[PCU] Troll Military RP - Painted Shields 🛡

They emerged from the undergrowth, each one a dizzying burst of colour in the darkness of the jungle. Leering faces, strange and chaotic scenes of long-forgotten battles and intricate murals dedicated to the profane loa glared out from the hardened wood of the shields.

More like a phalanx of red-plumed golems than the common trollish rabble, the column came to a halt and stood in silence, as if to give their foes either a moment to make their peace or at least enjoy the artistry of the cohort…

Hello gamers,

The Seventh Rastari Cohort - or the Painted Shields as they are more commonly known - is recruiting! So named after their group’s traditions of painting their shields, the cohort now marches in the name of the Horde, gifted as aid to the Saurfang Legion by a powerful Zanchuli associate hoping to gain yet more power in the chaos that follows the union between the Horde and the Empire.

This guild’s theme will revolve around soldiers of an once-dominant empire struggling against its decline and fighting for a new golden age for the trollish people, even if it means working with those that may have once been so far beneath them. Dressed in beaten golden and crested in opulent plumes, the imperial soldiers of the Golden Throne march out to show Azeroth just why their people once held dominion over much of the known world…

The main audience of the guild is - of course - Zandalari characters. Despite the name shield use isn’t essential - although ideally we will have a lot of characters that can use the iconic painted shields, maybe you want to play a guy who hangs his shield up in his hut and uses magic / a big spear etc

We will also be recruiting auxiliaries of all surviving troll tribes - with the Horde-loyal tribes of Darkspear, Revantusk and Shatterspear receiving generous wages and (at least officially) equality and respect from their Zandalari comrades. As the cohort grows more and more intergrated with the Horde and the war continues to take a toll, it is expected these auxilliaries will one day obtain the same ranks & privileges as true Zandalari characters (as well as ceremonial citizenship in the Golden City itself)

The disgraced tribes that dishonoured the Golden City by standing with the traitorous Zul in his battles against the Horde and even worse still losing may join but can expect to be treated as second-class soldiers, expendable and underpaid. These lowly creatures will be left outside of the gates of major Horde cities to camp in the dirt so as not to offend the new imperial allies with their filthy ways

If you’re interested, you can PM Beniboi, Hyro, Akuh for info / to join up

The Seventh Rastari Cohort will prepare for the latest RP-PVP coming this Friday by embarking on a little training exercise to test their will and wit against the wintery terrain… in Winterspring!

Is that a curiosity I sense? Well you can follow the link below to check out the campaign. Horde sign ups are still open! I mean it’s not like you got any other campaign to attend lately.

Are you a troll of your favourite tribe or perhaps a proud Zandalari? Do RP-PVP the right way and fight alongside fellow troll shills - namely the Painted Shields!

After the RP-PVP, we settled down in the good old swing of things with our own guild events and some times, we’ve joined forces with our fellow Stygian Legionnaires.

Tonight, the Stygian Legion and others involved in the RP-PVP in Storm Peaks shall be rewarded with prestigious medals!

With that out of the way, the Painted Shields continues on and we are always looking for more Zandalari and all troll kind to stand with us for our great queen Talanji.

Tonight the Cohort will depart to Vol’dun to visit the Shrine of Akunda, but also kill some Alliance scum along the way who wish to interfere with Horde efforts there!

We had a pretty neato ‘pilgrimage’ to the temple of Akunda in Vol’dun and the place itself is just lovely at night.

This week, we’ve made plenty of time to do some hardcore recruitment before we continue with more guild events on Friday and Saturday.

This more than a fine moment to catch us in Orgrimmar the Valley of Honor to sign up!

The cohort successfully return from Kul’tiras after their expedition there was successful. Taking the fight to the Alliance and Kul’tiran guard and managing to pillage and sack the town for supplies, loot and trophies. Though the tally to settle the score for Rastakhan’s death is not fulfilled yet!

Have had some great interactions with a couple of members from Painted Shields so far. This night, Ronin got to join them for a wholesome storytelling session in Razor Hill. Thanks guys!
