Pantheon of Heroes
Jian Empire tradition taught military tactics to the various house and city militias. However, various campaigners and soldiers took these tactics and created non-state companies of 200-1000 on average soldiers. All of them have various levels of respectability based on strength and integrity. They serve as guardians of new settlements, expeditionary forces for eastward expansion, guardians of local houses and farmland. They are contracted for set periods of time and their fees are dependent on reputation, size, and difficulty of the jobs presented. Some of the charters have existed for hundreds of years since the arrival of the Jian Empire. Each have a captain, and most have their own vessel which flies the red and white of Alleria and their own flag below it.
Chartered Companies of Alleria
Companies in Allerian tradition are smaller on average, and often are used to scout or explore ancient cities in the depths of old Alleria. They range from 100 to the size of an average adventuring party, and are chartered by the government. The Stalwart League offers many such charters, but non league companies also exist.
