    Chesapeake House of Commons 1/2/10

    EM Dudley welcomed guests inside the Chesapeake House of Commons last eve for the weekly meet among the realms citizens. Those in attendance were brought up to speed on the weeks events as well as Q & A with Dudley himself.


    The meeting began with the reading of the newly placed policy on item drops here on the shard in response to queries at the recent Shard Meetup. Dudley reiterated the sentiments of Mesanna:

    " Every event will not result in an item drop.

    Information regarding when a drop will occur will not be available.

    Information regarding quantity of items dropped will not be available.

    Participation rewards from contests will be of the unique GM crafter variety and will be made available to all those who participate. Not every contest will feature a participation reward.

    Winners of contest style events will have a record of the accomplishment placed in the Hall of Victory in Malas and when fitting, a normal statue crafted out of Gold, Normal, or Bronze granite and engraved with a statue engraving tool reflecting the accomplishment will be given to the winner(s).

    Any reward that will be traded to a player by a robe or RPC character will be of the unique GM crafter variety or engraved using readily available inscription tools.

    Renamed, uniquely hued, or unique art rewards will be randomly placed on monsters during an event. Information as to which monsters or how many will not be available. When appropriate these items will be offered as unannounced stealables as well.

    Reward givers will distribute rewards to those who participate in the event only following the conclusion of a major story arc where appropriate.

    Holiday rewards will be setup by Mesanna at her discretion in a location she determines. "

    Also noted were several other topics so eloquently described in the EM Forums that I thought I'd include them in the news! Thanks Jordy!

    " Tancred expressed distaste for the inclusion of spoilers in the events schedule and asked if they could be removed. Dudley explained that they were there for those who had asked for a summary of upcoming events, but that they were to be included as clickable spoiler links so as not to spoil the surprise for those who didn't want them.

    Demon Slayer asked about the plaque that was to be posted with his name for winning the duck hunt even earlier last year. Dudley told him that he had asked some time ago that anyone who had won an event and had not been recognized to contact him and let him know. Dudley said he would fix it as soon as possible.

    Cordelia told Dudley that the spoiler links in the events post on the forums was not working properly and that they were displaying the spoilers for everyone. Dudley told her that Morpheus was fixing these links.

    Dudley announced the winners in the holiday house decorating contest. He also said that each of the three winners would have a placard of some sort placed in front of their lots signifying their participation in the contest. Sundina asked if it was possible to have the community vote on the houses. Dudley explained that it's problematic because of people voting on multiple characters, people who don't use the forums, or people who might miss out if voting was done live in-game. He said that he would look at doing something like that in future contests of this nature."

    Couldnt have explained it better myself! And of course we couldn't forget John Wayne! Ejected not for his taste in character names but unruly behavior during the meet! The top three entrants in the Holiday House Decoration Contest are listed in their own post here. Congratulations!


    Join us next Sunday at 9pm EST for the next installment of the House of Commons here on Chesapeake!
