  • Every 6 months, the Town Marshal will review the activity and performance of the Militia Captains. This process is to ensure the Captains are upholding the highest level of activity and conduct within the organization.

Associations

Applicants may be in an existing MHO or CHE, and also still be a member of the Landing Militia.

There exists currently 3 player-run organizations in Wehnimer's Landing whose charter has them as acting defense for the town and the innocents in the area. These organizations will be given the opportunity to select 1 of their Officers to obtain Captain status in the Wehnimer's Militia. This is optional, as said position would be required to report and be loyal to the Town Marshal (GM NPC). Some groups may decline, seeking not to have specific fealty to a town leader, but this will not keep the Wehnimer's Militia from coordinating or fighting alongside these groups in times of battle.

In addition, members of any of these player-run groups can join the Wehnimer's Militia, regardless of their associations with other groups and said groups involvement. There is a level of cross-over expected, and quite frankly encouraged, as the Militia is by no means intended to detract from the purpose and community of other organizations. Instead, it is designed to provide a vehicle for others to get involved together, despite affiliations. Future MHOs and CHEs that have pledged full loyalty to the town of Wehnimer's Landing for a period of 12 consecutive months may petition the Town Marshal to be considered for additional Captain positions.

The current organizations who qualify for a representative Captain position are: The Silver Gryphons, the Drakes Vanguard, and the Landing Defense Irregulars.

These associated positions must adhere to the same requirements and code of conduct of all other positions and are subject to the same disciplinary action.
