Royal Guard Recruitment - Jan 11, 2011

Discussion in 'UO Chesapeake' started by Tancred RedStar, Jan 13, 2011.

  1. The Royal Guard(of Chesapeake) held it's first recruitment muster Tuesday evening. Beginning at the Royal Barracks within Castle Britannia in the capital city of Britain, Royal Guard Commander Drake Foxx initially reviewed the prospects before being joined by Royal Guard Captain Gwen Irina.

    (Editted journal follows):
    Commander Drake Foxx: *looks them up and down*

    Commander Drake Foxx: Good evening citizens

    Commander Drake Foxx: Tonight, you will all have the oppurtunity to join an elite unit

    Commander Drake Foxx: Tonight

    Commander Drake Foxx: As I mentioned

    Commander Drake Foxx: You will have a chance to join an elite unit

    Commander Drake Foxx: A unit that has served the Realm since time eternal

    Commander Drake Foxx: Whilst in the past we have offered a voluntary status within our ranks

    Commander Drake Foxx: Tonight, for the first time

    Commander Drake Foxx: We offer full enlistment to those who seek it

    Commander Drake Foxx: Tonight you will also be shown to the site of the future Royal Guard Barracks

    Commander Drake Foxx: This is where you will train and learn the ways of the Guard

    Commander Drake Foxx: This is where you will eat, sleep, live and prosper while on duty

    Commander Drake Foxx: It will be the base of Royal Guard operations

    Commander Drake Foxx: As well as the home port of the Royal Navy

    Tancred: Hmmm do you have Battle Standards that those of us who lead can "plant" to show their areas?

    Commander Drake Foxx: *looks over*

    Commander Drake Foxx: What's your question?

    Tancred: Hmmm do you have Battle Standards that those of us who lead can "plant" to show their areas?

    Commander Drake Foxx: Each regiment will have it's own standard

    Tancred: in heat of crowd with dragons and such to try to see past, battle standard would be useful

    Tancred: good

    Commander Drake Foxx: Now

    Tancred: thanks

    Commander Drake Foxx: As I was saying...

    Commander Drake Foxx: You will be brought to the Royal Guard Headquarters

    Commander Drake Foxx: It is an impenetrable fortress that will serve us well

    Commander Drake Foxx: Over time, you as a unit

    Commander Drake Foxx: Can earn enhancments

    Commander Drake Foxx: Some of you will be promoted

    Commander Drake Foxx: Some of you will go onto greatness

    Commander Drake Foxx: Others of you may stray from the path of virtue

    Bon Temps: Do we get some that resembles our rank?

    Bon Temps: something*

    Commander Drake Foxx: Yes

    Commander Drake Foxx: As you advance

    Commander Drake Foxx: Your uniform will reflect that

    Bon Temps: Uniform?

    Commander Drake Foxx: Our Royal Clothiers have gone to greath lengths

    Commander Drake Foxx: To put together a uniform that will offer the Guard with the utmost in flexibility

    Commander Drake Foxx: Of battle attire

    Bon Temps: We will be able to peform in battle?

    Commander Drake Foxx: While still be identifiable as a Royal Guardsman

    Commander Drake Foxx: You will be battle tested

    Commander Drake Foxx: The realm is torn in war

    Commander Drake Foxx: It is up to those of you here today to ensure it's continued prosperity

    You see: Captain Gwen Irina

    Commander Drake Foxx: *looks to the barracks*

    Commander Drake Foxx: Now, I prsent to you

    Captain Gwen Irina: Sir

    Commander Drake Foxx: Captain Gwen Irina

    Captain Irina enters the parade ground
    Captain Gwen Irina: *salutes*

    Commander Drake Foxx: *salutes*

    Commander Drake Foxx: The Captain has some words for you

    Captain Gwen Irina: Good Evening all of you.

    Captain Gwen Irina: I see several of you are familiar from previous outings

    Captain Gwen Irina: I'm glad to see that many of you are eager to serve the realm in service of the Guard.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Did Commander Foxx detail the regimental differences with you yet?

    Bon Temps: Yes

    Tancred RedStar: no ma'am

    Nyx: no

    Kato: no

    Bon Temps: We will be marked or promoted by a Uniform which distinguishes our rank.

    Bon Temps: Is that what you mean?

    Captain Gwen Irina: No, but it's good that that was gone over.

    Captain Gwen Irina: There will be four different regiments within the guard, based on...

    Captain Gwen Irina: The area of combat you are proficient in

    Captain Gwen Irina: There is a regiment for those whom command beasts and animals

    Captain Gwen Irina: A regiment for those with thrown weapons or bow weapons

    Captain Gwen Irina: A regiment for those who fight with force of arm, and at the forefront of battle

    Captain Gwen Irina: And a regiment for those who wield spells of all sorts to assist them.

