Alliance-based, dual-faction RP-PvP guild specializing in military intelligence, reconnaissance & special operations for the nation of Kul Tiras with a violent, antagonistic culture against the Horde in contrast to the more pacifist tone of Stormwind.
The Marines are committed to the dismantling of the Horde as a world power, extermination of the Orcs as an invasive parasitic species, restoration of the lands Eastern Kingdoms to it's rightful peoples, and a return to the world order which existed prior to the Orcish invasion of the First War.
II. Ranks & Structure
Our unit is the 5th Marine Reconnaissance Brigade, and have a presence on both the Alliance (Alpha Company) and the Horde (Bravo Company) as part of our RP. Members are strongly encouraged but not required to maintain a character in both Alpha and Bravo Company.
Alpha Company (Alliance) < Kul Tiras Marines > Traditional military unit specializes in Marine Reconnaissance and Special Operations. Marines consist of Humans (including those afflicted with the Worgen curse), Dwarves, Gnomes and Thalassian Elves (Void Elves). Other races are only accepted on a case-by-case basis as agents for Boralus Intelligence (Kul Tiras' equivalent to Stormwind's SI:7 spy agency), but only after completing bootcamp on their Marine.
Bravo Company (Horde) < Kul Tiras Marine > Undercover agents for Boralus Intelligence. Consists of Thalassian Elves and the Undying Marines, the dead who have rejected the curse forced upon them by the Lich King and Sylvannas Windrunner. Working within the Blood Elf and Forsaken structures, Bravo Company emphasizes espionage, sabotage and spreading of misinformation & propaganda. Bravo Company will also engage targets whom we consider threats within the Alliance (Pirate-themed guilds, etc.).
Kul Tiras High Command: Lord/Lady Admiral of Kul Tiras (NPC) Fleet Admiral (NPC) Captain (Capt.) (Guildmaster)
Officers: Lieutenant (Lt.)
Non-Comissioned Officers: Sergeant Major (SgtMaj.) Warrant Officer (WO)
Enlisted: Gunnery Sergeant (GySgt.) Sergeant (Sgt.) Corporal (Cpl.) Lance Corporal (LCpl.) Private First Class (PFC) Private (Pvt.) Recruit (Rec.)
III. RP Goals
Provide a venue for Alliance players who want to RP a well structured special forces military unit and give them a context to create Horde characters and enjoy the storyline on that side the faction divide, but with an interesting and unique context with a direct tie to their stronger Alliance-centric allegiances.
Provide a venue for Horde players to RP dissident Thalassian Elves who oppose Silvermoon's alignment with the Horde, and Undead who are unhappy with having been raised from the dead and the continued desecration of their friends' and families' graves, as well as their opposition to the atrocities being committed in their name by the Forsaken under the leadership of Sylvannas Windrunner.
Kul Tiras Marines Culture
Military culture of strict martial discipline and adherence to the Chain of Command with a strong maritime element. We follow the Marine Code of Honor, a set of six tenets which sets the pace for how Marines live, work, fight and die.
Some marines have a bit of a xenophobic streak against Night Elves because we see them as having contributed to the death of Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, but we still work with some Night Elves on an individual basis separate from their overall leadership when our interests align (or if we view them as "one of the good ones").
Jaina Proudmoore is viewed as a traitor for her role in Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore's death. We will accept former Theramore residents who served under Jaina Proudmoore, but they must prove their loyalty to Kul Tiras in bootcamp.
IV. Communication & Recruitment
Members are required to always speak in-character in /say. Other channels such as /guild, /party, /instance, etc. are considered (OOC) channels.
Recruits will undergo an extensive Bootcamp campaign as part of the recruitment process, which includes Shipboard Operations, Reconnaissance and Zoology on the animalistic Horde species. This involves WPvP, battlegrounds and classroom "education".
V. About the Guild
We are all adults and want to maintain a mature and casual gaming experience devoid of drama. Real life comes first.
Core of the guild has been RP-PvP'ing together since the days of Ultima Online. In WoW, we are originally from the Bleeding Hollow PvP server when it was the sole "unofficial" RP-PvP server, and transferred to Maelstrom RP-PvP server the day it launched.
We just moved to Emerald Dream-US and are recruiting!
