IntroductionEdit

Legion VI of Cyrodiil forms ranks for battle


HistoryEdit

For millennia, the Empire of Cyrodiil has ruled over all Tamriel since the First Era. The Dragon-Throne of the Emperor has long been the most sacred and powerful seat in all of Tamriel. The Emperors have long commanded endless realms and armies by their decrees, and by the edicts of the Elder Council. In the height of its power, not an inch of land in all Tamriel was not at least nominally part of the Empire.

But the beginnings of the Empire were humble. For in the dark days of the First Era, the High Elves of the Heartland, the Ayleids, made slaves of the humans who dwelt in their lands, and treated them with unimaginable cruelty. It was after centuries of oppression that the human slaves who inhabited the Nibenland rose up and overthrew their Elven masters. Saint Alessia, the queen of the rebel armies, made a pact with the gods, that she and all her descendants would be Dragon-Born in exchange for divine protection. The gods gave her the Amulet of Kings, a gem of great power, the sigil of the Eight Divines willing to come to the aid of Man. The power of the Amulet granted all who possessed the mark of the Dragon-Born the power to seal off the realms of the damned from the mortal world, that as long as one who wore the Amulet lived, the hosts of Oblivion would be held at bay.

The Empire has struggled and lived on, in many forms, rises and falls. The Empire of Alessia conquered many foes after the Ayleids, uniting much of Tamriel. It was this First Empire that established monotheism, the faith of Shezarr, known elsewhere as Shor and Lorkhan, the God of Nirn, the vigilant protector of the human race. The Empire eventually would return to primarily worshiping the Eight, but many, especially the Men of the North, would never falter in their loyalty to mighty Shor.

The First Empire reigned for many centuries, but came to an end after its age of glory. Tamriel shattered into an era of strife and destruction. The Amulet of Kings was lost. It was in these days that great king of the North pursued the ghost of Alessia, and upon his final discovery of her, received her blessing. Through many strange portents, a child, Reman Cyrodiil, was born of this blessing, and upon his brow wore the Amulet of Kings. Reman was Dragonborn, and grew to be a conqueror of an even greater legacy than even Alessia; for even the God-Kings of the East, the indomitable Tribunal, swore their fealty to his throne.

It was in the age of Reman's Empire that the armies of the Akavir, the mysterious Orient, landed upon Tamriel, and made war upon his legions. For years and years the armies did battle; at last peace was made, and many of the warriors of Akavir settled in the lands of the west. In the many interregna of the latter half of the Second Empire, many a descendant of the Akaviri served as regent over the Empire, holding the title of Potentate of Tamriel, but not carrying the Dragon Blood.

And so it came to pass that the Second Empire dwindled away. But in the final days of the Second Era, out of the great northern woods of Falkreath came a mighty warrior. Within his blood flowed the power of the Dragons, and within his soul flowed a great destiny. Like the heroes of myth, he bore the mark of Shor himself, and under his banner all Tamriel, man and elf, orc and beastman, were united. He was the Emperor Tiber Septim in life, and in death was rewarded with godhood. The Eight Divines took him into their number as Talos, God of Statecraft and War. The Eight became the Nine.

The Third Era was a golden age for the Empire. Never before were the peoples of Tamriel so affluent, and never before was the Empire's influence so great. But from this peace there came decadence and unrest. In the later years of the Third Empire the Battlemage Jagar Tharn, chief advisor to Emperor Uriel VII, imprisoned his liege in a pocket realm by sorcery, and impersonated him for ten years. In mockery of Talos, the accursed lich Mannimarco became a god, and his army of the damned attempted to conquer the world. Hannibal Traven, Archmage of Cyrodiil, sacrificed his life to defeat Mannimarco's avatar, but the long-standing Guild of Mages was torn apart. And in the final years of the era, Uriel and his three legitimate sons were murdered by Daedra cultists. The leader of this cult, the Dragonborn Altmer Mankar Camoran, stole the Amulet of Kings, and severed its power to allow the armies of Oblivion to ravage the world. All Tamriel burned in hell-fire and darkness descended. It was only then that the last surviving Septim, the priest Martin of Kvatch, reclaimed the Amulet and fulfilled Alessia's pact with the gods: from the Amulet sprang forth Akatosh himself, who battled with the Daedric Prince of Destruction upon the soil of Mundus. Martin ascended to be with his forefather Talos through this ritual, and the Blood of the Dragons was no more.

The Mede family succeeded the Septims, beginning the Fourth Empire. But the Empire could not be restored to its former glory. The Hellspawn of the Deadlands had destroyed much of what was once Tamriel. The half-daedric Ayleid king and nemesis of Alessia, Umaril, returned to Mundus leading a Daedric army of his own, desecrating the Chapels of the Nine. The most decorated veteran of the Oblivion Crisis, the Hero of Kvatch, disappeared into the realm of the Mad God Sheogorath and was never seen again. The God-Kings of Morrowind were made mortal by the Nerevarine, and vanished. Without their guidance, the cities of the Dark Elves were destroyed by civil war and natural disaster, and the Red Mountain erupted. Anarchy reigned over the Eastern Provinces as hordes of lizard-men came forth from Argonia and butchered the armies of both the Empire and the Dunmer Great Houses.

In the south of Tamriel, the Elves of Summurset Isle seceded from the Empire. The government of the Thalmor, cruel-hearted sorcerers, were welcomed by the Bosmer and Khajiit into the Southern Provinces; having wrenched their lands from the hands of the Empire, the Thalmor turned against them, enslaving and murdering countless innocents. The Thalmor vowed to recreate the Elven empires of old, and destroy the human race where the Ayleids had failed.

So it was that the Mede Dynasty went to war with the Thalmor. After a long and devastating war, the Thalmor took the Imperial City, and savagely butchered its inhabitants. Emperor Titus II rallied his armies for a final heroic charge, and slaughtered the elves to a man. The cruel general of the Thalmor was publicly shamed at the center of the city for an entire month, and then put to death for his crimes. But the Empire was too weak to fight on. The Elves had all but won. And so the surrendered to them, accepting the infamous White-Gold Concordat.

