  1. The Storyteller Request forums are for you to be able to request temporary DM powers to run an event of your own design. Your request will only be visible to the DMs, staff, and yourself. The storyteller role can be used to run chain events, or simply one off events. Players are able to provide RP for the public in their own medium, without the commitment to the actual Dungeon Master role. You are expected to provide the proper details and scope of your event. Not every details needs to be given, however, but the more specific you are the better. You can also request a co-DM from the Creative Team as a resource (i.e help with commands, spawning, and other event details). Approval of your role will pass through the Managers or Moderators. Applications can be denied due to: vagueness, severe lack of detail, inability to fill out the format, or if they violate server rules. You are not guaranteed the storyteller role, and your events might be subject to change. Changes might include: location, scope, or rewards. Creative Mangers may tell you that your event does not require the storyteller role and can be done without the need of commands. Please understand that our Creative Team works to provide you with a quality experience within the warcraft-universe. If you wish to share in that experience, express your creativity, or work with the people behind the scenes on Paragon, then this is the appropriate role for you. DISCLAIMER: Please note, that if your Storyteller Request has been approved, but not progressed in the course of 1 month (due to player fault or without excuse), then the Manager(s) reserve the right to revoke the temporary status of the applicant and they must apply again. Storyteller Request Format: Once your application has been reviewed and approved by a Manger or Moderator, you will be contacted in-game or directly on Discord. If your application sits for longer than one week, please contact a Creative Manger or Moderator. If you have any further questions about the format of the application or "what can I apply for, and what can't I apply for", contact an Creative Manger or Dungeon Master, thank you. This forum post is subject to change.
  2. Welcome to the information & template over applying for clarifications in the lore, be it for expanding some concept of a class or explaining a grey area of lore in detail. The Point of Applications World of Warcraft, Legion is an expansive story which covers many classes - from buccaneers to the Skardyn featured in Night of the Dragon. The WoWRPG books refer to many more, and the universe that Warcraft is in is much larger than what we have seen. However, not everything can be added. We can't be allowing far off planets to suddenly have species such as modernised mankind, and we certainly can't have Pacific Rim occurring on Azeroth for no apparent reason. Thus, custom lore applications exist to filter the ideas that don't fit in or are taking advantage of the 'infinite possibilities' that the Warcraft Universe might allow, and restrain custom lore to adjusting Blizzard Lore or detailing classes that suit already exist in Warcraft. Bards, Dancing martial arts are examples of things that don't break the current mechanics of magic or combat in Warcraft, and clarifications exist in order to correct what Blizzard might have overseen as contradictory. Lore Additions either based from current Warcraft Lore or the WoW RPG will be taken with more criticism by the Moderation Team and possibly the Community, but they have the chance of being included in the server canon as long as they are aligned with the logic and environment of the Warcraft universe. This system does not accept custom races. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– The Application Process In most cases your application will elaborate on what Blizzard hasn't. In some cases your application will bridge the gap between logic that Blizzard hasn't necessarily made. For instance, the motives of the Night Watch turning to the Legion. The application must be sound and fit within the constraints and requirements of Blizzard Lore. Upon approval, applications will either be filtered into 'Homebrew', which is used for very detailed outlines of a classes capabilities, or Blizzard, in which it modifies or clarifies some lore. Lore applications are never considered declined, but will be archived if not approved in their current iteration or no longer worked on for a long time. All Lore applications must be left up for review for a minimum of 14 days, prior to being approved. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Lore Clarification Application Template Both moderators and players are able to provide feedback, and moderators can either support or vote against the application. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
