Okay, let me just clarify what the name means.
You know how a lot of noble men or women, and maybe members of the royal family
tend to get involve in a battle one way or another. And not saying some of them are incompetent
leaders when it comes to commanding troops. There are a lot of great demonic leaders that served
Verthell and became legends for it. However we refer to the other lot of fools who charge in recklessly
into battle and inevitably meet their grim fate cause they just couldn't keep their sword in their pants.
As you can see this doesn't really help the army's moral who break after seeing their brains for gone
leader get chopped off into many pieces.
It also didn't help that their numbers were staggering during those days as well. In a realm kingdom
as big as a, well, a whole solar system, you tend to have a numerical number of idiots in noble families that number in
the thousands. And yes, there were thousands upon thousands of noble families in Verthell.
But also a lot of them are dying needlessly in battles. Sometimes they were the first casualties.
So to help aid their special liter of idiots. The Royal Government and the surrounding city governments,
decided to create their own babysitte... I meant, the Order of the Realm's Reach.
Which is in short, a very powerful kind of royal guard, branched of the main sect.
These special units are ordered to protect their assigned royal or noble superiors, at all costs.
So basically giving your life for an idiot. But there is an upside, they can decide not to follow given instructions
given to them by their slightly challenged leader. But they still have to protect them at all costs.
And what do you know, the City Independence treaty, and the
establishment of the Order of the Realm's Reach. The number of their bone headed casualties fell by such a significant amount that
nobles are willing to pay more to have added Royal Guards to their protection, even stationing them as their own personal body guards.
Now, moving on to small details.
You remember how I told you about the way that armor is treated in my story.
Needless, since everyone can cast some sort of a variant on defense magic for protection.
But not these guys, the few exceptions are them.
With armor oozing with magical powers, they were like tanks and are known to decimate whole platoons
if not dealt with. It takes a good strategy to take one of them down.
Also, if you were wondering why they are not just as many of them, you should know that not everyone
is capable of casting or handling magic at that high a dose. It can kill with an overload, and countless
wannabe foot soldiers die trying. While there are numerous soldiers in their respective realms, ranging with populations in the trillions.
It must come as a surprise that there are only as few as 30 that are compatible with high dose magic exposure on these soldiers every 3 years.
And not all of them wanted to be in the Royal Guard to begin with. With that in mind, they are the smallest in terms of the different segments
in the military that serve, but never underestimated.
Also about the City Independence treaty (read off if you are not interested with demonic and angelic political problems)
If you ever consider two solar system sized realm kingdoms, with populations of both reaching uncountable people.
You are bound to have some of them hate the other and from there conflict will arise. Before the treaty, two small cities can bring the whole
kingdoms to war. Even though their neighbors didn't really have a conflict to begin with. That was the problem with their old written laws, that
the whole kingdom must wage into battle if their territories are threatened. But after a lot of talks with either sides, they have established the
City Independence Treaty. Basically the whole agreement states that all cities will become city states independent on their own diplomatic actions.
However they must still swear loyalty to the Central Government to still have them supported by it. Which also means that two cities can kill each other
without having every side bring out their whole armies. Also that Angel vs Angel became a thing and soon a lot of them had small civil wars.
At first the establishment of borders between neighboring cities was a problem when it's said that borders are established based on the city's outcome.
Of course military excelled cities are not really known for their agreement to such a thing so they started conquering. With that in mind they implemented
that the Royal guards of respective side will actually put down a power hungry cities that decided to go on a conquer spree. Yes, both Demon and Angelic Royal guards
will descend (or ascend depending on which side) upon any army who starts rampaging. And no one wanted to mess with the royal guards. Let alone of the two kingdoms.
So these are the set of rules which each city in conflict must follow to avoid the butt spanking of their lives.
1. Cities at war must attempt till the end of using peaceful resolutions other than conflict.
2. Cities who failed at the first must only fight their battles on set battle areas on the borders of each kingdom and will be watched over by their respective superiors.
3. Cities cannot go to war for the next 2 years after their last one.
4. Cities who manages to win is not permitted to cross over the city defeated. Only Ambassadors.
5. Cities who are victorious will have their demands favored over a city that of which is defeated, but will be governed by a respected representative to oversee demands.
6. The reason and statement must be sent in written form to their respective governments before conflict ensues
7. Although several cities are allowed to be allied, it cannot be more than 10 cities with 3 supporting cities.
8. Cities are not allowed to go into conflict with cities belonging to their respective Central Governments. (anti-civil war)
9. Cities declaring neutrality cannot engage, support, and start their own conflicts. But in return will be protected by the Central Government.
There are a lot more to list, but I wrote down the important parts but the last one states.
Those who do not follow the given regulations will be severely punished.
Basically calling the big boys to take care of your rebelling ass.
Anyway, I hope you guys like bits of the lore I have for today, and with plenty more to come.
Who knew I would go into detail about a law that doesn't even exist.
Welp, off to draw more and possible write more.
If you have questions you can always leave it in the comments and I'll try to answer your desire for fictional knowledge.
But aside from that, there is so much things to write down but I'm too lazy for which topic to cover so I'm just here for that.
Anyways, have a nice day and may luck and wisdom beseech thee random watcher.
