    Pretty basic, you are there to guard the King and to provide a positive perception of the Crux Ansata to the others gathered.

    Hmm... so kind of like a Sosarian Secret Service. Nice. I guess we will have to utilize pigeons or ravens in place of earpieces to have hidden communication with each other :D Short flights, but secret communication seems to be the key to protecting leaders haha

    The first couple of weeks when the Crux was brand new, Spelocey made all of us gear.
    We all gathered at the arena outside of Luna and practiced Honor guard moves. It was hysterical, but we really did look like Knights.
    Maybe we can gather once again and chat on colors and dress and maybe even do syncronized marches.
    Maybe Bennu can put down a red carpet at the castle to show a walk way for this procession and state where we are to meet the king prior to events

    Those of us who volunteered, we need to get together one day this week and rehearse.

    Queen and I came up with a idea to lead and enter the King for the Governor meeting. We want to know what you guys think, thanks!

    I also need to know who all would like a suit that is pre-made. You don't have to use this suit of course, just let me know if you're interested! :)

    Sound good to me, just let me know a time and place and I will try to be there.

    On the suit, sign me up for one. Personally I think it would be best for the Kings Honor Guard should all have the same uniform by the same crafter *shurgs* That's just my vote tho :)

    Might I make a recommendation that pikes be used instead of spears?

    Okay, for those that are interested, here are the various versions of the suits.



    MALE:

    Suit4.JPG



    FEMALE:

    Suit5.JPG

    Suit6.JPG

    Suit7.JPG

    Suit8.JPG






    All suits are crafted 'by the Crux Ansata'.... Sashes are not included unless needed. (I'm using my previous promotion sash)

    Suit9.JPG


    (Of Course, if you want, you can use a suit of your own. I'm not sure if we are all looking alike or we all present our own style. This is just a sample of what I can make :))

    I thought the Crux's uniform would have some of that blue in it, like the first pic at the top of the listing, (sash)
    Put a sash on everyone, would be enough. If that color is available, for the uniform.

    I was emphasizing that those who are able, use their Crux Promotion sash.

    I have a couple of those regular sashes anyone can use, but I do request that they be returned. (They are apart of my armor sets displayed at my house)

    Too bad my current sash isn't the blue anymore :(

    I have a 'green' sash dyed that blue I could use, but it still makes me sad.

    Bennu, this is for you. It wouldn't let me private message ya, so here is what we came up with for the escort:



    Kings1.JPG
    We are in 2 lines, 4 people in one line. The king will be on the steps. Kreepy and I will have to be on the outside to be able to set up a later segment of this.


    Capture.JPG
    The king will cross in the middle and at that time, we all bow and salute.



    Kings3.JPG
    After we bow and salute, we all take 2 steps forward and turn to face the king. At this point we will follow the king wherever he may go. (The king will be leading)




    Kings4.JPG
    In the front is Kinslayer and myself. The king will be in the middle, and we will have the rest of the guards around the king.
    Kinslayer and I will enter the the meeting room ALONE to introduce the arrival of the king.



    Kings5.JPG
    After we announce the arrival of the king, I will tell everyone in party chat to escort the king to his seat. At that time, the doors will open and in comes the king and the rest of the Knights. Kinslayer and I will follow in behind the group.



    Everyone will be in party chat when this begins so we can have a better communication system.

    Again, I'm not sure why I'm volunteering anything (except to say that this is a fascinating idea) since my shard is Napa, and I only have just the one member of Stuffa's old crew on Atlantic, but might I recommend the use of Chaos shields, as the design is part of Lord Blackthorn's crest.

    Still think pikes are the way to go, though.

    Chaos Shields will be available. What Queen Arya and myself are wearing is a very peculiar shield that serves as an event item as well as a very important piece in our role playing style. It is named:

    Chevalier's Bulwark, The Knights Of The Crux Ansata


    Since we are knights of the Crux Ansata protecting the crown. We figured if you have one of these shields, it would go great with the role playing. :)

    No... it's not. I am not the King.

    I will see that the King gets a copy of your plan though.

    As far as the shields go, Chaos Shields represent the King, The Silver Serpent shield can be a symbol of either Order or of the Crux Ansata (We meet in the chamber of the silver serpent), either shield is permitted. Amandine wears a Chaos shield, Blackthorn has the symbol on his armor and clothing not to mention all over the castle, but either symbol are acceptable and both can have multiple meanings to the individual wearing them.