  3. Welcome to the information & template over applying for miscellaneous items for your character that they otherwise wouldn't start with. The list provided below is not considered complete and may be expanded upon in the future. Application Process The point of this application is to ensure that your character is skilled enough to be able to obtain the item or companion that requires more skill and, or, understanding than what's expected from a freshly made character. If you're obtaining an item from someone then the player creating the item must make the application for whomever its for. Certain forbidden summons/constructs can be used by players with the Antagonist Status. Please contact a moderator or manager for information. Certain races/classes do not need to apply for specific pets or materials. Please contact a moderator for information. The template is cut into several sections so you need only fill in what you're applying for. Questions in bold are mandatory however. Upon making an application you have to wait for the approval of two staff members and for them to move your application to Approved before you can use your item, or companion, in roleplay. Miscellaneous Application Template: Pre-Miscellaneous Template Since the miscellaneous application is new and players could have obtained things in the past via Contact Staff there is a section to avoid retroactively apply for something you already have. It's merely to help with documenting what players and their characters have. Things that require a misc application: Pets: [Contact Moderator] Pets: [Progression] Pets: [Forbidden] Advanced Summons: [Contact Moderator] Advanced Summons: [Progression] Advanced Summons: [Forbidden] Engineering [Contact Moderator] Engineering [Progression] Engineering [Forbidden]: Expanded Guide to Materials: Color Key: Progression, Contact Moderator, Free, Forbidden. Cloth (or used in tailoring): Leather (or used in leatherworking): Metals (or used in blacksmithing): Misc materials and Enhancements: Good luck with your application! - The Moderation Team
  4. ██████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████ Welcome to the information & template for applying for an extension for either your characters house or your Guild HQ. Foreword Please only make an extension request when you know it will be used frequently. Don't make one just because you can. We expect proof that it will be roleplayed in often. You should only be making this extension application if you are adding a new room, small building, a garden, or something of similar scale. Depending on the scale of the extension an application may not be necessary. A few new pots and plants or objects in your interior merely needs you to ask a builder and get staff permission. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– The Application Process This application should only be made if you have a House application or a Guild HQ application that has been approved already. Upon making an application you have to wait for approval of one staff member in order for it to be approved. They will update the prefix of the thread to 'Waiting for Builder' Once approved, a builder is free to pick it up and assign it to themselves. They will also update the prefix of the thread to 'Being Built'. Upon completed, your interior will be moved to 'Finished'. If you fail to maintain contact with the builders, your interior may become Shelved instead. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Extension Application Template Your application will be in public for a total of three days before a final verdict can be made. During this time, however, both staff and players are able to provide feedback, and staff can either support or vote against the application. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ██████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████
  5. ███████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████ Welcome to the information & template for applying for a Guild HQ which your guild can inhabit and can be roleplayed as your guilds base of operations. Foreword Please only make a Guild HQ request when you know it will be used frequently. Don't make one just because you can. We expect proof that it will be roleplayed in often. In addition, only consider making a Guild HQ request if you have more than ten active guild members. Whilst your Guild HQ is being built it helps substantially if you keep in communication with the builder who has undertaken your interior build. These HQs are on a scale for a small guild, so keep your request within the constraints of six buildings. Interiors build in the Guild HQ and then distributed to the guild members do not require interior applications. The additional interiors should be small. All Guild HQs must not be in public phases. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– The Application Process Upon making an application you have to wait for approval of one staff member in order for it to be approved.

  6. ██████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████ Welcome to the information & template for applying for an interior which your character can inhabit and you can roleplay as your characters house. Foreword Please only make an interior request when you know it will be used frequently. Don't make one just because you can. Whilst your interior is being built it helps substantially if you keep in communication with the builder who has undertaken your interior build. These interiors are on a scale for an individual character, so keep your request within the constraints of two to three buildings. Tents (with or without outdoor utilities) that don't exceed 75 ingame square yards do not need to be applied for, but inform a builder or staff when you're done using it so it can be removed. All private interiors must not be in public phases. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– The Application Process Upon making an application you have to wait for approval of one staff member in order for it to be approved.

