Starting in March Napa Valley will have a new promotion system active to help not only enrich our stories, but also to award people for their participation. Promotion ceremonies will be held every 6-7 months, with rewards handed out based on the rank you have achieved.

The Kingsguard are an elite faction of the Royal Britannian Guard tasked with the protection of King Blackthorn. Over the years, Britannia has seen: a King leave the land, a royal council murdered, a puppet of the Shadowlords control the land, and a Queen killed in front of us all. The Kingsguard is formed to prevent such things from ever happening in our land again.

Ranks:

Footman -Your duty is to run ahead to prepare the destination place for the Kingsguard

Squire - You are the shield bearer of a knight in the kinds guard. You also are their errand runner or servant

Knight-Errant - You wander the land in search of adventures to prove your virtue

Knight Bachelor - You have shown great service to the crown, and are recognized for your deeds.

Knight Banneret -You now lead your own troops into battle for the Kingsguard

Knight Sergeant - You have proven your worth amongst the Kingsguard, and are now involved in all decision making.

Knight Commander - Knight Commanders are leaders of the Kingsguard. You report to Commander Vesuvius directly.

Personal Guard of King Blackthorn - You have been handpicked for your exceptional service to personally guard the King.

You earn points in multiple ways:

Attending an event (Must be present for roll call)
Turning in a book with an event recap
Attending a Governor's meeting

1. Point totals needed for each rank are kept secret.
2. Ranks are scaled to become harder to obtain as you progress
3. Promotion ceremonies will be held around every 6-7 months.
4. Rollcall will occur at the beginning of every event
5. All events will now meet in the courtyard of Castle Blackthorn
6. Books can be submitted to the Mailbox at the EM Rewards Hall. (Location may change in the future)

I think this is an excellent way to encourage more people to come to your events and enhance the RP aspect that so many love. It's ideas like these that should not be overlooked! I wish this new system the best of luck!

REMINDER: Promotions are coming up on the 31st of July! Get those reports in for your extra points!

With the first promotion looming large, is it possible to get a list of promotions posted here after the ceremony? My absence next week is a very real possibility, and I would love to hear who all got promoted to which rank, to provide appropriate congratulations.

Is it also safe to assume that no report regarding promotions would be in order?

I think I can do that. After the promotions ill make a list of everyone who was promoted + also point out who still needs to pick up their promotion item.

Also, yes you are correct. There will be no need to do a report on the promotions :p