    Captain Gwen Irina: If you are skilled in many areas

    Captain Gwen Irina: You will be assigned to the regiment that best suits your primary fighting abilities

    Tancred: What about the timid and cowardly?

    Captain Gwen Irina: We'll try to drill that right out of you. *to Tancred*

    Tancred: *hides behind others timidly*

    Captain Gwen Irina: And as for that, well, you may see your services utilized as a messenger if necessary.

    Tancred: hmmm maybe send the grey robes to tailor shops, is my use as messenger (grumbles)

    Captain Gwen Irina: As time progresses, we may alter the regiments a bit

    Captain Gwen Irina: If any regiment shows no applicants, it may be temporarily folded into another

    Captain Gwen Irina: This will be at the sole discretion of Commander Foxx and myself.

    Captain Gwen Irina: I want to be clear with you all though; This is not a commitment to be taken lightly

    Captain Gwen Irina: You are here to join the Royal Guard as initiates and soldiers.

    Captain Gwen Irina: I will be proud to call each of you an ally, but you must realize that...

    Captain Gwen Irina: You will be tasked with protecting this realm and those within

    Captain Gwen Irina: You'll be tasked with difficult missions, and you might not always succeed.

    Captain Gwen Irina: But when you do, you will see the fruits of your efforts.

    Captain Gwen Irina: And for those who dedicate themselves to it, a life in the Guard is a rewarding one.

    Captain Gwen Irina: You'll be taking a sacred oath as you join. This is a serious thing, and I hope you treat it as suc

    Captain Gwen Irina: *such.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Are there any other questions before we head to the compound?

    Guri: Captain, could you change your font color?

    Nyx: yes please

    Kato: can i get my drag or is he not needed?

    Rivi Ravenwynd: Is this the only night to sign up?

    Captain Gwen Irina: I'm not sure what a 'font color' is, but I will speak louder.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Your dragon will not be needed.

    Captain Gwen Irina: This will not be the only opportunity to join the Guard.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Any other questions?

    Tancred: Who will devise tactics to be used by the different squads?

    Tancred RedStar: anyone taking roll for this?

    Olin Maddox: I am Tanc

    Tancred RedStar: aye

    Captain Gwen Irina: Initially, Commander Foxx and myself. Once some of you have advanced through dedication and...

    Captain Gwen Irina: Hard work, and shown your merits, some of you may be given authority in your regiments

    Captain Gwen Irina: However, this is a burden as much as it is a privilege

    Kato: you seem to like it

    Captain Gwen Irina: I enjoy doing my duty and serving the realm, the crown, and the virtues.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Any last questions before we go?

    Bon Temps: I do admire your Halberd.

    Captain Gwen Irina: *nods*

    Captain Gwen Irina: In that case, we'll get moving

    Captain Gwen Irina: *pulls out one of Balandar's runes and activates it*

    A gate is opened, leading to the northwestern portion of Serpent's Hold in Trammel

    Commander Drake Foxx: Hello again

    Tancred: serpent's hold??

    Captain Gwen Irina: Sir, this is the bulk of them. I'll make sure to bring along any stragglers.

    Commander Drake Foxx: *nods to Gwen*

    Commander Drake Foxx: Very well

    Commander Drake Foxx: Yes, Serpent's Hold

    Commander Drake Foxx: This island will become the Royal Guard Headquarters

    Commander Drake Foxx: The fortifications here are second to none

    Commander Drake Foxx: And there is plenty of room for training

    Commander Drake Foxx: As well as all the necessary merchants and aritsans to keep us all well outfitted

    Commander Drake Foxx: And well fed

    Commander Drake Foxx: *grins*

    Commander Drake Foxx: As the unit progresses

    Commander Drake Foxx: The Fortifications here will be enchanced

    Commander Drake Foxx: And become more customized to suit our needs

    Commander Drake Foxx: The next step of this process is to proceed into the Exercises Hall

    Commander Drake Foxx: Please, follow me

    The crowd of recruits are led into the massive stone-hewn hall, Commander Foxx begins screaming at them to get into a line.

    Commander Drake Foxx: LINE UP!

    Commander Drake Foxx: GO GO GO GO!

    Captain Gwen Irina: Off of the rugs for now

    Four bags, each on a table against the wall, hold supplies for recruits, including official Royal Guard issue boots, sashes, kilts and handbooks.

