    Hello Catskills,

    Some news has been posted to the Catskills EM Website. It seems there will be a Royal Guard Promotion event on Sunday, June 20th at 7:30PM EST in Castle British (Trammel).
    Here is the news post:
    Captain Olivia Kanlocke had always been an early riser in the morning and eager to face the days challenges ahead. She sat at the edge of her bed, pulling on her boots, and donning the rest of her Royal Guard uniform. Her specific duties this week proved to be exhausting, yet rewarding. She visited each of the major cities in Britannia and spoke directly with the town guard stationed there. It was important for the Royal Guards serving under Queen Dawn to be in regular communication with the town guard garrisons. Her inquiries and meetings with the town guards served as a way to piece together intelligence related to threats that could potentially affect the safety of the entire Kingdom of Britannia. This task was something she had been doing almost bi-monthly for years now in her position as Captain.

    This week however, she also spent time gathering information about the various Royal Britannian Guard contingents that were recently formed in some of the various cities. The Royal Guard had recently deemed it wise to leave a small, permanent regiment of Royal Britannian Guards, in places such as New Haven, Umbra, Wind, and even the Abyss Outpost. The Crown felt, by having a permanent contingent of Royal Britannian Guards stationed in these various cities, any potential threat facing those specific locations would be better handled with the accompanying aid of the local Royal Guards contingent, than by just merely the town guards alone. There was several heated discussions between high ranking officers in the Royal Guard as to whether or not the town guards, and Royal Britannian Guards, could co-exist without too much bickering between the two groups. Thus far, preliminary assessments have shown that no issues have arisen but the situation will be continuously monitored.

    Having donned her uniform, Captain Olivia Kanlocke was now ready to speak with the Royal Guards underneath her direct chain of command, as she did every single morning. She prepared, in detail, the written orders for her subordinates last night before drifting off to sleep, as was her usual routine. She grimaced momentarily, anticipating yet more grumbling from Sergeant Zeke Goldmoon when he finds out what duty she is tasking him, and his patrol, with today. While the young Sergeant has proven himself to be a valiant man on the battlefield, he has yet to prove his worth in his newly appointed position of Sergeant - often lacking the patience needed to lead. She reminds herself to set aside time to speak with the young Sergeant privately, and offer him some helpful advice learned from her many years while serving in the Royal Guards. An officer, especially one as young as the Sergeant, can greatly benefit from the experience and wisdom shared by ranking superiors.
