<Shadows of Argus> is a draenei-centric RP-PvP guild headquartered in Ironforge. <Shadows> is, in part, an intelligence service and covert ops organization operating in support of the Hand of Argus. More than this, though, it is an order of Draenei who are more practical-minded than some of their kin when it comes to doing what they think needs to be done to further the interests of their people. This includes working with character classes and personality types that other Draenei might not choose to associate with. It also means they're willing to use less-tasteful methods of getting the job done, when necessary.

1.) "Isn't this a Draenei guild? What about the other races?"
Sort of. We're trying something new. The premise is that these are Draenei who have taken it upon themselves to enlist the aid of members of the other races and include them in their day-to-day operations. We encourage Draenei RPers who might enjoy that prospect to give us a look! Other races who are interested in learning about and making friends with Draenei are also encouraged to join and see what we have to offer.
2.) "Are there class restrictions?"
No! As above, the premise of the guild is inclusive of all allied races and classes. The only characters that won't really have a place in <Shadows> are those (more pious and traditional Draenei, for example) who refuse to associate with "undesirables" like rogues and warlocks, and also characters who are unabashedly and unrepentantly evil. That's not what we're about. You've got to at least have somewhat of a conscience to belong here.
3.) "Draenei hiring mercenaries? Draenei associating openly with rogues and warlocks? Draenei stooping to spying, sabotage, interrogation, and even assassination? Isn't that kinda lore-breaking?"
Not really. The Hand of Argus, in the Bloodmyst quest line, are shown to be very pragmatic individuals who'll do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. While certain members of Draenei society might well regard themselves as being above such behavior and such associations, the Draenei have been trying for quite a long time now to make their place in the world, and some of them might well have come to the conclusion that they can't afford to cling to such haughtiness anymore. Indeed, haughtiness and insularity have cost them dearly in the past.
4.) "Do I have to be a Draenei lore expert, or a very experienced RPer?"
Not at all. But we would like you to at least have an interest. We're more than happy to teach you what you need to know.
5.) "Do I have to PVP?"
Not if you don't want to. It's a big component of what we do, so of course we encourage participation in PVP events and also taking part in running BGs and PvP training events for gear and experience, but if you do not enjoy PVP, don't sweat it. There is no requirement to do so.
IC Ranks Edit
Each branch will be generally suited to specific classes and roles, but there is certainly no rigid guideline as to which class/role can join a specific branch. It mostly comes down to how you want to RP your character and the sort of role you'd like to have within the guild. ALL OF THE BRANCHES MATTER, and all of the branches will take part in RP and events, as appropriate. The idea is not to make some seem more useful or glamorous than others. It's purely for RP flavor and immersion
The guild is lead by a Triumvirate of leaders. There are currently only two leaders at the moment; Nhadiya and Isadori. A third will be chosen eventually.
