person, with only five slots open. Contact a Herald if you feel you like
you wish to try your luck. The Herald will sell you the ticket, it is your
job to hold onto it unil the appointed time. The Heralds are not
responsible for any lost or stolen tickets. If there are not enough
participants, tickets will be sold at the door before the event starts.
During the event, Mocker's Tavern will be closed off from the public, so if
you want to see the action, you best hurry in before it starts.

will see you through, or if you wishing to try your luck at taking on some
seasoned pros, purchase a ticket while they are available.

Alright, there is an update for this, be sure to read it in the event list, it will be event #38. I ask that you please also remember that the start time is given in default of GMT. So if you live on the East Coast it would start at 8pm, if you lived on the pacific coast it would start at 5pm, which I know is probably inconvenient for some of you. If there are enough requests to change the time, I will. I have the event set to end right as the surge starts, so no worries about missing the surge, and I doubt it will take that long.

Easy way to read the event for further info in game use: event read 38

If that brings up a different event, use event list and look for Mocker's Tavern Poker Tourney

Alright, so because of stuff going on with stuff. I had to push the time on the poker tourney back. Its now one hour before the Surge starts. I lowered the time as well. As last time it didn't even take an hour to complete, but if its still rolling during the surge I'm not gonna force it to stop. Just keeping you guys updated.

GUYS! NOT ONLY DID I SET UP A RACE, BUT ALSO A POKER TOURNEY! COME PLAY POKER AND POSSIBLY GET A LOT OF MONEY OR LOSE SOME MONEY! Also, HERALD CHIPS! Get your fancy wardrobes that Dav worked so hard to make and they just fell off the face of the earth. Their price was lowered, so it will be easier to get. You get chips for not only the possible winning of it, but also for just trying and for every hand of poker you play through Jaloro will give you some chips as well. SO COME PLAY SOME POKER BEFORE THE SURGE!

You know you may need to go on a public awareness campaign about Herald chips because I have no idea what they are, where you get them, what you can spend them on, and if any of it's even worth it. And this is with 100+ hours spent on my character since this was implemented.

Do you guys ever use the WORTH command? They currently display there, but I could have it show even at zero.


Code:
You are carrying 191248541 gold, with 1000000 gold in the bank.
You have 60 taijis of [KEEPER].
You have 0 chips of <HERALD>.
You have 107431 relics of <MYSTIC>.

I use it all the time. But until I finally got the chips, I never knew they existed.

A large part of the reason no one's been using chips is because heralds haven't been active until recently; you only gain chips from poker or during herald events. The things you can buy with them are also largely RP-oriented (tickets to more herald events, wardrobe, custom-tailored clothing). The two current shopkeepers that stock chip-currency items are Noldo and Peaches (the seamstress) in Seringale. I'll take the blame for wardrobes never getting popular after they were created because I originally set the price so high no one in their right mind would buy one; this has been reduced. I'm open to suggestions for getting/using chips but we should move that to ideas forum.

How about trading chips to personally hire Heralds for "private sessions"? I would be interested in that Wink Wink Wink

Thanks for the feedback.

You'll now (in next release/reboot) see Herald and mystic currency with the WORTH command even if you have 0.

Code:

You are carrying 652 gold, with 0 gold in the bank.
You have 0 chips of <HERALD>.
You have 4 relics of <MYSTIC>.


Vanisse is also working on having mobs introduce you to chips through interaction.
