Ranks




he First Regiment has a robust Ranking System that was designed to offer and encourage leadership opportunities and character advancement for all of its members. As the first regiment's concept primarily involves role-playing military action, many of its ranks reflect the regiment of the Stormwind Royal Army that makes up the bulk of the guild.

However, not every player who joins the regiment seeks to or is eligible to role-play their character in a military capacity in the scope of the guild. To account for such, we have incorporated a clear path for advancement and several Divisions that do not require players' characters to enlist in the royal army.

Rank in the regiment does not come without responsibility. Ranks above the rank of Private require monthly event leadership. Depending on a character's rank, they may host certain types of events upon officer approval:

  • Social Events, or events that don't accomplish any role-played duty, but build camaraderie between the participants through fun and games. Social events are not typically accounted for when considering individual promotions or demotions. Anyone may host social events.
  • Patrol Events, or events where the event leader takes a band of members on patrol around the current deployment area to complete a task relevant to the regiment's scope of role-play. To be considered worthy of merit, the participants in the event should encounter a challenge that they must overcome - either through interaction with players outside of the guild or through dungeon mastered conflict. Privates and above may lead patrol events within the Kingdom of Stormwind. Corporals and above may lead patrol events when the regiment deployed outside the kingdom.
  • Training Events, or events where the event leader teaches a band of members something relevant to the scope of the guild. To be considered worthy of merit, the content of the training must contain information that improves upon the members' abilities to complete their general duties in the guild's role-play. Corporals and above may lead military training events, while Auxiliaries may host training events specific to their character's expertise.
  • Combat Events, or events where the event leader takes a band of members on a mission where battle will be encountered either actively or passively against a hostile foe and is relevant to the regiment's scope of role-play. To be considered worthy of merit, the participants in the event should encounter a challenge that they must overcome. Combat features may be included in any type of event and requires the presence and approval of a Sergeant or higher.
  • Division Events, or events where the event leader guides a band of members through a ceremony, situation, or training pertaining to a specific division in the guild. To be considered worthy of merit, the content of the division event must be informative of the division that it is intended to be for. Each division has its own set of credentials for hosting an event in the division.
  • Campaign Events, or events pertaining to a specific campaign planned out by the officers of the guild. Campaign events take precedence on the calendar if two events are planned for the same time. Lord's Council members and above may lead mission events.

In general, a member can only have one of their characters at a rank higher than Private at a time. Special exceptions may be made if a member is active in a leadership capacity on more than one character in the guild.

If you have any questions regarding ranks or their responsibilities, do not hesitate to contact one of the guild's officers via a Website Message or in-game!




f a character is a human, dwarf, gnome, or high elf, and seeks to enlist in the royal army, they are sworn into service at the rank of Recruit. Recruits should obtain their uniform and participate in guild events, learning the rules and procedures associated with the guild.

After completing their basic training and attending several guild events, recruits are deemed eligible to be promoted to the rank of Private. Privates are expected to follow all protocol learned in training and will be held accountable for their actions. Privates may lead their fellow soldiers and recruits on simple patrols throughout the Kingdom of Stormwind, though may not deliberately seek out combat unless accompanied by a superior.

Those deemed worthy of additional responsibility may attempt to rise through the military ranks through active leadership in the guild, beginning with the initial staff rank of Corporal. Corporals are expected to seek out role-play with new recruits and act as mentors to help them achieve the rank of Private. They are also expected to host at least one patrol event per month. Corporals who are found to not have interacted with recruits or hosted the required number of events per month will be reviewed for demotion to Private.

Corporals who are deemed creative and proactive in interacting with their peers and subordinates may be considered for promotion to Sergeant. Sergeants must be willing to coordinate interaction between Recruits, Privates, and Corporals, and must make a bimonthly report to the officers outlining their observations of their subordinates. They are expected to host at least one training or patrol event per month. They also are expected to act as disciplinary officers, reprimanding and punishing soldiers who do not adhere to protocol. They should be able to handle disputes between guild members with friendly professionalism. Sergeants who are found to not meet any one of these base expectations will be reviewed for demotion to Corporal.

Sergeants who maintain their rank and go above and beyond expectation for an extended period of time may be considered for knighting amongst the Brotherhood of the Horse for their service to the crown. Only knights of the brotherhood may be considered for promotion to the rank of Knight-Lieutenant. Knight-Lieutenants are junior officers of the guild and are expected to be able to answer any question about the regiment's structure and current events. They are expected to attempt to recruit one new member for the guild per month. They are expected to lead at least one event every month. They are expected to receive reports from Sergeants and give reasonable input regarding promotions, demotions, and campaign planning to their superiors. They should be able to handle disputes between guild members with friendly professionalism. They should be able to communicate and coordinate role-play with other guilds on behalf of the regiment. Knight-Lieutenants who fail to meet these basic expectations will be reviewed for demotion to Sergeant.

Knight-Lieutenants who maintain their rank and go above and beyond expectation for an extended period of time may be considered for promotion to the rank of Knight-Captain. Knight-Captains are expected to act as leaders of the regiment in the absence of the Lord-Marshal. With that being said, Knight-Captains are expected to be able to communicate effectively with the entire guild and promote role-play between all members and divisions. They are expected to attempt to recruit one new member for the guild per month. They are expected to lead at least one event every month. They are expected to receive performance reports from Sergeants and propose reasonable promotions and demotions to the Lord-Marshal every month. They should be able to handle disputes between guild members with friendly professionalism. They should be able to communicate and coordinate role-play with other guilds on behalf of the regiment. They should be able to propose and lead campaigns for the guild if such is called upon them. Knight-Captains who fail to meet these basic expectations will be reviewed for demotion to Knight-Lieutenant.

The Lord-Marshal is the guild leader, charged with writing the policy of the guild, the content of its campaigns, the ranks of its members, and its history in conjunction with the other officers of the guild.




ot every character who joins the regiment seeks to or is eligible to role-play in a military capacity. In these cases, members are assigned to support roles that complement and assist the military aspects of role-play and are given the rank of Auxiliary.

Those in supporting roles do not gain rank as typical soldiers do but progress through long-term participation, exemplary behavior, and leadership of events that reflect their supporting role. Each non-military division has its own structure of ranks. If a member in a support role stands out amongst their peers as a creative and compelling writer who is worthy of leadership, they may be appointed to the Lord's Council at the guild leader's discretion.




eading one of the regiment's many Divisions as part of the Lord's Council is a great responsibility that should not be sought or taken lightly. In short, Division Leaders must treat their position as leading their own guild within the regiment while upholding the standards of the guild. They are expected to keep track of all members of their division and ensure that each member upholds their division's standards. They must attempt to recruit one member into the guild for their division per month. They must actively encourage and assist their division's members with progression in their division. They are expected to lead at least one division event every month. They should be able to handle disputes between division members with friendly professionalism. They should be able to communicate and coordinate role-play with other guilds on behalf of their division. They should be able to propose and lead campaigns for the guild if such is called upon them. Division Leaders who fail to meet these basic expectations will be reviewed for demotion from the position.
