[H-RP] Hand of the Titans is recruiting!

Moonglade / Steamwheedle Cartel / The Sha'tar
The Hand of the Titans remains open to new roleplayers on Moonglade, Steamwheedle Cartel and The Sha'tar! We are a well-established guild with wide connections, with 8 years of history. I’ll start a bit of an introduction of our motivations, before getting into how we’re set up and what you can expect from us.
“We live in a world with great threats. Azeroth is in danger of corruption and destruction. The demonic hordes of the Burning Legion. The deep-seeded corruption and machinations of the Old Gods. Threats and forces in the world that would slay or enslave us. There once existed safeguards and guardians to shield us from the tides of darkness, but the safety of this world lies now in mortal hands. The need remains to stand ready and shield our people and our world from any threat. In this new age, the Hand of the Titans fights to remove what corruption lingers on this world, and secure a future for our people. To stand with the Hand now means to stand vigilant within the Horde, to deal with threats to the inhabitants of Azeroth, wherever they may emerge. For the Horde!"
-Champion Anroka Scaleslicer.

“The Burning Legion, has been defeated. The impossible has been accomplished. But our world lies broken, and with new and old threats exposed. We have not been afforded time to lick our wounds. While Azeroth bleeds, and much remains to be done to secure out lands, the Horde and Alliance have delved back into war. In the wake of Darnassus burning and the loss of Undercity, the future of the Horde, and what it means to march under that banner, is at stake. With new lands, new threats and new allies drawing our attention, and the survival of Azeroth at stake, there is no shortage of things to fight against. Or fight for.”

How are we set up?
We are a RP guild first and foremost. The order is led by Anroka, supported by a team of Officers. We have all eight guild bank tabs. Our guild chat is Out Of Character. Officers chat /o is open to all and used as In Character communication channel. We are loosely divided into four factions within the guild, based on the primary expertise of members. We are not a military order with very strict discipline, but we do have a command structure. We count many groups as allies and try to be an active part of the community. Roleplay-wise we are best described as an adventuring guild, with wide connections, and affiliations with many other factions. Primarily the Horde, but also many neutral ones.

“So what is the goal of the Hand of the Titans? In this new age, the task now falls to the mortal races to step up and take up the role as guardians of the world of Azeroth, the gift of the Titans. As the cult of the Twilight Hammer seeks to undo all of creation, we seek to preserve it.”

What can you expect from our guild?
Out Of Character we are a connected and social group of friendly people. In Character we are a group united in loyalty, overlapping goals and usefulness to each other. We are a guild dedicated to offering RP in great varieties of genre, PvE, events, RP combat and social activities. We are well established, with an active player base. We often run old content.

Overall, the goal is to provide a good environment for our players; a helpful basis from which to explore the aspects of the game, alone and as a group. While some of our events and storylines are within the guild alone, we strive to be connected with the rest of the server when we can; participating in, and sometimes running, server-wide events.

“We are enemies of corruption, and look to the Creators for wisdom and a path to follow. We seek to preserve the beautiful world of Azeroth. Our goal is to oppose the agents of corruption where we can, and to grow strong doing so.”

What sort of members do we seek?
We seek members who would like to RP, want to be part of an involved group of people and would enjoy the opportunity join a guild such as ours. We’re open to all races and classes, in principle. It’s all about how you handle your character. There are a million reasons why anyone might seek to join the Hand. Whether you are a powerful demonslayer, a scholar of history, a concerned grunt or magister, or a mercenary looking to make a buck fighting for a good cause, most will find they have goals overlapping with ours, especially in these times of conflict that threatens us all.

Evil characters are allowed within our guild, especially if they are not open with such intentions, but if your usual activities include corrupting citizens in the streets or feasting on the souls of the innocent, our guild is not the place for you. Out of character, tolerance towards people of all genders/orientations/races, adherence to WoW guidelines, RP etiquette and decent grasp of the English language are appreciated. "i c4n haz Gild plox?"-people need not apply. Much knowledge of WoW lore isn't required, as long as you are adaptable and keep in mind that your fellow members and their storylines will involve it to a decent extent. If you would like some aid in working out your character, we would be happy to give you advice. Experienced roleplayers are always welcome, but those new to it are very welcome too. As long as you have the willingness to get learn, we are more than happy to support you.

