Topic [AD RP] Ironforge Mountaineers - To the Borderlands!
Ironforge Mountaineers is a guild – nay, the guild! – for Dwarven Mountaineers. Our main objective is to provide an authentic unit of Ironforge Mountaineers to the battles and campaigns all over Azeroth, where the united armies of the Alliance require the assistance of dwarven rifles and hammers.
We aim for quality, but through friendly measures. The military elements of the guild are fairly light, and mixed up with adventure, scouting, camping and patrolling. Although our lads and lasses sometimes assist the law-enforcement when needed, Ironforge Mountaineers aren’t really city guards, but rangers for the Army of Ironforge.
A GUILD OF MANY EVENTS
The guild roleplaying is fairly focused around events. Our most common event days are Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, and events are usually scheduled between 19:00 and 23:00. Despite that we frequently offer patrol and training events, one should not join the guild expecting that all roleplaying is handed to him from above. The majority of daily RP is of course done through casual roleplaying by your own initiative.
Once in a while, the guild hosts bigger events that are often available for multiple characters or even whole server. Such events include the Highlands Campaign, Northrend Expedition and the upcoming Borderlands Campaign.
• The Highlands Campaign was possibly the biggest war-effort played on Argent Dawn server. It was played in March 2011, you can find more information on it from the following links:
• The Borderlands Campaign, while very different in its concept, seems to be building even bigger than the Highlands Campaign. It will begin 26th of March 2012. You can find more info of it here:
• A Mountaineer’s Challenge is a frequently hosted event for individual characters that includes elements from classic RPGs (dice-rolls, experience points, game master). This adventure is open for even people outside the guild, but the spots are often limited. Read more of it here:
We actively try to take part to other guilds' events as well, and have played a central part for example in the Twilight Hammer's (2011) events of Aletheia: Inside the Fallen Kingdom and Discordia.

The Great Draft continues in Argent Dawn until 26th day! This is a great chance to get booked up to the dwarven company of green, and take part in the Borderlands Campaign that begins afterwards.
The Borderlands Campaign is very likely going to be the biggest roleplayed war-effort every played in WoW. There's over 40 guilds involved at the moment, and not even counting all the individual roleplayers.
