Hey there, roleplayers!
Templars of the Rose is an RP-PvE guild founded October 3, 2007. We became a multi-game guild in 2013 and play Guild Wars 2, Destiny 2, homegrown D&D and Pathfinder campaigns, Overwatch, Sea of Thieves, Monster Hunter World… the list goes on. We’re nerds. We’re primarily Alliance but have a sister Horde guild, Blood of the Rose , that’s full of alts and advances our WoW storyline. We love WoW roleplay with a dash of Normal/Heroic raiding.
Out-of-Character: About Us
Templars is a close-knit circle of roleplayers from all walks of life. We welcome all roleplay experience types and love to teach people the ropes.
If you’re ever feeling WoW burnout but don’t want to leave your guild, there’s no need to say goodbye. You can hop to another game for a little while and already have a starting point of faces you know.

In-Character: The Story Thus Far
Till Mists of Pandaria, the Rose was neutral toward the Horde-Alliance war, instead rallying against world-ending causes such as the Burning Legion, Scourge, and other global threats. However, with the rise of Garrosh Hellscream and destruction of Theramore (where the Rose’s primary operations were based), the Templars declared war to oust him as warchief. Since the younger Hellscream’s fall, the Rose has again distanced itself from Alliance and Horde skirmishes and found a new home in the Howling Fjord, Northrend. It now rises to battle against the Burning Legion’s tide in the Broken Isles and rally any others to the cause. The Templars are battle-hardened warriors and specialize in front-line wars.
Also neutral, its sister-side Horde guild, Blood of the Rose found itself at odds with Garrosh Hellscream’s aggressive anti-Alliance stances. The order was forced into hiding to avoid Hellscream’s Kor’kron agents rooting out dissent, but many of its members were hunted down during Hellscream’s regime. The survivors aligned themselves with the Darkspear Rebellion led by Vol’jin to oust Hellscream. Even more fell. Following this dark time, the Bloods rose from war’s ashes and laying the foundation of a renewed order. Bonds were rekindled with its Allianceside sister order and the Bloods rose to combat the Legion in the Isles.
Following the defeat of the Legion, the Rose continues to serve in the front lines, intent to unseat Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner, whom they’ve deemed a global threat to Azeroth akin to the Lich King.
We raid with a dedicated in-house team of raiding roleplayers we trained back in Cataclysm. Raiding is part of our overarching guild storyline. Our progression raiding (“Black Watch”) is once weekly on Wednesday nights.
