Actually I will make you musketeers now If that will make things intresting for Gaston. I have a musketeer mission in mind after this adventure.

Gaspard wonders how much a Musketeer uniform would bring on the open market.

Hopefully he will change his mind. If not we will keep the character in the game in case one of the other characters is killed.

Sorry I was away from keys but I had a date last night. Recovery day today.

Re: Out Of Character Chat
Thanks for the comments guys.

Maybe I've been too hasty. I'll give it another go and try and think where I can take my character.

Let's stick with what we have going. Being a musketeer is his thing. But since many characters. Seems to aspire to the musketeerd perhaps they could roleplay a bit more perhaps asking about life in the muskeers. Let's use this scene to roleplay.

 The King's Black Musketeers where the King's personal Guards company. They did have a reputation of being both fearsome on the field of battle,and with duels. On the other side of the coin,they where seen by many as the king's lap dogs and pets,as they received extra pay and favors from time to time.
 Apologies if I bore anyone, I just enjoy this period and like to talk abit it.:)

History will be a bit flexible here. For instance there will already be other musketeer companies. But we will try and stay as accurate as plot and enjoyment allow.

Another player has been added. I want him to join at the same time. It will take a moment to bring it together and we will all be in the Duke's room.

Sound good?

Welcome new player. :)

I'm happy to work with a Musketeer angle though to be honest I'd prefer it if Gaston could remain the ranking 'officer' (though of course since he is a mere sergeant he isn't even a comissioned officer yet.)

I would prefer you two were both sergeants. Bit like Gunga Din so neither could pull rank.

If you're both sergeants the date each obtaining the rank dictates who's the superior.

Re: Out Of Character Chat
Not for our purposes. They will just be two sergents. Later in the game rank might play in more .

But Gaston's military rank is the only thing he has in his favour - three quarters of the group already outrank him socially speaking.

In which case why two sergeants? Gaston's only distinction is his military rank. If he has to share it with someone else he has nothing that is unique to him.

Re: Out Of Character Chat
Thanks but that wouldn't be fair to the other player unless he became a Subaltan too, which is the same issue as us both being sergeants.

I don't know... I guess I can have Gaston quit the Musketeers. Actually that's probably the best solution since at least he'll have a definite identity ('ex-Musketeer').

Gaston's PC

I am a bit confused. The Three Musketeers is a story of three members of the musketeers, but rank is never an issue. Characters like people are more than a job or a rank. I was thinking another Musketeer would actually help you explore some military themes, such as brotherhood, loyalty and honor.

The two rogues in the game have very similar skills, but there are surely to be many differeces including personality and goals.

Why not be open to exploring the options?

Here is my two cents. Being in the Guards,be it Horse,or one of the Foot Guard units was a status in of itself. A simple trooper could have more influence then some officers in a regular regiment. But as far as rank is concerned,unless one is on duty or campaign,it really did not matter. The Black Musketeers was a band of brothers..All for one,and one for all...

ANd I need a clarification from the GM,if he would be so kind. Renee grapped the letter,and Gaspard grapped it back.So from my view Gas at this point has the letter in his left hand,not being a fool.

I guess my issue is that while Gaston might have that sort of equal relationship with the other Musketeers they aren't they only ones in the party. With two high ranking nobles, a gentleman and fencing master Gaston is very low down the totem pole. If it were a Musketeers only campaign that wouldn't be a problem but as it is more Musketeers just means Gaston looses the distiction of being the groups Musketeer while still being a nobody socially.

I figure that if he leaves the Musketeers he'll at least have that to help him stand out.

 I will give this a shot once. Gaston IS a member of the most elite outfit in the entire French army. Just being a stinking private in the Guards let alone the Black Mustekeers is boasting rights.And he can get away with alot because of that status. Any other members of the group that happen to be Musketeers are brothers. Athos was a Baron,Porthos and Aramis where Gentlemen,but they where friends and brothers. Social rank is VERY important in this time period,but the Guards was one of the few places where background did not matter so much.They where Musketeers,they all wore the black coat,and beloved by the King. As I said before,a band of brothers.
