Tomorrow we will start actively looking for members to fill the ranks of the army, this is what i have wrote up feel free to leave a commit if you think something sounds stupid, might need reworded, something added or taken way and ill review it tonight.

Code of Conduct for the Eternal Army
1) I am an Eternal Kingdom Solider , fighting in the forces which guard my Kingdom and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.
2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.
3) A Eternal Soldier acts as an official representative of Eternal Kingdom who is required and trusted to work within the code of conduct. The fundamental duties of a The army include serving the community, safeguarding lives and property, protecting the innocent, keeping the peace.
4) All citizens will be treated equally with courtesy, consideration and dignity. Not just members of the Eternal Kingdom, its armies or Ally’s, but everyone who we are not actively at war with.
5) A Solider will never employ unnecessary force or violence and will use only such forces in discharge of duty as is reasonable in all circumstances.
The use of force should be used only after discussion, negotiation and persuasion have been found to be inappropriate or ineffective by the commanding officers. While the use of force is occasionally unavoidable, everyone will refrain from unnecessary infliction of pain or suffering.
6) Whatever a solider sees, hears or learns of that is of a confidential nature will be kept secret unless the performance of duty requires otherwise.
7) Through study and experience, a solider can acquire the high level of knowledge and competence that is essential for the efficient and effective performance of duty.
Cool We will not quit a campaign just because it seems we might be losing.
9) We will act in accordance of the orders received by the chain of command
10) As the musketeers it’s all for one, and one for all
1. We enact today the 1st of April the commission of the Eternal Army.
2. The Eternal Army will act as the will of the counsel.
3. The Eternal Army will seek no land to call their own, but will fortify lands of ally’s and the Trade kingdom itself.
4. The Eternal Army will act in accordance of the guidelines set forth by the Army Commander and the war counsel.
5. The Eternal Army shall be made up of professional soldiers, Man and Woman who take up sword and shield, Rod our Staff shall be in brassed in the halls of the Eternal Kingdom as brother and sister.
6. The Eternal Army will provide safety for its members, and the members of the Eternal Kingdom that its sworn to protect.
7. The Eternal Army will not retreat our give ground till its brethren have been cleared of danger, we are the line in the sand.
8. The Eternal Army will set forth with the might of the Eternal kingdoms and the backing of its citizen soldiers where others must look for crafters and traders the Eternal Army will not have to look far.
9. The Eternal Army will be comprised of 1 Army Commander , 3 Members of a war counsel, Army Generals, and knights ( will depend on size and campaign titles will change )

Eternal Army Creed
Some trade in salt, others in stone. But others, others trade in life and they trade in death. They trade in blood and they trade in souls. We are those others and they call us the Merchants of Death. I recognize the fact that I have volunteered to serve with the elite of the elite. The Eternal Army. As a Soldier I will always strive to uphold the prestige, and honor of my Company. Our bound is iron, our will unbreakable this is my bound of blood and iron. The blades of enemies may steal are age, Thieves may steal our gold but my bound I will maintain.


Eternal Army motto

Life is a balance, until we tip the scales.

you might want to change that eternal kingdom part though,or was it decided to change the guild name to that?
otherwise it just gives off the feeling as if our army was nothing more than a police force for the EK^^

Going with the East India Company theme, we could call the army branch: "The Regiment"

Other random words that we could use instead: The Caravaners, The Expeditioners, The Pilgrimers, The Watch, The Regimental Guard, The Company Men, EKTC Teamsters Union, The Drovers Army, The Gold Cloaks, The Guildmen ...

I'm kind of fond of "The Regimental Guard".

The Eternal Army makes my thoughts go all He-Man and stuff. Not a fan.


Just throwing things out to see if they stick. :)

Oh the regimental guard is kind of sexy. Company men is good too. Maybe the Iron Guard, Iron Regiment, Iron Company "Gold is pretty and soft but iron is strong and dependable. We are the Iron of the vault. We are the Iron which protects your gold"

I can even make the term for that in Khuzdul. Let me see...
EDIT: I think it would be Umrâz Khaltu. Yes, I have too much free time on my hands.

I like the ring of something Guard. I went on a Latin to English words site and looked up words for trade and Company and got some interesting words. One of the words for company is coitus but I don't think that is sense of the word I was looking for.

Gurkhas
Originally from Nepal, these reckless warriors caught the eye of the British Empire during the East India Company’s invasion of Nepal in 1814. Impressed with their skill and courage, the British offered them the chance to fight for them. Gurkhas have since fought for numerous countries (including the United States) in multiple conflicts (including both World Wars)
Just thought this was kind of relevant to the guild.
