The Black Watch

The Black Watch or Royal Highland Regiment (RHR) is a military group seeking bring peace to the city of Malton by eliminating threats to our areas of operation (removing PKers (Player Killers) and/or GKers (Generator Killers)) and keeping the Zeds where they belong (outside). We enjoy the banter of survivors in secure, well lit buildings (we like to tip a few and chew the fat as much as anybody), so we work to ensure the safety of these locations. (Just to point out, although we are The Black Watch, our abbreviation is RHR)


We are a little different than most groups in that we are a hybrid of the 'sit and chat' groups that stay in a specific building, bantering back and forth, and the 'hard core military' groups that strive to eliminate any and all zeds. We realize that zeds are not going away. As long as they stay outside, we let them be. Our goal is to make friends, eliminate Player Killers, see a neighborhood go from red to green. Good Times!

We are not at open war with PKing groups however if any of our members are PKed we will take our revenge, as a one per one system. If continually attacked by members of a certain group or if they declare war on us then we will declare war back on that one group, as our motto is 'Nemo Me Impune Lacessit' which is Latin for "No man touches me with impunity". If known PKers and/or Gkers are operating within our area, we will hunt them down.

We are always in need of recruits, and are open to everyone so long as they are survivors (Not necessarily a survivor at the time of application but pro-survivor in the way you play). The Black Watch does things differently from other groups, we don't order you about, tell you where to kill, sleep etc. Everyone in The Black Watch is equal. We're not super strict or formal, and we always welcome a laugh but we do try to get the job done.

Oh, and we love bacon...


In its past incarnation, The Black Watch had divisions (Medics, Infantry, Scouts). The new Black Watch will be much more streamlined, with each member deciding where their strength lies. If you like to revive and heal, great! Want to hunt Pkers, fantastic! Like to 'cade buildings and tell jokes, welcome to the gang! We welcome all survivors.

It is recommended that in descriptions of members you write something about a sgian dubh (A Scottish traditional knife that was commonly worn in your sock or under your arm). It's our thing.

After a long period of inactivity, Walt Bodine has decided to try reviving this historic group. We currently number 3 active members, so are actively recruiting. A great opportunity to get in on the ground floor...


August 2009: The RHR has spent the last month in Mid East Malton, Primarily Tollyton , Roftwood and Stanbury Village and with the help of allies have held back the RRF from the SE and rebuilt, Woodrofe Mall, Hildebran Mall and Nichols Mall (well for a while).

September: The RHR has traveled to the NW of Malton and repaired many of the gray suburbs there.



On June 28 2008, at 12:28 AM The Streltsy declared war on us for no true reason other than that we are pro survivor and weaker than them. If a member of the Streltsy is seen he is to be killed on sight.

The next day their leader The Almighty Todd offered to make truce if the RHR ended all recruitment campaigns, Robert de Bruce turned down the offer as this would cripple the Black Watch and the Streltsy had not even fired a blow.

On July 25 2008 a member of The Black Watch in confusion of our policies attacked and killed a member of The Browncoats which resulted in a war starting on July 2.

Some time in June of 2009 the Black Watch entered a war with Cobra and ejected them from Eastonwood


In early July of 2008 a temporary Alliance was formed between The Black Watch and Paradox to work on missions in Tollyton.

On July 22 2008 The Black Watch formed an alliance with the Army Control Corps.

on July 23 2008 The RHR formed an alliance with The 22nd Regiment.

On August 11 an official alliance was made between The Black Watch and The Kilt Store (They gave us new Kilts!).

In mid August the RHR and Paradox began to work together and now have a formal alliance.

Battle Poem

Because of course nothings manlier than a poem.

   'Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
    Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
    Welcome tae your gory bed,
    Or tae Victorie!

    'Now's the day, and now's the hour:
    See the front o' battle lour,
    See approach proud Edward's power -
    Chains and Slaverie!

    'Wha will be a traitor knave?
    Wha will fill a coward's grave?
    Wha sae base as be a slave?
    Let him turn and flee!

    'Wha, for Scotland's king and law,
    Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
    Freeman stand, or Freeman fa',
    Let him on wi' me!

    'By Oppression's woes and pains!
    By your sons in servile chains!
    We will drain our dearest veins,
    But they shall be free!

    'Lay the proud usurpers low!
    Tyrants fall in every foe!
    Liberty's in every blow! -
    Let us do or dee!' '

That was a poem written by the Scottish Poet Robert Bruns, it was written in the language Scots below I've written a translation.

   'Scots, who have with Wallace bled,
    Scots, whom Bruce has often led,
    Welcome to your gory bed
    Or to victory!

    'Now is the day, and now is the hour:
    See the front of battle lower (threaten),
    See approach proud Edward's power -
    Chains and slavery!

    'Who will be a traitor knave?
    Who will fill a coward's grave?
    Who's so base as be a slave? -
    Let him turn, and flee!

    'Who for Scotland's King and Law
    Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
    Freeman stand or freeman fall,
    Let him follow me!

    'By oppression's woes and pains,
    By your sons in servile chains,
    We will drain our dearest veins
    But they shall be free!

    'Lay the proud usurpers low!
    Tyrants fall in every foe!
    Liberty is in every blow!
    Let us do or die!'
