Ok - after sitting down and going over what happened last night, Gesh and I have an explanation... icon_smile.gif

Gesh was busy setting up props in Dragon Valley for the event. Some folks stumbled across it so he brought in the Dragon just to scare them off.

Dark Strike went out to BF to try and warn folks off... which was good...

Anyway, at about 8:30p Gesh tried to possess the Dragon so it would stop killing people. He missed the dragon and clicked on open space.

When you click on open space in the DM Client, the radial menu selection is 'Teleport All Players to This Point'. It was accidently selected.

Which is why one moment you are shopping, the next, you are getting killed by this Ancient Chaos Dragon.

I (as DM) was also teleported to the Valley - by the time my Client sorted the whole thing out (took an extra minute or two) folks had been killed and I was standing in a stack of bodies. I sent the Dragon into Limbo and Gesh teleported folks back to Eleriina.

It was almost *ALL* Accidental! We would never have meant to teleport everyone into a situation where they would die. Heck - the server and clients had problems handling that kind of mass-teleportation. All we wanted was to keep folks *away* from that area so we could finish setting stuff up...

We apologize for how it looked, and how it felt. We didn't intend it. We're still learning the DM Client and - hey - we're only human. We make mistakes... icon_smile.gif

You guys are all great players, and we appreciate the support you've given us so far. Next time, we'll know to be more careful with where and what we click...

Have Fun!

Mike

So all the characters were all teleported to the dragon hehehehehe


talk about your all time stuff ups =P

Just wanted to say Geshtal that the idea about a smugglers and it being a non-announced event is a stroke of genius, it adds another dimension to the gameplay of dysotopia, I hope more sorts are put in more frequently icon_smile.gif

I know you must be busy though.
I've been looking for the bald headed smuggler occasionally when i pass through eleriina with no luck so far, anyway keep up the good work icon_smile.gif
