The Roadmen are an organization of armed riders who patrol the main East/West road that crosses the nation. Unlike their counterparts who ride the North/South route, they are poorly funded and ill organized, but to a man they are horse masters and skilled riders. Capable with horse, bow and the sword they monitor the goings ons in the East and the West, from Half Canter to the Lonely Downs, often being the lone representative of the King’s Law for hundreds of miles.
Like the Triumphant Horsemen of the Dane, they base themselves at The Cross, but rarely spend time there, using it more as a message depot. All men of the Roadmen are drawn from the communities they ride through, and thus their rides tend to start and finish at home.
