New to MG Horde (NMGH) is proud to present FOR THE HUNGRY! This is a public RP event for Horde citizens to come along during Winter’s Veil for a free feed, or host a banquet!
For the Hungry! (Winter’s Veil Edition)
When: 7pm to 9pm, Tuesday December 22nd (server time, CST)
Where: Valley of Honor, Orgrimmar
Who: Any member of the Horde (or neutrals) - any race, class, or level
What to bring: A big appetite. It doesn’t hurt to dress up either!
What to do: Sample some nice food and socialise!
Add-ons: TRP or MRP roleplaying addons would be beneficial. Also Listener if you get lost in crowded, noisy environments.
If you would like to host a food booth:
- Each booth will generally be hosted by a guild
- The food will fit the ‘theme’ of that guild
e.g. Flashbang Exports (goblin guild) will be providing Goblin Shortbread, Clamette Surprise, Goblin BBQ, and Ka’ja Cola!
- Individuals without guilds are still welcome to host
- We will try to avoid crossover between food booths to give the event lots of variety
HOST SIGN UP FORM
- Name of guild or individual.
- Name 3 foods and 1 beverage that you would like to provide.
- Please briefly describe your guild, theme, or why you’d like to provide for the hungry.
- Best way to contact you.
Host application deadline: THURSDAY 10 DECEMBER.
Q: Where do I send my host sign up form?
A: Either post it on this forum, or send it to me on discord (send a friend request to Flywheel#4087). Alternatively, you can join the NMGH discord (link at bottom of page) and then message Flywheel.
Q: Will I be allocated a place for my booth?
A: Yes, we will post a map showing booth placements about a week before the event.
Q: How do I know what other people are providing?
A: A ‘menu in progress’ list will be posted on this forum thread and updated regularly.
Q: Don’t you have to be in a raid group to eat feasts?
A: Yes. Everyone at the event will be encourage to join the event raid group. If required, we will make 2 raid groups.
Q: Can I provide more than 3 types of food and 1 drink?
A: We prefer you stick to the guidelines and menu. It’s easy to get carried away and try to provide too much food, but don’t over-exert yourself! These limits have been placed to keep things simple and achievable. Also keep in mind that there may be some lower levels at the event, so choose your food wisely!
Q: How much food of each type should I bring?
A: If you are making feasts, don’t make more than 20. For individual food or drink items that can be handed out, don’t make/buy more than 40. There’s no need to put in extreme amounts of effort farming ingredients. We are expecting to have a number of hosts at the event; you won’t be the only one!
Q: Do I have to cook my own food?
A: No, vendor bought food is absolutely fine. Why not bring a Goldtusk Inn Buffet Breakfast toy? It’s good if you can have at least one table type item (e.g. a feast) to lay down.
Q: Does it have to be ‘real’ food, or can I just RP it?
A: Your food should be something that people can eat or drink in game. This is so that we can have consistency across the whole event.
Q: Can I just spectate and watch, or is it a closed event?
A: It is a open event and you are welcome to watch. Almost all RP will be conducted in emotes and /say.
Q: Do I have to sign up to come?
A: It is preferred that food providers (hosts) sign up so that we can organise everything. Participants (hungry folks) can just rock up at the right time. If you would like to host, but haven’t signed up, please just try to find a spot where you’re not crowding someone else. All are welcome. An RSVP is not essential.
Q: I haven’t roleplayed before. I don’t know anyone. Will this event be suitable for me?
A: Absolutely! This event is designed to encourage new roleplayers to give it a try and talk to some of our friendly MG Horde citizens. You’ll probably make some great new friends!
Q: Will there be guilds recruiting at the event?
A: There will be some guild banners around, but the focus is on food and festivities. Guild recruitment ads are generally discouraged, but you are more than welcome to have RP conversations and recruit in a more subtle way.
Q: What should I wear?
This is a Winter’s Veil event, so why not get a little festive? Maybe a santa hat or a festive jumper. If you’d rather go stylish or gothic or tribal, perhaps wear something that matches the style of food you’re cooking! (Sambrero, anyone?!)
Q: Will this event be advertised on Discord?
A: Yes, we have a poster on the drawing board, and you’ll be seeing it splashed about on all your local billboards!
