Area: Announcements - Note #5864 From: Tyr To: all Cc: Subj: Event aid Time: Thu Nov 3 06:17:35 2011
I've changed the way event aids work. You can now only aid an event that's in act three, doing so will submit a log to the event owner similarly to how thwart requests work, and as with thwart requests the event owner can observe/broadcast for that RP. The event owner can then complete their event even though it's only in act three with event complete (your name) <number> which will give those who participated in the aid RP some fame and align.
The event owner can participate in the RP if they so choose, although you cannot aid yourself.
The goal here was to change aid from an honestly pretty useless system into something that offered people of the same alignment as event runners similarly exciting RP opportunities as those afforded to those that oppose them, as well as opening up the possibilities for people to RP out their events more.
As always please report any bugs/weirdness.
