OUT OF CHARACTERAs we are a roleplaying guild, we will only take those applicants on who are enthusiastic about RP. You don't have to be a lore know-it-all, or turn into a walking dictionary to join us however some basic knowledge is prefered. The Marauders however wont hesitate to educate you on what you need, considering you're willing to learn! We do also offer a raid team, and a PvP team that you will have the chance to join if you are accepted into the Marauders.(Q): Please note any RP experience you have (The Marauders are willing to help you if you lack experience considering you are willing to learn!)
(A): I have played roleplaying games since I was about 10 years old, meaning some 23 years of playing casually, sometimes more regularly. I have RP'ed in WoW About a year altogether, also have tried in SWTOR and one or two other games.(Q): Why do you want to join us?
(A): I play currently mainly on RP server, but need RPPVP environment in addition. I want a home for my troll, a home where I can join in stuff and make new friends. I have a need to play a different character in addition to my main character, just to keep my interest in playing fit. You guys seem to run things well, but not too uptightly; just the way I like it. Also, as I'm unemployed I have a lot of free time, and one guild just can't organize enough stuff for my liking (this also means I mean to play actively on both servers), two guilds should be better (Q): What is your own definition of roleplay?
(A): A simulation of more or less fictional a world, and fictional characters' lifes and minds. A play without a thorough script. A means of making a fairytale with your friends come alive.(Q): What do you think makes a good roleplayer?

(A): Yes, not much experience yet.(Q): Are you interested in PvP such as rated battlegrounds and arena groups? If so, what experience do you have with these
(A): Yes, a little experience from some 2-3 years back(Q): How did you hear about the Shatterskull Marauders? (Forum, friends, ingame etc)
(A): Asked where I could put my alt into in trade chat, Tantzui answered and told me more about you.
PS. I will need to level my panda up to take Vlan'Kai's spot in her current guild before I can join, will do this asap, but might take a day or two in a bad case.IN CHARACTER
(Meaning it's a dialog)Greetings potential Marauder. It is required of you to answer a series of questions in moderate detail so we can assess your suitability to us. We are a warband built on bloodthirst, strategy, honour, strength and respect. If you lack these, you are not the candidate for us. However, if you think you have what it takes, carry on!(Q): Please state your name and the race that you hail from.

(A): I an' I stay mostly by mahself in Feralas, away from civilization. Been like dat a loong time. I like ta dabble in odd books and artifacts, to learn what dey are and how dey work. I an' I make things of cloth, bags, clothing, all sortsa things, and bind spirits into dem ta make dem more powahful. I an' I talk wit dark spirits and dey respond in kind. Dis is haow it has been in my family for as long as da family has been and dis is haow it will forever be.(Q): We are considered an elite fighting force amongst the Horde. What have you trained and specialized in? What makes you unique in combat?

Dey send dem running scared without direction. I an' I create chaos in enemy ranks.(Q): We as a warband are not fond on cowardice, disobedience, or lack of strength. How will you plan to prove to us you lack these traits during your initiation period?
(A): I an' I do things dat hafta be done. I wish to show my loyalty fo' mah friends-ta-be. I an' I will learn discipline and train wit da warband a lot.The Alliance have launched an assault on the Horde of vast proportions. Your home city is under siege, you are defending the walls against your race's foes.
Caught on patrol whilst trying to reach you, your friends in the Marauders are taken prisoner by the Alliance, and in time will be executed. Your people will never allow you to leave; you can only abandon your post in secret. Leaving your post leaves a blind spot in your city’s defenses, one the Alliance are sure to notice and use to break through the walls.
If you rescue your friends, there is no chance you will be able to re-enter your city.
There is no chance the other races of the Horde can send military forces to your home city as they are fighting on their own fronts.
Time is growing short...(Q): Do you abandon your post and leave your city to die or do you break out under cover of darkness to rescue your friends?
(A): I an' I leave a dark spirit ta watch ovah my post an' sneak out ta save mah friends wen da night falls.
