These were the two costumes I put together for the RP skit we did for Sardine’s legendary party:
We had already had a legendary staff party a few months ago, so we wanted to do something different last week for Sardine, our first guildie to get the legendary daggers.
The staff party was pretty easy because of the show that happens in Stormwind, but the dagger quest is soloed. So we decided to put on a show of our own. My husband wrote a comedic skit that takes place between Wrathion and Sardine.
During the skit, Sardine must defeat Chat’mog and the Crazy 88s. We performed this fun part where the skit notes, pairing Sardine with a healer just in case (he had to win). He took on the Crazy 88s first then Chat’mog, just like the movie Kill Bill.
We were going to hold the party in Gurubashi Arena in STV, but some of us were phased because of the Zandalari quests. So we moved the party to Nagrand Arena.
Here is the text:
[Wrathion flys in]
[Rogue]: /e surprise
[Wrathion]: The Red Flight’s hero has arrived.
[Wrathion]: Just as expected.
[Wrathion]: You came looking for an egg. I bet you did not expect to see me here in its place. You should be ware of things you seek but don’t understand mortal.
[Rogue]: Well, not really. You see I was supposed to be looking for an egg, yeah. But the chick up there in the Highlands said something about it being over in Gilneas somewhere… and about some guy…
[Wrathion]: /e [Rogue] curious
[Rogue]: I think she was really wanting me to whack an ex or something… anyway… I was on my way over there.
[Wrathion]: /e impatient
[Rogue]: But, thinking about eggs made me hungry. And, this place was on the way. I really didn’t..
[Wrathion]: Yes, yes, yes. Very well. You’re here. And you have pointy things in your hands. I’m sure you’ll do what is necessary.
[Rogue]: For who?
[Wrathion]: For me.
[Wrathion]: Can you just shut up for a minute and let me finish?!
[Wrathion]: /e contempt
[Wrathion]: /e breath
[Wrathion]: As you know my father is none to pleased to know of my freedom.
[Rogue]: /e confused
[Wration]: /e @[Rogue] glare
[Rogue]: /e embarassed
[Wrathion]: But my freedom WILL remain. My father may be angry. He may be insane. He may be late in his alimony payments. But he is not afraid. And he should be… very.. VERY afraid.
[Wrathion]: Of, the cost of gasoline. It’s going to be very expensive to burn down the world at these prices.. OF ME YOU IDIOT! WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
[Rogue]: Oh, I didn’t know.
[Wrathion]: Of course not. You’re just a pawn in this game.
[Wrathion]: But… while I have been here… holed up in this place… I have been plotting and devising. I have come up the means to my deliverance. The ultimate weapon against my father. And you will be the carrier of my weapon.
[Rogue]: Oh, no! I’ve already been to the priest and that was embarassing enough. I don’t want no part of any kinky stuff.
[Wrathion]: No, no. This weapon is not biological… although that is a good idea.. I haven’t thought of tha.. No, this is a weapon of steel and chaos!
[Rogue]: /e gasp An upgrade? Dude! Can I get Landslide on it?
[Wration]: Yes, a weapon upgrade. We can talk about the enchant later. But back to the subject.
[Wration]: In order to create this, I need you to gather materials for me. Things of difficult means and deadly consequences should you fail. There are still those of my kind… alive… and scheming. Servants of my father’s madness. With them there are objects that I may use to bind together… Objects that I task you to obtain. I will not be satisfied with petty thievery. Take them from the lifeless hands of my bretheren… the ones you shall slaughter in my name.
[Rogue]: That sounds like the hard way to do it..
[Wrathion]: Didn’t I say “Shut up?”! SHUT UP!!
[Wrathion]: For your task…
[Wration]: *starts slowly pacing around*
[Wrathion]: You must first face the dreaded doer of evil Ch’at Mog and defeat her army of minions.. known by their feared name The Crazy 88s
[Rogue]: /e gasp
[Rogue]: Cool! So I get a Hanzo sword for all this? That’s the upgrade? Man! That’s awesome!
