    We were toying with a different list of stretch goals for the R56 livestream tomorrow. Idea would be to take the same visual effect we used to make the Aether creatures and make weapons and decorations that use that same visual style (versus items with the sun and moon symbol). We are even thinking about making a dye that makes a similar visual effect.

    Here's what the alternative list would look like. Would love to know if you all think this list is more exciting that the original list?

    Alternative R56 Stretch Goals:
    • $10K: Sunburst Aerial Combo Replenishing Box of Fireworks
    • $25K: Aether Sword and Shield
    • $35K: Aether Lich Statue
    • $50K: Box of Replenishing Aether Dye
    • $65K: Aether Bow & Aether Crossbow
    • $80K: Aether Clock Tower
    • $90K: Aether Axe, Aether Halberd, Aether
    • $100K: Celestial Themed Wizard Robes

    I like this list more too--especially, if it is a 1-handed sword with the shield.

    I would also love to see a Table Top Lunar Rift (stone ring with particle effects and all) or one the size of the moondials.

    I can definitely say that my Guild would be far happier with these options! We have been saying since we first saw the pictures that we would love these on our gear!

    I'll take any list that puts a bow at 65k instead of 90+!

    I have to agree. i think we have enough fireworks. for the "low" items why not daggers or wands?

    I guess I will speak for the Home Decorators.....Let's have something like what is above to decorate our lots / homes. Maybe that should be the $10K item . Having that one additional deco item would help equal out the goals.

    @DarkStarr,

    unfortunately I was late for a few days and I lost these wonderful looking founder items with the sun symbol ...

    So I was pleased to get some items with sun (also moon) sign :)
    If the original list is not forgotten and available for another time this year, I would be fine, if the majority wants to change :)

    I was actually looking forward to the Sun and Moon items... I use Sun Magic... and have an alt that uses Moon Magic...

    These are good too... and I'll be supporting the game either way.

    Please make the Sword a 1-Handed blade... Most of the recent blades have been 2-Handers.
    People will be excited about the Bow and Crossbow as a likely achieved goal.
    The Aether Dye certainly seems like it might be interesting... I'm sure people would find interesting uses for it.
    What was the third weapon in the 90K line to have been? :)
    I hope the Celestial Wizard Robes are dark blue velvet festooned with silver and gold stars and moons... With a Pointy Wizard Hat!

    I think a lot of people would like the dye! Much better then a sun and moon cloak imo.

    Can't say I'm thrilled about the clock tower, though. It seems like it might just be a giant glowing eyesore.
