Kul Tiras Marines is an Alliance-based military RP-PvP guild with an emphasis on special operations, military intelligence, guerilla warfare, espionage, targeted assasination and sabotage for the nation of Kul Tiras. We are the tip of the spear for the fighting forces of the island nation of Kul Tiras.
II. RP Goals
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 have a highly antagonistic and xenophobic culture against the Horde in contrast to the weak, pacifist tone of Stormwind.
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.
III. PvP & PvE Activities
We participate in a variety of activities:
RP-PvP Campaigns War Mode & WPvP Battlegrounds Island Expeditions Warfronts Mythic+ Dungeons Raids, Normal difficulty on a non-toxic casual level that respects our RP priorities and tradition
Cadets go through an extensitve Bootcamp campaign at the Proudmoore Academy as part of the recruitment process, covering a mix of PvP and "education" covering Kul Tiras lore and topics in the Kul Tiras Marine Field Manual such as Shipboard Operations, Reconnaissance and Intelligence Gathering, Combat, etc.
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.
Alpha Company <Kul Tiras Marines>

Thalassian Elves (High Elves working undercover as Blood Elves)
Forsaken who reject the curse forced on them by the Lich King and Sylvannas Windrunner, including the Undying Marines who remain loyal to Kul Tiras, even in death.
Kul Tiras Marines also features occupational divisions that emphasize a particular part of our RP:
Boralus Intelligence (BI:6)
BI:6 is the espionage and intelligence gathering division of Kul Tiras Marines. This organization is analogous to Stormwind's SI:7, with a philosophy that "Doing what is right and doing what is necessary are not always the same thing". BI:6 will utilize burtal, destructive methods which are not publicly acknowledged or condoned, but are carried out as a necessary evil for the greater good.
Marine Corps of Engineers (MCE)
Development of specialized weapons and technologies are necessary to maintain an edge over the enemies of Kul Tiras.The Navy and Marines have always maintained close ties with the people of Gnomeregan ever since the Second War where many Kul Tiran fleets were protected by brave gnomish submariners. A fairly large population of Gnomes decided to make Kul Tiras their home after the Second War and the eventual irradiation of Gnomeregan by Thermaplugg. Many have continued their sea-fairing ways as part of the Marine Corps of Engineers.
Proudmoore Academy (PA)
The next generation of Sailors and Marines go through basic training at the Proudmoore Academy. Drill Instructors and Cadets muster to undertake exercises and training missions, continuing the time-honored tradition of the Proudmoore Admiralty in creating the best-trained, most capable and most effective Naval fighting force in the whole of Azeroth.
Kul Tiras High Command:
Lord/Lady Admiral of Kul Tiras (NPC)
Fleet Admiral (NPC)
Captain (Capt.) (Guildmaster)
Lieutenant Commander (LCDR)
Sergeant Major (SgtMaj.)
Warrant Officer (WO)
Master Sergeant (MSgt)
Gunnery Sergeant (GySgt.)
Lance Corporal (LCpl.)
Private First Class (PFC)
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 involvement in the disappearance of Lieutenant Alverold's expedition around the coast of Kalimdor during 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 was previously viewed as a traitor for her role in Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore's death. Due to recent events with the treachery of House Ashvane being exposed and Lady Proudmoore subsequently saving the Kul Tiran fleet from Lord Stormsong and Lady Azshara's magical imprisonment in an ethereal storm, we now swear fealty to Lady Proudmoore as the new Lord Admiral of Kul Tiras - but many individual Marines and Sailors may still not have full confidence in her leadership due to her history of exercising poor judgment.

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 created the guild during the pre-vanilla Beta and set up on launch day on the Bleeding Hollow PvP server when it was the sole "unofficial" RP-PvP server. We transferred to Maelstrom RP-PvP server the day it launched, along with many RP guilds at the time.
We moved to Emerald Dream during the second half of Legion and are recruiting!
