Greetings folks.

I'm the organizer of the Pay it Forward event on the Freeport server.

What is Pay it Forward, you ask? Well it's a day when adventurers and crafters come together to donate crafted goods, items rotting away in your bank, plat, rares, masters ... you name it ... to young adventurers, asking only that they perform some random good deed for a complete stranger in return.

This event creates an incredible surge of goodwill on our server (which is already awesome as is!) and I thought I'd announce the next event for our server here (last time folks said they wanted more advanced notice). What I'm also hoping is that maybe others on other servers would like to step up and be the host/organizer on their server, and make this event a game-wide thing.

Last time we had more than 30 people come out to donate items in the 3-hour event, held on the Isle of Mara. Everyone had a blast and walked away feeling like a million bucks -- both the givers and the receivers. The general comments were "Oh I wish I'd made more stuff" and "This was so much fun!"

People gave away adornments, rares from all tiers 10-90, fabled items, incredibly wonderful crafted items from levels 10 to 90, furniture, master spells, armour, poisons, weapons, 40-slot bags, and some even went with players who arrived on Mara and bought them housing in the city. Others even offered to craft thurga gear and AA mirrors, free of charge. No item was considered "too small" .. anything anyone did was absolutely wonderful because it's the message behind the giving -- to pay it forward and make the server a better place.

The only condition was that the person who received something had to do some good turn in kind. It was a very uplifting and fun couple of hours on Mara this past October (our second event). And it was remarkable to watch the goodwill spread as many who received items went out and ran dungeons for lower levels, or bailed someone out on a quest.

You can give away anything you like -- from crafted goods to plat, masters, expert spells or even high-level gear rotting in your bank. 40-slot bags, totems: jaguar, escape, wolf, sabertooth, etc, along with non-rare crafted goods like armour, bows and weapons are all happily gobbled up by young adventurers. Tinkered fireworks were also a big hit last time

Let's plan to meet in Mara again in crafting/house area on Feb. 4, 2012 at 4 p.m. EST (this gives folks living in Oz a chance to participate, not too late for Euro types, and middle-of-the-road time for Left and Right coasters).

So here's the breakdown:

WHAT: Pay it Forward 3

WHO: Anyone who cares to help make the server a better place and has items they're willing to give away, crafted or not, with no strings attached (well except for maybe a good deed or two).

WHEN: Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012 at 4 p.m. (EST)

WHERE: Isle of Mara, next to the crafting houses just off the docks

I'll make a few announcements in game too, but for those of your friends and guildies who don't use the forums, please feel free to pass this along.

It might also be a nice time to recruit for your guild, too, by giving you a chance to talk to the folks who show up.

For those of you interested in setting up a Pay it Forward event on another server that's not Freeport, please feel free to drop me a private message and I'll fill you in on more details. Or post in this thread about your server and location and time on Feb. 4.

Thank you in advance for all your kindness.

Fille (Jayne)

lol aye! SMILEY

It was more like "exactly how many toons can we cram into that narrow pathway between the crafting houses and the waterfall?"

But even the chaos was fun! SMILEY

Looking forward to seeing you out there again hon!

Horay, pay it forward! I will totally be there again.

I'm glad I'm not the only person thinking about helping the server lately; I have my fourth contest that will be going up today or tomorrow.

I'm wondering if any guilds would be willing to sponsor one heritage quest run that day? Donation of time is extremely valuable, but would be lovely if guilds would step up and offer this as a service this day -- maybe even run folks through their ER updates?

Post below if you can volunteer some time -- maybe 2-3 hours max -- and what you'd be willing to do.

I'll try and be there =)

I already give away hundreds of 40 slot bags I buy off the broker to newbies everyday, so this should be no problem.

Sylsetia from Eternal Shadows will host it on Guk. I believe the whole guild is participating.

Good stuff! SMILEY

I will be there!  SMILEY  I currently have 88 40-slot containers in my bank for this event, and I may be crafting some more.  And I may have 2 or 3 44-slot ones as well.

Wow! Nice! Thanks for the shout out on the home page -- hopefully this will reach more than just us Freeporters and spread to other servers. SMILEY It really is a worthwhile event.

Again, anyone interested in hosting on a server that's not Freeport, feel free to drop me a private message or post in this thread.

