Strange Things Happen

Thursday, February 28, 2008 by Bea

OK, now I get the definition of a "Blue Moon."
I was doing my server visits instead of factions visits nowadays, and during my levelling in Cervantes with a friend, my characters died and my scout, with zero HP was still standing. See the screenshot:

I was able to walk, and I thought it was lag, but yeah, my scout was still standing and walking without the HP. XD

Then, greeting the old members of CARNAGE, we had a very weird photoshoot:

In Carracci, my friends were not happy at first to see my name with an attachment of [CM]. (But GMs told me that [CM] was unique and cannot be used by anyone else! *cries*)
Anyway, they asked me alot of questions to prove my innocence~ *sobs* but sad to say, no, I cannot teleport to you my friends, because my additional name does not add any power to my account. XD

*Click for larger pic!*

and my apologies:

Well, my visit in Pachelbel is a bit quiet. I did got myself two mouse hats. ^^ And it's the first time I wasn't scared of rats - that is, just in-game. I also love the 1 pc. Karja's Box. Do buy one, I got a Sheep Hair Horn of femme Elementalist from it in Vivaldi. :D

Check out my side panel for the server visits. My hotspots in those servers are the ff:
Cervantes - City of Auch
Carracci - Port of Coimbra
Caravaggio - Cite de Reboldoeux
Pachelbel - Port of Coimbra
Vivaldi - Cite de Reboldoeux

and my In-Game Family name can now be PMed as [CM]Veya in ALL servers.

PS. I love weird stuff/happenings in-game. XD~

Aftermath: Victorian Valentine Event

Tuesday, February 19, 2008 by Bea

Crossposted to: GE Barracks: Pinoys' Bond of Trinity
I like I like when we whisper soft to each other

I like I like when we're quiet with one another
I like I like when we're nice, nice to each other
I like I like when we surely like one another
I like I like when we whisper soft to each other
I like I like when we're quiet with one another
I like I like when we're nice, nice to each other
I like I like when we surely like one another
lyrics from my video - Donora's Shhh

The venue was filled with the past culture of the Filipinos during Spanish colonial times. It smelled of flowers, antique furnitures, and soft perfume. The path that evening was truly pure cobblestones.

We arrived at 3PM for preparations. It was a bit cloudy at first, and we were scared that it might rain (yes, the venue was open area). We had everything on our table spread - the GVC promo, merchandise, the GE box (bundled with bear packages and item of the month (bellem box), and other activities like free v2.4 DVD installers and posters. All they have to do is register. The P750 GVC went sold out in a few minutes, and lots of players bought P100 denomination as well (for the Adelina's booty). Good thing our lovely Mistress Hrin provided me lots of Item of the Month codes, or else, that would've been sold out too! XD~

The event started by the organizers: HolyGround. They had a host (I forgot his name), Ranulf, and a lovely lady by his side (which I also forgot her name). They had planned activities as well, like the poetry reading, sword fighting, Lord & Lady of the ball, etc. We also had a few spiels, along with the other sponsors as well. The other booths were nice, especially Cath's of FreeKiss. I tried to bid during one of her auction of a black hat, but I was outbid. Y_Y Oh well, at least I got to buy a white choker from her booth. ^^

There were lots of lovely ladies and handsome gentlemen in Victorian-inspired outfits, some even cosplayed Granado Espada characters as well.

My dear congratulations to Deniva & Lim for being our Baron & Baroness for Granado Espada~

More pictures are posted here: VV Photos @ multiply

Thank you for the warm support! Till next event! ^_~

CMs doesn't have the power to fix your bug reports. So I'll be teaching you guys how to report, and hopefully have your 'bugs' fixed. ^^

Duration: 45 Minutes ~ 1 hour

Background Story:
Once upon a time, in a land not so faraway, 5 [GM]s were arguing amongst themselves about who was the fairest of them all. Unable to come to any conclusion, they decided... that they would let the people of Granado Espada make that choice!

Event Mechanics:
5 [GM]s will be campaigning for votes between 4 February 2008 - 13 February 2008. They will be interacting with players on their very own forum thread and going around in-game during the week to gain support and votes from the players.

