1.1 Overview

On the north-west coast of Britannia lies a small town shrouded in forest. To the casual observer it may seem a quiet place. Simple people can be seen going about their daily business; perhaps cutting logs, rearing sheep or catching fish. However, not all is as it seems. The trees of Yew hold all kinds of folk. There are honest craftsman and traders, simply trying to carve out a living. Alongside them are criminal folks for whom isolated little Yew makes a tempting hunting ground. Then there are rumours, which speak of something far worse: of men who dabble in the black arts...

The Citizen System is an opportunity to play a character that doesn't fit within the normal realm of the Militia. This could be an ordinary civilian character, a criminal or even a wytch. We hope that these characters can be an exciting and entertaining addition to Yew.

1.2 What kind of characters can I play?

Anything that might fit within a low fantasy setting is possible: Craftsmen, Sailors, Brigands and Orcs are all perfect examples of what you can play. Noble Paladins and Daemon Lords on the other hand are prime example of what you cannot play.

The decision on whether your character is suitable or not will ultimately rest with your recruiter, however having a well thought our description of what you’re character will be and do will greatly increase you’re chances of gaining entry.

1.3 Are there any limitations on skills?

The following skills are restricted; if you wish to use them you will need to put forward an application to the Citizen Team.


If you wish to create a character that will use these skills, please contact a member of the Citizen Team.

1.4 Are there any limitations on equipment?

We are fairly keen to allow you as much scope for creativity as possible, however to protect against the more immature players that may join the system we are putting some basic guidelines in place. Please note some of these guidelines can be exceeded with copper purchases.

Physical Resist on armour must not exceed 55
Bronze Weapons are the maximum you are permitted
Horses are forbidden
The LoW must be followed at all times

1.5 Copper System?

The copper system currently used by Citizens and Guardsmen will continue to be open to Citizens, however they will no be given their own list of possible rewards to purchase. It’s currently undecided what exactly you will be able to purchase and the list may not be released for some time,

1.6 Citizen Team

A new Citizen Team is being formed to help govern the Citizen system. We shall be picking volunteers to lead the system; however we only want people who are genuinely interested in playing Citizen, not simply a Guardsman’s alt.

The Citizen Team will be responsible for the recruitment of Citizens, running regular events and helping to promote the system to outsiders.

1.7 Mayoral Elections

Approximately every five weeks there will be a Mayoral Election, the winner of which will become the Mayor of Yew. Some of the features of this rank include –

May propose new Laws and Policy to the Lord Protector
Should arrange City wide events for people to attend
Can ask for the assistance of the Militia in various projects
Can tour other lands with a Guardsman escort
Is permitted to spend a budget of Copper on whatever they wish
May nominate 2 ministers to aid him in his duties

To run for Mayor you will need to be a Citizen, Guardsmen are not permitted to run for Mayor as they are duty sworn to serve the Militia. You will need to form a ‘Party’ which has at least 5 members, including a nominated leader who will hold the post of Mayor if the Party is elected.

The elections will take place over 2 days, during which every resident of Yew (Guardsman and Citizen alike) will have the ability to vote for their new Mayor.

Please note that the Mayor is acting on behalf of the Lord Protector, they are not the Cities ruler. That said, only the Lord Protector himself can command the Mayor so he has a lot of influence and power at his disposal.
