Avlis 15th Anniversary Weekend Schedule & RSVP

Post by The Avlissian » Wed Jun 21, 2017 6:07 am

HEAR YE, HEAR YE! The Avlis 15th Anniversary Weekend is set for July 7-9 - that’s just two and a half weeks away!

Our DMs are busy hatching schemes to keep you awake far beyond your bedtimes, but we need more than just DMs to make this event a success. We need you!

Because you’ve got a keen and discerning eye, you’ve no doubt noticed that the events listed on the schedule above are nothing but silly placeholders and aren’t the least bit real. Placeholders make us sad. But thankfully, placeholders don’t stick around for long! They’re meant to be … replaced. With better stuff.

That’s where you come in. We need your ideas. Whether it’s a sea expedition, dungeon crawl, fortune telling, trust lecture, pop-up store, sermon, pit fight, pub crawl, dance party, craft-fest, mini-market, cyberorgy, poetry slam, or just a good ol' conclave of evil… go on, get nuts, let's hear it! All you gotta do is:
  • reply to this (OOC) post with your proposed event name, server, location, and GMT time (any time is fine; the slots on the schedule are merely suggestions)
  • make an IC post announcing your event

AND, if you ACT NOW - or at least before June 30th - we will feature YOUR EVENT in the next edition of The Avlissian Newsletter! That's right: over 1,000 Avlissian subscribers will drool over our lovingly crafted marketing copy describing YOUR EVENT in great detail, which practically guarantees you a terrific turnout.*

We’ll periodically update the calendar with real events as people propose them. DMs will also be adding their events as well. And hey - Anniversary Weekend's just the start! We're gonna be partying ALL MONTH LONG! So stay tuned...

Weather permitting, my pony and I have a competition scheduled that weekend so I will not take up any of the schedule on that weekend with anything. If the weather turns bad and the competition is canceled, I might try to slide into a spot with a FEATing, O.K.Crafting, or- if I get in touch with Cam fast enough- an Ice Turtle outing. Otherwise, look for those events to happen later in the month.

I will also schedule the monthly Shem and OoO meeting later in July.
I think it needs salt.

Friday, July 7, 6:00 PM Mountain (5 PST-8 EST) (I believe 1200 AM GMT) I would like to do a Party at Burnham's on the Mikona server.
IC posting to come later today.

If we are doing more weekends for this 15 Year Anniversary, I'd rather do Saturday July 16 for the tasting party. It's much better for working around my other family commitments. Someone let me know if this is an option, please.

I know party events aren't everyone's cup of tea, so I'll throw this one into the mix and see what happens.

What: Undead crump
Where: Elysia, either Crypts or the Forest of Midnight, depending on the turnout
When: Saturday 7PM CET
Who: Everyone is welcome! Undead hunters preferred :)

The only party going on here is the one you'll need to be in to get all the sweet sweet XP! :jg:

Just to be clear: the schedule attached to this thread is for the Anniversary Weekend (July 7-9). We're trying to fill this weekend with events to kick off Anniversary Month (July) in style. You can propose to have an event any time during the month, of course. Be aware that the weekend of July 22-23 is tentatively scheduled to be Guild Weekend.

I could ask this in the private topic we have for this kind of discussion, but you've made it public with no discussion, so... what can we expect for responsibilities as members/leaders of inactive guilds?

I'm all for guild revival and nostalgia, but the player totals don't really support it in most cases (also mentioned in the private forum). We tried with a few things, including Trade Fair event themes and so on.

I just wanted to mention here that the time you've listed for the undead crump on the overview is wrong - it's 7pm CET (Europe timezone) on the Saturday.

July postings for the Opportunity Knocks crafting study group, Open FEATing, Shemathen guild meeting, and OoO guild meeting have been added to the calendar.

Ice Turtles are penciled in until Cam checks in.

Cheers.

:: Please move Rockfall events to the second weekends plans >.<; One day my manager will be able to NOT change a schedule at the last possible second, but hell will very likely freeze over first.

The calendar says that the ACE Event is 8:00 pm UK (GMT). :shock:

Unfortunately, UK is currently on GMT+1 thanks to curse of DST :cry:

I will be online at 8:00 pm UK Time, i.e. 7:00 pm GMT. Hope that makes sense :prost:
