Recently my guild, <The Order of the Eagle>, held two separate events involving contests. All three contests gave gold as the prize.
The first contest was a horse race across Auridon. We picked this zone because of the varied levels of players in our guild and to avoid phasing. Player Mysterious_Melon won, mostly due to his 61% speed horse! It was a close finish though.
On Saturday we held a guild party/social for guildies to hang out with one another. I am still trying to work events like this out in Elder Scrolls Online since the game is missing a lot of fun things to do for social and role-playing (such as you might find in other games like WOW). However, we did hold two contests.
The first contest was a “best gear look.” I picked someone not participating to judge, although having a non-guildie judge would be a good idea as well. The winner was Sjormos, who wore an armor set. *

The second contest was an Elder Scrolls lore trivia contest. There were around 15 questions of medium to hard difficulty typed into group chat with a last question for the top two players. Ri’Zharim won the contest with six correct answers. A sample question-
“When Redguards arrived in Hammerfell, they arrived in the midst of a war between which two races?” (Nord and Altmer)
Besides all this, we are still holding profession swaps occasionally, and we have a PVP night scheduled for this week! If you are interested in joining our Aldmeri guild, please contact @Chatmay or @Showlor.