Among the terms of the Concordat were the granting of the extraterritorial jurisdiction to Thalmor officials in Imperial territory, and the disbanding of the ancient protectors of the Dragon-Born Emperors, the Blades. Half of the Province of Hammerfell granted to the Thalmor; the Redguards responded to this insult by seceding from the Empire and driving out the Elves. But worst of all the agreements was the banning of the Cult of Tiber Septim; to worship Talos as a god became a capital crime throughout the lands of the Empire. The Divines were declared to be Eight in number again. The Elves brutally kidnapped and tortured all still loyal to the great hero of Mankind. As a final symbol of the Empire's impending fall, the Jarl of the East March, the northern shores upon which Man first came to Tamriel, declared war upon Cyrodiil. With the power of the Voice, once wielded by Talos himself, he slew the High King of Skyrim, and proclaimed that Man's northern homeland would be free from Elven tyranny once more. It was the darkest hour. Only if a final hero with newfound Dragon Blood were to arise could the Empire be reunited.


The Imperial ProvinceEdit

Despite initial appearances, The Imperial province can be distinguished from Australia by the fact that liquid water is present, and only some of the things there are trying to kill you.

The Imperial Province covers a vast portion of Tamriel, stretching its western coast over a thousand miles to Morrowind, and south to the great Niben Bay. North of the bay, upstream of the great Nibenay Valley, lies the Imperial City. Docks bustle with ships bringing goods to and from every part of the Empire. Alabaster apartments and parks filled with towering trees and statues stand high above the endless winding streets. Dignitaries from all the known world congregate in this city, all swearing loyalty to the great Emperor of Tamriel. Ladies and gentlemen of fine breeding live their entire lives within the city's shining walls, while strange cults and goblin outlaws inhabit its sewers. For this city the Emperor's seat, and the ancient White Gold Tower, pride of the conquered Ayleid elves, is his palace. The tower can be seen for hundreds of miles, a landmark for travelers, a monument as great and mysterious as it is ancient.

The Nibenay Valley is a cosmopolitan center of trade and agriculture. The climate is rainy yet temperate; its excellent condition for crops is a gift from the Voice of Talos himself, a reward to his armies and all their descendants for their years service. West of the Heartland are the highlands of Colovia. The people of Colovia are hardier than the Nibenese, and embrace a rural lifestyle. It is among the sons of these humble farmers that many of the great generals of the Legion are found.

The people of Cyrodiil follow the most orthodox form of the worship of the Divines. The Divines consist a mix of Elven and Human deities, the most righteous and holy of the gods, the ones to whom Alessia prayed for help. For the Divines are prayed to by mortals, and deliver them protection. It is the Empire upon whom they smile, and grant their blessings. The Divines are as follows:

Ninedivines.jpg

Akatosh, God of Time: Akatosh is the mightiest of all the Divines. The father of the Dragons, Akatosh metaphysically embodies time itself. His guardianship of the world of mortals is the greatest powers made manifest through the Amulet of Kings. But as the spirit of time itself, he can be manipulated through the making or breaking of prophecy, and his alliance with the human race may be merely tentative.

Arkay, God of Life and Death: Arkay is among the more powerful of the Nine. He is the holy protector of mortals; his faithful, should they be buried with the proper rites, can never be enslaved after death to the whims of dark sorcery. It is Arkay's will that the righteous die in peace, and enter the Aether for eternal rest.

Dibella, Goddess of Beauty: Dibella embodies the arts and the sensual. She is the patron goddess of all that is lovely, romantic, or pleasing to mortals. Many great sonnets and hymns are made in her name; the erotic is also within her sphere.

Julianos, God of Law: Julianos is a god of wisdom and logic, and a judge of mortals. The keepers of the Elder Scrolls hold a special devotion to him.

Kynareth, Goddess of Air: Kynareth watches over the elements of the world. The sky is her domain, and she blesses Nirn with her living breath.

Mara, Goddess of Love: Mara is the consort of Akatosh. She grants love and kindness to mortals, and teaches them to love one another as she does. Her blessing is given to those who wish to marry; in some provinces, her icon is worn around the necks of those proposing marriage.

Stendarr, God of Might and Mercy: Stendarr teaches the kings of mortals to rule those beneath them with a firm, yet merciful, hand. He watches over the Imperial Legion and over those who abide by the laws of their land, blessing all who would be just and righteous at once.

Zenithar, God of Work: Zenithar is a god to whom all who toil for a living are devoted. His blessings are upon all those who would seek prosperity through honest work.

Talos, God of War: When Tiber Septim died he ascended to godhood. He became the entity known as Talos, a Divine of incredible power, dedicated to the protection of Man and this smiting of his foes.

The Empire stretched across all Tamriel at its height. Depending on the Emperor, the Empire was often a unifying force, promoting trade and prosperity between provinces. At other times, it was known to be corrupt and tyrannical. The provinces of the Empire each swear nominal loyalty to the Emperor; nevertheless, the various provincial nobility are known to war amongst each other, or against the Empire itself. Such actions often relegate the position of Empire to becoming one nations among many; maintaining true authority is a constant struggle for Imperial officials outside of Cyrodiil. It is through the power of the Legions that strong Emperors maintain their will among the squabbling peoples of Tamriel.


The Imperial LegionEdit

Legionaires.jpg

The Imperial Legion is one of the the largest and most powerful armies of all Tamriel. Its Legionnaires are recruited from Imperials looking for adventure, from hardy Nordic stock, and even from the Orcish tribes who wander the northern hills. Auxiliary forces are raised in every province. The Legion's training and discipline are legendary and its commanders are among the finest tacticians on the continent.

