    Lightbulb MARCHING ORDERS! - SATURDAY 28th March - 18:00 GMT

    Howdy!

    Firstly, on behalf of my fellow officers and our glorious guild leader, thank you very much to all those folks who came to Orrient Express Saturday - along with our Silverwastes runs and ad hoc events that have been taking place over the past few weeks.

    Secondly, you'll remember after the end of the huge Battle of the Five Armies, we threw around the idea of having an event centered around each of the three orders of Tyria: Priory, Vigil and Whispers. Since then, steps have been taken behind the scenes by some keen folks to put a plan in place. As plans begin to solidify, I thought it appropriate to share them with the rest of the guild and, soon, the world.

    So here it is: You pick an order, you travel to their relevant base, once there, you contact the person responsible for taxis and get into the right map instance. The three armies set out at the same time, completing tasks around Tyria to prove their worth.

    What tasks? Well, killing dragons, completing specific events, jumping puzzles, solving riddles and speaking to the right people. Specifics and timings will be shared in this thread (particularly this post) but understand that some elements will be kept secret to those volunteering to play certain roles in the event, as you'll see.

    The end of the evening will culminate in us all descending on the Silverwastes, likely to kill the Vinewrath in combined zergs over multiple overflow maps. Quite the riot.

    Vlupius has kindly drawn up a proposal for the routes each order take:



    Looks busy, but by restricting the number of objectives each order completes in each zone will ensure that momentum is maintained (and it doesn't take all night).

    So, what do we need?

    Primarily, a time and date. 18:00 GMT seemed to work well last time for Battle... and so I am proposing we keep it this time. The date is trickier; I want to say Saturday 28th March, as that gives us time to promote it at Foostival. That's a long way away... but how does it work for everyone?

    What else?

    Monkey has already taken strides to rally the officers to command the zergs, but we still need to lock in positions for each of the orders. Keeping with the theme of three, I suggest each order has a leader, deputy and assistant. You can volunteer for any position, just remember that you need a character that's attuned to the relevant order through their personal story.

    Leaders and deputies will be providing the steer on their armies, whereas assistants are the lucky folk who get to be bombarded with whispers for taxis as the time ticks towards the event's start.

    The following will be completed as people volunteer in the thread:

    Priory

    Leader: Hawksbane
    Deputy: Vlupius (Vlupius Primus)
    Assistant: Saphnabylni

    Vigil

    Leader: Tweetiti
    Deputy: Yargh
    Assistant: weevil (Biscuit Weevil)

    Whispers

    Leader: Monkey (Monksbane)
    Deputy: Salix (Exigua)
    Assistant: Ravbek (Cybek)
    Back Up: Jondare (Malefice Jondaren)

    We also need general volunteers for special tasks outside of the zergs. People to give directions and issue riddles, amongst other secret things.

    Volunteers

    RebelMaren for all orders with his army of alts.

    Streamers & Recorders

    Potentially weevil (although also an assistant for Whispers).
    Raujinn for the Vigil.
    Spirit for Priory and/or all zergs.

    Any thoughts!?

    Post them below. Let me know general thoughts, if you'd like to get involved in organisation and so on.

    I can bring biscuit as the vigil assistant (the attraction of the craziest route). Can do any order if you need spares though.

    I'll be a volunteer or an assistant if needed, or I could rally the Relics [RO]boats on NA servers, if you're interested in taking that direction. Either way let me know what I can do to help!

    and that leaves Priory, so Hawks will be leading a zerg, quite looking forward to that route too.

    Exi is whispers and could possibly do something somewhere. Someone with a mic might be a better choice as deputy though.

    Updated the OP folks, cheers for volunteering so far.

    I'll need the specific character names, especially if you're an assistant, as folks will need to whisper you for taxis.

    Spirit: Hmmmmmm, I shall have a think. As this event has a lot more complexity to it already, I'd like to treat this as a pilot first.

    Vlupius Primus is an excellent scholar and would be more than happy to act as Priory deputy.
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    random thought for your consideration. you could have 3 people stream it one for each order/route , does'nt need to be the route leaders just people with stable reasonable fast connections.

    Would gladly have Ex as a deputy - his typing skills while doing moving/fighting are 2nd to none. Only saph and he can keep up a 3 way convo while doing lupi. That I can talk enough for both of us is fine Plus two necros leading!

    OK, that works. I also know from experience that Salix is exceptional at typing, so you have a deputy Monkey.

    Jondare, I have added you as the assistant for Whispers in that case.

    Those slots have filled up quickly, excellent!

    Aye, we've had lots of folks both stream and record events in the past. Personally, I appreciate any of either: Streaming helps raise the profile and recordings serve as nice memories, especially if they include TeamSpeak chatter. I still absolutely adore this magical shot that Spirit captured last time at Battle... and I would actually appreciate more smaller vignettes like that in future (opposed to 20-minute constant streams), if our video capturers are so inclined.