GM Selva
GM Aimee
GM Eulalie
GM Eciney
GM Lorenza

All 5 [GM]s will be present at the same time on 13 February 2008, Wednesday to gather the last of the votes in the Final Showdown Session.

Players can vote for the [GM] of their choice by giving them Heart Chocolates, which can be purchased from the premium item merchant or market manager (while stocks last). Each Heart Chocolate counts as one vote for that [GM]. In return, for every Heart Chocolate given to the [GM], the player will receive a Heart Spray from the [GM].

To further support their favourite [GM], players can also thwart the votes of other [GM]s by giving them Broken Heart Chocolates which can also be purchased from the premium item merchant or market managers (while stocks last). Broken Heart Chocolates will subtract one vote from the [GM] that has received it!

The top voter of each [GM] wins a 2 hour ‘date’ with the [GM] whereby the [GM] will accompany him/ her around Granado Espada and give him special VIP treatment e.g Hrin's Touch buffs and ressurection, as well as take him on a special tour into unseen territory!

The top 5 voters of each [GM] will receive a Cumulonimbus Shield with special option of +2 DR.

For the top voter of the Fairest [GM] who has won the most votes, he/she will receive a Le Blanc of his/her choice with special option of +3 DR.

Fairest [GM]'s Top Supporter Wins a Le Blanc +3DR of His/Her Choice!

Event FAQ:
Q: Can everyone take part in this event?
Yes, everyone can take part in this event.

Q: Do we need to register for the event?
No, registration is not necessary.

Q: Do we need a Squad to take part in this event?
No, you do not need to be in a squad.

Q: [GM] XXXX! I am having XXXX problems with my GE client!
The above [GM]s are purely Event [GM]s. They have no knowledge of any technical issues and do not have access to game account information. Please do not harrass them with questions pertaining to game bugs, account issues etc. Harrassment or insults will result in forum account suspension or banning of account.
Having said that, yes, you can tell them your personal problems that are unrelated to GE and let them play Aunt Agony to you.

Q: What do I need in order to participate?
You will need heart chocolates or broken heart chocolates for this event. They can be purchased from the Premium Item Merchant at all major cities or via Market Manager (while stocks last). Heart Chocolates cost 50 G-Points while Broken Heart Chocolates cost 100 G-Points.
Heart Chocolate: 50 GPoints
Broken Heart Chocolate: 100 GPoints

Q: How do I give my votes (Heart Chocolates) or demerit votes (Broken Heart Chocolate) to the various [GM]s?
Each [GM] will announce in their own thread the various timings that they will be in each server throughout the week to gather votes. Once they are in the server, they will make a server-wide announcement in regard to their location. Players can then approach them to give them their votes or demerit vote.

Q: How do I win the event?
You will receive a Heartspray for every vote (Heart Chocolate) given. Demerit voters will not receive anything.
The top voter of each [GM] wins a 2 hour ‘date’ with the [GM] whereby the [GM] will accompany him/ her around Granado Espada and give him special VIP treatment e.g Hrin's Touch buffs and ressurection, as well as take him on a special tour into unseen territory!
The top 5 voters of each [GM] will receive a Cumulonimbus Shield with special option of +2 DR.
For the top voter of the Fairest [GM] who has won the most votes, he/she will receive a Le Blanc of his/her choice with special option of +3 DR.

Q: Who is the Fairest [GM]?
The fairest [GM] is the [GM] who wins the most votes (chocolate hearts) amongst all the [GM]s.

Q: If I am the top voter and I won the date with the [GM], when will our 'date' be?
You will arrange a timing with the [GM] you have voted for. It has to be within the timeframe of 14 February 2008-21 February 2008, otherwise the date will be forfeited. If you arranged a date and timing with the [GM] and you failed to turn up, your date will be forfeited as well.

Q: Can I win more than one date with the [GM]?
No, you can only win one date with one of the [GM]s. If you happen to be the highest voter for more than 1 [GM], then we will choose which [GM] you can go on the date with.

Q. What will happen to those who disrupt the event with microphones and such?
Those who disrupt the event will be silenced for the rest of the event.
