“We live in a world with great threats. Azeroth is in danger of corruption and destruction. The demonic hordes of the Burning Legion. The deep-seeded corruption and machinations of the Old Gods. Threats and forces in the world that would slay or enslave us. There once existed safeguards and guardians to shield us from the tides of darkness, but the safety of this world lies now in mortal hands. The need remains to stand ready and shield our people and our world from any threat. In this new age, the Hand of the Titans fights to remove what corruption lingers on this world, and secure a future for our people. To stand with the Hand now means to stand vigilant within the Horde, to deal with threats to the inhabitants of Azeroth, wherever they may emerge. For the Horde!"-Champion Anroka Scaleslicer.
“The Burning Legion, has been defeated. The impossible has been accomplished. But our world lies broken, and with new and old threats exposed. We have not been afforded time to lick our wounds. While Azeroth bleeds, and much remains to be done to secure out lands, the Horde and Alliance have delved back into war. In the wake of Darnassus burning and the loss of Undercity, the future of the Horde, and what it means to march under that banner, is at stake. With new lands, new threats and new allies drawing our attention, and the survival of Azeroth at stake, there is no shortage of things to fight against. Or fight for.”----------------------------------------------
How are we set up?
We are a RP guild first and foremost. The order is led by Anroka, supported by a team of Officers. We have all eight guild bank tabs. Our guild chat is Out Of Character. Officers chat /o is open to all and used as In Character communication channel. We are loosely divided into four factions within the guild, based on the primary expertise of members. We are not a military order with very strict discipline, but we do have a command structure. We count many groups as allies and try to be an active part of the community. Roleplay-wise we are best described as an adventuring guild, with wide connections, and affiliations with many other factions. Primarily the Horde, but also many neutral ones.
“So what is the goal of the Hand of the Titans? In this new age, the task now falls to the mortal races to step up and take up the role as guardians of the world of Azeroth, the gift of the Titans. As the cult of the Twilight Hammer seeks to undo all of creation, we seek to preserve it.”
What can you expect from our guild?
Out Of Character we are a connected and social group of friendly people. In Character we are a group united in loyalty, overlapping goals and usefulness to each other. We are a guild dedicated to offering RP in great varieties of genre, PvE, events, RP combat and social activities. We are well established, with an active player base. We often run old content.
Overall, the goal is to provide a good environment for our players; a helpful basis from which to explore the aspects of the game, alone and as a group. While some of our events and storylines are within the guild alone, we strive to be connected with the rest of the server when we can; participating in, and sometimes running, server-wide events.
“We are enemies of corruption, and look to the Creators for wisdom and a path to follow. We seek to preserve the beautiful world of Azeroth. Our goal is to oppose the agents of corruption where we can, and to grow strong doing so.”
What sort of members do we seek?
We seek members who would like to RP, want to be part of an involved group of people and would enjoy the opportunity join a guild such as ours. We’re open to all races and classes, in principle. It’s all about how you handle your character. There are a million reasons why anyone might seek to join the Hand. Whether you are a powerful demonslayer, a scholar of history, a concerned grunt or magister, or a mercenary looking to make a buck fighting for a good cause, most will find they have goals overlapping with ours, especially in these times of conflict that threatens us all.
Evil characters are allowed within our guild, especially if they are not open with such intentions, but if your usual activities include corrupting citizens in the streets or feasting on the souls of the innocent, our guild is not the place for you. Out of character, tolerance towards people of all genders/orientations/races, adherence to WoW guidelines, RP etiquette and decent grasp of the English language are appreciated. "i c4n haz Gild plox?"-people need not apply. Much knowledge of WoW lore isn't required, as long as you are adaptable and keep in mind that your fellow members and their storylines will involve it to a decent extent. If you would like some aid in working out your character, we would be happy to give you advice. Experienced roleplayers are always welcome, but those new to it are very welcome too. As long as you have the willingness to get learn, we are more than happy to support you.
“What sort of people do we seek? Ours is a varied group. People from all walks of life may take up our banner and stand by us. Though heroes wielding blades of righteousness are welcome, an assassin or mercenary may be equally motivated to strike a blow to those who threaten this world. A shrewd politician or a tailor that enjoys gathering rumors could prove as advantageous to furthering our goals as a powerful spellcaster or an explorer that seeks relics of the Titans. Purity is not a perquisite for joining us, for one cannot change one’s past, just a willingness to stand against those who would spread corruption and destruction.”
How do you join the guild?
We are selective about who we let into our ranks. We like to be sure that people interested in joining us will fit well with our people, characters and guild aims. As said above; many will. In reading this thread you’ve taken the first step. The next step will be to arrange an IC interview. You can whisper Anroka, Gosa, Asperia, Caerule, Xyra, Arctius or Zajara(-Moonglade) to arrange an interview or encounter, so that we can see if ours is the guild for you. If I am not online, Nlaea can help you with information and helping me to get in touch with you later. Typing the command "/who Hand of the Titans" will give you a list of who of the guild is online. You can also post here if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. This thread could likely use the bumping anyway.
We currently have a minimum level 20 requirement for various reasons, please keep this in mind. If you need help on your backstory or lore, we're always available for advice, and if you seek cooperation with our guild instead of membership, we're always open for that as well.
We had amazing times during Legion, and have had time to explore adventures of our own creation while we waited for the Battle for Azeroth, but it is finally here. With it have come questions of where we stand in this changed and warring world.
Zandalar and Kul Tiras await as ancient kingdoms where trouble has been brewing for far too long. With new adventures, foes, challenges, power and allies to await us. The coming months we are likely to see much adventure there. Though we won't forget about the rest of Azeroth. Much darkness has grown while the world had its eyes to the skies to face the Burning Legion.
See you on Azeroth!
