Heroes for Hire
The Border Legion
The frontier is the home of the border legion. They are the finest military force in the empire, and perhaps the world. Most legionnaires are born on the frontier, though some disenchanted youths travel north from the five cities to join the legion.
The Legion makes extensive use of explosives procured from Clan Doomhammer. Small units of engineers wreak havoc on more traditional forces with these devices.
A typical Legionnaire is armed with a crossbow, short sword, small shield and scale or banded armor. In short, they are shock troopers specializing in brutally efficient tactics. Having said that, there is no such thing as a “typical” Legionnaire, over their years of service they pick up weapons, tactics and tricks that most armies wouldn’t think of using.
When facing Legion forces, it’s a bit like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re going to get, but some things are always certain. They are disciplined and ruthlessly efficient.
Long ago the Legion adopted a policy of promoting based upon merit, there are no dynasties, or purchased commissions making even a small Legion detachment s truly fearsome foe.
