Those of you that have read my blog the past year have seen articles about the spring, summer, and fall guild parties.  So here is my latest installment, <The East Kingdom> Winter Guild Party, held last night on Terokkar!

I summoned everyone interested in attending to K3 in Storm Peaks.  I thought the snowy zone would work well with the theme.  We laid down a Brewfest Pony Keg of beer and a Dalaran cask of red wine. (I just discovered these casks in Dalaran the other day, and this one serves 25 people!)

After a few drinks, we did a winter outfit contest.  Several of us had on similar or the same robes, but Mtdewme won with her Glacial Robe and matching blue helm.  The prize was 500g plus Authentic Jr. Engineering Goggles and a Red Wine Glass offhand.

I had two toons at the party, Chatmay and Ellenoria.  Chatmay wore all white.  I put White Swashbuckler’s Shirt under Mooncloth Robe to make the robe look long-sleeved.  This shirt seemed to be the only true white-colored shirt in game.  The rest were all kind of dirty-white.  Not shown in the picture, but I also had my Baby Blizzard Bear out.

Ellenoria is usually at parties as our mascot, Druid Gaga, but she was kind of chilling last night with her moose horns.  Here is what she wore:


Druidic Helmet of Second Sight
Five pieces of Boneshredder set
The Fire Extinguisher 

We then went to the minefield nearby to try for the Mine Sweeper achievement.  After attempting this achievement for a while with guildies blowing up everywhere, we finally had one guildie get the achievement.  He won a Teldrassil Sproutling companion pet.  I filmed this on FRAPS and hope to post it here on the blog in a few days.

The other game we played was Snow-ball.  It was a version of paintball with snowballs.  You had to be the first to hit 10 others with your 10 snowballs to win.  I gave everyone time to hide, then we started.  You could not hit the same person twice in a row.  This game ended quickly, so I might have to think of a way to make it harder for next time.  We had a tie, so both winners received a companion pet or gold.

After the party, we all went and did Naxxramus-25 with nine people to get achievements.  It was a fun night!
