[Last updated 2/2/11 with Cataclysm changes to the second OOC Section]OOC Section 1
The Shatterskulls are a roleplaying (RP) guild, and as such if you are not interested in roleplaying this isn't the guild for you, and we encourage you to and wish you luck in finding a guild which best suits your playstyle. You don't have to have any RP experience to join, only an interest and basic knowledge of RP.1) Are you interested in Roleplaying?
Well, as far as I am concerned RP is the next best thing after sliced bread! I mean, I always love to join into random RP-events I can find, though admittedly there are not many of those on TVC, sadly. And also, if I wasn't interested, why would I apply?
Guild perks alone do not cut it!2) Please briefly explain what Roleplaying is.
Let's see…trying to behave as you character would do, react to stuff as he/she would? Or is it too obvious and basic?3) What RP experience (if any) have you had?
In WoW - not too much. I have engaged in random RP events on Alliance side on Defias Brotherhood (rolled a char there just to RP on
). But I always have some sort of backstory for my char in any game I play, even if it's a tiny, simple one. This allows me to react to stuff as the char should, not as I see fit.
Outside of WoW - been playing D&D for over 6 years now. Played Field RPG with some friends of mine. RPG is my favourite game type and in those I always try to react as my character would, even if I can tell that the other answer/action will give me better results. Just cause it's more fun this way, as far as I am concerned!4) Please state three rules of RP.
Just three?! And as far as I am concerned there are no strict "rules", there are however guidance notes! Let's see…I will skip all the "no smileys, IC" and "no abbreviations IC", even though I do say "lol" and "gg" irl…as well as "irl"
1) Have a backstory of your char ready. And always (I mean ALWAYS) keep it in mind! Do not react to things YOU know, if your CHAR does not know it. And when you do react - react in the way your char would!
2) There is no "wrong way to RP". Everyone sees RP as a way to express himself. The is no wrong answer here! You might disagree with someone and say that he should behave differently, but that is your opinion! If the person can back his reaction with solid IC facts - he has the right to do that. If he cannot back it up - he is still in a right to do it…maybe he is just crazy IC…
3) Only RP if you find it fun. If you will have no fun in some aspect - you will be quite poor of a RPer there. For eg, if you want to RP a warrior, the Mighty Uugrhsndr, slayer of the people with unpronounceable names - do just that! Do not try and role-play a farmer. Well…not "do not" but more likely than not - you will find it boring and you might ruin the RP for 50 farmers around you! And that is not good at all!Bonus one)
Never ruin RP for fellow players…don't like what they are doing - turn around and F off! As long as they are not ruining your RP - they are very much in the right to do whatever they want! And all those people who run around yelling "ROFL, ArrrPeee!!! Get a life nabs, you are not really mages!!!" Pretend they are not there…other plain of existence, if you would. In WoW we ARE mages (warlocks, druids, basically insert your class here)IC Section
Ah, hello there! No doubt if you’re reading this, you are probably very interested in applying to join the Shatterskull Marauders, a blood thirsty, slightly manic warband, might I say with an affinity for fighting, drinking and plunder! Sound like your kind of thing? If so fill out these simple questions and we’ll get back to you! Make sure you fill them out in as much detail as possible – though we don’t want your life story. You can save that for another day!
Don't worry at all, it's almost impossible to fail this application! We just want to know a bit more about you, that's all.
Blood and Thunder!
- Kharn Blackeye.1) First of all, it’s really helpful if you share with us your name. Your full name preferably. Silly nicknames to be added afterwards. Don’t ask about my own - long story involving a party trick...
Ya can call me Pelora, mon. All the cleverness of names are not fo' a plain ol' troll! Especially not da one brought up by da orcs!2) So from what race do you hail?
You be kidding, mon?! *points at her tusks and ears* what do these look like?! Dental floss and fancy helmet?! Ima troll, mon.3) Tell us a little bit about yourself, keep it short, simple and snappy. Sum up your life so far!
Short an snappy? I was born, I grew up, I be here! Short enough?
