Currently recruiting core members! (Again!)

Event Complete: 'The Battle of Shadow's Grasp'.

Introduction:

<The Shadowguard> is a Lawful Evil militaristic cult RP guild. It has strict standards, and fully believes in it's cause. We aren't evil just to be evil. We are merciless, but only in the name of what we believe is right. We fight only when our cause is threatened or to carry said cause onward. We will not kill for the sake of killing. We will not be asses for the point of being asses. And, we will not torture for the sake of torture.

General Rules & Recruitment Basics:

We're becoming a fairly selective guild and only accept talented RP'ers. We accept paragraphers, one-liners, or simplistic RP'ers as long as their vocabulary and knowledge of the lore and events makes up for it. We do not accept paladins or priests of holy intentions. We accept most races, excluding pandaren unless veiwed as fitting by the GM and Officers. We do not accept druids or monks, and shamans must be of corrupt or dark nature to join unless as acolytes (which means you're one of the two anyways).

We do not want furry RP'ers. We do not want half-demons. And, we do not want worgen death knights. We accept serious RP'ers only.

Recruitent requires an in-character interveiw, and a few out-of-character questions. Please, be mature if you plan on joining, and if you can't tell the difference between too and two- don't even bother.

Guild Rules:

1. One alt per player.
2. No trolling trade.
3. No yelling random !@#$.
4. Set a good example for the guild.

Event & RP Basics:

The guild's cult ideas are very similar to those of the Cult of Forgotten Shadow. They believe the dark is as vital to existence as the light and think of themselves as the agents and children of the shadows. The religious beliefs are explained more in-depth within the roleplay, as, followers do not begin with these beliefs and are converted over the span of their progression or through IC events.

The cult's system places it's Darkmother in the position of a 'Dark Prophet', and is believed to be directly connected to the shadows, themselves. Upon reaching officer status, optional rituals converting the chosen player to a dark, crusader-like force in service of their Darkmother.

Events are very common on recruitment/event days, which are explained further in this post. Every other week we have events with the <Stormwind Guard Regiment>, and every other week aside from those weeks are 'Dark Crusade' meetings (canceled until further discussion). There are no required events until further notice. We often have smaller events, as well, though, these are most commonly unrelated to the main storyline which is explain more in-depth through RP.

RP Rules:

1. No Barbie-Doll Syndrome.
2. Arrested? Accept the consequences.
3. Worgen RP'ers must focus in man form.
4. Must acknowledge membership IC.

Just to add some friendly feedback, you might do better if you provide some written background to the guild so strangers have a better idea of who and what the guild is about instead of just a few ooc rules and a quick summary. Sounds interesting though!

Mages can climb to Advisor. There are also specific attributes required to climb to 'Rider', but it's possible.

I almost forgot Draenei mages existed. .-.

Hehe, sadly, we aren't focused in Stormwind- Nox left sometime ago, and her followers tend to tread on Shadowguard ground, but- if one of my followers -does- run into you- and you've reason to arrest them- feel free to remind them of the rule!
