    Current status of Guard Applications: Open

    Application Requirements

    The Regalian City Guard Application Thread governs the applications to be permitted to play a Regalian Guard. Applications are based on players, not characters. That is to say, players can apply for themselves without any specific Character, and if they are approved, may make any character after approval to join the Guard. Even if that Character then resigns from the guard, they may make another, indefinitely, or until the permission to make Guard Characters is revoked. Unlike Special Permissions also, Argumentation or further information for these applications are not required. We as Lore Staff only verify the following:
    • The player is not a rule breaker, power gamer, or someone who has a difficult relationship with Abilities, or fair combat roleplay. The player must also not have broken any server rules in the last 3 months.
    • The player is known to be a positive person, someone with solution-orientation, someone who does not meme at the expense of others, and gives generally enjoyable roleplay experiences devoid of fail-rp.
    Activity is not factored into Quality Assessment, because individual characteristics are more important than activity for Guard Applications. It is always assumed that activity comes after approval. That being said, activity does factor into Guards keeping their jobs. Characters who become inactive receive a warning, after which they are dismissed from the guard and have to make a new character, or re-up their activity before approval. In any and all cases, the Lord Commander must approve an application to the Guard for IC reasons, even if a player was OOC given permission by Lore Staff to have a Guard Character. Lore Staff will also enforce an absolute maximum to the number of guards, and as such, if that number is reached, Lore Staff will force the Lord Commander to decline incoming applications.