“What sort of people do we seek? Ours is a varied group. People from all walks of life may take up our banner and stand by us. Though heroes wielding blades of righteousness are welcome, an assassin or mercenary may be equally motivated to strike a blow to those who threaten this world. A shrewd politician or a tailor that enjoys gathering rumors could prove as advantageous to furthering our goals as a powerful spellcaster or an explorer that seeks relics of the Titans. Purity is not a perquisite for joining us, for one cannot change one’s past, just a willingness to stand against those who would spread corruption and destruction.”

How do you join the guild?
We are selective about who we let into our ranks. We like to be sure that people interested in joining us will fit well with our people, characters and guild aims. As said above; many will. In reading this thread you’ve taken the first step. The next step will be to arrange an IC interview. You can whisper Anroka, Gosa, Asperia, Caerule, Xyra, Arctius or Zajara(-Moonglade) to arrange an interview or encounter, so that we can see if ours is the guild for you. If I am not online, Nlaea can help you with information and helping me to get in touch with you later. Typing the command "/who Hand of the Titans" will give you a list of who of the guild is online. You can also post here if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. This thread could likely use the bumping anyway.

Extra info:
We currently have a minimum level 20 requirement for various reasons, please keep this in mind. If you need help on your backstory or lore, we're always available for advice, and if you seek cooperation with our guild instead of membership, we're always open for that as well.

Current events:
We had amazing times during Legion, and have had time to explore adventures of our own creation while we waited for the Battle for Azeroth, but it is finally here. With it have come questions of where we stand in this changed and warring world.

Zandalar and Kul Tiras await as ancient kingdoms where trouble has been brewing for far too long. With new adventures, foes, challenges, power and allies to await us. The coming months we are likely to see much adventure there. Though we won't forget about the rest of Azeroth. Much darkness has grown while the world had its eyes to the skies to face the Burning Legion.

See you on Azeroth!
uhh i get first bump! yaaaay!
It has sure been a busy time lately. Between the server campaign to stop the tide of the Iron Horde in the Blasted Lands, and all the new content, we've neglected the recruitment thread a little.

We are still actively recruiting! We're heading very strong into Warlords of Draenor with lots of interesting new things to explore. Our journey into this new expansion is just getting started! We're also continuing to offer casual raiding of new content this expansion.

So yes, the Hand has set its sight on the world of Draenor, heeding the call of the Horde to aid in securing that world, from the growing threat of the Iron Horde, held back for now, but far from defeated. And the other dark threats quickly on the rise on that turbulent world. With bloodthirsty orcs, a primal world, and a rising ride of darkness and demons to face, it promises to be an exciting time indeed.

See you on Draenor!
If you don't want to miss out on all the good stuff, now's the time to join, since we're heading to Draenor this weekend!

Of course joining later on is still possible, but you know.. Frostwolves and all kinds of fun stuff that's trying to eat you alive, who would want to miss out on that? So get your axes or spellbooks out and make sure to pack your warmest, furriest armour! We're off to Draenor!

See you soon!
Going to Draenor has been great so far!
Thanks to our GM and officers we've had a very interesting ongoing campaign, trying to find a way to civilisation!

We took a portal, expecting to end up in a Horde settlement, but as it turns out, we ended up taking the portal of a distressed mage trying to flee from an Iron Horde camp! Oops.
We managed to fight our way out and commandeer a ship (aka we totally stole it, sorry Iron Horde), andended up in Frostfire Ridge by accident, where we had to set up camp.

After this a whole bunch of things happened, the highlights being a succesful Rylak hunt, campfires, saving a group of prisoners from a Thunderlord settlement, campfires, getting ambushed by even more Thunderlord orcs, campfires, finally finding signs of civilisation and eventually, last night we made it to Gorgrond. (God yes, warmth!)

It's been a good journey and we managed to hold our own, but there's always room for more! (both on Draenor and back on Azeroth) So feel free to poke any online member for RP, and interview or just a nice chat!

