The Weekly Link #2

The Weekly Link Week #2    We are now in our second week, I knew that I could do this! I don't have much in terms of introductions this time around, so let's not waste any time. I am still looking for suggestions on new things to place into the blog, so message away New players    As veteran's know, our rules aren't the clearest. But I would like to welcome our new players @Leoneedspienow, @Hydravion, @Xiy, @Acid, and the hopefully soon to join @Midnight_Lace to our forum. We all hope you enjoy your time here and I invite any and all to join up with them in their threads. Of course, I am always open to join in a thread with players, new and old. Just give me a message and we can organize things from there. Open Parties and Interesting Threads    Not much has changed with the open parties we have. Zandra's beach party is having the end of their scavenger hunt and the combat competition is about to start. DOn't worry if you're a new player or an experienced vet. Our gracious host has made sure that the playing field is level. If you would rather stay inside, come drink with us at Dustin's tavern meetup. And of course, one of our older players has returned and is recruiting for a guild in an open party thread.    As usual, message me if you have any interesting threads or open parties you're looking to get more people into. I'll make sure that you are placed into the next issue of The Weekly Link. Classifieds    There are still no submissions for anyone willing to or asking for help. Of course, my offer to do a gathering thread with anyone and everyone is still open. Once again, just message me and I'll organize stuff with you. Weekly Riddle    Last week's riddle was fairly easy, and as a result we have several winners. Congratulations to Ruby, Dustin, Hazado, Paghlika, Cosi, and Hestia (Apologies if you did get it and not mentioned here. I had my computer crash and didn't have that file saved.) The answer to last week's riddle was Death. Now, there is no sense in holding back if this many people can solve one of my riddles. This one will be quite difficult and I don't expect any of you to get it on the first try. There will be hints available all throughout the riddle challenge. Message me on site or on discord and I will guide you along your journey. To start your journey to the answer afar
You must find what these four letters are
The first is one of a hero
Whose name is less fantastic than zero
It contains an aliteration
With that letter being what I sanction
Next is the letter of a color, ever so pure
But also tells of riches, that we must always endure
Thirdly an animal, who rhymes with this letter
The last is a question, for small kids brains to get better Ask Neo    If any of you have those burning questions, or just weird oddities, you'd like to ask me or any of the staff just send them in. I'll pick a few of what I think are the best ones to answer and post them in next week's issue. For now, I'll offer up some advice to anyone new looking at this. Please make sure to be double checking your sentences when submitting a journal. It is the number one thing that I see missing when I am looking at new journals. Remember that your history section is two paragraphs of at least five sentences each and each virtue and flaw must be three sentences. Conclusion That's all for today, remember to send any submissions, answers, or anything else to me through the site or discord. I'm eager to see how well the blog is doing as we try to give you more announcements and details on what is happening around the site.