  7. Welcome to the information & template for applying for a character to be able to resurrect, or posting a resurrection attempt. The Application Process This application is to certify that you are allowed to resurrect other characters or to justify the resurrection of a character. The first application template, the Resurrector Application Template, needs to be approved before you can resurrect someone. In order to be approved to resurrect people you need two approvals from the staff team. If you choose to resurrect someone, you will have to make a new post under your application explaining why the resurrection is valid using the second application template, the Resurrection Application Template. In order to be allowed to carry out your resurrection you will need one staff approval. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Resurrector Application Template Your application is in public for at least of three days before a final verdict is made. During this time both staff and players are able to provide feedback, and staff can either support or vote against the application. You can ask for the admins to respond after seven days if the application is still pending. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Resurrection Application Template Your form is in public with no time restriction before a final verdict is made. You only require one staff approval for the resurrection to go through. You can ask for the admins to respond after three days if the application is still pending. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
  8. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Welcome to the information for applying for a rank, whether it be restricted or not. List of Ranks All Ranks are revocable if the moderation team deems that they are being misrepresented. Ranks which require in-game progression are in bold and underlined, and might have a note attached on how to consider progressing into them If any rank is marked with an asterisk(*), they have a higher expectation of quality and thus require an additional moderation team member to vote upon it. If any rank is marked with the [Limited] tag, only a certain amount may be active at one time, listed here. If any rank is marked with the [Ask] tag, you need to contact a Moderator before being able to play one. Keep in mind the ranks are listed here without possible army sizes (military) and detailed information. Every military/nobility/organization has a link attached to it with extra information. Be sure to keep to give them a read if you're interested in playing in any of these hierarchies. Faction Militaries For more information about army sizes and extra information regarding these ranks, visit the lore clarification or the faction mega thread. There are some new updated and improved clarifications for some races and these are within the spoiler tagged as (Clarification 2.0). Alliance Horde Nobility Ranks Nobility ranks are generally not seen as "progression-required" due to the fact that higher-tiered ranks are inherited due to your lineage/family having had these titles for a long time. We, however, won't make it impossible for players to gain the lowest of ranks through progression as a sort of reward from the Kingdom. However keep in mind if you're an established noble and would somehow like to move up the ranks that it is not impossible, however it will require extensive work from that noble's part to become one of the rare exceptions the kingdom may grant a higher title to. Don't put all your money on this route, it's the exception to the rule. Noble ranks that are being Applied for as inheritance, examples being when a Noble Character dies and the Player wishes to have it inherited by his son or someone else, requires only a Restricted Application. Humans Organizational Ranks These are groups/organizations that have a rank hierarchy but aren't necessarily part of the race's main militaries. All organization names are links to their respective clarifications.

  9. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Welcome to the information for applying for a restricted class or race. List of Classes & Races All Characters are revokable if the moderation team deems that they are being misrepresented. The Classes and Races which are restricted appear in a separate list and possess the following formatting: If any class or race is marked with an asterisk(*), they have a higher expectation of quality and thus require an additional moderation team member to vote upon it. If any class or race is marked with the [Limited] tag, only a certain amount may be active at one time, listed here. Races or classes in [Contact Moderator] require you to contact a Moderator before being able to play one. Most classes on the List have been explained or extended on in the Class Guide. Note: If you want to play your character in a specific way or race/class that is not specified on the list and would like to know if this is allowed on Paragon. Check the Class Guide to see if it has been written there, if not please make a thread in the Contact Staff subforum about it. Please note, if it's not implicitly stated in this list that the class/race is classified as 'Free to Play' (**This does not include RPG classes or races as Paragon does not use the RPG**). If there are any questions simply make a post in Contact Staff or ping the Moderation Team in Discord.

