“ The Undercouncil has risen through the ashes of the Fourth War, seeking retribution for the Forsaken and representation of the Undead. To bring about reform and change amongst the wider undead population, a Council has been formed to represent the diverse and complex people that encompass the state of undeath. And they are seeking representatives from all corners of Azeroth.”
A new guild conceived by a group of roleplayers on Moon Guard who missed the aesthetic and story of an undead focused RP group. The Undercouncil seeks to revitalize the Undead RP community; therefore, they also seek to improve the quality of Roleplay in the Horde server-wide.
Whereas other guilds have a general meeting format of “Welcome back, here is a debrief of our previous meeting, and here is what we plan to do this month for our campaign,” The Undercouncil will be taking a different approach to the format of meetings.
The High Kindlers (Officers) and the Guildmaster will deliberate and plan events and campaigns to introduce to the guild in a Council based, Robert’s Rules Lite group. All inducted members to the Council will represent not just themselves, but entire groups and factions created within the Council. This will enable a more complex and detailed campaign structure, as the missions presented will not have a goal deigned by the planner of the events; rather, the Council will decide the goal. Will the war criminal face execution, fair trial, or be utilized as a tool by the Council? These questions will not only be answered by the Council, but formed by it as well. Though some events will have obvious militaristic, covert, diplomatic, or social goals, they can be accomplished in an infinite number of ways based entirely on a roleplayer’s creativity.
The Council will also be given the opportunity to present their own ideas (with prior OOC approval by the Officers and GM) or to expand the story of the Council as an ongoing narrative. As Councilors participate more as members of the Guild, they will be given higher rank and power to their votes, as their experience would signal that they hold greater sway in the Council. A Councilor can even grow to Chair their own Committee or Group that represents a different arm of the Guild, whether they are granted such a title or create a Group to preside over will be open ended to the events that unfold during council meetings.
The guild is not entirely exclusive to characters of the Undead race, nor are their meetings. Dark Rangers, Abominations capable of communication, and even Death Knights are either welcome to join the guild or participate at some level.
The Watchers are the muscled arm of the Guild, and are made up of all sorts from mercenaries to Deathguards. They will not have any say in political Council meetings, but will be given their own opportunities to expand the narrative of the Council’s will. This complex arm will be expanded upon to interested parties, though they must contact Jaydela (the Guildmaster) or any officers directly as of posting this advertisement for information.
During the General Council meetings, which include all potential and current members of the Council, the public will be able to enter proceedings and speak, present, or request something to the Council during an allotted period, as well as witness the inner workings of Forsaken politics as they grow and develop from the din created by the loss of a militaristic monarch.
Quality is our Mission & Goal
The Guild’s first priority is to foster quality roleplay, and that quality will be shown by those that represent the guild who have a commitment to not only creating a mature roleplaying environment that others enjoy, but one that they themselves enjoy.
Any and all requesting to have more information regarding the guild need only ask, and applications are always open to join and become a Councilor or a Watcher.
Note: To be accepted as a full fledged member of the guild, the player’s character must be at least level 20 (with exceptions being made with the new level change). To be inducted as a member and participate as a character in the wider narrative, a short backstory and minor personal character check will have to be approved by an Officer or the GM at their discretion.
