  1. Renatus-Marna

    Writ of Exit, 1660.

    Issued and confirmed by His Royal Majesty, the King of Renatus-Marna, Aurelius of the House of Horen, 11th of The Grand Harvest, 1660. TO OUR BELOVED SUBJECTS, The Crown of Renatus-Marna has seen fit to both publicize and explain its decision to revoke its membership from the Global Assembly, or “GA” for the sake of further explanation. The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes it is just that our fair country should leave this globalist institution for a plethora of reasons, ranging from corruption to idleness. As such, the Crown of Renatus-Marna shall list our grievances, and further explain why leaving the GA, as well as the advocation for its dissolution, is so important in the midst of this great world war. The Reasons for Renatus-Marna’s Separation from the GA are as followed: The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes that the existence of the GA is an attempt at destroying the sovereignty of our people, and of all nations, by spreading a globalist government ran by third-rate bureaucrats due to the simple fact that the GA attempts to impose pointless and constricting regulations upon member states. The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes that the GA is, in fact, not beneficial to those residing on Atlas as the GA has showcased zero initiative to resolve any global issues. Likewise, when given the chance to resolve issues, such as conflicting titular claims in the Human Summit, the GA merely brushed all grievances beneath the table, showcasing that the GA does not, in fact, care for any global issue. The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes that the GA is, in fact, sapping money from member states without cause nor result as no funding has been reported to have being distributed to any cause other than the pockets of the chairman. The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes that the GA conflicts with the Crown’s duty to defend the faith, as well as the interests of all Canonists, by barring the Vicar of God from holding a seat within the GA. The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes that the GA is unfit to protect member states at their meetings, let alone victimized member states in an actual conflict as seen with the recent assassination attempt upon our Lord Marshal, Antonius Horen. The Crown of Renatus-Marna believes the GA to be morally unfit, by nature, due to the fact that its Chairman, Lotte Baptiste, has showcased damning signs of being a Necrotic. Additionally, to ALL who may disavow this globalist institution, the Crown of Renatus-Marna thusly invites you to partake in its disavowal and separation. Likewise, the Crown of Renatus-Marna also invites you to push for this corrupt body’s complete dissolution, for it serves no one's interests but that of aspiring politicians and greedy bureaucrats. IN NOMINE DEI, HIS ROYAL MAJESTY, Aurelius I of the House of Horen, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, and Savoy, Duke of the Crownlands, Cascadia, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Senntisten, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the heartlanders, etcetera.

  3. The Coat of Arms of the Crown of Renatus-Marna ______________________________________________________________________________ ESTABLISHMENT OF THE OFFICE OF THE CASTELLAN ENGINEER “The Imperial Colleges were once a proud institution boasting humanity’s finest and most gifted. Humanity has since fallen into a period of intellectual decline. Lost is our expansive knowledge of our forefathers; scattered to the winds. No longer. Let this be an Age of Reclamation.” Issued and confirmed by His Royal Majesty, Aurelius I of the House of Horen, King of the Crown of Renatus-Marna, 11th of the Grand Harvest, 1659. To our most leal and beloved subjects and any of whom it may concern, Humanity lies at the bottom of an abyss of a period of recession. Since the fall of Johannesburg, humanity has been rife with petty feuds and interwarring. Man against fellow man. And amidst this chaos - these dark ages - we have lost much of our knowledge - records of our past. All of our history - scattered to the winds. In regards to innovation and technological advancement, we have reached a period of stagnation. Humanity had once bred the finest minds the realm has ever seen. Each man driven by his short term life on the realm - compared to the other Descendants. Each man determined to leave his mark. They were driven to fulfill extraordinary feats, conquer insurmountable heights, and most importantly improve. As sons of Horen, we possess no time to pursue fruitless endeavors. Such is the nature of our curse. Though let it be known, that we will not let it be our weakness. As a people, we shall advance. As both a nation and in the state of mind. We will endure and we will progress. In light of this, the Crown of