The brave soldiers who make up the infantry of Aquilonia come from all the provinces of the land. Proud Attalusians, grey-eyed Bossonians, hardy Gunderman, chivalrous Poitainians and sly Tauranians make up their ranks and they take pride in their diversity.
Each recruit is given a set of armor, javelins, a pike, and a shield. They are taught to withstand the charge of cavalry, to form a shield wall and to break their enemies. They fight together and die together.
The stiffened leather crosspiece on these sandals protects the feet against savage blows stuck during the inevitable clash of shields. Still, it is not uncommon to encounter veterans with missing toes - a souvenir of their time spent on the front lines.
Offering significantly more protection than light armor, this medium armor incorporates many elements that balance protection and agility. This middle of the road approach brings compromises of its own because this armor is neither as strong as heavy armor, nor as flexible as light armor.
