Active RP Guilds Audit

Post by Guest on Thu Jan 07, 2016 7:05 am

I totally understand why we say that the server is active for rp, if we say it's dead then new people won't roll here.

However...it is kinda dead as far as I can see, apart from pockets of guilds doing there own thing - or so it seems from my wandering on my main and army of alts I'm playing to pass the tedium of sod all to do.

So, open and honest please, what rp-based guilds are actually active on Defias (as in mains and not just a side project on an alt) and in what respect.  For example, a few of you hanging out at a hub/location and rping among yourselves or perhaps a few of you on an epic storyline across the world.

Purpose of this is pretty much to audit what we have and from that, what we can come up with to improve the interactions between guilds, make the server more alive for rp and thus attract new rpers - or at least retain what we have.

Top of my head...um...can you answer (please be brutally honest):

Guild:
Activity:
Location:
RP:
Open/Closed:

Would be nice if the existing active rp-based (rp or rp/pvp) could post here, we're so scattered and insular that it's hard to get a feel for what's actually alive now.  Most of the people I knew have packed in or moved to AD so I'm really out of touch.

May post this on Blizz forum or are you guys confident that all active rp guilds, one way or another, visit here?

This is how it stands today, 17th Jan 2016:

ALLIANCE

Guild: Civilians of Azeroth
Activity: Low, 2-5 peak, we do not worry about this as we are an open guild for basically every civilian.
Location: Everywhere where civilians are allowed! However, the current players prefer to be around Lakeshire Inn.
RP: Simple casual events such as fishing trips, bar nights, social gatherings, exploration, small adventures, holiday events et cetera. Everyone is invited to make events of their own as well!
Open/Closed: We are definitely open to interactions with new Roleplayers and are happy to help them, because as civilians we intend to be everywhere in the world, either being a farmer, a merchant, a simple traveler and other things alike!

Guild: Holy Lightbringers
Activity: Small, 2-5 at peak times but then we have always been a small guild, so when people have work/studies etc it's more notable than in larger guilds. We aim to ramp up our activities now after the holidays as well.
Location: Headquarters in Stormwind (Argent Dawn building) but we often travel around Azeroth and beyond.
RP: Focus on diplomacy and healing, as well as other tasks/duties related to the Light/Church.
Open/closed: We are always looking for some new members who would fit into the guild concept, people new to RP are also welcome.

Guild: House of Yore
Activity: Medium (10 - 20 at peak times)
Location: Stormwind, Mage Quarter, The Slaughtered Lamb (Events take us around the world)
RP: Militant, Magical, Espionage, Political, Trade, Faith, Family (We do more or less everything)
Open/Closed: We are keen to include and promote new RP'ers in the community as well as looking to include existing ones in our on-going events and supporting them with their own, within the House we have a strong PvP ethic on our Yorians and treat all PvP as IC where possible

Guild: Theatre of Blood
Activity: Low/Medium. 5-10 at peak times. Averaging at 10 for events and meetings.
Location: Headquarters based in Darnassus. Primary guild events take place across Kalimdor, and contact is maintained with the Eastern Kingdoms through random RP or individual assignments.
RP: Alliance affiliated specialists, dealing with espionage, assassination, spying, and furthering Alliance aims behind enemy lines. Our role play is structured around event chains of scouting and undertaking strikes against Horde bases of operations, and individual smaller scale assignments leading to interactions with other guilds and role players on the server.
Open/closed: The Theatre is openly recruiting, and we aim to keep the doors open to all manner of characters by offering different positions within the organisation. We take on everyone from a skilled assassin, to an apprentice mage eager to offer their services to the Alliance.

Guild: The Azure Flame
Activity: Small (3-5 at peak times)
Location: Northrend, Stormwind, Ironforge, "Various" (The guild goes where it individuals do)
RP: Based on Individual paths. Focus on character interaction. RP often Magic-influenced. Not part of the Alliance.
Open/Closed: Operates as "guildless", require no guild invite to join. Members often belong to another RP guild while also being member of AF. Open for interaction, however interaction happen with "Individuals" rather than "Guild".

Guild: The Disciples of Light
Activity: Fluctuates erratically can be 2 and can shoot up to 18 people depending on how it's going
Location: Main locations are Cathedral Square or Northshire Abbey, otherwise we can be found anywhere.
RP: Holy order, patriots of the Grand Alliance, dedicated to the reclamation of Alliance lands in the north and fighting the banshee queen and her Royal Apothecary, as well as this it dedicates itself to fighting cults and legion wherever they are, follows the examples of the old silver hand.
Open/Closed: Open to all (not open to Death knights, filthy dirty shadow priests under the employ of old gods or warlocks of the legion or otherwise.) ( Druids as nice as they are, are also not accepted, we don't do that tree hugging nonsense.)

Guild: The Ninth Company
Activity: 1-10
Location: Stormwind barracks, Westbrook Garisson, and everything what's one the way.
RP: Military unit also supporting the realm as guards, leading investigations and gaining intel on enemy moves.
Open/Closed: Very open. We invite all classes and races and have no problems with roleplaying with various. We do not follow stereotypes, therefore are friendly towards law abiding warlocks, mercenaries, and death knights.


HORDE

Guild: Phoenixstrider House
Activity: Daily 3-6 people. Weekly 10 people.
Location: Quel'thalas / all over the place
RP: Noble House and side guilds, (Assassination group, rock band)
Open/Closed: Closed, we don't let non guildies attend our events, and we very rarely invite new members. However, our casual RP in and around Silvermoon is open to all.

