Dawi Karaz, the mountain dwarves, are sworn to defeating the
orc invaders that threaten the lands of the humans, gnomes, and dwarves.
We will not stop fighting until the orcs are driven from our world and back to
the vile pit that spawned them.
Dawi Karaz is an informal roleplay guild.
The extent of our enforced roleplaying is to speak dwarvish and speak it out
loud (in /say) as much as reasonably possible. Aside from that we have few
rules other than the rules set forth by Blizzard. We won't tolerate
abusive behavior, including language and we won't tolerate immature behavior.
Our dwarves are to always treat others in a way that will bring respect to
themselves and to the guild.
For those who wish to play dwarves in this
community, here are the guidelines that you must follow:
You must have a suitably dwarvish name. Names like "MasterKiller"
or "Iroxju" will not be considered for membership. Look over the
language lexicon and the members list for examples of suitable dwarven names.
We try to speak in dwarven as much as possible, it adds a lot of flavor to
the dwarven characters. If there are more than one dawi in a group,
one will be the interpreter for the non-dwarves. The rest will speak
dwarven. Using the language lexicon is just fun.
We are not just about roleplaying dwarves, PvP is also a
big part of being dawi as is being a good all around player. To these
ends we will share tactics and strategies regularly in order to hone our
skills. Knowing how your team-mate will react in any given situation
makes the whole team work better.
Dwarves might be a little greedy about sharing with
outsiders (don't have to be, but if you want to roleplay that it is fine) but
within the clan they are generous to a fault. It is expected that if you
have something that you cannot use but another dawi can that you offer it to
them. This will make us all better.
No dawi is to hold a grudge against clan-mates who move
on to other things. All of our lives and needs change, you yourself may
someday feel you need a clan that provides other things than the dawi and will
want the same respect for such a difficult decision.
Some notes about the dwarves:

Dwarves have a fondness for exploding potions and a large need for healing potions.|
