I play on a RP server and run a non military RP guild of Normal-ish non-OP couriers.. Why the hell is it that I can't get more than 6 active players for our awesome events? What's the deal with Military RP and Lordling RP being the only viable form.. Adventure RP is fun.. right?
I think people are slowly beginning to realize that these noble and military RP guilds are getting out of hand, at least on the RP realm I play on.
I have to say though, good on you for breaking the template and going for an adventure RP guild. There definitely aren’t enough of them around.
Starting RP guilds that don’t “fit the norm” of noble and military are difficult to boot up and even more difficult to keep going, but they’re definitely worth the time and effort because it generally attracts role-players of a greater quality eventually.
There was a whole big mess/controversy on the RP realm I play on recently. Noble/Military guilds going as far as bribing with in-game gold to eliminate the competition from the inside. Sick and twisted stuff, really.
I personally have always wanted to be part of an Adventure RP guild where a band of people travel Azeroth saving villages, unearthing lost treasures, breaking curses and being the unsung heroes of the land and doing it all for the sake of adventure without being OP or lore-breakers… perhaps I’ll have that experience one day.
Good luck to you and keep at it, if you’re determined enough you’ll attract the right people and get a hell of a guild going.
