The towering form of the Highlord stood hunched over his wooden Council table, heavy eyes focusing on a dimly lit piece of parchment. He had hardly noticed the woman that now stood across from him enter, nor did he raise his head when he spoke. “Ambassador Lorik, you’ve my thanks for coming so swiftly.”
The Ambassador nodded her head, piercing eyes regarding the Highlord with curiosity. “What is it you require, my lord?”
There was a long pause, before he spoke again. He let forth a heavy sigh, metal-coated digits drumming along the oaken surface of the table. Eventually, he raised his head, glancing at her. “You know of my injuries, yes?” He continued after a decisive nod from the Ambassador. “They’ve..not healed, per say.” He sighed again, sitting down in the high-backed chair behind him. “I am no longer fit to lead the Crusade, Cassarian. Death circles around me, and I do not deign to let it take me. Nor do I deign to leave the order abandoned. If you are willing, I would see you rule in my place, as Regent of the Crusade.”
A thin brow raised in response to his request. It was not what she expected, to say the least. She had been expecting more work involving the various orders allied with the Crusade, not..this. She opened her mouth to speak, then closed it again, running what he had said through her mind many times. Joffrey took her silence as the best chance he’d receive to elaborate further. “Cassarian, I do not ask this lightly. You are the best hope for the future success of the Crusade. I would not have asked this of you if I did not think you would serve as well as I, if not better.” He spoke with occasional pauses, stopping to cough into a plated hand.
“I..”, she remained silent for a long while, before finally nodding. “Very well, Highlord. I accept. You’re dealing with all the damned paperwork this time, though.”

He offered a slight smile. “I’d not have it any other way. You’ve my thanks, Ambassador. Light bless you.” And with that he stood, giving a crisp salute, before once more returning his gaze to the parchment before him. He waited till he heard the decisive clank of the Council room door closing before beginning to cough once more. He managed a smirk. It seems, he thought, that he made a good decision.

The Initiate

After seeking out the Hammer, these individuals are tasked with a specific set of tasks to prove their loyalty and usefulness to the Crusade. Being the lowliest starting rank; the initiates have little authority and social standing. Once an initiate has decided what sort of training he or she would like, this individual addresses a Captain about what rank they'd like to obtain. The Captains duty then, is to assign the Initiate to a chosen mentor who will oversee their training until they are deemed worthy and ready to advance to the next rank.

The Footman

The Footman is the role of a fighting vindicator for the Hammer. They provide preservation for the rest of the Hammer, serving as a line force. A combatant comes in a multitude of forms, and are individuals who have recieved the right to bare the colours of the Crusade. The Footman take their orders from any commanding officer, and march headlong toward any foe who dares question the Light's word.

The Crusader

The Evoker

The Evoker is among the deadliest of adherants in the Crusade. Often relying on their knowledge of the arcane, their magic is tempered with zeal and training in martial arms. Evokers often charge headlong into battle, obliterating their foes with incendiary magic, only to pick off the remaining survivors with enchanted weaponry.

As a result, their training is both demanding and thorough. They are extremely tough melee combatants; featuring tactical flexibility and brute strength. They are handpicked by the Grand Crusader and can only rise in the echelon by her word. They stand above the common forces.

The Inquisition

The Inquisition is comprised of a multitude of different individuals; ranging from former healers, such as Priests and Paladins, to Rogues seasoned in the art of secrecy. Inquisitors are given high authority within the Crusade. The Inquisition is tasked with transforming a broken individual into a loyal zealot of the Scarlet Crusade.

The Priesthood

The Priesthood is comprised of healers, teachers and brothers and sisters of the Light. These men and women are devoted and serve to aid their brethren both physically and spiritually in any way possible. These Priests are authorized to perform sacred rituals of religion, especially as a mediatory agent between humans and the Light. Priests will not only serve as religious figures, but also as practitioners of divine magic; which they use to both heal and protect allies, but also harm and weaken foes.

And because they choose Latin over English, exitus acta probat is Latin for the outcome justifies the deed.

I can honestly never see Aaron getting along with any of these guys. Once a Scarlet always a Scarlet. Though it looks like a solid guild structure and I wish you lot the best.

Latin sounds so much lovelier. Thank you for your kind wishes.
The sound of shifting plate armor and marching echoed across the misted Plaguelands, as a bedraggled convoy made its way towards the high walls of Tyr's Hand. A column of some twenty soldiers, some mounted, some on foot, moved along the road. They were a ragged sight; clad in piecemeal plate armor that was torn and scraped, armor that had born terrible, prolonged conflict . The faces of these men and women were worn and haggard; but each bore a look of fierce determination. And upon each and every individual, dirtied and sullied but evident nonetheless, was a tabard of white - a red flame stitched in the center.

The figure who road at the forefront of the column, however, was not so disheveled. Clad in hulking plate armor that, though gilded and ornate, bore the tell-tale signs of battle; sloping scars and pitted mars of war decorated the thrice-blessed plate, along with purity scriptures sealed in wax. Over this armor was worn a similar tabard, though the Scarlet Flame was outlined in gold; the markings of an Onslaught Officer. A tri-pronged shield hung from his side, and a thick, leaf-shaped blade lay sheathed in a scabard by his waist, but most striking of all was the helm - a golden thing cast in the shape of a mans face. It was a beautifully wrought piece, but there was no warmth to it. No humanity. It was as empty and soulless and cold as the frozen tundra, and the man who wore it seemed to exude an almost palpable aura of menace.

When they arrived before the great gates, Lord Naevius Bellorum raised an armored fist, and without a word the column halted; though bedraggled and worn, the discipline of these Crusaders was unquestionable. Slowly, that golden visage turned to look up at the walls, scanning for a sentry "Open the gates" He barked - a guttural, resonant command. A few moments passed, before the slow groan of wood and iron filled the air and gates were opened. Bellorum nodded and urged his steed forward, a sense of cold satisfaction stirring in him as the token force of Onslaught survivors filed in behind him. He had found many more in the north; the scattered remnants of the mighty legions that had marched on Icecrown. He had departed for Northrend some months ago, and had begun organizing and rebinding the scattered survivors. When they were ready, they would sail south to join him; and with the Crusade reunited at last, they would usher in a new era for this world. An era of progress and victory - an era of human reclamation.

Beneath that mask, his face twisted in a grim rictus. A smile. A new day was at hand; and it would dawn in crimson.
*gasp* Naevius has returned! The Hammer has been renewed!

Anyway, I know I left but I still love this guild to bits. How I miss the red!
