Hi folks! I would like to ask other players and GMs about an aspect of using Rose and Cross Knights in your campaigns.
The Rose and Cross seems like a great Secret Society for players who want to be wandering "Knights Errant" having adventures and doing good deeds all across Theah. But there have been a few interesting references in both 1st and 2nd edition to Rose and Cross Knights who also serve in other organizations. For example, the Core Book mentions five R+K Knights serve as members of Empereur Leon's personal bodyguard in Montaigne, and in 1st edition one of the later books had the Grand Master of the Order also serve as Captain of the Musketeers in Montaigne for a time.
I'm currently doing background for a new player character concept, and based on his background it might be interesting to have him serving as a royal guard and a R+K Knight at the same time, or being forced to resign from the Guard and seeking out the R+K to join them. So I was wondering:
1. Have any of you run or played in games as Hero R+K Knights who are also dual members of other groups like the Montaigne Musketeers?
2. If so, how did it work? Does this help provide more role-playing/adventure opportunities or did it cause problems for the group?
3. How did the GM handle the player's dual obligations to the R+K and their public regiment/unit/organization?
Thanks! Any feedback would be most welcome, as I've never been in a campaign that heavily involved the Rose and Cross, but might want to in the future.
