    Guilds Of The Keep
    write by ser Emerick, Acting Court Chronicler
    While the population of this keep can be considered as the sum of the individuals that the Necromancer has awoken, its lifeblood is undoubtedly found in the various guilds, groups and organizations run by these very individuals. Here, this publication presents just a few of the available guilds that one may join, whether a newly awoken guest of Her Majesty, or a long-established resident seeking to change their path.

    Below is a quick introduction to each guild, a basic list of requirements, and whom to contact for more information or to apply.
    Awakener, The Awakeners

    Awakeners are responsible for helping the new guests find clothes, answering their questions, teaching them basic courtesy, helping them find friends, and aiding them in finding their path within their new home. It can be a demanding job and Awakeners are often pulled from conversations and fun to go help when a new guest wakes, but as we watch the new guests find their paths and prosper within the caste, the hard work is always worth it.

    • A genuine desire to aid and welcome new guests to the castle
    • Courtesy, kindness, and patience

    Law And Why It Is Beneficial For All
    write by Dame Wilena, Captain of the Royal Guard

    Many of late have claimed the law to be unfair and cruel, when in fact the law serves several purposes. The main purpose is to protect all of Her Grace's denizens from each other and the chaos that would ensue should anyone take matters into their own hands.
    For instance, let us say someone known to be a repeat criminal is killed on the parapets. The dead criminal would nay simply be scoffed at and ignored by lawmen; the crime would be treated just as seriously as all others. It nay matters that they were/are a criminal, what matters is that they are a denizen of Her Grace, and as such are protected by the same laws as someone who has never committed a crime. In the eyes of the law they are treated equally. This goes for all crimes committed, Misdemeanor or High Crime.

    Lawmen themselves are nay above the laws they are sworn to uphold, and the punishment for breaking a law can easily be a dishonourable discharge in addition to what is already listed in the Capitulary. There is even a set of laws that specifically pertains to them. There are also exceptions, but nonetheless they are still held to each.

    Thus, the law itself is nay unfair in the least; it is actually what is keeping everyone safe, and that all denizens are entitled and held to.

    (Please note that "denizens" means those that live in the Outer and Inner baileys, and are nay currently exiled.)
