Bestiary Entry

Note: All "Imperial" soldiers share one bestiary entry.

Genus: Archadian Empire
Class: Imperial


Page 1: Imperial Soldier

"Being the rank and file of the Archadian Imperial Army. The greater part of the Imperial army is comprised of swordsmen. In addition are hoplites in heavy armor for charging enemy fortifications, mages for ranged support, and others still for various more specialized roles."

Page 2: Mastiff

"Dogs specially trained for battle. Their ability to follow commands and unswerving loyalty make them a vital part of the Imperial war machine. Training takes place at the hands of skilled "beast tamers", with a mastiff usually requiring two to three years before it is ready to see combat."


Like most Imperial enemies, Mastiffs are not overly difficult to kill. They are only particularly noteworthy, however, in that they do not count as Imperials for terms of battle chains, so if the player is fighting Imperials, killing a Mastiff will break their battle chain.
