    This thread is meant to serve as a central information source that should answer most of your questions about the RBG. The information here has been collected from past EM posts and by myself from in-game sources. Anything that came from another post will include a link to the original source.

    Since there is a great deal of information here, for ease of navigation this post will serve as the index--just click on the topic you wish to look at to scroll down to it, or you may scroll through the entire thread to see everything.


    The information in this thread was compiled by me based on what I could find both in and out of game. Any errors or omissions within are my own.

    What is the RBG?
    When and where does the RBG meet?
    What are the ranks and how do I increase my rank in the RBG?
    What are the uniforms?

    What kind of rewards are there for RBG events/participation?

    What is the RBG?

    The RBG, or Royal Britannian Guard, is an EM-led group (though not a formal guild) of players who participate in roleplay-based events that are typically labeled as being specifically for the RBG. RBG members start at the rank of recruit and rise through the ranks. From this post by former EM Dudley:

    When and where does the RBG meet?

    The RBG does not have a regular schedule. There are usually zero, one, or two RBG events each month, which are announced with the monthly EM schedule and labelled specifically as RBG events. (Watch the Chesapeake forum for the EM schedule.)

    As with all Chesapeake EM events, before a RBG event starts a gate will open in Luna leading to the RBG meeting area in Serpent's Hold. RBG events usually start in the northwest building (labelled "Assembly Hall" on the map below) in Serpent's Hold. (Map from this post by former EM Dudley.)

    Each regiment has its own section:

    The RBG ranks are as follows (from this post by former EM Dudley):

    Attendance and participation contribute to rank promotions within the RBG. Each RBG event you attend can earn you between 1 and 5 merit points. From this post from EM Drosselmeyer:

    What are the uniforms?

    There are four regiments in the RBG. Listed alphabetically they are: archers, mages, melee fighters, and tamers. Each has their own base uniform, to which awarded rank pieces may be added. RBG members are encouraged to wear their uniforms to muster, but are allowed to change into their preferred fighting gear for combat.

    Archers

    [​IMG]

    The RBG archer uniform consists of studded tunic, leggings, gloves, sleeves, and gorget, with boots, a body sash, and a cap. The studded pieces and boots are hue 2419, which is the topmost dull copper color in the leather dye tub. The body sash and cap are hue 33 (berserker red), which is the leftmost of the reddest reds in a normal dye tub (the seventh color from the left in the default dye tub selection in the CC, or you can just select "berserker red" in the EC).

    Mages

    [​IMG]

    The RBG mage uniform consists of a kimono (male or female), thigh boots, leather gloves, and a wizard's hat. The kimono and thigh boots are hue 902, which is the bottom color when you set brightness all the way to the left on normal dye tub. The wizard's hat is hue 33 (berserker red), which is the leftmost of the reddest reds in a normal dye tub (the seventh color from the left in the default dye tub selection in the CC, or you can just select "berserker red" in the EC).

    Melee Fighters

    [​IMG]

    The RBG melee fighter uniform consists of dull copper platemail glove, legs, arms, gorget, and chest, as well as a body sash and bandana. The platemail pieces are all the standard dull copper color, and the body sash and bandana are hue 33 (berserker red), which is the leftmost of the reddest reds in a normal dye tub (the seventh color from the left in the default dye tub selection in the CC, or you can just select "berserker red" in the EC).

    Tamers

    [​IMG]

    The RBG tamer uniform consists of leather ninja jacket and pants, leather gloves, thigh boots, body sash, and skullcap. The leather pieces and thigh boots are hue 2406, which is the topmost shadow color in the leather dye tub. The body sash and skullcap are hue 33 (berserker red), which is the leftmost of the reddest reds in a normal dye tub (the seventh color from the left in the default dye tub selection in the CC, or you can just select "berserker red" in the EC).

    Examples of each uniform can be viewed in the Hall of Commons, a rune to which is locked down in Luna on the table in front of the tailor shop. You may also reach it by running directly north from the Britain moongate in Trammel.

    For each rank you achieve in the RBG, you can receive one item with your character's name and rank on it. The current item selections are as follows (from this post by EM Drosselmeyer:

    RBG events will never give traditional "drops" like at other events. From this post by EM Drosselmeyer:
