"Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.
We are 7th Legion."

-High Commander Halford Wyrmbane

*Posters are pasted in places where men an women of the Alliance may gather such as the Cathedral, Auction house and Inns*

By the order of King Varian Wrynn, a select group of the 7th Legion have been sent to Kalimdor as a strike force after the horrific atrocity's of Theramore. The Seventh Vanguard is a unit of elite soldiers made up of top Alliance members from the 7th Legion at the request of Lady Jaina Proudmoore. Our job is to retake territory in this dark time of war and to protect any Alliance settlements and strongholds still standing in Kalimdor. The commanding officer, Grand Marshal Baldrec Ashcroft, requests all able men and women to sign up and begin assisting the Alliance in the fight against the monstrous and vicious members of the Horde!

Guild name: The Seventh Vanguard

The Seventh Vanguard is a level 25 role-playing guild centered around the 7th Legion and the naval fleet.

The Seventh Vanguard is lead by the Grand Marshal who acts as leader and as the voice of the High Commander of the 7th Legion. The Vanguard is lead by a Council which includes the, Grand Marshal, the Marshal, And the Captain's of the Vanguard forces. The Grand Marshal has ordered the following divisions to be formed in order for the Vanguard to have the as much success weather on the sea, land, or air:

The Infantry Division:
Lead by Captain Curayn Smith, the Infantry forces are the bulk of the Vanguards forces. The Ground force is always the first into battle and the last the leave. In order to be apart of the Infantry force you are expected to be able to swing a blade, defend others, and lead the Seventh's forces into battle.

The Caster Division:
Lead by (Unannounced), the Caster division is a key component to the Vanguard's success in battle. With the trained Battle-Mages and Pyromancers, the Vanguard's Caster Division is a real battle winner when it comes to ranged combat. The Division is also a major asset when transporting the men and women of the Vanguard to different areas of the world.

The Ranger Division:
Lead by Lieutenant Stoya Starsight, the group known as Easy Company is the Ranger division within the Vanguard. These men and woman are adept Snipers and Marksmen. Special training is required for this division as it has some very different components to it.

Some basic rule and expectations of the Seventh:
1. We ask is that you come wanting to be a good RPer and have MRP or TRP2.

2. Typing and English. It is expected that both IC (in-character) and OOC (out-of-character) members of the guild use proper capitalization, punctuation, spelling and grammar. It is recommended that members download the Misspelled addon if they are not confident in their spelling.

3. No Drama. This means that if you’re the type of person who feels the need to make everything into a melodramatic scene, this is not the guild for you. While roleplay (and critiquing fashion) can cause a small amount of drama — we expect it to — this is not an excuse for you to make a mountain out of a molehill. We want a good, friendly atmosphere where people can feel comfortable to speak their mind.

4. No racism / sexism / bigotry / slander / libel. In essence, don’t say anything about someone else that is against Blizzard’s defined E.U.L.A. A certain amount of cursing and playful banter is allowed (Guild chat is rated PG-13), but when it begins to cross lines and make people feel uncomfortable, it needs to stop without remark or question.

5. Do not take IC into OOC, ever. What our characters do does not reflect on us as a person. If you have a problem with someone’s character, let them know; however, the response you’re likely to get is: “that’s just how my character is.” This is acceptable. Keep in mind, though, if your character is a consistent problem and cannot develop in such a way that it would be beneficial to the growth of the guild— there is the possibility you can be removed. Just as we cannot allow a person to act immature, we rightfully can’t allow their character to act unduly immature as well.

Yay for the Vanguard!
"When the course is laid and the anchor's weighed,
A sailor's blood begins racing.
With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled,
We're underway and off to see the world"
We have returned...join and embrace the coming darkness!
Good morning Moon Guard!
From the Thirteenth Cohort of the Seventh Legion, welcome back Vanguard!

Thank you very much, my friend!

Great day in recruiting! :D
"He walked along the old harbour,
Never thought he'd meet a girl to recruit
( meet a girl to recruit)
With tawny hair and big round eyes,
The kind of eyes that just look so damn cute
(Just look so damn cute)

And they sailed, they sailed so far away,
They just sailed, they sailed all night and day,
To where the panda sway"
May the colors of the Alliance fly proud in our sails!
"Oh, We've got this notion,
That we quite like to sail the ocean.
So, we're buildin' a big boat
To leave here for good

We're not keen on sinkin'
So we're all sittin' here a-thinkin'
'Cause we built it too big
An' we've run out of wood

We simply can't leave
Till we get some more wood"

The very first black and white....well played sir, well played.
Well, well. Things are coming along swimmingly.
I say we invade Orgrimmar. We just need a few mages and the Focusing Iris. *nods*
Set the sails and head out to sea! We have a war to win!
