*Basic Orders I Certification:
Attention!- All Militia will face towards the speaker, and emote *Stands at Attention* *snaps to* They are to stand ONE PACE in front of the caller.
Sound Off!- All Soldiers say their rank THEN name out loud. (CAPTAIN, VEIS DRIANCE)
Right/Left/About Face- These are the tricky ones. When ordered, you are to face the direction specified. So if you are facing north, and you are told to do Right Face, you turn east. If left face, you turn west. It's all relative to your character, not the player.
Single line- One line facing towards the formation leader, one pace in front.
Double Line- The line is split from a single line, to a double line, and it is to be lined up evenly. No lopsided lines boys and girls.
Double Column/Single Column!- if this is called, you are to Form a column. a column is like the opposite of a line. Instead of facing the broad side of the line, You instead face an end of the line. You form it facing the leader.
REFORM [Formation]- THIS IS IMPORTANT! WHEN THIS ORDER IS CALLED, YOU DO NOT RUN TO FORM UP IN FRONT OF, AND FACING THE FORMATION CALLER! INSTEAD, YOU CHANGE THE CURRENT FORMATION ON THE SPOT, FACING THE SAME DIRECTION!! Read this please!
Salute to the Front!- All soldiers salute to the front.
Parade Arms!- All men are to equip either: A Halberd for swordsmen, a Warhammer for macers, or a spear for fencers.
Ready Arms!- Go into warmode.
Forward March!- The formation will move as a whole in the specified direction, moving at one step per second. So you take a step, then say in your mind "one banana" then take another step. You are never to pass up the man in front of you.
March!- You follow the leader at a walk, always staying behind him!
*Basic Orders II Certification:
Soldier will have demonstrated mastery of all orders listed in Basic Orders I. Completion of Basic Orders II will include all previous orders, in addition to the following-
Forced March to [Location]- You sprint to the location, and form up upon arriving.
March at the Double!- You follow the leader at a run, keeping behind him
Rearguard!- You tell a man to be rearguard, and he is responsible for staying in the rear of the group on the march, making sure people don't fall behind.
Halt!- Stop marchin'.
Take Cover- All men scatter and take cover.
Ranged- Arm ranged weapons, All militia should carry a bow and arrows on them. even if you have no skill.
Ambush- All men scatter, take out ranged weapons and hide.
At Ease- All men relax. Use emotes such as * leans on weapon* *Relaxes stance* *stands loosely*, May shift their position in line, such as turning, and may speak freely.
Skirmish- use anti greifer tactics, or if fighting orcs, break all formations and pursue targets as you see fit.
Teach 'Em- Beat down the target.
Corpsman!- Use this to call out for aid when you are wounded. Similar to the *bleedz* of the orcs.
*CRUSH*- The group will surround a target. Once a member of the group is in place, he does not move for ANYTHING. The rest will fill the remaining 3 spots around the target and box him in. This is the same as the orc “Krimp” and is an invaluable skill in field situations.
