The Scions are a role-playing guild with the
above mentioned theme. Any are welcome as long as they are willing to, for the most part, forget their differences with the Alliance and work towards the greater good. This is not to say that there won't be tussles. Defending our lands, and keeping in battle trim is a necessity. The rules themselves are mostly OOC
in nature, and should be common sense stuff most RPers know. In short,
we want everyone to have fun, play nice and get along.
Guild Chat is IC – If you need
and IC rationale, then assume you have a mystical devices that is built into your Hearthstone. These devices are if ancient High Elven magic and cannot be reproduced through normal enchantments. If someone leaves
or is removed from the guild, then Hearthstone will still function but
the communication feature is disabled.
Officer Chat is OOC – Anything
you want to discuss or ask that is of an OOC nature goes here. If
for some reason you MUST say something OOC in the Guild Channel,
please denote such with brackets (()),, see below.
Obey RP Server Rules – That
means keep OOC chatter out of say/yell, follow RP naming conventions
for alts, avoid netspeak. Again if you find that you must speak
OOC, use (()), , or something similar to denote OOC speech.
Need before Greed – This is how
we operate in all instances, groups, ect. If you need an item, roll
on it, unless its BoP then those that need who are of an appropriate
class may roll, followed by others of a different class who it would
be an upgrade for, followed by shards. All shards gathered in guild
sponsored instances go to the Guild Bank for future member enchantments.
Don't be Greedy – The guild bank
is open for all to use. Anything in there is community property.
But if you take more than you need, or if you never put things in
the bank, then expect to have a talk with an officer soon. If you are ever caught
selling/stealing items from the Guild Bank, you will be ejected from the
Guild. The sole exclusion is if an officer is selling junk to make
space and turns the money back into the bank – That must be
cleared with the guild master ahead of time.
Minimize Angst - While there is
nothing wrong with serious and intense RP some of the time, please
try to avoid making characters that have the Tragedy Du Jour. Once
in a while is okay, but if a character is constantly filled with
deep emotional trauma and it never gets better, that's too much.
All Are Welcome - Make all members of the Silver Scions feel welcome and wanted. Snobbery, either IC or OOC will be frowned upon.
Avoid Direct Lore References - Please don't join us with Kael'Thas daughter or Thrall's illegitimate son. While its fine to indirectly have lore in your background, try not to overdo it, having Sylvanas dance with you at the Forsaken ball is one thing, having her fall madly in love with your character is something else entirely.
