* A note has been pinned on the board with text written on it in ink.*

" As of last night, Rikclar Rendfist has een taken captive by the Red Blades. Reasons for this are attacking several members of the Red Blades and threatening to end a tribe elder's life. So if you see the Laughing Skull being held captive, then do NOT release him unless you have the permission of the tribe's elders. the actions that are being taken are to ensure the safety of everyone, including the Laughing Skull's own safety.

Strength and honour,

"By decree of the Wolfking:

The Red Blades are looking for fresh Elders, and so anyorc wishing to train as Thur'ruk, Rrosh-tul or Varog'Gor should make their intentions clear inside of the next week -- either by speaking to an Elder, or posting a notice on this Poster-Board.

Rrosh-tul can be trained from the ranks of Nag'Ogar or Gul'thauk. They lead our forces in battle and command the warriors of the tribe.

Thur'ruk can be trained from the ranks of Gosh'kar. They are responsible for keeping us in balance with the spirits, and acting as the tribe's masters of ritual and lore.

Varog'Gor can be trained from the ranks of any orc who has sworn the Oath of Blood -- as the Chieftain's sworn shield, you must be willing to give your life for the Wolfking's at a moment's notice.

We are looking for those willing to serve and advance themselves above all. Skills and techniques can be taught -- that is why you will be trained. But heart is innate, and we are looking for those with the heart of Elders.

-High Blade Sharptongue"

((OOC explanation: looking for new officers! Message an Elder in-game for more information, and if interested, ICly contact them or post a notice in this thread. You have about a week or so until we decide who the best applicants are.

Here are the IC documents available about the Elder ranks:
Rrosh-tul
Thur'ruk
Varog'Gor))

"To all Nag'Ogars,

Are you interested in taking on the title of Alpha Nag'Ogar of the Red Blades? Well now is your chance to earn it. The tribe is headed to Azeroth for some well deserved rest. To assure our orcs don't get too familiar with a calm and relaxed lifestyle, each Nag'Ogar willing to participate in the race to the title of Alpha Nag'Ogar will need to, besides uphold their usual duties as Nag'Ogar, manage a War Training. This War Training can consist of "Follow the Alpha" tasks, to training the orcs in one on one combat, to what ever comes to mind.Every Nag'Ogar interested will get a month the time to prepare their war training and complete your war training. Not only will the Nag'Ogar be judged on their war training that they have given, but also on their behaviour, their duty fulfillment and initiatives the Nag'Ogar brings to light. The month timeframe will start the day we return to Azeroth, Tuesday the 26th and will end one month from then.

Any Nag'Ogar interested can contact Rrosh-tul Rimeweaver to show their interests. Contacting the Rrosh-tul after the month countdown has started will not grant extra time in to fulfulling the set requirements. Good luck to each and every Nag'Ogar!

Strength,

- Rrosh-tul Gridish Rimeweaver"

(( OOC note: As stated in the post, the countdown of the month timeframe will start on Tuesday the 26th of May and will end on the 24th of June. If you have any questions, you can always send me a PM, contact me on skype or in-game! ))

"The tribe have currently placed an Iron Horde turncoat by the name of Ironwing under our custody. She has been disarmed, imprisoned and wounded by an arrow.

Consider her under a probationary period of proving she can be trusted, something that will be a tough matter indeed given her snide words for our orcs, and attempting to attack another. Should she attack any of our tribe or be found to be acting dishonestly again, do not hesitate to immediately put her to the blade and execute her with extreme prejudice.

* A fresh looking scroll is rolled out and pinned on the message board*

" Tonight's siege up on the Fel Forge was a bittersweet victory. As we've retrieved the information we were after, a missing piece to Akesh' plans, and the where abouts of Akesh himself, we lost one of our own tonight. Marnosh Ragescar gave his life tonight so the tribe can continue their search and bring justice upon Akesh and clan Felblade. To make sure Ragescar's death, we shall be acting swiftly and accordingly to put an end to Akesh and hs clan felblade. Tuesday we will be striking Ironhold Harbor to retrieve the missing link to Akesh' plan. After that we will be preparing our final strike to clan Felblade, the heart of clan Felblade, Akesh himself.

