Since I'm sure not everyone was able to make the meeting on Thursday night, below is a transcript, cleaned up a bit, with questions and answers. 

EM Faine Morgan: as I had mentioned a while back, I really wanted to do something besides the Royal Guard
EM Faine Morgan: I wanted something for healers as well as fighters
EM Faine Morgan: I also tossed around a third option for tamers but
EM Faine Morgan: that sort of gets us down a path of where do we stop and how hard would it be to track
EM Faine Morgan: I think two will be challenging but I think I can do it
EM Faine Morgan:  we are going to start with two orders
EM Faine Morgan:  the first order will be the Order of the Tower and Stone
EM Faine Morgan:  that is the warrior/fighter path
EM Faine Morgan:  each item signifies a different rank in the order

EM Faine Morgan:  the second order, the healer order, is the Order of the Tower and Rose

EM Faine Morgan: The Orders each have a path
EM Faine Morgan:  they each start with Initiate
EM Faine Morgan:  and they each culminate at Knight Commander
EM Faine Morgan:  each has a guiding set of principles
EM Faine Morgan:  the Order of the Tower and Stone is based in Valor and Honor
EM Faine Morgan:  the Order of the Tower and Rose is based on Spirituality and Compassion

I-Throw-Things :  shard bound?
EM Faine Morgan:  Shard bound and character bound

Damia Terra :  do you have to choose the fighter path if you're a fighter?
EM Faine Morgan:  no, you do not have to choose, necessarily the fighter path
EM Faine Morgan:  HOWEVER
EM Faine Morgan:  you DO have to choose a path
EM Faine Morgan: and there will be missions specific to each path as well as joint missions


Cold Steel :  can you put the suits on a mannequin
EM Faine Morgan:  currently I don't think you can put them on mannequins but I will verify 
**Verified - the items cannot currently be placed on mannequins. I do not know if there is any plan to change that.

Damia Terra :  i know this is more paper work stuff but can we choose human rewards instead of gargoyle
EM Faine Morgan:  I don't think I have any problem with that
**Note: I will be recording human vs gargoyle so if you want the promotion items to be human and you are a gargolye (or vice versa) it is your responsibility to let me know that.

Cryptian :  so to pick a path, put name in book with path?
EM Faine Morgan:  topick a path, put your character name in a book with the path you want to follow
**Note: There is a problem with the books in the Enhanced Client. If you are using the Enhanced Client, please put your name in the By area and then just write Tower or Stone in the journal area. 

Nyre Lars and Pan I need to get an update from each of you as the book cut off your choice.

Kat Coral :  All in all very nice but I am a tamer/mage and I have no wish to join any order
Kat Coral :  What if you have no wish to be promoted but still wish to attend the event
Kat Coral :  and serve best as you can?  I consider myself a RBG.
EM Faine Morgan:  Then you absolutely can do so!
EM Faine Morgan:  no one is required to join either order, please understand
EM Faine Morgan:  all events, missions, etc are open to everyone
EM Faine Morgan:  regardless of membership in either order
EM Faine Morgan:  that is not at all what this is about
EM Faine Morgan:  I just want people to have a path if they want it
**Additional - If you do not wish to be in either order, simply do not give me a book. I will not track your attendance for promotion. This is simply intended to be another RP avenue for those who wish it.

Se'Saucy Wench :  What if a tamer ..heals, .. we have to select a path of those
EM Faine Morgan:  Se'Saucy Wench, a tamer, as well as everyone else, can pick either order either path
EM Faine Morgan:  a mage can pick the Tower and Stone and an archer can choose Tower and Rose

