was played a bit. I was busy enough to gather materials and aid Player D. in his plot - to built Guildhouse. There were different materials to be added: flaxen tapestries and bolts; pale essence spheres and blocks; cedar and elm braces & jointings. Elm is still to be done, other materials were added and now the building is at 94% complete.
It was strange to read in mmorpg.com forums complaints about Istaria "forum nazis". There had never been such practice, at least as long as I remember. Some posts were left unanswered, that's true - but none was locked just because Velea wanted so.
I used benefits my own House and main character could give. After days of hunting I deposited as much to my house chest, my alt took it all, then I deposited again...and so repeated untill my main toon had no trophy items left. Second toon ("Vytautaz") had full bag of trophies and went to the Forsaken Inn in Lone lands to turn in trophies: he would build reputation with Eglain easier.
My main character ("NaktiesKarys") tried to do one quest in Garth Agarwen, but this try failed: territory is plagued with too powerfull soldiers (>3000 health each). To make things worse, they hold in groups. I'm still unable to find a group capable of defeating those evils.
In exchange, my secondary toon paid for my own house upkeep (and my main paid for Guild's house management...).
Overall the weekend was succesfull in both games.
