Find Ecgric in Stormreach and you could win 500 Turbine Points.

I have 5 codes to give away worth 500 Turbine Points each.

Location: Throughout public areas of Stormreach (always in instance 1)
Date: 22-Feb-2014
Time: 4:00 PM
Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time
Server: Orien
Details:
To participate, you must /joinchannel FindEcgric. Clues will be provided during the event. These will be hints about locations in Stormreach & items found in the game. I will be hiding somewhere in a public area of Stormreach (always in instance 1). I will provide some clues as to where I am located & what you must trade to me. Don't worry, these will be simple to find items that are very inexpensive, mostly collectibles. Be the first to locate me, open a trade window & provide me with the item indicated by the clue to win. I will change to a new character after each code is given out. A list of characters is provided below.
As a bonus to anyone who also plays LOTRO, I will giving away 3 codes for a free in-game title, "The Well Met". These will be given to the first 3 people that find me & request them.
Limit one Turbine Point code per character.
This is open to all players, regardless of having a Free, Premium or VIP account. The event will last until all 5 codes are given out.

Good luck everyone! I am glad people in the community still go out of their way to run these kind of events! Have you always had characters on Orien ecgric?

I started on Orien, but tried some other servers for a couple of years. I'm now back on Orien and plan to stay.

BTW: Even those people not on Orien regularly are welcome to join for this. All my hiding locations can be accessed by a level 1 character & all the items that I am asking for can be found in low level quests. Roll up a new character if you have to & come join us.

This sounds like fun. If I am free by then, I will roll up a new toon and join the hunt.

My dream last night involved this - sort of - except it people at my school, being run by my science/math teacher, and we had to find stuff like transformers in our city o_0

And so on that note, my sister and I look forward to this event!!!

Many thanks to both Ecgric for organizing the event, and to Cordovan for providing the prizes. I especially like the combination of requiring a specific item (with a little trivia) along with the hunt!

Can't wait for the next event! (maybe my luck will improve...)

The contest was a good idea. It felt very fixed though. Why not get the 5 winners together for a screen shot or would this be to hard as it appears they might all be the same account ?

Acrisius,
I'm glad you enjoyed the event. This was the first DDO event I ever hosted and I learned a lot in doing it. I would like to host more, but I'm not sure when. This one came about because Jerry gave me the some point codes & I wanted to share them. I'll have to think of some ideas for future events.

DefecTalisman,
I'm sorry, I didn't think to ask the winners to stay for a screen shot afterwards. That would have been nice. I'll have to remember to do that if I host another event. As you point out, it is possible that more than one character could have been from the same account. I don't know of a way to determine what characters belong to an account, that is why I limited this to one per character.
