I do

My apologies, but this application is denied. Your character is not a good fit for <The First Regiment>. You claim Aramil has come into direct contact with heroes of lore, so seeing him shift down to the rank of recruit would be a bit out of place. I encourage you to seek out another more appropriate guild. You may also re-apply with another character, if you would like.

Thank you for considering us!

How can it be out of place? Lordaeron has no standing army anymore, so previous rank does not matter. The book only referred to Aramil as an assistant to Turalyon during the Second War, and no piece of warcraft lore talked about him eversince. I tried to enlist in the stormwind army of course everyone starts as a recruit. But since you denied my application due to the fact that the character came in contact with notable heroes, then by that reason alone you should deny all world of warcraft players.

Dear sir, I suppose I should let you be aware that Aramil is a real life friend of mine and with other RL friends we all transfered servers to join the first regiment.

And to support Aramil, he is a civilian that served an assistant correct?

Perhaps being a person who lost stature and who wants to start fresh as a recruit to the new stormwind army is worthy of reconsideration? Starting a new life again amidst all that has happened across the kingdoms and worlds is not an impossibility I suppose.

The problem is that Aramil (the player) claims to be Aramil (the lore character). That's problematic. Our characters have, yes, interacted with heroes of lore to some degree. But none of us claim to be in direct contact with them In-Character. It'd be confusion between in-game mechanics and the IC reality of RP.

To quote the issue:"The book only referred to Aramil as an assistant to Turalyon during the Second War, and no piece of warcraft lore talked about him eversince."

Again, it is the fact that you're RPing as an established lore character, that can claim some kind of direction connection with Turalyon, that is the issue. I'm emphasizing the need for an original character, more than anything.

Warrolf, your friend is free to reapply. I'm locking this thread in the meantime. Feel free to send me any questions or concerns via private message on the website.
