Players are welcome to the Guk server to celebrate a special child's memory.
Almost one year ago players from all over the EverQuest II community got together to build a special playground for a young child who had terminal cancer. Today (Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 1pm Eastern on the Guk server) is a day to celebrate the memory of Ribbitribbit as well as the community who invested so much into making his day special. Here is the text from the player event posting:
Last year on March 10, and in the week before that date, Norrathians made gaming history. Over 600 unique accounts came together from servers across Norrath for one purpose. To give a very special little Froglok some wonderful playgrounds and a very special party in his honor.
For those of you who weren't involved, we started a guild and leveled it to 70 for a t3 guild hall in less than 70 hours. We not only decorated Ribbitribbitt's TT island retreat but 3 other prestige houses were donated and the t3 hall still looks spectacular.
So many of you told me stories in the days and months that followed of fellow adventurers that you had lost and of whom you had fond memories. I myself have lost a few friends along the way.
This year we want to remember the feeling of community that we gained that day. We want to celebrate not only Ribbitribbitt, but all the friends we have lost along our adventures. And we want to celebrate the friendships we have made that are still going strong. Myrose, Ribbitribbitt's mother, and I would like to invite you to this celebration.
It will be held SATURDAY MARCH 9 at 1 eastern

We welcome other servers to set up Memorials in kind
Ribbitribbitt Day will include snacks for all and a Memorial is being designed in the Lillipad Jungle guild hall off Antonica Docks. It will also include one of our celebrated Pay It Forward events. I WILL NOT be collecting Pay It Forward items in advance unless you absolutely cannot make it. What I am asking for in advance is player made books That say a little something about anyone you have known in the world of Norrath who has gone from our world much too soon for the memorial room. If I have any books, trinkets etc ahead of time it will help me make the memorial more inclusive. if there is a special item you wished place I would like to have that ahead of time as well along with a note telling me who it is for so I can place a player made book or sign next to it.
if you do not have a trinket or book but would like someone's name mentioned in one of the In Memoriam books please send Guk.Sylestia or Unrest.Savvette a mail.
My main is now on a different server but I made a new Sylestia on Guk so we can use the Lillipad Jungle Guild hall. There will be treats for all and I will have the usual bags and ammo made for all the baby toons. Crafting volunteers and coordinators are as always welcome to sign on! Any questions can be directed to Unrest.Savvette or Guk.Sylestia. Guk.Myrose isn't on as much anymore but she can answer them as well.
I look forward to seeing all of you there as I can see so many of you still have the alts you made on Guk for last years event. Bright Blessings and Happy Hunting!
