Military organization Professional army. (The Legions have been devided up between the areas.)
Military values About the size of the military forces available to the factions. The old imperial legions, the professional core of the army split roughly 50/50 between the Duke and General Zenos. However, just before the invasion of the Sinari, the Cedonians started conscription. As a result, the Duke and the General have about 40,000-50,000 men each, or a Size of Fair(0). The effect of losses and conscription has reduced their Force to a level of Great(+2). As for the republican-leaning cities, their armed forces consist of volunteer militia, with a core of professionals, mostly legion deserters or soldiers who were discharged for medical reasons; approximately 10,000-15,000 men divided among the several cities. Their combined Size is Mediocre(-1), with a Force of Good(+1).
