Subj: Thank You for Making Ebon Gate Great!
I just wanted to say…this EG has been one of the most generous, kind, and giving EGs that I have seen in a number of years! So many people have worked together to make sure people got the services they most desperately wanted, and I admire the generosity. You all remind me of what GS is all about! Some of the random acts of kindness I have witnessed:

Ramith gave away an animal companion grooming to a very deserving Ranger who showed up, Kittai. Thank you for making Ebon Gate great Ramith!!

Rohese gave away an Igaesha vial unlocked to a very deserving Sorcerer, Lylia. Thank you for making Ebon Gate great Rohese!!

Mikalmas gave away a shock weapon unlock to Hoodtralfeck! All in the spirit of making this Ebon Gate great!

Jadzara gave away an Igesha vial unlocked to Chaddeaux. Thank you for making this Ebon Gate great, Jadzara!

Heartfire gave away an unlimited fletching razor to Nihrvanah. Thank you for making this Ebon Gate great, Heartfire!

Dirvy gave away a climatewear spot to Thailmore. Thank you for making this Ebon Gate great, Dirvy!

Rhangath gave away a permanent fletching razor to Dirvy as a wedding give. Thank you for making this Ebon Gate great, Rhangath!

Katara gave away a Veola customization to Dirvy as a wedding gift! Thank you for making this Ebon Gate great, Katara!

This is only a small sample, every one pay it forward, and share any acts of selflessness and kindness YOU have witnessed this EG!

Last night Miss Rozy split her Veola place with me. She got something unlocked, but did not need the alteration, and so my pretty circlet got … prettier!

Thanks Miss Rozy! <3

Knarre, Azryen, and Kaasori have also been spotted using their service selection luck for benefit of others, multiple times. o/


Cendadric says, “Hmm, a most impressive weapon of note. I’ll give you 27 silver coins for it.”
You think to yourself, “This deal is getting worse all the time.”

Treeva gave away her lapidary box alter and unlocking to me today, for which I will never be able to fully repay her — other than a lifetime’s supply of pretty chrism gems.

Just out of curiosity.. are you and Treeva acquaintances/friends? Or was this a random act of kindness to a stranger?

Because the latter would be more awesome.

I’ve been the recipient of and a witness to a lot of wonderfully generous actions this EG. Rohese did indeed give me her Igaesha vial unlock raffle win, and I adore it! Other people also offered to give me theirs if they’d won, and I’m also thankful for that generosity. Crux, Maags, Maylan, you’re all sweethearts!

Some of the generosity I saw, I’m not going to share because I think a few were meant for gifts — but I will say many people are truly thoughtful.

Having a great time at EG!

I’m surprised the merchant didn’t just give you one, in recognition. 🙂

Cruxophim was very kind to donate an unlock slot to me last night. I greatly appreciate it.

There has been a lot of kindness at this year’s EG. I had someone give me their recharging slot, and a couple of people have helped me with climatewear cloaks and gem pouches. Also, I’ve seen people pool their raffle tickets for things that one or the other want, with a running “you’ll have to roshambo for it” deal for two people out of three who want one thing being raffled. Good natured fun had by all, even though they didn’t win the raffle. It’s kind of heartwarming to see the friendships.

No big wins for me this year, but my luck has been good in past years so I can’t complain. Peace to all,

Kerl

>Rohese pleasure

I was more than happy to give you my slot, given how incredibly thrilled you were about those lapidary boxes. You’re one of my peeps, I always got your back. <3

Any other offered up spins/wins immediately went to members of my beloved HoA group. We always had a list of people hoping for X item/service. So no random acts of kindness towards strangers here. I just really adore Roh, listening to her excited squees definitely does it for me.

I want to give a shout out to Maags for helping Kayse get her poison locket fully unlocked and also to Shinann who bought imbeds for Kayse with shells since she didn’t have any!

With RL lately, I haven’t had as much EG time as I do in the past.

Thank you both <3

Brimzstone, “The Cobbling Bonanza Girls”, Tysong, Kinjaro, Lylia, Maylan, Cruxophim, Yakushi, Drekoi, Rohese, Melivn, Eruheran, Alasatia, the Ladies of HoA, and I KNOW I’m missing some more, for which I apologize profusely. Your generosity is absolutely stunning, and I only hope that I have/can repay your kindnesses. Pay it forward is alive and well, and sometimes the smallest gesture can mean the world to someone.

The GMs who put in long hours, both creating the new watery grounds for us to play in (major props to Haliste), and dealing with long lines of players who might be totally clueless (myself included). In particular, the never-tiring Elidi and Elysani, Kaikala, Galene, Liia, Necios, Mikos, Skhorne, Valyrka, Lydil, Xayle, the ever-so-patient Thandiwe, and those rascals Retser and Tamuz. Please don’t set me on fire if I forgot someone!

The number of cool toys that were created for this years festival was absolutely ASTONISHING, and the QOL improvements did not go unnoticed, although I think a number of us would like to have the MERCHANT EBON verb returned.

Overall, I think you collectively knocked this event out of the park for me, and once I get some much-needed sleep (and we finish with this years saga of Eeljesus), I can’t wait for next years Ebon Gate!

It’s really events like this when the community of players comes together that makes GemStone the most awesome game!

Thank you to everyone for all the things! Your quiet work and selfless actions keep the bar high, the atmosphere amazing, and the quality of life in extremely busy moments enjoyable and precious.

Big Hugs everywhere! Staff, Players, Characters, heck I’ll even hug a server or two for working double hard!

<3 <3 <3

Now that it’s over, thanks to all The GMs who worked countless hours and REALLY cranked out a LOT of services this year! I know last year we all voiced concerns about the lack of GALD services during the last year of Feywrot. You guys certainly listened and stepped it up this year. There was an abundance of GALD work as well as unlocking of wares in shops. Some AMAZING new things. To Thandiwe and Kaikala inparticular…thank you, thank you, thank you…SO MUCH for all the incredible divination/Ritual items. Rovvi and I already had custom “cases” made for our ritual daggers and evisceration knife. Love this so much, and for Rovvi to be able to get a Finvale Crystal. Just so incredibly special. HUGE shout out to Ylandra for offering, without expectation of payment or return, that rare and amazing crystal to Rovvigen. He will cherish it foreever.

I know a LOT of GMs done a LOT of amazing things and put in ridiculously long hours, and I don’t mean to slight anyone for compliments. Just the things that were most special to us, we knew who done them. I know the rest of you worked just as hard. Even behind the scenes, I can’t imagine the amount of work it takes the QC team to go through all this. I do my share of complaining, but I also like to do my share of complimenting. And overall, the work put into this EG is just phenomenal. You’re all incredibly talented, gifted people. We appreciate the work you ALL do.
