They were your mighty soldiers. Their helmets and shields adorned your barracks walls, and they won battle decorations for you. 11 Mercenaries from Arvad and Helech stood guard duty on your walls, while brave men manned your towers. They hung their shields all around your walls just the right touch to perfect your interior decorating!"
