    This shard needs some publicity.. Petra has enough clout to put this junk on the main stratics page.. all the better to update the Feb 2008 news.

    PvP tourneys
    PvP mage only
    PvP melee only
    PvP mixed
    Chess tourneys, misc boardgames

    Offer nice cash prizes and many people will join. Charge them entry fees. Prizes could be paid for be "Molly's Emporium.. moonglow gate blah blah, Speedy's vendor.. yew gate bleh" along with some nice donations from the Siege elite.

    It's not a question of 'clout'. The items that go on the front page are 'news' written by our reporters.

    It was to this end that Luka, who is our most currently active reporter, tried to organise some events for Christmas, which she intended to write reports on.

    I tried to make a scavenger hunt. No one did it.
    Luka tried to do a 'capture the flag' type event with herself as the 'flag'. I can only assume from the dead-end the thread came to that no one did that either.

    The only other person to respond to her call for 12 events for Christmas was Cybernickel.

    Organise an event and we'll approve it for the calendar, Luka, if she can, or Otto, if he's around, will write it up and it will go on the 'News' page.

    She has a point. Player-run events are not as popular as they used to be, for some reason. I think most of the people who used to attend the events are gone...... Skylark, Caster, most of KSS, CWS, and I^A. I know there are still members of these guilds around but maybe RL interferes with attendance. I know this is the case for me.

    Good luck with your tourneys, Sweeney. I hope people actually support it. I really do. Siege could really use some good player-run events again.
