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): Tharnug. Tauren.
(Q): Why do you wish to join the warband?
(A): I seek companiens to travel with, and a purpose in life. The road can be tiresome on your own.
(Q): While with us, you will be required to fight. Are you willing to fight to the best of your ability for the sake of the Horde and the warband?
(A): Yes. My weapon and i are ready for when the time comes...
(Q): Please tell us a bit about yourself, this can be personal history, hobbies, or anything.
(A): ( This is copy/pasted from the MRP Addon ):
Tharnug is a mid aged Tauren who likes to travel around the world, and see in he's own way, what the lands of Azeroth has to offer. Even if it means to approach inevitable danger. He is loyal to the people he know, and is often seen with a smile. He prefers to act instead of speaking, and is often short with words. That does not mean he doesn't like you!
(Q): We are considered an elite fighting force amongst the Horde. What have you trained and specialized in? What makes you unique in combat?
(A): I prefer both my hands on the same, single, great-weapon. Im mostly comfortable with a two hander that mathces my own size. Count on me to be on the frontline where the fighting is thickest!
(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): By following orders, and knowing my place, and slowly build peoples trust over time.
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): First off i would clear my head, and accept that no matter which i choose, the outcome would still be catastrophic. If the warband was close like family i would abandon the city for the sake of my companions. Though after i would probally feel very guilty and ashamed, but knowing what i did was the right thing for me.
