The blood of the innocent shall not fall upon the Order of the Eternal Blade.
You shall respect and honor your superiors, as they have earned their ranks within the Order. In return, they will guide and honor those who follow them.
You shall not desecrate any Moonwell or hallowed site of our people.
We are the children of Elune. We will honor Her and all of Her followers accordingly.
God-mode, Meta-gaming, & Power play
While you carry the guild name as a member, you are expected to roleplay with integrity. Everything you do reflects back onto Dor'Serrar's membership as a whole. Do not attempt to control others' characters, backstories, or anything not yours, without prior consent given.
This includes using prior knowledge learned through out-of-character discussion (such as reading a forum thread or conversation in guild chat) and injuring or out-right killing another character. Everything requires consent.
Nobody is invincible (except a certain horse, and even he died at one point). God-mode behavior is not tolerated.
Drama, Trolling, & Bullying
In-Character drama can be great fun that can help develop your characters and stories. Out-of-Character drama causes nothing but problems. Please leave your out-of-character drama out of the guild. Once you've joined the guild, we expect you to behave cordially OOC – even to people you have prior tension with. In-Character, you are free to be a grumpy, xenophobic stick in the mud if your character happens to be so!
Trolling, bullying, fighting, sexual or racial discrimination, and any other negative behavior is not tolerated. This includes the guild chat, guild channels, and discord (/guild, communication stones, etc.), not just the public channels of the game (/say, /emote, etc.).
Bad-mouthing, trash-talking, and maliciously attacking other players or guilds because of personal gripes is not tolerated. Just because you don't like someone or another group does not give you free rein to treat people poorly.
In the event something like this does occur, you must immediately contact an Officer to deescalate the situation. All parties involved must cease the topic at hand until a solution can be reached.
The Line Between IC & OOC
IC and OOC is a line every successful roleplayer must Master. Your character’s emotions and actions are not yours nor should they be. That line is essential. Without that line, it’s a fast road to unwanted behavior and hurt feelings. If you don’t know how to do this, don’t be afraid to say so. We have guild members that are willing to teach you the detached approach that may help you out. It takes time, patience, and discipline but anyone can learn to do it. If the story gets intense and you need to step back, it’s completely okay to ask OOC for a pause or to dip out of the roleplay for a break.
When applying to the guild, the application will ask if you've read this thread. Please put the word "Elune" somewhere in your response, as this allows us to tell if you've actually taken the time to skim through this all.
New members to the guild have one month to attend an event or they will be removed from the guild. We are not an alt parking service while your main plays in another guild. We expect attendance to affirm you are still interested in Dor'Serrar and its members. Upon joining us you will be told that attendance is a requirement, we are a medium to heavy RP guild and expect when you join that you understand this fact.
Older members who have been with us for some time will know that they are expected to attend events, at least show an effort to be active. If you are planning a long hiatus or real-life happens, that’s completely understandable. We simply ask that you please inform us so your character or characters are not removed.
Fail to inform us and you will find yourself guildless.
Not Safe for Work (E.g. ERP, Goldshire, etc.)
NSFW behavior and roleplay is not to be displayed in public. This includes posting adult-themed information in your roleplay add-on information (artwork, F-lists, etc.) and ERPing in public. Overly sexualized physical descriptions posted in your RP add-on is not allowed.
Goldshire is absolutely forbidden to be entered. If you are found to be frequenting Goldshire to partake or even just watch or troll the players there, you will be removed from the guild.
Flying through Elwynn Forest in order to reach another destination is completely fine, as is dueling at the front gates, but no hanging out in Goldshire at all while wearing Dor'Serrar's guild tag and tabard.
The reason for these specific rules and exclusions is to maintain the guild's reputation. What you do on your own personal, private time is your own business. We only require that you do not engage in this type of behavior in public under the banner of Dor'Serrar.
Level Requirements & Alts
Players must be at least level 20 to join, Allied Races 40, Death Knights 70, Demon Hunters 110. Alts of current guild members do not apply to this rule. We expect you to level your character in order to participate in events located in high level zones. There are plenty of people in the guild that’d be willing and able to help you level your character, just ask!
