“The strength of the Hand lies in its variety. Different folks from all walks of life, races and goals, combining their different strengths and accomplishing those goals together. Our world is one full of dangers. Demons, cultists, necromancers, slavers, monsters. We are the ones to face the darkest parts of it. To leave the place better, and to grow strong doing so.”-General Anroka Scaleslicer.
“The war is over, but the true battle for Azeroth continues. An Old God is on the loose. The world is full of danger and corruption, ignored for too long while Horde and Alliance were at each other's throats. Old things have awakened and as whispers rise, the darkness’ grip on our world strengthens by the day. Time to roll up our sleeves and do what we do best.”---------------------------------------
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. Our guild chat is Out Of Character, though we have a separate In Character communication network channel. We are loosely divided into 3 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.
What can you expect from our guild?
Though not overwhelmingly so, the Hand of the Titans is one of the older and bigger guilds around. We try our best to operate as a stable and engaging platform for you to enjoy the varied aspects of the game. Our guild tends to run 2 to 4 roleplay events each week for those interested and available, with spontaneous roleplay often occurring between and after such events. We do our best to offer an accepting environment with little drama. Suitable for old and new roleplayers.
What sort of members do we seek?
We seek members who would like to roleplay, would like to be part of an involved group of people, and would enjoy the opportunity to 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. Righteous knight, shrewd bounty hunter, ambitious mercenary, or tomb-diving scholar; all may hear the call to the adventuring life, and seek the benefit of joining a well-connected organization.
For more specific questions about evil or corruptive characters, addons, people new to RP, level requirements, OOC behavior, and other questions, please check out the Frequently Asked Questions section of this thread, further down. Beyond that, tolerance towards people of all genders/orientations/races, adherence to WoW guidelines, RP etiquette and decent grasp of the English language are appreciated. Roleplaying is crafting a fitting place for yourself in this world we all enjoy. As long as you have the willingness to adapt and learn in that pursuit, we are more than happy to support you.
How do you join the guild?

I am always available for questions. I am also always glad to help with your backstory, lore or other advice. We are definitely also always up to cooperation with other guilds. You can also post here if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. This thread could likely use the bumping anyway.
The Rebellion is over. Thanks to Saurfang's actions, the Horde has reunited and the world can shift its focus to other dire threats. The Old God N’Zoth has yet to be found, but many threats are on the rise as his influence is turning the world into a darker and darker place. We are gathering our power, tools and allies, as we strike against these enemies, new and old.
