  1. OK so this is just a short little post, but I wanted to tease something that I'll be writing about in an upcoming announcement on the website So, ages ago we were talking about what we might want to do for the next supporter tier, and we had a couple ideas flying around. Scarves, pillowcases, OC-themed dice, even some other more mad ideas, but also mouse mats! I went to explore and look for a good place to find decent mouse mats, and I found a great place. When we were talking about the OC mousemat, we knew we wanted something simple. We don't really have any artists on hand so we can't afford to go all out with something wilder, so we thought what would work is a black / dark background, with the OC logo in the corner. Just something sleek and neat that people could use at home or in their office, without it being too distracting. So I got to work. The basic idea was something like this: A simple dark background, 1 accenting decal on the top side, and the OC logo in the corner. Then I was experimenting a bit with different backgrounds, I came up with this wave design but I didn't really know what would go with it. The squiggly line was just a placeholder for an actual decal, but I couldn't come up with something that wouldn't absolutely clash with the waves. The wave design is already so busy that the decal should be super simple, and after waffling about with various stuff for a while (that I wish I'd saved to show off now ) I just scrapped that idea and tried something else. I figured I would try to add a splash of color to the background and maybe play with irregular patterns a bit. I liked the concept, but not the execution, and felt it needed a little bit of polish. So I worked on another version of this and ended up with our final version: It's sleek, it has irregular patterns, the background has a decent splash of color while the front decal isn't too garish, and the logo is smaller and fits in better than in the above version. So, thinking I was done, I decided to sleep on it. ... ... And then the next day I just scrapped everything and tried something crazy. So basically I think we're gonna scrap the above ideas and just go with that! OK that's it BYEEE

The events will last about 3 hours each day! Day 2 Start Location Lion's Arch, Field of the Fallen Day 2 Path Who can I contact about the event? EU: @Lelling - Lelling.6795 NA: Angel - AngelWriter.3652 If you would like to help organize this event, please let us know by contacting us in-game, on the forums, or by replying to this thread!

  6. What is the Community Assembly? The Community Assembly is a community-wide meeting open to everyone, where we can share plans for the upcoming future of the community, hear ideas from our members and discuss any questions, quandaries and concerns people might be having related to the community. Anyone can come along and voice their concerns, ask questions, share ideas, as well as ask for clarifications on any matters regarding the community What will be the big topics? Any topics can be brought up by members, but major topics that will be brought up by the OC staff relate to the changes in the community, what we hope they will achieve, and the future we're hoping to build for the community. We'll be discussing the aftermath of Tyria Pride 2019, as well as our plans for July and beyond! More topics might accrue over time as we get closer to the assembly! And as always, if you'd like to discuss other topics, don't be afraid to bring them up! Whether you have questions yourself, or you'd just like to come and hear what others have to say or what the plans for the future are, we hope to see you at the 4th Community Assembly!

  12. Happy birthday, Cubeo! 🎂

  13. I've been looking at the responses, and taking into account that Saturdays often have to give way to things like meetings and special events, and my Fridays are already taken, I think the best time is going to be Wednesdays ^^ However, please note that just because I'm doing it on Wednesday, doesn't mean you can't do it on Fridays & Saturdays, there are clearly enough people who are interested in those two days, so if anyone wants to start their own game night, feel free to shout here So, if you're interested, join us on Wednesday at... shall we say.. 19:00 CEST, on Teamspeak! We'll be in a group channel somewhere
  14. Not a video essayist, but one of my favorite new youtube discoveries is the channel Worldbuilding Notes! The creator is amazingly creative and talented, and the videos she makes are super interesting and definitely active those creative brain cells if you ever find yourself in a creative slump
