    I feel like, with the missing period, that the piping through of the char name is breaking the line and we're missing half the deathsight.

    I have no idea if it did anything, but hurling insults and expletives into the ear of a mountain-sized earth elemental while slapping it repeatedly with an Elder Dragon tail was more amusing than it had any right to be.

    I've been a bit iffy about the 'hands-off-ness' of this particular event so far, but given the things we're dealing with are titanic manifestations of ancient elemental might, it makes a lot of sense that they don't exactly talk a lot, or even march to the beat of a mortal's drum. Their dismissiveness sort of does wonders to bolster the sense of oh shit that is currently building, and I'm excited to see what happens when it all inevitably comes to a head.

    Good stuff!

    Could you go into further detail about this point?

    This I really agree with, and I think more public interactions like Nissa's would go a long, long way to help alleviate that feeling. I think Nissa's meeting helped keep everyone at least at a baseline of involvement, and that's a good thing.

    Edit:  While players could probably do this themselves, it feels like faction lines have been drawn so thick and so distant now that everyone super-distrusts everyone else.  It's impressively difficult to cooperate in a meaningful way these days because of that.  A neutral party is almost required to get the ball rolling.

    Likely this point wont be agreed with, but I suppose the only thing that slightly upsets me about the event is the feeling of being "forced" to take this path. Several of us have tried to go with different routes rather than "wake up the monstrous elementals" but it seems it is falling on deaf ears.

    I enjoyed in the Black Wave event the feeling that our reaction to situations could be as fluid as we pleased with possible different outcomes. So far I dont feel that to be the case here. It's either help summon the elementals or...do nothing. Try to counter them? They destroy you in 1 blow.

    This isnt a complaint, just an opinion of how I feel this event is going so far.

    I'm willing to bet there's a very specific direction admin needs this event to go for the culmination, so they're just ensuring we "choose" that direction.

    I get the feelin that this is just the start, the scene-setter. I'm sure decisions will need to be made once the elementals are all summoned. 

    I like the fact that there is little we puny mortals can do to disrupt the intent of such taw elemental power.

    Exactly what I felt. it is like having us figure out what admins want and then cooperate and provide them with the progress... Might as well just reveal the story chapter by chapter while we sit back relaxed and read the text. Not a complain, I don't know how to quest anyway. Just collecting opinions.

    I am glad this event has been linear so far without room to diverge from the story (that I know of).

    There has still been a good amount of stuff to figure out that has been fun, and gotten a lot of people involved.

    I look forward to the rest of the event!!

    I am not complaining myself since things are just starting, but if there's a complain I often hear, is how most events always feel so linear. Not saying those people are right or wrong, but it seems like a popular perception.

    Still, regardless, this has only just started, so its really silly to say anything except that its been interesting and fun so far.

    I prefer linear storylines and clear goals over convoluted and complicated, but that's just me. To each their own.

    The fun thing about non-linear is going with what might not be the best choice. Or in fact, going with the worst one.

    Yep

    I dislike linear because it somewhat feels like forced RP.

    Alot of our characters have been around long enough to have learnt that listening to the request and advice of some randomly appearing entity/group...is a bad idea. In this case..we rather have no other choice before us, other than do nothing and not be involved.

    As others said, the event just started and there will likely be more opportunities. I just wished those standing resolute against following the wishes of this randomly appearing org had some path to take. :/

    Hoping it appears later.

    I like that it's sometimes (or often) on rails because there are too many people who do actions that make no sense IC.  Like trying to feed food to a giant mountain.  Or any number of dumb things they would never do if it were IRL
