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


Adventurers Wanted!
The Dominion of the Sun is recruiting brave adventurers to protect the interests of Silvermoon and support the acquisition of artifacts, relics, treasures, and powerful weapons hidden across Azeroth. These prizes, sought by Silvermoon's Reliquary, are in danger of being stolen by amateur teams of thieves such as the Explorer's League or agents of the Alliance.
The Dominion provides attractive incentives to members:

DISCOVERY - Members will travel across Azeroth and beyond in pursuit of exciting lands and mysteries shrouded in lore. Understand more about our universe than most sin'dorei will ever dream of knowing.

TRAINING - Instructed by seasoned war veterans, members of the Dominion will receive first-class training in combat and military discipline, transforming them into distinguished soldiers.

TREASURE - Successful missions yield satisfying rewards. Members of the Dominion may come across unfathomable wealth in the form of jewels, gems, trinkets, tomes, and other treasures of antiquity.

The Dominion of the Sun is an organization founded some time after the fall of the Lich King. It originated as a private militia, but later expanded into the field of archaeology, weapons research, and education. The Dominion is now one of the most influencial organizations in Quel'Thalas in both a military and social sense.

The goals of the Dominion are not entirely certain. Although the organization participates in several campaigns across Azeroth, chiefly against the Alliance, many of the Dominion's objectives are still shrouded in conspiracy. Only a handful of its elite members truly understand the cryptic symbolism revolving the organization's agenda. In spite of numerous theories on the nature of the organization, nothing has been confirmed.

In addition to an impressive battle record achieved by its robust army, the Dominion has gained the acknowledgement of Silvermoon's populace as leading advocates of social progress, culture, and refinement. This "Enlightenment" movement has manifested itself in several events hosted by the organization, such as the Silvermoon Symposium, in an effort to share knowledge and ideas with the general public.

Though the Dominion has chosen not to share all of its secrets, it is clear that the majority of its acquisitions are made from a joint cooperation with the Reliquary of Silvermoon. The Reliquary regularly benefits from the conquests made by the Dominion across the world, receiving artifacts and shards of history that would otherwise be seized by rival factions.

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 engaging stories, you'll never have an excuse to be bored.

Events are scheduled daily, and it's not uncommon to participate in multiple concurring storylines created and supported by our members. In addition, our large member base will keep you entertained all hours of the day. It's our goal to make you feel welcome in our family, especially new members.

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 imprvove 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, and others. Such events as Siege of Northwatch Hold and the Dalaran Insurgency 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

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.

Officers


Volänaro Ael'aran - Sovereign
Volanaro Ael'aran is the head of the Dominion of the Sun. He oversees all aspects of the organization and ensures that it moves forward. His experience as a commander in several theaters of war has given him a significant reputation as a warrior and a leader.

Anashae Dawnbringer - Marshal
Anashae Dawnbringer is the Dominion's spymistress and surveillance specialist. Her tactical mind and professional demeanor are invaluable to the Dominion's cause. She is extremely loyal to her comrades, but will not hesitate to discipline those who fall out of line.

Knight-Lord spot currently open.

Colius Thalaron - High Chaplain
Colius Thalaron stands as the morale and medical official of the Dominion. A militant man, his tolerance for frivolous behavior is low, as many among the ranks would say.

Syrinthia Runekeeper - High Magistrix
Syrinthia Runekeeper is a talented magistrix who is leads the research and development projects of the organization. Her spellcrafting is exceptional, but the true value she brings to the Dominion is her ingenuity and resourcefulness.

Divisions

The organization is broken down into three divisions based on purpose. Each division is run by an officer and supported by a team of sub officers. Divisions work separately to accomplish special missions, but also work together to carry out the Dominion's agenda.

Ashborne Corps - Steadfast men of arms who have sworn to protect the Dominion's assets by taking up arms on the front lines to conquer any foe that stands in the Dominion's path. Specializing in weapons-based combat and physical prowess, the Ashborne Corps are the first sight the enemy sees on the battlefield...and often the last. The name 'Ashborne' is synonymous with fear in the hearts of many Alliance defenders.

Conclave of the Sun - Devoted communion that leads the Dominion in healing and spiritual growth and provides moral balance to the organization. The Conclave seek to abolish corruption in Azeroth and prepare a generation for a new era of optimism for the sin'dorei.

Magisterium - Brilliant sorcerers, mystics, and inventors whose sheer intellectual prowess can unlock the secrets of antiquities and devastate their enemies with wrathful spells. The Magisterium is in charge of Research and Development in the Dominion. They are responsible for creating innovative arcane-based weapons, research and restoration of artifacts, and educating the troops.

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.

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.

Redemption and Damnation

The "Redemption" Armored Medical Transport

An Alliance siege engine, stolen and heavily modified by the Dominion. Numerous weapon systems (Though not all) would be replaced by medical tools, the armor of the vehicle would be increased, and the tank itself would feature holy-based wards to imbue a very light regenerative aura to those around/within it. These wards, while not fatal on their own, would prove painful to unholy and demonic foes on the battlefield.

The "Damnation" Anti-Personnel Tank

Also an Alliance siege engine, heavily modified to operate on magical energy (supplied by a demon held in a hibernative state). It would feature weapons which, rather than drawing from traditional ammunition sources, would use the magical energy of the demon contained inside as their "fuel". When the demon runs out of mana, the vehicle would cease function until the minimum amount had regenerated.

The Damnation A.P.T. would receive wards similar to those placed upon the runestones in Quel'thalas to mask the demonic energy fueling the vehicle.
