Our guild hosts occasional events in game that are just for fun. On St. Patrick’s day, we held "The Great Gnome Race". Guild members and others from friendly guilds created level one gnomes, were all given a green shirt, and from the gnome starter area had to race to Booty Bay. Rewards were giving to the first 3 to make it there. Crossing several high level zones with such low levels was certainly entertaining! You can see a few high level people who volunteered to ride along with the gnomes and make announcements about who was in the lead.
Ironforge is a major gathering place for people looking for group, buying and selling goods and services, or just hanging out. For some reason, people occasionally just start lining up. This happens at least once a week, and random people tend to join in. These formations will stay around, growing and shrinking as people leave and join, for up to an hour. I don't know why it happens, but I find I usually want to join it for a minute or two every time I see it.
We have a guild meeting once a month, generally going to a different location in Azeroth each time. The officer in charge of fun and games often organizes activities for after the meeting, such as costume contests or dueling contests. Sometimes though, entertainment springs up on it's own. Here, all our druids decided to line dance for us, displaying the new bear dance blizzard had recently implemented.
Thought it was funny to find an Imperial captain NPC crawling on the ground in Star Wars Galaxies, with his squad lined up normally.
Me and my boyfriend took off at the same time and created the 'riding double'-bug or feature - depends...
No shirts, no gloves, no weapons. Many rogues have come to this spot by Ravenholdt to participate in the fight club session. However, by posting this I've broken the first two rules, don't tell anyone. =p
