Saviors of Rhillau
The elven army is the primary military expeditionary force for the kingdom. While typically not called upon, they stand ready to march whenever the situation arises. The army performs regular drills and wargames in times of peace, in order to keep themselves sharp. A good portion wait in reserve as members of the Sentinels, a defensive pseudo-military police force under the ultimate command of the army. They make up the ranks of the city guard in every elven settlement, and often patrol the roads between them.
Currently, the main force of the elven army is dispatched, at war in the northeast with an ancient lich necromancer and her seemingly-endless horde of undead abominations. Most mercenary troupes have joined the fight, as well, for the promise of a large payoff. Even still, the military academy in Vallinde continues to take its time in training young soldiers for war, graduating them as they are ready, rather than pushing ill-prepared cannon fodder into the fray.
Elf or half-elf characters in martial or military classes may start play as graduates of the military academy
