-We are a
We love the
MMO World of Warcraft and all it has to offer.
We encourage our members to group together for instances, questing, dailies
and pvp but we are first and foremost a role-play guild. Members who don't enjoy running instances or
pvp'ing will be able to find a comfortable place to live within The Iron Rose.
However a person who doesn't enjoy role-play and has problems staying in
character should not join The Iron Rose.
- We RP a Feudal
members of the Iron Rose can simply enjoy the benefits of being in an RP guild
or play a more active role in the story line of The Iron Rose. Instead of creating traditional "Officer
Ranks" we've created the rank of Baron/Baroness and Prince/Princess.
Members looking to advance in the guild can pledge their skills as a knight,
lead citizens by staking a claim in their favorite Barony (i.e. zone) or rule
over one of the Principalities (i.e. continents) of Azeroth. Eventually our guild will consist of eight
Principalities each with their own culture offering new members a wide variety
of game play experiences from raiding to PVP to dark and shadowy intrigue.

We have made
a decision to forgo an OOC channel and voice communication tools such as
Ventrilo. It's been our experience that these
eventually erode role-play and lead to OOC drama. Guild chat is used as a tool to enhance
role-play and is in character. OOC
conversations should be held in whispers or private party chat. If an OOC comment is needed in guild chat it
should be put in ((brackets)). In addition to the RP that happens in guild chat,
we also have a guild-only channel where guild members can simulate the actions
of their characters in a guild hall environment for a more traditional
"virtual RP" experience.

that our hearthstones double as communication devices. If you imagine your
character talking over a walkie-talkie you will be very close to understanding
how to RP your character's interactions in guild chat. Pressing the "talk" button and
speaking into your hearthstone transmits
your voice to all guild members (i.e. guild chat). Pressing the "private" button and
speaking into it will send the message to just one person (i.e. a whisper). There's also an on/off button for privacy.
