Alantor is a warrior nation, fuelled by honour and a distinct code of chivalry to protect the innocent and uphold the law. Total faith in the monarchy to keep them safe is compounded by a devout faith in their deity Victirus, who many believe has blessed their king Ralor with eternal life.

Naval Forces

Escort ClassAlantorian Crusader
The crusader is a ship crafted almost exclusively for younger children of nobles and errant adventurers. It is the fastest of all Alantor-crafted ships, with its only real armament being a catapult on the fore deck.
 (100)
Escort ClassAlantorian Warden
The warden is a small ship hired by coastal knights, designed to protect their holdings, and manned by yeomen and peasants from their fiefdom.
 (50)
Ship of the LineAlantorian Seneschal
The seneschal of Alantor is a ship that Ralor Massif requires all his major landholding subjects to construct and maintain. This construction is subsidised by the crown, although it is not uncommon for many of the highest ranking nobles to customise it with modifications. The Seneschal, as its name implies is a mostly defensive ship; it is designed to patrol the coastal waters of Alantor.
 (500)
Ship of the LineAlantorian Victory
The Victory, is one of the most eponymous of Alantor warships. Designed to charge full tilt at the enemy lines and deliver the killing blow to left and to right of it. Its commanders despite what you might first imagine are not impetuous youngbloods seeking greater glory for themselves, but seasoned veterans, who realise that a fast attack is often the key to breaking an enemy’s spirit and forcing them from the field, and in the process saving your own subjects from certain destruction. The victory itself is a solid-looking ship with thick armour and two decks or ominous looking weaponry stowed beneath the decks.
 (250)
FlagshipKing's Ark
Heading many of the fleets of Alantor, is the King’s Ark. These ships are authorised for construction by King Ralor Masif himself. At first glance they are under-equipped compared to other ships of the same size, however, they hide a secret weapon; a cohort of Knights Templar
 (100)
FlagshipAlantorian Drakeslayer
The Drake-Salyer is sleeker than one would expect of most Alantor ships, designed to engage in aerial combat against foes such as drakes. Its ballista is forged in the city of Berkit and blessed by the priests of Victirus in that city. The final result is designed as a sleek vessel for a lord or other to take the fight to the enemies of Victirus and the Grand alliance.
