Is it that time again? The always enjoyable All Guilds Meeting was held today, a week late due to Mysterium, but worth the wait! A couple of big announcements and updates kept things lively and fast paced as Leonardo returned to moderate. Here are the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for your enlightenment, with a summary here as well:
Guild of Writers/H'uru
Branan made an appearance to mention that the team had just released their latest client for Gehn shard with a few needed tweaks and additions, all detailed in the previous news post made today. The biggest news was the addition of a new fan Age created awhile back by Lontahv for a Rapid Age Development (RAD) contest.
Day of Dancing/Default Avatar Day
Alien came to the stage to announce plans for the D'ni Day of Dancing, with a "default avatar" theme (meaning a brand new avatar created and brought into the game without changing any settings, just for the occasion and possibly other occasions). The plan is to have this party on September 3rd, with a start time yet to be announced. Stay tuned!
Rarified dropped in as the sole member of OU in order to take any questions explorers had for the team. Real life has kept everyone else away for the time being. Christian Walther will hopefully be able to help him clear through the backlog of fixes and they also plan to implement a physics update sometime in the near future. The next update for Minkata shard is still being pieced together and they have kept in touch with Cyan Worlds during this down time.
Guild of Messengers
The GoMe was next, with [Noor]Max talking a bit about his series of articles that are appearing on The Cavern Post. Doobes announced him and Gay Hood officially as full fledged Messengers with the GoMe. Ahlisendar then made the big announcement about URU2U and the new trailer, asking anyone who was interested to contact the team at email@example.com.
Ending the meeting on a very high note was Lyrositor, who, as usual, has been extremely busy with his contributions to the cavern. Lyrobot received a few upgrades, including a new Marker Exchange where players can upload and download marker games directly to/from the bot! NOTE: You can only upload a game if you created it. His other announcement was of a new custom client that can pull marker games and place them into text files for easy editing! When done, they can be uploaded back into the game either as a new game or to replace an existing one. This feature will soon be implemented into Lyrobot for easier access.
And that's it for now! See you in September!