The Weekly Link #1

The Weekly Link Week #1    Welcome to the first ever installment of the Weekly Link, a weekly blog post to provide some out of character entertainment and news to everyone on the site. Though I know the blogs haven't been used much in the past, I am going to do my best to change that and encourage all the others on staff to start using these more. THis is still in the early stages, and any feedback you may have for the blog is welcome. Always feel free to message me on site or DM me on discord should you have questions or submissions for the blog. I do my best to keep an eye on things to add, but I'm not perfect. Without further ado, let's make our way into the meat of the blog post itself. New players    Though the rules may be intimidating for new people, we still like to bring as many in as we can. Though a short welcome indeed, please give a warm welcome to @Ryoko, @Ghost, @PintsizePrincess, @Lynn, and @Salem. Remember staff is always here to help if you have questions as well as there is plenty of people not on staff that are just as kind. As a further congratulations, you are the first to be getting shout-outs as new members in this blog. Enjoy your time here on the site. I encourage anyone who's looking for a partner to look towards these people and help bring them into our great community. Open Parties and Interesting Threads    Looking for something good to read, or just a place to party. There's always something to look forward to while you're stuck here in Aincrad. Right now we have two open party threads for anyone to participate in. The first is @Zandra's beach party thread on floor 16. Participate in a scavenger hunt, swimsuit competition, or the monster slaying party. Though the scavenger hunt is already well under way, you can still join in and try to find the rare white crystals scattered around the beach and its surroundings. Sand too coarse and getting everywhere, then why not head over to floor 3 and join @Dustin's Tavern party. Though there isn't a lot of people there right now, invite your friends and pack the tavern full of players. Drinks are half-off!   If anyone has some good threads that they think would make for an interesting reading experience, or another open party you started up, send them my way and you could be featured in next week's Weekly Link! Classifieds    Got any need for help, or looking to offer some of your own. Send in any requests that you have here and have the traffic coming to you. No cost to get in, but whoever comes first will be higher on the list. For now, it's just mine. Should anyone want to gathering, I'll take you on a nature's treasure quest so you don't have to solo it. Weekly Riddle    For a little bit of fun, How about we give you guys a weekly riddle to look forward to in these posts. I'm starting off easy, but expect things to get rather difficult down the road. Message me your answers and I'll shout out the winners in the next issue. If you second guess your answer, I'll take whatever you're most recent one is. I will respond to let you know that I have seen and recorded your answer so you know that you've possibly made it into the next issue. Some try to hide, some try to cheat But time will show, we always will meet Try as you might to guess my name I promise you'll know, when you I do claim. Ask Neo    If any of you have those burning questions, or just weird oddities, you'd like to ask me or any of the staff just send them in. I'll pick a few of what I think are the best ones to answer and post them in next week's issue. For now, I'll offer up some advice to anyone new looking at this. Please make sure to be double checking your sentences when submitting a journal. It is the number one thing that I see missing when I am looking at new journals. Remember that your history section is two paragraphs of at least five sentences each and each virtue and flaw must be three sentences.

Time to use the blogs more!

With the interest of trying to keep you guys all updated, it's time that these blogs were used a little bit more. Though your friendly staff member Neo will likely be doing most of these posts, hopefully other staff will be able to start using this more as well. My intent is to be able to provide people with updates primarily focusing on events, open party threads to look out for, and provide little tips to players. I cannot promise a perfect regularity with these posts, though I will make sure that if something is happening it gets announced as well as try to keep to some schedule of posting. This first post will be playing some catch-up, though I hope that once we are caught up there can be a few interesting things to do. Anyways, it's time that we caught up on events happening on the site. Staff Events Though many are likely aware of this, there has been no formal announcement of it. We currently have the Mysterious Murders event going on in the beginner floors section. Any thread marked with the tag "MM" is one of those threads. Though you may need to read up on what's happening, it is still perfectly fine for you to join in. Do bare with us though, as the threads are temporarily on hold in regards to their plot as the staff member in charge of it is currently away. If they are back as originally planned, the threads should be starting up again in a week or two. Party Time! We know there's nothing better than a party and here on site we have something even better, an Open Party! Though an uncommon thread type, it is always a great way to get your character out there. At the moment, we have one thread just as such. @Zandra is hosting a beach party on floor 16 and has invited the entirety of Aincrad to join in for the fun and competitions. If you get in quick, you can sign up while they're still open. Do hurry, they close soon. If you don't make the deadline, you can still hang about and enjoy watching the swimsuit competition or provide hints for the scavenger hunt. Or maybe you can cheer your friends on in the monster hunt. Remember, the only thing stopping you from making your own open party thread is your imagination. Create one and get it going and you too could be featured here. The Future of the Blog As I said earlier, I can't promise perfect regularity with this blog. I will try to keep it to at least once a week. And though this one is fairly simple, expect to see some improvements on it as time goes by. If there are ever any questions, always remember that your kind PSTs are around to help. We don't bite! If anyone has ideas for what else can be added to the blog, talk to me about it here or on discord. Once again, this is your friendly silent staff member, and I hope you all have a wonderful time here in Aincrad!
