Welcome back to the Mead Hall!
You’ve probably seen us before - we’ve been around for a long time! While we took a break during Shadowlands (running weekly adventures, pubs, etc for years on end takes it out of you), we’re back and ramping things up!
The Mead Hall is a community, NOT a guild. Our events are hosted on Moon Guard, but other servers are more than welcome - just ask for an anchor! We’re all just here to play games and have fun, so don’t let what server something is hosted on bother you.
Anyone is welcome in the Mead Hall, although our events are focused on the Dwarves and Gnomes of Khaz Modan. Members of the Horde are not particularly welcome, although neutral characters (such as Kirin Tor, Argent Crusade, etc) are invited to share a drink with us!
Our rules can be summarized as: act like an adult. It’s really not that hard. For those that don’t understand how to act like an adult, our rules are in greater detail in our discord.
We are currently hosting three types of events: Pub Nights, Moots, and Titan Talks.
Pub Nights are casual RP nights, typically hosted in the Cask ‘n’ Anvil in Ironforge. Currently run every other Sunday at 6 PM WrA server time, anyone welcome in Ironforge is invited to come in, enjoy some free food and drink, and make some friends!
Moots are our big events, changing in location each time. These are hosted every other month, typically on a Saturday at 6 PM WrA server time. Moots typically have 3-4 games for attendees, ranging from dwarven drinking contests to gnomish crashin’ thrashin’ racer tournaments. No one has to participate in any games - you can just come by and get some free drinks!
Titan Talks are gatherings of Titan worshipers, those interested in the Titans, and just general Titanic gnerds to talk about the Titans, speculate on their purposes, and share recent discoveries. These are irregularly scheduled, held every once in a while when there are new things to discuss - or when folks express interest! These typically take an open forum format, in whatever cool (and safe) Titan-ish location we can find.
In the past, we have run weekly Mission Board style and full campaign style adventures. These may return if there is sufficient interest!
Here’s the part you can skip:
The Mead Hall originates from WrA, originally founded (or at least formalized) during the Warlords of Draenor expansion. We moved to MG during the Shadowlands expansion, and took a break shortly after.
The Cask ‘n’ Anvil, the pub in Ironforge, was named in honor of our pub night! Modarin ran the Cask ‘n’ Anvil for years, and a friend of ours (Fatmike of Wyrmrest Accord) petitioned Blizzard to have it properly named. Modarin still runs the Cask ‘n’ Anvil for the Mead Hall, but they’ve retired that character and now host it on Brewbeak.
Bathildis (Ironstout) runs the Ironstout Brewtent at Brewfest each year, and posts the nights it’ll be up in the in-game Mead Hall community! Bathildis also ran the Mithril Mug (AKA: Battlestein Brewpub, the Steel Pub, etc) for years in the back of Anvilmar. Maybe that’ll come back one day, but they deserve a break!
There are at least a half-dozen others worthy of mention in regards to the history of the Mead Hall, but I’m certain I’ve bored you enough. The cast and crew of the Hall are constantly changing, but our love for dwarves (and gnomes) remains the same! That cast and crew could include you, too - if you have ideas for dwarf or gnome events, or if you want to host events for the Hall, come talk to us!
