This is me testing the shoutbox, because shouting is a great stress relief and it would be a shame if it doesn't work.

We Return!

Welcome back!

Thanks to the aid and input of Drevan, Kargnar, Trakmar, Kogra, Noshmarak and Groshnok, we can now officially say that Orcs of the Red Blade as a guild is coming back, and we intend to do so better than ever!

As you might have seen on the website, there's a bunch of changes that the guild has been subjected to. The result of several weeks of discussions and restless nights! If you have any questions in particular regarding any of these changes or the guild's new concept, feel free to take a look at our updated Frequently Asked Questions. Alternatively, or if you can't find the answer there, feel free to ask your questions - or simply to exclaim your excitement (or hatred) - in this topic! The full length of all the information you need to know about our upcoming campaign will follow in this post, but additional information can also be found on the Argent Dawn forums' thread.

A Return To Greatness Awaits!

It's been a little while in the making, but here it is! Orcs of the Red Blade is back!

A great, special thanks goes to Drevan (also known as Azuril also known as Sakareth) for his immense help in bringing the website and that which was once thought lost back up and running! What you see in front of you would not have been possible without him!

Eight months ago, we announced the guild's official hiatus due to various circumstances that made an intermission of activities the most prudent course of action. But, after a decent spell of recharging our creative energies, exploring our options and simply kicking back with some Tol Barad Coconut Rum in the Stranglethorn sun, we decided to come back out of retirement and continue our adventures once more! There is, however, a tiny snag...

We need YOUR help to do it!


The Campaign
In order to set the stage for our return, we've prepared an intricate campaign that will welcome back both the new and the old. This campaign will begin an entirely new chapter for the guild. We're turning a completely blank page! A 'soft reboot,' as it were, in order to reinvent the guild in an updated style that will allow for even more Lok'tar to your Ogar in future guild RP! And the best thing about it? You don't need to have any prior knowledge or relation to the guild in order to participate!

  • Are you a (former) Red Blade player and want to make a return? That's great!
  • Are you new to the Red Blade but would love to take part in the introductory campaign and possibly become a future member? That's even better!
Due to the nature of the campaign, however, it's required that anyone who wishes to participate in the campaign signs up in advance. This can be done either in this very thread, on the guild's website or by contacting me personally. When doing so, please specify - in short - what kind of orc your character is. Will he or she be your typical warrior? More of a spiritualist? Or perhaps not special or ambitious at all? Regardless of the nature of your orc, we'll be able to find a place for him or her in our campaign, as there will be several different ways to join while still ensuring the story remains personal to your orc!

The starting date of our campaign - and so its first event - will be on Sunday the 26th of November. After that, there will be three events per week. Which exact days those events will be on, will depend entirely on the results of a poll we would like all of our participants to fill in - the link for which you will receive after you signed up. This way, we wish to ensure that as many people as possible will be able to attend all of the crucial events without having to miss out on all the good stuff.

The goal of the campaign will not only be to serve as an introduction to the new iteration of the Red Blade, however. It will also serve to allow you to gradually shape your future role in the guild accordingly - even to the point that potential leaders may have a chance to stand up! Throughout the campaign, themes and elements that will represent the guild in its envisioned shape and form will be introduced to give just a taste of what people can expect as future members. And in the process, you'll be making friends and kickstarting your orc into a position of his or her ambition along the way!

Can't make it to the 26th? We got you covered there as well, amigo! There will be several ways and dates to enter our campaign. So even if the short IC introduction down below doesn't appeal to you, we can still find you an alternate entry into the campaign! Do note that you might miss out on one or two initial events if you do, but it will all be fit perfectly into the story!

For any further questions, feel free to take a look on our website which has a plethora of information to offer as well as a FAQ, or contact me on Battle.net on Lemonpie39#2659.

So, are you looking for a brand new experience to dip you orc in? Wait no longer, for this is the perfect opportunity to get involved! We hope to see you sharing the roads to glory with us!


The In Character Part
The following will be the 'standard' means by which to join our campaign. Are you not able to make it to the 26nd or would you prefer to join via an alternate mean that might suit your character better such as a spiritual route or as a grunt? Don't hesitate to contact yours truly!

A letter is snuck into your hand by a cloaked figure that is brawny enough to be an orc without any shadow of a doubt. Before you have a chance to turn and grasp or even look at him, however, he is already gone. Its contents are written in hand, accompanied by a hastily scraweled map that points to a desolate location in the Stonetalon Mountains.

QuoteFriend,

I write to you in haste, for time is of the essence and eyes are everywhere. Even now, agents of the enemy threaten to silence me. I do not know their intent, nor do I know how it is that they have burrowed themselves so deeply into our society. They live among us; share our roofs and eat our food. Even in Orgrimmar, none are safe from their clutches. What I do know with certainty, is that you are in danger. You may have no cause to trust me or see reason in my words, but see reason in this: the spirits themselves cry out for blood.

I have enclosed a map that shall lead you to a desolate camp in the Stonetalon Mountains. Meet me there on the 26th day of the 11th month. I promise you answers and refuge there. In the meantime, see to your blood kin should you have any. They too may be exposed.

Trust no one.

Signed,
Kozgugore Feraleye

I feel like I'm the only sane one in this Tribe. And I have four elementals living in my skull!

I miiiight be able to dig up old Sresre on the 28th and 29th. Unfortunately, work on the 26th. Can't promise anything at this point though..

To make this common knowledge now, I'll not be able to make the event on the 26th. Unfortunately I'm flying back from California around then, so will be jet-lagged to heck. Will be back with you soon though!

Kozgugore

No worries there! Anyone who's not able to make it to the 26th but does want to get involved in the campaign still, can be offered several different ways through which to join in if he or she so pleases! Feel free to give me a poke if you (or anyone else for that matter) would like to find a way for it. :)