The Legion's primary function is the defense of the Empire in times of war or insurrection. Should pillaging tribes of goblins or hordes of Daedra threaten any part of Tamriel, the armies of Cyrodiil are prepared. In times of peace, the Legion are tasked with building roads and maintaining forts. Watchmen and militia, including the famous Imperial Dragoons, are called upon to help enforce the law in times of peace, and to fight for the Legion in times of war.

This book contains the rules for fielding the Imperial Legion in games of Scrollhammer.


General RulesEdit

The Imperial Legion is a well-trained and veteran force, their resolve nearly unbreakable. As such many of their units have the following rules-


Legionnaire Drilling:

Almost all Imperial Soldiers are heavily trained and gruelingly drilled. Even in the most desperate situations the troops are able to keep their cool and continue striving for victory. Units with this special rule may always rally normally, regardless of their number of losses.

Imperial Legion Musicians with this special rule, while still alive, allow their units to shoot or march the turn they reform in the movement phase.


Emperor of Tamriel:

For every 200 points that an Emperor costs, they may take a 0-5 retinue of Blades. The Emperor also holds the absolute loyalty and faith of his peers- as such any unit that they join become fearless, as do all units within 24".

Only one unit with the 'Emperor of Tamriel' special rule may be taken.


Army ListEdit

Imperial LegionEdit

TESV Banner Legion.png

An Imperial Legion army uses the following list:

Heroes: Imperial Legion Captain, Decanus Magus

Core: Legionnaires, Milites, Imperial Militia, Crossbowmen, Dragoons.

Elite: Battle Magi, Nobles, Guild Forces, Imperial Knights, Orc Auxiliaries.

Support: 0-1 Spellcasters, Bosmer Auxiliary, Light Cavalry, Onager, Ballistae

Emperor's Strategy: An army whose primary force is the Imperial Legion, in which the majority of the models are Imperials, wins ties on the roll to go first, chooses the scenario should it roll a 6 to pick table edge, and steals the initiative on 5+.


HeroesEdit

CaptainEdit

Few men and women are ever given the honor to lead the Imperial Legion into battle. Those that do are often members of the royal bloodline, rich and powerful noble folk, and less commonly some uplifted common citizen who has shown their merit over decades of battle. Regardless, the commanders and captains embody all that the Legion holds dear- discipline, power, nobleness. Naturally they have all gone through Legionnaire training earlier in their life then also been schooled for lengthy periods of time in the use of tactics and strategy. That is not to say they are pencil pushers- Imperial leaders are each an immensely powerful warrior or mage.

Decanus MagusEdit

While sorcerers and wizards are normally forced into battle-support roles, the Imperial Legion is all too willing to advance the rank of a proficient and ambitious warmage. The rank of Decanus, or watcher over ten squads, is often giving to particularly established and intelligent mages from their ranks. From this position the clever individual is able to lead a decent sized force into war for the glory of the Imperial Legion.

CoreEdit

LegionnairesEdit

A Legionnaire of Legion IV, stationed in Skyrim

Imperial Legionnaires make up the bulk of the Imperial Legion. Compared to many other armies the average Legionnaire is heavily armed, rugged, and rigidly disciplined. Recruiting standards are incredibly high- only candidates at the utmost peak of physical fitness are even considered. What trustworthiness and virtue that does not already exist in the recruits are beaten into them over lengthy and tortuous drills. The combination of rigid discipline, effective organization, and cost-effective arming make the Legionnaires especially potent. Every member is clad in thick and well fitting skirted plate armor. Laden up with sword, shield, and spear. In formation, shields locked together, the mainstay warriors of the Empire are a fearsome sight to behold.

8 pts per model. Core. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Imperial. 10-40 models per unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv
Legionnaire 4 3 3 3 1 3 1 8 1 4+
Centurion 4 3 3 3 1 3 2 9 1 4+

Special Rules: Legionnaire Drilling.

Centurions are Characters.

Foreign Regiments: The race of the unit may be changed to Nord, costing +1 pts per model. It may be a mix of Imperial and Nord. A unit purchased containing at least 75% Nords has the Stubborn special rule.

Wargear: Hand Weapon, Shield, Javelins, Plate Armor.

The entire unit may:

  • Upgrade one model to Centurion(+1 A, +1 LD) for +8 pts

  • Upgrade all weapons to silver +1 pts per model

The Centurion may replace his or her armor with Ebony Armor for +6 pts.

The Centurion may take up to 10 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


MilitesEdit

After years of service within the legion and demonstrating their worth a Legionnaire might be promoted to the rank of Milite. These units normally have one particular role that they perform during the battle, normally supportive in nature. Different Milite units focus on entirely different subjects- some perform as woodsmen, others field surgeons. Especially trained Militae are even able to act as combat engineers, assisting the attack of fortifications and backing up siege weapon crews as needed. That the Imperial Army has such an abundance of elite trained soldiers only further bespeaks its strength.

12 pts per model. Core. Skirmish, Infantry, Imperial. 10-20 models per unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv
Militae 4 4 3 3 1 3 1 9 1 -

Foreign Regiment: The race of the unit may be changed to Nord, costing +1 pt per model. It may be a mix of Imperial and Nord. A unit purchased containing at least 75% Nords has the Stubborn special rule.

Specialists: Each unit is composed of one of three troop types, representing the different roles that might be required of them on the battle. Depending on the role chosen the Militae unit is differently armed, and gains special rules-

  • Woodsmen: Leather armor (6+ save), hand weapon, bows, javelins. Have the Move Through Cover and Fleet of Foot special rules.
  • Field Surgeons: Plate armor (5+ save), hand weapons. Mg+3, each Militae has the following spells: Mara’s Embrace, Cure Poison.

Siege-Weapon Training: (Combat Engineers) If the unit did not move during your movement phase, at the end of that phase you may have them take a Leadership check.

The Centurion may replace his or her armor with Glass Armor for +4 pts, or Ebony Armor for +10 points.

