Since there has been a land to protect, the Royal Basin has produced the soldiery to stand under its banner and walk its borders. Since there have been nobility they have raised armies for war. Since there has been religion its Priests have trained warriors to fight or their deity. Since there were Sourcerers the Colleges have created enforcers to protect them. Since the world was imperilled the people of the South have stood in its defence. They have marched across the continent to protect the lives of citizens of Daer Akmir. The soldiery of the Royal Basin is feared beyond measure, this nation has known nothing but war since its inception and they have become damn good at it.
