The plan is that simple. It is the challenge for men to grow in Christ as a man and then to help other men grow in Christ as well. It truly develops a "Band of Brothers. When you catch that vision, it is formalized by joining with a band of brothers committed to do the work to complete the mission and be commissioned as a Champion of Honor. All of the books listed in the Curriculum have been approved and count towards commissioning.
The commissioning of a man has specific requirements to round out his journey and a Champions sword is presented to the man upon completion of discovering his Biblical masculinity in this process. At that point, the church should order the sword to apply for commissioning. He will then be recognized in a commissioning service. After the man has been commissioned, we encourage the church to continue developing the plan and award to recognize the men as they grow in Christ. Timber by www. The Champions of Honor process starts with a commitment. This is where the books come in.
Following a brief scuffle, Eddison Tollett summons the wildlings back to Castle Black and with their support places the mutineers under arrest for their betrayal. A letter from Ramsay demands her return to Winterfell , threatening to massacre every wildling at Castle Black, let his men rape Sansa and feed Jon and Rickon Stark to the dogs if he should refuse.
Tormund asks how many men Ramsay has in his army and Sansa responds that she heard Ramsay say 5, Jon asks Tormund how many he has who can fight and Tormund responds the Free Folk have 2, fighters south of the wall, not enough to face House Bolton 's 5, soldiers alone. Sansa convinces Jon to try to unite the houses of the North behind him, as he is the son of a legitimate Warden of the North.
Jon agrees so they can rescue Rickon and save their home. As of the third episode of Season 6 , Jon is no longer part of the Night's Watch as he has resigned after his assassination, his death marking the end of his watch. He intends to rally as much of Westeros as he can, which will aid the Night's Watch in the imminent battle against the army of the dead. After the Breaching of the Wall , the Night's Watch abandon their castles and travel south towards Winterfell to aid in its defense.
Eddison perishes in the Battle of Winterfell. With the extinction of the White Walkers , the purpose of the Night's Watch has been served. After reaching Castle Black, he reunites with Tormund and Ghost. He leaves along with the Free Folk for the lands beyond the Wall, looking forlornly when the gate of the keep closes behind him. Men of the Night's Watch are divided between three different orders: the Rangers, the Builders, and the Stewards.

Each castle of the Night's Watch also has a maester assigned to it. These maesters take the oath of the Night's Watch and are considered full black brothers, but are not considered part of the three orders. Given that there were never more than nineteen castles along the Wall, there were never more than nineteen maesters in the Night's Watch at any one time. Since there are only three active castles on the Wall in modern times, there are now only three maesters in the Night's Watch at a time. The leader of the Night's Watch is the Lord Commander.
Each Lord Commander serves for life, and a new Lord Commander is democratically elected by other members of the Night's Watch in a Choosing.
It is unknown if there is any formal procedure to depose a Lord Commander and elect a new one, in cases where the current Lord Commander violates his oaths or is deemed medically unfit to lead, etc. Recruiters commonly known as " Wandering Crows " travel to the cities of southern Westeros to gather up new recruits to join the Night's Watch. In recent years, most of these tend to be criminals, murderers, rapers, and thieves taken from the dungeons of major cities and towns. A few also join because they are desperately poor and have no other better options.
Once in a great while a younger son or bastard son of a major noble House will decide to join the Night's Watch, but they can often afford to travel to the Night's Watch on their own initiative - such as Jon Snow a bastard and Waymar Royce a third-born son. Recruiters are few in number, and they are not considered a separate order in the Night's Watch. Instead, they are drawn from trusted members of the three orders, often those who can no longer fight well due to injuries but who can still travel. Late in the reign of King Robert Baratheon , the Night's Watch had dwindled to under one thousand members - many of them composed of old men, untrained boys, and convicted felons.
While there are nineteen castles along the Wall, the Watch only has enough men to continue to man three of them: their headquarters Castle Black in the middle, the Shadow Tower at the western end, and their port Eastwatch-by-the-Sea at the eastern end.
