Cynis: The Southreach Saga
The LordProtector controls two military organizations. The primary military power in Southreach is the Army. The Navy is much smaller but provides very important control and defense of the waters near Southreach.
Due to the rugged and hilly terrain around Southreach, the Army is limited to infantry, both light and heavy, and archers. While the scouts and messengers do use horses for rapid movement, cavalry doesn't exist.
