I've always been jealous of Bendir's ability to lock their gate. It just gives me such a cozy feeling.
Same as Myon's mythal back in the day before everyone knew how to bypass it.

I like the feeling of getting back to town and actually feeling a bit safe. At least if it's a little racial settlement, like Bendir used to be (only halflings) and Myon.
+1

I really like the Mythal of Myon, and that it forces a racial-alignment-non-evil community -- granted the community of Myon is not as strong as in years past, but if the day comes that the Mythal goes away, I will be very blue.
On the other hand, the RP of the server and that of elves will be vastly improved as well as the settlement being much more popular.

Myon used to be jam packed of Elven players. And I recall at this time, towns like Guldorand were a veritable ghost town with a tiny fraction of people overall playing there. Other settlemetns got huge facelifts, and it drew (and continues to draw) giant player bases as their hub... giving cause for people to adventure elsewhere, has swelled other hub population as they are more excellent adventuring hubs.

Myon... I am sad to admit... has suffered by a lack of content at it's doorstep. It is in a great central location, but the systems in place to support adventuring players just aren't there.

So as the dedicated playerbase moved on, or left the server, Myon has been a hard-sell to get folk to come.

Just today I did RP with 2 elf players who's characters both admitted that they don't like Myon because it feels cold and distant.

Elves don't need a new settlement built elswere... Myon just needs better PR. ;)

I do think that settlements such as bendir and myon tend to stagnate due to the restrictions imposed by their nature & the players invested in maintaining that status quo.

I'd enjoy seeing something that opened myon to more people. Perhaps an event or plotline could take place which would result in such an ending.

Arelith Forest geography has a big blank spot in the center of it. Myon in ages past used to have lots of foot traffic, as folk would journey past it to while traveling back before the server was flooded with source/destination portals.

The location of the New Guldorand City high in the mountains... I am not understanding why the floating city of Myon just didn't MOVE to the Skull Crags... and then the new Guldorand Fortress? that becomes the Myon Stronghold that is BELOW the floating city of Myon.

The portal at the Temple of Silvauns can stay exactly as it is... as a portal that takes ELVES to Myon (Now located in the mountains)

And that big empty blank spot in the center of Arelith Forest (that is under Myon) can become a forest again instead of a deadspot.

Solved with the rename of the Fortress of Guldorand to the Fortress of Myon.

C'mon Evermeet... throw your IC support your elves of Arelith! Use your magic to move the floating city inside Arerlith forest to the the Floating City in the Mountains of the Skull Crags!
