It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

The Rose Ball 2010

Every year, near the end of the dog days of summer, a group of wonderful people on Feathermoon get together and throw one of the longest-standing recurring RP events on the server.

The Rose Ball.

This year’s event will be held at the Waygate in Sholazar Basin on Friday August 27th at 6pm Feathermoon Standard Time (US-Pacific Timezone).

(This is the 7th Rose Ball, the first one being held in December of 2004!)

The Rose Ball is the culmination of weeks (or more) of effort from a group of people dedicated to putting on a truly one of a kind RP event. Cross-faction and open to anyone who wants to come, you’ll find storytelling, plays, dueling competitions, riddles, pet battles, and a raffle to win a really awesome prize – this year’s being a figure-print bust statue of the winner (past prizes have included cool TCG items and other swag).

The only rules are basically Don’t Be a Dick. Just show up unflagged and have a good time. Since this is a cross-faction event, there is a certain level of diplomacy involved, and even the usual PVP guilds show up unflagged and often help to keep the peace. Anyone is invited who can get to the event location – this one is in Sholazar – either by their own power or via warlock transport.

It’s a really unique event, very fun, and if nothing else, it’s a fun time to hang out with friends (and make new ones) and show off your favorite RP outfits.


Since the invitations were mailed, Ms Chelody Smallwing has announced that the storytelling contest theme is “Holidays” – any holiday celebrated in Azeroth counts, so long as the story is “fictional” to Azeroth.  Only short stories are accepted, as there are usually a lot of participants, and nobody wants to be there until 4am!.

Arrens and Aely will be there, and you should come too – there’s something for everyone, whether you want to participate, hang out with friends, or just watch the festivities. It’s a low pressure event, since there is usually a very large gathering, so even if you’re only comfortable talking to one or two friends, there’s fun to be had and fun people to meet. (And of course, you don’t have to participate in every event – Aely usually gets in on the Riddles contest, and loves to hear the storytelling, but neither of us is very interested in dueling!)

Hope to see you there!

  1. I really wish I had logged the story Illi told at the last Rose Ball – I was especially proud of that one.

  2. @Illi – ORCFIIIIISH

  3. …I think I’m going to go roll an alt right now so I can come to that without be too much of a noobie.

    Though that is the same night as the guild-run ICC that I’ve actually been told I can go to.


    Well, either way, I hope it goes well!

  4. @Apple – If you do decide to roll up an alt and come hang out, let me know (either through email – toomanyannas at gmail – or in game) so I can make sure you get a summon! Also, if you need a cute outfit, I might be able to help with that too 😀

  5. Hopefully I’ll remember to attend tomorrow! Must… engrave… into brain… and not be sick…

  6. Is this where I QQ about my Gilneas guild’s raid times? >.>

    Will try to be there at some point! Maybe we’ll have another night off….

  7. I’m at the Rose Ball right now and I can’t see Aely or Arrens anywhere *sniffle*
