Sworn to the House of Wrynn, the stoic Royal Infantry serve as the first line of defense for the Kingdom of Stormwind. After suffering complete decimation during the First War, the Royal Army of Stormwind has rebounded and now stands as Azeroth's premier fighting force. Footmen, archers, handgunners and armsmen make up the bulk of the regiment's melee and missile troops. Held to strict standards of discipline and issued high quality equipment, the Stormwind Royal Infantry will win the day with loyalty, steel, and gunpowder.
The Westridge Ducal Guard is the division of elite soldiers of the regiment who have earned their place among its vanguard. First to fight and last to leave, its veteran infantrymen are outfitted with the best arms and armor that the Duchy of Westridge has to offer. Its members are given the distinctive honor and duty of defending the Lord-Marshal and his family both in war and peace.
The Brotherhood of the Horse is the official knighted order of the Kingdom of Stormwind and is staunchly loyal to the royal family. Not all Knights of the Brotherhood are Cavaliers, with some choosing roles as field officers or even more specialized roles. Nonetheless, all Knights of the Brotherhood are highly qualified leaders and cavalrymen.
The scouts and foresters of the Stormwind Reconnaissance Corps work tirelessly to provide their superiors with a broader view of tactical information, whether by mapping routes through difficult terrain, scouting out enemy positions, or performing covert operations against enemy targets. In the decades that have passed since their kingdom was decimated during the Orcish Wars, the Stormwind Army has determined that its failure to detect the full extent of their enemy cost them the war. The Stormwind Reconnaissance Corps ensures that mistake will never be made again.
The Rangers of Westridge are known throughout the realm for their skills in archery, reconnaissance, and tracking. Serving as the eyes and ears of their Duke and his officers, the Rangers have a frightening ability to uncover what would be hidden or secret. Rangers are rumored to simply disappear and reappear at will as masters of stealth. Whatever the truth may be, one thing is certain - the Rangers of Westridge are always watching.
The Mage Circle of Sarceline is the primary authority in matters arcane within the Duchy of Westridge. It supplies the duchy and its men-at-arms with powerful enchantments and wards while some of its mages take up magical arms on the field of battle as spellswords and battle magi. Doubling as a center for magical research, the circle has published countless papers on the nature of the arcane that have benefited mages across all of Azeroth. The circle is ultimately administered by the elder magi of the Wizard’s Sanctum in Stormwind City.
The Cabal of the Burning Sword is a secretive order of mages amongst the Sarceline mage circle that have devoted themselves fully to mastering the art of arcane warfare. Donning arms and armor forged with ancient reagents and imbued with fortifying enchantments, cabalists are terrors of the battlefield. While some claim that their power is derived from magics forbidden by the elder magi of the capital, none may doubt the fear that cabalists strike in their enemies.
Subject to the greater Diocese of Stormwind, the Diocese of Westridge is the Church of the Holy Light’s arm in the duchy of the same name. Its priory has a storied history in the realm of Stormwind and has provided healers and battle-clerics to the royal army for generations. Those interested in becoming harbingers of their faith may take on trials to become fully ordained priests of the clergy. Due to the significant influence and popularity of the Duke, the Diocese of Westridge enjoys relative autonomy from the politics of the kingdom's capital.
So named for Saint Issac Degaullier, the Holy Order of Saint Isaac is a religious knightly order of paladins that strive to exemplify the values of the church while bringing swift retribution to the wicked and relief to the infirm. Aspirants of the order must take on several trials that test their resolve and adherence to the order’s values before they are recognized as Paladin Knights. Despite claiming homage to the Order of the Silver Hand, the Order of Saint Isaac is sworn to serve the Diocese of Westridge.
