Good members of Rhyme and Punishment

I will write a little bit about myself so you have a better understanding of who I am and why I might be a valuable asset to your group.

I have been a soldier from a very young age. I was born into a noble of house of Lordaeron many years ago. As it was customary in our family to start practicing the arts of war as soon as you can hold a sword, so did I. I spend my childhood reading about warfare and training sword fighting among other things. It might sound a little harsh for a child but it might very well be the reason why I have survived all these years. And it doesn’t mean I didn’t have a childhood at all. It was good times and I have nothing but fond memories.

At the age of 16 I became a knight in the armies of Lordaeron. This was right before the second war. Let me tell you, young men can be very foolish. Very foolish indeed. When news of a new orc invasion reached Lordaeron, we young knight were thrilled. However I learned quickly the true nature of war. Many battles I experienced and many friends I lost. I am sure many of you know what I am talking about.

The second war inspired me to become a paladin. Seeing brave men in shining armor charge into enemy lines made me want to join their ranks. I began training in the later parts of the war and officially became a paladin right after the war had ended.

After these events it feels like my life has been nothing but war. Lordaeron fell and although a group of us paladins stayed and tried to fight the scourge, we were eventually pushed out. We all went our separate ways and I ended up in Stormwind. Long story short I swore my loyalty to the new Alliance. I met many new friends, including Serendipity. It was mostly peaceful times. I chose to fight instead of being forced to fight.

A long time has passed since those days and it has not been peaceful. I’ve been gone for years. Spending my time in the Plaguelands hunting undead and fighting in wars. Now I have returned, hoping to connect to normal life as much as I can. Spend some time with good people like you.

I was a member of Rhyme and Punishment once. Vengeance and grief made me leave. And now I would like to come back home. I may be a little blunt at times. Sometimes even careless with my words. But I have trained all my life to protect those I care about and if it so happens that you or those close to you were in danger I would protect you all until my last breath.

Yours sincerely, Gaétan Valentino.

Do not remove

There were some RP guilds back in vanilla. Don't even remember names anymore. In WotLK I was doing a little raiding and dungeoneering in a family guild. After that I have been to a few guilds which certainly aren't worth mentioning.

Do not remove

Elwynn, Duskwood, Westfall, Stranglethorn Vale...there are too many. Basically all of Azeroth. Not Broken Isles. But the ones I mentioned by name I have fond memories of.

Your fondest RP memory:

Do not remove

All those endless evenings in Elwynn and Goldshire. Truly golden times. That was back in vanilla. Just so I don't sound too old who is always talking about the good old times... Roleplaying with Shefaia really needs to be mentioned here.

Why did you choose Rhyme and Punishment?:

Do not remove

Because I know the guild. I have been to many guilds since I left RnP and leaving must have been one of the worst decisions I have made ingame. The guilds I have tried have not been very friendly or been completely silent unless someone needs something. I have thought many times of coming back to RnP. Serendipity knows why I haven't. But then your folk encouraged me to join your guild so here we are.

Why do you think that we should invite you as a guild member?:

Do not remove

I'm not a silent guy. If someone says something you can be certain I will join the conversation. Not always a good thing though...! I also help if I can. If there isn't any RL stuff stopping me or something like that. For example there is a rumour that I once farmed an insane amount of silk for a friend..

Are you willing to attend guild meetings?: Yes

Are you willing to attend guild RP events?: Yes

Any thoughts or questions you wish to ask the guild?:

Nice work with fixing my character name ban. Saved me whatever money it costs to change the name.

The forum really doesn't seem to like that "é" in your name. Had to go fix the thread title and replace it with an "e" to make it visible in the topic list. Sorry about that.

It's an older signal, but it checks out.


This looks good to me, you can reach out to us for a short interview whenever you're online and any of our officers are. Currently I believe it is myself, Toot and Serendipity who are the active officers. Interview is no big fuss though. Just a formality, really.

Though personally I'll be busy the next few days after today, so you might not catch me for a while. But I'm sure Serendipity will be around!

Thank you for your application! :)

Starting to feel like I should be apologizing to you guys. Such trouble I have caused :D Let me tell you, when I created my character I never thought my name would be such a difficult one.

Thank you Lilandris. I am sure I'll find Serendipity at some Stormwind tavern.
