A Lothern Sea Guard regiment.

The Lothern Sea Guard are a elite fighting force of the High Elf kingdom of Eataine as a standing part of their military, serving in both their army and navy. [1a][2a][5a]

Capabilities

When the armies of Ulthuan make war it is often the ships of Lothern that carry them and any beachheads are siezed by the Sea Guard. [1a] They are highly skilled at advancing from their ships, moving through the foam in formation onto shore with spears raised and bows ready. [5a]

The Lothern Sea Guard are capable of fighting as effectively on land as on sea, and are equally resolute defending the walls of Lothern as battling across the decks of Elven warships. Armed with both spears and bows, the Sea Guard are a formidable, well-drilled fighting force - combining the best aspects of Elf Spearmen and Archers.[2a]

Locations

  • Barracks: Large well equipped barracks are found in Lothern, elegant but functional buildngs but easily defended with their Eagle Claw Bolt Throwers in towers and mounted on the roof. [5a]

Notable

  • Storm Riders: A renowned company who have gained a reputation for ruthless boarding actions. [1b]

Rotation

Each regiment normally spends three seasons a year at sea and on season at home training, recruting and patrolling the city - this duty is especially important as it is the only part of Ulthuan that non elves are permitted. [5a]
