Heya GCD! Someone in the SF pointed out that we're FINALLY getting the Beach Party event that we paid for! There's currently forum set up for it! I figured I'd make a thread here, since so much of the community that actually cares about the site itself on the site holes up in the GCD!

I'm under the impression there will be NPC interaction, contests, and event item grants. I'll post them here when I find them! See the bottom of this post for how to get these items.

Item List (compiled with the help of the D-Party's thread, lilloulou, IIwizardeigesII, Mimi Sparda, Jisen Meizuki, Lady Saxophone, Boba Connoisseur, Renaissance, iBalthier, Sovngarde, lovely ghosts, Sweet Sentiment, Brenzie, Kovva, Rhea Byrne, Deruku Rorude Kaine, Nova0437, and the GCD!):

To get these items, you basically just have to be noticed by an [NPC]. Post in the event forum. Maybe even try to hold a conversation with one of them. They have to manually gift you one of the items. Posting in this thread seems to be a good idea, too - several [NPC]s have been lurking, posting, and slinging undies at people as a surprise. Now, here's the thing - like the events of old, these [NPC]s are controlled by people. That is - unlike the last mass of forum events done by spambots, these are actual people. I imagine it's very stressful to be put in the position they are. Don't be rude to them. They have lives and obligations outside of sending us items. If they don't see your post, keep on posting, but, I repeat, DO NOT BE A TURD. If you do get an item, thank them.

Spoons:
What do you think?
Is it everything you expected?
Am I the only one whose eyes are hurt by he forum background (it's SO bright and ugh)?
Above all else... do you think it was worth the gold we sunk into it?

"we're FINALLY getting the Beach Party event that we paid for!"

That phrase hurts my soul, we should get events regardless of if we pay.
Guess I'm glad to get something though.

About time. Man. Various site events tend to overlap. It's like they're all planning this or something. It's a conspiracy I tell you.
In other news, glad we're finally getting our long awaited event that we had to fund.

I'm so glad we have the NPC interaction. You can't have an awesome party without interacting with NPCs. emotion_kirakira

But truth be told, I thought the event will be held at Town 2 version of Gold Beach, not the forum. I'm guessing it was set there because the zOMG map have some few bugs to smash.

All of this right here. I hope more events don't happen this way.

Wow, the staff contests are up until August 31th eek

I wonder what there will be in the actual event to make it last for such a long time -- thought people being in vacation and away might be a good reason enough XD
