While the historical trend is downward, does there appear to be any correlation between theme and attendance?
The East/West war seemed to bring in a lot of out Outlands, Mid-realm, and Ansteorran folks. It was an active attempt to pull in outrealmers and my impression was the response was pretty good.
Is there more opportunity to stir up interaction with Ansteorra and other Calon neighbors which might improve attendance?
For example, a number of years ago, we spoke with HE Lonely Tower of starting a friendly war (maybe one days battles or so) between Northkeep and Lonely Tower. Both use the same tower graphic, we both use red, white, black...sounds like a good reason to have a war. Opportunity for some good schtick and reason for more folks down here to attend the war. Sure we'd be on LT's home turf but I'm fairly sure we could've gotten some central Texans to come, and show the colors in exchange for a bunch of fun. JP & Jillian, and a number of others are regulars not just at Lilies.
Sure, Lilies is billed as Calontir's home war but maybe the dimensions of the box need to change. Just thinkin' out loud.
