Adventures in Ledevic
The enigmatic Autumn Wards view themselves as the protectors of the land, keeping watchful eye on the political and military goings-on of the realm. They do not necessarily seek to preserve the status quo, however, and often times are the arbiters of dramatic changes in power. They also protect the region from outside invasion, and are seen as largely responsible for the general pax Regijan. They are based from somewhere in the Kilpi Mountains.
Runners – Runners are messengers. Though technically tied for lowest rank, they are respected for their necessary service, and many runners also act as de facto ambassadors, more than mere emissaries.
Plebians – The lowest rank of the Wards, Plebians are the rank-and-file guards and minor bureaucrats.
Standards – A very minor promotion over Plebian, most Standards command one or two plebs on patrols.
Optio – Proven for their quick thinking and resourcefulness, the few Optios are scouts.
Centurion – Officers that control platoons of Optios, Standards, and Plebians.
Tribune – A higher officer that commands up to three Centurions and platoons
Patrician – Skilled negotiators rather than warriors, they serve as arbiters in many disputes.
Legates – High-ranking officers that control full companies.
Commanders – The highest rank, commanders serve as an executive counsel, and have the authority to assume direct command over any company or platoon at any time.
