Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Armed Forces Report.

At the request of His Royal Highness King Hosidius V, I, Lord Rickard Shayzien, have conducted a complete review of the Shayzien forces.

This report aims to deliver accurate statistics of our current personnel, as well as provide strategic recommendations based upon a number of likely conflict scenarios.

Total Personnel: CIV


Our total force of able bodied soldiers of one hundred is not adequate. History teaches us that we face constant threats, such as the beast of winter. We must expand our forces substantially in order to face these threats and defend the Kingdom of Great Kourend.

We must invest in officer class training in order to maintain obedience throughout the ranks.

Furthermore, we live in a time where magical discoveries are made every day, and the threat of a magical based attack increases with each discovery. Standard forces are not prepared to battle such a threat. We must invest in defence against these dark arts.

Recommended Expansion

I hereby formally recommend to His Royal Highness King Hosidius V that the Shayzien armed forces be permitted the resources required for expansion.

I stress that these resources are absolutely required in order to adequately defend our great kingdom.

The armed forces shall separate into three regiments:
- Elder Warriors
- Twisted Archers
- Kodai Mages

Each regiment will consist of two hundred personnel under the command of a General, with each General reporting to myself. All personnel are to be highly trained, following a specialist recruitment and selection process. Only the strongest citizens will be selected.

The state will provide excellent accommodation for all personnel. This will include three meals each day, as well as pensions to families in the event of death.

Once operational, the six-hundred strong multi-skilled forces will be able to defend Great Kourend from all threats.

It is of the upmost[sic] importance that His Royal Highness invests in these forces in order to protect all that he rules.

I eagerly await your response.


Lord Rickard Shayzien

891 - 32
