Reminder: Special Event Tomorrow (2/23) at 7pm PST

Hi friends,

Just posting a reminder that Sonoma has the honor of hosting EM Ulric’s first event tomorrow, 2/23 at 7pm PST. EM Ulric will be Chessy’s new EM, and he has something exciting planned for all of us.

We will meet at our normal spot at the war room in Serpent’s Hold. This is considered an RBG event and points for attendance will be awarded.

 

Scavenger Hunt, Reward Hall Grand Re-Opening, and Special Event!

Hello friends,

Three updates for February, that I hope you’ll be excited about!

First off, the EM Reward Hall has been redesigned and is reopened! Go check it out. The new design allows room for expansion and has a generally more cohesive layout (fewer things scattered around the floor). The book shelves have books in them from past events for your reading pleasure, and there is plenty of wall space for new reward plaques.

To celebrate the reopening of the reward hall, I’ll be hosting a scavenger hunt with five winners! Each winner will receive a special plaque in the reward hall to commemorate the redesign of the hall. All those that wish to participate please meet at the Reward Hall on Friday, 2/17 @ 7pm PST.

Also, on Thursday, 2/23 @ 7pm, I have a special EM event for you. I can’t give any more info at this time, but mark your calendars. *evil grin*

February has become quite a full month, so here’s your updated calendar of events:

  • 2/12: Sunday @ 7pm PST: Governors Meeting
  • 2/15: Wednesday @ 7pm PST: EM Event: Distilled Spirits
  • 2/17: Friday @ 7pm PST: Scavenger Hunt & Reward Hall Grand Reopening Party
  • 2/22: Wednesday @ 7pm PST: EM Event: Alchemical Energy Part IV: The Guardians
  • 2/23: Special Event @ 7pm PST *Date and time subject to change*
  • 2/28: Tuesday @ 6pm PST: Town Hall
  • 2/28: Tuesday @ 7pm PST: Paragon Dungeon Crawl
  • 2/28: Tuesday @ Midnight PST: Fishing Challenge Deadline

Happy travels!

February’s Event Schedule

Hello friends,

Apologies for the late update. It’s already the 3rd, and I don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun in store for February!

We did quite a bit in January: two dungeon crawls… one gruesome one, and another that was a bit more gentle. We discovered the town of darkness, which brings us mid-point in the alchemy arc. And we kicked off the reinstatement of the RBG with day 1 of training.

For February, we will again pay a visit to the darkness, bringing us one step closer to closing the alchemical rift between dimensions for good. Also, a whiskey distillery has opened on the north island of Jhelom! The carpenter-turned-distiller found a market of thirsty warriors for his tasty spirits. Drinks on the house on the 15th of the month!

Here’s your February event lineup:

  • 2/12: Sunday @ 7pm PST: Governors Meeting
  • 2/15: Wednesday @ 7pm PST: EM Event: Distilled Spirits
  • 2/22: Wednesday @ 7pm PST: EM Event: Alchemical Energy Part IV: The Guardians
  • 2/28: Tuesday @ 6pm PST: Town Hall
  • 2/28: Tuesday @ 7pm PST: Paragon Dungeon Crawl
  • 2/28: Tuesday @ Midnight PST: Fishing Challenge Deadline
  • TBD: Reward Hall Grand Re-Opening

A few announcements: I have yet to redo the reward hall, and I’m falling into the same bad habit as past EMs and just tossing event nostalgia on the floor. I wanted to roll out the dark town for you guys and didn’t have time to complete both that and the reward hall. I’ll plan on redoing it this month and will announce a grand re-opening event, once completed. I’ll set the house to private while I redo the inside, but expect a hall that’s a bit more organized.

Event Attendace Books: I will post when attendance books are ready. I realized it’s easier for me to do all books for the month at once at the end of the month. They will be out front of the Hall of Commons when ready.

Royal Britannian Guard: I’ve modified the marks awarded to accommodate those that can’t be at every combat event. Dungeon crawls, other “mini” events, and the governors meeting will all count as 5 points – same as combat EM events. I’ll be updating that post (and making it a sticky in the nav bar).

As always, feel free to email me at emChimaera@gmail.com with any questions/comments!

February’s Fishing Challenge Fish is… The Fairy Salmon!
