Flywheel Mahoney kneeled at Varok Saurfang’s grave in Nagrand, a small, round rock clutched in her tiny hand. Through gritted teeth, the goblin spoke resolutely and with purpose.
“The Horde were decimated, broken, and betrayed by those we trusted. You stood alone against Sylvanas Windrunner, as powerful as she had become. Even when it seemed hopeless, you fought for what you believed in! A united Horde. A Horde with honor. [A shuddered pause.] Your death was not in vain, Saurfang.”
“We will pick up these broken pieces and rebuild the Horde, in honor of your memory. Hope cannot be killed, not this day. Down to our last breaths, we will fight to make the Horde strong again.”
Opening her palm, the goblin gazed upon the stone. It had been brought to this place from the beaches of Bladefist Bay. She had etched the symbol of the Horde onto it, and filled it with red pigment. Flywheel gently lay the stone upon the mound and rose to her feet.
In a way, the story of Saurfang’s sacrifice and the revolution of the Horde echoes the rebuilding of MG Horde. It is for this reason that I have chosen this war hero as inspiration for us all. It represents renewal and rebirth from a place of hopelessness. For years, MG Horde has struggled as our numbers dwindled, as others made jokes about us, and ridiculed our faction because we are an easy target. The metaphorical dog was so wounded, it couldn’t even bite the hand that beat it down. We will -never- go back there.
We do not have one leader, but many. Strong, capable, and resilient players and guild masters each leading their own armies. And to those that have no guild, you are our mercenaries, our paid soliders for whatever price you set. MG Horde needs you all. We will rebuild.
It doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, or who you are or were in a previous life. Leave your baggage at the door. None of it matters. Escape the drama. We accept you. We NEED you. Fight for us.
What are the key indicators that MG Horde is making progress?
We hope to increase the amount of walk-up RP around the Valley of Honor, and slowly extend it from the Wyvern’s Tail. Not just at peak hours, but spreading to other times too.
This thread is an ideal place to share your experiences of RP on MG Horde. Let us know what you think, and how we can improve.
Increased advertizing from Horde guilds, making themselves more available and easier to find. This should include more banners and interaction in RP hubs, as well as more forum threads.

We need more written guides to help newcomers to MG Horde. A kind of a guidebook to learn about RP etiquette, general atmosphere. I have started compiling some racial guides, but we need something a bit more basic. Work in progress (WIP!)
Horde roleplay: a lore guide for beginners
This is a new direction for MG Horde. I’ve come to realise that my previous thread “LF Alliance to re-roll to Horde” has become outdated. MG Horde now has the capacity and character to stand on its own. MG Horde doesn’t need a splint anymore; it needs to support itself. MG Horde is a small, tight-knit, high quality, low drama community that is looking to grow. To maybe one day return to its former glory.
