Because the castle is constantly under siege at night, Guard Captain Erizen has created two unique sleep schedules.
Sleep Schedule A: Allowed to sleep from sun set to sun rise. At sun rise they are required to wake and attend to their jobs.
Sleep Schedule B: Allowed to sleep from sun rise to sun set. At sun set, they are required to don their armor and weapons, and take up defensive positions around the castle.Equipment and Restrictions...
Because of the limitations of the natural resources around the castle, equipment has been restricted to certain professions. Guard Captain Erizen reserves all the Diamond and Iron supply to equip the guard, only left overs go into common usage.
Diamond Armor Set (Consists of a Diamond Chestplate, Diamond Helmet, Diamond Gloves, Diamond Grieves and Diamond Boots.): The best armor crafted by Castle Crafters to date. Light weight, durable, and incredibly protective, Diamond Armor is given to only those Castle Guard members who have proven themselves as assets to the Castle. Restricted to Elite Defense Force Members only.
Diamond Weapons (Sword, Axe, Arrows, Dagger): Powerful, lightwieght and durable, Diamond Weapons are sharper then anything every created, and they do not dull or break. These are given to only the most seasoned and respected members of the Castle Guard. Restricted to Elite Defense Force Members only.
Iron Armor Set (Consists of Iron Chestplate, Iron Helmet, Iron Gloves, Iron Grieves and Iron Boots.): As a member of the Castle Guard, Iron Armor is the standard uniform. Fairly durable and abundant enough to be used in such a manner, Iron is the symbol of the Castle Guard. Restricted to Castle Guard Memebers only.
Iron Weapons (Sword, Axe, Arrows, Dagger): Iron is a fairly common resource around the castle, and whatever iron is found is sent to Guard Captain Erizen, where it is either refined into weapons and armor, or redistributed to the common usage. Restricted to Castle Guard Members only.
Leather Armor Set (Consists of Leather Tunic, Leather Pants, Leather Gloves, and Leather Boots.) Leather is a common commodity around the castle, as many farms have raised cows for the use of their milk, beef and leather. Although weak, and unable to stand against a Creeper's Kamikaze
, or a skeleton's arrow, it is durable enough to protect the miners in the harsh conditions of the mines, and the wood cutters from hurting their hands. The Leather Armor Set is the only one without a helmet.
Stone Equipment: Stone is common, so common, it's used as almost a throw-away material. Stone Pickaxes are used by miners to execute their trade. Stone Shovels are used by farmers to plant crops. Stone Hoes are used to till farmland. Stone Swords are common enough to be distributed to the common man, and anyone strong enough to wield one. Stone Axes are used by both soldiers and lumberjacks to ply their trade. Stone Arrows can be lethal up close, but due to their weight, loose range fast.
Wooden Equipment: Heavy and weak, Wood is often seen as the ultimate 'In Case of Emergency' defense. Most wooden equipment is kept only in emergencies. Wooden Swords are carried by children to practice combat and learn basics of responsibility. Wooden Arrows, little more then sharpened shafts with feathers, are used primarily as practice arrows for aspiring archers. Wooden Pickaxes or Axes are used by those who have broken one of the Castle's commandments, as a form of punishment.Previous Professions...
The original survivors all came from Earth, taken from their against their will, they all held professions before arrival. You can be almost anything, from a doctor, to a criminal. Some examples include...
Civilian: In case your character was under the age of 16 at the time they were taken.Current Professions...
Everyone in the castle pitches in. From the moment you turn 16, you are considered an adult, and are required to help around the castle. At 14, every child, boy or girl, must apprentice with a profession, and are required to choose one at 16. The current professions include:
Miner: You spend your days under the earth, digging for stone and other valuable materials. Miners answer to no one, but understand their duty, and it's importance.
Stone Mason: You keep the Castle and it's buildings in working order, repairing any damage done during the night.
Soldier: You keep watch over the Castle as the others sleep, ever vigilant for the ones who stalk at night. You answer only to the Guard Captain.
Smith: You forge tools, armor, and weapons for everyone in the castle. You answer only to the Guard Captain.
Lumberjack: You spend the morning planting trees that were cut down the previous day, and the evening cutting down trees to use for wood in fires and other applications.
Farmer: You spend your days tending the fields and growing food for the castle.
Livestock Farmer: You care for animals, and are well versed in Animal Husbandry. You raise cows for their milk, meat and leather; Chickens for their eggs, feathers and meat; and pigs for their meat.
Demolitions Expert: Creepers are scary. But if you can kill them without setting off their Kamikaze
Defense, you can salvage Gunpowder from their carcass and make explosives. Explosives can be added to arrows, or used in mining.
Fisherman: Castle Creeperguarde is built by the ocean, and the oceans are teeming with fish, ripe for the catch. Sailing out in boats, you cast your line from sun up to sun set, hauling your catch back to the castle.
Shipwright: You mend and build boats for the fishing fleet.
More will come later.Important People in the Castle...
Castle Creeperguarde has no 'Leader'. The people are guided by the Guard Captain, and an elder.
Guard Captain Erizen Prophecy: The charismatic, defacto leader of the Castle, Erizen was the one who took the reigns when you first arrived in this strange world. A capable soldier, and a good medic, the castle would be lost without Erizen's guidance.
Elder Lorianne: Elder Lorianne was there from the beginning. Not as strong a fighter, or powerful a leader as the Guard Captain, the Elder has proven to be just as loved. She is the voice of the common man in the castle, and will listen to all plights, bringing them to the the Guard Captain.Important Poeple int he Castle; Detailed...Character Name