Much love,

Fille (Jayne)

The Looney Bin will be there to help out. We will be setting up a tent and are loading up on drinks, bags, potions, rares, and anything else our guildies can get together. We also have lots of crafters that may be willing to help out with those pesky Proof in the Pudding updates and Coldain Prayer Shaw updates. Hope to see you there!!!

Lovely! Lovely! Thank you for coming both of you! That's fabulous news! SMILEY

Gorraman, could you please give a few more details on what your guild will be offering? Like which Heritage Quest you're willing to run, what time it will start, and where folks should meet up? You might want to consider organizing it a couple of hours earlier, so you can come and enjoy the event on Mara -- like say 1pm EST for a start?

Also note: Everfrosters! (Everfrost server) .. Mata has indicated that Death Over Time guild will host its own Pay it Forward event on Feb. 5th at 4 p.m. (EST) -- same place: Mara. Stay tuned to your 1-9 channel for more details from Mata and guild leader Gems.

More news to follow about Freeport's Pay it Forward, but in another post.

More great Pay it Forward news for those of you stuck on your Epic Repercussions updates.

Ecodi will offer her services to help folks get through ER updates, but later in the day -- I'll let her update you here in thread on the times she will be available.

Sudarku, another one of our brilliantly generous Pay-it-Forwarders, has also offered to run folks through any of the ER dungeons for updates.  Will firm up details with him and what he's offering and post here soon.

Final details on what, when and who to talk to on Feb. 4 for this wonderful addition to the Pay It Forward event to come. Stay tuned .. and get your toons updated on your epic weapons while you still have time.

Everfrost will be doing a Pay It Forward event!

February 4th at 7 pm EST.

Isle of Mara - Just off the docks near the tradeskill houses.

Gems will be hosting from Death Over Time.  A number of her guild mates will be on hand to assist as well.  Please send Gems an in game email if you want to help co-ordinate efforts.  Or, if you might be willing to run lower level toons through an HQ.  That would be fantastic.

See you on Freeport!  (and, Everfrost!)

SPLITPAW server would like to host.

Who: Ascended Heroes will make an appearance. If not the guild leader (Sylyana) then officers or members (among them Glimmsterviryan).

We have crafers, tinkerers and capable players/toons aplenty, so this could be good.

When: 1600 hrs, Central European Time+1 (Amsterdam, Berlin etc. zone). For UK zone this would be 1500 hrs.

P.S.: I can't actualize this beyond a 'tentative' since I have a RL appointment that I can't be sure I'll be back in time from. I hope that people will turn up on the Mara docks on Splitpaw anyway!

This thread makes me happy every time I open it

So this is absolutely awesome -- so far these servers are joining in on Pay it Forward day:

Everfrost

Splitpaw

Guk

Any other takers from other servers?

And again, for those hosting on other servers, if you have any questions, drop me a line. It's pretty self-explanatory and I hope your event breeds the same goodwill it does on Freeport. Cheers!

Okay, I was thinking about what I wanted to offer for the event, and I think with my tradeskill being jewelry, I'm going to offer my services.

I will be online, with mats and fuel galore. All handcrafted jewelry sets or pieces will be free, just ask for them; all mastercrafted will be free as long as you supply the rare. All I need for info is what main stat you want, or what class you need the jewelry for, and the level. You can ask me what rare is needed for your class, and I'll be more than happy to supply the information.So if anyone reading this knows people who will like jewelry, please pass on the word.

I'll also see if I can't craft stacks galore of arrows on my woodworker, provided I stop slacking. :B

LOL Miss Fille,

Everything I told you I was gonna make, I can't now as people have already said they are going to make

what I was.  Well, I guess I can just grace you all with my presence LOL.

I was gonna make the arrows and potions but that is already taken.

I can offer all 9 PoP and Shawl updates.

Oh hon, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with duplication of items -- in fact that will help prevent one person from running out of items too early -- which happened at the last event.

Make whatever you'd like .. I'm sure some lucky recipient will be very happy with whatever you come up with.

If Oasis server is going to be having an event I'd be happy to help.

I won't be able to be online, but I could fill a house with furniture and set the options so anyone can go in and take anything they need.

If the even pans out on Oasis I'll post the house location and name for the organises to publicise.
