Folian Guard (foe-lee-en gard)
The Folian Guard is a gateway to understanding our Faene way of life. From helping the weary villagers with their farming to safeguarding traveling caravans. They may not be trained to handle great looming threats but those are a rarity. They are trained to handle the everyday mundane work and are stronger for it.
Folian guardsmen are provided with an explorer’s pack. Their uniform is a green cloak with a hood.
Includes a backpack, a bedroll, a mess kit, a tinderbox, 10 torches, 10 days of rations, and a waterskin. The pack also has 50 feet of hempen rope strapped to the side of it.
A standard Folian Guard is equipped with a longbow, a quiver of 20 arrows, and a flyssa sword. Variants from Graylen under Count Dwindle’s discretion implement a musket with bayonet and a pouch with 15 shots.
Because of their training as a watch instead of a military unit, they are mainly trained to defuse the tension first as a possibility to avoid casualties. Otherwise, a squadron will attempt to surround a target while a bowman provides covering fire.
The Folian Guard is trained more for policing around towns and aiding the locals where it is needed. The Folian are given martial training but it is basic compared to a professional soldier, as the idea is to prepare them for thugs and nivallen attacks than an impending threat. This light amount of training allows for a lot of numbers into their ranks.
A standard Folian Guard is provided with a weekly 10 florens while officers are provided with 15 florens.
It’s not difficult if you’re looking to join the Folian Guard. Captains of their local towns and villages often are looking for anyone willing to protect and aid their fellow citizens.
