"The Sanguine Mantle. We are not a guild. We are not an organisation, order, company, house, or any other type of group. What we are is an alliance... an alliance of aforementioned powers and individuals, all working to further one goal - the betterment of Quel'thalas.
For thousands of years, Quel'thalas served as the envy of the known world. Not only was our homeland beautiful, but it was one of the most powerful nations to ever exist. After the Scourge came, however, we were toppled. Everything was razed, and through a series of events that I'm sure you are all familiar with, we struggled to reclaim our home. A few short years ago, however, we finally rose once again; like a phoenix from the ashes.
We are now led by our wise Regent Lord, and through him are members of the Horde. However, we are still weak as a nation. Less than a year ago, we required the aid of the Quel'dorei to stop the Amani resurgence. Furthermore, we would have never managed to seize control of the Ghostlands without the aid of the Dark Lady and her Forsaken. Now, once again, we are threatened.
There are those among our people who would see us throw what little forces we have around the globe; our small amount of soldiers fighting on various fronts without knowing if they will survive or not... and, in the meantime, leaving our homeland defenceless. These people, tyrannical and selfish, believe themselves to be the true masters of Quel'thalas. They constantly circumvent the Regent Lord, and would see our nation under their control. And, brothers and sisters, under their leadership we would be ruined.
It is for that reason that the Sanguine Mantle has been created. To combat the various groups and people who wish to control our nation and home from the inside. Villains, they are - corrupt politicians leading others, who do not know the errors of their ways, to madness. The names of these dark fellows cannot be written here, however, less they discover our plot and attempt to exterminate us before we gain enough power and sway to defend ourselves. However, if you wish to join us and learn more about the dark war about to be fought in the shadows of Silvermoon's spires, leave a letter by the vendor of fine wines in the Silvermoon City Inn detailing your name and affiliation.
Join us, and by the Light of the Sun, do your duty to Quel'thalas and her Children of Blood."
((The note would just be mailed to Malredis, OOCly. =P))
Alrighty, people! Hello. Having a nice day? Good, good. Well, my name is Malredis, and I have recently decided - along with a few of my IC allies - to create an IC group that will cross guild and individual boundaries. Our goal, IC, is to fight the various corrupted groups and people in Silvermoon who might lead our people down a dark path (more on this can be elaborated during OOC meetings). OOCly, however, we wish to provide a dynamic, diverse, and casual to moderate roleplaying environment for all those with similar goals. Simply put, we wish to promote political, militaristic, and espionage based roleplay within Quel'thalas.
Now, from reading all the information I have already posted, I can tell you're thinking, "N'aww! So it's just another Blood Elf only group." Well, I'm happy to tell you that you can - possibly - be wrong! We are, naturally, focused on the Sin'dorei and Quel'thalas. However, if there are other members of the Horde who, say, would like to see Silvermoon's position within the Horde secured even further, or perhaps wouldn't, this would also be a good group for you.
For example, Oggrash is an orc and Horde patriot. He might say, "Oggrash fight for Horde. Oggrash refer to himself in the third person, because Oggrash an orc. Oggrash wants to make sure magical elves stay in the Horde and help the Warchief crush the Alliance. Oggrash will fight with the Sanguine Mantle and aid that place that Oggrash can't pronounce!"
An opposite example, however, is in the mind of a Forsaken who dislikes the Horde and wishes to further the Dark Lady's agenda. We'll call him... Deleterious. "If I aid this group, I could sow chaos within the streets of Silvermoon and perhaps influence my allies to dislike the Horde and give full support to the Dark Lady. Then, if she ever decided to rebel against the Warchief, we would have the aid of the Blood Elves! Muahahaha!"
