What is your full name? What is your race? Saeyida Marie Stonehammer, Dwarven Peace Keeper

What is your current place of residence, and most recent occupation? 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-

When and where were you born? 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.

Give a brief summary of your past experiences. Your youth, family, who you served, what skills or trades you learned, and any noteworthy achievements or failures.

-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.

Who would you name as your next of kin should you perish on the battlefield? What is their relation to you? Where do they live? 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.

Do you have a criminal record? If so, please explain your crimes and what punishments you endured. 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.

In which Division do you wish to serve the Stormwind Army and the Kingdom of Stormwind?
I wish to enlist as an Armsman.

Are you physically fit to serve in the way you described? Do you have any ailments or curses that would hinder you? 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.

Why do you wish to serve with the Stormwind Army? If you are not originally a subject of the kingdom, why do you wish to enlist to serve Stormwind over your homeland? 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.


Character name (must include alt codes if applicable), race, class and level: Saeyida, Dwarf, Paladin, level 1. -cough-

Where did you hear about the <The First Regiment> and why do you wish to join?
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.

Please give a brief summary of your role-playing experience. What, if any, role-playing guilds have you been part of? What were the circumstances of you leaving those guilds? Do you have any leadership experience? If you were a member of the regiment before, what were the circumstances of you leaving?

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.

<The First Regiment> is a heavy role-playing guild that has basic expectations for its members' in-character and out-of-character conduct. Do you acknowledge that trolling, harassment, "criminal" in-character actions or disobedient in-character behavior could result in punishment or removal from the guild? Yes. I will report any such conduct.

<The First Regiment> is known for issuing out uniforms to its members in order to better visually represent knights and armsmen of the Kingdom of Stormwind. While it is not a requirement for people to be a certain level to gain entry into the guild, most of our uniforms require at least level 25 to equip on a character. Lower level characters will be provided with makeshift uniforms, but lower-level equipment often does not have the same visual appeal. Do you acknowledge that you may be asked to change your outfit and mount to our uniform standard for guild events? 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.

Have you read the Guild Rules? If so, what are the main points of rule #2? I understand that guild and raid chat are in character and officer chat is used as an OoC channel.

Have you read Zero Tolerance Policy? If so, what are the main things that the guild will not tolerate?

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.

Have you read Merits and Commendations? If so, list five actions of merit and the last five actions of demerit.

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.

Have you read and do you acknowledge our Three Strike Policy? I have read and acknowledge the three-strike policy. The policy is very generous.

Due to the premise of our guild, we often present ours members with morally ambiguous situations in which morbid or gruesome imagery may be invoked. Your character may be ordered to kill other characters, creatures or animals. We however expressly forbid sexual violence in guild role-play. Do you acknowledge these disclaimers and expectations? Yes, and I look forward to my character being challenged on a moral level.

How old are you? 33.

If there is any information about your character you would like to give us out-of-character that you could not put into the in-character application, please put it here. Are there plotlines that your character is involved in that could involve the guild? 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.

Thank you! Tomorrow is a busy day (getting ready for an interstate move, ugh), but I'm hoping to be able to get some game time in the evening. Looking forward to the roleplay!
