    Rares Festival Opening Ceremony

    The Rares Festival was officially open on Friday, January 28th by the Rares Festival hosts Lineman and Lord Gareth. A copy of the speech given by Lord Gareth at the ceremony has been provided to us.

    "On behalf of the Chesapeake community I would like to welcome you all to the first Rares Festival of 2011 here on the Chesapeake shard! We hope you have enjoyed the Pre Festival week and are ready to be entertained, killed by harbingers and buy items for 60million gold only to find the same items for 5million gold three vendors down.

    We have many returning faces to our staff this year such as Sundina and Demon Slayer who are once again running the wonderful auction house, secured and created by Lineman. You won’t find many people in this world that you can trust like this and we are fortunate to have them here with us, along with WildStar, Sheila and Mirt have been working hard on the vendor malls. They have been staying up way too late doing rentals and making sure all the vendor wares are “up to code/hue” and everything is running smoothly. Little shout out to WildStar for doing 400 raffle books….because you know my lazy ars wasn’t going to do it.

    Lineman and I are your hosts along with the Ethereal Void Imperium Community, here in the great township of Merxmere. We would like to thank the townships founder, Gunga Din for all of his help during Rares Fest and bringing Merxmere from a one building outpost to a full merchant township with all of the wonder that you see here today.
