"Bound through culture, forged by strength and spirituality" ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ One fateful evening, those of the vanguard, the last remnants of the "Horde" gathered atop Grom'Thar Peak. Their purpose? To discuss the future of their people in light of recent events. Those at the peak, including leading figures of the vanguard, spoke of their predicament. Flying the banner of the Horde had only brought them suffering and hardship time and time again. It came to the belief that the image and banner of the Horde had been stained by the actions of others before Bloodfury and his warband on the Island, and thus created a negative view of their people. Having committed much of their resources to facing the great evils of the Isle and receiving nothing in return, they grew tired. Disillusioned. Instead, they decided to unite in culture, rather than the flag they flew from Azeroth. And thus, The Flamespire Clan would come to pass. An independent union of races from the Horde, uniting under culture rather than race, in order to seek peace and safety for their people as a priority. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After establishing the clan, it was through the suggestion of the ex-Warlord, Bloodfury, that the Clan would go back to the Old Ways of the Orcish people. Before the time of Gul'dan and the Legions corruption. These ways, both spiritual and noble, suited most of the races already residing in Grom'Thar. The old ways consisted of ensuring peace for the continuation of their kind, whilst ushering in the spiritual balance of the elements and ancestors. Great hunts would be waged in the jungles of Opej'nor, to show their strength and might, and to seek spirituality from their primal kills. This would not mean weakness, however, for the old ways were some of the most savage and brutal times of all. Warriors fought to the death without hesitation and welcomed the notion of glory on the battlefield. When in the right circumstance. The Flamespire would choose their battles, and their fields, before committing to a foray. Long since their arrival on the shores, the orcs have noticed the elements remain damaged. Restless. The balance shifted. The Flamespire Clan vow to ensure that they pursue the restoration of the elements, before the wars to come. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 'Doldrosh' - Named by the Clan as 'The Heart of the Doldrums' in Orcish, the Doldrosh is the supreme authority of the Flamespire Clan. The Clan moves and acts when they give their order, and is tasked with ensuring the overall vision of the Clan is followed through. They are to uphold the law and culture of their people, and to put their people first above all else. The Doldrosh must show their skill in both martial and spiritual matters, as they are the prime focuses of the Clan. Elder - The spiritual leader of the Clan. The Elder has achieved the highest level of spiritual enlightenment than any other in the Clan, and is considered the upmost authority in these matters. They are to focus primarily on spiritual matters, whether it is the Ancestors or the Elements themselves. Additionally, they are to act as counselors to the lesser clansmen of the Clan, and act as part of the Doldrosh' inner-circle as an advisor of sorts. The Bastion - The military leader of the Clan. The Bastion is tasked with ensuring the defence and protection of the Clans holdings and its people. The Bastion must understand the Clans aims and interests to avert war unless it cannot be avoided, or must be done to avert the destruction of the Clan. Additionally, they train new recruits and oversee their outfitting. The Bastion is also tasked with handling disciplinary proceedings among members of the clans fighters, including disputes of honor. They act as part of the Doldrosh' inner-circle as an advisor also. The Wolfguard - The Wolfguard serve as the Clans elite Honor Guard, tasked with providing increased aid to dire situations. In some cases they also act as the inner-circles personal guard. Whilst they are expected to serve their superiors loyally, they are expected to think for themselves when a situation requires initiative. The Mork'Kar - The bulk of the Clans forces, the Mork'Kar are the shield that protects the lands of the Clan, and the spear that drives through the heart of the enemies. A strong, disciplined unit, they are taught the true meaning of Lok'tar Ogar, and are prepared to put their lives on the line for the sake of their people. Anyone who wishes to fight, whether they be a warrior, marksman or shaman, is expected to join. Clansmen - The civilian populace of the Clan, including those who cannot fight. Whether they are crafters, civillians or gatherers for the Clan, this is where they belong. Associate - Those trusted by the Clan to allow to be closely accompanied within their society, although they hold no official rank or power. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Coming Soon ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Just a refined draft for the Clan, given The Mork'Kar Vanguard has changed into a different concept. Hopefully this can make for some interesting RP and development!
