    This particular event is Sunday yes THP, But in no way are we saying Sunday is the 'EM Night'. The poll shows people are available Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays mostly, Thursdays also show a strong performance so we'll cater to all of those days the best we can.

    Because the "evil" Blackthorn was a doppelganger created by Exodus, or something on those lines.
    The bones of it are that Blackthorn himself didn't turn evil, it was all Exodus.

    Will PROTESTORS be allowed to be there too disturbing this or will we get kicked out of the Castle if we do?
    Just to ask...

    Depends on Blackthorn's mood at a the time I guess. :D

    We're working on a new site to replace the current site, Unfortunately I don't have access to the current site which is why I don't use it.

    Well...we can test out how he reacts to protests.
    He might reveal himselfe evil putting us protestors into jail, or sending his guards on us..all that in front of maybe the biggest crowd since 10 years..
    But than he also might die to a Fire Field ROFL
    Oh well lets see if protestors will apear!

    You can ask Emile Layne or even Sarakan about how to access the Europa EM website.

    A lot of it developed in the official fiction on the UO Herald site (which is now uo.com) I don't often get to attend EM events now but have been following outside the game, as much as possible

    All being well and barring disasters I'm hoping to be livestreaming this event.
    Could I therefore respectfully request people restrict themselves to 'family friendly' language?

    Same for me - did not see the gate until it was closed, because was looking the wrong direction following the returning masses. (Did not even know that there was a gate!)
    So 2 hours spent at the event, but not gotten the promised gift ...
    Frustrating.

    And was even rude to me when i asked them about it. :(
    Other than getting griefed it was quite good. :)
    Archery contest was a nice touch. ;)
    Thanks to the EM's for a fun afternoon, :thumbup:

    From skimming back through my journal, I found the final results - which are in the spoiler to allow for a proper 'official' announcement to bring the news to those who prefer it that way, or want to find out by looking at the plinth where the competition was held ;)

    Comments by Fynn Barrett :

    We had quite a few good archers here tonight
    And therefore the second place is shared for a host of
    Tauriel!
    Thor!
    Nimuaq!
    Anna Goodward!
    You all scored an impressive 150 points!
    And all your names will be added to the momument
    Good job!
    But tonight's winner
    He scored an impressive 200 points!
    Unfortunately he had to leave
    But the winner with 200 points was Titanium!
    His name will be added to the momument as well
    That's it for the official part of the contest tonight

    Having gone to a few of the other shards, I have to say the Europa one was by far the best. Well done EM's!! The event was dressed well, had the right NPC's.. even the guards (and deco!)!!! None of the other Shards had that!!

    Awesome event, well done guys!

    Personally I was a bit disappointed, I much preferred Dawn's coronation which followed the traditional path of the candidate being annointed by the Archbishop. This 'coronation' appeared to consist of an instant transformation of a monk to a King.
