Speaking Britannian

Example of a dialogue:

Thug trying to get past a roadblock without paying (noble guard speech)

- Halt thy steps, knave! Canst thou not see 'tis a roadblock thou'rt passing!?

- So, ye say so. Go pester someone else. Mi got buisness ta handle!

- Another loudmouth from Britain, I take it... Men, make sure he be not smuggling illegal wares.

- Hands off mi, ye stinkin' bastards! Wouldn't want ta spill the guts o' yers!

- We handle the likes of thee for breakfast, so cooperate, and 'twill be easier for us all.

 Another example of dialogue:

Guardsman conversation (Noble Guard and Commoner Footman)

- Greets, sah! Fine day, 'tis not?

- Well met, Footman. 'Tis a masterpiece, aye!

- Me's been off and huntin' them bugger orcs... Them breed like rats, them does, sah!

- Indeed. I've heard the Militia coffers are empty. Mayhap we should gather some men and arrange a roadblock?

- Good thinkin', sah!

- Thou dost know I hate a... "suckup"? Mhhh?

- Sorry, sah. Me does too.

Wordlist

There's a list of a words that have special definitions within the Militia. These words, all guardsmen should learn to know.

Word

Meaning

Civilian

Anyone not in the guilds: "The Clergy" (abbrev- C) or "The Guardsmen Militia" (abbrev. Grd).
Taint This is a rather wide term, used for those that ruin the feel of Britannia. Taint is a sickness of the mind, that easily spreads. It causes madness, strange guttural sounds and in extreme cases unexplainable violent behaviour.

Someone either

  • not speaking correct Britannian
  • having a silly guild-title
  • having an out of character name
  • wearing obviously unfitting clothes

is considered to be tainted. No Militia character should ever have a friendly relation to anyone being Tainted.

(For example someone named "ChRiS", but speaking perfect Britannian is still Tainted.)

Unconscious When killed during training, duelling or other inter-guardsman activities, a guardsman is not dead, but rather "unconscious". This means after they gather their gear, they do not keep their deathrobe on and do not wait the CoY half-hour for death.

Witch

A non-Militia member, but still roleplayer, having an in character name and using magic. (Should be treated with mistrust.)

Witchcraft

Magic used by a Witch. All guardsmen dislike this form of magic and shun it. They should never ask for it to be used on them nor will they appreciate it being thrown on them, even if it's to a positive effect.

Trainee Wordlist

To make things easier to the Trainee we have made a list of words that are not to be used by the guardsmen. The reason is that they are "out of character". This means no real Britannian would ever use them. Using any of the forbidden words could get the guardsman killed or thrown out of the guild.
