Landsknecht

Landsknechte first appeared in the Wolf Duchy, and their name actually means “servants of the land” in the old Wolf dialect. Protected by heavy armour and armed with double-bladed swords, Landsknechte are without a doubt the greatest warriors of the Wolf Duchy – and quite possibly of the Holy Empire itself.

Kaspar's Comment

“We all have the blood of the Dragons in our veins. I believe some are born with a bit more of it. Such men or women are forces of nature, meant for extraordinary things. Some will become great Wizards… others, the most formidable of warriors.”


Sweep

The uncanny strength of the Landsknechte allows them to trample through enemy lines with large swipes of their gigantic sword, damaging multiple targets at the same time. Their troops can literally cut through enemy lines.

Swordmaster

Only the biggest, toughest, most resilient of Landsknechte can become Swordmasters. Trained in the most inhospitable woods and frozen hills of the Wolf Duchy, the fearless Swordmasters are the living swords of Elrath, and the embodiment of the Dragon of Light’s might and ire.

Kaspar's Comment

“I have seen a Swordmaster behead a Bloodrage-empowered Cyclops with one single blow of his sword. If these phenomenal warriors were not so rare, Wizards wouldn’t have needed to create Orcs in the first place.”

Indomitable

The Swordmasters have reached a level of commitment to battle that is unrivalled. They simply fear nothing and never lose hope, even outnumbered hundreds to one.