    The Exception of Nobility
    Nobility are the exception to the rule, because some things differ for them.
    • Noble Title holders have automatic Guard Approval, but only for their Title holder character.
    • Non-Title holding nobles do not have automatic Guard Approval, but if they use their Noble Character to join the Guard, then they do fall under the Noble Guard Stipulation.
    • In any and all cases Title or Title-less Nobles applying for the City Guard, if approved, become so called "Honor Guard". Honor Guard have a special armor distinction with gold lining, and act somewhat differently.
    • Honor Guard cannot be commanded to do things by other Nobles (Nobles are permitted to command City Guard to do things by Law).
    • Honor Guard also can be commanded by the Lord Commander, and is also subject to the Reeve's Office disciplinary board.
    • Honor Guard are not part of the general Guard Rank structure, and as such, cannot earn additional aesthetic ranks in the Guard.
    The Application Process
    The Application process is very straightforward, but may take a bit of time. In order to get an application properly processed, it must be formatted a certain way so it can be pushed through to Lore Staff Meetings:
    • Mention your Username.
    • Mention which Character you would like to make a Guard, or whether you would like to make a new Character. Do not apply just to have Guard clearance unless you intend to play a Guard immediately.
    • @tag @fantuinn
    The Process goes something like this:
    1. Your Application is checked by fantuinn and sent on to Lore Staff Meetings every Sunday. Applications arriving after midnight Saturday, whatever time zone, will bounce to next week.
    2. Your Application is reviewed by the whole of Lore Staff. In order for your application to be approved, at least 2 Lore Staff Members must speak out positively. If 2 or more Lore Staff members make objections, the Application is denied.
    3. If you are accepted, you will be notified on this thread by fantuinn. At that point, you may either make or use a character to apply for a Guard position direction to the Lord Commander.
    4. At this point, the Lord Commander can still make an IC decision to decline your character for whatever reason (Race, dislike IC, ban on recruitment) but may never decline an application for OOC reasons.
    5. If you are rejected, your name will not be included in the weekly approval listing posted every Sunday. Unlike Special Permissions, you will not be contacted as to why, since there are only two reasons: Either you break roleplay ethical rules, or you break ooc social behavior rules. If you wish to speak more in detail about the rejection however, you are welcome to send a Bot Ticket to the RP Com Discord Ticket Bot.
    6. If at any point your character goes inactive, the Lord Commander will usually make note to the Lore Staff, who perform an activity check. If you are not active, you will receive a warning. If you are not active again several weeks later, your character is removed from the guard. You still OOC have the right to join the guard, that Character was just discharged from the Guard for not showing up for work.
    7. If at any point you violate the code of conduct for guard (with regards to decent RP and decent OOC behavior), you will be forcibly ejected from the guard, and your right to make a new Guard Character revoked, applications therefor being banned for 3 months, after which you may re-apply.
    8. Honor Guard, especially Title Holders, are not immune from being ejected from the Guard for inactivity. They may also be barred from making Guard Characters for ill behavior, but other consequences are usually attached to that in the world system.
    9. Having a Special Permission does not permit you automatic Guard approval.
    Note, Applications are only for actual Guards, that is to say, people who don the armor and weapon(s), and patrol the streets and enforce Regalian Law. Positions such as duty clerks, medics and craftsmen are not regulated by the Guard itself, but by specific Requisition Officers appointed by the Lord Commander. The following positions exist in and around the Guard that have nothing to do with Guarding:
    • The Medical Requisition Officer (Medical Officer for short) is responsible for maintaining the Guard Medic Corps. The Guard Medic Corps are responsible for medical assistance in Greygate Isle, as well as field-Medical duties to Guards, but also curing of any Affliction they can and are commanded to do. The Guard Medic Corps can be commanded by any City Guard. The Medical Officer can both be a Guard, or a civilian, and grants access to all parts of the prison, but not armor and weapon permits, nor the right to enforce the law. This position can freely be hired and fired by the Lord Commander and is considered part of the Lord Commander's cabinet (so if a new Commander is voted in, this position is expected to be vacated for someone else).
    • The Crafts Requisition Officer (Crafts Officer for short) is responsible for managing the businesses and logistics of the Guard. This can include a forge that works for the guards, as well as managing the Artifact Storage of the Guard. The Crafts Officer should also OOC communicate with the World Staff when new Guard Offices and Rooms are required. They should also manage the report storage for Crimes and bring forth documentation during trials where necessary. The Crafts Officer also manages demolition experts, when they are required in the field, to demolish an entryway through either explosives or battering ram. The Crafts Officer can both be a Guard, or a civilian, and grants access to all parts of the prison, but not armor and weapon permits, nor the right to enforce the law. This position can freely be hired and fired by the Lord Commander and is considered part of the Lord Commander's cabinet (so if a new Commander is voted in, this position is expected to be vacated for someone else).
    • The Reeve's Office is responsible for managing guard-to-guard, guard-tp-commander, guard-to-civilian and all reverse conflicts that may arise, but also acts as a reporting point for any Guard abuse, violation of Guard rules, or general misbehavior from anyone beholden to the Guard. The Reeve's Office is always appointed by the Emperor, but they may have up to 2 Clerks that work at the Reeve's Office to delegate work towards, those two are appointed by the Lord Commander. The Reeve's Office is inherently a conciliatory institution meaning that, even though the Reeve has the right to suspend Guards for investigation, they primarily work to compromise and resolve issues, instead of outright punishing them. Punishment is dealt with separately through Court Martial matters sent to the Military Commissioner, who is beholden to the Lord Chancellor.
    As a Guard:
    • Guards have an automatic right to armor and weapon permits outside of the Guard, but may only enforce Regalian Law while in Guard Armor.
    • Guards may customize their Guard Armor with a unique sash and brooch on their Armor. Guards may also unionize within the Guard by forming social groups, but Chapters are abolished and all Guards are a member of the unified Guard Force, serving under one Lord Commander.
    • Guards may vote for a Lord Commander. Every 2 weeks, Guards must hold a Common Meeting in the Grand Hall of Greygate, the exact date and time of which is set by the Lord Commander, or the Reeve if there is no Lord Commander. During this meeting, each Guard has a right to 1 vote, if they are present. A new Lord Commander can be appointed if they have 50%+1 of the total votes present.
    • A Lord Commander may also be removed during a Common Meeting, if at least 3 guards wish to call for an impeachment. Impeachment is verified if at least 60%+1 of the present votes are in favor of removing the Lord Commander, after which an immediate vote is called for their replacement.
    • Common Meetings are there to discuss City-wide matters, as well as ongoing investigations or major events upcoming for the Guards.
    • Every second Common Meeting is instead an Imperial Meeting, where the Emperor will be present. For all intents and purposes, this is a Common Meeting, but the Lord Commander should also take some time out of the itinerary of the Common Meeting to inform the Emperor about the state of business of the city, the levels of crime, the mood of the people, et cetera.
    • Each Guard is permitted a Guard Quarter at Greygate Prison Castle. Included in their Guard Quarter is a chest which contains a full set of collectible Lore Armor set that they can keep when they leave the Guard.
    • Guards receive free drinks and food at the Golden Obscura, a fine Drinks/Food/Company establishment near Greygate, which is also where the Reeve operates from.
    • City Guards are the only individuals besides Imperial Guard who may show up with armor and weapons at Regalian Assemblies. House Guards may show up and sit in booths, but not with armor or weapons.
    • City Guards may shut down any building (aside from a Noble Estate) for investigation, as long as they are inside of it, and finish their investigation within 2 hours. Leaving the building ends closure.
    • The City Guard have honorary ranks. They don't actually mean anything in the hierarchy, besides respect. Those with a higher rank are expected to be respected more by the lower ranks due to their seniority in prestige, even if it grants them no further right to command other guards. The Lord Commander ranks and de-ranks members at will and at their discretion, the following ranks exist: Recruit Guard, Commons Guard, Ranks Guard, Higher Guard, Prestige Guard. Honor Guard are technically level with Prestige Guard, but since Honor Guard are not part of the standard recruit hierarchy, they cannot ever be anything but Honor Guard.

    - My name is Cipherition, and I intend to make Isabelle Cadieux an Honor "Guard" (she's really just a medic, but i think guard charters need medics so there's that). I have never played a guard before. Ever.

    @Goldifish
    Approved.

    @MrNoot1
    Rejected.

    @Yigit
    Approved.

    @Cipherition
    Rejected, though only because you are not supposed to apply for Medics on this page. Wait until the Medical Requisitions Officer is appointed by the Lord Commander.

    • My username is HeyItzAPotato. The character I wish to make a guard is Taeron Fa'Salor. He was apart of the Ivory Company, but just recently left. I don't feel like he belongs there amongst the mercenaries. I was hoping he could be a guard instead.