Renatus-Marna deems it long overdue to establish to Office of the Castellan Engineer. Let the position serve as chief and foremost expert on technological advance. Let him collaborate closely with our greatest minds to ensure that we are amply prepared should a threat arise. Let him allow our vast legions to operate with added efficiency and with siege engines to topple down the mightiest of walls. Foremost, they will possess paramount knowledge in construction, discovery, and siegecraft. Let this document stand as the origins of the esteemed post of Castellan Engineer, and the declaration of a new age; one in which we reclaim humanity and free our conscience. Let this stand as our beginning of our enlightenment. Henceforth, the Castellan Engineer, on behalf of the Crown, shall subsidize and collaborate with the other great minds to ensure that we are not overtaken by our foes. But rather, ten steps ahead. POWERS DELEGATED TO THE CASTELLAN ENGINEER Foremost to oversee the oversee the construction of siegecraft. The Castellan Engineer shall work closely in tandem with the specially trained Assault Sappers of the King’s Renatian Legion. To employ and collaborate with other minds to advance the Crown of Renatus-Marna technologically. He may subsidize numerous individual projects. To conduct field research vital to the Crown’s Research and Development (R&D) Program. To develop cutting edge technology, crucial to ensuring the Crown of Renatus-Marna status as a modernized state and the efficiency of the King’s Renatian Legion. To detain certain individuals, creatures, or other beings, for further examination and to study their intricacies. To retain an expansive archive log detailing each endeavor. IN NOMINE VERITAS, HIS ROYAL MAJESTY, Aurelius I of the House of Horen, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, and Savoy, Duke of the Crownlands, Cascadia, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Senntisten, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the heartlanders, etcetera. HIS EXCELLENCY, Aran of the House of Talraen, Seneschal of the Crown of Renatus-Marna HIS EXCELLENCY, Klaus of Heldenburg, Castellan Engineer of the Crown of Renatus-Marna
  4. THE CROWN OF RENATUS-MARNA’S LINE OF SUCCESSION, 1658 In Nomine Dei. In the Name of God. The Crown of Renatus-Marna adheres to absolute lateral succession, wherein the crowned monarch has the right to name his heir, whether it be the eldest or youngest, from brother, to uncle. Ergo preventing the problematic clog of devious monarchs to take the throne, and ensuring that it is a strong, pious Prince to ascend the throne, and reign both their Horen lineage and Crown alike through a golden succession. Provided one is from the lineage of the Exalted Godfrey and the Crowned Pertinax Horen of yore and derive from the blood of one Aurelius Horen, Fidei Defensor, then one may potentially have a claimant upon the throne. Only he, who has been named Crown Prince to the Crown, may supplement their true claimant to the throne. The current royal dynasty to reign the Crown of Renatus-Marna is the House of Horen, with its current succession limited to those of pure Horen descendant, ergo relinquishing any claimant the branches of the House of Horen. Such examples of invalid branches include that of Horen-Marna, Horen-Cantal, Jrent, etc. Those who are of pure Horen, and, or, legitimised into the pure-blooded succession of Horen, may pose a claim to the House of Horen and a claimant to the Dual Monarchy of Renatus-Marna. Such legitimization applies to both bastards and those within Horen branches. In the event of the Monarch passing, before he can name a claimant to the throne, a succession crisis occurs, and it falls to the Privy Council of the Dual Monarchy to back the eldest child of the previous reigning Monarch. Therefore, the throne is never vacant, and absolute coronation isn’t a necessity for one to take the Crown of Renatus-Marna. INCUMBENT MONARCH: Aurelius I Horen Formerly Canonius I Horen HEIR APPARENT: Catherine Horen, second daughter of Victor Frederick of Marna. In the event of both the Monarch and the Heir Apparents death, then the line of succession is as followed, personally selected in the event of an absolute crisis by the crowned Monarch of Renatus-Marna. Likewise, in the case of a female heir apparent, her Highness shall retain inheritance until the next male in succession is of 16 years of age. I. His Royal Highness, Augustus Horen, first son of Antonius Horen. II. His Royal Highness, Antonius Horen, second son of Aurelius I Horen. III. His Royal Highness, Charles Elliot of the House of Horen, third son of Peter II Sigismund. VI. His Royal Highness, Jon Renault Horen, second son of Peter II Sigismund. V. His Royal Highness, Frederick Pius Horen, first son of Victor Frederick of Marna. VII. Her Royal Highness, Aloisia of the House of Horen, third daughter of His Grace, Philip Louis.
  5.

