Language: English

The Kingdom of Dragoc has a rather unconventional military structure: it does not have a standing army - save for the 10 000-strong border guard - but rather, it has heavily localized conscription. Every able-bodied adult man is conscripted for at least two or three years of training, and even after that, they continue to train with the bow and the sword, as well as hunt. In times of conflict, around 30% of all able-bodied and already-trained men are drafted and mobilized.

Dragoc doesn't have artillery or conventional cavalry like other Artograchian states. It only has infantry and pegasus-riding cavalry. The favoured method of fighting is guerrilla warfare, and the favoured type of unit is swordsman-archer hybrids: warriors who are supposed to be equally good with the sword and the bow.
