Feel free to give examples of how it'd be more refined!

I appreciate any and all feedback in regards to this event. I am currently pondering if I should run this as something monthly or so together with the Marauders and possibly some tauren/troll, but with a limited amount of spots for participants (so we don't end up doing it ALL night).

((Lovely! I really enjoyed the read :) ))
This is a really nice initiative, that must've taken time to create and write out. I appreciate the notion of orcs usually locking themselves around a specific spot. Perhaps we're simply stuck in those times when we used to be smaller and thus needed to focus more heavily into an area of an area. Your map of the crossroads is ace, and perhaps this can be used as a nice foundation for future events to not be hosted on one specific spot all the time. This also opens up for more fresh thinking in regards to other locations we use, such as Garadar, Razor Hill etc.

Very nice pictures (as usual), Grunnak! Loved the sneaky one. Hope to see the one about Sadok that I've heard rumored about as well!

((Such lovely stories you write! I really enjoyed reading them. The descriptions are very captivating and you've got a nice flow throughout the entire thing. Usually when stories are this long they can become a tad dense from time to time, making it difficult to read it all at once, but I think yours are relly nice and the paragraphing is really good.

Hope to see more! :) ))
I'm taking a break from arranging RBG's every week, but I will pick up on it again when MoP hits with its new season gear. And I think what Koz meant is exactly what Groshnakk said. The hardcore players already have their stuff, so it should be a good time for people who aren't already in full cataclysmic.

When I've led I haven't been dishing out firm tactics. What you need to do is have someone calling out targets, try to have appropriate addons and someone who's not afraid to now and then give a firm command. Just pick the one with the loudest voice. ;)
Event Planning / 22/4 Dueling tournament

Dueling tournament
22/4, 20:30

This is a tournament intended for the fun of all, and for everyone to get the possibility to test their mettle in our very own self made arena environment. The tournament will be held between two guilds: Orcs of the Red blade and the Shatterskull Marauders. The fights will be 1v1 and held as a /duel-contest.

There will be prizes beyond the honour of winning. The winner will recieve 1k gold, whilst second place will recieve 500 gold and third place will recieve a prize of 250 gold. IC'ly these prizes will merely be mentioned as a "gold prize" as the value of IC coin no doubt differs from what players carry.


The rules are fairly simple.
a) No healing specs.
b) No CD's over 9 minutes. Bloodlust/Time Warp/Ancient hysteria are not allowed.
c) Professions are allowed.
d) Potions or bandages are not allowed, nor is standard food or drink during the actual fight.
e) Stealthing for more than 30 seconds means you give up.

These rules may be changed upon the convenience of those arranging the tournament.

How do I sign up?

You simply talk to me (Morgeth) and add your name here in this thread. Reason I am taking sign ups for this event is to make the match-making easier. I'll allow any level. If your gear is very poor in regards to PvP (for example no PvP gear at all) feel free to state so, and I'll try to make the match making fair to you, but I can't promise that you won't immediately face off with that Garrosh wannabe that's been grinding cataclysmic gear since the last patch hit.

In short: Write your name here if you wish to compete in the tournament. If you don't, then show up for the event itself and cheer/boo on your favourites!
Odds & Ends / Ideas Concerning Honour
April 10, 2012, 04:18:50 AM
A note pinned onto several notice boards within Orgrimmar..

"Lok'tar ogar! Victory or death - it is these words that bind me to the Horde.
For they are the most sacred and fundamental of truths to any warrior of the Horde.
I give my flesh and blood freely to the Warchief. I am the instrument of my Warchief's desire.
I am a weapon of my Warchief's command.
From this moment until the end of days I live and die - For the Horde!"

These are words upon which entry into the Horde is granted. As such they lay the foundation for our ideals, and the structure upon which our society rests. It falls upon the orcs to make sure that these words are not forgotten, and that their meaning remains clear.

But orcs have been divided, made different by the flow of time and the experiences brought along with it. Walking amongst us are the veterans, who remember a time before the corruption, when our old Homelands were green and our blood untainted. Also with us are the camp bred orcs, that were born into a life of misery, devoid of meaning or purpose. War ties us all together. Through its bitter defeats and sweet victories we have been forged into the race we are today. Our resolve is undeniable, and our strength immense. Dwell not on our differences, but take heart in that we are all one. From the bowels of Orgrimmar and out into the vastness of the wilds; we are all orcs.

Fear is and has always been a useless ally. It will not protect you; awareness and preparation will. Do not waste time or strength upon matters that lie beneath you, but continue to strive for that which make a difference for our race as a whole. Do not claim to be an orc of honour if you do not actively pursue it. Honour does not come cheaply, served amongst strangers in taverns at night. It is earned through effort, through blood and hardship. Honour becomes yours when you fight for it, each and every day. Once earned it will not stay at your side like a dog, so let tomorrow's actions ring just as true as those from last night. Never let others forget that you are an orc, and as such you will not succumb to weakness.

Our lives are often ruthless, as the Horde demands of us. But let those lives be spent as a blade for our people. We should kill our enemies without hesitation, never lock them up within dungeons for amusement. This is below us, and most certainly a waste of precious time. Let our allies know when they deserve our respect, and let them equally know when they do not. Wonder not what power dwells in the shadows, for we have stared into its abyss and cast it aside once and for all. Do not let the axe of Grommash Hellscream to have struck without reason. The spirits and ancestors honoured us with their actions in the past, but now we must honour them in turn with our blood, our sweat and our determination. Do not look for signs written in the sky, or the sands we walk upon, but take action into your hands and join with your brothers and sisters to create a better future for all.

Do not forget who we are. Uphold the honour of the orcs.

- These are the thoughts of Shazula, new blood of the Red blade tribe as recorded by Urthak, shaman of the Warsong Clan

This song made me think of Morgeth for some reason.

Oh, eh. Warning for some harsh/dirty language ;)

I paid 700 swedish kronor for mine, which is a collector's edition and that price is what one usually pays for CE's here. DLC was included in mine.