If you be wanting a longer life story - I cannot be telling you about me childhood, mon! I don't remembers it. Got hit on da head, I be told. Grew up ever since I was a teenager with some orc buddies of mine. So I likes talking Orcish mot of da time. Feels more natural to me! The rest of ma story be too long to fit in this tiny gap, mon, buy da lady a drink and we shall see where it takes us…rem…story-telling-wise, mon, not what your perverted mind thought! Get da grin of your face!4) What do you specialise in? Fighting? Magic? Dodgy deals? What is your area of expertise?
Like most in our perilous world, I be trained at combat, mon! But I no like da swords or axes. I do some voodoo to keep the enemy away…or heal maself. Or if the time allows ma comrades…unlike most trolls I met, though, I have little knowledge of nature or ancestors…I follow da Light, mon…5) The Alliance, The Scourge and The Burning Legion; What are your personal feelings about these forces?
Alliance…huh…they are a bunch of scared goats as far as I am concerned, mon! They see no bigger picture…neva'…although, me likes gnomes…on a stick…roasted preferable, but me not fussy here!
Scourge...dere must always be da Lich King, mon...as long as dey do not try ta eat ma brains, I have no problem with dem, mon...I used to, but I had grown over dat...
Demons! *eyes flash* I be hunting dem wherever I can, mon...I be killing dem over and over...dey be ma mortal enemy, mon...6) What is your most prized possession?
What business is it of yours, mon?! I not going to share it with ya! And if ya try to steal it - I no going to be ya friend no more…you will see ma bad side, mon! No, stay away from dat question, mon…7) How did you hear about the warband?
You are not exactly keeping yourselves in da shadows, are you? I mean, all the people in da tabards of da Marauders…all da yelling in big cities that able-bodied people should consider your army…warband I mean, mon…warband… Why do you wish to join the warband?
What would you like to hear, mon? I do not wish to crack any skulls, ima quite peaceful, mon…sometimes…what I want is somewhere to develop maself. I am done flying solo, mon! I want some comrades at ma sides!9) Why should we take you?
Why shouldn't you?! I be good, mon! Try me! Ma voodoo is strong, Ima good at holding ma drinks, I can cook if needed, though don't be seeing me as a cook-only! Oh and dance…I am da sexiest devil when it comes to dancing! What else do ya need?!10) And finally, sum yourself up using one word, and one word only!
Erm…oh…I guess I used one word…rem…aye, mon…let "what" be da word! I be weird, and curious, so "what" be a nice word for me!OOC Section 2
Thanks for applying to the Shatterskull Marauders! Should you successfully pass the IC part of our interview, we may require some additional information to help us work out the best options for Marauder Raiding, RP and PvP. So if it’s possible could you please answer the questions which apply to you below:1) Where did you hear about us?
No, seriously, I saw this question somewhere…where was it…oh, that's right! Just above! I have been on the TVC for many years now, and it was hard not to notice the vast amount of people running around with the tag under their names…also the yells in trade about you helped me to notce you!2) What do you hope to find in the Shatterskull Marauders?
RP…I hope to find a way to discover my inner troll! Some random HCs, Raids, BGs, etc are a nice addition, but what I want the most is - RP!
Oh and guild perks…cannot miss those out too! I want them! And at least I am being honest, in saying I love those! 3) Do you intend to raid? If so you should contact Sylphi, our raiding officer and check the raiding section of the forums once you've been initiated.
Pelora is my alt. She used to be my main a long time ago, but no longer. I still would love to have some raids done on her, but with alt-runs or something like that.4) Do you intend to PvP?If so Thrakha, our PvP officer will have all the details about current PvP happenings.
Yah, PvP sounds fun. Especially the RP-PVP. Though again - Pelora is my alt, so I cannot promise I will raid and/or PvP all the time, cause I wont...
Questions for rerollers and alts only1) What level is your character currently at?
82 and counting!2) How far do you think you will level your character
85…duh…though the time it will take will be depending on the activity of me on other chars and the stuff I will find to do on her apart from levelling 3) Who's your main character?
Legendairy, the druid from Horde Defenders4) How active do you think you'll be on this character?
On Pelora? Or on my main?
On Pelora at the moment, I intend to be semi-active, as in play on her when I am not on Legendairy. But if history taught me anything, is that I cannot predict how active I will be in a month. But hey! If I am slacking too much - /gkick is always there! You have nothing to lose, right?
