THERE ARE NEW UNLOADING GUIDELINES FOR VALDAY:
FENCERS can check in at Main Troll, then you will be pointed to a doorway off the Fencing Hall to the outdoors, where you can unload/load after you check in. Please don't carry a big load or drag a bag/cart of armor through the doors to Troll; the doors are new and the facility does not allow ANY loading or unloading through the doors at Main Troll or the back/Merchant entrance. The facility has signs posted to that effect, but we have noticed hundreds ignoring this. Please don't jeopardize our use of the site.
HEAVY fighters should proceed to the back of the site, directly to Express Troll off the Armored Combat/Heavy Fighting Hall. Heavy fighters should check in at the Express Troll, and THEN go get their stuff to bring in, through the designated doorways.
POPULACE are requested to enter either at the Main Troll OR Express Troll. Check in, and THEN go get your stuff, please. We are hoping this also alleviates a lot of congestion at Main Troll and Express Troll.
Anyone seen coming into the Merchant Hall with a fighter's kit or big armload of personal stuff will be requested to go to either the Fencers' unloading area or the Heavy Fighters' unloading area. Pulling a cart or heavy armload into the Merchant Hall adds congestion and we need to keep the aisles and walkways clear. There are signs posted by the site at the back entrance that it is NOT a loading/unloading area. Please respect this for us.
