    I hope you will reconsider your blatant disregard for not just gnomes but any sentient being getting used for the entertainment of others. It is bad enough that gnomes all over the world are being used to stand watch over peoples lawns without any consideration to how they feel, being forced by advertisers to promote travel to places gnomes have no interest in visiting..... not to mention being forced to stand in gardens 24/7 the world over.

    We at the NAAGP (National Association for the Advancement of Gnomish People) condemn this and any other behavior that cheapens the value of gnomes in modern gameplay society

    Speaking as someone who is only logging in for the Anniversary event double bonus points doesnt interest me but triple points would have done.

    I did want to also add that this thread would be a great place for folks to publicize their own happenings in-game or in the community. If you're doing a special podcast, livestream, trivia event, real-life gathering for buffs, etc. this weekend...let people know about it here!
    Have fun, and don't forget to gather for buffs!

    A special anniverssary Tin Foil cosmetic hat would be great if we could put festival stuff on it. But make the hat unique and they can sell a different version in the store.

    No one in the world ever gets what they want

    Everybody dies frustrated and sad
    And that is beautiful

    In order to access the secret racetrack I believe you have to be wearing any boots with a ruby augment in them, then click your heels together three times, and say "There's no race like Gnome".

    (...sorry...)

    I don't necessarily think we needed 3X points, but I'm more than a little surprised that the 10th anniversary event doesn't seem to actually have any actual sales. As in, there are no items in the store that are being sold at X% off, or even a determine your discount sale. I figured that would have been a given, and I'm pretty bummed to see it isn't the case. Already expensive stuff like boxes and +7 tomes being made available for the whales to whale out on even more doesn't really hold quite as much appeal to the rest of us.

    Edit: I spoke too soon! There is a 25% adventure pack sale. Good stuff!

    the birthday cake gives you one choice of several old raid items - such as pinion, marilith chain, and madstone boots
    main toons: hauteur(silly caster) Sttomper (silly barbarian)-jammiee (Silly paladin)

    Awesome and Thank you! (I've been missing the last several CC events because I was in the middle of a TR and couldn't get into the higher instances)>

    Happy Anniversary and what a ride!

    I first came to DDO when I heard that Middle Earth Online was going to be using the same game engine and as a Dungeon Master from the days of (basic) D&D I wanted to check ddo out . The game was packaged by ATARI (iirc) and I played right up until I was accepted into the LOTRO beta which led me to become a founding Lifetime member there. (I believe LOTRO is two years behind DDO so I did get almost a year into DDO).
    My original character was lost, and the email I had used for it discontinued, but like the cat, I kept coming back. I created a new account shortly after the Shroud was released. I've been here on and off ever since, mostly on.

    The Harbor tokens to advance in level and gain access to the upper Harbor... Zin was such a stickler. And I do remember getting stuck in the Market tent and having to get a GM to unstick me.

    I remember the very first time I was in the Shroud and a member of the raid said they needed a large devil scale. I pulled one, and being my first time was a long way away from making my first GS so I offered it to him.
    I got blasted so hard by everyone for not putting it up for /roll I was stunned. (Thankfully don't run into that as much anymore and the Legendary groups I've been fortunate to join have been awesome!)

    Anyways I thank you all for the effort you've all put into this and though you don't often see good reviews on these forums there are many of us out there who do appreciate all your effort!

    *Throws confetti into the air and clogs up his cooling fans* (oh oh...)

    World traveler: Since my first journey into Dereth I have ventured into new and exciting realms, Eberron, Faerun and Arda are to but name a few.The road goes ever on.

    On the contrary, I see organized Gnome racing as proof that the shorter among us can overcome their lesser stride length (presumably through Jump potions and Haste/Striding/Speed), thereby proclaiming the glory of Gnomes!

    Yep, and it was the advertising blitz following FTP that somehow found me. I joined in late 2009 - Oct or Nov. Went VIP by early 2010.

    Good point, and it doesn't cause lag. Besides I can always use that 200xp.