    Captain Gwen Irina: As you are brought up, you need to come and take one item from each of the bags here

    Captain Gwen Irina: They are your uniform and a blank book

    Captain Gwen Irina: You will need to copy your book from the book here on the table

    The first recruit steps forward, taking one issue item from each of the bags on the tables against the wall, copies the Royal Guard Handbook, putting their name on the first page, then goes to see Commander Foxx.

    Captain Gwen Irina: The lines are alternating, one at a time, back and forth

    Commander Drake Foxx: Put even

    Bon Temps: Captain Gwen

    Captain Gwen Irina: Yes?

    Bon Temps: May I ask what this leaf is for?

    Captain Gwen Irina: The leaf is to seal your book after you have put your name in it

    Captain Gwen Irina: And you will keep the book, to remind yourself of the Oath you are about to take.

    Bon Temps: Will it be okay to create a new one since I will be changing my name shortly?

    Captain Gwen Irina: That will be acceptable

    Captain Gwen Irina: I'll get you a copy

    Commander Drake Foxx: *looks up and down*

    Commander Drake Foxx: *nods in approval*

    Commander Drake Foxx: Now that you are all properly outfitted

    Commander Drake Foxx: And wearing the basic dress uniform

    Commander Drake Foxx: It is time to take the oath

    Commander Drake Foxx: Everyone sheat all weapons and books and shields

    Commander Drake Foxx: Everyone raise your right hand

    Captain Gwen Irina: Double time! Weapons, books, shields, stow them!

    Commander Drake Foxx: And repeat after me!

    The oath of the Royal Guard is administered to the recruits, each raising their right hand and repeating the oath as Commander Foxx gives it.

    Commander Drake Foxx: I hereby swear before the virutes, the Guard and my fellow citizens to serve the realm

    Captain Gwen Irina: Repeat the lines after the Commander Does!

    Commander Drake Foxx: The Cities and their interests, and to hold myself to the high ideals of the virutes as they apply

    Commander Drake Foxx: to my duties

    Commander Drake Foxx: I swear to defend the realm and all the innocent within from threats both external and internal

    Commander Drake Foxx: I swear to fulfill these duties to the best of my ability and judgement, and to serve

    Commander Drake Foxx: As an example to those in the realm of jus t

    Commander Drake Foxx: Just what can be accomplished through virtuous and righteous conduct

    Commander Drake Foxx: I swear these things in the name of the Virtues

    Commander Drake Foxx: the name of Britannia

    Commander Drake Foxx: and on my own body, heart and soul!

    Commander Drake Foxx: *salutes!*

    The recruits take some time to finish repeating the oath.

    Commander Drake Foxx: Well then, from this point forward

    Commander Drake Foxx: You are now officially enlisted as soldiers in the Royal Britannia Guard!

    Commander Drake Foxx: From this hall we will commence training!

    Commander Drake Foxx: We will grow as a unit!

    Commander Drake Foxx: As of now, you are dismeissed!

    Commander Drake Foxx: Wait for our call!

    Captain Gwen Irina: We'll see you all soon. It's an honor to have you all as comrades

    Captain Gwen Irina: Also

    Captain Gwen Irina: Before you leave

    You see: Lord DELTA BUTCH [RBG]

    Captain Gwen Irina: The colors of your uniform should remain the same; If you have magical items...

    You see: Lord DELTA BUTCH [RBG]

    Captain Gwen Irina: Such as a magical sash, or kilt, or headpiece

    Captain Gwen Irina: Provided it is the same style as your units for headpiece, you may use a magical one

    Captain Gwen Irina: And still be in full uniform

    Captain Gwen Irina: But please dye them to the correct color

    Tancred: ahh good, thanks. Do any towns offer all dye to our guard?

    Captain Gwen Irina: The mages is the darkest dark blue on a special dye tub

    Captain Gwen Irina: The archers is the darkest tan

    Captain Gwen Irina: The melee fighters the darkest green

    Commander Drake Foxx: Sleep well Guards

    Captain Gwen Irina: And the tamers the darkest red

    Commander Drake Foxx: The only easy day, is today!

    Captain Gwen Irina: If you wish to wear glasses, you may; But keep in mind that staying in uniform...

    Captain Gwen Irina: Helps unit morale and cohesiveness, and as such

    Captain Gwen Irina: Will be given higher notice than being out of uniform

    Captain Gwen Irina: With imbuing, you shouldn't be crippled by a change.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Then you will have to make your choice

    Captain Gwen Irina: During exercises, you should wear your uniform colors proudlly

    Captain Gwen Irina: Outside of it, you may wear whatever you please

    Kato: how many merits till we get promoted?

