Hell of a Summer
Red Gauntlet Regiment
A famed mercenary company, the Red Gauntlet Regiment has existed for centuries, its fortunes rising and falling with the governments and churches it supports. Minstrels across Khorvaire sing folk tales praising the Red Gauntlet and the code of honor it regards as essential to the soldier’s life. Once the Red Gauntlet is hired, it stays hired, and no pay-off by the enemy is great enough to sully its given word. In the latter years of the Last War, the Red Gauntlet served the Brelish crown with distinction along the Breland-Cyre border. On the Day of Mourning, the Red Gauntlet is said to have “formally requested” to be ordered to help the evacuation of Cyran troops and refugees fleeing the dead-grey mists, and thus earned the personal respect of not only King Boranel, but the Cyran refugees lead by Prince Oragev in New Cyre.
Throneport has contracted Red Gauntlet mercenaries to deal with problems outside their capabilities in the past. High profile thefts against city property or important people within the city may also get the benefit of contracted Red Gauntlet agents.
