Awww yeah, Kalimdor be G, Ashenleaf Offensive featured as an example of a unit including others outside their guild on the new Borderlands Campaign post! *happy dance*
I'm so proud of us right now. Although it did make me think of how to make sure we all look like we're from the same group. I mean, we know who we are and we have a roster of all y'all's names, but other groups and even Waywatcher himself might not, especially if there's a little fluctuation of who turns up every week due to attrition and IRL commitments. While that's also fixed by putting something in your RP Flag (MRP, TRP2, FlagRSP) about being a "Star's Fury Auxilliary" or something, that won't help ICly determine your character's unit at a glance. And this is why I kept stressing about purple armour some weeks back.
I personally love to see big groups in matching uniforms when all lined up, and it's nothing to do with stripping a character of uniqueness, far from it, and personal touches to a full uniform are perfectly fine as well. It's more about group identity, and knowing who is in which unit and also, showing up the human mercs that don't do it >:] it's especially important as our group is multiracial, and other groups will contain kaldorei in them.
So it's not a case of "elves go stand over there" and everyone knows who you're talking about. It literally is just about us, standing together, tall and proud, and everyone knows exactly who is a member of our unit, and can stand back and look at how sheerly awesome we all are.
As I mentioned some posts ago I know it's a bit unreasonable to get a lot of people from different places and guilds all in the exact same set given that we have to cater for cloth leather mail and platewearers and a variety of different character types and the confounding variables of characters individually saying "I would not be caught dead in that" or else wanting to be sure their personality or role is fully represented by their sets. Or something.
But; I still would really encourage people to turn up in our 'uniform colour' which is purple, even if it's just boots or gloves or something with some element of purple on it. At the very, very least, if that's completely undoable, one thing that is readily available from Darnassus, from the moon preistess vendor near the tree portal flight point, is the Darnassus reputation tabard. It's purple, it's... well, representative of what the Star's Fury is about. It also matches the Darnassus Battle Standard, which myself and a few other guildies have gotten after grinding the Argent Tournament, and thus will further link up our group. It's also cheap, and goes right on over whatever your char normally wears, and thus doesn't comprimise your whole outfit with something potentially OOC.
Infact; by Elune, I will grind up my cooking skill until I can make chocolate cookies. And then, during the campaign days I'll give a cookie to every member that wears a Darnassus tabard. We can use that as our standard since getting y'all in one uniform would be like herding sabers.
