How the organization of the Continental Army will work. In here we will explain to you exactly how the CA functions so you can get a better understanding of it's inner workings.
Leaving Your Regiment
Leaving a regiment is common and everyone below the rank of Corporal has a right to leave their regiment whenever they please.
If a person is between the ranks of Corporal-MSGT (NCOs), they need permission from their HICOM to leave, they may be denied leave for up to 1 week with a valid reason, after which the HICOM must let them leave.
If a person is above the rank of Ensign and below the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, they need permission from the Colonel of their regiment. The colonel may deny permission to discharge for up to 2 weeks, given a logical reason, after which they must let them leave.
In a situation where it is evident that there has been an action for recruiting for another regiment using a sort of bribery or motive for speed-ranking or free-ranking, if the person chose to switch their regiment, the person of whom is trying to recruit the other person will be reported for corruption. This also applies if someone convinces another to abandon their regiment.
Leaving your regiment without following the rules that have been set by your Brigadier General or your Commanding General will result in a demotion to Militia and a Treason report.
Auto demoter & Inactivity
If you're not in a regiment for one week then you will get demoted by one rank. This is in order to make sure that everyone who holds a rank within the Continental Army is active. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you want to be inactive for a certain amount of time then you must ask for permission from a regiment officer. This is usually done in the way of an inactivity notice.
Cross Regimental Punishment
Because every regiment has it's own set of rules and punishments it's often difficult to punish people that are in a different regiment, in here it will be explained how to do it.
If a NCO / MP / Officer isn't able to deal with a crime or if it's so severe that it's worthy of a demotion then they must talk to an officer within the criminal's regiment. This officer will then decide on a punishment for the criminal.
If a NCO / MP / Officer sees a regimental officer commit a crime, they must then report it to the HICOM staff of that regiment. This must be done for every crime.
If HICOM commits a crime then MP must deal with it, they must then write up that HICOM member on the website. This must be done by a MP which holds an officer position within the Continental Army (Ensign+).
If a person commits a crime which is not in a regiment then they may be punished by any NCO / MP / Officer.
The HeadQuarters of the Continental Army consists of a (6-7) member Command Team in charge of running the Continental Army.
Aide-De-Camp: A brand new member of HeadQuarters. This rank was established to be moved around frequently to assist wherever is needed at that time. Someone will remain in this rank until someone above them retires, of which they then will move up and have learned many skills during their time as the Aide-De-Camp.
Brigadier General: Has been in the CA for a long time. Over the span of that time you have most likely ran a regiment, collected all the knowledge needed in the CA, and know every inch of the CA and how it works. A Brigadier General oversees a Brigade which consists of 2-3 regiments total. The Brigadier General is essential for ensuring that the CA is run properly, and is the direct middle man between HeadQuarters and the regiments.
Major General: Has been in the CA for an extreme amount of time. Over the span of your career you have collected many highlights and acolades to elevate yourself to the rank of Major General. You have probably been in the CA for about 9+ months at the least. You know the CA like the back of your hand and you have proven yourself to be a reliable HQ member. You're typically the best member in the HeadQuarters of the CA. The Major General ensures that their subordinate Brigadier Generals are performing to their standards and ensures that all regiments and running smoothly.
Commanding General of the Continental Army: This rank holds the highest power in the CA. GodTyrant oversees and commands all operations in the CA. Simply put, the Commanding General is the leader of the CA.
LRs cannot retire.
When NCOs retire they get automatically set to the rank of LCPL. They may choose to retire to a lower rank if they choose to.
When Officers retire they get automatically set to the rank of SSGT. They may choose to retire to a lower rank if they choose to. When Officers retire they get the ability to get recommissioned at a later date. However, that has to be approved by the CO of the regiment they are being recommissioned into. As well as the Brigades Brigadier General and Director of OA.
When HQ retire they get automatically set to the rank of Ensign. They may choose to retire to a lower rank if they choose to. When HQ retire they get the ability to get recommissioned at a later date. However, that has to be approved by the CO of the regiment they are being recommissioned into.
Note: You may not stop someone from retiring.
