Form and Structure of the Northlands Army as of 29 NC

In the New Calendar year 29, the Northlands army is encamped at Everwatch and Hillcrest.  The army is composed of roughly five thousand volunteers formed into five battalions and led by Mengst’s elite Black Rose Society.  At any given time, one battalion is stationed at Everwatch and are relieved on a weekly basis from the troops at Hillcrest.  The Black Rose Society ranks its members as an infantry company, but they are all essentially treated as general officers by the army.

The following outlines the key players and organizational structure:

Patron Of The Army:  Duke Stephen Tyr of Westergarde

General Of The Army:  Captain-General Kironius Mengst

The Black Rose Society

The Society is organized as a small special operations company.  Each member of the command staff, in addition to overseeing their area of the Society, also bears responsibilities for the Northlands army as a whole.  The Company Quartermaster, for example, oversees the four supply companies in the army’s supply and engineering battalion.  Besides the command staff, the Society is made up of four units, three operations units who take on various special tasks required by command, and the Warders, an ultra-elite group of knights who take on extraordinarily dangerous operations on behalf of Mengst himself.