  10. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Welcome to the information about applications and the template that you'll need to use. The Point of Applications World of Warcraft goes beyond the classes and races that the character screen provides. Many have no official support from Blizzard, but are observed in the setting itself. In the players hands, this is untapped creative potential. We can have varying characters which produce different outcomes in roleplay, as well as both good, neutral and evil races that shape the storyline The point of the application system is to ensure that these races and classes are not grossly misused. There are much higher tier classes than the generic ones provided at the beginning, and these classes can become very powerful. We promote responsibility, and to do so we ask you to recognise how important fallibility is. 'Progression' is required for some classes, and is a perception of the community as to how much your character has developed from day one. The more you spend time on that character roleplaying, the more prevalence they have in Paragon: the more 'stage presence' they have. Progression is not fully reflective of what your character is capable of. Progression also refers to the in-character progress one makes towards a certain goal. The application you submit reflects your understanding. If there are errors, they will be pointed out. Warcraft's source material needs to be read and understood by the writer. We do not give you many chances to adjust or correct your application. Tweaking your application is fine, but fully overhauling the history following feedback is not acceptable. You are approved based on your understanding and responsible roleplaying with other people, not your ability to take criticism. You can only have one character/promotion application up at the same time (Misc. and Interior applications are separate from this limit). The following 'wait' timers are to be respected: Approval: 3 days from approval date until you can post a new application. Denial: 1 days from denial date until you can post a new application. Application thread titles need to contain your character's full name and what you are applying for. Meme, unclear, and/or vague titles can and will be denied. This is for archival purposes. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Categories of Applications Classes and Races: The application system that Paragon uses for classes and races has 3 categories. These four ways are the following: Free, Restricted and Forbidden. 'Free' does not require you to venture any further into the application system. Just see if the race or class you want to play is on the list at the bottom and you are free to make them and start roleplaying immediately. In these cases it's hard for you to mess up as you have very limited morals to abide by: they are all very physical or arcane based classes. However we also listen out for complaints regarding your character. If things sound illogical for that class or race, then we will investigate by inquiring with you and those involved. If we find that these complaints are true, we will consider revoking you. In most cases we will give a stern warning and one more chance. When you are revoked, you may not play as a similar race or class for up to a month. During that time we hope you brush up on your understanding of that race or class. Those that are Restricted are mostly titles and ranks, but have the odd Race or Class. These require you to demonstrate that you are knowledgeable enough to be able to portray a complex and often difficult character. We cannot accept an application based on 'retroactive progression' - you cannot apply for something you promise to train for in the future. Just like you can not make an application based on retroactive progression, we will not be accepting applications where you claim the character was something all along (such as only now revealing you were a Dreadlord all this time) We do allow applications to be applied for in Contact Moderation as hidden applications, however these are for races, classes, and ranks considered to just be a checkup to ensure you're prepared instead of a full application. The final category is a list of forbidden races and classes. It is obvious we do not want people playing as a Titan, or a Titanic Watcher, or an Old God or even a Naaru. Needless to say, these are increasingly integral parts to the storyline and few in number. If you're considering playing a Titan, then you really need to think about what makes a good character. Even if we were to allow them, they do not engage in mortal affairs and so would be an exercise in pointlessness. Ranks: The application system that Paragon uses for ranks has 4 categories. These four ways are the following: Free, Restricted, Progression and Forbidden. 'Free' does not require you to venture any further into the application system. Just see if the rank you want to play is on the list at the bottom and you are free to make them and start roleplaying immediately. This however, doesn't mean a Moderator may pull your ear for playing it wrongly or inappropriatedly, and the way you play it will incur in Character Revokal if the Team deems your method of playing it to be harmful to the rules. Progressed Ranks require you to have reached this rank through roleplay on the server. In other words they need to be ‘Progressed’ into. These cannot be applied for as fresh characters unlike the Restricted application ranks. The final category are forbidden ranks. These are ranks that are typically held by lore characters or have too much power to be held by a single player character. These cannot be applied for and applications for these will be instantly denied. Titles: Titles are perhaps one of the more special ideas you can achieve through an application. Titles are not directly tied to any sort of actual power (through combat or influence) and are usually heavily tied to a location/group/faction. Usually these titles are honorary and nothing more than that. There are certain organizations that are listed in Ranks that are once again listed in the Titles section. However the titles that are provided by these organizations are not denoting any real power level, are usually obtained in an honorary manner and are without any prior rank requirement. Forces: This application does not require you to have an active Character Application that has been approved already unless your approved character holds rank with a Forces limit in one of the organizations listed in our Lore Clarification & Additions If changes that have incurred in the original character application the ranking characters' cases, please append it in an additional post highlight the changes. This is only applicable for personality and understanding. Promotions: This application should only be made if you have an active Character Application that has been approved already. Moderators will vote on a Promotion Application using a different format similar to that used in the Forces Application. You will need two staff approvals for moderate ranks and forces and three for high ranks and large forces. