    Once the Shadowlords have (hopefully) been defeated, and the Stygian Abyss is laid bare to us overground invaders, what will happen to the EM program? Will there be a new main storyline for them to follow, or will they start carving out shard-specific histories through ingame events which they have personally prepared? Curious to get people's take on this, would you prefer there to be a main thread to tie their events together or do you prefer the more tailored events they have been running alongside the War of Shadows plotline?

    Well I'm sure that EA will still be doing their own events and handing them to the EM's to run in addition to events that the EM's themselves have planned on.

    The EM program should still be ok and will keep moving along the way it is. I'm sure both EA and the EM's are prepared for whatever will come after SA comes out.

    Perhaps the main story line going on right now still has a lot of events planned out even after SA is release? Mag still needs to be re-built after-all :D

    I've got to be honest, the EM events are too slow moving for me and seem more catered for the RP crowd. It doesn't bother me though, I just don't go to them.

    No way, man. The Atlantic events have been great. Our old EMs were great, but our new ones are even more active. Come check it out.

    Holiday events, Seasonal events, community activities alone can keep the EM's busy, a continued story arch with relations between the Gargoyles and Elves/Humans will more than likely continue after SA is released. Who knows what else is waiting for us in the wings. I look forward to working with the EM's on Catskills and developing our own shard history along with any content the Dev's release to production shards.

    Again, agreed totally. If they weren't volunteers I'd be barking for them to get raises.

    They aren't volunteers. They are contract workers and are paid a modest wage.
