August 25, 2008

Have I told you what kind of crazy conversations go on in the Unemployed Shoutbox?  Oh, sure I have.  But this one – this one is more than just a conversation.

It all started with me saying “I think I need a vacation.”

And now, we are picking hotels for our guild-wide meet-up in Shiny Las Vegas!

That’s right, it’s really going to happen.  We’re pulling together to organize a guild meet up, and it’s about time!  I’ve known many of these people for over a year now, spent at least 3 hours a day, 3 days a week working as a team with them.  I think it’s time we all got together and got DRUNK.

This is the biggest test of my ability as Guild Events Officer for the guild.  This is THE Guild Event.

We picked Vegas because flights are supposed to be cheap to get there, and there is a lot to do.  However, I would like to note that the “cheap flights” theory ONLY applies to flights within the USA.  From way up here in Ottawa, a round-trip ticket is pushing $800. Ouch.  In fact, it seems it’s almost cheaper for me to fly to ANY other US city than Las Vegas.  So, it’s time for me to start saving up!  I just hope drinking doesn’t bring out the pugnacity in anyone, we don’t want to have any RL duels!

Now, I’d like to leave you with the Las Vegas Raid Rules as listed by our very own Vladante:

  • Don’t aggro the pit boss.
  • Chips are BOP.
  • Ninja looting the craps table will get you banned.
  • Daily quest rewards = booze.
  • Don’t aggro the damn pit boss.
  • Hookers can be a group quest.
  • All you can eat buffets are the same as mage tables.
  • Cocktail waitresses with free booze = raid healers.
  • Don’t aggro the god damned pit boss.
