    Question for EM Drosselmeyer: Can you please provide more information on what you and Mesanna are willing to do for recognizing player-run towns on Siege? You indicated that "township series" are out of the question at this time, but seemed to leave the door open to the possibility of erecting town banners.

    I think Chesapeake (and possibly also Baja) have what you referred to as township series and many shards also now seem to have been spruced up with town banners (some quite elaborate). What's required for player-run towns on Siege to at least be recognized with town banners?

    Right now, the focus is more on getting things setup and running as far as events go, as that is the first priority; Once things are working well and fluidly on a regular basis, Townships will be looked at. If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

    Drosselmeyer was only ever a temporary EM. But it would have been nice to see him finish his story.

    You're guess is as good as mine on what happened to the training Mesanna was suppose to do with newer EMs (using siege as a playground etc). Maybe no new EMs have started but its quite conviently been forgetton :(

    As sad as it is, I really don't see much need for it on Siege. Only really Gilfane left near Skara Brae. I know someone in general chat was talking about bringing back Barter Town but I think thats just one man doing it lol.

    I would love to see a Town Banner for Gilfane but am not expecting it to be a priority in the near future.

    The wedding registry house next door to the EM Counselor's Hall will also be a Historical Society. This will include a place for townships and historical homes (10+yrs) to register.

    barter town had applied for a township for years, back when it was a full town with at least a dozen + houses and the application was completely ignored at the time, chad asked multiple times on the status and was completely ignored while every day other shards were posting new townships left and right :/ Might be a little late for townships now as most of the towns are dissolved and the remaining players from most towns moved to better locations.

    I'd love to see the program come back though....90% of our guildmembers are ex-THIEF members anyways so we could found "new-bartertown" up by wrong (near half the houses up there in front of wrong are our guild anyways). If we could ever have something set up like some shards have with a EM made teleporter hub to the different towns of siege that could be reason to try and pull everyone in closer to one area.
