<p>Edited due to being snarky and witchy with a B... thank you and I hope the RL things are just minor annoyances and nothing major or severe or awful</p><p>thank you for working it all out and i will see you in norrath!</p><p>and thank you for volunteering your time to do these things for us!</p><p>darda</p>

Gryger_Halifax 07-29-2010 08:57 AM

<p>Hey Darda!  My apologies for the Lavastorm event not going off as expected last night.  That particular event requires multiple guides to run the event, and we just had some communications foul ups and wound up not having enough people to run it.  I'm currently trying to get a list cobbled together so we can run this one again.</p><p>As for the Tinkerfest Events...  We'll be getting more of those out before the end of the Festival so everyone can get their Tinker-groove going...  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>- Gryger</p>

<p>Tinkerfest is ending Monday.  Any chance of getting the Book (Tome of Tinkering, iirc) Guide quest before then?</p><p>Though, technically both Tinkerfest Guide Quests can be completed after Tinkerfest, assuming you can get your hands on the items for the Tome quest but the mobs for the other one are available all year.</p>

<p>Thank You!  Thank You!  Thank You!</p><p>/hugs book</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-03-2010 01:18 PM

<p>You are most welcome!  Enjoy!</p><p>And a big thank you to everyone who came out to say farewell to Tinkerfest!</p>

KerowynnKaotic 08-03-2010 02:12 PM

<p>well crap .. I missed it.</p><p>Any chance of getting it again?  It can be done at any point if you have the items.. which I do.  Heck, even if I didn't, I'd be fine holding on to the quest till next year .. assuming I'm still here .. still pondering that thought. </p><p>-----</p><p>And, can you please not just edit your original post?  I turned on the notifications from the boards but it doesn't help  apparently if you just edit your Original post.  A quick post saying you edited it would be nice & would trigger the notification system.   Thanks.</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-03-2010 07:55 PM

<p>Unfortunately, those quests have been taken out of rotation, so there's no way I can offer them again until next year.</p><p>As for the posts, I'll continue using the top post so it always contains the most up to date information, but I'll make sure to post something so your 'updated thread' ticker um...  gets ticked off...  LOL <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-03-2010 07:59 PM

<p>Just in case anyone is interested...  We had 42 participants in last night's Tinkerfest Event!  I guess you guys REALLY like Tinkerfest!</p><p>And yes, I'm completely aware of the cosmic significance of that number...  just goes to prove what I've known all along... </p><p>Permafrost knows the ULTIMATE answer!  To Life, The Universe...  EVERYTHING!</p><p>Don't panic!  <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p><p>Gryger Halifax</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-04-2010 05:24 AM

<p>First off, my apologies for the lack of Tinkerfest specific quests this week.  There was a communications breakdown, and we didn't get a chance to get more of them out there.  We are planning to address this issue before the next festival so festival specific issues will be run more often.  Please remember, we are here as volunteers, so I can't really force people to run specific quests.  As I said, we're working on this so the next festival will run a bit more smoothly.</p><p>As for the quest being taken out of rotation, this is not a server-specific thing.  When the bosses at SOE say a festival is over, any quests associated with it are taken out of rotation (not permanently, just until the next time the festival comes around) on ALL servers.  The lack of Tinkerfest specific events has NOTHING to do with SOE, it was an issue with the Permafrost team.  However, when SOE says "It's over" we have to remove any characters associated with those festivals and are not allowed to run any of those quests again.</p><p>Again, my apologies for the mix-up this year, we're working on the problem and will get this ironed out quickly.</p><p>Gryger Halifax</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-06-2010 09:08 AM

<p>So, in an attempt to get more events out there, I'd like you to tell me what times would be best for you to attend an event.  Please realize, we'll do everything we can to accomodate you, but I can't guarantee we'll be able to please everyone.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><strong>PLEASE REPLY VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE.  DO NOT POST YOUR RESPONSES IN THE FORUM.</strong></p><p style="text-align: left;">I'll compile everyone's replies and get this to the other Guides on the server so we have a better idea of what works for the players.  After all, there's no point in running an event if nobody can attend!</p><p style="text-align: left;">- Gryger Halifax</p>

<p>Boo! Am I missing anything being away at FanFaire? <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Hi everyone.</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-08-2010 04:19 AM

