Zack steps forward to speak in front of his peers. “Hello and thanks for taking the time to hear me out. Before my wedding and honeymoon, I had spent a significant amount of time learning and profusely earning the respect of the Bronze Flight, which some of you know is the most difficult Flight to gain trust with….besides the Azure Flight.”
He lets out a small sigh. “I am here to propose a venture that is of a HIGHLY unusual nature. It is magic that the Bronze Flight are willing to provide us….Time Diving.” He hears the murmurs and mutters as curiosity strikes the room. He motions for his co-workers to quiet down. “Now I know as of late there have been debates among some of our History and Archeology Professors as to what events occurred during certain time periods. Time Diving would allow us to alieve some of the stress and frustrations and quiet down the irritating bickering.”
There was a light chuckle from some of the members of the co-workers, while others looked ashamed. Giving a look around the room, Zack continued to speak. “The things you all need to know about Time Diving are as follows: First of all, we are placed into a coma-like sleep. The only element of us that is transported to the past is our minds and our spirits, though there are still risks. This means anything that could be a serious enough injury can be translated to the body. While they do have healers there, it is better off to not be reckless.” He takes a glance at Caniell on that note.
Clearing his throat, he continues. “Second, just as with the portals within the Caverns of Time, we are not allowed to alter events. An example of such….if Kael’thas is meant to die, then he must die. There is no conversing or changing events allowed. Third, we ARE allowed to collect artifacts that will be transported to our bodies after the Time Dive is over with. This means that if there are certain pieces that we want to add to our artifact collection, we are allowed to do so. HOWEVER, we are not allowed to take key items that were needed to progress the events taking place in the Time Dive. An example of this would be the Dragon Soul if we were to go and experience the Well of Eternity and Sundering.”
He would pass out a sheet of paper to his colleagues. “This lists out everything I have mentioned. If you have any additional comments, suggestions, or questions, please come and tell me.”
Alright. Here is the gist of what this event will be for. This can give us the chance to do Old World Raids (Pandaria and below) to obtain mounts, transmogs, and achievements that we have not had the chance to obtain during the time it was main game.
Here are a ground rules:
<!-- [if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->We are doing this In-Character. This means we are not to rush anything as this is meant to be for History/Archeology research.
<!-- [if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->In regards for loot, there are two things to consider: First, if you want it, be it for transmog, then NEED IT. Second, if it is a mount, you MUST SPEAK UP AND TELL WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE IT! The same goes for pets! If you have AT LEAST ONE, BUT OTHERS DO NOT HAVE IT AT ALL, then you MUST pass on it to those people.
<!-- [if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->If there is any arguing over who is meant to get what item, either myself, Amara ( if joining), or Mags ( if joining) will take whatever items are argued over and sell them, putting the gold in the guild bank.
<!-- [if !supportLists]-->4. <!--[endif]-->Lastly, if we ever open this up to people outside of the guild, which I doubt we will ( but better safe than sorry), then all rules must be understood by the person. If they are not willing to abide by such rules, then they will no longer be welcome to come on these trips. One chance only as I am not as nice as some with certain events and do not tolerate idiotic people unwilling to abide their hosts.
Other than that, let’s try to have fun and let the learning commence!
Great write-up Zack! Thank you! :) This seems like it'll be a fun event, both IC and OOCly!
I've posted a calendar date on the in-game guild calendar for later this evening, in case you haven't seen it yet. I'm told that tonight's "practice run" will be Vanilla dungeons!
I'll be more on top of these in the future, now that there's an explanation post listed here. :p
