PostSubject: Thelgaard and Portsmith fortress   Sun Nov 06, 2011 5:15 am

A missive is sent to the senior Knight of the Rose and Second in command of the Fortress Thelgaard.

I will be periodically spending time away from Thelgaard on business for the country. During my time of absence you will be required to assume command of operations. I will oversee as much of the going ons within the walls of Thelgaard as I am capable, it is in the times of my absence that you will be required to assume the lead. As a frontier bastion, our focus will be placed on fortification, strengthening our numbers, and rigorous training. I am requesting of you a roster of the knights and military personnel stationed with our walls, their patrol patterns, Field commanders, and Captains. Accompanying this, I wish the merchant charters current enabled, a record of any merchants currently trading with our walls. Scouts are to be sent out in a ten mile radius of the walls to gather the status of the roads in and around Thelgaard, send this report once completed. I wish a status report of the military, this report is to include the strengths as well as the weaknesses of each man and woman assigned to us, delegate this to the Captains, as they will know those stationed under them the best. The Grandmaster has high expectations of us, and I will see that she is not disappointed.

As much of my time that can be spared will be spent within the walls of Thelgaard, but should you have any questions of me or concerns while I am away, please send word and I will respond in all haste.

Your brother in the Light

Damien Bishop
Knight Captain

With Veluthil, Dan, and Tim searching for the possible renegade mage, Damien found himself with little more to do at the moment, but to return to Thelgaard. There the Captain of the Guard released to him the reports he had requested.

The first report, in the pile, was from those send to scout the surrounding area. The roads teamed with bandits and highwaymen, something Bishop was well aware of, goblins were sighted as well. Orders were made, and handed off to the Captain standing at the wait, to increase the number and strength of the patrols sent out to safeguard the roads. Patrols would go as far as the marsh lands and Godsend, from the swamp to Portsmith would need to be patrolled by the garrison there.

A small book was then reviewed that cataloged the names and strengths of each of the men and women stationed within the walls. The fortress was well garrisoned and the soldiers and knights under his command were among the best, but as a frontier fort it may not be enough to withstand a heavy assault. Thus recruitment efforts would be made. A petition was written, and handed off to runners, calling on the surrounding towns and farming communities, asking if there be any able-bodied men and women willing to take up the standard of the Solamnic army.

In an effort to increase moral and as an incentive to increase the skill of those within the walls of Thelgaard, Damien pledged an additional three hundred thousand gold from his fortune, to be spread among the knight’s and soldier’s pay, for any who would accept additional combat training. These training programs will be held in the courtyard outside the Keep. The additional pay will be collected by the participants, upon successful completion of the course.



//OOC 300,000 gold was trashed to represent the gold paid to the soldiers.

Two days of festivities are held in celebration of new recruits who have taken up the call to join the other men-at-arms of the Keep, as well as the announcement of a new High Captain of the guard of Thelgaard.

With things coming along in Thelgaard, the increase in numbers, better arms and armament for his knights and soldiers, and the addition of members of the clergy from the churches of Paladine and Kiri-Jolith, Damien turned his attention to the warning he had been given by a head mistress of the Tower, Cassandra. He had met her on the road,giving him warning of a disturbance she felt would occur at Portsmith. The town relied on the support of the Knighthood, it would also cause a split in the nation if lost to the enemy, cutting off the High Clerist Tower and Palanthas off from Thelgaard, Salanthus, and Caergoth. Word was sent with runners to Portsmith informing them that, should a need arise, to call on Thelgaard for support. The number of scouts and patrols towards Portsmith were also increased.

Corporal Cal Hardwick had been given the task to patrol the roads between the Keep and Portsmith. He was assigned two soldiers who were to walk the roads with him.

Alan Smith - Son of a smith that excelled with the use of the longsword.
Jillian Ballard- A hunter that was exceptional with the bow.


Day after day the three of them walk the road and the surrounding areas. Jillian tracks the bandits to their hide outs and the Soldiers do what is necessary to stop their attacks upon those that make the roads unsafe. Every effort is made to capture them alive , to deliver them to the Keep to face Justice. In many cases however death could not be avoided.

Cal takes extra care to keep an eye out for anything unusual. Captain Bishop had mentioned something about a possible threat to Portsmith.

A missive sent to Thelgaard intended for Squire Cal Hardwick

Squire Hardwick

You no doubt have heard the reports of an attack on Portsmith recently. Due to this recent development and the sensitivity of what is at stake, I am summoning you to report for duty at Portsmith. You will be stationed there until further notice. The Black Talons will return, when they do they will be even stronger than their most recent attack. Send word should you need me.

Est Solarus oth Mithas
Knight Captain,
Damien Bishop
