WEDDING NEWS!

 

We are pleased to announce the following changes to weddings as of the 22nd day of Koaratos in the year 5104 (7/22/04):

  • Wedding rules have been rewritten and relaxed to fit within current guidelines! For example, you may now get thighbands, have pentagrams on your items, and use rare metals/magic woods (as long as you provide them).
  • Pocketed item rules have changed! Any items that either are normally pocketed or can be pocketed (cloaks, satchels, pouches, trousers, bodices, etc.) will be pocketed automatically! Items that do not normally have pockets (jewelry items, items that cannot logically have pockets, etc.) will not be pocketed.
  • Jewelry item rule is gone! Before you could only have 2 jewelry items, now you can use all your alter slots for jewelry if you want!
  • Wedding rings have been updated! The bonding works world-wide now, instead of realm-wide. Also, 20 new verb traps have been added!
  • Wedding couples may now hyphenate or take their spouse's last name! (There will be no charge.)
  • Wedding couples now get a one line feature alteration each!
 

THE CATHEDRAL WEDDING PLAN

The “Cathedral Wedding” (also called the Plan C Wedding) is for those who want the very best! Pick from one of five special wedding theme areas for your ceremony! The areas include: the Temple of Liabo, the Temple of Lornon, the Beach, the Ice Caverns, and the Forest Glade. Each area has four rooms, including a reception area with food, drink and music for all of your guests.

The bride and groom will be given invitations for those they with to invite to their special ceremony and reception. On the day of the wedding, magic portals will appear in all towns (Wehnimer's Landing, Icemule, Teras Isle, River's Rest, Solhaven, Zul Lugoth, Ta'Illistim and Ta'Vaalor) to transport those guests with invitations to the wedding. When the guests are ready to return, they will be magically transported back to their starting point! No worrying about catching boats or dangerous treks through the mountains!

As an added bonus to this wedding package, the happy couple will gain the ability to use more intimate command messaging in many common roleplaying verbs, such as HUG and LEAN. Over 20 commands have the special messaging that only couples who purchase a Cathedral Wedding will have access to! We will also create 18 items for the wedding couple and wedding party that you can customize however you want! In addition to the 18 items, wedding couples also receive a set of very special, scripted wedding rings and customized ring boxes.

What wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? The Cathedral Wedding package also includes a 5-day stay in your own private cottage, located in our exclusive honeymoon village!

Last, but not least, a specially trained member of our wedding team will work with you to create the wedding of your dreams! You can create custom mood messaging, custom food and cake, and more! Your wedding coordinator will go over all the details and be with you during your entire wedding to make your wedding special in a way that only we can!

Cathedral Wedding signups use our Event Signup System, allowing you to charge the “real world” cost to your current billing method. There is also an in-game fee of one million silvers, which is due on your wedding day. Only one member of the engaged couple should sign up for a ticket, but you can split the cost between members by using a Gift of Adventure!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Once you have purchased your wedding ticket, you need to send your list of 22 items (18 miscellaneous items, 2 wedding rings and 2 ring boxes) to gs4weddings@simutronics.com as soon as possible! This starts the process rolling! You will soon receive a letter in your e-mail box from the Weddings Manager, which will also explain how everything withs and what you should expect. Your list will go to a Wedding Negotiator who will soon contact you if there are any revisions needed to your requested alterations. In order to avoid having to make a lot of revisions, we highly recommend reading over the information in game using the verb ALTER.

Once your item list has been approved, your wedding will be "released" and you will then get the opportunity to choose a date! When you have chosen a date, you will be contacted by your Wedding Coordinator who will work with you on all things related to your ceremony!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. Do I need to be titled to have a wedding?
A. No! This was previously true, but this rule has since been retired! Couples of ANY level can purchase and have a Cathedral Wedding!

Q. Are there any restrictions on items I can have made for my ceremony?
A. We are pretty flexible with items, but they should be wedding specific and fall within the normal alteration guidelines.

There are a few wedding specific restrictions:

  • No weapons or armor will be made.
  • No out of genre items will be made, such as tuxedos, top hats, spiked heels or lingerie.
  • Do not request items made from rare metals or woods unless you can supply enough to make the item.

