Welcome to the Cavalry!!!!!

 

*sets off fireworks and fountains of Bandy (the non-spill edition)*

 

Congratulations on your fabulous choice and impeccable taste in choosing to join us!

 

So, now that you are here, what do you do? Well! You pick on our CG, you dodge spotfines, you drink, you brawl, you fight for the members of your regiment and of the Band, you uphold the code of chivalry, you have bucket loads of fun, but the most prestigious task of all, is to work your way towards Knighthood!

 

'How do I do all this?' I hear you demand with wonder alight in your eyes. Well your first step is to check out all the threads pinned at the top of this board! They're packed with information about the Cavalry, about Knighthood and the process of getting there. All you need to know about the Cavalry and threads that will be useful to you are in one of these threads, what I have now dubbed the Guide to Surviving the Cavalry:

 

Information to the Knight Program

 

So, your first job is to read through the information to the Knight Program thread. After reading the information thread; PM the current CG because as of joining the Cavalry, you have become a Page! Please sign into the Page reporting thread (will be created in the near future). After finishing the Page program you'll be eligible for Squirehood. Please sign into the Squire reporting thread after (will be created in the near future).

 

If you have any questions or concerns, you can PM the CG or MG or any member of the Cavalry and they will help you out.

 

Have fun, and welcome to the Cavalry!

Once you have chosen the glorious regiment of the Cavalry, you become eligible for Knighthood. That means your own named horse and have a knight of your own who will lead you into Knighthood! Before you get that far though, you must go through this system.

After finishing the Page program, you will be eligible to become a Knight of the Cavalry. This will state the Knights that are available to mentor you through your Squire period. To become a Knight you will need to have achieved the rank of Under-Lieutenant (45 Org Points)

 

Sign in to the monthly Roll Call (on the Campfires board) 3 months in a row

- Play a prank on a fellow Cav member

- Make a motto for the Cavalry and must be Cavalry inspired

Choose your Knight and with them complete:

- Your Squire Vigil

- A Joust

- A task of their choosing

 

A Squire Vigil thread will be set up for you and your Knight to get to know each other. Each of you will ask the other 10 questions, they can be on anything however the last question asked by the Knight must be 'What do you expect of me as your Knight' and the last question asked by the Squire must be 'What do you expect of me as your Squire'. Please note that at the end of the vigil you will need to write a minimum of 3 JotS verses based on the answers your Knight gave to the questions you asked. Your Knight will also write JotS verses based on the answers you gave.

 

The next step is the Joust! The Joustmaster will set up a joust for you and your Knight. This follows normal joust rules.

 

Once this is completed the Captain General will create a Knighting Ceremony if you have the required amount of points. Please note that you are not supposed to post in Ceremonies that are not your own until the Ceremony is over.

 

You are now officially a KNIGHT and can choose your horse and its name (or open a vote for people to choose your horses name)
