The Co. Black Guard was the official EITC guild for two Administrations of EITC Lord Governors. Lord Governor Samuel Redbeard (who later changed his title to Lord Marshal to show his dominance of the British Military) ruled the EITC from this guild during the Paradoxian War (1739-1745) during a major hostile time for the Company. Lord Governor Johnny Goldtimbers later restored this guild and used it for his Administration for the duration of his second term as Lord Governor during 1747.
The Co. Black Guard was created by Leon Goldtimbers (Captain Leon), a EITC rogue whom created the guild to gain support for his rebellions. The EITC Lord Marshal (title later renamed Lord Governor) at the time ;Samuel Redbeard devised a plan to acquire ownership of the guild in an elaborate plan called; . During the Paradoxian War, Samuel operated out of this guild, regulating EITC trade, commanding and moving his forces, and creating new ideas to be put into affect with his Administration. Near the height of the war; Redbeard soon after created a new guild to expand company interests to which was named; Beckett's Elites and placed Johnny Goldtimbers as GM of Co. Black Guard but during the recruiting process Redbeard assassinated (terminated) through unknown means.
Through a remarkable twist; the EITC carried on and with the multiple guilds created under Redbeard's administration; the EITC combined its' military to form their armada to combat the rising threats of the Spanish. The guild grew to full capacity with 50 - 60 members online daily within a month.
This guild is the main guild of the EITC and the British Empire after the abandonment of British Co. Elites. It held 500 members and was led by Lord Johnny Goldtimbers & his Administration.