[Wrathion]: No, you will have other weapons. Daggers of legendary proportions bestowed into your lethal hands! These weapons will be the most feared objects in the history of this world! By weilding them you will become legend itself!
[Rogue]: But, a Hanzo sword would be soooo epic!
[Wrathion]: And my name is NOT Hattori Hanzo! You’ll get what I make and you’ll like it!
[Rogue]: I can use a sword though… Can you make one of those instead? I’ll go Combat spec. I really would…
[Wrathion]: I said NO! You’re getting the Fangs of the Father and that’s that!
[Rogue]: /e disappointed
[Rogue]: … Yeah, ok… but a Hanzo sword would be… you know… cooler.
[Wrathion]: WELL GO FARM UN’GORO OR THE AH! BEGONE FROM MY SIGHT!! Do not return to me until you have defeated the dread Ch’at Mog and her Crazy 88. I demand a tribute of her scruffy toe lint as part of the materials I need to craft your weapons.
[Wrathion]: I shall teleport you there. Be wary the Ch’at Mog is fierce… and looks even fiercer with all that mogging. Don’t be taken off guard.
(PVP battle with Chat’mog and the Crazy 88s)
…. later …..
[Wrathion]: So… you’ve brought the toe lint as I had asked…
[Wrathion]: And you’ve brought somes toes along with it.
[Rogue]: Yeah… sorry about that. It was kinda hard to see in there.. and blood was kinda all over the pl..
[Wrathion]: /emote pops a toe in his mouth for a snack.
[Rogue]: /e gasp
[Wrathion]: Tasty! I’d forgotten I skipped lunch.
[Wrathion]: Anyways, excellent work, yadadada, and all that good stuff. You’ve proven that a single skilled assassin can strike a decisive blow where a whole army may fail.
[Wrathion]: Yeah, ok, take your legendaries and get out of here already!
Here are some screenshots of the event.
I will be posting details about the Wrathion and Chat’mog costumes later this week!
In my previous spring party post, I did not mention the outfits I wore…so here they are!
Chatmay is my main as well as guildleader. She wore:
If you don’t have the Spire weapon, you could substitute the Dreamseeker Dandelion offhand.
Then there is Druid Gaga, our guild mascot. Her spring party outfit used yet another stand-out helm- this time Stylin’ Purple Hat.
The outfit also included:
Here is another picture of the Druid Gaga outfit at the party location:
When I was young, we always had a school field day with races before the end of each year.
I decided to use that idea for our 2012 guild spring party. I held the event in a wide-open space in Mulgore. One of our events was a relay race.
In order to do the relay race, I had to assign the attendants into three teams of three. I gave out colored shirts to each player- red team, white team, and purple team. These were all crafted by my tailor. Each player had to take off armor if needed so their shirt was showing.
Each team had a captain, and the other teammates lined up behind them. The team captains were each given a throwing item that had to be tossed to each team member (and to me at the end). These items in game could include Happy Fun Rock, Voodoo Skull, or Small Paper Zeppelin.
We had two judges stand on either side of the starting line, and I stood at the turning point, which was a large tree:
The red team won first place, and each team member was given a prize.
Children's week, Fire Festival, guild, guild event, Hallow's Eve, holiday boss, holiday event, Lunar Festival, midsummer, noblegarden, Pilgrim's Bounty, warcraft, winter veil, world of warcraft, WOW, wow holiday
There are constantly holiday events going on in WOW. There are two this month- Noblegarden and Children’s Week. Most players do a lot of these achievements on their own, but it is fun to take at least one achievement from a holiday and turn it into a guild event!
I will divide the types of holiday events I have hosted into a few categories. The first is:
GUILD GET-TOGETHERS FOR ACHIEVEMENT
This is basically meeting somewhere together to do a major holiday achievement that takes more than one player. Some examples are:
1) The Maquerade (Hallow’s Eve)- being wanded by other toons ~ see picture
2) Shake Your Bunny Maker (Noblegarden)- putting bunny ears on toons
3) Sharing is Caring (Pilgrim’s Bounty)- pass food around a table
Most of these don’t take very long (30 minutes), and it is great to knock these out without having to hunt down players that you need.
