[A] Stormwind Ninth Cavalry (RP-WPVP)

Post by Ariden on Sat Sep 01, 2012 4:35 pm

Stormwind Ninth Cavalry

IC:
Spoiler:
The sound of footsteps echoed around the valley, dust rose in a dense cloud turned up by the feet of a hundred Orcs,
the morning sun glinted off their axe heads, a dance of light the beauty of which is a gross parody of their purpose. Idaios looked along the line of trees that topped one side of the valley, looking along at the Riders under his command, each one stood concealed in the shade of the woods, there horses still reigns griped gently in hand. They were ready, he raised his arm, his sword pointing towards the Orc warband. As one the riders with him dug their heels in, the horses started down the side of the valley first at a genital trot then quickly moving into a gallop, riders on each side of Idaios fell back, the riders forming themselves into an arrowhead formation, he was the very point of that arrow, the penetrating force, he filled his lungs and let out a cry that echoed through the valley over the sounds of fifty horses hooves,
‘For Stormwind!’
The Orcs bellow had by now noticed the riders, and were attempting to form a line of defence, they would never make it in time, Idaios knew this, he had attacked forces like this before, he knew that the timing of the attack was vital, and he was an expert in that timing. The riders crashed through the half formed line in into the midst of the Warband, into the blood, into the sweat, into the honour and the glory of battle. They had already won, they had won before they had left the tree lines, they had won the moment the Orcs had dared to march on the Alliances land. The Orcs were just too stupid to know it.

Idaios sat in his tent, cleaning the blood of his weapons and armour, thinking back over the battle, it had been a good one, they had lost very few and taken many. But after months of battles like this those very few started to add up, they were almost at the point where they would stop being a viable fighting force. At this point the tent flap was pulled aside and a young cavalry officer entered with a crisp salute,

‘At ease, you fought well today’

‘Thank you Sir, The men are wondering what are our orders?’

Idaios paused for a moment, thinking,
‘We break camp at dawn, march for Stormwind, we will recruit new blood into the ranks, grant the men some leave.’ His voice dropped, ‘I fear we have only seen the start of it so far, And I want to be ready for the rest’
‘What was that Sir?’
Idaios looked up from his sword and smiled,
‘Nothing just the musings of a man who has seen too much war, now go and enjoy the festivities, tomorrow we return home.’

The sound of drunken merriment, and fires crackling echoed around the valley, where in the morning there had been only the sounds of war.

OOC:
The Stormwind Ninth Cavalry are a military based RP guild who focus on the aspects of RPing a Cavalry regiment. As well as aiming for regular high quality RP events we would also aim to organise participate in and promote world PVP/ world RPPVP
Although I have seen many military based guilds before and of course there is still the <Stormwind Regiment> I haven’t seen one that focuses on being a Cavalry unit which allows for a new strand of RP.
eligible races/classes,
all alliance races are eligible to join in some form, although it is a human based RP guild if a character from another race has a good enough IC reason to want to join then they are more then welcome!
classes again I have attempted to make sure that there is the possibility of any class joining the ranks,

Guild Organisation:
Marshal: The officer in charge of the Regiment, both IC and OOC.

Officers: This is an OOC rank awarded to those who have shown themselves to be key members of the guild, be it though helping to organise events, showing outstanding RP abilities, or always having a friendly and helpful attitude towards other guildies and non guildies alike. They would continue to hold their IC rank.

Sergeants: Officers in charge of a group of knights/scouts they take their orders from the Marshal, but also need to be able to make command decisions of their own, after all in the heat of a battle communication can get a little difficult. These are honed veterans who will not falter at the sight of overwhelming odds.
Master of Novices: A many year veteran whose wisdom and skill in battle have earned them the rank of Master of Novices, tasked with the wellbeing and education of the Novices in the Regiment, ensuring each one of them is assigned to a Knight, and that those knights in turn are guiding them in the correct manor.

Knights: The main body of the force, these are the men and women whose asses are in the saddles riding to honour and glory! They are all tasked with passing on the knowledge and skills that set them apart from your average soldier to their individual Novices.

Scouts: An army without scouts is like putting your hand blindly into a basket with a snake, The scouts are a group of skilled trail finders trackers and hunters, tasked with finding the enemy and reporting back as quickly as they can, as well as finding a path through unknown territory, and hunting the food that feeds the army.

Novices: New Recruits into the Regiment, they take their orders from the Master of Novices until they are told otherwise. They are assigned at the soonest possible occasion to a Knight for personal mentoring a guidance, as well as being taught in the ways of combat and horse riding.

Hangers on: the general hangers on that seem to gather around a moving regiment, from cooks to weapon smiths, drinks vendors to acquirers of exotic goods, and everything in-between,

One thing that I feel is paramount to any good guild is communication between the members, and the ability for all those members to have a say in decisions the guild makes, from the bottom up. Thats why as a guild leader I pledge myself to listening to the opinions of every single member of the guild and if I disagree or not if you have an idea on a direction the guild should take IC or OOC I will listen and bring it to the ears of the guild as a whole allowing them to make the choice as much as myself.

