Valen’s Company:
Approximate size: 80
Founded: 497 AI
Headquarters: Concordia
Description: founded by Haedren’s son, Valen, to guard the vessels of his mother’s shipping fleet. The company is composed of experienced sailors and soldiers from across the empire. Ships under the company’s protection will fly its banner among its flags, warning potential pirates and raiders. The company maintains a sterling reputation, with ships under its protection rarely coming under attack.

The Silver Hand:
Approximate size: 30
Founded: Unknown
Headquarters: None
Description: one of the more mysterious mercenary groups. The Silver Hand operates on the fringes of legality, often protecting or engaging in criminal activities. Members of the Silver Hand are contracted individually, making it difficult to gauge the exact size of the organization. It is rumored that they were contracted en masse by the warlord of Ikwe to enforce his rule. There are also rumors that the Silver Hand has been behind a number of assassination attempts.

The Slayers Guild:
Approximate size: 500
Founded: 230 AI
Headquarters: Voltau
Description: one of the oldest and largest mercenary organizations in the empire. It operates differently than many other mercenary groups, as it is largely funded by Casadia and directed to defend settlements across the empire from monster attacks. The Guild also trains locals to defend themselves from such attacks; a strategy that was especially popular during the Endermen Crisis when the numbers of the Guild were stretched thin. While often receiving marching orders from their Casadian benefactors, members of the Guild can still be contracted by any who desire their assistance.

Iron Guard:
Approximate size: 100
Founded: 465 AI
Headquarters: Petra Nova (formerly Concordia)
Description: composed entirely of Orcs, the Iron Guard has a fearsome reputation. They are renowned as savagely effective fighters, often training among Casadians and Slayers before joining the company. The Iron Guard has a long term contract with the GRHH to serve as an integral part of its mercenary army.

Crimson Knights:
Approximate size: 150
Founded: 418 AI
Headquarters: Imperial City
Description: consisting entirely of mounted soldiers, the Crimson Knights get their name from the tinted metal of their armor. The Crimson Knights were created out of the need to defend the Imperial City during its early years. Most of the Crimson Knights maintain a long term contract with the government of the Imperial City, but a third of its number are available to be contracted by other interested parties. The Crimson Knights have a positive reputation due to their longstanding relationship with the government of the Imperial City and their lack of involvement in activities that often soil the reputation of mercenaries.

It is unknown if any Talvilainen have engaged in mercenary work but likely that a few have given their temperament and warrior backgrounds.

Blackgloves:
Approximate size: 200
Founded: 220 AI
Headquarters: Anthi Laguna (Previously Tidewater)
Description: Noting that the Gathered lacked any formal army, the First Chairman founded this company, which is exclusively contracted by the GRHH Co. to protect its assets. It performs a variety of roles from policing settlements, acting as the Chairman's personal enforcers, and defending goods from raiders and pirates. Its members are well trained and often cherry-picked from the best mercenaries in the GRHH. Their name comes from the black leather gloves which are a standard part of their uniform.

Black-skull Company:
Approximate size: 150
Founded: 471 AI
Headquarters: The Red Wastes
Description: Formed during the large period of unrest in New Isilioth with the Royal family being abdicated and missing, the Black-skull Company are ruthless yet efficient mercenaries. Their reputation precedes them so much, that only few can now afford their services. The process for joining the Company involves testing in swordsmanship, archery, strength and endurance, survival skills, and stealth ability. Many fail though, and either are maimed or killed. The final initiation for a member is to venture into the nearest Nether Fortress with only an iron sword and no armour, and return with a Wither Skull. The skull is made into their standard helmet, reinforced with metals for strength, making for a terrifying foe on the battlefield. Some of their most recent exploits include taking the bandit fortress of Greymont without a single death on their side, and the annihilation of the rebel town Hanvale.

Östlaed has no mercenary groups, however, I love reading about everyone else's groups! Keep up the great work everyone!
