Cosmicon Weekly Event
Announcing Cosmicon a new community event for Arkenstone.
Cosmicon is a weekly in game meet up with the focus on cosmetics.
Players meeting up at Cosmicon can show off their favourite outfits, ask for advice on cosmetics, buy or sell cosmetics, buy or sell dyes and sharing cosmetics for slotting into Cosmetic slots or Wardrobe.
Held once a week on Sundays at 11:30am Server time in varying locations.
This could be your chance as getting your hands on a rare piece or getting ideas for your outfits or maybe even making a little coin.
For this event a special channel has been created "cosmicon" (to join the channel type /joinchannel cosmicon).
Announcements and discussion will be covered here but the event its self will be advertised over regional channels and glff.
On off times this channel can also be used for discussing Cosmetics.
Basic Rules and Practices:
To keep things interesting and safe for participants some basic rules and practices have been implemented.
The biggest part of Cosmicon is borrowing cosmetics to slot into Wardrobes/Cosmetic slots.
When you want to Lend out outfits link the items into the channel and make sure you say they are for borrowing.
Players will then ask to borrow and you trade them they slot them into their Cosmetic slot/Wardrobe and return them once done.
If you borrow an item you must return it to the owner if you don't you'll be "blacklisted" from the event.
When borrowing Bind on Equip Armour you are not allowed to Bind the Item so BOE items can only be added to the Wardrobe.
When posting items make sure you say what they are for at the start of the post.
This is avoid to confusion.
Ie "For Borrowing: [Gwir-Palvais]"'
Make sure you have enough space before you start make sure you free up as much space as possible you never know how many new items you may get.
If there are any items you are after post them here to improve your chances of them being brought to the next meet.
For any more questions ask here or in the Cosmicon or Glff channels and check in here or Cosmicon/Glff channels for the week's location.
7th October at 11:30am Server Time 1st Floor Last Homely House in Rivendell I'll arrange ports for those who are unable to get there normally.
See you then.
ThiS seems great, but could we also have it on Thursdays too?
Cosmicon Week 2 starts in a few hours.
Clear up some wardrobe space,bring your best cosmetics and I'll see you at the Bree Town vault.
Wow, this really is a great idea! Maybe I can finally get [Gwir-Palvais] :D
Can't wait to attend the next one! Hopefully I have some stuff people might want to use for cosmetics.
I'll see if I can bring Gwir-Palvais along a kinny of mine has it.
I have the legs Tavol-Socas.
I wouldn't mind getting a hold of Cel-Crus or Fancy Winter Cloak or Warm Winter Cloak.
Since I fell asleep last week and missed Cosmicon (oops, 11:30 server time is approx 1am here).
This week's Cosmicon will be held at Michel Delving at the same time as usual.
So see you guys in a few hours.
Next week we'll be holding it in the Esteldin Crafting Hall.
See you then.
Since this is more or less an announcement thread we can ignore the triple posting.
Next week's Cosmicon will be head at the Thorin's Hall Forges to break in the new vault there.
I'm also starting a new thing screenshots from Cosmicon.
Some folks who participated, myself of course in the Chicken costume.
Next week's Cosmicon will be head in The Last Homely House in Rivendell.
11:30am Servertime on the 18/11/12.
For next week's cosmicon I'll be focusing more on Heavy armour looks so make sure to bring out your best heavy armour pieces.
This week's screenshot.
Some of our participants.
Left to Right:Xilorix, Radspakr,Ainurin (fixed the spelling) and Reallyfat in the background.
Heya, I was at the last one. I mentioned the Malledhrim-looking chest piece. Here's a picture.
Oh and the name's Ainurin. :P
Good news I believe I have a name for that armour.
Burglar’s Lesser Secret of the West Breastplate
Bad news it's an OD piece which will require a bit of work to get.
Ah I see. Pity I don't have a Burg. Thanks though.
You don't need a burg to barter, you can acquire it on any toon that can reach the barter with the appropriate currency (either the raid drop token or the medallions of the northmen) (the cosmetics are identical)
It looks like I'll be unable to make it this week.
Hopefully someone else will moderate the event in my place and take a screenshot.
Next week's Cosmicon will be in Galtrev (I'll try arrange escorts there for lowbies but will need a heads up first).
With Update 9 being released tomorrow and the Yule festival starting I'll be bringing back Cosmicon next sunday at 11:30am servertime on the 23rd.
It will be held in the newly revamped Breetown Vaults.
If anyone wanted to synchronise another event like fireworks or music or anything at the same time at the prancing pony that would be awesome.
Bring along your best holiday outfits and I'll see you all there.
Cosmicon is back on again this weekend same time and this week again at the Breetown Vaults so come along with your best cosmetics and bring an instrument and fireworks.
We'll be holding a small party out the front of the Prancing Pony on the stage.
I've also created a facebook page for Cosmicon where announcements will be posted.
Make sure to like the page so you'll be up to date with the latest news.
Any changes to plans will be posted there.
You can also submit photos from cosmicon events.
Celondim this weekend same time and I'm setting my alarm so I don't forget it again.
For those with Moria access I'm thinking of organising a Moria Keg run for afterwards.
I have a Moria keg in my house that is open for anyone to use we get a bunch of people together and see where we end up.
We could even set off fireworks at where ever we awaken.
If anyone else has ideas for other stuff to do during cosmicon let me know and we can try it out.
I want to make this as fun as possible something to look forward to.
