavior? Is there anyone at EA we may write, call, email, etc., in attempts to aid you in having improved environments to work in going forward? Or is it totally out of our hands to "police & improve" upon inappropriate speech and actions?

    I think most are eager to help if possible. If improvement simply isn't possible, at least knowing even that may reduce folks angst.

    If you are unable to respond here, PM a reply if permited or find any other way to express your views (including in game).

    Elladan of Baja

    Elladan,
    The EMs can and do read the forums, however they MAY NOT post on them. They have a website where they can and do post, and where players may leave feedback, etc.

    Thanks Sara,

    I doubted the EM's could post openly, hoped they could use private messages, and know with certainty they are able to speak to us in game.

    I merely added my comments here because the Thread asks for them and indicates the EM's are allowed to read here.

    I will also visit the web site you link to.

    The event moderators used to have the power to "telestorm" troublemakers. I wonder if they will get that power back eventually...?
