    About Us

    The 1st Massachusetts Cavalry Company A, is an active and fun roleplay community for War of Rights. We accept players from anywhere as long as you are able to come on everyone and a while to do some drilling or skirmishing. We aren't very strict as a community, but we try to keep discipline in game. The Company was first formed on April 15th, 2017, and is still very well and alive. We excpect all our recruits to show respect for all members of the company regardless of rank. We have a company training every Friday at 7pm EST, and a Sunday Community Event everyweek, but every other day we like to hop on a server and do some drills or play in a skirmish. We play as the cavalry units in game, since there arent horses added to the game yet we play using skirmisher tactics. The 1stMA Company A is made up of 2 Platoons. 1st Platoon is lead by 2nd Lieutenant Custer, and is the larger platoon. Second Platoon is lead by, 1st Lieutenant Park, being the smaller platoon but consists of better quality troops. As of now in game the platoons arent put to much use. We all play as one unit. Our Company Commander is, Captain William Murray, the founder and leader of group.
