Hello and welcome! This will be a small guide to the roleplay/lore of Darkspear, Reventusk and Shatterspear trolls, the only three Tribes which are welcomed by the Horde.

Please note, the following Tribes are the ONLY Tribes that are given addmission to the guild.

Darkspear:

The Darkspear were once a part of the great Troll empire in Stranglethorn Vale, relatively small compared to the others they suffered many attacks and mistreatment. Growing tired of the empires constant internal fighting and warring, the Darkspear Tribe, Led by Sen'jin-- set sail to the Isles of the South Seas where they would make a peaceful home. The Darkspears exodus of Stranglethorn is a subject up to scrutiny, however in some quests they have indicated that some Trolls lived long enough to know enemies and creatures in the jungles first-hand, which would place the time they left anywhere between 30-60 years roughly. The South Seas made a good home for the Darkspear, they thrived and lived in peace with small war bands squaring off against the native Naga and other beasts of the oceans. A time came when the humans of Kul'Tiras began appearing on the shores of their island home, and the two factions began a bloody campaign against one another.
Sen'jin had a vision of strong, green warriors that brought the Darkspear peace, and said if the tribe united with these 'Orcs' that they would have the life they desired for so long. Thrall arrived and aided the Darkspears in destroying the human armies upon their island, but with a coming storm the Naga and Murlocs struck-- capturing both Thrall and the Darkspear Leader Sen'jin. Through a long battle the two races armies succeeded in rescuing Thrall, however Sen'jin did not survive the Sea Witches dark ritual. Realising his fathers wisdom and the friendship the greenskins offered, Vol'jin, son of Sen'jin, now Leader of the Darkspear-- swore to Thrall that his people will always follow him.

The Darkspear see Orcs as brothers and sisters, both have fought, bled and died beside one another, any insult to them is an insult to you. The Tauren have since gained much respect from the Darkspear, and the three races seem to hold a kinship and bond which makes them a very potent force when rallied together. These will be the two races that a roleplayer would find most in common with, all three are dedicated for the Horde's well-being, and have a shared spiritual belief system.
The Blood Elves and Forsaken are seen with some distrust, mainly the Forsaken and their corruption of anything they touch. The Elves have had feuds with the Forest Trolls, but seem keen on maintaining bonds of peace and goodwill to the Darkspear. The Goblins are a strange thing to the Darkspear, they seem obsessed iwth gold and machines, a Darkspear would more than likely see them as strange for not giving thanks to the spirits or earth for their fortune and are mainly a lost cause for any Darkspear-- HOWEVER, a large group of Goblins did fight beside the Horde, and were even compelled by a sense of honor to remain with them and the Darkspears value honor highly.
As a Darkspear you do not forget what the other tribes of the Gurubashi Empire have done to you, what they committed against your people-- many if not all want to see these tribes dead, brought to justice for what they have done. The Reventusk and Shatterspear are on friendly terms with the Darkspear, the Reventusk being the only Forest Troll tribe to stand by the Horde and not abandon them in a time of strife and the Shatterspear who also fled the Empires violence to aquire peace.

Reventusk:

One of the many Forest Troll tribes in the Amani Empire, the Reventusks were never a large tribe and when the Elves laid attacks upon the Empire, the Reventusk sought an escape from war and settled upon the Coastlines of the Hinterlands. When Doomhammer's Horde promised the Forest Trolls their lands back from the eleves, they joined happily, but after the Hordes defeat, the Forest trolls abandoned their one time allies as quickly as they joined. The Reventusk felt sorrow for their captured allies, but did not have the power or numbers to release the Orcs from their slavery camps. With word of Thrall, and his new Horde's promise of peace the reventusk were intrigued and met with the new Warchief to discuss the Tribe joining the Horde. The Reventusk ultimately declined a direct spot in the Horde, but swore Thrall their loyalty and promise of mutual assistance.
The Reventusk are not reknown for being fighters, what they are known for is their linguistic skills, and would rather discuss a problem rather than cut it down.

As a reventusk you would feel a kinship to the Orcs, since they have fought by the Forest Trolls side in the days of Doomhammer, a reventusk would feel they have to prove their friendship to an Orc because of their failure to save their allies from a life of slavery, however you remember their recklessness and are wary of their future. The many adventuring Darkspear and Tauren over the years have made a positive impact upon the Reventusk, while curious about them the Reventusk do not relate to their blood-bound devotion to the Horde.
The Elves are a tricky spot for the Reventusk, while the High Elves once waged war upon their people, these 'Blood Elves' claim to have no affiliation. Through roleplay and your own experiences maybe you can be the judge of the Blood Elves, and see them as friend or distrustful aquaintence. The Forsaken as always (poor folks) are met with distrust, they are former humans and high elves so you have a negative history with them, not to mention the dark magic and experiments they conduct freely.

Shatterspear:

The Shatterspear are the newcomers into the Horde, many are fleeing regufees from the Night Elves unprovoked invasion of their homeland. The Shatterpsear tribe fled the Stranglethorn Vale shortly after the fall of Hakkar the Soulflayer, to find peace from the Empires constant violence. They are known for being one of the most peaceful tribes, seeking only a quiet life in the mountains of Darkshore they came under attack by the Alliance, and was thrust into turmoil and war once more. The relatively new Shatterspear are very new, and little is known about them which gives roleplayers the freedom to create creative histories and stories about their character.
With the refugees arriving so soon to Orgrimmar they are most likely confused about their new allies, do you thank them for their support, and them bringing you back from the brink of extinction? Or do you blame them for the turmoil brought upon your tribe, the choice is up to you.
The Shatterspear lived with the Darkspear back in the Empires days in Stranglethorn, and judging by the two tribes philosophical views, they would have become good allies.

Lore-lols:

As great as roleplaying an exotic Drakkari, or outlandish Amani is-- there are many restirctions hat come with them. Any tribe not stated above is seen as a hostile troll to both Horde and Alliance (with exception the Shadowtooth tribe and the Night elves.) and would more than likely be killed on sight. An amani troll walking into a Horde tavern is a sign of a roleplayer that does not know his/her lore, or perhaps has a backstory to state why the Horde would not have them slayed on sight. <The Darkspear Tribe> is a guild solely for Trolls that are serving in the Horde, that have sworn loyalty to the Warchief, and embrace a peaceful future for all it's members. This means No Amani. No Drakkari. No Frostmane. No Winterax. No Skullsplitter, Bloodscalp or Sandfury. Upon joining the Tribe you're expected to have read up on your lore, and follow logically how you believe the world would act to your character.

Indeed-- it's mainly for readers that don't know how the basic concept of the races interact. There is always going to be different opinions on how to relate to other races, but this is just a platform to help understand how the Tribes mainstream society views the other races.
