Neverwinter Nights Player Appreciation Days
June 18 - July 3, 2012
In recognition of Neverwinter Night's 10th anniversary, Arenthyor is participating in a community-wide celebration of our current players and welcoming new players! Over the course of 2 weeks and 1 day (the days between the US launch of the game and the European launch of the game), we will be hosting a series of DM-led events.
The current schedule is as follows (all times are US EDT). End times are flexible and may go longer.
NEW!!! Based on player participation on any one or more of the below days, there may be an exciting special DM event:
"A Drop in the Bucket": An Arenthyor whodunnit adventure for 4-6 adventurers of 3-4th level (if your PC is not 3-4th lvl, additional xp will be provided to get you there)
Corpses found in Bastion's Low Quarter are not a rarity. In the slums of the fort-town, ruffians and ne'erdowells flock to the tight trash-laden streets to hide in the smoke-clogged alleys and ply their trade upon unsuspecting new refugees. However, these new corpses all share a morbid trait unseen ever before: they've been drained of blood! The Bastion Watch has been unable to ascertain the identity of the person(s) responsible and have decided to recruit bait,er, mercenaries to help flush out the perpetrators and bring these gory murders to an end. Can you solve the murders before the loss of more innocent lives, or worse...your own?
· Monday, June 18, 8:30pm - 11:00pm: "Player Appreciation Kickoff Party" - Get on the server and meet the players while hanging out in the Player Glade. Learn about the world and how you can make it yours. Who knows? There may be some unexpected RP surprises...
· Tuesday, June 19, 8:30pm - 11:00pm: "Arenthyor, the World Tour!" - Join a DM for a tour of some of the more unusual environs of the world of Arenthyor and get some very special world lore.
· Wednesday, June 20, 9:30pm - 12:00pm: "The Siege of Bastion" - The city of Bastion will come under siege by forces unknown. Can the defenders survive and prevent a total razing of the burgeoning city?
· Thursday June 21, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "Rise of the Underdark" - Strap on an Underdark character (drow, mindflayer, duergar, svfirneblin, for example) and suffer under the yoke of some nasty matrons who need dirty deeds done dirt cheap!
· Monday, June 25, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "Player/DM Meet & Greet" - Enjoy your favorite libation as part of an OOC social in the Player Glade. Tell us about who your character is...his/her background and motivation. We'd like collaborate on how best to DM your character's development. Involvement in this event will drive the event on July 2 (see below).
· Tuesday, June 26, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "Jousting!!!" - Saddle your warhorse and gird yourself for the sport of kings! A king's ransom to the champion!
· Wednesday, June 27, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "Rule the world" - Interested in becoming a Leader, Seneschal, or Minister for your faction? State your intentions to rule and throw your hat, er, helmet into the ring.
· Thursday, June 28, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "Darkness Falls Over Ithaeria" - The fey-ri grow ever bolder, testing the boundaries of the Shining Citadel from their aeries in the Fallen Lands of Ithaeria. The sun is blotted out by the sheer number of fey-ri descending from the skies. Who sent them and what do they search for?
· Sunday, July 1, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "De Planes! De Planes!" - There's a disturbance in the portals from Sigil to the planes. The Lady of Pain desires to know what force is attempting to redirect all the city's portals to the plane of Chaos!
· Monday, July 2, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "It's All About Personalization" - Every PC has a story. This event will be providing individual players with tailored adventures focused on their character development. All are welcome to participate to help a PC advance his story. However, you must participate in the June 25 event (see above) to be considered as a protagonist for a personalized quest in this event. You can still get personalized quests later by working with the DM team, but those will happen outside of the NW Player Appreciation Days.
· Tuesday, July 3, 8:30 - 11:00pm: "NW Player Appreciation Days Closing Ceremony - Induction of Faction Leaders" - Join the favored who will be responsible for leading your faction areas to greatness and world domination!
Additionally, there will be a special chest hidden in-game that, when opened, will provide you with a special code. By visiting each of the persistent worlds participating in the NW Player Appreciation Days, you cand find this item. Collect a code from as many worlds as you can. Those players with the largest number of worlds visited will be able to redeem prizes (gold, xp, or items) that are relevant to that world.
Looking forward to seeing you all as part of the Neverwinter Nights Player Appreciation Days!