The Centurion may take up to 20 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


Imperial MilitiaEdit

Most Imperial Citizens maintain at least small amounts of Militiamen. All of these volunteer forces normally work as guards during peacetime, watching over their hamlets and towns. Occasionally when war marches upon Cyrodil they march right back upon it, joining up with the more elite Imperial Legion. This only further bolsters the number of fighting men and women. While not nearly as trained as the Legionnaires, or well armed by any definition, the sheer numbers and tenacity of these fighters can overwhelm unprepared opponents. Militiamen often are the unsung heroes of war; not fighting for coin or honor but for the defense of what they hold dear.

5 pts per model. Core. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Imperial. 10-40 models per unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

  • Halberds +1 pt per model

The entire unit may replace their Leather Armor with:

  • Chainmail (5+) for +1 pt per model


CrossbowmenEdit

A Crossbowman of Legion XXV, stationed in Hammerfell

The Imperial Legion makes great use of technology and is generally much more accepting of it then comparable armies. In particular the force favors the ranged weapon of the Crossbow. While the armor-penetrating weapon is deadly by itself, when armed en masse by trained Legionnaires it becomes entirely overwhelming. Volley after volley of armor-penetrating bolts can be fired from the formation, the men and women within grimly determined and unshakable.

9 pts per model. Core. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Imperial. 10-20 models per unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

  • Replace Plate Armor with Leather Armor (6+ save) for free.

The entire unit may replace Crossbows with:

  • Bows (free)

The Centurion may replace his or her armor with Full Plate Armor for +4 pts.

The Centurion may take up to 10 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


DragoonsEdit

Imperial Dragoons.jpg

Dragoons are heavily armored cavalry organized in companies much like non-mounted infantry. As a whole they are more experienced and battle hardened Legionnaires, those that have some experience with fighting on horseback. While not at war these cavalry perform as internal security, patrolling against smugglers, trouble-doers, and monsters on the roads between cities. Many an adventurer has been assisted by such a patrolling Dragoon. In combat they are a sight to behold- clad in dark, thick armor, only slightly catching rays off the sun. Nearly no infantry in Tamriel can survive the charge of a full unit of Imperial Dragoons.

19 pts per model. Core. Fight in Ranks, Cavalry, Imperial. 5-15 models per unit. May only be joined by Independent Characters who are also riding Horses.

The Centurion may replace his or her armor with Ebony Armor for +6 pts.

The Centurion may take up to 30 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


EliteEdit

Battle MagiEdit

Within the Imperial Legion it is entirely common to find large units of trained Battle Magi, or combat sorcerers. The Legion takes in the best of the best, so it is not uncommon for them to find those with high magical talents. These candidates are then run through the standard Legionnaire training and then some. While the resulting unit is not as potent as other more dedicated units, such as spellswords or sorcerers, Battle Magi are surprisingly resilient and deadly in their own right. Unlike other sorcerers, Imperial Battle Magi are extensively trained in the use of heavy armor.

14 pts per model. Elite. Skirmish, Infantry, Imperial. 10-20 models per unit.

NoblesEdit

It is not infrequent for rich or noble folk to take up arms within the Imperial Legion. Some may seek fame, political power, or perhaps just wish to serve their duty for the great nation of the Empire. The end result is the same- the respective men and women are tested for physical fitness and the Legion determines if they are fit to join their ranks. The nobles that are accepted receive the normal training, but normally are able to arm themselves with their own personal weapons, most frequently Ebony or enchanted. Noble Legionnaires fight much like their more mundane brethren but are much better equip, and thus more potent.

13 pts per model. Elite. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Imperial. 10-20 models per unit.

The Centurion may take up to 25 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


Guild ForcesEdit

While not at all a part of the Legion at times the army might hire along a small cohort of men from the Fighters Guild. This act is quite often looked down upon by other commanders- after all, what reason is there to dilute the Legion with common rabble and brawlers? Unscrupulous (or pragmatic) commanders often ignore such prejudices, treating the guild like any other number of common auxiliary. The Guild fighters also perform decently in combat- charging forward in an often unorganized rabble that none-the-less strikes hard, felling enemies and receiving blows in almost equal measure. They may not fight prettily but they often get the job done.

Elite. Skirmish, Infantry. Fighters may be any of the 10 common races of Tamriel. 5-20 models per unit. The unit must contain at least three types of model, and and no single type of model may make up more than two-thirds of the entire unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

One of the models may take the Helm of Oreyn Bearclaw for the cost listed in the armory.


Imperial KnightsEdit

Imperial Knights are members of the knightly orders of Tamriel. Though they are technically not a part of the Imperial Legion, and enjoy independence from it, the group is often called into battle on the Legion's behalf. Normally the blessed knights are only called when the need is dire- such as during the Oblivion Crisis, or one of many revolts. It goes without saying that Imperial Knights are a cut above nearly all cavalry. Each knight maintains their own personal arms and armor, most of which is nearly silver in color. Long capes and billowing decorations flutter off the men and their mounts, more often then not embroidered detailing past deeds and exploits. To their allies the sight of the Imperial Knights are rallying and joyful, to their enemies a sight to despair.

28 pts per model. Elite. Fight in Ranks, Cavalry, Imperial. 5-12 models per unit. May only be joined by Independent Characters who are also riding Horses.

Lords are Characters.

Unbreakable: Imperial Knights are Fearless as long as they are locked in combat.

Kingly Presence: Allied units within 12" may substitute their Leadership with the Knight's.

