Swordlords of Restov
A group of independent warriors who graduated from the Aldori Swordfighting school. They were the first settlers of Rostland and were colonists from Taldan – under the leadership of Baron Sirian First. The hand-picked members swore to a Swordpact where it is forbidden for them to teach the fighting techniques to those who are not sworn in.
The group was feared throughout the continent and ruled Rostland until the Surtovas arrived. Afterwards, most of the swordlords wandered elswhere as sell-swords etc, but some remain and the school remains.
They are heroes of the people, but are not officially in charge. Though they have a lot of influence over the people of Rostland.
