    Rares Fest Hokuto 2013
    This festival we make some adjustments for held in January 2013
    We do not have a festival this fall
    It is to show that it does not mean Film Festival twice a year we would have weakened

    -The purpose of this festival-
    Assuming that there is holiday Item
    in real time for holiday Items Collect.

    Purchasing power of people in Asia in recent auctions have shown Huge power
    but many of them have never seen Rares Fest ..
    Necessity Market development in Asia.
    We have a Ingenious cultural Asian Player event.
    Aims to promote cultural exchange at the same time holding them

    Christmas, Valentine, Easter Etc.
    It is fun to see the newest items on Vendor
    What is the best time to trade for holiday item?


    In addition, the cost of round trip token X Shard
    45m one way like recently
    Become anxious When I think about it
    90m cost burden would be very large for Middle class collector Including me
    I would like to hear some Opinion


    also I need the cooperation of Experienced people
    Need convincing I thinking of some names

    These are my draft
    Staff or Advisor

    Thanks for the post Blend, just name the time and the place and if I can do what needs to be done than it shall be done. I can't speak for everyone on that list, but that is some of the best and brightest. The last festival you helped put together was so amazing that I doubt you'll find any shortage of volunteers.

    I think that no matter what shard you choose, the 90m round trip will be an issue for some. As long as Hokuto has a strong residential population, I say plan it and they will come. Just post a final plan well enough in advance so people can start budgeting for their travel.

    yay!! Finally a new proposal. I've missed out on a lot of asian event rares this past year so it would be great to see them at the silent auction *cross fingers*. Many of us now have shard transfer shields so i think we can help each other out a lot. Also, it seems like gold is accepted by almost anyone on Atlantic so that would also take care some issues. Now it would be ideal if Mesanna publishes the gold removal patch and link it to our accounts then that would be awesome.

    I think fest in Asia shard is good for collectors growth
    I do not have The exact value for the resident population that.
    my opinion hokuto is 3rd-4th in Asia Shards

    Events that took place in October
    Reference
    EM Event - Japanese Shards' Void Pool Competition! | Stratics: A Career Path in Gaming

    They defend the pool for more than 6 hours
    It is amazing potential Power:)

    Perhaps the Token Gods can have some pity on us during the 1-2 weeks leading up to the Rare Fest in Hokuto and give us a price break :)

    Blend, your last festival was amazing. I don't know how you could top it! I certainly doubt you need my help but I got your back if you need us from Toad Town.
    Its been such a boring fall without a festival to look forward to. I am stashing away gold now for the transfer tokens as I write this.

    Thank you all for taking on this endeavor, We really appreciate it. (bows)

    Hey Arya, yes we are both doing well, new darkfall game comes out in 2 weeks so that will be our new MMO, classic shard meaning pre-aos or pre-renaissance either would be cool, been a lot of controversy over it for years and if they made one many old uo players would return to come play, you know before insurance, before bonded pets and no limit on pet followers, when vanquishing weapons were dominant, good times !

    Yup any questions feel free to ask me too, i helped create the idea of a silent auction which seems to be a fan favorite at rares festivals
