The Republic of the Silver Sun is a "practical roleplay" guild that strives to accomplish it's goals without being bogged down with too much hierarchy or needless ceremony. The guild is organized for efficiency and flexibility, and is less about the "fluff" you find in many roleplaying guilds.
We were around at the launch of Darkfall 1.0 as a member of the Kingdom of Hyperion and occupied the city of Ghulgat. Close friendships and years of gaming together mean we are bringing back many of our members from that time. Darkfall: Unholy Wars appears to be addressing many of the issues we had with the original, so we will be playing long term.
RSS is known equally for it's laid back nature when at peace, and for its supreme organization during war. The minds behind the first Hyperion wars are back, and we intend to dominate. Whether we spend time taking holdings for the kingdom, or we render our services as mercenaries, PvP will be our main focus.
Structure of the Republics Military
The Military of the Republic is split up into two aspects: Professional Military and the Militia Reserve. Enlisting in the Military places one in the Professional Military and requires drill attendance and patrols, but rewards with free equipment and faster advancement. The Militia Reserve is not required to drill, however, they are required to fight.
The Military fights in a tiered command system. The Army of the Republic is led by the Minister of War. Lance Corporal and Guardsman are grunt ranks, while the Sergeants and Lieutenants provide leadership. The standard unit is the Squadron and only the leadership (LTs and Sergeants) is static with members being placed within a squadron as necessary.
Units are broken down into Patrols and Teams based upon the situation and add flexibility to command and control of the Military. Several units exist in honor of past victories and events.
In addition, we are exclusively associated with MilitaryGamers.com. Many of our members are active duty, reserve, or retired US Military, and we have developed close ties with this community. They are always looking for the best fight around, so we will no doubt be drawing from their ranks for Darkfall:UW. Those with a military background will feel right at home and will appreciate our approach to the game.
