"There is no force so powerful as a mind resolved."
- Tendael Dawnlight

From the cradle of Quel'Thalas, we have risen to seize the day. Ours is an order tempered by strife and driven by a thirst for power. Our enemies multiple as our allies dwindle, but our spirit remains undaunted, unquenchable, and unending.

Our future is forged in the fires of industry. Should the heavens fall and enshroud this world in peril, we shall remain standing with confidence and tenacity. No force, no matter how ancient or zealous, will be strong enough to sway us from our course.

We march towards the horizon, towards a gilded dawn of progress and prosperity for our people. So long as the sun reigns over this world, nothing will exist beyond our reach. In the end, we shall wield the pen which writes history.

Never surrender. Never compromise. And never give them a reason to doubt you.


On the Cutting Edge
Who We Are

The Dominion of the Sun is a Thalassian order dedicated to the pursuit of power through knowledge, innovation, and mastery of the arcane. The order operates across Azeroth, seeking artifacts, relics, and other objects of value. Whatever power that can be wrested from the coffers of antiquity is used for the benefit of the Dominion, and by effect, the benefit of Quel'Thalas and the Horde.

As a paramilitary, the Dominion engages in combat where necessary, often relying on force to seize or protect assets. As an acquisitions company, the Dominion raids vaults and repositories across the globe in search of artifacts, treasures, and other vestiges of power. As an arms manufacturer, the Dominion uses its resources to assemble an arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons, technologies, and other crafts of war. Collectively, all branches of the Dominion remain unified under an enlightened philosophy venerated by its idealistic leadership.

An Active Agenda
What to Expect

Joining the Dominion of the Sun opens many doors to you as a role-player. With so many opportunities to immerse yourself in our unique storylines, you'll never have an excuse to be bored. It's our goal to make you feel a part of our family and keep you entertained no matter what your schedule is.

Are you interested in more than just role-playing? Do you enjoy PVP, PVE, and other game content? You'll be in good company. A large portion of our members consistently run BGs, heroics, casual raids, and arenas. These members are always more than willing to help others through teamwork, coordination, and encouragement.

This is our promise to you: We will make every effort to give you the best experience you can receive on a role-playing server. From our newest members to our oldest veterans, the Dominion of the Sun is committed to maintaining a standard of excellence.

A Call to Arms
The Benefit of RP-PVP

The Dominion of the Sun is an RP-PVP guild, which means we often participate in organized PVP functions that are incorporated into our story as part of the immersion. Joining an RP-PVP guild does not mean you are required to be good at PVP. In fact, participating in these events is completely optional. However, we will strongly encourage you to improve your game and promise to make every effort to help equip your character for battle. You have the power to determine our fate!

In the past, the Dominion has participated in several campaigns with rival Alliance guilds such as the League of Lordaeron, First Regiment, Lineage of the Moon, Thousand Blade Legion, Sha'nash, Mountain Guard, and others. Such events as the Battle of Durotar and Siege of Northwatch Hold are among the highlights of our career on Moon Guard. As always, we will continue to produce these events and leave behind a legacy of epic storytelling.

    Promotions

    Regardless of race or class, members have the opportunity to advance through the ranks of the organization by demonstrating their commitment, creativity, and leadership. These are the three main factors we take into consideration when a member is eligible for promotion. Thus, we've developed the Merit and Commendation System as a way for officers to keep track of a character's progress in the guild.

  • Merits
  • Merits are the points that you will collect in large quantities. Merits are earned through participation, but may be deducted as a form of punishment. If you attend an event but do not participate, you will not receive a merit. Merits are usually exclusive to the character, but in some circumstances you may be eligible to transfer merits from one character to another. This transfer cannot be done frequently and will require permission from officers.

  • Commendations
  • Commendations are stripes of service given to characters who perform important or challenging tasks in a display of leadership. In order to achieve this award, a member may present an idea for an event or other form of creative role-play to an officer. If approved, a commendation may be presented to the character.

  • Sovereign's Medal
  • The Sovereign's Medal is a very prestigious award given to characters who go above and beyond the call of duty. This is only awarded at the Sovereign's discretion and cannot be achieved by procedural means.

    Ranks

  • Index of the Ranking System

    .....Councilor

    The ranks below are listed in ascending order, starting from the first promotional rank and ending with the last.

    Requirements:
    --Achieved 40 merits.

    Divisions

  • Security and Enforcement

    Current Projects

  • Ley-Cruiser
  • The Dominion Airship, a project started by the organization one year ago, is an effort to create an aerial vessel that can transport soldiers and supplies safely to and from any location on Azeroth. Unlike the first models developed around the time of the Argent Crusade in Northrend, the Dominion Airship will integrate a complex system of runes and arcane technology.

    More information: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6679368304

  • Arcane-Enhanced Resilient Armor System (AERAS)
  • To supplement a super-soldier project commissioned by a discreet faction within the Horde, the Dominion volunteered to invent an incredibly resilient suit of armor that can withstand harsh elements and deflect most spells. The armor system will rely on several existing fields of research, including arcane forging, enchanting, and engineering.

  • Astrolobe
  • This ancient vessel, salvaged from undersea ruins in Vash'jir, is a cartographic device for the ley-lines woven across the surface of Azeroth. Recently, Dominion researchers have begun to expand its capability to the continent of Pandaria. Ancient text found in the Temple of the Jade Serpent suggests that these ley-lines exist as mythical "Ghost Rivers" of pandaren lore.

  • Mirror Image Replacement Army Generation Emitter (MIRAGE)
  • Using arcane technology, the Dominion has managed to compensate for one of its biggest weaknesses in battle: a lack of numbers. The MIRAGE device is capable of producing spectral clones on a mass scale, making it a perfect tool for bluffing. Unfortunately, the mirror images are fragile and weak, making them a poor replacement for a competent soldier.

    The Dominion is a great guild, with allot of fun characteristics! If you enjoy out there RP, with many story lines then this is the guild for you.

    The officers are -very- dedicated, and the Guild Leader cares for nothing but everyone's enjoyment, usually giving up his own.

    There is allot of community within this guild and I would recommend it to anyone.

    I've been RPing on MG for about four years now, and this is by far the best guild I've been in. There is always something going on, whether it be scheduled or unscheduled RP, PvP or PvE. The people are amazing, I've made a lot of great friends, and there is a definite absence of drama!

    I'd recommend this guild to anyone who knows or is willing to learn the lore of Warcraft, and wants to RP.
