A Royal Tailor Required!

Hail and well met everyone,

Queen Dawn is offering a once in a life time opportunity, to any tailor out there. She is requesting a special outfit be designed for the state of the guard promotional ceremonies. As it is currently the special attire she wares is for diplomatic meetings with Zhah and Dawn’s Council. The outfit needs to be formal looking, and still maintain her royal status, it must be guard friendly. Note the outfit is still for the Queen and every little bit of detail does matter!

(We are looking for a new outfit for dawn at the guard promotion ceremonies, anyone can enter. make an outfit, make sure the colours are the way you want them. Take a screen shot of what you want it to look like, either A: use yourself as a model, or B: go onto TC1 and make a new one,   Once you have that screen shot send it to Aname@uoem.net   and CC it to Autolycus@uoem.net

DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 17 2010 AT  11PM EASTERN/10PM CENTRAL)

Hear Ye, Townsmen! Gather 'Round!

Hail,

Auto and I are now in the boat with a bunch of other crazy people and are going to be doing our best to recognize you player run towns. How will we be doing this? Well….

Firstly you need to qualify and to do so you need a few things,

1) Buildings
5-10 Village/Hamlet
11-20 Town
21-30 City
31+ Kingdom/Empire/City-State

2) An active community.

Simple right? ^_^

So you are now qualified to get recognized as a town, now the hard part comes… We need to meet up with you and talk, and see the locations and verify that your numbers are correct, and that there is houses. (IE. You say you have 38 people but really only have 21)
Next we need you to find a lovely open spot and design a banner, now you need to be sure that this wont block major housing placement, and that it is rather small, no building a tower as your banner.  Some examples can be seen here… http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=1025   and here!  http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=1024

Now you have finished your banner so you need to contact us, Make sure you contact both of us, since this is a slow process if you don’t it can become a lot longer.

InsideUO should be used to find the correct ID numbers of the components for the proposed banner.It will also help you to construct a picture of the banner.

Banners are limited to a size of 6×6 tiles. Designs should be similar to the Gyldenfeld banner in terms of size, complexity and number of items used.  Banner designs that do not meet the requirements will be returned.
Town Recognition Requirements:

1) Minimum of 5 Establishments in a geographical area that promotes the community of the inhabitants.  If you are applying for a tavern or single establishment, it must meet all of the other requirements listed except for leadership.
