    DRINN

    After a lot of searching over the last recent months, we are excited to have found an
    Event Manager that Ultima Online Forever needs and deserves.

    This is an exciting time for everyone here.
    Drinns main role will be to come up with new major detailed events. Right from story lines, creatures involved, to rewards given for those events. He will also be leading the Event Masters in game to help along the way as well.

    Drinn is also our first European timed staff member as well.

    This means that from here on fourth, all events will be a lot more detailed, have backstories, and will be implemented in a much more polished way.

    Please feel free to welcome him below.

    Well, honestly this job isn't to be just handed out without any thought.

    This is the job that will be the base of entertainment for every single one of you event wise for hopefully, years to come.
    Not only does the person who fills this job need to be next level creative, but even more importantly, they need to REALLY get a long and be bond-able with the current staff we have now. Event's are ALWAYS a team effort, and doing proper events that you all want, takes an unreal amount of thought, time and skill from all staff as a whole.

    It's a more major spot to fill than maybe we put fourth.

    He is Event Master/Manager.
    Meaning he is Event Orientated only. He cannot create items, or anything of the sort. He can create and start invasions, he can start battle events whenever, and answer pages.

    That is about the max is staff powers will be, it's all about the Events with this. He has already totally completed in detail the Christmas event this year.

    I'd be majorly bored if I did get this position with these limitations. I'm more of on the spot here's something to do. Saw this coming.

    This is a decision that was made after ALOT of thought and time and was based on both real life and online experience not only from me, but as an entire team (our staff).
    This position wasn't about making someone a GM so they can create whatever, whenever.. It was about finding someone that was next level creative. Someone who is completely bondable with our team, and has in some way, tried to innovate or do more for UO FOREVER in ways that we have yet thought of. Drinn fit all of those, and i was still on the fence about it, until he sent me a large document of what he envisioned the UO FOREVER Christmas event should bring everyone. After seeing how detailed and well thought out the document was, i showed the rest of the staff, everyone else immediately agreed and that is what won us over.

    Some of you may think ill of Drinn because of how you see him in game. However, bringing someone on the staff goes far beyond their game play and how they play. I don't judge based on peoples style of game play and i don't rush to make decisions honestly. As i've always said, trust our decisions, we've gotten you this far, and we will take you all a lot further.

    All in all,
    I shouldn't have to explain myself for why we are going in that direction.
    That is all i need to say about that.

    GL for what you gonna do drinn. Hopefully we will see more events during euro time. I have always thought that need enough events to be hold to keep the players attractive to the shard and to the game. Hopefully the players will be satisfied to your work.

    Now to a bit more serious business. You posted yestorday evening on mIRC where I was macroing my chars and butthurt people came to kill me. Don't you dare do it ever again!! I kinda feel you just got saved with this promotion to staff.. now I will rarely find you to get my revenge for the last night, haha. :D

    Enjoy the game and gl.
