Topic: Adopt-A-Newb Program Launched!

Subject: Adopt-A-Newb Program Launched!

Hey everyone
I play a couple other online games and one had a program called the adopt a newb program. Basically a newb would fill out a form and send it to a person. If you wanted to mentor someone you would also send in a form. That person would then try to connect each newb to a mentor.
I'm hoping this will be yet another way to include newbs in the game and get them active.

More info, such as the actual forms will be provided shortly. I'd like to keep thus nonpartisan so prospective mentors, please try to keep your personal beliefs about the ongoing war(s) out unless the newb wants you to.

Thank y'all for reading this far and have a good day.

Interesting Idea, but is needing someone's irl name actually important for a video game?

I have seen these programs in other games as well. Great idea for Illyriad I think. The community is already such a nice one this would be a welcomed addition. As a noob to Illyriad I am trying to unbiased as possible. These programs have had success before. There is a popular MMORPG that uses a mechanic like this built in-game. They actually have a mentor program and everything.

Expect a IGM from me sometime soon. That is if you still are accepting applications. 

Thank you for taking the time to make this. An as always I appreciate the time and effort into making such posts!

About running Illyriad's first bank. Could you elaborate on this? I am quite interested to discuss that if you are willing. Love to hear how you managed that. ^_^

There's an interview I did with the devs about the bank, it should explain it :)
Its towards the bottom... look for a mass of hair in a motorhead t-shirt.

Great idea.

Although I think it is necessary to organize a psychological aid workshop for some veterans of this game.

Signs of posttraumatic psychological disorder are largely present.

Love you all
