THE ROYAL ARMY OF WESTHOLM

We shall then defeat the whole lot of them in one go!”
The Royal Army of Westholm is the central pillar of military might in the human realm. It is the first organised human army formed by King Eadwine in the beginning years of reclamation. As a process of its institution it has turned the human realm into a formidable fighting force which has seen few defeats and has been dominant on the battlefield. At first an army solely of wiccan peoples, it has come to be the home for professional soldiers of all cultures such as the nornmen, nordeyr and even the lost vlachian people.
The men and women that fill the ranks of the army are professional soldiers, paid by salary every year with their own bunk and the ability to rise in society. It is extraordinary in that fact, the only place in Westholm’s society where men and women can go from peasant to gentrified nobility with honest service.

RANKS & STRUCTURE

OOC:
The Army of Westholm is at the centre of human politics. If you want to make a combat orientated human character (or elf, or dwarf) but be involved in human roleplay then look no further. The Army doesn't just allow you to rise in status, there are loads of organised training, wargames and skirmishes each week with a total of 16 events in the past 4 weeks.
