    (These are the scheduled portions of the event, there will be more to do over the next few weeks as well.)
    They recommend that the players bring some blackrock for some unknown purpose. If you have any extra please bring it for those players who have failed to collect any, so they too can take part in the event.
    It also has been noted that, * This event is optimized for the 2D experience, please enable your sound option as well*

    I hope to see many of you there tonight, for our first major event in a very long time.

    That's what it looks like in KR. "Optimized for the 2D experience..." indeed.

    Complete text this time [Yay, Origin! Prior to the start of events there Draconi himself showed up and explained things a bit. He's learning, folks, heh.]

    Kronos: Ladies and gentlemen!
    It is with great pride that I stand before you today
    Soon, we'll be able to focus intense magical energy in a small confined space
    I postulate that every single piece of blackrock in the world will be made known unto us!
    Imagine it! Soon, we'll be able to gather all of the blackrock we want and...
    [No missing speech, apparently the machine was time sensitive]
    Boy! It's time!
    Hop to it then, boy!
    Dexter: Yes, master
    Kronos: Did you seal the resonance chamber?
    Dexter: Yes, master
    Kronos: Did you double check the figures?
    Dexter: Yes, master
    Kronos: Everyone, back away!
    Dexter: *flips switch*
    Kronos: Bet Wis Ex!
    The machine makes a terrific noise, lightning emits from it for several seconds, then stops
    Kronos: Uh...
    We'll be just a minute folks
    Well wait now! Come back tomorrow! It'll work tomorrow
    Exeunt

    Hope someone else can guess what is running through Draconi's mind after seeing this post to a question in Uhall tonight.

    <blockquote><hr>


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Judging from Draconi's posts, you won't be "left out" from the rest of the event.
    You will be missing some "special effects" that will affect those who attended today with blackrock in their backpack, but you can still take part in day two (like all the other people who didn't show up, or who showed up without any blackrock).

    Edit, retracting what I said: according to Draconi's last post, apparently whoever showed up today will see something special tomorrow, blackrock or not.




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Having held blackrock during Day One, though, was an all around good idea.


    [/ QUOTE ]

    He also had this to say..

    <blockquote><hr>


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    was it wasted? why have us bring blackrock for that??? time will tell i guess




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    No, it wasn't. Time will tell tomorrow for everyone who showed up, blackrock holding or no.

    As we mentioned multiple times, this event was the setup. But if you had missed tonight, and came tomorrow and saw what those who came today get, you'd have been even *more* upset if we'd simply downplayed the importance of today.

    I also wanted to throw a special thanks out to Philomena for handing out for free so much blackrock last night. It was very kind of her to do that, and it may make many players night tonight that they had some on them last evening.

    Yes she deserves credit for handing out the BR. I went to the event without a piece and was glad she gave me one. She is very nice for doing that.

    It appears some security has been added around the machine.

    [/ QUOTE ]Watch others get special handouts that are not available to those that don't have blackrock or ophid rations?
