“Moonrise” – a server wide roleplay event by Nataari

Why stop the steady stream of screenshots now – here is another round from one of the most cherished events; the Moonrise.

Leaflets are pinned to some houses of Stormwinds various districts and woodlands. Approaching one of the announcements, it is visible that the text is held both in Common as well as in Darnassian.

“Ishnu’Alah, Kal’Dorei brethren and friends and citizens of Stormwind!

Back in the past years, the Nightelves of Kalimdor have invited your allies and kinsman alike to join the old Kal’Dorei custom of the monthly Moonrise, to share your friendship and your praises to Elune. In the light of recent events, your homelands became contested, with many of you finding refuge here on the other side of the world, which was surely no easy choice for you.

Now we invite you to continue your custom, here in Stormwind, in the circle of your friends and allies. Your homelands may be far away and troubled these days, but we are all gazing upon the same moon.

Be welcome to join us on the 1st sunday of this month, and every month, by the old grove above Stormwind Harbour, to share an evening of kinship and reminisce. There will be food and drink, and Cherwina will hold the prayer when it is time to receive the Goodnesses blessing.

The festivities will commence an hour before Moonrise, and everyone is welcome! Leave your grudges and your weapons behind, and enjoy with us a peaceful celebration of Elune, of kinship and of the beauty of the rising moon.

We are looking forward to see you there!”

Phfew, I got through all 200+ I had taken. Thank you so much for the wonderful event!

Enjoy your Monday 🙂

“Prodigal Son” – a roleplay event

Here we go again, this time a roleplay event hosted by Ethan Redwood.

Thank you so much for putting it together!

It took place in Gilneas – a zone in World of Warcraft that really echoes with atmosphere- and even involved cross-faction roleplay, made possible by the elixir called Elixir of Tongues, which added such a cool aspect to it.


 

What’s it about? Well, when the Alliance and Horde left Draenor at the end of Warlords of Draenor and all the portals were closed, Ethan was left behind. When the Horde champions returned not long after to retrieve the mag’har, over 30 years have passed on Draenor in the meantime as it caught up to the present. In that time, the young hedge wizard turned into a middle aged man now older than his mother and lived an entire life in the savage world. In that time, he romanced a Blackrock orc and had a son – a half-orc named Galgar Flamehair. When the mag’har, including Galgar, escaped Draenor, Ethan stowed away and some of you had the pleasure to meet him literally just after he got back to civilization. [Point of note, this is based on the character being literally left aside since Warlords, so I decided to incorporate this into his backstory]

Galgar joined the Horde and fought for it for some time, until he was captured by the Alliance in Stormsong Valley. When Ethan learned of it, he started regularly visiting his son to try to mend their relationship. However, the half-orc would not let himself stay a prisoner, as his orcish sense of honor would not let him. He eventually escapes and that’s where you come in.

Ethan has taken to calling some of you friends after the past few events. So he’s asking you for help in finding his son and whatever troubles result from it. Because the son is a half-orc (and in game terms, a Horde character) it involves cross faction RP.

 

Here we go 🙂

“Fortune Favours The Gold!” – A roleplay event

 

Here we go again, another immersive event to enhance our joy in World of Wacraft 🙂

 

A leaflet is neatly placed on the local billboard:

‘Many races are prone to regard certain plants as omens for better or worse. Scholars mostly dismiss this as superstition, but throughout the ages there are certain plants that continuously have been connected to curious rumours across different cultures. One such herb shows golden promise. As we once again invite all able adventurers to join our leafy lectures, you have got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do you?’

 

As last time, not all screenshots are mine, since I am not able to stay until the end, but they are editted by me, so I guess that´s something! Dulvarinn was kind enough to share those, from when I am not there.

I wish I was able to write a nice recap, in the best of roleplay-ways imaginable, but I do screenshots, that´s my thing. Let´s just say, the introduction to our Guild Bank was remarkable and very unique! And we were quite lucky 😉


 

There are a lot of screenshots this time around. I blame the gorgeous horses!

First, a screenshot behind the scenes though, that made me laugh out loud.

We had to come to the aid of a few who were joining, who couldn´t come to Dalaran on the Broken Isles. A kind Warlock offered to summon them.

