<Ours is the Fury> is proud to announce that we will be hosting our first ever guild sponsored event. This will be a foot race in homage to vanilla - wotlk running night elves/draenei to stormwind. The event will be called the Running of the Midgets. Players wishing to participate will make a level 1 gnome or goblin, and will be invited to a party where they will be summoned to the start point of the race. From there, there will be 2 parties, Horde and Alliance. Prior to the race starting, ALL racers will activate PvP, and PVP MUST REMAIN ON FOR THE DURATION OF THE RACE. The initial part of the race will be NO PVP BETWEEN RACERS ZONE (this is a short period of time, as soon as we hit the main road, ganking will be permitted, and is highly encouraged). we will have horde and ally party leaders running with the group, as well as several people streaming. the race will be a long one, filled with ganking, blood, mobs, and suffering, In true homage to the classic-wotlk run to stormwind.
Players that are NOT participating in the race are welcome, and in fact encouraged to come and observe and make life difficult for the racers. please note that the horde and ally party leaders will have areas assigned to them where they WILL be ganking the other factions racers, however they will NOT be ganking each other. Heirlooms are ALLOWED However NO MOVEMENT SPEED ENCHANTS WILL BE PERMITTED>. We will periodically inform world chat where the race is at, to assist the locating and persecuting of the racers.
There will be 2 designated TRADING AREAS where the racers MUST be given an item by their factions party leader, and when a racer completes the race, they MUST trade those 2 items to be eligible to win. This is is to prevent cheating and maintain honesty in the event.
