This was a huge sucess on the AB Server, big props to Taysa and Arquenniel of the Knights of Freeport for putitng it together there.  I think we had over five guilds there helping hand out stuff to folks.

Butcherblock survived the many time changes to have a great 1st time event! We had more goodies to give than players who took them, and I think next time it will be better organized-which I caught the criticism of our disorganization in level chat, plus we had the "Beavis and Butthead" dude starting his own auction on the isle. Of course there is always "that" guy at these events, you know the one who at ANY concert, including the CSO's Handel's Messiah concert who is going to stand up light his lighter and yell "FREEBIRD", so I found it rather amusing and just ignored the whole thing. Why feed the trolls?

We had fun, foinix our guide was so AWESOME! and did a lot of fun things. We had raffle drawings, and we had chocolate pudding fight and A "Run Naked through the pig fields of mara, did I say naked enough times there?"  race.

Now on to the absoulute best part-my thanks and gratitude to:

first and foremost, Malice of Wonderland for their AWESOME organizing skills, crafting and showing out in full force! they rose to the challenge, including me surprising them with the "HEY! we will have chocolate pudding fight and Malice is hosting it!" in level chat. Hathun and his crew were excellent.Gerand organized my raid for me, I am totally lost in that arena, thank you! Twylight handled the announcing for me. I could not have done this without all of Malice's help. 

Prymordial donated 17! distilled manas for the raffle drawing. That was awesome. 

Adriessah, Nawtic and Eleise for crafting  before and at the event!

Legion of legends for being present and giving stuff away.

Foinix! our guide for being awesome and a great sport.

Norrathan crafting alliance as always-our server is always in your debt.

And the tons of other people who helped, gave away stuff, showed up, answered questions when I wasn't there, and were just generally awesome! I know I missed some by name, but please know you have my gratitude and a appreciation.

We have a better plan for better organization next time, and more people who are willing to help with setup and promotion and running the event.

My server is the best! thanks again everyone!

Ack! How clumsy of me .. and of course a BIG BIG thank you to Dexella who went above and beyond in helping to get the word out with adding the event to player's in-game calendar and doing that lovely writeup. I've thank you over and over in private messages, but I really should be singing your praises publically too. Thank you for everything!

With the various player run festivals on AB we have experience with trying to get the word out.   So I believe Taysa was not only heralding the channels ( our term for advertising) she did a shout out in all of the lowbie zones as well periodically.   We had about 15 folks at once standing out just handing out stuff to anyone that showed up, there were probably a good 20+ all together that helped with it.  I didn't keep track of all the guild names but I think more then 5 less then 10 guilds participated in the hand out.   We had crafters on call to outfit folks that needed help with things.  I know I took time myself to completely outfit a couple of new folks to the game.    Arquienelle (Forgive my spelling) did a wonderful job coordinating the whole thing.   Players were given everything from plat, armor, potions, ammo, weapons, masters, food, drink and house items.

We got a lot of, wow this community is friendly and supportive, wow we are impressed and lots of thank yous.  So thanks for thinking this up!
