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): < My name is Brerina. I am an Orc which hails from Durotar >
(Q): Why do you wish to join the warband?
(A): < I come from a family of weak males, that bring nothing but shame to my ancestors. I wish to join the warband as I feel the need to make up for my weaker brothers who made incompetent warriors. They are stuck at home looking after my sick father, while I join the Shatterskull Marauders to bring some respect back to my bloodline >
(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 my life I have been looked down on by my family because of my gender. One time, my eldest brother Makar was forced by my father to kill some crocs for supper. He couldn't do it. I stepped in and gutted that creature's heart out, only to stop my father from being so ashamed. So to answer your question, yes I am willing to fight and more importantly kill in the name of the Horde, and The Shatterskull Marauders >
(Q): Please tell us a bit about yourself, this can be personal history, hobbies, or anything.
(A): < Well, I come from a family of 4 (now 3, as one was killed during the cataclysm) brothers. My mother was the one I looked up to the most, she was made of raw courage and gave honour to female orcs. She died when I was young at the hands of the wretched humans. My brothers would do nothing about it; they are still afraid. But not I, I intend to remember my mother and eventually avenge her. My father is now a sick man, he is dying and I promised him before I left that I would make something of myself before he died. This led me to the Shatterskull Marauders>
(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): < People often make the joke that I belonged in the kitchen slicing up dinner with my knives. I have learned that this trait can be transferred to my foes. I dual wield my blades and bring them down with swift fury, and justice, upon my enemies. They won't know what hit them. >
(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): < If I had any of these traits I would still be the little girl mourning her lost mother and taking abuse from my brothers. Take my word on it, I won't be any of these things. >
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 will attempt to get my father and brothers (sigh*) out of harms way by sneaking them out of the city with me. I will then ensure my blades are extra sharp for the carnage that is to come to those who have abducted my Marauder brothers. The captors will pay the price and then I will rescue the Marauders. The city will have to fall for this duty. >
