From the stalwart Octavian Centurian to the rough and tumble Frontier Roughrider, their is always a place for those with a strong back and even stronger sword arm. On the frontier the many of the most well trained fighters are often serving within the Imperial military on active duty, garrisoning one of the many barracks and keeps that dot the landscape while ensuring that the stability of the region is maintained from threats both inside and out. Many of these fighters often hail from Octavian, Calva, or Anastsaio lands. To these soldiers the lands of the frontier are a foreign place filled with foreign peoples to whom their feelings often run between stalwart defenders of a vassal peoples to indignant distaste.
Many other fighters come from the ranks of the frontiersmen or nomadic tribes, here these rough and tumble martial artists serve as the strong arms of their respective towns and tribes where they work to defend their home and peoples from the various dangers that roam the land, awaiting the time when a lonely farm village or wandering tribe finds itself weak and ripe to be struck down.
