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): < Groloth Of The Tauren. >
(Q): Why do you wish to join the warband?
(A): < To protect my homeland from the terrifying creatures from across the sea! >
(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): < Certainly, I am a soldier of the Horde! >
(Q): Please tell us a bit about yourself, this can be personal history, hobbies, or anything.
(A): < I am a fan of fishing and herbalism, I often patrol the plains of Mulgore searching for herbs and watching for Alliance or other threats. As a child of Mulgore, it is my duty to protect my homeland, and the lands of my allies and kin. >
(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): < From early childhood, I was trained in the ways of martial combat, I use my size, bulk and weight to my advantage in battle, smashing and crushing my enemies. I am most skilled in melee and hand-to-hand combat, my kick has crushed bones, and my punches to break skulls. >
(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 will never turn down from an honourable fight, and lack of strength is something that I, as a Tauren do not have, strength is in my blood and I am bound by my honour to obey the orders of my leaders within the Horde. >
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): < Though my loyalties lie with the Horde and my homeland, my friends and kin come before all else, I would sneak from my post and save my brothers and sisters in arms. >