Furthermore, with the breakout of The War of the Five Kings, recruitment for the Watch was drastically reduced. The Watch took severe losses in Jeor Mormont's disastrous expedition beyond the Wall, losing nearly men as a result. Combined with heavy losses during the Battle of Castle Black , as well as losses from other wildling attacks, by the time that King Stannis Baratheon arrives at the Wall the entire organization consists of only around members left.
The Watch suffers further losses after the massacre at Hardhome and the mutiny at Castle Black, leading Jon Snow to order the surviving wildlings to help garrison the remaining castles, likely raising their numbers by a few hundred. However, much of this new strength is lost at the breaching of the Wall, with only a dozen left alive from Eastwatch.
There are nineteen castles spread out along the southern face of the Wall as bases for the Night's Watch. Patrols from these castles would travel along the top of the Wall watching for threats from the north, or repairing damage to the Wall. Each castle also contained a tunnel cut under the Wall, through which scouting parties would travel to the north to track wildling movements.

As the Night's Watch dwindled over the centuries, however, most of these castles were abandoned, and their tunnels sealed with ice. In Season 3 also appears the ruin of was was once the Nightfort. The Gift is a region to the south of the Wall under the direct control of the Night's Watch. It lies at the northern edge of the region known as the North. It was donated to the Night's Watch by House Stark when the order was founded thousands of years ago, in order to support the Night's Watch with food and provisions.
The Gift is officially not subject to the authority of Winterfell, and is technically not part of "The North", but is a special administrative zone directly ruled by the Night's Watch. The Gift is sparsely populated by only a handful of smallfolk , as most have relocated to the south over the generations while the Night's Watch dwindled and wildling raiding parties over or around the Wall increased in frequency.
The northern areas closer to the Wall are almost completely empty. The closest significant settlement near the Wall is Mole's Town , located a few miles down the Kingsroad from Castle Black. The original headquarters of the Night's Watch was the Nightfort , the first castle built at the Wall, and thus for thousands of years, it was where the Lord Commander of the Watch resided.
A little over two hundred years before the War of the Five Kings, during the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen , the Night's Watch abandoned the Nightfort because they could no longer maintain it with their dwindling resources. Instead, they relocated their headquarters to Castle Black, where all subsequent Lords Commander were based.
When joining the Night's Watch, all members must swear the following oath, either in a sept if they are of the Faith of the Seven , or before a heart tree if they follow the Old Gods of the Forest. Hear my words and bear witness to my vow. Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
The Night's Watch is grievously under-strength by the beginning of the book series, having fallen from 10, when Aegon the Conqueror invaded to less than 1,, divided into three garrisons at Castle Black soldiers , the Shadow Tower soldiers and Eastwatch-by-the-Sea less than soldiers. This further reduced the Night's Watches ranks to only men, and perhaps worse, killed off most of their senior officers and best warriors, including Lord Commander Jeor Mormont himself.
The expedition force consisted of one hundred men from the Shadow Tower and two hundred men from Castle Black. After the Battle of Castle Black , the Night's Watch takes a headcount: their entire manpower including the garrisons at Eastwatch and the Shadow Tower has been reduced to brothers. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. The Night's Watch has no heraldic symbol , to emphasize its sworn duty to be removed from petty politics of one lordly House or another, but to defend the lands of men as a whole.
Thus, the Night's Watch uses solid black on its banner and shields, which symbolize the erasure of any allegiance to noble Houses. Even the "uniform" of the Night's Watch is to wear solid black clothing; members from wealthier families often buy all-black clothing before leaving for the Wall, while poor conscripts have their clothing simply dyed black when they reach the Wall clothing which isn't always well-suited for cold weather. Solid black specifically denotes the rejection of heraldry, and is therefore strictly speaking not a "symbol" in and of itself, but the absence of a symbol.
