    From what I remember, at 2pm meeting, we discussed a few things.

    Townships, holding an Event monthly (i think that was refering to non-Awakening arc stuff), also talk of looking at creating a Historical Counsel of sorts to look at old buildings and important landmarks.
    Also was mentioned about hosting some practice sessions for the THunt challenge. I think the reward halls was mentioned and the EM hoped to have this growing in the future. Also using the home in the guardzone near Britain for stuff relating to Townships and Historical buildings. People mentioned that they wanted to see some kind of crafting events etc. A few people offered help in showing the EM around Siege (like a tour).

    Hopefully others can add anything I missed.

    Was a very nice turnout aswell,i think some good things were brought up. I like how shes not rushing in and trying change everything all at once,starting small makes more sence. Also glad she wanted to hear about things we wanted from her. I liked the ideas on crafting events,dont get me wrong...i love the monster bashing and all but would love to see other events geared towards are crafters. I think just haveing something to do will bring us all alil closer o_O

    Sure, thats fine. I probably missed a few bits but hopefully the EM could clarify. I'm not sure if anyone took any pictures.

    I really enjoyed our first official meet and greets!

    IanJames, my list of topics were:

    Ask everyone about their interest in the thunt cross shard competitions - the interest is definitely there so we'll add some thunt practice dates soon. The only real issue is Siege cannot character copy to Test Center so we need to prepare with suits ect ahead of time.

    Discuss a Historical Society and point out it has been added to the Wedding Coordinator house next door - currently there are no townships or historical home banners which we plan to change together

    Discuss a possible tour of homes and places unique to Siege - there are so many unique locations that I am not aware of on Siege and would like to get familiar with

    Discuss the ongoing Story Arc - Siege is currently up to date and the plan is to use this storyline to encourage other community events. For example, Alrdic has been mentioned and would like to come out of his old age retirement to train his own motley crew to assist in protecting towns from invasions.

    Ask about interest in New Magincia project (gardening) - this does not include any huge plans for revamping the town. It is simply to engage those who enjoy gardening to invest their time in New Magincia

    Making use of the current EM related halls:
    EM Reward Hall - the Reward Hall has been turned over to me to put to good use with events
    EM Counselor Guild Hall - Many thanks to Mesanna for the new decorations
    Gate to Serpent's Hold - this gate was explained as an alternate area to meet with players since the Britain Castle is a faction area
    EM home outside of Britain - after discussing this home with Mesanna and where to better focus my efforts right now, she helped me move the items to the EM Reward Hall to create an area there that focuses on townships and historical homes. While you will notice the house is gone, it does not mean that area can not be put to use in the future. The Reward Hall will see a redesign that I hope will benefit everyone more, is not part of a faction town and will create a more social area since we have more plans for that area. If you look at other shard Halls, you will notice a lot more detail and planning to make good use of that space. I hope you all agree once you see it :)


    The feedback given to me Saturday was related to:
    Event ideas from players (player escort event, pvp thunt event, arena fights, hub pub)

    The arena outside of Wrong is gone

    Providing a gate to the Occlo Arena

    Address how Covetous points are being used on Siege and how it affects the play style on our shard

    My own motto regarding Siege:
    Siege is not separate, just different in a good way.
