Running Of The Trolls
The First Annual Running of the Trolls will be held on Feathermoon-US Horde Side June 27th starting in the Troll Starting Zone. The run will start at 6pm PST or 9pm EST.
Running of the Trolls 2015 will benefit The Trevor Project, a nonprofit group that is focused on suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and other youth. Running of the Trolls will help us celebrate Pride Month, and encourage our younger members of our community who may most need support and help through their teenage years to reach out for it, and to encourage the rest of the community to reach out.
What is this, why Trolls this time?? What will this do?
We have had a BLAST over the last 5 years going on our yearly run with the gnomes (1,330 of you that I managed to count!) and we’ve always been asked if we were bringing the event or an event like it Horde Side rather than just invading your capital city as part of the after party.
With all of the silly, funny, hilarious, and Trollish questions we’ve gotten over the years, Trolls and their bright colorful hair seem like the perfect choices to take on an adventure across Azeroth!
Just like we’ve done all these years with our Gnome friends, the entire event will also be to raise awareness for a charity we truly love, The Trevor Project, and to help raise funds for it.
Okay, this sounds fun, but how do I sign up?
Easy! Simply log into Feathermoon-US or it’s connected Realm Scarlet Crusade US and create a level 1 Troll. Our race crews will be there with official racing guilds and tabards. You can also /join TrollRun to chat with fellow Trolls.
A note about Racing Guilds: We ask that even while it’s hectic, or there’s multiple guilds, that you join only the guilds we’ve confirmed so we are able to count how many of you all there are. We promise that we’ll have enough tabards for everyone, we just have to do it all one at a time.
A note about Trial Accounts: While you can run along with us on a Trial Account or similar such account, you will be unable to /join TrollRun and join a Troll guild, however, you’ll be able to come on the adventure with us, and be counted!
Your gnome runs have a specific hair color, what hair color should I pick?
Unlike our gnome runs, we feel that you should have a say in what hair color you decide to give to your Troll. There’s a lot of different pride flags that are very important during Pride Month, and if you felt so inclined, picking a Troll with a color from a Pride flag that reflected who you are, or supported someone you loved, would be really special. We hope to see some of you sharing S.E.L.F.I.E.s and screenshots of your beautiful trolls.
I’m full on character slots on Feathermoon and I’m Alliance only/I have a Troll already on Feathermoon or Scarlet Crusade…Do I have to roll a new level 1?
You don’t have to! You could put on a fun outfit, maybe change your hair color, bring a mammoth or a drake and rescue lost trolls! And run along with us. High level “Honor Guard” escorts are always really appreciated.
Do keep in mind that the organizers cannot offer cross realm invites to anyone during the event.
