After last nights graveyard event, which featured well over an hour of spawn, culminating in a boss Mongbat, EM Dudley (and the Spirit Advisor) hung around to chat with anyone who cared to for quite a long time. He is a very patient person, and was fortunately wearing a doublet which was crafted by the Minoc Flak Jacket Co. hehe....cute and creative. First I want to say, the event was great fun, and unique items were given out in undisclosed numbers: Some sort of unique bandages which I did not see Orange hued lanterns, named light of knowledge. (Tancred got one and might be persuaded to post a screenie) A book off the Mongbat boss...aptly titled The Top Prize. (This was won by Pearl) I'm going to apologize, I have no screenshots and will be telling high points from memory. ~ Some events will give items and some will not. ~There will be an event next month called Feast of the Harvest Moon. ~ The contest and silly fun type events like at last weekends Harvest Moon Festival, will be prizes like GM crafted clothing with clever names. (I received two of those; one for apple bobbing contest, a jester hat crafted by Britannia Apple Growers Inc., 6 total given out; and a wizard hat for costume contest crafted by Moonglow Costume Emporium, 5 total given out.) ~ "Meatier" Events, featuring battles and such will feature giveaways of more unique items, such as last nights lanterns and bandages. ~ All the EM's had a meeting Monday night with their boss to clarify what they should and shouldn't be giving, and in what numbers. There should be more equity between shards. Movement is going away from globally handing out items to everyone. ~ Said numbers of each item will be undisclosed ~ The Commander Foxx/Belander saga will be ending next month with an Epic ending...Epic being the word Dudley used. ~ A dual Tram/Fel event is in the works, might be slightly different on each facet. He is not sure what to do about the fel duels, I assume from what i've read this is due to technical issues to prevent griefing...but you would need to ask him that. ~ Constructive feedback and ideas continue to be invited, and everyone should try to attend the House of Common meetings, held on Sunday nights at 9 ~ He feels that for him, in game methods are the best for getting word out to folks. He favors scrolls because the event announcers are limited to one-liners and are more cumbersome to set up. ~ Don't expect a lot of updates on the website, Dudley is a person after all, and freely admitted to us that website construction is "by far not his strong suit". There may be more but after I came into the talk a few minutes late and had a short's night sleep, this is what stands out for me. The chat began with some players being pretty unhappy, but I think by the end, everyone had a better understanding of things. Thank you Dudley and Vladimere for the time and patience you put into all that you do!
