"The Striders before All"

The Ironhold Striders are a small band of mercenaries who specialise in jobs law enforcement won't touch, openly at least. From intercepting suspected smugglers to investigating suspicious nobles, the evidence doesn't need to stand up in court to be good. Operating from their base near the Brisban Wildlands, the Strider's fingers spread to pies all over Tyria. In such a small band of mixed ages, talents, and races one thing holds them together: The Iron Creed.

"You are all Striders"

The Striders are a morally grey mercenary guild. We offer a mix of GM run events and casual character RP throughout the week. We specialise in small events, but we've taken part in or run all sorts from your typical escort mission to the most creepy of occult happenings. We try our best to appeal to our members and generally run one or two events a week on varying days. Most of our events are run by one or two members for everyone else present and range across a variety of themes, which may include mature content.

Outside of events we offer an environment for RP with fellow mercenaries. Most evenings Striders can be found, whether RPing at our base in the Lost Precipice Guild Hall; in the various RP hubs or running their own ad-hoc contract for a smaller group. We seek to bond as a company as we get to know each other off the field as much as on.

We are here to enjoy RP with one another, and with those around the various hubs in the game, and hence do our best to avoid scheduling events when other big things are happening; though obviously that can't happen all the time! In the end; if you're looking for a nice little second family for your adorable character... Or an excuse to kill some nasty folks without quite so many strings as the Seraph; perhaps we're the place for you!

"Watch your Blade"

We are mercenaries, most of us are in it for the money. But nobody is that simple and we much prefer interesting, well rounded characters with their own personality, ambitions, flaws and weaknesses. For the Striders to maintain their bonds characters have at least some willingness to engage with each other at rest and not just when on a job.

While morally grey, the Striders are not a criminal guild. While our actions may not be entirely legal all the time, we seek to avoid bringing the full weight of the law down upon our heads. As such we are not seeking overtly criminal or evil characters. This does mean of course that while we will accept these characters if the player is adamant they won't cause serious trouble (what's life without a bit of drama), our inclination is towards those who are neutrally inclined.

Above all we require players who are active and can make their own RP. While our structured events are organised by the officers and other Striders, day to day RP is down to the individual. You will get out what you put in and if you are not regularly active we will get little from each other.

Due to the content of some of our events, we are looking for maturity in applicants, though we do not enforce a strict age limit.

I've heard only wonderful things about the Ironhold Striders. Very snazzy thread, as well. Putting us all to shame! Should you folks ever be in need of contracts, do hit me up. I've a large pile that seems to just increasingly rise. Having met a couple of these guys in Ebonhawke I'd certainly take no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for mercenary RP.

I see Clara's work is top-notch as usual.

This is a cool guild, and people should go join it.
I have too many characters...

Hello 2RP I'm Rhys and i'll be your incredibly biased guide on why you should join this guild, so prepare for bias.

I've only been here a month and it's been the best roleplay I've had in years and likely ever since joining this community, the people are great and make you instantly feel included, every character has a tale to tell and every event gives you something to think about.

I'm a strider and I approve this message.
