There is a totally awesome event happening on Threshold RPG this week and this weekend.
This coming weekend (May 29 through June 1) is an opportunity for existing players, or people who have never played before, to get more from your gaming time than ever. From Midnight on Thursday, May 29th, until midnight on Sunday, June 1st, players will earn double the normal experience points from killing stuff.
For new players, this is a great way to get off to a running start.
For existing players, this is a great time to reinvigorate your character.
In addition to this, the week leading up to the double XP weekend features nightly events from 9pm to midnight EDT. All sorts of things will happen during those times: invasions, games, special shops opening, interesting RP from special NPCs, and more. This is definitely a great time to login and check things out.
Now, the focus of Threshold is generally its Role Playing, and there will certainly be a lot of that going on during the week and the weekend as well. But for this time period, there will be a lot of focus on the PvE aspects of the game, which can be a lot of fun as well. But don't think this means the emphasis of Threshold is any less on the Role Playing. This is just a special weekend where people can focus a bit more on the PvE aspect and get double the reward.
