Find a GM! – 10.04.10

14 04 2010

On Saturday we played our first game of Hide and Seek with a GM, the first 10 people to find the GM won a new skill for their pet! In a relatively short time 10 people found where that elusive GM was hiding and received their reward. Next time we’ll have to make the clues a bit harder.

Congratulations to the winners:

And a special well done to Wu, for finding the GM first in an incredibly quick time!

Check out the screenshots as players started to arrive at the top secret location, hidden away in ‘Treasure Cave’, located in ‘Dun Huang’.

Where will the GM be hiding next Saturday?
