Aglarond...Adventures in the Unapproachable East
Aglarond’s army was formed by Brindor Olósynne early in the nation’s history. The army was small and skilled as of 1368 DR, famed for its “Foresters” — elite units of rangers loyal to the crown — operating in the Yuirwood. The rest of the army comprised archers, pikemen, and a few cavalry. These are garrisoned at the fortress Emmech (later renamed Undumor) and the citadel Glarondar. Glarondar also featured a small number of griffon-riders used for scouting. During this period, the militia numbered around six thousand.
Aglarond also has a strong tradition of local militias. When the size of the army is insufficient to deal with a threat, everyday people in Aglarond will come to arms, using spears and pikes. The six thousand trained troops could easily be joined by four times that number of citizens.
Aglarond does not formally have a navy. The Foresters use boats called coastboats for transportation and raids, especially against invading forces.
