Are there official numbers that go with those?

Are you allowed to release those, if so?

If all the above are "yes"es... is it a reasonable amount of work to ask you to do?

Most infantry regiments have a nominal thousand troops; cavalry around five hundred. Magical units tend to vary.

Much of the 'data' is derived from the Dragon Pass boardgame.

Did you replace Sir Narib's company (Nochet-based, according to Harald's city map) with Mularik? I'm missing Baron Sanuel from Smithstone, too.

I would make the Swordbrothers Praxian.  

The Flash Jack, Amber and Potor were once said (verbally) to be Pol Joni related (ie they weren't pol joni but had similar origins) rather than Praxian.  I have no idea what the current story is.

I believe that Narib and Sanuel are no longer canonical.

I believe that the Swordbrothers include members of all Praxian tribes, as well as a number of non-Praxians.

I believed that:

  • Flash Jack and the Ambers are High Llama Tribe magical societies.
  • Potor are a Bison Tribe magical society.

However, it seems I am incorrect regarding Potor. Will update my notes.

While I haven't been a guardian of Gloranthan canonicity for more than a decade now, I am fairly confident that the original units of the Dragon Pass boardgame are being kept canonical.

There are (unpublished, of course) fragments of stories about the Seshnegi venture in Kethaela and Kerofinela which probably draw upon these characters.

There may well be changes to Sanuel's presentation as of Dragon Pass: Land of Doom, but I don't think he will be written out of Gloranthan canon entirely. Why, even Redbird the Sage remains...

Peter confirmed the re-appearance of Sir Narib in the recent Nochet project, and I am confident that we will see something of Sanuel in the planned Heortland volume of the Kethaelan books.

Is it just me, or does "Narib" sound a bit like a Pithdaran name?

Sir Narib's Hall and Sir Narib's Compnay Barracks appear on the map of Nochet just south of the Harmast Gate.  The map in question is a recent one and put up http://www.glorantha.com/nochet-city-of-queens/

That may be, but in talking with Jeff a year or two ago, Narib was replaced by Mularik, at least in the Sartar Free Army. Of course, things may have changed since then.

I also understood that Sanuel was removed, but again, things may have changed.

Additional: I've checked through some Army Lists Jeff authored a few years ago: Sanuel appears in the earliest draft but is later replaced by Mularik. Narib was never listed. Things may have changed...

Yes, Sir Narib exists and, yes, his company still exists.  It was missed in the original army list and Jeff has a writeup for it.

Would be interested in any information you can share. Is the Company divided into the Stags and Boars?

Here's a couple of the index references from the Nochet Guide that are pertinent.  I believe Sir Narib has largely hired Heortlanders and Esrolians to protect his sorcerers.

M22.Sir Narib’s Company’s Barracks.  Current residence of Sir Narib’s mercenary company when not out in the field in service.  Narib paid the Caprati family handsomely to take over this building.

M23.Sir Narib’s Hall.  An adventurer from Pithdaros, Narib was once a sorcerer in the service of King Rikard of Malkonwal. When his king fled from the Lunar Empire in 1620, Narib formed a “company” with the surviving sorcerers; Sir Narib’s company found its way to Esrolia where he has variously hired out his followers to those willing to pay.  Narib is indifferent to the local Malkioni and does not acknowledge the leadership of any local Talar, though he has found several recruits from amongst the local Esvulari including Tathorine, daughter of the Speaker of Aeol!

M27.House of the Stag.  The warrior society of the Stag meets here to learn and practice its skills.  They are known for their speed and maneuverability and serve the Caprati family.  Horali of the Stag regiment never sport beards or mustaches and keep their hair cropped.

M28.House of the Boar.  The warrior society of the Boar is housed here.  Known for their tenacious and ferocious attacks, as well as their thick and bristly mustaches, they are sworn to the du Tumerine family.

Looking at Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes, page 231, the Potor are described as a Pol-Joni clan, formed from refugees of the Dundealos tribe. Am wondering if canon has changed?

Maybe, my info is unpublished so Sartar is correct.
