The Legendary Sisterhood shakes up Sentinels


The guys over at the Legendary Heroes podcast wanted to form a guild to play with their fans, but they didn't want to actually make it serious-- they figured that by including everyone, they'd end up with some people who were fun to play with, but weren't necessarily the best players. So instead, they formed a guild. And it's been an interesting experiment-- kind of an anti-RP RP guild.

They're formed a guild called "The Legendary Sisterhood" over on Sentinels' Horde side-- it consists only of Blood Elf female mages and priests. It's a weird cross between a cult, a party, and a griefer guild-- the denizens of Sentinels have reacted to their actions with the expected confusion. We only know there are rules: every member of the guild must have a name that starts with "Sister" (as in Sisteramy), and there is a hierarchy within the guild, topped by a dark and mysterious Queen. It's an RP guild for non-RPers-- there are weird rituals, various attacks on opposite faction capital cities, and just general mayhem. In short, it sounds awfully fun.

I'm not a huge fan of RP-ing (our own David Bowers knows much more about it than I do), but I'm not sure this is RPing or not-- they're just having fun with an old fantasy mechanic of the secret society and playing together in a way that doesn't necessarily require reaching the endgame. The guild is the character in this case, not the players themselves.

[Thanks, Mark!]

(Post updated after the jump)

Someone from TLS contacted us to say that yes, they are an RP guild, even though they consist of a bunch of people who haven't RP'd much before. They also would like those on Sentinels to lay off-- apparently a lot of "legit" RPers have attacked those behind the guild (see forum thread linked above), and there's no basis for things like that. They say that they have had a few beggars in the guild, but they're working with those players to cut that out.

It should be interesting to see where this goes-- apparently one of the guild's leaders has been working on actual lore behind the guild for a while, so it'll be intriguing to see how it all pans out.
