The Dimbark Homestead - Prologue


A torn piece of wrinkled, wet parchment loosely hangs from a gnarled tree in Duskwood, the nail is rusted and severely bent. The writing sprawled on the parchment is still legible, but the red seal of approval on the very bottom is oozing off onto the ground. You attempt to read the note...

To whom it may concern,
Lord F.R. Dimbark, of the Dimbark Homestead, requests your help to fight the evils that have tainted the once lush Southern Elwynn Forest, now known as Duskwood. We must rid this land of the Wolf-Men that now lurk in our farms, and in our roads.. And we must cleanse our land of the undead scum, who have risen from their graves.

We cannot do this alone though, flushing our land of such bitter threats will not be easy: But with help it shall be accomplished.

We seek those of a truly able mind, and also those of an able-body. We call upon you to help reclaim what is ours, to reclaim what belongs to the people of Duskwood. Your challenge has been presented forth to you, but do you believe you can handle such tasks?

If you are of an able-state, of both mind and body, come forth to Lord Walon of the Dimbark Homestead, who currently resides in Darkshire. We hope to see you very soon...

Lord F.L. Dimbark



The Dimbark Homestead - Introduction

Hi there!
The Dimbark Homestead was formerly a tiny village compromised of only a handful of people that existed before the arrival of the Nightbane Worgen, which ultimately rampaged the village. This event forced the few remaining survivors to flee to Darkshire, where the group exists today.

Our main mission is to push away the Nightbane Worgen that have terrorized Duskwood, and the Undead that have risen and now roam the dark cemeteries of Duskwood. Our secondary mission is to create a new 'home' for survivors in Duskwood, since most people have been pushed to Western Duskwood, out of their farms and out of other small communities.

We strive for an enjoyable role-play experience, and provide that to our members easily with a great, structured plot and a terrific bunch of role-players! There's very few guilds oriented around Duskwood, and our goal is to try to popularize an area rich with good lore and a good back story.

Perhaps Darel'horth and Dimbark can become Twin Towns?
I'd enjoy that Ferenold, but I believe Darel'horth is in Gilneas, isn't it? Or have I guessed wrong all this time. If it is, it'd be a bit awkward for a town of Duskwood, to ally with a town of Gilneas: So far away. I suppose all of the Worgen Refugees in Duskwood, it just seems like quite a journey.

Uhm, do you know what a twin town is?

There are twin towns in California and Sweden, lol.
Oh! Heh! I've just never heard of using a term like that, a Sister Town. Yes, that'd be excellent. I think that'd be a splendid idea, now that you've brought it up.
Looks very interesting, and I may just have a character that'd fit.

We'd absolutely love to have you! Feel free to message me or another Guild Recruitment Master in game whenever, I'm always happy to answer questions.
We'll talk in-game about it.
Well yo-ho, yo-ho, a Dimbark's life for me!

Heh. Thanks Mikel, as it is for me!
Worry not, I've found the thread.

It was in my backpack the whole time.
This guild is cool. You're welcome. :3
I just realized how Dimbark is, like, the antithesis of my treant.

Oh. Heh. That's a bummer.
Bump it up!
Very interesting! I'd definitely like to contact you in-game in regards to interguild role-play in the Kingdom of Stormwind. Best of luck with the guild!
