(Q): What do you think makes a good roleplayer?

(A): A friend recommended the guild.
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 be Ri’She and I be a troll.
(Q): Why do you wish to join the warband?
(A): I ‘ave come ta realise it be time fo’ me ta get back on da battlefields. I jus’ came back from a long fishin’ trip across Azeroth. I been cravin’ fo’ some good battle an’ what else dan a warband would fit mah needs bettah?
(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): All I’ve evah done is fightin’ fo’ da Horde.
(Q): Please tell us a bit about yourself, this can be personal history, hobbies, or anything.
(A): I ‘ave committed fo’ learnin’ da spirits and ways o’ healin’. I know what ta do and how ta make da most o’ mah skills.
I get pleasure bein’ in da middle o’ fightin’ troops – da cling o’ metal be music fo’ mah ears. But dere be a silly side o’ me too; as much as I like ta take care o’ soldiers, I also like ta be alone. Travelin’ be close ta mah heart. And fishin’. I like dem fishies.
Some say I seem ta be quite ‘appy all da time and yah, dat be mah nature! I was born in da Vale but dere be not much ta say about mah past.
(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): Dere be one thing ya can expect and trust from me – ta keep ya alive.
If it be needed I ‘ave got some sharpie claws too. Dey jus’ be a lil rusty. Mah tusks are sharp tho’! Good fo’ bitin’.
(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): War be a serious matter ta me. I plan ta be da most loyal an’ hardworkin’ troll ya will evah come across.
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): Duty be duty. I will nevah leave mah post unless I be ordered to. Friends or not, I won’t be lettin’ mah feelings get in da way while at war.
