Welcome, to the Forum Thread for the <Chronicles of Lordaeron> Guild.
Chronicles of Lordaeron is a small, tight knit RPG Guild that focuses on a player guided, Canon Lore World of Warcraft experience, set in the Vanilla Time Period of World of Warcraft (Year 25), focusing on the War in the Plaguelands, and the factions influencing it, such as;
The Argent Dawn, Scarlet Crusade, The Alliance, The Horde and the Scourge.
The Guild features members from various timezones, but in order to actually participate in our hosts, you must, at the very least be able to Roleplay between the times of 14:00 (2PM) Server Time and 16:00 (4pm) Server Time, on a Saturday and sometimes Sundays.
Server Time is set to Berlin Time, so you can google Berlin time to see if that is acceptable for you, or you can click the clock ingame to view the current realm (server) time as you play.
These times are not fixed, and our hosts can start sooner or later depending on how many players we can get to attend.
PLEASE stop here and check those times are acceptable, as it is very rare for us to conduct events outside of those times. If Chronicles contained more staff, more timezones could be explored, but currently you will NOT be able to participate in this guild if the times do not work for you.
The story and characters of Chronicles stick to Canon Lore in most cases, however an expansive amount of extended lore has been added to the mix, to keep the story of the phase interesting and mysterious for those few hardcore who may be very well versed in the existing lore.
IF lore written by myself and not Blizzard is an issue for you, please do not make a fuss of it later on if you choose to sign on. This has been your warning, and although I take great care in expanding the lore in an immersive, entertaining and respectful manner, I am not Chris Metzen and I am not perfect.
The Story focuses on the Vanilla era of WoW, specifically the last 6 months of Year 25 ADP (After Dark Portal). Naxxramas is about, the Argent Dawn is still quite small.
In the Guild, many factions are playable, each with their own story to explore and uncover with your fellow players. Keep in mind however, that as new recruits, you will only have access to the Argent Dawn story, with the others becoming available when you reach a level of trust with the Guild.
These Factions include the Argent Dawn, Scarlet Crusade and Forsaken. The Lordaeronic faction on the very left is more of a sub-faction and is part of the extended lore, not canon.
Factions can limit what races and classes you can play, as each faction has their own standard of what is acceptable to them culturally as well as in lore.
During Roleplay, we use an RPG System of our own design to keep the outcomes of actions, random but fair. This just means that when you emote, you have to roll a value, and depending on the outcome, your emote succeeds or fails. The system has been developed over many years but isn't perfect.
Some stats include:
HP - Health Points
AP - Strength & Strength Skills Points
SP - Speed & Speed Skills Points
IP - Intelligence Points
MP - Magic Points (or Mana Points)
It strives to both reward player progression, with successful emotes being more likely the better your character is, but also fair and enjoyable.
If you want to learn about the system in full, you can read the Beginners Guide linked later in the Thread.
Recruiting will have two stages, OOC and IC. During the IC Phase your character needs to be Icly at either Orgrimmar (Horde) or Stormwind (Alliance)
