    Starting in April, Baja will have a new participation/promotion system to award
    players based on their participation in events, both EM and City run.
    At this time, Baja has the "Town Guards" a system that was put into place by Seppo,
    and are a long standing tradition on Baja.
    Since Seppo retired, the "Town Guard" sadly has been neglected and it is my wish
    to revitalize them. The current "Town Guard" system reflects only on the City of
    Britain. The new system will allow other cities and citizens to participate. With the
    introduction of Governor's and the King's Council, the new system will be called
    "King's Elite Town Guard" . Their purpose is to protect not only the King in times of
    trouble, but also the Governor's and citizens of their respected towns. They will also
    be called upon in the event of any major happenings regarding the safety of Britannia.
    The old "Town Guard" will reflect these changes.
    To become a recruit and work towards advancement, you must have citizenship in
    one of the virtue cites or Vesper. The city may be of your choosing. You must also
    have at least the tier of Commended in city of choice to become inducted.
    The key to advancing in Rank in the "King's Elite Town Guard" will be based on
    participation in major events, reports to your Governor's and they to the King of any on going
    troubles in the lands, active RP'ing of duties,and attendance at city functions.
    Promotion Ceremonies will be held approximately every 6 months.

    Below are listed Ranks:

    *Recruit: New induction into the King's Elite Town Guard. Must attend a set
    number of EM events, show desire for service, before acceptance as recruit.
    Requires the title "Commended" in city of choice

    *Private: Has shown dedication to the Guard by attending EM events and
    Governor's Meetings. You will have scouted out potential threats
    in lieu of battles and report to Corporal of your town.
    requires the title of "Commended" in city of choice

    *Corporal: Has shown all of the above and has acted in a leadership roll with new
    recruits . Must have attended EM events and Governor's meetings.
    Reports to Sergeant in Arms.
    Requires the title of "Commended" in city of choice

    *Sergeant in Arms: Has leadership role over lower ranks. Must attend EM events and
    Governor's meetings. Has proven their worth in Battles.
    Requires the title of "Respected" in city of choice
    Reports to Elite Lieutenant

    *Elite Lieutenant: Commands and directs King's Elite Town Guards during times of
    troubles and hardships.
    Must show leadership qualities, attend EM events and Governor's Meetings
    Requires the title of " Esteemed" in city of choice
    Reports to Elite Major General.

    *Elite Major General: Shows dedication to service, Takes orders from and reports to
    Elite General any questions regarding the Kings Elite Town Guard.
    Must have attended EM events, Governor's Meetings. Takes reports
    from Governor's regarding threats and strife.
    Requires the title of "Honored" in city of choice
    Reports to Elite General.

    *Elite General: Commands and directs all ranks of the King's Elite Town Guard
    reports directly to the King and Governor's in private council.
    Must have attended EM Events and Governor's Meetings.
    Requires the title of "Exalted" in city of choice

    You will be able to earn points in various ways:

    1) Attending EM Events: There will be a roll call of all Kings Elite Town Guard prior to event
    and at the end of event.

    2) Attending Governor's Town Events: Governor's will need to submit to the King their
    plans for Town Events. This is to keep records
    in the case of point distribution if applicable.

    3). Turning in a report recap of the EM event via email.
    E Mail must be received no later than 24 hrs after event, If you are not
    present for roll call, but attend the event no later than 10 min in..you MUST make
    ME aware that you are there via in game chat. Failure to do so will result in you
    being considered absent from the event and no points accrued.

    4) Attendance at Governor's meetings. Attendance is not mandatory but will help
    you advance in rank and keep your rank. Failure of attendance to ANY meetings
    will result in suspension of points and possiblity of being down graded in rank.

    5) Points needed to advance in ranks are not given out as common Knowledge.
    They will be harder to obtain as you progress in rank.

    6) Points maybe awarded for meritorious duties. examples: Volunteering for dangerous
    expeditions and scouting party during times of strife.

    7) Role play of these positions will add point value.

    8) Members of the current "Town Guard", will not be required to start
    as new recruits. To maintain their current rank, they must participate in
    EM events, attend Governor's meetings and other activities. Once they have
    proven this by acquiring a set number of points their titles will be changed
    to reflect the new "King's Elite Town Guard" title.
    9) In the event there are mutiple same higher Ranking Elite Guards, their duties will be
    divided between the lesser ranking members of their respected Town.

    On a Final note:
    This is a learning, progressive attempt to provide more interaction and enjoyment between you as players, Governor's, King and myself .
    Any or all of the above is subject to change if there are issues or conflicts found in
    its concept and trial.
    Baja has a rich history and well played roleplay community. Not only will the King's Elite
    Guard be for storylines created by myself, but it is also a chance for Governor's to make use of and create active town events utilizing the King's Elite Guard and adding to that history.

    I love love love! this but Two questions :eek:

    The first being about...

    4) Attendance at Governor's meetings. Attendance is not mandatory but will help
    you advance in rank and keep your rank. Failure of attendance to ANY meetings
    will result in suspension of points and possibility of being down graded in rank.

    Wouldn't the last line contradict the Not Mandatory part.

    My second question is.... Can Governors as well be apart of the King's Elite Town Guard? If not ill just have to pull out my boots and kick Lt.Snuggles butt until he RPs with me ^_^

    Sadie: the attendance "not mandantory" is stated there, because I don't expect perfect attendance at every meeting, sometimes it's totally impossible because of RL issues to attend. Failure to attend ANY meetings is a different horse, or you come to the first few, and then stop, that is where the suspension of points or downgrading of rank comes into play.
    As far as Governor's being able to join, thats a tricky bit there.As Governor's they are in "charge" of the city and its citizens in so much as the rank of the title of Governor. I think it would be a bit contradictory for them also to be in ranks as a King's Elite Town Guard.

    Amber: I do plan on scheduling a meeting, It will be moreso towards the end of this month. I'll post the exact date closer to time. And I am excited about this also!
