The Decay of Elmbridge
The King's Army
The stationed garrison of the King’s Army is the direct extension of the King’s power in the city of Elmbridge. These are the only men in the city who are funded externally and not contingent on the economy of Elmbrdige herself. They are fiercely loyal to the King and their military power is only rivaled by the city guard. They defend the King’s interests in the city and keep a close watch over the city government – constantly working to weed out corruption and any disloyal to the crown. However, they cannot take much direct action for fear of upsetting the uneasy alliance between the city and national governments.
The military is also sometimes used to support the city guard. Whenever the guard has a confrontation with The Family of Blood they can always lean on the might of the military to crush any attempt the crime syndicate makes at direct resistance to the law.
