Twelve Blades Company
The Twelve Blades Company has a long history, started by 12 expert bladesmen who it is said decided that since they were collectively worth a whole company of other mercenaries that they should be treated as one. For over a decade these 12 people fought other mercenary companies to a stand still without help, but as they started to get older they slowly started collecting disciples to their style until they had a real company around them and even standing armies would decide to go elsewhere then face them company to company.
While the originators have all passed on the company persists and they are a specialist sword unit, having foot skirmishers and horse skirmishers in their ranks. This is unusual as swords are more often then not secondary weapons in war with polearms being the most common foot weapon and javelins or lances being the most common horsemans weapons.
