RHEYNISH
ROYAL ARMY

“As sure as the night, so too are times of peril to come, and for that, humanity must stand prepared.”
Rulgan of Tarragon


The Royal Army of Rheynland is one of many pillars that contributes to Avengard’s prosperity, its primary purpose consisting of keeping the King’s peace and protecting his subjects from threats, internal and external. The institution was established by King Edwyn in the early years after the Calamity. While at first throughout its ranks numbered mainly Wiccans, the force has grown into a formidable battalion of great diversity, enveloping many skilled soldiers in various fields.


THE FOUR BRIGADES

The fleet of the Lion
Due to Avengard’s geographical position upon the plane of Enarion, a stalwart naval brigade must be upheld. The Fleet comprises various classes of warships, of which each is maintained and maneuvered by a company of Rheynland’s finest sailors. The Fleet of the Lion is tasked with conducting defensive and offensive naval operations, whilst aiding the other units in the transportation of supplies or troops to theatres of war. They often must navigate treacherous passages, therefore the sailors must possess a profound comprehension of Enarion’s waterways.
Krakens, sirens and sea serpents - and the inland threat of the undead and King Valrond now banished, it is due time that Avengard turns its attention outward, to the sea, where creatures and pirates run rampant. A naval attack from unknown forces could spell carnage upon our lands and in order to avoid such a gruesome fate, the oceans must be tamed.



The Infantry
The infantry is the brigade of the greatest magnitude, comprising the majority of the army, it stands as the heart of the Rheynish forces, instrumental to its success and victories. As a result of its immensity, the infantry is crucial in the acquisition and defense of territories, typically undertaking the role of the advance guard. Moreover, the infantry behaves as the Kingdom’s policing force, responsible for the enforcement of law and the protection of the realm’s denizens.


Medics
To the physicians within the Rheynland Army, the health and well-being of their compatriots are of paramount importance. The medics are required to treat soldiers both on and off the battlefield, utilizing their extensive expertise to tend to injuries and wounds. Such a task requires utmost composure, as the battlefield is frequently chaotic. Moreover, during times of peace, the physicians may perform regular assessments of their brothers-at-arms’ fitness, ensuring that they are prepared should a conflict arise.

Riders of Norn
The Stallion bears a significant role in Rheyn and Nornish culture, and consequently, the cavalry is one of the most prestigious units in the military. Ascension to this unit requires an exceptional level of martial prowess, predominantly in the domains of marksmanship and equestrianism. Should a rider be dismounted from his steed, he is expected to recover swiftly and return to the conflict. They typically consist of a small scaling group, tasked with flanking the opposing party’s cavalry or infantry.







RANKS AND HIERARCHY

To maintain order in the King’s lands, so too the armed forces must exercise discipline, uniformity, and procedure. To clearly define the structure and the line of command, soldiers are divided into a hierarchy - beginning from the bottom, a recruit can work their way up the chain of command through their achievements, efforts, and experiences.
