Events

Postby Yarash » Tue Jan 03, 2006 12:40 pm

I'd like to suggest that some events be held throughout the year...other than rp and holiday events (which are great). I offer several suggestions, and if anyone else has ideas, feel free to weigh in.

1) Staff run quests, with real (eq) rewards. Players chat with mobs, figure out a quest, fight a big battle or two, and get a prize.

2) Invasions. You load a bunch of mobs somewhere, and some of them might have some sort of hidden goodies. Maybe have a boss mob/fight. Note that this is different from jot/muspel invasions in that it is a one-time deal, and would (or should) be of a variety of level ranges.

3) Trivia. (game knowledge, general knowledge, tv/movies, etc) Preferrably this would be run by the staff, but hey, anybody could do it.

4) Some sort of lottery maybe.

5) Staff run arena fights. 1 on 1 between a bunch of players, eventually leading to a champion. It could be an annual event and there could be a plaque listing the champion for each year. There could even be two sets of fights for good/evilrace, and the champion from each fights each other. It could be made further interesting by having staff run betting, where players can bet on who they think will win each fight.

6) There could be staff run arena fights with player vs mob fights as well, also with betting.

Yarash??

Did you play in the games Sotana, Ashiwi and I ran???

Half of the stuff you listed actually was part of it.

*shrug* I guess what I'm trying to say is staff doesn't have to do all the work, though we had considerable help.

Yes.
Please load/code more invasions about the game, especially mass numbers of very low level mobs, not necessarily with any useful eq.
Sedawi, Scardale, HP, IC, South WD, Mir Forest, BG, BGR, SSC, SS, Longhollow, SG etc etc should all have some random possibility of some low-medium level invasion.

Let's see hoards of very low level goblins streaming into the WD tunnels etc. more often!

A good chance of *some* invasion happening in some area of the realms would promote more exploration/frequent checking of certain areas that otherwise may be rarely visited by any pchar.

On certain (medium-lvl?) mobs in invasions, load some useful eq, such as some nice ansi ac1 lit ammo belt, or the odd !stat badge, or some wt0 potions etc.

This is true, and an excellent point. And I completely forgot about your games at the time of the posting, sorry about that :) Events like that are very good for the mud.

Lilira, Sotana and I apparently run a MEAN game of Toril Trivial Pursuit.

What room description contains the word "the"?


Yes... it was quite mean... if by mean you mean "overly obscure". :D

There were plenty of good questions mixed in with those however :)
Danahg tells you 'yeah, luckily i kept most of it in my mouth and nasal membranes, ugh'

Dlur group-says 'I have a dead horse that I'm dragging down the shaft with my 4 corpses. Anyone want to help me beat it?'
