Red is Dead ~ Felucca adventure on Origin shard, March 27, 2015

March 31, 2015 By: Larisa Category: Origin News

The citizens of Origin were called together by a man named BORDAS….he came to us with a story.
“Many years ago, my band of evildoers went into Trinsic and raided the city. During that invasion we kidnapped the kings blacksmith Burke and have kept him a prisoner ever since.
But…my group of bandits have revolted and have decided they want to release him. I want them dead and am out to replace them with loyals. Are you willing to battle and keep my prisoner from escaping?”


Raising our weapons in agreement, we headed to Fel to seek out these bandits….

What we found was…a little more then we expected.


I didn’t see any bandits…but there were a lot of dragons wandering about….as well as war between reds and blues…



Having our hands full battling the mighty dragons and evil players, the bandits took the opportunity to sneak off with the prisoner.


Recapturing Burke, the kidnapped Smith of Trinsic, proved to be futile
for now, but the Red Is Dead (RID) fighters showed their superior talents
in PvM and PvP.  As one survivor stated “it was a BLAST”!

Thank you
to Pangu, Origin Advisor and SS for the pictures.

[EM News] An Explanation for My Absence

May 12, 2014 By: Larisa Category: Origin News

Dear Origin,

I wanted to write you all to let you know that I have not left you, or the EM program. I am still here and still, mostly, alive. However, this is one of the times where that annoying thing called real life has dealt me a bit of a bad hand.

I’m currently engaged in a priority one customer project at work. We hit a critical issue with one of our customers and I have been leading the team to try to resolve it. I’ve been working over 80 hours a week for the past few weeks and don’t see that changing for at least the rest of this month. I’m seriously not exaggerating when I say if I’m not sleeping, I’m working on this project. I’m eating my meals in front of the computer trying to sort through and straighten this out.

Unfortunately, it leaves very little time for family and no time for my Origin family currently. I promise you, I have not left you and I will be back in holding events, telling stories, threatening to cook things and just generally enjoying you all just as soon as I can. For the time being, however, I have to take care of this. I’m hoping to have it wrapped up by the end of the month, or, at the least, in a good enough state that it won’t require all of my waking time and energy.

A good flamestrike spell wouldn’t go amiss if anyone has one to spare…a time travel or “slow time down and let me catch up” spell would be nice too…

With heartfelt apologies and a promise to return as soon as humanly possible.
