    The tour was incredible. Thank you, Wildstar, for opening your doors to Baja and the information of days of old for those of us that weren't around for them.
  3. I would like to thank the following people:

    Lord Sid Vicious, War Wizard, Dawn for letting me use some of his 10th anniversity hertiage tokens and a few other items.

    Lord Exodus, TAO, for his gerenouse donation of a Library Reading Chair, Skinned Deer and several other items that you can see in various buildings in Dawn.

    Sinister Illusion - LSN and all of the other people/guilds for their continued presence which allowed for a safe and pleasant tour for the guests of the Kingdom.

    Lady Sara and Lady Oriana from TAO for all of their help with this project.