EM Faine Morgan:  most missions will be joint missions
EM Faine Morgan:  there are a few things I'm going to change up however with events
EM Faine Morgan:  in the past, I've been putting up four healers at the final fight site
EM Faine Morgan:  with the new system and the healer path, future fights will only have one of mine
EM Faine Morgan:  unless we have no healers on the shard...
EM Faine Morgan:  and let me throw in a caveat on that
EM Faine Morgan:  before you all decide to burn me at the stake
EM Faine Morgan:  I'm open to re-evaluate that number
EM Faine Morgan:  but I really want players on the healing path to do the healing
EM Faine Morgan:  if the healers are dead too, there will be at least ONE invulnerable NPC healer present
EM Faine Morgan:  I will monitor and put up more if it becomes necessary

EM Faine Morgan:  right now, and this is all subject to tweaking
EM Faine Morgan:  right now, the plan is twice a year
EM Faine Morgan:  I will adjust if it looks like we need to
EM Faine Morgan:  I will say the first promotion ceremony WILL be in January
EM Faine Morgan:  I think we need a good sixish months to shake this out
EM Faine Morgan:  and tweak whatever needs tweaking
EM Faine Morgan:  the first several paths are pretty easy and close together
EM Faine Morgan:  but, I'm not planning on any skipping paths

EM Faine Morgan:  so, for example
EM Faine Morgan:  let's say initiate is 3 missions and the next stage, acolyte is 7 missions
EM Faine Morgan:  if, in January, you've done 7 missions, you'd still need to spend time as an initiate (and let me explain my thought here)
EM Faine Morgan:  let's say in January, you've done 10 missions, but for the next three months, you barely make one mission
EM Faine Morgan:  so in January, you get to initiate
EM Faine Morgan:  you still have the 10 missions total "banked"
EM Faine Morgan:  life happens


Se'Saucy Wench :  Will they be all DAY times or evenings
EM Faine Morgan:  they will be mixed, they will be a lot of evenings but, I will also put in self directed missions you can do on your own
EM Faine Morgan:  weekend missions, daytime missions, etc.

EM Faine Morgan:  I will tell you this, the first level, initiate is three missions
EM Faine Morgan:  from now to January, I think that's doable by all AND
EM Faine Morgan:  I think it will give YOU a chance to give me feedback
EM Faine Morgan:  are there enough missions times for everyone to advance, etc.
EM Faine Morgan:  and we will go from there

EM Faine Morgan:  so the first step will be to choose a path, Tower and Stone (warrior) or Tower and Rose (healer)
EM Faine Morgan:  and no you do not have to do it tonight
EM Faine Morgan:  when you have decided, drop a book in the mailbox here or at the award hall
EM Faine Morgan:  with your character name you are putting in and which Order
**Note (again because it's important): There is a problem with the books in the Enhanced Client. If you are using the Enhanced Client, please put your name in the By area and then just write Tower or Stone in the journal area.

EM Faine Morgan:  alright, one more thing, as always, I'm completely open to emails and discussion on the board and facebook

Evilone :  How many of our toons can were join with ?
EM Faine Morgan:  Evilone, honestly, I don't know that I would have any way to limit your characters even if I wanted to
EM Faine Morgan:  but know this
EM Faine Morgan:  higher ranks are going to be harder to obtain
EM Faine Morgan:  so just keep that in mind

Zeke Terra :  How do you know we are here?
EM Faine Morgan:  I always record my journal
EM Faine Morgan:  and I have a hot key for all names
EM Faine Morgan:  at the start of an event, I'll do an all names
EM Faine Morgan:  if you arrive late, just make sure to say something so I know you are here
EM Faine Morgan:  and not in chat
**You will need to speak directly to me at the event/location. I will check the journal to verify attendance.

Ereal :  If we start on one character, can we transfer points to a different character we train up?
EM Faine Morgan:  Ereal, you can but they must stay on the same path
EM Faine Morgan:  same order
**Additional: It is your responsibility to let me know the change.

    You can leave a book in the mailbox at either the Reward Hall in Malas, accessed via the portal by the EM Hall in West Britain, or in the mailbox at the Meeting Hall north of Britain Moongate.
