I’d like to direct your attention to a couple of fun PA guild events happening on Dark Iron.
First up we have the Deeprun Rave on October 28, 2005
This is being organized by the “Disciples of Divx” guild and here are the details they provided to me:
- The party starts at 6pm pacific/server time
- People can tune into our shoutcast (courtesy of Tyrun and heartwidget) for live music and announcements *details on it will be provided in the forums*.
- There will be a judged costume contest where appropriate prizes will be given out around 7pm. Prizes include a pair of shadowskin gloves courtesy of Alryc and Taynt. Skycast is donating a load of greens. Revcerberus is trying to get a whelpling to give away. There will also be cool horde pets from Gadgetzan.
- During the times when there is no “event” happening, people can chill, hang out, listen to music, get drunk, run races naked down the tram, and throw some of our 60 heavy leather balls around.
- Around 8pm, we’ll have a raffle for the gold that has been donated. As of right now we have 20g that “Annarchy”, “Knights of Arcadia” and “The Fancy lads” have donated. The Disciples of Divx guild bank will match their donation, and Orum (me) will personally donate 50g. So we’ll have at least 90g with several days to go to gather more. We think that’ll be the highlight of the rave.
- The raffle will be decided by the 3 costume judges. Who will be 3 Divx officers of high standing. We’ll be running the chat logger that Blizzard provided. The people will group real close to the judges and do a massive /roll 10,000. The logger will record the results and we’ll go through the log and find the winner. Double rollers and other cheaters will be DQed.
- We’re going to have Disciple Volunteers going around that you can say “Trick or Treat” to, and they’ll open up a trade and give you a free stack of booze or Candy. Depending on what they’re loaded up on. The other thing is that I’ve heard reports of possible large amounts of fireworks as well.
- For the most part we want to limit this party to the Ironforge side of the tram but if enough people show up to crowd that side we’ll be spreading it down the Tram as the crowd grows.
Next up we have the Naked Night Elf Race organized by another one of our Dark Iron PA guilds, the “Keepers of the Wang”.
Saturday, Oct 22
All the details can be found at this forum thread.
Essentially everyone makes a lvl 1 NE alt. The race begins at the NE starting area and we race to check points, the faster you get to one check point the sooner you start toward the next one. The race will finish in the SW kings room and the first one there gets 2/3 of all the entrance money and second gets 1/3.
So there you go. If you’re on Dark Iron I recommend you hit one of these events. They sound like a lot of fun.
I’m heading out this afternoon to pick up Shadow of the Colossus. I guess it runs in widescreen and progressive scan. So I’ll also be picking up some component cables for my PS2. I’ve never really needed it before but it seems to me like this game will be worth it.
