Role Playing

The Ebon Redemption
Open Guild Roleplay

The wind shrieked like a child in pain.

Ignorant of the tempest raging outside, a lone figure knelt before an ancient altar sheltered by cold, saronite walls. Despite the storm that seemed engulfed the structure, the interior was deadly calm, allowing the figure to concentrate wholly on the rythmic sounds of his own breathing.

His meditation was broken by a sudden gust of wind, sweeping through the benches, snuffing out the few candles that littered the room, providing the faint illumination. The figure's long, elegant ears twitched, as they registered the sound. The wind died as suddenly as it came, leaving the room once again in deadly silence. His concentration broken, the figure rose, the heavy platemail he wore creaking in protest of the motion. He opened his eyes, once burning with bright amber, now glowing with an unnatural blueish hue. His glaring eyes surveyed the now dark room, trying to pinpoint the source of the eerie gust of wind. It was more of a motion out of sheer habit, for his heightened other senses have long ago registered the other presence in the room with him.

Welcome to the Ebon Flame!

Ebon Flame is a raiding guild with a strong social and community aspect based on Moonglade, an RP-PvE realm in the EU.

We are one of the oldest guilds in the realm, formed in December 2005. Today, Ebon Flame is a long-standing & successful guild with active recruitment, resources in the form of a focused & well stocked/funded guild bank accessible to members, and an active Officer corps.

We have until recently fielded two 10-man raiding teams. One was a progression raiding team that asked a high performance level from its members, and the other was a more social raiding team that wished to progress through current content and who are not afraid of a little challenge along the way. In the run-up to Warlords of Draenor, we have consolidated into one raiding team - and we will continue with one team into the expansion, hitting everything all the way up to & including Mythic.

As well as our raiding successes, we pride ourselves on the stable and mature community we have built up over time and welcome like-minded people to join us as social members. We encourage all other kinds of activities to take place, from PvP in arenas & battlegrounds to role-playing to PvE in instances and doing dailies together. We always aim to get to know each other better, challenge ourselves against the greatest of challenges, and ultimately enjoy the game all of us have chosen to play.

After some considerable time and a number of issues affecting numbers of raiders, on the evening of Thursday the 9th May 2016 with less than twelve weeks to go until Legion launches, Ebon Flame made it's first successful foray into Mythic Hellfire Citadel - and dropped the first couple of bosses. People seemed to generally enjoy the renewed challenge and chance to stretch their skills in tough, progression content again for the first time in months. :-)
