GUARD MINGLE

In the castle's training yard, a lieutenant of the guard lines up all the new recruits—meaning those who have arrived in the past few months, as well as a number of tall and strong women recruited from the kingdom itself.

The guard paces along them as she begins her speech. "I don't care what kind of self-styled champion or athlete you think you are. If you can't prove it to me, then you can't prove your worthiness to wear the Mistress. You want to keep your weapons? Your powers? Your enviable uniforms? Prove you deserve them.

"The Mistress is cruel and sadistic, yes, but fair to those she deems worthy. And some of you-" she focuses in on certain people, "-are standing on much shakier ground than the rest.

With that, she stops directly in front of them, gesturing emphatically to the assembled group.

"For the next month, I will whip you into shape. Literally, if I need to. You are going to sweat your weakness and insubordination out, or collapse trying."

And with that, training begins. Over the course of the month, under her intense attention, she subjects the guards to training sessions. Group calisthenics, laps around the castle, strength training, drills, sparring with practice weapons... and, once a week, the obstacle course.

What are the obstacles? You will crawl through mud, under brambles, climb over walls, maintain your balance on a tightrope, push barriers out of the way, and finally, a quick swim to victory.

All guards are expected to be in full uniform (though you're given leave to take the helm off). Stopping to adjust your outfit earns you a reprimand. Keep doing it, and you'll have to do more laps or whatever else she deems is good punishment.

And yes, people are watching from above. Sometimes with vague disinterest, sometimes with... far greater intensity.

((OOC: Catch-all mingle for guard activities this month! Of course, if you're an outlier or apprentice who happens to have business at the castle, or you heard about the drills, no one is stopping you from stopping by...))
