Disclaimer: We are not KTMC from Moon Guard, see Section VII. Guild History.
I. Theme & Guild Basics
We RP a company of Marines from the Fifth Fleet of Kul Tiras. Forward deployed out of Menethil Harbor in the Wetlands and Tiragarde Keep in Durotar - the Marines and the civilian staff of the Proudmoore Naval Academy campus at Camp Menethil are the sole commitment from the Proudmoore Admiralty to the mainland after Kul Tiras left the Alliance.
#1 Focus: RP-WPvP & Community Events
#2 Focus: Dungeons & Raiding
II. RP Goals & Culture
In an effort to thwart threats to Kul Tiras before they can reach our shores, the Marines are commited to the dismantling of the Horde as a world power, complete extermination of the Orcs as an invasive parasitic species, restoration of the Eastern Kingdoms to it’s rightful peoples, and a return to the world order which existed prior to the Orc invasion of the First War.
The following are prominent in KTM RP:
- Fervent nationalism for Kul Tiras.
- Naval culture with strict martial discipline.
- Violently xenophobic against the Horde.
- Adherence to the Marine Code of Honor.
III. Structure & Divisons
Kul Tiras Marines is structured into several divisions to highlight particular themes that we incorporate into our RP.
Fifth Fleet of Kul Tiras
Consisting of the battleship KTS Silver Serpent, the destroyer esorts KTS Twinkling Star and KTS Blackhawk, the bulk of the guild consists of the main force deployed in ground operations as the 5th Marine Expeditionary Unit.
Based in Menethil Harbor, Camp Menethil administers various facilities throughout Menethil Harbor and hosts an annex to the Proudmoore Naval Academy where we train new Marines from both Kul Tiras and refugees from the mainland.
Both everywhere and nowhere, BI:6 is analogous with Stormwind’s SI:7 and serves as the intelligence gathering service of Kul Tiras. Those seeking to work in the intelligence field best be prepared for some of the most uneasy and morally questionable actions they will ever undertake in service or life.
Marine Corps of Engineers
A contingent of gnome scientists, engineers, tinkers and submariners are now recognized as the Marine Corps of Engineers, having brought their technological and industrial know-how to Kul Tiras after the Second War.
IV. Tiragarde Keep Project
The Tiragarde Keep Project (TKP) is a survival mini-game deep in Horde territory. We summon level 6 characters out to Tiragarde Keep in Durotar to do battle against new Horde in the Orc/Troll starting zone. The force is under orders by the late Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore to hold Tiragarde Keep until the Kul Tiran Fleet is rebuilt to full strength for a final assault against the Orc capital - with the intent of bringing the Greenskin Infestation to an end.
More details on TKP are in a later section below.
V. Recruitment & Bootcamp
We welcome new players without prior RP or PvP experience. Don’t be intimidated by our RP or RP-PvP - we will happily teach you!
New members come in as Cadets of the Proudmoore Naval Academy and undergo an RP’ed Bootcamp campaign at the Proudmoore Academy extension in Menethil Harbor. This is a series of RP and PvP events with instruction on the Marine Code of Honor, Kul Tiras lore, killing Horde, and going over the Kul Tiras Marine Field Manual.
VI. Kul Tiras Marine Code of Honor
Every Marine must swear an oath to Kul Tiras and follow the Code prior to entering boot camp. The Marine Code of Honor is a Marine’s life and duty.
1. Protect the Homeland
2. Serve with Honor
3. No Marine is Left Behind
4. Always Be Prepared
5. Love the Sea
6. Always Follow Orders
VII. Guild History
KTM aims to maintain a friendly, mature and casual gaming experience free of stress and drama. We play to relax and have fun - not to treat it as a second job and we support one-another in that spirit.
Founded in 2004 by members of various Ultima Online RP guilds and is the oldest Kul Tiras-themed RP guild in World of Warcraft. We played during the pre-Vanilla beta and then on the Bleeding Hollow PvP server. We transferred to the Maelstrom RP-PvP realm the first day it launched and remained there until the second half of Legion when we moved to Emerald Dream. We are now also on Grobbulus for Classic and and are recruiting!
