KSI - Kitab's Scout Investigators

Postby Kitab Al'Ibar on Wed Nov 18, 2009 7:11 pm

To scouts old and new, I have taken the responsibility of being the Scout Master to the clan and as part of this, I aim to make myself as active and contactable as possible, therefore I invite you all to speak freely to me here, via PM, or through instant messengers: my MSN address is Master.sanders@gmail.com and my Skype address is Petermisanthrope, I look forward to hearing from you.

Many of the principles I will work on as your new Scout Master will build upon the systems already organised by Kir’ima and linked here.

Purpose of the scouts:
We are the eyes in the darkness, the ears in the crowd, the blur of motion the edge of your vision and the flash of red before darkness descends.

In essence we are the agents of the clan, our multitude of jobs range from simple exploration and observation, rumour milling and job searching to hunting Kir’isu and supporting the warriors in combat. Our key skills are our evasion, speed and stealth and I plan to develop these, combat should never be our first option, but in some situations it will be unavoidable, therefore I will be considering ways of improving our combat capabilities as well – see training below.

My Second in Command is Tal’ray in the comic, Sword Goddess on the forums.

Current Issues:
Since becoming Scoutmaster I’ve endeavoured to take the scouts away from being odd-jobs men and escort duty, I’ve tried to get us exploring new areas and putting our skills to use in helping other ranks during events and supporting the clan in the best way we can.

Training is another key part of my plan for the scouts; too often we are unable to find time for training due to constant need for escorts or responding to events that have appeared in the EA or LA. I aim to take more opportunities to train the scouts in abilities which will benefit us and help us fulfil our duties to the clan.

In the past I’ve spoken of organising the scouts into squads similarly to the warriors, these would be squads of 4 people each. Kern has not allowed this on the grounds that the scouts are too small to warrent it, however, scouts do typically function in groups of 4 or it's multiples.

Structure:
The number of scouts fluctuates constantly, but the ideal structure caters for a group of 18 scouts organised as follows. 16 scouts will be separated into four (4) groups of four (4), each of these groups will have a Squad Leader. The remaining two scouts will be my SiC and myself, this gives me the flexibility to split the groups as needed, I will lead one group and my SiC the other – forming two groups of 9.

Squads are unofficial, but if for role-play purposes you wish to stay in family groupings among your squad, I will take note of any requests.

Training – Ther’avare:
Scout Mobility & Evasion Training: Currently none planned. There is the possibility that we will soon be receiving climbing claws, they will be tested as part of Mobility and Evasion training.

Scout Stealth Training: The scouts will spend an action “Stealing” resources from under the eyes of other ranked members, some will be more successful than others. (These resources will be returned).

Scout Combat Training: We will continue to train our combat and defence skills, I aim to set up some combined training alongside the warriors.

Training – Orthorbbae:
Combat - Offensive:
Charged crossbow bolts (Shan’naal’s power): I believe this was described as Shan’naal’s unique sorcery, therefore it is unlikely that we can learn it at this time.
Mana Blasts: The ability to use mana offensively as well as defensively.

Evasion: Light/Shadow Mana Training: To improve the scout evasion and stealth capabilities, it may be useful to develop mana training in this area. Affinity training has not yet been tried by other groups, therefore we do not know how well this would work.

Long Term Future Plans:
With the opening of our Settlement, scouts will begin to play an active role in the community, we will from time to time assist in patrolling the settlement and keep a lookout for other clans potentially interfering in our areas of influence. With the loss of the watchtower as an official lookout post and the reticence of the clan to replace it with another outpost, the settlement becomes our lookout post.

Plans to start Relic Hunting were not well received by Kern, but we still intend to search the ruins to the North of Ther when the Miners and Builders are free, possibly with aid from the Mana Specialists. We may also consider exploring briefly outside of the eastern passages.

Project Finding Nemo will continue from time to time in an effort to continue exploring areas of Chel and slowly uncovering the map. These activities will be conducted when the clan is not occupied with more important concerns and when we have a clear idea of what we are searching for. Suggestions are welcome.
