Guild Information

With the ancient Sea Witch slain, life looked bright for the future of the Darkspear Tribe, but nothing good is easy. Erratic in his rule, Warchief Garrosh shortly tore his Horde to tatters, sacrificing its 'lesser wretches', Tauren, Goblins and Trolls, in favour of his own, more perfect kin.

But some things do not simply crumble underfoot. Called by Vol'jin, chieftain of the Tribe, the Darkspear answered, spears struck to sky. War came, fought by many, but when the gates of Dranosh fell they rose beneath new banners.

Now a Troll sits upon a Warchief's throne; now blood is paid to Vol'jin.

The future is uncertain for the Horde and all its tribes. The Alliance keeps its careful watch, ever expanding on unsettled borders, whilst, from the stars, old darkness stirs- if Vol'jin's kin will keep their home they pay in spit and sinew.

But nothing good is easy.


The Darkspear Tribe is a troll-based roleplaying guild and community founded in 2005. We're a tight-knit, friendly gathering of tusked aficionados with a diverse cast of personalities-- both IC and OOC.

In general, the only in-character requirement is that your troll was born a member of the Darkspear Tribe. We house a wide variety of roleplayers, and a wide variety of trollish characters- from useless fishermen and miscellaneous villagers, to unscrupulous witchdoctors and hulking warriors. Our roleplay is primarily more casual, laid back and village-based, though we do occasionally spark up a spot of RP-PvP whenever the mood takes us.

  • We're happy to accept alts, though we'd love if you popped in a few times a month as opposed to leaving that character to gather dust in our roster. We do kick after a lengthy period of unexplained absence.

  • New roleplayers, too, are welcome; we're more than happy to teach you the ropes, even if it's an aspect of WoW you've never tried before!



  • From our AA page:

    Since our guild is an OOC community, there's no character progression or hierarchy of ranks. Those we have are purely to inform others of your troll's status in society, whether Scum or Villager. Everyone is equal with no order of command; the OOC GM of the guild, like everyone else, is just another member of the Tribe.


    Recruitment Information

    What are we looking for?

    We're looking for Darkspears from all walks of life, whether headhunter or civillian, and roleplayers of all experience levels. Rookies are just as welcome as the old; we house a good number of both within our ranks. Our guild portrays the inhabitants of Sen'jin Village and the Echo Isles, who live there, who work there, who fight for their tribe and their home.

    The recruitment process has two steps; a short, OOC discussion about your character's past and an informal, in-game roleplaying session. If successful, you'll be invited for a month-long trial period. You'll get to know us, and we'll get to know you and your character.

    However, we generally do not accept non-Darkspear trolls and ((Not a DK IC)) characters. There's nothing inherently wrong with these; we simply want to encourage Darkspear and, similarly, troll Death Knight roleplay. If you're still interested in applying on such a character, please speak to Skreel in-game.

    We also tend not to accept adult Darkspears born outside the Darkspear Islands for continuity reasons.

    Roleplay and Village Hours:


    We're a fairly small, casual and laid-back guild. Events typically aren't fed to members by the officers on a daily basis; all people, no matter the OOC rank, are more than welcome to try their hand at creating plots and events for others to join! As a guild, we frown upon 'spoon-feeding'; the officers are not responsible for filling the calendar with events- members are expected to be able to create their own roleplay. Suggestions and ideas are welcome to be flung at us; we're generally happy to try anything. The development of the characters, and the players, within our community is our primary focus.

    The vast majority of our roleplay is unplanned and adventures are often the result of on-the-fly decisions. However, we do list server-wide events on our calendar to both integrate with Argent Dawn's community and, of course, support our fellow allies and roleplayers.

    Sen'jin Village Hours is hosted every month. People of any guild, any race are more than welcome to attend; it's open for roleplayers from all walks in life. Although we don't wish to exclude anyone, keep in mind it's set within a Darkspear town; non-Horde alligned trolls (Drakkari, Gurubashi, Amani, Bloodscalp etc.) may be ignored or met with spears, vitriol and hatred.

    Campaigns

    We sometimes attend campaigns as the IC group Darkspear Coalition. Darkspear trolls outside the guild are welcome join, providing our characters are familiar with yours.

    A leader is generally voted for during an IC discussion. They will attend councils, give orders, run events and generally keep everyone updated on current events. This is likely to be an officer or long-term member's character due to the sheer amount of activity and dedication required during campaigns.

    Contact us!

    To contact us for any reason, the officers you should consider contacting are: Skreel, Ikhanacoatl, Snake, Akalazoo or Yecurzo. Similarly, feel free to toss any calendar invites to Skreel (and only Skreel, please!); we love attending the community's events.

    Many, many thanks for reading.

    10/10 for that transmog. It's amazing.

    No, we're not that friendly, honest! Trolls are vicious, savage creatures and certainly haven't been taught about the dictionary definition of 'nice'.

    Otherwise, thank'ee millions!

    He can be- secretly!

    Consider what would happen if food was removed from the equation; who would he eat?

    A small note appears tacked beneath the goblin's letter, melded in place by some form of unconventional glue- arguably originating from the strand crawlers lurking across Durotar's vast shores. The writing is near-illegible:

    IF YUUO SEL FEESH WEE BIY. WEE BIY FIYNS.

    PS: NOME GOOD TOO

    I was daft and completely forgot to take screenshots. Thanks a million to those who attended!

    Did nab one of Yecurzo attempting to offer the townsfolk of Sen'jin the most questionable of stories a few days back, however: http://i.imgur.com/atsgF.jpg

    Afhfjs, thank you! Supporting the fishing economy might be debatable, but we appreciate the kind words. \o

    Trying to organize a small adventure for next week's Village Hours, apologies for being absent yesterday!
