The barracks is the beating heart of the Rynmere military. Here the new recruits and the veterans alike train and learn the theory of strategy and tactics alongside the practicalities of most types of combat. Entrance to the Barracks is free and open for those in any branch of Rynmere's military forces, a courtesy afforded to each other out of necessity and expediency. Therefore, on any given trial one is likely to run into all sorts of warriors, many of whom are happy to train with a fellow protector of the kingdom. However, if one is not a member of the military, then entrance is not going to happen without an appointment, a reason, or a recommendation from someone with military standing.
That is not to say that the public are unable to use the barracks as a place of training, they are, however, there is a cost to training here and anyone wishing to learn must adhere to the lesson schedule without exception. Lessons are arranged at the convenience of the teacher, not the student and ever has it been so.
The barracks are, throughout, utilitarian and clean. There are areas which are devoted to training, to sleeping, to eating and to socialising and as is so often seen in military life, the knights, skyriders, and sailors who both train and live here have formed a family, and have a sense of shared identity. To military members, the training is free, as is the loan of basic equipment for training purposes (not to be taken out of the Barracks). To the general public however, the charge is 20gn per break, no matter who they are training with or with what weapon or style.
Note: Characters who start out as a knight (squire), skyrider (airman), or sailor, can use the city starter package to obtain a room in the living dormitories within the barracks. Men in one dorm, women in the other. The room is no bigger than a normal starting cottage, with a small kitchen, bathroom, single bedroom, and living space (open plan is fine).