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Character/Forces/Promotion Application Template: Before you start filling in this application, please ensure you have read the entirety of the Character & Promotion Application Format Template thread again to ensure you're not missing out on any crucial changes to the system. Finally, make sure that people have a gist of what your roleplaying is like. We tend to use this to decide whether or not you can cope with one of the restricted races or classes. We'd like to reinforce that taking a few more minutes to read the Template may avoid misunderstandings in the future. Character Application Template: Forces Application Template: Promotion Application Template: Both the Moderation team and Players are able to provide feedback, and the moderation team can either support or vote against the application. You can ask for the Admin to respond after seven days if the application is still pending. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
  11. Welcome to the information & template over applying for for a moderation team position on Paragon. The Moderator Rank What is a Moderator? The Moderator role has many responsibilities and roles that it places in the server. On one side, the Moderator is responsible for enforcing the rules on the server in all vectors, however, the Moderator is looked at by the community as the Loremaster, and with such is expected to have an intimate understanding with Warcraft and Paragon custom-developed clarifications and additions. Lastly and most importantly, the Moderator is a mediator, finding a resolution for conflict in a viable way. Below are some of the basic outlines of what a Moderator should strive for: The Moderator is able to moderate everywhere (Discord, Forums, In-Game) to ensure the Rules on Paragon are followed, to assist Players both new and old in any way they are able and review Applications on the Forums. Ideally the Moderator should be striving to have the utmost coverage. Players RPing on the game server should always have a means to contact the Moderator (In-Game or Discord works the best). Whenever possible the Moderator should help promote Roleplay whether it's by creating content for a while or share rumors and event schedules. They shouldn't have the idea they sit on a high chair enforcing rules but rather help Paragon and it's Community be active and flow with Roleplay and ideas. Finally, the Moderator will have to show sufficient activity In-Game or their rank will be taken from them. Their presence on the Forums and Discord is also expect to handle with In-Game matters but not so much for moderation of these mediums. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– The Application Process The application process usually (but not always) lasts for up to a week and begins with your filling out the form of questions below. Make a new thread under this section of whatever topic name you want, and copy and paste the below questions into your new thread and answer them. Please consider formatting them in a legible state: Whilst you probably won't get credit for making it appear fancy, it's still nice to see a change from monotonous grey text. Make sure to pick [MOD] prefix tag, so the community understands what you're applying for. After the application process has ended, the voting process starts -- how long it will last is at the discretion of the Administration. This is done through a full community alternative voting system. A form will be created and everyone is requested to vote on their preferred Candidate to become a Moderator. Depending on the size of Paragon's population at the time the minimum percentage someone needs is 51-60% to get a Trial run. After the Voting Process is closed, the voting rounds and results are published to the community in a thread. The most popular candidates are picked in order to fill trial slots as required. The normal trial period follows immediately hereafter and the Community is expected to give feedback through forms anonymously. The voting process functions in the following form: The Community, the Moderators, and the Administrator each represent 1 vote. If the Community votes reach the required percentage mentioned earlier in this Template, it is considered a Yes. Less than that means No. In the Moderation Team, an impasse is considered a negative vote automatically. And then the Administrator gets 1 vote. Abstentions makes the vote invalid. A candidate requires 2/3 votes to be granted a Trial as Moderator. It is valid to remember that the 3 groups voting can always outvote one another depending on the situation. At the end of the trial, the community's feedback will be compiled and the administration publishes the outcome. Depending on the reason for a trial being failed, if at all, you may receive a Punishment on your Warning sheet (Ex: If you failed because of harassing players or abused your powers) Keep in mind it is entirely possible for the Administration to pick a candidate without needing to go through the Application process as well. If the Administration believes someone would be a good pick for a Trial they can talk to the person directly about being given a Trial Moderator run. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Application Template Moderator –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– After the Application If you succeed in becoming a part of the Moderation Team, you will be on trial for up to a month (if not longer), with the same abilities as a full-fledged team member. This title means nothing and is just a means of saying "you're settling in" so as not to throw the entire ton of bricks over your head with no notice. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the admin on the forums or in-game. They will be happy to answer any and all questions regarding Moderation Team applications. Good luck!
