The Defenders of the Fleur-de-lis are a Knights Errant Regiment of Renown for Brettonia.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Defenders of the Fleur de Lys, were Repanse's loyal retainers, the flower of Lyonesse's chivalry. All were willing to follow the banner of Repanse de Lyonesse into whatever peril it may have led. For these were the sons of the Dukedom of Lyonesse, and like the young Knights Errant, they were convinced that the spirit that moved within Repanse came from the Lady herself, giving them holy purpose in battle. These knights formed the main strike force of the army, capable of breaking and routing most enemies with ease. They were lead by Repanse herself.[1]

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • Armoured & Shielded: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage. Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
  • Anti-Infantry: Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
  • Frenzy: Units with frenzy cause more damage while their leadership is high.

On top of the Frenzy ability these Knights also have silver shields (55% missile block chance) over bronze shields. This makes them a more vicious Knights Errant that can deal more damage and be less vulnerable to missiles. The stat buffs from being a rank 9 unit also help provide increase offensive and defensive capabilities. Overall, not a groundbreaking unit, but a more combat efficient Knights Errant that can put up solid performances.
