[A] Greyford Company (Closed)

Post by Raenmar on Sat Oct 20, 2012 9:14 pm

gilneas.guildlaunch.com

The Greyford Company is a Gilnean military force operating independently from the kingdom but alongside the Alliance. Formerly known as the 'Gilneas Liberation Front', TGC was established two and a half years ago by a Gilnean known only as Haegard. After Haegard went missing, leadership changed hands, and after many structural changes over it's time, the Liberation Front weathered the hardship of war and was eventually renamed in honour of a noblewoman who funded and supported the organisation.

"...I'm sure revenge is something we'd all like. But that's not what Countess Greyford would've wanted. She'd have wanted us to fight for our allies, to protect those who need us, and to stop the Horde ever destroying the home of another nation. And so, if there are no objections, I'll be renaming the Gilneas Liberation Front in her name."

The Greyfords are a small but skilled group, focused on winning wars through guerilla tactics, determination and technique, but are equipped and trained to hold the line in larger battles. Whilst primarily Gilnean, other Alliance races are occasionally employed as specialists; a necessity if we want to gather the best.

Currently based in Stromgarde with their Arathorian allies, the company primarily run patrols and scouting missions, also aiding in the defence and rebuilding of the city. There's much training and recruitment going on right now as the company - and our Northern allies - prepare to push further North.

Below you can find information on the roles, ranks and uniforms of the Greyford Company, and you can scroll down to the second post for information on events and some of our past and present RP.

Roles
The bulk of the Greyford Company is made up of footmen, riflemen and battlemagi. However, we also have specialists to support the main force and to carry out special operations. These specialists - medics, engineers and scouts - can do a range of work.

Additionally, TGC employs auxiliary staff to support operations when deployed. Cooks and crafters of all types are required in the North.

You can read about the roles in more detail here.

Ranks
Commander
Highest authority, responsible for planning and coordinating the Greyfords, as well as diplomatic matters.
Major
The commander's right-hand, assisting in diplomacy and representing the Company, as well as helping plan and execute operations. The major also often relays orders to the lower ranks.
Sergeant
Responsible for a range of tasks from recruitment to training to leading patrols. Sergeants also often lead and coordinate squads in battle.
Corporal
Assist in maintaining discipline through example, and report issues to the sergeant. May sometimes act as an assistant to a sergeant in battle.
Private
The bulk of the force, carrying out orders.

Uniform
As part of the heavy military RP theme, we have uniforms for each role, and with cloth/leather/mail/plate sets where necessary. Most set pieces for each set come from low level quests, and a set should take no longer than 2 hours to farm and require no higher than level 60 (with some exceptions). It may seem a lot of trouble, but it really adds to the theme. And people lining up in their uniforms looks quite awesome:



If you've already done the quests for the uniform pieces, that's fine: we'll either find different pieces with the same model, or find a different set piece for you. All BoE set pieces will be supplied from the guild bank.

Some of our uniforms are still a work in progress, but to see our currently completed ones, check the post below.

Things to note if you're interested in joining...

  • We're heavy military RP. We generally take things realistically, and our RP tends to have quite a dark tone, being on the frontlines of a war.
  • Characters do get disciplined if they desert or if they refuse to follow orders purely because they're a badass. If a character is too rebellious, they'll be punished and eventually discharged.
  • When we're in a warzone, we're stuck there. We treat travelling with some realism, so travelling from Strom to Stormwind will take a while. If you go to Stormwind to see your friends, people will notice, and you'll probably be branded a deserter.
  • We roleplay outside of blueshield zones, so it's inevitable that we'll get ganked. We won't retreat, though. You can take a look here at how we handle ganking. Mostly, we just take it IC and play it out.
  • We're an RPPvP guild, but we don't require you to level or gear up. Just take note that, if you're low level or undergeared, you'll go down quickly when gankers attack, and you'll usually need to sit out during RPPvP events.
  • Disruptive ganking or corpse-camping isn't tolerated. We support WPvP, but members who deliberately and consistently disrupt things for other people will be dealt with.

