Porters and footmen seem more likely as heavy weapons guys. Just saying.



I'm thinking Gardners as heavy weapons and demolitions would work best, think about it, they can work with heavy equipment and fertilizer , wheel around a wheelbarrow with a rocket launcher in it, carrying around pots with grenades in them and so on.


I think they would be demolitions with some CQC since fertilizer can be made into bombs and gardeners do work with a lot tools that can be handy in CQC situations.

and with butlers and maids being elites and grunts, the Chiefs as support like medics, some sort of HQ, and the footmen could field an old artillery piece, After all the Soandsos are rich with military traditions. :lol:

I hear she comes from a military family with insanity in the blood Jeeves! and if that weren't enough she has commanding personality. What was mother thinking? " "....." "Tea for two than Sir?" "Yes." :P

No comment on any of this except to say if someone wants to do a kick starter and use us as their manufacturer and paid us up front, we'd probably do it for them. Maybe.

Sherlock Holmes was a beekeeper.

So Beekeepers should be consulting detectives.

Sharp objects and explosives, used to operating in vegetation and (on any decent sized estate) woodlands... maybe gardeners/groundskeepers/gamekeepers should be more like special forces? :)

I think we should focus more on the original proposal, since it has the most fluff backup. Also I agree with Lonnie, this is a "need kick starter" proposal if done at all.

"I think we got ahead of ourselves." "Indeed sir." :P
