Lol, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place on that as we just don't have the funds. This year I'll make sure the Order leaves the Gathering with a plentiful store of gold (just in case).

Copied and Pasted from my Facebook Post:

Reclamation Tarantula Event Thoughts and Thanks Part 1

Monsters - Oh my gawd, Monsters. Fantastic. From the expert and safe fighting, sneaking around and jobbing up of players (and sometimes each other) to the hilarious, unexpected and downright entertaining roleplay of the Aztar traders. Everything was done superbly.

Highlights for me includes the monsters that met some players when they transported in, pretended to be the welcoming Drow locals and proceeded to do over the players and nick their lammies! Next came the news (when I popped down to the Monster room) that the items that the traders were selling were going well - and being sold at 700% Higher than I had envisaged, they played PROPER traders who were out to make a profit . . . and they did!

The Citizens and other monster roles that were played by the crew were also done perfectly. Our brief in general was to play Tarantulas as they would any other character, choosing skills relevant to their role or position in the Faction - having house History, pride, wants and needs as well as grudges, quirks and attitudes befitting the roles. Quite a lot of the roles were whole weekend characters, and no amount of briefing or plot writing could have brought those characters to life better than how the crew handled it at the weekend. The result was that the sometimes palpable difference between player characters and Monster Characters was very blurred and lessened the need for suspension of disbelief.

Not only did the monsters excel at selling every lammied item that we had (sometimes twice over) but the non-lammied items that we sold (as physreps that people could keep) were also brilliantly traded. Including clothing, books, trinkets . . . and in on case, some black foam boards that I had brought along in case I needed to cover things up. The monsters sold them as "Granite blocks". At that point I was worried that the rusty sink in the monster room would be unscrewed and sold as a "Sacred Water Shrine". Well done

One last thing - nicking lammies, selling them back through the traders - rinse and repeat is big AND clever . . . Having more lammies on TOP of the ones we had to boost the trade.

End Post

Thank you, thank you, thank you all . . . . The characters would not have worked or seemed "Real" without you guys putting in so much work

I very much look forward to returning the favour :-)


P.S. Vemundr the DOOMED ;-)

Entertainment - being an Ak Ack Trader... trying to get across that you wanted to trade random stuff for stell and trying to do a rite only using Ack Ak Ak

Then being taught how to say "****" to describe what we were selling

and that " Ishmael is the baddest mother f***er" was hilarious