Knightly Order: Rather then fight for glory and fame, a unit of Imperial Knights may crusade in the name of the Nine Divines(almost always one in particular). This is an upgrade for the entire unit that costs +30 points and may only be taken once. Select which of the Nines the unit fights for-

  • Akatosh: Order of the Hour. Knights have +1 Ld, to a maximum of 10
  • Arkay: Order of the Circle. Knights strike at +1S against Undead and ignore enemy's Feel No Pain.
  • Dibella: Order of the Lilly. Kingly Presence's range is increased by a further 3"
  • Julianos: Knights Mentor. The unit is unaffected by Illusion spells
  • Kynareth: Kynaran Order. Armor is replaced with Glass (4+), and the unit has Move Through Cover
  • Mara: Maran Hospitalliers. Knights have +2 Mg and Spell:Mara's Embrace

Orc AuxiliariesEdit

Es5s-orc-armor.jpg

The race of Orcs have long held a distinguished place in the Imperial Legion. The pariah children of Malacath, the Orcs have long inhabited the mountains of the north, forming barbarian tribes and hordes, ruled from the fortress-city of Orsinium. When small numbers of Orcs left their homes and wandered the empire, it soon became apparent to the Legion that the beast-like men were exceptionally hardy and skilled. Naturally strong warriors and smiths, they fit best into the role of heavy front-line infantry. To this day, male and female Orc alike are honored members of the legion. Wielding great weapons, their tempers honed like a weapon from the Legionnaire training, the Auxiliaries throw themselves headlong at weak infantry formations with joy. Beneath their stoic demeanor lies an incredible rage, ready to be unleashed at any moment. Truly there is no greater sport than war- and in the Legion they get paid well for it.

15 pts per model. Elite. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Orc. 10-20 models per unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

  • Ebony +4 pts per model(+8 pts for both weapons)

The Champion may take up to 20 pts of appropriate Magic Items from the Armory.

SupportEdit

SpellcastersEdit

More often then not magic dominates the battlefield. Wizards and disciples are able to turn the conflict in their favor through stubborn determination or sheer destructive potential. The Imperial guard quickly sets aside enlisted Legionnaires who show promising magical potential, rushing them through the standard training regiment. By the time they finish the already strong spell casters are infused with a excellent grasp of tactics and unit dynamics. Something arguably lacking in many of the magical sorts.

While less flashy and dangerous then their Destruction casting brethren Imperial Cult priests can be found not too far from combat. During peacetime there is normally a large presence of the Cult within the Imperial forts, tending to the physical and spiritual needs of the Legionnaires. And during especially dire circumstances they might march out with the Legionnaires, out onto the battlefield, to lend their support. There they are quite useful- protecting against magical and mental attack by all manner of monster or beast.

12 pts per model. Support. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Imperial. 10-20 models per unit.

25mm x 25mm base.

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv

Spells (Wizards): Firebolt. Wizards have up to two additional spells of your choice from the Schools of Destruction, Alteration, or Illusion(cast on 13+ or lower). Every model in the unit must take the same spells. One of these two spells may be replaced by the spell Ward.

Spells (Priests): Priests may select two spells from the following list- Arkay's Chastisement, Grace of the Nine, Mara's Embrace. In addition to your choice of these two, the Priests may also take one spell of your choice from the Schools of Restoration or Alteration(cast on 9+ or lower).

The Veteran may take an additional appropriate spell(cast on 13+ or lower), or a spell from the school of Mysticism(cast on 13+ or lower) from the armory for +5 pts.


Bosmer AuxiliaryEdit

What few shortcomings the Imperial Legion has are often patched over with the neat use of Auxiliary troops. Of particular mention are the Bosmer bowmen from Valenwood. Since a young age native Bosmer are trained in the use of the longbow. Their keen eyes, and racial knackness for using the weapons are entirely unmatched. For this reason the Imperial Legion often hire on a group of such men and women, especially when they lack ranged firepower, or are moving into thickly wooded areas. It is in that terrain where the mercenaries perform exceptionally.

10 pts per model. Support. Skirmish, Infantry, Bosmer. 5-20 models per unit.

The Pathfinder may upgrade all his weapons to Glass for +6 pts

The Pathfinder may be given up to 10 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


Light CavalryEdit

Imperial Light Cavalry.jpg

The Imperial Legion has a fondness for horse cavalry, well acquainted with their uses and tactical advantages. Rather then being solely intended for combat (Such as the Dragoons), Light Cavalry fulfill a large number of equally important tasks- reconnaissance, raiding, screening, and most often communications. During battle the cavalry are still able to be a thorn in the enemy commanders side, quickly galloping about the battlefield, striking where lines are weakest. A suitably large wing can soften foes with their ranged weaponry before crushing them beneath a lightning-fast charge.

13 pts per model. Support. Skirmish, Fast Cavalry, Imperial. 5 to 20 models per unit. May only be joined by Independent Characters who are also Fast Cavalry.

25mm x 50mm base.

The Centurion may take up to 15 pts of Magic Items where appropriate from the armory.


OnagerEdit

The onager is an Imperial Legion siege engine, a catapult, that uses torsional force to fling like rocks at the enemy. When fired the arm spins around and slams into the padded bed causing the whole device to flinch and shake. It is from this motion that the onager draws its name. In combat the weapon is used to batter infantry with showers of rock, or fling especially large ones at enemy fortifications to batter them down.

90 pts per artillery. Support. Skirmish, Artillery, Imperial. 1 to 3 artillery per unit.

25mm x 25mm base(crew). 50mm x 100mm base(Onager).

Engineer 3 4 3 3 1 3 1 8 1 5+

Crew: 4 Crewman per artillery

Wargear: Hand Weapon, Plate Armor.

Special Rules:

Catapult: Onagers are made up of crew and the actual artillery piece, with oncoming ranged attacks being split between the two(see rules for artillery in the Scrollhammer rulebook). The Onager artillery model may not move, only pivot, and requires at least one crewman to make use of the special shooting attack. If an Onager unit is forced to Fall Back while not locked in combat, and contains one or more artillery pieces, instead remove an artillery piece as a casualty.

Onagers fire with the following profile-

  • Move or Fire 1, Blast, Barrage, 12-60” range, S7AP3, Multiple Wounds (d6), rolls 2d6 armor penetration against buildings.

