Hail Citizens of Stormreach!

It has been brought to our attention that foul weather has been persisting in the region, and citizens have expressed concern that this may delay or cancel the Stormreach Rebirth Celebration. There have also been rumors that something is amiss in the city, which also may threaten the party. Please be assured that the Coin Lords have taken every precaution to ensure the party will take place as planned. Extra security will be on hand to assist citizens, thanks to the support of the Twelve. Citizens may now enjoy their cakes as promised, and should still plan on attending the celebration party on Sul, Therendor 2nd (Sunday, March 2nd). This will be a celebration never to be forgotten, and we hope to see you there!

If you say so Sir. It is rather dark and gloomy out. There is a feeling of foreboding in the air as if something vast and mysterious is coming to Stormreach.

The cake was quite tasty though, got any more? :)

Any attack made by the Devils against Stormreach would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. Stormreach is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it.

Now now, calm yourselves good citizens. The sightings are most assuredly just lightening from the storm.

Those who can't make it to the kick off of the festival on the 2nd, I assure you that the 2nd is only the beginning of the festivities for the week.

Well the festival will be going on all day on the 2nd, but the evening is typically when most patrons find time to stop by. It might be the best time around then since there will be so many more party goers then. But even if you miss the start of the party, the rest of the week will still have festive activities

Edit: Oh and uh, vast & mysterious >> *runs away*

Don't worry. Sir and I took care to make sure that party festivities will be going off multiple times, and some things for the party will linger, so even if you're not there right when the party activity starts, you can log in later to still catch it :) I know you all have gotten used to us saying "show up at X time for an hour on X server" and we've heard a lot of feed back saying that narrow window makes it too rough on folks to participate, so we're trying something a little different this time.

I think It´s the 13th eclipse, Ive seen the moons show in the Market, Harbor etc. It´s gonna be fun for mages, but I, Elbandor the Ranger cannot use any attack spells... Anyways, I would like to fight monsters in the Marketplace. DDO team, it would be nice to have more live events more often, and of this kind, so the gamers can enjoy the game further. Also, the spells you can use in market; can you make em always usuable in all stormreach? It´s fun to use em. :D

Terrah looks away after reading the announcement and then begins to walk back out of the marketplace. She sniffs under her breath and shakes her head.
Muckka standing next to her says "What?!"
Terrah turns back.
"A celebration is fine I say. Just bring the ale, but dont count on me showing up without my sword. You know Muckka, You remember what we found after the abbot was defeated. He's still around, even if he hasn't show his face. He's still here."
Muckka "Oh lighten up, they said they would have security.."
"The same security that asked us to deal with the evil wizard, the same security that asks us to save stormreach when it is in peril? The same security that allowed a lich to try to make himself a god? Or perhaps we should ask the Twelve, oh yes, they allowed another plane to invade our world, I'm sure they are more than capable of dealing with any threat that should come upon us." Terrah growled.
Muckka opened her mouth again but Terrah raised her hand.
"Dont worry, i am going. I am not some shrude warrior unfamiliar with the drink. Afterall, you should know that better than I my friend. I like to dance and take back the pints with the best of them. I'm sure it will be fun. there will be singing, there will be dancing, and there will be celebration." She said with a smile.
Terrah turned away satisfied that she had eased her friends mind for now.
As she walked there was one final thought. "And there will be blood."

Stormreach Rebirth Celebration.

This whole "Rebirth" thing has me creeped out.

Maybe we'll all have to convert to 4th Edition.

Maybe thats the Horrible Doom that Velah forsaw.

Maybe every time somebody eats a cake it brings Stormreach a little closer to Vast and Mysterious destruction.

Maybe its time for my meds.

Yajerman01
02-27-2008, 04:19 PM
well there are really only two quotes you need to remeber, albeit, ill give the noted Tombstone lines their due respect.

First, if there are any true souls in here with an ounce of dignity, you would agree that the following lines are immortal above any:

Dennis: Well how'd you become king then?
[Angelic music plays... ]

King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.

Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Secondly, Now if your still with me, anyone who is married, silently agreed with this line from the Terminator, (dont lie):


"It can't be bargained with! It can't be reasoned with! It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!"

Suffice to say, I call my wife "T"

To the Lobster no less!


[Begins equipping Blue Dragon Scale Docent, Amulet of the Stormreaver, Gr Lightning Prot item. Begins casting Resist Electricity, Prot Energy: Electricity, Globe of Invunerbility, Otto's Irrestable Dance....]

Why nothing to worry about fellow citizen. Just, getting ready for the dance part of the celebration, it's electric! Move along move along....yes yes, that IS an interesting glyph on the harbor Giles, not seen since the LAST great civilization here...yes I hope it doesn't rain too.....

You just listen to the ol' Pork Chop Express an' take his advice on a dark and stormy night when some wild-eyed eight-foot tall maniac grabs your neck an' taps the back of your favorite head up against a barroom wall. An' he looks you crooked in the eye an' he asks if you've paid your dues. You look right back at that big sucker an' remember what Jack Burton always says at times like that. "Have
you paid your dues, Jack" "No, sir, I've just charged 'em." Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, "Give me your best shot. I can take it.

Storm or not, we'll celebrate. I wouldn't put it past the defeated Pit Fiend to work through his minions to attempt some ill fated invasion of Stormreach. Have a good time, but stay alert. If portals start popping up in Stormreach I think killing some Devils will just add to the celebration.

INT 14 - 6 pts
WIS 8 - 0 pts duels, chasing bandits while on deathbed
CHR 14 - 6 pts - bluff (cards), intimidate (obvious one), just being really cool

Take feats enhancements for crossbows

Anyone else got any ideas?

To me, personally, events like this help me to become a part of Stormreach, not just in it. I've always wanted more engaging story lines in DDO, wouldn't it be great if NPCs respond to you differently after you partake in the festival?

Oh, and if DDO could ever bring over the Beer Drinking run from LOTRO, that's one cross-development feature I would really welcome. Festivals would be a great time for it !!!

Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a portal that you *just* catch out of the corner of your eye over by the Rusty Nail? Every time I come down the stairs or come out of Gianthold, I see it, but turn to face it and it vanishes into thin air!

Prophecy of Vesuvia:

With the weather and the markings one can only assume that danger is immenient. Perhaps the folks within the marketplace tent felt the same way as they have began leaving it. The marketplace will forever be changed on this day, as I believe the tent will be destroyed by some massive object to replace it! Portals will open! Devils will slay the children of Stormreach until they are finally surpressed as we are left to ponder on what has arrived!

There's no "evil forces coming to rain down terror on us" it's a tropical storm, perfectly normal for this area...and the only rain of anything down on anybody I've seen is of hams. As I've already said, this tropical storm is really obscuring visibility, and the airships can't get good clearance to land at the spire. You all have seen Obscuring Mist, how much worse do you think a whole sky full of the stuff is?
There's no "mysterious lights" it's just lightening and spell effects... have you seen how many of you there are out there flinging magic left and right?
There's no "invasions"...the only invasion of anything I've seen is the invasion of the tasty ham snatchers... and we already suspect that to be the merchants who are hard on their luck out being ham burglers
There's no "marking of DOOOOOOOOM" it's just vandal graffiti to scare people, which it looks like they accomplished that goal pretty well

now stop all of this nonsense and fear mongering! Get a hold of yourselves! You're letting the misfits and conspiracy theorists ruin the fun and spook you. Since when do the heroes of Stormreach quake at the sight of some clouds, blinky lights, and orange paint? Now confound it, we are going to have FUN!

I have grown (not sure if 'grown' is the right word) partial to 2Kings2:23. [run a search in the link]

I suppose it shows how the meek will inherit the earth, if that’s all right with the rest of you.

The fact that it contains the answer to the life, the universe and everything is coincidental...

23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.

Sir Lawrence, I think you need to throw out some props to your brave street performers. While all the merchants were cowering in fear and heading for higher ground, the street performers were braving the elements and continuing in their mission to entertain the masses. The most impressive part is, they do all this to entertain us, and they don't accept tips!
