The Royal Army was a grand military venture that drew conscripts from all regions of the Re-Estize Kingdom. However, individually the soldiers that composed of the army were weak farmers. Its only advantage was using sheer force of numbers to achieve victory against its foe.
By Jugem's estimation majority of the conscripted men in the Kingdom's Army would be at most level 2. Trained soldiers hired and under the service of the nobility would be around level 10.
- 50,000 militia soldiers are needed to stand against one legion, which consists of 10,000 trained knights, from the Imperial Army of the Baharuth Empire.
- The favorite tactic of the Royal Army against the Imperial Army is the spearwall.
