Greetings Fellow MesLads and MesLassies! (And non-Mesmers too!)

I am pleased to officially announce the date and time for one of our most anticipated events of the year, MesCon! I apologize for not posting this sooner, I needed a kick in the butt to get out from under my homework and onto the forums.



When: Saturday, March 14th, 2009
Time: Noon Pacific Time (Like many Anet events!), which is 19:00 UTC/GMT (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meetingtime.html?month=3&day=14&year=2009&p1=234&p2=0&p3=-1&p4=-1).
Where: Henge of Denravi ID1.
Why: Why not?! Mingle, dance, and socialize with some mesmer socialites!

Of course come wearing green, if you can! It's so close to Saint Patrick's Day, and we'll likely have the Lucky weekend at that point, so why not come in the spirit? It's all good fun, of course.

About Donations: I'm willing to accept any and every thing for a donation! I have no specific requests, but of course, booze and fireworks are always fun for those looking for the titles and just for fun and giggles! Feel free to whisper me in game (IGN: Mog Ruith Of Armagh).

Of course, non-mesmers are always welcome! Bring your friends, your family, chat, drink, have fun!

I hope I haven't left anything out, I'm in a bit of a rush!

As far as me making it to the event or not, don't worry about it, I've got it taken care of. :grin: Thanks for all the offers to help!

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to send me a private message here on the forums, in game, or reply to the thread!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day and a Merry MesCon!

~Mog Ruith of Armagh

I'll see if me and my camera finger can be there. There's nothing more photogenic than an outpost full of dancing mesmer folk.

In honor of all things green and mesmery, I re-present the infamous Mog hangman game (http://www.michelewickham.com/gw/mog/moggy.html).

Thanks for all the responses, everyone (and I love that game, makes me laugh!)

So far, I haven't been online very much to receive donations or anything, but I plan to be online often this weekend, so if you've got a comment or question, please let me know!

Also, please spread the word! Post to your guild forums or other Guild Wars fansites, so that we can get a great turn out this year!

I hope to see many fellow mesmers there!

I'll try to be there! And like the past years, I expect handsome gentlemen with lots of pretty flowers for the ladies out there!
Zera will have her all-Mesmer skill bar ready and will be wearing that green Luxon dress for you. :kiss: :cutie: :girly:

Wanted to give a shout out of thanks to those who have donated either in items or help so far. I'll likely give a complete list of those who have donated their items and time and effort into the event by the end (if I remember to - my memory is terrible lately), and I encourage people to also step up and help if they'd like to be a part of the grand event!

In any case, we're a few weeks away from the party that we've all come to anticipate! I can't stress enough how we need as much publicity as possible this year! Please help by posting to your guild forums and other Guild Wars fansites!

Thanks again for all the help and donations!

I'm not able to make many events due to work obligations but I'll actually be off this weekend! My mesmer isnt' that decked out but I'll wear a green mask.

Plus I have plenty of normal tonics and booze to donate as well. I'll probably try and get with you a couple hours beforehand Mog to make sure I get everything to you.

Looking forwward to finally making a Mesmer event!!

Though I know MQM likes a good party, there will be mesmers there.

and ps Mog I still have to drop off my donations for the event.

Well, knowing that this party is pretty casual compared to most events, there's not much required unless I get overloaded with donations and I need to divvy it out. If that happens (I won't know until the day it occurs) I'll surely let you know! :grin:

Yeah, sorry, I've been really spacey for online time this week, it's been a bit nutty. All else fails, as Gydion shall do, catch me a couple hours beforehand. :grin:

By the way, as time got closer, I've received a lot of donations (many of which I haven't been able to organize a time to pick up, due to distractions and conflicts). I am very grateful for the sudden outpouring of support! MesCon just wouldn't be MesCon without the awesome sense of community!

And big huge freakin' thanks to Anet for posting the news of our gathering on the website (http://www.guildwars.com/community/news/)!! I'm so honored that we made it to the page!

I hope to see everyone this Saturday! Please bring your friends and family, if you can, it'll be a great time!

Im just adding the final touches to my video. Im sorry it isnt that good, its only my second video. I couldnt get much other footage due to the lag (because so many people turned out). Special thanks to Mog and Daniel for doing their job so well, and to Blade Radio for doing a bit. Thanks to everyone for coming, looking forward to seeing you next year!

Well the nice thing about that post is that they cited MesCon as the inspiration, so as long as they did that, that's perfectly fine!

I am curious about the April 1st date though. :D I would think that mesmers would be the "fools" on this day (As mesmers sort of have that courtly jester/motley fool thing goin' on a little bit). /ramble

But they didn't put it on the same day, trying to pull people away from MesCon, so I'm not offended in the least. In fact, the fact that MesCon is inspiring is flattering. :grin:

There's the Wintersday gathering and then there's the Highland Games, but I may restrict the Games to my guild, as some people have taken the Games a little too seriously in the past.

Thanks again everyone, I'm really loving the screenies! Keep posting!
