Goldshire inn, or the Lion's Pride inn as it is officially known, is a festering, pornographic den for all of the lowlife, 'ERP-ers.' As a result, Goldshire is widely regarded on Moon Guard RP realm as Pr0nshire, and will be referred to as such throughout this article.
When it started
Nobody knows when it started to become the cesspit it is today, but videos of the horror were being made in about 2009-10,so the change was fairly recent. Also, it was spoofed in Cru the DwarF in 2008, so its been around a fair while. For anyone valuing their love of the game, I advise you to never go there.
What goes on in there
Goldshire is generally a bit like Las Vegas: you can get virtually laid just by standing there; in fact you would, so don't stand still for very long. ERP-ers generally go along with whatever they consider sexually attractive, and as a result many people go toward human females/and or, males; although since you have NO IDEA who any of these people are in real life, its a mystery. Due to the worgen being a playable race, beastiality is more common; before, all people had were their pets. Attractive females dance on the tables (commonly night-elves, Draenei and humans), and there are so many people in there, you receive a 'Big Pit-o-Lag.' Even the Horde are there, albeit upstairs. They are ganked mercilessly by hardcore, 'duel everyone on the faction, and kill everyone else' PvPers.
Who runs the town
Indeed, Goldshire (Moon Guard US) has someone that RPs as the Mayor of Goldshire. The character's name is Mayorbanks and is well-known throughout the entire server as the official Mayor of Goldshire. This player has an entire background story of how he came to power and the history of Goldshire in his wiki page mayorbanks.wikia.com . Mayorbanks is a renowned figure in Moon Guard's history as many fanart and propaganda has been released on his behalf, ex: http://imgur.com/J0vhhuu (In this image Mayor Banks states that he -is- Goldshire). As of December 2013, this character is still active.
