    Plan was to have the next rare festival on Atlantic. I was going to host it once I bought Wynn's old house but then I decided I did not want to buy it for the gold being asked!

    So, ya probably should be on Atlantic.

    The final decision will not be made until i have had a chance to examine all options and factors. I am leaning strongly to my original home shard though as it is seemingly the best fit. More info will be made public in the coming days. -Aspen [DVI]

    Aye.

    Instead of just one shard though, it should be a tour. One week Atlantic, next Baja, then Sonoma, etc. :D

    me but the quality of items in the europa one was far worse than the quality of items in the atlantic and ls ones, so lets give people items in for sale people, and have better events... the best event so far was that one on atlantic with the house designed like a maze and u had to spell out the thing from different books

    DVI Guest

    I completely understand your concerns, and dont blame you. If anyone is going to have to transfer to another shard to buy and sell items and participate in player run events they should be able to expect a certain minimum level of quality.

    As I have in the past, I will be soliciting participants for a list of items they will be bringing for sale or trade. This way others can anticipate what they may be interested in and bring an appropriate amount of money. I also plan to use my normal event team to plan the festival and help run the events to bring those who chose to attend events that will be engaging and entertaining. There were some problems with the LS festival which are mainly my fault due to last minute scheduling conflict. I've taken into account my personal life and will be scheduling the festival around it to ensure my presence.

    If anyone else has any concerns or suggestions they are of course welcome.

    Also, I have had only one bid for the festival so far, if anyone else would be interested in making a bid, please feel free to contact me via pm or email [email protected]

    Thank you,

    Aspen [DVI]

    will these items be on display for the general (and by general i mean poor) public?? i would love to go to this and see some of the things im missing.
     
  31. DVI

    DVI Guest

    Depending on where the festival is held the owner of the house may chose to display their collection. Any items for sale and most for trade will be on vendors for other participants to view and contemplate purchasing. Other attendees may also chose to wear some of their best or rare items.

    All are welcome to attend the festival whether you are a collector or simply have a passing interest. The event is not restricted to only those who collect or only the wealthy with the best collections.

    The purpose of the festival is not only to display , but to sell , buy, and trade, as well as give the rares community a place to meet and socalize in game. Also it is a good opportunity for those who are just starting down the path of collecting or are interested in doing so to meet veteran collectors and learn from them.
