Other noted ranks are as follows: Four Captians; Four Lieutenants; Six Sergeant’s and Twelve corporals.





*********Border City*********



Located at the southern most point between the Mistmoon Mountains and the Marble Mountains; Border city is constructed with in the border wall that spans nearest four hundred and fifty miles with sub cities every fifty miles and sub check points every twenty-five miles; spanning from mountain edge to mountain edge. Border City is the only city in the continent that could be considered neutral. As it has no one particular kingdom backing it, it makes it the most unique place on the continent.

There is only one person wholly in charge; that person is known as the Commandant. The commandant is chosen by a selection of highest ranking officers serving at the border. He is chosen by a two to three vote and stays in office for five years at a time. This ensures there is no usurping or ability to gain extra influence other than what the position entitles.

Once the commandant retires from his post after five years he can stay on in the border as a non sentry in a pure consultant status or like most before him retire to either side of the border as he or she chooses with a small land grant as a thank you from the King or lord of that realm.
