Thank you For the Donation #EQ2
Yesterday I logged into game and found 7 books waiting for me in my mailbox. No note attached, sent by one “Mctavish” – I sent back some coin and a thank you note for the donation, and that brings my player-written book collection up to 397 books. THREE books away from hitting my goal of 400. Hopefully beyond, as time goes on. Sadly the majority of my books at the moment are (for lack of a better word) indisposed. When I moved Stargrace back to the Antonia Bayle server her house failed to move with her, and so now I am in the process of once more bugging Customer Service for help in the matter. They’ve already confirmed that I will indeed get the house back (I was incredibly worried I would have lost all of those books) but it’s a matter of time and patience. Once I have the museum back up and running players are more than welcome to come visit and read the books that I’ve been collecting.
If you’re interested in making a donation (wouldn’t it be neat if a dev or two read this cough cough and sent a one of a kind book!) please feel free to mail stargrace on the antonia bayle server. If you need a blank book just let me know and I can send you one.
Once more it’s things like this that keep me playing a game. Friends, and the community. Random acts of kindness that cause me to pause and think “huh, that was very nice of them”, and make me want to keep playing.
On a side note – if you’re interested in the finer aspect of player housing, be sure to /join antonia_bayle.homeshow, it’s a cross server channel dedicated to all things housing related. There are also lessons taking place which you can find a schedule for on the EQ2 forums under the Norrathian Homeshow: here. It looks like they’re doing some fantastic lessons on how to use the layout editor for various things, so if you’ve got the time I would really recommend checking it out. There are some finer details about the program that really make using it a lot easier, like how to tweak settings and prevent some of the bugs from occurring (bugs like, everything flipping around every time you place it, which believe me is incredibly annoying). Hopefully others find it as helpful as I have found it to be.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
I can make books for you, but I don’t have any interest in actually writing in said books. . . . .
I don’t know why, because I know that you’ve been talking about the player written books, but for some reason, I thought someone sent 7 books anonymously to your RL address. Maybe someone who had been involved with secret santa. Then when I came to read the blog, I smacked myself on the head and went, “Oh duh! Player written!” :)
Either way, it’s still cool!
You may lose books, but do you lose your entire home? Because that’s what I am missing. =p
You know what? Everytime I move I ALWAYS lose books.
