19te Prussian Infantry
The 19te Prussian Infantry was formed by our first Hauptmann, Joshly, and a small number of members in April 2011. They, being veterans of other Mount and Musket regiments, wanted to create an atmosphere of respect, fun, and entertainment while playing MM. They achieved this by focusing on using great teamwork and tactics while playing the game. Two years later, our goals remain the same – to provide that same sense of comradery in and out of NW and into our other games we play. Our rank structure promotes a meaningful, but not overdone, organization and couples with our focus on using historical line tactics.
We boast over three years of experience, and over this time, the regiment is anything but average. We consistently welcome new players and focus on bringing gentlemen in that mesh with our attitudes and ideals. Many of those members have stayed and remain here to this day. Rank advancement is possible – we have no set limit for any ranks, and take those that can showcase their capabilities in and out of game, and have shown dedication to the regiment over time. We respect and ask that all new members respect everyone I this community, and we endeavor to achieve this goal daily. In addition to our consistency in Napoleonic Wars, we play a wide variety of games and encourage members play together. We have members that span multiple time zones, so in the event you’re staying up late, we are certain that you will have someone to play with! Our current list of games changes consistently, so if you are even remotely interested in playing with us, please contact one of the recruiting liaisons below!
There is a simple process for any and all interested in joining the 19te. When you go to our website, http://19te.enjin.com, you’ll see a “Join Here” tab. Press that and fill out the forms. Please be mindful of the general rules at the top of the application when you apply. Although we have fun, we ask that all members follow the rules and adhere to them. If you have any questions or would like to play with us to get to know how we operate, please add one of the many Recruiting Liaisons on Steam, shown below. Furthermore, our TeamSpeak is ts3.1stepi.com. We use that in conjunction with Steam to coordinate events and trainings. We ask that all members try to stay in and socialize with our members.

Another way that our members participate in the 19te is through applying and playing in “roles” during linebattles. We have two – “Pfunder”, or our artillery, and “Hussar”, our cavalry. Instead of most regiments that have separate ranks for these special roles, we designate our members by the addition of a extra three letters: "Pfd" and "Hsr". These members have been tried and true in the 19te, they must be competent of all formations as a soldier, and they must show initiative to lead or coordinate, if necessary. After a prospect applies, they go through a similar process to be accepted. After being accepted, they will have the opportunity to coordinate trainings, 1v1s (Hussars), and play in a specialty role during line battles. The officer corps has the right to determine who plays the specialty roles at the onset of events, in an effort to expose potential prospects.
(Rkt): A Rekrut is the 19te’s entry position of the regiment, the member has officially passed the applicant stage into joining the ranks. The person will be promoted to Soldat when they demonstrate a good understanding of our formations and regiment in its entirety.
(Sdt): A Soldat is an official soldier of the 19te. Soldats have a basic understanding of formations and the organization of the regiment. They are known my some members and come to events consistently.
(Gmr): A Gemeiner is classified as an exceptional Soldat who have progressed through their learning of basic commands and are working on understanding the organization of the regiment better, taking leadership in a pinch, and learning the more complex formations. These men differ from Gefreiters in that they still have things to learn, but are well on their way.
(Gfr): Gefreiters are members that understand all ranks and, for the most part, ranking structure. They rarely falter and demonstrate their understanding by taking commanding positions when all officers are down. These men are allotted opportunities such as having a designation at this point of their career.
(Ofr): Obergefreiters are our most seasoned soldiers. They conduct themselves without flaw, know all formations and the organization of the regiment, and are the perfect example for newer members. This prestige rank is for only those members who have shown themselves worthy of such an honor.
(Uffz): Unteroffiziers are newly-commissioned officers. They look after the lower ranking members by ensuring they follow orders, display good conduct, and maintain discipline within the ranks. They are beginning their career in leading the line, conducting trainings, and assisting in general administrative items. They are also seen as a point of contact for recruitment, events, or other items that newer members may be interested in learning.
(Fw): Feldwebels are our senior NCOs. They look after the Unteroffiziers and assist the Leutnants with administrative items. They are trusted officers that lead trainings and linebattles, assist in creating events, and typically are entrusted with much more responsibility, should they be interested (e.g., forum management). Furthermore, they typically handle the unruly or ill-disciplined members, if necessary.[/td]
(Lt): Leutnants are the first executive rank in the officer corps. They lead the administrative duties such as linebattles, forum/website management, relations with other regiments, and are a standard of our core values in the regiment. They work together with the other officer corps to hand out tasks as necessary and continually think of ideas to better serve the regiment.
(Olt): The Oberleutnant is the “Lead Leutnant”. Instead of being second-in-command he is the chosen Leutnant to guide the rest. The Oberleutnant is well respected inside and outside of the regiment and will work in tandem with the Hauptmann to make decisions and follow through on actions.
(Hptm): The Hauptmann is the leader of the regiment, who gathers the opinions of other officers and, though not being a “tyrannical position,” ultimately has the final say and runs the show.[/td]

1. Members will be respectful at all times. This means getting along with every player - public or not. We do not tolerate discrimination or malicious insults. If you are to have an argument, do it in a respectful and professional manner. We will take pride in our public image and will remove any who choose to stain it.
2. Members will always play fair and respectfully. We do not tolerate actions such as cheating, dragging rounds out, fake surrendering, and Teamkilling. Teamkilling is forbidden in every form except a genuine accident.
3. Members will follow orders when they are given, by officers and Admins alike. We do not have time to listen what you think is best after the orders are given. Instead, remember it or write it down. We will have a time and place for suggestions. If you are instructed by an Admin to do anything, you will abide.
4. Members are required to use TeamSpeak for Trainings and Linebattles (English only during events). We also encourage the use of TeamSpeak for any games you might be playing, but understand if you want to play alone.
5. Although it is not a rule, it is good conduct to inform an officer when you know you cannot attend or will be late to a training or event. This can be done through a post in the forums, a message on steam, or a simple chat on TeamSpeak.
We encourage all prospective members to apply on our website. On there are calendars that display event times, friendly conversations, and tons of other things we use to manage the regiment. It is a great place with many tools and our official roster.