  6. THE MUNICIPAL ONE DROP ACT Issued and Confirmed by His Honor, Godwyn Crast, Mayor of Senntisten, 11th of Snow's Maiden, 1649 With the legalization of slavery in the most Holy Kingdom of Marna. We the City Council of Senntisten, believe that slaves should be classified by race. Humanity is the most paramount race within the most holy Kingdom and Capital. Thus the City Council has come to the conclusion that no pure Human will ever be found in the Capital, serving as a slave to another Human. Non-Humans are, clearly, free to be taken and taught the ‘ways of the trade’ as it were. However, the actions of taking potential slaves, must not occur in the public, this will disrupt the peace brought by the Free Company and Order of Saint Lucien. To clarify further, all potentials, must be taken captive either outside the walls of Senntisten or hidden from the public. There is a gray area, which we the good City Council of Senntisten would like to clarify; Half-Humans are inherently abominations, and as such will be allowed to be serve as slaves, within the holy Capital. The Free Company and Order of Saint Lucien may request to learn about the heritage of any civilian within the walls of Senntisten, if found guilty of being a half-Human, the Free Company or Order may forcefully enslave the specimen or auction it. It is important to record this Nations legacy, and it is why, from this day and on, that all new slaves must be registered in the City Hall or by a licensed steward. The purpose of this is not purely for documentation, it is also serves as a recorder of the slaves identity, should the specimen decide to abandon their owners. Slaves who have abandoned their owners, but have been collected back, are to be punished at the discretion of their owners. In short, freedmen who own slaves, may do what they wish with their property, and even order them to do anything they wish, as long as it does not break the law.
  7. The Royal Marnan Election Results of 1648 Issued and confirmed by his Majesty, Frederick I Pius of Marna, 13th of Malin’s Welcome, 1648 As the First set of Marnan elections draws to a concise end, the Crown has seen fit to publish its results. It should be noted that, following this pretext, all election results shall become instituted into law. Further elaborations may occur in future documentation, however these results, stamped with the seal of the Marnan government, are thusly now enforced by law. Furthermore, it should be noted that some votes were not counted due to the improper filing and a lack of following instructions. Likewise, it should also be noted that for measures pertaining to law, abstains have been added unto “YES”, for abstaining implies complicity as, if someone did not truly want the measure to be passed, they would have simply voted “NO”.

    The Royal Marnan Tax Code

    The Royal Marnan Tax Code Issued and confirmed by his Excellency, Ser Henry Frederick d’Anpalais, 10th of Snow Maiden, 1647 The Apostolic Kingdom pertains two prevalent taxation systems, which are henceforth in effect within the borders of Marna. Taxation provides the Crown with a consistent fund to better the Apostolic Kingdom, thereby benefiting the overall engagement and development of Marna. City Taxes Feudal Taxes I. City Taxes are placed upon various expenditures within the capital, Senntisten. This includes albeit it’s not limited to: mining, housing, and land. City Taxes may be subject to change. Currently the active CITY TAX(ES) within the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna are as followed: Mining Tax: The use of the mine, situated outside of the capital, is taxed. To receive access to the shaft - accessing keys - then they must provide twenty four units of iron to the crown per saints week. To acquire access to the mines one must speak to the Treasurer. Failure to consistently provide appropriate tax to the Crown will result in restriction to the mine shaft. II. Feudal Taxes are the taxes placed upon the landed nobles of the Kingdom, the tax is a variable that changes depending upon your service to the Crown as well as the size of the nobles demesne. Failure to provide the tax to the Crown will result in punishment which is dependant on the severity of the tax evasion. Currently the active FEUDAL TAX(ES) within the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna are as follows: Free Settlements and Barons: If one-hundred able-bodied men, or more, are provided to the war efforts then they will be exempt from any feudal taxes. However, if less are provided then they will be subject to pay a tax of 300 mina to the Crown or its value in assets. If less than half the quota is provided than they will be subject to pay a tax of 500 mina to the Crown or its value in assets. Counties: If one-hundred and fifty able-bodied men, or more, are provided to the war efforts then they will be exempt from any feudal taxes. However, if less are provided then they will be subject to pay a tax of 500 mina to the Crown or its value in assets. If less than half the quota is provided than they will be subject to pay a tax of 700 mina to the Crown or its value in assets. Duchies: If two-hundred able-bodied men, or more, are provided to the war efforts then they will be exempt from any feudal taxes. However, if less are provided then they will be subject to pay a tax of 700 mina to the Crown or its value in items. If less than half the quota is provided than they will be subject to pay a tax of 900 mina to the Crown or its value in assets. Feudal taxes are an important necessity, which will be collected via the Lord Treasurer, from the landed nobles of the Kingdom before, during, or after war or conflict to help fund, repair or generally assist in war efforts. Alternatively, a tax can be requested upon His Majesty's will. All taxes gathered are handed straight to the Crown, failure to do this will result in the collector to be branded as a thief and insubordinate to the Crown. Theft will result in imprisonment within San Marnantine State Penitentiary, or ultimately, execution. God With Us, His Majesty, Frederick Pius of Marna, Apostolic King of Marna, Rhodesia and Waldenia, Duke of Senntisten and Defender of Rhodesia and the Faith, Brother of Saint Lucien His Excellency, Ser Henry Frederick d’Anpalais, Baron of Marsen, Lord Treasurer and Knight of the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna.
