  2. The Rivian Watch Iure et dignitate gladii Preamble Following the martial traditions of old the House of Galbraith and its subjects must henceforth rely upon the staunch boisterous drive of the Rivian individual. It is due time for the formation of an official retinue, a force composed of the men who reside in the area that they shall protect, a band of strong Rivians tasked with the duty of defence. The Rivian Watch is the personal retinue of the Lords of Rivia, composed of a combination of Footmen, Longbowmen and Cavalry detachments. The Watch is tasked with the maintenance and policing of the Viscounty of Rivia. A martial profession is hailed as one of the staples of Rivian life and the most noble of tasks, hence why the creation of a retinue was so integral regarding the future of House Galbraith. For the poorer class service is a way to earn a living, for the more gentile it is an opportunity for social mobility. The Rivian Code “Viscount Robert dutifully responding to a dwarven incursion circa 1856” The Rivian code is the code by which every man of the Watch must remain stalwart and unyielding in his devotion to, for this is the foundation of their honour. I: Serve the liege lord in valour and faith. II: Perform scrupulously in thy feudal duties. III: Do not recoil before thy enemy. IV: Live by honour and for glory. V: Obey those placed in authority. Rank Structure “Kaer Coch circa 1856” The Officers Captain Second only to the Viscount himself the Captain’s duty is to lead the Watch with utmost resolve. The Captain of the Watch is the single most important individual within the rank structure occupied with the near sole leadership of the Watch itself. The Captain oversees the promotion and delegation of tasks within the retinue. The Master-At-Arms Tasked primarily with the command of recruitment efforts, the Master-At-Arms is one of the most essential roles that can be occupied. The Master-At-Arms organises trainings, general events and is responsible for the issuing of punishments ranging from flogging to hanging. Centenary Largely responsible for command on a day to day basis. The Centenaries are tasked with delegating patrols, events and leading groups of men. The Centenary is the backbone of the Officer corp and consists of some of the best leaders in the Watch. The Regulars Sergeant Seasoned veterans and men of strong stock, The Sergeants are the metaphorical whip wielded by the Master-At-Arms. They carry out the disciplinary actions most necessary within the Watch. Largely responsible for keeping the men in line and frequently leading small groups of men, the rank of Sergeant is populated by the aspiring leaders within the force. Man-At-Arms The skilled backbone of the Watch, fulfilling the role of the heavy infantry, skilled bowmen or agile Scout. They are the reliable men in which large amounts of trust is placed into by their commander. Footman The most populated of all the ranks in the Watch, A footman is expected to fulfil his duty to the best of his ability and greatly prove himself to ascend the ranks. Recruit Being the fresh recruits to the band, yet to prove themselves they are given the most inexpensive equipment, while Recruits are not paid they are provided with housing and tend to be the most eager to prove their worth in the eyes of their superiors. The Rivian Oath “A Knight performing the Rivian Oath” I ______ pledge to serve the Viscount of Rivia in valour and faith. I shall henceforth perform scrupulously in thy feudal duties. I pledge to never recoil before thy enemy. I pledge to live by honour and for glory. I shall obey those placed in authority above me without falter. In the name of GOD, I hereby dedicate myself to the Watch.

  6. THE YONG PING ARMY the Warriors of Yong Ping DEFINITION The People’s Army of Yong Ping, also named the Yong Ping Army, are a force of volunteering and conscripted citizens alongside allied mercenaries who have chosen to take up arms in the name of protecting the people of Yong Ping. Whether it be against an internal or external threat, the YPA and its Soldiers are purpose-trained to their specific duties. The most soldiers or regular ranks are familiarly known as Zhànshì or Lion Guard, whilst the commissioned officers are known as Guān or Dragon Guard. The Army has a strict code of honor, which all soldiers regardless of rank must follow. The soldiers stand as a representation of Yong Ping itself, alongside its history and its population. Hence they must portray utmost honor and bravery in every given scenario before them. The Yong Ping Army is divided into two Regiments. Those being the Zhànshì Regiment and the Bushi Regiment. The soldiers and officers of the Zhànshì Regiment specialize in siege work alongside community services, while the counterparts in the Bushi Regiment are trained and exercised specifically in the art of cavalry and tax collection. Both Regiments have a unique culture within them, yet follow the same ranking structure and code of honor: Their purpose is twofold; To serve and protect Yong Ping. HISTORY Formed as a defensive volunteer force conscripted from the City’s population, the Yong Ping Army has stood proudly as a protective barrier against all dangers and threats posed against the people of Yong Ping for many years. The Tianrui zhànshì have long stood a bulwark against that which would harm their people, serving as protectors and monster hunters in the past. With the growth of numbers in their countrymen joining them in the West though, they soon realized they alone could not uphold this duty alone. Tianrui Ren saw to the establishment and training of a civilian defense force in their then resident district in Talon's Port, a group which would be known as the Tai Ping People's Army. The militia at the time was aided in numbers as needed by the Icathian Company, an ally who continues to stand by Yong Ping and her people in valued service to this day. With an even further surge in population and founding of Yong Ping, the YPA was formally established and the handbook written as a guide of conduct and service for all enlisted. New supply requisition was contracted out to the local San Xiong Di Company, outfitting the ranks with the finest the city had to offer. It was also during this time that two main regiments were established. The Zhànshì, a regiment of Li-Ren under the command of then Duhu Tinarui Ren specializing in siege equipment and civil service; and the Bushi, a regiment of Oyashimans under the command of then Sōchō Masamune Musashi specializing in cavalry and tax collection. Whilst specializing in different categories, the two served the same purpose and remain flexible in duty to fill needs as required. In modern Yong Ping, the Zhànshì regiment serves as the sole pillar of the YPA in both law enforcement and city defense under the command of Duhu Tianrui Ryu. Stationed in the east wall side Long Keep, the crimson and gold uniform can be seen patrolling all districts as symbols of safety and security in the Jade State. BENEFITS After joining the Army of Yong Ping, the soldiers receive a number of benefits. These are: ⦁ A tax reduction for housing within Yong Ping ⦁ Yearly payment in form of minae ⦁ Free healthcare for treatments of any kind ⦁ Material benefits for the soldier’s specific needs ⦁ Free equipment maintained by the Army ⦁ Access to facilities and amenities of Long Keep HOW TO JOIN To join the Yong Ping Army, fill out the following form with your information: Minecraft Username: Discord Username: (Can be omitted from public application if sent via forum PM) Character Name: Character Age: Citizenship: (Yes/No) Reason for application:
