Charter

The time is Now.
The division between the gods happened so long ago that most don't even remember how it all happened. All that matters now is that the followers of the three gods are at a constant state of war. The followers of Leto will kill the followers of Angelique and Barnabas whenever they get a chance, and visa versa. The followers of Leto were wild and chaotic, unpredictable at best. Leto was considered the smartest of the three gods and his followers seemed to come from less than honorable circles. Most followers of Leto came from the wrong side of town they were great warriors with charismatic leaders who would break all rules to become the strongest and the best.

War raged in every kingdom. No one was afforded peace. Some kingdoms grew large and strong from these wars other shrank and became weak. In the past there was always a balance between the three faiths. There was always a strength to be found within each of the faiths. But that was not true anylonger. The years of a balanced war were long gone. Now year in and year out the balance has been broken. It seems as though now only one faith becomes strong while the other two are left to fight over scraps. This is the type of year we have been having. Within each faith the followers divide themselves into different clans or guilds. They build their kingdoms close to one another and fight as one. Normally each faith has at least one guild amoungst them that is comprised of large strong kingdoms. But now in these dark times only guilds of one faith have any strength, and that is the faith of Angelique this year. For the followers of Leto it has been a tough and tring year so far...but it is not over yet. The winds of change are upon us and a new day is about to begin in which there is a new guild that will fight under the banner of Leto.

This is the dark times in which a new leader will step forward. This is the setting for when a new guild is born. It was time for the followers of Leto to have a new guild, a safe haven in which they could build and then strike out against the other stronger faiths. It is fitting that a new strength shall come to Leto in these most chaotic times. The Legion will rise out of chaos and embrace it we will gain strength though chaos, we will honor Leto through chaos.

It could have happened in almost any tavern, no one really knows which one it did happen in for sure. But it was in these desperate times that brought on these events.

The tavern is empty except for the barkeep. The doors open for the first time all evening and in walks a tired, blood soaked almost broken man. This man is Ford Prefect. Ford has been fighting for a guild that followed the great god Leto. But things were not going well. They were poorly organized and Ford had many fights with the leader of the guild he served. Ford did not like the way things were being done and he had finally had enough. Ford slowly walks into the bar and takes a seat never once looking up at the barkeep or saying a word. The barkeep has already poured an ale and set it down for him. Ford grabs the ale and drinks. After a couple long minutes of silence Ford finally looks up

I'm close to death. The heathens overrun us whenever they feel the urge. We fight hard...my men fight so hard but we can never win. Our faith is weak this guild is weak. My men deserve better

More silence fills the room. The silence is a sound in itself and for a while no one wants to break it up. Finally the barkeep can't hold his tongue any longer

Sir..............Where is everyone else? Will some of the other men be coming in tonight to join you?

Ford slowly looks up at the poor barkeep. He would just like some customers but these are dark times. Ford just shakes his head from side to side

I don't think anyone will be joining me. If they are not dead they are with their families tring to enjoy their company one last time for they will probably die soon. And those without families are still on guard tring to protect what little we have left. Our faith is weak. Leto is not happy with us. Our guild...our guild is not lead the way I would run it. We are being lead to our deaths

But Sir isn't there anything we can do?

Yes there is one thing and I'm not sure if it will even do any good. But it is something that I believe needs to be done. I think I can actually do some good...I hope I can do some good. I'm leaving........I'm leaving these lands this guild and I will start a new. I will build a new kingdom a strong kingdom and I will create a new guild. With myself as the leader......maybe......maybe we will be able to become strong............And if we don't at least I will know that I did it my way. I can't sit back any longer and see my men my allies die because we are lead by and idiot. I will take men under my flag, the flag of The Legion. Tonight my army and I march away from these lands and this guild, and we march towards a new future. A future in The Legion. We will from this night on be known as The Forty-Second Legion. And all those that come to my banner will be my Legionnaires.

Silence takes hold once again and this time it doesn't get broken. For things have just been said that can not be taken back now. Ford must now do as he has said. Ford finishes his ale gets up and walks out of the tavern. Will he return we do not know for the story has not ended it has just begun. Outside of the tavern Ford rides out followed closely by his Army, his own private Legion to all the lands in which the good people pray to the god Leto. He spreads the word. The word is that there is a new guild for the followers of Leto to join. A new legion set to march out and fight the heathens. The legion will be made up of only the most devoted followers of Leto. Ford himself will lead this legion and be it's General d'Armee. But he can not do it alone. If Leto is to rise to power once again he will need help. So Ford rides on putting up notices in every Leto town, near every back alleyway. The notices read:

To all who follow the great god Leto

Now is the time to rise up out of the chaos and fight as one. A new legion is forming. You can be part of that legion and do you're part for bringing Leto back to power. This legion will be lead by Ford Prefect. Anyone can join, everyone will be accepted, but if you prove yourself to be unworthy during battle you will be left behind in the chaos that we create. Come now true followers of Leto, come now and JOIN
