Sometimes Guards form their own units, which I find annoying because it breaks up a BUNCH of units, but hey, they are the boss(es). You guardsmen all did the right thing by accepting - really if a protest could be file (it can't, really) us Knights can politely decline when asked.Sig
- Yes, I have to agree. I know I have not been at all active, but it seems like stepping back and re-prioritizing is the right thing to do.

Witness the Spartan unit at Estrella being "Me and Miles", and while we had several fighters at Mists Cynagua, many of them were attached to various "Guard" units, etc.

We have had those; agreed we need to step up our game, and have not done so. I am specifically NOT calling any one out for this - I don't even necessarily think of it as a horrid tragedy that could have been averted if only... blah blah.
> Things change, people change their priorities. My suggestion is that myself, or myself and Bjarni have a brief chat with Hauoc at crown, and whomever the crown-prince-to-be is and let them know that we will not be forming as a unit until further notice. We should all still stick together on the war field, and I for one am not to get bent of shape if people don't repaint their scuta or whatever (either way... you can paint something else on it or leave it). That's negoitable, I suppose.
