[RP Event] Summer Festival: Come join us on Cenarion-Circle/Sisters-of-Elune!

Ello dere, mons! I be havin’ some excitin’ news. The roleplayers of the server(s) Cenarion-Circle/Sisters-of-Elune are puttin’ on a Summer Festival, and you all be invited!

WHAT: Summer Festival!
What be a festival, mon?
A festival is a week+ of RP events put on for the general public! We will have contests, games, tavern nights, even a Dungeons and Dragons-style plotline or two to for you to enjoy. Non-RPers, brand-new RPers, and RPing veterans are all welcome!

WHO: the Roleplayers of Cenarion Circle and Sisters of Elune!
Who be those peeps?
Cenarion Circle was the first US-RP server in the game, now merged with our great friends from Sisters of Elune. Though we’re not as big as Moonguard and Wyrmrest Accord, the RP scene here is still thriving, and we’d like to show you what we can do! Both Horde and Alliance characters will be present and welcome. We DO hope you decide to stay!

WHEN: Monday, June 1st - Thursday, June 11th!
Can ya be more specific?
The full Festival schedule will be dropping here soon! Up to 4 events will be run each day, with start times ranging from 5pm to 7:30pm server time: that is, Pacific time!

WHERE: All over! (It depends on the event…)
Bu-but mon, I be REALLY bad at readin’ maps!
Have no fear! We will have warlocks, mages, and two-seater mounts on hand to help you get to any hard-to-reach event locations. For In-Character purposes, most locations and themes will be faction-neutral. All locations will also be listed on the full Festival schedule, coming up here in a bit.

Hope to see you there!
So come on in, put your feet up/get your boots on, and prepare for a roleplaying adventure! More information to come in following posts…

But mon, mon, I have some other questions! (FAQ)

How do I sign up for events?

All events requiring sign-ups will post sign-up sheets (linked in a later post on this thread) for you to put your name on; you can also come the day of the event and ask the event host. Note that once the event starts, in most cases you will no longer be able to sign up, so get it in early!

That said, not all events will need sign-ups, and spectators are always welcome, so drop on by when you can!

Is this cross-faction?

Unless noted otherwise, all events are open to members of both Horde and Alliance and are considered to be neutral/peaceful from an In-Character perspective. We will be making use of Elixir of Tongues, sold in the Underbelly of Legion’s Dalaran, to be able to understand each other at events. If your character is on either Cenarion Circle or Sisters of Elune, we will have spares on hand for you if you can’t buy them yourself!

Is this cross-server?

In general, yes, though there are some special considerations to keep in mind if you’re joining on a character not on Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune:

  1. We will need to be able to invite you to a raid so that you will phase into our server correctly. Please reference the Points of Contact for each event in the schedule above to see who you need to whisper for invites. You can find additional contact information at the top of the schedule, or post here if you’re confused!
  2. Please note we cannot give out prizes to cross-server participants, as you can’t trade ingame items to other servers. (An exception may be made for Battle Pets.)
  3. Similarly, you may also need to make arrangements on your home server to buy some Elixir of Tongues, which we will be using to understand members of the opposite faction during the Festival. These are available in the Underbelly of Legion’s Dalaran for some gold.
  4. Profile addons like TRP do not show up for cross-server characters.

Are the events friendly to low-levels and alts?
Unless noted otherwise in a specific event, yes. We don’t generally use a character’s level to assign their In-Character powers or skills, and if you are coming in from cross-server, it’s encouraged you roll a copy of your main on this server to avoid some of the cross-server issues listed above!

I don’t have many flight routes/don’t have flying/am low-level. How can I get to your event locations?
Please send a whisper to the appropriate Point of Contact listed in the Festival schedule above. They will help get you set up with a warlock or an owner of a two-seater mount to transport you to the right location! (This transportation aid is considered to be OOC unless you prefer otherwise!)

Will I have to download any special addons?
Unless noted otherwise for an event, no. Though many of our RPers make use of TRP and related RP addons, these aren’t required to attend our events!

I’m not an RPer/I want to bring along my friend, but they aren’t an RPer. Is that okay?

So long as all attendees aren’t disruptive and are at least trying to speak In-Character (no lols, emoticons, chatspeak, etc, in /say), this is totally okay! Many of our event hosts are happy to teach anybody new to RP how to get started.

Are there any PvP events? What about Warmode?

There are no PvP events planned at this time. We will be running these events with Warmode turned off. If you come with it on, you won’t be in the same phase as us and so can’t participate.

Please also note that we may have events in locations that are near guards from one or the other faction. Though we may kill these guards to help protect low-level characters, we will be considering this Out-of-Character and ask this not be done unless necessary, as it can get disruptive.

I want to help out. Who do I contact? What kinds of help do you need?

