So what do u want 4 Easter?

    I know it's a bit early but I couldn't help starting to think about little fluffy bunnies!! There are so many things that could happen... what do you want this year?

    1. What if we received colored carrots like certain shards did at Christmas? Except they would have some notation about the Easter Bunny. Also, they could be all pastel colors to make sure there is no confusion between the two. These could be given as a drop like the stag event, as a regular gift or even like the Valentine event from a ticket.

    Speaking of the Stag and Valentine event:
    2. The Valentine event was really fun. What if that happened again except the "creatures" were all vibrant colored bunnies that you had to kill? The locations would have to be different from the last event. Instead of getting bears, we could get pastel or two-tone colored stuffy "bunnies" or "chicks"? To make it simpler, it could just be an enlarged/frozen version of the chicken and rabbits currently in the game. These could also be different colors and, of course, be from the Easter Bunny!
    3. Or what about the stag event? What about the EMs being bunnies instead? Can you imagine trying to follow one of those stinkers around? They could drop carrots and eggs or even little bunnies that follow the eggs sayings of last year (i.e. chocolate bunny, chocolate covered blah-blah bunny, etc). All would be colored, of course!

    I would love to see something with bunnies and carrots though! Any thoughts?? I am tired right now but this is a way to start it off.

    OH! I want to use a taxidermy kit on my purple bunnies too! We need more purple items (and I am not talking about things that can be colored purple) :p

    I want a SINGLE item if its anything. Not a whole wack of stuff that I have to sort threw. Maybe throwable easter eggs and if you got negative karma its a rotten one. Scratch that just make it random.

    All I want for Easter is a new apron from Navrey, but seriously NO MORE CHOCOLATE, plays havoc with my tamers diet, her Mare, Dread and Cu refuse to come out of stables until she looses weight, after Valentine day chocolates.

    Easter eggs that can be used like the old snow piles would be fun.

    I would like to see different pastel colored chickens spawn, and once you kill one you have a chance to get a pastel colored egg off it. the egg would work like dyes every egg would have 10 or so charges on them.

    Something that has a chance for semi-rare,rare,ultra rare and unique. So that everything just don't go in the garbage a day later. Help bring back the rare community and collection museums.

    I want world peace, ok and a few other things please.

    I do NOT want Ems running all over 90 mph dropping stuff. Those with faster connections and extra added attractions get most of it. :(

    I do NOT want to have to kill creatures with a bazillion hit points just to get an egg. Please... :)

    Hiding the eggs like last year on Atlantic was the best! :)

    Maybe we should give the Ems an Easter event, something nice I mean...

    Hail Sosarians,

    In the "spirit" of Easter, how bout having all the cemeteries and graves give up their dead in mass resurrections ...

    How bout during the Easter season (duration of the Easter event) every character in game is insta rezzed ...

    How bout uber bunnies (you kno, 6 foot tall like Harvey from the movie) perhaps spawning in common white color, more rare random colors, and the most rare (a royal purple Easter color) with each color of the spawned bunny also reflected on its egg which drops in hunters pack

    lastly, how bout Ghosts resurrected from Sosaria's past, a ghost of Lord British and Blackthorne, ghost of mondain and Minax, ghost of Clainin and Casca and Aino Nystad appearing randomly throughout the facets similar to revenants with interesting messages or viscious needing vanquished with unique loot

    or ...

    how bout a small protrusion slowly, day by day rising from the ground. Appearing first to be the top of a small gold stone, growing daily till upon Eastern morn the fully risen stone explodes as champ bosses do with piles of gold littering the landscape around the Midas Egg, or stone of plenty ... LoL

    Feel free to use any of these ideas, this year, or in future years as development time may rule out this year.

    An SoS

    p.s. I'd settle for a return of neon bunnies tamable ... make em tougher than greaters in pre-tame form and weak as real bunnies once tamed

    Finding an Easter basket would be nice. How about chocolate Easter bunnies?

    I'd love a fun Easter event but I work on Sundays... so I guess I'd miss it yet again this year.

    But I'd enjoy an Easter egg that I could put in my incubator and hatch like a chicken lizard only this would hatch a big battle bunny.... *grins*
     
  20. Don't really much care....
     
  21. A box of 24 colored carrots so people can complain they cant store them all.
     
  22. New colored easter bunnies to tame?

    Or 24 randomly colored easter eggs that cannot be eaten, total of 512 colors and 100 DEV names and make collectors suffer. Make sure some of the colors are ultra rare. To be fair nothing too crazy 1 in 10000 chance to get 1 of the 3 rare colors and 1 in 2000 chance to have a rare DEV name.
     
  24. I agree your idea is better.

    Nothing, especially not another box with 10+ items.
    Better still - new Spring Cleaning, so I can get rid of previous boxes with items... (before I decide to get rid f them the easy way - waste bin).

    personally, i don't think we need religion in a game.

    instead of "easter", how about "springtime"

    - across the shards no snow falling (but lots of rain)
    - flowers bloom in felucca for a few days
    - turn up spawn on wolves, bunnies & deer as they are breeding
    - turn up spawn on bears as they wake up from hibernation
    - raise water level in lakes & rivers as they flood with thaw

    and maybe give every player a seed of some sort that will grow a special "spring 2010" plant to promote gardening again. maybe the resource it gives would be something like the silver seed in the abyss, but is generated only every full moon (once a month?) that a player can plant in static land for auto rezzing. to avoid abuse, only the player who owns the plant [or harvested the seed] would be able to use said seeds - that way people won't be hoarding and selling them at outrageous prices.

    so... a plant you need to grow that will give a resurrection seed once a month for only the player that grew the plant... or harvested the seed... or something like that. plant can be any of the existing plants, just a special color (silver?) and named something like "plant of springtime" or whatever...


    now THAT would be in the "spirit" of renewal.

    of all the items from Valentines day the only one I kept was the rose from Mesanna. The rest hit the trash barrel when it appeared no one on the shard wanted them. <shrug>

    Roflmao...

