In the past, I have heard that players have formed objects to attract the Bahro or other characters into the cavern. So I was thinking: what if players formed the Cyan logo and hummed the tune? Do you think a Cyan employee would enter the cavern? Naturally, they're busy, so this may amount to nothing but getting players in the cavern, but I think it would be a fun thing to try.
The event will take place Friday, March 16 at 6:00 PM EST in the Summoner's Hood.(this should be 3:00 PM for Cyan) As someone suggested, we will " ... put gold-clothed people in the fountain and blue-clothed people around it to form a C.".
There will be a stream and an optional Mumble chat where people can actually hum the tune. This will be hosted at the Guild Of Writers(guildofwriters.org). Mumble is very easy to install and set up, it can be found here. It is open source software and free to download. Remember, use of Mumble is optional, but use of the MOULa client for voice chat is not allowed.
Being that the event is taking place while Cyan is at work, that means people in their timezone will be at work too, so it's up to us in the east to make the event work and get Cyan to come. If you can't make it, don't worry; I will post a full chat log.
I made a thread where people can write what they want to ask Cyan and I will ask your question to any Cyan employees that enter the cavern. That thread can be found here.
There will be virtual pizza! And don't worry, if you can't hold a tune, neither can I!
Community member MYSTRIVEN has announced that he has managed to produce some exact replicas of the Moiety Daggers from Riven, with the consent of Cyan Worlds! Using 3D Models and laser cutting, he has managed to manufacture 40 copies of these iconic objects from Riven.
The daggers are designed through the use of software, unlike Museum Replicas' daggers, which use a mold, and are hand-painted to match the texture of the Moiety daggers. The full creation process is described in detail in this forum thread, so if you happen to have professional industrial design software, a laser cutting facility, painting and texturing skills you can produce the same result yourself!
Cyan has allowed the production of these daggers, so in effect all legal aspects are covered by the following disclaimer:
"The Riven Dagger is a trademark of Cyan Worlds. Used with permission."

On behalf of the "gophers" of the Guild of Messengers, Nev'yn will be hosting a special info session about the guild, its current projects, and also do some recruiting. This special event is reminiscent of the old "guild fair" previously held in Kirel. In honor of the occasion, music will be provided, and since GoMe has some extra funds in its budget, plans are in the works to have pizza delivered!
Currently, the main two winning pizza selections are:
Teledahn Mushroom 'n Cheese or Spicy Quab w/Extra Sauce.
Provided by the Rooftop Volunteer Group's D'niJs, here's the link to the music stream: http://radioktdn.zapto.org:8025/

Over in the MOULa forums, Jamie Marchant came up with a brief thought:
"How can we get Cyanists to visit the cavern?"
followed by a novel idea:
"What if players formed the Cyan Logo, while humming the corporate theme song, maybe it would attract some unexpected visitors?!?"
This is something that has already been done in the past, sometimes with success (some Explorers may remember the Summoning Yeesha event in sil-oh-wet's Bevin during the GameTap Era).
Well, guess what??? Now it's time to make this vision into reality once again! The betting odds are against us, but all we can do is try!
A planning session for this event will be held in Jamie Marchant's Hood on Tuesday, March 6th at 15:15 KI-time. Help map out this future event, or drop by just to talk , have some fun, and good times!
Perhaps one our many cavern D'niJ's may even be there to provide some tunes! You'll have to stop in for a visit to find out!!!
