The Tamer-Palooza hosted by Lord Yalp and Lady Epona of CTDM was a huge success. And from the many reports I’ve seen it is defiantly something the tamers of Baja would like to see again.<o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p>Being a member of UTB, I met with other guild mates in Delucia to take them too the start of the event.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><input type=image src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_UTB.JPG" name=tam></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>Registration took place at the Grand Arena, southwest of the main city of<st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on"> Luna</st1:place> </st1:city>. Many tamers lined up for the privilege to help our great Zoo that is in need of much love and attention. Twenty-five brave tamers answered the call to help build up the Zoo.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><input type=image src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_Registration.JPG" name=tam></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center> <o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>Then the rules of the event were announced and questions answered. Lord Yalp explained that the prizes had increased from the original amounts thanks to donations for Lord Dar of ToT and Lady Sara of TAO.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>A treat to all was every 100<sup>th</sup> animal donated the person turning in that creature was awarded with 100,000 gold.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>We were all told to get our first tame ready and met Lord Yalp and Lady Epona at the Moonglow Royal Zoo. Explained the rules one more time, then the chaos began.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><input type=image src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_Pretames.JPG" name=tam></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center> <o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>It was a very bumpy start to the event but as the wise ones say live and learn. People waited patiently for the first round to move through. Soon everyone began lining up with their tames to help poor overwhelmed Lord Yalp record everyone’s creature. Lady Epona conducted the line and made announcements to those in the back of the line.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><input type=image src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_Turninline.JPG" name=tam></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>It wasn’t long before the 100<sup>th</sup> creature was donated to the Zoo. Lil Debi of TAO was the lucky person to turn number 100. Soon Jalad the Hunter had number 200 with his ki-rins. Lord Cornal Cernach of UTB made the 300<sup>th</sup> donation. Another UTB member soon donated number 400, Princess Cy nDie. And finally Lord Dar of ToT turned in the 500<sup>th</sup> creature. Congratulations to all of you for wining 100,000 gold.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><input type=image src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_first100thtame.JPG" name=tam></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>It was a long haul for Lord Yalp and Lady Epona but soon we reached the time limit for turn ins. Those that showed up after the cutoff still generously donated their creatures to the Zoo. Yalp announced to us the amount that had been donated during the two hour event. A whooping 206975 points. Tamers of Baja should be very proud of their accomplishments. </p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center><input type="image" src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_Beginpoints.JPG" name=tam><input type=image src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/baja/Ori_Endpoints.JPG" name= tam><o:p> </o:p> </p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>1st- Milrado of SI (3.75 mil gold, special commemorative cake, and white para chest)

  4. WOOO HOOO! Well worth the wait.. great screenies! Lookie all those drakes and dragons! Love the parade shots! That was quite a start for those Luna bank sitters! Thanks for all the hard work Oriana!

    By the By.. I hear Princess Cy still hasn't gotten her 100k check? Can you contact her regarding this? Give Lord Jarlaxle a PM and he can meet up with her!

    We are in the early stages of planning the NEXT TAMER-PALOOZA! Looks like maybe...... early April! So all you new young tamers get those skills up and you too can form a line with multiple drakes!
