[H] Sanctuary

Horde RP Guild, Twisting Nether ~ Originally Founded 3-30-2006
Guild Website



Sanctuary was a storied guild, once. Its embrace of justice and peace made it respected by some and despised by others. But after Garrosh came to power, there was no room left in the new Horde for such ideals. Under the hostile regime, Sanctuary's members were hunted until the guild was a hollow, smoking ruin. Some of its former members managed to go underground, carrying on their cause, but by the time Garrosh was deposed, the guild was remembered only in hushed whispers.

Then, the banner was bravely raised by a young newcomer. Members old and new have taken it up in an unprecedented revival. Sanctuary's tabard is once again worn on the streets of Orgrimmar and into Draenor, albeit slightly changed: its hammer has become a phoenix.


The Vows

Peace: I will not initiate hostilities.

Justice: I will react with force only to defend the innocent, or in fair, consensual combat.

Mercy: I will respond to hostility with the least amount of force required.

Sacrifice: I will forgive mistakes, insults, and injuries to my person for the sake of peace, justice, and mercy.



Please contact Julilee, Kexti, Kargron, Vilmah, Nojinbu, Cerryan, or Grisch for more information or an in-character interview, or visit Sanctuary's website.

Sanctuary's Out-of-Character Structure & Rules


Restrictions
Sanctuary's restrictions effectively boil down to: don't jump Alliance. You may participate in arenas and battlegrounds (consensual combat), and act in defense of Horde cities or other Horde players who are attacked (defending the innocent), but you may not instigate a fight or attack Alliance settlements. There may be exceptions for extraordinary evildoers who merit being placed on a "kill on sight" list – extraordinary meaning significantly more than typical world PvP skirmishes.

If you wish to violate these restrictions for roleplay purposes, please discuss it ahead of time with the officers so that we can maintain Sanctuary's longstanding reputation.


Code of Conduct
Sanctuary member players are expected to be laudable representatives of the guild and ambassadors of the roleplay community.

OOC Guidelines:
  • Assume the best of others, and always try to be the best person you can be.
  • Be solution-oriented and positive when conflicts arise.
  • Separate yourself from drama and do not be a person who fosters it.
  • Accept that not all personality types mesh well and minimize negative influences.
IC Guidelines:
  • Involve yourself with others and they will be happy to return the favor!
  • Only describe your character's actions and let your opponent or partner decide theirs.
  • Keep out-of-character and in-character knowledge separate.
  • Be ready to work around the mistakes or inconsistencies that occur.
  • Ensure in-character interactions aren't taken personally. When an antagonistic scene occurs, communicate OOC to ensure that everyone is willing and having a satisfactory roleplay session.

Guild Conventions
IC vs. OOC: Guild chat is an in-character, "radio frequency" type communication channel, via hearthstone or other communication device. Officer chat is out of character and available to all members, and Sanctuary also has a custom channel for members, their alts, and friends of the guild to socialize. Say and Yell are always in character. Party, Raid, Instance, and Whispers are either in or out of character, but are most often out of character.

Garrison: Most members of Sanctuary recognize a communal garrison, naturally referred to as Sanctuary Garrison or just "the garrison". Whosever garrison is being visited is considered Sanctuary's garrison. Buildings and their placement varying is not considered noteworthy. Individuals who choose to adopt a different story for their own garrison are welcome to.


Structure
There are six ranks in Sanctuary:

  1. Commander - guildmaster
  2. Myrmidon - officers
  3. Emissary - officer alts
  4. Guardian - full members
  5. Scout - member alts
  6. Initiate - new members
An additional rank, "MIA", is used for those who are not currently active in the game or officially members of Sanctuary.


Alliances & Rivalries
In character, Sanctuary is formally allied with The Outriders (H), Borrowed Time (H), and Twilight Empire (A), and is in open conflict with The Grim (H).

Out of character, Sanctuary enjoys a friendly and collaborative relationship with all other roleplaying guilds. :)

Good. The Outriders' policies are very similar to yours.

Huh, it's Twilight Empire...but for the Horde. I would like to officially back this guild with what tiny insignificant pull I have in our nest of servers.

I'd love to talk to you guys. Being in my guild of one is fun and all, but I miss having people to hang out with, and your guild's mission fits perfectly with Lukar's own ideals.
