Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Luc, what rank are you by chance in the black musketeers, You start as a sergeant for free did you buy any extra. I am one rank Higher as a Subaltern the lowest rank of Officer but we could serve together in the same unit if you like. I am only 18 years old with not much experience but lots of talent and potential if you will. I was brought up from the ranks, so thinking we could of been sergeants together or at least at the same time.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
didn't buy rank to start, for an advantage he rolled up filthy rich, didn't want to overplay that or exploit it outright. if luc stays with the musketeers he may see about ranking up a bit. he is still just a sergeant and kind of a known hothead. thought i'd see how it plays out for a while.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Sounds great, we can serve together and with all your wealth you can buy your young 2nd lieutenant drinks. Depending on how strong our bond is, you can either stay in the barracks or at my House.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
I have one more person asking to play.  I already shut off the "looking for players" tag, are you guys collectively okay with one more?

No objection. It'll help with the inevitable RPOL attrition.

I can upload a blank one if that would be helpful. There’s something about that file where it seems like you have to wait for about 5 minutes for it to load. I just walked away from
My computer, made a sandwich and by the time I came back it was ok.

That sounds pretty good, we may be from platoon or something. Thanks, let's go buy fruit and wine to keep on hand for the woman who come calling.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
I will be updating my sheet later today. Anyone who has played this system before can give me some advice. How hard would it be for a character to get a loan in game if needed. I have spent most of my money we start with already, have a small reserve for the start say about 1/4 of my yearly income set aside. The loan would be for like 120L if it is needed  and that mainly if the game goes the route of a war  for the soldiers etc. If we go on a campaign he will want a full suit of proper armor.

[Private to Luc de Chasse: In regards we might RP it out as well if our unit goes to war. He has adequate armor for the city but in a war where constant fighting and battles  are guaranteed a full suit is needed.]

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
It's easy enough to get a loan from a bank; you're an officer after all. 10% is the usual interest (pg. 39).

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
TY, I don't mind light armor for the city etc but a real war requires one to wear a fulls et of good armor as we will be using it no matter how good we are.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
the biggest difference between the Cuirassiers and the Musketeers on the battlefield was that the Musketeers were used in the same manner as Dragoons and fought dismounted. The Cuirassiers fought from horseback, often using lance and sword instead of firearms to break up formations or capture artillery, while Musketeers rode up and fought dismounted to always use their firearms. In reality, most of the time they were deployed on foot and marched with the Pikemen who would form a line between them and the enemy Cavalry. DuMont really made the musketeers seem so valiant and dangerous in a fight. They were elite shooters with good training in close combat due to how slow their weapons were to us, but they most often shot firearms in war and swung swords in town.
