Abridged History of the 10th Age
Company of the Flaming Standard
Another of the mercenary companies that emerged from the almost constant wars of the Free Cities of the East, the Flaming Standard is composed mostly of Easterners. There are a good number of goblins in the Standard alongside the other humans and demihumans. The Flaming standard is known for their unorthodox get-anything-done tactics and utter ruthlessness. They work mostly for the lords and councils of the Free Cities; however, the Flaming Standard has been known to send small groups out to perform high paying jobs.
Their name is so black in the West and North that simply the appearance of their standard with its horrific flames is often enough to accomplish their goals for them, causing other units to surrender or flee.
