Sigil Games Vanguard Community Event
October 7-9, 2004
San Diego, CA
Sigil Games hosted a very small, very elite, community summit in late 2004 in order to solicit opinions of the community about Vanguard. The Syndicate was invited to attend the event. The offer read:
As you may have heard, Sigil Games Online is hosting a Community Summit. We allowed our community
to email us to let us know who should be invited that would best
represent them to our team. And we received a lot of emails in response!
We had so many wonderful suggestions. And after much thought and
consideration, we would like to extend an invitation to you to be a part
of this summit. If you accept our invitation, we will pay to fly you
here from October 7-9^th . You will be able to see /Vanguard: Saga of
Heroes/ and have the chance to visit with our team.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you can make it. If you would
like to attend, please call me at (760) xxx-xxxx so I can confirm with
you and begin making your travel arrangements. If you are unable to make
it, please let me know that as well, as we will want to fill that spot
with someone else.
It is very important that I hear back from you immediately if you can
attend. I can only hold this spot open for you for a couple of days.
Hope to see you soon!
Unfortunately Dragons himself was not able to attend the event due to a conflict with other travel plans he had at the time. However, Veakari (who was The Syndicate's community manager) was able to attend and represent The Syndicate and the community. We were very grateful for the opportunity to attend and very pleased to be able to be one representative for the overall Vanguard community.
