Shadowklan members always work together, whether we are hunting creatures, defending our territory, or battling our enemies.
We join together as a Horde to hunt fearsome beasts, to raid and subdue enemy territory, and to explore. Our Horde Trips are led by our wargoth, Nobs, and other trip leaders.
We always observe discipline. This means that we always listen to Nobs and trip leaders, and always follow their commands. Those who harm the Klan by acting unruly and selfish may be disciplined by the Nobs, including being demoted or kicked out of the Klan until they learn better behavior. Horde or group leaders also have the final say on grouping with any non-alliance Midgardians.
Always remember that our power comes from the combined strength of our Alliance working in unison towards common goals. Never turn away another Alliance member. If eight members are hunting together and a ninth shows up, split into two groups to accommodate the newcomer.
Make sure to always let group or trip leaders know your status if you are coming to meet the group or if you need to leave. If you need to log in a short while, but the group is still klomping, it is always a good idea to give them a heads up "mih hab to slihb in ash'krak tiks" or something similar. All members are important to the horde, your leaving may alter the group makeup and the leaders game plan may need to be adjusted. In link dead situations both parties should do what they can to regroup if safe and possible. The party does not have to stop and should not spend more then 2-3 minutes if they do hold position before moving on.
Often times the members from both
guilds of the Alliance will be working together. When forces are
combined, ranks carry over for the purpose of giving orders or
facilitating certain activities. For matters of discipline, those
will be handled by the offenders guild officers. So if five
Shadowklan Grundurz and one Dvergar Nob were klomping together, the
senior in charge is the Dvergar Nob. If there was an issue with one
of the five Grundurz that needed disciplinary action, then the
Dvergar Nob would inform Shadowklan Nobs and they would handle the
rest from there.
When adventuring within a group or on a Horde trip, need will always be the primary requirement for requesting an item. The item also must be appropriate for your rank. Pomdungs and Gundhosh members may request or roll on an item that is under level 35 only, providing no Grundurz/Gundurz member wants it. If a commited member wants the item then the needs of the commited member(s) outweigh that of the uncommited Pomdu or Grundhosh. If needed a /random 100 will determine which Pomdung/Grundhosh or Grundurz/Gundurz rank and higher will recieve the item. Any unrequested items are to be put in the vaults where other members and kousins may use it.
A huge Horde of kobolds is powerful when it works together as a unit, and running with the Horde can be an amazing experience for all. However, it is a big challenge for even an experienced and talented trip leader to manage a huge number of kobolds, so make the trip leader's job easier and follow these Horde Rules.
When the Horde is gathering together and organizing into groups,
While the Horde Trip is underway,
Level and experience are not required to lead a trip, the clan encourages initiative. If you want to give feedback about how a Horde Trip was organized and led, feel free to send a Nob a private message after the trip. Avoid posting negative, unconstructive comments on the boards.
Generally we try to keep klomps as open to all members as possible. From time to time though, there will be klomps that will have certain requirements. These may be level based such as a capped level or a minimum level to join. They also may involve having a particular expansion enabled or other requirements. If you are unable to meet one of these requirements please take a moment to understand why and remain calm. There are always a variety of trips going on with the Horde, if you are unable to make one, you most likely will be able to make the next one!
