- The old guard. If you were a member of the RBG (Royal Britannian Guard) you are considered to be a veteran. Your new sash will reflect this – e.g. Black Watch Captain (Veteran) You will need to prove your membership by showing your RBG sash at a Black Watch ceremony. This will give you a ten point bonus. Multiple sashes do not mean multiple bonuses.
- Every time you are promoted, you “spend” the number of points needed to get to your new rank. Take WyRm in the example below. He has a total of 44 points. His promotion from Soldier, 2nd class to Soldier, 1st class used 5 of those points, leaving him with 39 points. His next promotion, from Soldier, 2nd class to Second Lieutenant, used 10 points, leaving him with 29 points. His promotion to Lieutenant used 10 more points, leaving him with 19 points. He therefore needs one more point to make it to Captain.
- The only people receiving sashes today will be those who have applied to join the Black Watch, and who are present. If you have applied, but cannot be present, relax – let me know, and I will try to track you down in-game. Sashes will not be given to anyone other than the named character who applied to join.
- If you want to be in the Black Watch, you need to apply. Membership is not automatic, no matter how many events you turn up for. Full details, including how to earn points, are available here . I have kept records of players who turned up to events, but did not apply up till now, but I will not be updating those records after today. Bottom line, if you want to be in the Watch, make sure I know about it! (i.e. drop a book with your character’s name and something like “Black Watch Application” into the mailbox at the EM Hall near Brit moongate)
- There will be an official roll call at the start of all Black Watch events from now on so that I can better keep track of who gets points.My current “take a screenshot with all names showing” method is a bit too unreliable.
- The Rebellion (or whatever they want to be called) will get their ceremony sometime in the near future, as well as their sashes!
- We now have a headquarters! (Thank you Mesanna!!!) Some shadowy figure may have given a few players a preview of it last month, but we’ve dusted and cleaned, and it’s ready for you to crack open an ale and try out the facilities!
If anything else is unclear, please let me know. I will add to the FAQ as necessary. If you have suggestions, requests, ideas, or anything else, please let me know those, too! If you think something that I’ve posted about the Watch so far is completely insane, I want (need?) to hear that as well!
Lastly, here are the points which I currently have. These are the ranks that will be handed out at the first ceremony that you attend. These do NOT include veteran sashes. If you think you should be on the list, or think your points are horribly wrong, please contact me. If your name is on the list and you have no intention of joining, let me know that too.
So, here it is. (If the table below does not show up on Stratics, view it at siege.uoem.net. )