Any orc up for the task, be ready on Tuesday the first of september. Let's put an end to this insanity.

Strength and honour,

- Gridish Rimeweaver.

*An official-looking notice pinned to the Poster Board*

"For the attention of the Path of Strength -- Rrosh-tul, Nag'Ogar and Nag'Ogar trainees,

By the authority of the High Blade, Thur'ruk Rhonya Steelheart is to be escorted and supervised by a member of the Path of Strength at all times, save for when I am present myself, or when she specifically requests to be alone.

This order is in place until the end of the Kosh'harg Festival. It has been made because of a possible threat to her, to ensure her safety.

Should you require more information, do not hesitate to speak with me.

"To all members of the tribe,
A small pack lead by Gosh'Kar Kogra Windwatcher set out to retrieve the final ingrediënt for a  ritual that she performed later that night. The result was a foul smelling brew that will protect you from the diseases that the infected wildlife carry with them. For your own safety, it is highly recommended to drink from the brew.

Strength and Honour,

Rrosh'tul Rimeweaver."

*A notice pinned to the Poster Board:*

Wolfking Kozgugore Feraleye, the Chieftain of the Red Blades, had this address to make at the tribe's tenth anniversary event this evening:

Quote
"In the clan village I grew up in, the elders used to speak of an old wolf that roamed the nearby wilds. Kra-Norak was his name. He was said to have but one eye left, as well as a missing front paw. And yet, he was the one most feared by all the hunters.

Such was his ferocity, that even the greatest of our hunters would avoid him. Because they knew well what experience the old dog had. A creature can be judged by its scars, and Kra-Norak was truly unmatched in the amount he carried.

It was said that throughout his life, he faced a great number of tribulations. Among which, he lost both eye and paw - even his own pack - because of it. And yet, he endured. He adapted to his circumstances, and pressed on to rise above himself.

I believe this is how many of the greatest creatures and packs can be judged. You can cut off a limb from a beast, yet through willpower alone, it can be overcome. That weakness, can be turned into strength.

Throughout these past years, this tribe, too, has had some of its limbs cut off. Some of our orcs were killed. Others abandoned, or betrayed. And some, forever lost to the Wilds.

And yet each time this tribe took a heavy blow, losing its orcs in the process, others arose to take over the banner and to continue carrying it high.

To me, that is true strength. Not a display of brawn and sheer numbers. But the ability to adapt and to endure. To keep pressing on, even in the sight of defeat or disappointment.

Today, it has been -ten- years since our banner was first raised by none other than Matriarch Akesha Redblade. And to this day, I see orcs holding its colours high with each passing day, taking over the places of those that no longer stand with us.

Let their names be remembered. But most importantly, let the name Redblade be remembered. For it has been the name upon many orcs' lips for a decade long, when the notion of orcish unity and honour was at stake.

A place to band together and to remember what being a true orc is about. A place to remember our traditions. And a place to fight for the future of our kin.

So today, let us give praise to all those who have fought to keep the banner high throughout this decade, and those who carry it to this very day! And let us give praise to the home that many of us have found here - for home is people, not a place!

Red Blade is our home - and it is a home worth fighting for until we go to meet our ancestors!

For the Blood of the Tribe!"

Matriarch Akesha Redblade, founder of the tribe, also addressed the orcs for the first time in five years:

Quote
"I see some faces here I recognise. Some of you are old friends... but others are new to me. At least one of you has said to me, 'I thought you were a legend, an old myth'. I am not. I am just an orc. An orc like you. Like all of you.

I was born in wartime. The daughter of a monster in a time of monsters and I grew up a prisoner. This is not our world. We were made slaves and brought here to fight another's war. We were captured and held in bondage.

