I've been thinking...there's not really a set place for a large concentration of social activity in guildwars. The only place that really resembles a "loung" would be Marhan's Grotto, and the ice gets annoying. Other than that, the rest of the game is a series of LFG, WTS/WTB, etc.
Of course, the exception is at a special event (nevermind the "where's the termites" spamming), where ppl gather in certain districts, like LA intxl X and do group dances, get drunk, etc.
This got me to think, wouldn't it be great if there was a place where every day was like a holiday event?
Wouldn't it be cool to have a place to actually meet ppl on guild wars? Work the group connections, maybe even find fun people to start a guild with?
Wouldn't it be awsome to have a place where you could experience the thrill of betting and winning, all the while drinking for FREE to your heart's content?
If we could concentrate all of these activities into one place, introduce the thrill of gambling, maybe even racing, and pass out free drinks, would people go for it? would people catch on? Do people really want that mass-social environment or do they want to be limited to their guilds, friend-lists and occasional one-minute conversations with other intelligent lifeforms passing by (you know the kind, the ones who say something more profound than "WTS this item that's just like yours for ridiculously more than it's worth, don't waste my time," and then disappear, never to be seen again...)
I was reading over the EULA, and I couldn't find anything that specifically ruled against gambling in a controlled environment or holding races of any type. Maybe I'm misinterpreting the EULA, or maybe I missed something. I assume there isn't another set of rules (besides international and national law, obviously) that GW follows....so....my main question is:
Is it legal for us [Li] - Luminous Invictus (a.k.a. Leet Individuals) to host this kind of casino in our fashionable "Isle of the dead" guild hall (with free drinks flowing and good times rolling, you can't possibly go wrong!)?
If so, are you, the average GW player, interested and/or willing to check it out?
Are there any ideas/additions/suggestions that any of you have?

I'm anxious to read the responses...