Mechanical: The Onager model is Immune to Poison and Immune to Disease.

The crew of each artillery may:

  • Upgrade one model to Engineer(+1 BS, +1 Ld) for +10 pts
  • Take shields for +1 pts per model

Each Engineer may replace his or her armor with Glass Armor for +4 pts


Field BallistaeEdit

Ballista111.jpg

Similar to the Onager, Field Ballistae are another torsion powered siege weapon. These are somewhat more elaborate and large; their destructive power that of springs and flexed wood. These ballistae are able to fire one of a number of different ammunition types- grapeshot, armor piercing spears, so on. While less effective at destroying fortified buildings, field ballistae are a menace to large blocks of infantry, the bolts tearing through enemy ranks with surprising ease.

90 pts per artillery. Support. Skirmish, Artillery, Imperial. 1 to 3 artillery per unit.

25mm x 25mm base(crew). 50mm x 100mm base(ballistae).

Special Rules: Ballistae: Ballistae are made up of crew and the actual artillery piece, with oncoming ranged attacks being split between the two(see rules for artillery in the Scrollhammer rulebook). The Ballistae models may not move, only pivot, and requires at least one crewman to make use of the special shooting attack. If a Ballistae unit is forced to Fall Back while not locked in combat, and contains one or more artillery pieces, instead remove an artillery piece as a casualty.

Each shooting phase, the unit may choose to fire single bolts, or a grapeshot of rocks, with the following profiles-

  • Single bolt: Move or Fire 1, 48” range, S6 AP6, Multiple Wounds (d3), rolls 3d6 for armour penetration against buildings. For each unsaved wound(before muliplying) caused by a Single Bolt shot, resolve a hit at -1S -1AP against the closest model(randomly chosen if tied) in that same unit that is directly behind the wounded model(from the perspective of the shortest distance that can be fired between the Ballistae artillery pieces and the unit being shot at).
  • Grapeshot: Move or Fire 3d6(roll number of shots for each model each time), 36” range, S4AP0

Mechanical: The Ballistae model is Immune to Poison and Immune to Disease.

Each artillery unit may:

  • Upgrade one model to Engineer(+1 BS, +1 Ld) for +10 pts
  • Take shields for each model for +1 pt per model

Each Engineer may replace his or her armor with Glass Armor for +4 pts

Special CharactersEdit

The BladesEdit

The Blades are the hidden agents of the Emperor, those that perform the function of his eyes, hands, and ears. Before becoming extinct in the late fourth era the blades were an honored class, one that often could be seen in public. Many served as diplomats or in courts. While out in the field the Blades were excellent in the acts of espionage and disguise, often passing themselves off as commoners or beggars. They trace their routes back to the original Akavir Dragonguard, who first came to Tamriel to exterminate the monsters. The men and women ended up being defeated by the Dragonborn Reman, and swore fealty to the man, becoming his personal bodyguard. As the ages passed their numbers swelled, and they continued to protect the successive Dragonborn Emperors, with their lives when needed. Masters of both deception and combat, the Blades are some of the most capable warriors in Tamriel. Clever and strong alike, they have had a crucial role in many of histories most notable events, such as personally discovering the Nerevarine reborn and helping end the Oblivion Crisis.

75 pts per model. Elite(0-1). Skirmish, Infantry, Imperial. 3-10 models per unit

Special Rules: Legionnaire Drilling, Stubborn, Infiltrate, Preferred Enemy(Dragons and Altmer)

Death Before Failure: The Blades have occasionally failed to protect the Emperor in the past, and loathe to do so again. Whenever an unsaved wound might be taken to an Emperor hero in the same unit as the Blades, they instead take the wound on a d6 roll of 2+(no saves allowed, obviously). Emperors protected in this manner may not be challenged.

Champions are Characters.

One model may be upgraded to Champion (+1 A) for +15 pts

Each model may choose to replace his hand weapons with:

  • Daedric +20 pts per weapon

Each Blade may take up to 20 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory.


Tiber Septim, God-EmperorEdit

General Talos, Hjalti Early-Beard, the Great Dragonborn, Ysmir

Talos Shrine.jpg

For a man that ascended to the rank of divinity, it is hardly surprising that most of Tiber Septims life is shrouded in mystery and debate. What is known and agreed upon him is that Septim had once been a man, albeit a gifted and troubled one. His tale is such-

At a young age Tiber Septim found himself in the frozen lands of Skyrim, drawn to the High Peak of the Greybeards. It was there that they recognized his Dragon blood. For many a year he journeyed between various chieftains and the Greybeards learning all he could about both the power of the Thuum and also the careful application of war. It was here, in Skyrim, that he lay the foundations for his upcoming conquests of Tamriel. At the age of twenty, already an accomplished shouter and tactician, he led the invasion of Old Hrol'dan- taking the place back from the Witchmen of High Rock. Now with both Colovia and Skyrim at his command, the Greybeards soon began gathering great storms to their peak, letting all know that something important must be spoken to the world. They removed their gags and spoke Tiber Septims name- causing the very foundations of the World to shake. They then told him that to rule Tamriel and save the world from the Elves he must first look to the South.

His forces marched upon Cyrodil in the coldest breath of winter using their natural affinity for the cold to their advantage. For a while their armies were stalled by the citadel of Sancre Tor. There Tiber received a vision, one that revealed to him the hidden artifact called the Amulet of Kings. Leaving behind a small detachment to keep on the siege, the rest of his forces set out in search for the particular item. By the time he had returned the siege had turned to chaos, the two armies becoming embroiled in combat with heavy casualties on each side. With his personal handful of men Tiber Septim entered the citadel and confronted the enemy lords and nobles. Here he gave them his ultimatum- swear fealty to him or die. The vast majority of them agreed, and it was then that he demonstrated his Thuum to the Cyrodilic Army, demonstrating his power of the voice, Dragonblood, and mantle of Talos.

