Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle
By agreement with the duke, the town maintains its
own militia, trained by the duke’s soldiers. All ablebodied
townsfolk must serve in the militia, although
only a small number are normally on duty. They spend
most of their time on road patrols, though a close
watch is kept on the Lizard Marsh.
T he militia has trouble hanging on to its veteran
members. In search of more income, veterans will
often hire themselves out as mercenaries or caravan
guards. A few even take up adventuring careers.
