Light troops are all level 3 warriors, they share their basic characteristics but are differentiated by the peacetime role they perform. Light Foot are the main utility unit and come automatically with all buildings that have Def points. They might be used to - guard buildings, carry out countryside patrols, police a city, staff watchtowers, guard gates, patrol city walls, etc. Light Cavalry are messengers and fast scouts.
Light Troops are built using the Standard Troop Template.
State troops are the troop type that you would expect to find patrolling in towns, city and countryside, on behalf of the state and form the basis of their standing army. There is no requirement for independent cities or landowners to use these models, however, unless you specify it somewhere, these are the default. Private estates (such as a Noble's holdings) are often patrolled by Private guards, rather than State Troops.
Standard troop types that anyone can train or employ, but are not employed by the state. Most are employed by Nobles or other wealthy members of society. The might be house guards, caravan guards, mercenaries - or serve in other roles.
If you want to employ specialist, or personalized, troop types they can be added into this section. Please Note that these troop types can only be trained or employed by PCs who meet the appropriate criteria.
This category of troops can only be trained, or employed, by Aldori.
