Mercadia Reborn

Post by Talom » Sun Mar 12, 2023 6:39 pm

Taloms mind drifted, past memories flooded into his head of he and his crew, the hardships they had endured, the victories and the loss they had suffered. It was all leading to this.

Every ounce of work he and his crew had put into the nation would now come to fruition an-”General, the men are waitin’ “

Talom looked up and gave a nod, “Send word out, Mercadia is to rise past any kingdom of man that has ever existed.”

Updated rank and file system in Mercadia is as follows

Moving forward with Mercadia, all forms of nobility and any claims to a throne through blood line or otherwise will be null and void, Mercadia is to become a meritocracy run by those who would see it thrive and continue to grow with military ranking.

This new philosophy for Mercadia allows any man or woman born from nothing to achieve greatness and rise up the ranks of the military body as their merit and their prowess allows.

(Military Land is considered the various defensive Keeps around Mercadias territory.)

Rankings in Mercadia

General- Highest Rank available,the supreme authority in Mercadia, is the overall nation leader.

Colonel- Right hand of the General, a second in command position

Captain- Captains run much of the lower ranks, keep them in line and report directly to the Colonel and General. (Once this rank is achieved may apply for military land ownership such as keeps that surround Mercadias territories.)

Lieutenant- Lieutenants run much of the new entries into the ranks of the military, they ensure anyone below them in rank is following protocol and report deeds of ill intent or merit to the Captains

Sergeant- Sergeants are the backbone of the military they organize training and ensure all new recruits are outfitted by the Quartermaster. They also interface with the Quartermaster more to ensure they have all they need.

Corporal- Act as the peacekeepers and law enforcers of Mercadia and direct Ensigns and Privates as needed in times where higher ranked officials are not around.

Private- The first step upward on the Military ladder is the private, the underlying workforce of Mercadia and the rank acts as a platform to show what an individual is made of to perhaps achieve greatness.

Ensign- New recruits to the military

All Military Members will be outfitted by a Quartermaster, they simply need to make time and meet with one to figure out what is needed and it will be supplied.
