The Molir of Zietal Mar

Proposed by Marshal Khestor and signed by the First Local Overseer of Zietal Mar Kadol Ubbul.

What is a Molir?

A molir (pronounced mow-leer) is a holding's militia, guard and armed force comprimised of local dwarves-at-arms, volunteers who undergo training and martial consultants to, in short, defend their holding in times of necessity and is often synonymous with local law enforcement. Molir are among the oldest institutions in All Bormar, directly descended from the fighting forced of the ancient holds, it is not uncommon for them to command great respect and pride within their communities.

Its Purpose in Zietal Mar

Here we will expand on our Molir's functions and purpose, taking inspiration from General Terda Grolbreaker's orders to each and every dwarf-at-arms and adapting it to the needs of our holding.

Its duties in order of importance:

1. Safeguard the Outpost's general populace from harm.

2. Destroy any potential threats to the Outpost, both internal and external.

3. Maintain order in the Outpost, usually in its role as law enforcement.

4. Support relevant parties in ensuring the Outpost's wealth is kept safe, such as a Quartermaster.

5. Enact the relevant orders of the Outpost's Lord or Lady to allow them to fulfil their policies and wishes.

In any situation where one duty conflicts with another, the higher-ranking one is the duty that the Molir will attend to first.

Its Relation in the Political Realm

The Molir here in Zietal Mar is an independent institution which functions to fulful its duties as outlines prior to this section. It is directly commanded by the Marshal of the Holding but, in line with Duty 5, relays and enacts the wishes of the Outpost's Lord or Lady. When it comes to the Lower Chamber they have no jurisdiction over the Molir, however they may ask the Marshal for advice, opinions or reports on certain matters if necessary.

As an entity, the Molir is otherwise to behave as apolitical as possible at all times.

Structure of the Molir

The force is headed and directly commanded by the Marshal, although they may take the title of Captain - retaining the responsibilities of a Marshal in order to avoid power vacuums if the Molir is not yet well established.

The Ranks are as follows:

Marshal -> Captain -> Soldier -> Volunteer

The Marshal commands the full Molir and is responsible for organising the force in order for it to meet its duties and ensure that it is capable and effective.

A Captain tends to command a party of up to 4 Soldiers and 2 Volunteers.

A Soldier is a dwarf-at-arms who has been trained and accepted into the Molir.

A Volunteer is an ordinary citizen who has signe dup to help safeguard the Outpost.