    Finding hidden easter eggs sounds good.

    I liked the halloween event tons and tons, so maybe it could be fashioned after it? The best thing about it is that it lasted a while (a week or two, right?), so if you work a lot, you still have a chance to get something.

    I'm not saying exactly like it... I didn't like the end of it as much as the beginning, trying to hunt down essences was more of a grind than anything (although I realize some people may have enjoyed that part more)... but I like finding clues and solving problems... thats always fun.

    I didn't know I liked mysteries until they did that, and then that one murder mystery event in Yew a few months ago (Atlantic) was fun... wish I could have gone to the court hearing, but life happens :(

    I know that kind of thing isn't for some people. Maybe they could mix it up a little... a little bit of clue finding, a little bit of fighting....? Maybe make it so that you don't have to clue find to start, anymore than you have to fight to finish? :p

    I like the gardening idea.

    A special seed, or plant, or extra-fertile dirt. Maybe an "essence of renewal" potion that will take one seed to full maturity in the regular time without the need for daily maintenance.

    Perhaps a rare-hued chicken lizard spawn, like the purple rabbits, or a hidden egg that will hatch a rare chicken.

    I'd be happy with just an EM special event but it's fun to speculate.
     
  35. Charbear

    Wow! I think she meant something more realistic than bug fixes. :lol:

    Plus, there are plenty of pixel-crack-joes on here as there have always been. I don't think "we" expect anything but like to speculate if something is coming or happening. Some people will never be happy and only live to complain...

    Woohoo!! I like the bunnies and carrots idea. And I luv u, Cur-baby, for stating the obvious about purple items. :heart: Woot, woot!

    I think an Easter basket would be cute... I guess. We do have that herb basket so...

    An easter egg hunt? There must be something better than that. There are eggs for sale all over the place.

    What is wrong with chocolate? No one is asking for the candy/chocolate pieces that we can't stack and have been handed out before. I think something with a different shape would be good with chocolate "something or other" attached to it.

    I do NOT like the idea of more animals to tame. What is the point? I have several bunnies rotting away in the stable. Now, if they made it so you could turn "special" animals into statues or some other action so you could see them all the time, I would like that very much. I am legendary and have a stable full of junk. I haven't taken those bunnies out but once. If you can't see them all the time, why are they important?

    I think it's the other way around. The players have got the devs trained into the idea that they must produce something for the players for every holiday.
    I don't need anything from the Devs for Easter. I didn't need anything from the Devs for Valentines either, and a single item for the anniversary and Christmas would be sufficient to mark the occasion.

    How about more Heritage Tokens in the shape of colored bunny statues?

    Have the list of choices also include things like the beehive & other non-vetern items. Having some new items to deco with would be neat.

    Another idea would be a pet colored bunny, one per account, that would always stay within a house, or bankbox, and lay a Heritage Token in the form of a colored egg once or twice a month.

    Giant Bunnies that spawn in the new lands. They give a basket that works like the cornucopia.

    Rather than waking to gifts, a quest to help bring a special bunny to the Moonglow Zoo, and receive a monster title like we got Slime Hunter from the slime event for helping; maybe if an item is needed, a lily with our own names on them to give to friends.

    LOL!!

    The bug fix ppl: I am sure there are other ppl on this board that know you so if something is given out, you should probably hand it over to those ppl. I mean... since you don't want anything but (to complain)... bug fixes.

    And all the other ppl who are complaining that we expect things and blah-blah: I am sure there are ppl on here that know you as well. If you participate in an event or keep any items handed out, you are nothing but hypocrites.

    Religion ppl: Can't we all just get along?

    Christmas trees, Christmas gifts, lights, santa, colored eggs, and bunnies are not religious things just material things used to celebrate these holidays. The religious part of these holidays is going to a church. sitting thru mass, and praying.
    Because eggs are used for Easter a religious holiday do people who do not celebrate Easter stop using eggs?

    Because gifts are used for Christmas a religious holiday do people who do not celebrate Christmas stop buy gifts?

    Because lights are used for Christmas a religious holiday do people who do not celebrate Christmas stop using lights?

    We don't go to church to pray to the Easter bunny material things people enjoy them even if you don't celebrate these holidays.

    Last night a friend and I were looking at different shards to see which would be fun to move to and happened upon a Baja event.

    One of the prizes was the Christmas topiary dyed in various neon and other colors. Very unique! Those were one of a kind but could they be done in OTHER shades for Easter maybe (in quantities)? So as not to ruin their stuff. Or another plant could be used. It was different is all.

    We tried in vain to find out how the event worked. Baja's slogan is very true.

    The goblin players were absolutely the best rp's we have ever seen and insanely funny too. *bows* Thank you goblins for making an awkward time very fun!

    The goblins kept changing colors, how I do not know, maybe a special Em mask.

    Here's one that might be popular, particularly with those who live out of their bankbox.

    How about a detailed decorative Easter basket that holds the usual 125 items but counts as only 1 item in a bankbox, backpack or house?

    The religious debate has been removed. Anyone wishing to discuss that topic is invited to do so in UHall OT.
