The Nhur Athemon Sequence

Father Bronin

Yes, activating one twinned character will activate the other twinned character for free.

How long before this begins?

It will be part of EE 18, scheduled to deploy sometime this month or next month.

Thanks Bob. I look forward to have my secondary characters gain xp.

BACK ON TOPIC:

One thing to consider for the xmas events might be something that gives individual characters/players rewards over and above the settlement based rewards. Potentially a PvP tournament, controversial as that may be ? Or maybe just something as simple as greatly enhanced chances of stone drops while participating in event escalations on particular days?
Yes. These are great ideas and can presumably be done easily… I believe anyway. Things like this are all very much cool. They qualify as "events" = "reason to log in" that don't require heavy story or mechanical changes so they are even better than whatever I suggested.

Edit: To point out that things like Edam suggests are great for the topic we are on, as I heartily agree, but they won't necessarily serve long term player retention. Though they might help if events are more prevalent.

After thinking about this some it occurs to me that the daunting list of hexes with sequences would be much different if it would have been applied to just the assigned hexes.
Even with inactive or dead settlements, if the sequence would have been just spawned into hexes assigned to each settlement there would be plenty left for active settlements to work on after their own but would also be more balanced to the current population.
Would it be possible to isolate this year's sequence or whatever is done to just the "assigned hexes"? Or does anyone have thoughts on this?

The sequence could have been taken down but instead most groups have chosen to farm them. Hexes not being worked on were progressed to either a shadow or a wrath for two reasons. Firstly the nuhr escalations do not decay so you get to preserve the sequence to work on later. Basically "saving" the T3 stuff until you have time to work it. Secondly the nuhr escalations are relatively harmless to gather in and do not harass adjoining holdings overly much.

There was actually no good reason to take the sequence down. There was no reward as such for taking them all out, just the slightly annoying possibility that the Aristocrats would start popping up uncontrolled in places they were not wanted.

I would have been relatively simple to just keep clearing bosses as the hexes naturally decayed down to each new boss and by now we would be down to the last handful of hexes. There was just no good reason to do that.

Yes, when I run the GM command to launch all the sequences simultaneously, that command checks a spreadsheet to see which hexes should launch which sequences. It would be easy to remove the unassigned hexes from that spreadsheet.

    Whoops. I had to enter all those manually and messed that one up. Should be Staalgard (1-6-6). That's now fixed in the spreadsheet, so it will be fixed in all future updates.
