    You are cordially invited to attend the joining in wedded bliss of Urgz’Gurg and Habu on the 18th of Feb at 7:00 PM EST.

    Being that the bride and groom are both orcs the nuptials will take place at the Trammel Orc Fort that is south of Yew. Because many of the bride and grooms relatives will be in attendance they request that human and elf guests wear a mask of orcish kin, to show respect to the orc tribes in attendance. If you do not have one the wedding party has graciously offered to provide some for guests. The blessed ceremony will be carried out by one of the two emissaries and will be followed by a reception featuring many fine orcish dishes. (In other words if you’re hungry I would suggest getting something to eat before coming to the wedding.) A rune to the wedding location is provided for those who wish to attend just outside the door of the (EM)Councilors Hall in Britain on the justice tile.

    For those of you who do not know what a “Mask of Orcish Kin” is here is a brief description below.
    A Mask of Orcish Kin: While wearing this mask, orcs will not attack you. When you attack an Orc, or steal from an Orc, or allow your pet to do damage to an Orc (all while wearing the mask), the mask will explode and you will receive damage from the explosion. Every time you put on the orcish mask, you lose some karma.

    I am SO jealous of those who will be able to attend this event. Being able to attend the nuptial's of such a noble creature is an opportunity which few outside the orcs themselves have seen.

    And to top it off, the buccaneers are represented in the wedding party as well!

    Orcs AND pirates. It doesn't get much better than that!

    Someone at least save me an orcish ale!

    I believe I may just attend... wearing savage kin paint, snake skin boots, an orc mask, and a cape.

    [Edit]That is providing I get out of work on time, and home before the event starts.

    I managed to make it there - it was a good time. The ceremony was nice, but after we got into the drinks it turned into a bit of a brawl. (Though I think it might an orc custom...).

    Kasaven and Cernunnos were both present, and Kasaven performed the ceremony.

    Arrrr! These evening events on weekdays kill me! I'm very angry that I missed that event, but on weekdays I have to sleep (7pm EST is actually 1am for me). And with the current crap going on in my job, I can't afford a lack of sleep...

    Vallend was there, they'll probably be forthcoming.

    And a drunken brawl just isnt the same without Captain Pike.

    I didn't get any pictures this time, my magic painting fairies must be afraid of orc's or something. I was able to attend, it was quite a unique ceremony. Smelled kind of funny (orc's are terrible house keepers), but it was still nice.

    Couldn't make it , but sounds like it was fun.
    I don't want to know what the kiss was like if there was one.

    It involved a lot of teeth and groping.

    I think the groom might have lost part of his lower lip.

    ****Lowers head**** Did not make it home in time...I very much wanted to go. Forgive my absence. I even had two orc masks. Mine are pink though, not green. Is there more than two color masks? ****Sticks lip out, and walks out of room.****