  12. Welcome to the Information and Application Template of the Paragon Creative Team. THE CREATIVE TEAM Our server, being a roleplay community, relies heavily on events and the constant change of the environment we find ourselves in in order to provide the immersion necessary to conduct our fun, basically. While in the past we kept 2 Teams, those Teams are now unified as the Creative Team though the roles of Builder and Dungeon Master remain, with a third one encompassing both for those people who seek to either be more productive or have the time and effort to employ in both areas of our content production. THE DUNGEON MASTER & BUILDER ROLES The Dungeon Master provides danger, story, quests, puzzles, and purpose to the roleplayer and community. They are expected to be adaptive, creative, and to manage interactions impartially and responsibly with the community's wishes always in mind. Their powers consist of spawning and manipulating creatures, objects, spells, environments, sounds, and even players. Their goal is to provide an elevated and satisfying roleplaying experience above the norm. Adventures can be short and sweet, or span weeks; they can be mundane, or epic; they can be for one man, or twenty. The Dungeon Master can repurpose retail content or work from scratch. There is no rule forcing them to do either. ====================================================================================================== The Builder is responsible for building interiors and exteriors, and occasionally redecorating environments or helping Dungeon Masters make event areas on request. The Builder has access to .gameobject, .npc, .tele, .waystone and .wp commands, among a few others. The Builder may do unofficial builds or redecorate existing areas if they inform the Builder Manager beforehand and document their work. The Builder may use their powers to DM if they wish to, but must inform a DM Manager beforehand for permission. Abuse of these powers or failure to uphold these requirements will result in loss of the rank, and possible additional punishment for cases of abuse. THE APPLICATION PROCESS Pre-Application Requirements: At least 1 month of community membership. No past records of abusing your position, if you are re-applying. Application Timeline: Make a new application here using the template below. No special title is required, but the application must be easy to read. Your application will be reviewed as soon as a Manager is available. Upon acceptance, you will be given Builder or Dungeon Master powers and your evaluation period starts. Evaluation Timeline: Your evaluation will last one month, during which people may give feedback about your events to an Event Manager. You are expected to make an attempt at your duties within one week. Inform an Event Manager if real life circumstances prevent this. If applying for Dungeon Master, you will occasionally be checked on during this period and taught the basic customs of being a DM. At the end of your evaluation, a decision will be made based on the Event Manager's observations and any feedback they may have received. THE CREATIVE TEAM APPLICATION TEMPLATE AFTER THE APPLICATION PROCESS After you have been approved as a member of the Creative Team, you will need to remain somewhat active on the server to keep your rank. Even attempting to host an event counts as being active. You're also expected to spend your time helping other characters progress. For more information, please check the Paragon Rules' section dedicated to Dungeon Masters and Builders. Good luck in your Application! Kind Regards, Paragon Administration.
  13. The following gossip can be heard in settlements across Eastern Kingdoms: [==============================================================================================] With the Argent Crusade's critical losses in the disastrous 1st Battle of the Broken Shore, where Highlord Fordring himself was a casualty of war, a massive recruitment project was initiated soon after, which saw a considerable number of Azerothians from many races and different nationalities traveling to the lands of Lordaeron, specifically Hearthglen and Light's Hope Chapel, in order to begin their path as Argent Crusaders. After such influx of people joining the Argent lines, the high command of the Crusade endeavoured a rather significant expansion in their business across the Plaguelands. It is said that the farmlands north of Andorhal are once more producing at full speed, though not as plentiful as it once were before the Third War. Regardless of the soil's recent recuperation, it is said that the production will be much helpful in maintaining the Crusaders -- whom until recently depended mostly on donations and patronage. As such, Felstone Field and Dalson's Farm are now firmly under Argent control. Many refugees from Lordaeron who were living in the Alliance lands to the south have flocked to these lands once more, believing in the protection provided by the Argent Crusade to be safety enough for them to farm the lordaeronian soil once more. Where once an agent of the Cult of the Damned operated, Malicia's Outpost has been turned into an Argent fort under command