Saturday afternoon and Monday night EM Cernunnos took the time to get to know the residents of the Catskills shard a bit better. He invited everyone to come meet him and ask any questions that they might have, along with handing out sashes of greeting to anyone who desired one. He was given special permission to give out these sashes due to him being assigned to the Catskills shard after most of the other EMs were in place on their respective shards, and they had already given out their Sashes of greetings. "> Originally EM Cernunnos was only suppose to have his meet and Greet on Saturday afternoon, but due to the low turnout a second “Meet and Greet” was arranged at a hour when more players could attend. The second one also had EM Kasaven join him to joke with the much larger crowd and also hand out a few sashes of his own. At first the two EMs were surrounded by people desiring their sashes, but soon a organized line was made and EM Cernunnos tirelessly handed out sahes to every single person that wanted one. In a huge surprise even Mesanna (UO Associate Development Manager in charge of the EM program) made an appearance to place a new Animal Trainer at the front of the hall so there would not be so many pets lagging the area. The EM Hall has also gained a new tavernkeeper to keep the thirsty pirate well supplied. Tuesdays night the Knight's Rest Tavern and Shadowmoor Community Center hosted a Bard's Night in Skara Brae, at the Shattered Skull Tavern, and EM Cernunnos joined in to listen to the tales about “Life in the City”. On a side note EM Cernunnos placed a new lantern letting those players who are doing the “Botanical Research Event” that he will be collecting the books from 8 p.m. EST till midnight on April 30th. Meaning you just have most of today to complete your book and turn it in to him.
