Free Realms: Summer Beach Party

Free Realms is having an in game concert on Server 1 on the Snow-hill stage June 2nd at 4pm Pacific. Free Realms Insider is having a walk party at 4 PM Pacific Time (7 PM Eastern Time) on Sunday, May 31st.

Sounds like fun but a little sad for us in Europe who will find these hours hard to make. Perhaps later on we will see some events for us, we might end up waiting until there are European servers however.

We can watch the Dares video on the Free Realms Insider website. Its an entertaining watch with a lot of in game shots. Its surprising how simular the Dares in game versions are to their real life versions. Perhaps their all American looks were considered when the male Toons were being developed.

Its not really the same as a large scale player meet-up, and the lack of encouragements to meet up has been commented on by the blogging community. I would expect to start seeing more player generated events as soon as Clubs (guilds/clans) become supported. I might even have a reason to use my 2 Million Member Party Pack at that point. I love the unshaved Ewe items they gave us. Check your claim section for your own pack, no code needed!

Watch the forums for the odd small scale meet-up. Last night Server 1 at Sanctuary there was a lot of players around chatting. It was the first time I had ran into such a large amount of players in any one area, since the second day of release.

I’ve seen a few posts about players leaving wow for the game, I can see why. There is something simular about the freedom and variety of the world. You wander along a path and find a new area with something new to look at, some new npc with a quest or a new rare exploration. I was questing in Seaside the other day and found a quest that sent me to pick up a ball down on a beach I had not been on yet. I also found a quest that puts you into two disguises, one which is not very good for the summer.

There is something about Seaside, it really feels like the sun is shining down and the water and sand are at your feet. When I portal in I swap to my orange flip flops (quest reward in seaside) and beach clothes and scamper about in the water. I’m crossing my fingers for a vendor of beach clothes to open on the sands. There is a lot to see and do. Watch out for a white whale being sighted in the bay. It might be a reference to a famous book! There is also a quest to take a look from a thatched gezabo. If you look out to sea you can also sometime see ships on the horizon as well as the colourful balloons overhead.

Since its Summertime please everyone enjoy the weather! Beach party on Server one folks!