See you soon,
A fine bunch of eh... I dunno, something endearing yet insulting.
I sent an in-game letter to Anroka, your guild's leader. I then realized that she most likely receives a high volume of mail and it may not have been the best way of establishing contact. Is whispering the only way to introduce oneself to you guys, or is sending letters alright?
Letters should be fine, pretty sure he's one of those people who keeps an empty mailbox at all times.. unlike some.. *coughs*..

If you want you can whisper someone in game too. All the way up there it says to whisper Anroka, Gosa, Caernax or Nlaea if they're online, but any member could direct you to the person you'll want to talk to about joining, if they're on an alt or something :)

Let's RP soon!
At the time nobody seemed to be online, though I only returned to the game a month ago (originally played 2006-2008) and am still relearning a lot of basic in-game commands.

I'll try to whisper someone associated with the guild next time. Look forward to learning more about you guys.
I've figured out where it went wrong Khujand. :)

You have sent it to a character named Anroka on the Steamwheedle Cartel server, it seems (Which is an alt of mine I use on very rare occasions). We're three servers merged into one, but in order to contact me you'll have to add -Moonglade at the end of the character names in mail and such. So, Anroka-Moonglade.

An easier way may be to use the command "/who Hand of the Titans". This will give you a list of all members online, and you'll find people online almost at all times. I'm sure everyone will be happy to help you get in touch with the officers. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'll clarify the main post soon with this information :).
we survived the turn of the year and are allready enganged in serval RP plots from draenor to sinister murder and frindly tarven evneings :D
It's been one heck of a journey so far! There is just so much to see and do in roleplay these days. Draenor is proving an absolute paradise for RP. We've had so much already, and we've not even seen half of the continent yet. It's not all where we hang out of course, but it's certainly something I am glad to make use of.

Things are very active, and we're having fun, but there's always room for more people to join in, of course.

I've also been happy to encounter other guilds RPing out there on Draenor. Always a nice chance to cooperate and roleplay as a community.
A fun, interactive and social guild! I had tons of fun roleplaying with these guys, check them out!
We don't bite. Well, most of us don't anyways...

P.S. I'll miss you Drax. Who's going to make stuff explode right next to where I'm standing now? :(

Have a bump and I'll get up the courage to contact you soon (yeah yeah, i know you don't bite.. often), once Dys's backstory is a bit clearer in my head :)
I have to admit, this expansion has managed to bring us more RP opportunities than any before it. There's just so much to do that is relevant to our characters, and a good foundation for an adventure. The active community is also great to see.

That's all translated to the Hand of the Titans doing very well, of course. And I've also been happy to meet all the new faces joining us. Of course, no matter how active it gets, there's always room for a few more. At the very least, I can promise we won't be running out of stories to tell, any time soon. The calender continues to fill up quick with new adventures. :D

See you on Daenor!
Hand have been busy bees lately. You now have the chance to join us as we get into gear for a final push against few of our big objectives in Draenor.

We are a nice bunch and also look good so it's a win win situation if you desire to be a member of one of the more active RP guilds on the server.
"The Hand are good warriors. Their methods are different, but effective. Welcome allies in any battle!"
Big things are happening! Tanaan is soon opening up, and with it will come more danger than faced before! The Burning Legion threatens both Draenor and Azeroth if unstopped. The Hand of the Titans will of course eagerly face this challenge. No more beating down misguided orcs. True evil and corruption has shown its face on Dreanor!

We've just finished our campaign against the Blackrock Clan with the guild, which I was very proud of. New adventures are just ahead!

For now, the dangers that await us in Tanaan are unknown. But what is known is that it will be the greatest battles since the retaking of the Blasted Lands. As such, old allies and new are joining hands once more, as during the Tidebreaker Offensive server campaign. The Hand of the Titans is reaching out to its allies in cooperation, working together with many other guilds. For now, they are working together to construct a Shipyard. But once construction finishes, new adventures await!
Yeah, we're definitely the cool kids.
.. Well we do try.

Can't wait to rp in the Shipyard, and to join the Tanaan campaign on my characters.
Join usssss!
