The Hunter's Guild

Post by Vaell on Tue May 14, 2013 11:31 am

THIS IS NOT AN IC GUILD. YOU CAN JOIN THIS ON ANY ALLIANCE CHARACTER NO MATTER WHAT GUILD YOU ARE AFFILIATED WITH (though I'd advise Black Hand/HoN don't sign up...)


The Hunter's Guild




What is this guild?
Having recently found a strong interest in DMing, I have come up with the concept of a group of people who hunt monsters in the WoWverse. Why? Because WoW is full of them! Beasts are constantly being hunted down in quests so we're the ones who go out and do it for
  • Sport/Entertainment
  • Protecting our races
  • Payment from troubled towns.


Anything from a pack of feral worgen to a giant sea Kraken, this group will be trained to fight those foes and cause them to flee / kill them. If you like the sound of having your character trained to fight off monsters, then you'll love what I've got planned for the guild.

Isn't this a little overpowered?
I've always been aware of making my characters the standard of their race/class. Vaell is a decent mage but suffers from lack of combat experience, pompous actions and a lack of quick thinking. Kyven could fight but no better than your average man. Every single one of my characters holds these fatal flaws and it's mostly to avoid player vs player contact where my character might have an OP advantage and cause drama from it.

I've decided to say no to that this time. I will be playing a veteran who has hunted them for decades and now wants to pass on his knowledge. Is this character stronger than your average man? Of course! But why not? Warcraft is all about heroes and I implore you to try it for this guild. We'll be building a special force to combat the beasts of the world and will be having a lot of fun in the process. I don't plan on PvP/fighting other characters.

What will the events be like?
DMed events most of the time but I'll not expect people to be eaten if they roll a 1. I won't be enforcing any strong rules on that; do what you will with your own rolls but we'll stick to a basic system so we know when a monster dies or not. Some events will have moments where I'll avoid DM and you can just emote through your enemy and others will go off the AV/DV/HV system.

Who is eligible to join?
If you have any combat efficient character (even if they're only a doctor who can withstand the pressure of a dragon looming overhead) then you fit the bill. I don't want this to be exclusive, I just want it to be epic.

Any further questions/interest please post below.

Nice! I think it's a lovely idea. May i sugest you keep a record of things you go kill and maybe even do a book, describing monsters you hunted down, their weaknesses and so on? Just a sugestion... Might be a bit work but that'd be just awsome!

I don't know i could join sometimes on Sieg but can't vouch since things can come out of nowhere. Good luck with it.

I really like this idea man. I'd happily throw a character along with these events. (Not a Black Hand one) xD

Yeah, that's the plan, Sieg! I am going to write up bios for each of the monsters and it'll be killing one a month (if it goes well!) with build up events here and there. I want to really characterise the creatures we hunt down, give them a nice mythical background e.g. the Kraken or Grendel from Beowulf

This looks really interesting! I'll see if I can be able to do this with my very limited time on WoW! Smile

Read the post and thought it was a link to a Monster Hunter game.

Read the post again, was not disappointed. Looking forward to it!

This sounds like a great idea....though damn pointy hay man won't go about having his ass kicked by a pack of beasties! However~ That being said....I've been thinking of making a Wildhammer Dwarf....And what better thing to do that hunt down, and fight? Drink on the job? Lose his shit if his Stormhammer gets lost!

But m'yes! I would love to get in on this sweet ass action. DMing is something that I love taking part in. And while I don't think Silverweave is the toon for such, you can't go wrong with a Dwarf from the Aerie!

The Adventurers Guild supports this idea one-hundred percent, and welcomes any hunters that wish to be guilded in something appropriate rather then remain in limbo into it's ranks. Very Happy

This ^

If you don't have a guild and want to join in with the hunting, I suggest the Adventurers Guild. It goes hand in hand.

Sending out invites for the first event. It isn't Monster Hunting per se, more of a "recruit gathering." There may or may not be some monster...

Thanks to those who came, the rest of you - shame on you! Be sure to message my character Kyven (But ICly Lukas Creed) in game and ask for a private meet before the next event!