A few holidays have some PVP requirement. This is fun to do on a PVP server of course, but it’s even better to group on a PVE server if you aren’t used to PVP. Some of these are:
For Lunar Festival you have to collect coins from each zone, and for Midsummer you put out fires. To do this as a guild, you can gather up two-person mounts or just escort lowbies to each zone. Or you can group with others your level and go as a group to get each one. Here is a picture of when we took some lowbies across Eastern Kingdom one year:
Some of the holidays have a “boss” that takes five people to defeat. You can group up with others your level to que together over and over one night. Or, make things interesting and take players who aren’t max level yet (check minimum level on wowhead)… you have to travel to the entrance, but you can help them get some epics before they even max out!
So get cracking! Doing all the holiday achievements gets you a mount!
Getting a legendary weapon from any version of WOW has and still does take a lot of work! So our guild decided to throw a party for the first guildie we have had to get the Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest staff. Her name is Moodie.
My details are sketchy, but first we gathered in the cathedral area for the legendary quest turn-in. Moodie was put on a disc, and she floated upwards into the sky to a giant dragon. Then beams shot out everywhere:
Many of our guildies were in the air with Moodie on our flying mounts to cheer her on. These are the guild achievements we got:
After all of this, we landed in the cathedral area and had a fireworks show. We shot basic WOW fireworks, snake burst fireworks, festival fireworks, Dalaran fireworks, and cluster fireworks. We also laid feasts and kegs as well as my ogre pinata.
We then flew as a group to dwarven and trade areas to cheer on Moodie.
Thanks to everyone in my guild who has helped with Firelands since it came out. We still have more working on the staff, but this was a moment to remember. Plus we get the companion pet now!
Well, you’ve seen my silly entry for the Holiday category… what else happened at <The East Kingdom> Fashion Show- 2?
Mirahna was back to win, and she did win three categories including best color theme. This outfit was in red, plus she performed with all her mounts, pets, and companions:
For best NPC in the Game Costume, we had Margause dress up as Ysera. It was an awesome costume, and she rode away on the new dragon mount:
We also had some guys participating in the show. Picorian won best Faction Representation category as “Alliance.” He had a blue helm on with it, but he has it hidden in this picture:
I won’t post a picture of the outfit, but besides Holiday category I also won Profession Category by dressing up as Inspector Chatmay. goblin engineer. My performance included: using Mithril Mechanial Dragonling, Goblin Construction Helmet’s field, High-Powered Flashlight, Goblin Rocket Boots, a frost grenade, and my belt’s invisibility field.
I was edged out of one of the final categories, Best Showmanship, by Mildread. Based on several cute costumes and funny dwarf performances, she carried home the prize. This is her as a Pygmy Overlord:
If you are interested in hosting a fashion show yourself, here is the video I made of the categories we used for this one:
Thanks to everyone who participated!
OK so Halloween is long over. But I had some Halloween-ish fun with a category for last night’s guild fashion show.
The holiday category required that you wear at least two pieces or more of holiday attire. I didn’t want anyone to have the same costume as me, plus I was coming up with silly ideas…so I paired my Hallowed Helm with my Lovely Red Dress to make ~ HEADLESS CHATMAY!
I then googled “Headless Horseman story,” where I found the original text to “Rip Van Winkle & The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving. I skipped down a few paragraphs and used some of that text to rewrite the story. This is what I came up with and told in a spooky voice on vent:
The dominant spirit of Stormwind Hollow and seeming to be the commander-in-chief of all its powers is – Headless Chatmay.
She is said by some to have been going on a hot date when an orc spy killed her and carried her head off as a cannon-ball…
(I threw pumpkin heads at four audience members)
Her haunts are not confined to the hollow but extend at times to the roads and even Northshire!
