Articles - ArticlesLooking for a way to spend some time in an evening, perhaps a tour filled with an
interesting history, and maybe even something you can do with a group of friends or perhaps with your organisation.
If so, you need not look any further. An ARK Playfield Tour may be just what you are looking for.
I am sure many of you have either been greeted by an ARK (Advisor of Rubi ka) before, maybe you have even attended a party or a wedding ceremony that they have organised or been part of. What could be more fun than spending some time seeing where they hang out when they aren't busy answering our petitions!!
The ARK Play field is one quite separated from the usual places on Rubi Ka. Rubi-kan citizens cannot just pop for a visit. Therefore, on Sunday 28th September, we (Omni-Pol on Atlantean) organised to meet with Assistant Director Yarkona from ARK Community Relations to have a tour around the ARK Play field for our organisation.
We met with Yarkona in ICC and were safely (honestly, no limbs were separated from their owners!) teleported to the ARK Play field.
We were joined by two other members of ARK - Staffing Guardian Tyrnar and Director Frostrune. The more the merrier!!
Our tour started in the ARK Headquarters building - this is the hub of the ARK
play field. It contains offices and a meeting room amongst other things.
The inside walls of the Headquarters building held some wonderful images from across Rubi ka and the Shadowlands, you can also catch a glimpse of the Ceremony Hall from the windows here.
On our visit, we were fortunate enough to be able to look into the offices as they were not in use. The offices appeared amazingly clean and orderly, and there was not a piece of paper in sight - there was a comment about dust, but really it was cleaner in there than in our organisation HQ. ARKs must be incredibly efficient and conscientious to not leave all their paperwork about!! *winks*
Office in the ARK Headquarters
On our way out of the offices, we also had a look around in the large meeting room. The room has hosted OOC RP meetings in the past that players have attended... and I am sure many other events.
From the Headquarters, we began a tour of some of the island. The island surely has some nice places for ARK to hang out ... should there be the time to do so!
We met up with Phil and had our picture taken with him
and watched him work next to the loungers
Walked up the hill to the Ceremony Hall where the ARK members hold their weekly ceremonies.
and also got to have a look inside the Ceremony Hall.
