Giant Guild Hall!

Having re-upped for Station Access, I got out Reynaldo Fabulous to see what was happening on the Guk server.

I am a junior associate stand-by reserve member of Jaye’s Revelry and Honor guild on Guk, which is celebrating an anniversary tomorrow, so I thought I would check in at the guild hall.

And when call of the guild hall finished, I found myself in a much bigger guild hall than I remember.

Looking in from the entrance

There was a huge courtyard.  So big that I thought perhaps the guild had opted for an outdoor guild hall.

Of course, Revelry and Honor is always in the spirit of the holidays, so there was a large Frostfell display already up in the middle of the courtyard.

Holiday Spirit

No small display either

I soon discovered that this was not just an outdoor affair either.  A look at the map gave me some scope, but didn’t really convey the size.

As it turned out, there was a lot going on inside as well.  In fact, there is so much going on inside, so many objects to load, that several times I got kicked out of the zone and had to reload back at the start.

And the map doesn’t even do this justice, as there are stairs up to multiple floors.  You can even get up on to the roof.

Looking out from the roof

If you look at the first two pictures, Reynaldo was positioned on the right side of the roof of the building in the background for that picture.  And a big building it is.

Reynaldo on the roof, for scale

As Reynaldo would no doubt say, truly a fabulous guild hall.

I hesitate to ask what it costs in upkeep every week.

Shut Up We’re Talking #40

Shut Up We’re Talking” one of the podcasts in the VirginWorlds Podcast Collective now has episode Forty available.

A very special year end show, and not just because it consisted just of members of the Revelry and Honor EQ2 guild.

Hosts Darren and Karen are joined by Michael Zenke and myself to wallow in all that was 2008.

  • Introductions – As if you did not know
  • What We’re Playing – You can probably predict most of the answers
  • The Ghosts of Predictions PastDarren, Karen, Michael and myself talk about our predictions for 2008 and how far off we were.  Darren and I scored ourselves in posts already, but you can look back at and see how well we did.
  • The Ghosts of MMOs Present – We take up the Massively categories and pick our “bests” for the 2008 MMORPG scene.
  • The Ghosts of Predictions Future – We each make one prediction about what will happen with MMORPGs in 2009.
  • Blog of the Week – There was NO blog of the week.  But Darren has an angle to this.
  • Out Takes – What could beat Mr. Zenke’s Bartle rant during the show?  How about Darren’s wife?

And, as an added bonus, an after-show picture of the show crew in the R&H Guild Hall.

Another fine show and a testament to the editing powers of Darren.  However, he really needs to hire me to do his show notes.
