    Covenant idea (Legion theme)

    Post by Yarxov on Fri May 17, 2013 9:35 pm

    So I have an idea for a new covenant, more organized than most others and far more directed, I propose a covenant with the accompanying theme of Roman legionaires, inspired by the warrior and Steel armors, and symbolic Eagle Shield I created this awhile ago but was simply not active enough to consider launching it, with a new copy of the game I have mustered the courage to begin plans, however I don't want to let this fail so I will only launch if there is support and once it is more finalized so I am posting this to have a discussion on improvements and pre enlistment ^.^

    Here it goes "

    The soldiers of Lordran have lost their way. They are no longer united. They no longer have a battle to fight. No banner to defend. Here, is where we gather. Here, is where we unite to strike down our enemies!

    We shall become The Legion. And we shall retake what is ours! Who shall rally to fight, who shall join me in my war for conquest?!

    Information-
    As a member of The Legion you shall be assigned to a Division, each Division will be in charge of either the defense or offense of an area(s). The Division has three ranks, Legate, Centurion, and Legionaire.

    We meet in threes, an Officer (host) and two minors (summons), when invaded the minors go forth, and the Officer stands by. If they are defeated he will then dual the invader in single combat.

    This is war, before the dual between the Officer and invader anything goes within reason.

    If you are assigned to offense, you invade and kill the host at all costs.

    Uniform-
    We are The Legion, not mindless rabble! The uniform must make us known, so There are a few requirements per rank-

    Legionnaire-
    -Sword, Spear, and ranged (Any except Demon Spear, and path doesn't matter) (Ranged is talisman, bow or catalyst)
    -Hard leather chest, Gauntlets and leggings are open, but to fully show your allegiance Eastern Gauntlets and Hard Leather leggings and Helm are recommended. (Note: many say that Hollow soldier or Balder leggings are more styled, I disagree as the chest armor leaves your crotch open.)
    -To parry leave your L2 slot open, but many care not about parries and find bows more sufficient
    -No DWGR, all other rings are fine.

    Frumentarii-
    (Special role, carry symbolic Eagle Shield, full Legionaire Uniform aswell.)

    Centurion-
    -No shield/ Dark Hand
    -Sword or Greatsword, ranged is acceptable. (No MLGS)
    -Same as Legionaire, without the helm
    -No DWGR, rest fine.

    Legate-
    -Steel shield
    -Sword, spear, GS or ranged (No demon spear or MLGS)
    -Steel armor chest and helm, full set is recommended but can be modified to suit build needs.
    -No DWGR, rest fine.

    Legate [option 2]-
    -Black Iron shield
    -Full Black Iron armor helm optional or substitutional with Steel.
    - Spear, sword, greatsword or ranged. (No Demon Spear, MLGS, Zwhei)
    -No DWGR


    We do not accept the Darkwood Grain Ring, simply because a true warrior should not need to run and become an acrobat. And we do not condone the use of various weaponry that strays too far from the path of steel.

    This is war and the world is our enemy."

    Of course, everything is subject to change by this open poll, and many will scream and cry about the tactics discussion of "Two subordinates advance first" However this does not mean 2v1 it could be 1v1 twice over before the Leader.

    Im incredibly receptive to suggestions, feel free to shout out anything be it constructive or "Just no."

    i love this idea so much. i am a huge fan of anything what so ever that is at all related to the romans so consider me signed up! perhaps the frumentarii could act in the same way that actual frumentarii did. merging into other societies and becoming a trusted member of said society whilst always reporting on their every move behind that factions back and reporting only to the emperor (of course you yourself would have to be imperator but perhaps more of a cespasian approach would be much better) anyway like i said i will support this fully and happpily join if you are willing to accept

    i am on xbox by the way if that is a problem

    centurions used a shield lol!

    I think maybe adding a gladiator class for wider appeal would be cool? would be dual wielding, lightish/ragged armour

    perhaps centurions second right hand weapon can be the magic catalyst that you buy from vinheim as it is reminiscent of a vine can

    if it is going to be based on the legion then i think that leaving gladiators out is probably best bet seeeing as most of them were slaves although you would see a fair few citizens who left the army and tried their luck at gladiatorial fights in order to gain more money.

    perhaps an idea for a rival faction though? youve got the channelers trident if you want to be a retiarius and then just take of any torso armour and have a buckler such as a gargoyle shield

    Have to make them stand out more somehow xP a dual weilding option would be abailable to all roles i think, and i dont think i made a mage role yet either.

    What about adding:
    -A Mercenary/slave class that has complete freedom
    Of weapon and armor
    or
    -Berserker class- no shield, dual axes/hammers and 2H weapons recommended. Just Giants Helm and bare chest.

    I like the frumentarii being a spy or scout role, they could double as mages and have a different uniform aswell. (Black leather & Eagle shield?)
