Aerie Peak. I was most recently sent to fetch feathers of disgruntled owlkin, but I've also been known to gather undead spines and kill diseased beasts because our doctor is too busy "researching" to actually heal people. -rueful tone of voice-
I was born to a pair of weapon crafters in the Wildhammer clan of the Hinterlands, and I just turned 18 years. Been wantin' ta join the First Regiment since I was a wee one.
-begins with a sheepish grin- My family is known for their weaponry. We supplied Aerie Peak for generations. I was supposed ta be learnin' the craft, but I couldna keep my nose outta the woods, and try as she might, me mum didnae have the time ta chase me down, what with four other young'uns to be raisin'. I tried ta be good, I did. Found peace an' quiet in the woods outside the Peak. Spent time with the gryphons. Brought a fair few back to the stables for the Masters to break. Da made me sit in for the lessons on weapon smithing, same as me brothers and sister. I suppose I learnt something there, I can swing a hammer and score a blade as well as anyone else can. But that's no big deal for me. I'd rather be in the woods, making a camp fire or cleaning some fish. T'was the gryphons what taught me how to clean'em, too.
Ahab Stonehammer be mah Da, livin' in Aerie Peak, where I come from. He'll probably outlive me by decades, being a skilled smith that doesn't take on a lot of danger. Now, don't go tellin' him I've kicked the bucket without finding my opal bracelet first, it come from his gramma. He'd sooner feed me to dragons than lose that heirloom.
No record. I found my share of mischief as a child, and there were times the clan peacekeepers thought an intervention might be necessary, but thankfully maturity and common sense set in before I could do too much damage.
I wish to enlist as an Armsman.
I'm strong as an ox and will swing my hammer twice as hard. If'n ya like, I will take up a shield as well.
The Wildhammer Clan are in an uproar. Between the invasive efforts in Draenor and now sending all available support to the Broken Isles, going to war is reality for any coming-of-age dwarf. Stormwind's First Regiment is an obvious choice, and I hope for a station near the action, where I can make a difference in the chaotic news that keeps reaching home.
Saeyida, Dwarf, Paladin, level 1. -cough-
I was passing through Elwynn Forest and happened upon four humans in a circle. I was playing a low-level rogue, so I stealthed and snuck up on the group, because I'm nosey. I heard a meeting of sorts, clarifying responsibilities and duties of those in charge. When I heard what was expected of the leadership (as well as how the recruits were expected to behave and how that behavior was to be reinforced), I knew the guild could be a good fit for my own role-play style.
I have roleplayed for over 15 years. I started in Yahoo! chat rooms, and eventually moved on to forum websites, which is why my posts can be long-winded. My first experiences with WoW roleplay were in 2008, and it was a hard adjustment from paragraphs to sentences, but definitely worth the trouble. I was living in the Netherlands when I started playing, and so my characters were all on the EU servers. I became an officer of the guild "The Regiment of Stormwind" on the Darkmoon Faire server shortly after joining, along with an old friend of mine. I remember playing through the last months of Burning Crusade, and as Wrath of the Lich King hit, my sister and her wife started playing. I made a character on their server to join them for PvE purposes only, and became part of a triad leadership for "Dies in Fires". As a raid guild, we had conflict involving loot distribution, although I remember spending hours trying to perfect a looting system to make everyone happy.
I took a break and protested Mists of Pandaria, coming back later for Warlords of Draenor.
I relocated overseas and had to start a new account (I can't access my EU account anymore. I'm STILL angry about that). I am currently a member of Selama Ashalanore on Wyrmrest Accord. I am happy there,, but I am looking for Alliance-side engagement as well.
I also enjoyed time with the Ironfang Clan on Wyrmrest Accord, in which I was Pull Runt, a young Orc recruit that enjoyed grappling on the ground. My time there ended because of RL.
Yes. I will report any such conduct.
Consider it done.
<The First Regiment> employs a great deal of fan-fiction in the overarching story of the guild and its members. Do you acknowledge that you may be asked to go along with some of the guild-written fan-fiction regarding the history and makeup of the Kingdom of Stormwind in role-play? I'm excited to share my own simple fanfiction, a short called "Sunshine". I look forward to helping the First Regiment with other such literature and will be happy to accommodate.
I understand that guild and raid chat are in character and officer chat is used as an OoC channel.
Yes. The main points are that harassment of any kind, trolling, disruptive item usage, and disrespect toward other guilds are grounds for being kicked from the guild.
Merit: Excellent conduct and contribution, including participation and leadership. Creative works and fundraising are good ideas for benefiting the guild.
The last five actions of demerit: Assaulting an Agent of the Crown, insubordination, fraternization, breaching the chain of command, and disrespect.
I have read and acknowledge the three-strike policy. The policy is very generous.
Yes, and I look forward to my character being challenged on a moral level.
I'm still fleshing Ayida out, she was an alt of mine years ago and didn't get much screen time except for tanking. I'm looking forward to seeing her come to life and have a story to tell.
