Reading For Prospective Grim

Greetings and welcome from the players of the Grim.  If you are reading this, you are either a casual observer or interested party in joining The Grim.

Who Are The Grim?

The Grim are a role-playing guild whose theme is “Peace Through Annihilation.”  It is the Grim’s belief that there are drastic and extreme steps to be taken to see the survival of the Horde through this troubled and war-torn world, and it is the Grim’s actions that will see them through.  The leaders of the Horde are not weak, they are just held back from doing what is necessary to survive.

Some would consider our actions evil, and they would be correct.  There is nothing the Grim will not do to see our objectives achieved, though we are not a band of blood-thirsty killers that do everything on a whim.  Each Grim follows one document, the Mandate, that serves to guide all members to their goals.  The Mandate is a living document, so that when threats both rise and fall, the Grim know and understand what we have to do to see the continued survival and success of the Horde and the guild.

The Grim are a guild of action; a collection of role-players that want to play the game.  While we strive to excel in both PvE and PvP content; we are a role-playing guild first.  When members of both factions, Horde and Alliance, see and interact with a Grim character; they will know and understand that person is both in character and ready to play hardball.  The Grim is not for people who want to sit around and sip tea all day.

We could be for you if:

  • You enjoy role playing AND
  • Your character is evil, or at least very pissed off AND
  • You enjoy raiding AND/OR player-vs-player combat

If you are a role player who enjoys playing the game – that is PVPing and doing end game content – we could be for you.

We are not for you if:

  • You do not enjoy role playing OR
  • You want to ‘work things out’ with the Alliance OR
  • You want to sit around and focus your RP on relationship drama, etc. OR
  • You do not enjoy raiding AND/OR player-vs-player combat

If you are looking for a guild that is strictly PVP or raiding with no in-character context, or just want to sit in the pub and bemoan the murder of your mother by the Alliance, then we are not for you.

The Grim do not accept non-standard Horde races such as dragons, ogres, or arakkoa. Applicants are expected to adhere to the playable races (orc, troll, forsaken, etc), though specific distinctions are permitted. These would include mountain trolls versus forest trolls, Mag’har orcs versus greenskins, and other minor cosmetic differences.

We believe in action, not inaction. In order to be considered for The Grim, please fill out an application and post a letter of introduction on our “Letters to The Grim” forum.