Guild: Red Reach Raiders
Activity: 1-3 (guild still very new, but recruiting)
Location: Horde RP Hotspots, Orgrimmar, Silvermoon, around the world.
RP: Casual Tavern RP, planning our next Raid, training to fight, honing our skills, sparring and Raiding Alliance/Neutral settlements and Dungeons.
Open/Closed: Open for RP-PvP, DM events, interaction with other Rpers, others joining our events. Looking forward into creating RP-PvP, once getting established.

Guild: Second Gurubashi Empire
Activity: 1-3 people online and 2 weekly meets.
Location: STV.
RP: Troll only RP-PvP guild not aligned with either major faction
Open/Closed: Open

Guild: Venomspire Pariahs
Activity: Low expecting other members to return soon
Location: Undercity
RP: Forsaken & Bloodelfs, Venomspine is a faction that operates within Undercity and Silvermoon by gathering skilled individuals of all backgrounds to perform the more questionable tasks of the two nations
Open/Closed: Open and we are happily accepting new members! new to RP or Experienced? it matters not all are equally welcome!

Guild: Vile Thorn
Activity: Low, starting to recruit again though but lack officer support atm
Location: Usually EK; historically a UC based guild.
RP: Mostly around hunting because basically we lack people with more experience of wider rp
Open/Closed: Open to interactions and people new to rp/pvp but historically have avoided DM led events and the more social gatherings - we kind of like action with our rp .... but that's more my preference and I am perfectly happy for people to join in whatever they want to.

Guild:
(A) House of Yore
Activity:
Medium (10 - 20 at peak times)
Location:
Stormwind, Mage Quater, The Slaughtered Lamb (Events take us around the world)
RP:
Militant, Magical, Espionage, Political, Trade, Faith, Family (We do more or less everything)
Open/Closed:

I edited the format a little to try and make it clearer, I assume you are looking to standardize the look? Also a good initiative, the guild list is a little out of date, a new up to date version can't hurt

Thanks Zackarus, is this as the guild is right now? So on a peak time (19:00-23:00 any day?) you have 20 active players? I'm not just after a guild list, it's more of an audit of activity as a list just shows the guild exists and maybe has people login to do their Garrison daily.

Aye, The House has been quite fortunate in that regard, we have a high activity rate and participation rate from our on-line Yorians

10-20 at peak hours (19:00 - 23:00)

However we also include a clause on people who join through their IC interview then never attend events, we mark them as an OOC lurker if it's happening frequently, we have a chat, try to include them, and this normally does the job.

Oh I have been looking around for Horde RP, let it be out of curiousity or else, I failed to find more but a handful of Blood Elves. (could count them on one hand)

I can only confirm, the house is as active as it was said, the events are quite frequent likewise as is the IC/OOC interaction on daily basis.

My lowly, shallow opinion formed from my observations past month would clearly make the house appear as one of the most active, if not the most active... but then, I have not had an honor to be part of guilds such as Lightbringers, Disciples or Wardens. I do consider them among the most active likewise, since I often came in contact with them even though I am Yorian myself.

Guild: The Azure Flame (Alliance)
Activity: Small (3-5 at peak times)
Location: Northrend, Stormwind, Ironforge, "Various" (The guild goes where it individuals do)
RP: Based on Individual paths. Focus on character interaction. RP often Magic-influenced. Not part of the Alliance.
Open/Closed: Operates as "guildless", require no guild invite to join. Members often belong to another RP guild while also being member of AF. Open for interaction, however interaction happen with "Individuals" rather than "Guild".

---

We're a bit different. We don't require joining the guild. We host no Events, and all the Guilds RP is based around character interaction. Those who openly show affluence with Azure Flame are usually those who support Skarain Feirand, the leader of the Flame. Otherwise, the Individuals walk their own paths, the Flame being only a home/sanctuary one can withdraw into when needed.

@Arli: I suggest that once we get the list complete of all active RP groups, we link it into the RP guild lists on Realm Forum. I'd also gladly "purge" any RP guild from the lists who have not responded to this inquiry, to give an accurate picture of active Guilds on server.

Can also post one to the Roleplaying forums, not just Realm.

Totally agree.  Once we have the data I will look at formatting it in the first post - probably better the Horde & Alliance rp list owners on the main forum linking back to here in the first post.  Maybe it will help this forum grow too.  From that. let's see if we can get something going across the server wrt interactions, little worried about lack of Horde though.

Many thanks to all that have replied Smile

Update be gooood.

Been on a sort of "rp break" myself for a while so not having the brightest overall understanding of rp activity either. But clearly Alliance is more active once again. For what comes to Teaguard as a guild, well we run RBGs but thats about it. Just a place for couple of us mons. Not been very keen on recruiting or anything since can't promise any activity.

Will update now, Skarain & Mallucis, thanks.

The list does demonstrate that we only have a few rp guilds now, can we actually get anything going? Historically, we've been a very guild-centric server for rp (well, from Horde experience).

There are some guilds that rarely visit this forum, though I couldn't give you correct details. But the Wardens of Azeroth are still around, and there are the Clans of Khaz Modan, can't recall any others off the top of my head.

Definitely. You do not need large numers for something great. Alliance doesn't seem to have any problem in brewing RP between multiple guilds. Sure, Horde has been guild focused, but doesn't mean those can not interact or work together as well. I for sure got some plans that I am going to use my character and Horde guild to forward.

Should I talk about them with you in here or hook up with you ingame?

Pretty sure Shatterskull Marauders are still around but no idea how active they are. It's one guild that has its active and more quiet times but never truly dies! Atleast they lack active forum person. Very Happy
