Alliance-based RP-PvP guild with an emphasis on special operations, military intelligence, guerilla warfare, espionage, targeted assasination and sabotage for the nation of Kul Tiras. Kul Tiras Marines feature a particularly 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, complete 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.
We also provide an interesting context for our members to create Horde characters and enjoy the storyline on that side the faction divide, but with direct ties to our Alliance roots. Under our Horde-side charter, we wage an internal shadow war against the tyranny of the Horde's leadership, with dissident Thalassian Elves who oppose Silvermoon's alignment with the Horde, and Undead rebelling against the atrocities being committed by the leadership of Sylvannas Windrunner.
We participate in RP, RP-PvP, M+, Raids, BGs and will be active in War Mode, Warfronts and PvP Island Expeditions in BFA.
Our unit is the elite 5th Marine Reconnaissance Brigade, a special forces unit working closely with BI:6, the Kul Tiras intelligence agency equivalent to Stormwind's SI:7. BI:6 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 Companies.

IV. Kul Tiras Marines Culture
Military culture revolves around strict martial discipline, adherence to the Chain of Command and the Marine Code of Honor, a set of six tenets which is at the core of Kul Tiras Marine life.
Some marines are openly racist, particularly against Night Elves because they are suspected of having interfered with Kul Tiran efforts against the Horde in Kalimdor shortly after the Third War. We will 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.
V. Communication & Recruitment
Guildchat, Raid, Instance, party, etc. are all considered OOC channels and RP is not expected or required in any of these.
Members are required to always stay in-character in /say, /yell and /emote but may use ((OOC brackets) for short messages when necessary.
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".
VI. About the Guild
We are all adults and want to maintain a mature and casual gaming experience devoid of bullshit and drama. We embrace that this is a game we all enjoy to relax and have fun - not a job or a chore you dread. Real life comes first and we support one-another in that spirit.
The veterans of the guild have been RP-PvP'ing together since the days of Ultima Online (released 1997 - yes we're old). 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're looking to enjoy having Kul Tiras finally being put into the game in BFA and have an awesome experience for all our members!