If you want to help at the Festival, please contact Yotingo-CenarionCircle (H) or Evelos-CenarionCircle (A). At this time, we welcome volunteers to help transport attendees, hand out Elixir of Tongues, provide background “flavor” to some of our events, and, of course, spread the word!

Just who all is putting this together?

Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune is a smaller and tighter knit server than you may be used to if you’ve rolled on Moonguard or Wyrmrest Accord. We’ve got the small town vibe going for us, and we like it that way!

In short, most of the major RP guilds on our server are contributing event(s), including Doomguard, Da Doctas, Feathers of Iron, Bards of the Lion, Stormwind Union, Conclave, Ishnu Por Ah, AAMS, Shadow Kingdom, and The Broken House. There wouldn’t be an event without these guilds and their leadership teams, so please give them all a big THANK YOU!

For more information on our server, head on over to our guild directory and event list on the official forums, located here:

While on the realm forums for CC/SOE, make sure to check out all the marvelous forum rp various folks have started. We have some very talented rpers on this connected realm, and it is exciting to think we might attract new folks to the server with this weeklong event.

To those who wish to check out the server and maybe explore a bit, I suggest you peruse the guild lists and seek out a guild leader who can tell you more about their guild.

Well, I’d say that was a rousing success! Today’s event was a parade and some War Games (PvP and /roll duels).

Tomorrow is the Feathers of Iron tavern and some tavern games. Come find us in Booty Bay! Zaranae-CenarionCircle will be on hand to resolve phasing issues on Alliance side, and Yotingo-CenarionCircle or me (Keelath-CenarionCircle) will be around for Horde. There’ll also be a Doctas Clinic in Orgrimmar at 7 bells for Horde.

Here’s a couple screenshots from today (RIP, won’t let me link direct)

And this night we had the Scavenger Hunt and the Dazzling Rod Tournament over on Alliance side. A lot of fun was had by all. Our camera man tonight was Budii of < Bards of the Lion >, who recorded the following pictures for your viewing pleasure of the tournament.

The Dazzling Rod Tournament starts out with a lot of general chaos. Orbs flying everywhere!

The chaos continues into the third round ...wait, is that a raptor?

…and this concludes our broadcast of the Dazzling Rod Tournament in Old Town. Please, wait for the fel to subside before going out of doors, and if you find a raptor with wings, then immediately call the Stormwind–

KZSHKKKKSZZZZHSKH

Ahem. We’d just like to remind you this is only a test. There was no fel in Stormwind. Nor any arcane raptors. The Stormwind City Watch was only having a joke on you. The Watch does things like that. …Zuka, are you sure this is working? Hey, are you eating that mortal’s soul without me? I thought we were friends! Wait, what do you mean turn it off before I–

KSHKKGHZZKK –

… … …

Oooooookaaaaaaaay then, Evelos, mon! Ya know, ya probably shouldn’t be drinkin’ so much when ya bein’ off duty!

At any rate. Scavenger Hunt was a tie between Team Bards (Cerulana, Evelos, Medyfivol, and Budii) and Team Union (Zaranae, Orwyn, and Rayschel).

Several rounds were held at the Dazzling Rod competition, most of them won by Roedran of < Conclave >. Congratulations! Lucifur of < Wolven Redemption > was a close second and our champion from last year, with the very last round being taken away by Cerulana of < Bards of the Lion > thanks to a clever mechagnome disguise.

I not be sure what the Team Cat versus Team Raptor thing was all about, but Evelos mon tells me da cats won the day, with a score of 99 to 94.

Their beady little eyes and just…ARGH! Alelsa! We need to have words!

Will you please stop worrying the fish, dear? You know how you get all worked up when they start biting you. Really, you’re such a big baby sometimes - we’re going to need three cots in the nursery.

Wait, what? THREE? How did you–HEY!

I’d just like to inform you these fish are the size of ME. They could swallow a blood elf whole! And there’s twenty of them!

And dinosaurs! And flying snakes! Why did it have to be snakes!?

Tonight we had Trivia Night and a concert put on by the < Bards of the Lion > !

The winners of the Trivia Night were our friends from Wickham Expeditions of Wyrmrest Accord server. (Unfortunately dey all be elfy names so I not be gettin’ da exact character names…) Though trade regulations keep us from simply handin’ them gold, some Battle Pets of equal value are on their way soon!

The second part of the evening was the “Breaking Down the (4th) Wall”, with singers, instrumentation, special effects, and other support by Cerulana, Zaium, Adlanna, Olivaw, and Maxsin from < Bards of the Lion >. The songs played were parodies on various songs you might have recognized, each recorded and sung by ((the player of)) Cerulana herself! If you wish to hear them still, you can join our server’s Discord (available in the link below) and look in the #music channel!

Beyond that, here’s some screenshots of the night:
