I love how this event has been so whole-heartedly supported by SOE. I hope I can catch up on some of the events before it wraps up tomorrow and I'm sad I missed the high-dive :(

It's great to see such an embracing of the roleplay community, and look forward to being able to see some of these large scale events!

I'm so happy to have read this article. The player's who set aside time and make effort to pull this series of events off are certainly an example of what distinguishes MMO communities. I agree that steady support of the planner's via SOE brings home that role-playing remains a cornerstone of the Everquest franchise. Something not to be lost as SOE continues its development toward Everquest Next.

With regard to the article's specifics, it's been my own experience that the planner's actually have the art of in-game heraldry honed to fit the environment. You can read more about this in their cross-posted FAQ.

While heraldry may not be 24/7, I'm fairly confident of experiencing player heralds, who periodically let player's know what is happening in the Commonlands zone. And about the existence of the /Festival channel. I encourage any player's with a character on Antonia Bayle server to make time for some of the closing days events. You won't be sorry.

Wonderful article as always, MJ. My hat's off to SOE for supporting player generated content, and of course to the roleplayers that put this together. My only regret is missing out on the majority of the events, though I did manage to catch the very tail end of one late last night. Good times.
