(NEWS) Luna Bank Runes locked down and Ideas Wanted!!

    Locked Runes And Book?
    Luna City Bank
    September 1, 2009


    Two runes are locked down on the Luna bank
    floor along with a blue book with information. The two runes
    are for Chesapeakes two auction houses KFC and SHE auction

    These runes were locked down by EM Vladimere. After contacting the KFC
    Auction house and SHE auction house it was revealed to me why this was
    done. Simply put griefers. EM Vladimere did this for them after watching
    for weeks runes being collected as they were laying them down. EM Vladimere
    put a kink in the griefers plans by locking the rune. This was seen as not
    just trying to stop people from picking them up but, also seen as EM
    Vladimere trying to help promote the shard community. We hope that this
    addition stays and is improved upon.
    Maybe they could do runebooks.
    "Chesapeake Auction Houses"
    "Chesapeake Vendor Malls"
    "Chesapeake Static Events"

    King Hen the GM of KFC released this statement around noon.

    “Having a rune locked down is an outstanding way to promote community events. Whether this is a permanent feature of EM Vladimere or not, I for one appreciate all that he has done to date for the Chesapeake shard. While some folks have issues with one another, this is certainly something that can be looked upon as a positive. The two runes that are locked down currently are the only two auctions on the shard to date. Obviously the more consistent events that are ran, the issue of “room” could come up. For now it is a nice reminder that our EM is active and is aware of what is going on in our shard. It is my understanding that EM Vladimere enjoys community events and we have been blessed to have him at our auction house several times.”

    Mesanna snuck onto the Chesapeake shard to look at the runes. She
    probably thought she would get past me. I have people everywhere
    Mesanna!! Anyways she then asked people at the bank what they
    thought. They all agreed it was a good idea.

    Sami agreed it looked untidy. So Mesanna is asking for people to give
    ideas on how to make it look more presentable. You should let EM
    Dudley or Vladimere know your ideas. I myself will be doing one and
    posting it here since they read the forums. You can also send your
    ideas to EM Dudley at [email protected]

    Get your minds a turning people. Lets see if we cannot do something
    for runes and not have to put down 50 runes all at once hmm?

    Attend the All Shard Meeting Tomorrow At 8pm EST

    The Blaze Tent is in the Luna Fairgrounds South of Luna City
    That is where the meeting will be held. It is unknown if it is
    just EM Vladimere and Em Dudley or if Mesanna will be there

    "If we are going to do this I want everyone to understand this is for everyone/guild on the shard."

    for cleanliness - why not have a locked down runebook with points of interest for the shard?

    My idea

    Simple and Basic. What do you think?


    Rune Book For Auctions
    RuneBook For Vendor Malls Outside Of Luna
    (Since this is in Luna)
    RuneBook For Static Weekly Events

    I didn't want to get to fancy with idea. Also Mesanna make sure you use
    Draconis script thing for laying down items and tiles. That way they wont
    be highlightable and they wont show up on Ctrl Shift. They will be static
    stuff. (Not that you don't already know) but in case joo forget



    Another idea. Can make the stone tables the white to match the rest of the area.

    Can make the stone tables the white to match the rest of the area.
    Also the tree can be decorated for christmas ;-)

    Thanks to Merik from ONN for reporting on this story. While we do have the convenient rune library immediately outside Luna proper, I agree that it might be helpful for players to have access to a runebook or something of that nature with current events and auctions. Perhaps a bookcase containing these runebooks along the south interior wall of the bank (the new shiny one with the books showing). I'll leave it up to Gareth to post a super awesome design as I'm at work with no access to my graphic design programs =(

    EDIT: Wow Gareth beat me to the punch! Loving that design!!

    This News has been approved by Mesanna. So were on track. SHOW UP TO THE MEETING!!!
  7. Why don't the Ems lock down runes to all the events they do. I am sure there would be more people there and more people makes more fun.

    Lady Pearl,

    I am sorry for the major delay. I am running behind on this due to my own misteak of not logging my journal correctly. I will try my hardest to have that information up today.

    Again I am really really sorry for this not being out yet.
    You can complain to my PR Rep Sebrina!!!! <--- HAHA
    *Hides from Sabrinas superior mage spells*

    The information I can think off hand and dont directly quote me.

    Is this rune section will be setup for EM events, Auction houses and player events.
    It will not include vendor homes. (If I remember correctly.)
