|Welcome to Bad Moon Rising's website and forum. If you've gotten this far, you're probably curious about what "BMR" is all about.
Bad Moon Rising is one of the oldest guilds on Thorium Brotherhood, formed in the early days of the server and in continuous operation ever since. BMR got its start when a group of individuals moved from Feathermoon server to the newly-opened Thorium Brotherhood with a plan to start a new roleplay & raiding guild. Trannok, an Orc shaman, was the first Alpha (guild leader) of the Tribe, from January 2006 until August 2006. In August of 2006, leadership passed to Keryn, a Forsaken warrior, and remains there today.
BMR today is a group of mostly laid-back individuals who like to enjoy the game in a low-drama, low-stress environment. Some enjoy raiding, some PvP, while others are here for roleplay, questing, crafting, farming, or just to hang around and be social.
We are looking for new members; people who are looking for a stable, long term, low-drama environment, who meet the following requirements:
18 years or older.
Decent (not necessarily perfect!) spelling, punctuation, grammar, with a minimum of "lol" and "u" usage.
People who don't think "it's just a game" is an excuse to treat other players badly or cheat them on the Auction House.
People who are reasonably polite and play well with others, even to the people whose faces they are smashing/melting/etc in PvP or who are less than stellar at their class in PvE/PvP. People who are more likely to offer advice than say "u suk stop bein bad" or at least just politely excuse themselves when leaving a poorly-performing group.
"Self starters" who will go and look things up for themselves once they know where to look. People who will recognize when their raiding performance (assuming they want to raid, of course) is less than stellar and look for ways to improve themselves. People who DON'T expect the guild to provide everything for them but who will make their own opportunities.
Do we sound like the guild for you? Read about Our Rules in more detail. (This chain of linked posts eventually ends in a guild application.)