of Icecrown veteran Captain Grondel. It was informed that the fort is meant to provide cover in the otherwise untamed eastern region of the Western Plaguelands, providing safe travels to caravans and Argent detachments coming and going from the Eastern Plaguelands. Furthermore, the once last bastion of humanity in Lordaeron, Tyr's Hand, is said to be bustling with activity. Convoys rich with goods of animal and natural resources, apples, grapes, milk, leather and meat, arrive all over the Argent bases across Lordaeron. The Brotherhood of the Light, supported by champions, have done a commendable job in removing the undead agents dubbed as 'the Risen' from the sacred city during the harsh times of the Cataclysm. Crusade Commander Korfax, Champion of the Light, has been appointed as military commander of the Argent forces stationed in Tyr's Hand. Archmage Angela Dosantos was appointed to head scholastic pursuits in the city, while leadership of the settlement itself was given to Crusader Lord Latinga, a veteran from Zul'Drak. The Tyr's Hand Cathedral (once known as 'Scarlet Bastion'), a magnificent temple of the Holy Light that can easily compete with the Cathedral of Light from Stormwind City, was entrusted to High Cleric Gregorios, a man of long term service to the Holy Light. The Church of the Holy Light has expressed interest in assuming control over the Tyr's Hand Cathedral via one of their Bishops, but the Brotherhood of the Light has 'ignored' their pleas, stating that pilgrimage of all those who believe in the benevolence of the Holy Light are welcome to do so in Tyr's Hand, though the Argent religious sect will oversee all religious activities within the sacred city. Lord Maxwell Tyrosus (supposedly de facto leader of the Crusade) has proudly acknowledged the progress of the Crusade throughout the battered Kingdom of Lordaeron, stating that the Crusade's work so far is motive of pride and celebration as they work tirelessly to undo the terrible damage caused by the Scourge, offering his deep thanks to the Cenarion Circle in their support and the champions of Azeroth. Still, he also stated that, while much has been achieved already, there is much more work to be done in the Plaguelands.

  14. THE STORMWIND HOUSE OF NOBLES - PUBLIC NEWS AND UPDATES THREAD This thread's purpose is to keep track of important information of public nature from the House of Nobles and its members, which may come from decisions and actions taken by the House's Sessions or by our current player nobles in the community. It also includes the time the House tends to meet. Please bear in mind that the time listed here isn't mandatory and is subject for changes as it goes. After all, our roleplayers hail from a wide variation of OOC locations, so not all of them may be present and sometimes we don't have enough players to warrant a House of Nobles Session happening. For the list of nobles and the information pertaining their respective Houses, lands and relations formerly represented in this thread's predecessor, check this. ||=========================================================================|| House of Nobles Meetings Usual DMs: Nathaniel Usual Days: Weekends (Saturday/Sunday) Starting Hours: 14:00/15:00 Server Time The date and hour of the meetings may be subject of change in the event that the roleplayers beseech a different Dungeon Master/Moderator to portray the King of Stormwind in case the Session demands his presence. In case changes happen to the schedule, the proper channels will be notified of such modifications. ||=========================================================================|| Participation in the Meetings Only the titled nobles or their representatives in the event that they can't be present due to IC/OOC reasons are allowed to weigh in on the topics discussed in the House of Nobles. In the event that the noble can't show up, we kindly request that you inform the respective DM so that the player meant to represent them officially may be allowed to come and weigh in on the Sessions. Non-nobles wishing to participate and watch ICly are allowed to as long as they're at least associated to the Player nobles in the session or are acting as their escort, advisor, or any sort of official representation, from the nobles or the kingdom. Examples: military officers, important businessmen, religious authorities, important civil servants, etc. ||=========================================================================|| OOC Considerations We kindly request that the posts in this thread be constructive and relative to its purpose. Most of its content is logically meant to be information pertaining the nobility of Stormwind ICly. Formal petitions to the King related to the Kingdom of Stormwind can also be posted in this thread and, depending on their weight, it may become a topic for the House of Nobles. So please keep it on topic. Shitposting and improper content will be removed. ||=========================================================================|| For more information regarding the House of Nobles, we suggest taking a peek at the current Lore Clarification pertaining the topic that can be found here.
