The Royal Guard

Post by King Reinhardt on Sun Oct 09, 2011 1:13 am


The Royal Guard was first established near the the time of the creation of the faction. Its purpose is to defend the King both on the battlefield and on domestic soil. These soldiers of Acre are volunteers who have shown great interest in protecting the Monarch of Acre. These soldiers follow the King into battle whenever and wherever possible. They give the King their horse if his is downed and cover him and they hold the line until the rest of the group has successfully fallen back. They are Crusaders who have took the calling of not only the Crusade, but of the duty to protect their King.

Requirements:
- At least at the rank of Crusader Man at Arms
- Must have at least 5 riding (recommended: 6)
- Must have at least some 1-h weapon proficiency (recommended: 110+)
- Must have at least 2 shield skill (recommended: 4+)

Gear list
Helmets:

Any helmet permitted from this link (click). Preferably a knightly looking one.
Armor:

Armor for the Royal Guard troops should be Heraldic chainmail of any kind or White tunic over mail/White mail with surcoat. You are also permitted to use Heraldic Transitional and the gold and silver Churburg Cuirass.
Gauntlets:

Gauntlets used by the Royal Guard should be mail mittens, mail gauntlets, or for heavy, hourglass gauntlets.
Boots:

Boots can be mail boots, mail chausses, shynbaulds, or cased greaves.
Weaponry:

Weaponry can range from lances to throwing axes. Royal Guardsmen are permitted to use any lance, but preferably use one that can thrust as well as couch. Any other weapons, so long as they comply with the gear list of Acre, are permitted. However, we prefer the Royal Guardsmen to use a shield of sorts, and one-handers are preferred for sidearms.
Shields:

Shields used by the Royal Guard include the knightly heater shield or the horseman heater shield.
Horse:

The Destrier is the only horse used by the Royal Guard.

There aren't any squads. They're more or less useless.

Don't feel bad, Knightly Knight. The only reason Infantry are not the most useful for the Royal Guard is because I'm cav. I noticed that the infantry in the Royal Guard are often unable to fight with me.
