OOC Info about the Grey Tiger Tong

Roleplaying a secretive cross-faction criminal syndicate is a lot of fun, but can pose some problems for those who might want to either join the guild or interact with us in some way. To provide a glimpse 'behind the curtain', we've provided this section on out of character (OOC) information.

If you are interested in the Tong, we respectfully ask that you take a moment and look over some of our thoughts and expectations. Your views may vary on what is "good" RP and the Tong encourage role-playing at every level.

Explanations for being cross-faction

Alliance side, the guild is the Gray Tiger Tong. Horde side, the guild is the Grey Tiger Tong. We roleplay this as one guild that is not a part of either faction.

Of course, game mechanics do not allow cross-faction communication beyond standard emotes. We use XFire as an in-game chat program that can be used without minimizing the game window. We explain this as a cant known only to Tong members and often emote speaking a strange language.

The Tong offers transferring services to members of both factions. The auction house charges a 10% fee on gold transfers, and the Tong adds 5% for a total of 15%. Item transfer costs will be decided when you give us the item, but they will be very cheap as our focus is roleplay.

Encouraging RP

Some people have no trouble finding and becoming involved in RP. Others find it more difficult, for whatever reason. An implicit aspect of our guild is to reach out to roleplayers who have had that trouble. As a guild of criminals with a legitimate public face, almost any character can come up with an IC reason for approaching us. Additionally, feel free to contact any member OOC.