In one of these “I totally forgot I am supposed to be In-Character, because I am so focused on assisting, so I´ll make one of the most rookie RP mistakes-ever”– moments, I just had the Warlock place their enormous Summoning Stone/Portal thing (when did that get an upgrade?!) right in the middle of the Greenhouse, where the event is suppose to start. (For those unaware, these things are not exactly something, that Druids are fond of, that is an understatement) I think Dulvarinn said something along the lines of this never being acceptable!

Sigh, Alunaria.

But what do you say – you hardly notice it, do you?

Thank you so much to Dulvarinn for hosting the event. I do not know, how you do it, it would take me a week worth of playtime to be able to put such an event together, with all those small details, and they just keep coming! Thank you to everyone who participated, it´s been great fun and entertaining to see the personality of your characters expanding and evolving, my own included 🙂 A life of their own. Looking forward to next time!


 

Wishing you all a joyful Tuesday 🙂

“Mumbo Gumbo!” – A roleplay event

From battling vs. AI opponents and to adventuring through sandstorm and desert in search of a rare flower, which can cause quite the burn injury!

The opportunities in World of Warcraft for entertainment sure are many.

The study of plantlife continues with another immersive event 🙂


 

A leaflet is neatly placed on the local billboard:

‘Not all plants grow in verdant landscapes. Some thrive amongst scalding dunes under the intense gaze of An’she, persistently adapting to their unforgiving surroundings. We are about to examine such herb with a little help from the race that knows it best. Once again we invite all able adventurers to join our leafy lectures. Get ready for some hot stuff!’

Quest Objective: Meet with The Botany Band in the greenhouse at the Magus Commerce Exchange in Dalaran (Broken Isles) and receive further information.

 

The screenshots is a mix of my own as well as Dulvarinn´s (my early bedtime hinders me from staying until the end, shoot!)

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday 🙂

“A fungus among us” – A roleplay event

 

I hope you all are enjoying the new patch 🙂

I was lucky enough to participate in another roleplay event hosted by Dulvarinn Moonwalker.

 

A dried silverleaf adorned with moonglow ink writing is neatly placed on the local billboard:

‘It is a well known fact that the ecosystem of Azuremyst Isle and Bloodmyst Isle suffered heavily from the crash of the Exodar. Reports of an invasive fungus on Bloodmyst Isle has reached the Kirin Tor and rumours also circulate that one of the best mycologists of the Cenarion Circle has gone missing while investigating the matter. Once again we call on able adventurers to help solve the mystery.’

Quest Objective: Meet with Kuhuine Tenderstride and Dulvarinn Moonwalker in the greenhouse at the Magus Commerce Exchange in Dalaran (Broken Isles) on Monday the 18th of March at 20:00 CET and receive further information.

Roleplaying really makes the World of Warcraft feel more alive, and these events are being planned down to the smallest detail, using so many neat tricks and toys to make it such a joy to be part of.

Thank you to everyone who participated and to Dulvarinn for all the effort and passion thrown into it – it shows! 🙂

“How do you like them apples?” – A roleplay event

 

This is just me hawking my blog to post screenshots today. I was fortunate enough to be able to participate and get engaged in roleplay again – for the first time in years. I stayed up way too late, and got way too little sleep, but it was worth it.

Hosting RP events can take a lot of preparation and I am grateful for the dedication Dulvarinn showed. I got invited through an unexpected letter in the mail, and on the billboard a note was placed saying the following:

“A note with additional contact information is neatly placed on the local billboard: ‘All capable travellers with a green thumb is hereby invited to help solve a mystery regarding a special kind of apples with an extraordinary rich taste and delicacy. So far we have nothing but a few samples and a single indication to the origin of the fruit and thus we require assistance in order to investigate the matter further. The apple never falls far from the tree.’

Quest Objective: Meet with Kuhuine Tenderstride and Dulvarinn Moonwalker in the greenhouse at the Magus Commerce Exchange in Dalaran (Broken Isles) on Monday the 11th of March at 20:00 CET and receive further information.”


 

I won´t go too much into details of the whole event, after all, it was not my creation 🙂 But I took the time to edit screenshots from it, that I want to share here as a thank you to all who participated and to Dulvarinn for making it come alive. 🙂

It was such a pleasant, immersive experience.