    Captain Gwen Irina: Then you have to make that choice whether to be in uniform and slightly hampered

    Captain Gwen Irina: by a lessening of enhancements, or out of uniform

    Captain Gwen Irina: and slightly hampered in merits.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Commander Foxx will be overseeing that

    Captain Gwen Irina: Demerits are negatives against you

    Captain Gwen Irina: Merits are bonuses

    Captain Gwen Irina: You would not get a demerit for being out of your hat

    Captain Gwen Irina: But you would not get the extra merit

    Captain Gwen Irina: Any other questions?

    Kato: when is our first training session?

    Olin Maddox: Late comers sir

    Bon Temps: Theres two Tancreds here...

    Tancred: As I consider tactics it is important to know, do all mages cast now without reagents?

    Captain Gwen Irina: Many do

    Tancred: hah I am the original I expect

    Tancred: *jokes*

    Captain Gwen Irina: Our first exercise will be sometime this month

    Captain Gwen Irina: Commander Foxx is looking for an ideal date

    Bon Temps: Next week perhaps?

    Night Wolf: do we hand in these books?

    Captain Gwen Irina: It will be announced as soon as possible

    Captain Gwen Irina: That's likely

    Captain Gwen Irina: The books you have with your oaths and names should be kept safe

    Captain Gwen Irina: Both to remind you of the service you have entered, and of what it means

    Kato: should i insure the book?

    Bon Temps: You keep the books, they are your handguide and your code of conduct.

    Captain Gwen Irina: You may keep it at your home or with you

    Captain Gwen Irina: That decision is up to you

    Kato: ok

    Captain Gwen Irina: Any final questions?

    Tancred: *ponders meaning of these potentially conflicting Orders!*

    DELTA BUTCH: *clicks heels*

    Sidd: how do we know we have merits?

    Bon Temps: In Mani - Heal

    DELTA BUTCH: YES SIR

    Captain Gwen Irina: Yes?

    Tancred: I have read the Ophidian's orders

    Captain Gwen Irina: As Commander Foxx stated

    Captain Gwen Irina: Merits are given for attendance, exceptional conduct in the field, uniform, and a few other things

    Sidd: wil we receive ranks as merits?

    Captain Gwen Irina: I'm not sure what you're talking about, I'm afraid.

    Captain Gwen Irina: As you progress in merits

    Captain Gwen Irina: you will be awarded higher ranks at times

    Kato: will the uniform change a lil when we get promoted?

    Captain Gwen Irina: And also extra equipment and supplies.

    Captain Gwen Irina: Yes, uniform will be modified as you get higher ranks.

    Captain Gwen Irina: However, these will be very difficult to reach

    Sidd: and for each class is there a sergeant or supervisor in charge of our gropu?

    Sidd: group?

    Captain Gwen Irina: So do not expect them to be attained easily and quickly

    Tancred: Is it important to have a Chat channel on during events?

    Captain Gwen Irina: As merits are given, those who raise rank will grow in their regiment

    Captain Gwen Irina: And if you have a higher rank, you will sometimes be responsible for orders

    Captain Gwen Irina: And assisting your regiment in fulfilling orders from myself and Commander Foxx

    Captain Gwen Irina: Sometimes in a leadership role.

    Sidd: since we have taken the oath as honor guards to serve and protect how do we know whos taken

    Sidd: the oath?

    Kato: how will leadership work in this regiment lol

    Kato: just 2 of us

    Sidd: so we have no spies among us

    Captain Gwen Irina: Your regiment will likely grow soon

    Nyx: I am disappointed over uniforms

    Kato: hopefully

    Captain Gwen Irina: Commander Foxx and I are keeping tabs of those who have joined

    Captain Gwen Irina: And taken the oath

    Sidd: the evil lurks around us

    Captain Gwen Irina: *nods*

    DELTA BUTCH: Did you get my tab? i was late

    Kato: can we have regiment competitions?

    DELTA BUTCH: *glares*

    Sidd: i am confident now

    Captain Gwen Irina: No, but I can get you written in.

    DELTA BUTCH: Please do?

    Captain Gwen Irina: Get a second book from the table

    Captain Gwen Irina: Write your name in it

    Captain Gwen Irina: and hand iit to me

    Captain Gwen Irina: Since you were late

    Nutron Bomb: Sorry im late

    Captain Gwen Irina: You do the same then

    Kato: can we have regiment competitions?

    DELTA BUTCH: I was slaying a dragon....

    Captain Gwen Irina: There will likely be those in the future

    Captain Gwen Irina: As the regiments grow

    Tancred: Is it important to have a Chat channel on in event? Or to have it open any time, to compete etc

    Captain Gwen Irina: For now, if you have no further questions, you are dismissed

    Captain Gwen Irina: I'm not sure what a chat channel is.

    ps - yes, there were two Tancreds there, myself and another, but we're not related