The one thing that I knew is that orcs shall never be slaves again! I see your faces and I see the faces of free people. Orcs in charge of their own destiny. Many forces have tried to break us, but we will not break! We will not bow down again, because we shall live and die free!

I came back to see how my old tribe fares and I can see it is in safe hands. Ten years the Red Blade has stood for the freedom of orcs and for a hundred more let it stand until we are all legends!

Red Blades, I salute you all."

*A hastily written note upon some tattered parchment has been pinned to the notice board*

"To all tribes' orcs and allies alike - Tread with caution when traversing the lands of the barrens, a lone orc atop a large worg has been seen harassing various members of the tribe and strangers alike, - A hooded female wielding two enchanted daggers. An orc not of the tribe severely wounded a few night's past via this unnamed assailants blades', could be a Garrosh loyalist, extremely dangerous. Poisoned blades, very quick and very agile, barely just bested her myself before she fled on wolf-back. Has taken extreme interest in Throatrender, advised for any orc not to travel alone in the dead of night."

IC Taskboard
A Wooden board has been put up in the camp, the center of it having the mark of the Red blade tribe. Carved into the Top of the board is the words "Red blade Taskboard". Various scrolls and notes containing requests to the orcs have already been hung on the board.
(Ooc: This is something the Officer team have been working on for a little time, to make something to do for everybody beside the three major event days we got each week, The Ic Taskboard is both for orcs of the tribe to post notices, like if they are looking for a hunt, or are in need someone to do something their own char can't do, for example a warrior having found a cursed place that needs cleansing, or a Shaman in need of ritualistic stuff that are to dangerous to handle alone. each task posted is for a minimum of 3 players preferable more. The officer team will sometimes post "requests" from the camp we are currently in. If you decide to take a certain task, you make an Ic reply in the thread telling you take the note or such, and then it is up to you to make an event out of it, or to go help the person (if it is a fellow tribes orc) Do their event in whatever role you might be needed in)

Worgen Trouble:

Members of the Horde.
Ever since the war was over and we were left with only a small force to hold these lands, The Worgen of Solstice Village and Silverbrook have grown bolder and stronger. They have several times sent hunting parties after our supply routes and attacked our allies at camp Oneqwah. We do not have the forces to deal with them, and we ask that you gather a hunting party and to quell their numbers.

Signed Barracks Master Rhekku.

Spirit Cleansing:

Members of the Horde.
This region was once home to a world tree, which got destroyed in the sundering. Fragments of this tree litter the area and the demonic energies that were present have seemingly corrupted them. I ask that any shaman, Mage or Warlock with the knowledge to do so, cleanse these trees before the corruption takes deeper root into the soil. I must warn you though, the corruption have taken form and attacks any and all who gets near the center, so bring fighters to watch your back.

Signed  Magistrix Phaelista

Food shortage:

Members of the Horde.
While this Region is full of life that could feed the our forces, and trees to keep a fire going, the Vrykul to the souteast demand the most of our forces, leaving none to gather food or wood. I would ask of any capable hunter, who wishes to strenghten the position of the horde in Grizzly hills, to gather like minded Members of the horde, and lead a hunting party to gather food and/or Wood for the Garrison, so we can continue to fight the enemies of our Horde and in the end Claim this region.

Signed Barracks Master Rhekku.

In Need of Intelligence:

Members of the Horde.
To the east of us lies the area known as Grizzlemaw and Rage Fang shrine. Were two Tribes of Furbolgs are fighting for unknown reasons. We need any Member of the Horde able to move silently and gather intel without getting noticed, to spy on these two Tribes, to figure out what causes the aggression, and if needed where we will have to strike to stop them from attack us, should the winner of this conflict turn their forces towards us.  This is prefered to done throughly so to better cover the area, the large party the better.

Signed Barracks Master Rhekku.