<p>We have a new holiday season starting up, so be sure to stay tuned to this thread to keep up to date on what your Guides have in store for you!</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-08-2010 05:49 PM

<p>Heyas Telsor! </p><p>Hope FanFaire is a blast! </p><p>I had planned on attending this year, but since I am due to become an Uncle any day now, I figured It'd be wisest to avoid "family aggro" and free up my vacation time to go visit my new nephew instead...  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  But next year, I fully intend on getting out there!</p><p>Gryger Halifax</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-09-2010 07:55 PM

<p>edited the top post to include some Guide events for this week (ending 08/12/2010)</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-15-2010 05:19 PM

<p>Added a last minute event to the calendar for this week.  enjoy!</p>

Telsor 08-16-2010 12:34 AM

<p>Look for a half-elf necromancer to be stageing a protest outside the Academy of Arcane Sciences building in North Freeport about 5pm PST on Wed. 8/18..... Apparently the Academy dosent want to take his research very seriously and he will be out to prove them wrong......with a little player help of course.... <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

SugarbowlSweetlumps 08-21-2010 04:38 AM

<p>Where oh where have our little guides gone?</p><p>Oh where oh where can they be?</p><p>Darda is sad seeing all the events posted on all the other servers with much smaller player bases than ours...did Permafrost end up the red headed stepchild server that gets no guide love? =(  And I hear from other people how guides gave them an entire set of shinies...I have got 2 =(</p><p>Come on permafrost guides...give us some shiny action and give us some quest love...with the tinkerfest fiasco of 2010, I hope that we dont get screwed with nights of the dead...</p><p>You know I love you guys, but you are disappointing us and making a lot of us feel let down and losing complete interest in showing up to your events if when they do get scheduled...and for the love of brell, do something besides find the dragon in random noob town!</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-21-2010 10:49 AM

<p>You will <strong>NOT</strong> have this problem with Nights Of The Dead.  This is my favorite festival in Norrath, so I'll be making sure there's plenty of fun!</p>

SIERRYA 08-21-2010 05:31 PM

<p>looks like I missed the guide event yet again this morning, [Removed for Content] work. In over 3 years playing the game I have not been on once when a guide event was going on =(</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-22-2010 09:44 AM

<p>That's why I've asked for people to drop me a private message with what times they would like to see events.  If you'll send me a PM with the times you're looking for, we'll see what can do for you.  Can't promise daily events, but we should at least be able to do something every so often so you're not left out.</p><p>- Gryger Halifax</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-25-2010 08:33 AM

<p>This was a slow week, but we managed to slip some events in towards the end!</p>

SugarbowlSweetlumps 08-26-2010 03:32 PM

<p>Me and a few others waited around in Antonica but never found any faes needing help this morning =(</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-27-2010 08:54 AM

<p>Aye, the "Real Life" monster claimed yet another Guide Event (the morning adventure in Antonica) ...  <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-27-2010 11:02 AM

<p>Please check the top post and see what we've got planned for the weekend!  The Festival of Lights will be leaving us soon...  one step closer to Nights of the Dead!</p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-30-2010 08:04 PM

<p>Posted a new event for Wednesday night (09/01) ...  This one really looks interesting, and I can assure you, the Kerra ain't weeping over her MISSING PET DRAGON...  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

Gryger_Halifax 08-31-2010 08:55 PM

<p>Announcing the Days of Harvest!  As part of the ongoing Festival of Shadows, Days of Harvest spans the entire month of September.  The Guides of Permafrost are here to lend a hand as all of Norrath celebrates another bountiful harvest!  There are couple of small side quests that can provide a little fun, all leading us one step closer to "Nights of the Dead" in October!  Keep your eyes on the top post of this forum, we'll be sure to keep you updated on all the fun!</p>

Gryger_Halifax 09-02-2010 01:24 PM

<p>A quick "thank you" to those who came to Freeport last night (some of you risking a beating for being Qeynosian!) and helping our kitty sneak-thief with her problem!  We had a great time hosting this one, and will hopefully be running it again for others to participate in!</p><p>As a quick side note, because of the the bonus XP weekend and the fact that it is a holiday (in the US) we're probably going to keep it a little on the light side this weekend, but you never know...  keep your eyes on Level_1-9, we might just pop in!</p><p>Gryger Halifax</p>
