    Then they also figured out they can do just the loot part, with none of that silly quest part, and now you have the basis for every event. Tadaaaaaaa
    Those aren't really "quests" IMO. They are just a series of "Hey, go do this". I'd have story and shit. NATA was really just "Hey go look at/on/under/behind/in shit and then put shit on a pedestal in this amount of time"

    Not as simple as what you are talking about, but GM Quilic has made it so that one of the bartenders(Greth? I am not sure which bar it is) on Four Winds Isle will answer basic questions about what has been going on with the Storyline he is running there.

    I suggested to him that they should do that in all the towns so that folks had an in-game way to learn the latest news, etc., but apparently his hands are tied by the strange proprietary convolutions of Simu Dev. It would be up to each individual GM to do it or not, and he cannot really do anything outside FWI except suggest.

    Going to a bartender or inkeeper and asking about NEWS sounds cool as hell.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    This is the weirdest fucking thing. SO MANY people complain about how they can't keep up with things, especially during events. Either it's unannounced entirely, or it's in one of like 5 places. Newsby does a great job of aggregating all this, and during events other people try to as well but it's just all over the map. Is it tweeted? is it on the officials? just in discord? all the major stuff announced ahead of time or lol "hey guys 100m item drawing in 30 minutes at this event you paid to attend, sucks to be you if you aren't home", etc. Came up during EG or dr or something and Wyrom acted like if they just made a policy of like anything that's raffleworthy we announce at least X hours ahead of time via Y methods that like, GMs would revolt or something. And that they couldn't tell them to do that because CONTRACTORS.

    I'm like no man, you'd just have to do your job and make sure people are following guidelines. Shit isn't complicated.

    Perhaps I should have said stuff that isn't a bunch of low effort bullshit fetch quests? That better for you?

    You won’t be so confused if you just understood they don’t give a shit about the game other than the ways to extract $$ from gambling addicts.

    Just stop thinking of this game as some kind of CDprojectRed legit “I want to entertain people” game and a more sinister gambling addiction/money extractor tool and you’ll never be befuddled again.

    Wyrom’s background as a former slot machine tech is not a fucking coincidence and if you think it was you’re massively naive.
    Go away retard.

    No, you illicit that response because you are you and I want you to go away. I don't care if it was 1991 and you were telling everyone to invest in Apple.

    It’s fine, just enjoy the game as you aee fit and maybe if we can get enough people to chime up we can get Simu to do some lore as well. Maybe and hope.
    My non response was because I don't sit around waiting for you to post on PC. I go off and do other things. As for what you were wanting me to respond to, I didn't read it, because I don't read most of the drivel you post. Most people don't. Because you're an idiot.
