The last thing I heard was that Sonoma is considering hosting one in September, but yeah that's a long time away. We need someone to satisfy our rares festival addictions!

:Begging:

(I'm happy to host some silent auction stuff on any shard, but I can't setup the entire festival)

Me and lonewolf own most of southwest zento... he could recustomize his 3 houses and host the fest there.... I'll sit at my house eating popcorn and watch. :)

Usually a rares festival needs at least 6 houses, do you guys have that many?

2 for vendors (1 for rares, 1 for normal stuff)
2 for silent auctions (the first auction always fills up extremely fast, so only having one isn't really an option)
2 for other stuff (usually one for the backpack art and one for a live auction, lottery, stage, contests etc.)

If you guys can get enough houses I think that spot would be perfect for it!

Where is Elenni? She's been noticeably missing for the past 2 months.

The "Trader's Auction House" during Chessy Rares Fest seemed to be a big hit (not to mention it offered overflow from the Silent Auction houses). Can we get one of those again?

Elenni has had a lot going on. She's in touch, but had to back off of Stratics a lot to take care of personal and work issues. She's looking forward to participating more on Stratics when her time commitments ease up.

@BrianFreud is the one who usually runs those, I guess that would be up to him. I agree it was a really cool idea. He might not have time with the new baby and everything though.

His kid is playing now. Already has 3 accounts. Believe the kid will be holding their own mini-trader house auction. Brian will let him run 1 floor to learn the ropes.

Awesome. I still have the rune from all the raffles I didn't win, so I could just teleport in and walk over. Thanks Restless for getting Lonewolf to do this!

Elenni was the one putting together Sonoma; I'd guess that's been on hold with her busy in RL. I'd also heard that GL wasn't going to happen after all. At the moment, the only fest I think is actively being planned is blend's Sakura fest in Jan (or so) of 2017.

As for a trader's auction, I've been happy to run them at future non-Atlantic fests. If I ran one on Atlantic, though, I'd be afraid of it getting way too big, like the Hidden Valley Auctions, esp with as much stuff as I'm quietly hearing people are planning to unload in the near future. I'd think an Atlantic fest would be maybe better served by maybe a couple of live auctions instead. Plus, the baby is a big time drain at the moment - May/June and he'll be just starting to crawl. :)

I just hope any Atlantic fest would be a true 'festival'... the 2015 jubilee was a bit too much "sell stuff" and too little "build community" for my tastes.

I'm sorry you felt that way. Everyone I worked with did so because of the community and had tons of fun doing it. Its a bit depressing to hear that's what you took from our efforts last time.

Don't mind him - I'm sure he's just a sleep deprived new father. :p

The last Atlantic rares fest was the first one I had ever been to. I thought it was the best community event I have ever seen in all my years playing any MMO. I even got to talk to Mesanna while I was browsing around. Wasn't there even a campfire story telling event for all those roleplaying folk? What more could you ask for!?