She apparently was buried there and rushes through the night in a hurry to get back to her grave.
(I summoned pumpkin soldiers and rode off on my warlock mount)
Here is a picture I made of Headless Chatmay. I kind of cheated by making it in Gilneas, but it was daytime and I wanted a night-time or spooky look to it:
More fashion show coverage to come!
Casual/social horde guild <Radical Dreamers> on Eonar started a contest yesterday that is still open to anyone who wants to partcipate… the first person to level a toon to 85 wins! The prize is 2000g PLUS fast flight!
The GM toon is Ushiko, a Tauren Druid, “Dreamweaver” rank. The guild’s name is after a song from the 80′s from an old game called “Chrono Trigger.” The ranks are named after other songs with the word Dream in it. New members are “Little Dreamers” and the next step up, member 2 is “Day Dreamer,” while member 3 is “Dreamer;” all songs from different eras. As for raiders…they are “Dream Raiders,” which is a song from an anime.
The contest is being held to increase membership but also for a fun way to get new alts leveled. The guild consists of 97 alts and around 20-25 actual members. Many are female. Guild level is very close to 10. It has gotten that high very quickly, and they are hoping it will move on up just as quickly once we get more people in the guild. According to officer Roseshadow, once you make 85 you are under no obligation to stay in the guild. You can transfer to your favorite server, but they hope you will stay around.
The rules are simple- your toon must be 25 or lower and you can use dungeon runs, PVP, or whatever gets you to 85 the quickest. However, absolutely no BOAs nor recruit a friend can be used. Enchants and gem are allowed.
There are also prizes for 2nd and 3rd place as well as all participants:
2nd place – A full set of 8 Raptor mini-pets
3rd place – A full set of Winter Veil pets
Participant – to be determined
Here are some names of contacts for the guild:
GM- Ushiko, Steerah, Minoah
Officer Roseshadow, also Angel
Officer Maev and many other toons including Ripcar
Officer Cookie- Evilcookie, Mootherudder, Oreo and Cookies
Good luck Dreamers!
Those of you that have read my blog the past year have seen articles about the spring, summer, and fall guild parties. So here is my latest installment, <The East Kingdom> Winter Guild Party, held last night on Terokkar!
I summoned everyone interested in attending to K3 in Storm Peaks. I thought the snowy zone would work well with the theme. We laid down a Brewfest Pony Keg of beer and a Dalaran cask of red wine. (I just discovered these casks in Dalaran the other day, and this one serves 25 people!)
After a few drinks, we did a winter outfit contest. Several of us had on similar or the same robes, but Mtdewme won with her Glacial Robe and matching blue helm. The prize was 500g plus Authentic Jr. Engineering Goggles and a Red Wine Glass offhand.
I had two toons at the party, Chatmay and Ellenoria. Chatmay wore all white. I put White Swashbuckler’s Shirt under Mooncloth Robe to make the robe look long-sleeved. This shirt seemed to be the only true white-colored shirt in game. The rest were all kind of dirty-white. Not shown in the picture, but I also had my Baby Blizzard Bear out.
Ellenoria is usually at parties as our mascot, Druid Gaga, but she was kind of chilling last night with her moose horns. Here is what she wore:
We then went to the minefield nearby to try for the Mine Sweeper achievement. After attempting this achievement for a while with guildies blowing up everywhere, we finally had one guildie get the achievement. He won a Teldrassil Sproutling companion pet. I filmed this on FRAPS and hope to post it here on the blog in a few days.
The other game we played was Snow-ball. It was a version of paintball with snowballs. You had to be the first to hit 10 others with your 10 snowballs to win. I gave everyone time to hide, then we started. You could not hit the same person twice in a row. This game ended quickly, so I might have to think of a way to make it harder for next time. We had a tie, so both winners received a companion pet or gold.
After the party, we all went and did Naxxramus-25 with nine people to get achievements. It was a fun night!
