The Training Grounds.

Image

The beating of wood against wood, the clashing of metal against metal, the shouts of drill instructors and the thudding of boots. The training grounds lie just behind the station, and serve as a place of learning and practice for all members of the Guard. Here, you may spar against your brothers in arms and practice the other skills needed to defend the peace.

The rules:
No brainer: All forum rules apply.

1. No god-modding, auto-hitting, or power playing.

2. Wait at least 24hrs. for everyone to respond. Especially important when you're fighting.

3. Please be respectful.

4. Have fun!

The drill instructor stands and watches as the recruits train, his icy blue glare searing into his students as they go about their tasks. It was getting into winter, so they were having to work to stay warm. Just the way he liked it. The sergeant takes a few steps along the path, running a hand through his short, blond hair as he watches them. Every now and then, another instructor can be heard barking out orders.

Into the field Ginx entered, the doors creaking open slowly as his fingers peeked out first through the crack, and a green eye stared into the large space. He pushed the rest open and wiggled himself through the small space rather than opening it completely, then closing it behind him before he turned around to face the large assortment of recruits.

As they practiced and sparred with each other, did their rounds and did their chores to get themselves better prepared for the jobs and situations they would face in the city, Ginx's head turned quickly and he gawked at the way they handled things, thinking it was all a very big dance of some-sort that they must be practicing. They didn't practice like that back at home, not at all, though a Sidhe wasn't usually the kind of Fae to do military-like things anyway. They were the nobles, wizards and sorcerers of his world, not the guards and working men.

To the world here though, his glamour made him look like a simple half-elf, a fey of the most mundane quality without much culture to back him up, and so he bounced up curiously with a hippy-hop gait, his long loose braid bouncing behind him before he stopped to the side of the blonde-haired drill instructor, who seemed to have an air of authority, and looked up to him with a smile.

"Hello!" He said, and showed a fangy grin. "My name is Ginx, and I'm new! And I want to be the best guard you've ever seen, but I have to do these things first!" He started up as if the man did not know. "What do I do first, mister sir?"

Since apparently, being super polite was important to these folk. What was more polite than adding not only a sir, but a MISTER sir? Nothing! Or so he thought, but there was a big culture clash here, and he couldn't treat them like how he treated superiors back home!

The Sergeant pauses and watches as the newcomer bounces his way toward him, obviously confused. Who was this kid? Did he not realize where he was? And then out spilled his drivel. He catches his name, "Ginx," followed by his banter of becoming the best guard he'd ever seen. He takes note of the sash, marking him as a Private, then inhales deeply. Time to whip him into shape.

"Just what the hell do you think you're doing, Private?!" he shouts, the other soldiers turning to figure out who was getting reamed before returning to their drills. "You are to address me as 'Sir!' Do you understand me, you little pile of frog snot?!"

Ginx was offended!

"But Mister Sir! I already called you Sir, Sir!" He tried with a wave of his hands.

"And I'm greeting you! What if I didn't say hello at all? Geesh!" Indeed, the teen was flabbergasted and could not understand just what he had done this time to rile this one up! It seemed everyone in the Guard had been woken up by an angry wild goat ramming them in the ribs, or something along those lines!

"Frog snot... Frogs don't make snot. Unless.. You mean 'Frog eggs'... Gross!" He stuck out his tongue and wrinkled his nose.

"Mister Sir-sir, Sir, SIR!" He said Sir a good few times, since that seemed to be what the man wanted and liked. Damn, Ginx really didn't like being this nice, he was used to being sneaky, smart and all-so-amazing.

The Sergeant stands there for several moments, not sure how to react. Very rarely did anyone take him that lightly. He shakes his head, clearing his thoughts, then takes another breath.

"Listen here! I am the Sergeant, and you are the Private! I give orders, and you carry them out!" he barks, "Am I clear?!" By this point, the anger on his face was clear to see. His hand whips out to the side, index finger extended toward another Private, who appeared to be practicing advanced maneuvers. "You will be training with him! He is quite adept at close combat, and will fill you in on what you've missed. Now get moving!"

Ginx didn't understand what was going on! Of course he was the Sergeant, that's why he was here and giving so many sir's! And of course he was here to serve, that's why he came up to him and was being so pleasant! So why was this man yelling about it? He couldn't figure it out for the life of him, the nature of things flying over his head and a thousand worlds away.

"Yes mister sir!" Ginx barked out, thinking perhaps talking loudly was the local dialect, here scampering over to the training pirate.

He clenched his fists as he stopped before him, knees bending slightly as he started to stare intensely and expectedly at the man, waiting for something to happen that would initiate the "training".

The Sarge goes off toward a group of privates as Ginx scurries away, muttering something under his breath.

The Private.

The private attacks a training dummy, each swing of his wooden broadsword striking the padding with a loud WOOMPH. After several minutes, he finally notices Ginx's stare and ceases his attacks, panting as he runs his free hand through his soaked, short brown hair.

"What ye be lookin' at, boyo?" he asks, his voice gruff and his accent more than noticeable. "Yer new 'ere, aren't ye?"

He walks up to Ginx, eyeing him up. He stands at about the same height as him, but has a lot more muscle.

"Me name's Gavin. Yerself?"
