Flying around on an asian shard I saw two npcs talking by a large yew tree in a sparkling room. What are they saying and what is this all about.

It describes the result of an event held on the last weekend.

The event has its origin in the story of "Tanabata"(Cf. Wilipedia). According to the story, they can meet each other only at the night of July the 7th once a year.

The young boy is Altail(originally Altair) and the pretty girl Velga(originally Vega).

"Velga's father had Altail face a test: Velga's father placed walls of foods between the young lovers, and Altail must eat all the food to meet Velga. He could at last eat all the food out with help of Britannians and met her.

....After that, they are talking lovers' talk."

Here are some screenshots of this event:

err

Wasnt the whole point of removing the EMs that programs and special events liek this werent going to happen anymore? SO there would be no favouritism towards any of the shards?

Or did this event happen on all shards?

If it didnt happen on all shards then EA/Mythic have broken their own reason for getting rid of our EMs [especially Elendrik/Jordan Jurrel who did so much for Europa]

pffffffffft typical

No, no specific items. It left us only a bit of fun.

The EM program was removed as the result of a number of things, none of which was equality amongst shards which is laughable in notion and practice. Asian shards have had an em program for a long time. I believe these are still their seers.

I play on an Asian shard along with several Americans. We never ever know when an event is happening. Like the wooden cow that was given away and selling for 3 mil, now. Why can't we be able to know about these special events, too? I think they should be posted at least on here or on the main Stratics page where we can all see it. I love Balhae. I love my friends, there. I want to play on that shard, but I also want to know when there are events.

This might not solve your questions, but I post it FYI.

Balhae belongs to Asian shards, but it is now under the control of American team. It was controled by Korean GMs a couple of years ago.

Cow event was held on Japanese shards, so Balhae & Arirang had nothing to do with it.
