The Soldier

Soldiers are typically men (though sometimes women) who are part of a standing army. They are much like Mercenaries in training, though they fight because they were conscripted or because of a sense of duty to country rather than money. Also unlike mercenaries The Fighter and Sorcerers are rarely part of their ranks, though Guardians are from time to time. Militia troops are considered soldiers, though they don’t maintain the discipline and training of full time soldiers.

It is rare to find large collections of soldiers and massive standing armies because of the expense to keep men from fields, crafts, and other pursuits. So a small core of soldiers will be aided by conscripts and militia should war come. During periods of peace soldiers will man patrols along roads and near borders or man a guard post usually along the same.

Becoming a soldier is fairly easy as most armies will have a formal procedure about how to enlist. Should conscription come it becomes harder not to be in the army then in. Usually however new soldiers train under experienced ones who act as instructors.
