The Armed Guard was a guild formed by Roger Warskull. It has a long and sad history to it. The story goes like this:

Long Ago at the beginning of the Caribbean, there awoke a man by the name of Roger Warskull. He mastered being a pirate almost immediately and decided to do something with his life. He decided to create an army. The Armed Guard was at max people when Warskull's enemies decided it was time to put him down. They destroyed his ship The Shadow and marooned him on Rumrunner Island. His best men ,including his Flag Lieutenant a Tyler Crossbones, fought to maintain control over the havoc and chaos of the rest of the guild. The enemies landed on the island and started to slaughter the weak members. During a ambush on Warskull's base camp he was shot in the soldier and with his dying breath gave command of the guild to crossbones. Crossbones soon crushed the enemies and traitors and started to hunt them down. One group of deserters fled with crossbones wife and burned his Tortuga house. They sailed to Port Royal under the command of the jealous Sergeant Joseph. Crossbones approached with his best men and killed all the deserters. Joseph shot Crossbones wife and fled, and to this day only Joseph and Captain Crossbones are alive to remember the story. Crossbones disbanded his guild and deleted his player but now two years later he has re emerged using his old name. He remade the guild and captains it as Prime Minister of Switzerland.

Switzerland is now named a real country! King Ryan the Legend has issued the Armed Guard as the main guild and armed force. Prime Minister Tyler Crossbones has issued Lieutenant John Scurvycastle as GOA (General of the Army) Feel free to join Switzerland just say so in the comments.

Noobcruit is a recruiting strategy that was formed on Friday by Prime Minister. It goes like this: First make your most trusted person online a gm and player friend them, then make a new pirate and have the gm make you an officer. Go around the Welcome Server and invite all the noobs. Keep doing that and your numbers will increase.

On Saturday Billy Scurvystealer addressed the Council. His request was help from the Armed Guard to fight the guild INFERNO. Council members Ryan, Rose, and Ice Heart agreed, council member Nigel Crossbones disagreed so help was granted to Billy's guild, Cult of Personality.

Newsletter June 23

Hey everyone! Check out this weeks News....

Rose Macmorgan, Traitor - Paragraph 1

The New King of Switzerland is..... - Paragraph 2

Joseph, friend or foe? -Paragraph 3

Recently Rose Macmorgan, wife of Ryan and Queen of Switzerland, has betrayed us for Amadeus Kwagar. This was a huge blow to Switzerland as it took away our ruling monarchs. Tyler and her were talking about the Swiss Royal Ball when she said that she was inviting Maggie and Kwagar, and she didn't care for Crossbones opinion. Crossbones later declared her an outlaw when she said she was joining Kwagar. Ryan soon left as well although he did divorce the traitor. The throne was open and a perfect time for a new king to emerge.

Switzerland has a new king! Matthew O'malley has taken the throne with Grace Wildscarlet as his Queen. Samuel O'malley is the new Prince of Zurich and future King! Former Prime Minister Crossbones has been given the position of Head of Military with his brother Alexander Nigel Crossbones serving under him. This new change gives Switzerland another guild, Golden Dukes.

Joseph, formerly most wanted changed his entire character. He realized that he is a native Vachira and serves loyally in Samuel O'malley's new guild, Vachira Legends. He works tirelessly to remove the EITC from Kingshead. But Lord Crossbones doesn't know what to think about this. He says not to worry though, Joseph may yet to be a friend.

Resignation of Matthew O'malley : Paragraph 1

Yesterday, at about 10 AM Matthew I of Switzerland, resigned. It was a sorry sight to see. In the next paragraph, is his resignation letter. Note : you may have to highlight to read due to the color of the font.

Dear Citizens of Switzerland,

I, King Matthew Louis O'malley-Goldtimbers the First, choose to resign my crown to a more worthy man. This man has proven himself an able-bodied diplomat and soldier. Firstly, I come to this decision at the knowledge that, due to previous corruption in my country, I am extremely limited with my options of control. Secondly, the on-going struggle with claims from the Spanish, I find my self stumbling for a way out of their so-called original ownership of Switzerland. Sadly, the latter has proven beyond human ability


From the desk of Admiral Ironshot

All men, Armed Guard is no longer Swiss so we are pulling out under Lord Crossbones’s orders. The location will be classified and you will be PM on Wiki Chat on the Location. We will be at arms the entire way, and we will be sailing under a unknown flag. We ask Marc Cannonshot to provide us with a escort due to our small navy during the Empire War.