  12. Opinions from the Throne I The Elven Conundrum Issued and confirmed by his Majesty, Frederick I Pius, 8th of the Amber Cold, 1646. Greetings to the fair Human citizens of Marna, and Humans across Atlas, I, Frederick Pius, better known as “Mauer”, issue this document to the public in hopes of shedding light regarding the opinion of the Marnan Crown in this time of crisis. We humans are mortals, destined to live for an allocated period of time. A sliver in the lifespan of the other races. For a single elf, twelve human generations may pass before they too meet their maker in the nether. However, the short time allocated unto humanity as part of the curse of Iblees has had the reverse intended effect. Iblees hoped to corrupt humanity by making us mortal- an eternal punishment. Instead, this curse only made us stronger. It made our peoples active, aspiring and thirsting for greatness. As such, in the lifespan of one human, through their will, despite their lives being a mere sliver in time, the world could be changed forever for the good of humanity. History showed unto us the greatness of our third prophet, Godfrey, and his formation of Empire. We look to the deeds of Saint Peter, and how his order, alongside my ancestor, Horen the Black, sacked Malinor and brought humanity to the greatest power it had ever been. Thus, I must explain with absolute clarity, the graveness of the slight the Princess of the Dominion hath casted onto humanity. According to my wife, my dear queen Henrietta, her escort to the Elven coronation, and his Holiness himself, the elves seek an empire under the name of the Dominion. This empire would hold the factions of all elf-kin, and, reportedly, the elf Princess proclaimed the that the world was to be guided under the Aspects. This quest to spread Aspectism globally poses a major threat to Canonism and all the faithful upon Atlas. The Aspects, or spirits, as prescribed by the Exalted Owyn, are a paganic entity which elves falsely follow. Elves claim that they are real, and physical, which I’ve no doubt to be true. However, GOD too, is real. These aspects are not omnipotent, they are not omnipresent. They are deceivers, and should be treated akin to that of Iblees. And though the Dominion may permit the establishment of a Church, as stated by Prince Khaine, I trust in the words of his female diplomat moreso. The elves are guided by the aspects, and will never under any circumstance convert. This sickens me, for I am not only the Apostolic king, but also a direct descendent of Horen. The title of 'Emperor' is reserved for humanity and the heirs of the Prophets. Those who were not of Horen blood yet ruled over the empire of men did such only on the blessings of house Horen, as seen with Emperor Peter the Kaedreni being appointed by the spirit of the Prophet Godfrey. Empires that did not receive this blessing were crushed by those who shared the ideals of Horen. Let us not forget that before the Prophet Godfrey, the elves were the dominant faction on this plane. It was only humanity that had the metaphorical grapes to seize freedom from elfen-kin. Horen blood is divine, by right, and to even consider challenging the title of Empire before those of Horen and humanity is a slap in the face, if not a stab in the gut. Thus, I proclaim any attempt by the dominion to centralize and formulate a unified elven empire to be an immediate threat to the Canonist Faith, the Nations of Humanity, and, most importantly, Humans everywhere. Though they may act as pacifists today, once they grow confident, they will demand our conversion and territory tomorrow. If they seek peace, they MUST admonish their quest and rescind the goals of their Princess. To offset this centralization, I also call for an IMMEDIATE convening of the leaders of mankind to join blades in the formation of the COMMONWEALTH OF MAN. The time for a Human Empire has not come, nay, but unity in some capacity has. GOD wills it. God With Us, His Majesty, Frederick Pius of Marna, Apostolic King of Marna, Rhodesia and Waldenia, Duke of Senntisten and Defender of Rhodesia and the Faith, Brother of Saint Lucien
