Exemplary Outcomes is launching into the Guild Wars 2 RP scene with this friendly meet and greet; open to anyone and everyone! A dangerous snowstorm is swiftly approaching, coming to blanket Snowden Drifts. Travelers, adventurers, and heroes alike will be seeking shelter from this blizzard in Durgar’s Homestead. Come, wander in and enjoy the food and company as strangers become acquaintances.
What: A seemingly random meet up of people of different backgrounds and professions that come together to seek shelter in a storm. Food and drinks will be provided at this open-ended open RP event!
Where: Durgar’s Homestead, north of Isenfall Waypoint in Snowden Drifts.
When: Tuesday, April 7th, 2015. 9:30pm EST.
Who: This is an open event to RPers of all backgrounds and professions. Is your character a mercenary who has been hunting Svanir and didn’t notice the approaching storm? Come on over! Is your character a traveling merchant who doesn’t look at weather golems? Come seek shelter! We’re assuming the Lionguard are doing their jobs and that the roads are safe for non-combatants. However, we ask that fighting be prohibited and that brawling is kept to a minimum. Assume that Durgar will kick you out into the blizzard if you cause a ruckus, and that physical confrontation is frowned upon.
Why: Exemplary Outcomes is a new guild that wants to promote a welcoming atmosphere and open-ended RP. Hosting events like this help spread the word and help foster new friendships. We hope that everyone will have fun and that all your adventures have exemplary outcomes!
Exemplary Outcomes is also recruiting! We’re looking for drama-free individuals who want to be active in brainstorming ideas for events, attending events, and repping the guild. We’re hoping to enter HoT with a strong repping roster of proactive guildies.
Magical uses: Branches of the buckthorn, placed near doors and windows, drive away all enchantments and sorceries, according to Dioscorides.
A charming legend concerning the buckthorn vows that if one sprinkles buckthorn in a circle and then dances within it under a full Moon, an elf will appear. The dancer must notice the elf and say. ‘Halt and grant my boon!’ before the creature flees. The elf will then grant one wish. I cannot make any guarantees that this will happen, however.
Buckthorn is also used in legal matters (carried or worn to court, etc) and as a general good luck generator.