Working his way into Cyrodil, Talos-Septim began rallying many of the disparate groups of Imperials to his side. The King of Falkreath, in Western Cyrodil, adopted Talos as his general. Together the two of them united that nation within a year. At the end of it all Cuhlecain sought to crown himself emperor. Dissatisfied with this Talos saw to it that the king be assassinated. To cover the evidence he ended up burning the capital, and some say even slit his own throat to try to pass the blame from himself.

With the cosmopolitan of Cyrodil under his belt, and Skyrim and West Rock alike, the rest of his conquests over disparate states were somewhat straight-forward. His forces became especially dug into Morrowind eventually when the Emperor wished for control over Vvardenfell's ebony supplies. His long-time ally (and arguably a different aspect of Talos) Ysmir had also stressed that he might be able to take the Tribunals power. Septim and the Tribunal eventually made a deal called the Armistice, one that would submit them to this new Empire but allow them to keep their beliefs. An ancient enemy of Morrowind, Ysmir soon left Talos's side out of disgust.

After invading the Elven lands Tiber led a long and prosperous life as the Emperor of Tamriel. A number of attempted coups were made against him, but all failed. On his deathbed Tiber named Pelagius, his grandson as his heir, and ascended to godhood.

So ends the tale of Septim, Shezzarine, Hjalti Early-Beard, Ysmir, the warrior imbued with the power of Shor, he who embodies the myth of the great king who founds empires. Almost single handedly he had turned the pantheon of the Eight Divines to the Nine Divines, and united all of Tamriel, eternally earning a place in history.

450 pts. Tiber Septim can be taken as a replacement for a Captain in an Imperial Legion list greater than or equal to 2000 points, or as a replacement for a Jarl in a Holds of Skyrim list greater than or equal to 2000 points. Independent Character, Skirmish, Infantry, Nord. Single Model.

Martin SeptimEdit

At the turning of the Fourth Age, Emperor Uriel Septim VII was assassinated by the Mythic Dawn, who were part of a conspiracy to summon Mehrunes Dagon and lay waste to Tamriel. While all the Emperor's known heirs had been killed, one unknown son had survived- Martin Septim. The illegitimate son of Uriel Septim VII, he had been cast out at a young age. As an act of kindness the Grand Master of the Blades Jauffre agreed to whisk him away to safety.

Little is know about Martin's early life, save that he used to worship Sanguine and indulge in hedonism. Later in his years he ended up joining the Imperial Cult to atone for a horrid tragedy. And during the late parts of the Oblivion Crisis Martin contributed greatly to defeating Mehrunes Dagon. A kind and good natured soul, his past experience in Daedra Worship made him exceptionally useful in combating the fiends during the crisis. Not only was he able to translate the Mysterium Xarxes, and still later assist his men fight Daedra, but also impart upon the troops knowledge of the Daedra weaknesses and strengths. He fell in the Battle for the Imperial City- it was there he transformed into the Avatar of Akatosh, engaged the Daedra Prince in personal combat, and banished Mehrunes Dagon from the material plane.

Many of the Imperials view Martin with great reverence nearing that of Tiber Septim himself. The hardened statue of the Avatar of Akatosh, which was once Martin, can still be seen in the Temple of the One. There it remains crouched in a ferocious pose, looking much as it did when it struck down the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon.

280 pts. Martin Septim can be taken as a replacement for a Captain. Independent Character, Skirmish, Infantry, Imperial. Single Model.

An army containing Martin Septim cannot ally with Daedra Cults dedicated to Mehrunes Dagon, but are Grudging Allies with Daedra Cults aligned with Azura, Boethiah, Clavicus Vile, Hermaeus Mora, Mephala, and Meridia.

Saint AlessiaEdit

Slave-queen, the First Empress of Man, Bringer of the Nine

Long ago, during the first Era, mankind as a whole suffered greatly under the control of the Ayleids. The Nedes (or ancient ancestors of both Cyrodil and Nord) were forced into slavery by the elves, those arriving from far off-lands to the Nibenay Bay quickly being forced into population centers. Man served as beasts of burden, and playthings, festering beneath their masters. It was a rare and pleasant occurrence that they might be treated more then animals, the vast majority of them not even holding a name.

While much of her early life is unknown, it is in this environment that Saint Allesia grew up. A compassionate soul, and kind being of the truest sort, the young woman found hope in helping her fellow Nedes. This is how she spent her time, up until finding a beacon of hope. In the second century of the first Era, the Nordic King managed to force the Ayleids completely out of Skyrim, also forming the first human kingdom of Tamriel. The Cyrodil slaves looked to this great act and began wondering why they could not do the same. It is then that Alessia began praying to the Nordic Divines, hoping that these new gods might help lead her people to freedom.

This came sooner then she might have guessed. Kynareth, Nordic Kyne, sent unto her his demigod son Morihaus. Aiding and helping her as needed, Alessia soon was able to began rallying slaves under her banner. It was then that her subordinates began referring to her as the Slave-queen. It is also known that at this time some radical Ayleids had also begun growing sympathetic to the humans cause, the resulting confusion and strife further helping Alessia gather forces. As time passed the divines lent her more help, such as granting her visions, and sending her another demi-god assistant, this time the fabled Pelinal Whitestrake.

It was he who led her first army against the Ayleids in 1E, 242, and quickly devastated them, entirely crushing the elves. Almost immediately after their great victory, impressed by the Grand Crusader, the Nordic King agreed to join their forces and together launch an offense against the Ayleids. After a long and bloody battle, Pelinus, the Grand Crusader, struck down the equally divine Ayleid King. Gloating and taunting the enemy forces, they quickly chopped him into eight pieces and left them for Alessia and Morihaus. Even with the great general dead however Alessia continued to fight the Ayleids, eventually driving them free from Cyrodil and the White Tower, ending the Ayleid reign over man. Soon after the Saint was crowned as the first Empress of Cyrodil and led a long and happy reign over her subjects.