  13. Senntisten Mayoral Elections, 1646 Issued and confirmed by his majesty, Frederick Pius Horen-Marna, 10th of Malin's Welcome, 1646. As the Sky-Daemon bubble’s burst nears, so does Marna’s need for a larger civilian government. The City of Senntisten is large, and the government of Marna cannot micromanage it in the coming conflicts. Marna is an army disguised as a nation, meaning that once the coming wars begin, the national government will become focused on warfare rather than domestic governance. Thus, it is imperative that those who aspire a larger role within the Government, or an opportunity to partake in it, provide their name for candidacy in the coming Senntisten mayoral elections. If one wishes to become the Mayor of Senntisten, they will be granted the ability to manage the stewards, tax codes, building regulations, etc. The mayor will be entrusted with the civil duty of governing the Capital in the name of his Majesty, Frederick Pius and that of the Church, for Senntisten remains the holy city. Thus, the major factions that the Mayor will be interacting with will include that of the civilian populace, local businesses, the Order of Saint Lucien, and his Majesty’s Marnan Free Company of Civilian Soldiers. If one wishes to aid in the constructing of a proper civilian populace, they are most welcome. Requirements for becoming a candidate for the upcoming mayoral elections (which will take place on the Bicentennial of the founding of the Order of Saint Lucien) are as followed: One must be a Human. One must be a Canonist. One must be a citizen of Marna. One must own property within Marna. One must not have a criminal record within Marna. Mayoral Candidate Form Name: Religion: Nationality (Marnan, Renatian, etc.): Property Holdings (the property you own): Age: Race: Gender: Experience: God With Us, His Majesty, Frederick Pius of Marna, Apostolic King of Marna, Rhodesia and Waldenia, Duke of Senntisten and Defender of Rhodesia and the Faith, Brother of Saint Lucien

    Military Mandates I

    MILITUM DECRETIUM MARNA Mandates for the Armies of the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna Field Marshal Marcus Arminius Rovin FIRST ORDER Establishment of Force Requirements All settlements and castles shall be required to equip and upkeep a levy during times of warfare. Free settlements and barons shall be required to muster and equip a levy of no less than one-hundred able-bodied men. Counties shall be required to muster and equip a levy of no less than one-hundred and fifty able-bodied men, and no less than fifty men per settlement or barony within the county. Duchies shall be required to muster and equip a levy of no less than two-hundred men, but shall provide a minimum of one-hundred men per county within the duchy. All forces shall be comprised of able-bodied men of no younger than fourteen years. Each man shall be able to bare arms and hold in formation for no less than two hours and be capable of maintaining a day’s march. To maintain the First Order, the Grand Marshal shall conduct Martial Review over the forces. On every even year, the forces of the realm shall be individually checked to ensure arms, armour, and other logistical measures are adequately set and kept within the land. Failure to pass inspection shall result in the penalization of prestige and put forth risk of rank, title, and privilege. SECOND ORDER Establishment of Lesser Positions and Authority Marshal of the Apostolic Kingdom The title of Marshal is established as the highest authority and honor bestowed upon those who show their strategic and tactical brilliance and understanding of warfare at an awesome level. Those entitled with this honor shall have the added responsibility of leading the soldiers of the realm into battle. The only figures who shall trump their authority will be the King and his Field Marshal, respectively. Symbolizing their status as elite generals, Marshals of the Apostolic Kingdom shall be bestowed onto them a special baton of burgundy-laced ivory. Only with this baton shall the Marshal exert their power and status, and to lose to the hands of the enemy will be regarded as a great dishonor. Brigadier of the Marnan Free Company The rank of Brigadier shall be created to be bestowed upon the leader of His Majesty’s Marnan Free Company— an organization of citizen-soldiers who are raised during times of war and great trouble. The Brigadier shall have the responsibility to maintain his citizen-soldiers, ensuring their training, equipment, and esprit de corps remain at optimal levels. With this, the Brigadier shall have direct authority over the operations and conduct of the Free Company. Symbolizing his authority, the Brigadier of the Marnan Free Company shall receive an engraved iron baton. With this baton, he shall be able to raise the Free Company during the peacetime without the orders of the King. To lose the baton to the hands of the enemy will be regarded as a great dishonor. Colonel The rank of Colonel shall be established as the fourth tier of royal high command, under that of the Field Marshal, his Marshals, and the Brigadier of the Free Company. Colonel is the rank given by the Office of the Field Marshal to three categories of commanders: the leaders of vassal levies, the leaders of vassal retinues, and the leaders of independent military organizations. Colonels