Faction: Warlords of Martian Fields The Seven Warlords of the Martian Fields were all proud warriors and leaders of men. They did not watch the boiling grub with the complaining village people, they did not pray and sacrifice goose all day, they did not sit and ponder about algebra and their existence all day. However, every single day they trained, long marches, long dashes of running, they sharpened their arms, donned their pelts around their limbs for protection and they painted warpaint in their angered faces. They had sworn an oath of fealty to the Philosopher King of the Triad Legion, their despot and their law was their oath to the Triad King and a short and untimely death for his opponents. They worked as hunters and warriors, expecting the tribal council to provide them with corn, fruit and berries, the Church of Giruvegan with blessings and the PHilosophers Legion with a deeper purpose. The way of living was simple, every man and family for himself, and the pact with the spirits and the gods was the only one worth mentioning. Their goal was now to help the Legion carve out a solid state within the first two millenniums ahead.. The warlords embraced the coming of a new era, with dynasties, slaves to carry their siege equipment and build roads and bridges, religion to put iron into a mans soul and a bright new era of hardened and free men to come. However, was it one thing the Warlords loathed, was to be divided into castes, as they much preferred the present clannish ways, and to keep their proud and militant clan as one.