Old rules that no longer apply:

  • No thigh bands. Revision: Thigh bands are fine, but remember that these are worn outside of clothes! We do not currently make garters.
  • No items with pentagrams on them. Revision: Items with pentagrams on them are fine.
  • You may only have 2 jewelry or ceremonial items. Revision: Within your item limit, you may have as many jewelry or ceremonial items as you wish.
  • You may only have 2 pocketed items. Revision: All items that are normally pocketed (cloaks, satchels, pouches, etc) will be pocketed. You will be allowed two more pocketed items in addition to that to use on items that do not normally have pockets (boots, bodices, pants, etc).

Q. What if one of my desired items is not within the guidelines?
A. Your Wedding Negotiator will discuss this with you and give you suggestions on how to fit your items better within the guidelines.

Q. Can I have personalized wedding rings?
A. Of course!

Q. Can I have SHOW descriptions?
A. Of course! Please see the ALTER verb in game to learn everything there is to know about alteration rules, show descriptions, long descriptions and more!

Q. Can you alter some of my existing items for the ceremony?
A. Not at this time. Currently, only new clothing and items will be made.

Q. What about ring boxes? Are they part of the item limit?
A. You get 2 ring boxes in addition to your 18 items and 2 rings, which makes your item total 22 items.

Q. Can I have pocketed items?
A. All items that are normally pocketed (cloaks, satchels, pouches, etc) will be pocketed. You will be allowed two more pocketed items in addition to that to use on items that do not normally have pockets (boots, bodices, pants, etc).

Q. How about the invitations? How do they work?
A. The bride and groom will receive their invitations immediately upon choosing a date. Remember, you do not get to choose a date until your item negotations are complete! Each couple will receive a container with 50 invitations. If you need more, just contact your wedding coordinator!

There are a few important facts to be remembered about invitations:

1) Once an invitation is given to a player, that player cannot drop it or give it away. If they try to, the invitation will “poof” and you will need to give them another one!

2) During the wedding, the bride and groom can POINT their invitation at any guest who is acting out of control. That guest will be removed from the wedding, unable to return.

3) The bride and groom must keep one invitation for themselves! Everyone who goes to the wedding must have an invitation in order to gain access to the wedding portal. This includes the bride, groom and the entire wedding party, including the cleric, bard, best man and maid of honor!

4) You must remain in the wedding area the entire time. If you leave the wedding area, you will need another invitation to return. Once the wedding has begun, no more invitations will be able to be given out.

5) There will be wedding portals to the wedding in every town that transport guests to the ceremony location. These portals will close 10 minutes after the wedding starts.

Q. Can you help me find a cleric for my wedding?
A. No, finding a cleric is your responsibility!

Q. If I have a reservation for a Cathedral wedding, can I have the ceremony anywhere I want?
A. No, the invitations only work with the five areas provided for Cathedral Weddings.

Q. How big are the wedding areas?
A. Each wedding area has four rooms, including a reception room with food, dance and music! Each area also has its own picture, which can be displayed on the Wizard FE!

Here is a brief description of each area:

The Beach
Rolling waves and warm sun. This is a lovely place surrounded by wildflowers that sits high above the beach itself. The view is quite breathtaking.

The Ice Caverns
These are all underground caves with sparkling spires of ice and the sound of slowly melting and re-freezing water in the background.

The Forest Glade
Here you will find a nice balance of deep woods with the occasional open meadow filled with wildflowers.

The Temple of Liabo
A beautiful temple dedicated to the gods of Liabo, with special areas for meditation and relaxation.

The Temple of Lornon
A temple for those who prefer a darker side.


Q. For a Cathedral Wedding, will I have a place to change clothes?

A. Yes! An hour before the wedding, your Wedding Coordinator will take the bride, groom and any members of the wedding party to special dressing rooms where their items will be waiting. You can also store anything in these rooms and pick them up after your ceremony is over! Make sure to dress light and bring extra containers for presents!

Q. Can my last name be changed to be the same as my spouse's?
A. Yes!

Q. I've purchased a wedding in the past, but now want to renew my vows or get married to someone new. Is that rule of one wedding per account still in effect?
A. NO! If you have purchased a wedding in the past, you CAN purchase another one now!