Thank you for reading and I hope that we have something you like here, if you are interested in getting involved then please either whisper me or send me an ingame letter to Idaios!

Upcomeing Events:

22/9/2012
Fundraiser for the continued war effort, held on the Skyfire.
event page : http://www.defiasrp.com/t5639-stormwind-military-fundraiser-2100-22-9-12

event concepts:
frequent training exercises
parades
a yearly regimental ball,
a founding day celebration
refugee work, something around the theramore and much like the modern day army's stormwind would have a vested interest in getting people out as fast as they can, and even if we missed out in the chance to RP that scenario then there are always the refugees in Westbrook who need to be supplied with aid, so yes basically another thing we would do is humanitarian work.
weekly sermons held by our own chaplain.
and then the campains themselves to the far reaches of azaroth and beyond,
on an OOC level raids battlegrounds and arena teams are all dreams of mine, and if we are doing a guild run of a raid why not do it IC of course we wouldn't then go around bragging that we just killed who ever it may be, but still doing raids in an IC manor with lots of shouting and 'For the Light'ing would be fun!

I think the main problem right now is that there aren't enough roleplayers around to actually start a guild and have it running, unless the few members who join are very motivated to keep it going.
Over the last couple of weeks more and more guilds have fallen in oblivion because of many reasons.

It sucks, it really does. But that's the situation right now.
I really hope the RP gets back in a few months when people have had their fun in the new expansion.

I like the idea of this guild, seems like a cool concept. Unfortunately I don't have either time, motivation or even a character to spare to join the guild Sad

yeah it seems that way, I have seen a massive drop in the number of roleplayers since I started to play again, its a real shame as the RP community on defias is the main reason I overlooked all the changes that blizz are makeing that I don't like and rejoined...... although on the other hand I did see a much larger turnout then I would have expected at the event in moonbrook on sunday night,

Guild growth is just very very slow at the moment, if you can get two or three active people and then just start from there I think it should work, sooner or later it will shoot up, always does, I've been through at least two of these phases myself, and with MoP and Guild Wars 2 out at the moment/coming, it hardly suprises me right now. Sadly Sad

However, I do love the idea. Currently trying to make a guild of my own work, but I might throw in Lazzarian at some point, feels like the sort of guild that would suit him fine.

indeed, I am working on something alongside someone else but its not takeing the concept in the direction I would have desired, I am still very keen on running this idea through and would love for you to come and join me if it sounds like something you would be intrested in, no pressure of course =P

Is this taking some inspiration from the old "Brotherhood of the Horse" or the like? If I don't remember totally wrong, there was such a brotherhood in the past of Humanity that had their own place (Karazhan anyone?).

erm sadly it wasn't inspired by that I was totally unaware of that bit of lore tbh, it was more inspired by the group of stormwind royal guard who roll around elwynn I once saw them and though, where is the cavalry RP.....

Met one of you briefly yesterday, and while I hardly got time to check it out, due to time issues irl, you seem like a bunch deserving the right to live.

One question, however, what would you be doing when you're not off riding to battle?

I think it would have been me you met, well there is a whole number of things, from training to parades, I am thinking about having it as a cavalry regiment with some traditions so a yearly regimental ball, a founding day celebration and the like, as well as other things really that I still need to smooth the kinks out of.

another idea about what we would do aside from riding into battle, and the ones I mentioned above of course, but trying to work out an idea for refugee work, something around the theramore and much like the modern day army's stormwind would have a vested interest in getting people out as fast as they can, and even if we missed out in the chance to RP that scenario then there are always the refugees in Westbrook who need to be supplied with aid, so yes basically another thing we would do is humanitarian work.

also on an OOC level raids battlegrounds and arena teams are all dreams of mine, and if we are doing a guild run of a raid why not do it IC of course we wouldn't then go around bragging that we just killed who ever it may be, but still doing raids in an IC manor with lots of shouting and 'For the Light'ing would be fun!

another idea that has jumped into my mind, guild sermons held by our own chaplain once we get one of those of course! small ones once a week and then before we leave for a campaign a mass one.

It is a lovely idea, should you not be able to gather up enough people for a guild, perhaps you could sort something out with the regiment? We only have an infantry divison really atm so it'd be nice to be able to offer more!

yeah I mean I do foresee a lot of close RP with the regiment if I do manage it, and its a tempting idea if I don't! Smile

As it is so far I have got the guild charter done and handed in, now what I really need to find are those few solid people to help form the core that we can build from, so if anyone is reading this and they have a character who they think will fit into the role of being a knight for stormwind, and you have the time/energy to help get a really exciting project off the ground allowing you to put as much input into it as you can come up with! please get in touch! just whisper me on idaios
