Rift Warfronts Guide – The Black Garden

The Black Garden is one of the Warfronts available in Rift Planes of Telara. This is the first Warfront you are able to participate in as a low-level player.

If you are not yet familiar with them, Warfronts are a lot like Battlegrounds from World of Warcraft. They are instanced PvP-only mini-games where teams of players (both random and arranged) queue up to do battle against the opposite faction.

By competing in Warfronts, players can earn favor (used for PvP rewards), experience points, and faction points. The Black Garden in particular offers faction points for the Caretakers (Guardians) and the Moribund (Defiant).

Once you have queued for a Warfront, you can go anywhere you want in the world and will be alerted when the queue is ready.

Once you are inside The Black Garden, the premise is fairly simple. There is a publicly displayed score for each team, and the first team to 500 points wins. Most of your points will be earned by carrying a flag, called the Fang of Regulos, which spawns in the center of the map.

Players can capture this simply by right clicking on it and after 1.5 seconds they will pick it up. Once a player is holding the flag, his or her team will begin earning points. Players can also earn points (albeit very few) for defeating other enemy players in combat.

However, there are two caveats to this. First of all, the player who is holding the flag takes damage over time. This increases considerably as time goes on, and once you pick up the flag there is no way to drop it. Eventually, you will die from damage. This prevents a single player from holding the Fang of Regulos for the entire game.

However, there is another facet to this game as well. The closer you hold the Fang of Regulos to the center of the map, the more points you get. If you run the flag far away from the center towards your base, you will only earn 1-2 points per “tick”, whereas if you hold the flag in the center of the map you will earn 6 points.

Since you play to 500 points in The Black Garden, this is actually a lot of points. This encourages players to stand in the center of the map with the flag which makes the game a lot more exciting than your typical capture the flag type of PvP game.

Nanovor – One of the Best Free Online Multiplayer Games of the Year!

In August 2009, one of the best free online multiplayer games of the year was launched. Nanovor is unlike anything seen before. A turn-based strategy battle game with hundreds of unique and interesting creatures and several awesome battle animations. Nanovor is not only the name of the game but also the name given to the creatures used within the game.

And one of the best part is… It’s free! That’s right, anyone can download the game from Nanovor101- the definitive site for building strategies, organizing battles and entering Monthly tournaments for a wide array of prizes. Sounds like one heck of a deal!

When you start the game, you are given three alpha Nanovor. Nanovor at the very basic level. You can then immediately enter battle and begin earning badges that give you rewards that allow you to evolve your Nanovor into stronger creatures. For a Free online multiplayer battle game, that’s pretty good!

Of course, if you really want an edge, you can pick up Starter Kits, Nanocash cards, and various other accessories from your local Toys R Us or Best Buy. Nanocash is an in-game currency that allow you to buy booster packs containing Nanovor and the Ems(Evolution Modules) Necessary to evolve them.

You can also purchase a device called a Nanoscope that allows people to transfer their Nanovor into the device and directly battle with their friends. It also serves as a means to earn ‘jolts’ by playing minigames. These jolts can then be used to boost the stats of any of your Nanovor creatures above the normal level, making them stronger, faster and more durable. You can even purchase special cartridges that allow you to battle against the Nanovor sensei and their own swarms.

Risk Taking, Risk Avoidance & Risk Management

Only a few years ago my approach to business was very much along the lines of risk avoidance. I didn’t want to take risk, not at all.
In the last few years I have spent more time than ever with risk takers. Talking and meeting with these people has been, and continues to be, extremely stimulating. Through conversations I realised that, despite my previous perceptions, there was an ounce of entrepreneurship within me. In fact, not an ounce but a seed and like all seeds it needed nurturing to grow. I have been focussing on this ever since and channelling my energy and time toward this.
One key skill that I realised I have is that of risk management. Through avoiding risk for so long I have a great eye for identifying risks in the first place. What is different now is that I want to take risks.
Risk is stimulating and challenging. It breeds uncertainty which takes us back to challenges again. I see more and more that;
[a] taking risk is an absolute necessity in today’s world. There are far too many people out there competing with you. They are not just in your geographic location, they are global.
[b] taking risk can certainly reap rewards in much the same way that gambling can. Few people though want to gamble.
[c] the role of the Risk Manager will be key to all organisations from start-up to global. It’s not the traditional risk manager role though. This is about the literal translation – managing risk. To be explicit, it means that you need to take risks and mitigate them where possible and monitor them closely where not.For me there are few better environments to work in other than this. Let’s take risks, let’s move fast, let’s get up quickly when we fall and not slip on the same banana skin for a second time.We will all need to take risks in the future as we become more and more globalised. We’ll work with people we haven’t met before, in countries we’ve not been to. What I like immensely about this forthcoming change is how traditional project management and programme management – which I have been involved in for years – is going to change dramatically.
Management style will need to be far more innovative and creative as a direct result of your options for resourcing a project and delivering it become limitless. True project managers will need to have the fundamental skill of team building (search and selection if you prefer) and collaboration. Online communities will prevail, communities of practice, project level communities, client level communities etc etc. I’m looking forward to working with Entrepreneurs and managing teams in this new environment greatly, not all will feel the same way.

Casino Bonuses

No Deposit Bonus

When you sign up for an account with a new casino they often offer incentives including this No Deposit Bonus. What this bonus offers is a chance to begin playing without having to put an initial deposit into your account. Forms of the deposit may vary from casino to casino, for example, one casino may offer a certain amount of credit to start with usually $10 or less, others offer free spins where the player takes all the winnings if there are any, some casinos match a players initial bet usually about 100% or offers a deposit double where if the player made an initial deposit of $55, $110 would actually be the available balance. Whether the casino offers free minutes, free spins, cash bonuses, matches or doubles, this is a bonus that only first time players get to benefit from and it’s well worth it. Some online casinos offering No Deposit Bonuses are the Atlantic Lounge, Intertops Casino, Zodiac Casino, Pantasia Casino and Riverbelle Casino, among others.

Reload Bonus

This is a bonus offered to existing players at a casinos poker room. The bonus is similar to a sign up bonus where the House offers a player a fixed percentage payment depending on the player’s deposit. The amount that each casino offers varies but it is usually between 15-20% of the player’s total deposit and is typically up to $100. These bonuses are made in a marketing effort to get existing money players to deposit more money into existing accounts. Reload bonuses have many strings attached in order to cash them in but it’s a bonus that is offered not just to the dried out account but the regular returning players as well.

High Roller

The term high roller is commonly used to describe a person who likes to bet high or in other words, lots of money. In honor of these high rollers, casino houses created High Roller casinos for the big time players. These top-notch casinos are offered by most casino houses and offer a luxurious gambling experience. Players who like high bonuses and aren’t conformed with the regular $20, $50 and $100 casino bonuses usually offered will enjoy these High Roller casinos. Playing in these casinos is like flying first class. Everything from the operation of the casino to the manner that players are handled will make the player feel like a VIP.

Extra Bonus

This bonus is offered in certain casinos after reaching a determined amount of money in an existing players account. It is a way of rewarding the player for the money they put into the site.

Referral Casino Bonus

This bonus is an incentive bonus offered in most online casinos in order to gain more cliental. This bonus usually offers the existing account holder a fixed bonus for referring a friend to their site. After the player’s friend signs up for an account with the online casino and makes an initial deposit, the casino will then reward the existing player. Although many casinos have a fixed referral bonus amount, some may offer a percentage of the referral’s initial deposit.

These are only some of the bonuses offered by online casinos. To find out what bonuses your favorite casino offers make sure to visit the site and read through their offers.
