Township Mayors Summit

Discussion in 'UO Chesapeake' started by Eyes of Sosaria, Oct 12, 2011.

  1. A while back, I was in a conversation, trying to gather news to report, when the subject of having a very unique meeting take place. What was that idea? To have, for the first time in a while or for the the first time ever, a "Summit Meeting" of *ALL Mayors* consisting in the World of Sosaria, on Chessy.

    Ever since the death of Queen Dawn and the fall of the Monarchy, no leaders have been brought together in a Summit style meeting. These meetings, sometimes futile, sometimes beneficial, brought the "Heads of State" together under a common bond. Reguardless of what anyone thought about the Monarchy's Summit Meetings, I got to really thinking about how cool andd great it would be to have at least 2 , maybe 3 Heads of State meetings and have them take place at the old *Summit Room* at the Castle. This room has been vacant since the fall and would be a perfect place to meet. Could have the EM's possibly lock down a book representing each mayor of each town in Sosaria.

    Now, if you think about it, each township, maybe combined with another, hold events, want to hold events, or something in that manner. Sometimes they would like to hold events but don't have the resources, people, area, or what ever the case may be.

    If all Mayors were to meet and get together, they could come up with plans, as a group, for various events for the well being of all citizens of Sosaria. When a lot of heads are put together, you'd be surprised at the ideas that might flow across the table. Events could be very wide ranging, form picnics to hunts, from fishing expiditions to sea battles, from large community yardsales to the largest auction in the history of Sosaria. The ideas could be endless. (But would take a "Summit Meeting" like this to talk about, plan, co-ordinate, etc., such plans. Thgere are alot of GM tailors, carpenters, etc, that could make stuff for these events, combined efforts could raise money for township projects, big prize money, stuff like that.

    So what I would like to do is to find out if an interest like this would be out there and possible. The first meeting, for example, could be like on Wednesday's like the old days, say 8 PM or 9 PM, maybe starting the 2nd of November for winter time planning, maybe another in febuary or March for Spring events, another maybe in May for summer events. (That could all be agreed at possibly the first meeting).

    So what i would like to do is have those that read stratics and are Mayors, have influence on Mayor's, know the Mayor of your town and can talk to him/her, and really get a feeling on this idea.

    We are a player run game, player run world, and the players control its out come. It would be kind of nice to see all the Mayors meet and come up with some of the fantastic ideas they have or have had and want to expand on them. I have had the privalege of meeting alot of great township Mayors, and they have been really Great. And they have had alot of super events or ideas for some. It would be nice to have all Mayors meet and exchange their ideas and make the game even more fun then what it is.

    So a feed back from those interested or not are asked to leave youur comment on this thread, please.

    Thank you from a reporter who cares about people and their ideas.

    I am all for the idea.

    I am the Mayor of the KFC township.

    Now before people go all crazy and say wth is the KFC township, we are definitely the smallest township in the shard. Our town-stone has our humble remembrance of our beloved Thunder Chicken (may he RIP).

    Those of you who missed our event, didn't see the trial of Thunder Chicken. Sadly he was accused of fostering chicklets with many of the Hens in the shard and not paying feed support. His untimely death is still unknown, but his remains were stuffed and perched on our tone-stone, God bless em...

    :(

    I can say that I'm Personally interested.


    I'll pass it along to KaV OOC Leaders and EVI OOC Leaders for their Official comment
     
  5. I was glad to see leaders or people that could speak for leaders responding to this thread. This I truely and whole-heartly feel is a meeting that would *really benefit* all of the communities and players across the shard. It would or might bring in the participation of players that might not normally know whats happening on the Shard as far as events are concerned or even know where towns exsist. It would also bring together the bonding of townships and their leaders in a common goal. Like I mentioned before, so many townships want to have an event(s) and don't have the resources, people, etc. This is where a meeting of the minds could help out. The Mayoral Leadership of Chessy in a meeting like this could be the driving force for some large participation in non-EM events. Even the smallest of the communities, places players don't really hear from or know that they exsist, could make an impact on the shard.

    I know that alot of you reading this understand the point I'm trying to get across without keep rambling on. (I appoligize for that). But sometimes when you feel strong about something, its one of those things you really want to try and get across. I hear alot of times that people wish there was more going on. I also read that when people get on, they'll say "anything going on tonight?" Well, the leadership meeting might just be able to fill that questionable gap.

    So I really appreciate the feedback on this issue and hope we all can get something going in relation to the Mayor's Summit. For anyone that wants to get ahold of me or can pass the word on to their mayors, can contact me on ICQ @ 613-919-628 or PM me here on Stratics. I will definately respond.

    * I know some people like Goblins snuggle into their hammocks early, but timing has always been an issue in a game like this*. I'm not really sure how to get around it, but maybe someone does. :)

    Keep the responses coming and we'll see where it goes from there. I know the holidays are coming and this would or might be a good time to really have a multi township holiday season to kick it off and get it started.

    Thank you

  7. AHOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! me landlubbing maties. After confiring with me shipmates aboard our wave-cutting vessel, the Old Sea-Hag, and having our fill of ye ole stolen ale, ( compliments of a few raids), we came to that there, what ye call conclusions, that we would be willing to put down our cutlass's and attend a great meeting such as this. The ones that didn't agree now are banging mugs, hand to hand, with me good friend, Davey Jones.

    So we be think'n that this here meeting , "shivering at the thought of rubbing elbows with the enemy", might be a somethin to be taken seriously. It would be interesting to see what all the Mayors of this here land of Sosaria could come up with to be able to put their shrunk'n heads together and really come up with some great stuff and fun times.

    The resourses, materials, gold, and available manpower that could be mustered might be just enough to get some great events going ,like: picnics, hunts, adventures, gold to help new people, crafting, market days, like someone said: "The largest auction/yard sale in Sosaria's history". The ideas are endless when you can put some great minds together...("pats himself on back")....lol

    So come on you landlubbing scallywaging dogs, Lets show what this here gathering of the Mayors can do for the shard and really set fire to alot of fun times..("remembers the burning of a few places"...:) Har!!!!!!!!

    So give that there feed back to this here thread and lets see if we can bring in the New Year with something different like this here "Mayors Summit".and from what me spies tell me, this here Idea was brought forth by some landlubber called :Mayor Zanku of a small town called Nidaros. So if this falls through, then we can always ransack his town for coming up with a stupid idea....Har Har!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looks as if such a meeting is certainly agreeeable, why not set a date to this proposal? How bout Jan. 5th. around 8pm est. We have a room available to us in Castle Britannia or is there somewhere else in mind?
