About the Guild & How to Register / Apply

OOC: About The Guild

The Order of Natures Grasp is a RP Guild. We hold a guild meeting every week, and in addition aim for lots of random RP and regular events and campaigns. Most of our events take place in Northern Kalimdor, in the Kaldorei lands, although we have been known to offer our services for the good of the Alliance as a whole. Each and every member of the guild is welcome to contribute ideas and lead their own events.

Besides RP, many of our members enjoy casual PvE or PvP and often team up for other things the game has to offer, like Heroics, LFR, BG's/Arena's or Timewalking. However we do not actively organise these on the calendar.


Classes We Accept:

We accept all classes except Death Knights, Mages, and in the future, Demon Hunters.


What We Like:

We all work together to create a friendly, supportive, and welcoming guild atmosphere. Promotions are given on merit, not time in the guild. You can help the guild by doing the following:

RP: Instigate a casual campfire, a big plot, an event, random roleplay, anything…
Working together: Encourage parties and raids together within the guild
Boosting: Lend a hand to those struggling lower down the levels with advice, instances, time, anything...
Membership: Help find decent players, promote the guild in a positive way.
Atmosphere: Say a friendly hello when other members log on and join in the /g chat conversation.

What We Don’t Like:

We have four simple rules…

1. No corpse camping, griefing or ninja-looting.

2. Do not be offensive towards your guildies or make them feel unwelcome.

3. Whilst you have the <Order of Natures Grasp> flag over your head your character should not act in a way that could harm NG’s reputation amongst the rest of the community, RP or otherwise. If you want to play a drunk in Stormwind do it on an alt. Please do not use OOC speak in /s or /y. Furthermore, act responsibly in any non-guild chat in the game: be respectful of your fellow players in public channels like /trade, /bg etc.

4. Do not take part in any 3rd party power-leveling services, gold-buying, honor-farming (including BG afk'ing) or any other form of violation of the Blizzard EULA.

How to Register

  • Before you make your forum account, keep in mind the name you choose should be that of your main NG character. If you have no character in the guild, your forum name should be that of your applying character.
  • If you haven't done this, we can't grand you access to the appropriate areas, and we can't recognize who you are here on the forum.

Spammers and commercial bots keep on registering on our forum and sometimes dropping posts with porno links or pictures.
So, to avoid this, now you need activation by admins in order to be able to post in the forum.

  • If you wish to apply, you should be able to post in the Recruitment Camp and view the whole Wilderness area.
  • If you are a visitor, wishing to hang around, whether you are a friend of the Order or an ex-Member or another guild's Representative, you should be able to post and view the Wilderness area (except applications, PM a Councillor if you wish to share something about an application). Furthermore, you may view almost all of the Order area except the member-only forums.
  • If you are a member you have unlimited access to all areas of the forum, except the Officer forums.

Send a private message to an officer ingame if you can't post in the appropriate sections!

Security Note: If you forgot your password, contact an officer. We can't see your password, but we can provide with a new temporary one, so that you reset it to your desired one.

Account creation help:

1. On the top right section of this page, you should see an option to "Register". Click on it. (open it in a different window or tab, if you want to be able to see these instructions step-by-step)

2. First page will have a board question asking if you were born before or after a certain date. Select one of the two options.

3. Second page you will be led to, is the typical "Do you agree to the terms of registration?" Of course you do. Next step.

4. The actual Account Creation.
You'll need to fill in those fields:
  • Username : this has to be your main char in NG (or the char you intent to be your main char in NG)
  • E-mail address : this is required, to create an account. make sure it's active ;)
  • Password : minimum 6 characters
  • Language/Timezone : select the appropriate from the available (Language will always be British/English)
  • Character/Realm/Class : your char info
  • CAPTCHA : Answer the question posed by the system.

The next screen will inform you that "Your account has been created. However, this board requires account activation, an activation key has been sent to the e-mail address you provided. Please check your e-mail for further information."

5. Check your email inbox now.
There should be an email from natures-grasp.net. Keep this email. It mentions your username and password. In this email, you'll see the following: "Your account is currently inactive. You cannot use it until you visit the following link:" followed by a link. If there is not a mail, check your Junkmail-inbox.

Click on that link to activate your registration.

6. You'll be directed to the NG forums once again. Fill in your username and password and log in.

You should be able to post your application in the Recruitment Camp now.

Check out the stickies in that forum, to make sure there will be no need to re-run your application (fill in all required information and make sure you know what you need to know about applying)

How to Apply

Making an Application

We have some simple Requirements before you can join The Order of Natures Grasp.

  • First of all you need to able to write and read simple English, this is required because our view is that you wont able to roleplay if you can not understand english.
  • You are not required to have done roleplaying before, but you must be able to at least learn and improve your roleplaying.
  • We have an age limit of 17, which will apply in as good as all cases.
  • We have no level or gear requirements, as you can Roleplay the same if you're level 10 or 90.

If you wish to make a application for joining the Order of Natures Grasp then you should do the following:

1) Create a new topic. Post your class, level and name/surname and IC age of your character and why you would like to join (Both IC and OOC), plus your ooc-age, so we know you are mature enough to join.

2) Then proceed to make/post a good IC background story* about your character. It does not mean that you absolutely have to write an essay. But anything larger than 15-20 lines is great!.


*The background must respect the lore of Warcraft.

So, be smart and if you want to avoid to give us a really bad impression follow the simple rules to not make silly mistakes, explained here.

You'll get some replies by our members who may correct your background, if needed. Once your application has been approved by two officers, you'll be contacted by an officer (or try getting hold of one yourself) about arranging an in-game interview. Don't be put off by that, it's simply an IC session where we get to meet you. After that, and provided that no major issue emerges, you'll be notified if you can join or not. Once invited, you will become an Initiate, which is our trial rank.

Application Form

Char Name:
Char Class:
Char Level:
Char Age: (We generally use the guide that states 300 as the age night elves comes into adulthood. So it shouldn't be much lower than that, since we don't accept minors.)
Your RL age:
Your RL gender:

Background Story: (A simple background, giving an idea of your char. We don't ask you to write an essay, but 2 lines won't do, instead they'll paint a bad first impression. There is no fixed length, but something around 5-8 lines should be fine.)

A few key concepts to avoid the most common lore errors are:
* Teldrassil/Darnassus was raised after the battle at mount Hyjall (10-15 years ago)
* We had no knowledge of virtually any of the other playable races before the battle at Mount Hyjal.
* We didn't know Eastern Kingdoms existed before the battle at Mount Hyjal.
