An honesty panel (minimal bribery involved) in the chat room oversaw the following results of the draw:

First place prize to: Nicohlas
Second place prize to: Nicohlas (who clearly paid proper tribute to the dice gods this morning)
Third place prize to: recoveringgeek

The remaining participants will be able to take 'next pick' from the prize list in the following order:
Karmic
Seraphie
Audaine
Cordae
Dassalya

I'm going to handle choice through PMs. First PM will go out to Nicohlas, and I'll send the updated list of prizes to each person after your predecessor has chosen. Keep an eye out for PMs from me over the next day or two!

Thanks again to all!

So, back in February I hosted this fund-raising raffle (as described in the original post on the thread), and we were able to raise four months of donations for the site. That covered us through the end of this month (May).

So I was thinking of holding another raffle in June! Even if we don't manage to raise four months' worth again, every little bit helps!

I wanted to ask the community, though, what you feel would make enticing raffle prizes? I can put up another 20 million credit grand prize pot, but I do want to try to have some items for at least second and third place winners again. I obviously can't guarantee I'll be able to acquire specific items, but I'm thinking more along the lines of categories of things that sound good. Rare dyes? Rare weapons? Weapon tunings? Taking all suggestions!

People can donate some things for it. I've got some Vrake Mounts and harder to get Decorations. I can spare a couple.

I think in addition to some credits, those types of donations would go far.
I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

@Imazi was so quick with the generosity that she sent me several donations before I could announce it wasn't necessary.  :grin: More proof you guys are all awesome.  :aww: So between what I was already gathering and what Imazi has donated, we are now more than good on donations for prizes at this point, and will have a nice pool of prizes for winners to pick from!

The best thing our community folks can do to help at this point is just to donate whatever you can to the fund raising for the site, and give yourself a chance to win some prizes! As with last time, the minimum donation for entries will be $5. The rules will all be the same as last time, and I'll get a separate thread up on June 1st that outlines the prizes available.
