10.8 CITY MILITIA

A city's militia comprises those stalwart citizens who have volunteered 
to go to war and fight for the glory and, if necessary, defense of their
beloved city. Joining the city militia is not a step to be taken
lightly, for those who volunteer to follow the way of the soldier leave 
behind certain privileges of civilian life. 

Bold citizens who chose to join the militia are naturally subject to repercussions during wartime. Participating in wartime activities will place them on their city's active roster which opens them to the enemy's free attack until the roster is cleared during wartime. MWHO <city> ACTIVE will show this roster. 

The warrior's life does have its privileges, however. Only those
enlisted in the militia have the opportunity to lead divisions of troops
into battle and righteously claim territory in the name of their        
homeland. Further, during wartime, a militiamember has free cause to assault and destroy members of the enemy's active roster. 

The following commands apply to city militia members:

ENLIST <your city>
- Causes you to join the militia of your city. Your militia rank will be
 apparent to anyone viewing your HONORS.

CITY MILITIA PROMOTE/DEMOTE <person>
- The Minister or Aides of the Ministry of War, as well as ranking
militia officers, may issue promotions or demotions to militia
volunteers. Though each city may define promotion criteria for its
militia members, a certain base level of warfare 'experience' is        
required for promotion to a given rank. Currently, the only way to gain 
this experience is by capturing territory for the city. New recruits    
must be promoted once before they are able to command divisions.

officers and members of the War and Security ministries may see the 
roster. 

LEAVE MILITIA <city>
- This allows you to leave the militia of your city while still residing
within your city. Be aware that you must serve a full tour of duty
before leaving the army.
