Guild Themes & Branches
The Desolate Conclave is a RP guild committed to securing the Forsaken’s place in Azeroth through military, diplomatic and socioeconomic means.
“Glory to the first man to die!” – Forsaken Humor
On the military angle we have the Graveguard. If the Deathguard could be described as the hammer of the Forsaken, then the Graveguard could be considered its scalpel. What they lack in numbers they make up for in armaments, tactics and discipline. Policing protected territory, reinforcing battlefield positions and slipping into enemy territory are all tasks common in the workday of a Graveguard.
Bureau of Diplomacy & Statecraft
“Never hate your enemies. It affects your judgement.” – Emissary Goldfeather
On the diplomatic angle we have the BDS. TDC understands that amicable relations between friend and foe alike are necessary if the Forsaken are to thrive eternally in the living’s world. The BDS, staffed with both Forsaken and living allies proven loyal to TDC’s cause, ensure this through hosting everything from lavish parties to hostage negotiations.
Department of Inhuman Services
“From my heart and from my hand, why don’t people understand, my intentions?” – Apothecary Boingo
On the socioeconomic angle we have the DIS. The Forsaken can do what the living cannot and the DIS aim to capitalize on unique Forsaken abilities. Whether containing an anomalous entity that’s caused autocannibalism in secluded communities, aiding sickly Horde citizens with miracle cures or conducting perilous experiments in one of TDC’s research sites – the DIS shows not only the worth of but the appeal in being undead.
RP Goals & Events
TDC’s mission statement is to create a future for the undead amongst the living. We believe this can best be accomplished through the weakening or destruction of the Alliance, the eradication of hostile organizations such as the Scarlet Onslaught and their sympathizers, the rehabilitation of the Forsaken’s public image, the normalization of undeath as a form of existence and an alternative to mortality, and verifying the exclusive and indispensable role Forsaken have to play in the future of Azeroth.
Onslaught Academy: Onslaught Academy classes drill students on the finer points of warfighting. Classes typically conclude with field exercises.
Seizure & Search: Items, data or persons vital to TDC’s interest have fallen into or are enemy hands. To correct this TDC’s personal will be dispatched to take and hold the relevant area behind enemy lines for a set time period.
Termination Order: TDC does not believe in unnecessary cruelty but we do understand that the harshest measures are sometimes required. In such cases we’ve found murdering everything that breathes, burning what can’t and then blighting it all anyway to be a thorough and effective strategy.
Social RP Events
Governor’s Ball: This event is simply an opportunity for all interested friendly parties to eat, drink and be merry at TDC’s expense.
Free Clinic: The learned apothecaries of TDC offer their services to all unwell Horde citizens free of charge. Horde citizens seeking medical or psychological advice, treatment for maladies, and simple surgeries can visit TDC’s free clinics during hours of operation.
Diplomatic Missions: Though TDC finds the Alliance to be a savage hypocrisy we do try to be better than our enemies. Diplomatic Missions are attempts at negotiating treaties, exchanges and ceasefires by TDC with Alliance organizations still capable of reason.
Roll 20 RP Events
Desolate Detective: With the war effort distracting official resources, TDC has taken it upon itself to ensure measured justice is still dealt out in Horde territory. Join TDC’s personal to investigate thefts, murders and disappearances.
Capture and Contain: Sentient warmachines, living viruses, skulls that compel people to eat their family – all of these are anomalous specimens that were captured and contained by TDC. Join TDC’s personal in rooting out, capturing and containing exciting new hostile phenomena!
Containment Breach: When dealing with anomalous specimens even the most meticulous plans can be rendered futile by unforeseeable factors. Thankfully TDC always has a contingency plan and today it’s you! Join TDC’s personal in beating back a prison break made of nightmares!
Other Guild Activities
In addition to unique TDC events we plan to have regular Mythic+ runs and Rated PVP teams. We also intend to participate with the broader ED RP community in continuing to make this server a unique and creatively fulfilling experience for everyone.
Do you only accept Forsaken characters?
Not at all. There are two specific ranks for non-undead in TDC. Advisor, an enlisted rank for those who wish to RP as an attaché and Emissary, an officer rank, who’s responsibilities are detailed above in the BDS branch description. Additionally, Death Knights and those RPing an undead through a different race, i.e. a BElf Hunter as a Dark Ranger or NBelf Shadow Priest as a Banshee, are more than welcome.
Is TDC Evil?
We’d describe it as generally neutral. Personally I’ve a Chaotic Good Priest, Lawful Evil Monk and two toons in between that I think fit perfectly with TDC’s RP. By design we’ve tried to make TDC a place where everyone can belong in one capacity or another.
I’m new to Forsaken RP or RP in general, is TDC a good place for me?
Absolutely. We’ve a lot of experience with RP and undead RP specifically. We are more than happy to help newcomers and veterans alike in creating a fun and memorable character.
Is RP required?
Technically no. If it just sounds neat to hit a RBG or Mythic+ with an all or mostly Forsaken player group and that’s why you’re interested that’s fine with us. But the majority of planned activity is RP related so if that doesn’t interest you whatsoever then there’s probably different guilds you’d enjoy more.
Outside of RP, what’s TDC’s main focus?
Whatever the guild’s player base shows the most interest in, really. Personally as GM I enjoy PVP the most in terms of gameplay and will push for that. But I’m becoming PvE literate as of late and will work to create whatever content the guild most desires.
What is TDC’s opinion on The Banshee Queen?
Complicated. Many of TDC’s leaders are first generation Forsaken and were liberated from Scourge slavery by the Dark Lady’s rebellion. As thus she has the respect and loyalty of many of TDC’s personal. With that being said Slyvanas Windrunner is ███████████████████████████████████ ██████████████████████████████████████████████████ ████████████████████████████████████████████████████████ the rightful Warchief of the Horde, the command of which TDC will always respect.
