The Húskarlar are the personal guard of the Count. They reside in Vera-Borg and are responsible for the safety of the Count.
In battle they will serve as the Counts own household guard, accompanying him into battle where they are well known for their skill and ferocity.
During peacetime, some of the everyday tasks of the Völsung Húskarlar may include: Patrolling in and around Vera-Borg to ensure the safety of the Capital and surrounding region. Escorting the Count in his travels within and outside of Vera-Borg. Working with the Dróttinn to ensure that defenses within and around Vera-Borg are in place and being maintained, and perhaps other small tasks as requested by the Count or the Dróttinn.
Being a member of the Count's personal guard will have it's benefits. Nothing is set in stone but I would LIKE, to provide those in my guard with a mount of his/her's choosing, the best equipment available to us, and (if it's feasable) a monthly income. Again, these are not set in stone, it is not known what will be possible. However regardless I will make sure that those who serve int he Völsung Húskarlar are rewarded for their service.
The Völsung Húskarlar are lead by the Dróttinn (leader). It is his or her's job to ensure that members of the Húskarlar are receiving proper training and know their responsibilities. The Dróttinn is also responsible for aiding the Count in maintaining the defenses of Vera-Borg. Ensuring that the proper defenses are being built and maintained. The Dróttinn leads the Húskarlar in battle, answering to no one but the Count on the battlefield.
Those interested in serving in my household guard please contact me on Discord or via PM here in the forums.
I am also seeking someone to fill the role of Dróttinn. If you feel you would be able to fill this role please contact me.
Skaut Vorðr af Völsung
Who they are and what they do
The Skaut Vorðr (border guards), are made up of huntsmen, rangers, adventurers, etc. They are those who live off the land and are at home in the wild. They also protect the land and the wildlife. In times of war they can fill many roles, such as scout, archer, forager, light cavalry and so on. They are the eyes and ears of the County. They go where others dare not and know the land better than anyone.
The Skaut Vorðr af Völsung will serve an extremely vital role for the County. It is my opinion that the huntsmen/ranger type is one of the most important roles in our community given it's versatility. They can provide food. They are knowledgeable about the land and how to best protect it. They protect the wildlife of the County to ensure extinction does not take place. In times of war they can act in a number of beneficial roles. They serve an extremely vital purpose to a County. Because of that, I have created the Skaut Vorðr af Völsung.
We need you!
Right now this is simply a branch within the County. It is my hope to find an individual who is willing to lead this group, and turn it into a fully functioning guild within the game.
If you plan to play a huntsman/ranger type we have a great need for you within Völsung County. The role this group can fill can not be overlooked and I feel, given our goals and our background, that you will be vital to the success of our County.
If you have an interest in joining the County and wish to join the Skaut Varðr af Völsung simply drop me a PM here on the forums or as always, join us on the County Discord. (link above)
If you have an interest in perhaps leading such a group, please get in contact with me and we can discuss that possibility.