Race/class restrictions

  • Gilneans (worgen or human) accepted into any role.
  • Non-Gilneans occasionally accepted into auxiliary or specialist roles.
  • Death knights are not accepted.
  • Fel magic and demonology will be punished harshly, but OOC warlocks are accepted.

Interested in joining?
Feel free to contact myself or Dumon in-game. We can give you more information, or if you're ready to join we can give you an interview. You could also take a look at our website: http://www.gilneas.guildlaunch.com

Take a look at some of our completed uniform sets:

Events
We have at least two RP events per week: a meeting and a training drill. We have a lot more events most weeks, which vary a lot depending on the Company's situation. More training, patrols, work around the city and fighting (obviously) all happen.

Meetings
Meetings are every Saturday. They're usually a discussion regarding our current situation, giving the low-ranked peasants a chance to talk freely with their officers. If there's nothing to discuss, the meeting will be replaced with a patrol or a training drill.

Training
Our training RP tends to be realistic and focused on the types of training that would be done in the real military, but fitting with the pseudo-medieval theme in terms of discipline and punishments, as well as types of training.

Patrols
Patrols are sometimes planned, sometimes done spontaneously whenever we have enough people online. Often (but not always) they'll involve some form of combat, usually some small-scale RPPvP or emote fights. That's why we're always vigilant.

Defence
It's not uncommon for Horde to attack us. We'll generally take it as IC; line up at the gates and stand ready to defend against anything coming through them. We tend to win.

Special Operations
Spying, sabotage, assassination or gathering the materials to engineer a new device; the Greyford Company is trained to do far more than simply fight.




The Northern Council & Northern RP
The Greyford Company is one of the active Northern roleplay guilds, and one of the most active participants in the Northern Council. The Council is currently organised by Gilnean Commander Alric and is a meeting for orders and individuals to meet and discuss matters of importance in the North. Many a battle has been planned at the Council over the years.

Northern RP currently is mostly military, and the primary hub right now is Stromgarde. Adventurers are always welcome to stay, and a tavern project is underway to establish a player-run tavern somewhere in the Northern side of the continent.

Roleplay up here tends to take a more serious tone than Stormwind RP, but we manage to have a laugh over an ale even while we're knee-deep in blood and dirty Forsaken corpses.

If you're interested in Northern RP, go ahead and join the NorthernRP channel.
/join NorthernRP


The Hillsbrad Accord
The Hillsbrad Accord is a treaty signed between the Greyford Company, the Lordaeron Alliance, and the Kingdom of Stromgarde. The three groups, and as much of their nation as they represent, have sworn to stand as brothers in the North and defend each other in matters of war and politics until all three kingdoms have been restored.

We the Undersigned, representing the Human Kingdoms of the North, do swear by our marks upon this page to preserve and support one another as brothers, until such time as the last foe is cast from the last patch of human soil.

We shall not rest, nor shirk our brother Kingdoms, until the great nations of Lordaeron, Gilneas and Arathor are returned wholly to the hands of their people.

The enemy of one shall be the enemy of all. We shall shield each other's weak while crushing each others' foes.

By the Light and the Ancestors, we make this pledge.

First I have to write the last extra lengthy chapter! And I have to make sure it's well written and contains everything, because frankly I screwed up with the previous chapters. But yeah, after than I'll be glad to return. Very Happy (I miss you guys too.)

I belive they are building a house/base/treehouse/doghouse and fighting the undead in Stromgarde. But best Raen update.

A certain Arcanist may make a visit on the northern front during weekend.
There seems enough interesting things going on to bunch into.

Also love the update. It was needed Smile

Yes, this was a Bump.

From today we're accepting locks if they're played as magi or shadow users. Fel magic and demonology is banned and will be punished.
