Coming from many backgrounds, one thing every member of the Royal Homeland Constabulary (RHC) has in common is the rigorous training that must be endured. No individual is enlisted in the RHC without this training, which includes:
Agent trainees study a broad range of subjects that grounds them in the fundamentals of law, ethics, interviewing and report writing, basic and advanced investigative and intelligence techniques, and interrogation.
- Case Exercises
Case exercises are used to test the trainees’ mettle in real-life situations and mirror what they will experience in the field. For example, the students are given an integrated case scenario that starts with a tip and culminates in the arrests of multiple subjects. The investigation plays out on the streets of Hogan’s Alley, the mock town at the Academy that features hired bards playing criminals and Danorian Agents. Trainees also get the chance to present evidence in a moot court.
- Combat Training
All RHC agents are expected to defend themselves and the citizens of Risur at any time. RHC agents will frequently be called upon to perform in combat situations, from subduing a drunken vagabond, to enemy agent neutralization, to small unit combat. RHC agents must have the ability to make split-second decisions in life-or-death situations, and support their fellow agents to ensure success of the mission. Training courses are specialized to the trainee in question, as the RHC values the individuality and diversity of it’s agents.
- Operational Skills
This concentration includes everything from small unit tactics to surveillance…from physical fitness to tactical mount control. Tactical mount control techniques are provided at our Tactical Emergency Mount Operations Center at the Academy.
- Mental Assessment
Before being accepted as an Agent of the RHC, all applicants must successfully complete a battery of mental examinations, both magical and mundane, for the purposes of ensuring loyalty and the utmost devotion to the nation of Risur and her King.
