Droaam: Graywall and Long Shadows
The Flayer Guard
The Flayer Guard resides in the Throne District and is both a peacekeeping force for greater Greywall and amongst the most well-disciplined and well-equipped military units Droaam can field. It is led by Korgel Blackblade, a battle hardened troll champion who wields an enchanted greatsword in combat. . The majority of the guards are orcs and minotaurs, along with a few ogres and trolls (remarkably intelligent for their kind, but still saved for brute force operations). The Flayer Guard does though have a number of special units, including a squad of gargoyles and harpy archers used for scouting and goblin tunnel crawler commandos. At its core, the most fearsome unit within the guard is a group of 20 elite war trolls rumored to have been trained by Daughters own Sora Maenya. In addition to the roughly 300 soldiers of the Flayer Guard, the gnolls of the Znir Pact keep 100 troops garrisoned in the town. Xorchylic can call in the Pact as needed, especially when needing to track down individuals trying to flee the city. Although it has the trappings of a border town, Graywall is also a military outpost that stands ready to defend the pass against Brelish aggression . . . or to launch a raid, if it comes to that. The guard stand ever ready to face a challenge from Breland—or to launch an attack against the eastern kingdoms. In addition, members of the labor force undergo basic militia training and can take up arms if necessary. In comparison to the Flayer Guard, this militia is poorly organized and has limited equipment, but the natural abilities of the creatures still make it a force with which to be reckoned.