Heroes. What does it mean to you? A hero can be defined in many ways. They can be someone of great admiration, known for noble qualities or outstanding achievements. A hero depends on who the mindset or ideology of that person may be, where others might not see the admirable qualities of that particular person, another may see this clear as the blue sky. In times of desperation, conflict and peace, heroes have always come to aid those who need it, and act as a light in the darkness when all seems dim around them. The Flamespire Clan know many heroes, Thrall, Warchief of the New Horde. Cairne Bloodhoof, Chieftain of the Tauren. Sen'jin, Chieftain of the Darkspear before his son, Vol'jin. In times of great peril on the Doldrums, the Doldrosh has called for a celebration of such heroes. This celebration however, is not strictly tied to the Horde. There are heroes among both the Horde and Alliance, and the world, that are known by all. Broxigar the Red, Bolvar Fordragon, Saurfang the Younger and more who stood not only for their factions, but for Azeroth. All are welcome to the village of Mag'Gol, a growing village of the Flamespire Clan just east of the mountain. In addition to these celebrations, a tournament of sorts shall be held known as the Brawl of Heroes. The rules are as followed: - The Brawl is a fight of strength and martial prowess between two fighters. It is a brawl until the other opponent cannot continue. Armor and weapons are prohibited, and magic is excluded. Only your body may be used to fight fist, feet, teeth and more. - There will be no fighting to the death. If an opponent is knocked unconscious, the fight will end there. Failure to comply will result in immediate disqualification. If it is felt a fight is getting too heated and may result in death, a break shall be issued. - Good sportsmanship shall be given. Each fighter shall give respect to the opposite faction before, during and after the brawl. It is a celebration, and not a means of one-upping another faction. More rules shall be outlined in the future if need be. Additionally, the Doldrosh has sought to reward those of notable placements with the following prizes: 1st Place - A Breastplate from Devon's Library, and one thousand silver, and the title Arena Master. 2nd Place - A Weapon of their choice crafted by Mik'turok (Mats provided by the Clan), and a five hundred silver prize. 3rd Place - A five hundred silver prize. Special Mentions or Notices may be given to those who show respect, honor and showmanship during these games. When the games are concluded, a small feast shall be held to commemorate the victors and sing songs and tales of Heroes past. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ OOC: Where: Mag'Gol (Just east of Grom'Thar). When: Sunday 14th of July 9 PM ST (8 PM BST) Who: Any race or non-hostile faction. (Any infiltrators from hostile forces will be publicly executed in the pit before the or during breaks during the festivities.) GM Assistance: Not entirely. If GM assistance is required I shall speak with them prior just in case. GMs are free to do anything spontaneous though! Combat Guidelines: - The fight will use RPG Checks to determine the fight as it goes on. Physical skills such as Acrobatics, Athletics etc will be used, although most of the combat will be based around Martial Skills with Strength or Dexterity rolls depending on the choice of the fighter. Situational rolls will be asked for by a DM, for example if your character is loosing footing they may be asked to do an Acrobatics check. - Each fighter will be given a set HP pool (to provide a fair way of giving and taking damage). The amount of HP will be determined by your CON Stat. For example if you have 6 CON, you have 6 HP Points. - Damage will be decided as followed; If you fail a defensive roll against an attacking roll, you will loose 1 HP Point. Critical rolls (purples) will cause you to loose 2 HP. The person who reaches 0 HP will be knocked out. Anyone who reaches negative HP (whether they've been critted on 1 HP or the other fighter decides to take things to far, RP is RP ofcourse) will be given injuries dependent on the DM. - Roll orders will be determined by a roll for initiative. A simple 1d20 will decide who goes first. The roll order will go one to one unless a DM pauses the fight to force a situational roll as mentioned above. Anyone wishing to partake in the tournament must contact me on discord or ICly to sign up. That way I can make a roster of who is fighting and a table of the fights. I will also inform you all of how this will be done and carried out shortly!
