Holidays and Special Caledar Events

Post by Keighn » Wed Oct 08, 2008 6:50 am

I'm kind of curious what all the current EUO calendar events are. From what I know thus far:

Beginning Weekend of the month = x2 XP day.
Christmas = Christmas.

How difficult would it be to create some other holidays that happen once a year or such? I've heard suggestions like:
Lumberjack Day = x2 woodcrafting (or some sort of crafting day where specific crafts raise faster or the logging itself is at x2).
Black Storm = Magic % to cast is reduced by 50% (damage is also 50% less)
Lucky 0' Lenny's Pot o' gold = x2 gold found
Blue Moon = TPs and portals malfunction
Drunk/stoner day = everyone talks like their on eggnog, walks randomly, and sees everything like cosmic.
Good Friday = Every monster in the game turns good that day (or neutral).
Holy Cow of Bovindus = if you kill a cow it explodes into a bunch of magic tough zombie cows
Red Warrior at all the Food (gauntlet reference) = stores don't sell any food and fish can't be found. I suppose famine of some sort would be a better name.
Insect plague = lots of insects & perhaps nastier ones.
Disease = % chance of while wandering around you end up diseased or poisoned.
Black Monday = no gold or drops from any monsters. Chests are empty.
Week or day of the ??? = ??? = monster name which tends to spawn in x10 the quantities.
Go to jail = When a guard kills a criminal he respawns in jail. When he meds of crim time (which will take a hell of a long time in jail) he'll be released.
Speedy Jane or Slow Joe = chars walk like armoured low dex or like horses.
Meteor Storm = Random fireballs striking people.
Lightning Storm = Random lightning.
etc..

I'm sure someone can think of more creative ideas.

Who needs to think of more!? Those are great enough as it is. I love the Meteor and Lightning Storms and Drunkard Day.

Those seem good, but a whole day with all of those? Noone wants a full day of cosmic seeing, they will log off and no one will play at all that day.


Pot O' Gold thing was good though. :D

About the 50% less mage thing, that's not fair to the mages. There needs to be something for fighters and rogues too.

Just saying though.

Day of transfer - Using transfer wands doesn't nerf the enchantments being x-fered.
