Town Guard Recruits Promoted By WarderDragon On Saturday, October 17th, Her Majesty Queen Regnant Dawn of Britannia ordered that a second round of Standard Recruitment Tests (or S.R.Ts) be administered to determine who might be eligable to become a ranking member of the Town Guard Brigade in New Britain. As you may remember, the Town Guards were established by the recently deceased Captain Commander Aino Nystad, who had created the military unit to protect the Capitol and its Citizens from Orcs, Red Caps, Minor Demons, and other outsiders who would threaten Britannian Sovereignty and Peace. When I arrived, Sir Robert the Ranger was introducing himself to Corporal Brackus and the five recruits who had arrived to take that afternoons evaluation. He explained that he was chosen to evaluate the Guards, but would be relying on Corporal Brackus' help to administer the test and determine the results. He also expressed his condolences to the recruits for the loss of their Captain Commander. The Guards then proceeded with their test. Brackus tested his recruits on a number of practiced drills, including the building of fortifications and the parade march. Robert then asked to see how they might perform an arrest. With a smirk, Brackus ordered the Town Guards to arrest Recruit Yalp. They quickly disarmed his spellbook, surrounded, and restrained him. The Bucket Brigade Drill required that the Town Guards race from one end of the arena to the other, in full armor, carrying buckets of water to extinguish a magically conjured flame. When the drills were complete, Robert announced that they would be visiting the Royal Guard Beastmaster to test themselves on teamwork in actual combat. When they arrived, plenty of taunting was exchanged between the woman (whom Brackus later mistook for a man) and the Recruits. After defeating two strange green lizards, a diseased ratman, a terethan matriarch, and a bronze dragon, Robert announced that he believed all recruits were ready and that they would all be promoted to the rank of Town Guard. Congradulations Leithia, Yalp, Calyndrell, Ariane Du Bris, and Alfred for their successful completion of the Recruitment Tests.
