- And so it begins
We met for the pre-event Mixer in front of Orgrimmar.
- There was dancing
Actually, mostly there was a lore discussion, but in this snapshot we are dancing.
- And so it ends
We ended the mixer after half an hour of mixing.
- The gathering
Here we are, epic mounted and ready for our ride to STV.
- The waiting
We gathered on the platform, waiting for the zeppelin to Gromgol.
- We're on a boat
Well, a flying boat. As usual, there are worries about weight limits, but the goblin magic/ingenuity keeps us afloat.
We regrouped in front of Gromgol for our trip on the road to Gurubashi Arena.
- And we rode
There were no cries of Protect the Lowbies -- a rare occurence for an It came from the Blog run.
- and we rode some more...
The ride wasn't very long, but it wasn't short either.
- There was more riding...
We look good riding together in black with glowy blue.
- Are we there yet?
The ride seems longer in this gallery than it did in game.
Truly, we didn't spend this much time riding.
- Light at the end of the tunnel
It's just around the bend...
- Gurubashi Arena
Yes, we're there. Now everybody get nekkid.
Gunne provided us with a screenshot of the nekkidness, which is good since I forgot to take one. Our first event was for everyone to get nekkid and fistfight me till I died. This was difficult at first because it's hard to remember NOT to use specials and the like.
- Hi Matt. Take your clothes off.
Matticus joined us in chat only to find everyone was already in the arena, nekkid and beating me up. I'm the fully dressed one in the middle.
- There was beer too
Somebody popped a brewkeg before the battle, so we were all a bit virtually toasted.
- I see a disease.
- And I'm dead
It was actually a pretty quick battle or two.
- Nekkid Last Man Standing
We had a couple of Nekkid Last Man Standing events. The rules were nekkid fistfighting only and to not return to the battle once you died.
- Breaking the rules
As you can see, the whole no spells/skills rule is still hard to follow.
- To the death!
I really like this picture. They are so fierce... and nekkid.
- Get dressed!
The next event was a fully clothed/fully skilled last man standing. It seems there was some drinking here too.
And waiting for the next event.
- Allies were toast
We had a couple of Alliance show up and get ganked. Regardless of level, we outnumbered them. But it was hard to remember not to use AOEs when in a free for all arena.
- In between events
- This event isn't about fair...
There was a little bit of kvetching that we had some level 80s in the fray, but fights to the death are rarely fair and this was no exception.
- The Gauntlet
For the final event, I had everyone line up, Soul Train style, and they each took turns running the gauntlet.
- The End
It always hurts to say goodbye. So after we took this picture, we had an anything-goes free-for-all before leaving.
- Epilogue starring Demion
You're famous now, Demion.
