Echoes of Glory
A strong unit with a proud history, the 23rd notably fought beside General Arnisant in the Shining Crusade. Though they were slaughtered almost to a man, the 23rd Legion bought enough time for the general and his knights to imprison the Whispering Tyrant within Gallowspire.
After the legion was reformed, many of its companies were permanently stationed in small communities around the Ridonport prefecture to serve as guard forces for smaller towns which had sacrificed so many of their fighting age men to the crusade. Over the decades these postings become permanent, and even today, the captains of guard forces all over the Saw Coast are technically officers of the 23rd Legion (example: Kara Clark of Carver’s Cove), though it is unlikely they would be asked to march with the legion into war.
House Disaren paid a king’s ransom in political favors to secure the bulk of the legion’s fighting men to defend the city in their war against Evondemor and the Knights of Blackthorn, but even the mighty 23rd couldn’t halt the advance of Gorum’s Own.
