Longship Guard

Ready to fight, the best, strongest and most loyal men have sworn their lives to the defence of the High King, their Jarl, their country and home. Loyal to the end, never asking questions, these men prefer to fight in the old ways, designing it more honourable. They prefer to suffer losses than to use guns and bombs.

 

Still, they are much feared among the pirates and slaveholders of these islands. Swift and quiet, strong and fast, they still win most battles.

 

I am so proud of these men. Five of the strongest, fastest, swiftest and most loyal men never leave my side. Sometimes I find it annoying, but it makes me feel very safe.

My Lady High Priestess,

 

I fear that women are disproportionately represented in the Guard. Anecdotal evidence suggests this is due the Imperial Armed Forces' egalitarian, or even pro-women, policies make those armed forces more appealing. A local saying here is "The Empire's for the womenfolk, the islands for the men".