only have authority over their respective fighters, save the instance which makes them the highest authority in an area of combat. To mark their status, Colonels shall be bestowed upon them a golden badge of bearing the King’s seal. The cross on the seal shall be painted red. It is with this badge that Colonels may seek audience with the Field Marshal or cross into the Crownlands with an entourage. THIRD ORDER On the Establishment of Military Guilds and Organizations The establishment of militant guilds and organizations within the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna shall fall under two categories of classification: those who have permanent residence in the Kingdom as a result of obtaining the Royal Military Writ of Establishment, chartering their headquarters within the borders, and those who have obtained the Royal Military Writ of Tolerance, granting only the means for a guildhouse or place of business. Royal Military Writs of Establishment shall be awarded to militant organizations who wish to reside in the Crownlands. In exchange for oaths of fealty, these organizations may establish a headquarters and recruit from the freemen in the land. For organizational purposes, their leaders shall be referred to by the Royal Administration as colonels. Those with such a writ shall be required to provide their entire force to the realm during wartime, but shall be free to embark on mercantile efforts during the peacetime. Such organizations shall be inspected during every odd year by the Field Marshal. Royal Military Writs of Tolerance shall be awarded to militant organizations with origins outside of the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna. These organizations shall have the ability to conduct business within the borders and operate a guildhouse, but will have no rights to recruitment or be included in the hierarchy of Marnantine forces. FOURTH ORDER On Issuing Letters of Marque and Reprisal In order to maintain flexible and covert operations over the enemies of the Apostolic Kingdom, the establishment of Royal Letters of Marque and Reprisal shall be immediate. For a set bounty, the Apostolic Kingdom shall issue a letter of marque to a militant organization so they may carry out the terms of the bounty beyond the territory of the Kingdom. Letters of Marque shall allow the holder to seize and repossess all goods captured from enemy forces during the completion of a bounty. Bounties shall be negotiated between the King or Office of the Field Marshal with the letter petitioner. Letters of Marque shall be granted for three-year terms. Failure to complete the bounty shall result in an issued fine at one-hundred and fifty percent the value of the bounty. Letters of Marque, and subsequently holders of the letters, shall not attack allies of the Apostolic Kingdom while in its service. God With Us, His Majesty, Frederick Pius of Marna, Apostolic King of Marna, Rhodesia and Waldenia, Duke of Senntisten and Defender of Rhodesia and the Faith, Brother of Saint Lucien His Excellency, Marcus Arminius Rovin, Field Marshal of the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna, Brother of Saint Lucien

    The Royal Marnan Kingsguard

    His Majesty's Royal Marnan Kingsguard Issued and confirmed by his Royal Majesty, Frederick Pius of Marna, 10th of the First Seed, 1646 The Royal Marnan Kingsguard (RMK) is the elite secular fighting force within the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna. The membership of the Kingsguard consists of the most dedicated and loyal knights within Marna, meaning its members are expected to be highly proficient in combat, reliable shields or top level resource acquirers. The duties of the Royal Marnan Kingsguard, naturally, include the guarding of the Royal Family and the palace of Ard’Arrav. Similarly, those in the Royal Marnan Kingsguard act as the King’s personal combat unit, meaning that the Kingsguard are tasked solely, or in junction with the Marnan Free Company, to undertake military action upon foreign or domestic enemies. UNIFORM Each member of the Kingsguard is equipped with a full set of darkened platemail, an underlying gambeson, and a Waldenian style combat helmet. Upon their breastplate rests the Gold and Crimson badge of Marna, which allows members of the Kingsguard to showcase their dedication to home and country as well as to provide easy identification for those who might see them. The design of the Kingsguard uniform is intended to provide the sense of unity, intimidation, facelessness, and prowess within the Kingdom of Marna. It should be noted, however, that some members of the Kingsguard are permitted to customize their uniform to how they see fit only with the permission of the King himself.
