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 am Lidda Ravensdale, a Seer from the Ashen Remnant previously based in the watch of icecrown. I am a Quel'Dorei
(Q): Why do you wish to join the warband?
(A): My time with the ashen remnant did me well and the crusades against arthas were long and brutal. I assisted your warband in the rebellion against Garrosh, my time there made me question my own choices. I wish to join you to affirm my belief that the horde is a lesser evil in this conflict.
(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): I am
(Q): Please tell us a bit about yourself, this can be personal history, hobbies, or anything.
(A): I am a big reader into history, the arts and other subjects. i enjoy tending to those that are wounded, if you can call that a hobby. I am also a big fan of taking care of my pets. My history in the ashen remnant and verdict hardened me to the ways of a militant and solitary life so i am looking forward to making new friends
(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 am an adept healer who has dabbled in the paths of shadow to enhance my abilities as a seer
(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 serving you to the best of my ability
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): Before anything i would attempt to determine whether there is a suitable replacement for the defenses.
I would inform one of the watch of my desertion and devotion to my companions before leaving, informing them to tell a commanding officer as i left. Hopefully a suitable replacement would be available upon my desertion. I cannot abandon my friends to a fate worse than an honorable death.
