Ravenwood Ball 2011 Redux

Bailey and I started yesterday off with a quick stop at Blaze Shadowhorn's pre-party where he had prepared a find and seek of scrolls around his house (awesome idea btw).

I left a little early though as I got a report from Cassandra Griffindreamer that people were chanting my name in her zone, and I needed to get there ASAP. It took me about 15 attempts to teleport to actually get into the full zone, but eventually I made it in to Fallon, Kevin Battleblood . . . and a ton of other wizards.

About 30 tries later, Bailey was able to join me in the same zone . . . along with a ton of other wizards.

It was crazy insane. Just a ton of people. I had cleared a number of spots on my friends list before the party, but they went so quickly that I wasn't able to add everyone who asked me to add them.

After some party madness, I was asked to port in for a group picture with some Ravenwood Radio regulars. You can find this on Facebook now.

There were so many people I would have liked to have met at the Ravenwood Ball that I missed. Did you know that Nelson Everhart was there? I also wanted to thank Autumn Ghostwalker for the really nice note she sent me . . . also sorry I wasn't able to run into her (unless I did and just didn't realize it). Also sorry that I didn't put 2 and 2 together and recognize Anthony Sparklecaster as a long time fan of the blog and add him.

Basically . . . I missed a lot of people.

I did manage to run into Tara Darkgem though! Tara is another long time reader of the blog, and she sent over a really nice note after the party with some screenshots. Thanks Tara! It was nice to meet you.

These events are a little overwhelming for me and Bailey, but it was fun while we were there! I felt bad for Bailey because she was on the laptop, which makes it hard to type and there's added lag. The kids were too hyper last night to make it too long of a stay. ;)

Anyway, Diary of a Wizard is a really great site, and I'm happy for Fallon Shadowblade for all her success. :) This was a great event for her. Keep up the good work!

One of these days I'll have to host a TFN party. :) It will be a mandatory requirement that everyone be in skeleton illusion and jump constantly. ;-) SKELETON JUMPER ATTACK!

Happy Dueling!

Hey Friendly! Its me, Evan! I saw you there at the party and was able to talk to you a bit. I was the one who kept saying you were my hero and saying that I hated to ask the question, but could you add me? Yeah. That did'nt happen. I was wondering, maybe I could talk to you and hang out with you for an hour or two? If you don't mind, and if this does fit into your schedule, maybe we could hand out from three thirty to four fourty five eastern time, on the test realm area one ambrose test. I will meet you in the commons, and then we will head to my house, with a unicorn room! (unicorns are provided, though unicorn pets are welcomed). Hopefully, I'll see you there!

It was a GREAT time and I had a lot of fun too! Glad I saw you there, Friendly - Fallon did a fantastic job organizing everything, and the satellite parties were a great time, too, everyone worked really well together to make a really fun time for all.

That's two years in a row I've been busy on the same weekend as the Ravenwoood Ball! Grr! Sounds like I missed a really great time, though. Hopefully I'll be able to attend next year!