Upon her deathbed Alessia was visited by Lorkhan, who brought with him a pact from Akatosh himself. Alessia was infused with the god's divine blood then placed within the newly formed Amulet of Kings. The Oblivion Gates that had so long been open, spilling misery into the lands, were closed. It was then decreed that her soul would function as a seal, and so long as one of heir bloodline wore the amulet, the gates would be kept shut. Posthumously named a saint, it is said she finally joined Pelinal in the divine realms above.

The legacy Saint Alessia has left on Tamriel is awing- over the course of her life she had freed mankind from slavery, formed the first Empire of Cyrodil. Cut off Daedric access to the world. Founded the religion of the Eight Divines. Few figures in history can even begin to compare.

Pelinal Whitestrake, the Divine CrusaderEdit

Divine Crusader by Drew B52.jpg

In the times of legend it is said that the semi-divine Pelinal wandered the world fighting for man under many aliases. It is when he joined forces with Alessia, however, that he would forever mark his place in history.

When the son of Shor, champion of Akatosh heard of Alessia the slave-queen, he came to her camp to pledge his loyalty. He met her holding a mace and sword, both encrusted with smashed Elven intestines, feathers, and pearls- the markings of the Ayleids. (So was he like) Though this figure seemed raving mad, and full of fury, Alessia also saw that he was unworldly and wished to help her people.

The man soon became feared and hated by every Ayleid that walked Tamriel- rather then engage them in open combat, or lead rallied men upon them, he instead sought out each of their sorcerer-kings in turn and challenged them to personal combat. Acts such as eating their neck-veins while screaming praises to unknown gods, smashing their skulls upon altars, and bathing in their blood were entirely too common. For this reason it was said that Whitestrake "Had no heart under his armor, only the rage of a mindless dragon." This is rather accurate. When a favored hopilite slave, Huna, fell, the man went into such a rage that he began destroying all of Cyrodil- and it was only when Alessia begged the gods for help that he ceased.

Late towards the end of the war for freedom the Nedic forces were unnerved by the site of the White Gold tower, and the storms that raged about it. Halting to take council, and prepare for the attack, Whitestrake shouted unto them that they were all cowards, insulting each of them in turn, and set into the city by himself. There he challenged their half-daedric sorcerer king, Umaril the Unfeathered, to personal combat. It was only when Pelinal had already been wounded by many Daedra, his blood spilled for the first time, that Umaril heeded his screams to face him. The battle that raged was fearsome, and the two struck and wounded each other in equal measure. Facing the end of his life, Whitestrake managed to rip off the half-ayleid's wings and kill him.

Pelinal was struck down by the Ayleids soon after when he had begun laughing about the ugliness of Umaril's angel helmet, also heatedly and recklessly insulting the heritage of all the elves about him. They chopped the wounded Whitestrake into eight pieces, a symbolic number, and left these to later be found by Alessia. It was then his disembodied head hushedly spoke unto her, telling Alessia that Umaril had not been slain entirely since the sorcerer was part-daedra, and that he had failed his duty.

Later Whitestrake somehow appeared at Alessia's deathbed, and then joined her in the divine realms. And while saintly orders would later fight in his name, and he was instrumental in freeing man, even later defeating Umaril Returned with the Hero of Cyrodil, Whitestrake is remembered particularly for his divine strength and madness.

Knights of the Nine DivinesEdit

The Knights of the Nine are the crusaders charged with searching, and retrieving the artifacts of the Divine Crusader, Pelinal Whitestrake. They were first founded in the second century of the Third Era, and it is when they defeated the Wyrm of Elyngleen that they began to grow in fame. Their numbers had swollen and they proceeded to retrieve a handful of more relics from the many quests. Sadly the great triumphs and deeds of the knights were fated to fall to ruin. In 3E 121 the knights became troubled during the War of the Red Diamond, the forces split and wishing to fight for their own respective sides. Many of the Knights had families with stakes in the war, such as loss of wealth or death, and thusly quit the order.

After the war the Knights grew more and more distant from what their order had originally intended. Where they had once been noble and mighty individuals, they now began to grow greedy and violent. Those Knights that did not rise to positions of power, or get themselves killed, were often cursed by the Nine Divines themselves, punishing them for their recklessness. Sir Amiel, the leader of the Knights, remained true to what they had said. After the Oblivion Crisis in 3E 433, with the fruits of the last knight's mission, it is said that the Hero of Kvatch had begun rallying knights to the order to go set out and destroy the returned Umaril.

The Knights themselves are a glory to behold- while at a glance they may seem somewhat mundanely armored, and hardly decorated, they carry with them an overwhelming aura of fidelity and serenity. To look upon the Knights of the Nine is to feel at peace... save when one is at the charging end of them. It is also said that each of the Knights fights with the strength of five men- and considering they carry the blessings of the gods this is hardly circumspect.

50 pts per model. Elite. Fight in Ranks, Cavalry, Imperial. 5-9 models per unit. May only be joined by Independent Characters who are also riding Horses.

General TulliusEdit

General-Tullius-Imperial.png

General Tullius was the commander of the Imperial Legion, and military governor in Skyrim, during the Skyrim civil war.

An extremely clever individual, and shrewd tactician, Tullius was one of the the most capable men of ending the war besieging Skyrim. During Alduin's attack on Helgen he displayed an impressive knack for command, whipping the present Legion forces into a serviceable defense, also managing to have all the townsfolk lead to safety. He even managed to capture Ulfric Stormcloak, for a time, which clearly says something about his espionage abilities.

General Tullius bears a particularly strong hatred for the Thalmor- not only for causing war and death across all of Tamriel, but also for forcing the White-Gold Concordat upon the Empire and banning the worship of Talos. And while he does not understand the traditions of the Nords, or why they fight, he eventually came to respect them greatly.
