An Akronian Battlegroup is an association of fighters that all share a single goal or purpose. Through greater Dagorhir, these groups are commonly called “Units.” There is no requirement that a fighter join a Battlegroup. The Wallguard is not a Battlegroup—instead it is the ranking for all the fighters in Akron—so membership in the Wallguard does not restrict participation in any Battlegroup. The Kingdom hosts three officially sanctioned battlegroups and two more units are applying to become official battlegroups. Feel free to learn about both the official and applicant battlegroups. In Akron, we try to make sure there is something for everyone.
Official Kingdom Battlegroups
The Deepwood Rangers Guild is a Dagorhir unit for elite Dagorhir combat archers. We are specialists in all forms of battle archery, including forest combat, stealth attacks, and ranged assaults on the battlefield. We help teach young Akronian archers the basics of the bow, but we require that our foreign recruits show that they are already bow specialists.
The unit is based on being a heavy infantry/ shock troop unit. The first into the fight, the first to charge, the first to start the killing. This unit is not meant to be a shield wall, nor to stand back and try to be the last standing; rather it’s meant to be heavily equipped/ armored fighters that are the apex of offense.
The Last Alliance is a mercenary guild that is made up from various mercenary clans from different backgrounds and cultures that were forced to band together during a time of war. The guild focuses on honor and self-betterment.
