Military Academy

These tough warriors and soldiers have only one task: keeping their commander alive and well in the swirling chaos of battle.

A general can only do his duty properly if these men keep rough and unpleasant fellows from interrupting his calm deliberations about how to kill as many of the enemy as possible for as little loss as possible.

Only the most loyal and fiercest fighters are assigned to a general’s bodyguard. Good manners are a bonus, of course, but a strong sword arm and a deadly aim are more use! Their equipment is generally of the finest quality, and their pay is often supplemented from the general’s own pocket: they have a sound financial interest in keeping him alive, as well as their honour in carrying out a duty successfully!
