  1. I had no clue there was a "mini-event" tonight. We really need over a day heads up. I didn't see a lantern, or any news from the crier in Luna.

    I'm trying to have fun and get ahead in the Crux, but what's up with all the impulse events?

    Hello Falcon.

    Mini-events are smaller unannounced events, they rarely move the story forward, and rarely have rewards (I do not consider books rewards).

    A Mini-Event is really just an event format that lends itself to creating a living breathing world as opposed to a scripted one.

    Anything overly important, and major plot elements are almost always announced (like the one I posted today).

    Mini-Events are also a tool for me to simply run an event when I have a couple hours. They are fairly one dimensional, (ie: Evil Necromancer animates a graveyard!)

    None of my events are designed for every player to attend every event, its just not possible, with my schedule, your schedule and the 12? different timezones. This is why I strive to always post recaps of events, and important plot elements and why our stratics reporters are awesome.

    Do not get discouraged, these past 3 events have just been plot devices for me to get the 3 encoded books into the hands of the public, there is a thread on the main Atlantic board (That I cant reply to because its not here on the EM board!) involving the cracking of the three codes.
     
  3. That helps :) I was thinking I had to go to every one to progress in rank, and keep up to date on what's going on. More of a heads up would still be nice for me, though :)

    That's easily fixed. I'll move the thread here and merge it with the continuation (along with a forwarding link from the main forum to the one here...)
