Our new guild!

<ASHES OF MAN>

 

 

The exact origins of this warband are the subject of much debate among the members of the Horde, simply because no real time scale was ever given of theirs deeds. However the earliest they appear in any kind of written record is just after the opening of the Dark Portal.

 

In the beginning they were merely a pack of orcs still under the influence of the taint. However there were some that were possessed a little deeper by another force. Hatred. History tells us of the grusome and bloody wars that were fought, but mixed in with the accepted historical records lies the history of the Ashes of Man…

 

During the First War there existed a powerful orc captain know as Thorgax Redgore, an orc with a loathing so intense it is perhaps comparable to that of Garrosh Hellscream. Thorgax would butched humans without end and refused mercy to ANY. Those orcs who followed him thought Thorgax a hero and were always prepared to lay down their lives for him. It was after a sucessful raid on a human settlement that Thorgax’s genocidal hatred took on a new level.

 

With the scent of death surrounding him and the euphoria of victory intoxicating him Thorgax let out a frightening battle shout. He took hold of a nearby human corpse and flung it upon the blazing fire before him. As the smell of searing flesh filled his nostrils the captain breathed deeps the desecration of his enemies and addressed his bretheren orcs:

“These pathetic worms are a disgrace! Even their lifeless corpses mock us. Join me my brothers, eradicate the human vermin!!”

 

Howling in frenzied agreement the band of orcs joined with their captain. Throwing the corpses upon the crackling fire and cursing the human race to extinction. From the base of the fire Thorgax scooped a handful of ash and coated his face with it, once again howling to his orc brothers.

“My brothers cover yourselves with their ashes. Ensure all those that see us know, that we will crush them beneath us!! And wipe their very memory from this planet!!!”

 

Thus began the Ashes of Man. They were the most brutal and vicious of the orcs. Massacring and burning all humans in their path, then charging to the next battle smeared in the ashes of their defiled enemies.

 

After the taint was cleansed stories of Ashes Of Man quietened down but were never lost. As time had passed they had become somewhat secretive and more selective of who was admitted. Years passed and as the Horde became more diverse so did the Ashes of Man. The idea appealed to some of the Trolls and their barbaric beliefs about life. The Forsaken agreed whole undeadheatedly with the ideal of ending the humans existence. Even the gentle Tauren have those among them whose dislike for humans is intense enough to warrant them to seek out membership. Any Blood Elves that join usually do so to be around when the magic essance is seared from the humans flesh and released back into the grand flow of magic. No-one is truely certain why Goblins, who make no profit from these endeavours, join yet they can be counted among their ranks regardless.

 

Within the present day Horde Ashes of Man has once again started to rise up into the public eye. There are even rumours that Warchief Hellscream himself is a member, but this obviously cannot be proved. Although the burning of humans doesn’t occur frequently anymore, primarily because it can’t, there is still a tradition upheld by the guild members. Once a year the members gather atop the cliffs of Durotar under dead of night. Once there they slay a harpie each and together they symbollically burn these human-looking creatures to honour the heritage they have inherited. On this night (I rolled a D3 die here to represent each of your birthdays and it came up as EJ. So the night would be 9 days after EJ’s birthday) the guild members sit around the charring fires telling tales of their victories over the Alliance, in particular any battles fought with the human race. All the while coating their faces with the remaining ashes. Such is the tradition of Ashes of Man…

 

Ranks 

 

The Ashmask- The leader and most prominent member.

 

Ashling- The rank given to those whom are new to the ranks (main toons)

 

White Ash- The rank given to those who attain entry through friends (Alt toons)

 

Ashen Beast- The rank given to those who have proven themselves to the guild.

 

Ashen-Fear- Attained through futher deeds and loyalty to the guild.

 

Ashen-Terror- One of the most senior ranks that garters much respect from the other members. Their loyalty is unquestioned and their feats countless.

 

Ashen Monstrosity- Second only to the Ashmask. Those whom attain this rank have proven themselves as the best of the best.

 

Upon joining Ashes of Man you are appointed as an Ashling and presented with a Solid Stone (all but White Ash). This is no ordinary stone, it is a piece of the original alter that first human burning fire was built upon. The stone is still charred with the memory of that fateful night. It is a symbol of your membership, even more so than the offical tabard. All ranks (except White Ash) must carry their stone and to lose, sell or otherwise dispose of it is the GREATEST insult one can give to the guild. No harm or ill will should befall this stone for it should be carried with ever swelling pride as your proof that you are part of the guild.
