Description

The Armed Forces were both the army and police combined. The soldiers, or Guardsmen as they were called, upheld the laws and regulations within the borders of Elmwood and protected the nation from foreign threats. They were known for their courage and fighting-spirit, even when facing overwhelming odds.

The Guardsmen swore allegiance to the Nation of Elmwood, the people of Elmwood and the Chancellor of Elmwood.

History

The Armed Forces were founded in 436 III by Sir Duncan, the first Chancellor of Elmwood. At fist they consisted of a crowd of local farmers proficient with clubs and scythes, later becoming a disciplined organisation consisting of skilled soldiers.

Elmwood was dissolved on hte 28th of Thilian 910 III due to a plot by the Church of Garagor, who manoeuvred their own candidate into power. Soon thereafter the nation was announced to be no more, and a Barony bearing the name of the man in power, Stern, was formed out of the keep. The rest of the region formed various city-states. The Armed Forces ceased to exist with the nation of Elmwood. Some of the guardsmen remained in service of the Barony, while others sought service in Brunir's Cross or in Teardrop village.