- Admiral C. Ironshot, Admiral of the Armed Guard fleet.

July 24 Newsflash

Armed Guard is becoming part of Switzerland after a conspiracy by Ishmael Volkov to steal the crown from Matthew. He entered Bern Manor and was allowed in for being the ambassador from England. He took Matthew and threatened to kill Matthew if Matthew didn't write a resignation.

See you all next week! - Armed Guard Press

August 7th Newsletter

Admiral Ironshot's rant ( Paragraph 1 )

Start of trying to get Armed Guard on POTBS ( Paragraph 2 )

The return of Roger Warskull ( Paragraph 3 )

Paragraph 1

Alright. We all know the drill here. Seedlings try and vandalize the wiki. ( Trust me I hate it as much as any of us do ) Pears Declared war on Great Britain. And in turn, the allies declared war on Spain. I doubt that we can have peace for ONE day. If we do have peace for a day, if you play POTBS I will pay you 10000 dbs each! So, next in my rant, Kwagar is trying to take Switzerland. Why can't he make do with the land he has? Its basically WWII again except it isn't Axis vs Allies. Its Norway vs Switzerland. Savvy? I wish that there was a day where he would stop taking everyone's' land. I end MY rant.

Paragraph 2

Since I am a sort of high ranking man with Tyler, I ask to bring Armed Guard to Pirates of the Burning Sea. It is a game that will allow us to play as Navy where we will not have to fight EITC and Navy for quests. ( Not really a paragraph I know. )

Paragraph 3

Roger Warskull is back everybody! Watch out, for if you make Tyler or Roger mad, bad things are in store for you. At the ceremony Tyler Crossbones says "The return of my cousin, Roger, makes Switzerland perhaps one of the most powerful countries in role-play these days!"

Thanks for reading. - Armed Guard Press

We are back, but only for a short time as we will explain bellow:

Peace with the Empire - Paragraph 1

Co. Elite Officers - Paragraph 2

Paragraph 1:

Recently on October 9, the Armed Guard made peace with the Empire and they are now allies. Emperor Kwagar and King Crossbones met and confirmed it with a treaty. King Tyler comments to the press after leaving the meeting, "I am very pleased with the Alliance as it will end the Empire War that has been fought from the end of Ryan's reign to the beginning of mine. It resulted with heavy losses to our respective militaries, so this is quite an unexpected and great turn of events."

Paragraph 2:

General Jason Blademorgan and Lord Governor Tyler Crossbones have intercepted messages that the Spanish are rebuilding and will soon attempt to make war upon the United Role-Playing Nations (URPN) which includes the two world powers, France and England. After this message was intercepted, the spanish tried to get Switzerland to join their cause. Blademorgan and Crossbones concluded that they must make a new East India Trading Company guild to fight the Spaniards, which will be called the "Co. Elite Officers".

October 17th Newsletter

A few new changes, find out here!

Ironshot Retires - Paragraph 1

The guild is restored - Paragraph 2

Co. Elite Officers disbanded - Paragraph 3

The Third Rebellion - Paragraph 4

Paragraph 1:

Recently, Admiral Christopher Ironshot has decided to leave Switzerland. He was reported to have been meeting with Romanian Agents, and soon later he blocked King Crossbones. He then deleted his relations with the Swiss government. King Crossbones awaits his resignation form, as if it is not turned in, he will be dishonorably discharged from the Swiss.

Paragraph 2:

King Crossbones and General Warskull have decided to restore the guild to it's former glory. Therefore, all members were deleted save the people with the uniform over level 15. It went from 120 people to 40 people in less then an hour. Now, they recruit fine soldiers into the guild to prepare to help the Swiss become powerful once again.

Paragraph 3:

The Co. Elite Officers idea that was created by Jason Blademorgan was called off this week. Now, England is based in the British Black Guard. However, the Armed Guard has cut of it's ties for the English and are now a full-time Swiss guild.

Paragraph 4:

On the 15th of October another rebellion was formed. It is the third in Swiss History, but it was a failure. The recently promoted Richard Venables attempted to please Queen Elizabeth of Sweden by sparking a riot. He gained a small army in Jura but they were immediately put down by the elite Alpen Guard along with the 10th and 4th Regiments.
