Triumphant Horsemen of the Dane
The Triumphant Horsemen of the Dane is the protective organization of armed horsemen who ride the Kings Road, the major North/South road in the kingdom. Well equipped and well backed, this organization is mainly made of the young sons of wealthy families and lead by experienced military men of the King’s army, close to retirement and no longer ready for battle on the field.
They ride the North/South road exclusively, from it’s Northern-most point at Farwall to the port city of New Grond, they insure travellers are safe on the road and the road taxes and bridge levies are enforced.
Treated with respect by the merchants who frequent the route and disdain by those who do not use it (“those spoiled brats won’t protect nothin that ain’t within a yard of that road”) The Triumphant Horsemen of the Dane base themselves at The Cross, kitty corner to the headquarters to their East/West counterpart, the Roadmen.
